Bit foggy, innit?
Anything exciting happening today?
Cursing myself for having a massive curry last night when I've got a 9 o'clock meeting this morning. Oooooft.
Found out some juicy work drama through the joys of having underlings monitor higher ups' emails. Glorious.
Just want it to be the weekend, please.
But everyone's at each others' throats but it's all too far above my head to affect me. So I'm just sitting back and enjoying the show.
orchestrating a coup too.
So I'm going to do this every night forever more.
Watched The Iceman last night. Pretty crap, don't bother.
I've got an incredibly boring project to do at work at the moment so I'm just going to sit here and listen to the Hotline Miami soundtrack until its time to go home.
was up until about stupid o'clock packing. Heard him leave at 4am and the wheels of his suitcase were SO LOUD. He's a nice guy though, I'll forgive him. Maybe once I'd realised it was gonna keep me awake I should have had the 2 cans of Grolsch in my fridge.
The whole appartment was a mess, and their conclusion was that we need to do some basic cleaning.
They looked around for 2 or 3 minutes, not really paying attention to any details. Then they woke up my flatmate to just have a look in his room for 2 seconds. Flatmate (already very annoyed that he got woken up at 9) disn't think it was funny.
pray 4 mojo
got home monday after work fell asleep at 6pm all the way through to the morning, same happened yesterday fell asleep at like 8pm and slept all the way through to about an hour ago.
need to shake this melancholy mood.
parents evening this evening :|
finally got round to actually unpacking from Canada and found a $CAD20 in a random envelope, which is at least 2 trips to Tim Horton's for coffee and breakfast, which annoyed me. so yeah, over two months since we got back and finally unpacked. :/ haha
found out that due to the days in which the radio station i am on being closed i will be able to broadcast my show uninterrupted. which is nice.
(I can't download is from Mixcloud can I? Streaming only?)
but that's why they're legit (they pay royalties) and great
i have about ten radio shows to upload there :(
it's really quite a good thing.
might do it tomorrow.
will, after you leave to go back to your old (soon to be new) job, make you an offer of promotion to trump what would then surely become your old, new,old job?
Your gut instinct is the only thing to go with in these things.
if you were closer. It was a bit much.
some wise old sage decided it would be a good idea to ply me with white wine and leave the bedroom door open. needless to say, i'm very tired due to being brutally attacked all night by some cat and her drill.
And am feeling like a big sleepy blob. Currently standing on a trading from Reading. Can't wait for Friday lunchtime.
are you solely trying to get to London or are you happy anywhere that's not Oxford?
and i know people there and it will be a laugh. i'll be fine. last night i had a dream that my friend wanked me off into my own face
Because the post got regraded as I was promised it would when applying
The interview is ring fenced and contains two people I work with and someone from Human Remains
What a crock of shit
Went ok aside from one awkward question, the guy from human remains was a bit vacant so should be all good.Time to wind down for Christmas!!!
Feel remarkably fresh today considering.
Due to my excitement at heading down to london this weekend i have totally switched off from work! :)
if you've swicthed off sufficiently for a gluhwein.
My reason for going is to shout, a lot, at th eopeople who sold me a tree which they said came in a pot, but when I got it home it was just roots and soil wrapped in plastic. It's only sitting upright because i used a variety of clawhammers and other heavy objects to wedge it upright.
I also tried to smash up my pizza stone using a hammer last night, which was fun to do with a dislocated finger.
what else can I report on from the disaster zone?.... Oh, I had a whole packet of bacon between two slices of bread and a pint of milk for breakfast. That's about it. Tonight I am hibernating.
Although a half cut PO shouting abuse at folk about christmas trees does sound very amusing! :)
to confirm. Not until about 3 i don't think.
when are you off to yon london? I was hoping to go this saturday, but unless I can get monday off it's looking unlikely.
except celtic. and I might watch it in bed.
Is not about taking a break from work to engage in card-based geekery like I initially hoped.

i mean, i stole it from a list online, but whatever
(is that a thing?)
but i wanted to try this out. i would never competitive netdeck
today a 2014 mtg fat pack will arrive at my place of work. I am going to nerd out like sh*t this christmas
is someone using mtg as an abbreviation for meeting? coz if so, what teh wtf
half of them are actually online though so I think they have all moved without telling me. nice of them.
Gotta really pull a lot of stuff together this morning so you can expect me to stop posti- ahhahahah probably not
kind of glad I didn't see it at the IMAX as some of the camerawork was dizzying great film overall though.
Work christmas party tonight, so tempted not to go, who has a christmas party on a wednesday, honestly...
Christmas Party tonight in Mayfair, which should be fun.
Found out my father has invited a cousin I'm not keen on round for Christmas day. She's just catty ('don't you think you're a bit old for long hair?') I go really quiet when i'm around her because otherwise you just get dragged to her level and because it's not part of my normal character I end up looking like the bitchy one with a problem
What really bugs me is that I pride myself on being a nice, easy going person that gets on with everyone, so when someone pisses me off it doesn't sit well.
Boo, Christmas is ruined :(
she's not catty, she's bonkers.
full sympathies for Terrible Family Christmas.
she's a frump (see - she makes me bitchy maaan) and thinks anyone over the age of 30 should have some rubbish mumsy hairdo
I'm sure it must be possible for you to find something you can subtly needle her about and get some degree of satisfaction back, no?
so my voice goes all shaky when I'm carrying out a premeditated attack. But I'll give it a go
say stuff like 'my hair needs to be this long, otherwise how would my boyrfirned pull it whilst he... well you get the picture."
but I do like your thinking
to shut her cakehole.
