How you all doing? Stood on a drawing pin this morning. Hurt pretty bad.
Talk to me.
i play MTG for 9 hours yesterday. it's happened. there are specific cars i want for my standard deck. i might go to a draft on thursday. fuck's sake
You're one of them now. When youre going to hang out at a games store friday night cos theyre releasing a new pack then you'll know theres no turning back! 9 hours is an insanely long time to play anything btw.
i've played a lot of other games for a lot longer than that. i only stopped because everyone else left.
the friday night thing here is in a pub rather than a store. none of them drink. it won't stop me though
it has a couple of moments but it's mostly just a very boring story
if i had a kindle moving would be a doddle. but then i'd have a kindle
I smoked a little bit over the weekend and I shouldn't have done.
I bought a saxophone in a pub on Friday for £100. Bargain! That makes up for the fact that I didn't get to see Half Man Half Biscuit because my friend forgot to put me on the guestlist.
Had my first Cravats rehearsal as a full band. It was SO GOOD. Frankie Coccozza was peering through the window, looking a bit confused.
got booted off the show for doing coke (I think).
because we were talking about frankie last night.
Are you like bffl?
It wasn't frankie.
Going to power through today fuelled by tablet and macaroon then eat some actual vegetables tonight while sorting through a million photos of my niece.
I was arrested for trying to smuggle a parsnip over the border once
but have massive audition this afternoon. I need to gargle and try to make my face look pretty, and I only have a few hours in which to achieve these twin unachiervable tasks.
I had a proper cracking weekend. Really didn't want it to end :(
I'd forgotten we're going to the beer fest in wandsworth common that night for a friends birthday.
Next time tho
Oh well. Drinks or sutin soon I reckon?
It sounded so good.
Why the fuck haven't I been before? Amazing stuff. Bus back to Forest Hill at that time only took like thirty minutes too, brilliant :D
Mainly because it does not to my knowledge serve breakfast.
I'm surprised you've not been there, PO. Right opposite Liverpool Street. Open 24/7. Lovely place.
I used to live just around the corner! there were always interesting (wasted) ooking people in there eating panninis and stuff when I danced past sparkled off my tits at 4am.
including businessmen going to work, and someone arriving for a birthday party that was going on. Felt a bit like an airport in terms of places where TIME DOESN'T EXIST.
Next time I'm in london (in a few weeks) I'm going there for all of my meals.
still annoyed i couldn't go. was told everyone bar nils wasn't great though and it was dead busy?
Everyone was brillo. I had a top evening. The queue to get in was horrendous but we got a free shot of vodka out of it. And it was FULL of plebs, nearly got into a fight at the bar. Once Nils' set finished pretty much everyone left though, leaving us enough room to dance for the rest of the evening.
I read their menu at my desk and a little drop of saliva gathered at the corner of my mouth.
I slurped to get rid of it.
People will wonder if I am in the throes of a stroke.
where they turn it up to maximum and you flail around and fly off? I would have FYI
but I had the jogging and running speeds pretty slow so I didn't :)
think hair straightening was an exercise in futility this morning
just refused a free flu jab...
and it always makes me smile imagining the people struggling. Obviously I hope theyre all ok and that.
no regrets though, those were some fantastic fights.
Thats the only thing that makes me wince
They look much cuter in hats
Had a huge curry on Friday night, then went to see Filth on Saturday which was AMAZING.
James Mcavoy is supposed to be great in it
I kind of fancy him even though he gets proper gross. I think its the beard/scottishness. Also, Jamie Bell is in it and he's FIT.
Does that mean the teams that are doing well right now have fans on here who aren't insufferably smug about victories?
currently in the queue for Glasgow 2014 tickets. going to buy for the Athletics event and a few others.
you shoudl get tickets for the boxing.
The site has been shite this morning.
Went to see So Young and New World at the cinema, won our first hockey match of the season, and slobbed around a bit.
Tindersticks this coming Friday too. Hurrah.
I am really tired. Had a crappy nights sleep, had stupid dreams and woke up every few hours.
Good weekend although ended up at The Afterdark on bnoth Friday and Monday despite vowing I would not go there at all this weekend.
3 day week! Still got no idea where my BF is taking me on Thursday though.... the not knowing is killing me!!!!
Going away for a long weekend innit.
played caesar iv a lot, it's rather difficult i keep overbuilding. Played pool friday night and managed to eek a frame out for an hour, which was quite funny
i need to make my face move later. I wonder if tea might help.
Also went to Alton Towers last weekend, which was the most scared I've ever been...
Yesterday we stayed in bed all day.
Today I am unhappy.
I did get sent a Christmas sampler, though.
I hate working so much, I think I might just go on the dole.
My boss is just back from alton towers with his kids and said his boys had 'a rare time'.
I really miss you :(
Tell me about your Christmas sampler.
