Morning! Not got much to report really. Getting the bus in early today (7.45).
I'm at work because some people want to do some filming. They haven't paid yet and I don't know how to ask them. I might sneak out and get some breakfast.
I'm not going to go and get ant breakfast.
you've got killer bone structure tho mate
go have a lie down
Woke up with a head full of ideas, put on Cut Copy's Zonoscope and have written nearly a 1000 words before re-boiling the kettle. Just having a coffee and deleting some spam.
Big day today, finally revealing Ed Harcourt's beer - hoping to have a little surprise for DiSsers in a few cities who like to supper an ale, srsly.
You probably wouldn't have heard of them.
(this is directed at anyone)
cos I was on the tube the other day and at Camden a load of teenage girls got on with posters and t-shirts etc.
Best bit was two girls sat next to me talking about ''kids in the mosh pit'' and they were only about 16/17. Ah to be young.
I hope you didn't skip it with listening to Daft Punk and asking Facebook what they were doing while they weren't listening to Daft Punk
I ate out your mum...?
I didn't get to sleep till three after getting back from Brighton, where we beat them 2-0. Totally shattered but totally worth it.
I bet its great
That's all I've got today.
3. Coach tickets
I wasnt gonna bother telling you but I'm really happy about the bus I get. Normally I have to walk >10 minutes to the bus stop but every morning it 07.45 it starts at just a stones throw from my house, in a lovely area of Manchester.
Unless you are a major fan of casualty or something
An ultrasound of my heart taken from inside my chest - a vascular EKO i think it's called
It involved pushing a remote control snake into my mout and down through my chest
I was expecting it to be a widdly little think but it was the thickness of a medium sized bike lock
Also, it meant that the previous 8 hours I was nil by mouth - not even water, despite a 40 degree temperature which meant that the nurse woke me at 4am to stick paracetamol up my poopchute
By the way did I say that the vascular EKO took a whole fucking hour ?
hope they stop probing you/find out what's happened soon :(
That's horrible. If we ever meet I will buy you a well deserved pint.
Are you allowed to drink now?
Drink water now (in reply to you not being able to drink). Not beer.
I was still nil by mouth for an hour after because of the local anaesthetic in my throat but now I'm good
This probably won't be of much comfort, but hopefully these tests will help to prevent any of this happening again.
thing is that all these tests so far - including the one today - have shown nothing wrong - which is good news
the pulmonary septic emboli I have in the muscle between my lungs & heart don't seem to have actually damaged either organ
and the whole infection seems to stem from the most mundane of sources; a cracked molar that I got 3 weeks ago when biting down on a crouton in a supermarket bought caesar salad while sat in my studio putting together the DiS mixtape no.4 :/
seems some plaque decided to descend into my chest cavity and have a knullfest (look it up) that nearly killed me
next on the list - pulling teeth!
what am I talking about
I means this
PS Thanks for tricking me into googling knullfest at work.
you pronounce the k though
you'll need to know that when you start using it
I may be scared to do anything ever again. On the plus side, you can probably make £2,000 selling your story to a real life magazine - NEARLY KILLED... BY A CROUTON.
rather ridiculous isn't it
i'd've jumped out a window by now
i mean, hope they're not messing with you for too much longer!
maybe (hopefully) earlier
I had to fall down the stairs dramatically.
Fucking haunting. GWS, B_I_T_T
so whilst the name is clever, I can't do it marckee xx
The poor thing would have that name into the 22nd century.
Got a meeting dahn sarf later so I'm working from home this morning, which meant about an hour extra in bed, so that was good. Looking forward to Homes Under the Hammer.
Nice and sunny at the moment but going to piss down later and never stop judging by the weather forecasts. That will be a shit drive then. Watching Arsenal and Wigan tonight on the box. That is all.
then i woke up wide awake and didnt sleep again 'til about 4am.
Alarm on for 7.30am :(
Feel loads better after a shower though.
After work today I have to chaperone my sister to the O2 Arena while she watches that Big Reunion thing with 5ive and other people, while I sit in the bar and drink and read.
Better take headphones.
There's only four of them now. Oops.
(and an accidental "this" because I didn't have the spatial awareness to click reply properly)
I don't want to be in work.
Today's (extremely) minor annoyance: my colleague's habit of asking what date it is. I do not have access to privileged information in that regard. I check on my phone or my computer, the same things she has in front of her. But it's impossible to point that out without being a dick, so I'll have a little cry here instead.
But at least I haven't had a bike lock rammed down my throat or a pill shoved up my arse this morning. Christ.
Ive given in to having to move home. Theres no jobs (I can get in a month at least AND pay rent) and no flats where Id want to live I can afford. I guess that means Ill learn to drive and save up money for a deposit on a house as Ill be rent free. Still depressing though.
Bad boi 4 lyf
Its a massive relief. The place is going to shit over the next 6 months and I dont want to be here when it does.
Trying to figure out how to do a GoToMeeting with people in New York and Estonia. If anyone has experience of this then please holla.
Nothing really to report here. Don't know why I'm replying...
so to distract attention away from it I pissed myself.
She was pretty great.
Hope the sun comes out because I want to go and sit on the grass outside SamAlex for a long time and not go back to fucking work.
Probably won't happen and will leave me feeling angry. Other than that I'm knackered and covered in bruises and cuts.
turns out most of the bosses are out in meetings here there and everywhere, so I might actually get off on time today actually. Result.
Also my boss has gone away leaving me in charge of everything and I have loads to do yet here I am on DiS.
LEARN TO RIDE. (safety wink)
Boss told us we could come in an hour late, which was actually a god send. Still feel a bit wobbly though.
halfway through my degree guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!
now i am so hungover
i tried to get some shifts for work for the rest of this week but they didn't have any, so now i have four whole days with absolutely nothing planned and no money i can spend. pretty great. might go on some bus adventures.
they were great, but I was drunker than I realised (watched football before) and was a dickhead when I got home, so yeah, that.
My mum is coming round tonight though so that's nice.
Going to buy boots and eat my French chocolate.
then i watched a few episodes of 30 Rock.
Can't wait, feeling a bit low (about DiS) this week and I've not been anywhere except work and home for longer than I can remember so it's going to be pretty exciting!
I'm eating too much food when I'm work, working in a cafe is the worst/best. Can someone go to where I work and hide the following items:
giant box of Twirls
all the halloumi
been all but living in the library for two weeks eating nothing but sandwiches (apart from today, today I've eaten only fruit)
before that it was probably the first week of December. Eugh.
Hardly slept a fucking wink last night, too many thoughts whizzing about in my head, most of them make me sad!
I am wearing my brand new suit today that i got for my bday which i am very happy about!
maybe it's cause someone else made it.
been sat with my headphones on for ages and just now noticed there's two fire trucks outside going into the house next door.
i'm really crap at it
AH HATE DRIVING
