tell me of your...life
then watched the Piper Alpha documentary. I am not ashamed to say I shed a few tears whilst watching it.
was frank at least there for support?
he was sleeping though
“Sanskrit has ninety-six words for love; ancient Persian has eighty, Greek three, and English only one. This is indicative of the poverty of awareness or emphasis that we give to that tremendously important realm of feeling. Eskimos have thirty words for snow, because it is a life-and death matter to them to have exact information about the element they live with so intimately. If we had a vocabulary of thirty words for love ... we would immediately be richer and more intelligent in this human element so close to our heart. An Eskimo probably would die of clumsiness if he had only one word for snow; we are close to dying of loneliness because we have only one word for love. Of all the Western languages, English may be the most lacking when it come to feeling.” - Robert Johnson, Fisher King
come to my fucking gig on the 24th
Trying so hard to resist the urge to get one now and be poor for the rest of the month.
I'm probably gonna feel like shit after this
It was good. I'm really good at picking out plausible flavours and the guy telling me I know what I'm doing.
Also had an Etna pizza at Pizza Express. It's given me a dodgy tummy. Was nice though. Pizza Express always do a very solid pizza.
but I checked and it's not until 1. Now lying in bed applying for more jobs.
I was so nervous last night I ate 4 burgers, (2 in buns with cheese and bacon, 2 naked).
i wish i had burgers
Tell me about Streatham.
Like most things, I can't really be bothered.
but is it a good flat?
also it's with fucking foxtons.
We're seeing one tomorrow evening and then some on Saturday too (not Foxtons) so fingers crossed we don't end up renting from them. Are they really that bad?
ended up with all my stuff on the street because they'd fucked up the contract and couldnt get hold of the landlord on agreed date of move in. that was pretty special.
i'm sure it's case by case
their patter, their offices, those fucking minis. nothing really encapsulates the horrors of the London property bubble more than those pricks.
still get a good laugh though over their huge Camden office, they opened it just as the market crashed and it'd regularly have six guys sat around, doing nothing, in an office built for fifteen times that number.
They all sit around looking terrified (because of course they are all on a basic of minimum wage and only earn anything approaching a swanky estate agent lifestyle if they let/ sell shit tons of properties. NOT GONNA HAPPEN IN THAT OVERSIZED OFFICE ON PARKWAY, SUCKERS).
I went on the radio with my mum last night to talk about a fundraiser I'm putting on and the charity we're donating the money to (Gendered Intelligence if you fancy having a gander). Afterwards we went for a drink with my bro and laughed a lot.
I have about £200 to spend on something cool. Suggestions?
I'm getting very blase about this and will clearly soon come a cropper when I fall asleep again and am massively late for work.
Had crumpets for breakfast. Need to send my Aunt's Birthday card today.
For the FAO of thewarn - they're singing in Ely Cathedral all week apparently.
But it was nice to go out with bf as he's away with work now for 2 days and I won't spend time with him until Sunday as we're both mega busy.
I have twisted my back weird.
I am in a bad mood.
Seriously bad acting especially from Emma Watson and her stupid dumb fake accent. They made it really dull and boring with no suspense or anything.
The soundtrack was good though.
i hate being lied to by adverts
And the music is supposed to make it all cool etc but its mainly cringe
The torrent of S3E1 that i downloaded was all fucked up and bits were in the wrong order and the last 15 mins weren't even there so that pretty much ruined my life last night. Tonight i need to do loads of drawings of babies so that someone gives me some money soon
i did a whole re-watch of xfiles a few years back and it was the BEST decision (i mean not after like season 5 obV)
i own Seasons 1 through to Season 7 of Xfiles on DVD. If you want you can borrow them.
Or get American Netflix, they're all there.
I'm pretty sure that one was a three parter with the first two episodes of season 3
so if you'd seen the last fifteen minutes you'd just have had another cliffhanger
Fuck, I hate my neighbours so much.
And the lead girl has one of those forcibly quirky voices that girls seem to sing with these days.
It's too hot to close the windows and I can hear them all over the flat because they're so fucking loud. I can't go over and ask them to shut up because they were hanging around in the carpark yesterday and they looked really intimidating.
so lighten up?
but it's hardly Vesuvius erupting.
They've been singing one or two bits from the same song for over 20 minutes now.
Exactly like that.
Since the good weather started they've been out there, being really loud and irritating, every day from about 9am-1-2am.
well that's very different. fair enough
who used to sing and play her guitar almost constantly. We realised at some point that she was recording. It was fine when we were in the mood for it but it got pretty annoying, and i was unemployed at the time so when it was aaaaaaalllllll day it was excruciating. Playing Gallows' first album at volume seemed to sort it out though. I recommend that
Am I allowed to call the police?
rate things are going, there's not going to be a loving couple to live in that house
(I was thinking last night about my Jewish relatives in Cheatham hill who Ive never seen and wondered who they are. I could have met them, weird).
