whats happening you crazy kids you?
I'm working 'til 16:45 then it's straight to the pub as one of our mates is finally home from Canada. Heading to a party after that so I am going to be one hungover goose tomorrow morning.
how has your Jamon game been post-primavera?
That's not even jamón ibérico de bellota!
I went to the emo show last night to watch Prawn play the hits. blooming loud for a bunch or crybabies. Hindsights were also thoroughly enjoyable. being a hometown show they brought their kids with them so wisely we went to the back to avoid the activities best saved for ocean coastlines.
WFH today so I've already blasted through an hour of work. No evening plans - looking forward to a quiet night in with the TV
Have a watch of Glasonbury later. Super Furry Animals, Run The Jewels and Hot Chip are all on.
Oooh, and so is Florence + The Machine. Maybe don't do that.
but thoroughly disappointed with their new album. I like her when she's wailing (sentence which requires context...)
I'm going to wait until tomorrow night and watch Kanye. Hopefully he's not shit.
really need to get up. Not least because I'm having breakfast delivered to my desk at 9 and I don't want it to go cold and flaccid. With that thought in mind *falls out the side of the bed*
What are you having delivered??
I did that thing yday where you smugly dismount your bike. Turns out I'm not so smooth in my new cleats, culminating in skidding forwards like bambi on ice, slowly falling back while still holding onto my handles until my arse hit the ground, legs akimbo. Obviously right in the middle of Brixton.
there was a blunder.
It was supposed to be roll, 2 x square sausage, tattie scone and brown sauce. instead I got roll, 1 x square sausage (which did not fill the roll, so it was basically like eating a dry roll for half of the experience) no tattie scone and a scraping of red sauce. Fucking travesty. it's the lad's last day in the department so I've gone lightly on him.
That's a proper Friday morning roll!!
had they actually got my order right. Hmph.
sounds like a thoroughly deserved sacking
He's just moving department for his final rotation as a trainee, but HIS CARD IS MARKED.
in our toilet is now fully functioning finally after its installation two weeks ago. And a new development; they have now installed 12 coat hooks in the toilet. It is one unisex toilet in a tiny room, with one sink and one dyson airblade, and now the twelve coat hooks. The NHS baffles me sometimes.
It is very hot in the office today, but the thought of a few cold ones in a beer garden after work is keeping me going.
Got an important meeting at 10. Preparing for it with a little blast of Kisstory. Right now it's U Sure Do by Strike.
Got friends round for dinner tonight. Need to do loads on the house tomorrow but it's going to be sunny so might just go into Cambridge and sit around in the botanic gardens.
someone mentioned doughnuts.
gonna get some coffee and hope it does some kind of filling-up job
strawberries from my bag are of a high standard.
I could do with a bit of that this mroning. Feeling sleepy and need some nostaligic, trashy r&b
currently: NOW THAT WE FOUND LOVE WHAT ARE WE GONNA DOOOOO
greatest song of all time, bar none.
that, Mo Money Mo Problems, Push The Feeling On...
Love a bit of kisstory on a Saturday Morning, cleaning up the gaff after the standard Friday party.
but phone's away being repaired so couldn't use strava.
a pal of mine has just moved to America and her new commute is along a disused FLAT railway track which has been turned into a bike path and she's now averaging 30km/h on her ride, wtaaaaf
that is the dream commute basically
As running isn't working for me and I need some regular exercise. Could quite easily cycle to Watlington and get the train from there. Bit of a pain in the arse for packing spare clothes etc but should be doable.
and we'll take it from there
more reliable than the train (and probably faster)
i get to cycle every day, it'd be about 7 miles each way
do i want to lock my bike up all day
won't save me any money
maybe i'll just start doing the full 15 miles to work, hmmmm
please, please, please let today go quickly.
Going to XOYO tonight for Evian Christ and the Boxed lot. Should be fun if not horrifically rammed as always.
Just bought a triple shot coffee by accident. Probs gonna have a panic attack now.
Could somebody please send me a breakfast roll?
Found out that my friend/colleague, who's part of a diversity initiative for our extremely white, male, middle class, Oxbridge-educated profession, has been getting proper racial abuse by anonymous email because of it.
What the actual fuck.
Can it rally not be traced? It's in everyone's interests in your line of work to have that kind of nonsense investigated and stamped out.
Imaging going to all that trouble to write racial slurs at someone. Fucking disgusting.
such an awful night's sleep. Why is hayfever so fucking bad this year? Swear it's been going since about February.
But the last month has just been rough.
face FULL of pollen
knew I should have sat in my nice a/c car and just killed the planet a bit
stupid bug eater
With a colleague.
