Good day to you all. Have breakfast, it's good for you.
no milk for the porridge
And half a snickers bar.
So happy its friday - I have a really bad case of uveitis and I spent all monday at moorfields eye hospital but had to go back to work the next day. It hurts a lot still and I have to wear an eyepatch/endure pirate jokes
where pumpkin gets a key thrown in her eye and allana gives her a special Halloween eye patch with a pumpkin on it most touching scene in tv history 10/10
Went to Arcade Fire last night where we won entry to the VIP section so was right up the front and had free food and booze. Best £2.50 well spent.
Pretty jealous, like.
and someone pounced on us. It was great.
They were like WOW YOU'VE WON?
Some woman tried to get us to go on the thing near the entrance where you can see the ENTIRETY of London and it was free but I just couldn't be arsed.
then took us over and someone gave us the wristbands/neck thing. Then we went and ate a load of free food and then went into the section right at the front of the stage. We were like 3 people from the front and it wasn't crowded. It was great.
hanging from a rubber band?
But I think so.
We were sat RIGHT by the Barclaycard View bit at the north entrance of the site -- was that where you got free VIP things meow?
how much backlash from family and friends do you think we'll get for banning any photos of my new baby from facebook/the internet?
Your baby, your choice!
it's about the only thing i feel really strongly about to be honest. i'll bombard them with photos of my dog instead (like i already do)
it was totally fine, I reckon it's definitely a good idea.
You child has no opt-in regarding their `online footprint` so I think it's really shit plastering photos of them all over social media, by way of acute parental narcissism, before they can understand the implications of it all. Really shit. Especially with an organisation as inherently untrustworthy and truculent as facebook.
I think that in about 20 years we'll be seeing a few cases breaking out of people being estranged from their parents (be it for reasons of abuse or familial fallings out) and being unable to remove links to this potentially harmful and identificatory content from facebook which they had no complicity in sharing.
People are generally cavalier by nature on social media, it seems. Best not involve your young children in it as well.
everyone likes actual photos. Maybe send them with a nice card or letter or something. Much nicer and it removes any right to whine about an online photo ban.
Website. That's what we do...
Still put the odd photo up, nothing they would be offended by though...
One of my favourite two player card games (Star Realms) got released on Android/iOS today, so I anticipate spending an even larger proportion of my working day than usual hiding in the toilets.
I think my massive geekiness might be out of the bag.
it's Arcade Fire's fault. They were pretty good, especially for the price. The stage and the lights were cool. Drank some overpriced wine out of a carafe thing. Then lots of beers. Then more beers. Spent too much cash.
Couple of weeks out of the office after this and today's going to be grim.
actually need to work loads today and all weekend :(
£2.50 day was good. Going to the Albert Hall tonight to see West Side Story, neneneneneneneneamerica. Exeunt.
Haven't had a proper full day at work since Tuesday.
Was a good little show eh? Also saw alcxxk's beard and fishplums on sax for Arcade Fire.
Are you going to the National £2.50 day too?
I'm not hungover but still managed to get confused by the question
I quite fancy avocado on toast for breakfast but I don't want to buy a whole sack of avocados or an entire loaf of bread
i smell an argument
still don't know where to watch the footers later, but i'm determind to make it good cos i've taken a half day at work in order to do so.
just did an epic post in the british sea power thread over on the music board
have a good weekend y'all
Fridays are tough.
despite getting home quite late and half cut.
they are nice, I like them. I wasn'rt even hungry at lnchtime yesterday and had to actiually force my lunch down (might just skip lunchtoday if i don't feel hungry again). I reckon I'm gong to stick with this oaty fad. I'm going to get some honey and nuts and banana and choc chips for tonight's (/tomorrow's) oats.
I just want it to be tonight Now, so that I can cuddle up on the sofa and watch Columbia (hopefully) beat Brazil and I can SAMBA KARAMU FIESTA FOREVA and get pure full and laugh and sleep. OH WEEKEND. *scrutinises watch*
I want to go an get my shoes re-heeled and my vapestick fixed but it look like it might start drizzling!!
Going to have some toast.
well until the week after next, going for a drink with some former work colleagues tonight and then somehow packing and heading to the home counties for the weekend.
almost wish i hadn't because it's raining and i don't want to go out
