I won a burrito on twitter last night.
What are your plans for the weekend?
This weekend I will mostly be studying. For three days.
Beat THAT, other morning thread posters.
Tomorrow: London double header
and the start of the Premiership rugby season
You're an Irish fan right?
Aye, an Irish fan. I'm a bit upset that I won't be able to make any of their home matches as I no longer live in Reading actually. Been going to almost every home match I can for the past 3/4 years.
I keep waking up with the theme from Sharky and George in my head so I think I must be having recurring dreams about it.
As today will be long.
However the weekend is attempt 2 at baking, band practice and flat pack furniture so it's all good :)
Msmonipenni and I are attempting macaroons! I saw yours last week - they looked good!
This Sunday is probably some more macaroons (violet/white chocolat) but mainly one of these fuckers http://chocolateandzucchini.com/archives/images/sweet/religieuse.jpg weird looking little cakes but fun.
i think it will be ok.
Stepbrothers DVD in the background
Kick back, and relax. I hope you do alright c_r
but y'know, we'll see
i think i'm losing my mind
to the value of 'internet'
Just had a bowel of cereal at work. Its Friday and I can't be arsed and I don't think I can't handle drinking later. just want to sleep. I even had to wake myself up by blowing my hairdryer in my face
Then looking at the word and thinking "ha would be funny if I wrote bowel" but still read it as bowl. Im not fit to be teaching today.
can't find my swimming costume tho >:(
not forking out £80 to buy one at the airport. i'll just have to go nude.
Are they made out of tiger skin or something?
I just guessed that price. I highly doubt they have pleb shops at Glasgow airport. This isn't Glasgow Prestwick.
*not sarcasm, genuine interest
BOOZE, BOOZE, BOOZE!
didn't end well
tonight I am supposed to be going out again (no chance sadly), weekend I will mostly be dead I think. or asleep. either is good.
Can't wait for my first look at it. Hopefully there's going to be nice stuff. House booze
Tomorrow. House stuff, food, pub/house booze
bit of BOOZE
but then weekend! A friend is coming to stay for the weekend, so that should be good - although the weather forecast is pants :(
to bring her swimsuit etc so we could make the most of the weather and the beach, Dammit!
"Annoying because I told her
to bring her swimsuit etc so we could make the most of the weather and the beach, Dammit!"
You stole my thunder.
enjoy your break!
I need to send an email to someone who I can't find in the address book, because she uses a different surname nowadays (and i can't remember the old one, because why would I) and cunting outlook doesn't work when searching by forename.
This is literally insurmountable. Is it home time yet?
It's likely it'll be automatically forwarded
This will bring up a list of everyone with that name.
I found an old email with her cc'd in.
Pretty exciting stuff I'm sure you'll agree.
What a thrill.
It's the flat I own with my ex. It's up for sale and she's moved out now to Chester so she doesn't have time to come and do it and every cleaning company we've spoken to have been pissy about it coz they can't be arsed going up to the third floor so I'm just going to do it myself. She's given me the money but it's still a massive ballache. The thing is, the few weeks before she was moving out the dog knew something was up and started dirty protesting all over the fucking place. Obviously she cleaned up after the dog but you know, the carpets need cleaning.
After that, beers
It is £30 for 48 hours and £20 for the soap and once you get the hang of it, it works incredibly. Utterly changed the flat we were vacating earlier this year. It cleaned them to a brand new looking shine, seriously, and the flat suddenly looked so much better. The carpets hadn't been cleaned in years I reckoned, so they looked a million times better than when we moved in.
They are heavy but worth it. It cleaned up after our pissy 6 month odd almost-house trained puppy really good.
I've done it before, doesn't stop it from being a pain in the arse though. But yeah, it's pretty satisfying/terrifying when you pull it back and see the actual carpet colour underneath what you thought wasn't that mucky carpet
you got some sort of Walter White operation going on the QT?
my action plan can go fuck itself in the cock.
At least I'm practicing with my supergroup tomorrow.
feel sad :(
you'll be alright. Use the weekend to be reflective
normally it's a good thing when you're able to hand your notice in.
how long's your period?
My black eye is completely out of control and people are gasping when I walk past them. I'm had two cheeseburger meals from bk because GIVE A FUCK. This weekend I'm going to cook kleftiko, and haggis (not together) and put a lot of ice on my face and hope that my understudy doesn't nick my role when I turn up on set on Sunday morning still with a massive keeker.
and today it looks even worse and it THROBS. But thanks for asking ,Dis, THANKS A BUNCH.
Because there is no justice in this world. (Was dancing in my flat and didn't notice a spillage on the floor and fell face first onto my coffee table.) It is bright bright purple. I have to start filming for my film on sunday and I don't know how the fuck they will be able to cpover it. I've warned makleup and told them not to tell casting as I don't want to get sacked from this. SHIIIIIIT. It also seems quite dry- it's literally drinking in the vaseline I put on it.
Gonna play some pre eats petanque and cricket. the gilrs can fix the salads, innit.
Finish off with some indoor golf. Best party game ever
i guess you learni something every day, or so.
though might need to factor in transport costs, net spend, wages etc. Should get mala on the case.
