not much to report here. how are you all?
wish I hadn't because I feel a bit crap this morning.
Also, today's the first day of the girlfriend being in Iceland for a whole month which is a bit rubbish.
Got Deus Ex to play tonight though which is a bonus.
deus ex is on my list
I've been up since 5. No idea why! This morning I am having peanut butter on toast and waiting for the call from Endemol...
This afternoon I'm off to see my Sister. WAY too tired to cope with the mental children! :D
Are you going on Big Brother?
:D I wish I could lie and make you think I'm going in...I'm not.
No, it's about a job!
I'm a pretty bad liar. By bad, I don't mean good. :D
I'm a bad / good liar. By this I mean:
- I don't lie much
- Therefore people trust me (generally)
- If I lie, I would probably look suspicious to someone who didn't know / trust me
- But people tend to give me the benefit of the doubt
does that make sense?
I get the guilty laughter if I lie. Or have an internal freakout if it's something serious.
I can't handle being lied to, and you always know..don't you?! So no, I don't want to be that person.
I can't fucking do it though, it makes my face fold up in a weird way. Which should be the perfect disguise, but it's incredibly easy to read. For the best, I suppose.
oh yeah it's my birthday tomorrow. i am going to brewdog tomorrow night for drinks and maybe get a takeaway. tonight i am making dinner which should be good.
fedex didn't deliver a package i ordered yesterday; didn't even try. fucking wankers. it's under 'address query' on their site for some fucked reason. twats.
Every time I nodded off to sleep, my partner started laughing hysterically in her sleep. Ordinarily I'd just get cross about this and tell her off the next day, but today she's going wedding dress shopping so I consider her dream-laughing to be INCREDIBLY SINISTER.
I do this. It's not our fault. Back off, YEAH?
When are you getting married?
Wedding's not for a year yet. Venue's booked and save the dates have been sent... frankly, dress shopping is creeping me out. All the more so because of her MALEVOLENT CACKLING.
I had to have my dress altered three times when my Sister got married.
Chill out love. This is way to early to get freaked out! Give it 6 months.
i have done TWO THINGS already, which is brilliant.
- Went to Nandos last night
- The bus driver said my boyfriend was 'the perfect gentleman' for waiting with me at the bus stop
- I'm going to buy a coat at lunch
- A man stepped on my toe in the lift :(
It's a sad state of affairs.
but then he ruins it by saying "ooh your mum" or flapping his cock around.
The last person I had anything to do with was VERY gentlemanly. It's nice.
Men! Be more gentlemanly.
just because you don't have anyone to flap your cock around to.
So that's you and Sam, now. Brilliant. Cheers.
and my phone.
Yes. Men! Hold doors open for women. A man dropped a door IN MY FACE last night.
needs more love
Are you okay?
I didn't use numbers as speechmarks. Why are you seeing that and i'm not?
I'm really enjoying this thread this morning.
(I've had my 4 espressos)
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
I don't understand
which will be nice.
Need to ring some people who failed to RESPOND to me yesterday. boo.
Three hours of boxfit/conditioning tonight. Dreading it.
I need more than that, please.
El was singing this at me for a while... It was... disturbing.
i changed it from "to" to "for" because chinny was requesting a woman
we got talking over class films like Godfather 3
I'm trying to hear Chintzy elaborate on her need for more than just one girl.
I am disgusted at your belittling of my gender as "kinky"
Heh, hermaphrodite bit
today can only go uphill from here, right?
better off the day going downhill, so you can just coast along
I woke up, saw this advert and cried: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-t5oBglXXs
However it is a total hatchet job and I'm glad to be leaving...
Life's too short to be stuck being unhappy. (I will take my own advice in relation to this, one day.)
this morning? I hope it was because you told them to take the job and shove it.
...and was asked to come up with strategies for things that were bollocks. I told them they were bollocks and that I couldn't do it so they sacked me.
You had a feeling this might happen, right?
Now I'm ONE OF YOU!!! Heh, unemployment tips greatfully received...
I have a job now.
(not really, it's just temp)
I'll get some temp work soon enough...
This bit is the fun bit, anyway. I'll be back before you get suicidal xx
last night, enjoyable guff
gammy knee from over training
though because I work in children's books it's hard to take too seriously. Ah well.
