Hey. I share so much about my life on here and dis is basically my diary. Should probably stop doing that as much.
Can't waver in your commitment to the morning threads now dd
Ok so I'm so tired and achey and have driving lesson this morning and we're out of coffee beans. HOWEVER. The new bathroom is fitted and I'm about to have the first shower. #socioeconomicclass2. #hopeyourheadgetsbetter
First frost of the winter this morning. Cold in my bedroom.
This had it's upside: when I open my curtains of an early morning, I am always 'treated' to the sight of the big, fat hairy rocker guy whose kitchen faces my room prepping his breakfast - in the nude. This morning, he was wearing pyjamas.
always nice to logon and see a friendly face.......actually using the word face, rather than 'username' does make me think its a bit of a shame that we don't have a little bit of a thumbnail of our webcams view next to us when we're logged on (cue the haters.........but I just idley thought)
rather than threads about "I've just had a kitkat" we would have "Look at me eat this kitkat" or "how many ways can you eat a kitkat" or "where is it funniest to put a crisp".......although that could just degenerate to "look at this crisp"
I quite like that people on here fall in love based on very limited knowledge of what people look like.
This this post if you've found yourself googling "drownedinsound [username] who the fuck are you?" before*
* I wasn't responsible for all the tiramisu searches, I already know she's lovely on the eye ;) god I need to shut up
but I wasn't thinking along those lines, I was just imagining seeing disers gurning rather than having to go ;D still I guess that your mind works ;D .........Im on an altogether higher plane today.
Incidentally, I don't know what tiramisu looks like, any pics? (teed up for weakest visual pun ever)
Love the weather like this. Freezing cold and foggy. Amazing. Everyone looks great in a coat and scarf. ALthough theres an emo on the way to work whos determined to show his arm and calf tattoos until he literally freezes to death. Got ANOTHER house viewing today after the last one didnt happen.
The letting agent didnt turn up as they 'panicked' about their itinerary
Got it. Now massively poor though. Will be strange to live in a house with space.
Good job you're paying!
but my show has appeared in a few major podcast directories so that's a victory. what are the chances on apple getting back to me? probably zero right? :(
only just leaving the flat now.
I want to go back to bed
sensed the water was cold but my flatmate was there and i was embarrassed to say anything, took the cold cup up to my room
albeit mainly form home, ut it meant I missed my gym, classes so now today I'm really cross, and I have a reanosably stressful day,. I'm speaking at an event tonight that I'm not really geared up for, and worst- an old client that I don't like has reappeared wanting to be best mates* and I don't want to be. yes, business really is not that much different from the playground.
*i.e. for me to do 30k job for him for £300, and then he'll run off any not even pay the £300. that kind of thing. And he's bitchy. Cannot bear a bitch.
I dislike how long everything takes in the winter:
Summer - step out of door; unlock bike; cycle off.
Winter - put coat and scarf on; put gloves on; step out of door; realise that gloves affect your manual dexterity; take gloves off; unlock bike; put lights in bike; put seat cover on bike (because bike seat is wet even when it's not been raining); cycle off.
but i can see it getting old pretty quickly
Actually feeling refreshed for the first time in a while. I have just started back on the valerian root and it really does help.
Tried that circle thing with my cat last night. It kept me entertained for about an hour. Clearly this 'no dating' thing is turning me into a crazy cat lady.
I must try it!
I NEVER have trouble sleeping usually, but for the last couple of weeks I've noticed that I'm waking a couple of times during the night and feeling too restless to get back to sleep. I do eventually and then when my alarm goes off I'm just exhausted. I have no trouble getting to sleep- it's STAYING asleep that's bothering me.
Life is a bit hectic just now (work is crazy, and I never have time to exercise which I think is a contributing factor in this) but I'm generally happy and having fun, no major life worries. HAYULP.
mixed results, I think it does improve things, but not if I'm having a really bad spell.
I was feeling really anxious and depressed and my sleep was severly disrupted, I think it became a vicious cycle - as in the lack of sleep was making me anxious/which in turn wasn't helping me sleep. I read up a lot regarding Valerian Root and found that it also has calming aspects to it, so I gave it a go. Though my advice would be the pure valerian root tablets as opposed to buying natural sleeping tablets (the dosage is too low to make a difference) I would advise 300mg upwards. The ones I take are pure valerian root 300mg. It kicks in about 30min after you take them. So far whenever I've taken them I've slept straight through and its always a deep sleep. Plus my mood has definitely improved. Probably because of the sleep.
I may head to the shop later for some of these - I just want to be able to sleep 6 hours straight. it doesn't help that I'm working across time zones at the moment and having to get up for calls in the middle of the night sometimes, but last night my latest call was at 9pm, I was finished work by 10, in bed by 11, asleep straight away and then up at 2 for an hour and then up at 5, falling asleep about 15 mins before my alarm went off. I know it's my work brain refusing to switch off, and nothing will override that, so I think this could really help 9so long as I only take it when I don't expect to have to get up for a 3am call I guess.)
ffs mp don't hold out on us like this
Massively going to create a series of progressively more enticing circle for my cat to sit in later.
feels like it's going to be one of those days.
and now i am dealing with lots of folk whinge about varying things.
