not a massive one though
Have a bacon roll and a cup of tea.
plus one of my housing options has fallen through and i'm moving out next month. so nothing major. a sausage cob is on the cards.
(i don't actually know what this means but i think I heard someone say it once.)
but good luck!
How's oxford going?
and sarah goes to pretoria on saturday! what will i do?! i'll sit and play video games, that's what i'll do!
No, sod that. Wait for the rain to go off and then go punting. or get drunk. Or go for a cycle round the dreaming spires <3
(i'll only be there for an hour outside of the course i'm going to. sshhhh)
but don't worry, it's early, nobody will see and if we just stop responding to this thread and you make 7 or 8 'cheese- not actually a thing' type threads, then this one will fall off th epage soon.
let's go with, it's a game about defending your city walls from naked men with hardons who want to get into the city to fuck your wife. i'll set it in either chester or florence (undecided). i don't really want it to be a tower defence game though so i'll have to have a little think about mechanics
the game is about him being unable to accept love
Lol lol lol
Fucking the fuck off at quarter to fucking four today though, so I'll tolerate it. Begrudgingly.
My EA (we;re nbot allowed to call them PAs anymore apparently. They are EXECUTIVE As) has brought me some mcvities breakfast biscuits. The fact that I sww these being handed out in the station earlier does not diminish my gratitude. I am not hungry though. feel quite sick after a lot of red wine last night.
Looking forward to behaving like a 10 year old :)
Just read Bamnan's thread from last night: hope he's OK. Glad the posts were (almost) all positive. I think he's a good lad
I'm a bnit fearful of water parks. I don't like getting water up my nose. it makes me think I'm drowing (near-miss drowning incident when I was 4 still affects.)
Lots of advice to take on board. Sometimes you don't need advice though, you just need a hug. I wish there was somebody near him who could go and deliver one of those to him this weekend.
The thing with water parks is that you have to leave your dignity at the door. It ain't easy looking cool when you've hit the water at 40mph and got a chlorine enema and a massive wedgie.
But I need to do some pre-slide diligence because I NEED to know when I'm going to hit the water so I can take a deep breath and pinch my nose with one hand and hold onto my tits with the other. I am basically a massive baby.
Very loudly being "witty" about mid-level IT. Fucking kill me.
I had to tell my story (why are you home, what happened etc) three times. I am exhausted.
(also today is baby day- I will pm when we have news.)
well wishing to the absolute nth degree. so. EXCITING.
TEA is amazing though. Mmm, tea.
coffee or die
I am all cried out. Never thought it would be this emotional actually.
Still, coffee will make me vom, I'm not even going to try it.
i slept like a baby last night, small miracle, other puns, etc.
whatever it is, my nose has been useless for almost a fornight and pissing me off. also i was well idiotic and wore a pair of socks to work with a light hole in them and now my heel is rubbed and infringing upon my enjoyment.
might start a thread about apricots later so you might want to keep an eye out for that, but don't be surprised if i don't as i haven't really much to say other than that i like apricots a lot and I'm really getting through them at a satisfying rate the moment.
so you're probably really ill.
if they don't work i might have to face up to a frighteningly daunting prognosis.
maybe just take some more loratadine? or ask your gp for desloratadine. It seems to work better in people who aren't getting any joy from the over the counter stuff. (me).
I used to take one in the morning and one at night when mine was really bad but this year I've been OK with just one a day and Beconase.
just take more loratadine. BLESS YOU (atchoo).
i mix lots of other things
Don't look at me like that, I'm an ENTREPRENEUR!
Not sure how much it's helping really.
and my mind just boggled.
Are you taking antihistamines? If not, might be worth trying (that and a beconase nasal spray). if you feel better, then there's your answer. If you're already on meds, then maybe take some day nurse.
It's ok, this is free as it's your first consultation with me.
i always take nasal sprays all wrong and stuff and normally end up with worse symptoms that i began with. as above, i've taken some of the run of the mill things. i'll probably survive until the late afternoon before dosing up on a hefty amount of boozing.
