I'm hungover. Desperately need a McDonald's though I'm going to be super later for work. Shit.
Will get back at 10pm. All for a one hour interview that I'm pretty sure is a waste of time cause I'm so inexperienced.
so stay positive.
is just a state of mind. Good luck.
Panicked, gave a shit answer really early on and couldn't recover. Thanks for the wishes of support, that helped. It was a long shot anyway but I think they'll give it to someone with more experience. I think I came across as too nervous an socially inept for them to trust me with anything...I wouldn't hire me. Also they basically said "so you don't have any experience of this then?"
and that I don't think I'd enjoy working there as much as I thought.
There's nowhere to buy wine
turns out my left shoe lets water in now. got to work and noticed it had split right across the sole, don't think they're even that old. rubbish.
want to go home and play persona 4 and not have a damp foot.
about to sign off of DiS for the day coz the workload is going to be brutal between day job and then freelance work :(
I'm babysitting my girlfriend's parents' dogs though so it's not that simple.
Woke up at 5 as one of them had decided to come and join me in bed and was climbing all over me.
Then at 6.30 the other decided he wanted to go for a wee and sat out on the landing barking at me to let him out.
Places I do want to be: on a beach somewhere in the Mediterranean, or on my couch in my pants catching up on Game of Thrones/Mad Men.
nice to be back on an even keel
Tired from halfs of >5% ales.
Next time I see you and Jennie (sp?) I will have had more than 90 minutes' sleep. I'm amazed I didn't end up falling asleep on a park bench or something.
bar me fogetting to bloody start recording the show at first. will have it edited up later.
right now: roll and sausage and a coffee.
Saw X-Men DOFP on Saturday which was pretty good. Introduced the new GF to all of my friends at a bbq/house party on Sunday which went great. Drank loads on both nights too but didn't get a hangover. Found £20 in the street too. Everything is brilliant.
My boss isn't in so Today can already take a long walk off a very shot pier, my fellow worker bees are being very keen and irritating, will spend today applying for jobs I might give a shit about
I already miss Moker
like you did ;)
but i do feel very borderline at the moment about a whole lot of superfluous stuff
Blissfully peaceful. Couple of horses and a donkey in the field next door. Work is not so appealing after that. Still, Swans tonight!
now i know how abs kelly must feel.
Work will be pretty rough this week. Yay.
had a decent weekend. Mad garden party in les banlieues with so much bbq and alcohol, weed and Donna Summer and Fela Kuti and DJing with a friend and some of my vinyl and a double rainbow.
Then yesterday went shitty again. Had a good date last night and a decent heart to heart with my boss. Tonight seeing an old friend I haven't seen in FIVE YEARS and then going to see Follakzoid. Wup.
You always have the best weekends.
I'm currently dying at my desk. This McDonalds hasn't sorted me out.
I've never known a McD's breakfast not to sort me out; did you get porridge or fruit or something equally ridiculous?
With a black coffee. Think it's finally working.
If not call a doctor
Not at all in the mood and everyone is doing my fucking head in already. Fuck off today!
Started off relaxing, ended emotionally.
All is fine now though.
but saw them yesterday, and they were rilly good. any band that names their album after a line in adventure time is already by me.
right cunt of a mood today and is taking it out on me, and I'm probably gong to wallop him in the face as I am not in the mood for being messed with today.
My chest is fucking KILLING ME as the intercostal neuritis is back, this time on the left side instead of right, which is quite odd and so so painful. Going to guzzle diclofenac on an emopty stomach shortly.
Got to go to some work quiz night tonight, compeletely can't be arsed, am off the booze and it's going to be such a drag.
Had an absolutely tip top night with my mum and sister last night though, which has really made me happy, so overall, pretty good I guess. tl;dr
the war on drugs tonight which should improve my mood
partied in Elephant & Castle with some top chaps in the evening, then went for a roast at The Albion on the Sunday.
On Monday I had an MMA\wrestling class followed by a 5K run (at a fairly leisurely pace, I'm not insane) and pretty much lazed around listening to records and doing laundry for the rest of the day.
I'm not really sure how it's supposed to work but it should be fun.
