It doesn't seem to have abated in any way.
I have to go out in it shortly.
It was such a nice day yesterday, I assumed I was dreaming. Woke back up at 7am. I wasn't. Worst walk to work I can remember since the snowy deathtrap last year.
it's amazingly windy, it's whistling so loudly through the windows that I can't really hear anyone else in the office.
might go home and lie on the couch and play Red Dead Redemption later.
i hear you.
feeling really low myself today. seriously.
Also, I can pester you long enough until you give me a job ;)
so you can always come round for a game?
Sorry I meant to reply to this in your email :( (my head isn't working today) When does he go?
Can we go to some kind of class next week please?
Train heated to sauna level.
The restaurant/bar opposite my flat was playing bass heavy dance music until 1am - It happens sometimes at a weekend which is fair enough, but today's not a bank holiday or anything so don't know why they were allowed last night. Heard screaming at one point two, got up and two guys were staring each down, yelling, thought it was going to kick off. Was on the verge of calling the police when one stormed off.
I think the wind makes people angry.
Let's start the year as we mean to go on.
gonna play GTA and listen to records for like four hours, then maybe get dressed
this semester I have 9:15s four days a week :(
I estimate I got about 3 hours sleep last night. Today will be interesting.
Good holiday, y'all?
It almost landed on my cat who is on the verge of death anyway. My neighbour left their gate open so it was squeeking all night. They also left their wind chimes up.
My travel card £53.40 instead of £50.40.
There is no work to do yet.
It was a coach for most of the way. Urgh... and now we'll pay more for the privilege. The franchise is changing, but I can't expect it to effect much.
We were coming back from Bournemouth and the year before they had to get a bus to Southampton then a bus somewhere else then a train which sounded awful so I just drove the 3 hours or whatever. Then got back to Dalston and couldn't park so had to drive back to Essex. It was long.
I hope the new franchisee sacks the cunt who works on the Liverpool Street help desk who told me it was none of his concern that I'd been left stranded in London as a result of their train getting stuck on my way back from Norfolk.
We have two fence panels missing.
Might even get the two weeks worth of stuff I didnt bother doing around Christmas. Really felt good since Sunday. Optimistic and content. Might just be playing Skyrim too much. Also drinking alot of white russians so could be that
its gonna be tough but worth it in the end.
WHY THE FUCK WOULD I NEED TO BE AWAKE AT 7?
so now i'm having that dilemma that you get when you've had way too little sleep – try to stay awake through the day and get a good, full night's sleep the following night, or give in and have a nap?
i've made some tea and toast now at least and gonna watch some House in bed, and take it from there (that's probably what i'll end up spending all day doing tbf)
drove 90minutes to lancaster, told it was too windy to work, drove 90minutes home, someone texts me saying that they've reopened the site. i'm gonna eat crisps and watch tv all day.
Clean windows on skyscrapers. (The towering skyscrapers of Lancaster).
in work at 7.30
Feeling a bit low about life today; which is a shame as my New Year's resolution was to be more positive and enthusiastic.
Study leave. Exams in TWO FUCKING DAYS time. Hold me.
Had an emergency doctor's appointment at 11 o'clock last night. Turns out I'm not going blind, but I do have to go see another GP this morning to make extra sure. Make as many wanking jokes out of that as you please.
but as I worked most of the holidays this is my one chance to gloat. so shut it the lot of ya.
but 4 books to read in that time. not happening.
I did plan to leave, but inevitably get drawn back by a funny lucien thread or some such. My life. Anyway, I'm a lot calmer/happier now since you didn't ask, so there should be less mindless ranting. I have made a resolution to think through every post before posting it.
PS Lucien's dead. Or disappeared. Or something. I haven't seen him for a while, anyway.
It was great, thanks! I found getting to know new people much easier than I expected, and the work was pretty interesting. However, this term is Medieval stuff and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is doing my head in. On the upside I have recently discovered Jacques Derrida, so on balance all good. My only concern is doing too much really. Might cut down.
I found Medieval tough, I neglected the translations in favour of just doing Arthurian stuff. Don't do that.
I got the Simon Armitage translation of Gawain for Christmas and it's GREAT. Definitely shed some light on the situation.
In other news fines can fuck off
Hated that, however short it was
Chelsea fan; mindless ranting; at university; likes Captain Beefheart and Lucien threads.
Surely no one like that exists?
No easily look outable window but a 2nd partition so it's a bit more cosy and enclosed. Surreptitious internet activities will be more difficult though :(
Bloody soaked through. My jeans have done a Ross.
feeling fresh. had a couple of days rest and recovery time.
going back to bed to watch fluffy films
Not to mention the lack of sleep due to the hurricane outside all through the night! Otherwise, back to work. It's all pretty quiet this morning. We shall see.
I hope you all had absolutely spectacular Christmases and NYEs! I have £30 to my name for a fortnight after it all and it's my birthday on Friday. Grim. Got a tax rebate cheque which desperately needs paying in now.
because of the heavy wind. I just wanna go home :( My flight is delayed and several others has been cancelled...
its VERY COLD in the office
not a happy bunny
Glad I'm not in work, because I'm not handling it that well. 2012 can fuck right off.
Sorry to hear that, Steve.
I got a house rabbit and I'm so attached to him. At least your guinea pig had a good life I suspect.
Thinking about shelling out on an expensive pair of waterproof trousers, that way it'll never rain again.
Working til 8 tonight, thankfully should have Cowboys & Aliens from Lovefilm waiting for me so at least I'll get my Olivia Wilde fix.
I bought some cool mittens a couple of weeks ago and it hasn't been cold since.
When it comes to heavy nights etc...but I'm STILL feeling pretty bad after NYE/all day drinking NY Day.
Apparently the liver association charity thingy say's that it can actually be bad to stop drinking altogether for a month because it traps the liver in to a false sense of security.
Still, something I vow to do. I've never been off booze for more than a week and I'm going to have a shot at it.
A hot brandy would work wonders on my flu right now...
yes, i feel really low.
Two day week starts tomorrow.
Might east some cheese and watch The Godfather in a bit.
Can't complain really.
Might also have some chutney. And some red wine cherries. Not long since I had the beans, fried onions and sosage on toast though, so I need to let that settle first.
or maybe because of the lack of a smoke today.
Either way, pity me.
