Today is my Thursday.
Also my appraisal day.
Then going to Brixton later to see alcxxk's band.
hope the appraisal goes well.
Another glorious day in glasgow, can't be arsed working, would so much rather go for a big walk in the country followed by some lunch and beers in the sun.
Today is my Friday. 'Nuff said
At least Thurs and Fri look like decent weather.
omg so good
Couldn't fall asleep until 3 so pretty knackered and feeling sad today
BUT it's smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel day!
The all you can eat one off Upper Street?
it's proper cheap and BYOB
This place is proper gujarati. Went there are got mistaken for an indian soap star by the staff. Chef came out to see if it really was said indian soap star, took one look at me, turned to the staff member and said in gujarati "Oi your mum, this brother comes from this village, don't get my hopes up like that again"
I cracked up. Thanks Mum and Dad for teaching me Gujarati
The food was so good. I could eat like that daily. I will have to bring my Gujarati friend and see what she says!
Stupidly cheap and the food is great. Those chickpea fritter things they have in various dishes are incredible. I particularly like writing down my order and taking it to the till.
i had a crap nights sleep too, ended it was a girl i was i kinda seeing last night, it was sad and she was so sweet about it, just kept thinking about it hence my not getting to sleep properly
Those situations are never fun.
Sounds grim, that. Although at least you didn't have a blazing row or whatnot.
she also sent me a lovely text this morn which almost had me in tears.
Breaking up is horrid even when it's calm/new. Get yourself a nice breakfast!
Chin up big man!
Today is my Wednesday, shitter.
Glorious day in London, gonna hit up Exmouth Market for a burrito at lunch and sit in the park.
I'm going to try to work out what L-P means today.
Small ambition, it is true, but I might just suceed for a change.
Today is also my Wednesday, which is a dose as the weather is beautiful here. I'd love to go for a long walk.
Went out for a few pints for my friend's birthday and it was a great evening. Feeling good in work and looking forward to my (in)glorious return to football later.
Waiting to hear do I have a place to stay with my mates for Primavera Barcelona. Fingers crossed otherwise I'll be on my own.
AND I'm working from home!
got the good car space though so loathed to move the car. Life
I slept on the couch last night and got a full night's sleep; so did everyone else too, which helped, so finally i am feeling better! Thank fuck.
Good luck with the appraisal. Any mention of appraisals and I can't think of anything other than Big Keith in The Office.
I'm at Brooke's work as she was hit side on by another car this morning on her way to work and is a bit upset Helping her get it sorted with insurance etc. The cunt must have been motoring, her car is fucked.
is she alright?
no injuries have presented yet, hopefully there won't be any whiplash or back pain coming on later. Mainly just shocked and really upset.
Couldn't you? Warm thoughts from Essex being sent to you x
That's very lovely, Thank you! :)
playing the DiS extravanganza in Brixton this evening, come down early and catch us please: https://www.facebook.com/events/1575291766075028/
looking forward to it
plz say hi this time okay?
although there's a good chance I'll be watching football round the back when I'm not playing ha.
It might be my Thursday if I can get this Friday off to look after my niece, which would be THE BEST DAY.
It's so sunny and arm today in Glasgow- I think we get the best of the weather in the uK today, should the beeb news be believed.
Hopefully managed to pull in two massive new clients this week- one of whom is promising to build the next Microsoft, and another who heads up one of the largest family firms/ funds in the UK. Really hope this comes off.
Either the glass on my desk is vibrating or I'm getting the start of a migraine :(
Morning pniz, hope the appraisal goes well!
Sorry to hear about the girl, lopes.
Enjoy the buritto, J-Iron. Enjoy the bagel, Meow. Fingers crossed Kallgo. Nice work, Sheeldz, morning Aphex, NV and F_Stax and everyone I've missed.
(despite the rage thread I've just posted)
Knackered. Ridden 300 miles in the past 3 days. Really heavy legs and saddle sore. Trying to motivate myself to get out and do another 100 miles today, but struggling tbh.
On the plus side, the farmers tan is looking great.
Download it and use the ride as an excuse to listen to it.
Can't trust the traffic if I can't hear it.
basically just checking my emails. have two actual pieces of work i need to do today. each will take about an hour. i would love to work from home once a week.
getting the bus to london on friday morning and the night bus back on sunday night. then working monday and tuesday (although my office is being redecorated so i will need to squat somewhere... might ask to work from home). then off until 13th may!!! (except i'm using my annual leave to campaign full time for the election so probably even more work).
