Got up at 0700hrs for it, no way it's turning up before 1630 now.
Sneezed so hard this morning the glands under my jaw popped round onto the side of my face near the bottom of my ear. It ABSOLUTELY KILLED.
Not trying to outdo you or owt, but I coughed up a little but of blood this morning. It was disgusting.
Yesterday my boss called the computer I use 'Tilly's computer', rather than 'the other computer'.
Oh, he just said 'your pump clips are here' like because I ordered them they're mine. I'm confused.
I really regret giving him my email address now.
Never give out your direct number or email. If youre not a complete moron you will be absolutely bombarded every day for eternity. I still get calls from a position I left 2 1/2 years ago according to my old boss :D
then theyll think youre incompetent and leave you alone
First I exhaust every other avenue, of course, trying to get other people to contact the customer
Just started hurting like a motherfucker yesterday and now typing/moving the mouse is fucking painful. Buggering hell. Least it's sunny outside, though.
which was ok, but i don't know if i would go back to it. also, the traders and builders expansion for carcasonne which i really liked and then the resistance as well, which was ace
Often fancied playing Carcasonne.
I like board games. Ever played Diplomacy?
carcasonne is great. come to my house if you want and then play it
of those players who get lied to and stabbed in the back as part of the gaming experience.
I'll be round later with the Extra Caramel Snickers for a game.
he said about 2 words, which made me wonder what the fuck was point of casting him? He's got more important things to do, possibly.
What did you have on it?
I had my last two crumpets.
I fucking love crumpets. Marry me.
It's still very new and uncertain but I don't want to jeopardise what could be really very special.
It was watery and horrible.
Its M&S watery porridge
Can I eat soup at 9am?
he must be pretty please with the time he's managed to make up today.
that I got chased by an angry group of far-right group members. One tried to stab with me with a trowel. I woke up about 3am and unfollowed/unliked everything even vaguely related to EDL/NF/CxF and went back to sleep. I'm such a wimp.
You know what that means.
but I'm curious.
Your assailant was Cementemental?
There were many *layers* of meaning to your dream?
no real news.
Going to a film quiz tonight though.
Thought I'd need to take some time off but my housemate will be home and he's seeing to it. Sweet.
Have moved into a new place and settling in very nicely, thanks.
but actually had 8 hours sleep :) this week I'm working in an office that overlooks my ex girlfriends office...fun. At lunch im going to pets at home to look at the cute animals..this will be the highlight of my day. this evening I have freelance to do whilst watching the walking dead (just finished season 1)

Manchester Sound: The Massacre
"The frenzy of the 1819 Peterloo Massacre will collide with Manchester's late 80s acid house scene in an immersive theatrical experience, taking the audience deep into the world of underground raves."
Bit apprehensive about how immersive it's going to be. If I have to do anything wacky I'm out.
I thought crap like that only happened in London.
You defo won't have to do anything wacky. Defo.
(it sounds awful and I want to go)
I'm having to describe it in words. It's ridiculous. I feel like one of those idiots off the apprentice.
AND the launch of a play at Royal Exchange that I helped work on a little bit. As well as that there's a really cool city lecture at IABF BUT I've decided to work instead, not sure it was the best decision as the sun's out and I want to be in it at all times.
might do that and just tell everyone to serve themselves
I was up til like half 3 talking to some dickhead. Annoying.
I watched Hot in the City video, though - that cheered me up.
The begining of Hammer & Sickle sounds like Chain Reaction.
^I'm too tired to change that
post Father's Day?
I was away and working and all that!
What can I send to his work?
Nowhere to stay so I just slept in a park.
Supposed to be going on a date tonight. But bleh.
Had to work late last night then got woken up by the local cats having another gang war. I need to get a pet lion or something so they know the area round my flat is not their territory to fight over.
at work. harder than i thought it would be.
Just checking in an' that.
Would someone like to tell the couple we're buying a flat off to hurry the fuck up and find somewhere else to live? Cheers.
Prepare yourself for months of frustration.
Got my feet up & probably going to have a snooze in a bit as it'll be a while yet, at what point should i buy a box of cigars and go to the pub?
And also much noisier than I expected. Constant drilling from roadworks outside and someone was vacuuming the communal hallway outside our flat earlier.
I used to envy the homeworkers at my company but I think it'd drive me insane.
I love staying in bed, dressing gown still on at 3pm. Feel a bit naughty, especially during conference calls.
(I was in and awake but whatever...)
It says to wait 24 hours, but if I go there at 7pm-ish, it should be back, right? It will have been a van delivery. Really could do with having it before tomorrow, but I don't want to get shouted at for coming early :-(
went for a run this morning including a 2 mile stretch along the Tyne. Newcastle looked properly stunning.
My parents' new dog is so awesome. Tried to eat my ipod this morning though.
1313m of climbing in almost freezing conditions. Now drinking a beer in the hotel before deciding if it's a good idea to climb the Hautacam this afternoon #cyclingchat
Unless you don't like your job. In which case: Wooo! You get paid to leave!
pretty bleary. Got offered a job... hmm. Unsure.
Otherwise just practicing for the band's July gigs and Getting Shit Done.
Was there in March, did so so little.
just need to haggle over salary etc. we shall see.
also; go to Goa, i'd love a holiday there.
it has downsides too though. I'll have to think about this a fair bit methinks!
And yep, london gigs, july, then i HOPE scotland in august
Let's try and actually have that drink before you leave, if you leave :D
the headquarters is a yoga retreat ahaha. so wanky. but tempting if the money is right.
And YES we need a drink don't we? If all else fails my band is playing Joeymahone's Trouble at Mill night on July 13th but im around in the evenings before then!
If you're relocating to another country though, make sure you do proper research beforehand (not that I'm suggesting you wouldn't). e.g.
How long have they been around?
To what extent would they sort your relocation?
Search on Linkedin for any ex employees, or Google for other people's past experiences.
Are they privately run or LLC?
I'm sure there's loads of other stuff too, I've never done international relocation myself, but good to get the boring stuff out of the way before getting wrapped up in the romanticism of it all. India's a notoriously difficult country to do business in if you're unfamiliar with it in that way.
Do it. Seriously.
Oh really? I should be going!
and awesome. it'll be the first gig with the new line up so it is going to be a bit like a clown car on fire in terms of execution but should rock suitably medium hard
Ok we'll take this group back and then be back in an hour are you ok to stay here and look after the stuff
So I stayed on the beach while they did that. I built a face out of rocks and then fell asleep on the sand
An ok day
We're like cool
Then was responsible for an awful lot of stock smashing everywhere. My boss didn't say a word to me in the aftermath. I'm going to try and drown myself in the shower when I finally get hone.
