im really really really tired :(
feels like a Hump Day
how are you?
Gonna try to pile through my work and sod off early.
Frozen sazeracs though. OH my.
i am wearing a mustard coloured carigan today.
in that yesterday was my Sunday and tomorrow's my Saturday. i think that mean i need to take 5 times my normal amount of cigarete breaks today
No internet access at work at the moment. It's going to be an awful day.
I need food badly. I was so hungry this morning in my hungover state I ate cous cous salad for breakfast.
Tonight = GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. Probs get food in Peckham before.
Tomorrow = rugby. Probably at home. Need to save the pennies. Gonna check out Sodo Pizza in Honor Oak in the evening I reckon. Anyone been? Might be one somewhere else too.
Sunday = boyfriend's running his first 10k, so I'll go and... watch? Hang out somewhere sunny afterwards.
Got up super early to let the letting agent's cleaner into a flat I no longer live in, only for them to be an hour late, then ask if it's OK if they come back tomorrow instead because otherwise they'll have to pay for parking (!)
Fuck off, mate (yeah, sure, no problem)
Is it home time yet?
Day ruined already. Also on my way to a conference, I have no idea what its about and my boss said she might leave early and leave us interns on our own there. Thanks for that ...
ever so hungover
Work was mad busy yesterday, so we were like 'let's save it for tomorrow when things are a bit quieter'. Then we went to the pub to celebrate this brilliant idea. And stayed in the pub for a long time.
Looking forward to cracking on with all the work we didn't do :(
Looking at flats in leeds this afternoon.
Getting evicted in a month so it's getting pretty tense.
I'm off work until Wednesday.
I was in there for a short bit last night to do a stint at the food bank but had to run off just after 7.
what's her choir? I wnat to join a choir.
They practice somewhere Southside.
We got there about 6.30 and they were just setting up. The food bank was just coming to an end I think. They filmed it for some TV thing (Commonwealth Games related, I think) with a bald woman who's apparently famous - Karen something?
yeah, the bank shut at seven, so we must actualy have crossed over. Shame!
Glad it's Friday.
Just realised I'm going to be playing football for the majority of the Man Utd - Liverpool game on Sunday. This could be either a good thing (Man Utd win/it's a turgid game) or a terrible thing (Liverpool win/Exciting game)
but I predict a turgid score draw.
and how I've been feeling lately. I capitulated last night and took a zopiclone and today I actually feel human. I feel clear and courageous and I know what I need to do in my life to sort various things out. I am a wee bit zoned out, because I didn't get up till 9 and I'm only just sipping ocffee now, but have no anxiety and feel zen like. ZOPICLONE. Super stuff, I'll post you some if you like. x
When I was younger I had all sorts of insomnia troubles and got prescribed some. Always conked me out but always made my stomach feel absolutely rotten the next day...
like when you've had too much coffee. it's never affected my stomach though. *abs of steel*
I've got some zopiclone left somewhere. I'm always reticent to take it though. Not really sure why, mainly just because I have a finite supply and don't want to run out.
I think as much as anything else, work is just draining me emotionally and physically. : /

Too soon to move?
I think If I have more then I'll use them when I need them rather than thinking 'oh but I'll save them for when it's really bad'
I don't think so, I know it's not even been six months, but we're just not the right fit for each other, and so with the commute it's making me more miserable. Definitely wouldn't mind the journey if it was great for me, but it's not unfortunately.
Just need to get my arse in gear and start looking/sort out some other things that I was hoping to do perhaps a bit sooner than planned.
if you know there's no future in it for you (I really should listen to my own advice).
up until now I was hoping it would turn around/in denial/scared/felt too drained to actually do anything when not at work other than drink wine.
I'm going to wallow for another week, then go on holiday and get a tan and then come back and ATTACK LIFE. (and probably go back to my old job, but with brown legs.)
I don't know at the moment.
Trying to raise capital/get the confidence to approach some business acquaintances of mine with a proposal. bricks out of my bum bum.
that sounds brave and amazing.
We're chucking the manbagement team out of our ngihtcluba s they're underperforming. Going to rebrand it and i might just run it myself for a bit. I could do that, right?
(Wrong, Feel sick thinking about it.)
which is the reason I am terrified. We will see.
I reckon you could, why not? everything else you do seems much harder.
(it's was more like 9.05 and I only got up because i could hear someone rattling my binlids out the back. So to speak (Chance Would Be a Fine THing.)
She only usually goes out for an hour at most because we don't have a cat flap and we're worried she'll run off.
She's already got a running feud with a bigger cat which looks like a leopard!
Poor Radish! I'm set for a day of worrying :(
Pollution central, like downtown South Central or sutin.
