i do the primitive form of 'promo' for a bar in hudds, which means a few of us have to be out and about in the streets 3-4 hours every wednesday, friday and saturday, also dealing with rude drunk people who still often throw abuse at you despite you giving them discount/free entry and stuff. its good when its warm/summer but absolutely horrid in winter. we sometimes even exit flyer for people leaving anywhere up to like 4am. its cold enough during the day, nevermind that time of night, but there is only so much clothing you can wear! i love the guys there and ive worked for them for ages and would be harsh to leave as no bugger else is daft enough to do it but its proper testing! a normal indoor/shop/office job seems so alien :lol:

Still in a foul mood, ear's still playing up, sobered up, can't sleep. Not even Power Quest is making a dent.
If it sounds good, listen to it

Took me ages to get to sleep, and then when I finally did sleep I got a spam of texts waking me up from the guy I was briefly seeing who now won't seem to leave me alone, and my cold is all of a sudden about ten times worse than it was yesterday. And I'm going to Newport today for some course rep thing. Today is not my friend.

still sick but can't afford to lose another day's pay. housemate says "at least it's friday." except i work saturdays, as i keep telling you when i can't sleep on friday nights due to your drunken shouting and constant fucking and fuckery. so friday is not the end of the week. friday is the agonising day before the last day of the week. fuck right off.

i think one could say i'm in a bad mood this morning.

The clinical director at work is a moron. Not sure whether I should bother telling her in a way that won't get me fired.

You can pick up cold weather baselayers that are pretty thin and discreet. I have tried a few different types for when I am expected to be mincing round some woods when it's freezing at 2 in the morning. I highly reccomend them.

Got a bitch of a hangover this morning...

*edit* I second the recommendation of a thermal base layer Gary. I bought a German army "extreme cold weather shirt" from an army surplus place for about 2 or 3 quid when I was working nights in a hotel with knackered heating when it was about -15 last year and it proper does the job, much more effective than some of the far thicker hoodies etc that I've got and far lighter.

That. Also, if there's anywhere near you sells ski gear, have a nosey there. Usually their thermal "under layers" are reasonable in price, and having skiied in -25C in them, I can definitely vouch for how great they are. :)

WPMOT: Had another funny turn and couldn't get up the hill into town to the card shop. There goes me going on my department's Xmas Do tonight too.

IT equipment fucking with me for its own amusement.
Also, I don't mind walking somebody through a task they've never done before. If they then go ahead and ignore what I just told them, I feel justified in being a tad unamused.

Continuing on from this, Primark do thermals for about a fiver. I was wearing them under my clothes last year when it was -7 during the day, and they kept me pretty damn toasty.
My house is so cold right now (even when we put the heating on for two hours) that I pretty much have to wear them under my pajamas. They're wonderful :D

WPMOT: I don't have a beard to keep my face warm. Curse being a woman.
