Really tired. Our new blackout curtains are horrible but they do the job.
Spin tonight. Again.
nothing to report. today can go away. might have a beer after work.
Lower back is aching a lot, not helped by a packed Northern Line carriage. Ate a Sainsbags crispy duck for dinner last night - 7/10, would eat again.
so I'd be inclined to agree
Just had a Weetabix vanilla drink. Was fucking delicious, far too nice not to be ridiculously unhealthy no matter what they've put on the packaging. But it's managed to make me feel halfway human so bd to that.
I'm sort of glad the weather's weird while I'm in work.
clearly nto in any way healthy though.
can't bring myself to try one EVEN THOUGH i love for goodness shakes which are prob the same
Don't really like Weetabix. Should I try?
think I got on pretty well with everyone despite how awkward they can be. I brought the lols. The house/room/everything is lovely and I really want it so fingers crossed.
My other 3 flatmates are freaking out and panicking, saying we should get a flat together (I'd end up doing all the leg work for that)
Either way, I have to get out asap.
and can use the human toilet. It's heaven.
for me to have for breakfast as I apparently showed interest in their culture (I think I mentioned they had a cool accent a few weeks ago) So going to have to eat that soon as they keep emailing me every 5 mins (minutes) if I enjoyed it...looks and smells horrible and people keep giving me the stank eye, why does this happen to me :(
did you enjoy it?
Had been in the bin but the guide dog in the office started snarling at the bin so had to get rid of it and couldn't flush it as we have one of those special toilets here which has a grating over it so cant flush no perishables/difficult perishables down it. Just trying to type the email to the person now but worries they will see the sandwich outside :/
that's quite a pickle
Been really shy at work lately and now this is going to make me over-shy.
I think those are either known as 'drains' or 'urinals', depending on location. :-/
i'm in a super good mood due to being still half cut and the sun being out, also because two people were really cool last night to mke and my pal, just started a thread about it.
Went to see blur at the barrowlands last night and it was fucking immense, left absolutely soaking (beer/sweat, standard barras make up) and with a massive smile on my face.
i kept check out for you in case you were there. it really really was fucking brilliant, wasn't it? A bit of a lull in the middle when they played a bunch of new stuff, but the double encore clinched it.
for me it really kicked off when they played beetlebum, absolutely brilliant.
i think their new stuff sounded really good but not a patch on earlier stuff
they played there's no other way right at the start, and then didn't return there 'til beetlebum. and Ong Ong at the end fits in perfeclty, as does I Broadcast. The other stuff is good though.
also you should've said hello, i was pretty fucked by the end so hopefully this wasn't when you spotted me
i was soaking by the time i left.
were you wearing a white tshirt with grey/black hoops?
and had a fred perry shirt on, good job you didn't acost my doppelgänger :D
They're not in the dishwasher.
They're not in the sink.
WHERE'S MY FUCKING MUG, I NEED A COFFEE.
I'm finally gonna give some piano teachers a ring tonight and get this shit booked. Also, going to try and stop smoking again as I've been puffing everyday for about a month now out of nowhere.
So tempted to blow 80 quid though and get a Saturday ticket for Download this weekend. The idea of Faith No More and Marilyn Manson back to back is oddly alluring.
Super Furry Animals are playing next weekend and I might have to drop €140 on a ticket for the festival they're at. (There's other good bands on, I wouldn't be blowing it just to see them.)
Festival season is a killer.
Looking forward to that. Hope SFA aren't clashing with Flight Facilities.
keep drinking more than I expect to (any amount really)
that is all
I want to blow money on going to a festival next weekend. It looks like the festival is going to sell out though. If only payday was sooner.
Can't wait to play football tonight. Hopefully I don't get too clattered 'cos my ribs are still sore after Primavera.
no hills! fuck you, warno, swoon retracted.
Ely is on a hill you bellend. Fucking Alpe d'huez almost.