Other than that I'm feeling pretty chirpy. Got a tea on and I'm looking forward to the weekend.
i have nothing further to add.
although i swear that 60%+ of the books that are being released at the moment are either written or illustrated by julia donaldson and/or axel scheiffler (sp?). enough rhyming verse already! (though the little'un loves tabby mctat)
Buy the Gruffalo over and over again =D
the gruffalo is ace - love doing the voices (the fox is posh, the owl is welsh and the snake is hissy).
tabby mctat is on loan from the library at the moment, complete with accompanying CD.
Had never thought of the owl as welsh, but that's brilliant.
what's j_l_b doing in a morning thread?
Sometimes they just can't resist a little post.
is that they're too choked up with laughter at the quality repartee, and know they'll only embarrass themselves if they try to keep up.
Although I hate children (all of them) I would quite like this job. How do I get it please?
Hating children won't hurt.
How are you supposed to do that when you need a job to pay the bills? Madness.
takes effort to look this good! *pokes massive gut*
Tomorrow I'm going to a wedding at which I'm helping out with the DJing. I've never done this before so if I can get the hang of it that'd be handy. Also, my girlfriend is going to be a hot bridesmaid so I get to walk around and scowl jealously at any guys who try and talk to her, and then maybe start a drunken fight. Looking forward to it.
Then on Saturday I'll probably do the Dalston thingy that's going on.
which falls on the weekend of my birthday.
If i'm going I'll be fucking livid.
Might be going to the cinema this evening - also got drinks with work people later, oi oi.
I probably seem too excited for what is a very small bit of work. BUT it's ACTUALLY an exciting job. So it'll be excellent experience.
let it be this
They actually asked me to work on BB at the beginning of summer!
No, this is for the creative team Darlow Smithson. PROPER STUFF.
jaegerbombs all round
That'll make a change, then.
Whoop! Where is it??
Time to know that smack habit on the head...and you'd only just got into it as well!
Aren't all media types on class As? Reckon I'll be fine.
Why do you think I typed; ''Time to know that smack habit on the head''
I'm off my tits!
She was a wonderful trainee of mine in 2007, but far too spirited to end up stuck behind a desk doing turgid city work and so she rightly went off and did a masters in international law/ warfare law, has recently passed out as a Cap'n in HM armed forces and spent 6 months kicking squaddies arses in Cyprus, and is now off to Germany for a year as a top notch legal adviser. I'm so so proud of her, I'm actually get teary (again) thinking about it. I can't decide if I'm teary for her or me, and teh years of wasted opportunity stuck in corporate life pissing it all against a wall. UH OH, midlife crisis approaching.
You're still young!! You have plenty of time to change things up if you want to!
You know how it is <brave smile>
I'll find my 'thing' one of these days. Am currently emailing old contacts on pretext of saying hello, as anytime I do that something usually falls into my lap. (Sometimes my cup of coffee, but sometimes something better) :)
I know, you know I understand this!! We should have a session.
I'm taking 10% royalties on any GUM wisdom you impart
Please tell me I've missed a fun new acronym and this isn't meant to be....
Chintz is just getting through a MASSIVE case of Gingivitis
That's what I did, and LOOK AT ME NOW!
I'm having a life crisis too. We should harness all this frustration somehow
And get tattoos of flaming skulls riding dragons playing guitars on your backs.
Or a dragon smoking a spliff and holding a big sword whilst riding another dragon that's playing the guitar over the background of a flaming skull. With demon horns.
for an animation awards/screening thing at t'Barbican. Then tomorrow off! I want to go to Thorpe Park. Anyone want to come to Thorpe Park with me tomorrow?
but I have a horrific presentation to make in the afternoon. I was genuinely excited for the few seconds before I remembered this =(
Why do peolpe say things like this once I have a job? :D
last time i went i was determined not to be a massive wimp and go on them. Queued up for about two hours for Saw, got to the front then started whimpering. My mates tried to get me to come on but i had to leave cos i thought i was going to be sick with fear.
Didn't even bother queueing for the one which goes like a mile in the air. fuck. that.
mine will have more spacemen than scout's
I missed it if so.
he sounds a bit of a fox
(I'm not going to let that happen, stay away from my dad)
I don't have any 'normal' glasses to wear tomorrow. Can I wear my red ones?
(that's a yes)
Well stone the flamin' crows.
ps. still waiting for an answer on the knob question
but, well...do you have chilli on your person?