It's grim, the weather is lovely but my eyes and nose are streaming constantly. Running this morning was a bad choice.
Wanna go out tonight but my friends are lame, Helena Hauff, Tobias & Efedemin and Surgeon are all playing Paris at 10eur nights tonight but they all want to go to shitty bourgeois cocktail bars that will be rammed and over expensive. Really need new friends.
Haven't got so many plans this weekend. Wondering what I'll do. Might go see Monuments Men. Will cook some stuff, maybe invite some people over for brunch. If pollution clears up will run.
I think me and LBC would kill each other (through partying, not stabby stuff.)
I might visit you soon though. My cousin lives in St Germain.
My cousin's husband's family own some kind of car empire in france. One of the guys tey work with, who I met at the wedding, had the surname Pécheur. Is that basically 'PEACHY'? Because if so, i am changing my surname to Pécheur.
I am not changing my name.
I'm going there in May - please can you recommend a good (read: cheap) area to look for places to stay for a couple o' nights?
airbnb is your best friend though... Can take you for a pint/dinner too if you like. unless it's a romantic weekend
Generally - East and North is cheaper/hipper/funner than South and West.
RIGHT BANK FO LIFE
and I don't know anything about it.
Someone said something about the Saint-Paul metro stop, but everything seems well expensive round there.
Ace, yeah - that'd be cool. I'm staying for one night with my ex then 6 other friends are coming the day after for two nights. Then we're all heading to Primavera. Not sure if it'll be easier to get a place for just the two of us though.
Everything is well expensive everywhere. My advice - near Bassin de la Villette, up towards Gambetta, maybe by Voltaire. I've just drawn you a giant triangle around Pere Lachaise basically. If not maybe try the 13th, left bank, near Tolbiac and BNF, which is bit less well connected but still centralish and may be cheaper.
or you could try my hood, Jacques Bonsargent, Strasbourg Saint Denis and Chateau d'Eau. Lots of turks, antillais, west africans and asian prostitutes. And cheap bars (paris standards) with lethal belgian beer for 6eurs a pint, and the best falafel in paris. Warning, it's gentrifying fast though so prices could be sky high as it's really central.
Cheap but near good stuff would be preferable. Actually, just cheap will do. Will have a look into the places you mentioned, thanks.
- most destinations and attractions etc are more than 30 minutes metro ride away at most
You have been missed!
this fucking site!
(nah, quite the opposite.)
are you ok? Did you really have a MB? I hope you're ok.
I have nothing exciting to report (apart from I am planning holidays), just sad and stressful stuff that nobody needs to know about.
yeh. I'm on the mend now thanks, well, as of last Saturday. It wasn't even gradual, just BAM feeling better. weird. Imma go on three free holidays this year. THFREE. where you off?
It's not true of everybody, but many people do have to hit the bottom rung before they can get back up. Onwards and upwards, as they say!
I am going to:
LONDON (next weekend, I hope)
I was going to do a train holiday to Italy but I actually think I just want to get away somewhere fast now. somewhere REALLy hot so that I can get brown and smell of summer.
it should have been [to be deicded] in early April.
we looked into interrailing a while back, but i'm not sure i could hack the uncertainty (not quite the right word, but, ya know) that comes with it. and it's a bit gap yah.
Th ehuy driving the van was a proper BURMA too, so hot, and he was laughing as me a I took the picture. Right outside my office, Right as the managing partner walked past.
Yay, I fancy a new job anyway.
I will remove you from my list accordingly!
I liked the frank updates.
it was killing my battery, data, and stuff.
going out on the piss tonight. need to go into town to get some cute shoes for it i reckon, maybe a shirt or something as well. nothing too hench, but something that says "i'm part of this bar crawl but not part of it" ya know
rest of the weekend: wanna see Her at some point, Johnny Foreigner in town tomorrow so might go to that, will probably go library one day
Last night I went to a night in Brighton called Fag Machine and saw a band called Faggot. Faggot were good, the night was a bit Phoenix Nights though. Nice to see people I haven't seen for a while though.
My friend's t-shirt made it on the Jimmy Fallon show, with four of them being handed to Will Smith. Amazing.
half-day today so I can take advantage of the £3.50 all you can eat Indian restaurant in town.
I'm movngin to brighton. is it actually decent food?
I've just realised I've not eaten since i had crisps yesterday morning. Woops. I could really go a curry.
That's ace! The place is called Bombay Aloo - the food is good for what you pay although there are so many better curry houses.
When do you move to Brighton?
slept in again. it's raining. going to dundee later.
things are looking pretty grim.
why are you dong this to yourself, why?
going to visit family. fucking hate dundee.
