Really struggled to get to sleep for some reason. Now I've slept for about 2 and a half hours and I have a long day. Bleh

Considering a career change to an agricultural agent so I can get paid a lot of money to be utterly incompetent and disorganised and everyone will just think that is normal. :x

Sounds like you want a job in project management!

Pissed off at myself but after a month of not going to the gym I am cancelling my membership on Friday, possibly go to a cheaper gym which is a bit closer but I don't see me going back to my current one.

A friend of mine (who at the time was a project manager) described the job as being very simple: ask people what they need to do to get the project done and then tell them to do it.

Just found out I just paid £40 for the gym I want to cancel today... For fuck sake. I could have done without that going out too, as I definitely won't be going there this month.

Can't believe people can get away with charging £600/day to do that.

Actually, I can.

was real proud of myself for losing the 3kg only to put it on again in under 5 days on holiday. I've not worn any of my nice summer clothes this year and now i gotta diet again! argh

Trying to book a hotel for Damnation and despite the Premier Inn website making a massive deal about paying in advance, the site won't let me because my card expires a month before we are actually staying there! It's valid now dammit!

You've probably thought of this but try Ibis Budget if you're outta luck. Failing that, there's multiple Premier Inns and Travelodges. Joe and Cait are staying in the Marriott Hotel I think.

I'll just get Joe to book the hotel as hopefully his card expires after November. Actually getting him to do it will be the difficult part though...

I did look at the Marriott - it has a swimming pool and a gym which is pretty fancy. We'll be up on the Friday too - meal is a good plan. I assume one of the Damnation veterans knows some good food places.

I really don't you know, I just eat at Deli Kate's on the day of Damnation. Me and Tim will arrive around mid day. Just promise me we don't do the after party and we go dry dock or somewhere else.
