Tell me of your most righteous goings on today.
Also if possible start your post with a retro word of celebration
Today I will lie in bed and make a presentation on these clay figurines from the olden days. I may eat a bag of satsumas. What are you going to do today?
I am already two satsumas into today. I will be working one of my last days of my current job and therefore be half-arsing it. Then, I am goin to watch Die Hard because Die Hard.
Perhaps try the classic satsuma + Die Hard combo. Thank me later.
Die Hard With a Lettuce.
Just gonna make a slide with 'Gimbutas was a bit daft' typed on it spin in, repeatedly.
Going to apply to train to become a teacher today I think.
And then say farewell to a couple of dear friends this evening.
Is there a cutoff? If I'm say 35 and I get round to applying will they tell me to fuck off?
The thing about teaching is that loads of people train to do it, but few do it until they retire, I think you'd be a good candidate at 35 because they'd expect that you are certain it's what you want to do with your life. How old are you now, out of interest?
But I've been pretty sure I'd like to move into teaching then since bout 20
I'm considering making a sign from a screenshot of the time I corrected him about something on Twitter.
Well that doesn't help me at all
>>>>why is there an apostrophe after the word months in the sentence 'two months' time'? <<<<<<
This is going to be a long day.
Need to sort out some bills this morning.
Let me know if you need muscle
which means we have to a big hotel with loads of other people and probably look at department structure charts for a couple of hours. I don't give a shit as I'm leaving here in about 4 weeks :D
It will be boring and probably long though, which isn't good.
That would liven things up.
And the first meeting is Layoffs Due to Commandercool's Mutiny
they don't know I'm leaving yet. I'm hoping that I get made redundant so I can get a payoff and then hand in my notice in a fortnight :D
Need to buy a watch.
I have three watches with no battery in.
We didnt go together anywhere. Nice watch story. Might pass it off as my own.
I'm staying in a hotel room with no windows at the moment, which I thought was a bit crap but I've been having the best sleep I've had for months so I've really come round to the idea. Going to brick over all the windows in my house when I get home.
still on DiS?
for hundred reasons/hell is for heroes on Saturday, spent last night reliving the magic whilst pottering about my room
had my first kebab for about 4 years last night in a moment of madness, was pretty tasty
This came up in conversation last night.
I left soho at 4am and got home at 5. I hate my friends.
See you theeeeeeere
I've been practicing listening to HIFH and Hundred Reasons this week.
It's been quite a while since i listened to either of them, and it's been really quite enjoyable
in the same boat, been singing along, cant wait
Feeling pretty rough now. I can feel the tonsilitis coming on again. Fab.
Went to see Purity Ring last night. They were AMAZING. Best gig.
That cannot be good for you, shirley?
They're just bits of food stuck in your tonsil that goes hard and grows bacteria. And if you don't get them out, they grow more and more bacteria and thats how you get tonsillitis. I'm lucky in that I can see where it is and know how to get them out (always in the same place where I choked on a lego brick as a child) so nothing gets stuck in there for a long period of time.
Everyone gets them though....where it feels uncomfortable in your throat and you have to gargle stuff to try to dislodge it and then it suddenly feels better?
I think I drink enough liquor for these bad boys not to form in the first place. I've had tonsillitis loads of times but never these. I'm honestly not sure that pickingn these things out is going to save you from STrep. If anything, surely, you're opening up a vulnerable bit of flesh to be attacked by it?
Just thought I would add that irrelevant piece of info into the conversation.
You're making me feel like a freak for being ill and having something that is completely natural and will probably happen to everyone at some point. Its a tiny bit of food stuck in your throat growing bacteria that if you don't remove, you will get tonsilitis and get really ill. So I have to remove it. Most people get it and don't even realise, it just feels a tiny bit uncomfortable in your throat and then it goes away.
You've all had embarrassing medical problems at some point in your life and tonsillitis isn't even embarrassing so do one.
It's calcium and it's fucking awful if it's got to that stage. (also, having looked into it, they are completey beign and no NOT cause tonsillitis.) If you're removing bits of stuck food, then that's one thing (try gargling vigorously when you brush your teeth to dislodge- prob safer than poking things out of your tonsils.)
Its not like the pictures you've googled and what you're talking about which are large, untreated, unremoved tonsil stones. Most people get small tonsil stones but the large tonsil stones you are thinking of are small tonsil stones that aren't removed and harden and become very large which have to be removed by laser. I don't have this.
By definition, tonsil stones are calcified deposits which have started as bacteria but which are effectively dead, ie turned into fossils basically. I don't think what you're talking about is proper tonsil stones. Which I imagine is a huge relief for all concerned.