I agree that LONG long hair on anyone over the age of about 21 is creepy (as in beyond bum length) but presuming she means just norally long, she can GTF. *flicks waist length curls over shoulder*
it's just past my shoulders, so not long at all really!
or intimidated by you? Otherwise, it just sounds like gratuitous bitchiness, and you just need to (try to!) ignore.
getting more and more red in the face
the only thing to do is get drunk on port and square up
All my presents turned up from Amazon, got piss all work to do except design an email Christmas card and it's my penultimate day of work before Christmas. Might crack open the Quality Street.
i'm so nervous
Work's paying for a 3-course meal and all our drinks which is nice!
Worked until almost midnight last night on various funding things so quite tired this morning, but decided to walk the 4 miles into work so I could listen to the Nils Frahm album and feel quite awake and refreshed now.
Motivation levels are very, very low today.
Two shit meetings
One legal training afternoon
Fuck you, Wednesday.
TODAY IS MY FRIDAY IF I HAD TO WORK ON SUNDAY AND THEN BE OFF MONDAY AND TUESDAY
I'm going to see frozen tonight.
This has cheered me up.
This is so embarrassing. Kaaj is locked in her flat and I may have accidentally have lifted her keys. I've thoroughly checked the bag I had with me last night and the coat and jacket, but I forgot I also had a shopping bag! I've not checked the goddam shopping bag. You see.... I do have form for lifting any set of keys I see that has the tesco clubcard token on it. AHHHH, i need to go back to my flat NOW. (Surely I wouldn't have? she can't get to work. WAH.)
I saw her status. This is brilliant.
I need to watch Inception again.
Oh I guess that makes sense. She's good fun, havnae seen her for ages. Was she at ATP? Don't really remember...
Yes, yes she was. Are you doing the mass exodus to Scotland on the 10th?
Shhhhh (kind of secret!!)
I'm so confused.
With a subject in the subject line!! xxx
I have no idea what this is
check your PMs now. You are invited.
that was embarrassingly pitiable on my part, sorry =D
but not enough.
I'm her GLESGA MATE, I've stolen her form you all.
Ermm, I totally don't have her keys though. Unless,,,,,, fuck, I didn't check my dress pocket. I need to go back to my flat, again.
Who on DiS doesn't know Kaaj?
(also, say hi and merry Christmas and all that sort of shit to her when you return her keys/launch a survival care package through her window, which is apparently now in Glasgow)
She had her keys in her handbag.
It appears I have struck up a friendship witjh a person who is actually MORE not less flaky than me. even though she says she's found them, I still feel the impulse to check my pockets as I was SO convinced I'd half-inched them. AH well. I'll pass on your greetings when I see her tomorrow :D
Kaaj, Tuplin, Jules and Big Ange. DiS legends that have never even once posted.
how am I supposed to keep track of all these fake internet hotties I've never met, huh
Did you not know? When K was looking for a flatmate, I was like 'oooh, I know a girl called darwindude whose boyfriend still_here has just moved to glasgow and is looking for a room in ther west end.'
They meet, they like, they live.
Do you like the tree, still_here? I carried it up all the stairs.
You all only know and love Kaaj because I convinced to keep me company while theguywithnousername's Father Christmas trousers slowly fell down on stage about 5 or 6 years ago. Next time you're all being pals, remember how great a debt you all owe me.
(I PMed still_here but they don't work, do they?)
i hope it flourishes.
nice work on the stairs although there are only like 15 of them but thats ok.
god this place is a soup of intrigue. and other things.
so could have done with more sleep. starting on a second series today of which the first was a bit of a nightmare, but everyone's being nice and friendly... for now.
a (slight) hangover from a friend's birthday last night. Nearly won at bowling. Love bowling.
Its big and by a window. I can't get comfy though.
IM SO BORED THO
but its from my jumper and not from my body :(
Finished 3rd in a tough quiz.
Day off today so I am drinking tea and listening to the twilight sad. Going to have a chat with the TV at lunchtime, which'll be nice as we haven't spoken since Sunday. Looking forward to that. Indoor 5s later this evening. Top day off.
Spent the afternoon in bed feeling sorry for myself, couldn't sleep though as the bloke was putting the new bath in.
Wen to bed early, woke up all sweaty in the spare bed. Felt disgusting.
Bit better today but decided to work from home. Got the radio on and the bloke is back to do the bath. Been doing my duty and have so far made him a cup of coffee and a cup of tea and indulged a bit of man talk. Also had a Gregg's bacon and sausage batch.
and I'm not really bothered about it but said yes anyway.
now the guy has asked me to write a bit about my experiences with certain stuff and I can't be fucked but it's going to look quite bad if I just say "nah" once I found out it required even the smallest amount of effort on my part.
and on walking back to my seat i noticed that it's slightly shorter than the internal dimensions of the wrapper. so i shook it back and forth to make it go from one end to the other and back. what everyone just saw though was me walking round the office joyously wanking off my chocolate bar
were you in a state of arousal at the time
i still think about that bunny, every time
B========D - - -
Today I got to have a meeting with her and her boss and tell them how terrible her work is.
It was beautiful. I was so nice. And condescending.
this is amazing.
Can you record it or something?
I'll give it a good bash.
with sock puppets
and I called them up on in. Now she's going to be out for revenge so I've got to atch my back until Christmas.
also this makes me sound better than I am.
got dead drunk on mulled wine then went to a pub for the sole reason it was called the vine inn and drank until we got thrown out and dave walked out with the best part of a pint of hobgoblin and gave it to me on the tram so now i've got a lovely hobgoblin pint glass. tonight is xmas do part 2 of 3 (curry edition). xmas do part 3 of 3 (take that tribute band edition) is a week on thursday, for your fyi
in covent garden.
gonna be horrific, but free booze and food so w/e
5 day weekend coming up. Get in. If only work wasn't so horrifically stressful.
Am walking up Regent street and it is cold and Christmassy,
