Woke up to find I got an 84 on an economics essay I wrote. That was nice.
What up wit' you?
Really tired today.
Nothing else to report.
Though they said they'd let all candidates know their decision by the end of yesterday and I've heard nothing. I don't think it bodes well.
I went for the early train and I got there ten minutes early. And then it arrived 10 minutes (at the same time as the late train would have) which was nice as it meant that the bus that I connect to was quiet. That's day two of standing at a bus stop next to a Greggs and I've not bought anything. Any bets to as how long I'll be able to hold out?
I'm not exactly Mr Balanced And Healthy Diet but, jeez, Greggs? Ick.
But the ones from Gregg's are just awful
I don't pretend they are anything but on the go snacks mind.
what was the topic?
I'm starting interval training today so that's going to be unpleasant. Also meeting my ex-girlfriend who only became my ex 'cause she moved to Japan so that'll be a bit sad probably.
i usually suck at economics but i'm getting on pretty well with this module.
that does sound like a sad day. remember, she left you. her loss. yeah? YEAH!
Chilled last night, had a nic bath, watched that zombie thing that was on BBC3 on iplayer. That was good. Then watched the bus that could never slow down.
All geared up for the day. For the next 20 minutes at least.
i totally missed that thread. thanks! i've got a long day ahead of me in the library, this will work well for breaks :)
Was very tired when my alarm went off this morning, so had one of those mornings where I stayed in bed til quarter to 8, had a quick wash, brushed my teeth, got changed and was in the car for 8 o clock. Lovely, lovely lie-in.
Got another afternoon of dissertations being handed in so should have something to do for part of the day at least. Will be quite busy too, as only 12 of the 64 bothered to hand them in yesterday.
wel dun on yr esay x
Im in a good mood.
Woke up in my new flat which has heating that actually works, and doors that don't thump in the night. Great night's sleep, cut my commute in half. Practically whistled on the way into work :)
It's a fucking excellent morning. And now I'm listening to Soley so everything is even better
My heating got sorted out a few days ago. This morning my brain couldn't quite process that it was uncomfortably warm in my flat when I woke up.
Epimer is evolving!
Epimer became Warm.
Monster is confused!
It still feels like a massive luxury and I'll never take it for granted.
I thought I was hallucinating when I looked outside and it was snowing. I feel really fuzzy.
Something went wrong with the Hamsters so we had to stuff mice instead. I get to go back for my hamster class another time so my class last night was free!
Yeah, i know.
amazing - possibly. A bit scary - definitely.
I'm sure that's a lovely job you've done, but its a horrible looking animal. I do like its zombie pose though.
I butchered it quite a lot.
ITS MY FIRST TRY.
Work your way up to a horse or something?
Is this a thing for fun or do you want a job as a taxidermist?
You pay per class and can do them whenever you like. The biggest animal they go up to is a fox I think.
Its just for fun. I don't think I'll ever become a taxidermist. I just want loads of dead stuffed animals in my flat.
Can you take your own animal? Like if your dog died or something?
as I'd like to get my cat stuffed when it dies. I guess you'd have to book in a private class with the guy to do it properly.
had no idea it was a taxidermy thing
that album is ten years old
Missed the train so had to sneak into work. Someone left something on my desk before I got in though so it was definitely noted that I was late. Currently waiting for an opportune moment to sneak to the kitchen and get a tea without running into anyone important.
the day after cooking with the aforementioned bulbous plant? Can't stop sniffing them.
Bubblin' from the left, woman trouble.
Wondered if the subject matter would turn up in my dreams as I switched the Xbox off, but it was all My Little Pony and Care Bears as per usual.
Am at work, waiting to hear if my gf has got a job or not. Need to think about a celebratory/consolatory activity for this evening depending on the outcome.
She wins either way.
That's good, very good.
You're good etc
there's probably the best coffee in Brighton five minutes away from my office. I used to have one only rarely cos it would set off my armpits sweating. But now that's a thing of the past I can enjoy coffee and my pits stay dry.
Oh yeah there's a kid in the office; noone knows who he is but we suspect he may belong to one of the Consultants from down the corridor. He is reading a Kindle.
Got a horribly sore neck and back.
Struggling to see the TV.
I'm feel like an old person.
is that progress??
is that progress?
because I have the worst cold evvveerrr, watched the Girls finale and The Good Wife, gonna try and power through so I can see DIVORCE tonight.
We all had to evacuate to the civic centre. Mega drama.
It smells faintly of wee. Have I done a wee in my own tea? I'm so tired I can't be sure.
You didn't wee in your tea.
That's all I'm saying.
Good to know I've got someone looking out for me.
Glad it gives you comfort.
I have a plan! An actual plan that doesn't involve staying in this dump!
My band has new stuff to listen to / buy. Go look:
Anal Beard isn't my band. It's a split with my band, The Astronauts. Anal Beard are great though!
a month in rent. We saw two properties in Bloomsbury today.
My budget is £700. I feel bad but at the same time she wants me to live with her so I don't feel that bad.
excluding bills and everything. I feel really bad so I've suggested getting somewhere with one of the rooms being an en suite so I can restore a little decency.
even if I could afford £2,000 in rent, I don't think I would. Best of luck finding a place though.
If that's what she wants. We just made an offer...my god they want 3 months rent in advance. What the fuck?! Different world to the one I'm used to...
I've got pretty short legs. I'm gonna look like a FUCKING DICK.
That's it. That's the news for today. Me looking like a dick. Fuck off everyone.
and it turns out I have TWO copies of Enter the Matrix for ps2. I don't think I've ever played it. I don't think I have ever wanted to.
I remember the box art basically went for the angle of "but you can run up walls!"
Someone take a copy, please. I can't be 'two copies of enter the matrix girl' for much longer.
/I hear she also has the original and editors cut of Blade Runner in separate boxes
/oh my god that's HOT
Then told "Three of my girlfriends are coming along"
Hmm... She thinks I'm gay doesn't she.
A sexual deviant/lothario who would be too much for her to handle alone...
maybe SHE'S gay. And polygamous.
Need to get some tshirts that aren't slightly too tight, maybe some new shorts. And a hat.
Band practice later. Going to attempt to finish our new song, working title- "The Dawn of Crisps".