Also, yeah no hills, but the wind?? THERE IS NOTHING TO STOP THE WIND. ONLY MILES AND MILES OF BLEAK NOTHINGNESS.
if you can also promise to get a puncture then fine
hope to be done in an hour and 20.
Think my record is an hour and 10, but I haven't tried since last autumn...
It was brutal. And I got a puncture.
was absolutely freezing. take a jacket!
I've got about 20 quid to last me until the end of the month and I've only just remembered it's fathers day in a couple of weeks. Fuck.
I like how cheery it is on here today though. Warms my cockles it does.
I am seriously in the bad books at this stage after forgetting my Dad's 60th at the start of the year.
one word: potatoes
I think he's got plenty in though at the minute.
have a cyst on my eye lid. too difficult to remove, so it's there permanently until it can get it's own passport and then we can divorce.
blur last night were astonishing. one of the best gigs i've ever been to.
weed and zwiyec hangover urghhhhh
holly herndon tonight tho *rave klaxon*
listening to katie dey over and over again (seriously so good): http://katiedey.bandcamp.com/album/asdfasdf
played tennis last night for the first time in about five years and I ache in placed I didn't even know existed. really fancy a beer.
is the greatest cereal of all time
the thing literally took me about half an hour to knock together as well. maybe i should try and actually invest some time in this writing thing???
sorry guys, i have no internet presence. really should get a blog for situations like these, huh?
well done : )
I keep meaning to enter one of those but I like to waffle too much.
Had a really good sunbathe in the scorching old vitamin d at lunchtime, only just got back to the office and my skin is so tingly. Might sack off the gym tonight to sit in the sun instead.
After a mental couple of weeks in work, today has been a much needed calm one.
pure 20 degrees in me garden. not many clouds either.
just made a quinoa salad which was alright. this diet gets harder each day, i might ring the hospital up for tips because i'm nowhere near getting my 2 portions of protein (100g servings of meat/fish) per day.
it's gorgeous in glasgow the now.
going to sit in the park after work.
only to find I'd actually been scheduled for an early morning meeting so I ran back home to take it from there. Really should keep my blackberry charged.
Went shopping last night for some new trainers, I kind of want them to be casualish like vans but more heel/arch support. Went to footlocker but it was far too busy so I figured I'd order them online. I'm terrible at shopping tbf.
booked flights to glasgow
bad news: booked the wrong time on return so it's fly at 6.45am or pay £40 to change to later flight. ARGGH
You're a monster. Worse than me.
at a quarter of the journey time.
getting there an hour in advance security and all that, I find it's about 3- 3.5 hours all in to fly and 4.5- 5 hours on train.
booked wrong dates for Germany trip in August too. think I must be mad wi' it
employing the services of a travel agent may be worth future consideration
as soon as you realise and say it was a computer glitch/ problem with usability of their booking system they might take sympathy. Or say you are blind, or simple or something.
My mum once accidentally committed herself to staying for something like a year and a week in a hotel because she must have nudged the drop down menu for the month or year when setting the date parameters. It was one of those things where you pay in advance and it's a better deal but it's non refundable. So she was stuck with a 5 figure credit card bill and a very long hotel stay she didn't want.
It was awful, because she had been so proud of herself, she came running through to me like GO ME AND TECHNOLOGY, I'VE JUST BOOKED ME AND YOUR FATHER'S TRIP ONLINE. She printed out the confirmation email and handed it to me so proudly. it was not good having to break the news to her. She is one of those totally law abiding and 'a rule is a rule' ex teacher types, and she was convinced that she had no remedy. I am not cut from that same cloth and phoned up and said 'daft mum, half batty, should not be left in charge of technology, oh and by the way, your booking system is a pile of wank and highly fallible and your rules regarding genuine error rectification are possibly challengeable on the grounds of the consumer legislation and certainly contrary to the principles of natural justice.
i'm gonna head to a beer garden after work
i might have one
look out world
Had a promotion interview today. Fucked it right up. Like really embarrassed about how dumb I must have seemed. Don't think I'm stupid I just think in slow motion so flounder in real time. Really want to leave now.
