Started watching Captain America, The Winter Soldier.
Put new microwave in position.
with your microwave
Slept appallingly and am now in a foul mood. Not even excited about holibobs!! in a few days.
I should get a coffee.
if so apologies Epimer
Going to heed your advice and fetch a black coffee that's the size of my face.
should be measured in faces.
But then I have a big face so I'm just being greedy.
"It's a nice face, there's just a lot of it."
I'm not even really a horse.
I worked from home yesterday as the cold got a bit worse but I'm back in the office today as I'm feeling a bit better. exciting times, I'm sure we can all agree.
We're going with a couple of my old school chums for pie at Sweeney & Todd this evening. they do lovely chips, although I've a suspicion they only do them at lunch, just to pissing me off. Still, PIE! mighthave a Steak & Stilton, although one always needs to check what seasonal offerings they've got.
I'm hoping that the final act isn't just a load of smashing stuff up like the first Avengers film. I switched that off with about 25 minutes to go, I find it hard to get excited about extended action scenes where there's absolutely no sense of peril whatsoever.
Didn't think it would matter.
but that on in Avengers Assemble was an utter visual treat to my eyes.
nice wee morn up here, i'm pretty hungry and fancy a bagel with smoked salmon and phily, might go get one.
Going out for some tacos and beers tonight.
Spent last night watching the Twilight Zone and watching cider. It was brilliant.
Still got loads of work to do before I'm off next week. Still can't be arsed.
can't be too careful though.
...I need a coffee.
Huge coup when I realised it was Thursday. Good climbing session yesterday which has left me satisfyingly achey this morning.
Given my sense of elation I can only imagine what you must be going through right now
I fly to berlin early tomorrow morning and i am petrified. I had a huge 2am tizzy!
I also seem to have dyed my hair black by mistake.
its been ages since i was last there
or are you scared of Germans?
Germans are ok
After everybody's very helpful advice in the booze cruise thread yesterday I've pre-ordered all the wine and prosecco for my wedding.
Beer nerds, bought 100 bottle of this:
Anybody had it? It's got some pretty solid reviews on the world wide interweb.
Let's be toaster buddies!
I've not had the beer but anything with the words 'strong' 'dark' and 'ale' in it is bound to be good.
Gonna try and find a bottle of it at lunchtime. Don't let me down John James Sainsbury.
I feel like shit still and we have to have another(!) photoshoot in the office today. I want to be at home in my pants.
........I need a coffee
still feel asleep.
But did have two massive cups of tea before leaving the house.
And am now a jittery mess.
This meeting I've got in a minute is going to be great fun.
and I'm a little warm feeling, but I am a bit more awake. (Halfway through number 5)
Actually ran out of fucks to give.
Both excellent choices.
Then off for a bit. That'll keep my head clear enough to stick it out until SECOND INTERVIEW elsewhere in a few weeks.
I've got loads of work
Fucked Up were amazing at Shacklewell last night, one of the best (of many) times I've seen them but a lot of that was down to venue.
However, didn't sleep well and still have a sore throat and still haven't really recovered from probably the weirdest (and longest) weekend of my life, does it ever end?
I've not seen Fucked Up in years. Jealous.
totally rammed, they were played Year of the Ox, nearly died, Damian thanked me on stage aahhh.
Cool, I think I'd be alright with it ending now, after the gig last night and Wembley on Monday I think I'm good now
I'm sure your best days are ahead of you chief. The ex thing can't last forever.
well, she's moving back to Denmark on Saturday, possibly for good, so I guess that helps? She's not the only reason my weekend was so mental but she was at the beginning of it, because of course I ended up at her birthday on Friday, we all knew it right. As a result I'm going back to counselling next week.
Luckily the weekend ended a lot of better from a mixture of bizarre fate and that it looks like is going to extend into this weekend with a visit home, so that's something?
that'll help big time
or at least for a while, she doesn't want to move there permanently but she's kinda fed up with how everything's ended up in London, and keeps getting annoyed at me when I don't make some grand statement of not wanting her to go, even though really she doesn't want that anyway, it's fucked.
