I feel so old and useless and pointless. :(
I'm in a shitty mood so I can't be arsed to retype it. You might be old (I'm not sure what counts as old) but you're neither of the other two.
Did far too much coke at a house party on Saturday and then ate all the food on Sunday.
Also, why do complete strangers always ask me for relationship advice? I've been with the same girl for 9 years. There was no Tinder of Plenty of Fish when we started going out. Damn kids with your music.
creaky I find you informative and witty.
I'm still sore about this: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4460748#r8503594
cba with work. Hoping the £60 tie I bought using gift vouchers from work will make me a sure thing in my interview (INTERVIEW) on Friday.
We'll go with the cheery uppy version. h2h
I missed the thanks.
Would never have spent that much of my own money, but I loved spending money from my current work on something to try and get me a different job.
Got four more days to bore on before the actual thing, so I'm going to shut up about it until my "I'm so nervous my bumwee is physically lifting me off the seat" post on Friday morning.
but I'm not so sure I deserve your good opinion as much as you may think.
I may be a bit of a fraud....sure Im nice enough, but Im irresponsible with money...Im like a kid, Im not a grown up, I just have no adultness :(
I seem to think everything will turn out alright if I think nice things.
You don't want to take me as an example
We're all still children, aren't we? I'm absolutely terrible with money - yesterday I spent nearly £50 on Lego and I've just ordered about the same amount in comics. Lego and comics, creaky. Lego and comics.
says that you never settle into a feeling of `adulthood`. She says that she's still `winging it` and that she's always felt that way.
`Being an adult` is a construct anyway. Who knows what it means/feels. Don't get too hung up about it :)
Wish I'd spent less of my 30s worrying about stuff like this. we're all 5 years old inside in most ways.
about how life makes us *feel*. As if feelings of instability, loneliness, inadequacy, instability and sadness etc. are somehow wrong and must be explained away/eradicated. They're all as human* as breathing, sleeping and taking a shit.
In moderation/balance of course.
I went large on Saturday night and only woke up at half-three yesterday. Went to an International Women's Day event last night where six ladies played separate sets and they all DJ-ed too.
Kept drinking with them until three in the morning and I've been up since seven now. Too much fun was had.
Thing is, were they good? or maybe more importantly, was it fun?
Are there other events throughout the month....last year there were (was that the 100th aniversary?)
Yeah, most were very good. The last three acts were amazing, three members of a band called Morning Veils all playing solo sets. Jaw-droppingly good.
It was the 100th anniversary of it being held on that day. There's talk of another event later this month but that's all up to the lady who organised it all. I hope more happens, such a positive, great night.
The audience ranged in age from late teens to early seventies which I thought was pretty cool.
Today sort of feels like a Friday as a result as tomorrow will be a write-off of plane movies and sleep.
Weekend was mainly spectacularly lazy. The GF is spending her whole life revising for a professional exam, so I am being supportive by making cups of tea and playing PS4.
Saw Birdman finally - first half great, second half not so good
Odd weekend, really. Went for a run first thing for the first time in ages - feel a bit better as a result.
Creaky, you're great.
and then the train to aberdeen for a day long design review - it's my bread and butter, but i stil get the squirly belly going up in front of the client.
while Brooke was away in Sheffield for the weekend at a pole fitness workshop. Meant I did pretty much the whole move before she got back, then when she got back I cooked her a nice 3 course meal for our 6 year(!) anniversary. Stocked up some major brownie points there.
No internet or sky in the house until the 18th :'(
singing off with 'Kind Retards' = 2.
Regretting my 4am finish this morning.
but also perilously close to singing.
I only got home at 3AM. Carting my arse to work at seven this morning was tough.
enjoyed it so much we decided to keep on going. Until 4.
Spew. My poor parents are somewhere in the sky in a plane just now. Spew.
If there's spewing it'll be as a result of a good night had by all. #nospewing
Had a pretty good weekend - saw Stewart Lee on Saturday night (indie celebwatch: saw Falco and Julia from Future of the Left there. I was tempted to awkwardly tell them how awesome they are but they seemed to be having a nice evening so I left them to it) which was great. Then last night got some news which brought a whole lot of awful stuff back which I'd been ducking for a while. Feel fairly terrible now.
But hey, creaky - chin up. You're ace.
I prescribe you to listen to the party metal thread on the music board
No music in work, just the sound of lackadaisical typing, bitter sighs and distant traffic.
and i know this week is going to be one big long drawn out stress filled shitebox.
get yerself tae fuck monday.
Had a good weekend.
I met Royter for the first time on Saturday and all I could think was "oh shit HE KNOWS ABOUT MY BREAD HABITS fuuuuck". Thanks for not mentioning it, Royter.
My bum hurts from cycling a lot.
sure, 'bread habits'
but I still haven't quite forgiven him for lifting me up and dropping me on my head at the windmill (I blame everything on this singular concussion.)
(especially as I was with a non-internet person)
guess who it was!
(it was alcxxk)
he seems to be the one that crops up most
Spent far too much money with the T.V. on Saturday. New denim jacket, fleece lined for his comfort (been looking for one for ages). Bought it in this 'cowboy' shop which basically looked like Urban Outfitters for ZZ Top / Sons of Anarchy fans. I could barely contain myself, nearly bought the most hideous belt buckle and a bolo tie with a texas fastening JUST BECAUSE. Thank god someone else was there to restrain me.
Saw Birdman and yeah I really enjoyed it but I don't think it's an all time classic. It reminded me a bit of American Hustle - hear me out - in that it was just a giant farce of huge overly ridiculous characters. It was beautifully shot and I loved the use of music, plus Emma Stone was legit great.
