Good weekends, everyone?
I'm sore from digging up lots of sand from in one part of the back yard and wheelbarrowing it another part and then levelling both areas off.
Today, at work I *will* finish what I finish.
Today, at work, I *have* finished what I finished.
are you still sore?
Will probably feel it more tomorrow. For some reason it always takes an extra day for the ache to really kick in.
I booked flights to Vietnam in February so now have something to look forward to then went to a halloween party on Saturday night, dressed as Donnie Darko (don't think anyone got it) got really drunk and spent yesterday hungover on my sofa watching 30 rock
i got engaged. so, pretty spectacular.
So was the expensive thing you bought last week a ring after all? Knew it!
(Though I think some people here had predicted that pretty accurately...)
You should now apply to go on Don't Tell the Bride.
Trust me, you should.
fucking quality car crash tv
but that means you lied to us about the ring. You clod.
i genuinely did go and see a man about a mortage. and he genuinely made me feel like a pillock. :(
So how did you pop the question?
My geology lecture isn't on this morning which has left me with a 6-day, boring weekend. An alternative viewpoint is that I'm paying a fair old amount of money for 2 hours worth of 'learning' this week.
Am going to go and make a start on the cartography for my dissertation shortly.
Weekend wasn't too bad, if a little cold and windy at times. I'm still sporting a large egg on my shin from cricket yesterday, the bruising has gone to more of a blackish colour now though.
Had a weekend of relaxation, curry, baking and nice time with boyfriend.
Today I am being made to wear devil horns so I'm in a really really bad mood and not talking to anyone.
I'm pissed off about it. Its like the busyest day of the month and I have to sit here with fucking horns on my head AND IF I DON'T, I get called boring.
great weekend. Went to cambridge, got bladdered with friends and had a wonderful time with the lady friend. Bliss.
However not seeing her til Saturday now which sucks fucking balls.
A weekend full of swings and roundabouts involving Chinese food (yum), We Need To Talk About Kevin (excellent), £20 scratch card win (fucking yessssssss), a stressful move (upsetting), car-clamping (RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR anger), and other stuff.
Had a nice food and footy filled weekend in London. Had a nasty collision in football with knee to groin and twisted arm. Now the action of using a mouse is really making my upper arm hurt and I can feel bone moving around in there, f^^^ing hurts :(
watched Ides of March yesterday as well
Haven't been to the flicks for a while now.
and is good as you can relate to Gosling a lot as the idealist going bad (not a spoiler btw). He plays the dead-eyed dude quite well.
Clooney as the Governor is absolutely fantastic though, imo.
I managed to rouse myself and dose up with paracetamol and go to see the John Landis Q+A and screening of The Thing last night though, which was ace.
Work today is PRESSURE though. Lot of responsibility. As a consequence, I will be hiding on DiS.
Similar to one I suggested you take CC on ages ago.
I think she's been lurking on here for years and knows everything about you; eventually she will kill, fuck and eat you. But hey at least you'll get laid.
(Smackdown comes this evening, then, presumably).
Great weekend. Friend up from Manchestah. Drinks on Friday night. Flouncing around town on Saturday. Dancing on Sat night, followed by some astoundingly great chips and curry sauce. Out for a lazy boozy brunch on Sun. Grand prix. Then out to see The Rapture (who were fucking excellent). Coast through work today (hopefully). Gym tonight. Then Uni C/Only Connect/Origins of Us/Buzzcocks. THEN BED!
yeh, it was alright.
her ladyship was discharged from hospital Saturday evening (she's got pneumonia now) after being admitted on Thursday (she'd gone into work for the first time in about a month, and lasted a couple of hours.) So have mostly been taking care of her, and playing the FM2012 demo. And being amazed by how utterly delicious brewdog's Punk IPA is.
that's all that matters
went to crawley v accrington stanley saturday, classic british hoofing
lots of dressed up chumps in camden saturday night, damn halloween
happy fucking days.
....keep us posted, we're rooting for you
I was going to come to your gig on Friday, but the guy who I was going to drag along decided to get really drunk really quickly, so I had to take him home and deposit him with his horrified girlfriend. How did it go?
It'll make you feel better I promise
Company has gone in to administration.
If it helps I got made redundant twice last year (from the same job) and it turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to me career wise
hope you're ok
it was alright.
got the last of the apples down from our tree yesterday
thought you were in CZEcH RePUbliC!!!
this weekend I found out I'm possessed.
I love any excuse to be dramatic. You'd never know.
Talked a lot of crap on tinychat last night. I'm a little concerned about this turn of events.
Lots of lounging around watching stuff and played football.
Tim Key and Tom Basden show tonight, should be ace
the family area of a wetherspoons pub on the friday of half term: pretty rough.
I need a new job. Now.
because they did this on Friday
that's a primary school level of error
I'm having to trace an outline of the UK.
I keep going to draw from Plymouth around Cornwall, the new line replaces Southampton through to Plymouth... Fucking thing.
The Suffolk/Essex border through to the Isle of Sheppey was a right cunt to draw, I'm not looking forward to North West Scotland :/
As North Norfolk is my study area...
next year i might be walking from hunstanton to cromer over the course on a long weekend. lovely stretch.
Illustrator closed unexpectedly. Soz. lol.
Well... that was some of what I posted, at least.
I finished my map, drew borders, etc and then it refused to save, followed by a crash :/
And I was relying solely on that money while I try and break into the biz. Now I have to either a) get a full time job, rendering the 7 months of internship I've done this year completely redundant, b) live like a pauper or c) get another part time job that won't pay anywhere near as well as this one did or be anywhere near as fun. And still be treated like shit by the industry I've worked for free in, for 7 months.
(hope you get something sorted out)
Found out yesterday my last remaining grandparent died at 94. It's been coming for a while, but she died peacefully.
Halloween was quite good though, went to a house party full of foreign students with my ex drummer. Ended up having a really good time.
Lost my next-to-last one a couple of months ago at 89. At that age, I tend to think that if they're able to go peacefully and without remorse, there's not much else you can ask for. Still sad though.
Yeah, apparently family and friends visited her in the day, and she went that evening. She was in Malaysia though so I didn't see her that often, and I can't speak Cantonese.
my last one died peacefully a couple of weeks ago. At the funeral the preist referred to her as both Marge and Betty. Neither of which were her name, about 70:30 anger:mirth.
or maybe >:( if you were in the 70 bit rather than the 30 bit
