Please be sure to reply in the right place.
Had seven pints of London Pride and half a bottle of red last night, so feel a touch fragile.
Morning, on the metro listening to Tears For Fears. Morning!
was nice to listen to my ipod at my desk whilst nobody was in, though.
was my last fm scrobble figures
and I do want so I do.
benefits of having your own office.
Vacuum cleaners are classed as electrical appliances, tyvm.
have four hours of classes today but they're mostly drawing classes so not entirely essential. pretty much all I feel capable of doing is staying in bed and watching Maison Ikkoku, an anime sitcom from the early 1990s about romantic misunderstandings and TROO L0VE.
I'm excited about going to a home brewing 'course' tomorrow run by a real brewer :)
I think it's going to involve drinking beer as much about learning about the brewing process.
Really hope today goes nice and quick
I like beer.
pretty sure we're becoming the team everyone hates (and suspects of cheating)
to always slip a girl a didge. Thank you, youve brightened my day :)
Then having friends up from home for a party tomorrow. It will be fun and messy as we haven't all been together for a long time. I already bought a bloody mary mix for my hangover, as apparently that's the best cure...
Going to try and not spend too much money as I realised I have a gig every night next week. Jesus.
do you have the correct authorisation?
(sounds a lot ruder than Freyja's Day)
So bloody excited
Need to crack on with a geology (uuurrrghhh) essay this morning/early afternoon.
Cricket training this afternoon.
Need to go and get some new jeans so will probably have to do battle with the Bullring on Saturday.
Pub in the evening perhaps
Football on Sunday. Wolves v Wigan on SUPER Sunday for some bizarre reason.
um... relaxing weekend. might finally buy that jacket i have been wanting for ages. probably get a haircut.
i really need to stop sweating - the people in the office that complained about it being cold have annoyed me. why didn't they just put a jumper on? now i have to take mine off.
Quite good band though, they sounded like the soundtrack to the moment in an American teen film where the main characters are at a party but then they step outside for a meaningful conversation while the revellers carry on around them. The support were amazing, some band called Pearl and the Beard. I felt very with it.
Not a fan of this rain, about to go out on some jobs and will get soaked. Tomorrow I'm going to drive round some country churches then maybe see some fireworks in the evening.
i'd reccomend it to anyone going to gigs a lot.
I don't go to gigs often but when it has such a obvious effect the next day, it's clearly not good for my lugholes.
and doesn't fuck your ears up when you get home/the next day/later in your life. I wish I would have started wearing them a long time ago because now my right ear crackles and hurts when I go to gigs or if someone shouts in my ear and then during the day it'll just pop and i'll go deaf for half an hour or so.
Try these http://www.amazon.co.uk/ACS-ER20-Musician-Earplugs/dp/B000UJ8RHE
pretty much have to wear them now because of the whole going deaf thing. :/
mogwai gave me a pair :D
It's kind of piano-led preppy pop rock. Really good stuff. Apparently they've just been supporting James Blunt on tour, which they seemed fairly abashed about. I liked this one:
Check out Pearl and the Beard though, they were excellent.
Will investigate further. CHEERS.
this week has been long.
I've been up since 6, cycled in the rain, went to the gym, pumped fucking hard, cycled to work in the rain, had some porridge, now i'm getting excited about the weekend where I currently have zero plans. NO PLANS AT ALL. This is fucking amazing.
meaning i can get a zone 1-2 pass instead of a zone 1-3...i was orignially using zone 1-5.
in my haste to post this before anyone else did
Tomorrow probably massively go to the pub. Maybe some fireworks. Maybe some dancing.
Tamara Eccleston is on The Wright Stuff, it's embarrassing to watch.
What did you actually want from 'H news'?
Someone just called Ann Diamond highfalutin!
Always wondering how far he'll take it...
He used to be in my local all the time, I was too scared to talk to him.
massively wearing too small a pair trousers of trousers.
But rather than paying attention, I'm arguing about (different) IP rights on the Music board.
