Tell me all about your day. I have Lemsip for the poorly and red wine for those who are pissed off.
I forgot about Dexter. Without spoilers (or text/DM me), what did you think about E1?
My reaction was more 'ah, I r disappointtzzzzzzzzzz.'
LIKE WE DIDN'T SEE THAT CHUFFING COMING, really, really really. I think they've got an ankle over the shark these days.
No need to thank me.
I thought that was nice.
So sort of.
As are you iirc.
Now we only share a football team and a first name, rather than a profession.
People talk about the world outside audit in hushed tones of reverence outside my work, but I was semi-convinced that it was like the Carrousel in Logan's Run and it was actually impossible to leave.

my cats are always going to be named after characters from Martin Amis books. She already had a name, Lucy, so her name is now Lucy Littlejohn. My current cat, Keith Talent is doing the jealous cat thing and hiding in a cupboard.
I hate you ALL.
*green jealous rage face*
What are you doing?
Whose bitch are you going to become and doing what?
just a shop assistant but it's better than nothing
and hopefully you'll make some nice friends.
Then i went to town and bought some new hair straighteners and some control knickers. I'm watching UK's Strongest Man 2010 now.
And if they were, you (or s/he) cleaned it at the weekend, yes?
Imagine a male equivalent. Weird.
Ooh, piece of candy. Ooh, piece of candy. Ooh, piece of candy. Ooh, piece of candy. Ooh, piece of candy. Ooh, piece of candy.
Then made some silly threads on here to pass the time.
Feeling a bit better than I was yesterday.
(I don't come here often).
after being told the opposite.
No biggie, feel quite calm and ready to do cool new stuff rather than dwell.
As long as you're okay.
Are you who I think you are btw? I get confused with the myriad of usernames.
This is a terrible idea.
In Wales at the moment, as always it is nice.
Probably become an indie bedwetter about the whole thing.
1) spend less time on DiS, minimising or alleviating bed-wetting potential.
And enjoy. Thursday nights are the best date nights.
just worried that I'll have a pathetic moment a few days after.
But you're right, I should spend less time on DiS.
have many dates. get your confidence back. I have got 5 dates set up for next week. 5 days/5 dates. only coffee though. £2 commitment per day. I'll pump the info into the spreadsheet on Friday night and see where we are from there
not the spreadsheet though. Trouble is I'm such a good date it always goes further (that might not be true anymore, as this is my first date in years).
and basically got bombarded/got bombarded. within one or two messages I said that I wasn't interested in long chats about favourite shoes or whatever. just suggested a striaght coffee. it's the best way, bro. minimum financial/time commitment and you can pretty much fuck off after 20 minutes if things are going horribly wrong.
I only have one pair of shoes. Let's date?
but yeah. we can have a date
I'll let you know when I've finished washing my hair. And then we're on!!!1
I have intimacy issues. PM me!
but how the hell do you have 5 dates in one week?
Can you send me a picture of yourself please?
(0 days since a DiSer has had an existential crisis and all that)
I need advice oh wise ones of DiS. I'm in a similar predicament in that I am 'seriously' dating for the first time since splitting with my long term b/f a year ago. I'm seeing a very nice guy but I can't help but keep comparing him to my ex. Is this a sign that I am an indie bedwetter that still needs more time to get over her ex, or should I just give it time and see if my feelings for this new guy grow?
then met a friend for real ale and cheeseboard.
1 month after taking a job with an organisation that I've previously taken a job with and quit within three months. I'm a bad, bad person.
Not on here, on Facebook.
I've also taken out the aerial from my tv and now just watch the Bond channel.
Tomorrow I think I'll do the Daltons, and maybe Diamonds for the lols.
DM me on Twitter.
- Great cook.
- Plays cricket.
- Has lots of political philosophy books.
- Lived illegally in Russia for a bit.
- Cleaned the bathroom. I offered to help. She politely declined.
I've been browsing civil service jobs after my mum mentioned them. Pay's alright and there's a few going at the moment where I actually have the skills/experience to do them. I'd never really thought about applying for one, do they let "outsiders" in that easily?
yes they do, however, the interview process is very formal and you have to play the game. Get lots of advice from people you knoe who work in the CS.
Go for it.
Sounds like a keeper. You should totally make moves on her.
you knows it
Tried abandoning the post as soon as I posted but it didn't work :( It was like there was an open goal but the ball came at speed with an awkward bounce.
I was thinking something about sticky wicket. then I got bored
I don't make moves on girls in relationships, experience has taught me it's not a good idea.
There's also that whole "don't shit where you eat" principle too...thoughts on that principle in general?
Don't shit on your own doorstep.
Stay away from work colleagues and flatmates.
I think it's okay to show a healthy interest if you know that situations are due to change though.
then all of sudden a strange guy, who later revealed himself as a struggling clown, threw a giant Toblerone at me; a man outside fell of his chair then everyone started shouting about Africa. The chair falling man, also the Africa shouting instigator ordered a taxi, ordered a pint, shouted at the taxi for being too quick, cancelled it, immediately ordered another, shouted at that one when it arrived, poured his drink all over his lap and then after he left the clown started making balloon animals. I left as it was like some weird nightmare and cut down an alley only to find a man walking around looking lost and holding out a bag of bloody chicken giblets.
JFC. Weird Monday.
Manchester feels lovely at the moment. When it's dry and autumn it's beaut, especially crossing the canal where all the barges have their wood fires that smell gorgeous and the geese are all walking about having a great time.
