hahaha fuck off.
kill me now :(
FUCK TODAY MAAAAAN
Pretty happy to be back at work! Does that make me some kind of monster?
yes it does
Fuck doing five days on the trot straight off the back of Christmas.
Fuck doing an inane 2 day week straight off the back of Christmas.
to go early, inset day anyways so nice easy slide into the week...
think I am quietly glad to get back to it, bit of routine to get into after lounging around eating troo much and watching home alone for 2 weeks
There was something growing in my coffee mug and it might have turned out to be beautiful or a medicinal breakthrough but I killed it with washing up liquid.
Might leave my 'out of office' on FOREVER.
This is the first place i've worked where the cleaners don't take your plates and cups off your desk for you and clean them. I ave no problem with doing it myself, but after 10 years of pampered habit, and in my rush to escape at 2pm on xmas eve. I FORGOT. The mug* is steeping in boiling water and fairy liquid. I'll check on it in an hour.
*it was only a generic firm mug, not a special one like my BOO mug or anything like that.
The sticky matter at the bottom of it which used to be coffee and milk has set into concrete.
so that's something I have to look forward to.
do not want
Should really leave the house.
Any minute now.
Glad I came in last Thursday and Friday though.
I had a great weekend. Board games and wine on Friday, American Hustle and cooked for a buddy with loads of gin on Saturday and then yesterday was spent having brunch, going to the London Transport Museum for the first time. What a joyous place.
where you've got loads to do and are too ill. managed to ditch a load of old stuff to the chazzer and sell a wardrobe and some chairs though. need to start packing this week!
starting to get a little bit nervous that i'm going to hate london
They try hard but after more than a week they give up. Those who say it's shit are either lying or have been for a weekend at a time max.
You'll be fine c_r
horses for courses innit, dude.
But either way c_r just do it, you'll be reet.
Hating London is like hating Greater Manchester shirley? Hating the entire city is hating about 100 microcosms at once. Unless you just hate being around people there must be a part of it you can be happy in.
I can understand why some people can't stand *central* London though.
I'm aware I have a biased perspective so fair enough
i don't really mean that i'll hate it. more just that everyone will be a fucking idiot. it's just irrational bollocks prior to a big jump
but I know I can't live there. ever.
w'll see what happens
i just like being in Glasgow too much.
The god thing is, when you are having a 'hate' monent, you can distract yourslef amply by the many milions of things tehre are to do. It was never london that I hated- just certain things about it would bug me. I miss it sometimes. When are you moving? I'm planning a trip for late Feb/ early March.
so yeah, please let's hook up
we can discuss schedules this weekend! (when do you arrive on friday btw? And are you staying sunday night, ie should I try to get monday morning off? I should probably do a FB message thing.)
rang in sick so im gonna rest and feel sorry for myself
And have a can of root beer to celebrate my efforts. Monday is fine.
Is it the same as ginger beer?
Hmm, not ginger beer at all. More like sarsparilla. But then the article on sarsparilla says that Australian sarsparilla is different to the American one. Anyway, I assume it's a kind of aniseedy type soft drink.
Certainly not the worst in this thread
I also moved my arse and my suitcase fomr parent's house to my flat. GO ME.
I made an omelette (not go me, I udnercooked iut. Woah, this is probably why I feel ill today.)
Apart from the above, I did fuck all and didn't even leave the house all weekend. (GO AGORAPHOBIA, MY 2014 NEUROISIS!)
The time it took to go to the co op and back
and I get ONE day off tomorrow.They turned down my holiday request for february as Im the only one in that night (there should be three, minimum) so Im handing in my notice the night before when itll be TOO late to arrange cover. Employ through an agency you swim with sharks I think they say.
I've just had my holiday request for weekend of 10-14 Feb turned down as it's half term and i don't have kids. BUT IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, I HAVE A HUGE SURPLUS OF HOIDAYS TO USE BY END OF FEB AND I WANT TO BE OFF YOU CUNTS. Ah, here we go. 2014 is going to be SO different from 2013 *sigh*
Is it illegal to refuse holidays when you have them built up? Can you check in one of your books?
You are entitled to take or be paid for holidays accrued. They are entitled to refuse any holiday (esp where not in business interests to grant it) and when you leave you get paid for the holiday instead. however, this stands against a backdrop of the various employment law rights such as 'duty of trust and confidence' between employer and employee and you could argue that they are denying you the right to rest/ enjoy family life etc and other human rights and that this is a breach of their duty of care to you. (even though you're an agency worker, they can't contract out of DoC).
what does your Back of a Fag Packet Agency Contract have to say about it? I would appeal to them saying, look I know it might not be convenient, but I'm working constant shifts and I am entitled to hoidays for the sake of my wellbeing. You have a duty to ensure my wellbeing is not compromised. STOP BEIONG DICKS. OR ELSE I WILL LEAVE.
I imagine its different for you in your job (although equally as galling), but its not like Im saving lifes here. I dont like stamping my feet til i get what i want, I like the swift brutal FUCK YOU and drop them in the shit approach. Ill ask them again nicely.
Parts of the states are currently colder than *mars*:
but I had to get up and go to work because of some douche who locked up wrong last night.
Going to Glasgow on Thursday :D
no fuckin money blues. ta for the invite though, and have a fab time!
I'm sure K will be having many more parties before her stint in glasgow is over!
until Sunday afternoon
No thanks, pal.

Minutes wasted (sorry, spent) on DiS: 14

Minutes feeling sorry for self: 2
Minutes googling holidays: 0 but i'm going to spend 10-11am doing this
Food: 0 (I am still poorly after last week and I think I might even have appendicitis/ hypochondria. I'll attempt food when the nausea and pain dies down).
