where's the best place to buy a pack of A4 paper?
I really like Call the Midwife.
date cancelled due to shingles?! is that just too ridiculous to be real or too ridiculous to not be real? fuck knows, hahaha. shit illness though.
what an infection. Still got my shingles scar from when i was a kid.
but then it's worse when you're an adult if the virus sticks around or something? and that's why kids have chicken pox parties?
just a bit like it. shingles is herpes lol
the virus is the same as chickenpox and causes that at first, and then once you have chickenpox you always have the virus in you. that's why you "can't" get chickenpox again (though, of course you can).
it then can reappear as shingles.
and it is herpes. :D
that's ok though
The coldsore herpes is a different one
it was unbearably shit. and i still have nerve damage from it. shingles = shit
unless she really doesn't want to see you ever. Because tath's not the sort of thing tat you can just recover for in time for, say, a date on Tuesday. She's going ot be out for a week or so.
So, as a postponement, it wouldn't work as a lie. As an outright cancellation, surely she'd just say that she had changed her mind and wasn't wanting to date, or whatever it is that epopel say. (I dunno, I am not very good at this stuff).
i'm just asking the tough questions AS USUAL. we'll see. going to spend my day reading about shingles and seeing if i can catch it
You can only catch chickenpox which can then lead to shingles later in life.
I am extremely high risk of getting it, so don't let her near me (on one view- one another view, I obviously have amazing immunity to the virus as I've come into conbtactwith lots of people who have or carry it and have never developed it. Go my immune system!)
I bought Eurostar tickets to ANY BELGIAN STATION this morning. Gonna go to Bruges in February for a long weekend. Gonna drink beer, eat chips, mussels and chocolate. Bliss.
(if you dont mind me asking)
so £132 altogether. There's some deal on ATM where you can get £54 returns to Brussels, Paris or Lille, but it's a bit more to any station in Belgium (still cheaper than normal I think?)
enjoy pendulum in Belgium!
but I get the impression it's really expensive when you're there.
Maybe I'm mixing it up with Switzerland...
certainly nothing like most places in scandernayyeh
i usually go to ryman for these things.
I watched Olympus Has Fallen last night. It was not great. Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart are both really rubbish, Morgan Freeman looked like he was asleep for most of it, and it wasn't nearly as much fun as White House Down.
Finding out they're making a sequel called London Has Fallen, centred around a terrorist attack on the funeral of the British Prime Minister (really) was actually way more entertaining than the film.
today is my last planning theory seminar, which is sad because i've really enjoyed it.
then i'm going to finish my essay for it, i'm about 80% there. it's about Housing Market Renewal/Pathfinder and community land trusts as right/left responses to housing affordability issues. I've had loads of fun writing it.
I have another essay to do after this about investment theory which is really zzzzzzz. It's due next Friday but I've got four clear days from tomorrow so I'm hoping to get the bulk of it done by Monday. Weekend schmeekend.
gonna see the mighty LONDON (nee Romford) RAIDERS take on the titans that are the CHELMSFORD CHIEFTAINS
hockey is awesome
that premise: there is a terrorist attack on the funeral of the british prime minister and the US have to save the day makes me really really angry for some reason. :D
We should strike first, send Tom Hardy and James McAvoy or someone over to do Obama.

I mean morning sheeldz.
boss is away today and tomorrow, but still got a load to do. woe. I also have about 0 money to last me to pay day. excellent.
Looking forward to several impromptu trips to to see friends over the next few months.
I look forward to being the least nerdy person in the room for a change.
Might get a Subway before it. Oh what a night!
Busy day today. Gonna have to do some work. Shit one.
all our paper is just in massive piles next to the printer, atop the baby seal and albino tiger pelts that line the floor of our oil-money funded gold printer hall.
And by "ATP" I mean a "3.5hr train journey that will end with us within 5hrs drive of Camber Sands" :S
I've massively broken the back of the deal that I'm workign on, anmd broken a few people on the other side along the way,. which means I think I'm going to have a couple of relatively relaxing days of work to recover. I had mentally set aside this weekend for working, but i htink I'mactually going to be able to take it OFF, which means I can go to pixies on Friday night and then maybe go to York on Saturday.
