Hump day, innit.
12 hour shift on the cards for me. Looking forward to having a walk at lunch already.
SIX WEEKS OFF.
confed cup final.
They've knocked over a bin and Rosie has smashed her head into a table. Noisey buggers. Going to town in a bit.
My bowel is currently at terror level orange.
I have no work to give her and have way too much work of my own to do what with everyone swanning off to Glasto to make conversation. Argh.
Sometimes people are capable of more than they are given credit for, and you should try up use them wherever possible to help lessen your own workload
Have handed in our notice on our tenancy and have to move at the end of August. Already dreading it. What's the best way to (hopefully sell but otherwise) get rid of loads of books.
And does anyone want an exercise bike? It's good quality, but currently in pieces (all instructions and parts included).
I got rid of a few that way. Otherwaise charity shop, innit?
books I don't want to get rid of but don't want to cart around (either going to my parents or my mate's place) and ones to go.
If anyone wants a nearly complete collection of Redwall paperbacks plus two hardbacks, hit me up.
My Nottingham friend got off the train in Edinburgh and I was saying how civil and quiet Edinburgh was compared, went to go for a drink at my regular hangout to walk into a full scale riot. Then got involved in a mass brawl when leaving a club. Brilliant. I've just had to send a new guy home because he's still drunk - he hugged me as a thank you.
even if he looked really quite scared of me/ Grant/ Edinburgh in general.
Really fun hanging out on the Saturday though, glad you made it. Those skittlebombs blew my head off though and was a BIT of a mess. It was lovely :D I was welling up a bit myself. Did you manage to catch upon sleep?
Did you go and shag your colleague?
Work permitting I'll try to get through on thursday to mess up your night again.
Shes lovely though. Going for a drink later. I would be more than up for drinks if youre around. Dont kill yourself though, I think youre on for a CRASH!
Was it like kissing a mirror? :''D
I'll be reet, just need to get some sleep into me tonight and I;ll be fine.
This is the second time I've seen it mentioned. I was in Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon and there was some bellend overspill from the Orange Wank in Jinglin' Geordies but they were just being quietly bigoted in the corner rather than causing any trouble.
I assumed it was the orange march fighting between themselves, but nonononorobots was in the pub it kicked off in and they were Hibs supporters :s
You could tell they were looking for trouble like. Was pissed off as they had to close the pub and I had just bought a pint.
Accidentally blanked a friend in a local park.
Doesn't get much better than that does it?
Went out twice, went out for breakfast twice, had a barbecue and saw loads of stuff. Saw a whole bunch of the Gromit statues as well; on reflection I think I really like these.
My Dad came down to Brighton on Saturday. We had food and went record shopping. I bought:
Jon Hopkins - Immunity
John Talabot - Fin
Johann Johannsson - The Miner's Hymn
Apparat - Songs For Theatra (or whatever it's called)
Went to a surf alldayer at Green Door Store. Was fun for a bit but I got bored and went home.
So...what's the deal with Boyd Rice?
Spent yesterday at London Fields brewery and it was lovely, but everything is spoiled by fucking hayfever.
I was so frustrated. I even took some heavy duty antihistamines which I got from the hospital but they did nothing. My friend who works in a bee farm is getting me some honey, hopefully that does something.
i was at scout camp this past weekend and i am going back up this coming thursday. really sad i couldn't have stayed up the full week as it really was just starting before i had to come back to work.
happy canada day.
and ate a fair old bit of bacon. Fun weekend, would do again.
Oh, and the new series of arrested development- took a few episodes to get into it but I am loving it now.
and was running on very little sleep by the time saturday came around, so of course i drank on an empty stomach and then got a wee bit upset about s_a_d leaving edinburgh to go back to the midlands next week. because he m,y not be a BURMA but he is my pal. i cried on him in a pub and it was well embarrassing. his mate and grant foley tried to pretend they weren't with me.
Troublemaker on the social media pages that pretends we haven't had many phone conversations so that he can continue to complain about things and deliberately doesn't listen to feedback we give him. Great.
let me know how you get on!
Great weekend, but very tiring. Hardly got any sleep on Saturday night because Steve was snoring ALL NIGHT LONG. The hayfever makes it worse I think.
Should have taken today off.
I was never a fan. But three hours of amazing music from him and his band. Incredible. Blown away & broken.
I definitely need to do stretches before rocking out these days :-/
Otherwise completely sound weekend, although i got pretty intense playing Taboo last night and gf was very easy going about it so think i might get her some flowers as a concession.
...to an extent.
I mean i can't exactly headbang with no hair but I was doing some PRETTY good microphone moving around stuff
To an extent.
Went to Alton Towers at the weekend, was so busy I only managed to go on Nemesis the 12 times this time. Sunday I went to Newcastle and bought the biggest Ice Cream in the world, although they didnt have Vanilla so had to only get the 4 scoops this time. Also later in the day on the train home I fancied a beer, but only managed the 10 cans of lager this time.
