Ended up in a roomful of DISers on Friday night, only recognised a handful. Great music, Great night. I like the Camden Head.
the opening post
I feel like I should know what it means

and there being loads of people from 4chan asking "what is OP?"... googled it and there was a game for a while. involved zombies or some shit.
Not too fussed about today though as it's only a two-day week.
And I've already had some pizza.
I'm avoiding reading my work emails. I hate it when you've gone away of a weekend and come back to 300 plus emails.
Going to try and drink 2 litres of water today.
I don't think I had one piece of fruit or vegetable this weekend.
I still feel hungover from Saturday!
Had a good weekend. Missed DiSer gathering in Camden :( so did indoor drinking with gf and her friend.
Saturday went to the Wellcome Centre then a wander down of Charlottle Street for shopping/drinks.
Sunday, helped gf on her stall at Alma Road Street Fair in Kentish Town. Was fun and didn't rain.
Still not fully awake.
Ridiculous hangover Friday. Finished a painting commission Saturday and played Baldurs Gate all of Sunday. Days of my life. 4 new girls started today, and theyre all businessy and stomping around in heels and drinking starbucks coffee. Gonna bully the shit out of them.
One had a go at me because her lunchtime porridge wasnt porridgey enough and I apologised for the microwave not beign very good
and replacing it with a jar of Nescafe.
It might kick off
to the coffee machine.
everyone: don't have weddings on sundays.
it was a guy in the office's wedding and i got fucked up.
interesting side bar: the new Daft Punk song was the biggest hit on the dancefloor all night.
Got a ham and cornichon sandwich today though
It's only 2 hour flight :( I really wanna be normal about flying
I took Valium just to go to Dublin and had to be awoken by the attendants. Just try and stay calm.
I've been given 14 2mg (one the night before and one on the day). Will that knock me out?
Fuck off, Monday.
in too much pain and tiredness to fully enjoy camden head, but i did enjoy Hard-Fi. nice to chat to guyhousername for the first time in a couple years too, and there was a beardy non-DiSer who i thought was trying to chat me up but actually wasn't.
stayed at adybongo's flat friday night which might be the nicest place i've ever stayed. then we had a well good breakfast then my mate gave me a free pint at the bar she worked at.
made music yesterday and sent loads of emails relating to life and label stuff.
Did I interact with you at any point? (curly mess with glasses)
i was just talking to those two for most of the night as i couldn't really do more than stand still and sway so i was out of place in the dancing circle.
Can't believe I was unknowingly boogying near internet funnyman Jordan_229_2.
is there one on the same night in July? i'm down again for the Remedy night at Tooting.
i was stood chatting with adybongo. you had donuts when you were talking to him so its understandable.
Oh yea, me and my mate Sarah found a load of doughnuts on the street and gave them out to everyone. I remember now!
I can't believe I still didn't see you.
if i go again i'll say hello.
with a good mate who I haven't seen in 6 years. Will probably end up fancying her again.
Been to those for the last couple of proper shows, it's great to see them develop from the early stages.
Watched The White Queen in bed
Going to mooch in town later
Living the dream.
Could literally cry with happiness right now.
I think I might be ill.
I hate that Monday morning thing where everyone talk about what they did. If you don't get your headphones on in time you have to join in. High flying birds...AKA..what a life.
oh chintzy i'm so in love
Have you been chatting to her?
she is playing a festival i'm going to in a few weeks so i'm just going to wait til then and hold up a massive flag saying 'Dinner?'
(not that being in love with MITS would be laughable, don't mean to cause offence)
Me band are playing.
Had the Monday and Tuesday off for no reason really, just couldn't be arsed with a two day week.
Gonna listen to music all day, only moving for toilet and food breaks.
week full of potential and i feel like shite. fuckfuck
completely ignoring the big pile that i've been making on Anna's desk next to me all week that I can make a point of not reading. I think he's a massive sexist. Is DarwinDude around? Do you think she'll come into the office to have a chat with him for me? I think he wouldn't be able to look her in the eye and would get all frightened
struggling big time.
Also worrying massively about my degu as he has a bad eye and if the antibiotics don't work it could end up very serious.
