So very nearly the weekend.
Pub tonight after band practice. There's a raffle for a festival ticket and you get one entry with each pint you buy. Probably going to get so drunk that I don't even realise if I've won or not.
Been at least a year since I've seen the ol' Moggers, maybe more.
seeing them next Thursday :)
Venue right beside my house, was home two minutes after the gig. Their set was great, loads of old and obscure stuff balanced out with new tracks. 'My Father My King' live is going down as one of my favourite gig moments ever I think.
Um. That's it.
Just waiting for the contract to be emailed through today and then it's time to tell a heavily pregnant workaholic who's mere days away from going on maternity leave that, actually, I won't be here to cover your work after all, whoops!! #sorrynotsorry
The real challenge is going to be getting through that conversation without grinning like a loon.
You should see my nipples.
But I'll take it.
I had to resign to my heavily pregnant boss who's about to go on maternity next week too ha. Sort of feels good to know the department is going to go into meltdown once I'm gone (along with the two other guys who I know are about to resign...)
They're still reeling from that.
I know three other people with job offers and two more who are likely to leave. And those are just the ones I know about - out of fifteen people.
Bedlam. Good luck with yours! Remember to watch out for that crazy pregnancy strength. Try to have a solid object between you and her when you break the news. Balls of your feet. Duck and weave.
Never mind. Well done for surviving!
which was quite nice and I wasn't expecting it. but then again I guess she knows she won't be here to deal with the fallout so she probably doesn't care. just bank on that I guess!
almost 50% of my team will have resigned in under 2 months by the end of June. eep.
Mine is so, so invested in her work (on several levels) that I cannot see this going well.
I laughed a bit too hard.
Morning all, gonna be heading to Hyde Park this evening for Beck and The Strokes. I'm sure I'm not alone in this.
future islands are on at 5:30 and i normally work til 5:30 so i got up an hour early this morning to get to work an hour early to leave an hour early to see them.
got to work about 20 minutes earlier than usual. it's really not good value for money
but most were the fact that when i get up early my guts get really angry with me for some reason
rather than cycle because of the gig. Got up 20 minutes earlier than usual. Fuck this, should've got the bus.
My left quad is spasming - that's quite annoying.
Going to yoga this evening for the first time to start addressing my ridiculous lack of flexibility.
My left quad is FINE but my right quad is spasming because I did barbell lunges with 1. insufficient warmup and 2. too much weight for the level of reps. I guess this tells me how I distribute my weight on my supposedly perfectly tuned lunge/squat dynamic. I would have been fine if i'd gone to my yoga class afterwards but I had to go back to the office to deal with some fucking cretin being a cretin. Had to go down the stairs hopping/ sideways this morning. Going for a run in an hour or two in an attempt to loosen it off. I have to look elegant in black tie tonight and I'm currently walking like I have a widget up my arse.
I mainly get shoulder spasms, so this is new.
actually so excited for him. Having a mare about who to give my spare ticket though (this isn't an opening)
Seems to be fun Beck as apposed to Scientology* Beck
Watched Insidious with my tin lid last night. Pretty creepy at times. Enjoyed it.
Not sure about tonight. Maybe hanging out with ma housie.
Did we hear from meow yesterday? Hope she's doing ok.
It's a London thing.
Also acceptable would be saucepan lid. As in "you wouldn't facking believe the language my saucepan came out with last night."
Why did some people in London develop Rhyming Slang or why did I watch Insidious?
being thick sorry
hideous disablist rhyming slang (in glasgow at least).
I can't bother coming back to this to explain later / I will forget so tin lid = flid= person with limb malformatoins as a result of getting thalidomide in utero but also used as an unsult about disability generally.
Glasgow slang is really fucking cruel.
good day DiS
Then remembered that I'm not really into comics, so didn't.
got deeked for a job at sellafield which is a shame.
should be well fun (if I make it).
I'm doing a kind of hop/sideways shuffle like a crab and look like I've got something in my pants. I wonder what I have in the office that I could use in place of a foam roller.
Had my haircut. Feel like shit, hoping I feel better for tomorrow.
