brb, moving to Japan.
(but, you know, do feel free to discuss what you're up to even if it is infinitely less exciting)
need to get a few washes on the line. got nuttin to wear, maaaaaaan.
got a date tomorrow. congratulations. thanks for your kind words.
put too much in the machine - bedding + pillows
as a result....the water inlet is blocked
net result - dry cleaning
Cannot be arsed with work.
things like "eat less terribly" or "that hour of learning you used to do before starting work? do that again". hopefully it'll stick, but I am pretty terribly for actually sticking at things like this, something will annoy me and I'll eat a pack of Oreos in half a day instead of a real lunch. fingers crossed though.
I may have finished off a packet of oreos already today. there were only two in there in fairness, and at least now they're gone and aren't mocking me.
I did my hour (and a bit) of learning too, so a successful morning so far. then I checked my emails and a few things had kicked off, so been flat out since. ergh.
then finish painting the bedroom, watch breaking bad and drink beer.
i got notre damn recently as well. havent managed to give that a go yet though
Probably going to do a bit of work.
Busy weekend at the house. Looking good though
Might go for a run later
Bad: it's to do a five hour past paper.
(off on Wednesday and Thursday to go to MANCHESTER y'all.)
Weekend was okay, mostly put together a stupid amount of Ikea furniture which was very dull, but at least the flat looks better now.
whereabouts are you off to?
My room will be literally right next to the Imperial Palace gardens.
I went to Japan last year for 12 days and wish I had spent more time in Kyoto.
Well done you - what an experience!
Productivity is at an all time high
and then going on a bit of an extended honeymoon - taking in a month in Spain, 11 days in Moscow/St Petersburg, Trans-Mongolian express to Beijing, week there, fly to Melbourne, spend a month or so there (including Boxing Day Test), then head to Sydney where the soon to be wife has been offered a job!
do a fred about the t-s express if you can be bothered.
I am so very, very jealous.
Will definitely meet up for a quick game of Age of Empires II.
We'll be there for about a week 12th Dec until 21st, when we fly off to Brisvegas.
Obviously family stuff will be taking preference so we may not have time but I'm guessing most of our friends and family will actually be working so more chance of grabbing you in the daytime if you're about.
Just keep us informed :)
i am not getting married next Saturday and then embarking on an awesome honeymoon. Congratulations on your wedding and your tremendous follow up holiday!
I don't actually think James Milner is that bad.
Had a great weekend though- went to Skegness which is always an experience.
My eye feels like it has soap in it...?
depends on the book
My friend moved to Japan a couple of years ago and he says he'll never leave. Good luck!
I've been in work for one hour and already I feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown.
dragged myself into work anyway, will probably regret it.
got those quittin job butterflies
might do it tomorrow instead.
got to do it quick, don't dwell on it or you'll shite out of it
because that really conveys how unworried you are about it. Cowards do it on a friday night.
Thanks for the advice though.
To research their consumer ombudsman and reported back on how to protect Scottish consumers from unfair practices in distance selling. Just shows how great my life is. Enjoy Japan, pm xxx
why does monday always have to happen
Me and chintzy and fappable went out to MEAT bar last night and ten we hung outwith our porn star friend last night and her bouncer. It was... an unusual night, japes please come and rescue me they are trying to makwe tme to go to a meeting and I want tyo die.
I went out very timidly on saturday and had to spend most of yesterday curled in a ball crying on the floor.
don't know how you do it
I am wearing tights today for the first time in months because my lergs are black and green <3
sure you will have a great time. All the best.
im working. had a shitty weekend and am counting the days til i go back home for a week. gonna be AWESOME. football training tonight will HURT, though.
she used to steal from the stalls in the market and then go door to door selling them. my gran worked as a seamstress from the age of 14 in a factory that over looked the lane (not sure which building though) and the boss used to give my gran a heads up when the polis were raiding the lane, or if my gran's mum was lifted he'd let my gran go home early to make tea for her younger sister and brother.
So a pretty good one.
Trying to figure out any way I can get a job and get out of here. It's destroying me.
Well it was awesome but I don't think it'll have a good outcome. HF decided she liked me :/
Have you heard from Lego? Could you just pack it in and go back to Twy for a while you look for something else?
What happened? PM me or go on FB/Skype. (or text me).
If it's the HF I think it is that's all good, right? I need to know context. Why would the outcome be negative?
Nothing yet, said it can take up to 8 weeks. I could maybe, but I have my loans that I need to pay so can't afford to take too long out which is annoying. If Brooke finds something back there then we can just go for it really, but until one of us has a decent enough job, we can't afford to jack it in. :(
she's a woman now?
tasted kinda like pear
Part of a London campaign with all things that are London that I've helped organise, with bands, routemaster buses, Rolling Stones shop, and Boris. Possibly the highlight of my career thus far.
Got my valium for flying too.
see you soon kids
or at least they had better be because I'm wearing one
is not flattering to my tee shirt tan
it looks better than you would assume, which is lucky because i'm aware that sounds mental
that outfit sounds pretty "dilbert"
so it's just 'old dilbert'/
so... there's that.
even if i go home and shut my hand in the door to feel something that's still okay right? as long as i'm helping.
:D best friends :D
but not got anything lined up and still not actively looking for jobs. this can't end well.
Ended up buying snowboard boots instead.
Felt a bit down on Sunday so booked an expensive off-road biking course.
What have I done!
and now i have been referred to a doctors godd
I hope his eyes are ok.
it meant to say GOD
got keratoconus apparently. not really sure what that means
its a bit daunting but i looked online and it didnt seem so bad
As a result I've been crying all day and it's horrifically embarrassing and I just want to stop but my body won't let me ffs.
but yeah tillance lovely, i mean this in the nicest possible way- get a grip.