Might just take the coffee machine into the loos and hide there all day. Can't face this.
Hidden all my clothes so might have to go to it in my take away uniform which is quite smart but does have a picture of a chicken on it, going to have a good look for my suit and shirt as really would rather wear that. Will be doing the lates this weekend and during my free time working on my Mandarin
Would mean me having to sneak in and out every day and get back up the road for my night shift and honestly I dont have the energy, its a shame as I honestly hand on heart believe I would have maybe made at least one friend there but hey ho back to the DraBo (drawing board)
they are £30 and I don't know anyone else who listens to her :/
thanks for nothing as always DiS
I'm tired. What's everyone up to this weekend? I have no plans and am home alone. Box of wine being delivered tomorrow morning.
Hayfever is a proper cunt.
About to drop my 4th coffee.
pretty happy it's almost the weekend. got the finishing touches to put on these fucking tenders and that's me. might leave work sharp today.
no real plans this weekend, might go see slow west.
will definitely have some wine tonight.
might buy some clothes, payday innit.
Having serious second thoughts about that purchase.
Also my swanky new Ted Baker shoes have cut up my feet to absolute FUCK.
I'm not posting photos of my cut up feet, you massive pervert.
But separately. No idea what the photo's trying to show.
link to the shoes on ted baker and link to wherever you bought the shirt from
...yeah, I'm returning it.
but i can barley see that, is it see through?!
also didn't realise it was yr man from the beta band who'd directed it
what you going to buy LP?
i bought some new jeans, a new blazer and a pocket square this week, all of which i 100% didn't need
and am still on the lookout for a leather jacket, any suggestions?!
always good to buy blazers/pocket sqs you don't need. let's see the blazer?!
so got this - http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Slim-Fit-Blazer-In-Jersey/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=4128813&cid=5678&Rf989=4865&Rf-400=53&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=204&sort=3&clr=Greymarl&totalstyles=81&gridsize=3
i haven't bought a leather jacket in ages as i got one in h&m about 10 years ago which has done me, it's not this but kinda looks a bit like this - http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTAwWDM3NQ==/z/SBcAAOSwd4tULUt5/$_35.JPG?set_id=2
what sort of style are you looking for?
not really sure, something similar ish to that one, bomber style maybe.
i bought one online a few weeks ago, and i liked the look but when it turned up and i put it on i just didn't feel it, so sent it back
these are both quite nice -
'Hey Lo-Pan, nice new jacket, where'd you get it?'
'My stylist fitz picked it out for me'
'who the fuck is fitz, i've never heard you mention fitz before?!'
'He's one half of my stylist duo, EmO being the other'
we need to get EmO up here for a booze!
In summer so we can all wear our brown woven shoes, yeah?
a bit casual today is I
That's about it, really.
that's all i got
I'm about to ensure that the rest of the summer is cold and torrential rain, becauae I'm going to use the last of my clubcard boost vouchers to but a huge fan and a new BBQ.
Clubcard boost is the best- already had the new batman ps4 game for free and some vouchers for dinners at Bar Soba, still got so many vouchers to spend!!
Going to see an old Welsh friend tonight cause his bands playing here.
From there on just going to drink wine in the sun like an old divorcee. Might get a big hat for the occaision.
the good thing about the horrid rain of et last dfew days has been it seems ot have dampened the pollen, so my hayfever isn't too bad this week.
Weekend- weather dependant, but either something outdoorsy or maybe the cinema for the new scientology film.
Precious chubby little niece is 2 on Sunday and her daddy has installed a swing set and chute thing in the garden as her b'day present, and this is to be the central focus of the party.
Weather for sunday here- http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/gcuw11xee#?fcTime=1435449600
it was cute. he can't sing very well but he laid down some slick synth lines. or something.
How was it? I had thought about going but all of the dates are a bit of a pain to get to/bad timing
i'm not a unicorns fan and the music was a bit wet until the end when they did this brilliant drony rock tune but erm, yeah, good i guess
(sorry, I mean: FINDNG THIS MILDLY HUMOROUS!!1111!! OMG WTF)
Caddying for my mate who is in the golf Club Championship final tomorrow.
Friends over tomorrow night for Bar Bee Queue
Might go and see the Kelpies on Sunday if weather is decent.
I'd love to see the kelpies, definitely going to get down (up?) there this summer at some point.
seeing Taylor Swift and it's Sophia's birthday tomorrow, which should be good fun all round.
Going to get sloshed with some of the other lads finishing today. Going to Dublin Pride tomorrow and then having going away drinks with mates. Might go to a Gaelic football match on Sunday, might not.
