It's all going to hell. How are you coping?
very little sleep, truckload of kids to look after today...still started the Killing II last night, looking good
I'm lying to myself about what happened until I get a solid way to watch the last few episodes.
I shouldn't fancy a beer.
I'd keep that quiet too.
When do you actually leave for uni?
On the plus side I listened to the Drive soundtrack on the way into work and it made me feel like the man; just need a toothpick now
This is only a temporary measure while my duvet (ju-vay) cover dries, but it's working so well I might just stick with it.
I should just open a window but i'm afraid all the giant spiders will get in and crawl on my face
and, in classic comedy style, inhaled a load of the bad stuff. My nose is a bit fucked. I keep sneezing. Is there any way out of this?
i use them to sort my snoring.
I'll probably end up drowning myself in the sink or something stupid. I can see the headlines now, after being found four weeks down the line.
I don't want it to look like I'm picking on the disabled kid.
new LOLmoles please.
I feel fucking fantastic today. Learnt how much my new role was (in an email about 11:30 last night). Picking up my fixed iphone this afternoon, and got asked on TWO dates last night somehow. Probably going to not buy the cyanide I ordered because of the other girl now.
"other girl". I see.
I keep missing all the important events in all the DiSers' lives. Can you guys just start live-blogging everything you do, so that I don't embarrass myself like ^that again?
It sounds like EXACTLY my sort of thing.
to track my increasingly insane and desperate attempts to snare a future mate. You can be a guest contributor if you like, I feel you'll be the cheese world wariness to my chalk wide eyed naivety
I wish I still had an office to myself, I'd have a nap if I did. But no such luck.
Got a colleague's leaving do tonight, we're going to Wahaca. Despite liking Mexican, I've never got around to going before. Really looking forward to it.
Black beans with cheese and crema
That's just HP sauce in rum, right?
if margaritas had rum in, yeah?
Come on though, it's a frigging margarita, not some obscure recipe lost to the 1930s. HYG - what spirit is in, I dunno, a Gin and Tonic? I'll give you three guesses.
I knew it'd catch on.
I reserve the right not to pay attention to it.
I'm not sure when I should drink it. Would now bw acceptable?
Stick it in the fridge, I think it will go down well nicely chilled.
no to tequilla
yes to port
are you my dead nana?
if I see you in those, we're going to have a problem
Ruby port or GTFO. Have it room temperature after a night of heavy drinking to get you ready for bed and stave off a hangover.
Of the traditional ports, tawny is by far the superior drink.
Both white port and rose port are lovely too.
I'm going to be really dull and look up what I should drink it with. Here we go.
Though I might try the hibiscus water instead of the margarita (/as well as).
get churros for pudding
Thomasina Miers' chain is Wahaca.
... Wahaca is the onomatopoeic spelling of Oaxaca, a southern Mexican state and city renowned for its prominent food culture...
Basically they've dumbed it down for the plebs. I swear it was called Oaxaca to begin with, I remember a reviewer banging on about the pronunciation of it.
it gyps me a bit but you can see why they've done it.
really powerful episode about the morality of killing.
contrasting the sometimes rather masochistic methods of training with the trainee's personal views, and trips to military cemeteries, reading a dead man's diary, watching videos of a sniper in action on youtube etc...
I had no expectations of it tbh but the first two episodes have been nothing short of excellent.
So long as I'm not home too late, I will. If I don't, I definitely will tomorrow.
no idea why my pin wouldn't work.
got to finish a calculation today. it's a bit late. but it's grown in size considerably.
+ the trains are now fixed so my commute is back down to a reasonable length of time;
+ I slept really well last night;
+ Last night's recording went well;
+ no clients today!
- staff meeting :(
i'm feeling pretty good this morning. i've a load of mockups to finish in photoshop, which is quite fun because it's for a really girly website so i get to use loads of pink and basically make it extremely tasteless. might make the cursor a tinkerbell one like you used to get on myspace. they'd love that shit.
bad news is i might have to sell a load of guitar gear to tide me over til payday. all i have left is the vintage/rare stuff :( lend me a tenner anyone?
My flatmate broke his ankle playing football last night he got home at 4am and I had to get up to carry his stuff up the stairs. He's going to be an insufferable cunt for weeks I just know it. Is that selfish? I think that's pretty selfish.
Thankfully I have another day off today and I WILL go and watch Drive later but first I've got Spooks and Doctor Who to catch up on. Bliss.
got two magazine to write, sub, proof and get out over the next week.
Then our trade show is in two weeks and we're still working towards that.
But my flatmate bought tickets for the arsenal game last night as my bday present, so wont be able to stay too late tomorrow. So tonight will be very late one.
