Drink sounds good.
But had a shitload of work come in which is clearly gonna keep me here til New Years.
Christmas can fuck off this year, i'm not in the mood
Girlfriend's parents arrived to stay for Christmas last night (at 1.30, only a good 5 hours late) and it's already turning into Stressmas.
Not helped by one of my soon-to-be neighbours insist they move their car from his allocated parking space. Normally a fair enough request, but he hasn't moved in yet. He won't be moving in until the new year. He will not be inconvenienced in any way by our visitors using that spot for a few days, but is insisting on it not being used.
Might take a shit through his letterbox.
I could deal with the stress normally but I've got professional exams starting on the 5th that I'm woefully unprepared for and I need. to. study.
OH WOE IS ME!
Also, I like your Eve²-ness
then I'll attempt to pack for 10 days of travelling around and tidy the flat before I leave. I'm going to forget something/leave something on and burn the place down.
All the people who can do their jobs without shitting their pants every ten minutes are on holiday or havn't turned up yet.
This means I actually have to do work on a day which traditionally is a skive day. If I have to work here until actual finish time I will likely go upstairs and push someone's stupid face into their multiple screen setup.
the crap out of the Trafford Centre. Then the pub tonight with housemates and GF.
Been to the butcher's and collected my Christmas meat this morning
Finish work at 11 then going to make truffles this afternoon, thinking chocolate, mint and cointreau but may do some brandy too.
Made a frozen Baileys cheescake last night too.
I have a birthday party for a four year old just after Christmas
I am in work. I will be here until later than a normal working day as we're busy.
Secret santa at lunch. I went £5 over budget and got my colleague some sexy spider body jewels for her vajayjay and nipples.
Tonight boyfriend and I are going out for CHEESE FONDUE with a few couple friends. It should be lovely IF I can get out of work before 7:30pm. CHEESECHEESECHEESECHEESE! Excited for it now as I'm starving.
Tomorrow is our Christmas day so I'm making scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and croissants and then its the big exchange.
A digital photo frame keyring.
I appreciate that I'm new and hence wouldn't be the easiest person to buy for, but who the FUCK would ever want that?
We agreed on joke presents. I know my manager next to me has bought someone a dildo as the guy wearing uggs in the office the other day looked in her drawer and shouted it out.
The VP came up to him and mocked him and took a picture to send to his wife. It was a funny day.
Regardless of its intended use.
that sounds alright
It's too big to be a reasonable keyring and too small to be a reasonable photo frame.
And it blatantly came out of a "SECRET SANTA GIFTS FOR £10 OR LESS!" section of something.
I sound like I massively care about what a stranger got me out of the goodness of their own heart/non-optional quasi-social obligation. I don't. I just thought it was the shittest gift ever.
i think you were short changed.
my dad now has 7 (seven) xmas presents.
finish at 12.
having lunch with a friend, wandering around a bit, doing some Christmas shopping, having food/drinks with some other friends, going to see the Wave Pictures in Hackney.
gonna be MEGA.
Works balls, had an exchange on email that went like this:
"Im covering for Craig, I dont know if theyve done it wrong, Ill sort it though"
"They have got it wrong, can you make sure its sorted please"
"Yeah, as I say, I dont know if its wrong Im looking now though"
"Ok, it is wrong because craig told us it would be done this way"
"Thats fine, as I say, I have no idea as Im covering but Im doing it now, it will be doen as requested one way or the other"
"I dont like how its been done wrong though, can you make sure its done?"
"U FUCKING SRS BRAH?!?!"
It was done right blurgh
Craigs a made up name. His actual name is John
if you catch my drift.
out tonight, Joshua?
What you up to?
i haven't been up to canning circus recently, so maybe we could head up there. me, nick and matt are out, plus my mate stef who you haven't met. my mate dan does the door at rock city, so thats an option for the lols.
Ping a text wherever you are, I'll be about from 2 or something. I'll probably be in the social later, ill go to rock city if I fancy banging a 40 year old divorcee though!
im out with workmates 1-3, maybe i'll meet you for one after
that I'm more excited about not having work tomorrow than I am about actual Christmas. Lie in! This has felt like the longest week ever.
had to come in today as i've been off tue-thur vomitting my guts up and now have so many letters to write!
i was too ill to even use the time off to play Skyrim, very upsetting
..spider body jewels
For that reason I will be mostly posting this link today.
Meet some friends, have some drinks and a peruse around, then gonna go see the Wave Pictures Christmas extravaganza.
I hope I don't miss the last train home and end up sleeping in Kings Cross McDonalds again.
Say what you like about the Daily Mail, but it does do a good cute animal/pun story.
I'm sitting at my desk but feeling woeful. I'm no good for anything work-wise.
I don't know a single other lawyer who still has anything to do.
But I did up until last night. I'm really just showing face today. And it's not a pretty face, I tell you.
throwing mistletoe to the mercy of The Markets.
not deleting spam.
not sharing things on social networks.
not eating Roses for breakfast.
not worrying how horny some of the threads on the boards are.
not replying to emails.
not posting this message.
work can fuck off
For your scarf based compliments, you are my new favourite Diser. Hope it didn't get too messy after I left.
You too mate. Was lots of fun and should be repeated more often. Also - I want your scarf, did I mention that?
It was good, I didn't stay very late as I had work, but everyone seemed to have a good time.
How was your work thing?
Didn't get to bed till after 5am, though.
1x Red sweater
1x Man Utd cufflink
1x Fishing tool kit
1x box of thorntons chocolates
1x Torch (nicked from work)
1x pair of driving gloves (nicked from work)
1x bottle of de-icer (nicked from work
what happened to the other? or is he a war vet?
Have bought the album and will be rinsing it Christmas Day.
then I;m going to the co-op to give the guys that work there some chocolate truffles and biscuits that I made, then I might go dancing later.
i haven't even bought any booze yet.
turns out that NO ONE went for rude presents other than me. Fantastic.
MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS.
coz I am now free from work for two whole weeks, yipppeeee! Heading to the pub now, this last few weeks has just been one long hangover. A pint of strongbow should kick things of nicely. Merry Christmas!
Still waiting for a couple of my colleague friend people to finish off what they are doing so we can bust a gut. Arghhhhh get me out of here, my pint is getting flat and warm.
Pretty much the worst/busiest place I've ever been to.
Got 2 x ducks that I'm gonna roast tomorrow, BIG TIME.
take festive pictures with them
take each frozen duck into a quiet room and tell it your most well kept personal secrets
roast it at gas mark 7 for 2 and a half hours until crispy
lost all of my money and my bankcard at the weekend in sheffield and am waiting on money to come through, hopefully it'll be transferred before the shops close else otherwise no one is getting any presents from me this christmas. The one present I did buy in advance hasn't arrived yet, which is incredibly frustrating.
No one is going to mind really but I will because I like giving family and friends christmas presents. ARGH!
Got up at midday, watched telly for a few hours, had my usual 3pm two pints, watched more telly.
Tomorrow - will generally be doing nothing. Have allocated a two-hour window to go to town, find and buy all presents, get back and wrap them (or might just take them to a wrapping shop and pay someone else to do it to save hassle). Then i'll probably just watch more telly and drink until i fall asleep.
