Finally sacking off T-Mobile today. Gonna switch to Three at lunch. Problem is, my PAC to transfer my number across is on a text on my phone which is currently in the post to Sony. I *think* I have it in a letter at home but for fucks sake.
But my boss doesn't appear to be in and I've got a pain au raisin, so overall things are pretty alright.
Don't really need to be there for a couple of hours but there's not really long enough to do anything meaningful and I've got my bag to carry about with me. Think I'll go sit in a cafe and read or listen to podcasts.
First time in Paris. I've really loved it.
Should be back in sunny Norwich around 5ish.
How's your day looking?
Really love it as a city
Explored Montmartre and The Marais. Visited the Louvre and the Pompidou. Soaked up the atmosphere, muddled my way through with the language. Shuddered a lot at the price of eating out, seems a fair bit more expensive than London on average.
Generally had a great time.
Feel like all the colour's been drained this morning, I don't know what's up. Just gonna plough into work I think, that can work quite well.
Had an unplanned call with our Dev team in San Fran until 7:30 last night discussing filtering logic which made my blood boil. It's like they're wilfully getting things wrong. I've explained logically, made use cases, and made a working model for them to follow, and they persist in making unfathomable misinterpretations.
Appreciate this is a pretty small complaint in the grand scheme of life, but it's making me livid.
gave some guys in America some requirements for a website, did it wrong. explain how they've done it wrong, they go away, work on it and do it wrong in a different way. explain how they've done it wrong, they go away, work on it and do it right but it's broken so doesn't work. so annoying.
A WORKING MODEL. There were three ways they could do the filtering. I modelled all three and told them which one to use.
They would prefer the app to get our clients really quickly to the wrong answer, obviously
That can fuck off.
I have 'pinged' my quad, which is really annoying. Not painful enough to warrant any sympathy but limiting enough to basically stop me doing any running and stuff. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Finishing an absolute beast of a report today and this week should fly after that. Going to visit my friend in Devon on friday for the weekend. Ales and rugby, yes.
Knew having a gentle kickabout at the park on Saturday was a bad idea
or get a roller on it, or something.,
and found a world of frost, ice, and fog.
Feeling rather poor at the moment, need to win the lottery really.
Just had my first coffee pot and a cup cake left over from my colleague's wedding do at the weekend - pretty decent way to start work I reckon.
I'm off this week. forgot there are builders next door seemingly putting another floor on top of their house, so not really going to get much of a lie in past 9. can deal with that though seeing as it's better than going to work.
yesterday did some shopping, was supposed to get new glasses but couldn't be bothered. today might go see interstellar, not sure yet. want to go somewhere for a day or two but haven't thought of where. might just play mario kart all day instead.
Sweating like a Whatever, shaky and feel like I've been hit by a bus. Going to attempt to fix it with a roll & Sausage and potato scone.
Should not go to the pub quiz without eating dinner in future...
Are Tuesdays actually worse than Mondays?
i'm just being a stupid cunt and putting my ex before myself, i really should know better
hate my job and london. so great thanks
Snoozed for a full hour this morn til my flat was warm enough to brave the shower. First day back after three days off and doesn't feel too bad, only had 3 emails somehow.
Tuesday... not bad.
Labour's latest attack on private schools, or Sainsbury's sacking Jack Monroe for saying mean things about David Cameron and his son. Both have potential...
once to move it off the drive and then again when it was actually time to leave!
Global warming? Don't make me laugh!
Also Frank Turner is playing Night and Day. Isn't he dead popular? Didn't he play wembley?
They say you play here twice - once on the way up, once on the way down...
(prob just a small venue show tbh)
Made puttanesca and garlic focaccia last night and have leftovers for lunch. Can't wait for lunch time!
Tonight - getting my eyebrows done (if i can get there before they close), housemate is cooking for me and we're gonna watch more micky flanagan
wtf meowz? wtf.
Its Micky and his mate cycling round france, stopping off for food and other shit.
that he bases his entire routine on.
it was fucking funny as fuck
haven't slept since Sunday night. Can't sleep cause my gum hurts :(
that was a proper diy job for tea. brilliant.
podcast is out, as per. any takers? http://www.sheeldz.co.uk/radio/blog/2014/11/24/episode-50-24112014
still not got my new bike. the bike i am currently using is seriously on it's way out, and i dont want to invest any more in it... but the back tyre is wonky. :D makes riding slowly a bit of a lottery. almost put me directly into some bushes yesterday.
Means I have to be down near Gatwick till late afternoon on Friday. BS.
although why anybody thinks that Glasgow needs another burger joint is beyond me (I'm just annoyed as I tried to get the building for something else and they trumped my bid.)
I'll go once, once the hysteria dies down and you don't have to queue all the way to George square to get into it.
a Christmas blend espresso, and now Victoria is on the radio.
Do not come at me with The Fall cover.
I need to listen to more Kinks
Not what I was intimating but thanks for the offer
Didn't sleep last night, went to jig jitsu at 7.30 AM, just finished a conference call and have a meeting in 7 minutes that I need to pay attention at. Pray for S_A
Beard looks alright today though
Alternating rounds of grappling and Guinness. Perfect thing to wake you up.
Jamie T is really fit.
had to go through scenarios on the phone with applicants for my old job. Some terrible people about huh
everyone is a cunt except for me
Enjoy your gig!
Burger Meats Bun on West Regent Street?
Although venue is down near Central station.
Fuck it, Sleazys it is!
I've been in my coat all day...and I'm going hot and cold...
Feeling well miserable.
feeling unusally emotional today
What the fuck is going on? "-
*hugs all round*
Sweating buckets one minute and shaking and shivering with the cold the next. What is that? Is it just the cold? Feels weird. I think I need a boiling hot bath and then a 10 hour sleep in an overheated room to sweat out whatever's working on me. BLEURGH.
But my ipad is dead and i don't have the charger. Ughhhhh
Which i can only access online. And i really don't enjoy reading things on the laptop screen. OH WELL I TRIED
What can I buy pplease?
now I can have it I don't want it. Have hardly touched it.
gonna have a really hot bath and an early night tonight. Can't wait. I just hope Molly the dog doesn't try to jump in the bath with me again.
THEN go for a dyed black haircut! You'll end up with a John Jett 80s hairdo!
ED - yes pop and see me any time.
I might get a wig see how things go. i'll keep you posted.
I bet you'd rock the shit out of that look.
aww thanks bbs
either way you're a babe tbh tbf, innit?
i'm kind of bored of myself babes