To lincolnshire for the weekend with my chaps. My kitchen is full of treats to pack. Bought an aerobie. This is a good Friday.
I'm dying on my arse here.
Get them all nice and loose over a few white wines then go CIA on their arses
But if I ever do find the coward, I will fucking burn them.
nearly didn't get in though because my flatmate is a maddie and had in fact booked for Wednesday
did it take much persuasion?
because my friend was working it for ATP (lol) which is very lucky anyway, but I dunno they got the duty manager on who took sympathy with us because we were obviously pretty shocked. As a box office manager myself I'd have done the same so I appreciated the effort ;)
THEN THEY OPENED WITH SUPERHEROES OF BMX
was gutted i couldn't warrant going to this tour.
Just looked at the setlist you got. 'Christmas Steps', 'Mogwai Fear Satan' AND 'My Father My King'. Nice.
This is what we got in Cork:
I'm Jim Morrison, I'm Dead
Take Me Somewhere Nice
Superheroes of BMX
Mexican Grand Prix
How to Be a Werewolf
George Square Thatcher Death Party
My Father, My King
I Know You Are But What Am I?
was slightly sad we didn't get Yes! I am a long way from Home or How to be a Werewolf but that run of songs from 'Helicon', 'Freak' and 'Fear Satan' was incredible.
Also aye, My Father My King makes up for anything
Yes! I Am a Long Way From Home
Travel Is Dangerous
Friend of the Night
You Don't Know Jesus
New Paths to Helicon, Pt. 1
George Square Thatcher Death Party
Mexican Grand Prix
My Father, My King
2 Rights Make 1 Wrong
Mogwai Fear Satan
What a fucking band.
That's mad, I thought they did. Granted, I've only seen them at two festival shows.
they pretty much always play Hunted by a Freak and Helicon, otherwise it's all fair game
Third time lucky so.
nothing is certain.
I've seen them like 6 times now and they've never played one every time, luck of the draw really
I've seen them five times and they've played 'Do You Realize??' and 'She Don't Use Jelly' every fucking time.
I am really not one for resting or staying in.
I'm at my mums where the dog next door barks all day long. It's doing my head in.
You can go to the hairdressers just to get someone to wash your hair right? I'm desperate to wash it but I'm not allowed to get my eye wet for a week.
i'm sure if you explain due to a medical condition you can't get your eye wet that they'd accommodate you
hope you're feeling a bit better meo :) x
i feel so gross without washing my hair.
Thanks guys! Feel a little better today but just uncomfy. I got a scan of the inside of my head done yesterday and it's NUTS! Like properly mental that I have a metal mesh and a plate under my eyeball with no scars to the outside of my face. HOW DID IT GET THERE??!!!
pretty sure my gran get's like two of these a week!
glad to hear you're feeling a bit better
It's the new hipster thing, blowdry bars have popped up everywhere- spitalfields market, Selfridges, even in Glasgow they're everywhere (means you can go and have your hair blown out and styled in your lunch break or after work, so you don't before socialising after work without going home first)
loads of my friends in the US are always instagramming about it. Always calling it 'blowouts' though. That just makes me think of rosebudding. :-/
my little brother is getting married tomorrow so I'm back home helping with wedding banter all day. picking up my kilt in a bit.
pride of the forth (aka my official title)
fuck off mate
have a lovely day!
“Just saw a cunt punch a seagull in the face for trying tae steal his sausage roll. I needed to tell someone”
this little bit was too good to go unnoticed
a couple of beers at the flat last night turned into one person drinking allllll the beers would have been peeved but I got to drink this.
So good and not too expensive. Tonight probably not doing much aside from training since I'm off to Essex tomorrow to traipse around a castle.
got to pull myself together to have my hair cut in half an hour though.
in theory I am super excited to see Taylor Swift tomorrow, in practice I just want to go to sleep and fast forward to next year. yuk I'm such a miserable emo bellend today.
i know the feeling imaperv, it totally sucks.
just keep yersel as busy as possible, going to see taylor swuft's a good start.
hope you're feeling much better soon! :)
my hair looks great and I bought some necessities so I feel loads better now. just need mornings to stop feeling horrible!
you'll still have supported them but at least you'll be able to forgive yourself
I'm still shocked by the staggering ineptitude of fellow human beings. Its actually embarrassing to call some of these people colleagues.
Here we go.
Then a tutorial and then meeting a certain bald diser later, then meeting some other people and drink some more drinks
is that what the centrifuge option does?
I have basically switched off for Christmas at work at the moment, though I have a week left and shitloads to do in that time. Eurgh can't be bothered.