I think this should be the new format (or thereabouts) for the morning thread (audit).
(thanks to some cunt singing outside my flat and the fact that i am anxious and prone to nightmares just now. and then I was too hot so turned off my radiator, then woke up freezing. It's probably down to the appendicitis.)
And for some reason she feels the only time to practice is after midnight, her bob dylan renditions are not even approaching shite yet! :(
I never hear a peep form my neighbours
i never hear a peep out of my neighbours depite them having the biggest tv and surround system I've ever seen in my life.
Drunk idiots coming out of the bath street bars though at 3am? they can get to fuck. I'm getting a water gun and I'm going to start soaking them. It dosen't matter at the weekend because i'm either not in bed at 3am, or I'm out, or i'm tipsy, or I don't care because it's the weekend. On schoolnights it's mean.
slept terribly last night but feel not too bad. can't complain. did a bit of script-writing over the weekend which is always fun, think a bit more of that is in order tonight
I'm booking the last week in January off with my rolled over holiday from last year.
Can't be arsed. Might just not bother.
after two and a bit weeks, feels surprisingly good (man).
my zonecard hasn't gone up in price, yet.
but it's wrong. which is actually even worse because it means I have to go through it with a fine tooth comb and change- it doens't let you just scrap it and start again. ARRGH. nervous breakdown imminent.
Mainly cos my clients just pulled Q1 spend so my busy January just became a laid back one.
Started looking at wedding stuff at the weekend. I thought we could do pretty cheap but seeing even basic prices I'm all like: http://play.esea.net/global/media_preview.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.ning.com%2Ffiles%2FPaAZIB51Ew02ygiCgRDQ2fj6LkJuIj*1UYjnW-XlMO*EiFbi0BuEctVxHtowM-U7hcDCYuQ3mDddDrEGU3rvPpGcRH2C9hCK%2Fuh_wtf_gif.gif
I would expect a bit of a deal on the old vino given you're putting a huge spend into the place. There's somewhere I quite like but they're charging the menu price for the wine and I'm like ALLOW THAT.
Leaning more towards places where I can hire and stack with my own booze.
Also any recommendations on cool places to have a wedding reception in the LB Hackney much obliged
but brixton- my bookclub friend had her reception at brockwell lido at the lido cafe. I didn't go but have seen the pictures. It looked absoultely incredible and the friends who attended said it was amazing. I'm not sure about late licensing there though, although it should be worth asking?
Have you looked at west resrvoir centre, I'm pretty sure I heard of a friend getting married there? clissold house?
But sadly it's too small. So we're both pretty settled on stoke newington town hall, especially as it means I can get a pre match pint at the auld shil. So brixton is a bit too far out.
Worked really well and I don't think it cost stupid money.
Oh my sweet summer child
I would laugh but I can't imagine I'll find it any different an ordeal
And having to interact. Already told off a handful of students just to let some steam off. Don't care.
not that bad actually. i'm still getting a new job though, fuck this.
I have 19 days annual leave to use before the end of March. Really need to decide where to go on holiday and book something, I haven't left the UK in 18 months.
Came in this morning, mumbled 'morning' at my colleagues and haven't said/done anything since.
Feels really great to be back guys!!!1!
I am getting paid to sit and do my tax return and tesco shopping. I know I'll pay for it later in the week when I'm either busy or bored senseless, but at the moment, I'm can't in all honesty complain (other than I would prefer to be doing all this from home and still gettting paid for it).
now I'm so bored I'm actually going to organise my training materials for my lecturing tomorrow. This means I am very very very bored guys.
of the shittest morning of the year.
I haven't looked at holidays yet, been too busy doing an online tesco shop.
Email not working
Poorly enough to feel rough but not enough to skive
Don't really like most of my colleagues
My email isn't working! Rejoice! Rejoice!
whatever you say, captain pissy pants.
unlike my man-nappy...
Has anyone else seen him on this tour and is it as fantastic as I'm hoping it will be?
Also, I'm not that familiar with the area so are there any decent pubs round Leicester Square (or is it just better to go to Soho)?
Not his best set, but it was all warming up for the recording so it was being tweeked over the dates, saw him on one of the first few dates so things may have got better. Lots of jumping around between material as he was doing bits from different shows.
Yeah, I read a lot of it is in preparation for the new series of Comedy Vehicle.
Definitely get your money's worth in any case.
Re-read my post and it seems overly negative. Really didn't mean it to be.
we have some peanut butter m&ms, pretty nice. Tip: suck them.
Thats about 1500grams :(
they're in a bowl, the bag and the evidence are gone but it was a small bag of m&ms, certainly not 1.5kgs
I don't know where this cat is though. I think my upstairs neighbor has bought a cat and left it on the balcony. It cried ALL NIGHT.
Then I walked out of the house, put my new brolly up....then the wind took it from me and blew it round a corner. Its gone. Forever.
I HATE THIS DAY
Christmas seemed to really unsettle her, and was a bit afraid her mouth problem was back.
She'll eat chicken when we hand feed her, but put food in her bowl and she runs aware scared (usually a sure sign that she's ill)
Yesterday I got out of the shower and she was sat in the sink meowing (usually never goes in the bathroom)
Today she was just sat in her litter box (it's got a roof on it) for ages. I tried to give her chicken to coax her out but she was swatting it out of my hand and eating it in the box.
She sometimes has funny turns but you can coax her back to health. But she's never acted this mental before. Worrying as she's getting dead old
... thanks to that fucking rice cooker thread the other day.
I don't think logging out works on the mobile site Sean
Another world now the sun & blue sky is out
