What is up
Was going to go into town but it's been pissing down most of teh day.
festival of sorts at Clarkenwell that me and my mate will pass time at. Then a film at The Barbican. A nice easy day planned. Looking forward to it.
Perfectly acted, scripted and directed. A beautiful low key film with two actors at the top of their game.
Had a shave too.
Students back tomorrow after two months off. I should be in Notting Hill drinking rum out of a coconut.
Feeling highly integrated into the British lifestyle.
possibly club later but it'll be rammed and I cba with it
cutting out all the bits is hard work and the cat keeps trying to sit on my pattern
i volunteered to work tomorrow because i might as well because my boyfriend was going to be on a camping trip. except they've only gone and decided to come back today, so i'll be at work tomorrow for nothing*
*except time and a half and a day off in lieu
but with some modifications that i'm a little concerned will balls it up
gonna stuff my face full of roast dinner and then sleep I think.
Or beginning of migraine.
I think it's just a bad headache. Either way: ow.
Slept a bit until the painkillers kicked in and I think I'm sorted now.
Back to my previously scheduled busy afternoon of sitting.
What are you up to?
I've just had my hair cut and am watching football before going out to a birthday party in Shoreditch later.
heading to Brixton and Retrospectacular in a few hours though (y)
Are you happy with your new haircut RR
Going to wash it and then see.
What are the George R. R. Martin books like? Are they sweary and sexy like the TV show?
Got up super early and sorted my downstairs out. Did a bit more gardening (but its now spitting) so watching football. Bloody love weekends.
'sorted my downstairs out' is a great euphemism
feel a bit sick now
watching some seinfeld, going out to meet my sister for dinner later
Going to that soul night on ridley road tonight though so going to have to snap out of it and get my dancing shoes on. Gonna be woeful. Me, not it.
noticed they do minions flavour now
is a good-looking chap.
went to a Wes Anderson all nighter at the Prince Charles cinema last night. had very little sleep and drank so much vodka. was a fun night though.
making breakfast, setting it immaculately on the table, and standing up to look at it from directly above
I poured all my alcohol down the sink this morning, I'm giving up, I'm going to force myself to be social and I'm going to pick up my guitar again. Was sliding into dangerous alcoholism and depression and I'm too young to give up so there!
Really wonderful the support I've received from this place over the years :)
watched Fargo earlier, choosing what to watch first out of Boyhood and Shawshank. might go for Shawshank.
One of my best mate's stag do last night. He moved to Oz a few years ago so it's not often we get to see him, plus a fuck-tonne of his crew from out there came over too. Was a blast, but glad I came home on the last tube cause I'm dying now. Also, zorb football is horrific.
Wanted to do something worthy but my lawnmower just broke. Ffs. Should be going to a bbq tonight. Also going to B-right-on tmw to see the grandparents then hopefully see my buddy again before his wedding this weekend (in France, fuckin' A).
I'm wearing teal trousers.
apparently the summer one here was August 3rd, but I didn't get a day off work ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I actually do have tomorrow off though, as I've finished my great internship (weep) and I'm going back to work in a call centre while I look for permanent jobs, and fuck working an evening in there when it's a Bank Holiday in like 90% of the country by population. I don't actually know what I'm going to do instead...
My girlfriend has gone out to a folk music gig with a new friend so I might watch the new Adam Wingard film on Netflix.
flying into Dublin, two nights there, going on to Cork for two more nights. my girlfriend's ma is originally from the latter and is having a big birthday party there so I get to meet all the (apparently mad) extended family. Excellent. I've never been to Ireland at all though, so I'm excited!
it's not a bank holiday here. actually i have to go back to work tomorrow after two weeks off, which is pretty ergh. but i had a fabulous time doing pretty normal things, which is always good, and i'm feeling a bit more positive than i did two weeks ago. i feel like i've halfway got hold of my life again and that actually things can be ok and that they very well might be. cool, huh?
- orange juice
- chicken breasts
- pain au chocolats
- chocolate biscuits
- loaf of bread
went out to see my brother and had a carvery and got... tipsy. and then we watched the english women's team win the hockey. good day even if some decrepit old bitch woman took the last of the lamb before i made it to the hotplate
dunno what to do this evening. read? early night?
Then did a 10 mile bike ride up the Thames and the Lee canal to some pubs/breweries, where I got tipsy and wrote some stuff. Now back, watching X Factor, eating pizza, then going to watch some NFL and drink more beer. All is good.
Is that Dobby doing the v/o on a thrush ad?
