I've done some haiku
In stealthys bad haiku thread
will mods wipe them off?
the girlfriend and I are having a nice day together in lieu of me being away this weekend
we're going to this http://www.nms.ac.uk/national-museum-of-scotland/whats-on/game-masters/
and then to the new cat cafe, and then to the cinema, and then getting a pizza and some drinks. best day.
you got to be kidding me
just rolls off the tongue
spent last night lying awake thinking about a firefighting project i am working on. not done that in ages. been on for an hour and already worked up the changes, so feeling pretty boss about it.
also i got the formal certificate of chartership in a few days ago. so so so tempted to get it framed.
The place has probably burned down by now!
cannot be arsed
apparently this Friday we're getting some drugs and going to an S&M club to get whipped and kicked in the bollocks
waiting for confirmation of where i'm going to be working next week. it might be in Rugby in a building that has one window, and that's in the stairwell, so it sounds great. have never been there though so I don't know if I'm missing out by not having a view.
Probably because I've got four tasks to do and then my desk is clear for fucking off on study leave/exam taking for a fortnight.
Made some tomato sauce recipe that fidel posted. It was decent.
might have to make a trip to the docs before i go on holiday. Can only imagine it getting worse before sunday.
go to the chemist and get some medicine
Or is there a specific difference that makes tickly coughs more easily treatable than the chesty kind?
unless it's chronic. If you've only had it for a short while, the doctor won't prescribe you anything special so it's a waste of resources.
tbf i was only going by the last time i had a cough and that never went away for ages so i went to the doctor. I guess this one might go away quicker.
do go if it sticks around though, I don't want you to die :(
going to a homebrewers meet up thing tonight, I will not feel alright tomorrow.
Plan to go to all my classes and maybe the gym and eat actual meals. Probably only the first one will happen, but yeah, baby steps.
U can do it pm
don't know why I'm feeling so positive today. waking up to bunny licking my nose might have helped >.<;
working late then off to see The Twilight Sad and then possibly a curry after.
can any self-employed LME types recommend one?
people get upset
or one that will ensure you only pay the minimum amount of tax you are legally obliged to?
I can recommend someone good for the latter but not so much the former.
i just need to pay someone a large fee so that they can 'certify' my last tax return
Hardly slept last night as a result. Just called dentist and they can see me in an hour thank god. Hurts so much. Feel like I'm going to vomit.
They've given me some antibiotics and said I can either have it taken out or get a root canal. Bacteria got in :(
What do you think you'll do? Which tooth is it?
Think I'll get it taken out.
By burial. Its a really soothing song when walking to work with a gloom cloud.
Off to Holland tomorrow to catch up with my Best Man! Start off in Rotterdam before heading up to Amsterdam. Travel advice would be welcome here (I'm looking at you pn). Looking forward to lots of nice strong beers.
Also, gonna have to smoke some blunts in the 'Dam right? It'd be like going to Rome and not having a pizza and some Chianti right outside the Colosseum.
I feel a bit nervous but relieved as my boss was quite a bit mean to me yesterday which lead to an hour and a half argument then I had to work til 9pm cause of it. Then went home and cried most of the night and was awake all night cause I was so upset.
and then can help you let go of the stress and upset the job is giving you! x
And only 2 weeks til I leave - BONUS.
(actually, not so much as I will miss a lot of people I work with here)
and although you'll see them a bit less, you'll make new work friends, in a happy environment, and when you see the old work friends the time spent together will be of a higher quality :)
Feelin' alright. Totally chill drive in with some early D'Angelo this morning; Cruisin' plus sausage and egg mcmuffin for the win, eh?
Gonna buy White Noise at lunch, it's the first read in my oz buddy and I's new book club. Been meaning to read it for ages so looking forward to getting stuck into it. Might book some flights to Ireland tonight.
Have a good day DiS.
The landlord informed us he's upping our rent soon, I've lost my provisional driving license just as I was about to start lessons, I've just remembered a crapload of work that needs doing that I'd somehow completely forgotten about and my GP seems to have given up giving out appointments so I won't be able to pop along and ask why the brain pills weren't working anymore unless I ring at exactly 8am and manage to get an emergency appointment with whichever doctor happens to be available.
On the plus side I've got leftover curry for lunch and I'm giving blood this afternoon so I can feel all smug for a bit.
I'll feel even more smug if I don't pass out this time. Forgot to eat before my last bloodletting. Rookie mistake.
