hello. lots of unpacking ahead for me, but what about YOU? plans, etc?
Was meant to be doing to a nerdy card game tournament but I've been up all night with the worst case of the epimers in living memory. Tried to get up and down sports rehydration stuff and power through, but it's not happening. I'm ruined.
Can't get back to sleep now so I'll just be whimpering and praying for the sweet relief of death all morning.
that doesn't sound good
Full blown bum wee. Still can't trust farts. It's not great, tbqfh.
Then going for something to eat/drink
Probably be a sleep by 6pm
I quite like unpacking. Putting everything in its place, problem comes a week later when you cant find everything :/
and good coffee. Might spend the day reading some graphic novels and finishing Stranger Things 👌
for moving. But it's so fucking much effort I totally cba.
Listening to the new Pye Corner Audio, so bloody good.
Had it for ages but I am crap at "sitting down and reading" but I've just blasted through 100 pages of it. It's awesome.
Added it to the list.
and then going punting somewhere in Warwick.
Sorry to hear about your Eps, Eps.
I'm playing football as usual. Might cinema later. We're making and eating cubanos at some point too.
so on top of unpacking, am now hungover and have to clean up as well. Was good craic though!
For those unfamiliar with this soon-to-be-ubiquitous tradition, it involves buying this: http://www.lidl.co.uk/en/10779.htm?action=showDetail&id=28336 and eating it.
Happy Ham Day, one and all.
(I'm forgiving you for not using the appropriate festive greeting as you are clearly new to HD)
Plans have changed slightly from those advertised as Lidl didn't have any legs of ham in, but we've got some sliced stuff and have also made some meatballs, and will be making hedgehogs out of tinfoil-wrapped melons and cocktail sausages, so the ham celebrations can continue. I'm just on my way to the shop to look for party rings.
went to a party last night and had just started my period so decided to 'drink through the pain'. me and my new replacement at work have really hit it off and i'm actually pretty sad that i wont get to hang out with her. we went to one of the really crap divey pubs in our neighbourhood last night and it turns out the people in it are all really aggressive racists so we left :( .... erm, now i am hungover, spent about half an hour looking for my phone. listening to the new (really excellent) bamnan and gonna eat unhealthy food. i feel so disgusting.
Never has a phrase been so wrong. Free candy floss though...
i regulary confuse posters ericthethird and epimer
There are some things that I like.
epimer - likes card games
eric - likes moving house
which makes today's incident even more upsetting.
Epimer = eats pizza
Eric = eats burritos
listening to roxy music
someone say something
after all that has happened, probably rightly so. it really is probably for the best. but i can't see that right now and i'm hurting a lot.
trying to find an air bnb to move into for a month before i likely move back to the uk, as i now have no job, no partner, no apartment, and few friends in this city.
what city are you in? could anyone off here help?
I'm just gonna take a nap.
best thing i've seen all week
Had to go into town, annoyingly, and got wetter than the average disers bedsheets. Was going to go to Wickes this afternoon, but might leave that til tomorrow I think. What an exciting day!
good plan/bad plan?
Starting new season of You're The Worst, few eps of Seinfeld too, tidy the flat, ask a girl out. Solid list I'd say.
My insides hurt.
Anyone want a glass snakes and ladders shots game? Thought not. Listening to the new Bracket album - it's weird.
Going to read some more of Ready Player One as well.
Alternate future, the world is a bit crapshack and everyone plays this virtual reality game (reminds me of Better Than Life from Red Dwarf) to escape. The dude who created the game is dead and whoever finds the easter egg he planted in the game gets to inherit his fortune (bit Willy Wonka in that sense). Lots of 80s references as well.
Might just as spend the weekend eating that tbh
Really worth the subscription fee.
moving into a tiny flat, wondering what I can do with the landlords furniture that I have no desire to keep because it's bulky and shite
Excellent. That's the rest of this afternoon sorted.
Went for a Bloody Mary and now pottering about the flat. Might go meet some folk for some wine and stuff
Quite like unpacking but it does entail the worst chore of all time - putting clothes away. Fucking hate it. My bedroom floor is a disgrace at the moment as a consequence.
Hungover and have a bad cold today but my absolute belter of a baby let me sleep in until 10am then has been happy to not do anything at all but cuddle or lie on the floor blowing raspberries.
Gilmore Girls marathon ahead...
Now on the sofa reading comics after failing to convince my girlfriend to play board games with me.
Went for a 50 mile ride with my bro before he goes back to boarders tonight :( Gonna miss that little munchkin.
Party at my dad's tonight (unrelated... possibly).
for breakfast i had baked beans. for the first time in about 18 months. am working until late. farts haven't started yet.
that's all i've got, other than this http://i.imgur.com/WPY6fVV.jpg (am fully aware that i need to assemble a team to cut the nails on his left paw again, but it is exhausting and a three-person job)
he's on a diet
photo looks like the front cover of 'knock knock' by smog a bit
As if having a separate big suitcase in which to take your pillow on holiday isn't COMPLETELY FUCKING MENTAL.
maybe they have a medical pillow of some sort
Also caned 4 xanax quarters and did some other bad stuff so have just woken up. Utterly fucking my life m8s!
but she told me I had no self worth(!) jfccc
ask her out
was only meant to do a few hours but offered to come in because we were really far behind after yesterday (loads of the foreign starters at a private school came in together for a big uniform buying session, pretty major operation in terms of logistics and the £££ spent. got to help an adorable Spanish girl and a total badass Russian girl who said my Russian pronunciation needed work but that people in Moscow would understand me ❤️ ). was an ok day. gonna make an egg curry with lentil pilau for dinner, although my feet hurt loads so i've caned a load of junk food until i can be arsed to stand up again.
updated my address at banks, elec/gas, internet, tv license, labour party
what have i forgotten?
trying to think of all the people that send me junk mail
now i'm meant to be getting ready to go to a party but i cba and i don't have anything to wear.
and fish dress is a bit revealing :/
and some mug has paid £150 for it. farkin 'ell.