Seems quite cheap.
Also, week after next, pub quiz?
it's from some research i am doing atm and tbf the 610k rate is based on a three year contract Ensco have with Total, so i imagine for just one day it'd be quite a bit more
oh yes - a triumphant return! How was holiday?
Iranian weddings are cool. No booze though.
Also slightly ruined by the 11 1/2 hour delay to my return flight, which was not the dream.
Excellent, I'll stick you in the diary.
For a few reasons I'm not even slightly organised about this but have no problem with it. New rent is going to be about half of old rent, so big win. Big, big win. Big.
I'm back from Dusseldorf with work. I am never ever going to get used to flying/like it, I were a wreck both ways. I asked the air hostess if the wings were meant to look like that (they kept going up and down) and then proceeded to grip onto the seat the whole way. An my seat were right by the window both ways.
I would thoroughly recommend anyone to go to Dusseldorf. Everyone is really friendly & relaxed and the Dusseldorf dark ale is amazing. It's a really pretty place too.
I got drenched walking to work this morning. I look like a mutt.
If the wings didn't move up and down a bit, the plane would snap in half, fall to the earth, and everyone would die.
So it's good that they bend a bit.
brother told me once when he was learning to fly but I can't really remember.
It's amazing how many people thought I was German. Even when my broken German was, well, broken.
The Koenigsalee looks too pretty to actually exist in real life.
a. a large, comfortable second hand office chair
b. maps to cover my big bare white walls
c. 4-6 ft square pieces of cloth with psychedelic/garish/comforting patterns (just what would these be called?).
Rewrite my C.V.
Dance around my room to Matmos.
Sort my sleeping pattern out.
All terribly exciting, I'm sure you'll agree.
I did it a few weeks ago, incredibly boring.
the van is coming at 8am!
unfortunately I don't own my new flat yet!
So today I'm hoping that the solicitor sorts out this plan he's promised to make sure we don't end up homeless. Hmm.
I love living in Forest Hill. Like, properly. I've seen more foxes in the last couple of weeks than I have ever in my life before.
it's so green! We saw a fox and a bluetit in our garden when we went to visit on Monday.
Nice. I wanna buy a bird feeder for our garden.
As in meat bacon? Naughty.
Then I am going out for food/gig/some weird squat where they won't let you take in coke because of caffeine but weed is fine.
Yesterday I found out that my Mum had a heart attack. I do not feel good about this.
when, what? Is she ok?? xx
I'm just in total shock. We've got to go back to the hospital today.
Are you at work or home? Might be a good idea to stick at home with you dad
Yeah I'm at home - mainly because I just can't focus on anything!
She's okay - they let her home yesterday after her blood pressure went down (it was 238/120!!) and they've given her tablets. She basically has to have shit loads of tests now. It's so hard being practical and together, but she's so scared I'm keeping my emotions (and you KNOW how emotional I am) to my bedroom. It's just all really surreal.
now that she has had this bad thing happern to her, they willl be all over her to make sure she is on the right meds and is mnonitored ergularly and treated. The people who die fomr heart attaclks are generally ther ones who didnt even know they had a heart issue. Once an issue is indentified it can be controlled. It's lovely that you're being strong for the family, but allow yourself ot have a bit of a meltdown now and again because you're going to be in shock- you shoud just feel however you feel without having to justify it. Please give her a massive hug from me and to your dad too xxx
Yes. This is exactly what I said to her. They're doing absolutely everything they can, which is reassuring - and now she's had a warning I think it might change the bad habits. But FUCK, right? Sarah and I are just like, what? Still can't get my head around it. All will be fine, I'm sure. I absolutely will send your love, please accept my live in return xxxxx
They'll be monitoring her and making sure everything is okay. She'll also know one signs as well so if anything feels odd, she's more likely to get it checked/ pay attention to it.
I'm sure all will be okay :) let me know if you need anything/wanna chat xx
Thanks so much <3 xx
I think maybe a lot of rum tonight will sort me out xx
and it's not like we know each other, but I hope you are ok, and I hope she's ok. x
Don't worry - no need to say anything! I'm just venting because I don't actually want to talk about it. Thanks though :) x
If you're friends on here are anything to go by, you have a great support network, and I'm sure everything will be ok, doesn't make it any less scary though. x
and on the way out, at low tide, trod on something called a weaver fish. Didn't know what they were before yesterday. I fucking do now.
I think creakyknees has also "met" a weaver fish.
It's quite cool! Are you ok?
but last night I experience 2 hours of unbelievable, unprecedented agony. In summary, weaver fish: the biggest twats in the sea.
My plan is to never go in the sea again. Thinking about it, it's not really my scene anyway.
Also some guys from my gym are competing at an MMA thing on the weekend so I might stop by that too.
so my ergonomic mouse mat is giving me grief. NOT HAPPY.
Fucking hell Ben, this is low, even for you
Today's one they're taking it all the way back to Plymouth so I called up
And was like NOOO DONTRRTTTR
TOMORROW - DIABLO 3
SUNDAY - DIABLO 3
