MORNING FELLOW COMRADES. WRAP UP WARM.
i just looked at my timetable and have no idea who or what i am meant to be teaching today. crap.
today: teaching (obvs), italian lesson (haven't learnt my vocab argh), private lesson, drinking tea, hopefully GOING OUT to an indie disco. bank holiday tomorrow too :D yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh tuesday
everyone keeps looking at my winter coat and asking me if i have a "real" winter coat. ...i am worried.
PLEASE TELL ME YOU ARE IN BRITAIN!
I just love the cold weather as I adore coats and wrapping up warm, yet to purchase a winter coat but I think I'm going to go with my Burberrry trenchcoat today (found it in a charity shop for 5 quid!).
What do you do teach?
i could reaaaaaaaaally do with austria staying in the eu right now plz
it's national austria day tomorrow :D and then we have two bank holidays next week too, yessssssss.
i teach english. it's a good job.
But I felt I didn't know the culture well enough, and just wasn't 100 percent about going. What do you need apart from a degree to teach in Austria?
well, i knew some german. that's it though.
Windy, with some parts of the UK expecting rain.
White cloud for most of the day, max 15 degrees today. Heavy rain expected tomorrow.
Windy weather is shitty. Proven fact that it drives people mental. Heavy rain is OK as long as it doesn't cause localised flooding. Drizzly shitty, doesn't know if it's raining or not rain is annoying.
Heavy rain all day in Perth, with max temperatures of 12 degrees.
The heavy rain was overnight but was finished by the time I got up this morning. Looking out the window the skies are cloudy and vaguely ominous. Grey clouds, though, not the whit fluffy clouds of Salzburg.
You must have got 12 back to front. Or it was a minimum.
THE BBC RE ALWAYS RIGHT!
I live in Perth Australia. The heavy rain misled me, I thought you were looking at the right Perth because, well, we did have some heavy rain.
Much like the star-nosed mole.
13 degrees and cloudy with a 60% chance of rain.
Doesn't sound much better than Perth, Scotland. 21 is probably a balmy sunny day in both those Perths.
That one 34 degree day out of the blue, then straight back to shitty cloudy cold weather.
Signed my boy up for some surf life saving type stuff for pre-schoolers back in August, started last Saturday. Had to get in the fucking water with him at 9:30 in the morning. He didn't mind but it was fucking freezing. Then of course he wanted to stay and have a swim after it had finished.
is someone actually from perth scotland then I don't understand this. ps perth4eva
I looked it up on Wikipedia and it has even lost it's city status. They're appealing to the queen to get it back for her diamond jubilee next year.
Under famous people from Perth Ontario there were a bunch of hockey players, but there were no mentions from Perth Scotland. Except some new wave band from the early 80. Fiction factory?
Feel like I'm playing Celebrity Head.
I'm Christopher Bowes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Bowes
You got many stable mates in the "Pirate Metal" genre?
I'm eating a chocolate croissant and listening to Idlewild. It's going to be really busy today and I also have to think about the logistics of sending cheese in the post. I'm also hoping to hear from my prospective date today.
why wouldn't you send cheese in the post?
Classic case of gilding the lily. All the buttery goodness of a croissant, you don't need chocolate on top of that. Cheese maybe, but not chocolate.
(It was free)
but the local Mexican restaurant is doing 2 Brew Dog beers and 2 burritos for a tenner so I'm going there for my tea.
I got paid today- I can order some Brew Dog!!
Went to Byron the other week and ordered a Punk IPA, and they brought me the wrong IPA. I was too polite to say anything :(
You should take a look at the Summerwine Brewery in Yorkshire too, they're doing some similar stuff and it's really good.
mate of mine knows the owners. hopefully before xmas, but likely to be spring.
It's a bit weird- I've got two laptops on and I'm in my living room but not facing the TV.
My email is taking AGES to update.
Going to have a day of Peel sessions.
I'll dig them out when i get home. Oh, except Hatful of hollow is on cassette and the only tape player I have left is in the 20 year old car and I tried it on the weekend and it didn;t work.
House-coat, rollers, fag hanging out the side of the mouth. About right?
I'm trying to post less, because work is kind of crazy and as of tomorrow I'm going to be doing the work of two people on my own for week, which is already making me a bit weepy. Also, I think I've been a bit of a dick on here and have got too comfortable talking about private stuff when all I ever wanted to do was make puns and flirt with Lucien. Considering a change of name to mark this transitional period. All good suggestions considered.
cracked on with Party Down Season 2 last night...i love Party Down!
Someone on twitter posted a Will Smith motivational video, i got drawn right in, that Will Smith makes things happen
clearly the season standout
I have one lecture scheduled this morning and wasn't going into the office afterwards. I can't be arsed, frankly, and had a very long day yesterday. Too much hassle to travel into That London for just that when I already have the slides. Rescheduled my lunch meeting thing and will now sit around scratching myself for the rest of the day.
despite my boyfriend getting ham and cheese kievs instead of the garlic ones I asked for (WHO DOES THAT?!) but he got me some absolutely amazing presents so I can't be mad at him forever. One of which was Real Estates new album and tickets to see them tonight.