I call it.
I don't really know where I'm going with this.
Reckon we've cured her. High 5!
NICE ONE DAVE.
it can't be long until you get to go home now.
Thanks for being so sweet though.
Then I saw today that my e-ticket said 1 bag, and the bit on the website was about tickets issued on/after 6 May (mine was 29 April arghhh). Phoned to check and the woman said categorically that I could take two bags, even though my e-ticket only said one.
Then my friend on the same flight phoned and spoke to a man who told her that she could only take one.
I feel your pain.
Just behave like and adulta and phone them and ask definitively.
Christ, is everyone a fucking momo today? (just me?)
But then I've failed to quit my job like a total fanny.
Maybe another chest bump would help?
(are you a bit scared? I haaate handing in my notice. Just take a deep breath and do it at about ten mins before you leave. then run away giggling.)
I *will* feel bad because I like this place.
Truth is I haven't actually got the paperwork through from the new place yet so I'd have been a bit of a dick to quit today.
do NOT do a thing until you have an irrevocable written offer from your new place. My old boss from three years ago who was a complete clunge (he was called gary) resigned from my old firm on the basis of an offer which had been made to him 'subject to parent company board approval'. Guess who got blackballed at the PC board meeting/ (i have never laughed so much in my life as when I found out about this and i genuinely am not even remotely a mean person.)
He made me get into voodoo.
and they gave me a completely unambiguous answer. my friend rang and asked and they gave her an unambiguous but completely opposite answer. so essentially, they don't know. which means i can choose to risk taking an extra bag to the airport tonight or not.
and yes, i know this isn't the most catastrophic thing to happen ever. but this is a fucking internet forum. i can actually register annoyance at things that aren't famine and natural disasters. the whole point of 'social' boards is trivial shit :-/
then tell them you were told you could take the extra luggage./ Or pay for it.
Also, you are taking this way too seriously darling. I'm only yanking your chain. It's a really exciting and scary time for you but you're going to be fine and I can't wait to hear all aobut your adventures.
I just got all excited after I sorted Tillance's life out and I think it went to my head.
I somehow need to get out of the office and into the pub. I cancelled my SOCO guys btw.
(yes my film is BRIDESMAIDS 2)
is this why i gt texts at 1.15am asking me about the identity of glaswegian pro-wrestlers? did you have a good weekend?
Were you able to shed any light on his identity?
good lord that hurt.
footy training tonight too = :(
Im dying of death
and went to meet jules for a white wine. I feel amazing now. you probably need some wine, maybe some crisps and nuts. I had a cashew and choked a bit on it. My mouth tastes oniony. So hot.
Were just saying how much we should've got some booze actually.
Im sitting here with my sunglasses on and my coat hood over my head like a cape.I keep asking chintz questions but then I realise she's got her headphones in.
I'm just about to leave work and go buy the stuff for dinner. I can't believe I'm cooking in this nick (going to get a scarlet johansson at the tiki bar first, to a) motivate me and b) reward me for being a good girl today. I hope your journey is going quickly! x
Is it tonight yet?
no, thought not (shutup).
I don't know what will
Just found out i'm having to manage someone i really don't want to manage ffs. I said 'nope' and then got told there wasn't an option to say no.
Then top it off with a nuggy every Friday. Going to make you cry every day.
Guys help me he's a psychopath.
but the connotations were too far reaching
he's done you there s_a_d.
This is twice in less than 48 hours. Done me like a kipper both times.
(eurghm bit weird, ex boyfriend and one of my closest friends, hmmmmm.... WWLL YOU JUST KISS AND GET IT OVER WITH, GIRLS.)
The signs were all there, but hes got a friggin girlfriend. He could have mentioned having a girlfriend whos from france once in a while.
I was ASKED out last night. By a real person not from the internet. How do you like THEM apples?
Where does she go to school?
Not even a euphemism.
and get someone to stroke your hair at the same time
I was just thinking the chicken will maybe be a bit easier because i can bung it in the overn and then lie on the roof and chainsmoke whilst getting my hair stroked. The lamb is going to require stirring and that. I want to be maximum horizontal this evening.
i am attempting to make a peach BBQ sauce to put on ribs this evening. could go well. could be gross.
(I LOVE IT!)
with my questionable food-based sexuality (paging fuzzy).
BUT: look. It's not just a bizarre fruit dish. It's BBQ sauce invented in Georgia coz all they farm out there is millions of peaches (peaches for me)
Me and the girls had THE BEST MEAT plattter last night at MEAT. And picklebacks (C and I had chilli and coriander brine and L had SILVERSKIN ONIONN BRINE> WHAT A TOTAL LEDGE.) when you come to glasgow on tour that is where you must must must go.

I'm going to buy some kind of peach pudding for my dinner guest. PEACHES. I might just bake some with cinnamon actually...
and they're not much to see. turns out macaroons are fucking hard to get timings right in the oven. but they didn't go gooey or fall apart so i feel like i'm doing ok!
Had a tour of the new Coronation street set that is being built in Trafford Park
Was shown around the new Air Traffic COntrol tower at Manchester Airport (including watching the A380 land)
Guided tour of the pavilion at Old Trafford, including a stroll out onto the square to get a view of the frontage.
Looked around the new council building in Rochdale.
All in all a decent day at work.
I've just realised I might have a spare ticket as my mate is flaky as fuck and I suspect he'll bail on me.
(where is sheeldz, he must be going)
Cahir is frank's guitar tech
Looking forward to getting poleaxed with them tomorrow. it's not going to be a good week for my detox.
