and it's shite.
How are you today?
But I'll live.
New shoes giving me grief. Ah well.
Tonight: friend is taking me somewhere secret, I do have an idea of where though
Tomorrow: London Open House, meeting a friend I've not seen for years and house party in the evening
Sunday: last-minute Malaysia plans
Survived my big meeting last night, celebrated by going for beers with some friends I haven't seen forever. This weekend I'll mainly be seeing friends and flat hunting.
Last night; went to the ICU to see my Gran. Not very nice, all being said, but it was good to see her. The nurses have high hopes that she pulls through and stuff, but I'm tempering my expectations. She has sepsis, for anyone in the know. Nice to see her though, she squeezed my hand.
Today: New phone arrives. Relaxation with the lady and the dog.
Tomorrow: Mate's last weekend before he moves to NYC, so maybe going up a mountain and then for drinks. Maybe.
Sunday: A blank, thankfully.
My top smells like its rotting. Weird. I fixed the shower last night and its amazing now. I didnt know itd make it stop being BOILING then FREEZING but it somehow has. Got to go away tonight arghh which means I'll not sit in a pub watchign football on saturday for the first time this season :'( but it does mean I can afford the ents form this site: http://www.majesticbear.net/products/
Its my dad's birthday today so dinner with the family tonight then its my mates girlfriends birthday tomorrow so dinner with them tomorrow. nothing but dinner this weekend.
Parks and Rec started again last night, I need Ron Swanson in my life http://www.lolroflmao.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/ron-swanson-on-fishing.jpg
Totally forgot about that. I don't think I'll be able to watch it until Sunday though, sad face.
made lamb kofte burgers last night. Really good. but could only manage one. I feel like a failure.
In other news I reckon I am in the top 50 gassiest people on the planet atm. CHRIST.
Might go to Party Hard tonight.
Might go to a festival at the Islington Mill tomorrow.
I have Lion Bar cereal, 5 hours work, then off to Bournemouth for the weekend AND I can watch the new Parks and Rec tonight.
Where's he playing, out of interest? No idea what kind of following he has in the UK
No idea how big that is, fairly big I suppose? It's got two levels of seating according to the ticket site, who the hell wants to sit down for Waka Flocka though?
They're £30 though... still.
- do a ridiculous workout dvd I saw an infomercial for and HAD to...download. It's called the Insanity workout. The guys were so convincing and chiseled. Watch me keep up the '60 day shred' for about 2 days.
- Get a takeaway and some beers to watch watch new parks & rec and US Office with. So excited about this. I hope there's lots of Andy (parks). The bits of him in the trailer are amazing.
think i actually cheered when him and april finally got together. Bit sad really, but if i can't live my life vicariously through sitcom characters, what on earth would i do with my time?
I did too. Same with Jim and Pam in The Office. I find myself pretending they're all my actual friends as well, don't worry.
he's pretty much the best.
I saw the informercial! I'd be a bit sceptical, if you were working out that intensely, you'd have to eat ridiculous amounts to have a calorie surplus for muscle gain..
But I am psyched! I don't think my diet will correspond with what's expected, but it looks so silly and fun. I'm even gonna before and after snap myself, like the advert.
I EARNED IT!
i have just started the insanity workout, tho i just read about it on the internet rather than seeing some advert.
i'm enjoying it, tho i dont have time to do it all in 60 days, as they recommend.
prepare to sweat like you've never sweat before!
How long have you been doing it? Which session it the toughest?
other than that can someone call me a waambulance immediately (cue yr a waambulance)
Today: work and gym.
Tomorrow: gig dinner and djin in London
probs will come but not til later.
simply because I cannot be arsed. ANARCHY \m/-_-\m/
Tonight I'm going to Brighton to play some gigs with Serious Sam Barrett and also catch up with loads of friends. Oh, and move my brother into halls. May meet up with an ex, may not. Who knows.
My dad got knocked off his motorbike last night and really hurt his back so had a fairly stressful worrysome evening. They're meant to go on holiday today but they're probably not gonna go. I feel a bit sad :( i'll try to make them a nice dinner tonight if the stay.
Not much else going on other than work is mega mega stressful and I am on the verge of tears a fair bit. Wah.
sorry to hear about your Dad, hope he's alright. And at least it's Friday; no more work for all of 2 days :)
but nothing is broken or seriously damaged, thankfully! He's getting an iPhone 5 today so that should cheer him up. He smashed up his old phone yesterday anyway so it was weird timing!
I'm REALLY not with it today though. I've sent 3 emails to the wrong people....very fucking important emails as well. I am gonna be in some bits of trouble
I think she wanted to ask how I am, but all I got was a running commentary of her walk around the duty free shop at Southampton airport. She's offered to buy me fags and perfume though so I win.
It's far too early considering I had trouble getting to sleep. I'm so tired my eyes feel sore.
I might check my bank balance then depending on the outcome go to town for a bit today. Even if it's just to get a burrito for lunch. I really want a burrito.
Might get the bus to Baker Street at lunch and go to Chipotle. It is Friday after all.
quiet, reserved one. In prep for...
THE UPPER STREET CHALLENGE.
Going to be epic.
>>Desk said to send this over to you to check.<<
It's a pleasant feeling. Like a secure level of happiness.
I'm wearing new work shoes today, as my old ones were leaking and when it rained I ended up with wet socks. And nothing angers me like wet socks.