In sum: :'(
Not long 'til Saturday love :)
gonna be fun times had. And copious amounts of drinks ending in 'ohol'
Important Q: has anyone pressed the red button yet?
I felt like doing a little cry at the time but my bike is now with the bike man being fixed and I have been to the gym already so feel better.
WHAT ABOUT MADE IN CHELSEA LAST NIGHT THEN?
I well fancy Francis now. He's become more attractive to me.
Can someone photoshop my fance onto this girl please?
I'm a bit in love with Binky I think.
I'm going to write an amazing blog post about the Shakespearian underpinnings of MIC and send it to Francis. I think he'll like it.
He's just become really cute in this series. He looked lovely in last nights episode. Maybe I liked him because he was being asked out by loads of people. I dunno. He just looked buff.
Yes. Do that. It sounds good.
Can someone photoshop my FIANCE onto this girl please. which a) made more sense to me and b) made me all excited for a moment/ run out and buy another hat etc.
I didn't realise I type fance and I just decided to ignore Teeej's weirdness.
when cycling and going to the gym. My hands are raw now. I bought them ages ago but took them into work and everyone was like 'you'd look like such a twat wearing those'
Please look at his hands.
gloves or no gloves. Are you saying you're in the same league as Ryan Gosling?
Are you jel?
Can we go and see Drive pls?
I definitely want to see it. I am away this weekend but next? LETS HAVE A DATE AGAIN.
I am looking forward to it. I hope its not a jumpy film again BUT i do hope a man's chair infront of us makes a parping noise and he laughs to his girlfriend about it and she just looks at him.
What was the last cinema date we had? Before The Big Lebowski?
Just PM me, your boyfriend might see this.
He has his own league
Now it tears me apart to think I can never have his babies.
dont try me sunshine. not today.
spotify have robbed me of my premium service :(
every time someone scores a conversion, they play its a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll? amazing.
Thunderstruck would make for a more appropriate choice.
is entirely ruined, and now my manager is being annoying about something (dunno what, stopped listening).
today's my day off except I have to do lots of stuff and my timetable doesnt work and I thought I was going to be in 7 hours a week and I'm actually in 14+ hours a week :(
I would have never made 14+ hours a week as a student.
but I do lots of other stuff (pro bono, chair a (pretty dormant) society, write for a newspaper, mentoring, arabic class, feminist group, bit of political stuff, hopefully going to be an british council ambassador for something, hopefully going to be assistant editor of a review) and I want to get a good degree and I am doing 20 extra credits this semester and need to write a dissertation proposal and I have 8 essays due in in the next two months. And I want to have a life too.
I just played football manager and took a bathload of ket every week.
I should probably not worry as much about not being able to get on the career ladder and stuff. Or get a rich husband/wifey.
Still, a sense of self worth is important. I would recommend following my particular lifestyle
all week...i don't feel like sunshine and warmth
Big pay-off. Got the 'Real Human Being' song on loop in my head, I'm rolling with a swagger today.
and the soundtrack is great too
is whether to have coffee or tea and a biscuit or a criossant (they've overcatered the breakfast meeting again, hurrah). Long may this easypeasy stuff continue!
Oh well, i jinxed that as I've now just had an email telling me that the CFO of one of my biggest clients has resigned, and now their share price is going to bomb and the funders who are supposed to be completing their equity investment today or tomorrow are inevitably going to pull out when they hear this news, which means 4 weeks of slogging blood and guts over this deal is pretty much down the drain. FFS, I even had to leave my friend's wedding weekend before last to take a conf call with Vancouver in torrential rain because of this deal. I'm so gutted that it's probably going to come to nothing now.
Ok, I'm definitely having a croissant, that much is decided.
In better news, I'm off for dinner at the Canadian High Comission tonight to meet the new chap. The rest of the week is mentally busy and will fly in, so technically I guess it's nearly the weekend.
You're right, this is a bloody minefield
but I've got a massive amount of uni work to do anyhow. Hoping to get it done, make my room less of a filthy mess, sort out a couple of songs I've been working on, and go cycling.
Yesterday I saw a car with the numberplate P15GEX. Which is very nearly PIGSEX. I also saw one that simply said LAD 11. What's the worst number plate you've ever seen?
but there's a mercedes going around Reading with NINJA. No 1's instead of i's or anything, just straight up NINJA.
Must have cost a fucking fortune
with the number plate: E1 PMP. Christ.
'drive' a horse?
There are some sick fucks out there.
last i heard it was up for sale at around £250k.
His plate is MAG1C. Class.
with SEEXX1. Just makes me sad.
Back to work. Got Richmond Fontaine and Thai tonight so that's a plus.
be prepared for a long night then, they played 2.5 hrs when my pa went to see them last week.
