Where everyone comes down to our floor for a catch up.
if I have remembered them correctly.
I've been in bed since about 4pm on Saturday bleurghhhhhhhhhhhh
hope you're ok. what's happening at work?
Never settle down with a primary school teacher- you get all the little kiddy germs and bugs and none of the boosted self esteem or kudos.
yuck also re work. Hope it's ok.
Your mate broke me at the weekend.
Was in the gym at 6am so I'm ready to relax now. Just had a nice big bowl of porridge and a couple of coffees. Going to apply for a couple of jobs then I think I might watch a couple of Ghost Stories For Christmas off of my new DVD.
Also, saw my ex out with her new fella yesterday: she's let herself go and he's a dick. :)
I'm going home for a disconap at lunchtime.
good, i think.
How was Scout feeling?
she had to go home sat morning :(
Migraines: not good.
I have no voicem, not even a croak. i think I need to go to the doctor later. everyone had fun though.
Not the fun 'the weeks gone so fast' kind of busy either, the boring 'reporting and compliance obligations' kind of busy. Ugh.
Was meant to start on New Year's Day but failed miserably with that as I went out drinking a lot last week with smoker friends and still had cigarettes left over.
I'm going to be ratty as fuck. Cigarettes were the only thing that made 'reporting and compliance obligations' bearable. Ugh.
first proper day working for me, not feeling up to a meeting where I actually have to talk proper sense to strangers quite yet.
Monday: What a shitbag.
Freezer broke yesterday, so I've lost some food - oven chips and a tub of Ben and Jerry's being my main concerns. It's only a couple of months old so still covered by the garro. Will have to give them a call tonight.
What about my fucking oven chips though?
to have chips and ice cream for dinner last night?
I had defrosted pizza for tea, by the time I noticed the ice cream had lost the 'ice' part and was just cream really.
and there's actually a fair bit of work to do including running a 1 hour training session. Gonna try and time my coffee so I peak at just the right point in the day.
Far too much to do. And all of it's boring. Like this post.
My Jedi robe dressing gown was dispatched this morning, so I've got that to look forward to.
called seasmus at the weekend. Mot only was he cool but he had on a soul glo t-shit that I correctly identified he had bought from 6 dollar Tees. #friendsforlifenow
Had a great day on Saturday: breakfast in Brixton, cycle along Regent's Canal in the sunshine from the zoo to Old Street stopping for hot choc and scone at Caravan KX, went to a pretentious contemporary LSO thing afterwards at St Lukes and hung out with some of the massive egos from it at a nearby Wetherspoons until closing time.
An 18 year old intern is now sitting next to me and she looks about 12, it's weird and I don't like it.
Got my haircut which was nice. Always like a massage when getting the hair cut.
Had a big tasty too which was a bad thing. Need to stop that.
tonight: live on the radio doing my show thing. oops.
I've currently managed to kick booze-when-not-at-a-restaurant and weened myself off of caffeine pretty well but the snacking, it burns.
i have started eating peppers instead of crisps. sounds like i am mental but i love them. with or without a dip. might start bringing them cut up into work with some other stuff.
i don't snack at all actually, not at work anyway. for me it's the bread i eat.
I don't know what I can replace bread with. Drugs?
think I might have labrynthitis again :(
and scary. hope you feel better soon.
whereas this just came on completely out of the blue on Friday but it's got a bit worse this morning. I feel like a Weebl.
weebles wobble but they don't fall down./
though no other symptoms. I don't feel sick or anything, just this horrible sense of vertigo. Fucksake.
going to throw a strop
I have the 10th and 14th of Feb off. Happy birthday to Me.
are you the Queen?
he was practicing in the room next to us. His band look absolutely hilarious. I might go and see them.
Frankie Cocozza aside my weekend was alright. I went to a food bank benefit gig last night and had the pleasure of seeing Lorraine Bowen who made me chortle for a good half hour.
All I know about him is that he's not a very good singer and he likes cocaine. He probably did well to get out of the X Factor, start his own band and write his own music. He did watch in on one of our practices once, he looked completely bewildered.
He does like cocaine. He's not that bad a singer though.
I can't describe it, but I always associate with people who can't sing.
feel a bit better now. urgh no i need to spew again. I'm either severeley pregnant or I've got a month-long stpmach bug. or maybe I just drink a bit too much.
Decided not to go to work this morning cos it rained last night and work goes mental when it rains. Missed call audit: 23. Going to have a walk along the canal, read the paper in a cafe that hasnt changed since 1993 (complete with Enya CD playing over and over) and then might sort out the spare room as my uncle is lettign me ebay anything in there and keep the money.
