Nothing Really Matters

Hello everyone - hope your ok??

I found out today that woman who snapped at me on Friday does pantomines.  This year she's playing a housekeeper but usually she's casted as the bad guy (can't think why??  ) LOL so from now on if I refer to her I'm gonna call her the Wicked Witch from the North (or if I'm feeling rather lazy just Wicked Witch *cackle cackle*

It wasn't such a great day today!!  The secret santa thingy's were handed round.  There was some confusion as to whether my name was in the hat or not.  I started thinking I shouldn't really take part as I've only been there for 5 days how can I get someone a funny present as I don't even know them.  Before I could protest though it was too late and I had to pick a name.  So I did and it's a bloke that I'm not even sure if I've met.........arrrrggghhhh!!!!!! So now I'm trying to keep an eye on the security tags that everyone has to wear.  They have your name and a photo on them!  (That photo in all about me comes from mine)  Still most of the blokes in that office seem to be into football (they're all doing the fantasy football thing) and drink (the alcoholic kind).  I'm sure I'll come up with something

The land lady came round, she looked in each of the rooms, explained how the heaters worked (last time she told me was in August and how am I supposed to remember now!) and then left!!  All that cleaning for nothing!!

My best mate (whom I shall refer to as T from now on) started her new job today.  I sat there thinking about how she was getting on and felt jealous.  I don't know why, I just figured she would be getting on better than me and probably made friends already!  Still why should I care?  I'm only there for 6 months if they don't like me - tough coz the manager does   (Thanks for the messages Brett and Cal I know your right there is someone like that in every office - I always seem to learn the hard way).  I think T got on alright though!!  Bless her!

Well I shall leave you here!!  Did any of you read Ghwt9996 (otherwise known as Gary) bizarre story yesterday?  LOL it was cool!  I would say that coz it featured me ha ha.......Funny thing was I couldn't remember playing santa's slingshot doh!!

Bye for now peeps

A plain ol' update from little ol' me!!

Hiya everyone how's ya doin'?

There ain't much to tell you!  Today I've been to see mum and my sister Megan.  It's her birthday this week and she'll be 7!  I can still remember my brother telling me mum had, had her!  I was working at a supermarket at the time on the checkouts and I had a telephone call.  I cried lol - (I can't believe I'm telling you this!)  See the thing was though, that apparently my brother had tried to contact me the previous night, but had received no response!  I can remember that was because my best mate and I were arguing :-(!!  The next day I went to see mum in hospital, and we were taken into the maternity ward and all the mum's had gone for lunch.  All the babies were by the beds and I walked past my little sis!  My best mate found her......awwww she was so cute! I can't believe she's 7 this week.  I love spending time with her now she's older, I can have a right laugh with her and a proper conversation.  It's great fun going to visit them!  During the summer we were playing games like piggy in the middle and hide and seek!  It was a good laugh!

I had a good time today.  As soon as Meggy saw me she ran up and gave me a hug.  When she was little she used to shy away so you can see the transformation!  We went shopping  had something to eat  Meggy visited father xmas then we went home and played some games (they weren't really computer games but you get my jist right lol)

I've noticed my cold feels a bit better, I can actually breath through my nose   Touch wood!!

Did anybody see the X-factor?  I can't actually beleive I watch it but that's a whole different subject altogether!!  What about G4's take on Queen's Somebody to Love?  I rang my bestmate coz I had a feelin' she was gonna agree with Simon Cowell and say it was crap (she usually does), but her first word was awesome!!  (oooo Roger's bit on the cd I'm listening too.....if you watch the video they show a shot of me and my best mate as he comes onto the stage lol)!!  Anyway I thought it was quite good!!  Also has anyone seen Electric Six's version of Radio Ga Ga?  The song doesn't sound that bad, I just don't know what to make of the video!! 

On another note, yesterday at work I had to ask this lady something and so I did and she said, 'did you check the view and vary?' and I was like, 'no' and she replied 'well if you did you would've noticed it was fine.'  The way she said that was quite cutting, I mean give me some slack I've only been there for four days!  Later my boss came over and asked how I thought I was doing, I said that I thought I was doing ok, and she replied saying I was brilliant - not bad huh??

God these entries are getting longer!!  Sorry folks.  Oh!  One last thing, apparently my ex-line manager rung my mate the other day to find out if I'd got the job he'd had to write the reference for.  When she told him I had, he was apparently very pleased for me!!  Bless him!

