I am consoling myself by being grumpy in the office for at least 15 minutes. Otherwise life is okay. There is hope on the horizon it would appear but you never quite know.
you need a life change of some sort. I like you, fyi
But it's two weeks more to get to that point, so now I just gotta power through Silks!
manchester is too good. can't wait to be back
i had a brief quiet moment over the weekend and used it to find a few jobs to apply for so tonight i have to update my cv with the last 6 months and get cracking
I was free on saturday as I didn't go to london. I want you to go back in time and meet up with me please!
Feel really refreshed - binge drinking ftw (not really kids).
Today I start my last week in this role, so will be a mixture of really busy and totally complacent. Then tonight I have to book a holiday and do boring life admin.
met up with PN, loui and MITS on Friday for some good beer, Saturday when to Brighton and had more good beer, and yesterday, had a cracking Sunday lunch at a pub then saw Rush, which was excellent.
Considering how grim this week is likely to be, it was good to have all that behind me.
Myself and PN ended up in the 12 bar. Oh Lordy.
friends from Texas flew in on friday, so had a curry and beer with them and chatted about the old times and stuff. was really nice. woke on saturday and took them into town for lunch and met up with some other friends. went home, washed and showered and then headed into town for my UK wedding reception. got quite drunk and did a bit of chatting to everyone. had shots of goldschlager.
Naturally, therefore, I'm playing GTA V. I am unlikely to move from this position until my boyfriend returns from work. Though I should think about going to the gym at some point.
They've already replaced me so I haven't got anything to do. Just sat at my desk drinking coffee.
update: going to wetherspoons at 12pm don't judge me
Theyre well jelly
Really good but slightly strange weekend.
Saw cat_race by surprise twice, which was nice.
Got sunburnt yesterday. On the 6th of October. JFC.
I was indeed in the Hillary Step on Saturday night.
WHO ARE YOU?!
Pretty disturbing stuff.
"Did you throw away a copy of fader and an empty IPA bottle yesterday?"
He does know where I live and what my bin looks like, so anything's possible.
I'm working from home today because a carpenter is coming to build shelves in our spare room for all the CDs, and in the sitting room for the books and records. I'm well excited.
Or at least hired joeymahone to do it.
(he hired someone to make his too)
I've put shelves up once. It wasn't pretty.
i think i am so close to going home sick.
I'm an uncle. Congratulations to me.
have you met the baby yet? I'm terrible at meeting babies.
Babies are pretty crap at this stage. Just blobs of organic matter that occasionally cry. Only get interesting when they're old enough to be taught swearwords.
Lucky old baby.
how happy are you with the name of the baby?
Middle name: hmmmm
Newly invented compromise surname: oh dear oh dear oh dear
(I'm loving being an aunt, it's the best thing ever.)
Been given the same first name I was going to have got if I'd been a girl. Interesting.
not even joking.
Lovely Italian in Brixton Village on Fri, Song Que on Saturday and Hawksmoor plus a decadent Patisserie Valerie cake on Sunday. I am now extremely poor albeit richer for the experience.
Saw Chimerica too. Really, really recommend it. Was only £10 and our seats weren't too bad. It's so bloody glossy for a play, if there isn't a film adaption produced by and starring Bradd Pitt within 5 years I'll eat my shirt.
housemates birthday on Friday, so I stayed up late drinking and chatting to folks until the early hours of the morning. Had a splitting headache for most of Saturday but still managed to drag myself down to Tottenham Court Road to nerd it up at the forbidden planet.
Uncles surprise birthday party on Sunday which thankfully involved no drinking.
was just tidying my room, bent over to pick something up off the floor and have done something really painful to my lower back. i think i need to start doing some form of exercise to prevent becoming 60 sometime in the near future.
as popular DiSser <redacted> was assaulted in the street and Im the only witness. CHEERS <redacted>! In other news Im playign football manager every day and on my last week of applying for ok jobs. When it comes to next Monday Im going all out on everything. Crrrraaaap.