SOMETIMES EVERYBODY CRIES
All on audis. Can't remember any though. soz.
can't wait to hear about Nick and Jamie's Excellent Adventure (With Added Mundy). You guys still good for potentially practicing on Saturday?
Nick I think had possible potential-hangover issues with sunday, not sure about sat?
You get 1,000,000,000 points
Mainly because I keep thinking about this
Not having a go, I just don't understand.
I dug out my Cat Power tapes specifically to listen to on the way in. Made it ultra reminiscent listening to it on cassette.
Work better start paying me more otherwise I'm going to quite. Absolutely no way this amount of pressure and stress is worth the money I'm on. GBK are recruiting on Gumtree and I'm seriously tempted. I'm not cut out for proper office jobs, serving burgers is probably just about my level.
a few times recently.
But I do wonder how long it'd be before you got caught embezzling guacamole.
and have lots of cats and dogs. THE END.
I dunno, maybe book a one-way flight to Ouagadougou and report back on a fictitious civil war there.
to be able to do it without a superior looming over me at all times. I tried freelancing once and had 2 commissions but gave up after a day and told them to find someone else.
Ouagadougou sounds fun though.
Or just try a different USB port. Sometimes works.
Plug the charger in and try it again?
Do you mean its got a virus? What anti-virus do you use?
Don't ask me to say it out loud though!
I just said it out loud. It's quite easy.
you are a terrible person
I wouldn't take this from him.
forgot about this. It wouldn't have happened if you'd made any effort to keep it in yours.
phone bumming aside
Phone Bumming: Do you know where your child's phone is right now?
But we're pretty sure we could hear a faint buzzing from - somewhere.
did you get my text?
(not since I called you emo, no)
I was too busy bleeding into my pillow, yeah?!
I FORGOT TO TELL EVERYONE I NEARLY DIED!!!!!
I don't even think this was intentional, was it?
Which, whilst essentially true, was not how it went down. I'm very sorry for my post guys.
I feel a bit sick
BASICALLY Jamie insultedme massively and I proceeded to have the most extreme nose bleed in history all over Hayley's bed whilst these bunch of cunts laughed at me. MOVE ON, NOTHING TO SEE HERE.
Oh my God. OH. MY. GOD
Stop with the in jokes before everyone hates us (more)
just implying you were doing my head in with all the jokes from this weekend but I <3 it really. You must all come over again :D
Can we start again from the top?
What operating system are you using? Don't just say "Windows", please be specific like "Windows 95".
What do you use?
this ICT training for the spackers is going to come in useful
and i dont like what i see.
I bought some ribena.
Not sure why.
I'm quite excited about drinking it though.
Also quite excited about one or more of:
Mastodon - The Hunter
Torche - Meanderthal
Kylesa - Spiral Shadow
Japandroids - Post Nothing
having turned up today.
of the best band t shirts i've seen, one of which i might order shortly. Is No Singles any good?
UPDATE: Ribena DID NOT disappoint.
Got in at around twenty past one and then decided to watch the latest Breaking Bad which kept me wide awake in awe for a good half hour or so afterwards.
Poor decision making frankly, I'm an empty shell of a man today.
Which is weird, because I found my old keys and considered sleeping there this weekend.
are you still looking for somewhere? That room i mentioned in that other flat is still available i think.
I actually am setting myself a deadline to get back to London.
but not until february. I'm thinking of setting up my own flat share though but not sure if I can be bothered/worried I won't find anyone to live with me. I want atleast 3 people in the house.
But I need a job in London first. I'M TRYING.
That would be well good.
i'm clean and do yoga
I will be in touch when it actually comes to doing it.
just got sent http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wretched-Earth-Penguin-Modern-Classics/dp/0141186542 and http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Claude-Chabrol-Collection-DVD/dp/B000EMTJQA/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1317122320&sr=1-1 and made a sandwich
just got sent it at work by someone across the office from me....
i'm up for it.
Like, fucking paraletic.
Tomorro night, however, I start a 4 night drinking cavalcade.
I was pestering xylopwn to make a thread yesterday but he's being not quite but almost literally bumfucked by work right now. I will do one shortly :D
please excuse me when i come in, neck a pint of gin and collapse.
The first one I went to was October (just after my birthday) and that was the second one.
FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY THEMED
(I don't have time to bake a cake, sorry)
fuck. I'm out at a winetasting tomorrow night. I did order some new caketins which I believe were delivered to the house this morning, so I will try some drunken baking tomorrow night when I get back home. or go to a bakers on thursday (more likely).
i want to get even more drunk now.
til I'm finished work for a week and a half to go to Reykjavik, hooray!!