Dunno what I'm doing this weekend. Probably tidying the house. Going out into town for a friend's birthday in the evening. Sunday chill out and band practice.
Little bit hungover, but getting Waka Flocka tickets today! So that's cheered me up a lot.
Also going to Belgo's for dinner which should be fun, probably drink way too much Gulden Draak.
Couldn't stomach breakfast today, might go to McDonalds for lunch. Hmm.
BRIIIIICCKK SQUAAAAAD BRRRIIIIICCKKK SQUAAAAADDD.
should i get it?
You might as well get the second one though, it's more complete package I hear.
For the first time for ages I have absolutely ZERO plans.
We were going to go to Southampton to visit family and friends but that's now happening next weekend instead.
I would like to do a spot of walking coupled with the ol' food and booze tomorrow and then on Sunday I want to cook a roast, a big roast but I need to invite myself around someones house to do it.
Anyone live in Reading and want me to cook them a delicious roast with all the trimmings? No? ok.
Today I finish work at 11. What shall I do with my day? Everyone else is at work :( I want to start having Friday Fun!
except with more working until up to half 5 depending on when everyone fucks off.
It's equinox tomorrow, this is a sad day in my book. even though i love the autumn and it's all pretty and the world requires me to enjoy cosiness more, i also love light and equinox serves as a stark reminder that I'll soon be spending all the daylight hours of the week in work :( HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
that said, i might get to see some ploughs in the fields soon. i like ploughs in fields. it's my favourite place to see ploughs. here's a list of the 4 places I'm most likely to see ploughs in order of favourite
1) in fields
2) on farms
3) in the Museum of English Rural Life (MERL)
4) on roads.
i want some fun to have. my financial advisor advised me against going to London this weekend, so fun in Berkshire it is. the old walk 'n' food 'n' booze sounds like the best option. I'm sure our mate Jamie will be up for some of that action. they're his favourite things to spend time with us doing.
well, calculated it, and I'm confident in my findings. It seems that there are just under 180 days between September exphinox and March equinox, but just under 186 days between March equinox and September equinox. meaning that if you take equinoxes and solstices as the start and end of each season, Autumn and Winter are both about 90 days, whereas Spring and Summer are roughly 93 days long. I'm pleased by this.
my expenses didn't come through so i can't make a pretty big birthday thing this weekend. I H8 U LIFE. not really. sure i'll get over it but yeah.
I've got a hangover, but it's my birthday and I'm off work so don't care. I'm going to go and get a fry up then get drunk again BYE!
So far i have opened a big tub of Celebrations and a bottle of gin, both sent by my parents. And i'm still happy from my joint second place in AQOS. What a day.
HB BIRTHDAY BUDDY
HB RIGHT BACK! ENJOY YERSELF!
'wow, you're a big lump, aint ya?!'
But its ok guys. I'm pretty sure he was merely referring to my height and not my weight as I am extremely svelte, but at the same time, really well toned. I think if he hadn't had his sixth can of Tennant's he would of said something like 'Hey,you're quite tall aren't you, sir? but also in great shape and obviously work out with a regularity that gives you a perfectly acceptable BMI for your height and weight'
Jeers to the person who scheduled that.
I did a bit of work at Aston Uni for 2 days last month, only earnt £100 from it.
Got my payslip from 'proper' work today and found my tax code had been changed and that 40% of my £700 had been grabbed by the taxman. Rang up expecting great difficulty.
Turns out its a case of the university dragging their heels in terms of sending off a P45 (so from HMRC's point of view, I'm still employed and earning from two jobs). The chap on the phone closed that employment, changed my tax code back to what it was and I'll get my money back next month. Easy. (Although I am still short of £300 odd this month).
and all weekend
It was like an awesome bong but of asthma drugs instead of dope. I feel amazing. I'm going to manchester.
Pleurisy is such fun.
the can't breath bit that precedes it I can do without admittedly.
(probably something to do with all of that sulph I took earlier, haha. No really, a joke.)
but because they film it so stupidly fucking early (18:30) everybody is dropping out.
It's only meths and another friend still in the running. COME ON METHS.
PARTY TIMES CANCELLED
Got gastric flu or sutin. No partying, hard or otherwise for me tonight. Will everyone going to Mcr tonight come to my house and bring nice things for me? Thx x
ta tho x
q: What kind of Italian soft cheese would you use to hide a small horse?
I mean I know it would struggle to fit but I'm a complete gimp who can't get a basic joke.
otherwise it kinda puts this weekend out of action for me,
come on, money.
- told us he wants to dump his workload on us
- told us to dump two features for the forthcoming issue, despite them already being agreed with his boss and the previous PM
- After spending the last two days frantically working on new briefs for features (which we were supposed to be commissioning today), tells us that actually the other two had been agreed so they should come back in
- Asked me to bulletise an email for him that I sent to him detailing said features. Each sentence is already a separate paragraph.
My ex-boyfriend got in touch and instead of ignoring him like a reasonable person, I continued the dialogue and now I feel sad and confused and homesick. :(
Thankfully, my friend wants to head out of the city tonight to do some shopping in the 'burbs so that will be a nice distraction. Tomorrow, I'm going to Santa Cruz or Big Sur so much needed beach times are head.
Going to Cornwall on holiday tomorrow. First time I've been away with my mum and sister for a decade.
Not eaten at all today but going for a curry here, which should be bostin'..
but regardless, booze and music's all I need or something
