In Glasgow for the week, doing some training course for work. Pretty lonely. What you all up to?
I'm just trying to stay awake until an acceptable time to go to bed. Pretty impressed with myself for having made it this far tbh
gonna make gnocchi and probably read until i fall asleep
daughter and wife come home tonight from Canada so pretty excited to see them both.
How you enjoying Glasgow Starmixer?
Same week my company book me in for this course, my girlfriend is getting (had) her stomach removed due to cancer. Quite successful so far and I'm only 20 minutes walk from the infirmary
Made cola gammon earlier. It was really tasty.
It's fucking loud.
there should be people setting themselves on fire in the street over this shit maaaaan
just done my nails and removed body hair and stuff. baked loads of stuff today incl. a feta sourdough bread which i just had 4 slices of. just feel so disgusting and slobby. sunday night dread too.
manicam your nails, sistah
everyone seems to be in glasgow at the moment! going to a free jazz thing tomorrow (william parker + hamid drake + john dikeman) and then either girlpool or container on wednesday and maybe some other stuff on other nights, if you wanted something to do
4-2, and all four goals were really good. I scored the first, which was a) the first EVER under our new name, and b) described as Manchester City-esque by the two City fans in our ranks, making me, the one who ghost through the middle and smashed it in the roof of the net, Sergio Aguero in this equation.
but the best thing is that we're playing in the Manchester Accountancy League, despite not being accountants, and the team we comprehensively beat were the Price Waterhouse Coopers team. HAH! fuck you, tax dodger enablers!
hope KPMG have a team so we can make them feel bad about themselves also.
took my mind off my precarious job situation, and how I also really like someone from my former job who is prrrobably unattainable.
the latter gave me a big hug on our last shift, and looked really pretty on the work night out, and I thought maybe she was giving signals (ugh, sorry), but I can't imagine why she would.
sorry, that all sounded hopelessly teenaged.
just send her a text saying "hey, i wondered if you fancied a drink sometime this week? let me know when you're free x"
I should just know that and be able to do that without fear by now.
maybe I'll just do that.
really, I'd like the dark to finally close in on me, laughing ruefully and madly, as this played on repeat.
that's pretty, i always thought that infinite body was more like hecker-esque shoegaze-y drone?
that one's an atypical, interstitial kind of track.
hey, so I just watched 'The 400 Blows'. I love how the music and the kid's wily, resiliant nature contrasts with the unhappiness of his life. it's easier when a film manipulates you, really tries to wring the emotion out of you, but the plucky and playful soundtrack to this one is more compelling.
like, I've this bad habit in the way I listen to sad music and fall into self-pitying fantasy. I feel like I've lost some of my ability to appreciate nuance.
I'm listening to that Infinite Body record, track three is so good. just this lambent, pink, gauzey organ drone over an airy ambient recording of a busy room, but it's so natural and gorgeous. think I prefer this to Tim Hecker.
smells delicious and I'm hungry again :(
Please don't take me home. I just don't want to go to work.
