i love you all. i'm so drunk. i have to go to work now.
you drew, I lost. :/
Too much white wine in a short period of time, then cocktails and then a sketchy memory of getting a bus home and drinking beer in my bed whilst calling up friends who didn't really want to be speaking to me at 2am. ABJECT DISBELIEF when then the alarm went off a few hours later. Sat on the floor of the DLR into work putting on lipstick and my shoes. Managed to sober up in about 25 mins flat though. Eat some crisps. That's what fixed me <3
i want to close my eyes
I am not drunk. I might be drunk tonight.
My arms hurt.
My arms hurt too :(
i suspect the thread title mistake is deliberate, for humours sake
and i hadn't noticed it before
that was genuine
but i'm not.
i hope they're prepared for me.
Weekend starts in 4 hours.... 3 blissful days with my girlfriend whom I haven't seen in a month.
Hope this sunshine sticks around <3
Should the fact that my position became available because it was made redundant 18 months ago and then reinstated reassure or terrify me?
after reassurances about the job's security, so will go ape if I'm affected.
found out the other week that my job's on the line when they made out that it was completely secure when they hired me. I'm probably safe til October but i'm gonna start looking elsewhere anyway.
Basically you can't trust anybody about anything these days.
I'm always nervous about moving jobs for this very reason, but you have to go with what you think's right at the time. Fingers crossed you're in the clear :)
I *think* I'm okay. Famous last words ...
had pasta, wine, dark chocolate & watched half of I Am Love last night with the missus, lovely evening
also listened to that daniel rossen ep several times over, it's delightful
but then I got back and put it in the fridge and left it there. Feel so drained though. Monday I did a story about a girl who was paralysed from the neck down after surgery went wrong, and can't even breathe on her own. She's going to carry the Olympic torch, which is great, but it's such a sad story. Yesterday I met a guy who's wife died after 10 years with cancer, and they're naming a hospital wing after her. Her husband is 6ft5, a karate black belt, and I sat in his living room while he cried and told me about her.
I felt helpless. His war hero dad died last year and I did a story and he said I'd done him proud (he had it framed on the wall) so I guess I have to do the same again. I just don't think I have the constitution for this job. So much sadness.
Seeing Los Campesinos! tonight. Not entirely in the mood.
you could've justified that beer I reckon
There are so many jobs that I'd like to do, but can't because I'm a massive girl.
Jel of Los Camp.
Just remembered I haven't replied to your message! I will do this.
But that should only preclude you from short-arsed jobs, like chimney sweep.
I've got a couple of LC! spares if you want?
As David St Hubbins said, this has all been too much fucking perspective, but you have to look at the good things.
Now where's that beer?
and having to put most (if not all) of your personal ethics to the side to do the job 'well' meant that journalism wasn't for me.
Nuff Respect for being able to do it and not be a hollow, morally bankrupt prick though.
How did TH get drunk if he was only in 10? He text me at midnight saying he was wasted. Lightweight.
I had to pretend kiss some right creepy old dude on a car park last night. By the end of today I would have worked 64 hours since Monday :/
On at 10
drunk happened. that's all i know
Was this an acting gig?
I played shaun ryders date on monday
MAD FER IT!
are you an official actor now then?
No. Just extra work but cast as a hero girl which means getting used with the main cast rather than all background.
I hope you took a big bag with you so can fill it up on stuff from catering.
We have like two cookef breakfasts then a three course meal then sandwiches.
I'm not. ARGH.
Worked late last nighit, did laundry, went to bed. This weekend had better bloody be good. Seriously considering chucking it all in and having a massive change of direction. or moving home. ah, thursday blues, I miss my dogs :'(
you'd better not be thinking of moving to Tunbridge Wells
shall be used this weekend at some point.
Of course, that process might fail and the job might come back on, but I really need to find something NOW. Sigh.
I don't think TW is very.... 'me'.
and if you can't pull him
you can always sign on the sick.
and knowing what it was/who he was.
apllied for a job last night. then found out it was a job my mum used to do when i was a kid. weird. no your mum + job jokes please, i know it's asking a lot...
listened to Goo for the first time this morning, why had i not give SY any attention until last month?? Mildred Pierce - :o
i'll do your mum's job
yes you are
i'll buy you an apron.
that was an accident
comprehension will be a bit faulty.