Anyway I shall leave you here for now, I have to clean the flat properly tomorrow as the landlady is coming round on Monday arrrrrgggghhhhhhh......Bye 4 now.........

Give me sympathy pleaseeeee........

Hi everyone - hope your all ok?

Well I'm now on my 3rd day at work and I am feelin' ill!!    (Already - I'm on the lemsips!! - don't you just hate it when you get to the end of the mug when your drinking them? I do!!)

Let's rewind anyway coz I didn't come on line last night, otherwise I would've updated then, so I shall do it now instead lol


It wasn't so bad at work.  Walked there in the morning.  To get there I have to walk around the river and yesterday it was beautiful.  I only wished I'd had my camera on me to share it with you guys.  There was mist and a beautiful sunshine  it made walking an absolute joy :-) Anyway work wasn't too bad, I felt a bit better about it than Tuesday.  People were talking to me more and I was in a good mood anyway coz I was going out that night ;-)  So when I finished work my mate and her boyfriend drove me home and my mate stayed the night, coz we were going to see a band.

It was quite funny coz we had expected to pay to see this band, coz we'd read somewhere they were charging 2quid to people.  This annoyed us coz the last time they played in our area, we'd found out too late and it was FREE!!  So my mate reckons we should get there early, so the taxi drops us off at about 7.30pm.  We go in and there's hardly anybody there!  This pub is situated right next to the college so you can imagine what it's like very studenty!  So we get a drink and sit down.  By 8pm no band starts up but there's now someone sitting by the door.  We watch this person and anytime someone tried to come in this bloke was asking them for the money lol   Looks like my mate was right in getting there early, especially as the drinks weren't cheap grrr..........

The first band some support band called zubronic (I think!! The lead singer had pink hair,) came on at 9pm.  Thank god me and my mate were thinking coz by now the pub was filled and people had joined us at our table.  In fact you wouldn't even have thought that we were there before them!!  The support band were all right even though I couldn't really hear what the woman was singing!

Eventually at 10pm the Wire Daisies came on   They were really good (if you get a chance go and see them!)  I was dead impressed!!  Anyway their lead singer used to sing solo and about 5 years ago me and my mate saw her support Roger T.  We caught 7 of those shows and my mate was convinced she was gonna recognise us.  But I wasn't so sure, but when she went to say hello I went with her :-)  So my mate got her attention and said 'You don't remember us do you?' (she was laughing at the time or is it giggling nervously?)  and Treana (the singer) turned round and looked rather puzzled at my mate and said 'vaguely', then when she looked at me she felt a bit more positive.  (I still wasn't convinced) and she had a chat and gave us both a hug (awwww........)  Still it was a good night :-)


Everything was okay at work even though I'm feelin' ill!  I didn't sleep much last night and then my cold gets worse during the day.  Tomorrow even though I've only been there 3 days my team is gonna be leaving me on my own tomorrow afternoon.  Thank heavens my phone is barred :-)  Also even though I've only been there 3 days (deja vu?) I've signed up for the xmas meal and secret santa.  Hey it'll be a good way to get to know my fellow colleagues!

Not much else has happened coz I've been trying to get up to speed with my emails and my fave message board!  Isn't it a pain when your not around for a while?  Anyway I've finished me lemsip so I better go to bed now.  Don't forget to wish me luck for tomorrow and give me sympathy.............

Take care everyone

Day One

Thanks for the messages again guys :-)

Well today was day one in my new post.  I decided to walk to work as it was such a nice day and I still got there early   First thing I had to do was be given my pass for the building.  Last time I worked there, there were keypads on the doors, but ever since apparently someone stole something they've now got these stupid little cards that you flash against the door and hope that it beeps.  It seems I have done that twice but yet the door may have already been opened - marvellous.  I'll learn I hope!

The people seem friendly.  I was introduced to the whole room.  It took me nearly all day just to learn who was sitting on the table opposite me .  The team leader took me through the systems and showed me how to do certain jobs, which didn't seem too bad.  A lot to learn for one day though.  Names of people, names of systems and which ones they use, names of stuff they do!  Eeeeeekkkkkkk!!!!!!!!