I am so excited. I might see if big jules wants to go for a gluwein at the xmas market at lunchtime. SQUEE.
the french guy on the waffle stand is a dickhead in the greatest way.
I am so excited waffles and hot sausage and french guy and gluwein for lunch.
Bit of Amaretto in there, Charles? Don't mind if bloody well do pal! Merry Christmas!!!
....actually that might be feasible. What time you heading there for?
i mean location, not the company
I'm going to head there now- BJ is drafting a document and will catch me up.
I am really proud of myself this week, as a really important target client i've been chasing around edinburgh for the last three months has finally given us the mandate to be the lawyers for his company, AND he called up the head of my firm to tell him it was 100% down to me.
I've been feelng completely and uitterly shit about myself and my abilities recently so I needed this week's triumphs so much. I slept like a baby last night (yeah, screaming bawling and covered in piss and shit).
Can't wait for the weekend now :D
I want to get my nose pierced again but my boyfriend doesn't like nose piercings. I should just get it done, right?
Pub quiz at Leconfield again tonight. Yay.
I'm gonna do it this weekend. THANKS.
Even better, get one in middle of the two nostrils.
It'll make me look like a bull.
Just realised how much this sounds like I want him to do a big poo for me. He's not in the office yet so we'll see how that pans out.
Early finish today and off work tomorrow. Meeting my mum later, looking forward to finding out what medical ailments she and her friends are suffering from.
what does Do Me a Huge Solid mean then, if not that?
Shall we do an ailment sweepstake?
just means 'do me a favour'. No idea why I used it. Or 'pans out' in that context.
I'm banking on a lot of bad back stories, plus tales of my uncle who can't feel his legs sometimes; maybe even a little about said uncle's 200 year old cat (Bruno).
could always tell when it was going to rain as his bunions would play up (something to do with barometric pressure making them swell, not witchcraft).
Bloody love people and their stories.
so I'd say pretty American
Went stupidly well and Ive been asked to do a couple more. Proper amazing rush. Buzzin'
BUT I did do a bit about how meal deals are depressing and the only thing as depressing as an adult buying one is a single childs glove on a railing. They lapped up the DiS injokes.
where did you 'play'?
Great pub, but not as good as the pub next door as it has a rabbit in the lounge
I love you AV
The clyde auditorium is a far better venue for him than the secc.
Today i have a tonne to do so naturally will be posting on DiS.
POs post has put me in mind of some gluwein
Is your cousin an american fellow getting on in years, was once hailed as spokesman of the counter culture generation of the 60s, who wrote album after album of incredible records and who inspired every musician of note at the time and thereafter?! :)
he said 'bless you' when I sneezed like he really meant it, like 'oh my, bless you'
And then he phoned his boss and said, he was going to be late because of the traffic and that he thought it must be because everyone had decided to drive because of the cold weather. He had a really sweet voice.
And he had a lovely face and when he got of the bus he let everyone get out first.
I think he might have been an angel or something.
Went to a seafood disco the other day.
Pulled a mussel.
TOMORROW IS MY SATURDAY
SATURDAY IS MY SATURDAY
SUNDAY IS MY SATUTURDAY
MONDAY IS MY SATURDAY
Tuesday is my Sunday :(
going to find out who she is RIGHT NOW
she is called Jessica Raine. A quick google image search reveals that I don't actually fancy her that much. Thanks for your time.
Adam Gnade was great, except for the people standing next to us at the front who wouldn't stfu and talked the entire way through. Never understand why people like that don't just stand at the back. Great to see Youthmovies sort of back together though.
As I'm not going to ATP anymore I now have 5 days off work for no reason as of tomorrow. Gonna sleep loads.
glad he was great.
got a new technical jacket (Rab) and some warm cycling gloves and some whisky.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I am buying gloves today :)
Sounds like a good birthday. have an irn bru and a bun.
tonight I am going to help myself to a (not so) wee dram to ease my pain.
turned into staying up until 0100 drinking red wine, predictably I was absolutely shattered this morning, feeling slightly better now mind.
is this stupid i never lived with a tv befor
how did you watch your favourite shows?
And have offered to help me through the recruitment process. I've only been there for three months. I feel pretty good right now.
