just tired I guess
They like vodka apparently
you're like, trotsky or something.
So unprepared. Slihlghtly shitting it.
So much so that i'll be donning the old sound tech polo shirt and mucking in with my techs tonight, not gonna be finished today till about 6am tomorrow morn!
Been a fucking long time since i had to do one of these shifts!
But I feel fairly spritely this morning.
Saw my best mate from school yday evening and asked him to be my best man. Fun times.
Oh how my very eyes sting.
I didn't drink any drinking wine last night. I did drink single drinking beer on my way home but that's not going to give me a hangover. The drinking drinks I drink tonight whilst watching Faith No More very well might though. Might slap myself up a cheeky WFH tomorrow.
I've got a cold.
Saw Beck last night and he was amazing. Went out afterwards, met one of my mates and fell home around half-one. Up at half-six.
Really don't want to be here and am job-hunting while I'm here today. Mogwai tonight, which isn't helping as I'm just waiting to get out of here.
not seen beck in years, wish he'd fucking come up here.

Can I have a job in your firm L-P?
Got the fucking job, didn't I, so I'm currently the smuggest motherfucker on the planet.
Now to engineer my exit from this peepee soaked heck hole as soon as humanly possible.
you still gonna be in cambridge?
More or less, yeah, just a couple of stops down the Kings Cross line. Not moving though.
Can you get us cheap tickets?
walk around the office with your bum out for a bit
Might you get some garden leave or somesuch?
Got a pretty hefty notice period, but I have Plans for negotiating it down. Even if I have to do the lot, fuck 'em, 9-5 and full lunch hour and they can bloody well fire me if they don't like it.
to come for a leaving drink on Friday... ten seconds before the MD sent round an email telling everyone a well-liked colleague was being made redundant.
The awkwardness. The awkwardness.
Today is kinda my Friday, though I am WFH on Friday (but only til 3pm).
kinda your friday?!
I'm on leave tomorrow and then WFH on Friday. WFH isn't toooo strenuous so :)
me walking TOO SLOWLY*
*we were waiting for some friends.
I was going to refer to the secret exit from the station as the secret Maccabees sub-exit, but I was in fear of PFOTI (people from outside the internet)
My housemates woke up at 7 and were slamming around for ages so I got up two hours earlier than I had to. Now here I am.
They're moving out really soon #bliss
found a job I finally want to do. spent all night re-jigging my cv to make it look like I'm good at the things they want (I am tbf) woke up this morning really excited. just went to send it there and they've got a SORRY THIS POSITION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE notice up.
I really needed that job.
Recently taken up dancing again so booked myself into a few semi-pro adult compos for Thursday and Friday, I am going to be so rusty so not planning on placing in them but you never know!
but they just threw me straight in the deep end and I have no idea about processes argh.
And i've had to let them know that I can't work tomorrow because I'm going to Hyye Park.
got band practice tonight in brockley. Anyone rehearsed there? Why is rehearsing so expensive.
so i'm using her cup in her honor. It's what she would've wanted.
bet she was drinking with that mug when she crashed.*
*she's okay just has minor whiplash.
the recruitment lady that put me here.
Oh forgot to mention I caught up with ****** yesterday and she said you were getting on really well. She said she knows it's pretty manic at the moment but she's confident you're going to get into the swing of things x
So i couldn't be more wrong - yay!
it was so good.
A container near the docks that had no heating and one dim lightbulb for illumination. More expensive than our unreal practice space that we have now. Don't miss it one bit.
My ankle is sore after football and I haven't got much work to do.
I am booked on a training course at a brewery tomorrow though.
flatmate's birthday last night, got a bit messy
feel like i need a nap already
have got loads of stuff to move and take downstairs too
I've been here since before 8 necking coffee.
Might need to get out a loan. Shazzzzzzbut
kinda worried now.
also, wrote this across various toilet trips and breaks. http://www.sheeldz.co.uk/blog/2015/6/17/shenmue-iii read it?
that was a great read! Bit confused by the last paragraph though, did you write it before realizing there's going to be a PC release too?
Is writing in a cover letter that it would be amazing to work there (it would) be too gushing?
Seen this job I really want but trying not to sound too desoerate...tricky balance
back from honeymoon. This is my Monday. Read all my emails already, now just trying to put off doing any actual work.
Hope all the DiS people who came to my wedding are recovering from their drunken injuries now.
I note that you've done the whole `going on honeymoon straight after the wedding` thing that seems to be dreadfully out of vogue now. Don't see the point in not going straight after, but many do it seems...
then went the day after. It would be really depressing to just have come straight back to work on the Monday!
we went to every single one of their craft breweries I think. And saw Drake do a hometown show, which was excellent.
I'd recommend going here, we never wanted to leave it: http://bellwoodsbrewery.com/
so very, very envious
very glad it was ace
(and I've *just* about recovered)
i'm on my lunch break, first day of my work placement! Pretty good. Celebrating with a chocolate mousse for pudding.
BUT they did ring me up to say they'd liked me and it was between me and one other candidate (who had more relevant experience). And they said there were going to be a couple more positions coming up that they'd like me to apply for. Which is good, right? Not great, but...good.
see yesterday's thread for details of Ferrero rocher breast pocket stainage...
that we feel are more relevant to your experience?
I'm sick of them.
