Got plans for the weekend? Gonna be nice weather lads, better make the most of it.
cleaning up the old motor to get on autotrader
bit of bike tinkerin
me boys football
like I'm gonna slip into a depression pit, got that underwater vibe. dunno why really, nothing to drive it. I think the positive feedback I've been getting at work and being given a career plan is part of it as its setting my life on rails, even though I don't dislike my job or my colleagues.
also been really busy recently which is extending to this weekend. wrestling session with Joseph Conners tonight who is one of my favourite wrestlers in the UK, then off to see my mates band after. Tomorrow I've lunch with a friend then need to do clothes and food shopping then gym and then out for drinks with mates. Fuck Sunday.
Your weekend sounds nice though
One day at a time - you never know how these things will pan out or where they'll lead you! If anything maybe you have more doors open to you as result of getting on at work?
Sorry that you're getting those vibes, but they'll pass for sure. Enjoy the weekend and stay away from the crystal ball yo x
Probs head down to Kent/Sussex for a walk and picnic with the wife-elect on Saturday, then maybe do some gardening on Sunday (by which I mean pulling up the masses of overgrown weeds).
(also part of me misses an actual proper garden but swings and roundabouts)
Plus some old plant pots and rubbish they've dragged in. They rapidly gone from cute pseudo-dogs to full-on crack foxes
Tonight: maybe bike ride
Tomorrow: might have to traipse to Wembley to check a friend's house while they're away but I really cannot be fucked. Might have a BBQ. Might cycle about a bit. Deffo gonna go to the park in the evening for a free showing of the Wizard of Oz on a massive screen.
Sunday: joining a local cycling club for their "steady" (WAAAYHEEEY LADS) club ride. Probably join afterwards.
Park drinking tonight, dunno if I can cope
like a really low budget halfway point between tinto de verano and sangria. recommend bd
honestly, if red wine and lemonade is delicious and great in stinking hot weather, why shouldn't red wine and orangina be? try it, you will 100% thank me
which I'm also enjoying, and are much wankier (and nearly as good)
got a belated birthday BBQ for Sophia tomorrow. I believe we've got about 20+ people coming, many of whom will be standing, which is at least double the most we've had at ours before.
a couple of Londoners are coming over tonight for dinner, which will be lovely.
not sure what's going on on Sunday yet. some stuff probably.
he's eating crisps before 9 again. hero.
might start a thread about cycling, mental health, sexism and trolling if anyone's up for it
I think I saw that one once
Then HOUSEWORK WEEKEND!!! YAY!!!
Oh, and watching cycling for hours on end obviously.
No idea how it'll go. Kind of don't care really.
Band practice tonight, then a friend and I are checking out a DJ night we want to play.
I don't want to do anything on Saturday bar go to a hip-hop evening in the bar across from our practice space. Sunday can fuck right off.
So tired from doing too much. I need to hide out for a few days but I'm too busy.
There's always something going on in Cork. It's a great little city.
I'm approaching burnout now though, not giving myself enough time to relax. Might hide out in a café during the day on Saturday and read a book for a few hours.
told someone i love them last night
response: "that means a lot"
kinda feel like my life is slowly disintegrating into loads of tiny little pieces of shit
maybe they just weren't quite ready to say the same thing back yet?
but I reckon everyone has a terrible story around saying "I love you" (I have two). One day you'll look back and laugh (and cringe).
I smell a thread coming on
Big bosses are out today so I'mma listen to Vince Staples on a loop for most of the morning.
Got some safe weekend plans, taking my fiancee to see Bjork in Manchester on Sunday as part of her birthday present. It's supposed to be raining all day mixed in with a little bit of thunder and lightning :(
I hope not.
well, let's hope their forecast is completely wrong!
I'm starting to think you don't care about my leg troubles.
Quiet weekend ahead. Few busy weeks coming up so need to save funds. Might have a BBQ on the balcony.
But I assume it's all good now?
so I've just been saying, 'my legs hurt.' Which they did. They're better now but the lack of sympathy from you monsters still haunts me.
