Might have broken my foot falling down some stairs (shut up). It hurts quite a lot, but not as much as the social pain of explaining what's happened to my colleagues and the sartorial pain of wearing (admittedly incredibly comfortable) trainers with a suit.
Either way, hope all is reet, fella. Accrue sympathy as and when.
The doctor said that from the look of the bruising/swelling it seemed like it was broken, but they couldn't see a break on either of the x-rays they took. Apparently they're giving it to some specialist foot doctor today for a second look and they'll let me know.
Have you found somewhere to live yet?
Moving in on Saturday. Though our agents are being complete arseholes about a reference, I have no time to clean, and we've yet to book a van.
I wonder if I'll see vamos about.
also I might be on BBC Look East later
Good day today. Got some confirmations of some ace interviews I wanted to do with some bands I love - just sort of doing a bit of music writing for free as a distraction to the day job. Still feeling happy about band after a good gig on Saturday and really, really pumped to be seeing a friend of mine on Friday too. Hurrah!
Get in around 8pm. Quite excited.
Before I go, I have a calculation to hand over and a few other things.
we are going to make Friday night MELT YOUR FACE WITH PREMIUM BEER/BOOZE.
The nearest available one is now over 3 miles away from my boyfriend's brother, who's gonna be driving it. Feel bad making him get a bus :(
I would have been a tour guide on an island that was used as a prison/naval base during the 20th Century. The job would have included working as a research assistant too.
Unfortunately I'd started another equally low-paying but much shittier job in a call centre three weeks ago which rendered me ineligible to start this job. The reason I started this job was because I received NO correspondance from the first employer for five weeks. Fuck's sake.
I'm going to talk to the project manager today to see if I can get weekend work on the island. Fingers crossed.
Can you not just leave the first place?
Now that I've taken a job I won't able to reapply unless I quit and go back on unemployment benefits for six months.
I'd quit in a heartbeat if I could get the job but having contacted our Social Welfare offices I've been told there's no way I'm eligible now.
*causing a serious fuss.
Going to try and convince them to hire me in some capacity.
I found myself getting stressed out about and it's nothing to do with me
i would also like it
You would have to move to Ireland though, unless you wanted to commute?
Enjoy the daily ferry commute from your place of residence!
.. is what my mum told me this morning.
Another shitty day, got to get my head around a load of new projects I can't be arsed with. Really couldn't give a fuck about them but got to try.
was off yesterday because i had to wait around the flat for the internet person to deliver us internet. He did so. I then played Gran Turismo 5 for hours and watched some breaking bad. Top stuff.
ate half a pan of brownies for breakfast and it's a week until I jack in work for a bit. Feeling pretty ok tbh.
I loved my time off <3
it was 36c in Madrid last weekend. yyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah

you too were both at tramlines when i had to move house anyway. nows MY TIME in the sun.
She going to be there *cue mum jokes*
People will just think you're off your head...I wante to go actually but playing a gig :(
Have fun :) It's a lovely area to have a festival.
So little time to do it all.
*continues posting on DiS all day*
For yoga and boxing. Some guy farted in front of me in yoga. I laughed so hard I had to leave the room.
After all these years and people farting in public still makes me laugh. Childish but what a hoot.
All my mates are going to Cockabilly in the George & Dragon and I don't want tae go.
if so then hell yes.
Come with me!
I guess I forgot to update that
but it is actually pretty good, that said you could probably get away with watching them in the wrong order.
I have an Orange code and everything.
There's not an awful lot of good stuff out at the mo.
I saw a trailer for that the other day, it looked alright actually.
I quite like Walburg as an actor.
She said the last time someone farted in her class she had to pretend she had something in her eye and leave the room to convulse with laughter.
So it's not just you.