Avoid white wine or any wine with lots of sulphates. it makes mucousy symnptoms much worse. x (you now owe me £200, that was technically my third consultation. I'll waive the fee this time because you and your missus are so cute.)
pitty i boozed some white wine last night then i guess. I'll stick to the beers and spirits tonight then, probably end up having too much though, won't I? ...frickin' idiot!
Everyone else has bacon and it smells amazing, not fair. Waaaaaaaa Waaaaaaa Waaaaaaa
Oh No, I just want to be dragged into the pit of sodom, my boss just told me I was allowed to take next week off but I havent made any plans, Fuck My Life. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
unfortunately i have very little attention span and a punnet of apricots that's got my name on it, well my surname on it at least.
Not fair, this is just not fair. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Woe is Me, Woe Is Me. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
It could probably turn those tears into apricot stones then you could grow your own apricots on your week off
...Well I dont know but it just has OK, ME ME ME ME ME, Waaaaaaaaaaaaa Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Just stood in a puddle Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
London after work on Wednesday then a 5 am start to go to Birmingham for a full day of corporate bullshit yesterday has floored me.
BUt, IT IS THE WEEKEND. YOU CAN LIE IN YOUR SCRATCHER ALL DAY SHOULD YOU PLEASE FOR THE NEXT TWO DAYS. that wasn't meant to be all caps but i'm not going back now.
Which is about as good as you can do when there's only 3 of you and the rest of the pub use their phones the whole time.
Really hope I can spend the whole weekend playing video games and watching the Sopranos but I reckon I'm gonna end up working the whole time.
look up quiz answers on their phone are the worst. they shoudl be put out of the pub instantly and barred and the word spread to nearby pubs too that they are cheats.
I wanted to beat her over the head with it
it's not an open book exam, it's a fucking quiz.
It would be hard for one man to police.
Plus I ain't a snitch
Vermin they are. Vermin.
It's the one issue where I can understand people who think we should bring back the death penalty.
Then I'm a spend my weekend eating loads of nice food and drinking some beers.
(fear not, i got the train in)
I got in it to drive to the statoin, got into second gear and thought NO FUCKING WAY, pulled over and ran to the station. Well, kind of wiggled to the station because I am wearing a ridiculous getup today (i know there will be photos getting taken later for a family painting and vanity wins.)
he came in this morning and checked-in to four square while I was mid-conversation and I said, 'oooh are you the kind of the building now?' and he said yes but he looked all uncomfortable for a minute and said, 'erm I'm just the mayor, four square doesn't have a king' in the cutest way.
but he thinks this means something. Anyway, now everyone else is trying to become mayor and I think that you do it by checking in more times than anyone else into a location. So you could be mayor of say, some cool new club, or starbucks in Richmond or whateves. I don't know, I don't play it
whats four square?
and it was funny that he got a bit OCD because I said 'king' instead of 'mayor' and I just meant the winner.
Before she went back to Australia she was the mayor of both the Old Blue Last and the Gherkin.
Got a random day off, haven't I? Might go to that British Library propaganda exhibition. Then the pub.
They weren't removed until my boyfriend came home at 1am. I'm an idiot. Wasn't even drunk for fucks sake.
Oh how me and my father laughed when I had to call his mobile and drag him out of bed, ohohoho.
enjoy your random day off! I am now thinking WHY THE HELL DID I NOT TAKE TODAY OFF. it's not like i'm going to get any work done.
this probably means i'll have a dull, repetitive, hour+ task coming later but to be honest thats just what i want right now.
although I have to say I am seriously sceptical.
I've given them a sniff. My suspicion of them grows by the minute.
they look dry and I'm so dehydrated right now, my mouth is like gandhi's flipflop.
Had to work late unexpectedly, which meant cancelling plans for the evening. I very rarely have plans but had two sets of plans on the same night and was very much looking foward to both. GRR!