I don't even remember posting it. Probably shouldn't use my phone when i'm half asleep.
or vodka enema, whichever your innards would handle more easily.
are you at the point of wanting to sober up?
plus i'm going on a date tonight, so generally pulling myself together would be awesome
Coffee, strong and sweet.
Emergency Berocca, get them diuretics in there, flush stuff out.
This evening is ages away, you'll be fine for your date (you might need a disco nap if you can fit it in).
Continue drinking, but starting now with bloody mary's until lunchtime, (one per hour), then a sturdy lunch then pace the afternoon out with fruity girl drinks (one per hour) until 5pm then something bready or chippy then white russians until it's time to go meet the date.
<exits stage left - tap dancing>
Stayed up trying to finish war in the north but got stuck argggh. Slyly asked my grandma if she could tell me how much game of thrones is at the shop (she'll buy it for me cos shes sound). Might go for drinks tonight on my own, going to an estate pub is awesome after living in the IMPERSONAL CITY
What does she look like?! or name would be good too...and why? Is it cos you are an actress now?
Also got that fit one from Misfits opposite me. Babe fest.
GIVE HER MY NUMBER AND TELL HER HOW COOL I AM!
Total babe though
Then post it on the interweb.
Purely for scientific research purposes.
shes hot as chuff.
The girls don't chat, except Rowetta but that's just to show off about how many drugs she's had. The male cast are ace though
Oh yeah, that reminds me of the time I had 15 heroins and fell over. AH-HAHAHAHAHA!
Yesterday I vommed so hard that I pulled a muscle.
Feeling better today, stabbing stomach pains aside. Wish my Game of Thrones DVD would hurry up and get here, though. Bit bored.
Also quietly hoping that three days of puking and not eating has made me lose some weight. Silver lining etc.
As some of my housemates hadn't been paying rent. Now I've to commute to college and work 6 days a week. FACK.
plus, my parents told me today that both of them are going for tests + treatment for cancer.
Horrible two days they've been. At least I'm kinda glad to be living with the folks if they're sick.
Hope everything picks up soon.
I really hope your folks are ok. Might not be a bad thing, as you say, being at home for a bit while they cope with their news. x
Yeah its just a matter of several pieces of shit hitting the one fan in a short space of time. But it doesn't matter, we had a really nice evening last night regardless.
I was about to text you and ask you to come out tonight :(
oh i see. yes. i fail. can we do this tuesday though?
I had to leave Nasdaq early to get the last train back. I fell asleep and woke up in fucking Huddersfield. I do not live in Huddersfield. The last train back to Manchester was at 10 past midnight. I thought about sleeping in the station but then I realised that would mean going to work in the same clothes and was worried that people would think I was having a breakdown. Got the train to Manchester, thought I'd missed the Piccadilly stop and was on my way to the airport because the train stopped at somewhere that I was convinced was Piccadilly but I pressed the button and the door didn't open so I must have looked like a mental because 5 mins later we arrived at Piccadilly. I then got a black cab back to Stalybridge coz I couldn't be arsed calling a taxi to come from Stalybridge. I saw the pound signs in the driver's eyes when I told him where I was going. He asked me if I knew how much it would be and I said about 30 quid. He said usually he would charge 35 but for me it would be 30 if I paid up front. Managed to stay awake all the way home and got back about half 1. Shitter. Didn't see cat_race at the gig. The support band were well good but I can't remember what they were called. Saw a flat in Withington yesterday that was really strange. Going to see two houses in Chorlton tonight. Just want to sleep in a proper bed. That's all I have to say for now I think.
I'm seeing somewhere in Chorlton on Saturday as well, it sounds pretty amazeballs
i was on the look out for you but up until bands played i was hanging out the back of the place. support band was champion lover
Albany Rd on Sat. They're all fairly central I think? I don't know Chorlton that well but I remember looking one up on Streetview and seeing that it was quite near to Abode which is nice coz I saw my friend's band there once and they were really good.
