Trivial grumbling: Our housemates have an annoying habit of hearing you sneak into the kitchen and charging in, putting their crap music on and taking up all the space making their very messy, elaborate meals for about 3 hours, complete with squealing and singing. I just want ten minutes to get something to eat in peace!


I'm the same with making small talk - I didn't go often enough for a hairdresser to know anything about my life and I just assume all they want to talk about is the latest reality show and who has knocked up Katie Price recently. Luckily i've managed to find a hairdresser who is a really camp gay man who just talks at me regardless of whether I will respond or not! We discussed cider last time.

Ha. That reminds me. Many, many years ago, my sister was horrified by the thought that I might keep my hair long when it started thinning. "Promise me you won't go for the balding Phil Collins/Francis Rossi look", she said. I refused :-) Yeah, I've lost a lot of it now. But I like long hair, so I'm keeping what's left of it.

I'd always wanted long hair ever since I was a wee kid. I can't say there won't be circumstances or a change of heart that'd make me cut it again but I do much prefer it this way presently, much as I am very aware about how it's perceived. Especially if you have a certain type of hair and/or face.

If I cut my hair now, I would instantly regret it and spend the rest of my years trying to rationalise my short hair as "always having suited me and should have cut it short years ago" all the while cursing and crying in the corner

Finding it incredibly difficult to get motivated in work at the moment.

Colleague is leaving in 2 weeks max (for a job I had an interview for a couple of months ago), although I know I'm getting a new team mate in the guy I sit next to already who is right lulz. Still, doesn't help with the chaotic situation at the moment.

Also I forgot my contents insurance is due for renewal mid Feb, which will eat the most of my savings next month. Think it's time to go to some comparison sites.

H&M thinks I want information about kidswear. Also I ordered 2 things today and both of them are going to be delivered by Hermes.

Our Hermes deliverer is hilarious. Yells at us every time. We've become quite attached.

Trivial grumbling: Made it over to Bradford in the snow all pumped up for my interview for it to be cancelled, despite several phonecalls on the way saying it was still on (although they were clearly trying to find any reason to get out of it). I wouldn't mind but even flipping Northern Rail was running uninterrupted, and they'll cancel for anything. Now I have to wait till the end of Feb, by which time I'll probably be applying for qualified jobs anyway. Only started this application in 2013...

The unfollow button works wonders for this. Between the recycling old posts via Timehop, a million post from the various "lad" pages, the idiots who reposted that "channel 730937" scam and generally people being fucking idiots I must have blocked half the people on my FB by now :lol:

I would delete FB if it wasn't the only way of keeping in touch with people in other countries and a lot of photography stuff being organized through private groups.