Lunchtime came and nobody went anywhere.  Well from the group I'm with anyway!  I didn't know what to do so I went for a walk and ate my lunch whilst I walked.  Perhaps tomorrow I may just eat my lunch at my desk as that seems to be what everyone else does.  Especially if is   Don't you just love these smileys :-)

This afternoon I did a LOT of filing.  My back was killing me by the end of the day.  Their filing system has no system to it whatsoever!  Hopefully tomorrow I may do something a bit more interesting but I know I have filing waiting for me in the morning.

My shyness has come on board though.  I'm finding it hard to start a conversation.  I should cut myself some slack though as I went with a sore throat, it was my first day and I ended up with toothache.  Plus I didn't have any tea during the day arrrrrrgggghhhhhh............. I can't say I feel estactic about going back, but at least it's a job.  I'll just have to find my feet and hopefully I'll get on ok.  Apparently the departmental manager hasn't been there for very long either.  Nor has the bloke sitting opposite me!

Ooooo that reminds me I asked them (with all my cheek) why they decided to offer me the job.  At the time I didn't think it was that bad, and that I had a right to know, but now I'm a bit embarrassed about it to be honest.  What a way to make an impression, you berk!!  Anyway the lady I asked said that they liked me and that was why!  According to her my test score was ok, I got a few right and a few wrong.  I got the impression I didn't do very well on the percentages as she went on about them for the next few

Well I think that's it for today!  I'm feeling tired so I think I should go to bed early this evening!  Speak to you all soon, hope you had a good day by the way :-)

Ok I will share a joke with you guys, aren’t you pleased??


Two blonde guys were working for the city works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest, one guy digging a hole, the other guy filling it in again.

An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, "I'm impressed by the effort you two are putting into your work, but I don't get it -- why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?"

The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, "Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally a three-man team. But today the guy who plants the trees called in sick." <o:p></o:p>


Speak to you soon J

Starting to feel Nervous


Hello peeps, well after yesterdays rather annoying little incident I thought I would try again!!  I'm feeling rather nervous today as I start my new employment tomorrow, I wouldn't say I was worried but I'm getting there lol....eeek!!  I'm sure I'll be fine, as long as I feel confident I'm sure I'll pull it off, and anyway how bad can it be on the first day? God knows, but I'll let you know hopefully tomorrow :-)  Plus I think I'm getting a sore throat not a good way to start!

Anyway the pics.  Thought I would share some with you :-)  That way you can a little more about the person who tries to write this thing!

Pets  I've recently put a few pics on a messageboard of pets so I thought why not add them here too

1) Sooty - our first pet.  Bless him, all I can remember about him though is when he used to scratch me!!  And when he died :-(

2) Sweep the Yorkshire Terrior - It was up to me to name him so you can blame me lol He's alive and kicking and lives with mum.

3) When I lived with my mate we decided to get a pet.  In a house of 7 cats, we had to be careful what we chose.  So we can home with a hamster and we called him Spike.  Bless him, I miss him too :-(  He often went down the stairs in his ball and ran into the cats whilst he was in it, but he didn't care.  He had a good temper and never bit anyone!

4) Fat cat.  He was my mates dads cat.  When I moved in he would often come and sit on my lap and kinda adopted me.  He would often be found on my bed.  R.I.P to him too :-(

5) They don't allow animals where I live at the mo, but I saved enough to get Sylvester yay lol he's made himself at home on the sofa :-)

6 & 7) Well someone left a comment saying it was about time you saw my ugly mug so there you go twice :-)  Hope you haven't fainted with shock!  In pic 6 that's not a spot by the way lol It had to happen to me didn't it lol

Well I won't post the joke coz this is probably turning into a long entry.  Hope you enjoy it and thanks for visiting (ooo that was close I thought it had frozen again arrrrrggghhhh........)

Sunday, 21 November 2004

Well that's it I've had it!!  I was just updating my journal with pics and everything and then what happens........yep you guessed it the computer crashed. I'm not doing it again, well not tonight anyway.  You'll all have to wait until tomorrow now lol

I've even lost the joke I was gonna paste for you.  Oh well here's something for you.  I like this perhaps you will and perhaps you won't!  Turn your speakers on

Maybe you'll get a better update tomorrow if I feel better about it grrr..........well I'm off to bang my head against a wall!

Wednesday, 17 November 2004


Hi again guys.  Well as you may have guessed yep the bed turned up.  I figured as this journal was started about my new life coping with things on my own, i thought I would photograph my progress and show you :-)

1) there's the two bases - yep I had to put them together. At least I had managed to get the covers off.

2) The mattress - it was blocking my window something had to be done about that.

