My dad. All he's done since I've got back from BOA is moan at me. Any bloody excuse.

Yes thank you for driving into me what a lazy fat layabout I am who does nothing all day except sleep and whos gonna get a heart attack when I'm older because I don't move and has no life whatsoever.
I feel really motivated to make the most of my day now thank you.

and then piss taking on top of that about who I go out with. (But this going out doesn't count as doing anything.. although I'm sure if I didn't I'd also get 'don't you have any friends to go out with? its because your weird and wear black')

fuckin moron. can no one be positive for once.

on a lighter note, hes gone to work now WAHOO!

In work learning about pensions for my new job role and it's so confusing. So many different types.
Stupid me wanting a more challenging role.

Oh well, back to the books.

Every job interview I've had this year, I haven't got the job. I have long hair. Coincidence?

You're doing it wrong. I got my job nae bother and they don't even make me tie it back.

A bloody good riff and melody I was just working on in Anvil failed to save properly and disappeared into the ether. I can't find a word strong enough.

In fairness I think blaming hair inst really realistic, I've never had it be a problem, as long as you tie it back and look respectable at the interview they will hardly ever care, its worth asking after you've found out you haven't got the job why it is they didn't think you were suitable, often they'll give you a few pointers, but I very much doubt it will ever be down to your hair.

There are still people around who think that long haired men are either gay or thugs. Unfortunately some of them are employers. TBH if they are that anal would you want to work for them in the first place?

What pissed me off today? My cable that runs from the aerial to my Tv is knacked so no magic box.
