I'm in work. All my friends and housemates are off today. I am not pleased about this.
What are you doing today?
but i have no work to do
Made a cup of tea with TWO teabags but even that hasn't helped.
and doing the same tomorrow from 7am so can't even get blotto after.
then going to Blackpool to the TV's parents for easter Sunday.
in the spirit of the season I feel I'm sacrificing myself for your sins
so was walking to work excited about getting a big greasy subway breakfast. Subway's shut so had to buy a BLT for £3.40 from a petrol station. Everything's going wrong
Also, Subway does breakfast?
6 inch grotty sausage, grotty egg & grotty bacon sub + sauce + grotty coffee for £2.60
^ Grindr profile
And delivering assorted wedding paraphernalia.
Good Friday one and all, especially if you're working.
But she's calmed down now.
Four, all baked yesterday.
Is it tomorrow? can I help? :DDDDD I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU AND WOR LASS.
We've got pretty much everything covered...
The best man's already missed his train from Newcastle though - can you be on-call to make speeches?
and make sure you upload some pics v soon!
gonna do loads of housework and reading toady. my best pal from uni is visiting this weekend :) :) :)
Now come on, stop griping. you have a job1 Lots of people would love to be workgin today but can't.
that said, I have just strolled in and am going to nip off I an hour for brunch and then lunch and then dermatologist, BUT in between that time, I am going to make sweet sweet law to my desk. THE PHONE HAS NOT RUNG ONCE!! (tbf my phone never rings anyway as I route all my calls to Debs my PA.) DEBS'S PHONE HAS NOT RUNG ONCE!!!
So now, I am going to come up with a hybrid corporate legal structure that nobody has ever done before. I am about 80% through my thinking for it but I need a big push today to get it over the line. Help?
I enjoyed "I am going to make sweet sweet law to my desk" by the way! Is that standard law bants?
Can't help you with law unfortunately, I studied archaeology in uni!
I wll try to think up some more for you.
I've just read the bit of legislation that I was putting off reading because it was either going to make my new invention workable or illegal. it's not illegal, which is a grEat start. whether or not it is workable will mean I now have ot do some more thinking, and speak to the housing regulator and maybe someone at DBIS when they are open again on Tuesday, but *fingers crossed* BY GEORGE I THINK I'VE GOT IT. waaah.
You've accomplished all of this before 10:30! Impressive. I'm on my second tea break here.
Archaeology sounds cool but I've never been employed in the sector (it collapsed here post-recession and never recovered) and now I work for a multinational while moonlighting as a bass player for hire.
Go to the gym, tidy the flat then go to the pub this afternoon for my first drink in a couple of months. Probably be in bed for 7pm.
Still in bed. Made some coffee though. Want to read all of do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep before seeing the final cut of Blade Runner on Monday so gonna crack on with that. Pub later tho, innit.
A hot drink in bed is one of life's great pleasures. Made tea last Saturday and went back to bed with it. Joy.
Still in my PJs, it's all good
Yep, that's a good morning by my standards.
went to an ace ska night in Camden last night and drank half a cider all night. This whole not drinking thing has been a massive wake up call to me and I still got up and danced on chairs at The Elephant's Head and was hopefully good company even sober.
I'm about to head to Wales, hope work doesn't drag on for too long :)
It was brilliant. Danced so much I didn't need a drink.
Now you know you can do it mits you'll be able to do it again!
a stupid one too, really wanted to smack the guy that caused it.
either way what's your entrance music?
without any entrance music
Drinks too much wine with the leaders debate so now struggling to raise enough energy to do anything, managed to make and eat potato waffles, eggs, polony and tomatoes though which helped.
Be hot cross bun elevenses time soon I guess
Just sitting back with some tea and an easter egg I got from work ready to crack open at 12noon (not acceptable before this time at the very earliest). Not sure what to do with my weekend. Went to the opening night of Chatsworth House with the posh 41 yr old woman at work though and she wants to come for some tea when her sons *fencing* tonight. Need to go and buy another cup.
you're gonna get banged senseless, whether you like or not sonny!!!
Still coming up to Scotland for work/ to visit us in a couple of weeks?
I am actually speaking at an event 5-7 that night (about tax, hahah, I know NOTHING about tax) but will be free after and my better half will be free about 5 anyway.
avail yourselves of the free wine and heckle.
It's all about land and buildings tax now! Came into force on Wednesday and changes EVERYTHING for commercial leases, wait, i appear to have narcoplepsy.....zzzzzzz
(the wine will be shite as it always is at these things. what say you guys keep a booth warm for me at sleazy's and I'll be round by 6.45.)
Absolutely. 17th April and 19th April - getting in on the friday about 16:00! Wheeeeeey!
