Work was shit today, team leader was being an annoying cunt all day making what could have been simple cases solved by common sense into protracted dramas, and night shift turned up an hour late, so I didn’t get home until quarter past nine. Leave as the sun is coming up and getting back when it is setting in the middle of summer is not fucking fun.
HOWEVER, I walked past Christopher Eccleston on the way home and I smiled at him and he smiled back and it cheered me up no end.
Well I’m back on Sunday, but still TWO WHOLE DAYS OFF!
During which lots more sorting house stuff out (almost there now though!!!) and tomorrow i’m actually doing something for my upcoming birthday for the first time eva but because everyone sucks/isn’t in london atm it will probably have all the extravagance of a damp puddle but i’m making jello shots so if no-one else does turn up just more for me and David I suppose, awww yeahhh
After a much-publicized breakup, LCD Soundsystem may reunite—if only for one track. Frontman James Murphy told The New York Times that the group’s been asked to cover a song for an upcoming movie. The director, who Murphy won’t name, asked the group personally, and everybody “seems to want to do” it.
The only positives about today are that these LOCOG guys think I’m quite good, and everyone down at heathrow thinks I’m an x-ray god or something. Oh and I got away early because they’re so quiet down there and so had no need of me after 5. Hence why I’m on here finally getting some internet time. wo0o0o0.
Also all the people down at the Heathrow MSF are fucking misogynist cunts.
The manager has a wife and was going round showing everyone these dirty pictures he’d been sent by someone or other with all the usual ‘phwoarrrr’
On the way from hotel distaster to the MSF there was this woman cyclist in front of us and he went ‘look at that fine tooshie’ . Basically anytime he made reference to a woman it was as a sexual object.
Also one of the forklift truck drivers told me ‘Whenever I go out with my girl I get really violent you know and I don’t when I’m with my mates’, and i was just thinking ‘No, no I don’t know’
Then again MSF1 where I usually am isn’t much better.
Ultimate socially awkward penguin calamity moment today.
Due to a multitude of reasons, I ended up somewhere in the outskirts of heathrow, waiting for someone to pick me up and take me to a screening facility there, where they had no x-ray operator and so needed me (it was a fun first 15 minutes of work being told this), only to get there I had to hitch a lift with some of the night shift people going home to Slough from where I have been working, and yes anyway, there I was, and I really needed a piss, and didn’t know when I was going to be picked up. Now there was a hotel down the road, but, knowing what they’re like in central, i didn’t want to go in and get turned away for not being a customer, anyway I noticed this little opening in these big bushes, so I snuck in to relieve myself, only on my way out, I didn’t notice this emergency phone box thing, stood up too soon and whacked my head on it. Making a pretty big gash in my head. And so the blood started pouring. So I had to go to the hotel anyway looking like Carrie to receive first aid. And I had to tell them how i’d done it, and oh fuck that was embarrassing.
Working 12 hour shifts off the m11 is fucking tiring.
And when I get back, I have house moving stuff to do, so I can’t just relax.
The only me time I get is genuinely when I go to the toilet. It’s tragic.
Anyway this has been a ‘make the most of the internet’ post as we get chucked out our old place tomorrow, and our new one doesn’t have internet yet and won’t have until friday when I get a day off and am able to phone up o2.
Even on my day off I’ve already got a huge list of shit to do. This is why I don’t want a proper job when I’m older.
