Doing work, no.
i do actually have something to do which might take a while, but other than that. No Work.
which is a pisser. been able to get them for ages but they've been blocked again. good ole festive spirit, eh?
Might still just about get in on time.
Hardly anyone here, this is going to really drag.
the train was quiet today though. That was nice.
Got a bit to do this morning but will be here full force thereafter.
Nothing to do.
but there's precious little chance of me motivating myself to do so.
problem is i've got more things ordered now.
but I'm done today. Got a vile 8/9 hour train journey down to Cornwall tomorrow, gf has caught a cold. ALLOW.
Looking forward to Cornwall though, family and visiting Falmouth etc.
The city is so quiet, everyone left already. I'm hoping the biggest challenge I'll face today is where I'll buy lunch from.
Vegetable coconut curry
Salmon bento box
Or going to the supermarket.
All the other places are closed.
In like Flynn.
About to go H.A.M.
Minutes to type up from a meeting last week while they still make a semblance of sense to me.
Might have a coffee and eat my yoghurt covered flapjack (they didn't have a normal cherry one, idiots).
so depressed, I think mainly due to not sleeping last night as my upstairs neighbours were stomping around above our bedroom for three hours packing bags or something, until 2 in the morning.
Might go for a gin and tonic at lunchtime.
I'd have to run the hotel bar though and I'm sure they'd notice me doing that.
In tomorrow as well but off Wednesday.
We have an off-site 'Planning' meeting at 1pm. heh heh
'R&D' all week I think.
and will be up to midday Christmas eve and still have loads to do. Hoping things will begin to quiet down tomorrow afternoon for my team.
feel like it's unreasonable to even expect me to do anything today.
fuck sake, it's going to be well slow on here today isn't it?
we should continue this conversation in a designated break period
we'll come back to this at break.
But having to reply to work emails on my phone.
Fuck off, work.
Have a great day, losers!
thanks for stopping by, Royter!
and he's up and posting on DiS at 10.07 while on leave. WHO'S THE LOSER?
and proper nose to the grindstone stuff. Our christmas meal was cancelled as we had too much work to do its that mental. I was admonished when I got in as I didnt come in on Saturday for free as well. Also, had a pretty great conversation about when I'm working in my Christmas "holiday" . Essentially Im working everyday in my Christmas "holiday". Told we're being paid 1.5x for any overtime but will that bollocks happen.
Just voluntarily take time off in lieu in January to compensate. Fuck 'em.
I'm trying to buy a chunk of a company, it's quite exciting, but my clients are in Houston, so I guess it might be a late night tonight to get everything done. I'm supposed to finish up tomorrow for the 5th, but I guess I'll just work till I get my deal done as I am NOT handing it over to the glory hunting colleague who would happily swoop in, toe it over the line while I'm on holiday and then take full credit for my months and months of hard work and ingenuity.
Market never sleeps.
of being called Rodney :(
people keep asking me stuff, why can't they all just fuck off!
in til tomorrow lunchtime. Not much to do, just some admin. I'm quite cheery about it.
That's my whole career!!!!!!!
so normally I have to do some thinking. Today is not a thinking day!
Don't really know what I'm doing here.
Having chocolate croissant and coffee and about to go catch the train back to the shires. My thoughts are with you poor souls. I'll be checking in on the train. Xmas soon guys, stick it out, do no work.
Arrived to the sad news one of my colleagues died over the weekend after a long battle with cancer. Melancholic office atmosphere contrasts starkly with tinsel-adorned monitors displaying empty words.
Christmas makes sadness more sad as well.
There were 5 girls, two have been sent home already without 1:1 interview after we had to devise and give a presentation. So 1/3 chance now lads. (and the prospective afternoon interviewees) I was nice and let the others go ahead so I'm last.
good luck, candidate
Everyone else is in bar my immediate deskmates so it's not too bad in here.
Finished tomorrow evening and one of my best friends is home from Australia so we're going to drink and drink and drink.
had a lovely sleep, about to go do some christmas shopping.
Someone employ me after new year please.
Had the cat in my bed which meant he got up and started knocking things over and pushing his head into me. My sleep app said my sleep was 85% quality sleep so maybe the cat helped. But I slept way too long cause I didn't even go to bed late. Now I Think I'm stuck at home cause my mums gone for lunch with her friend so I can't borrow her car. Another day pretty much finished already. I'll light the fire and sit down
I took a sleeping pill last night, hence sleeping for hours. It was great! Normally sleep around 4 hours.
It's called 'sleep better' it's supposed to wake you up at the best time within a 45 minute period. So I never use it cause I would end up late for work. But itsssss chrriiiiisssmmaaaasss, so I'm using it
I don't know if it works.
everyone please try and coordinate with thewarn here
Going to be any chocolatey cereal anymore
good luck everyone. x
but just got invited to a second interview for a job I'm going for and it involves a 20 minute presentation so now have work to do. That's pretty much ruined Christmas now, already feel nervous.
but only from 9 to 3
lots of half days are a great use of leftover holiday allowance
Population: you guys.