Obviously I feel sorry for her that she's having a shit time and it's led to this decision but you know, it's got nothing to do with me any more, I don't know what the fuck she wants
except it's london for her.
& yet we keep going back for more, again and again, because that's the hold they have on us and blarrghhh
and yet there's something about that inevitability that one is kinda in love with, makes us feel alive or something when someone is able to make you feel so good about yourself one minute and then crash it down in a matter of seconds later. Stay strong dude
which stressing me out a bit and blah, I just want some sleep
Sounds like your head is in a bit of a state and being able to chat shit and a stranger in a judgement free environment is always good for that. Glad things got better and are staying better for at least a weekend anyways.
I mean, I've been to this counsellor before but not for a while and not since any of this shit happened so it will be all new for her, sick of feeling like this and need to try and get over it, all really came to head friday night/saturday morning.
Yeah thank you, it involves going home (Norwich) to see my parents on a post-Wembley buzz and going to the coast on Saturday to meet an old friend I sorta bumped into the weekend just gone, I think it's sorely needed!
I watched goodfellas last night, was pretty decent. always thought I would hate it for some reason (think it's because I don't like ray liotta)
cos the outro to layla was on the radio which i hadn't heard in ages and i was thinking of that scene in goodfellas where lots of folk get 'taken care of'
I didn't like the ending
which is unnecessary, but then that's yer man Scorcese being his usual preistly moralistic sel'
a bit gash, but he was kind of born for that role. Love the coke paranoia on display!
yeah, can't think of many other films I like that he's been in
and I spent the whole evening reading a book, haven't done it for so long it was great.
Off to see Young Fathers tonight at Koko, I cannot find the support act details/stage times anywhere. If anyone has any knowledge on how I can find this out it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm going to go book some more holiday, then maybe pull a sickie.
fucking loved it
Going to get shitfaced in East Londontown with my chaps tonight. Gonna tip the bar staff like crazy.
Pay dirt. Off tomorrow. Yes.
controversial topic round these parts
but that means tomorrow I have a half day (yay!), and I'm going to see Kafka On The Shore at the Barbican (yay!) and then Saturday = very fun and I even have a Special DiS Guest of Honor staying with me (better clean the house and tidy the spare room at some point, HAH).
Would love to see how someone could capture his style, will look forward to a report!
I have a hangover from the wine, and a lactover from the cheese.
Yes, I just invented lactover
It's pretty good. It melts the cheese and then you eat the cheese.
My cousin hired it (!) from the local cheese shop.
cheese shop cheese lamp.
This type of behaviour is to be commended. And I do feel your pain, every time we do a Raclette, the cheese and requisite amounts of wine to stop it setting in your stomach absolutely do me. Always worth it though.
I tried to give up melted cheese for lent once. Lasted 3 days.
i don't know how much they cost but my god it was awesome. you can move the cheese closer and further from the lamp as necessary to change the flow speed
I'm like, horny because of that post
'you can move the cheese closer and further from the lamp as necessary to change the flow speed'
Then you have a libido of stone.
although I've got a bunch of stuff I need to save for so I probably won't be spending that much this month.
Seeing Sheeps at Soho Theater tonight, kind of feel like I've mostly just done comedy lately but they're only in town for week so it seemed worth it.
Lots of Bulleit, steak then throwing up last night.
Should probably not go out on a Wednesday night.
HI EVERYONE, LOVE YOU DISSERS XX
Just got a call booking me for another contract law seminar- soon i'll be giving up the day job and just doing the speaking thing, so much more fun! Ohhh I wonder what topic to speak on this time, EXCITING.
In sad news, I don't much care for what I'm wearing today and I'm a bit sleepy.
(anyone who can work out this actually means wins a patronising pat on the head)
And I've done way more today than I'd planned. I feel like I'm winning.
I'm sure you smell bad every day
Also my wee brother is 25 today which I guess makes him a proper grownup. Which makes me an older grownup. Weird stuff.
Feeling old - check
Taxes to do - check
whiterussian loses today!
Got a lot of good stuff coming up over the next few weeks though, thank god