Feeling better this morning as the company I work for won a MASSIVE award last night and I had a small but not insignificant part in us winning it.
Also, this coffee tastes good.
It's Clipper Medium Roast Organic Arabica Coffee, if you want in on the action.
fax it to me.
Just scan this QR code for some:
Just be quick, it's getting cold.
cat_race is here and I suspect there will be a bombardment of threads. Foley is having a Needy Day (waaaah). CCB is hungover, let's all laugh at him for a bit. And some other stuff. yeah.
Going for wild boar burger at lunch then to that floating Chinese restaurant near Regent's Park after work (not for me though). Should be an ok day hopefully.
Treated myself to a nice coffee this morning though, and am off to a new restaurant tonight, so shouldn't complain too much.
I convince myself each one won't take long, procrastinate all day, then end up rushing them all at 4pm and getting angry if anything goes wrong.
I wnat to go to a nice restaurant this weekend.
Despite living here for a year (and deciding to move on in October), we've barely been to any of the restaurants aside from Zucca and The Garrison, so we need to tackle them.
It's had, um, mixed reviews.
Left my running shoes on the train
It's raining and I didn't bring a coat
The sooner we can take the working week out back and shoot it the better.
Have you called the train company?
I've mostly just been calling myself names, but it doesn't seem to be helping. I'm gonna call them shortly. They were reasonably cheap ones, but still. I hate losing stuff.
I hope to fuck he does, feeling quietly confident!
Will you just drive down tonight?
Failing that i will just end up falling in and out of pubs around the (west end of) Glasgow area! :)
Hello, how are you?
neice is being born between 11.30am and noon, so I might nip off to the pub shortly and have a stiff one.
Tonight is wetting the baby's head (probably in gourock with friends and family) and then tomorrow I am visiting the baby in the afternoon and going to ediburgh in the evening.
i'm trying to plan a MEAT, are you in? If so let me know your no-go dates (and we'll plan it for those dates, hawhawhaw.)
When do you find out about glastonbury?
have a brilliant time. Pelt Mumford and sons with some eggs please x
did a big smile and then reality appeared and kicked my teeth down my throat.
still not been paid the ton of money i'm owed, had a bit of a down moment listening to the national album on the way in to work.
springsteen on sunday.
i think tonight i will mostly be in a bar.
I'm jealous. My friends who saw him in glasgow said it was the best thing they'd ever seen (and they've seen him before).
and was a little bit disappointed by the hyde park shambles last year. have heard nothing but lavish praise for this leg of the tour though so pretty excited. still, i do wish that seeing springsteen in a couple of days would shake this fucking bland, low-level misery of a mood i'm in!
See you at the bar!
if there's sun we're doing a bit of lazing about in victoria park beforehand - going in in time for alabama shakes i guess...say hi if yr nearby, i'll try not to be in a shit mood!
Fucking hate it when that happens. I'll probably just sit here for ages thinking about things i could do, then it'll be about 4pm so i'll just go to the pub for an hour, read the paper, come home, watch telly, have a powernap, eat some tea and go to bed. Total fucking bullshit. Genuinely don't do anything but work, sleep, eat, watch telly, have a few pints.
BUT, if you know that's how it's going to pan out, just accept it and ambrace it. if it bothers you that much that you're 'wasting'* a day, then force yourself up and out. don't sit brooding about it, because that is what I do and it sucks.
* I've come to realise that sitting around in one's pants dpoing not very much is not actually a waste of time. It's essential relaxation for busy execs like us ;)
Excited, I've got him all sorts of cool dinosaur, space and robot shit
Haiku salut were amazing.
Woke up thinking it was Saturday, but works alright coz were just playing games all day and I've already had a fry up.
Got out of my absence pretty dam fine this morning.
*puts on smoking jacket*
What did you tell them?
I thought all was very well aware of this last week when I brought it up in the morning meeting last week.
Turned it back on them...
Hold on, how long does it take to become a lawyer? Ten years?! ;)
I know at least one person on here who could do me damage
Any employer of mine knows full well what they're getting (yeah, thanks a bunch google.)