I'm hungry and i have nothing to eat, might have to nip out and get a roll and something someplace
post away! Pretty sure I've overshared way too much on these boards. I daren't look back.
I had an amazing sleep last night, slept right through to 7:30 with no interruptions. Touch me.
Entertaining the notion that my boss might be about to quit, due to some recent suspicious behaviour, but it's probably just wishful thinking. Fingers crossed though, eh?
Nothing to report.
The doors wouldn't let me out. So embarrassing
Just trying to get out of the college automatic doors and they don't open for me. Am i dead?
Bonfire Last Night - first year that i haven't been properly drunk, was a bit more struck by how dodgy a fair bit of it is - all the zulu and native american stuff, not really on.
was really good tho! always is!
this morning i left my running shoes at home :( - so will try and go in the dark later, but that might not happen
also got a chip in the car windscreen this morning - not happy about that - hasn't happened before - what do i do now?
but eventually it could get bigger and/or shatter.
youre insurance might cover it.. depends if its worth your premium/no claims or if their protected.
you can get autoglass or someone to come out and repair it or replace it. depending on the car either remedy could cost £100+. depending on the pice would depend on if you use insurance or just leave it. (mate left his and was fine for years)
will consult with the other half tonight
it will probs be ok for a day or two yeah - it's not very big
So this is my Monday AND my Thursday essentially. Have emailed temping company to see if they'll cover holiday pay for three days I took off. 62% chance they'll be a dick about it though.
(diary moment: didn't leave the house for five days after my best mate died at the weekend. essentially a lot of me waking up at 5am and just thinking "nah" about work. forced myself to go to rough trade and meet a mate for a pint and felt like i could make it to work today though. basically need a mate who will make me sociable when i don't want to be social because that usually works)
sorry to hear that.
Take your time, do what feels right.
if you ever get accused of murder you can probably quite easily pull together an alibi (cf the Serial thread)
of which i was not aware until last week
I am a member of a few clubs. But the combination of the two sends an involuntary shiver down my spine...
but instead of going to the most convenient pub we go somewhere that has good beer
they all seem to work in IT. feel like IT workers might be less ukippy than your average, baselessly?
woman who sits next to me at work went to Lewes last night for the bonfire. i went last year and had a good time but the travel problems with getting out at the end of the night were too annoying to bother with again.
she stayed at an air bnb and said it was great and cheap. i said "oh cool! i'll book for next year now at an airbnb" and she said she probably would too. so i looked on airbnb and booked a place, and it's now dawned on me that i've rented the same place that she rented, and which she was probably planning on booking again, and that it's only one spare room in the place, so i've usurped her.
should i feel bad? possibly
i blame budgie for not letting me sleep on his kitchen floor last year
you snooze, you Lewes...
( •_• )
i've cancelled that booking and booked another, more expensive, less convenient place in the interests of avoiding having to quit my job due to awkwardness
if you told a colleague how great a thing you did was, and then they *immediately* booked to do that thing so you couldn't?
turns out the place in question isn't even available anyway, so POTENTIALLY the less good place i booked is also denying her the chance to do what she did again, but i've been assured by a friend that i'm in the clear on this
Missed Jeff Tweedy on Tuesday which I'm incredibly gutted about so gonna go to Cafe OTO on my own tonight to make up for it. That's the thought getting me through the day anyway.
I fell asleep with my legs high up on the sofa and my head on the floor. Flatmate tried to move me but she said I was really limp and in a deep sleep. Woke up with one slipper on and I think i must've attempted to take my pjs off as my arm was stuck in the vest part where my head is meant to be.
I am so stiff this morning. And dazed.
I'm going to treat myself to a record at Sister Ray's today. Suggestions welcome.
which is my favourite Elvis Costello song. So maybe buy that.
- got a decent night's kip
- lovely wintery weather, went for a little park walk before getting on the bus this morn
- had another go at our landlord and now they seem to actually be doing something about our problems
- have been getting a ton of shit from people at work for doing what i was hired to do, but feels like now my point of view is actually getting through and people are finally getting it
- making vegan pizza for dinner tonight
didn't crash despite caning it around the tracks and there being an equivalent of a small pond on one of the bends.
Proper cold this morning definitely time to break out the winter coats. For some reason our workplace thought it would be a great idea to have us doing a treasure hunt during the course of working day, if you see anyone around canary wharf looking daft it's probably us.
So I can't move and had to call in sick today - I'll get in trouble for this I'm sure.
I'm a bit bored. Might make a chilli this afternoon as something to do
Is he just completely unrestrained now?
Might not be in the party either idk. Pretty impressive mask slip regardless.
Going to Cardiff tomorrow and staying until Monday though which will be good. Birthday weekend + rugby + seeing old friends + I love Cardiff.
Remains to be seen if I can actually get up in time to catch the coach from Victoria though – I've slept til 1ish most days this week
