Only in London, it's so cheap sometimes i just get a taxi because I can't be bothered to wait for the train. I don't know how they make any money :?

WPMOT: Doing the Labour party conferences for a week. I have been trying so hard to like Labour, I really want to like them.
I think Jezza is a top decent guy... but the policies.... so far it's just been essentially 'Well the Tories are shit and we want to make sure refugees and disabled people have a better time over here'.
Nothing they say applies to me or the people around me it seems, apart from re-nationalising the railways and sorting out the gender pay gap, I think it's low brow to just bash the opposition instead of talking about your own aims, just can't get on board :(
I was really hoping a week of listening to these MP's talk about the changes they want to make would make me excited, but literally, so far, it's just made me more frustrated.

Thought it had been rolled out in Birmingham but I didn't read what it was all about. Still rather use trains where possible. Saw the last Shirley train disappear into the distance. Last Solihull train is about 10 minutes later apart from on the day I wish to use it then it doesn't exist.

You didn't hear about the London cabbies throwing a strop because Uber was undercutting them?

Uber is one of those things that just makes sense. What's the point of dedicated taxis services when every other fucker on the road has three or four seats free in their car and wouldn't say no to a bit of petrol money?

Well Uber is a proper taxi firm. The company is based in Switzerland or something though as a massive tax dodge which is why it's so cheap

Welp, tomorrow is back to work. It's been a good long run but I'm dreading what kind of mess there'll be for me to clean up and other unpleasant surprises.

Guy whose stag do I am going to in October was telling me over a spot of World of Tanks that only 10 people have paid for the paintballing and he's put a deposit down for something like 25. Which is shit because I have paid for two of them...myself and another chap. Did that about 24 hours after I got the message too. Feel bad for him really. Suppose he has another month to get a few more but he did stipulate to pay before yesterday in the email.

People are dicks like that. It sucks! People are "yeah, yeah, I'm up for that" and when it comes to paying they do one.

Tinfoil? A step in the right direction, but woefully inadequate. I'm working on a stainless steel hat now!

There's not much I can add. Airport security is a ridiculous joke that doesn't even address the actual threats. Schneier summed it up pretty well when he pointed out that only three things have improved security since 2001 - locked and reinforced cockpit doors, passengers now realizing they need to fight back when something happens and sky marshals. And the jury is very much still out on the latter.

And yes, it's not about security, it's about control[1]. And if you don't believe that these arbitrary and ineffective restrictions on your freedom will seep into your everyday life, you're very naïve.

[1] I don't believe there's some grand illuminati-like plan for controlling the world's population. But still, there's someone pushing for these things, even when everyone agrees they don't work.

Wanted confirmation on my dissertation project about a month before term started to get a head start but still waiting. Tried getting in touch a few times to responses of "Before semester starts". Still waiting and they're ignoring my emails. Sigh.

knackered. Gotta miss the after conference fun tonight to drive back to London, ready for a 6am start, followed by an overnight job, and then another day job. 40 hours without sleep, wheey.

Colleague who is leaving in a week is being an absolute cunt. Seriously just fuck off, she's spent the past month making my work life incredibly difficult by not doing shit that needs to be done because she doesn't care anymore.

My dad acting like a fucking child. He got a bullshit traffic fine which I think is highly suspect. I have been using my evening to tell him he should appeal it...I mean from the grainy black and white photograph we've been given we can't even tell if he's driving this car, he fucks off in a strop because he wants to relax. I have driven over 80% of todays total miles between us where he's been the passenger and he wants to relax? So fuck him, be £135 out of pocket. Sorry for caring. He can be a right cunt sometimes.

Fucking fuming.

Someone I regarded as a great great friend and in such high regard has basically fucked me off over the last few months. I asked him today, why? Have I done something? No, he's just randomly decided he doesn't want to fucking know me anymore.

I don't mind people not liking me, but when it's someone you were very close to, and some one who I've done so fucking much for - to be fucked off and tossed aside for no reason really takes the fucking piss.

Where's my old bloody account gone?!

I had that happen to me once, then I slowly realised I was better off because she was actually completely insane and not really a very nice person deep down.
Don't worry, it's their loss, as much as it may feel like yours at the moment.