Nothing broken just a swollen and bruised foot from a certain goal saving block on Sunday. Apparently you can stop your bollocks becoming radioactive by using a King's Lynn Gonad Shield, who knew?
Oh my gosh it's actually perfect. The whole 'you should have bought an iPad' thing was starting to get to me. This is so much better than I expected (and my expectations were super high) <3
Suspect my laptop will now only be a study machine.
this is the first time i've been in a good mood since i don't remember. not really sure why. going to write an email to my boss telling him i dont want to do my job anymore and to try and get a new one. my time is now.
the ex emailed me yesterday to say she just got engaged. thats not why i'm in a good mood by the way, but it's news. i think she's mad.
i forgot to tell everyone that a few weeks ago, i got to say 'hello glastonbury' to a crowd of tons of people at glastonbury. maybe not in the context that i wanted it to happen, but one of lifes things ticked off the list now.
stupid good mood.
I thought I saw you but couldn't be sure if it was you so didn't say hello and it was busy and I'd lost my friends.
i didn't see you though, sorry.
we all lost our friends, dont worry.
I could've shouted meths but I didn't want either of us to have to explain to our friends why I was shouting meths to a stranger.
Hope you had a fun time.
and i spent most of my time there, so it was probably me.
Will your boss let you continue working there will you jobhunt? Or will you be out on your arse? I ended up confessing to my old boss that I was looking for jobs in scotland because the deceit became too stressful to manage.
we had a 'chat' last month and i said i'd outline what i wanted to do. but i've been mulling over whether to just say, 'i like this part of my job, so i don't mind doing that...' or just, 'complete change please'. i'm opting for change.
Might go for a walk over the wilds of Burntwood at lunch.
Dunno what to have for tea, we have nothing really. Best bet at the moment is some pasta with a jar of tomato sauce, could throw some chorizo in I suppose.
Football after that. Maybe a couple of beers to celebrate.
(which meant canceling social plans and losing much-needed studying time) just got canceled, because the client is insisting it was never scheduled. I still have the emails. It FUCKING WAS, you STUPID COW!
I'm going to go for a walk. Actually, my letting agent's office is only a short walk away...
EVERYTHING IS FUCKED, EVERYBODY SUCKS
im turning into mits
unless it's smashed idk
I need this.
and i've also just had a meeting with my CEO. i'm trying to persuade him to let me something which might involve me publicly humiliating myself on a fortnightly basis (and therefore possibly harming our brand.) On the other hand I could be excellent at the thing and really enhance our brand. He is going to think about it. Had a meeting last night about the thing which might be embarassing or brilliant and the people I was with tried and failed to get me drunk. haha. Could totally murder a pint now though.
as he is not a letting agent WANKER.
it's 10:59 :(
I got a text at 07.19 to say that all are still alive. Crazy, cruel, fuckers.
because I pissed around too long worrying about the financial aspects.
Also got offered a load more shifts at work, which is great because poverty, but it also means I'm working evenings/weekends for the next ten, possibly fourteen days, which makes viewing flats somewhat challenging.
So the radio station I help run is doing a 24hr show next month (2 people on air, constantly, 10am to 10am) as a fundraiser for our charity partner. I was thinking about (inspired by that 24hr Gran Turismo 5 race article someone linked to yesterday) doing my own 24hr challenge whilst they're on, playing a 24hr game of Sim City. They say Rome wasn't built in a day... BUT CAN IT BE? Can't decide if it's a terrible idea or an amazing one or both.
need to phone the fish guy cos he's stopped replying to my emails. problem is, the organisation he works at has one of those Alan Partridge "Inception... No.... Inception...." type things where you have to say the person you are trying to speak to's name and it puts you through to them and it don't work.
apart from that will probably just sit around drinking, reading Taipei, reading The Wire, watch music videos on BT Vision &c
NEW JOB NO TIME TO INTERNET :(
But I bloody love it, guys. So it's okay, you know?
Summer party anecdote? A guy asked me if he good take me for dinner...and then threw up all down himself.
Did he then hand you a spoon, straw or toothpick?
^ You can search / write whole words, delete individual characters without deleting the word, scribble badly in the wrong stroke order and it doesn't seem to care, use voice search / typing in Japanese....
My life is honestly about 20% better now. That sounds a bit Apple, doesn't it? But it's insanely useful.
should I go to Lodz or Warsaw? Or spend 2 days in each?
(Manchester not London) last night. Scary stuff.
I also stayed up late making a poster for my tours as I really need to get back into doing them. Then I spent the morning laughing at the terrible website for the new Cornerhouse.
I am locked in my bf's flat, I'm so hungry and I want to be in the sun. I CAN'T GET OUT.
