Good morning all. How were your weekends? Any other business?
Losing the will to fucking live
won't let me do it over phone
Had no idea.
I havn't had it over the weekend, when I get it it will stop THEM from talking to me.
THEY are talking to me now.
(I can see more things as well) ;D
I was thinking of something else. But hope you get it sorted :)
on the car park this morning. Have literally no cash and a debit card that is now blocked. No forms of ID either.
Happy fucking Monday
hope you get through soon, NV
Might have to borrow a tenner off my colleague.
Teach me to buy DiS T-shirts over the internet
(^This is a joke, Sean)
who would buy DiS T-shirts?
through my work's cycle scheme and the HR gods are smiling - it's already been approved. Brilliant news.
does your work have money to burn?
it's £430 and... I am paying for it (albeit, pretax). it's not that they give me a free bike.
Well, TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE!
(I want to go home. Currently 70% full moker.)
But the I found a bookmark for a BBC news video about that driving school for dogs from a couple of years ago and my day has improved immeasurably.
Have to make 12 cushion covers before 8pm.....oh
Subthread: What's everyone had for breakfast?
I've had a white crusty roll, toasted with butter and jam.
considering how much I enjoy food, my weekday breakfast is depressingly functional.
and a pain au chocolat whilst i made lunch
At work I've just had a cheeky croissant and am drinking a coffee.
I had Honey Cheerios with semi skimmed milk. i'd normally have fruit and fibre, but they didn't have it at the local tesco on my way to work.
Worked sat night and yesterday night (7pm-4am) in a pub. Forgot how fun but intense it can be. Trying to get some thesis stuff done now. Need coffee mainline into a vein asap.
I ache today and I slept terribly.
Other than that, all good I guess. Going to stay in Bolton this week for an event at the Reebok. Should be interesting.
Poor Bolton :(
Friday: Spoon were good. Had a burrito and went to a Spoons.
Saturday: rugby (got tipsy), pizza, earlyish night.
Sunday: watched my boyfriend finish his first half marathon s been? Probs have veggie curry all you can eat beforehand.
They were good but the sound in the Shepherd's Bush Academy is an abomination.
Oh god DiS has just eaten half of my post :(
Basically I have a really busy week and tonight is theatre + obligatory curry buffet beforehand.
in a sportive around the Essex countryside. It was pretty wet and muddy - my legs looked ridiculous when I got home and took my socks off: https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10313282_10154769071985487_8501093754779215497_n.jpg?oh=7601e9d9cf206209e668c862a35c80e5&oe=54DDACF7&__gda__=1424368353_f58d7c1401a811f2090b10d901511fa8
Lovely part of the country though and some of the villages we went through were really, really beautiful. I always think Essex gets a raw deal in terms of its perception/reputation.
Although not the first time i've cycled that distance it was the first time i've ever done it as part of a professionally organised ride. Great fun, and seemingly much easier when there's loads of people involved - would definitely do it again (though I hopefully won't get 3 punctures next time round, as I did yesterday).
I used to play football against a lot of the little towns and villages on the Essex-Suffolk border and many of them still look exactly as they did in his paintings.
there was a kid there called lucien.
been in suffolk at the weekend - was good - very pretty, not much CULTURE tho (as far as I could see)
got very very very wet at a bonfire thing
very much enjoyed the mad thunder and lightning last night
- tonight seeing luke abbott
- tuesday - 13 km run
- weds - NULL
- thursady - 5 km run
- friday- NULL
- saturday - 5km run - friend's birthday drinks in teh evening
- sunday - friend's coming around fro a roast
all through the week - applying for jobs / not drinkinbg as I've gone a bit overboard over the last two weeks or so
Its reeally annoying
(cf Billie Jean)
had Brazilian food and watched Interstellar on Friday
went to BJJ and watched Bohren & der Club of Gore on Saturday and running on Sunday
Bit gutted about the Rockhold/Bisping result and the Rua/St Preux result but I guess it's good to see new UFC fighters coming in and making waves.
and then i went to the mtv awards at the hydro and overdid it slightly. still was a good fun night up even if i hadn't a clue who half the folk playing were.
Today can fuck off.
when Kasabian's Club Foot was used as accompanying music to Battersea fireworks.
Good fun in spite of the rain. Love a good fireworks display, me.