Is it hometime yet?
thankfully I'm too massive to be killed by conventional weaponry.
And what a beautiful moleman it is.
Either gym or bike ride tonight. Maybe gym tonight and bike ride tomorrow.
Food park thing on Saturday evening.
Fuck all on Sunday. Really want to start testing decks for a tournament next weekend but the cards aren't out till the middle of next week. Can't really be arsed making proxies.
but she likes good games so i will persevere
and can now barely walk. Waddlign around the office and ones ordered a different chair (this is what prompted me to look). I find this very distressing. No plans this weekend whatesoever
I'm pretty sure he said only yesterday that everyone he works with is a woman in that one thread, innit.
Is that I'm 'frustratingly consistent'
Feel so out of the loop.
made made good music recently?
(this is a stupid question because obv you have)
there's a couple of new ones on my soundcloud (https://soundcloud.com/bamnan/).
I mean I do love sharing my music but I wish I had something else to talk about. I do have some grim family stuff but I don't want to talk about that really. Guess I could pretend I met a pretty lady or something.
I really do need to stop eating pizza all the time though, probably haven't gone more than three days without having one for I dunno 6 months.
How's that for a first try?
also: don't ever stop eating pizza, it's the bestest
like walking 7 miles a day, doing sit ups and boring shit but then I just binge on pizza and beer, such a moron!
I keep promising myself I'll limit to having pizza as a rare treat and switch to drinking something less calorific but beer and pizza is just too damn tempting
Gonna be like breaking an addiction.
Else I'd be hitting it basically all the time. Didn't stop me from making one last night though (wanted something to accompany the x1000 salads we have left over from this week).
my insides hate me!
surely walking fuckloads means you CAN eat pizza and drink beer
(A Little Dirt especially) so I'm gonna get cracking listening to the rest <3
You know your way around a piano too fair play!
actually I really don't though! I don't know where that came from, I don't even know chords on piano or anything I just sat down for an hour in a daze from the heat on Monday afternoon and it just came out! Dunno sometimes I try and force myself to make something out of obligation but often it's best to just surprise yourself.
Sometimes just forcing a song out can lead to really good stuff
Keep doing them!
inspired by the trainwreck that was yesterdays cycling thread.
One verse each about drivers, sexism, trolling and mental health and a HUGE happy chorus like Bicycle Race by Queen.
I'm sure DiS will help with the lyrics
Someone must have deleted it!!
Very rarely, in spite of their chronicling of the minutae of their day/weekends, is anyone actually doing anything remotely interesting.
Have a crack son, people are genuinely interested in how you are/what you're up to.
Don't matter s'pose but never going to reach those dizzying heights again am I.
Easy come easy go.
Weekend in reach, weather's not going to be as good apparently. Ah well eh.
(it was NOT me)
Not on the main boards though!
Doesn't seem to be any *more* awfulness in it
another bloody bug
I'm too warm.
Just eating some watermelon and busting out a coffee at my desk. Got loads to do and not getting any of it done (shrugs).
Chill one tonight with a beer and finishing Akira (vol 1) in the garden, then having some celebratory times in London after completing 1 x year of marriage, so Mrs Stack and I are off to town for general good times and a stay in an outrageous hotel! Really looking forward to some time with her away from the rush of normal life as we've both been all over the place recently. She's the best.
Enjoy the sunshine people x
and attendant This-ers!
Lovely to see you in the Daily Thread me old mucker.
Feel guilty now that I've not made enough music though, I hate my obsessive compulsive nature sometimes!
You'll be accompanying my garden oriented manga-induction!
I have about 80 sketches on my computer and can never finish anything (cause I don't trust my lyrics and don't want to make instrumental music) so anything you get out there or work on beats me and everyone else I know!
we should collaborate sometime! That would genuinely be fun don't you think?
was meant to send you some bits and pieces after the new year but always feel it's pretty sub-par compared to how pro your stuff is! Will let you know when I've got some stuff down and send it over to you - it takes me a while but I will get there!
