I've got a love bunch of peonies. WHEY.
hi Chintz, and congrats on your departmental move
Last night I got drunk with my new boss. She's probably my new fave person ever.
without the mint
Someone has given me the entire morning to do some work that has already been done. Sitting here grinning indulgently humming "I've got a golden ticket", except not humming but you get my drift.
What's that? You want to know what I'm doing with my weekend? Well alright. Carnival tomorrow, then maybe seeing Advance Base on Sunday. Phasers set to fun.
Supposed to be awesome. Occasionally stabby but mostly awesome. Going to drink alcohol from a coconut and dance like the amazingly white man that I am.
hoorah for chintz and her continued development as a working human.
ALL DAY BOOZE.
a song i've written's going to feature on a charity compilation for Stop Littering Britain, then i've got a 1pm ginger beer tasting/general brainstorming session with the temps. after that, off to see an amazing, amazing, lemon amazing monk scrotal art exhibition, followed by drinkies in Kilburn.
Biscuits on toilet
Morecambe and Wise re-runs
Checking DiS a lot, even in the evening
Tugging one out to a 2003 FHM picture of Melanie Sykes
It was totally brilliant.
(I don't like bagels)
but less snotty
Threw up so hard that my throat/nose bled a bit
Gonna order a pizza
that was a pretty bad time for me
I've got my scan tomorrow!!! How quick was that? Pretty quick. Well done, NHS.
Good God, what a load of pretntious guff. Everyone said they loved it though, of course, except this one guy behind me who started screaming 'it's rubbish' at the top of his voice :)
Went to the MIF launch party afterwards, lots of nice food, my top popped open so boobs were defo out for part of it.
Macbeth tonight, then got a house party, some walking tours, a bee keeping class and Massive Attack over the rest of the weekend.
you know bob's band are playing night n day on friday though? you should come to that
I always work Friday nights so doubt i can but I'll check
Was going to go to a comedy night tonight until I realized it was actually last Friday. Now I'm perturbed that I've lost a week somewhere.
I want to squeeze out this report first. It's been putting uncomfortable pressure on me for a little while and it'll be a huge relief to finally dump it on my boss's desk. Then I can wipe my portal clean for the weekend.
I'm off for a poo.
(Also, strongly leaning towards this MIC thing next week).
Tomorrow, US vs UK beers at London Fields Brewery, Sunday, cleaning flat, maybe a barbecue somewhere. Other suggestions welcomed.
is it a ticketed thing?
Went last week for their general food fair thing, was lovely:
Entry price gets you a pint (£4 usually) and some food (£4-£5), so it's not terrible value. There's music and shit too. It's all good. I'll probably do it in the day though for summer time drinking.
AND YOU FROM MY LIFE.
Music coordinator for Endy :D
Is this MiC thing not happening then?
going for thai tonight with friends
getting haircut tomorrow
Monday I have an interview for a job where I need to have a presentation ready, and already bricking it a little, as I'm already quite busy this weekend :/
Do the presentation here
I'd worry about getting bullied for having a non job ;)
i'm never going to be able to get past that am i?
if it helps this morning i made an infographic called 'history of the hashtag'. ;)
I'll have the feedback back by the end of the day.
It's working for a multinational cosmetics but also pharmaceutical company, and I have to come up with an idea for a content plan. I don't know if they'll want 'more of the same' - safe condescending shit, or y'know, something good.
vatican shadow last night was amazing
doing a bit of work and a bit of getting drunk this weekend
hopefully today will be pretty easy
There might be famous people there, I dunno. I'm probably not dressed for it but WHO CARES.
But I seem to have escaped a serious hangover despite a good effort. I sang Chesney hawkes last night with a sore throat and my friends didn't even pretend to me that it was good.
It's the weekend. Going to do some stuff.
Even the sausage and brown sauce didn't unbagel it for me. too chewy and now I have a headache.
Chewy bagels can do one.
Doughy, sweet, salty goodness.
I like soft and fluffy dough that melts in your mouth. OK, I quite like slightly chewy rolls too, like a slightly well fired Morton's morning roll (you won't know what I'm talking about but just nod along politely). But Bagels? NUH UH, taking it too far.
Unless it's got seeds in it - I'll get it in me.
Supermarket bakery kind are surprisingly good. Ones from a bag never are.
It's his last day of work, he should be skiving on here. and I want him to lie and say that I nailed that song.
and lie and say he nailed that girl
When we left s_a_d he was dfenitely not looking like he was off to the climbing cxentre.
I genuinely dont remember you singing that. They got me a warhammer dragon for my leaving present. This makes Andyvines post redundant. Shes not going to let me pork her now.
grant fucking foley said ' DARRRLING THAT WAS FUCKIN AWFUL'.
and then you nodded along.
I know it wasn't my best but you were both laiughing at me. oh yeah, and then laughing at my glasses. Laughing way too hard. grant looked like he wet himself. In fact, why do I even hang out with you guys :*(
(please don't go)
and the way cleaning them was the highlight of your night. I dont even remember the song?! Oh dear. Sorry.
