Whats everyone up to today?
me - finishing work then hotel breakfast, then glorious sleep.
Reading news on my phone. I will now have a glass of water and a shower then get dressed and put on make up. I will then walk to work eating a banana and listening to podcasts. I will then go to my office and make a coffee and eat some weetabix. I will then do my work. Need to call someone and ask a favour, do some research, write an article, plan an event, write a briefing. Might leave work before 6 :)
(Didn't really listen to any new music in 2014 so I'm like a year behind) and sociology critical theory discussions. And also some boring ones about the EU. Should really get some French ones.
I wrote a reply but I wasn't logged in. More fun!
can it get any funner!?
It might get lovelier though - WHO BLUDDY KNOWS
been sleeping loads better since i got back into running properly. still having the odd bad night though.
I am back on it next week with my mad routine.
Forget about it.
Been an average Wednesday.
Always found that scene a bit...odd.
trying to sleep here
of anyone in London looking for a house mate then please let me know, thanks. I'm looking to move in next month/two months. Thanks.
so going to bed soon. Have started running twice a day for past 4 days now though. Feeling quite good about this.
Hanging. Made it in on time though. Thanks for the pep talk mwt & ch...
i drank more than i intended to last night, in saying that i feel rather good this morn, maybe it's the sun.
i did however wake to a huge text from the ex talking about how upset she is, how she can't stop thinking about us and how sorry she is for everything that's happened.
anyway, the real schalke game was good fun last night.
I really hope you two can work out the right way to go. Good luck with it all bd
the right way to go would be her on one continent and me on another! ;)
to give a lecture. 9am lectures are filthy.
Can someone tell me what to get my gf for her birthday, please? My only idea right now is a bird feeder (tap in there), which might actually be the worst gift conceived since someone got me a digital photo frame keyring for Secret Santa a few years ago.
When my bf comes to stay in April we're going to make it out birthday weekend (his is in march mine in May) and go around Brussels doing cool stuff... Going to this really cool retro bowling alley in my neighbourhood, going to a pottery workshop and making cups with cool animals on them, eating loads of delicious food and drinking nice beers, cycling, go to some cool galleries. Just gonna pack the whole weekend with amazing stuff and eat loads and have the best time. Much better than a present.
Might need to step up and get an actual concrete thing this time.
Sounds like a nice weekend though. Thanks for the suggestion.
if it does what ours did and attracts rats. Not much birthday fun there.
This could work.
Can you ask her to do a long list and you can pick one or two things off it, so that there's an element of surprise but you have some guidance?
Like, my birthday list was:
jewellery with blue opals in it;
black flat pumps for work;
black suede heels for work;
voucher for my facialist;
mini leather briefcase that can double as a handbag or handbag that can fit a legal pad and ipad in;
NAKED 2 eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay;
anything from lush Karma range.
there were other bits and bobs in here but that's what I can remember. I don't know if any of this will work for your gf as I don't know her!
My family asked me to do this btw, I wasn't being presumptuous :D They have had a busy and stressful time lately and needed a steer- going to do it every year from now on as it gave them inspiration.
Got home last night to find our very own Jordan Numbers had sent me a Toffee Crisp Honeycomb. It's undoubtedly a) the best thing I've received through the post and b) a 10/10 chocolate bar. I need to find some more this lunchtime.
Tonight, a THIRD person is meant to be coming to look at my old bike. Let's hope third time lucky.
From making the obvious your mum joke.
we might be moving into a post "you mum" era
though I can't be sure
(Totally works, shut up.)
Winifred woke us up a number of times again last night, but i didn't check the time too often and am unsure if i was awake at the time the thread was started.
We decided to not let her into our room as neither of us are particularly up for being jumped on in our sleep. I hope the neighbours can't hear the meowing too loudly and also that she stops doing it; it's not going to get her anywhere. Hopefully she'll be happier once she can go outside.
Might finally have access to a database I've been trying to access for weeks, so i suppose i should try to enjoy investigating what it's saying for itself. Happy hump day.
Good shout. Horrible weather this morning and I'm having a stinker of a morning in work.
Just looking forward to playing football tonight and then watching the end of the Chelsea game. This week is going to be the quietest in a long time.
Jesus, this is going to be a slog.
Nearly gave away my missus's's' birthday surprise to my said missus last night. Hate it when that happens.
It was a set of bathroom scales.
N.B. My Dad bought my Mum a set of bathroom scales as a present once. They are still happily married.
Even after his departure, his ghost still treads the footbridge between platforms 7 and 4.
but mostly the platforms.
Finally got my annual appraisal result today 'strong'/'no potential' probably should leave
although unlike many of you, I did actually sleep between the hours of 5 and 8. The room was too hot to get to sleep and I woke covered in a sweat rash. NICE. It doesn't feel quite warm enough yet to be turning off the central heating, but I think I will have to.
Got a 5am rise tomorrow to get the red eye to Lahhhhndan with the senior partner of the firm, so I can't even just turn up late and snort pro-plus in the bogs of the plane. Wah wah and more WAH.
slept so badly last night I was honestly thinking about calling in sick today. Saw Will Franken do some incredibly bizarre but brilliant comedy last night, I'd definitely recommend going to see him next time he's back in town.
Probably going to try and get to jiujitsu later on but for now I'm going to hunker down and drink all the coffee.
Ask my pal for some of his mus and he brought over the box and I was like do you have a wee bowl or a mug or something? And he was like oh I thought you were just going to use that. Then he poured muesli into his coffee and ate it.
Idk if it's a thing there maybe
get the hell out of there dd
Are you Idlewild Friday?
got a nice ripe avocado to eat today
gonna do my mam a card with her favourite dog on the front for mothers day
:( send help
jk let's all work.
wrking with the most impossible director at the moment, doing the 5th round of notes on the same thing and going back to stuff i had originally that he didn't like.
hate working like this.
Cross-checking two lists of around 700 documents. They're not machine readable, and each list is unsorted in a different way.
Five year undergraduate degree. Four year PhD. Three and a half years of nails hard professional qualifications.
Fuck me I'm bored.
Might get soup for lunch.
and then SUMIF/VLOOKUP?
Thought about it, but the titles are too variable/non-standard/not quite the same in each list for it to be any more efficient, I reckon.
Good shout though.
looks like an alien egg or something. eww