Fucking hanging. Make yer breath stink an all, stinky breath
Some people get it stuck where they can't see it or remove it and it REEKS. Luckily I can always get to mine.
you'll probably be able to smell me coming though :(
But I still think you should breathe on AV's face.
is a tonsil stone
You've probably had them before. Its just the actual term for FOOD STUCK IN MY TONSILS.
It's calcified debris.
Don't look at that. Thats gross. Thats not what I have.
That's also calcified debris. I don't get it nearly as bad as the pics on wikipedia.
That makes me queasy!! Surely they'll remove your tonsils if it's that bad?!
the guy described the last few years as being "travelling and adventuring"
he seemed like a bell end.
but fucking hell, I am so envious of him right now.
we're doing Lapland of course just before Christmas - I still can't believe you've not done Lapland yet.
Utter idiot fitting the blinds - I've had to ring the company twice.
Fretting about Johnny's lunchbox because he won't eat anything i give him except for the little bombay mix packets.
i just want to know where you can get them from
My friend is a stewardess and her house is full of them.
(they do japaense rice crackers in 1st. I don't think you get anything in cattle class. Maybe pretzels.)
She posts me stuff all the time. usually unsolicited, and often related to 'alternate therapies'.
(ladies and gents, I give you ANGEL CARDS. I will perform readings for any of you for a small fee.)
if it's any consolation the lady seemed very happy, despite Johnny being a little shit re: lunchbox.
Still, equally gross and odd.
I am gong to bedat 9pm tonight.
YES. YES YOU ARE.
feeling good for no reason.
george has learned to escape his pen though. not sure how, he only does it when I'm not looking.
ho is george?
I saw a pug puppy in soho last night and he tugged at his lead to get to me because he knows that I am the Leader of Pugs.
asked if anyone was about on twitter. NO ONE ANSWERED
We went to bodega negra.
And other places. Turfed out of milk and honey at 4 and now, I wnat to DIE.
and a wee bastard
Wriggly and furry, likes to wriggle about in sand
they come from peru, make nice coats
am second only to japes.
and CC'd BEPA (British Egg Products Association)
I am sure you will be hearing from them.
I LOVE chinchillas!
I think they are destroyers of stuff though. And nippy little cunts too.
I made george a cardboard castle last week and he just sits there looking at me like he hates me.
I think tolerance is the most I can hope for.
I think he just hates *you*.
Here is my evidence-
Urgh. It almost feels like they're protesting against US :(
There are police everywhere.
but i hope you all have a good day.
We all want to hear it.
impressed by Pirlo's beard.
what a beard
what a man
Certain things are really starting to frustrate me though. Silly things that should just be sorted out once and for all.
These things can happen side by side
I had a great start to the day, slipped on my way into the train station, almost fell backwards but managed to steady myself, thankfully. I hate falling over, it's so embarrassing... which is why i decided to do it again while on the train, landing in some poor guys lap.
I am going to spend all day on the internet again.
If I can't remember the dates of a job I did and the agency aren't being helpful at all, should I just make it up?
I can't wait for my lentil stew and cabbage lunch mmmm!
Going to this tonight too.
I love The Retreat, so gutted the current 'landlords' are leaving :(
Then it's either a solo mission to see The Master or going to see Lasse Marhaug do some noise in Morden Tower which is a venue in thee city walls.
It's byob as well so I might do some north east problem drinking if I go
Genuinely really really loved it, and the weather, aside from a bit of nighttime rain, was wonderful! Saw so much and ate a lot of very good food.
Back home now. took two hours to get into work today. desk is full of stuff to do and angry people are on the phone :/
And he was wearing a cravat <3
Has anyone ever texted Tube Crush? No reason.
Tell me more
There's a little thing in the Metro where people that want to bone each other text in to. It's brilliant.
like what if you read it, and it's you, and you think 'hang on i don't know who the person who wrote it is! but what if they're hot??'
how do you then get back in touch? it's never me so this is a hypothetical situation.
Please do this.
You were the girl with shoes on. I am the man with hair who gets the bus every day. Coffee?
Hi you were the girl who carried on staring at me on the 2:32 to bromley
UNLESS YOU WERENT IN WHICH CASE WHATEVER IM TAKEN ANYWAY
The gays loved his "big arms".
Top, top bants.
just put in the relevant request
going to go to the christmas maret at some point. i'm going to end up buying either; nothing at all because it's all far too expensive OR loads of food because it's the cheapest thing to buy.
i found a new way of making fart noises with my mouth and it's probably the best yet - open your mouth and rest your teeth and lips on back of your hand hand. blow.
i like it
So far not going as well as I would have hoped.
Currently being distracted by the sudoku(s) in the i.
going to listen to it now.
