It's well humid today. I went outside and my glasses kept steaming up.
What's everyone doing today?
getting a bit worried this is the beginning of a nervous breakdown.
Going to B&Q today and The Producers later.
working today and the streets are mega quiet because of the upcoming protests. So just sort of kicking around the bookshop. Eh.
brb gonna go find a first folio for the roof
So going to go to the gym after lunch. Not much else planned. Might start practicing for a nerdy card game tournament next month. Might not.
often just leaves the flat without his keys and the door on the latch. What does he expect me to do if I go out, just leave it unlocked? I left the flat last night to do my washing and when I came back forgot to put it back on the latch so at 4am I wake up to the sound of him and his mates knocking. Couldn't be arsed getting up as I hear him already downstairs getting the security guard and two minutes later they're in. Saw on Facebook this morning a video of them sat outside the door with the caption barleysugar wake up please and my flatmate says can you put this on Facebook and tag barleysugar in it, i.e. this is his fault, not mine for being unable to do something as simple as taking my keys out when I leave the flat.
'take your key with you cunt' and left them to it
for being unable to have a cross word with him. Cos I'm weak. His fucking shit habits make me hate him and myself. Cunt.
don't think it's unreasonable for you to say 'mate i'm not going to be awake at 4 just to let you in, take your key with you when you go out'
if he's got a problem with that he's a cunt, even more so than he comes across already - don't understand why you'd leave the house without a key.
would outweigh the annoyance. No point. I hate life.
my only plan for the day
Tried my best but just wasnt happening today, maybe too much having to boogie 3 days in a row. Ah well, might stay for the rest of the day and see the pros and go to the BBQ but feel like a wee cry.
absolutely devastated. there's always next time, and i'm sure then you'll be more comfortable with things, and yourself, because you'll be familiar with the stages of the competition and the sort of flair the judges are looking out for.
and it looked fixed to me mate. You were definitely the best.
and not always, dare I say, open to new ideas and styles and a bit set in their ways. Don't get too hung up on getting their approval. Cut your own path
really difficult because i've already assigned value to all of my belongings even though i have no intention of reading half of the books i own and will probably never get round to putting magazines on ebay etc.
we have so much food including two curries, £70 worth of booze, bbq stuff, a projector for the wall, 100 nos balloons + more. gonna start drinking in a minute.
hoping to do some illegal crimes
I am peace-loving
after smashing the dance final last night and taking first place. Only 5 competing, but a win is a win
Are you going to that fragment festival thing? Coz that's what I'm doing.
yeah, I'm aiming to get there in in time for Hot Shorts. I'll wave at you if I see you.
My CV is an absolute joke cos I've barely worked. No point even applying for jobs cos I don't know how to explain it other than the fact I'm a workshy cunt.
i'm now about to have a lovely pizza and watch SATC or something
meant to be going to a birthday party tonight but idk
For avoiding a hangover, good work! I threw a strop last night because I couldn't find my ipad, and I didn't feel my (long suffering) boyfriend was doing enough to help me find it, so to make a point I threw myself onto the bed in dramatic fashion, thought 'mmmm this is comfy' and then woke up this morning. Hangover avoidance at its best!
It was under the bed btw.
I don't know if that's better or worse.
I forgot my ipad at my parents' house in Norway ;(
might make some lunch and have a beer
starting to doubt you are a real human
A ROLLERCOASTER OF EMOTION AND HAPPINESS.
So far going well
Slept in. Made pancakes (leftover chilli with Emmental then bananas with nutella). Then we went to a cat rescue centre and played with some cats. Then we went into town and both felt a bit ill so I'm just chilling out in a pub listening to some cello music and having an extra white vedett. Going kayaking tomorrow.
my brother has signed our father's day card with his full name
can't wait for the bants tomorrow
wouldn't do that on father's day though
with "love from grandma" is embarrassingly high. (my name is graham)
slept for 13 hours. woke up and went into town to do my usual katsu and teriyaki mixed bento. Usually go and eat it in the castle grounds, or by the river, but today I had some stuff to do in town after and there was a table outside the minimal seating restaurant so I sat there. Started eating and then a lady with three children asked if I would mind if they sat there, obviously I said that was fine. Noticed there were 4 of them and only 3 seats and thought it would be pretty weird for one of them to have to stand while I sat with this random family. So I got my stuff together and shuffled off. couldnt help feel this is symbolic of the place of over 30 singletons in our society. worst of all I left my bottle of coke behind which massively impacted on my enjoyment of the meal. went home and slept for a further 3 hours. probably should have got some fathers day stuff sorted but there is always tomorrow
Chop it up into paragraphs
It was a really poignant post.
TTF (the poster, not the Scottish 90s rave band)- it's amazing how mundane interactions like that can really affect you but honestly, don't make it into some kimd.of symbol as to where you are in your life just now, it's pointless and unfair on yourself. You're a good one, just keep.on keeping on and you will be great. (that family probably envied you your lovely chilled peaceful solitude! Grass*green) :) x
Don't believe me Joe Swash
Hey, hey, hey, oh!
I have been at the park with the dog and then hanging out with my noisy as fuck nephews.
Got this charity ball thing tonight, which I've decided I am now looking forward to.
At the Hilton and the fire alarm went off and they had to wrap me in foil :(
Why wrap you in foil?
hoping to be finished in time for the last tram home. printing it off tomorrow :-D
what's it on?
