Morning all. Good weekends?
working from home today
flurry of emails last-thing
Not working form work today.
so it's two days of indoor play areas, Lego and sibling arguments.
Tried to go to a really quiet acoustic gig after that. Kept almost falling off my chair as I was so drunk. Really annoyed with myself. Couldn't afford the Joan Shelley LP as I'd spent all my cash on me on drink.
In work now. Not well.
So that's at least one good thing that's happened this morning.
Waiting on an e-mail from a venue that'll hopefully reveal the location of my Cloud Nothings t-shirt. Removed it at an Aaliyah tribute night on Friday and couldn't find it when I was leaving.
"Removed it at an Aaliyah tribute night on Friday and couldn't find it when I was leaving."
Did you think you were D'Angelo or something?
Just changed into a clean t-shirt, that's all.
My aunt's third crack at marriage. Was great fun - saw lots of cousins I haven't seen since her second.
Nice day in Edinburgh with the gf on Friday - walked up to Arthur's Seat which made me realise how lacking my cardio fitness is.
Not feeling too bad about being in work today - we'll see how long that lasts...
He just found the idea of relations with them 'hot'.
Went out 'clubbing' Friday. Rest of weekend was a pleasant enough write off. I am getting too old for this shit.
that is all
Actually who am I kidding you'll have played like 15 other shows by then anyway.
we do have other shows booked, but this is our HEADLINER
Mate we're gonna be SE London buddies soon!
we are also playing over Easter weekend which should be fun!
Oooh really when/where?
I'm away for the Easter weekend though, soz :( Any other new bands I should come see you in?
I do have a couple new things I'm working on ;)
ah very nice, you'll need to come to a couple Dulwich Hamlet games ;)
(had already looked at the home fixture list, 18th April?)
let's get it booked.
You'd love it tbf, cheap match, great atmos, trendy team colours and you can drink craft beers pitch-side
Was dead 90s but did give me an amazing idea for commissioning Roly Porter or someone to work with a visual artist to create a 'Planetarium Apocalypse Experience' or something for Unsound or somewhere. Would be ace. How do I get funding for this?
He's done quite a few Planetarium shows over the years with White Noise and the like.
There was me thinking I had finally come up with an original idea.
(if you answer with "newcastle" I will hunt you down and kill you)
Thanks for nothing.
Unless there's two. Don't ask me questions if you're just going to Google the answer before I get a chance to respond. I thought we were having a friendly chat.
Which left me stressed, knackered, wheezy from all the dust and meant that I couldn't make it down to the final A-Z night on Friday or Retrospectacular in Saturday. On the plus side, I did drive a long wheelbase transit around for a few days.
Off to see a one-man Breaking Bad comedy show thing this week, as well as making a (hopefully triumphant) return to five-a-side football on Tuesday.
pretty much hate myself now
Sending out snotty emails. Because I'm at home and no-one can touch me.
Inch or so of snow here. Looks pretty.
...a girl I went on a few dates with about 6 months ago was killed in a car crash about a month ago. Very sad. Sudden rush of impending mortality.
She was really nice, we didn't hit it off but we stayed in touch a little and saw each other from time to time in a friendly capacity. It's so sad, she was my age, her poor friends and family must be distraught. Just a horrible reminder of how cruelly life can be cut short.
Alan Mcgee is lovely
i'm going back to bed.
Lots of brunching and relaxing and sleeping. Saturday night I had a very yummy risotto made for me M LOOKING AT YOU MUNDY
just a bowl of gloopy starch
but this one was deeeelish.
my excellent internet friend Meowington
so I don't know.
And you've inspired me to go much further in my quest for a decent risotto meal.
but nowadays i like them
has the world changed or have i changed?
My best work friend's (shut up) boss came in to have a monstrously inappropriate chat about said friend/colleague that lasted half an hour, before I'd even got through deleting all my unread email.
About his child's MASSIVE DRUGS habit. Can't deal with this shit. Not today.
really need a wee but don't want to have to step all over where he's working
that I'm delivering a 3 hour lecture to over a hundred legal professionals in two weeks time that I haven't even started putting together. hahhahaa I'm so shit.
Work is quite interesting just now but really, i'm quite up for just giving it up soon and selling the family silver as I think I prefer being off work.
Loved being off on study leave. Loved it.
was that your final ones?
One horror show, but if the others went alright then I only need 45% in that one so fingers crossed.
If I passed them then I'm all done, yeah.
UK results came out today so there is much wailing/gnashing of teeth/rending of clothing/celebrating going on for those today. Not for me, because I passed mine early last year because I'm a massive swot. Keeping my head down today for that reason.
ANXIOUS TIMES! So good if you've passed!! Will that enable you to push off and leave your place in the lurch? Or is it worth sticking around until later in the year and seeing how it goes without horror boss around for a while?
I applied for a job just before exams that I'm waiting to hear back from. Since I've been looking, there's been nothing that's came up where I've thought "shit, that'd be perfect if I'd only passed these exams" but you do see more jobs popping up around results times, for obvious reasons.
I'm clearing off at some point. I've been doing the bare minimum for too long now (demotivated and not giving a fuck) so have to move on one way or another. Which is fine.
Looking forward to getting some peace in the summer all the same.
been working on a cool track today, hopefully have a whole EP done by the end of the week then I can feel guilt-free for being lazy for a few more months.
spent the weekend working, and then was up till 7 Sunday Morning drinking. Then had to get up a few hours later to check out of the hotel and drive back from Birmingham.
Have Thursday and Friday off in exchange, but will be spending it moving house which is both :D because the house is lovely and it's two days off and :'( because moving house is stressful and it will be a pain in the arse.
Friday - drinking in Soho from midday. Never a good idea.
Saturday - pizza in bed and Netflix
Saturday evening - night out with friends at Alan Mgee's night
Early hours of Sunday morning - in my friend's flat with some very short guy that resembled a hairy bear. He took all his clothes off to Madonna whilst I was having a heart to heart with my friend, then proceeded to get the toilet plunger and try to, ahem, sit on it. And do things with it.
Sunday - had friends over for beer and I made a veggie cottage pie with gravy and stuff.
Great weekend. Feeling rough now.
The secret is in the seasoning.
Going to treat myself to some stationary and ORGANISE tonight. Yep, actually excited about that.
Let's report back about how our lives have changed tomorrow please.
Def going to bed earlier from now on.
Got a better idea of when CoC is now so I can start planning travels/work around it, yay! Think I'm gonna do my Scandinavia/Baltics trip in mid April, back for the gen election and my birthday and hopefully family hol to Malta the week after that. Mega excited, apparently the Latvian hostel I'm looking at has an AK47 shooting class in an old Russian bunker.
really good fun, the film was very good albeit it quite uncomfortable.
i saw a girl who i fell in love with but didn't find her at the party afterwards, i need to somehow find her.
good to see the whole film festival team letting their hair down after knocking their pans in for the last couple of weeks.
i consumed an obscene amount of booze.
Dancing on tables and destroying drinks. Next thing I know I'm outside a nightclub at three in the morning kissing one of them having barely talked to them before.
Still don't know how that one happened. It was great though!
Too old for this shit
three hours of that has been in meetings just about to go into another 1 1/2 hours of meetings.