3) The two bases again just to prove that I did have to put them together.

4) Arrrrghhhhh screws, wheels and bracket thingys with no instructions.  I know what I had to do with the wheels but how do the bases fix together.

5) Aaaaaahhhhh like that!  Figured it out :-)

6) Got the mattress away from the window. Looks quite big.

7) The end product.  I'm so proud that not only did I manage to put it together myself, I also got the single bed I had been sleeping on into the living room on my own.  When I moved in it took two people to get that single bed into the bedroom lol *smug grin*

Also I had another reason to feel good about myself today.  I was cancelling some interviews that I'd been offered and one of the places asked me that if I ever see them advertise again to apply.  They were very impressed with my application - wow *smugger grin*

Looking forward to tomorrow I'm going to lunch with J :-)

For tea this evening I cooked myself Shepherds Pie.  Actually for all you cooks out there I have a question for you.  If I was to reheat it tomorrow and there was some left, would it be ok to keep it in the fridge and reheat it again on Friday or what?  Please let me know I'm useless when it comes to this kinda thing.

Computer just chucked me off when I was chatting to someone don't you just hate it when that happens!

Oh and I've also learnt what a CHAV is (;-) thanks stu)!!

Lets see is there anything else to tell ya - nope don't think so!!


No joke just found this picture which I like :-)  Waiting for my bed to be delievered.  Don't you just hate it when you wait in ALL morning and the alloted time comes and goes and still nothing...............



by the way thanks for the comments about me job!  Very nice of you all thank you

Joke 2

I have to laugh at this programme they're currently showing Pontins in Southport.  They used to have the Queen conventions there but stopped coz they started selling beer in plastic cups. The chalets used to have ants all over the place too.  Anyway here's another joke for you guys :-)


Where's Goldilocks?

It's a sunny morning in the Big Forest and the Bear family is just
Baby Bear goes downstairs and sits in his small chair at the table. He
into his small bowl. It is empty!

"Who's been eating my porridge?" he squeaks.
Daddy Bear arrives at the table and sits in his big chair. He looks
into his
big bowl. It is also empty!

"Who's been eating my porridge?" he roars.

Mummy Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and
yells, "For Pete's sake, how many times do we have to go through this?
"It was Mummy Bear who go up first.
"It was Mummy Bear who woke everybody else in the house up.
"It was Mummy Bear who unloaded the dishwasher from last night and put
everything away.
"It was Mummy Bear who went out into the cold early morning air to
fetch the
"It was Mummy Bear who set the table.
"It was Mummy Bear who put the cat out, cleaned the litter box and
cat's water & food dish.

"And now that you've decided to come down stairs and grace me with your
presence.... listen good because I'm only going to say this one more
haven't made the @#*% porridge yet!!"

Just a Joke

Well I've decided not to post so much of an entry as I did yesterday.  Sorry about that people. A lot happened what can i say lol........Anyway I start work next Tuesday (they're taking up my refs, which should be fine). At the moment I'm going through a lot of emails that I transferred from an account to my yahoo account.  If I come across any good ones I think I may post them up here.  Anyway I came across this one.....

Enjoy :-)

Revenge of the Blonde

A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long
from LA to NY.

The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun
The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely
and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists,
saying that the game is really easy and a lot of fun.

He explains how the game works: "I ask you a question, and if you don't
the answer, you pay me, and visa-versa."

Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep.

The chauvinistic lawyer figures that since his opponent is a blonde he
easily win the match, so he makes another offer:

"Okay, how about this "If you don't know the answer you pay me only
$10, but
if I don't know the answer,
I will pay you $100."

This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring that there will be no
to this torment unless she plays, she agrees to play the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth
the moon?"

The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches in to her purse, pulls out a
ten-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill
three legs, and comes down with four?"

The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop
computer and searches all his references. He taps into the Airphone
with his
modem and searches the Net and even the Library of Congress.
Frustrated, he
sends E-mails to all his co-workers and friends he knows. All to no

After over an hour, of searching for the answer he finally gives up. He
wakes the blondeand hands her $100.

The blonde politely takes the $100 and turns away to get back to sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little frustrated, wakes the blonde and
"Well, so what IS the answer?"

Again without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the
$10, and goes back to sleep.

