It's cold, isn't it?
Play AQOS, you fuckers.
16 degrees CELSIUS in my lounge. Not sure why that feels so cold but it does :(
take that, you southern fucks.
15 degrees today. WTF.
bit dreich though
who can i expect to meet?
There's a fair few people coming.
although I am having one of those 'I'm never going to drink again' moments.
I'll be there
as did the snowman I saw playing the cello at Charing Cross this morning.
it'd be really deep grey. like the last non-black grey on the Word colour palette.
But your radio show is SO GOOD!
Not sure why.
Anyway today is my friday as i am off to london tomorrow for 5 days!! Cannot fucking wait! Hopefully gonna get along to the DiS weatherspoon crawl at some point.
And i am gonna get myself an oyster card for the first time.
I'm in total holiday mode but do have quite a bit to do before finishing up.
My meeting got cancelled.
WHERE IS THE SNOW?
We might have a gluhwein at lunch as we're going to fraser's for their discount day.
Too warm for snow.
WHERE'S THE COLD?!?
where's the snow?
I'm taking absolute pelters at work after celtic's pathically lame performance last night.
I'm actually off to celtic park later for a meeting, agenda unknown. Exciting!
this is the week of my musician exes- one of them was in town for a gig last night, and there's another in town tonight. It's nice to catch up though, good lads.
Big Ange got my tree up in five minutes last night. what a girl.
I think a shakeup is required at organisational level. I should pitch this, look how well i've done at cleaning up your rangers mess!
but I've given you a new board, look!
(what's a ranger?)
How do I join? #noob
Office Christmas lunch this afternoon - ah the joy of being surrounded by colleagues who would probably rather spend the £40 on something else. Beats being at work, though.
and too frosty - had to pull myself up a hill by grabbing onto parked cars today - a lady with a buggy slipped over and i couldn't get across the road to help her as it was totally frosted over, i hope she got home ok.
also i think i am getting a bit ill due to my new getting up early routine, early risers, is this just a settling in phase? my body doesn't seem to like it
I get up at 6.30am which I don't think is *that* early and apart from being a bit tired for an hour come about 2pm, my body is okay with it.
was getting up at 7.30 - i think i just need to get used to it
what time do you go to bed?
It's not really enough sleep but I don't find I feel exhausted or perpetually tired or anything. Can take some getting used to though, yes.
Listening to the She and Him Christmas album though which is helping.
Not going to be able to make the Wetherspoons crawl now, I've got some friends coming to stay and I found out they're turning up early on Saturday. Bit annoying, might just tell them to fuck off instead.
NOOOOOOOO. Oh well.
an hour late for work today. staff christmas do last night. Free booze and food at some dive bar in covent garden. i didn't have the food. May have told my boss's boss's boss that I want to transfer to NY.
Woke up this morning with a McDonald's cheeseburger on my chest. forced myself to finish it along with the chips. I'm going to drown in coffee now.
Still got my trousers though.
stark bollock naked, atop my unopened bedsheets, with an untouched footlong steak and cheese subway on hearty italian bread on my chest, and rock band blaring at full volume on the main menu screen from my front room.
living the dream
Life is funny sometimes.
Then office Christmas lunch tomorrow - I'm so close to being done for the week.
Stressed via proxy with my gf though - she went to the dentist and was told she needed a root canal, which swiftly became a specialist root canal, and had to go private and pay a fortune, now she's waiting for a crown and has to eat soft food for a week. It's bullshit, but fingers crossed it will all be sorted (if not paid off) before Christmas.
hadn't fancied a drink at all and now I'm all like, there's a bottle of Duval in my fridge but it's 8 hours away and those 8 hours are going to bore me a lot
managed to keep the cats out of our room last night, even though the social one did manage to wake us up a few times with some serious door scratching. had some evil thoughts about getting a water spritzer
we have mutual contempt for each other, which is fine. i feed them, then tell them to bugger off. they ask me for food then tell me to bugger off. occasionally we lower each other's heart rate, then get one with what we'd rather be doing. the only real problem i have with them is that like annoying early rising over-studious house mate at uni, they have absolutely no consideration for my love of being asleep at 7 in the morning. i do not appreciate any pillow kneading or drilling, nor door scratching. cat better learn or cat will be taught the difference between things we both like, and things we both dislike.
