So tired send help
Good few days. Drank, met different people I dont see much (if ever), saw an argument outside a rock pub place which is still funny 3 days later.
Sounds like a solid weekend. Was the rock pub argument a fight or a bedwetter special? Either way I could do with being cheered up. Regale me.
Just a young LAD smashed arguing about beating up bouncers then his mates were like "get to greggs mate, ya need a greggs down ya. Sort yourself out with a greggs". Like greggs is the North East equivalent of sedation
Those corn beef pasties - 2 of them and I'm barely walking let alone fighting
How is this a thing?!
Two for 85p in the bakery opposite the 24-hour Spar in Aberystwyth. Perfect for the long drive home.
they're alright, think they were around long time before the 'steak bake'
Right now I have to get up at quarter past twat to even have a hope of being in on time, and sure enough even though I took an earlier train than I usually do I'm still crazy late. Thanks southeastern trains: you're the worst.
did you listen to my DiS podcast yet?
IF NOT WHY NOT?
Also, really bored of it being sub-zero now - about 75 days in a row
cosy wrapped up tight
Got to bed at 10.30am yesterday after being out all night. Our train broke down on the way back and we were turfed out, everyone on the train hadn't been to bed yet pretty much and there was some BANTER and before you knew it, some punches were thrown and then the police appeared. Nearly got myself accidentally involved when one of the thugs asked us WE DIDN'T START IT DID WE and so I just pointed out that it didn't matter because he was being sweary and rude and he did punch a dude repeatedly.
Anyway, yeah, pretty awful sleep deficit tbh. Saturday night / Sunday morn was fun though, a DJ mixed BORN SLIPPY into No Good by the Prodigy in between all these techno numbers and it was amazing.
Train station brawling is definitely on a list of things I will go out of my way to avoid every day.
I only slept for a couple of hours yesterday too. And I barely get 7 hours on a normal day anyway. Really need to sort it out.
Delivering a presentation in an hour's time, have written the sketchiest notes for it.
Realised I'm going to be out every night (not 'out out', just doing stuff) for the next 5 nights. Might start sleeping in the day.
I used to not sleep for about 48 hours at a time and then sleep for a whole day to get my energy back. Kind of miss that you know.
I just need a couple of days completely off, with no work to do/committments to meet. But then again don't we all.
ended up having a go at a supervisor because she asked me the same question 3 times. no biggie, but I still feel such an idiot.
they found it quite funny but I apologised anyway. I did a really scrappy presentation in which I knew what I wanted to say but couldn't get my point across. She asked me the same question 3 times in a row in the exact same words, and I ended up saying 'FOR GOD'S SAKE I've just answered that'.
Might send an email to apologise.
the water cooler water tastes funny.
especially given I only had 6 hours sleep last night, if that.
I have spent the best part of the weekend in bed. It's been lovely.
Magazine - Real Life
Tunng - Good Arrows
New Order - Brotherhood
Joy Division - Closer
Tom Tom Club - S/T
The Dead Boys - Young, Loud and Snotty
actually great choices. New Order in particular
they're one of many bands who've been namechecked by so many of my favourite bands yet it's taken me this long to actually listen ot them.
WHAT IS THE POINT IN EVEN WAKING UP AT ALL
I hope they don't expect me to walk in in the next ten minutes because I am actually in bed breathing heavily with tissue all around me. Cone get me boys.
Except to briefly pop out for food on Saturday, and to demolish the opposition in the pub quiz on Sunday.
We got 55 out of 60, and I gave away the prize (beer tokens) to the runners up because i) I accrue them faster than I can use them, and ii) it was an American-themed quiz and my team is one third Yank.
I've forgotten how to do my job since Friday.
went for a run and it dislodged a lot of mucuus which was grand
need a poo
i watched the superbowl.
please stop fucking, or I'll come round and fuck you
really don't want that to become a thing
if it makes you feel any better I found it really funny.
never been more proud
One punch right to the back of the head and he was down. Fell off his scooter. Little bastard. He looked a little young to be your boss though, that was a surprise.
everything up to connection is a literal nightmare though. They made three accounts for me and took 12 months of payment out three times. Cool.
cheapest isn't definitely the way i want to go mind, as long as the speeds are good
quick and never cuts out at least.
have a facebook/twitter feed full of people who have expressed 0% interest in american football throughout their lifes yet stayed up last night to watch the superbowl?
cant understand it
Sesame reason my mate Tom who doesn't give a shit about football loves the World Cup.
Busy weekend. Had a nice roast dinner yesterday though.
had a bit of bad family-related news yesterday (no-one's dying or anything, but still not good news) so kind of thinking 'why bother with anything' today :(
today is a day to nip out at lunch, buy an egg and bacon sandwich, find a bench and take the weight off for a while.
Hope you're alright.
Nice sentiment though :)
family worries make my blood run cold. Hope you're ok pal x
My toe really hurts though and a girl told me she doesn't want a relationship even though the thought hadn't even crossed my mind yet before changing her mind this morning and telling me she would quite actually like one after all. I don't want one though so nuts to her.
I'll check it out next time I'm in Philly.
Ball is very much in your court.
Ity was fabuous. I only put clothes on on saturday for 5 mins to run oiut and buy fags and run at midnight. then went out for dinner and superbowl last night and what started as a lovely night went a bit dark, and I've never been more sure of the fact that getting the fuck out of this city, cutrting some ties, putting a backpack on and esdaping from life for a while is what I need. I ought to feel lighter than I do, but I don't.
