well, my first Saturday before actual Saturday (that's on Saturday).
Is it national don't fucking bother coming to work today day? Because there was no one on my commute in, and I appear to be the only person in this 15 person office.
do any LMEs fancy an after-work pint later?
actually doesn't even need to be central
I JUST WANT A PINT (later)
i have to cycle after tho so will have to have just one (two max).
but it depends on something else if I'll be able to make it but I'll let you know.
Generally though more ad hoc mini DiS meets would be good. I want some new friday drinking buddies.
Office is half empty, roads were quiet.
normally it's standing room only.
Back to being busy today though, bah.
it's been my Tuesday since, er, Tuesday. You can all fuck off with your weekends and such.
On the plus side I'm playing 5 a side tonight. And the new Spoon album and a double shot americano is making my bus ride to work a joy right now.
So my weekend will mostly be spent burning the flat down.
as I've been on an HTML course in Farringdon all week. I've come back to an empty office and nothing to do which is alright.
tuesday was also my friday
double frdays you see
My I don't have to run day.
yesterday I was accosted by a little girl on the tube asking me where my hand went. Her mother was really embarrassed and apologising loads.
I told her it was okay, happens all the time etc, the I told the little girl that a crocodile bit it off cause I punched it.
Children are so innocent wqith their lines of questoining. There's a presenter on CBeebies called Cerrie and her arm stops at the elbow, and sher wavbes it about cheerfully ons creen and high fives other presenterswith it, and I think children who have watched that from a young age and will grow up to be much less intrigued by bodies that are different from their own. (although horrifically, lots of prejudiced parents complained at first when she was introduced as a new persenter. Anyway, i digress and children's perception and nature/ nurture is a whoe thread of its own.)
are a bunch of twats tbh.
If anything, she upped the number of dads that watched CBeebies with their kids!
Volunteer with the Scouts, so am used to all sorts of questions. I often tell a bit of a fib just because it makes me laugh.
Do get offended by adults who ask me about it within a first meeting or whatever, as it shows a complete lack of decorum.
Cerrie is absolutely great. Was really heartening for me to see someone with such a visible and (if you excuse my term of phrasing) unsexy disability get a role like that.
and the fact that she wears tops that make no effort to hide her arm.
it's nowhere near 5pm!
and I am actually goig to do some work becauee Jules is away to some week long rave in a cave in croatia, which means I can stay out of trouble for once and not get dragged off to the pub like most fridays! I am procrastinating, I need to fill out my annual review forms for work and I CANNOT BE BOTHERED STARTING IT. I actually have quite a lot to do today when I factor in facial and leaving at 4.
i'm going to get a mask done today. put acid on my face last night
asre you going for a peel?
I'm not peeliong yet, it's too early in the year and i need ot get my summer holiday out of teh way. If you're avoiding UV and want to peel, go to platinum skincare and get a TCA peel (start off with the weakest.) I've only had one done and it was a couple of years ago and the effcts have lasted that long (just a bit of acne scarring lifted away and some bumpiness around my chin.)
just a glycolic. my face feels full on grease right now. i'll go shower
just clay today for my face can't wait
takews a couple of days for it to settle down afte that. Not too much clay, don't overdry it!!
that that girl is a DEMON.
some of the most innocent days have turned into wild nights of swiss-cheese-type brain activity and cracked limbs.
was a guys leaving do. 2 guys ordered 50 buffalo wings each. ate about half of them.
the bierkeller boasts it has over 50 odd beers! didnt do a decent ale :(
still.. had a few games of pool (lost them all) and table football (won them all).
also ate free cheese and bumped into (possibly) the 2nd tallest DiSer.
for a few years very close ot the printworks byt nevcer went in. is it as bad as They say?
but its your run of the mill place with a cinema, nandos.. other chain places.
was quiet last night so was alright.. find the general mood of most city centres on a weekend bad personally but it doesnt seem any worse than most places
my arm might have been twisted!
tired. back aches after sitting in a really uncomfortable chair for two hours at a stupid meeting from 5-7 last night. meeting completely contradicted everything I'd previously been told about my career prospects so I'm confused.
need to think of a good plan for the weekend. want it to be a good weekend, if not a great weekend.
And moderately grazed elbow.
No, save your applause. I don't want to make a big deal of it.
One of my gf's friends is staying this weekend and I can't be arsed. I had to be social at a wedding last weekend and we're visiting the in-laws next weekend and fuck off I just want to sit on my tod in a darkened room doing nerd things.
shower at work is broken (just cold water) - which will make running next week a bit less nice
have the house to myself tonight! going to crack on with some drawings and stuff and do some exercise, might get out all my music stuff as well, will be fun
trying a 10k run tomorrow - going to take it a bit slower and i should be ok
then a friend's birthday thing
then on sunday doing a carboot sale
then having some nice food
on ONE TICKET to go and see Goat in September. Fucking hell. This city is out of control.
fuck sakes today is going slowly
feeling a bit low about eating.
having felt poorly all day. feel a bit weak today but lots better. Can you manage some stodge/ nursery food type stuff?
god they really really missed the mark with it, eh? nothing close to as charming as the first one.
going to tesco for lunch, touch me
I don't know why. I'm hoping my run will sort it out.
Nothing else to report.
I've had a yumyum and some millionaire's shortbread and I'm still gurpy! Going to go for lunch and a facial, and hope that spin will help after work. MEH.
Also realised taht watching 6 gfoot under before bedtime might have something to do with recent dead people nightmares.
Irritatingly busy day with system problems slowing me down at every turn.
5:30 needs to be now.
the old 'lobe elope
but youre not :(
yes, i got some media tickets for TOAM r
I have two media passes for Tom Robinson tonight at The Jazz Cafe, but I'm also supposed to be going to the 100 club. I'm not sure what to do
