On my own (so far)
He's a good guy.
I brought some mince pies.
I had an idea last year to weigh myself before and after my boxing day poo. Biggest poo of the year and all that.
He's panicking about something. It'll be fine.
Tell him to chill out.
7 of us in the office. Too hungover to have a Buck's Fizz so far
I'm merely very tired owing to a four year old who now gets into our bed EVERY NIGHT and kicks me in the ribs/stomach/wherever he can reach.
Not still drunk this time sadly. It's that malaise that feels like some tiny rascal is very gently cheese grating your brain :(
Oh! jacky is in as well. He's Chinese, always hyper, and his folks just bought him a Fiat 500 apparently. He says hi guys
Only me and an Israeli woman in the office today, she doesn't seem to be in the Christmas spirit for some reason.
Pretty pissed off I had to get a peak fare train ticket when they're running a saturday service.
Jokes on them if they think I'm working
sorry for making another thread, dunno what came over me.
It's what happens when you book most of the preceding week off without bothering to check if the office is open on the Monday and then carry over your remaining leave to the following year and HR refuse to let you use some of what is now next year's leave because it's somehow difficult for them to do it.
7 in so far. might be one or two more, unsure. really hope my boss is feeling good today and gives us a early finish.
I hope you get your `early finish` too
Let's see how long before telling me to turn off the office stereo.
but i took it off with a rogue holiday day that id forgotten about.
this is the last day on DiS this year really, so see you all in 2013. Kissy.
Didn't you get the bus home yesterday??
i feel like absolute shit though, massively overdid it with the dalston crawl. as mentioned last night, i couldn't sleep (it went on until about 7am this morning) and so i am still hungover + sleep deprived. kill me.
Thank you for this comforting thread. I thought I was the only one.
Just me and Lorraine from accounts so far
Nothing but trouble
looks like there's no one working on the right hand side of the office but there are a few stragglers on the left, suspect it's going to be a quiet day.
probs just going to go back and tidy the flat for a bit longer before finally heading home.
now allowed to leave if there's no one left on my floor, still one chap working away though, this could get interesting.
I doubt we'll leave before 5pm.
no management in so it'd be rude not to, wouldn't it.
Flying to Waterworld (East Coast Scotland) at 4pm so will be fucking off out of here at about 2pm.
I need to get my Dad something for Xmas today, thankfully I work right at Oxford Circus so plenty of things close by. Any ideas people? He's 64, still very young at heart, plays sports all the time, etc.
I do have to go to the bank though
Working out of Starbucks at Pride Park - on my laptop that is, not actually serving customers or owt. Covering four accounts today - hopefully the advisers will all be too pissed to call me with system problems etc..... Probably be here til mid-afternoon. Pop in for a coffee and a poncey sandwich if you're in the vicinity.
Ah man, I totally would have aswell
This is total shit but at least Stuart bought bacon butties. Good old Stuart. Hoping for an early finish
everyone in the entire office has just realised that we've all smuggled in booze. this is going to get excellent
He asked me what my favourite album of the year was going to be when I got it coz I've been counting them down on my fb page as if anyone cares. He said he's not heard of Alt-J but liked the Burial track i posted. <3 Stuart
get him a cracker and make him wear a party hat
I'm singing all i want for Christmas is you, ooooo Hayley to Hayley now
christmas solitude does crazy things to people. i am keepin' clear
If Rob's name had worked best I'd be singing all I want for Christmas is you, ooooo Rob. I think we're going to the pub at lunch anyway
The radio's on, btw, i'm not a mental
As mentioned above. Do try to keep up, AV
You should definitely go for a drink with her.
we all hate you now
5 of us in
Rob's run out of Xmas songs and is now playing Motown songs
I'm wearing a green sweatshirt
not a bank holiday or owt is it.
(thinly veiled i-work-for-a-public-transport-company post)
Seemingly the only one in. someone is playing church bells outside really loudly. My head is going to explode :(
it's better that your head DOESN'T explode isn't it?
And I'm absolutely mad at everything. For no reason. Nothing has happened or is happening. But I'm still sitting at my desk, grinding my teeth. I think it's because it's pointless being in. I want to go home.
I've got a bottle of beer left over from my secret santa present in the kitchen. Things could get ker-razy. But almost definitely won't.
A) the one who makes you work today, or
B) the one who, at the beginning of December, notices that half the office have taken the day as annual leave, and then decides that it would be too expensive to open up, heat the office and pay the admin staff, and so tells everyone else that the office won't be opening and you'll have to lose a day's leave as a result?
This has happened to my house mate.
But it was done so late that some people didn't have the leave and had to change holiday plans and stuff because HR were incapable of doing the complicated maths involved in letting people borrow leave from next year.
Which is crap, especially as we're discouraged from working from home.
Sitting playing tiger woods with my brother and drinking brndy coffee. Suck my teeth.
Be happy for the ones who only get 41 days a year holiday.
Just below Jimmy Savile and Cyril Smith
but it would have been too ballsy i think
Rachels a whizz on the old joystick I've heard ;)
she prefers 'alternative control systems' if you catch my drift.
She plays as 'PSV Eindhoven' if you understand me.
Awww bad luck mate.
Thanks for the pro advice
You cant tell anyone to chill out
Actually did a bit of work and forgot I was supposed to join the breakfast convoy in the canteen 20 minutes ago. Oh well.
pretty pleased about this
As if they aren't unpopular enough already
i saw him doing PR for that on BBC Breakfast when it came out. he made some awful comment about how he'd go back to rock music because "lute albums don't pay the rent". prick.
My ears are bleeding. How can you get into the Festive Spirit with that boney old twat singing 'hey nonny no' over the tannoy??
Still £24 an hour, Quality Street galore and Sky+.
think it's because I just drank coffee. Don't even like coffee. No more black liquids in 2013!
don't know what that is
I've been fit as a fucking fiddle all year. If I'm ill over xmas then there definitely isn't a god. Or he's a right cunt anyway.
that's the kind of thing god does
The boss just came in and said he'll catch up with us at half 1 and see if we're busy but like fuck am i going to tell him we are even if we are. I can rely on Anna not to tell him as well, so that's ok
I can hardly hear myself playing minesweeper!
I'm eating snack-a-jacks and waiting for the end.
We never get to go early here. FFS.
But it's so quiet that I'm eating chocolate & on DiS
This is me signing off for a couple days, DiS. In the pub already. Look after yourselves you beauties x
Did no work at all.