My groupon beer52 thing came this more, so just supping through those, i thnk, currently drinking hipster ale.
bad case of the feeeeels urgh
took it to a garage yesterday to get a health check for the prospective buyer - all good.
drove gently into town today and two warning lights come up on the dash and haven't gone off. got back home and notice a fucking great big nail in one of the rear tyres. may not even be connected. have cancelled the sale and will now have to pour loads of money into the car to get it ready to sell.
give me a fucking drink
like a boss
what's everyone else doing tonight?
is hilariously Brentesque
i wonder how long that took
doing some work
I just want to go home to eat biscuits and drink decaf tea in bed and maybe watch a sitcom.I'm sat on my own in a bar instead :(
Also just listened to loads of old bands I associate to some extent with MTV2 (RIP) as a young adolescent. Surprised by how melancholy I've become.
Can somebody please come and hold me close?!
Chances are it's not so bad though bro. What happened?
Although I just got a text from a customer we had at the table thanking us for a great night out, maybe it's all ok.
Is the worst BUT it sounds like you've gotten away with it! We had some kerfuffle the last time a supplier took us out but they were like 'um, we were shitfaced and what do you expect when £500 goes behind the bar' 👍🍻 you know these guys well?!
went to the union last night, in which the cheese night which stopped last year had a 'reunion' featuring all the people that ever djed it performing a b2b.
bumped into people that had travelled from around the country (and, apparently, one person that flew in from australia!!!!!) for it
then i came home from the club early to have a cry and throw stuff around my room like a spoilt little baby lollllllllll
that can fuck off
hope so cause otherwise you'll probably have bled to death
And the boss has given me the wrong keys. Argh ffs
Gonna go home and make curry
How's Douche apart from falling victim to It bosses classic gaffe?
just had a kip and sweated out about 2 litres of beer toxins. Feel pretty fresh now!
Is THE look on a Sunday. Just made bacon and egg muffins. The cat's in a cuddly mood. Might listen to some Kate Bush.
The spare room/ office/ man cave is where we're storing stuff we've packed ready to move next week, and there is now only a narrow route of escape because of all the stuff.
I'd imagine it's very difficult to de-crumb an egg without de-meating it too.
So there was just an egg
for shame, people
most people like sun
Didn't really enjoy it, more updates to follow
the noodles seemed softer than usual. I think the King size fucks up the ratio.
when not even dweeby indie music internet geeks are online on a sunday afternoon?
so what are YOU up to atm barleysugar, tell me an anecdote or something, idk
is it because people just post their boring aimless remarks straight to twitter instead these days
maybe i'll set up something to auto-post all of my tweets to the daily thread on here
mine would just say "lying in bed watching some show"
feel really shit
will get over it eventually
sorry to hear that. yeah, you will get over it, but it does fucking suck at the time regardless. hope you're ok like all things considered and that you feel better soon xxx
I think I'm going to be ok, definitely in a better place to deal with this than I was last time I got dumped. there were already difficulties - I just thought he might be more willing to try and put more effort in. oh well, at least I can see some benefits even if the losses hurt like hell now.
You know I'm always down for that sort of thing!
but I could always cut it a bit short...
(we must be due another Wethercrawl soon too)
so one night of excess can't hurt! if you're free the Saturday after next that would be a good time (mainly cos i was supposed to go to Leeds that weekend to see him. if anyone wants train tickets from London to Leeds on the 3rd/5th July let me know...)
just message me on fb on whatever :)
imagine dumping pervo! guy's a pure numpty
Hope you're OK. He's a diddy x
I'm getting there. bit of Countdown (of course) and going for a run have taken my mind off things a bit!
MARLON: There there. Something that always helps me is watching those old adverts for ringtone companies like Jamster and whatnot in super slo-mo in a dark-en-ed room.
ROSCOE: How does that help Marlon?
MARLON: It has helped me out of almost every grind I've ever had Roscoe. The sound, when enslowned down to the point that it is a sequence of one purest finest singular grain of information following to the next purest finest singular grain of information... Roscoe, the single beats that compose the sounds... they bleed into the brain, they reassemble over the next few months, a reunion of these minute fragments within the new environment within the mind. Roscoe, they tell me things. Valuable things.
ROSCOE: Mate, that's not a standard occurrence. But we wish you the best and that the future brings you more good things.
MARLON: Who we even talkin' to?
MARLON: You don't gots ta tell me, I've *seen* your Internet history on the Amiga!
thank you, I'm honoured!
Played Talisman today. Won with the monk, obvs. Did lose my phone though arghhh. R.I.P mate.
how is it sunday night already btw
carl barat's current look
kind of obsessed with julian casablanca's hair as well
oh and i just bought two books (online):
'ban en banlieue' by bhanu kapil
'post-exoticism in ten lessons, lesson eleven' by antoine volodine
is that a confederate flag?
i think it's at a festival in south africa, so you'd hope not. unless "the libs" have a new strategy for cracking white america...
i wasn't going to bring it up, and hoped you'd have the same level of maturity. hmmph
a behind the scenes look at some fyds/jordan late night banter
jordan: Are you still in leicester?
me: yep. you up to something tonight?
jordan: I'm thinking of seeing her name is calla on the third.
me: i'm not around that long :( only for another week
me: come over now. i'm at an awful party; no banter
jordan: bone a fit bitch
me: that's the dream. i said i need to get some booze and now i'm sat on a bollard listening to joyce manor
jordan: just had dinner with me missus and my parents
Not sure if I'm coming down with something, or I've overeaten. Did loads of sausage and mash with veg, drank beers.
seems to have done the trick for now
Four tournaments in a row, unbelievable m8
ugh, worst fathers day ever, I ended up having a complete teenage tantrum over something minor my mum did and now I feel pretty bad. think we need family therapy or something or I'm always going to have these inappropriate outbursts
Because I've spotted a place that looks much nicer and has an actual bar in the back garden.
deeply deeply melancholic being sat here by myself all day basically working myself up to be as sad as possible about leaving my squad for eternity in a few days :'''''(
