This crest was on my bus
What is it?
but those griffin (?) things seem to have had their necks run over. possibly by a bus.
france is celebrating their glorious victory in 1945
trying not to get too annoyed and ukip about it
was good shit.
today is my friday. off to oban tomorrow for a long weekend.
Pretty bored of everything tbh.
I slept relatively well again last night, that's two nights on the trot, feel good for it.
I've got a big meeting at 10.30, that's about all i've got to report
Got rained on waiting for the train. Massively tired after rocking the fuck out last night. Very little going on in work too.
Pretty miserable tbh but seeing an old friend tonight, should cheer me up.
Haven't had it cut since september
had 6 scoops of ice cream for dinner.
Would very much recommend the movie.
Great film and definitely no pre-requisite of needing to be a football fan to enjoy it.
Lovely story, very well told. Would whole heartedly recommend
by thinking it's a film for football fans or something. Really touching.
it's London United and that's their crest!
watched episode 4 of Fargo last night, weakest so far
not really feeling today truth be told
Still not sleeping well. Cancelled my second date with the hot American guy last night as I didn't feel like seeing anyone. We due to go for dinner tonight but I just want to go back to bed.
My band are playing Brixton tomorrow if anyone wants to come. We're playing our first gig since I got that shitfaced in the day time watching the rugby that by the night time when we played i forgot the lyrics and how to play any of the guitar bits. Not rock n roll or whatever rock n fucking embarrassing. Anyway, if anyone wants to come then please do. I shall lay off the whiskey until after we've played, and not drink from sound check time.
I'll have a couple of pints like.
...we sound checked really early and then proceeded to drink an obscene amount of booze, by the time we got on we could barely play, on more than one occasion one of us fell over, and just generally it was an absolute fucking joke.
The audience was mostly friends, so they just found it amusing. I awoke the next day cringing like fuck :)
I've had quite a few of them. Mainly when I played bass and could get away with being drunk and slurring backing vocals. When there's only two of you in the band and you're the lead singer/guitarist it's just pure hell! But you're sat after sound check from 6pm onwards and it's easy to have a few pints, then a few more and then by 11pm it's like FUCK!
From experience it seems Glasgow crowds are generally more forgiving that a lot of London crowds...
Too busy celebrating the fact that France won World War II.
I had a date last night with a girl I really genuinely liked and ended up fancying a lot. It's reminded me why I should never meet anyone I actually like. I am now paranoid, nervous and overthinking everything. Yelp.
- how long do I have to wait before trying to meet up again?!
- what if she didn't like me that much?!
- why did I decide to talk about the marquis de sade on a first date?!
- we went to a sort of hipster place, does she now think I'm a hipster?!
- why are her texts so frustratingly concise?!
- is my french too awkward and not good enough for this to work ?!
do what you feel. life's too short for 'waiting to text her; bollocks. She'll appreciate it, if she doesn't then she's a whore.
But stop with the self-doubt, if she's a bit older she will probably appreciate someone with a bit of girth.
yeah, I'm leaving that one well alone.
he has to be brave!
and I'm an unwitting highroller for a finance and energy company.
this isn't going to work.
Plus she's way prettier than me and the language thing.
hi guys, welcome to the LBC thought process
you're special too, we all are, let her be the judge
definitely HERE HERE HERE
you're a suave mofo, just go fer it
if you wnat you can make this a self-fulfilling prophecy, in which case she WILL tread all over you in her graphic designery Parisien shoes, and spit on you and break your heart and then leave. Or you could just be yourself, have a fun time with her and see what happens next.
It's what I'll do. Am out with friends tonight and will try and see if I can fix something up with her at the weekend.
I played for laughs to a degree. Though I have had all of those thoughts in the past 24hours.
She's not that type of graphic designer either, more the street art guerrilla style character.
GO OUT WITH FRIENDS TONIGHT and have fun and see her at teh weekend and take it from there. It can be as easy or as compicated as you choos eto make it. I am too old for games, I like an easy life, and I think most people appreciate you for giving them one too.
It felt awkward. La bise is not supposed to be awkward, you do it everyday.
or Besos in Spanish
Beijos in portugese (which is why portuguese people sign off texts to you with 'BJs' instead of 'xx', which can be quite alarming until the penny drops).
it's two kisses, one kiss on each cheek. Or three if you're from the south. Typically used to say hello/goodbye to friends/family in France. When you meet new people of the opposite sex for the first time you do it to. Between same sex it's more close friends.
or two kisses?
This ho ain't any different, just go for it.
from two colleagues (but who I don't know what they do or which department they're in):
'...been drinking that yoghurt stuff, that one with spina bifida somethingorother in it'
doing a bad racist 'chinese' impression.
was on a pretty serious conference call with my bosses but had that dis email with the thom yorke dancing gif open in the background staring at me the whole time
because of funes from some works which are being carried out on the building which overlooks us. I have to see a nurse shortly to do some kind of occupational health assessment and might get sent home, even though I'm ok (apart from the repeeated migraines I've had for the last week and itchiness and sneezing).
Anyway, it's my Friday, I can't stop singing the yaya toure chant (to the tune of Nono Nononono Limits), and so I don't really give a fuck.
