hi. how are we all?
i am knackered.
Do any bored history graduates want to write me timelines for around 40 countries?
then Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine etc.
My desk. Tomorrow morning.
got told off this morning for parking in the GM's parking spot. hahaha. what a self important prick. i wouldn't have done it except the car park is way too small for the number of people that work here and it's totally impossible to get public transport here.
then i got told off by my boss for suggesting i might look into changing the packaging lines on a couple of products. another self-important moron. he has no skills except talking shit.
BUT?!!!!! i'm going to the states 6 weeks tomorrow and i am WELL excited now.
oh also, i think it's been made easier to set up a multiplayer minecraft server. may have a look into it tonight if people are interested
i've never really fancied a bike but i have been making an effort to get into shape more lately and last night i had a dream i had a bike and i was riding around going past all these areas and it was really fun (although the bike was a little bit uncomfortable - i think it didn't fit me very well) and now i am thinking about getting a bike!!
the idea of being able to ride over 25 miles every day is a bit ridiculous though. i would probably have to set off for work at about 6am
terminates about two stops from my work. i then have to get two trains to the stop "at" my work, and walk 30 minutes through an industrial park. i am seriously considering trying it. i need to though, as the car needs a check up as a light came on the dash a few weeks back.
if you get a chance check out the post office in bellshill, it's like a mini-village inhabited only by old people/folk on smack
I'm pretty jealous of that.
Also minecraft- go for it!
can not wait.
i had a quick tinker at setting up a server last night but i couldn't make it work. i didn't look into it very far though. also the problem is my laptop is shitty so it might not run very well. i'll have a crack tonight and see how i get on.
which is actually a sort of small table i suppose so it's in the right territory. i was hoping to source some good wood for free but it's proving difficult. i might just pony up and buy some. i have been reading online and it sounds really complicated. i'm trying to decide whether or not to just throw myself into it with a saw and a hammer and some nails or if i should really try to follow some pattern or instructions. thoughts?
sound advice there that i would never follow myself, but always wish that i did
cross out any bits that you don't think are necessary (varnish? not ESSENTIAL is it)
follow the instructions
edit the instructions. cheers blud
I'm in good spirits today.
Went to Meadowhall in Sheffield last night. It's a bit terrifying, it really reminded me of Dead Rising. However, they do have a Lego shop. And reminds me of how shite the Nottingham shopping centres are.
Gigging this evening, in a room which will be the biggest I've played in Nottingham. Fully expecting it to be mostly empty, haha.
I might have a pain au chocolat this morning..
Wasn't that busy though. I was also disappointed there wasn't a big screen in the food court showing the olympics.
I could turn up and sneer to make it look like you are popular enough to be reviled.
Think we're on around 8ish- I'm in Fresh Eyes for the Dead Guy.
Turn up and shout internet memes at us!
I'm bored already.
Saw Ted yesterday, it was ok
I'm stupidly happy about this, I hated that kettle with a passion
Two weeks (alright, not expecting miracles in that time, just a small nudge of the scales to the left would be nice) of healthy dinners, fruit for breakfast, no snacks, no crisps, no chocolate, no fizzy drinks, gym three or four times a week for cardio-heavy - same weight as when I started.
This week: Dominos, chippy, Ben & Jerry's, crisps with lunch, occasional snack, one half-arsed gym trip - no change in weight.
Fuck off, Tuesday.
which weighs more than fat.
so don't give up!
Suppose my legs are getting a good hiding, though. And if nothing else, the cardio good for my heart.
Just fancied a bit of a whinge, really. Cheers for the encouragement!
If you've not done any strength training yet- try mixing some of that in with the cardio. Even just bodyweight exercises (push-ups, squats, dips, chin/pull ups) that you can do at home will help weight loss.
Maybe see weight loss as a side effect of being fitter- if you're doing more cardio, and getting stronger, then I'm sure you'll look and feel better for it!
just gonna write off the next two days in excitement
im hungover. Stoopid quiz.
Gonna browse the FT for an hour.
Finishing up thesis stuff today. Had a bit of an embarrassing weekend as I ended up at a house party with a certain girl's sister. I knew nobody there and I spoke a load of shite until the early hours, when I got kicked out for one reason or another. Ah well.
had a massive10 hr sleep last night so feel pretty refreshed
work is boring
have a friend coming round tonight to look at holiday sanps
other than that - bit dull today
might be a blessing in disguise, was too far away from where we moved, and i'm pretty excited about building raised beds for the back garden. God i'm dull!
I've still got 9 months left on my phone contract, but i'm already sizing up replacemnts, probs a bit early, but that's what 15 months with a Wildfire S will do. fucking lack of internal storage.
I bought one for my Wildfire S a few months ago I think it was around 9.99 for 4Gb (or thereabouts).
came with the phone i think. Everything i can move across has been moved across, but still pretty much every week i get the low internal storage message. I've not really got any apps installed on the phone itself now, other than the hotmail one (the built in email on is crap), and photos go straight onto dropbox. humph.
Go into App settings -> click on app -> scroll down and click on clear cache/data
i know yr only trying to be helpful, and i appreciate that.
but GEEZ IF ONLY I'D THOUGHT OF THAT EARLIER.
Could have just said 'Yeah I've done that'. At least you've helped me with this http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4367664#r6923244 Cheers.
this bit: 'i know yr only trying to be helpful, and i appreciate that.' was entirely serious.
please don't cry, sweet, sweet ETHAM
will do the same today
how is it going? where do you go to play?
and has a set in the basement. So everyday I'm off work I'm playing them here <3 After this week though I think I'll use the practice rooms in town
I think Plank are jamming here tonight. I might make dinner. Come over if these things happen.
(with boys and a gamecube)
Say hi to everyone. I'll cook you dinner one time in my life, I swear it.
i wouldn't be able to move my arms.
but my ankle is killing me. I have old lady joints. I'll get over it though
you don't play drums with yr feet.
hope yr ankle gets better
bass drum innit
i havent' played my guitar in years nad i wasn;t very good at it anyway so my arms would probably hurt afterwards
join Schwing. That's my band, innit (nb. band does not yet exist other than me on drums and I have no songs but I'm just going to do covers of songs that were written exclusively for film and TV, like you know, for fictious bands in films or shit them songs :D WHY WOULD YOU NOT WANT TO JOIN THAT?!)
I'm not as good as Wyld Stallyns though
(hope you're ok)
off festival was amazing, going to work straight after without sleep wasn't. had a friend over for dinner straight after work too. not a good idea.
still feel tired today. no plans tonight but really need to get to le gym.
almost signed this message off with my work footer. oops.
It's bucketing down outside. BBC weather is insistent that it isn't raining.
or a ''she's so annoying I want to die and take her with me in a fireball of ritghous vengance'' way?
*yes that's right I said dreamy, wanna make something of it?
I'm just so used to the later from the misanthopes on here I had to check.
just get her kissed one way or another
I'm very happy, if slightly shitting myself now as it's a bit scary! Onwards and upwards. Now I need to tell my current employers, who know that this news is coming, and are making me wait. Grrrr.
what, where?! EE :D so happy for you
:'( RIP James.
Such tragic news. x