My dad is a hoarder. I love scavenging when I go home.
Loads of instrument (not good ones, sadly) and amps, 3 swords, and loads of army gear. I hate stuff in the "living" bits of house but its amazing when theres an attic or somethign that just has piles and piles of STUFF in it. I reckon your dads stuff would be awesome
Im scared youll put it in one of your videos and Id rather starve than have an association with one of those. No offense
and she seems completely fine with them, so you know, live a little?
You can have a sword
Playing it cool though, ya know? (So cool I left my phone on noisy and vibrate all night and slept on top of it so itd wake me up)
the biggest one.
so I can send it. I cant imagine this contravenes any laws whatsoever.
I will hang it on my wall.
Boyf surprised me with a trip to brighton to go ice skating and he took me to a throwing session (a pottery wheel class) and it was the best thing ever and i'm still so happy from it and NO BEFORE YOU ASK, IT WAS NOTHING LIKE GHOST.
Saw Walter Mitty yesterday with my parents. They talk too loud in the cinema.
Today - SO. MUCH. TO. DO.
I had to inform him about 10mins in that he was talking at normal volume and that no one was particularly interested in what he thought about the hall ways of walter mittys apartment block.
but then wanted to talk when the film started.
Spent Saturday going round the Museum of London Docklands, which I like, but I've done too many times, then drinking with some friends who had some other friends round who were really, really annoying.
Sunday I spent pretty much the whole day cleaning and felt like I didn't really relax at all. Also stressing over money (of course) and trying to come up with a holiday plan that won't depress or bankrupt me.
And the mold is coming back.
you've been americanised far too much, young sir.
Maybe it's her fault!
So, so hard.
I cannot stop being sick. think i might need to go home and lie down for a bit. We missed you. x
Can we plan Manchester? Also - I AM WAITING WITH BAITED BREATH. The suspenders are killing me.
I have a content alert notification. (I get a lot of these.)
Fri night met up with PO and a lovely bunch of her friends from Greenock & London/Manchester, sadly Scout couldn't join us.
Sat hung out with my nephews then drinks with new girl.
Sun walk in the park with the dog, bought a new jacket and more drinks with the new girl.
I have a lot to be getting on with, so naturally should be on here most of the day! :)
think i pulled every muscle in my body. hope nobody requires me to have to stand up or move around or anything today. need more coffee.
work is shit, I have a shit exam next Monday that I am going to do shit on, my plans for lunch have fallen through because the other person is in Newcastle and I had a really shitty night's sleep
lunch plans are back on, person forgot to update their work location thing, and they're actually next door.
summary: less shit
Which means the library is packed full of jobsworth students pretending to do work (not like me, of course). Already wish it was the end of term so that they'd all go home again and leave me in peace.
people who'd never set foot in the library otherwise clogging it out on the last two weeks of teaching and all of exams. got a lecture until midday? NO DESK 4 U. i h8 them all.
courtesy of a shattered plug. First one ever. Pretty grim.
My mate Jules electrocuted herself at my flat plugging in a dodgy "iphone 5" (non apple branded) charger.
albeit with scorch marks up her arms.
The actual voltage shouldn't be enough to harm a healthy adult...
Not much serious damage can be done from a regulation shock off a plug like. Feels horribly unpleasant having 240v jolt through you, and the resulting burn soreness from where you touched it... But in reality it's not as dangerous as it seems. A lot of sparkies work on live wires because they're rather get a bit of a shock than go through the rigmarole of turning everything off... (so I've been told).
The lad's a plumber who's been known to work with a few cowboy electricians in his time...
as compensation for a mega-delayed train I took at the start of December (when there was all that really really bad weather) I'm getting a full cash refund on what I paid and a free first class single ticket anywhere on their network.
so that's nice.
today is the last day of my christmas break. i'm back to university tomorrow and work from wednesday. it's cold and i have a lot i want to do today, yet despite being up for four hours all i've done is eat breakfast and watch a bad episode of The Simpsons. ummmm.
how did I miss the massive pretend animal in themiddle of it. It looks scary.
I'm going home to puke and snooze now.
what can i do?
can i get a proper pastrami sandwich? had a nasty buffet at lunch
I've taken the day off sick though so that's kind of alright.
It's still a 3.5/10 day though.
I've only just stopped being sick and I dozed off at my desk earlier and got caught by my boss.
I never do with a hangover, it feels a bit wimpy
and then going to my bed.
Fudge Cake Pudding though which is fully Fab!!!
