It's OK, Manchester Met, you take your time deciding whether to accept me or not.
it will work out for the best. you will really enjoy manchester
What are you down for in particular, or is it a general visit?
but really enjoyed the game (especialy the first half for obvious reasons). It was a very entertaining engaging game. Let's NOT have them every year, btw, all you people on facebook- it's because they are rare events that they are SO good.
Despite going to sleep really early last night I feel like a barely functioning shell of a person today and I have to go back to my hometown tonight as there's some business that I need to sort out at the nightclub and that will mean an early start tomorrow to get to glasgow for proper work. I might invest in some pro-plus (do they work?)
coffee unsettles my stomach and makes me feel sick. I'm going to have to score some speed in Port Glasgow, brilliant.
I'll just need to make sure I get to bed at a decent time tonight and just deal with the early start when it happens (plus I'll have that friday buzz- hopefully won't notice how tired I am!)
walked in just as scotland scored, the walls were about shaking :D
Went to the Zoo yesterday. Saw loads of monkeys just doing a load of monkey stuff, loved it. A bunch of them all went crazy for about 15 minutes, all whooping and hollering and swinging around and sounding like a faulty arcade machine, it was great.
Then there was a young chimpanzee who was being a jerk to his mum and running away like a scamp, almost as cute as the baby spider monkeys with their crazy little tails and ridiculous sense of space and balance. I'd forgotten how fun zoos was.
Back to the grind now though, no monkeys in the office.
<waits for meths to come along and tell me I mean apes or chimps or something>
for a pet, it was called Ziggy.
Fullname Ziggy Stardust.
My friend Kris's is a mix of shit-zu and pomeranian and it looks like a gremlin with an extra chromosome <3
She wants another one - I would bloody love a pair of dalmations. I'm way too selfish.
Do you have any indication as to when you'll find out?
We left it too late to book a Luton. So we've got a big Transit. I'm past caring, but my boyfriend doesn't think all our shit will fit and it's causing HUGE arguments.
I'm working 12 hours today. Fuck.
Tell him I said that
"but andyvine said!!"
But agreed- not the end of the world if it comes to it.
Nicki, do you have lots of people on stand by at the new house to help unload? If so, that makes the prospect of a double trip much much less daunting.
But at 1.5 hours driving each way, it'd be a massive, massive pain in the arse.
that's just a daily commute for lots of people.
should be a complete no-brainer.
a completely pointless thing to worry about.
unloading, driving 1.5 hours back to Reading, loading it again, then 1.5 hours back. Six hours total, might even be more. Don't really wanna do that if I can help it.
I've worried before and then when I've loaded everything in it looks fucking empty, all my worldly goods rattling around in the empty transit husk.
Thanks MB. This is what I'm hoping. Though we've managed to move all the boxes and bags and furniture downstairs and it looks like LOADS.
I can't really do going out straight from work on the booze and not eating at my age.
The week's nearly over, where did it go?
Just about to make some coffee as an accompaniment to my apple and cinnamon danish.
I'd like a monkey too. Maybe we should have a timeshare.
(I just did a well done sign language at my computer screen for you)
So I know have somebody to practice with so should help a lot. Could do with someone telling me there are or aren't jobs at the end of a uni course in it at some point as I'm getting ever closer to having to decide whether to do one.
at the side of a hollyoaks rerun at 4 in the morning.
Get C4 a whole new cultured audience for early hours Hollyoaks reruns.
I used to work with Deafax charity for the deaf and hard of hearing. They're always looking for people to work with them (some paid, some unpaid). Let me know if you're interested.
Do they do anything up North? I'd be dead keen to do some voluntary stuff if so.
All over the UK and Ireland, they do have staff all over. I'll enquire. Obviously, not working as an interpreter but I went around all the deaf and hard of hearing schools in Scotland on a road show and that was ace and I think being around people who use BSL as their first language really is the quickest and best way to excel at sign language. I know you have to go to classes too - I'm not rubbishing that!
Well impressed, it's a fucking brilliant thing to learn.
Or actually anything like it.
As good a reason as any!
Stay in your shitty office job like the rest of us.
What a fucking tryhard
Someone needs to Jamie Summers him.
or more all in mouth to be more accurate.
if you know what i mean
I just found out I've got into Bristol!
Cracking city. Enjoy.
Time for you to start working on your dredds and get listening to Tricky. (only kidding, it's a great place and cracking uni. well done.)