MAKE THEM COME TO YOU.
gonna sleep for all of it
We could have dragged her through surgery but it wouldn't have been fair to her and there was a good chance she wouldn't make it through so we made the decision to let her comfortably go to sleep with lots of cuddles and she was purring! It was the best thing as I can't bear for her to be in any pain or discomfort.
I'm completely heartbroken but we have comfort in the fact that we gave her so much love and affection in her final year and she was totally pampered and happy with us. No one wanted her in the cat home as she was overweight, old and expensive so we took her in and she brought us so much joy. So thats a good thing. Still sucks so bad though.
Tonight - Going to my parents for dinner, wine and cuddling animals.
Tomorrow - we had booked to go to Brighton weeks ago so we're still going to go for a distraction.
Sunday - Roast dinner with good friends.
Oh man, I'm sorry meow
I am so sorry sorry. I had really hoped it would be better news. she couldn't have asked for a more loving home and even though it must have been an awful decision, yu know it was the only one to make. I'm devastated for you. Sending you and Sam all of my love xxxxxx
I hope you're ok. She definitely always seemed so happy and loved. <3
x x x x x x x
she looked like such a lovely thing as well. you gave her the most excellent existence, I'm sure.
i am so sorry meow. :(
despite taking an absolute drubbing at MMA last night. Back to the home counties this weekend to visit my folks. Might watch Grand Hotel Budapest otherwise I'll be doing some web dev/watching UFC 171.
went to the o2 last week for the gustafsson fight, great fun
really hope Condit takes out Woodley, he's my favourite, he'd get the win over Hendricks next time
I think the smart money is on Hendrix not sure how it's going to happen though, Hendrix is one of those people who seems capable of knocking anyone out in the first round, but if it goes past that I think it'll turn into more of a grappling affair. It's crazy how much weight he cuts though, apparently he cuts down from 220lbs? That can't be good for his conditioning.
I like Condit's chances against Woodley, although Condit is a bit of a late starter and if Woodley comes out and takes him down early that could cause issues. I'd also take Condit over Hendrix all day in a five round fight.
220 to 185 isnt too bad imo if its over the whole camp duration. i.e. you would lost 20pounds in training over 3 mo by eating relatively sensibly and then the rest can come off in a gradual cut in a week. Just gotta eat and train smart.
I hope Hendricks doesnt play it safe and try to ground out a decision. I want them both to just come out and start throwing like theyve been possessed by the spirit of diego sanchez.
Hope condit gets the V over Woodley and Lombard punches the fuck out of Sheilds. Should be a great night.
agree that condit would take Hendricks in a 5round, love condit, one of my favourite fighters. Want to see him against Nick Diaz again.
I know he's a stocky guy but that seems like a brutal cut.
I would support Lombard but fighters making comments about another fighters style being boring is a pet peeve of mine.
oh fuck i totally forgot he's a welterweight.
Yeah, thats a crazy cut.
But shields *is* boring though. Sucks the enjoyment out of almost every fight he's in!
is that he's not particularly gifted (apart from his skills on the ground) but he does the best he can with the ability he has, which I can actually respect. It's not like he's an elusive fighter or one that's hesitant to engage.
Lombard is just trying to goad Shields into fighting Lombard's kind of fight when really I think it's more about trying to find the best strategy to counter shields style. Also he said exactly the same thing about Okami.
Condit is so good, ever go on r/mma, the manlove for Condit is hilarious
going to bask in the sun on the thames at lunch, see if that helps
Flamenco Festival, F1 & UFC this weekend, bazinga
so booked tickets to go to Blind Woman's Curse/Lady Snowblood on my own. might have a shower as a celebration. Also, decided to move to Nottingham with the guy Im going to be in a band with. Actually going to be a real functioning person again.
will be delighted I showered aswell :)
I've got nothing planned for this weekend, might drink excessively
Not long up. I hate you. I did not receive enough sympathy from you last night for falling over a wall btw.
Were the awards good?
oh shit, are you ok?
Ha, how the fuck did you manage to fall over a wall.
Going on the facts that you fell over a wall and that i am not long up it's probably a very good thing that we didn't meet up for a beer! :)
Aye it was a good wee night in the end.
my friend ross dared me to walk along a wall and i fell off one side, caught on, and then fell right over it and down the other. I HAVE NOT A SINGLE BRUISE OR SCRAPE. I am bionic (rubbered.) i never usually listen to him because he always gets me into trouble but last night it felt like the Thing to do.
Glad it was fun!
to celebrate her new job at DF!!!
BUT DID YOU HEAR ME. Imagine- your office is King Tut's WahWah Hut?!!!! she is SO lucky. I'm delighted for her.
Recommendations? Well probably just drink the 78? We may end up hitting town. I just don't know. Are you out?
