What's this 'hump day' thing about?
Also, a packed lunch makes you more hungry in the morning. Fact.
How are you?
I hope you're happy.
What is a wotan?
Pretty sure he is why Wednesday is called Wednesday.
Closely related to Odin from what I can recall.
So I had a three person portion and then brought some for lunch this morning.
When I went to Spain I struggled with the food (I'm vegetarian) and this lovely bloke invited me and my mam over for dinner. He made this massive paella and looked so, so proud of it. We all had communication problems (even attempting Welsh with a Spanish accent doesn't seem to work) and so I looked into the bowl and there were all these animals staring up at me with tentacles and, oh god, I just panicked. I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to seem rude so I attempted to just eat the rice, but every time I went for a small spoonful of rice one of the beaded eye animal thingies would join the rice. And the stench. Oh lord.
so yeah. Mine had prawns in, sorry. I can make a veggie one though.
And I felt awful as he was welcoming us into his home and I didn't want to be rude. But, tentacles. Oh lord.
I hope you enjoyed yours though (surely you can freeze the rest)
might freeze it. actually, the prawns were previously frozen... so i might have to eat it tonight.
actually, despite eating meat, I can't eat anything with tentacles or things that look alive when cooked, like lobsters. prawns are even a stretch to be honest. *shivers*
^ that was me
What do you put in the veggie one? And what stock do you use?
and just everything; mushrooms, peppers, onions (x2), peas, sweetcorn, saffron, the rice umm... pretty much anything tbh
I live with a Glaswegian. She doesn't cook paella. In fact she doesn't cook anything really. She has got me into saying 'Get tae fuck' all the time though.
they'll do that to you. :D
And she watches that bloody Waterloo Road all the time. What's with that program? Filmed in Glasgow but full of Liverpudlian accents?
I'm going to hospital today. Which you woul think is a bad thing, but I didn't have to get up til 9.
I hope they don't close Lewisham A&E. It were great to see people standing up for their hospital yesterday on the news.
Hope you get on ok x
Someone's vomming in the loo. Bd.
(not calling you a horse btw)
(An empty one). No damage to anything but it has made me laugh for the last hour.
I'm teaching this morning and then I have lunch with people about becoming a TV lawyer which will be also be really hilarious if it happens.
I should definitely not be on here right now. bye x
You should talk to my mate Mags up in Glasgow, she works for the Beeb.
Everything is shit and London is now very expensive and has massively boring modern history.
Terrible shame isn't it? I'm sure we can murder a few million citizens of ethnic minorities just to spice things up a bit for you... :/
What a strange thing to say.
to a capitalist one. Which is, of course, interesting and I retract my original comment. Just a bit difficult not to think of the `modern history` of Poland without the words HOLOCAUST pounding out in front of me...
equally strange thing to say
Should've sought a bit more clarification before posting. I just found it a touch odd because when I came back from Poland recently I did so with a great sense of relief/guilt that folk like myself hadn't undergone so much varying hardship for the last 60 years or so. Hence meowington's post jarred with me because it seemed a tad insensitive, but I probably should've found out what she was specifically referring to first before leaping in...
It's just insane how things have dramatically changed in their county in the last 30 years. I wasn't really talking about the Uprisings but more about the fall of communism and how much it has effected the country and the way they live. It's so interesting how its changed and is still changing and there are people who are young (in thir 30s and 40s) that remember such a dramatic change in they live. When my friend was born, her grandfather was almost beatn up by the police trying to get her mum to the hospital to give birth, because you weren't allowed outside after 7pm! And that was only the early 80s.
And, yes, I was as fascinated with it as you were re: the transitions from economies and whatnot.
I just think we should be relieved, not depressed, that we have such a `dull` modern history in comparison is all.
Valium definitely helped but it was so weird cause I was thinking in my head that I should be super super nervous but I had no symptoms of nerves!! :)
Just don't reply on Valium! I ended up taking it most nights during bad bouts of insomnia. Good for flights though.
hope you had a nice time.
Whereas beer in poland is about 4 zloty which is about 80p :(
that is cheap beer.
might move to Poland
Can't believe how small jockeys are, I think some of their outfits were meant for particularly colourful Action Men. Also had a colleague make a drunken pass at me, which was flattering I guess.
For the FAO of marilynintheMITS: Hump day is the day you get over the "hump" in the middle of the week and it's closer to the next weekend than it is the last. Someone on here said they didn't like it, so it's an official Thing. So happy hump day to you and to everyone else.
I was starting to wonder if it was a code name for dogging DISers or something.
Might have been fueled by guilt at the portion size of my dinner.
Have to go to London this afternoon. Again. Fuck off Wednesdays.
Just got back into work to discover that I had accidentally not done something- and am now in a heap of shit. wnat to cry at my desk.
Someone come to Sweden with me, for I don't want to travel alone.
i've been invited to ireland twice this past week and to benidorm. just want to go back to torun or to berlin.
I just think it might be nice to go with someone. Berlin on my top 5 places to visit too.
i have family in sweden. keep getting invited by the flight looks a killer
when do we go?
it was a bit of a funny joke. OH i've got my tickets for tramlines though!
*Ricky Gervais face/tut*

There's an Irish girl there working behind the bar...
I need a favour (and can't find a suitable arrested development gif), but can't afford to pay an actual solicitor.

I'm defo dying. Which is a real shame because I think I could have been a great doctor.
So much to do, so little time.