Also yr lyrics are great ",
but I've spent a fair bit of money on semi-pro hobbyist stuff which can go some way in masking mediocre or lazy songwriting. Feel free to pm me anything!
my new company goes all in on the work socialising, was out till 2am, fed and watered very generously and didn't pay a penny. Suffering for it now though.
Going to a rooftop cinema thing tonight, that New Zealand vampire film? (Is it any good?). Got a steak dinner booked tomorrow but not much else, really just want to chill.
it's meant to be very good, aye
but the title makes me thing of that rasmus song and it gets stuck in my head and I get mad and forget what I was going to do.
I know most people go to these things to watch classics and stuff but I was fucked if I was going to pay a load to see a film I'd seen before.
look how uncomfortable these people look! I've got a tiny pillow, this is never going to work.
The good part of it is it's BYO, is there anywhere around Old Street/Shoreditch to buy good beers? Otherwise I'll just find the nearest M&S.
that's pretty cool
city beverage company???
Will check it out.
will be a lovely surprise to check (but will they be chilled?!). M&S as back up I guess.
Yes, they have beers, about 30.
Yes, some are chilled and some are not.
Has one of my favourite lines in any film (courtesy of murray from Conchords, obv).
my glasgow geofilter was accepted by snapchat, so now anyone in glasgow can use it. really happy about this for some reason.
just explained it to sheeldz. take it none of you use snapchat any more then?
if you take a snap somewhere with yr gps on you can add a geofilter, a wee picture that usually just says the name of the place. glasgow didn't have one, so I made one and today they approved it which means anyone in glasgow can add it.
what's your snapchat name dave?
(don't really know what snapchat is)
I got rid of my personal phone as I was fed up always lugging two phones around, and I had my number ported into my work phone. which is a sodding blackberry i.e NO APPS, EVER.
I'm brewing tonight, chilling for the rest of the week
I need to do some myself soon. I've a massive bucket full of empty bottles in the kitchen the gf is getting increasingly annoyed about.
I've been wanting to make another porter but it's too damn warm.
Really not expecting too much, though I think primary fermentation went okay, but the flat's been so fucking hot this week I think it might have really messed with the yeast. Optimum temp is about 21c, my kitchen's been getting up to like 25c, so we'll see how bad it's ended up.
of a job.
And I look so shit hot I could shag myself.
I'm actually one step closer to being a musician full time. I got paid vocal work. Fuck yea. I'd rather be on less money and be happy than working in a job thst makes me want to claw the windows and jump 50 feet from a mother fucking high building in Soho.
Fuck yeah mits, that's great!
I will be out straight after work in the pub getting drunk. If anyone's about come on down.
Tonight - chill cakes
Tomorrow - brunch, chilling, something in evening
Sunday - fam dinner our
Come for a drink after work..x
As got myself on the waiting list to be a ball person at Wimbledon!!!! Just need a few more of them to heat faint and I could be on court. It has been a dream of mine for a while now and really think I deserve this for what I have been through...I may get in trouble though as meant to be doing the lates at the take away :/
and willingness to live on the edge (as otherwise, as you always say, you're taking up too much room) is something we should all aspire to.
this weekend; throwing all my shit out that i don't need before packing for a move. details of the move will be confirmed in due time. it's either going to work out BRILLIANTLY or fuck up beyond compare. i will say that if smee moves to glasgow, it'll be confirming the one in - one out trade policy between england and scotland.
in other news i got a haircut last night.
it is as part of me as my accent is
Not many weekend plans, which is kind of nice but also a little sad because my last three have been absolute 10/10 would weekend again gems... I guess it'd be good to do producive stuff, see the fam etc though? Noticed I'd only read 8 books this year (plan was one a week!) So could do some catching up on that...
Made up with someone I felt mega guilty about falling out with this week too, so that was pretty ace
Like 24 hours and it posted straight away without making me log in
Does it get much better than this ??
