I cleaned my flat last night. Took a long time. But now it's sparkling.
Going to look at sofas this weekend. Any tips?
That's where my sofa's from. I live it. This one:

Last night I went to see Django Unchained and I was sat next to THE MOST ANNOYING COUPLE ever. Firstly they kept kissing. Secondly she'd never seen a Tarantino film before and kept flinching at everything, and thirdly the guy kept on laughing, except his laugh wasn't normal, it was more like HNNNNNNNNNNNGH.
Anyway. Today's my Friday. Off to Gdansk tomorrow. YEAHHHHH.
There was this bunch of pigs behind me when I saw Les Mis the other day that literally didn't stop eating and grunting for the first hour and a half. It was just a constant noise like they were shovelling popcorn into their mouths continuosly until they ran out.
Last night I made Jucy Lucy burgers, they were pretty damned good.
Should I get some Zloty in my lunchbreak? Or just use a cash machine when I get there?
someone also said Next too.
but if anyone else is looking, I'd recommend a trip to the Made.com showroom in Notting Hill as well.
I was going to be helping Scout with her exhibition thing that STARTS TOMORROW but we can't get into the venue today so I'm going to view four flats. Exciting. I'm currently eating porridge in a bid to become sexier #science
She's in work today, we're going to see one or two together on Sat but not with a view to moving in together yeah
We did talking and I said we're not. Anyway, the first one I saw was pretty OK, second one had been taken by the girl who saw it immediately before me and the third was weird, like the agent went "here's the kitchen and lounge area" and i was like, this is just a kitchen with a settee in it
and I don't know if I'm into that
back in work after a 5 and a half day weekend. I saw Toro Y Moi on Tuesday night in London, he was brilliant. Also saw Ulrich Schnauss do an instore gig at Rough Trade Monday night. Not what I was expecting but really good all the same. I have a sore throat and am super tired but it was worth it. Can't life always be like this?
but i'm still trying to work out exactly why I didn't love it.
Work is pretty mental at the minute. Despite it being really busy yesterday I only stayed for an extra hour so I could go to the cinema; my colleague had to stay til midnight, i'm guessing he's going to mention this a lot today.
+ Found a job that is exactly like mine now but much more money that I'm going to apply for over the weekend.
- Think I may have lost my GF's digital camera.
I turned this into a +/-
i5 quad core processor
160gb hard drive
and some other more boring stuff. Obviously it's not sweet in terms of high end PCs but pretty pleased with the specs on a budget.
Just want something that works to be honest.
other digital camera spec
Gonna look at my new room today as well *potential, on a different journey
can't wait till everything is DONE
I got a proper haircut. Looks alright. Didn't get a boner on having my hair washed by a nice lady.
Cried a bit at Trail of Dead selling out in Cambridge in a TINY venue.
downloaded all of freaks and geeks off youtube with that tubebox app this morning...amazing scenes!
need a poo
It was worth being 10 minutes late to work for. Normally I'd try to hold off until work (for obvious reasons) but it's a bit icy today and I didn't want to risk falling over from rushing to do a poo. Then shitting myself.
8/10. Would poo again.
what a way to start the day, cant beat it when your late from a shit, cant understand why employees don't accept it as a valid reason
It's extremely high risk. We're all on one week notice periods (which is unusual to me- my industry is normally 3-6 months.)
I reckon I need 2 mopnths to recruit somebody and do a handover, but I don't want to just resign in 6 weeks and leave them in the shit. SO, I'm going to do it now, and hope that they'll keep me on for 2 months. Big big gamble, but professional pride means I can't do it any other way.
what if they say, OK, you can just leave now? (boss is a bit of a prick like).
I have nEVER done anythign like this before.Is this a midlife crisis/ nervous breakdown? I always imgained they would feel more fun.
(URGH, yes, she said this. This is why I need to leave). 11.30am. SHeeeit.
over an iphone video chat?
Honestly, if you feel in your heart of hearts that this is the right thing then this is the best thing.
Handing in my notice at my last job seemed like a massive weight had been lifted off my shoulders, despite not knowing what I was going to do next.
So I've meailed to say AHM OOT and would like to have a 2 month handover period to ensure a smooth transition. Waiting to see what he says/ whether security come over towards me holding out an empty cardboard box.
Seems a bit gimmicky tbh
It's in the rules, andyvine!
Oh no, what is to become of my TV career? (no more having to run up stairs in fishnet holdups whilst a camera crew follow close suit. best of all, no more orange makeup that makes me look like an oompa loompa <3)
PS meant to ask you- did your old boy give you a row for that photo? :D
to follow you upstairs with a camera while you wear fishnets.
No, he just sulked for a bit. My sister works with him so she was telling me how he was grumbling about it but refused to comment on it coz then his mates would give him more grief :D
Dads. I posted a piuc of my dad and the pugs in Dec, and he was like- ooooh, why have you done that, I',m wearing my reading glasses. Bloody vain for a 73 year old (and doesn't even look mid-50s, the total BABE that he is.)
Theyre installing my phone line.
I want a grey one. I love grey. I'm wearing grey.
My parents bought the do over last night. She really wanted to wee on my bed.
Got nothing to do. Might take up henry rollins advice and buy a tv and six pack.
I'm a tiny bit hungover but I'm going to have vlar for breakfast and go to the rijksmuseum. So everything is good.
But my back is slowly getting better. Had some amazing news this ast week - got into my course. Pretty nerve-wracking as it is a whole new start over degree. Met with a recruiter last night, already have an interview on Friday. All things are looking up. (holding thumbs)
I'm going to be in a class with nerdy kids. It's okay to say I am 25?
Pretty warm though.
Last night I went on what turned out to be a date but I didn't think it was a date.
Going to Madrid tomorrow. Forecast looks shit.
How did it turn out to be a date then? Are you on holiday just now? I want to still be in bed. I'm still suffering from Tuesday night's antics.
Today's shaping up to be my first pre-12pm rise.
What did you get up to on Tuesday?
Got quite into the wine we were having and decided we didn't really want the night to end, so it ended up being a total session back at my flat. My poor neighbours. On a tuesday night as well.
Decided to make the next one for 3pm next week, really need to remember that I'm unemployed and stop acting like I still need to do everything before 9am.
Anyway, job interview tomorrow FINALLY can't fucking wait. Certain I'm going to fucking nail it.
Gonna watch Africa now and try and forget about the dentist.
This is total B.S.
Last night we had this for dinner. Karela. Apparently there are ways for it to not taste like the most evil thing on the planet, buts we didn't manage to get it like that, it was AWFUL. Looks like snozcumber though.
I got crumbs and cream everywhere but it was worth it
I think it's about time I got off my arse, really. I look like a podgy scarecrow.
Rang the bank to see if they had any more information other than the vague 'Transfer - Paypal' that I've got on my statement and they don't.
Rang PayPal to report it and they have no idea either, so I have to email them a bank statement and they'll look into it. Will take a couple of weeks apparently.
If I pay on my card in a supermarket, the transaction comes up as, for example, 'Asda Superstore 4676'. Why can't Paypal stick the account email address on there or something? How much easier would it be to sort these things out if when I glanced at my statement it said 'Paypal firstname.lastname@example.org'.
2. boss has been glaring over, but when I try to go over to talk to him, he runs away
OH FUCKING MARVELOUS.
Fuck this, I'm going for dinner.
computer is going out the window in a minute
My legs ache if I walk anywhere and my temperature is all over the shop. If I try to concentrate on anything for more than a few minutes I get a headache.
