So that's two 'secret' cocktail bars I know about in Bristol now. Red Light is dapper as fuck, total speakeasy stuff going on. Shame that despite me ordering a simple whiskey on the rocks, they took three times as long to get it to me than the people who asked for cocktails.

Probably because you sounded like a yank, mate. :P

Our waiter was a yank! He even said "is that on the rocks or straight?"

Take glass, pump on the optic, add ice. How could that take 3 times longer than making a cocktail (measure & pour spirit, measure & pour liquor, add sugar syrup, ice, shake, pour, garnish, tonnes more effort!)
Who the hell reads anything in sigs these days, unless it's an animated gif?

My mum somehow sensed that something was bringing me down, and so she texted me and we talked on the phone for a long while about stuff. It means so much to have someone to talk to, and for someone to reassure me that my way of thinking makes sense.

Only 3 days of work left at clappy j. Beyond excited to get the hell out of this shop. One lad has started making up shit and telling the manager to try and get me in trouble because he can't handle being told to do his job :lol: she believes me anyway, and he won't even look at me now because he's embarrassed or some shit. It's hilarious.

Went to look at a house last night, and it's perfect!
£300 pcm, has parking, my own bathroom, 5-10 min walk from the station and 10 min walk to a place I work quite often.
The three people living there are all lovely too and they have netflix. I really really hope they liked me and want me to move in :sniff:

I think I figured out what the "new" dinosaur is in the new Jurassic Park, considering we hadn't seen any of it in the previous trailer and the newest one seems to confirm my theory. Happy because I never work out stuff like this and I think I'm on to a good one here.

Cancelled my subscription with Specsavers and ordered from feelgoodcontacts. Same contact lenses, but saving £75 a year now!
I wish someone had told me sooner.

^ I need to do that. Also what is the most appealing is losing the twats in Boots trying to sell me a pair of glasses. They try all the tricks. I don't wear glasses ever. Why would I part with £100 (or more) to get a pair? I hate people that wont accept no and fuck off as answers.


Wmmht. in bed. Going to listen to music for a while and an early night on the cards.

One thing I would flag with those cheaper sites is make doubly sure that you're getting reputable contact lenses / good brand names and not cheap knock offs. Having spent a lot of time last year working with a contact lens company as my client, I heard a lot of infection-based hell from those kinds of sites.