Court will be fun. I'll probably be there too, in my goon.
woops. Awesome, Can you escort me into the room and swish around so I look like a hardened crim?
If they think I'm your counsel then they might not even put you on the stand.
currently attempting to prostitute myself to a virtual random on twitter to get a plus one
with a special access code or sth. bastards.
i HAVE FIXZZY RIBENA.
I am jel. the vending situation in this place is DARK.
I only let myself go to the vending machine on mondays. they have pot noodles and twixes in there too. and porridge!
are you going out for a nice dinner tonight?
doing the Grain Store, which looks nice but not too froufrou. pretty excited.
it might actually be working. not sure how to proceed.
Surely true? I mean it was big when it came out but until Reservoir Dogs' soundtrack became massive I think it had been pretty much forgotten. Nowadays it's a staple and I think Tarantino is the cause.
Just seems a bit odd.
Like, songs I had played at my wedding that I liked most or songs that your average wedding crowd might actually enjoy?
I think AC/DC and RATM were both firm floor-fillers. bamos broke a toe dancing to Killing in the Name (we all took our shoes off, but I can't really remember why).
Loving the answers so far. Wish Id been invited/10
Probably not enough pop and too much guitar music for it to have pleased the Music board's popists.
Got semi proposed to.
We need to catch up!
He said he wanted to marry me. So as it wasn't an actual question I decided I probably didn't need to say anything.
You living a million miles away is turning me into an oversharer.
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?
(He is very hot).
You either want to be proposed to by a guy with a full-on erection or whose mind is on you and not his balls, surely?
Today is going to be painful. Very painful.
No more monday morning blues for another whole week!
and woke up just before 5pm, which is too much
Dear God, please grant me the strength to pass through this day.
Twice, actually. She was supposed to come out on saturday too...
There is an incredibly intense/sexy/disturbing photo of me hidden somewhere on that site. Your challenge is to find it and then photoshop it.
However I don't know how to use Photoshop, but I shall look for you regardless. It must be pretty amazing living in Paris.
It's alright though.
I didn't like though tbh.
I want it as my screen saver.
What's it worth to you?
Quiz toneeet. Then reality bites back.
it was in a pub which was SO GOOD. I ate loads.
Team morale is really really low. Not sure how to perk people up? Might make a cake tomorrow for everyone.
Yesterday all I ate was sausage roll, pastie, pies and chips. It was amazing (<3 greggs) but my god I really need some vegetables.
I get this if I don't eat regularly. Have you got blood sugar issues? Take care x
I was in and out of hospital so much two years ago and no real answer, they did tell me what they thought it was eventually and it was pretty scary but now they think they were wrong. So I'm a mystery! It's ok mostly but when it gets bad my eyes do this freaky thing of dilating over and over really quickly, it's weird to look at in the mirror, like a bad trip
I hope it settles down and buzzzes off really soon so you can have your non fainting head back x
(I had actually thought you'd said you pinned it down to a gluten allergy or something. Damn.)
whatever it is I feel better if I don't eat gluten, or cucumber! But that's not related to my weird head stuff. Weird head is still very much in the picture.
I need to get a pet so badly. do you think i'd be able to keep a budgie alive?
What kind of cuddly animals can i leave for days at a time that won't die?
Decided to take a tent with me so I could get up early to beat the crows to the best onions, forgot the tent poles so had to use a Scarecrow's arms as a makeshift tent pole, this back fired as because then there was no scarecrow, by the time I had woken up all the crows had ate the onions and I was left with none.
Had a lovely but tiring weekend and yesterday had a nice afternoon playing football and then chatting and hanging out with people
by a mate who (turns out) is a really bad drunk. came from nowhere and took a chunk out of my shoulder, so I lamped him. no-ones talking about him being a weirdo who bites people without provocation, just how violent i am. that's the first punch i've thrown since about 2005.
Are you ok? have you had it checked out?
Yeah no all OK thanks!. He apologised and stuff, there's just a big big bruise. And one on his cheekbone, BAM.