The mother in law is over visiting from the states (so I am staying with my Mum)
Not sure what I'm doing tonight, resting up mainly.
seems to be ok other than the obvious being in massive pain and it generally being horrible.
If you're reading this meow:
BEST WISHES xxxx
was it a totally unprovoked attack? only asking cos I was once assaulted in Old Street completely unprovoked, had to have my front tooth pushed back into my head by a dentist, was noooo fun.
anyway I really hope you get better soon meow! x
on her lunch break :(
people are cunts.
I'm kind of ok! Keep having moments of tears and sadness but it's mainly from pain frustration and boredom. My eye is very sensitive to the light so I'm feeling sick and dizzy a lot. I have no feeling on the left side of my face and my teeth feel all right and v horrible!
It was an unprovoked attack on my lunch break :( hard to get in touch with police but think it's being dealt with (who knows)
Thanks so much for all the love xxxxxxxxx
Not sure about it. Should have just walked to cafe. Day 1 of my dance compo today, starts at about 3 so going to have a bath now to get my joints ready for some groovy Leg Bop. Not so confident of placing but I will give it my all. I am dancing to Africa by Toto.
Would be useful for you to combine your passion for AJing with LBing!
i love coffee so much
just had some grumpy mule somethingorother, well nice
So much coffee imbibing. These reports will practically do themselves!
Gonna have my next coffee in 19 minutes.
I've drunk too much and now my eye is going mental
Get it off your chest.
Either here or in its own thread.
I need to be firmer with people in future.
Enjoy your relationship with all those conditions yer fanny!
Seriously, seriously doomed.
'No labels' = code for 'if you dont marry me I'll break down in the middle of the office and stab you'. Enjoy the rest of your life.
A girl once kissed me but didnt like me boo hoo and now I'm so sad boo hoo.
So if she finds out what I'm ACTUALLY like, I'm probably fired
Might fake my own death!
people struggle with things every day, it happens, sorry we can't all be cunts about it like you
Need someone to replace the 'rizla skinned emo victim' in my life.
Been savaged this morning by colleagues all congregating around my desk squealing about what they're wearing to some shit retirement party. A good hour later theres still a debate raging about what shoes will be most appropriate and if a denim jacket can be worn with a maxi dress. Probably going to have an aneurysm.
how'd you go about getting someone at work to stop coming and whining/talking/going on at you?
got this woman who seems to have latched onto me...I am not good at being blunt or rude but she is doing me in. i've started just saying hmm,mmm and typing whilst not looking at her
I am also really bad at being rude but I find just don't comment on whatever they're saying works in the end. I supervise this person occasionally and instead I talk about fun things, not what she wants to moan about, and I find that helps.
Think I need to buy some new trousers
It's near Elgin isn't it?
scottish album of the year awards last night and my friend won and there was so much dancing and booze. this is going to be a very long day, plz send help.
and possibly seeing Weyes Blood/Kevin Morby at The Lexington.
not bad for a school night. Still, went to bed a bit bummed out (i think i need to stop drinking in the week, however light) and woke up with the hump still.
Now listening to OK Computer for the first time in ageeeeeeeeeees. Still makes my hair stand on edge (in a good way).
My work leaving drinks tonight and then off to Body & Soul festival for the weekend tomorrow, yay!
Still v jealous about Mogwai but I'm moving to Scotland soon so hopefully loads more chances to see them.
you can see them most nights hanging out/ doing impromptu stuff in various bars in Glasgow.
I'm still trying for a B&S ticket so I can see Super Furry Animals. Fingers still firmly crossed.
i've got an interview later at a school i really like the look of
wish me luck please
Knock 'em dead.
Nothing to report. Hope you're all well.
And he replied with "Yes, correct." What do I do?
So which one you fucking idiot?
Only with a bit more "Just making sure" and smiley faces, crisis averted
Can't decide whether to pop into work or not, I'm thinking maybe or not!
I literally had that Eve & Gwen Stefani song playing in my head. What kind of weird dreams could I have had that could explain that!?
Why is it back in our heads?
i don't want to hear about other people doing well right now
And the boss has just fucked off home early unannounced and doesn't work Fridays.
FFS. First thing Monday morning.
can't stop laughing about it