I tried to report some images on google of me from a couple of years ago because my email address for myspace no longer exists and I got a few modelling photos on there that I did that I wanted to get off.
Maybe I should take your approach ie not give a fuck!
When are you back in London? Or you residing in Glasgow for good?
In as much as I'm ever anywhere for good. But I'm looking to buy property here and settle (haha, settle. you know what I mean), yes. Back down last weekend in July for my friend's birthay, so we shall catch up then if you're around?
(and my flatmate is Glaswegian) so I should be up in August x
Let's organise a day out/ MEAT (veggie variety) and go for a jaunt down the clyde on this-
If so, you do the CPE (one year crash course in law) and then a one year practice course and then you start work as a trainee solicitor (2 years). So trainee solicitor in two years and fully qualified in four. EASY PEASY.
Thanks for the advice, but I want to be an MP. X
We could set up our own law firm and wear shoulder pads and smell of over expensive rank perfume!
(I am bloody well powerdressed to kill today. You would be so proud of me, even if I am bursting out of everything.)
I got my heel stuck in the pavement on busy Oxford Street the other day and kept walking. Then I had to go and retrieve the shoe in question but it was proper stuck in the hole. It is hard being a woman. Especially a woman in heels.
because I got my kurt geiger stiletto caught in a tramtrack (it had an ankle strap) and instead of unfastening it and running (which I eventually did) my first instinct was to try to yank it free, despite oncoming tram.
but as most of the people above and around me are also off at 'Glasters' or similar, I'm sat at home, working.
And think at the same time "I'm getting paid for this"
the whole point is, it's my holiday day - and I'm having to work anyway to cover for everyone.
people aren't saying `Glasters` now are they? They can't... :(
but that's a big IF
....and don't call me Shirley!
the email I received nearly made me vom.
Good time to go to Clapham this weekend. They're all at Glastonbury now.
she's just a dick.
Might well be able to go to clapham this weekend actually...
despite that i've 100% stopped listening and have turned so that he's speaking to the back of my head
how much more of a hint do you need
I've turned away from you, I've read and started replying to an email, I've put my headphones on, WHY ARE YOU STILL TALKING TO ME?!
Me may take the hint then.
People are weird.
and i'm about to break
new housemate moved in and I'm hiding in my room
so they think you're cool.
You could start a whole new persona on the back of this.
my whole world is crashing down
YES MATE. Well pleased about this.
Tomorrow - see my Dad, maybe do a spot of record shopping and beer tasting then off to see a band called MFC Chicken. Sunday I'm going to explore Lewes and also go to this in the evening:
"Around 20 vintage organs with distortion pedals, featuring local performers alongside leading experimental rock musicians and acclaimed percussionist Chris Cutler. Described as 'somewhere between drone minimalism and cosmic jazz'. "
8lb 5 bruiser <3
I think I'm going to faint.
Your photos & video are keeping me above the line today xxxx
when I am going to spam the shit out everybody's inbox of me and the bairn. This is going to be the longest 5 hours of my life. Fucking work. Stupid late visiting hours.
Thank god for Viognier and Kayos (who poured it down my throat at lunch.) Actually, it's quite good, need five hours to sober up for baby holding duties. <3
It's dragged like an absolute bastard. Just be thankful your sister gave birth on a Friday!
but there's been a work catastrophe. I don't think I could have waited four days, waah. I might lie down under my desk for a bit.
I've been pacing the floor for the last three nights.
Enjoy it, bloody love Uncling, it's the perfect balance of fun without many of the shitty bits
literally. I don't really do kids.
(((hugs))) to you x
(I still think I'm going to faint.)
but that is all about to change. Which is slightly unfortunate as I'm defnitely a little bit drunk.
only got an hour left, done 1 job all day
Could maybe do someones 6 month review
*puts feet up*
that permanent contract w/ payrise should finally come to fruitition now.
I am not that surprised.
