ey up :)
I feel well good today. Got a house viewing later too.
IT'S FRIDAY TOMORROW ASWELL BTW GUYS, OKAY. DONT PANIC. ITS NEARLY HERE.
I just checked my bank balance. Oops.
*breaks glass and removes emergency cup-a-soups*
Covonia, I have and although it seem to make me forget how to walk on the way in I never coughed once.
I'm going to a coffee tasting thing tonight because I'm clearly a massive coffee wanker.
Feel less dizzy today. Maybe the weird pills are working. Was hoping they wouldn't because I can't drink on them and I'm going to want to booze at the weekend :/
Now hopefully you can get off the pills, onto the booze with some manky coffee thrown in!
I was just planning on taking the pills today and tomorrow, then stopping on Saturday cos I have big, BIG evening planz. I can see nothing which could go wrong here. NOTHING.
"make me better" as such, they're just alleviating the symptoms. Though I'm not entirely sure they are, might just be my body mending itself.
The email conversation has moved on by about five replies now, all cordial and professional. Need to find a way of working retaliatory rudeness in with the other person still looking like the jerk.
SOMETHING SAID, NOT GOOD
still on study leave. didn't do enough work yesterday so already behind my plans.
had a brief moment of confidence when I found out the pass mark was "only" about 55%. then I started the book and 55% seems massive :/
this is the last module in the course I'm doing though, so the idea is that you use the knowledge you've learnt (and definitely haven't forgotten by now because you've been doing the whole thing on and off for two years) in the previous modules to apply the techniques in this book, and then get over 55% on that. plus the exam is written, whilst all the others were multiple choice, so harder to have an educated guess.
I do have the case studies in advance that I'll be questioned on, and I do have a list of likely questions along with answers to the likely questions. colleague at work said that when they did it, the likely questions covered 70% of the paper so maybe I should just spent five days memorising them?
cook a mean dinner, and go to the shop.
today though i found out that my bank branch isn't open on saturdays. the only one open as far as i can tell for miles and miles around is in the west end, in hillhead. kinda need to drop some cash into it.
on the front for stuff like that, aslong as you have a slip and envelope
Today i feel better so heading into work.
Pretty happy about music - we're on the cover of the Bristol Post this morning :D
Otherwise my assistant starts at work next week and I'm completely unprepared so need to pull my finger out. And my gym trainer is terrifying but is at least making me work hard
Feeling pretty stupid about my spending habits recently. New year new start no spend.
Made a kick ass bookcase yesterday for my lady, she's well happy. It's the last piece of furniture we need so we don't have boxes hanging around in the house we moved into 3 months ago.
A job in my skills area has opened up down the road from me. Like, 5min walk. Naffed if I don't get it.
Developed a migrane last week not long after having a coffee, don't think it's connected but it put me off coffee. Going to have my first in a week now. Pray for me.
If I am tired and have coffee on an empty stomach, then I'm only one other trigger away from full aura migraine (other triggers being- bright flickering sunshine, chocolate, oranges.)
So I think the coffee pushed it over the edge. However my body decided that it would make me avoid coffee rather than stress for some reason. I know which one I would prefer to have day to day.
However, so far so good. No auras.
and some paracetomols when I first get the funny eyes.
The last migraine I had was from not drinking coffee the day before. And it started at 6am on a sunday. FAB.
The worst are migraines in your sleep. BLEURGH.
Nothing to report.
they've got triple chocolate muffins out for everyone at work, chocolate muffin, with chocolate chips and this gooey chocolate sauce inside. I haven't had one. Not gonna.
and I regretted it afterwards for way longer
that's what I do- I find a whole one too much in the mornings but if you wait till afternmoon the gannets have finished them all. Swoop, slice, stash.
might see if some other guilty chubster wants to go halves
Just booked up for a couple of nights in amsterdam for work in Feb, nice! :)
Gonna go see 12 years a slave tonight
dunno whether to do some CHESS tonight or go home and write some stuff. Dunno.
Also, wanna buy The Walking Dead game :(
feeling pretty good still
and I'm not sure exactly what I'm meant to be covering. It's all easy stuff I think, but a bit vague at the same time. Could be a trap. Hope it's not.
by a chubby blonde joyfully shrieking Booo Gooo Baboooooooooo. it was lovely, there is nothing like the alarm call of a hungry baby who wants to play in her jumparoo (am thinking there should be a jumparoo for adults- it would be so good at parties.)
Got lunch today with a blast from my past which is making me feel queasy. maybe i ought to cancel and go shopping instead for that jacket I want. I might just do that actually. and then this evening I am consoling a recemtly dumped friend. she's a newsreader and has been signed off as she had a bit of a crying and yelling fit live on air. She does however insist that she did not utter the words Gonnae kill that Basturt on air, and I for one believe her. She was muttering hail marys. I think tonight's going to be hard work as I'm of the 'buck up and get on with your life' schoool of thought on these things (even though I'm finding increasingly that I don't always follow my own advice on that.) So yeah- lots of wine.
it's also been taken down from iplayer. would it be really bitchy if I swooped in and tried to take her job? I've always wanted to do the news.
first to do this but I don't think you have ever mentioned if you have before
I saw a film crew shooting something. does that work?
something like this: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_YDxC2ssqadA/TRQkXdihYGI/AAAAAAAAE48/Q_vgmiyZEws/s1600/IMG_7089.JPG
so that would kill me. I need to be strapped in, tight with my legs through the holes and all harnessed in. I also need some bright buttons to hit (maybe with a small hammer) and tasks to do which will reward me by playing chirpy tunes. I'm going to email Fisher Price now as there's a gap in the market for this.
we're ex-directory and have never given anyone our number. i don't even know our number. i didn't answer. i'm scared.
I don't even have a house phone for this reason.
nowt to report.
so I feel like i've wasted food for the day :(
Work restructure blues aren't so bad today.
i have no envy for those of you that have to use them daily for any length of time.
pretty good although the phone sex stuff is incredibly awkward.
today is my wednesday :(
How is the Yooo Essss of Ayyy?
Are you working like a dawg, or getting any free time to drink massive tankards of beer and pull chicks?
working my baws off unfortunately. never mind, I'll be back in Glasgow soon enough
like really bad.
everything can fuck off
I have no friends at uni and when I come home I have no money so I can't see my friends.
if my new boss is mad with me or happy with me.
I'm very stretched at the minute but I think things are going ok otherwise.
Pretty exhausted and can't wait for the weekend. Also boring diet/gym stuff. That's already more than anyone cares to know.
