morning all. how are things?
(to the tune of the chorus of svefn-v-englar by sigur ros)
It is nice and cool in Manchester today, which is a welcome relief. Off to see a friend later, got tomorrow off. WOO!
could do with a thunderstorm
There was no milk in the flat this morning bar a tiny amount for my tea. So no crunchy nut cereal. :(
Fuck me they are sweet. I remember them as the "healthy option" my memory clearly distorts facts.
Was quite powerful in the gym last night, then bumped into a mate from work on the way, out so had a bottle of white while putting the world to rights.
Likelihood of getting out of this office at a decent hour tonight is diminshing by the quarter-hour, though.
The cable that goes from my laptop to my amp is broken- I cannot tell you how upset I am about this. Genuinely the worst morning ever.
before i can fall asleep at my desk and get away with it.
I'm going to the launch of a new property block in Hackney on thursday. Overseas buyers in Hackney. Wtf.
I'm pretty sure it's the most interesting thing that'll happen to me today. Nothing to do at work, didn't stop me getting here quarter of an hour early (no, me neither). This day's going to crawl past at the speed of an arthritic snail, but on the bright side I'm sitting next to the person who just handed in her notice so I look comparatively busy.
Think it's just the start of a cold, but I have a high temp, sore throat, and ache all over. Going to soldier on till deadline at midday then ask to go home (we do fuck all on Tuesday afternoons anyway). I've never taken time off sick before.
I'm going to eat one million oranges.
I'd murder a bit of good OJ right now though.
I mean I too am a bit coldy. I DO WANT SYMPATHY :D
^look what you're doing
People in my office are shouting. I think my front page photo fell through. Considering crawling under my desk.
I think my parents are away in November so I can host the first one.
Except my turn will have to be under the arches at Charing Cross after Pret chuck out their sandwiches.
save me a ham and cheese baguette!
Except for Pret, how awful.
Remember that time you called me a snob?
Oka, do it. Make me go last. If I'm still homeless I will create an 'experience'.
I'm lying, of course. The new falafel sandwich thing they do is amazing. Also fully in favour of the "mayo on everything" policy.
post-fenino illness log: definitely poorly first thing sunday; fine by lunchtime; dog-tired by about 7pm; asleep by 9pm; not too bad yesterday/today (slight sore throat but not fever-y or anything). but then i don't think I got a hug from shucks.
It was Monday when the rot start to set in.
Delayed reaction? Like post-traumatic stress.
I ate too much at bodeans last night and thought I just had the MEAT SWEATS. but this morning I still feel clammy and poorly and stuff hurts.
I might ditch spin class in favour of an hour in the steam room instead.
Sounds like my kind of place.
They do a "game day" deal of a massive sounding feast plus a beer for £15, so I called and asked which games etc. Much to my joy they claim every day as game day, as they show every kind of sport!
*books, eats, and sweats the meats
I've always assumed it was every day.
but I upgraded my baby back ribs to a full rack of Jacob's ladder. With creamed corn on the side. BLISS. (word of warning though, the free beer is a bottle of coors light, bleee.)
Actually maybe light beer (at least one) may help to counter the massive meal i will no doubt eat.
Which one did you/do you go to? Is the Soho one where its at?
(and for getting the boat home). Because of this, Tower Hill has a special place in my heart. <3
When i found out I could travel on a boat, with a beer from the Wharf to the Southbank, I knew that every summer RFH gig just got that bit better.
a they have big flat screens everywhere. Last night was Cardinals v Phillies (I think it was a repeat from Sunday night, Go cards, GO!).
I said to my friend "Wow it's a lot smaller than I'd though" but then got taken downstairs. Loved it there. Also got Game Day special but had NO IDEA you could upgrade to bigger ribs. KATE, WE NEED TO GO BACK.
I now have this high pitched mewl stuck in my head now thanks!(it is making me grin)
finished off season 2 of bored to death last night (super) and then just chilled out to cocteau twins, sweaty in bed even in the nude, glad the warm weather is fading
I'm pretty angry again. Just remembered that's why I stopped using public transport. Considering I'm on a self-imposed morning driving ban (I'm generally too confused/stressed to concentrate), this means I'm walking to work.
OH GOD I NEED A JOB AND A FLAT.
On the other hand, it's mostly uphill on the way back. Boo!
When are you coming to Nottingham?