Last night saw Charles Cohen play live. I'd had a few too many belgian beers in the park to celebrate the first sunny day in Paris so I was drifting away nicely.
Off to Bratislava with work until tuesday this pm, I have a ton of stuff to do though and I'm off to Lille on Friday to spend a little time with my parents so I should really get off here...
I sense another 0% balance transfer on the horizon.
Only dullards are good with money.
just checked, pretty brutal :(
tears at my desk. who on earth would poison a dog? (crufts. wish I hadn't read that story.)
Don't be mean, dave. It's such a lovely looking dog. some cunt has killed it.
I spent the weekend eating pancakes, being entertained by a grumpy multicoloured shrimp in an aquarium, running around on a hockey pitch swearing at my lack of fitness and planning a trip to the robot cafe in Tokyo.
Balls to acting responsibly.
My weekend was very lovely in certain places. I sat in the garden a lot which made me happy and so excited for summer in my new home!
Although, now I am SO ill with a combination of anxiety, sickness from having some mozerella and a creme fraiche dip, and tonsilitis, yet again *sigh*/*sob*
Also my throat is HUGE anyway WITH tonsils in. I'm a bit worried what it'll be like without them.
^ this is not meant to be sexy, its a genuine concern.
that's why you usually have them out as a kid
being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up
Managed to sleep quite a bit on my night shift last night so I'm staying up, watching the cricket, doing some revision then cinema and 5-a-side later. Making up for my lack of weekend a bit.
(I give it three days)
I've got to swim 16 straight lengths crawl at lunch. Almost literally shitting myself.
Please don't shit yourself in the pool, it'll ruin your day x
Had three pints early doors on Friday but back by 8pm for my tea so not a heavy night. But I didn't have much water and got really hot in the night and woke up feeling terrible and really tired as if I'd been out to the early hours drinking loads. And yesterday going round the shops I kept getting so hot I'd feel sick and light headed. What's wrong with me? It's not that not is it?
Also saw Chappie, which was entertaining. The whole Die Antwood angle makes it quite odd, they kind of play gangster versions of themselves; their music's all over it, they wear Die Antwood t-shirts and have the same names. Hugh Jackman's great and Sigourney Weaver massively underused.
And well still today, fever, stiff all that jazz. First time I have been sick in years. Had to fly to London this morning and I took the flight anyway but after 30 mins in the office I think I am just going to go try and sweat it out in the hotel for the day and be alright for me meetings tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
Breathing through my mouth has dried my lips and I feel so rough, can't have days off with a cold though
Creaky, being a grown up isn't about managing money or whatever its to do with accepting yourself and others for what they and you are. Pretty sure you've got that covered xx
problem is I was accepting myself in a way that is self harmful, because it accepts me being irresponsible :(
So have to do that today as they are sending a man from the local paper to report it, problem is I pretended I was a 13 year old child to win it (poem about crisps) so going to have to make myself look younger as really want to go and get the tour. Might just say it was my son who entered it but he is gone, then do a sad face which will make them think the worst has happened and give me the tour I desired so much.
In a chauffeured driven Beemer now on my way to the factory! Totally can wait to see the process and get loads of Lovely Jubbly crisps (for free, jealous?) This is my heaven.
then say something about crisp and chocolate factories still being a dream for adults....why should kids have all the fun......they'll be able to make a story out of that....they'll have fun with it.
Heard the last boy who got given the VIP tour was given 10 (ten) boxes of oddities (you know broken/warped crisps) to take home with him and I am talking free, FREE!!! Just pulling into an industrial estate now which I don't recognise from 'google' maps but guess this must be the other entrance for Very Important guests!!! Stoked
you deserve this
Just in reception now, they said they need to find the larger hair net as they weren't expecting an adult sized child (aka An Adult man) There are a couple of other winners here which is a bit annoying as I was lead to believe this was going to be a 1 on 1 bespoke tour but as long as they are silent the whole time it won't be too bad, one of them has a 'I heart crisps' hat on which is a bit try hard IMHO
If you concentrate on expressing your simple, heartfelt love of crisps and your humble background, there's a chance you'll be offered the factory.
I have literally seen, and I am not lying, about 5 billion crisps already, seen the flavour adder machine, it's run by a computer called C-G.Nome 222k and is apparently so clever it 'learns' to add flavour when it is needed, I keep on saying the joke 'does anyone fancy a snack, well I know when we can get one' then suggestively nodding towards the 'crisp hopper' The others think it is hilarious I think as they keep raising their eyebrows! Next stop is the packaging section which makes me buzz (audibly) with excruciating excitement as it means we are closer to getting our hands on some crunchy yummy crisps!!!!!!!!! Heaven
I've had maybe one of the greatest weekends. For various reasons. I'm so happy that I don't even care how little sleep I've had. (Fuck off, Monday)
Local opticians want £40 for contact lens appointment then £20 EXTRA for thirty pairs.
They told me they can't do anything with the price
is balancing moments of maturity with moments that make partners/parents/friends sigh with exasperation, at least that's been the case for me. Anyway to echo the above, you're a top chap creaks.
Liam Williams was well good on Friday, for a show with a relatively serious title it was actually quite ramshackle and towards the end surprisingly dark. Saw the folks on Saturday watched Appropriate Behaviour on Sunday, wasn't bad to be honest I'll always have time for whimsical films about Brooklyn hipsters.
called Coffee and Breakfast Goods
I miss her. I hope she's safe.
Got vertigo and was feeling pretty queasy earlier. It's easing off but I still can't lean forwards without my head spinning. Got dressed at 4 and am still in bed (y)