I move into my new flat tonight which is more that end so we'd practically be neighbours. NYBGC4LYF
Hey wilykit, change of co-op for you then? Mine is ace now.
Truly I have arrived in Mecca. Also I think I now live above Marble which fufills another life ambition.
Oooo, let's go to marble next week, yes
Also someone should push through the Chorlton/Manchester meat up. It can happen in Marble.
My one has just renovated and has loads more stock too. Would recommend.
Also, next MEAT April 14th. Though obvs we can do one before...maybe in the 'burbs somewhere
Might get a BMX on the cycle to work scheme. I've gone off the electric bike idea now. Only got like a week to make my mind up though.
Don't need it for actually getting to work, I can get on the bus for free coz I work for the bus company
Central and Everett both look like they're in West Dids to me, though?
Brain no worky so good
Totally West Dids. Good job you said, I would have been on the bus to Chorlton after work like a megaspaz
I won't, I'm going to go home and go to bed
i'm in salford. some other time though
it would be rude not to
but there was no-one there so we went to Trof for one and came back after 9 and it was well busy. My mate fancied the drummer from Champion Lover. He wasn't really into the music though and he kept calling me a hipster. I don't know why
He said he didn't know who Holy Fuck were and that Gang Gang Dance weren't words, I was just making sounds like Ga Ga Da, which made me a hipster. I told him he had seen Holy Fuck supporting Foals and he said he didn't think The Foals were that good that night. I told him he was wrong and they're not called The Foals, it's just Foals and he said I was a hipster. I don't understand him but I do love him, he's such a drunken nob
Aw man, even more gutted I didn't get there!
If so yes
He's the totally hot one
He is totally hot
I can take the mick out the other two tomorrow with this information. I find them all hot.
i have a knack for confusing things in the live arena of conversation.
Join the chorlton gig
I mean gig
i meant a hat hard on
lols are coming fick and thast today
and they were using it as a makeshift laboratory and they said we couldn't come in because if we did they would release a trigger that would make their thermo-nuclear device blow us all up.
wtf?! where is it
which i'm SO fucking excited for. I've waited about 2 months for this and seeing Therondy in real life, on the front row, is going to be a fucking experience.
c_r I always used to eat lots of almond crossiants and down pro plus' when I was drunk at work.
I am also excited.
we have booze
yeah lets do it.
can i stay in your bed, c_r?
and yes you can.
not sure on the reliability here
at some point.
can't stay out tho. will need to get up at like 5am or something so i can warm up/eat proper.
I will not be there. I'm away. Come to that Carefully Planned all dayer thing in a few weeks, someone will tell you when it is coz I don't remember
am yet to determine the state of my hangover
hitting the toilet wine again was it?
Now I don't know what to do with the rest of it.
which means i have to go to work on saturday :(
To compensate I've taken on some freelance work and have been given The Steve Wilkos show to transcribe :(
Going to cycle to Greggs now.
not the most pleasant experience - though the gel was warm, which was kind of nice - and the lady found 'nothing sinister'.
which is a roundabout way of saying 'no sir, you don't have cancer'.
which is, like, a whole month of +s right there.
what's your angle, heathen?
assumed you were pregnant
happy that your new blob isn't a harbinger of evil.
nothing worse than a feotus with an eldrich bent, there's been a couple of films about that sort of thing and it rarely turns out well.
no rending of my loins in twain. thankfully, given I'm not a wimmin.
That landlord dispute has finally been sorted. Although i havent got an apology. They hounded me saying i owed over a grand. I knew i didnt.
Finally emailed me back today.. and she actually said ''i see the mistake now, you didnt account for....."
oh my! i could kill her. I didnt account for?! LOL
at least its sorted. I actually only owe under a £100. its a massive leap from 1400 odds.
*sigh* at least its sorted.
I need to participate in these threads more often. what's all this Manchester chit-chat? are there things happening??
because I'm up for whatever.
but I know that for sure there's a MEAT of some sort on Arpil 13/14 that I need to tell you all about. Looks like another is being planned for later in the month too but that first date chintz, meowington and PO will be here too. Possibly monnipenni too?
am excited. not going miss these ones due to clashing gigs and such, no siree.