I do not know.
I have so much to sort out! Hopefully soon, though!
I'm going to see Jurassic Park on Thursday :D
Muldoon is still pretty much my idol.
The weekend ended brilliantly by meeting up with a few friends for drinks on a pub boat thing on embankment. I feel a little tired and sick now though.
Our company has now been taken over and the first thing they've done is install two 50" plasmas in our office. One is just to the left of me. I don't know whats gonna be on the TVs. Probably STATS.
I wasn't paying close enough attention, but was the implication at the end that Hugo had cheated on Millie with Rosie? OMG if so.
I will catch up tonight though and I hope thats not true. I don't like Rosie's face.
WELL. If I'd known THIS on Saturday... :D
I haven't seen any of this series.
do you ever sometimes just feel a little bit ashamed of yourself?
I'm having to be a grownup about a whole bunch of stuff this week and I don't like it at all. DiS is my one remaining outlet to be a dick, don't take this away from me...
deary me. I however are young and carefree. I don't have to be an adult for another couple of months....then shit gets real.
I need to start a campaigne to get me a job.
I... I take it we're back on the espresso, then?
I was just about to say I didn't have one all weekend. And then I remembered I had a double shot. :D
I'm going to fire up the pot now.
how is YOUR no coffee going...hmmmm???
I'm back up to my usual ridiculous level of consumption. Tragically, this experiment has proved that a) drinking this much does massively improve my mood, but b) that it also makes my heart feel permanently on the verge of exploding. That's... actually pretty bad, isn't it?
So your heart explodes a little *shrug*
But what am I going to do to make myself feel better than other people now?
*Googles "importance of organic produce"*
You MUST have picked up numerous tips from me.
I like that place.
It was pretty expensive though. They didn't have mixers so you had to buy a shot of JD and then a bottle of diet coke for like £3.20 or something.
It's a great summer spot out on deck though. I took an Australian girl there on a date and she was rather impressed (read as easily pleased...)
It's like a fairly pikey place hat just happens to be on a boat. And have incredible views. It's always good to watch the comics get slightly spun out by the motion at the shows there.
Was also the basis of my most successful valntine's day ever. (girl I was with had fairly rustic tastes, thankfully).
The 'revelation' halfway down, below the second picture...
The world has gone mad.
might go and watch Melancholia but I kinda want to go and watch Drive again. Hmmmm.
Not much planned apart from that, got the last two Dr Who episodes to watch and the new Los Camp album to listen to. I'm also going to try and find stuff to sell on ebay. fun day.
I'm looking forward to it so much.
I wondered if it would sound sarcastic. It wasn't meant to. Fucking internet.
It's not out for six weeks! You reviewing bastards don't know you're born.
Just kidding with ya. I've only had my site for a year and a bit so getting promos sent through, especially when it's something like LC!, still turns me into a excitable little child trust me.
Nothing quite like wandering into a gig past the queuing plebs because you're on the list.
Currently sat in bed listening to Big Talk.
so what am I doing? wasting time on the internet with you belms. Jesus.
than all of yesterday and I'm very unhappy about this.
When to BMF last night and ran my little (not so little) hiney off.
Otherwise, this weather is causing my poor face skin to freak out so not feeling so great with that. Oh to be a girl.
bozos, be warned.
Turns out I'm going to Basingstoke next week. Not sure how I feel about this development.
If anyone fancies it give me a shout. Thanks bye.
the ending is really creepy innit. In a pervy way I mean.
Now I'm going to eat some potato croquettes and then listen to los camp.
Pure. Unadulterated. Toilet.
I forgot to mention how god-awfully awful the film itself is. jfc. one of the worst ever.
but I hate those talk things, I just wanted to perv at him a bit so instead I'm going to the pub for a bit then watching films with a pal
I bloody love the buildings round here.
Lots of cool stuff to write about that place, going to make a start now before you come over.
Also, I'm allowed in that building I was telling you about :D I need to ring the guy but if I can take people in with me then you're coming, also taking gowman and his bro if I'm allowed several and then his brother can get some cool photos. Wooo!
in replying to my email. An email which has my full name in it.
I hate people.
I started writing Steve but then decided to revert to the more formal Stephen, but ended up doing neither and instead sending an email from Steven. Worst thing is my email signature with my correctly spelled name is directly underneath it.
Fuck off, Tuesday.