Then back home, then up at 5 to go to Birmingham on Thursday morning.
This week can get tae absolute FUCK.
Oh what fun. Just about to wend my merry way upstairs to bed: I went to rinse out my tea cup and heard the unmistakeable sound of rushing water hitting the inside of the cupboard door by my feet. Opened the door and was sprayed in the chops by a jet of cold water. To make matters worse, the stop-tap is in the same cupboard but right in the corner so I had to endure a being hosed down whilst I shut it off. Carnage. I was also wearing my glasses which must have added to the comedic effect. Thank God I live on my own.
I actually had my bow tie undone and slung casually round my collar by that point in the evening
Sounds like you were lucky you saw it when you did.
I would have been ankle deep in water if it had happened while I was out. Literally
I had a hockey tournament over the weekend, playing six matches in the group stage on Saturday, and then one match in the knockout stage on Sunday.
I can't really move this morning without wincing.
Exit Calm were good on Friday, and it was nice to catch up with Jordan there. Sorry I couldn't make it out to HI afterwards, but I had a very early start the next day.
how did you perform overall?
To be fair though, it was great to be playing against current and former internationals and lots of premier league players.
We were the fan favourites - the Tahiti of the tournament.
They've called the poor bastard Elijah but I'm excited to meet him.
Don't turn him into a Social DiSer before while he's a babe in arms.
today is going to be a good day.
But utterly fucking focussed and determined.
i are excite
Not going till Thursday though (Bastard Coach tickets), so got three days at work.
It's my birthday tomorrow, but my holiday situation is so dire I have to work it in order to be able to go to Glastonbury- ultimate sadness...
I really shouldn't moan about that- I swear im not!!
latey involving cindy lauper, bryan adams and the fall records x cider.
saturday was a brilliantly fun time playing a show in bury and saw world war z yesterday which was fine.
only an hour and a half in and i'm already set to start removing throats at work. christ this is a waste of time sometimes.
Literally cannot be fucked with work this week. Boss is being a colossal bellend and I'm being pushed closer and closer to the edge. Might have to stick crudelyphotoshoppedroom.jpeg on my CV - I'm getting desperate!
Semi-booked a holiday yesterday too. Well, booked a flight from Krakow to Gothenburg for £19 each! Will work in the details later. Probably.
Get me to Glastonbury now please.
Will no doubt be asking for sightseeing advice/wza linking me to old threads a bit closer to the time.
I love Krakow. Favourite city probably.
Have time booked off from the 20th so need to find a flight from [anywhere in the UK] to [anywhere within 9 days proximity to Krakow]. Contemplating just sticking to Poland but REALLY want to go to Bled. Hmmm.
Much more picturesque IMO, but a bit in the middle of nowhere. You could fly to Trieste or Ljubljana?
In Krakow I recommend hanging out in the bars in the Jewish quarter and renting a bike and cycling up to here: http://www.kopieckosciuszki.pl/ oh and the Salt Mines (and Auschwitz).
Gonna be on a mega-budget as heading to Oslo and Stockholm after Gothenburg so might just fly to the cheapest place we can find and live like paupers. Scandinavia is so expensive :(
Kind of happier and unhappier now.
Did best in all the non-language modules (history, film, politics), but would have liked at least one first from them.
Really confused at how badly I did in the translation exam - the seen translations made up 60 marks and there's no way I could reasonably have lost as many marks there as I did. Unseen was a mess, admittedly, but I would have expected a higher mark even if I got 0 on that question. The marking for this paper seems pretty damn arbitrary.
Was hoping that my roleplay meltdown might have been forgiven a little bit because the language teachers are fairly nice. Ahahahahahaha, no. I would have got two points higher overall if it wasn't for that mess, and would have been actually happy with my result. Although relieved it was my only 2:2. What on earth was I thinking when I signed up for a degree with a speaking and listening component. Insanity.
palming some of their work off on me with:
"I'm off to Glasters Thursday :)"
Bring on the cider YUMZO!!!
this kind of person.
Woke up and the kitchen was being cleaned so it's 2pm and I'm having brunch.