5 days in Athens has worn me out but it was just amazing. I don't think I'll ever get another opportunity to play at the ex-mayor of Athens' house (which has been squatted) to 3,000 people while fireworks and flares are being set off with fire breathers back-flipping off the stage. Also, I really like Athens. I miss it so :(
Really want to go back there.
of where I want it to be. So today I guess I'll
- go sign up at the local gym
- look at some of those "recipe" things and make a meal plan so I stop eating my way to irreversible health problems
- make a uni careers appointment (essentially, every job that interests me is out of the question for one reason or another. so it's probably just going to end with "look, the only thing you can do is admin", but I need advice of some sort)
- sign up for relevant-ish things to do over the summer that will make my CV look slightly less pathetic than it does now (I don't actually have a CV.... should probably get on that tbh - won't exactly take long)
- look for part time jobs
- start studying the fuck out of Japanese & Korean
All of which seems impossibly easy when written down :-\
there's no point of applying to 90% of grad schemes if you've never done an internship, right? my year abroad really fucked that up for me.
i saw a big load of brown liquid being transported and think it might have been chorline for a pool
can't be bothered to rejoin the gym though. think i'm fit enough now that i'll live forever
they're doing suspended animation now in hospitals so everythings fine
I love the smell; much better than when I lived behind a KFC
Really CBA with this today .
I've been here 2 and a half hours, all I've done is drink tea, eat a sausage and egg sandwich and a few chewy sweets. Soon be lunchtime, then coast through the afternoon and I'll be off.
they both seemed lovely, despite his love for ash's free all angels and the gross beer they were drinking.
it's not right, not right.
also saw some bands. i like bands. well. i like bands i like. mostly.
Just got referred to the hospital by the dentist cos i'm a big baby man.
free all angels
Great summer album.
Imagine! No one prefers nu clear sounds
Got loads of boring stuff to do today like change our address for council tax and register with the new utilities companies. I'd happily pay someone to do it for me but that service doesn't seem to exist.
I told my boss I was going to be v late. She wasn't even here when I got in.
This is like and exam and an interview and a trip to the doctors.
I've not done any paperwork for it.
I might just do what Rachael does and draw nudey cartoons.
Came up to me while I was outside the TV's house waiting for her to get home saying she was locked out and her only spare keys were at her mum's in Henley on Thames and none of her friends were in and all she had on her was £10 and a bus pass which she wasn't sure was enough to get her to Henley and back. I was confused and scared so put her in my car and started to drive to Reading Station, where I said I'd drop her off and take out some money for her to borrow. But then as we drove away my gf cycled past and saw me in the car with this strange woman so I stopped and explained things and made my gf get in the car too. While this was happening I found out the last train to Henley had already left so just drove to the nearest ATM and withdrew £20 to give to the lady. She took it and texted me her name and number so I could give her my address details before disappearing into a nearby pub where her "barman friend could get a discount on a taxi to Henley". I've written off the £20.
my windscreen wipers failed on the M4. Couldn't see a bloody thing so had to pull onto the hard shoulder where we waited for a bit but the rain just got heavier. So I called the AA only to find my membership had expired so I had to rejoin at a cost of £150 and it took over an hour for a van to arrive during which time we had taken shelter underneath a bridge and wrapped ourselves in a sleeping bag I had in the car. We looked like hobos :(
Great bank holiday.
Sorry but I laughed at both these posts. Great work.
...wait in the car?
is not to stay in your car?
Well that's me told. I had no idea about that...
That's ridiculously dangerous, something like 10 people a day are killed doing that
This site says its 1500 people killed or injured on hard shoulders every year - http://www.safermotorways.co.uk/statistics
I think my 10 a day might be for all road accidents, I definitely heard it somewhere
Shall I report her?
we need that artist to do a satirical painting about it
with 50 "likes":
"They should concentrate on the crooks charging 20 plus quid for a train ticket inside the station..." :D :D
it was absolutely smothered in fist-sized blobs of bird shit, not even the white kind of bird shit, was pretty much all brown. I went to the Audi dealership to try and get my wipers fixed but their repair centre was closed, but I took the opportunity to try and wipe some of the shit off with some baby wipes I had in the boot. But all I did was just smear it all over the car and a posh yuppy couple and a salesman were looking at me with disgust from within the gleaming dealership building.
completely forgot to get a ticket for SWANS and now it's sold out
see if anyone on DiS has 'un
In better news it's sunny and I have band practice in three hours, which will be fun. Still have to get my CV in order to apply for jobs and shiz tomorrow.