What are you going to do, going back to alton towers again?
nodding off at my desk. I might need to go for a wee walk, I'm all out of wotsits.
And I literally can't be bothered to do anything.
You know when you have nightmares and they make you feel weird all day? That.
I was being really cross and mean to my dasd the other day becvause I'd dreamt that he had been mean to me, and I had to keep reminding myself that it was only a stupid dream. My poor day (he's just texted me to say that the cygnets have hatched!!! Bless him.)
Christ, I should just go home.
and I was about to laugh at the way you wrote cygnets. Then I learnt that that is how you actually spell it. I should be doing something else...
I bet you do, you filthy swine. Just out of interest, how tall are you?
This is a ridiculous question.
You get no details on how big my unit is.
If you're told that you'll hear back about an interview on a given day, at what time of the day would you give up hope of being told you've got the job?
And anecdotally this was not an uncommon experience.
it's not the end of the world if i don't get it
as it'll reduce the likelihood of me being able to host a new series of AQOS
A good balance of productive work saturday day, partying in the eve, sunny park sunday day and then falling asleep while reading last night.
Helped organise a suprise birthday/going away party on Saturday. the birthday girl got nice and emotional and then nicely drunk. very happy.
I'll know by the end of this week if I've got interviews for the two jobs that I spent FOREVER applying to, and will be pissed if I don't hear anything.
Meeting with my supervisor at the end of the week, and have not done enough work, and have no idea what I'm doing. Lets see how that goes...
Feeling pretty rock and roll overall \m/
it looks like rain :(
Since my bf has been at Glastonbury I've cleaned every room in his flat, I've cleaned the windows, the walls and transformed his balcony into a proper mini garden.
Spotted Braids are doing a mini tour soon, going to get Liverpool tickets today <3
I don't mind.
and buy you loads of plants for inside too then yes. Oh and rearranging of furniture. I love doing that. Cleaning comes with a rearrangement clause.
do you know anything about the Octopus Rooms in Chorlton? I think they've only just opened, get the impression they want it to be an art space type thing and do gigs and that but at the moment all they're doing is new mum lessons type shite. I hve a Vague Interest, ifyerknowwhaddimean
If so yes. They can't really do gigs in the space they have with residential surrounding but they were meant to be buying what was Yu and Me opposite work along with some drop in therapy type cafe but it fell through. I know a few people who have used them for classes - as in run classes there, seems quite good - they had an exhibition in there during the arts festival. That's all I know.
But I'm going to Braid as well, really fancied Brudenell instead of the crap Manchester venue but I like the support line up for Manchester, and it's easier.
woke up at 5:30am
went for a long run
haven't got work until 2
sitting mostly naked eating pizza
wooooo July and Aug are gonna be my months *dances* wake up lates, make some music, play some live shows, meet some new girls, touch some boobies, woooooooooooooo :)
Going to the bombay kitchen for a curry in a chapati now, which isn't going to help the sweats situation, but i think it's the only thing I want to eat today.
than old coffee taste in my mouth and a terrible sandwhich. Jels.
and it was amazing but I have slittered it right down my front. I guess if I rummage around in my boobs that will be my afternoon snack taken care of.
feeling slightly giddy
damn you body clock.
sat in pants in the sun eating ice lollies watching life in the freezer and sunday was all delicious snacks and cava and springsteen but then the journey home and the aftermath turned to disaster and shittery. today's not so great. have chucked in my ticket for odd future so i can just go home after work. bleh.
didn't get the interview for a job I really wanted. I knew it was going to be heavy competition but feel gutted. At least they told me :(
For future jobs. Try not to let it get you down too much - I applied for shitloads of jobs before I got anywhere. It will happen if you persist.
I would have been playing with penguins in the antarctic :(
But on the flip side maybe there were loads of applicants. I
Didn't get picked for a jury and told to home at 12.30. Might be needed Thursday onwards. Enjoying my impromptu afternoon off but back to work tomorrow.
You're in a case and can't go back to work until it's resolved?
I work for a university so they don't give a shit and just pay you anyway. (It's usually only up to 10 working days and I'm not needed for a couple of days so going into work anyway).
between two slices of white bread and ate it all up
Sat in Victoria Park for a while drinking cider and eating sandwiches then went shopping. Exhausted.
I'm off next week if you want to hang out.
that to pop up in a random Buzzfeed list that I'm reading because my coworkers are stuck in the East Bay due to the BART strike. How are you doing, Bamnan?
Even though I guess it's not funny and I feel a tiny bit bad but still.
Yeah I think I'm getting better thanks, been having a rough old time of late but I'm going to be an uncle again soon and I have some holiday coming up which I fully intend to spend making music :)
Which will mean I will sleep, drink and cook (no different that usual bit I can do the, to the excess). Just made a lovely curry, getting great at them, used to be it was ok the night I made them then good the next day, now they are great the night I make them and I think this one will be amazing tomorrow.
