I've got a cold but I've also got YYYs tix so fuck my cold
Started Game of Thrones last night. Last full day of office work today.
It's so fucking good
as its not Jon Snow.
If you can find the picture of him with his top off in episode 1, i'll love you forever.
- national rail also apparently loves FUCKING ME.
just got a letter from them saying they're starting to electrify the line behind my flat and apparently this work HAS TO be done on Saturday nights/Sunday mornings so I shouldn't expect to get any sleep on weekends in February and March.
it seems National Rail hate us both
you're not getting details ;)
but yes. email today.
(please the details)
they haven't actually had sex.
I AM having sex?
I wouldn't count on it though.
hopefully Jon Spencer and Real Estate fall on the same day.
My Tuesday is alright. Need to buy some new lights for my bike though.
I'm not usually cool enough to know ATP lineups though so I'll prob wait and then not get tix. This isn't the one at Butlins or whatever is it either? I want to go to Butlins
Its at Alexandra Palace in that there London. Its a 2 dayer. The second day being Grizzly Bear.
and my second appointment has called in sick.
It's always the second one, isn't it?
Good work by LAS to get a paramedic there before I'd finished calling for an ambulance.
Are you feeling ok?
think the driver was in shock, mum was surprisingly proactive and sensible. Left after the paramedic arrived as there wasn't any point in crowding things - plenty of other people around.
Either the Air Ambulance was involved and it was worse than I thought, or there was a second accident within half an hour.
smashed his nose open, really grim. nothing like a kid getting run over though.
Amour + finishing All The Pretty Horses + post-Gdansk comedown / hangover + stupid work emails = one unhappy platicniki.
anything you strongly suggest i do? i've read the usual suggestions but i was wondering how the weather affects what's open etc. i'm excited.
My feet were FREEZING because it was minus 10 and I'd only taken Vans. I don't think the weather caused anything to be shut, but I couldn't be outside for more than 30 minutes at a time.
Go and have a look at the biggest brick-built church in Europe. If you've not booked anywhere to stay, try Gotyk House - lovely little B&B right in the centre of the Old Town. Drink in No To Cyk (4 zloty beers, which is like 80p), Flisak '86 (amazing underground bar with good music), Brovarnia (a microbrewery offering 3 different beers, all great), Degustatornia Dom Piwa (great pub featuring a ridiculous choice of beers with a very friendly barman), and Cafe Kamienica (cosy cafe bar).
You *must* get a train to Sopot and walk along the pier and then have drinks in Jozef K near the station. As you can tell mostly I drank everything cos it was simply too cold to be out and about.
loads of good things i've noted down here. i'll be bringing boots and snow socks then! and i'm more than okay with employing the beer blanket method. some nice drinking holes by the looks of it. thanks again for this x
Just saying, apropos of nothing.
who is a member of the EDL
Got twatting soaked in the process. Also turns out the rest of the office has decided not to bother coming in because (seriously) the car park is being resurfaced. Our office is pretty central and I can see another car park from here.
Want to go home but a) it's still raining and b) now I'm here it's an opportunity to apply for new jobs in peace.
I feel as though I might need another holiday before that though. Somewhere in June maybe, I'll need one after working 55 hours a week for the next 3 and a half months...
Going to the gym shortly. Not much else planned.
It makes them better
south west trains were fucked this morning and i have a tremendous cough.....also having to assist some grandpa who has joined our team with tiresome Office based PC queries
Watched the Freaks and Geeks episode with the drumming audition thanks to the slow trip to work mind, lifted the spirits somewhat
Normally wouldn't care but I'm going straight on to a semi-posh (heh, semi) dinner and I'd rather not look bedraggled. Then a comedy gig that doesn't start till 11.
Today is sort of my Friday but not really. I could really get used to four day weeks.
and I'm convinced I've caught a lurage from my flight back yesterday (which was bumpy and awful with high winds and wake turbulence a-go-go.)
Starting to panic about what I'm going to do for a job when I inevitably just walk out of here in a week or two (cannot thole it much longer.) I MISS MY DOGS.
I think my lovely friend Tom is coming to stay with me tonight for a few nights, which will be nice. He has recently had his heart broken, so we can be miserable together about life (i.e. drink rum and go out all the time.)
Nearly cried. Had a really gritty conversation about paving slabs with the guy who did it. Made him some tea and said he thought Id be a "bawbag he dinna mek tay"
short week again this week, had yesterday off. watched Looper, was good, did as Bruce Willis told me and didn't think about it too much. my life's so fucking dull at the moment. Until May, then have some money. and get to see PAWS & Hookworms at an all dayer in York, which'll be nice.
Bruce Willisy squinting was very impressive.
you you should go and see them at one point. I've been wanting to see them since the EP came out, loads of opportunities, but for some reason never have. WELL looking forward to it.
I went to college with him. Hes a dude.Used to be in a band called hit for six and got me into lots of good music. Love MattJ.
i told someone to go and see them when they supporting plank anyway.
Think it was me. TY cb x
The photo of the monkey being sent up to space was vile.
Even his mouth was turned down like he was upset.
Not every day you get to be an astronaut monkey
Think of it that way
and had to be in the office early this morning for a meeting with my tutors
while swotting up for the meeting doing some last minute stuff one of them came in with someone else to look around the office so i had to hide some of my notes away
i'm sure it'll be fine
I have one spare and I don't want to make a thread unless I have to.
to go to the show
I smell great today.
But you can change your pants.
Tell him about the rocks you've dug up and you could be holding hands by tonight
I wish I could change the past
get on it
Thanks for the life advice x
I'm just waiting for the crushingly inevitable.
I had a massive lie in, went for a run, about to make pancakes (two weeks early, fuck you calendar) and then go to the library and learn some shit.
starting to wish every day was about 14 hours long. 24 is way too many
I might go and kick a wall, have a fag and a little cry.
I'm feeling a bit better. I've decided I'm not going to allow myself to get frustated by how long it's going to take to sort out a job for me in Scotland. I'm going to try to get out of this current job in the next 1-2 weeks before I have a nervous breakdown and I'm going to get some bar work so I have structure to my life and not having to rely on savings. My friend arrives tonight to stay with me for a bit and he's taking me out to his mate's bar to get shitfaced and eat mexican food and I think I can live with the thought of sitting at a bar with my soul-destroyed friend, being a soul-destroyed pair and drinking so much rum that we slide off the stools. Except he's a bourbon ambassador for a big brand and fuck, we'll probably need to drink that and I can't drink bourbon (cocodalol to provide citatoin if needed).
I want to stay in tonight. I'm sad again.
I don't think I should try to stop smoking again until my life is less stressful.
I'm sick and just want to go to bed