Cleaning them was so not the highlight of my night. that would be playing with some cat playing cards.
I don't reckon anybody would have noticed had I not bothered. Bit late to worry about this as I'm here now. WORK.
rreally annoying as they had about 16 in them. Gutted.
you counted :D
(how many are left? I could swear there were more than (12)11. please save them. actually i'm going to buy more now, just smoke them.)
It is half hilarious/half a cringefest/half tragic/half terrifying, I'm aware that this is too many halfs. As someone that is now single for the first time in about ten years, I really should not be watching it - scary business.
Christ, sorry to hear things have gone that way. Hope you're ok. x
it is a brilliant/ terrible and quite addictive programme. I think I hate everybody on it.
how broken things were.
better off with a fersh start if it's beyond repair. I'm glad you're doing ok. We will drink whisky soon. I really need to organise a MEAT. Maybe next weekend.
And yes, First Dates is brilliant! My friend makes that <3
Have you watched Dates? Now that's a whole 'nother level of putting you off :D
good stuff and weirdly not as knackering as jiujitsu
Tonight: Pissed Jeans/Hookworms/Sauna Youth
Tomorrow: BBQ in my hometown
Sunday: UFC 162, Laundry
Also I had forgotten to tell my housemate I got my degree results and instead of just telling her I was like 'yeah should find out soon!' So I've just buried it in there with the moving out news. Kinda just wanted a quiet night in tonight but she's going to ask why I'm not celebrating :(
Sometimes I wonder what normal people would say if they saw this stuff.
I spent the entire day alone then had a Chinese takeaway with my parents which we were getting anyway.
I found out today I'm getting a scholarship for my masters and so won't need to take out a massive loan. I'm happy enough to go out.
They were really hard to put on but I wasn't sure but they're really shiny too
I thought they might have just been right socks it was dark at the time
followed by pissed jeans tonight.
getting sky installed tomorrow (potential of never leaving the house again=high) then seeing horse party in clapham.
sunday is writing, hopefully out in the sun.
Tonight I need to take in a dress
Tomorrow I'm going to Manchester (Monton if you're interested) for a joint 30th
Sunday - mooching about manc then coming home
It's quite nice but completely surrounded by utter, utter shiteholes. Stay in Monton.
And the Monton festival (I don't know what that is though)
MCC is alright. Monton festival is on the main road through Monton, there'll be a few scallies but not too bad.
Saturday is ram packed with birthday stuff but we are free until 3pm when we get the train home so can come visit you?
Fucking starving as well.
With my new set of Greek Kitten playing cards
Tonight - Gym, Tennis, Drinks in beer garden, possibly go to a club.
Saturday - Drinks in park
Sunday - Tennis
had a little cry in the toilets earlier as work is super stressful. was hoping to leave early today but that's not looking hopeful now. only half a day to get through though.
tonight my boyfriend has a gig so going to that. tomorrow a birthday bbq, and sunday i'm going to paint the garden fence like a proper grown up.
Instead of putting a customer on hold while I looked something up, I just looked something up while humming Jubilee Street down the phone. Was a good minute before I realised what I was doing.
Tonight : Listen to music and relax
Tomorrow : A couple of films and out to dinner with some friends
Sunday : Brentwood Festival to help out then radio show in the evening.
Also I'm going to see my girlfriend for the first time in while (long distance relationship) and head off to a house party some place in Woking later.
Today is a good day.
Tonight: prob just have a quiet one at home.
Tomorrow: Alcopop All Dayer at the Windmill with Johnny Foreigner and loads of great bands. So excited!
Sunday: possible hangover recovery, if not prob have a potter around town.
although FTA are kind of a nemisis...esis.
I quite like them. Is it general band rivalry or have they wronged you in some way?
i quite like them as well :D just he and i seem to have a knack for pissing the occasional person off
Is andy murray on at 4?
Bloody hell why did I do that?
How did that work out for you? I'm still at work eltham, how shite is that? I've actually just finished my work but waiting for my pal to arrive and she's not getting here till 7. So I'm going to go for a fag, come back to desk and flathuntfor a bit and watch some tennis. Boo. I want to go to bed.
You're missing a cracking match.
I'm going to wonder out for a fag and I'll go via reception and see if it's on the big screen :)
Go watch it. You'll fall in love with a 6ft 6in Argentine. Trust me.
BURMA. That is the absolute last thing my libido needs right now.
(I've actually just been invited to a drinks party at my old firm so I have to go now. boo.)
I'm in bed now absolutely exhausted. It was a nice ride, who knew Essex was actually quite pretty? We stopped for food and I got a double cheeseburger from a pub for £4.95 with chips, non-London prices <3 Good luck with the rest of your evening and I hope you have a truly wonderful weekend.
But I feel really sad and just want to stay at home.
I should have stayed at home :(
It wasn't very good.
Moving pictures and sound.
Even though she wouldn't have known that
Or maybe saw me recently and I looked really ugly