17th is good :)
Was supposed to be in, but not made it, ended up drinking all the wine last night.
Taking my favourite customers out for lunch later, looking forward to it! :)
In the financial district, fuck all is open. Just went to meet C for a late breakfast and tried the following, all of which were shut: where the monkey sleeps, babu, ken & co, Madisons get stuffed. Ended up having to go to costa on suachiehall street. I didn't have a coat on (as I thought i was just nipping to the next block) and I got soaked.
Last good Friday was the same- it's the trainee solicitor changeover as they rotate to new seats on Tuesday, and we had to give the girl her leaving lunch at jacker de viande, who only had a limited menu which was 'burger, burger with cheese, burger with cheese and bacon, and she ended up just having a bit of brioche and cheese cos we forgot she was veggie. hahahaha.
This year we thought ahead and we have a table booked at moskito for 20 people. they have a new menu which looks alright!
(big long story, can you tell I'm bored now? I managed to secure my nobel prize within an hour of getting to the office this morning, I need something else to do now.)
i'm gonna drink lots of wine! :)
scallops and steeeeak!!! (love the blade of beef. not a fan of their burger though.) I am guessing you will go... sancerre, wait no-- are you impressing the clients? You'll go montrachet for the white. Got to be amarone red?
I'm going to have wrong temperature glass of merlot with lipstick smeared on the rim of the glass at moskito, I am spitting with jealousy!
such a bad pun coffee shop name.
not working tonight because i've got family coming up from that london and said no to an extra shift because it's my only afternoon/evening free whilst they're here. my mam made me get up early today to clean and sweep the floors in preparation. had a late finish and was dead busy last night as well, could have done with more sleep. they better mention how clean the house looks or else.
It was a no brainer. Get paid as per normal, 2 extra days annual leave and £600 inconvenience allowance. I'm working remotely (the office is shut for maintenance) and I haven't got out of bed yet. Zero inconvenience.
Went out straight from work until about 1am (which to me is like 5am). Got a pocketful of receipts for around £100 of booze and we stayed on pints all night and i wasn't even buying my fair share. Dunno why we do it. Absolute nobhead stuff. Don't even like boozing beyond the third pint or so.
Chalk it up to experience and try to move on, spilt milk etc etc! a small hair of the dog that bit you might help.
100 quid (or more if you weren't buying your fair share on beer?) Even if you were somewhere that charges 5 per pint, that is A LOT OF BEER. no wonder you feel like shite. Eat some carbs.
ALREADY. Turns out they pre-ordered so the food was there within a minute of us sitting down. And as nobody was drinking, we just left as soon as we were finished our food (one course). I had ignored the email re the pre-ordering, so had to order some last minute chips. What is the point of going for lunch on a day when you're working and the rest of the work isn't, unless you're intent on spinning it out to three hours? I am so sad now.
but doing a job app is due today which feels like work (or maybe worse).
Got next week off though, so as soon as I've finished it this afternoon I'm going to go and get ponced and start my holiday.
What's happening? what are you going to do with your week off?
Sorry, finished my app and drank heavily :)
Going to Budapest next week. Haven't been abroad for quite a few months so looking forward to it.
Started shopping then realised I couldn't be fucked, now in stereo having a beer/s
as I chucked work and went back to moskito. I am now back though because I forgot stuff I have to do.
Walk the dog and all that
to get dermarollered. Huge regret now, booking this appointment for today. Give the dog a clap and a squeeze!
I've a bottle of Buckie waiting for me. It'll only be my second one ever!
Get in amongst it Kallgeese
Good job Irish ban on alcohol sales on Good Friday. Causing record numbers of house parties for many years and many more years to come.
I had a bacon roll for breakfast and a glass of prosecco for lunch :/
Got a bit of a taste for it
the best advice is re buckfast- it's either 'make sure you line your stomach well' or it's 'whatever you do don't eat first'. So pick one and you have a 50% chance of being good!
I realise this is most unhelpful.
I'm sure it was in an 'Oor Wullie' annual...
Due to the six hour time difference I'm currently eating a late breakfast and doing a tiny wafer thin amount of work. Will hopefully be done and dusted by noon. People have decorated their houses for Easter here, it's rather confusing. Are they celebrating Jesus or the Easter Bunny or just rampant consumerism? 'Murikah, yer mental.
The Thai restaurant we were in tonight insisted on giving us shots after we paid. I avoided the blue one but cottoned on that it was aftershock. Just the thought of it made me want to chunder but we used to go crazy for that stuff.
after work yesterday i went to play pool, turned £10 into £30 by sharking. then went to the casino and turned £30 into £300.