What the fuck was it, bible first edition?
burzum's guide to sorcery and religion in ancient scandinavia
Or have more drinks and watch strange things/play some xbox360 for first time in 2 years........
so just having a chilled weekend reading some new comics I picked up and also Jenny Diski's In Gratitude. Also have Dark Souls 3 to start and my Tacocat t-shirt arrived so that cheered me up a bit.
having a weekend off of socialising to read a bunch of shit and recuperate, should i go get some garbage food for the evening. by which i mean: what garbage food?
got the latest oh sees on and drinking some craft beer and reading about quantum mechanics
just having a quiet night in and t
hope youre having a good n
just watched millennium actress. i have nothing on in my life until the 19th.
watching brian pern. ordered some takeaway and accidentally stroked the delivery guy's hand upon delivery, pretty awkward. might go to end of the road tomorrow to see joanna newsom depending on the weather and if I can face the drive.
Went for a veggie selection this time - deep fried cauliflower was the best.
I'm bored, and ill. Might go to bed soon (will probably stay up until 1am dicking about on Facebook though really)
Aimless internet can't be helped, don't worry about it. How's little one?
well middle ground between cold and flu. There should be a term for that. Clu? Fold?
Malin is super, got up late, had loads of naps, didn't cry, went to bed early. She sensed my hangover I think. How's mini Finton?
Miss Stack has been a bit fussy today but is by and large very well. She's a sleeper too, we get a good night pretty much every night - last feed at 11, up at 7.00/8.00 so it's a bit of a dream really.
We're getting so much back from her now, it's lovely. The smiles :)
That was for ttf.
Cut my skirting board and did a first coat on our bathroom, plus solved a techy issue in our gaff which has negated the need for more painful and messy cabling. Made saganaki salad, half watching strictly (awful obviously).
Off to rugby tomorrow for a christening. Bought lots of the little ones pressies then bought them new pressies cause I wanted to keep them for Eva. Foolish.
what's better - an all black mandolin or a sunburst one?
There's a really cheap one that has decent reviews and it's on sale so even cheaper but I don't know which colour to go for (obvs the only important thing to me not knowing a thing about music)
sunburst instruments are ugly af
but then I thought it looked a bit cheap but loads of the reviewers on youtube were like 'oh and it's sunburst' like it was a good thing, so I didn't know. Didn't want to be shunned from the imaginary mandolin club I won't be going to.
black is best
It's down from like £70 to £38 and loads of reviews say it's really good to learn on and actually pretty good considering it's super cheap.
Pretty excited, don't even know how to play guitar though and I don't have an ear for music at all so no idea where to start.
don't know if they do left-handed versions though.
just realised this is only available on US sites so shipping isn't too bad but it's minus VAT so the actual end price is a bit out of budget. Pft. Is there such a thing as an instrument library where I can just borrow one??
Instrument library seems like a fun idea though!
I'll probably still get it but just going to keep looking for it elsewhere first, nothing online but maybe I'll go to some actual real life shops
and i dont know what to do.
- my contract ended july and a new contract was renewed to start from september
- i didnt get a payslip in my pigeon hole when every one else did, so presumably it's an error?
- when will (if) they find out and ask me to pay it back?
- why have they done this to me :( so confused
- i just want to keep it guilt free and spend it all :(
but don't spend it for a while and see what happens.
I once had a job interview, didn't get the job, a month later got a cheque for the first month's pay.
Obviously spent it straight away as didn't work there or have any loyalties to them/know them (they did realise eventually and chased it up once but I ignored the letter and they left me alone, probably so embarrassed they'd done it)
just incase they do ask it back- but i'm just wondering how long to leave it. If they haven't realised by the end of the financial year then they are clearly not on the ball and i can keep it. I know I should just ask someone in the bursary but i don't want to cos I know what the answer would be. CAN'T EVEN ENJOY IT.
Plus a month of someone at the top payscale.
I moved house soon after and left the job after six months but not before the council found me with a red letter threatening court proceedings unless I repaid them.
Obviously I had tried not to spend the money but failed. It took my two years to square it up.
I turned my laptop on to do a few things around 9pm, and it started to do some updates and then needed a reboot. still installing. hasn't frozen or crashed or anything, just taking forever. so I'm watching tennis instead. so many ugly ugly outfits in the US Open this year
with such stunning features as:
something to do with Cortana (switched off)
an update to Edge (i use Chrome)
ability to draw on screen (don't have a touch screen)
would have been nice if it had said "yeah this update will take 2 hours hope you have something to do while you wait lol" in advance, wouldn't have bothered til tomorrow
but i wish i was so i could just have a nice sleep
watching 'The Replacements' because two of my uni pals brought it along and insisted we watch. turn of the millenium American football film starring Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman. it's so bad :')
:'''''D ridiculous film. football, tho
at this time :(
my bean farts haven't even started yet. just huge discomfort.
so just put a big indian snack selection thing in the oven. absolutely ruined me somehow.
Was that he was in the bad books with his wife because he'd "kept her up all night" with massive farting following an Indian snack selection.