Football tonight, final game of the season. Can't bloody wait. Might go out afterwartds if we win.
My day's work is done.
my talk at the albert hall, it's this evening. I've not done my prep yet, nto one thing. I'm terrified. Why am I doing this?
1. you are a serial procrastinator; but
2. leaving it late gives you adrenalin and makes you sharper and more intuitive.
Darling girl, you are so amazing and knowledgable and engaging, you will be fine (brill). Make a start on prep now and then reward yourself with a break. You're going to nail it x
I was at a 'party' which involved pizza and two beers a head. I was tucked up in my bed before 11 (yet I feel hideous for it...) get a bacon roll down you! Or have a breakfast beer. Today's your friday anyway, you gallivanting git.
sounds like a good 'party'
Fuck off Thursday.
cats can get acne
cats can get really gross whiteheady acne
cats can get really gross whiteheady acne that fidel has to squeeze / clean up
*really* hoping today is going to be an improvement on yesterday. ick.
"The whitehead part of a cat zit becomes very hard and when popped looks more like a little grain of rice"
They're right, too.
be thankful eh
Another tough day playing skyrim. I'e also been asked to paint 2 4" skulls 'with weird shit". Any ideas?! Im not weirdly inclined: http://i.imgur.com/pRonXCp.jpg?1
The Chocolate Factory is an after hours Hot Chocolate Cafe where you can get a 4-Sharer (basically a massive mug) with your pick of Marshmallows and Extras (Sprinkles etc) So me and my 'mate' Callum got one to share.
did callum go to the chocolate factory?
bought a fancy backpack
really need to replace my vans I think I'm just wearing them for nostalgic reasons now
I'm beyond tired. Last weekend has destroyed me. So thankful for the impending 3 day weekend of which I will be doing very little (apart from gigging and partying).
My bf moves in in less than 2 weeks. YEAH.
I can't leave my desk.
I want to go home.
And a missing vest under a seethrough top (fairly unusual)
Pics or GTFO!
definitely seems like the best thing to do in this situation
Are you hingover? What (who) did you do last night? need details! (and before fidel asks if email is not working, the answer is- correct. email is not working.)
He's actually made me nearly vom (not for the first time) this morning. He can suck it up. (tsaying this made me want to vom, too) (Yes I'm hingover)
Although I wish I was. If you were in London Lou I would take you for a liquid lunch.
This is my wedding gift to you.
Explain! Picutes or GTFO
can go to hell.
Spent my first night in M16. Dark.
Flat's fucking ace though. My room's an absolute tip, no idea where my passport is, I'm off to Beacons(fwheeled) festival tonight and then on my hollibobs lol next week. Great timing.
So much work to do, and that job that I was crying about on here last month has opened so I desperately need to apply for that. Might start another crisis thread just for Roy.
This is why I asked you if your surname was L, I play football with a Matt L who lives where you said you live but it's clearly not you.
Where were you then, creepazoid?
and thought I spied you
I was fucking SWEATY.
Stay outta Chorlton
P.S. your missus is a Ranger, ain't she?
gonna have a massive, offensive lunch.
I'm going to have oysters and a vast steak. (must try not to drink wine though.)
Might have steak for the starter too. I will be drinking wine. Lots of it. And loudly talking about how great I am.
very drunk at my desk. Probably will be fine.
and no wine. I find kind of queer.
but yes, me too. Busaba.
we're on box lunches atm. I've never prepped so many bloody salads.
Looking forward to the black cherry soda thing.
I have decided I'm going to Icelanic Airwaves.
Man Met still haven't replied. Tried ringing them; the lines are busy. FFS.
Ispi is your surname, right?
Didn't get in. Looks like I'm going to Sheffield Hallam. Might ring back in a week.
But don't be too disheartened. Sheffield is a fantastic city and I've heard nothing but good things about Sheffield Hallam. Well done!
the slow show last night, started work on a short story about an old man delivering leaflets for a kebab shop, watched fulci's city of the living dead til i fell asleep - this morning aint no thing - watching a documentary about polergeists til my train to cardiff then on to see patti smith and drink box wine.
going up to join the rest of the english nobheads in edinburgh
My first year at uni was the most fun I've ever had in my life. Enjoy it!
We have a task spreadsheet too so I can't even go off and do stuff under my own initiative. I'm not very good at pretending to look busy at the best of times, but since yesterday morning I've probably done about 90 minutes of actual work.
I'm so happy to have a job at the moment, but I'm so bored.