Like, loads :(
It's 3 CDs and the first track on CD2 is Abba - I Have a Dream... Merry Christmas.
Can we please plan me coming to london please?
What about Christmas Retrospec weekend?
I have ot do to dublin on the first weekend of Dec but I'm ptherwise pretty free.
BUT friday the 13th sounds like the one. What could possibly go wrong *clutches lucky white heather and rabbits foot*
Going to have a Kinder Bueno to celebrate.
Everything a bit sour today. One month of this. Push thrrrrough
I'm telling you, voodoo dolls, never fails.
despite the fact that both Friday and Saturday night this weekend I was sat at home drinking wine alone, which is in no way sad.
I have a second cousin calling me daily to try and get me to work on a project for him I understand he wants things done and I said I'd try to help, but I do also work full time, and I'm getting to the point where I don't want to do it because he nags about it every day.
Are you excited about the move?
(or possibly tomorrow)
Once it has arrived I'll hand in the notice and begin negotiations on how long that period is.
The other company want me to start on November 18th.
I'm kind of excited, but also nervous, and there will be a considerable amount I will miss from here. It's just time for a change I guess.
It's natural tol suddenytl think thge grass is greener once oyu've devided ot leave somewhere. But think how unhappy you have been at times and how iot has affected ytour health. A new start will be good :)
and I'll be nearer London and able to commute from my hometown to work. Just that nervous time!
You're right though, and thank you very much.
What a mental weekend.
I resisted temptation to go out on Friday night, so Saturday I went to the gym, had my hair cut and then did something a bit weird HAPPENED.My mate on Facebook posted a photo of herself and some guy and I jokingly wrote "He's fit" to which he them PMed me on Facebook telling me that we had met previously and I had covered his face entirely in red lipstick a few years back. Anyway, he asked me out on a date early Saturday evening. He is fit, but knew it, we had a few drinks and it was pretty obvious he was only looking for a shag. So I left him and went to meet my friend Abs and we went drinking around Soho. After we parted, I drunkenly found some flowers on the floor and decorated a church gates in the middle of Soho. Anyway, some guy shouted my name and it was someone I haven't seen in years so that was nice. We stayed up drinking at mine and then went for breakfast yesterday morning.
Band practice last night, we sounded pretty ropey.
BY THE WAY MY BAND ARE PLAYING MADAM JO JO'S TONIGHT YOU SHOULD COME.
because I would 100% be at MJJs tonight to see you. Instead I am going to COATBRIDGE for dinner. COATRRBIDGE (it is not a nice place.)
I think I need to book a hoiday in the sun. Question is first or second weekend in November..... AND WHERE WILL I GO? (tenerife i think. Need a tan. Want to come?)
When are you thinking of going? This 'pale and interesting' thing has been going far too long for me.
The 11th would be better as I think songs about ducking is coming up to visit me wekend of the 8th.
You could be going one town over ;)
they have a chinese takeaway called "bon appetit"
which probably tells you all you need to know about my weekend.
probably can nip down after work.
I need to prepare for an audition and I have a hoe in my tights at the knee and perhaps more significantly NO VOICE.
She must be very petite.
And learn the art of mime.
and I have my voice back! (thanks hot tea.) Now I just need to get through today and tomorrow and life will be better.
CBA. C. B. A.
Thinly-veiled has been diagnosed with lupus. She was signed off for a week to recover from a flare up last week; went in today and her boss told her to 'reconsider her position' and, in two weeks, wants to know if she's leaving or not.
because that sounds absolutely hrorendous. your poor girlfriend. How long has she worked there?
She's been there about 18 months, I guess. We have a similar case at work with a guy who's dyslexic but we're doing the right thing and making reasonable adjustments to accommodate him. The bosses spoke to some lawyers about it so I'm going to ask them for initial thoughts.
Thanks for the offer though. Might be back in touch later in the week.
My friend Anthony is currently battling a case and he is convinced his ex-boss who sacked him is homophobic and she has, not out rightly, made jibes about his sexuality.
You cannot sack someone for being ill!
one of our contract staff quit their job at Tesco Head Office after his manager had asked him to choose between his job and his terminally ill wife.
Scum. Subhuman scum.
On Wednesday I was told that I might be made redundant on the last day of October (my birthday, jfc). On Friday I received a text from the lady I have have been seeing for the past year to tell me she has found another man (</3). On Saturday my washing machine broke down.
The weather here is bleak and dark, and it is raining torrentually.
You're in London too? hope things get better for you soon 'Vale
cheer yourself up? http://thevictoriainnderby.co.uk/website/events-2/
which has the band, date, venue and time.
that's really shit. hope things get better soon.
That is pure shit NV, I'm sorry. Do you want me to beat up the woman?
I haven't reached the 'Anger' stage yet, still stuck in 'Denial' at the moment.
