Feeling pretty crap today. Gonna go shopping for records at lunch to Chet's myself up.
Haven't got round to putting it on my phone yet cos I have hardly any space, need to free some up. Gonna do that tonight.
I had to look up one of the puzzles in the end but it turned out that I was very much not alone on that.
What kind of comedy animal gif would cheer you up?
*called up at 8:20am, appointment for 10am*
dis cuntry iz a joke mayt
How you doing? Just drinking some tea and eating a ginger biscuit, ya know?
Just wondering s_a_d what are your thoughts on people wearing birkenstocks with board shots, when they're over 25?
and, ya know, if someone likes wearing something like that, good on 'em.
And herbal tea! Really love herbal tea. Like the detox green rice teas you get? I even bought a teapot for japan otherwise it's not quite authentic is it?
but my personal trainer has made me go on a Lobelia (amongst other things, the rotter!) free diet! Used to love a comforting cup off green tea with a rice cake. Really soothes the soul. I bet youve noticed the difference! Might aswell not bother otherwise! Make sure you send me a couple of instagrammed pics of the pot while its brewing mate :)
how was last night? :DDDDD
(and now, she's a lesbian....)
Shes so nice it feels like Im being burnt to death though. I cant handle her level of enthusiasm for life
you're dating a female *me*
Sartorial disaster day.
When will I learn that they just don't stay up on my legs. I've had to send my intern out to get me tights (i think he's gay so it's cool.) I hate tights. I might just do my meetings bare legged.
for at least a couple of years.
But they seem to be unworking again. i wonder if it's the body lotion I use? I'm not stoppping using body lotion though, urgh. Can't do suspenders with this dress, hate tights. Think I'm going to have to wring out the very last of my suntan and go bare until I can find a solutoin. Or wear trousers to work (ahahahahahaaa. as if.)
Hmmmm. I don't know about this
*gets Dragons on speeddial*
(i am actually doing a deal just now with a pharma company. I might have a word with the sciencey one. this might be a plan.)
because then you'd get fluff/hair/stray dogs sticking to your legs
everyone wants that
*loos at profile*
To pretty much every MIF event this year so tonight I'm going to see The Old Woman with Willem Dafoe. Can't wait.
Left the rats cage open last night and stayed out, need to go home and survey the consequent damage now.
I also have an uneasy sense of foreboding. I'm off to crack some heads at work now
As his office is directly behind my desk this means two weeks of not having to hide what I'm actually doing at work. ¡Arriba!
Cha-cha-cha, waltz and jive. I had no idea what I was doing, kneed my partner hard, ended up knackered...but it was fucking excellent.
no one could
When I was a kid I was a bit of a tearaway and as a punishment my teachers forced me to do ballroom dancing instead of sports. This meant that all the other kids could bully me and slowly break me down. Completely true story.
but the joke's now on them, right?
i'm sure from your ivory tower of doing less than nothing every single day you are chortling. I will really work hard on the samba next week and then take you dancing big man. we'll get on FAMOUSLY.
You two should definietly go dancing :D
i like salsa dancing but seeing as i am not longer single i have no reason to pretend to like salsa dancing.
proving difficult. it's a lose/lose situ
and i got a lot of... attention. hahaha.
but it has glass walls.
won't be long before you're wearing the body tights and the 4 inch lashes.
but i LIKE it
he's the spitting image of chris_budget, isn't he?
Where are you doing it?
there's a ton of evening classes is a big-ish sized studio there.
+ going to scout camp tonight
+ got more home made paella for lunch today
+ stag plans are almost solid
+ might be going to Skye in two weeks with the dog
- boss is a ____
do you like catching a ball, wearing a leash, and allowing me to pick up your publically expelled defecation?
I want to go *with* the dog, not *as* the dog.
I will need time to consider my options.
I hope she pushes you into the sea on Skye.
if you're going to drink you really should eat first.
I can see the e-mails, it just won't let me read them.
Ah well, another day of doing fuck all for me I guess.
