Morning dis. How are we all?
I accidentally got up too early this morning :(
You got up *very* early, clearly.
i think i'm the only one in today at work again. likely to be loads more productive, but loads more boring :/
but only to get his laptop so he could go somewhere else. he might be back later to drop it off.
highlight of day so far: changed a printer cartridge :(
I don't know why I wrote this.
- it was pathetic and still well below market rate
- got told I should be working at least an hour longer a day, which pro rata would actually be a pay cut
+ my hair's looking alright today
When can I come and test ride?
Just ride up on your... oh, sorry.
+ Went to the local pub last night, chatted to regulars and now considered a regular.
-Got a meeting with the freight transport authority today but can't remember why so am gonna have to wing it
-forgot to pay the council tax
Also today is my friday.
et mon cul c'est du téflon? (bite my shiny metal ass in French, as I learnt last night)
It's really odd.
'is my arse non stick?'
Pretty good, not too sweet, lots of fruit. 8.3/10
got a yoghurt
tell me whats ya flavour
reduced fat greek style, strawberry compote with cinnamon granola
but it was over snapchat
So last night I watched 5 hours of The Inbetweeners and I thought i was crude. Not sure why but I have a bit of a thing for the one with a helmet head. Bit weird.
I have a really important meeting at 11am which might kill my career but I don't care, I requested a meeting with the CEO of our company who is never here to tell him I need the right tools to do my fucking job (no not a spanner). I've gone above my boss who is the MD because he's on holiday for ten days and has left me in to absolute chaos.
I still feel hungover from the night before last. I'm meeting mouuseee hopefully on the weekend.
In other news there is none. I'm all in black today.
I'd love to go work in a record shop for a couple of years and drink tea than be in this armhole of an industry.
hope it goes ok meeting mouuseee
Also, he wants to be unbanned uf you;re a moderator he say's he's sorry.
(p.s. i am not a mod)
I thought I was the only person who'd been banned for being rubbish?
he kept wanking over balonz' profile photo and wasn't getting on with life.
After downing 4 double expressos I went in to the meeting and properly went for it! And I got really good feedback, and I think, respect.
I'm never organised, nor prepared and I was today so I think he was pleasantly surprised. I had print outs with bullet points to discuss and everything (this is v. organised for me). He invited me as his guest to some awards bollocks next week. I just hope my MD (when back from holiday) doesn't think i've undermined him. Which I kind of have.
"So MITS exactly how much do you need these tools? Show me on this tool" *points at crotch*
White shirt. tan. Jeans. Expensive shoes. Collar up.
its very cold.
i just want to get it sorted, really. Been an oddly busy august so things have been hectic, plus MD over there is on holibobs lol so hence next week. As said, should be fine, but ffs don't leave me hanging like this lads.
who thought about "pushed back till Monday" as a sex thing. When the person in front of you pushes back so hard onto you that you go back in time.
Might need a lie down.
I'm going to spend tomorrow waiting for furniture to be deliveried and attempting to build it. I haven't had a day off since april (apart from weekends pedants) and am pretty burnt out.
Saw Inbetweeners 2 last night. It was fun.
Today i have lots to do, pitching for a new deal, and some other boring work crap. Then I am going to leave the office at 4 and train it through to ediburgh, where I shall meet my client for drinks and food and then go to see a show at the festival. EXCITING. Well, better than average thurdsday afternoon/eve.
Despite sleeping on a bed that is about three times her height if she stands on back legs, small black pug managed to leap onto my bed this morning to wake me. How the hell she managed to get in my door i just don't know as it wa jammed shut.
I can't wait for the weekend and relaxation.
and it wouldn't get a reply. So fuck you, I'm not telling you what's happening in my life any more.
But my birthday did pass without comment earlier this week. So a semi-fuck you to the morning thread remains.
Mine's Valentine's Day btw, not that any cunt cares.
Back to work, everybody
Fishing for birthday greetings is most unseemly.
You'd never catch me doing that.
happy birthday for last february saps
Hope you had a good one, you wonderful person you!
i will cut you
to coincide with jabberwocky?
Driving through the middle of an Estonian National Park between the seaside town of Pärnu and the Hansa Medieval town of Viljandi where I am to attend a funeral this afternoon.
The coach has wifi and I'm bored as this National park seems to consist only of thick birch forest and the attendant bird life
And it's a rickety old coach from the mid 90s by the looks of it
Oh wait, a field with about a dozen storks in it
I'll leave the morning threads to someone else in future.
We need fewer certainty in our lives, right NV?
need to take my own name's advice and use more safety emoticons in future.
both are on Lower Marsh which is behind Waterloo Station if you don't mind walking for like 5 mins
but we fucking won by a mile, so can't complain.
he asks me about the postgrad course I've a place on and whether I'm going to take it or not, the other day I got tired of telling him "I don't know for sure" so I told him "yes". He's taken very seriously and has started making plans with others about planning for my departure lol.
so far 1 1/2 hours of that has been meetings.
changing my name will be super messy and I will probably regret it and don't do it.
but I really want to.
I need to get a new passport soon, and last year of uni is probably a good time to do it (i.e. before starting job applications).
I might just do it.
It shouldn't, because the passport people were talking out of their arse.
I changed my name when I was 16, for family reasons. Have a good think if it's really important to you before jumping in.
In a year I'll only have contact with a handful of people that I know now. Plus, it's a name the me in my head has been called for 12 years or so. Is it super pretentious though? Should I even care?
so I can PM them back the name and you can tell me if it's totally horrific and / or pretentious and you would totally not want to be friends with someone called that? Many thanks.
and how can a name be pretentious, especially if it's what you call yourself? power to your arm, PM. positively redefining oneself is awesome & punk & gr8
feel free to send me yr chosen name but you shdnt have to - say it loud and clear to whoever you want
It apparently made things awkward confirming to her mortgage advisor that Spongebob was really her middle name.
have responded. you gotta do it
And I'm going to do it. A couple of months of awkwardness / people complaining and then it will all be fine.
Working Saturday, less so.
apart from my specs, of course. Need to ring a solicitor soon (this is unrelated)
I'm so glad I didn't buy tickets.
I'VE JUST REALISED TIME OUT, BUZZFEED AND EVENING STANDARD HAVE USED A PHOTO THAT I TOOK...CAN I CLAIM COMPENSATION?!
But it's a fair amount of hassle. And depends on loads of other factors.
2 trains in , 2 left to go (today) 7hours in, 2 hours to go. Got woken up by this drunk guy from cork at 5am calling some Spanish girl in the room a cunt. Was actually quite funny to be fair.
