I'm quite wet.
But I have. I don't think I should have.
finished a job application last night, gonna give it a once over now then send it.
I am bereft. I am heartbroken. Actual life will never live up to this. Genuinely sad.
I've only watched to the start of season two. But yeah it's pretty great.
IMO they were clearly pushed into a couple of very soapy plot points and dealt with them very, very well (certainly better than the Smash/steroids stuff in S1).
From there on out it was just a pure joy.
it's on the usa one, not sure if it's on the uk one
it's on the sky box set thing if you have that?
otherwise I think the whole 5-series set is under £30 on amazon; I got it for a couple of people at Christmas. I cannot recommend this show enough - it's so great, and that it manages to be so good without relying on being super-harrowing or cheaply shocking is amazing.
obvs on chrome you can use Hola, but i'd quite fancy getting this through my xbox/tv too...
not router wide, really, but UnblockUS is a pay service (£3) that lets you change the DNS settings on the xbox (really easy) and then lets you switch which country your Netflix is set up for.
it's amazing; it makes you the US for watching Hulu, the UK for watching iPlayer, and stuff like that. you'd be surprised at how good the Canadian Netflix is. loads of recent movies.
but it's blocked in work. UnblockUS is the best thing about having Netflix. I wouldn't have it without it.
pretty sure you can manually change the xbox dns settings
I rewatch on an almost daily basis and still find joy in it, I keep noticing new things and jokes and small bits I didn't pick up on first time around. Definitely changed my life.
goosebumps every time <3
I should probably give it a couple of days before I watch this.
my radio show is online now. have a listen eh?
made quesdillas last night. they were really good. might make marckee's butternet squash sage thing tonight.
I was trying to decide if I should take a brolly this morning, looked outside, seemed fine. got down the stairs, nope it's actually pissing it. TOO LATE you've made your choice
Searched about my flat for one knowing full well there wasn't one.
As a Glaswegian why the fuck do i not own a brolly?!
i use that as a shield from the rain. i also have a gLOLf umbrella, but it's fucking massive. millenenium dome massive
However anytime you walk with one unless of course your on the golf course or in the countryside you get looks of disgust from everyone else.
rightly so. golf brolly wankers.
Tasty as fuck and piss easy to make
that's going on the list, cheers Lo.
I might have a go at that. I've still got loads of chili leftovers to get through first.
had some amazing salsa and sour creme on the side.
also, I'm fucking nailing the coop meal deal atm:
chili bean wrap: £2.75
starbucks drink: £1.99
total saving: £3.09
i came in early for it tho...
I have tasked a third party (well, two) with scouting out potential alternative employment prospects for me. Less moaning on popular indie music forums, more doing something about it.
And now we play... the waiting game. Or Hungry Hungry Hippos.
was dancing with an actual girl and then i was like 'nah my mouth's too dry cya'
Think i was frivolously punching road signs on my way home
i tried to tactical chunder at several points and for some reason nothing came up. maybe i'm a ghost?
feel like going for a wander around jesmond but it's too far away
quite enjoyable really and surprisingly heartwarming given that I thought it was just going to be full of bleak scenes. Did anyone else spot Bradford Cox?
Said to my girlfriend about Bradford Cox when we left. Tried explaining about Deerhunter, total blank expression.
Aye, good performance and good film all around.
as i spent last two days zoning out at my desk and i got a lot to do (that also relies on other people sending stuff over to me in time) that i have to finish by 10th march and that is going to be mighty fineeeee
at least it's sunny and i have my health
"dunno when is the hole in your mouth getting sorted out"
... that IS the hole. the whole hole. surely you mean "face"?
you've done yourself there
But as you can see im not very good at typing what I meant this morning.
Going to see Future tonight. Really fucking excited.
I feel like a proper functioning normal human being again.
I had breakfast on the roof.
and then, this morning I was scared to get into the shower because the rain was so heavy on my skylight in my bathroom.
I'm gonna book masel a holiday someplace warm
I really want it to stay sunny. Make this happen.
Busy again. Shit.
Off to see this tonight. Mrs C_B booked it, and I only found out last night it has Les fucking Dennis in. Hopefully he'll break out the Mavis Riley and it will be a great night.
not sure I could stick les dennis tbh
you never know, you might enjoy it anyway
we went to see Rain Man with Neil Morrissey in the Dustin Hoffman role. It really wasn't as bad as I'd anticipated.
Cos the thought of neil morrisey in that role sounds utter shit.
in guernsey tomorrow morning, which would have meant getting a flight to southampton just after lunch today. not doable (especially since I have lunch at stravaigan at 1, which I am not bloody well missing).
I stayed up quite late last night reading work documents but I slept really well and feel ok today despite being up since 6. I'm quite liking being busy and involved at work again, but at the same time I'm looking forward to my deals finishing this week so i can go back to faffing about and getting home at a nice time.
I love there Baozis
Me too, I'm gong to get the pork belly one.
Yum, i'm pure starving now at the thought of those
But it's fine because apparently it's just a symptom of my dysfunctional heart. :'(
I do have beans, though.
Oh. Watched ATM last night. Probably the worst film I've ever seen.
(heinz tin) on toast with grated cheese at 1am. BEANS <3
That's the same size tin I had too. I normally eat a whole big tin myself but I ran out of those!
Perfect excuse to eat junk food all day and skip gym tho - yay
Gonna listen to 45:33 some more today and dance at my desk and tell my colleagues to fuck off.
watched night falls on manhattan last night - old sidney lumet from The Nineties. andy garcia doing "acting". it was pretty good really.
when i woke up this morning i looked at the sunshine and thought "fuck this i'm not going to work i'm going to victoria park"
and then i went to work anyway because of something, i don't know what. stupidity?
...banging on about how fucking sunny it is!
About to head to the west end though. I shall report from there. (It looks like there are dark clouds out that way.)
I look forward to your lunch critique! :)
ATM is the worst film I've ever seen is what it is is what it is. It's a...horror? I don't know. Just bad. Not good bad.
I keep forgetting to reply to you because I'm so self absorbed. I saw Andy Garcia in Grease the musical. Everyone was shouting his name out. Didn't know who he was, pal.
self ab...oh, right. fair enough then.
still...afghan whigs though innit?
i shall not watch ATM - just imdb'd it and it looks unbearable.
i feel like you probably saw ADAM garcia in grease didn't you YBLC?
the day before that i did a comedy show to 50 people and it got 8/10 in some shitty student paper
an up and down affair
Going to see PotUSA on Friday because I CAN. Yeah.
1 The packs of printer paper always have just the right amount of paper to fill the hole in the copier machine
2 Cups in vending machines are always the exact size needed to contain the drink you want
3 The petrol always clicks off JUST as the tank fills up - I've almost never overfilled the tank and spilled everywhere