Look at this Plucky Critter!!! http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/supervet-watch-clip-bionic-cat-3508706
I thoughjt it was hayfever and I had put the migraines down to staying up till 4am two nights in a rwo wathcing Gossip Girl and existing off red wine, prcessed cheese slices and Revels. I'm still not convinced I'm tarred. Athough my eyes are really runny, but it's great because the slight red rimming is making my eyes look even more BRIGHT GREEN than usual. like a cat < 3
and I refuse to let them make my ipad network accesiible, because then if anything happens to our work IT system, they can wipe my entire (personal) ipad. which makes it kind of imposisble to work form home (although they are giving me a laptop next month when we so our hardware upgrade.) I might just put some pretend meetings in my diary and go out for a wander for a bit. I've got a two hour lunch planned anyway which should break things up a bit.
in my early 20s I used to put red lip liner under my eyes like eyeliner for that very reason!
this guy http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/ca/Matthew_Macfadyen_2007.jpg
he looked a bit arrogant, I can see why he became an actor, definitely has more presence off screen than on though, looks like his waters run deep irl
incidentally i watched spooks for the first time on the weekend. was good.
I don't watch really watch spooks, might check it out. I was going more on his P&P performance
I watched it for ten hours once. Then applied for a job with the MI5. Watch it, watch it.
Sadly, I've reached the conclusion that The best way to make time fly by in work is to actually do work.
I feel like I've been done. And yet here I am, ignoring work and checking my watch.
Gonna make another in 5 minutes.
the day will go really quick?
Was due to have a one to one with my boss this afternoon but that's been cancelled
Just ride it out.
The milk all curdled but I keep stirring it. It looks awful but tastes okay.
I offered her soy milk for her tea because I know she's lactose intolerant. She looked dead pleased.
Turns out I'd run out. I'm worse than Hitler.
that after I drank it turns out it was two days out of date. I was fine. I am a hero.
for some reason.
would counteract it?
played ping pong last night
it was absolutely brilliant, excellent soundtrack, great direction and some very genuinely unsettling set pieces.
Going on a date tonight, haven't been on a date in ages, I presume a top had and monocle is still appropriate dating attire?
on us tomorrow too are you?
what have YOU done today
and after some serious detective work of my own cracked the case of the mystery bus crest! That's loads
(I'll probably be worse)
Oh yea all about picking up the spelling mistakes today.
and opt for the jeans, shirt and casual shoes combo.
at the moment I usually end up wearing vans/macbeths everywhere I reckon I could pull off something like this.
I've been a boot wearer for 7 years and I have never looked back
For Now I Am Winter as the soundtrack, awesome idea!
if I am ok to go for my collagen sunbed this afternoon, I don't want to go green.
by using natural sunlight?
I don't have tar posioning though, although the tar fumes are probably not helping my slightly sore hayfevery eyes.
Victoria has just had to leave after having an asthma attack :(
I did mess up but it's hard to pretend I actually give any fucks anymore. It wasn't even a big thing but I hate feeling patronized.
Today can already get fucked to infinity.
Three months early, but my faculty have said there's no problem with continuing my degree.
I can't begin to explain how relieved I feel right now :-)
I've had a lot of good experiences, but living abroad (at least, alone) is probably not for me. It's going to be weird to be matching timezones with DiS usage again >.<
and i have the office to myself, leftover pizza, a bottle of red wine and some new albums to listen to.
i fail to see how this could go too far wrong.
ooh if anyone's in camberwell this evening come to a free show at the joiners. my friends june madrona are over from portland and they are lovely/well good. and it's free. but i WILL be there, just in case that spoils it a bit for you.
on the subject of dates, if someone cancelled a second date and then cancelled it again the night after, would you think this person wasn't interested and not both asking them again?
although, if I was the person instigating both dates then I might expect the other person to plan the next one if they were really interested in meeting up.
and then he wanted to see me last night (Wednesday) but I was ill/not in the mood. Then he has asked to see me tonight. But I have work today, tomorrow and a gig tomorrow night so I need to get everything ready for tomorrow. I could just invite him to the gig tomorrow? I just need some time to myself tonight.
the worse that could happen is that he'll say no. I guess what it comes down to is, if you've enjoyed the time you've spent together so far and want to spend more time together in the future there's nothing wrong with letting the other person know. If they feel the same way they'll probably understand.
once i met this girl at a party, made a date the next week which she postponed, then cancelled the rescheduled one coz she said she was busy with uni and she'd get in touch to sort something later and i was like yeahyeah. didn't hear back from her and then sometime later she asked a mutual friend of ours why i'd never called her back for a date. errrrrrr.
but that said, if you do wanna, just ask, mannnnn.
but generally if somebody is keen to see you, they want to see you, and they see you. Unless there's a good reason. Do you have a good reason?
When I just wasn’t feeling up for going out when the night came, and in my experience it hasn’t affected getting a second date or whatever. As long as you’re apologetic, say that you do really want to see them but tonight isn’t good etc, I think you should be alright. Think suggesting an alternative night to meet up at the same time as cancelling is a good shout as well, shows you’re still interested and that.
Or you could pull a sickie, there’s no arguing with that.
gonna pull a sickie.
At least now you are telling the truth when you cancel! <3
I wanna get a ticket to see St. Vincent in Birmingham. Dunno if I want to get one before they sell out (I can imagine them going quite quickly); or risk getting two and then trying to find someone who wants to come with (difficult, due to friends living mostly scattered around the country and not near me; and I don't think I know anyone who is massively aware of St. Vinnie's ouevre).
acknowledging the Midlands as a part of the UK, too
