Daytrip to Amsterdam. Classic spending more time travelling than in the meeting. How are you all?
got sent awesome bunch of flowers by a DiSer not a week after making a thread about it! Up this week: "buying people Nintendos or just giving them cash.
Otherwise largely uneventful. Tbh October will be month as fuck; September is only quite month
See if the pattern holds
I was in amsterdam last weekend, love it, though i didn't get much time at all to wander about.
Lovely crisp morn up here and a busy wee day ahead but it's mostly buying new kit so pretty enjoyable albeit expensive.
Half way through september, how the fuck did that happen?!
I think it's my dad's wedding anniversary today. Gonna see if I can send some flowers for his wife.
THEN cycle to work, early finish (6pm) and potter home. I like Tuesdays.
Fuck the wind.
got an interview this afternoon so trying to get my head around large defence company asset management stuff...
also what are good questions to ask at the end of an interview? or if they say - is there anything you'd like to say that we haven't covered? I hate that question
Discussed with colleagues on the bus and everyone felt the same way and we all noticed a weird smell on the bus along with it being very, very warm. I suspect exhaust fumes were leaking into the cabin so we've written in to this bus company to complain.
Otherwise I'm good. Spent yesterday evening listening to jazz then learning Guided By Voices songs. Going to practice tonight and continue my regime of going to bed before ten on weekday nights.
Oh, I might get Tinder later! Seems a bit pointless but it wouldn't hurt to give it a try, non?
so my legs are pretty shot this morning, doing it all over again tonight though and then off to see In Cold Blood at BFI #cultural.
Quite nice though as it was just round the corner from my flat, played 3 15 minute 5-a-side games, was quite a good format.
In other news, interview at Hackney Picturehouse tomorrow!
will be applying for Glasgow Film Fest job too...
to get the ball rolling for next years events
would be really nice if I got it cuz I'm applying for the marketing team rather than Box Office/Front of House stuff this time which I think would be a much needed change or direction. Obviously very early days but quite excited at the potential of working there again
it's a cracking festival and everyone there is really great to work with, lovely bunch of folk.
Also was too depressed to get out of bed for three days, including pulling a sickie.
Delicious stuff guys.
you OK dude? try and call a GP or something proactive?
I've dragged myself into work so that's something.
by all means let us know if you need to chat anytime x
Currently trying out poached egg and avocado on sourdough toast. I'm not loving it, to be perfectly honest.
Got a driving test cancellation for this Friday morning. Bricking it a bit because I don't feel as prepared as I did for my first one.
Instructor can't do it. Brilliant.
You need to give it a bit of zing.
Add my mega tomatoes to it:
Garlic, thyme, teaspoon if icing sugar, salt, pepper and olive oil mixed up. Coat some halved baby plum vine toms in a baking dish and leave it in the oven at 90 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Best thing ever basically.
With olives, caper berries, Parmesan, leaves and homemade croutons.
Are you alright Stakkaz?
A mate of ours delivered six delicious sandwiches to our door yesterday so we've all taken one to work. I think mine's got some kind of serrano ham and feta mix going on.
Well up for some veggies right now tbh.
and makes the flat smell amazing as well
It was all.. fine. But not bothered.
And then didn't.
Looking forward to it.
if you like that sort of thing, very tasty
top lad. Slept for about three hours last night because for some reason I thought it'd be a great idea to have a quick coffee after training so I could perk myself enough to respond to some emails/messages, ended up staying up until almost three #YOLO.
Good job I don't want it, cos the spicy pizza I had last night FUCKED ME UP. I had to stop the interview 3 times to go to the toilet...
Nothing else going on today. Maybe apply for some jobs I do want.
Can't believe it.
