For those of us at work: we can do this.
For those of us at work (FIRE!) etc.
I'm not entirely sure what the point is when no-one else is in so there's no-one to call me, and my out of office says I'm not back til January so even if you did need to call someone, you wouldn't call me cos I'm off. so I'm just going to play Mario Kart.
in other news, I got a new battery for my scales and I weigh exactly 12kg more than I did at this time last year :( I know I've put some weight on but fuck.
I found out the terrifying number on the old ones was actually half a stone off. In the bad way.
H8 work 2K14
Nothing to do.
PS4 is staring seductively at me. Fortunately (?) I have a very clearly defined task that needs doing today which should keep me on track. On the plus side, board games night with the thinly veiled, the thinly veiled's sister, and the thinly veiled's sister's thinly veiled.
going to play some board games tonight post.
but this is our busiest time of the year so just finishing off some stuff from December so I've got a clean run at the January madness. I really don't like working from home I've found out. I'd genuinely prefer to go in for 3/4 hours but the place is shut down ffs
lots to do. me and one other person in. i intend to do diddly squat
Yesterday my granddad passed away after various illnesses. It was peaceful. He was 87 so had a good long life.
And I got dumped...over the phone. The person knew the above was likely to happen in the next few days as well. I sure do pick 'em.
Please give me suggestions on how to keep very busy for the next week on limited funds (why the fuck did i book all this time off)
Doing some volunteering (is there a city mission or a project that you can go and cook food for homeless people or something like that?)
You love running iirc, what about trying out some new routes (no idea if people even run at this time of year, I can't even jog)?
All the nice craft things you're into
Get in touch with a friend you've not spoken to
Join your local library or a book group or something like that
Admire your taxidermy
hahah "a friend you've not spoken to". Yeah just go out and talk to strangers.
also make a lovely casserole, or another meal that takes a long time to prepare. I made a really good sweet potato one yesterday.
then for an evening run. I haven't really ran around my new area that much so will be nice.
And yeah, jordon. Gonna cook a big dinner tonight for my housemates. A nice chorizo and butterbean stew with sweet pot mash :) mmmmm
I got a massive chorizo for Christmas so gonna use half of it for NYE tapas (having people over before going out) and then the other half for a stew which i'll probably eat on my own.
How is the new house?
New house is just wonderful. My housemates are amazing! Really good company which is exactly what I need (at any time, not just now!)
Have a shitload of top importance stuff to get done or else nobody gets their payrise/bonus, Christmas gets cancelled, Tiny Tim gets his other kneecap done in etc.
feeling quite focussed. Should have plenty of time to get everything done, might even do some of the crap jobs I've been putting off for months. Might even do that online diversity training they've been trying to force me to do forever
(fast forward 3 days, ol douchie frantically trying to cook the books on NYE with a steaming hangover)
i am zen
Where's my whisky and fags
Calm, in the zone. Still def going for a pint + fag as soon as that clock hits 4.30
Just did it again with the same milk.
plus I'm tired.
was planning to look at my dissertation today, got a whole bunch of days totally free before i go back to Edinburgh, and there are very few distractions here. but I went to an ice hockey game in London last night and had a few drinks and dinner consisted of a stale croissant on the train back so I'm a bit hungover and lethargic now.
Had a fantastic time with my family over the past few days though so I'm feeling ok about being at work. Dunno what to get for lunch though as everywhere seems closed.
Might as well just write today off.
I have decided to pop into the orifice for a couple of hours later to do my weekly figures and send a few emails. I could wait until next Monday but it's not worth the hassle/shit that I'll get next week.
tbh I'm actually quite looking forward to it: be nice to see my colleagues for a chat and then leave when I want to
someone's getting a christmas treat, eh eh eh
New Year's Resolution: find a good woman
I think I have some kind of Christmas jet lag, I left my soul in Windsor.
I think when it kicks in over the next couple of days that this is what I have to do EVERYDAY for 5 out of ever 7 days FOREVER is when it's really going to hurt. Maybe that'll happen on Tuesday.
Fuck all to do. Wish I was back at home playing Wolfenstein.
There's crazy mist outside today.
the only thing I wanted to do today was buy a hat yet I have failed
going to the gym soon
then going to a dinner party that I need to cook something for but don't know what
went out for a meal last night and I don't think I've ever scoffed so much food so quickly
I love my boyfriend
got there ten minutes late cos of shitey buses and it turns out the boss had texted me two days ago (she hadn't actually she forgets a lot of things) and I didn't even need to go in. Doyeee
need to get back over to my house (north west from south east) with my sister cause we're meeting our mum but everyone's still over the limit. I'm probably our best bet but don't have insurance so. gonna have to get public transport.
a new low
Absolutely pig sick of her using mine every morning. Its gross, right?
So obviously I'm still in bed.
Or some very specific words in a certain order?
If the first option then I'm willing to help - for a small fee of course
I had the melancholy pang of knowing that I've only got a constantly dying week left of holidays. The Christmas tree there, now nought but a thoughtlessly blinking grave marker for another season come and gone, succumbing to the forces of capitalism -- that privately-operated system seizing what it can of the assets of Nature.
But yeah, being at work *today* must totes whomp
Spent the morning in bed with my laptop doing some final wee bits of work. Everything else I can do requires other folks' input - so I'm absolved of responsibility until next year. Though I'd rather be doing it now, all told.
Office is empty, so quiet the sound of my laptop fan is driving me crazy
"Jesus, keep it down - there's people here
"BUT, BUT... OMG!!! LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THE SPACE BAR!!!"
Made me chuckle
Still have Sharpie all over my hands from the fake tattoos I drew on there. I utterly stink of drink. I can't wait for this festive season bollocks to be over.
I can't face it out there any more.
If anyone asks, the off milk has given me a dodgy stomach.
Only just got out of bed. I'm going to lie on the sofa all afternoon and play pokemon.