Have realised more and more lately that it's keeping regular correspondence with a select few people that will keep me fulfilled rather than meeting up with huge numbers of people at a much reduced frequency.
Otherwise, looking forward to the weekend already and having slight anxiety about playing my first gig in a while next week. Ho hum..
Fuck you, and fuck your whole goddamn operation.
Ahaha. Don't be ridiculous. Obviously you matter not, but I DO need to buy that book.
I'm leaving the morning thread now, two days in it (albeit two days without lowering myself to posting about my day) is just not right.
And yeah, I agree with your first part. I've actually excised a friend this past few months due him being a dick. I decided that I don't want to have 30 friends that I just put up with.
I will get it down to a solid 8 and be happy
it was undoubtedly one of the most bizarre performances I've seen this year. I'm not sure if it was really good or really bad. It was something, though.
today I have gone to where they moved to, and they've moved again. might not even be in the same building anymore.
have our Christmas party tonight. I think it's going to be shit. seriously tempted to just not bother going.
incredibly sick when I got home, and still fairly nauseous this morning. Starting to wish I'd stuck to my original plan of staying at home, hopefully I'll be alright by the time I head over to the forum to see Neko Case.
It was the best lamb bhuna i've had in ages, everything fell into place. I was knackered after work xmas do 1 of 3 (xmas markets edition) though so i went home not long after finishing. Couldn't be arsed. Making a pasta bake tonight, fyi
now someone please tell me they're going so I can hang out with you.
anyone need a ticket or two please buy them from me!
had a very confused conversation with caitlin rose about this the other day cos I thought it was a made-up thing
just going to ring them and ask for a refund and hope they're nice about it!
I'm wearing my claw broach and people think I'm weird. DEAL WITH IT. I also just showed my knickers to a man in the kitchen.
my christmas party last night: I'm a terrible person and that's all there is to say
mine was too.
do we work at the same place?
mine was in covent garden. there's a girl i work with i has all the hallmarks of a diser and it did cross my mind before that it might be you!
either way it isn't though, so...cool story bro
I think I will shortly be too
is an amazing dancer and we were doing 'dirty dancing' and I developed a massive crush on him over the evening and we went to the crobar in tottenham court rd till 4am - he's just walked into the office now eek
HERO. MO in these situations is apparently to flee at all costs for at least the next eight days.
Two UDIs. Carpet burns on my knees from sliding across the floor to Highway To Hell.
Last out, first in of my team this morning. That is how I roll.
(Send help I'm dying... convinced myself that straight whiskey would be good for my terrible cold/sore throat)
Just got out of bed. Feel mostly alright now.
Then got an email notification saying another out of print game I've been hankering after for ages is back in stock.
And I'm going to get a hog roast (with apple sauce and stuffing, obvs) from the bakery in a minute.
Might call in sick every Thursday from now on.
It's fucking excellent.
And I don't have any of those.
One of the arch-nerds at my gaming group brings it sometimes but it's not been played yet.
still a little complex but I got the ipad game first which makes it easier to see what the shit is going on
To get it played next time.
does anyone want to pay for me to get home so i can watch the football on saturday?
that looks nice i'll make that over christmas
oh, I meant the scottish heart-attack inducing ones.
I can send you a food parcel (but not today).
that looks even better. i'll try sainsburys later
i couldn 't possibly
booking domestic flights in the usa is such a nightmare.
they need to get an easyjet or something
at the moment which don't involve a stop over in nassau and it seems they don't exist.
Does skyscanner.net work in the US?
it's like yeah go this route no bother, oh by the way it has a 36hr layover
have I really been doing this for the past two hours
Time differences were hurting my head.
When are you going back to the states?
We need drinks before that. (the 21st for sure). I might try to do mulled beer!
imagine mulling over a mulled beer on the isle of mull
I need to get an EA.
not going back until the new year, plenty of time for mulled beer!
h_y_g was excellent company this lunchtime. Well done him.