Nice weekend, crammed a load of pizza into my face on Friday night then went to see Interstellar which was grand once you suspend yr disbelief. TBF I fucking love Mr Nolan and the stuff he takes on in his films so I was probably always going to get on with it.
Headed to the Bull and Last on Saturday and had an epic burger which was meant to be in advance of seeing the poppies, but by the time we got back to the tube we were drowned rats so just made our way back to the in-laws, got warmed up and watched a right load of old crap on Sky.
Lazy day yesterday, started to plan a bit of Christmas. Gonna try and keep it a bit low key this year. Think we're hosting.
my mind is just completely blank, I don't even know where to start. My head feels mushy.
Looking for spoilers today. What happens next in my life?
Honestly don't know and am running out of time to make decisions.
Sorry to get all existential.
On the upside, I don't think my relationship with my daughter has ever been better.
Looking forward to some top quality threads today.
None of them mine.
What's the work situation like at the mo? You looking for a bit more purpose there than you currently have?
Thanks for the interest.
Work is ok to be honest. Nothing exciting but it's a nice environment and I think I'd like to keep on working here.
The crossroads I'm at is about something else. Wouldn't be right to be talking about it on here. It's not difficult to work out who I am if you know me in real life.
I don't know anyone here IRL so I wouldn't be sure but appreciate that a publicly viewable forum isn't necessarily the best way to disclose sensitive personal stuff you want to talk about :)
Hope you get to the bottom of it soon, but in the mean time I guess make sure that you don't let looming worry filter out the enjoyment that fatherhood is giving you - it sounds amazing fwiw, I hope I get to join that club at some point. Sure you'll get yr spoilers in time, sometimes it just takes our brains little bit longer than we'd want to come to terms with which way to go.
You seem like a cool guy.
I've got my therapy session tomorrow night so will be offloading there. And maybe with friends. I don't feel on my own with, although ultimately there's only one person who can make the big decisions. Just wish it wasn't me in charge of my brain sometimes.
Thanks for the kind words and gooood luck.
Today is the last Monday I'll work until Jan 5th.
But with Fridays.
Was going to do it this year but am going to carry over my annual leave to next year instead because I've got a honeymoon to squeeze in and every single day is needed.
I would've done Fridays, but they're really busy for me. Which is annoying.
I'm not going to drink/move until Thursday.
I'm going to go and make tea in a minute, though.
I'll let you know when I'm back.
just seen my work's been featured on buzzfeed http://www.buzzfeed.com/jobarrow/greater-manchester-police-have-not-created-a-victim-blaming
except they've made it out like this is some sort of initiative by the cops and not something i spent months trying to push for :(
today is my wednesday night.
woooooooh it was good
I wish I could be arsed to use my slow cooker more.
this looks good. So glad I've got my lunch in front of me right now.
Best thing was it felt like a really healthy meat and two veg kind of wholesome stew type affair, then when it had cooled down there was half an inch of grease in the bottom of the dish. Yum.
Made the Indian ratatouille on sat. Orzo and mozzarella pasta bake for sunday
Soft play party hell that left us smelling of chips and sweat for the rest of the day too.
Moving a load of stuff for plumber to cone and redo heating next few weeks. Oh yes! No heating or hot water for next two weeks!
really dont know what to do. meant to be working nightshift tonight and tomorrow. there's a big chunk of crisp stuck in it just now and im too scared to excavate. gonna just have to :(
just bit down on something and thought i could feel my tooth collapsing. my teeth are fucked anyway.
actually no there's a wee hole that wasn't there before. gonna have to chew on one side for a few days till i can get to a dentist. greattttt..
so I can see these thing for myself
gonna have to find an emergency dentist and get my tooth fixed before i start work at 10. there's a massive crack on my molar. also means i dont have time to do finish a really important job application. my denist doesnt have anything left today ahhhh.
got dental receptionist to put my on standby and my dentist will stay late. what a fucking saint. really annoyng cause i dont know if i can take anything for my nerves right now.
what do they do? :( i'm so scared
I suspect in your case it will be either bonding where they inject some resin into the crack or veneers which fit over the top of the tooth.
but that could jsut be me catastrophising it with my tongue.
(it finally let me log out as alan)
He has no right at all to be disappointed by that.
