There's a charity event where taxis and buses take under privileged children to the coast and stuff. It passes my work and they all set off their horns and random sirens etc.

There are roadworks so they've been sitting there for the past 20 minutes giving me a cunt of a headache. Grumble etc.

Left work 10 minutes late as just before I left some bloke phoned up and started going on about his hedges.

Think I 'opened up' a little too much to my housemates last night, judging by a mildly condescending quip just earlier.

I've burnt my wrist, which is making wearing a watch really uncomfortable. Not wearing one or putting it on the other wrist is even more uncomfortable.

I just got congratulated by some pretentious dickbag from a dating site I was probably going to go on a date with for knowing who Eyehategod are. Unfortunately my somewhat passive aggressive response about them being pretty standard for the kind of stuff I'm into yet for some reason having a hipster following didn't go down too well.

I am going to be single forever.

Pretty much why online dating doesn't work for me.

It's not being a cunt. It's weeding out the morons before they waste your time.

Trying to goad anyone to The Farm for the Sunday roast is bloody difficult.

Probably not the best to try that sort of thing on Father's Day.

Very few people are actually seeing their old man though.

I'm finding it very hard to stick with this in its current layout. It's almost painful to attempt to read at times. Also, why on earth are quotes embedded within other quotes exactly the same colour backgrounds with no borders? It looks daft.

There was a big article and interview with Sophie Lancaster's mum in a Sunday supplement some months ago (Daily Express I think) and she had got some bloke to write a book about the tragedy. It ran over 2 pages and no-where was there any mention of BOA or the SL stage? (Weird layout btw- a bit primary school imvho)

There is absolutely no need for it to cost 17 euros for Kari Rueslatten to ship her new album on vinyl from Norway to here. I refuse to pay 37 euros for a non limited/hard to get hold of single LP

And I'll be in Holland when Anneke Van Giersbergen does a solo show in Holland, but it's several hours from Amsterdam, and I don't think it would be on to leave everyone the day after Stonehenge on a lads weekend to go to an acoustic pop show. Just gonna hope she plays with Devin on the Saturday. Kind of sucks as she does a completely different setlist for those kinds of shows, but never brings them to the UK, she always comes with rock shows.

Work.

I do something right the whole company gets praised, something fucks up beyond my control or jurisdiction and the blame and responsibility lands solely on me.

Bloody bus diversions in London too. having to leave for work 30 mins earlier to ensure I arrive on time.
