(Did you all have a nice Christmas and New Year, for starters?)
Its just too much
spent almost the entire Xmas period asleep on the sofa, and every waking moment eating. By the end I felt rested for once, almost healthy
i then spent the next 3 days drinking and not sleeping, and now I feel absolutely fucked again
sterling work douchie, you tit
I'm STARVING. I want pizza. I'm defo getting pizza for lunch.
Told me at the xmas party that he's going to do a WFH audit today in people's diaries.
Most other unis are still shut today so not sure why we're open
Forgot to bring any Christmas treats in too :(
Gonna make coffee.
think one of them was bad :(
So much shit to sort out, I'm not even thinking about work. Posting notice for marriage at lunch, need to renew my driving license as well. And got a text from EE this morning telling me I'd used 80% of my data, but that it was due to refresh on 2/2. HUH?
Could get out early again. I fucking hope so. I just want to sleep for the rest of the day and then all weekend.
I've a meeting at 11:30. Going to find out whether I've been laid off or not. SUSPENSE.
Just got given my week's notice. Time to start looking for work so.
so getting bus to work. they're on saturday service. first bus didn't turn up, so was stood in the freezing cold for the best part of 45 mins. pretty fucked off now tbh.
despair I felt this morning when I woke up.
I want to go home, watch Stargate and play football manager.
Smoothie at the ready.
Several excellent games of Quizup with japesy boy have kept me festive over the break.
I'm totally focussed on the continued struggle against the music board. Let's destroy those fuckers this year.
Coffee and eggs first though
how many more replies I should give it before announcing that I'm not back in work until next Friday morning.
Monday for me
Going to be a pointless today as I have about 15 mins more work to do and then I will be twiddling my thumbs until 5:30pm. It's going to be a long day!
but I was working Tuesday and Wednesday this week so I guess I'm a bit further along the misery curve than most of you.
In work, getting fuck all done.
Happy new year!!
Get any new games?
Nothing new in a while actually (by my profligate standards, anyway). Eyeing up a few dungeon crawler-type things for my next purchase.
I still haven't got my hands on various games that I left with my ex (inc Diplomacy and Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective *sob*) but for Christmas I got Catan, which I've played a few times but didn't own, Ticket to Ride Europe and *whisper* Monopoly Deal (which I love).
I bought Romans Go Home for my housemate but we haven't played that yet.
It was my and my ex's train gaming of choice. Shits on Top Trumps.
I spent Boxing Day playing back to back games of Pandemic and Last Night on Earth. It was dead good.
I got Machi Koro for Christmas. It is very very good.
and dice rolls) game. Cute graphics, well easy to understand after the first game but takes a bit longer to work out the best strategies. It's about 30-60 minutes for one game depending on how many players (between 2 and 4).
It's a clever little game.
Looking forward to a year of gaming.
I locked my partner in our flat this morning. She called me as my train pulled into the station after my home one. Rather than wait for train, I took a circuitous route by running and travelling by bus.
My stomach is bloated. I am wearing jeans today but am already dreading fastening my trousers on Monday.
There's four people in the office – three from my team. We were told no holiday is allowed on 2 January. That's what you get for working in finance. The two people above me in the hierarchy are both on holiday today. Stuff like this makes me inordinately mad.
Engineer came to fix our vacuum cleaner this morning. There was no suction from either the base or wand. He turns up, and, of course, it works perfectly. It'll not work tomorrow.
I need something to go right for me today. SOMETHING
will have to remember not to include verbal :(
with mysterious aches and pains and persistent hangover guilt. Plus ate some dodgy chicken last night so haven't slept a bit. Definitely uninterested in today.
Going to be arranging and rearranging until half 5.
I need to get my sleeping pattern back to normal.
just sending my solidarity from my bed. I've got a really sore throat and need to go out in the rain to meet my friend to bring her to my house. (She's been here before and knows where it is but wants me to walk most of the way to her house so that she has someone to walk with... I agree to do it because she's my pal and we all have different needs and things that make us more comfortable...)
rain, sleet now it's a crisp blue sky. Still huffy about having to walk to meet my friend. I suggested she takes public transport bit she wants an adventure. So I'm walking half an hour to meet her. wtf.
wouldn't really mind if I didn't already walk to her house/neighbourhood twice a week for the past year and a half. She lives closer to town uni so it always just goes without saying that I'm going towards her area. don't like how people act like visiting a friend who lives slightly outside the centre is like a massive deal.
and probably my best friend an I love her so I'm gonna draw a line under this and accept this one tiny flaw.
On the plus point, once its done I can go home! Might go even idf it isn't done tbf
but I'm never going to get rock hard abs with the amount of sandwiches i eat.
But I want a sandwich. And I've already had eggs on toast this morning so my bread quota for the day is done. :(((
I have today off, so I'm just going to sit here and laugh in my dressing gown.
Sunny outside though.
i will buy you a danish and we can laugh together please
I'm too far away.
it is really good tbf. Thai corn flavour from Pret. 8/10
What time will you leave?
