Did you fall for 9 continuous seconds then toss your snow scoop and storm away?
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

Id imagine he tossed his 'snow' afterwards if you know what I mean. His sticky warm snow.

I'm so tired/hormonal I just burst into tears at an RSPCA advert on the TV because there was a scruffy looking cat, seriously they shouldn't be allowed to show that stuff before midday on a monday.
Also pretty sure i've done some damage to my eyes, from passing out in my contact lenses on friday. 3 days now and it feels like i have a hundred eyelashes stuck in them, and daylight/phone/computer light is seriously painful. shit

I want to get a custom controller for my xbox (in green naturally) and I tried looking for this place today. Its based in Leeds and I so happened to get a day where I was working alone and going to Rothwell, post code took me to what I assume was a po box and not a shop with tonnes of brightly coloured controllers. Oh well, at least I didnt use my own fuel to look for it. Ill just wait until they have their exhibition at the August Insomnia.

There are some small, local(ish) gigs I want to go to but know they'll just be massive group ego wanking sessions. Very off-putting. Haven't been to a gig in ages and I don't think it's a coincidence.

So 300 euros just cost me £49 more than 6 months ago from the same place. Goddamn Brexit speculation. I was only going to get 250 this time, but the exchange rate was even worse if you got under 300.

Very excited for Netherlands Deathfest now though.

Oh nice ive got 105 Deutschmarks I can get rich quick with. I don't change money over and I often come back with a bit. I think I have about £70 of zl at home and that will do me for my next trip over.

Do gig beers produce a worse hangover or something? Or am I just old?


Maybe the shitty plastic cups?

Old workplace's final payslip doesn't look right, as I suspected. Then I'll query it and it'll turn out they are right and I just don't understand how adjustment periods work or some shit.

Got roped into some drama based on some nasty throwaway comments I made in a bad mood ages ago. I briefly pondered standing by them and just being one of those "I tell it like it is" bitches but I can't be a badass I feel terrible.

I've been pondering what rate I'm going to get at the atm in Dublin this weekend. I'm going to have to sit down next week and really research all the issues around this referendum. I'm going to be in a particularly weird situation of still being a UK national and having an EU passport simultaneously. So at least I won't have to use the loser queue at airports.

Really shouldn't have had that free coffee at the talk this morning. Still isn't out of my system. Didn't help that there was some drama in between the meeting and paintballing.
