OH MY GOD, I HATE YOu.
I have loads of urgent stuff to do, which I hate on a Monday morning.
I'm floating a company on the NY stock exchange in about three hours and I'm so off my tits on painkillers that I can't feel my face. WOOO.
cause its my work colleagues birthday and she's brought in load of those tubs from M&S with the little chocolate bites etc so i've eaten loads of those and we're going out for lunch.
It's still fucking monday though.
don't use a baby as an alarm clock. It's not reliable.
so this is really good advice for me.
after last week this one should be a breeze
actually looking forward to taking some nice long walks to/from work to avoid sTrIkEaGeDdOn
Good that you have a postivie spin on MONDAY. I really need to be doing work as thc lock is ticking but I simply can't face it.
we have this bloody 'scrum' call with everyone in the team on Monday's at 3pm to say what you achieved last week and what you hope to achieve this week and I dread it. I HATE transparency, it's like let me just get on with please
that sounds far too much like accountability. I have a catch up meeting on a thing at 4 that I've been kicking into the long grass all of jan. I'm going to have to pretend that I've done lots of stuff taht I haven't.
threw out an old injury throwing a Javelin (on Kinect). :(
Today; first day of work in a week thanks to sickness, radio show later, yoga and meditation before that.
because of a chest injury, and it's actually killing me.
Still in Belgium. Probably gonna head to Brussels now. Have a wander.
Don't think I can drink any more beer today. I don't remember getting back to the hotel last night :/
Belgium sounds like good fun! I never remember annything the next day now, consider it a blessing. drink more beer.
Had a big ol' coffee and am feeling okay, but I'd really rather not be here.
I thought bruno mars was fucking brilliant. My puppy barked her head off at ther telly when he came on though(might have been the fireworks actually).
And I did that thing I do every year where I say 'when is the baseball starting' because I just can't get my head around the fact that superbowl is not baseball.
RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN
girlfriend just called to tell me that one of her friend's husband has left her and her two year old child.
packed a bag saying he had to go away for work for a coupl eof nights, and then sent her a text saying he was never coming back. I've only met the woman about twice but this has shocked me alittle.
RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN
that has got me gawping. I can't comprehend how anybody in their right mind could be that deceitful and walk away from a small child who is old enough to know that its daddy isn't at home any more. I can only imagine he's having some kind of breakdown or that his mistress is amazing at BJs.
if he cared at all he could have at least kidnapped the child
Look everyone Royter is being an insensitive dick.
hell. that poor woman.
Some people just can't deal with the responsibility fo married life.
I hope she's ok, does she have family nearby?
i really don't know her well, we have invited her to come and stay with us for a bit if she likes / has to / just wants to get away, i'm sure she won't but the offer is there.
kindof sucks to be getting to the age where marriages are breaking up
(says the divorcee) but what you don't do is abdicate responsibility for a family that you have made.
And the following friday and monday too. I don't feel quite so bad now.
Shattered today so guess I'm gonna be fucked tomorrow : (
Woke up on Sunday and the gf had vomitted all over the only carpetted area in the flat and I had a huge box of chicken that I don't recall buying
I've been painting all weekend. literally never left the house*. painting.
*except to go to the garage to get me painting stuff.
is there anywhere we can see some of your work?
In the nuddy
Barao is a monster but I think the Abel Trujillo fight impressed me the most, even if his history makes me feel a little uneasy rooting for him.
Went to the Silent Front record release party which was absolutely immense + the jerk chicken from the Caribbean place around the corner from The Victoria is excellent.
Probably going running tonight.
why would you think Monday morning is a great time for a meeting? ergh.
but today is a fucking disaster. And I've only had three hours sleep. argh shoot me now.
every single one of these meetings was "yeah ok, I can do sometime next week, just put it in my diary" and they all picked 10-12 this morning. my next meetings aren't until next Monday as well. ludicrous.
put a 4pm meeting in my diary for today? I was about to slope off home and now I'm going to be stuck here forever....
Found out that you can create your own Awards on it so made one called the 'Cutie Award', what i didnt realise was that once created they are available for anyone to use company wide, found this out because during the training session (which most people in the company were on) it flashed up on the screen. Been a wreck laughing at it for about 3 hours.
Got my leg put in plaster Friday for 3 weeks (potentially 7) due to tearing my achilles' tendon. Signed off work for 2 weeks. Just about used to using crutches. Waiting for parents to drop off the painkillers doc has prescribed me.
Thinking of ordering a tablet as I can't sit at my PC desk. Did I mention I'm bored already..
and I'm missing Bill Callahan Saturday due to this..bollocks, been waiting years to see him :(
that's fucking agony :(
my housemate's meal of misery, ladies & gentlemen...
feeling pretty good about today tbh
but not a fan of any weekday other than Friday tbf.
Got a couple of days off over the month for various things so that'll be nice.
Got scratched in the cornea this weekend. Doc gave me the option of wearing an eyepatch or sunglasses to help in heal.
Shouldve gone for the eyepatch. I look like that prat from glasvegas.
It was badass.
Yep, not as deep though so small mercies!
Going to see The Wolf of Wall Street after work with a friend. Didn't realise its three hours though. I hope it's not shit.
but my steak was a bit fatty and I choked on some fat and was a wee bit sick in my mouth and I had to swallow it so my clients wouldn't notice.
My client's company is about to float on the new york stock exchange ANY MINUTE NOW and i'm quite excited about that.
also somebody has found my coat containing my credit card and has dropped it off at my mum's house. Today is getting better.
(my old one is red and i own a lot of green tights/dresses/trousers)
i am wearing it in bed because it is BEAAAAUUUUTIFUL
+ pls link to elf coat
no pix just a red duffle that really came into it's own when paired with green tights
But i'm off to amsterdam in a few hours, so pretty happy about that.
on one hand, it makes my laptop look a bit rubbish and the screen now has a certain fuzziness to it. on the other, you can't see what i'm doing unless you're directly behind me. opportunities for skiving: greatly increased.