Great use of time.
Turns out it was actually "Lord Chamberlain". Thank fuck for that.
found out the field are playing with walls at the deaf institute in a few week. woo.
But you're going to your folks and will therefore see your pug dugs.
Cheer up or I'm going to start making lawyer jokes and REALLY upset you.
Tell them to fuck off, flip the table, smash their back doors in then set the building on fire.
ORRRR, burst into tears and give them a sob story about a family crisis type thing and you wanted this week to spend special crisis time with them. I'd probably use a family member of tertiary importance for this.
Or you can quietly shit in someone's desk when they've gone to lunch.
I've totally had enough. I feel like I'll have a nervous breakdown if I stay here any longer anyway. What shall I say?
At the moment, going into the boardroom and screaming SMELL YER MAW and then walking out is looking favourable.
I am on day 3 of no fags also. Great timing.
so, let's look at this another way.
Perhaps, and only perhaps, you'd be able to deal with this under normal circumstances, those circumstances including cigarettes and alcohol, but bearing in mind that (evidenced from previous attempts at quitting stuff on these here boards) you have a wobbly time coming off of nicotine, you may just be having a slightly exagerated emotional response to the situation.
FAR BE IT FROM ME TO SAY SUCH THINGS, but I'd probably wait until you get confirmation that your holidays been fucko'd and whether or not some form of recompense or reorganised dates appear or are mentioned.
You're a bit bored there by the tone of some of your posts, and this is just giving you an excuse to punch it in the cunt, shake things up and let yourself out of the comfy box you've got yourself.
STOP! WAIT UNTIL MONDAY! THEN QUIT! Never quit on a Friday, use the underlying tension for getting absolutely shitfaced, then do it on a hangover/comedown, that way tears will flow more easily if they're needed.
I've spoken to my boss (you is pissed on a golf course in dubai. Caaaant) and said that I am willing to log on twice a day on holiday and give any urgent advice or directions, but that I own't be cancelling my holiday or coming into the office execpt in an actual dire emergency. He ought to be capable of taking the bulk of this off me (it's a dela I only got involved in so that he could go to bloody dubai for a week anyway with "work"). You are right. I am going to jobhunt when I'm feeling calmer and made decisions with a clean head. I am going to go and eat some fudge now. HERE WE GO. thanks mate, you're great :)
Yes. I totally agree with this. Especially the fudge eating.
I'm not going to lie, it kind of made everything all right again.
how is your not smnoking working out? I have been good but i am so hungry ALL THE TIME. yesterday I had to buy two tescos lunch deals and I was still hungry.
I might have to give up giving up before I kill someone. AND I painted my nails before I had a bath. Now I have chipped nailvarnish. WHY MEEEE?
tonight - pub
tomorrow - long walk, house party, fireworks, hot spiced cider
sunday - aiming to be working in the library most of the day
Next week I'm seeing 4 gigs (LC!, Bon Iver, Antlers, Yuck). Like London buses, or something.
If you have a letter of redundancy, after being on PAYE but then the company still want you as a freelance journalist, does this not mean that I have not been made redundant if I am still in the same job role?
DOES THIS MAKE SENSE!
You have lost your terms and conditionsd of employment and teh rights and protections that come with that. your arrangement as a freelancer will be a separate arrangement with different terms and you will probably not have a contract of empoyment with them. In fact, whatever written agreement you enter into will most likely expressly state that the relationship formed as a result of any freelance work is NOt one of employer/employee.
I WILL BRING YOU PUGS AND COFFEE EVERY DAY!
apparently the guy who's dumped me TWICE this autumn is dj'ing at the place i have been planning for WEEKS to be going. i'm thrilled.
ok, on topic: tonight i will be drinking a lot of cava whilst listening to best coast and razika and talk about how much of an idiot the aforementioned guy is. then i'm going to go out and drink a lot of beer and dance a lot and hopefully make out with someone who isn't him. preferably right in front of him.