I bought a caramel macchiato from Starbucks on my travels. I actually think they're my favourite thing.
NOW I FEEL STUPID
there's a little barge at the moment down on the canal called Gregory's Girl <3
I love them. Apart from the black goth ones that have been parked near the Wharf all summer.
right up to the caramel macchiato bit.
Did you keep the Toblerone? They're best eaten from the fridge btw.
as I couldn't leave my room until ultimate douchebag went to bed. I have two triangles left. I feel so sick.
I seem to remember you banging on about this months ago. if it takes more than say 50 words, don't bother.
I can't afford to move anywhere else, but I'm looking.
My flatmate now seems to think I'm a brilliant cook. Really all I did was bought a splendid recipe book...
It makes him easy to live with!
went well, no DIS at5 work now though! Had half hours sleep though so I'm shattered now
The Witch Of Endor
there's a photo somewhere
Ffs. This is why I can't have nice things.
Biting tastes gross. Pick it off straight from the shower or after doing the washing up.
the keyboard is different and it feels weird.
Apart from that i'm probably the most bored i've ever been over the past few weeks. I hate it. It makes me really boring.
Going to see balam acab in manchester on wednesday though so that'll be nice at least i'll be out the flat.
a gig. See? Life is suddenly amazing again.
how was your day then
The lot of you. GET.TO.FUCK.
I'm feeling positive in general though. Felt really manic the last couple of weeks, just got this urge to do stuff. Fighting the oncoming winter maybe. The shortening days have made me feel a bit down and my mood's swinging around a bit recently. Tomorrow I might feel depressed again. Kind of want to grab life by the horns a bit at the moment though, take some opportunities rather than just waiting for stuff to happen.
God that post is all over the place.
If there was an entry exam to post on DiS, you just passed it.
I'll be bedwetting with the best of them soon.
Might have a potato cake as well, might not. I live on the edge that way.
It's ok. I like that belligerent Italian gangster who is always on the verge of beating someone to death. The guy who plays disfigured guy is a phenomenal actor, why isn't he in more stuff? Was also wondering why Michael Pitt wasn't in it so googled and was like wtf.
Feels like it's going through the motions a bit, though - new rival, new love interest, new issue for Nucky's tedious mrs to harp on about.
quite a lot of new characters introduced, and sadly another of the bigguns got popped early.
i'm hoping for a fallout between Nucky and Rothstein, hopefully with lots of Richard.
love that show. defo my favourite american show at the moment. actually, I remember my pal telling me last night that a new season has started on SKy. so season 3, yeah? he said it;s not so good without Jimmy. what you say, man?
Jimmy was the best character, for me. it's stilll better than virtually anything else on telly without him, but no-one has the same sort of stage presence as Michael Pitt did.

I said this yesterday
I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow morning. Life is better than it was.
you're a fucking great guy. one of the best cats on here. no shit. hope you get through this stuff.
similar thing happened to me a few years back. we can chat about that, if you like.
anyway, sounds like you're taking the first steps, which is ultra cool.
bet writing that stuff out was a really cathartic process for you.
good luck, bruh
I hope things look up for you soon and that you've got the best people onside to help you through. All of us on the boards are here for a chat if you ever feel the need to vent.
The hardest thing about watching this kind of thing from the outside looking in is seeing the default tendency to internalise stuff and rebuke one's self, and the destructive vicious cycle that creates. Fuck that awful spiral, and fuck it thricely. Hope that sharing and seeing the doc is part of the first step towards a better state of affairs.
as you're SUCH a nice, lovely person who deserves to feel better than you do.
Its really good that you are getting help to sort it out and it will get better. I guess you just need to understand your moods more to be able to stop yourself from getting into that rut. I know everyone has said this but if you ever need someone to email/chat to or hang out with, you know how to get hold of me.
I don't know you at all but read both forum posts with sadness/interest. I know just how you feel and it really does help to let it all out. Speak to friends, see a GP, speak to a therapist (plenty of free services out there), message strangers on forums, much better than keeping it all within like an evil bee buzzing in your brain and guts.
I'm in a spiral of gloom myself at the mo and have been for a good few years I think and even more so the past year. I split with my wife last summer, moved out alone and away from my daughter and 'normal' life as I knew it. Outside of that situation I've always been prone to depression and negative thinking. Socially I'm OK, I can mix it up and have a good laugh but a darkness pervades and I've no idea why. The cliche of feeling lonely in a room full of people. Made worse now by hitting 40 and having good friends all coupled up and doing family things, ie: not much time to drop by anymore, too many nights in alone.
Touching on the Monday nighter theme - I was out playing pool with 3 good mates last night, they boozed, I'm abstaining, I reigned supreme at pool, had a good laugh. Then they asked how I was, started talking about internet dating (what a minefield that is, pretty soul destroying in itself and worthy of a new thread), I felt a gloom coming on then left soon after. Got the train home, listening to good music, arrived at my flat, closed the door behind me then felt overwhelming sadness and started crying. That happens quite a lot so I know where you're at when you descried the feeling in the club. It's awful having it all well up out of nowhere.
Feel free to drop a line. Sounds like you have good friends via here so use them.....they're offering. It's good reading their comments.
Maybe drop the booze for a bit? I know for me that a hnagover drags me into horrible waters. I get blue the next day after drinking anyway so having a mind warping hangover on top of an already depressed system is not good. It's not made me a bouncing happy bunny giving up for 8 weeks so far but it least that confusion and self hatred isn't there come a Sat or Sun morning.
Hope the GP thang goes well. Don't hold back and good luck.