I do like the 78.
Undecided as yet, i might but then i might not.
Big possibility i'll take it easy tonight and shoot out the morrow night.
Three of the best ones have gone in the last 6 months. Bad, bad times.
Got my quarterly catch up over recent vinyl purchases with a friend tonight then we're going to try and pop over to a 'wrap party'. My monthly art gallery tour of London tomorrow afternoon followed by two lacklustre attempts at celebrating friend's birthdays in one night.
In the park with coffee and pastries and a book
Have a good day suckaz
going on the basis that the bridesmaids dresses are lilac and the bride's in white.
And black padded waistcoats. With red ties.
The tie was black. (wasn't it?)
Also, my red tie is perfectly acceptable (it's more of a burgundy)
with the padded waistcoat and red tie. But there is.
And I didn't look for it just to piss you off at a later date either.
so i feel like grey is going to look alright on super-tall thin lad, average build me and podgy dad
are you having a summer wedding? Probably go shark skin.
so yes, something not like slab grey for sure.
I sent up a special delivery bag to Manchester for a mate to put iPhone and passport in (that I left up in Manc), it was sent on Wednesday next day delivery and still hasn't arrived.
Went to go and track it with receipt I stuffed in my pocket and it turns out its just the receipt for the card transaction. Getting worried I won't be covered if its lost now.
I'm on DiS in the daytime for once. Is AQOS on?
I've got the day off today as I'm going to a wedding reception later near Horsham. Been to BHS earlier for a present (got them some print that says "IT'S WINE O'CLOCK!" and then bought some insoles for my shoes because these new boots are a bit loose from Boots. I love being a 15 minute Tube from Oxford Circus.
Then I went Amore's and got the Set Breakfast 2 and had my brekkie with all the builders building things.
Listening to some 80s playlist on Spotify whilst trying on my wedding outfit - navy blue houndstooth blazer, waistcoat and trousers. Black Chelsea boots. Sick vibes.
Should go to deli x in deptford for breakfast.
It's so fucking nice,
Deptford's a fucking ballache to get to from where I live. Probs walk from New Cross?
it's right next to deptford train station. but they make like an egg hot pot with tomoato and chorizo and spinach in it and omg https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc1/t1.0-9/p320x320/1794728_10100100767759446_141300428_n.jpg
Because I'm a maverick.
also i have been developing a friendship with a married woman. it's a bit like a film
One Hour Photo?
(obviously I won't say any more than that though)
i initially asked her out and that didn't work but i've met her husband and they're both dead sound. we just seem to have a lot in common and find chatting very easy. i've never become friends under these cicrumstances before and it seems strange. we've just quite easily and comfortably fallen into being pals.
i don't think i am, but how do you know
Tread carefully, especially if you become friends with her H because that's when things get bad if you're going to bang her. X
it's a big jump from a married couple being pals with someone to them having an open marriage, no?
(am I defending cat_race??)
i'm not looking for that at all.
One minute youre happily discussing the new booster pack over a few cans. Then 3 hours later your in a gimp mask being bummed by the wife with a strap on while the husband wanks off into your shoe.
and she relied that she totally would were she not married. So of course they don't have an open marriage. moreover, I think it's a highly inapporpriate person for somebody to say. All you need to say is 'I'm not available'. Not, 'I'm not available but here's a morsel of hope to keep intersted / on the reserve list.' Hate that.
" i have been developing a friendship with a married woman. it's a bit like a film"
but we do get on well so idk. i'm keeping myself/the situation in check
just don't hang out alone with her. Don't. Nothing good will ever, ever come of that. She's made it clear she finds you attractive, you're comfortable hanging out with her and now you think the husband is a good guy.
Every single way you look at it: don't ever, ever, ever hang out with her alone. Ever.
and is scared to go to sleep alone?
oh sure that's fine then :')
sound like they came out of a police interview room
but then again they're both into magic cards, so th-
- holy shit, yes they are definitely swingers.
but surely it could just mean that she thinks cat_race is ace but she's already with someone. I personally wouldn't reply like that but I can see how someone would think it's alright.
christ, it's not like she denied the holocaust or anything
because you can hang out with them as a couple
just responding to PO saying what she said was inappropriate.
rather than specifically to you. just didn't think very hard about which 'reply' button to click
You're the only one who knows the vibe. it's just when you write about it on here, i am visualising a potential scenario unfolding, probably because i am old and have witnessed all sorts of shenanigans unfold in the lives of certain friends, from otherwise innocent encounters.
it's my over active imagination. enjoy your friendship :)
and i did bring it up because it's unusual to me.
Now I need to spend the afternoon to find a way to tell them they're a fucking idiot without actually calling them a fucking idiot.
They are, though.
