Morning Ladies and Gents of DiS
Been a long week.
Going to the pub for lunch.
Earworm: Shorley Wall by Ooberman
shorley wall is in my top 5 tunes of all time
I managed to get on Lamacq's Good Day/Bad Day a couple of years ago and he played it as my Good Day tune.
still think they're a pretty underrated band, tunes like "roll me in cotton", "you're amazing in bed" and even some of the stuff off the last two albums were great
is there best.
Dan and Sophia do stuff as Magic Theatre now done a couple of good albums.
Got really bad period pains though :(
Don't have an earworm at the moment.
Was at an awards do in in edinburgh last night that chris packham was hosting, he was very good.
I'm getting my festive haircut in a couple of hours.
Fuck all planned as yet for this weekend that makes me happy.
I've been listening to Jamie T almost exclusively for about 3 weeks! :)
Got today off and spent all night sorting out my computer which had been moving at the pace of an arthritic snail. I'm not very computer literate and I ended up just restoring it to its factory settings (which worked thankfully). Going to the dolphin for some food at dinner to meet a mate, if they turn up. Notoriously unreliable.
Also song that's going round my head is 'Where will the children play' by cat stevens. Good album.
Shit house. At least it's Friday. I think some shit is going to go down today RE: Getting rid of a staff member, but I'm not sure.
getting a nice big delivery from my friend over the weekend right enough.
I think I have more at home so that's ok, and at least it's Friday.
Person was just suspended and it was very awkward.
i won't make that mistake again.
just so I can pick up some coffee from there.
I think it's relating to that. I did complain at the time, but it was quite a while ago so I don't know if it is actually that or there are more things involved.
today is my last day of work until December, cannot emphasis how ridiculously happy i am about that. not quite last day of school before summer holidays levels of excitement, but not far off. i don't even have any plans really (i wrote a list of vague ideas for things i'd like to do but my wife has laughed at it, apparently "go out for a nice pizza" is not a real plan), just the idea of not being here for 11 consecutive days is awesome.
in good timing news, i now have a cold. keep sneezing and getting through my box of tissues at a ridiculous rate. thanks cold.
is always a good plan!
unfortunately half the time it's not intentional :(
Dont even know how that happened.
Tonight - going for tapas and drinks with golf babe
Tomorrow - craft fair and major levels of chilling out
Sunday - parents coming to see my new place - yays!
been feeling a bit more stressed than normal because I found we had a rat in our kitchen last week. it's gone now (:( and there's been no evidence of it having friends, but even though i went round and did a basic sweep and mop, the kitchen still smells a bit and I'm going to have to spend a bad amount of time this weekend on hands and knees, wearing rubber gloves scrubbing things. The worst thing is every little noise i hear gets me on edge and i keep dreaming about rat after rat after rat. so I'm just all short and edgy. which has been worse, because my girlfriend has been really ill since Tuesday evening and because I'm all stressed I'm not being as calm and caring as i should be for her.
not got any social plans. I'll clearly drink too much. perhaps I'd like to make a massive roast on Sunday to remind our kitchen we're still friends. oooh, and because i got some Mayan Gold potatoes the other day and they fluff up a treat. mad some roasties with them on Tuesday. Only parboiled them for about 7 minutes and they were falling apart. Joy. Awwww! totally jut stared out of the window for a good number of minutes considering roast meats. yeah, I think i want a big roast.
I'm pretty tired today but I'm off to Paris tomorrow for three whole days so that's enough to invigorate me.
Two days with the gf and then I'm roaming the streets of Paris on my tod on Monday while she attends a fashion expo (which is the reason for the trip and explains how I can afford it ie free accommodation).
Never been to Paris before so I'm excited. Also I don't think I've ever been at large on my own in a foreign city either, only ever travelled with others before. I've going to feel like Bourne and Bond rolled into one.
Fancy a Parisian rendezvous?
No, me neither.
I could've been the Felix Leiter to your Bond.
For one moment I thought you might actually be in Paris and I pictured us strolling hand in hand along the banks of the Seine.
Then you snatch it away.
nastypunk more like.
Sometimes I forget how much I mean to people. I am off work, but I'm not going to be anywhere near Paris.
sap by name
brutal sex droid by nature
no radical changes in syle
well tired - need some sleep - DATE NIGHT with eh lady tonight and then massive sleep in tomorrow
amounts of confidence!
and we've been together for about 10 years and live in the same house
Probably hit up the Christmas market at some point too.
Is it baltic there yet? Because I haven't packed my gloves.
feel so ill but i have a job interview then working 5 consecutive night shifts. this is basically my sunday night except i have to stay up all night then go into work. hate my life.. also about to get my period.
Used to love that song/band.
I had a haircut last night, got it really short at the back and now my neck is cold.
Got an Ikea delivery today so DIYing this evening. Parents are round as well so I'll do something with them round that London tomorrow.
Last day of work until December, really looking forward to it as I'm pretty knackered. Really want to go to this
But I'll probably be at the gym until quite late.
Current ear worm: Leatherhead by Open Mouth (aka yer man from Miss Black America http://openmouthmusic.bandcamp.com/track/leatherhead)
this is great, cheers for posting!
I think he's mostly involved with Horse Party these days.
only heard a couple of tracks but they sound decent
the most long winded process in the world. ended up ringing her home number by mistake and her husband said she'll ring me back this afternoon
*Sits back, opens notebook*
Still pissed from my leaving do. Not doing any work. LAST DAY!
Deffo gonna have one later. They've made me two carrot cakes as well.
Have a blast Meths, You'll be just up the road from me soon, we should meet for a boost.
this is not good.
he doesn't know it yet but he's going to love it cause he loves going to the country
need a wee but my boyfriends in the bathroom
rang my mam up and asked if i can get wellies out of the back of her car but she's at physio argh man i need some wellies
I've got a pair but they're really cheap and uncomfortable. They're in my car boot as an emergency item. Hate wearing them.
It's -14 out at the moment. The heater in my room sounds like a plan taking off so I turned it off for the night. Cold air from here heating up on the other side of the great lakes caused 6 feet of snow in a day in parts of New York on Wednesday. Mental.
4 hour workshop then 9 hour flight back to Blighty. Bit of a crap Friday.
In other news I've brought a dog in to work today who i look after several times a week.
Tonight: That James Brown biopic, some beers
Tomorrow: Going to see Wales v the All Blacks
Sunday: Recovering from the above