Sean you're doing a wonderful job
Getting my hair done for the first time in 12 weeks tomorrow. It so badly needs trimmed and highlighted. Everything else will revolve around the excitement and success/failure levels of this.
sitting inside, avoiding the sun
TRY ME, SLE, TRY ME.
wee bit sad that I'm not off on my previously planned weekend to Leeds but oh well :/ Shard/Butch Walker were good yesterday. not sure if I can be arsed to go out and do anything at all this weekend or see my friends this evening.
to which you are all invited. There will be Greek salads and feta and lamb burgers and pitta breads and ouzo, political discussion aplenty and some good tunes on my iPod dock.
I'll be firing up the BBQ at about 4pm so arrive anytime around then. Then at 5pm, when the exit polls come in, I will be tipping over the BBQ in despair and asking you all to leave.
PM me for the address.
I love you ohgood
"that means a lot"
Crazy Barry wants to come and you know how fussy he is
although they look far too clean cut to be creating such a twisted mix of jungle, experimental noise. Not sure if I can be doing gigs that end at almost 12 on a week day though.
Tonight might go to training my right knee is kind of sore so may actually end up having a quiet one. Saturday going to Draughts to play some board games and probably going to have some dinner afterwards.
Gonna cycle to Hatchmere and go wild swimming when he's finished, then gonna go to the pub, then make a fire in the woods and get drunk.
Tomorrow got nowt planned in the day, then putting this on in the evening: https://www.facebook.com/events/876446282402551/ (MME welcome to come down)
Sunday I'm spending 12 hours in London, half of which will be spent with my dad and his family, the other half on the semi-date which is looking more like a date now. Gr8 stuff m8s.
it's fucking friday
got a date on the horizon
I've lost track of time cuz it doesn't get dark here. Norway is amazing x
Played in someone's garden yesterday so so nice, rooftop is Oslo tomorrow!
Next weekend so we'll see! ;)
are you on holiday? I remember I met a bunch of Norweigans in the Doors cafe in Amsterdam once and they took me to a black metal club. It was fucking amazing.
Got some time off next week!
Next time hen!
she's got no idea what's going on
Click on the link for a free one!
we love you M!
Do I need another?
Have a vague understanding of what it entails now, but I've been designated as project manager on a project and I have never had to manage jack in the way of shit before so am a little scared.
Heading to London tonight to see my sister and some family friends (hilarious Jewish lady from Brooklyn is visiting too - she fucking RULES). Saturday eating lots of food and getting some rest in preparation for doing the DUNWICH DYNAMO on a bike that I am 98% sure won't make it (tires are bald, brakes are a bit shonky, it's old as shit). Sunday I'll be fucking ravaged and just trying to recover from 120 miles of cycling overnight in time to be at least half a person come work on Monday.
Have a good Friday/weekend, you lot.
Had plans to do it last year but completely fucked it all up and left it too late.
I'm so fucking weak and sickly nowadays
it was boring anyway.
Short version: Dunwich Dynamo on Saturday night, recovering Sunday.
If a job closes today is it likely to be 5pm or midnight (please say midnight)?
I applied for something yesterday and the deadline wasn't even until TODAY (4pm). So chuffed with myself.
Leave it until the last minute and then it'll be on top of the pile and then they just chuck the others away.
Although it doesn't make any difference really - they're not gonna look at the applications until 9am Monday morning anyway. Some HR spod should've just made the deadline midnight on Sunday for all it actually matters.
But bang it in for 5pm.
It's sunny and I'd rather go swimming in Cheshire than apply for some poxy job.
It really sucks being a nighttime/weekend DiSer
now i'm fat and wont be doing any work
Might do a little bit more work then go for some sun beers
feel a bit weird
How'd it go?
really hope theo sees the picture I made of him
orgasm aids thread obvs
and I now have a wee pink nose. I need to nip home and pack shortly for my overnighter. oh brother.
By going into intense notice period renegotiations with the new manger.
But he isn't in, so instead I've just been reading every single article on BBC News.
think I want to die!
had a big lunch and loads of Gin.
.........i need a nap
