i'm trying really, really hard not to go and buy a coffee but i'm really tired and really bored.
ya dead, mon?
i live in the countryside now.
All my furniture and belongings are packed up ready for inspection from the council tomorrow so it looks like I don't live there (hope they don't go on DiS!!!1)
And some other folks bedframes and boxes thrown in there to look all storagey.
So I'm banished until tomorrow really. Ho-hum.
The rent's too good to complain at him really
He's a bad guy, I'm a bad guy, I'm going to hide in the pub for a bit.
good luck RFWare
and you to dress up as a cheerleader?
Not in front of them, like.
How long should you keep it before doing so?
Obviously I'll keep all the REALLY good stuff*, but glittery pinecones and the like I can do without...
and throw it into the darkest recess of your loft. Guilt assuaged, problem solved.
a MEMORY box?
If so, I don't know what they are.
physically pack it up and move it to a new destination. Took a lot of soul searching to find the perfect formula for personal well being.
(so, the oldest is on her 6-7 book and the youngest her 2-3 book). Keeps it to a manageable amount, plus they like looking back on them.
listening to Sabbath though so that's a plus... i guess
i tried to get a quick wash in so i could do two lots on one meter hit, took my clothes out and they're soaking but i'm not spending another 2 quid.
did the usual of standing there going 'oh yeah, ok. that's cool, yep, cool i get it, nice, cool'
walked out and go ffs fucking dickheads
so i've put up with it because i couldn't be arsed to carry on looking for places.
There's greed and then there's just malice.
€1 for 45 minutes of drying. Questioned it when I moved in but that money piles up and is eventually used towards the electricity bill when it comes in.
We have the key to access it as well so if you're ever horrendously stuck for cash you can borrow some (with the approval of all the housemates.) Ended up going to Dublin with €75 in €1 coins once. Got some strange looks in pubs.
Meter on the wall by the dryer, €1 coin gives you 45 minutes of dryer time. I guess it just regulates the power going into the dryer itself.
The landlord doesn't collect it either, he just gave us the key. Two and a half years in and the system still works.
even though you have the key to it
and the landlord doesn't collect it
and sometimes you borrow money from it (with permission)
but then you put the money back?
- We put the money in.
- The money remains there until the next electricity bill comes in.
- We then empty it and the money collected goes towards the bill.
- The cycle begins again.
If money is borrowed from the stash it's accepted as a very short-term loan. My above example was the greatest abuse/use of the loan system and was paid back the next day (payday for me).
...see you tomorrow, everyone!
in that while you are forced to pay to get the dryer, you can then refund yourself if you really want.
I am allowed to say it's one of the most Irish things I've ever heard?
I'm well aware it's a strange arrangement.
are you ok, can we help?
Got another half (an hour) before going back to the pub to watch some more cricket. Summer is good.
of a garage near work, I think they belong to the chauffeur in there.
but I can't have sugar innit. which is fine except my colleague form Norn Irn has made FIFTEENS and if there's one thing in the world right now I want to eat it's fifteens.
have had them at Cake and candy days at school, they're originally northern irish but as the good people of west of Scotland have a nose for a tin of condensed milk, it didn't take long before it was embraced over here too.
It was nice, despite looking a lot like vomit. Bound to be super healthy when it looks that bad though, so that's good for my ridiculous excuse for an immune system (Y)
just went out for a meal with my parents for the first time in about two years
my mam ordered two courses but there wasn't anything on the dessert menu i could have so she gave me £3 to get a coffee from across the road <333
ordered 3 pizzas from 2 different places
no regrets though, yet
awful visions of them getting here simultaneously and having a fight
think i might need to go to the dentist :(((((((((((((
So bored i could kill a horse
Haven't seen my dad in 3+ months but he's so fucking apathetic
Just told him i was going to the pub to meet a friend. There is no friend, just don't want to stick aroind the housr
mate i am currently living in LOWESTOFT for two months. if you thought norwich was boring you try living in a real shithole
Lowestoft is another level
But norwich is pretty terrible, just so staid, hardly anything going on. Half expect everyone to be wearing slippers
meh, it used to be better i think (when i lived here full time about 5 years ago there was at least once a week something worth going to in norwich) but it's one of those places which has basically died on its arse now that it's too expensive for anything to happen outside of london/manchester/glasgow
some stuff that's worth checking out if you can be bothered i guess:
- cinema city
- norwich outpost gallery http://www.norwichoutpost.org/calender.html
- the jeff koons thing in the castle ? (risible artist but maybe worth seeing idk what of his stuff they've got)
- sitting in a poncey cafe in tomblands and read/write
Went to playhouse and library cafe and read for a while
Will check out outpost/koons, thanks
I dunno, everybody just seems to be content to mosey around and drink in some mice pubs...which is fine for a few days but if you live here?
it's cold here.
If you see a lead character with more than 1 person it feels like a betrayal. Even though the average human being would have numerous dalliances throughout their lives,the audience can only really invest in one. Why is that?
Sorry im really bored