Assuming there's no time limitations on your offer of violent assault, I'll bear it in mind. Thanks Love
knows their way around a Bosch Classix 6 1400 Washing machine.
she sounds like a stupid, weak, cowardly cunt.
Mate you're better off without an swt like that.
You're a good one. Hope things improve. <3
You're on of the good guys
Thanks. Still hurts at the moment but I know it'll get better.
Bless you all
in the coffee shop next to my flat.
not done anything yet today really, just pissed about.
Had mcdonald's breakfast on the way in to fill a gap. Their breakfasts are shit, don't know why I bother. Should have waited until lunch instead and had a burger and fries.
Wife is at the hospital for her chemo appointment, that's going OK though
Got a mate's dad's funeral to go to tomorrow :(
One of the roughest things I ever did was go to my best pal's dad's funeral so i very much feel for you. Tomorrow I get to go to the funeral of my friend's baby daughter. Yaaaaaay. I am definitely going to have to turn up a bit secretly drunk. Life is so shit.
not sure how people cope with stuff like that.
I just don't know how the hell my friends are coping with this.
I don't even know how it happened. Thank fuck I'm off work today.
I love living in a city.
Unfortunately got a terrible feeling of jealousy at the end of the night.
Need to have cbt or some shit. These feelings are poisonous. No good, man
Jealousy is the most stupid and destructive feeling in the world and wrecks otherwise brilliant relationships. it's stupid, and I'm sorry, but i also think it is self indulgent and immature.
My gf was just being normal, talking to my dogs and being a real social butterflyand I thought 'what if she thinks they're better than me'
My head just went.
I have major trust issues, but I am in a loving relationship with a wonderful person and I'm gonna do everything possible to not jeapordise that.
Don't fuck this up x
It's how you handle it. Easier said than done, sure, but just do your best to not let it consume you and don't let it destroy a good thing.
not sure if serious
It's something which people indulge and cultivate.
It's a horrible feeling though. And a negative one.
I get this horrible feeling in my stomach and feel like my happiness rug is gonna be pulled out from under me. Awful.
As mentioned above, my jealousy stems from my own insecurities (pathetic really) and my major trust issues (forever being let down by my dad)
But anyway, I could really love this girl...fuck it, I actually do! So need to address my demons for the sake ofus and my own sanity.
Feeling very positive about it, really.
Just remember that. Its your issues and your insecurites that you need to work through. Its just something you need to learn to deal with and handle. As soon as you make it her issue (i.e. accusing her of cheating), its hard to bounce back.
but I also think experiencing jealousy is entirely natural, letting it control you and dictate your actions towards other people, less so.
-Going to Brockley Market (what a gem!) and eating a delicious burger with candied bacon.
-Seeing a Lorca play near Old Street and spending the whole time trying to work out where I recognised one of the actors was from before realising she was the posh student who lived with Will and the punky blonde girl in Hollyoaks. The play was prettty good.
-Band practice with some top dogs yesterday.
We hadn't played for a while as oceanstorm Vikram went away to become a doctor but now he's back.
Fuck - that reminds me - some scottish girl who is lovely and has a wonderful voice sent me a cover version of one of my old songs! I'll send it to you.
(She recorded it just on an iPhone and she's so good that it sounds WAY better than the original :-/ )
this would kill two birds with one stone
My First Band was EMO and me as a bass & drum two-piece playing Muse covers. We pretty much paved the way for bands such as DFA 1979 and Lightning Bolt.
Send it to me.
Make a band! Put an ad on here. Or move to London.
It was not a DiSer.
I might. I'm rusty. I am also going to be moving hopefully soon, at least nearer London (probably back to Reading) as we previously discussed.
waiting for the written offer and contract. x
I'm sure you'll be a great asset.
I'm nervous, and a tad apprehensive, but I guess that's just because I've been with one company for over 5 years.
It makes you more alert. It's a step in the right direction. Five years with the same company came make you complacent and comfortable.
Blue Jasmine was great, just missed double-billing straight into Rush which was a shame. Some mexican-looking dude had had the nacho guy cover his popcorn in jalapenos. Dude.
Lovely band practice with lovely band people and a gig sunday countered otherwise a gross, consumerist weekend. Hurrah.
broke and drank on both Friday and Saturday, which is annoying, but had a great time both evenings so won;t be too hard on myself.
Booked my plane tickets on Sunday. BOOM.
Here, there and everywhere on friday night.
Sat met me new nephew whose name is Paco! :)
Opening of the barfly on sat night, good to be back, sunday roast at the folks last night.
Watching downton last night, quite fancy Mary! And having forgot about her till i read something in the papers yesterday i fancy Rachel Khoo!
I have lots to do this week.
Downstairs wasn't open
couple more texts back and forth but that's about it