Feeling really good this morning. Had a good training session, good coffee and just drained my cauliflower ear.
Teaching some first year medics about muscle relaxants in a bit. Gonna force the boys to work in groups with girls in an effort to get them to talk to each other. Always amazes me how awkward the lads are.
in guy/guy situations though?
:D Your mind firmly in the gutter as usual EMO
Muscle relaxants, forcing boys - You were asking for it.
After my housemates decided it would be fun to take loads of alcohol to the park at 1am like teenagers and drag me along (it actually was kind of fun to be honest). As such, I am sacking off all productive things and staying in bed watching the fun marathon of The Flash, Agents of SHIELD, iZombie and Community. Might be having a BBQ this afternoon.
On the ferry to Helsinki. Psyched, I have wanted to go to Finland for ages (always gets overlooked when people rave about Scandinavia but the Finns are totally badass). Eating chocolate and Finnish pringles in the bar with a window seat. Hope the weather across the gulf is as nice as it's been in Tallinn!
been pining for finland a lot recently. tell them off for their awful general election results though.
sent a shitty text last night that i regret
getting work piled on today
nice one, taz
Last day at this job innit. Getting taken out for dinner tonight which'll be grand, though I'm pretty knackered as I spent a lot of the night thinking about how much I had to get done today.
Today is my Friday.
Tonight I take the Megabus to London and tomorrow I fly to Marseilles and then travel to Hyeres for a fashion and photography festival followed by several days of exploring Provence.
I'll be rubbing shoulders/perineums with Karl Lagerfeld, The Princess of Hanover (you know the one) and Virginie Viard, who as you all know is Chanel’s Creative Studio Director.
When I get back Lo-Pan and EMO will have to move over and recognise the new style supremo. All questions on fashion and beauty to me please.
dark brown, almost aubergine shoes and belt.
What watch and tie should I wear?
Maybe something by Kentex like this http://www.kentex-jp.com/en/watch/79/
As for a tie, well there's a straight choice between two opposing camps right now. It's either classic style like Versace http://tinyurl.com/versace-tie or a bold statement http://tinyurl.com/owvhomo.
Watch is ok, quite nice but a bit busy for my taste.
That tie is ok - which colour combo? Do you really think it will go with the purple?
Obviously that last tie is not for me.
brain surgery on you?
The grey. Of course it will go with the purple.
Most of this shit is about confidence.
I've been wearing arseless chaps and a WW1 German flying cap all morning. One of the cleaners said I had a unique look.
It's all about the confidence!
Is this appropriate attire for going to the local shop?
You'll look ridiculous without one of these http://g01.s.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1_JPgFVXXXXcMXXXXq6xXFXXX5/221501733/HTB1_JPgFVXXXXcMXXXXq6xXFXXX5.jpg
Don't forget to rub some tiger balm on the old boy.
(Lo-Pan and EMO would've probably suggested some right toss)
have this tradition where they buy each other a kids film on VHS each year for christmas but one year they both got each other the same film...
I got you babe.
/not my joke
i'm watching some lenny susskind lectures at home atm. then i'll go to the library in a couple of hours, maybe get some lunch on the way?
weirdly not bothered about getting sufjan tickets, even though i actually like carrie and lowell. might get a ticket for arca + jessie kanda in hackney though. is st. johns church good for electronic music ?
the communist party of great britain aren't standing any candidates in my constituency :(
ok i bought an arca + kanda ticket. which dis queers are going?
I've booked Friday off so I can go crazy (have a cider or 2) at Screaming Females Thursday night. Last night I went to see Sharon von Etten. It was most pleasant.
and Botanist were also brilliant, I completely forgot that they used dulcimers alongside a mini organ to create their music.
Training tonight I think my ankle is finally at the point where I can start doing stand-up techniques again.
Appraisal s are always fun, although to be honest if there are issues they should be brought up before the annual thing rolls around
Accidentally bought green tea with mint instead of peppermint, reckon its going to take a bit of getting used to
Think of doing take a picture of the inside of your fridge thread. What do we reckon?
I smashed my appraisal. I put it down to all your good vibez <3
Incredibly sorry for your loss. x
And my manager has just told me that they didn't need me in the end!
Sunshine music! Forty-nine minutes left in work.
So well done me. I'm going to go for a little walk now.
I'd chalk that down as a victory.
