There's a lot of vegans in the roller derby world. I once caused a massive stir at an event by having a white bread ham sandwich. :lol: 8)

People with crohn's are supposed to avoid brown bread entirely but that's not the point apparently. :rolleyes:

lel the vegan who went mental at me, does roller derby. She actually has a huge 'VEGAN' sticker on her helmet. Also has shaved head, shit tattoos, the lot :lol: It's amazing how subculture dictates your ethics

Edit: OK, now I feel guilty. *Insert sweary rant about friend's family deliberately guilting her into doing stuff we'd (*I'd*) planned with them instead, when they'd only spend the whole time being miserable anyway.*

Soooo I'm in limbo because the place I interviewed at last week hasn't gotten back to me yet, and I've had to chase, and their HR dept has had to chase people in turn. If I do get an offer, I'll have to wait another 2-4 weeks due to background checks so if I don't hear soon I'm just gonna go with the much better paying temp-to-perm job that starts Monday and take the risk with them. I've got a job one way or the other, which is something. Unless there's any hiccups with referencing and shit.

That lovely feeling when you get back to work after a long weekend to find a stack of work that needs doing.

Feeling a bit left out on this tour. All the other audio guys are a lot older, smoke a lot of weed etc. I'm really trying my best to socialise and get on with them.
I woke up 2 nights in a row to find they left the bus for the venue/hotel without waking me up, and they went out to a whiskey bar last night and didn't invite me. :(
I'm actually pretty low on confidence when it comes to new groups of people and have a constant fear of being annoying so I'm just sort of sat in my hotel room on my own feeling a bit miserable rn.

Splitting headache couple of hours ago, which has been replaced by just feeling physically pooped.


Also wish I had rejected tomorrows job. I think I will next time I get a Newcastle job. They have their dedicated Scotland and long distance lot in place, get those cunts to do it! Ill settle for the south east or Warrington/Doncasters thank you very much.

I told the tattooist i wanted it all in red, looked at my back when he'd finished and got this. Looks more like a leaf than a tree and its pretty cartoonish.

Marcela from Stream of Passion is helping me with some handwritten lyrics for my next one, will have to see if I can get this reworked or something at that point.

Bought a t shirt last night at a gig. Was very excited to find one in my size that wasn't shit. Get home to find the woman on the merch stand has given me a large instead of a small. I'm cursed to forever wear oversized t shirts.

I've somewhat involuntarily stopped on all medication due to the GPs being such a massive pain in the arse. I'm not anxious anymore without antidepressants, and I feel like a bit of me has been switched back on after feeling knocked out for the past few years, which is nice. However, I am back to feeling intensely how fucking annoying everyone is. I can't work out if this is my problem or theirs.

I gave some weights a go at the gym on Saturday and where I thought I had done really well to avoid post gym aches and pains, my arms don't work any more. I only did 25 reps on one piece of equipment as well. Not fair.
