Currently en route to Winchester. S'alright.
What are you up to?
It was supposed to be here on Saturday.
Can we pretend I said Thursday? God.
First day in our new office. It's really high up so I can see the beautiful stretches of Hatfield.
I went for my pre-interview interview on Tuesday. Despite what they told me over the phone they don't think I have experience. Gutted. Still, they're putting me forward for another role in Soho which I'm pleased about.
I'm playing a festival with Lene Lovich in August. ALRIGHT.
It's not Wednesday. Thank fuck it's not.
Going to buy a dining table today at lunch for my new house. That's pretty cool, right? No idea where we are going to store it until we move...
What mind of dining table? You got a link?
but seeing as i've already bought it the guy's already taken it offline. fucking excellent.
I keep having a recurring dream where I don't have another job lined up after my contract for this one finishes in May. It's making me feel really anxious when I wake up, urgh.
On the plus side I have tickets for The Knife and tonight I'm going to see ADAM BUXTON do his BUG thing. God I love Adam Buxton.
...to asia when your contract is up
I guess the fact I don't know *what* I'm doing is making me anxious, IDK.
...to asia and work it all out later. I resigned t'other day, and I've booked a flight, and that's it. I don't know what I'm doing either, yet i highly recommend it.
But I know I should. Hmmm.
And actually of The Knife too. The only gig I have forthcoming is David Bazan on the 25th (which is incredible news)
He needed to show he was in Scotland before th 1st to be able to claim funding and scottish fees, and just sent in electricity bills of his friends with a handwritten name and the actual name tippexed out (I asked for these previously, and also received them and rang him telling him he cant get it for this february). He rang up (not realisign it was me) and OUTRIGHT LIED to me saying someone called <my name> had said it was ok. Completely lost my shit with him. Unbelievable.
Didnt get me this time but jesus, persistant if nothing else.
someone ambled up to the window and claimed to be him to try and get in free.
i've got the day off, and have a medical later so hopefully i will get some money and can replace my bike and that. Watched Blue Valentine yesterday. Bleak. Had a dream last night/this morning in which one of my teeth fell out and there was blood everywhere and it wasn't very nice.
but i've still got a beard
it'll be better than yours, you shit.
Never been before. Ooooo.
Except I'm not even bill Murray. I'm the guy who says hello every day until he gets punched in the face. :(
It was shit and put me in such a bad mood. I went to Waitrose and shook a whole tube of mini eggs into my mouth at the bus stop. Then I went home and cooked us duck breasts with red cabbage and some roasted new potatoes. Then we had sticky toffee putting and CUSTARD for pudding. OH YES <3
Then CG picked me up a leaflet for a new bikram yoga studio in highbury and I got myself a 30 day pass for £35. HAPPY!!!!!!!
love me some duck.
but before that it was shit and TWO people breathed IN MY FACE and I was very ready to throw some punchies
Totally undervalued veg, and glorious to eat. I sometimes do a spice one with cranberry.
sticky toffee pudding
The custard was madagascan vanilla custard from Waitrose. I drank a big gulp from the pod.
sat here doing nowt, at least i'm not hungover today. bonus.
going checking out exhibition venue, then have the second class in my modern art course which was AWESOME last week.
I think the mouse might have moved out, or died in my wardrobe.
'Met office yellow snow alert for tomorrow'.
not sure they've thought that one through.
I'm embarassed for all of you
so this thread title has confused me even more.
Our nightshift guys are getting the chop soon and apparently its just been agreed that I'll take on on-call work to make up the difference. No-ones asked me or mentioned a payrise or anything, its all been decided for me. Can someone give me a better job please?
Sahara for people in the know. We lost Bar Iguana a couple of weeks ago and now this; the way things are going in Reading pretty soon we're gonna end up drinking in TGI Fridays :(
FUCKING HELL I NEED TO MOVE
shall we move to Oxford with cat_race? they have nice bars in Oxford
though now they're branching out it seems: http://www.beatone.co.uk/
If they ever close the After Dark I'm definitely moving
And watched Africa. It was a good night.
I panfried some squid for breakfast. THAT's the kind of week I'm having.
having had gastroenteritis at the start of the week.)
Pie and mash for lunch and I might go for half a pint at the duke.