Bake tomato and olive ciabatta and while its rising go swimming. Having a 'chat' with my tutor for next year this afternoon so need to think of questions. Gonna ask what advanced reading I can do and how much statistics lab training we'll get cause I'll need loads.
it had a meaningful contribution to the thread :(
it's my birthday next Tuesday.
I'm going to Beyond Retro after work and buy myself an outrageous jumper.
Might go and see a band as well. Arf arf.
Hayfever has improved immensely you'll be happy to know.
Playing football again and generally not being at work, plus have next week off.
Although my Dad is over so I'll probably need to go see him wherever he'll be, but I think he's going to be working.
only just told about it, so no plans.
No excuse to not see my Dad, but as El is off at the moment I might see if he's up for hanging out.
Family are taking me out to lunch, whoop-dee-fucking-doo
Phoned up 5 times now and not got a clue what they are asking me, also took 10 minutes for them to understand the first two digits of my postcode
Can't fucking do this, fuck it going to have a whisky to calm me down then try phoning again
and I've not been robbed... result.
I'm knackered but not sure whether to go to sleep or try to stay awake to get back into some sort of rhythm. fuck it will probably just sleep.
it was fucking disgusting
Double stuffed. Fudge covered. Seasonal colour variations.
What a waste.
Band practice tonight. I've written a bad bassline.
While I had to get on a train back to this Byron-infested (well, there's one) hellhole.
it's more burgers.
Wonder what the queue will be like?
How does this place work?
That's a great idea.
All hail Five Guys.
I can see he's there right now.
pretty big queue already.
But they carried on serving people after me so I just walked away. Free stuff. am I gonna get bad karma?
talking about how gender roles are correct.
'Sure you can do anything a man can do, but you won't do it as well, same as certain things men won't do as well. That's why feminists are stupid, you can't fight your DNA'
Can't even. She was complaining about feminism yesterday and I confronted her about it, so now I don't know if she's deliberately trolling me.
I'd be tempted to warn her that she'd better not get caught saying anything like that in front of any of the HR fascists. Regardless of what your own views are, you can't get away with saying stuff like that at work. MORE'S THE PITY.
in this company she's very much in the minority. That's why after her comment and our discussion yesterday I'm not sure if she's trying to engage me in further 'debate'. I'm not giving her the satisfaction, however you're right, next time I'll be doing precisely that.
She doesn't know but I'm probably going to be her manager soon should I stick around (solely because I'm a man and do the job better than the two women who are managers in the room, obviously) so I'll just be able to call her out on it straight away.
dude, you could have just said you had a promotion in the pipeline. there's nowt more boring on here than male femenists.
It doesn't matter what my views are, and the promotion is of minor consequence, the point is I'm most likely not going to stick around for it.
The point being, genuinely don't see how someone can hold that viewpoint so vehemently, and actually believe it, and especially exclaim it in an office of people, especially given the company we work for.
and it has lacerated my ankle and it won't stop bleeding :(
and my blood must be really dark because I now look like I have a huge mole on the inside of my left ankle. Would not have happened if I'd just put on the grim tights.
Really don't ever want to be sat in this room again.
Then sat on my make up brush and snapped it.
Good for you sister.
keeping them on track and discussing the book is hard work. At least they all read it this time. Choosing a book is a nightmare though. "Oooh that looks shit, don't like that, ooh the publisher is independent...meehh" - genuine quote that last one. Complaining because a publisher is TOO INDIE???? Sorry, need to vent. They also all drink far too much booze.
BEST BOOK CLUB EVER
Stupid greedy bastard.
For a £6.50 lunch menu I was not expecting a 14" pizza, so full like
Penultimate day joy.
Seeing as I'm now jobless and have fuck all to do on a day to day basis, I was going to go back to the Isle of Wight for a few days for my mother's birthday. Except now I have to go to one of those group back to work sessions instead (which are the biggest load of gobshite. Last time they took an hour to tell us that there weren't many jobs going at the moment. No shit) And it'll still be another three weeks before I find out if I'm even eligible for jsa. I'm so sad. I just want to see my mum :(
The colleague I stay late to avoid walking to the station with is NOT LEAVING. GO AWAY. GO AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.
and am already bricking it. Have to do a presentation and the like. Balls.