In better news, a complete mickey mouse law firm want me to join their partnership. Isn't that tremendous? (the naswer is No, for so many reasons.)
I want to go back to bed and hide.
Any word from Boss Dicknballs on how long you can stay until?
Also, I bought rum. I did not RUN in my ridiculous get-up of skater-dress, over the knee socks and slipper-boots that the guys at the 24 hour booze/ under-the-counter israeli fag shop were treated to.
NOt a word from the big guy. I reckon I have a month left in me tops. If he wants me to stay longer he'll have to pay me a lot of money. I think he knows this and so he'll move all my deadlines forward to get two months of work out of me in the next 3 weeks and then tell me we're done.
I'm off next week all week. THis is very exciting, ut also worrying. It's the kind of place where people are scared totake holidays because it has been known for folk to come back from hols to find their desk's been cleared. It's what happens when you've got your entire staff workingon statutory minimum notice periods.
So I'm slightly nervous about taking the time off now- but I wnat to see my friends and family and go to the Juve game, so PRIORITIES.
Can you come to mayfair at lunch and shoot me in the face please? THANKS.
while i don't want to shoot your face, do you want lunch one day this week?
It was dead good.
or something, don't you?
and the very bad thing that was total dread turned out to be an infection that will go away with anti-biotics. going to watch the superbowl and eat cereal all day and smile at people!
Seriously considering moving to Liverpool. There's a job I could do in Manchester and the commute would be pretty easy. Can one of you make the decision for me?
Live in manchester!
You need to do a list of pros and cons. I'm moving to glasgow, so I'm obviously in the PLEASE MOVE camp, as you'll be closer to me.
All my family are there.
I will make a list.
but if you mover ot manchester you'll be close to work and you'll have ana amazing time, and be close to liverpool and family, but not actually living right on their doorstep.
It's why when I move back I'm going to live in glasgow or edinburgh and not just move back to the parental village. I'll be close to them, but not too close.
Was my leaving drinks on Saturday, had a lot of them. Managed to cut the inside of my lip open by falling off a stage and landing chin first on some furious girl. Slept until 6 yesterday then watched the Superbowl, then slept a bit more and have somehow realigned my sleep pattern. Supposed to be going to watch Django Unchained tonight, so that could be fun.
to live in the shoe. He has just called me to tell me this. I can't beieve I missed it. Never staying in on a saturday ever again.
I moved abroad with a job 3 and a half years ago with a group of about 10 others, and obviously given the circumstances we became a fairly close group . This week it's all gone to shit, the majority made redundant and a couple (including me) handing their notice in. I'm now left working a notice period for a company I hate, in an office full of dicks who are seemingly ecstatic that good friends of mine are out of a job, but I really need the cash to move back to the UK with so have to resist the urge to walk out straight away. The atmosphere is horrendous. The people who got made redundant are off work and getting drunk all the time. I'd quite like to join them. I can't even begin to think of shipping all my shit back to the UK and finding somewhere to live, all of which I have to do in the next few weeks. Rubbish.
What country are you in? Can't you get another job there somehow?
It was a hellish commute to work. Although we've just moved offices to Soho after being in the depths of nowhere for three months.
Weekend? 3/10. The three for going to a Morrissey night on Saturday. Although I think it made me far more depressed on the bus home.
and actually had to use them, I always thought being on crutches would be a bit of a laugh, you know like when you borrow someone's and go a few paces up and down in the living room going 'Wahay!' It is definitely not.
It's hard work. And it's like having a dog on public transport - people talking to you when you just want to be left alone in the morning.
It all started when the asked me to put a table up there and there was, at long last, no space to put it. It's quite a big space and theres so much up there that its going to be a total nightmare if they don't sort it before they move house. So I sweated my arse off and got covered with cobwebs getting it sorted. Feels great now that the situation now appears to be manageable.
Oh and on a related heads up: there's going to be loads of cool shit on freecycle in the south east london area coming soon!
near Brixton? we could do with some bits and bobs
any decent put up beds?
Friday night had dinner with Meowington, and then danced until the early hours. Saturday got a tattoo. Sunday met a friend for a Roast.
I love it.
if you don't mind me asking where did you go to have it done?
I think its monday morning blues mixed with tireness and a bit of weirdness.
I need something to cheer me up but the only thing I have to do is go buy deodorant wipes...yay.
I've just bought some nail fur. I'll update you later when I make my nails furry.
cant wait to see these. I really want the leather varnish too.
that on the walk to work i saw a dog poo being blown down the street
should be anyway.
Some big guys strutted past and I'm pretty sure he chuckled at me. Cunt.
on friday there was an old man blown over next to the big tower in shieldfield and it took three of us to get him up and battled through the wind to his door
original, not one with yoghurt or chocolate or any shite like that on it
Weekend was pretty excellent.
Today I'm wearing a hat that smells a bit foisty and writing a review of a book which I've not properly made any attempt to read. My life just gets better and better.
properly, not like the time I burst in brandishing a cat in their faces, and they didn't hate me which is good. Or they kept it quiet if they did.
and i thought 'fuck rinsing the cup' because it's fine to do that sometimes okay, shut up. anyway, i was wrong because after making her this lovely tanned colour cup of tea i notice something floating about it in. she had only gone and gobbed in the cup hadn't she.
I really needed you in the rightful indignation/ slovenly pizza drubbers thread.
better sort itself oot on tha morra else i'll be gheeing me uncle buzzcocks a call