With your feet looped under and one of the girls did it and as she pulled herself up she must've untensed the holdy in fart muscle and let one rip and every one heard but didn't say anything. Then later in the evening when I was drunk I mentioned it and everyone laughed.
sit-ups as part of an adventure assault course?
worst assault course ever
While having a walk around the woods. It wasn't anything like an assault course really.
oh god I really need to do some actual work
Do some work
Arms are like steel now too. Today I will mostly be sat in the sun reading wind up bird chronicle and washing my clothes in the sink in my room. Might go for a cycle later.
*scoffs a ricecake at the office desk in despair*
Little hidden away village. Its honestly the most beautiful place I've ever been. I'll see if I can get some pics up so you can pretend youre here too. :D
Have a lovely time x
what I see when I have my evening cigarette on the steps http://i.imgur.com/pTRjN4l.jpg
The villa belongs to one of the boy's parents. There's also a tennis court and a swimming pool. Rich kids eh. (i am not one, i just befriend them)
Especially for reading whilst on yer hols.
also applied to ghost-write a porn star's autobiography. could be good.
treading water today cos i'm off to green man then on holiday tomorrow.
How does one apply to do that?
(see tuesday thread for my moping) i went 100 miles an hour at all the writing jobs on people per hour. that one stood out like a massive cock. it's a female porn star who wants to write a book about her time in the industry and inform people about How It Works. she compares the format to jenna jameson's book which i've not read but can pretend to have done so for money.
Has anyone heard of someone cslled Ron Burgundy?
Everyone in the office: *Giggles*
My Boss: Is he famous then?
Us: Yeah, a bit. *Numerous Anchorman quotes*
My boss: Never heard of him.
and I want to watch the football.
tartan army etc
I have now found a party to go to for the purposes of watching ourselves get humiliated later.
that guy in facepaint has shown commitment to wearing it this early in the morning.
They're on the train drinking (eating?) whisky yoghurt for breakfast at 8am. Oh dear oh dear Rossco.
so I've proceeded to be a giant fucking baby about the whole business. So far this has involved taking 2 days off work in order to drink and generally mope about.
You'll be fine :)
but I can't. Kind of annoying. Maybe 2 more days of intensive woe-is-me bullshit and it'll begin to lift - that's today's depression forecast.
Moping yourself is great (kind of necessary too, as you don't always- ever- want your friends to see you crying when you find one of her hairgrips down the back of the sofa) but it's only helpful for a very small period of time- you need company to be able to rationalise things.
But I don't really use my friends as a support network. I'm quite private and I find the idea of talking about stuff like this really alien. Pretty stupid I know.
She had spent my birthday with me. We had a great day, she'd made me thoughtful presents, we went for a meal etc. When we woke up the next day together there was just this coldness. Something had changed literally over-night. That was Friday and it was just a count down from then on. The break up itself was just her saying that she didn't want to be anyone's girlfriend. That's fair enough but up until that point she seemed really into me.
How old is she? It sounds like the sort of thing I would do when I was in school. Most adults don't just change so drastically overnight unless they are highly deceitful or unwell.
shes been mulling it over for a while, didnt want to ruin your birthday. could be wrong
I've kept relationships going in the past because it wasn't a good time for either or both of us to go through a split (whether family or health issues or something as minor as we've got a holiday booked and well, you never know, a holiday can sometimes make things better...)
However, what you don't do is dump the second thta you feel you ahve the all clear. That is weird! were you together for long?
That's a really horrible thing to do. What a mind fuck.
you'll drive yourself nuts.
and hope it's not drinking alone at home for 2 days...give someone a ring to meet up or summat? hope yr ok.
thank fuck my train is late enough to be arriving before the kick off of the football shitheap.
Took to twitter to try to sort out my vodafone issue. Got Which? involved.
On my phone settings, it says I've received 11.5GB of cellular mobile data in well over a year. Weird.
I am about to do the same with jacuzzi whrilpool as they're not returning my calls and emails.
probably doesn't make up for nestle killing babies like
Fucking swollen face
Fucking useless painkillers
Fucking clove oil tastes like melted earwax
by two people on a motorbike, couldn't do fuck all about it
feels bad, man