Why? were brilliant.
are such a step down from the garlic, make me feel a bit ill
but I am a garlicaholic and I wanted my fix last night. I'm going to make something really really garlicy tonight.
all £15 worth.
wish there were more jobs locally :(
My 18.25 was delayed until 18.36. I've half a mind to write a scathing letter to First Capital Connect and my MP!
the trains have been exceptionally shit this autumn so far. they're normally alright.
Why? were EXCELLENT last night. I fucking love the Union Chapel.
Who wants to play Words With Friends or Word Feud with me? SAME USERNAME.
Did Why? play Song of the Sad Assassin last night?
They didn't :(
The new stuff sounded great though.
I saw them on Sunday and the new stuff did indeed sound brilliant. Back on form.
Union Chapel is probably my favourite gig venue in the country. (and therefore the world, having never been to a gig outside of the UK)
Wikipedia says Why? (stylized WHY?) is an American Alternative Hip hop and indie rock band. That's kind of a lazy description though. Give Alopecia a listen on Spotify.
that album is 100% fantastic.
It sounds like there were loads of people there, but I only saw joeymahone, meowington and CG when I was handing out flyers afterwards.
Everyone else must have snuck out of the side entrance.
I did sneak out of a side entrance quite late as I was a bit shocked at how early it ended. I was in bed before midnight, pretty good going considering I live in Reading.
My cough/cold is getting worse.
In a seated concert hall. At a Wilco gig.
was having a laugh with someone on Friday night about getting their cold and I'd curse their name if i did.
FUCK YOU BILL YOU PRICK YOU SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN THE HOUSE TIL YOU WERE 100% BETTER.
but not really, bill's sound.
I'm going to spend today eating, watching kung fu films and emptying the contents of my sinuses and lungs of ming.
Went to Giraffe last night for a nice but kind of awkward meal with some friends, one of whom is going to a funeral today which someone else at the meal insisted on asking him about repeatedly until he looked like he was about to cry. That was odd.
New guy at work today is taller than me (and I'm pretty fucking tall) and I'm not sure what I think about that. Tuesday looks set to be a day of confusion.
I can't eat it without chocolate on top :(
Its really nice though with some chocolate chips on but yesterday I only had a bar of dairy milk to chop up on top of it.
Real Estate tonight
Seriously, it piled up out of the water like a cow pat and almost touched my arse.
Funnily enough, I had just changed my two month old's nappy and it was really, really full as well. But he didn't do one all day yesterday.
It's been a big pooh day.
As in Guess who's coming to dinner?
should be awful.
But I've just been barred from borrowing because my fines have hit the $10 mark. 25 cents per day per item racks up quicker than you think.
I like it.
Rocking out tonight, woo.
Quick poll of the DiS hive mind for a friend: If you'd been going out with someone for four months, and they refused to add you to their facebook because they "mainly used it for work", would you break their legs?
But they are obviously embarrased by the relationship. Doesn't bode well for the future
no one uses facebook for work
do you mean change their relationship status to In a relationship with ... or do you just mean add as a friend?
Either way I'd probably just break their legs
sage advice Smyth2.
because if there's one person outside work you'd add, you'd think it'd be your gf/bf
who is on their Facebook.
I'm confused though, I thought you and h_y_g were FB friends?
I think he has me on limited profile. I think I drove him away with sexyteachergate, and he might be seeing other people =(
I suppose the whole thing could get awkward very quickly.
a dreadful idea.
they've obvs got some reason to keep you secret - either they're seeing someone else or they're secretly devoutly religious and you're about to get them excommunicated.
I'd like to emphasise that this is genuinely for a friend. If it was me I'd have thrown an epic hissy fit long ago (several people can probably attest to this)
It's pretty much impossible to stop non-work people from sending requests etc.
but that's me, a maverick, a guy who doesn't play by the rules, a man who operates outside of the system and most importantly a man who doesn't use facebook.
Mainly because they use Facebook for work- which automatically makes them a belmo.
instead i am in work.
here we go.
Work is busy atm. Ho hum.
Can I put off meeting someone that I have been putting off for about a month?
I had something else to say.
Make yourself useful, contribute to my brilliant subthread above please.
but I have way too much work.
I haven't yet recovered from the weekend. :(
On a happy note, I am really loving this Autumn weather.
I just listened to your voicemail :D :D :D
SORREEEEE! Are you coming on Thursday?
Thursday I have an awards evening for Netball :( But it will be over by 10. I have to go as I am getting a silly trophy.
Sorry I was cooking and listening to my Mother tell REALLY interesting stories about work people that I don't even know.
A SILLY TROPHY? No such thing. Make sure you show us all, yeah? :D
Very excited about Saturday :D
Haha maybe I will attach the trophy to my outfit?
I'm so not at all organised in life at the moment.
I wanted to make one. This is not going to happen.
So so poor
Went out last night and drank too much, threw up in some cups, don't remember getting home. This morning I was almost two hours late for work and because someone else hasn't turned up yet I got a massive bollocking off the one guy who is here. I don't even work on Tuesdays normally I just want to go back to bed :'(
I had some mental hallucinations last night, after a run of nice dreams lately, so pretty tired. Got a drum lesson tonight.
this is the interview, then I'll come to yours and you can have your interview, and then I will choose my favourite.