Did you get the work cleared in the end?
I also have no idea how the appointment service works at my GP, despite continually trying. Seems to change every day...
My to do list is ridiculous. And I still spent half the morning on here..
Apparently my GP only books appointments up to 3 weeks in advance and is entirely booked up for the next 3 weeks. Baffling.
8am or bust I s'pose. Good luck with the blood doning!
Work is being a pain this week. Today the regional manager used the word spastic in our meeting. Was through ignorance rather than calling someone a name, but still floored me.
and means I have to see my mother for the first time in 15 years. Might end up killing her so see ya later if I end up in clinky town.
Hope he's ok, hope you're ok x
In better news one of my mates is moving to Cork and I'm helping him find a job. Woop!
and lots of people are asking me stupid questions.
and already I've managed to totally SMASH a few pieces of work that have been causing me problems this week.
there must be something really productive in the air- everybody seems pretty hyped for achieving stuff today!
Going to tackle the big thing I've been procrastinating from and then open up my laser light show thing that has just been delivered, and have a good play with it.
care to explain further?
(presumably the lights?) It's just a wee thing I bought cos I asked my boyfriend what he wanted for his birthday and he said 'nothing unless I can have a laser disco party in the sitting room' so that's what I've tried to enable with this purchase. No idea how it's going to work, I'm baffled by it.
I said: re actually fulfilling this.
I love that you're actually fulfilling this.
< / 3
taking love and making it a short form of reference
Probably proof read my friend's new zine before that
Meetings all day
Taking the fiancée to Budapest for the weekend
a quick sit down and tuck into my brunch sausages, 3 dogs (aka wolves) decided to ambush me and whilst one of them (no word of a lie) boxed my ears in, the other two evil mongrels stole all my sausages. Managed to break free because a nice man (potentially Jesus) swooped down and grabbed me in his masculine arms and took me home (2 kilometres) . He is running me a bath now and says he should take some pictures of me so he can show the police the pain the 'mutts' have caused unto me.
wasn't bad but at some point it kind of felt like the actual plot had sort disappeared into the background and we were just watching people wandering around in a drug induced haze.
....there is no plot
Went to a gig last night and cried through most of the set like a big baby. I think a tap has just been opened and any emotion I've bottled up for however long is now making an appearance. Not fun.
The gig was beautiful though. And then I drank wine and had a bit of a headache this morning.
Turns out the irritating girl who helped me for the last hour of work yesterday managed to fuck up the simplest task ever (staple one thing to one booklet and another thing to another booklet). For some reason this absolute cretin (who kept shouting over to her mates and being like "hahahah THIS is what I'm doing!!!", fuck off mate you're only doing it for an hour when I've been doing it for three weeks so just get on with it and grow up) didn't bother checking which booklet went with which letter so fucked a load of them up AND in new levels of incompetence, she actually PUT A STAPLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE A4 PAPER AS WELL AS IN THE TOP LEFT CORNER WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU ACTUALLY EVEN DO THAT ESPECIALLY WHEN I SPECIFICALLY SAID AND DEMOJSTRAFED ONE STAPLE IN THE CORNER
she's had to use my log on today because hers is broken and her fucking knobhead mate came over to gossip with her and waited til she wasn't looking to send stupid messages to other members of staff who I don't even know on my account so it makes me look well unprofessional
Arghhh so much rage for these fuckwits
Using it as an excuse to have a spoons curry on curry club day. Spinach and sweet potato mmmm
I think I'm getting ill AGAIN. So I'm eating every single vegetable.
Been to the gym. Feeling alright. Tired.
I finally got a laptop from PC World and managed to haggle a £150 off the original price.
In other news, I went to Body Pump earlier and now I'm walking like John Wayne.
Been really down the past couple of days as recruitment agencies have basically wasted my time, and I went for a really really really good dream job that I want and had an interview and they haven't got back to me since the 5th Feb and I think if they really wanted me I would've known by now.
Note to anyone thinking of quitting their job without anything to go to: don't do it unles you have lots of money saved.
In better news my friends who live on a boat on the Thames are cooking for me tonight, and I've also written two new songs.
Fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you.
There's no office. Looks like it'd be full time wfh. I'd barely have to speak to anyone ever again. That's the dream!
I'm having beers tonight and then a celebratory Education Scotland breakfast at work tomorrow! Might watch LEGO too!
