i.e. definately not a thread of warmth OR COLDTH
let's have a strong day.
I'm gonna concentrate on the 'power of will' bit.
Smash down all obstacles, smash down those back doors etc (that is a rap saying isnt it?)
now going to grab a roll and sausage and a coffee. my game is strong.
I'm going to work.
Second day of training course.
Five-a-side tonight. We've currently got four and a maybe.
I am All Powerful.
Today I plan to do as close to fuck all as possible.
Went to bed obscenely early last night. Can't really do it again today.
But instead of pizza I got this thing from Ocado that's got a naan bread base with tomato sauce, mozzarella, spinach and sweet potato.
Could be horrendous. Could be a game-changer. I'll let you know.
except I seem to forget this as the day wears on, when instead I get fooled into thinking I like being out of bed more than being in it. I have no idea how I managed to get out of bed this morning.
Erm, how the HELL does google know it's my birthday. this has creeped me out, the google doodle is all birthday cake anmd stuff. Aw man, is it cos i'm signed into my gmail?
Happy Birthday PO :)
All of the happy returns
think the operations manager has a bit of a crush on me - they bought me an extra pain au chocolat for the meeting. Ooh.
Now going to kill a couple hours before the day job starts by trying to do my budget for the next few months. Sometimes I wonder how one man could be this exciting
Anyone know set times?
Got in a pre-work climbing session - proper carpe diem day today
8 PM - Support act: everyone stays in the bar
8:30 PM Support finishes: everyone still in the bar
9 PM Elbow start: big rush from the bar
9:30 PM They play that one where everyone waves their arms in the air
10:00 PM They play a new song: everyone back to the bar
10:30 PM They play another one where everyone waves their arms in the air
10:45 PM Guy Harvey declares it their best show ever
10:50 PM Encore: everyone waves their arms in the air
11:00 PM Finish: everyone is sweaty and stinks of lager
my legs hurt.
Saw Inherent Vice last night, it was enjoyable without being spectacular.
Finished ready my book this morning - The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair. I did not really enjoy it.
I wore shorts. I can't feel my legs now. They went purple :(
So good that I couldn't get up to run this morning.
Might go and see a film tonight. That Wachowski brothers (can I still call them that now that one of them is a lady?) film looks terribly awful and therefore brilliant. Otherwise Frank finally made it out over here, recommended?
Still in training for my new job. Fairly boring.
I'm going to ask a lady out later on that I accidentally turned down in the most indie way possible on Saturday. Fingers crossed.
This lady was there with some of her friends. She had worked with one of my friends and knew who I was so we started talking and hit it off.
Chatted away for an hour and then her friends wanted to leave. She said she had to go and I went "Aw shit, are you sure?" She then asked if I wanted to come with her and me, being completely freaked out by this (haven't had any attention from the ladies since last June) said "Nah, I'm grand here." My other excuse was that I was changing a record and was distracted but that's a load of guff.
Anyway, she leaves, sheepishly enough while I make a big fuss of changing the LPs out. The front door closes and I look up, in horror, to see that all my mates were watching me do this and were expecting me to score her at any moment. They all collapse in fits of laughter, I put my head in my hands because I've just copped what I've done.
I leg it into the kitchen to ask the person that knew her from work would she have her number. No number. I then run upstairs, find her on Facebook and message her apologising for being an idiot and saying I had a great time hanging out with her. She got back to me saying that she had found it a bit odd but that she'd like to hang out again.
So, I think I've rescued the situation but that was a disaster of an incident.
and you took your record changing responsibilities seriously. Fine work. I hope for your sake it was a good record though - if the moment she left you were all jamming to Phish I think any kind of relationship with this girl is doomed from the start.
I'm fairly sure I was putting on 'The Golden Age Of Apocalypse' by Thundercat then. Trying to impress by putting on all my cool records nearly shafted me.
"geesy taught me"
last night. We were SO close and he just completely stopped speaking to me when we were planning a holiday, after a month of silence he told me he had binged on me and was sick of me and I was suffocating him. It's been 7 months since we spoke (I completely cut him out of my life) and my life is a lot better now than it was (I was completely obsessed with him and it was stopping me living my life), but his apology and explanation have obviously brought up a lot of feelings. He's been in a bad place for a long time, and losing me as a friend has clearly really messed him up - we can't be friends again but I am really concerned now and wish he'd opened up about his issues before so I could've helped him :( #feelings #ssp
and a bit complicated :(
are you sure it's completely over/ you can't ever be friends again?
He messed me around a lot both when we were dating and when we were best friends - he was often a bit detached when I was there for him and needy when I wasn't - and it really fucked with my head (I was seriously depressed as a result and have been in counselling for a year) - it just wasn't healthy even though sometimes we had a great time. He knows we can't be friends too tbh, that too much damage was done. I'm going to send a nice but honest response later that urges him to speak to someone about his depression and isolation. Having a shit day at work too on 4 hours' sleep too ugh, woe is me.
I was in a similar situation and had to decide in the end just to sever all contact. Didn't talk to my ex for months on end. Then she was moving away so I met her one last time and it brought up everything all over again. I wished her well but that's it, I can't continue dealing with it.
Obviously I still care about him but if I get involved it just opens a whole can of worms and it was hard enough dealing with everything the first time round. I really do hope he will be OK though.
Thinking how stupid it was drinking on a Monday but then I remembered I hadn't had a drink? Maybe the elbow I got last night is going to kill me urgh. Can't move my right arm either cos I got my ribs/elbow stamped on. Just gonna lie down all day and listen to radio 4 extra.
This was a 5-a-side game, not some scrapping with teenagers outside a chip shop
i've not got ready yet cause i'm the only one in and waiting for the postie. i'll wait another twenty minutes then shower. have got to leave in two hours so they better hurry up.
as bf has gone to portugal :( I have demanded presents so its ok.
Got a puncture on my bike and don't *really* know how to fix it. I've seen people fix mine a bunch of times so we'll see if I'll sort that out later.
PUB QUIZ TONIGHT !!!
If you've got a puncture repair kit then fixing the former is easy, if it's the latter then just buy a new inner tube.
Don't think I've ever had a fixable puncture, it's always the fucking valve :(
My bike is also at home so I can't flutter my eyelashes at the guys in the work bike garage and ask someone to help me.
It was fine on Friday, then went to it today and it was flat. I've never just fixed the puncture, always had to have the inner tube changed.
dunno what after that though
can we just have a normal thread tomorrow? cheers
as I took pains to specify
You've become THE MAN.
bye nice talking to you all this morning
I thought this was the football thread so didn't click on it
it's going to be a horrific zero reply car crash and i'm bummed out
partly I suspect because I ate ridiculously late in the evening. One of the new chaps at my gym asked me how he could get an amateur MMA fight, he's had precisely one MMA class and trains once a week :-S.
Team dinner tonight, gonna get my lebanese on.
So I guess I'm probably dying. Bye everyone.
