i'm eating hobnobs for breakfast. it's come to this.
just woke up and played a bit of beethoven as I'm teaching myself so needed to make sure I remembered. Eating bran flakes now. Gym in an hour or so.
Lots of dissertation work to do today.
Or are you learning to listen to it in the mornings?
I drove to Ealing common last night at 2200 to pick up a keyboard i won on ebay. I got back, bearing in mind I've not played in years, whipped up a youtube of moonlight sonata and I've almost nailed the first half of the score. I'm speechless
first time in about 3 years i think. maybe longer
but they were usually because of some way work had fucked me off. the last time was when they'd denied my request for voluntary redundancy, i went music shopping and then to the cinema. was great.
Refreshing DiS all day? Could have gone in to work to do that.
it's not a lot for people who do it all the time but it is for me
Our team won the pub quiz last night. £22 each, not bad. I did, however, drink about 6 pints, christ knows why I'm feeling amazing this morning. I have zero hangover. Bizarre.
I listened to Richard D James's Analord stuff on the way to work. It's amazing. Why the hell have I not listened before, hey?
Even little things like being able to buy nuts and getting the bus when its drizzling was awesome, I wish Id made the most of it. I want to cry
on what counting practises they are using
really, the lengths you're going to for this MEAT! I hope you're also having your brazilian touched up?
Turns out she's a partner at work who's been off on secondment since I started.
Fuck off Tuesday.
what do you mean by mildly rude?
Could've been worse. But seeing recognition dawn in her eyes in the office was a bit scrotum-shriveling.
i tutted at some asian guy who practically ran in front of me to get a cab first on friday night, he got really scared for some reason and apologised, all 5ft8 of me must look terrifying...turned out we lived near each other...ended up sharing a cab
if she's being pushy you have a right
no wonder she's a partner
She might even think youre really confident and authoratative and promote/sleep with you.
We ran out of digestives. They were quite dry but still enjoyable.
Tonight I have the January W.I. meeting. We're playing bingo. I can't wait.
I have nothing else to contribute today
for lunch and have just eaten what I'm sure was a stale biscuit. Tuesdays can go fuck themselves.
5.5 mile run last night then nout much else, watched Coppers, love that show
listening to people talk about "dangerous dogs" on five live, its getting feisty. I would like to go to the cinema today but I'm poor. Might trade some cd's to get some dough.
Chocolate hobnobs are incredible.
have we all seen this on facebook yet?
?1. Stare at the red dot on the girl’s nose for 30 seconds
2. Turn your eyes towards the wall/roof or somewhere else on a plain surface
3. Keep blinking your eyes quickly!
4. What can you see?
Nothing else happened
I've done it like 9 times now, it's well good.
I tried it last night but I was really tired so I couldn't even look at the computer screen for long enough.
SORRY TO LET YOU DOWN
It seemed to go really well - thanks to CG helping us out with a laptop.
Need to find my tenancy agreement tonight as I'm giving my notice to my landlord this week. Might catch up on Borgen too.
Awful sleep last night...it seems that when I prefer for a good night's sleep the pressure is there to have one. I had clean sheets, clean pjs, insense and some candles on the go, and then I spent my time concentrating so much on having a good night's sleep that I didn't sleep more than 3 hours.
not the insense or candles bit though
or what colour load of washing i did when i got in?
i also did a dark load.
pretty shit start to the day. Soaked on way into work despite wearing waterproofs (had the foresight to bring in a change of clothes though.) Then was trying to unload some crates, got it completely wrong and now have a 4/5 inch graze on my left forearm. Which is throbbing like a bitch, and will bruise like a peach, no doubt.
a russell brand/howard devoto/steve severin kind of thing.
Am I a celebrity now?
Was it MEGALOLZ or SRSBSNS?
Ooh 50+ now. ~~~ FAMOUS ~~~
but I bet it's amazing
"On the metro this lad started playing The Smiths on his phone, staring at this 'indie' looking girl. She shook her head. It was majestic."
It's funny for me cos I was there. I don't understand.
Maybe, I might not. This must be exciting for you
I'm going to close the curtains and swear at everyone in the street when I have to leave the house.
i hate that 50+ thing. I WANNA KNOW EXACTLY
note to self: try not to get married again for a bit.
Had an *intersting* night last night.
We've picked our new puppy. she's the spitting image of the dog we lost last week. We were torn between it being too much like a 'replacement' and thinking, why the hell not, we loved that little dog so much. let's keep her memory alive with a lookylike. pics to follow. And name help, please!
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???????? I'M GOING TO SEE A PUPPY??????!!!!!!
you've just picked it out, not picked it up.
DAMN. I was hoping I would get to play with a puggy puppy :( :( :( :(
WHICH MEANS WE HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER TRIP TO SCOTLAND SOON! :D
Another Scotland trip then!! YAY!
i am currently counting down the days till friday.
And yes you can :) you can even book it online. I prefer the Tower Hill branch (It's where we have MEAT club. and it's handier if you're going out afterwards in the east) but Soho is also good if that's a better location for you :)
they do a gameday special which is 15 quid for
a portion of wings (I ask for hot sauce- unless you're a spice warrior avoid the diablo and go for HOT. Mild is for pussies.) AND
a full rack of babyback ribs (however, you can swap this for a half rack of jacobs ladder ribs, or pay a supplemet for a full rack of JL ribs. I've only ever ONCE managed ot eat a full rack of JL ribs. They'er BIG. But they are the best ribs.) AND
C: fries, slaw and a beer (albeit a half of coors light or something.)
It's a brilliant deal but you need to know how you can fiddle it for full value. Scottish style :)
I'm a bit scared.
I read a bit more last night.
I had to stop when it said 'Tomorrow is the dark of the moon.'
I could have read War and Peace in the same amount of time this book is taking me.
I actually got up about 20 times. Trying to rehydrate isn't working out well for me.
ts been cloudy tho so i cant be sure.
It talks about the moon a lot. And it's been too similar to the actual moon. Ooof.
...this morning, and the woman stood next to me fell between the train and the platform when getting off at Canada Water. Looked pretty bad, altho her leg wasn't broken as I first assumed. As they were getting her out from under the train/getting her some help she kept looking at her watch which suggests that you probably shouldn't try to rush on public transport.
I just did a half laugh half cry.
OHHHH SHIIITTTTTTTTT <runs>
You and your rude pussy pics.
I went out, me and the other guy in my year with Asperger's were the only ones trying to pull. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in that situation.
Watching Misery at the moment. Great film.
