im hungover on a monday :(
always feel more awake than when i get in for 9.
Don't wanna get up early every day though, i'll feel like a sell out.
I feel completely destroyed today.
it was too warm last night
despite being hotter than the sun in my kitchen, my washing didn't dry so I had to wear my shirt that is slightly too small for me. normally not an issue as I'm wearing a jumper over it but think I might actually melt if I have to wear it all day :/
I'm sitting in a cafe on one of the busiest streets in Edinburgh trying to wake myself up. Had a bacon roll a coffee a tea and a coke. Still asleep. I am lecturing at 9.30 on the use of warranties in mergers and acquisitions and I can barely say 'indemnity' and not so sure of my name either. Does anybody want to swap some panini World Cup stickers? I have about a million swaps.
Some mad sticker swapping went down
My mate has started a group on Facebook about sticker swapping for World Cup Panini stickers.
Who wants in? Don't worry, you don't have to befriend me on Facebook, I can share the link.
about how he and his pals buy loads of packs, go to the pub and open them, put 'em face down on the table and then they each take one. THE TENSION OMG. Really sad we never ended up doing this :(
but I forgot about it almost as soon as we decided to do it. I blame the Bengali Tigers
Having done a bit of research, there aren't many adverts or vacancies in Lothian aside from agencies (which may or may not mean there are actually jobs) so I'm writing a course to help people apply for no jobs..
It's 11. I'm now 'hotdesking' in my edimburgh office. I might redraft my powerpoint slides actially to make the course a bit quicker/ easier. Today's only saving grace is that my shoes are AMAZING and my legs are nice and brown. Otherwise I would shoot myself in the face.
to recover from this one.
do not want
1. forgot my headphones
2. forgot to buy more coffee
not just hoovering and what not, but two trips to the dump, entirely emptying the garage, and then using a toothbrush to clean the bathroom. it was BUSY.
i am, thusly, knackered today. and my hip is still giving my serious jip. :(
this week though; mortgage, house hunting, viewings, cloud nothings
I don't think the gravity of the situation has dawned on me yet. I'm probably still half asleep. didn't get to bed until after half 12 last night, which by my wanting-to-hit-the-hay-by-half-11 standards, is very late. Went to see Jonny Greenwood, BBC Concert Orchestra and Jessica Rivera last night. Was lovely stuff, but after a lazy hungover procrastination ridden Sunday, we ended up needing to eat dinner (take away pizza) around midnight.
seems like an absolute age since we were prancing around the After Dark on Friday with J0hn; me carefully explaining to each of the bouncers how I wasn't quite as drunk as normal. hmmm... still felt rather tired on Saturday morning when I got up and nipped to Lidl to procure some croissants and pains au chocolat.
we tried out our new barrel BBQ on Saturday, which went pretty well, although I didn't quite allow enough charcoal. I secretly blame the vegetarian for making me feel like I had to keep half the BBQ meat free, despite having a metric tonne of meat to cook.
The worst bit of the weekend was needing to get some garden furniture on Saturday morning. whilst I wasn't that drunk on Friday night, there's a slim chance I might still have been marginally over the limit by midday, when whilst in a hot car driving around the out of town shopping areas, there seemed to be an inordinate amount of police cars swarming around. I'm pretty sure I saw one driving someone away from their car. I was getting wound up. still, we managed to get a nice enough garden set - not the one that was almost twice as much, that we really wanted, but still I'm happy.
why does the local Tesco superstore only sell compost in April?!?! I have potatoes that need more covering.
I did have a nice weekend though which is what pisses me off more that i'm stuck here and not outside doing fun stuff.
Went to a boot sale and boyf bought me the MOST AMAZING lemon jug. And 2 cereamic swans. And Rumours on vinyl <3
I can feel myself shouting at someone very soon.
fixed the hood of my stove (not a euphemism FYI), went wethercrawling and then had an awesome Sunday lunch with my new housemate, which included steak followed by beers in the sun. Even managed a 5K run.
Still need to do my laundry mind.
Chest cold finally bitten the dust, very good weekend spent getting wasted and eating olives
Thought today was gonna be the bank holiday so properly gutted to be in work
Google homepage has made a rubik cube and it's fucking eating my morning whole
with people dressed up as star wars characters going up Lothian Road or somebody has spiked my tea.
flat hunting instead
Didn't seem right to create a thread about it. Last week in this job, so trying to work out what to steal. Scissors. Pads. Phone? A clock?
which is really where it's at. And once you're out the circle, things change man. Things change.
so spending my morning looking through photos to see if i can recognise anyone. and then disown them.
they still have local election candidates i think.
Well as we know Farage isn't aware of ALL his councilors ;)
gon' be a good day.
Good weekend though. Went for a run Friday evening, had a few beers, watched Jools Holland, watched The Thing. Not bad.
Saturday did a load of jobs. Took my car to the garage to be washed, came back, hoovered it, cleaned the bathroom, did washing, hung it out, got it back in when dry, hoovered the house, watered the plants, cut the grass, found time to have bacon and egg sandwiches in between and wash up too.
Went to Birmingham to watch the football with some old work mates home by 9, sat in the garden eating chips and kebab meat with a couple more nice ales.
Yesterday food shop, pretty quiet day, went for another run. Went out for food last night for my sister's birthday.
Just trying to coast in till lunchtime now.
Yesterday came down to Sandwich in Kent to stay at the Salutation, the B&B run by Steph and Dom from Gogglebox. Sadly they weren't around, but the place was amazing, stunning rooms, cocktails in the gardens, perfect weather. On the train back now, going to buy some beers and sit on my patio. GOOD LIVING.
But I obviously kept the most boring one for last and the deadline isn't until august, so it's not like I'm doing anything.
The university is slowly going into hibernation, which has its good sides, but is mostly just depressing, knowing that I'll still be working on that essay for the next 2-3 weeks
urgh I don't want to go to school
It sounds sad, but every other day is looking-forward-to-drinking-this-evening day, or a looking-forward-to-drinking-tomorrow-evening day. My life will change for good in a few months time, so it's not too depressing.
Taking my mam and dad's dog for a walk coz I booked the day off after my mate's wedding. Living it up, yo
you better be getting that on the snapchat vine
WRT representation and ineffability of trauma. if anyone knows any somehow related essays or texts i'd be grateful
but you've already paid it off in full?
and a couple of Masters essays on addiction in Soft Machine and genre in ...Dead Roads.
If any of that sounds useful, PM me your email.
Terrified the dough's too dry
in my head today. Someone help me commit to ideas without getting unconfident or something (and feel free to come round to hold me at gunpoint so that I record before I play guitar and take notes or when I come up with phrases or riffs or whatever)
