Made me chuckle, that thread.
Nothing to report today. Feeling pretty meh about everything. I think the smog is bringing me down.
i didn't find the 'smog' that bad? A bit gritty on the cycle home but that's it, really.
Had a bit of an odyssey yesterday. Went to supermarket with flatmate, but he couldn't find his wallet, so we drove to st pauls to his office so he could find said wallet. I went for a stroll while he was in the office, got back to the car to find it had somehow locked with the keys still in. Had to ring a guy in clapham who had a spare key, took him about 90 mins to get there. Started shopping at 7.30, finished at 11pm. natch.
still, went to pizza express on a 2 for 1 though, which was alright.
There's this horrible yellow-y hue south of the river (YEAH WHATEVER) and everything smells weird.
I'm okay really. I want pizza now.
im amazed anyone goes to pizza express other than on wednesday's. It's alright but not great. Certainly better pizzers to be had about. mmm. pizza.
not their chilled ones you get from Sainsbos. They never cook properly. Always floppy.
the mega ones from asda are great though.
quite liking the Chicago town one with bacon and chicken on it. have had it twice in the last month.
one more piece of university work. it's about 30% done. I have no enthusiasm for the other 70%, but if I finish it today I can have tomorrow off before going back to work at the weekend.
I'm taking that room in that flat, though, provided the landlord is fine with me not starting to pay rent for two weeks. Yaaayyyy for getting out of this shithole!!!!!!!!
doing his Sid James impression somewhere
Been doing it all week, it's really annoying.
Made plans to meet up with a match from Tinder this weekend, really looking forward to it which is strange for me as I generally don't like first dates much.
Oh wait, LEFT eyelid. You'll be fine. Probably just tired.
Good luck with Tinder match!
It was good. Had a German round for a drink, too. That was alright too. Ordered various nerd gem accessories off the internet after. Looking forward to those arriving.
Tonight I'm getting Old Fashioneds after work then going for dinner at a venue tbc. Might just get a load of Mexican food.
Got some garden furniture off that Gumtree last week. Properly domesticated.
At our housewarming party someone said "I don't know what you were complaining about, this place is really nice. And by 'really nice' I mean 'fucking huge'."
It's hardly a mansion but we're all used to tiny Cambridge flats so it's a nice change to have space to swing the cat in.
Now he's a nightshifter he's probably tinychat exclusive.
I got to pop the top on some a new jar of coffee this morning and I'm really enjoying the new Cloud Nothings album. Tonight I'm seeing the ex-TV and our cats, which will be pretty great.
Feel like I'm going to be haunted by the cringeworthiness of it for the rest of my life but hopefully offloading some of it to you lot will help. He was a young uni graduate, bit DiSsy, probably likes Pavement, probably an ok guy, but what he's doing in comedy I don't know.
First of all he didn't actually tell any jokes. In lieu of jokes he just waffled about himself in an enthusiastic way, possibly hoping that comedy would derive from his enthusiasm. He said he wanted to be an actor and at the age of 12 he got his West End break, only not the West End but the Barbican in "North West London somewhere", he asked an audience member if they had heard of it for some reason. He then skipped forward to being 18 and going to uni to do Chemistry. Then he started talking about how bunsen burners are really great and asked the audience if they liked bunsen burners. He asked someone if they knew who invented the bunsen burner, "Bob Bunsen" the man replied and this got the biggest laugh of the set although it was just a titter. The comedian was then like "Yeah, but did you know what else he did? ... eh... eh?... Well he also discovered two elements. Now if I was Bob Bunsen I'd be pretty annoyed that I was just remembered for the bunsen burner, that must suck!" And that was it and he moved onto the next bit which involved a long story about how he got two stamps on his Caffe Nero loyalty card (which he kept annoyingly referring to as a "gift card") and that he didn't know if he should tip the guy who gave him the stamps before deciding he couldn't ever go back to that particular branch. And that was it. Off he went. I gave him 1 out of 6 (the audience were marking each stand-up.) I blame Michael Mcyntire for this awfulness.
Sorry, just needed to get this off my chest.
poor tbo :(
I was thinking "I wonder what his username is?" throughout. If he's reading this, then good.
A shaggy haired loon who came on and whispered to the audience, asking us what's better than receiving a blowjob in the morning while the sun warms your face (he then proceeded to fake orgasm). He got right in the face of the a woman in the front row, asking her again what could be better than that, before quietly telling us that the answer was his "juice collection" before taking out various juice drinks from his bag and taking a sip from each. For his finale he mixed the juice drinks together and downed it in one, convulsing momentarily before breaking into an orgasmic rendition of Haddaway's What is Love.
I could imagine stumbling in drunkenly on his set late at night at a festival and thinking he was the funniest thing I'd ever seen.
Just remembered that the compere said that the scores are emailed to each comedian afterwards so tbo will see all the 1s :(
I'd think that guy could go places
if it seems like he's going to make a suggestive comment and the air is uncomfortable, and instead he goes on to something completely inane.
would have gone for four myself though
Suddenly I feel for this bloke, comedy is really hard.
Do you know it? My ex-housemate took part and she got through to the next round. There was also a really funny American-Egyptian guy who really ought to be on TV. He was like an Arab Doug Stanhope.
So many tempting seersucker sports jackets
only done the shacklewell arms one (which i won, but is a v friendly one). Only egyption due i know is omar hamdi, but he's a) welsh egyptian and b) already a pro so probs not gonna be that guy.
Does she get up before or after 9?
I was supposed to be going to spain next week but now I'm not.
it was going to be an absolute pisser of a job but I love the north of spain so am a bit gutted.
threw them away.
last night i was in the old blue last for a drink
how would you rate it out of 6?
not in the "have a couple of things but they're not urgent, can put them off", properly nothing. I had one thing to do yesterday but that's been canned, and the thing I got to replace it got reallocated to someone else. best thing I've got lined up is going to the post room in another building to get a parcel for someone and leaving it somewhere in that building. that or just going on youtube ALL DAY, or have a nap in the IT room.
ended up being three pints and a burger #LAD
OMG/Old Man Gloom tonight.
but it's been cancelled.
On the plus side, it means I don't have to collate AQOS drunk at midnight tonight (or hungover tomorrow morning).
Interview, T-minus 60 minutes.
Doubt I've got the job, but I don't feel too bad about it all.
I ended up pretty drunk last night.
Was also sporting my new jacket, wasn't till i got to the pub and i caught myself in the mirror did i realise i was also sporting the danny zuko look.
Not really in the mood today
but does anyone have that pic of balonz as a balloon?