Oh dear lord!!  Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions on Friday.  I think I better update!  I had two interviews so I had to get up early and caught the GMTV news at around 8am.  Of course the UK Music Hall of Fame thingy happened the night before so they showed clips of that.  There was Brian with his other half, and he was interviewed, then the reporter annnounced who the winners were.  Yes they did it - Queen are in WOOHOO...........(my voting helped lol) so I started thinking what a good way to start off the day!

My first interview was for a finance post, which I didn't really like the sound of but my best mates bloke had worked with the team and had raved about how lovely they are!  First thing a test.  arrrrrggggghhhhhhh...........I'm crap with numbers at the best of times!  Anyway 15 minutes that, missed one question out and didn't finish it, but then the interview.  Wasn't too bad, I fluffed it a couple of times and had no idea what they were talking about the other times lol.  So I came away thinking nah there's no way they'd take me on, but they told me they'd let me know by the end of the day. 

After that interview went to town, wanting to spend money but my conscience came into play and wouldn't let me.  This goes back to the day of living with my ex.  He always lectured me about spending money and how we didn't need any more CD's coz we've got enough and we don't need any more videos coz we don't watch the ones we've got.  After he did that I had it in my head that if I brought anything I would get a lecture when I got home, so now I just don't buy anything unless I am desperate!!

Eventually went on to my next interview.  I was quite interested in this one, till I found the office.  They are based on one of the industrial estates and down one of those lanes that you think is leading no where.  Not very practical for me considering I can't drive!  Went inside got shown what they do and the system, then had my interview.  Wasn't bad, quite relaxed, did a silly thing by mentioning I was a Queen fan.  (Why? I hear you ask.  They wanted to know if I have any hobbies - *shakes head* never mind!)

Came out of the interview and went to see my best mate as she works about 2 minutes up the road.  Her office is cool and the people seem ok.  She's only got another 2 more weeks and then she's moving on to her new job.  Anyway whilst I was in there I felt really emotional.  I haven't gotten over Wednesday and how I won't see the gang again, and I was feeling torn about what to do if these jobs get offered to me.  I still hadn't heard about the one I went for on Wednesday.  Eventually calmed down (that makes me sound like I was hysterical but I wasn't ;-) ) and went to catch the bus home.

Looked at my mobile and I'd missed a call, do I ring them back? nah let them call me!  On the bus just pulling out, my mobile goes and it's a lady from the first interview.  She asks if the other lady had contacted me and I said no.  She said apparently this other lady had asked her to call me to let me know the job's mine if I want it and to put me out of my misery for the weekend.  Stunned is not the word for it!!  I accepted and they said they'd ring back Monday for full details.

The other place rang back and although I interviewed well I didn't get it.  *phew* lol.........Get home and I have 3 letters and my Walkers walk-o-meter waiting for me.  1 letter was from the place on Wednesday I didn't get it.  1 was from the Uni saying I was a reserve candidate for interview and they were taking up refs.  The other letter had offered me an interview for next week. Arrrrrggghhhhh.........  My best mate and her bloke arrived then to take me out for a meal.  It was nice but I paid for it lol

Later my nan rings.  Apparently my Great Uncle died and his funeral took place this week.  I couldn't believe it - what a way to end a day.  My thoughts are with my aunty but I know at least this ended his suffering as he had parkinsons.  It really makes me think about my Nan though and how I must go and see her before it's too late.  I managed to get my aunty a lovely card yesterday with the words Special people become a part of who we are and our lives are richer for it.

So there you go!  On Saturday I had another job interview come through the post.  So out of eight applications I had 5 interview offers.  Not bad huh?  But I've got a job now, working where I wanted woohoo.......Back to where it all started which is quite freaky, same corridor and everything!  I can't believe it's finance though.  I must have bluffed my way through that interview coz they've taken a chance.  I'll try and find out what my test score was I think.  I can only guess that the other person must have done really badly.  Either that or because the post is temporary they didn't wanna know.  But I'll be working for the next 6 months so that can't be bad can it?

oh woh is me!

Last night for the first time since I moved in by myself I cooked Chilli Con Carne.  It didn't turn out too badly (apart from the fact most of it stuck to my pan grrrr.....) but I wasn't all that hungry by the time it was done so that wasn't very good.  I've finished it off tonight and it was rather nice   :-)  Not sure if I'll do it again though.

Today I've had an interview.  It didn't go to badly and the people who interviewed me seem very nice and quite funny.  The job didn't sound all that great though, a bit like an office scivvy but at the end of the day do I really get much choice?  They said they would let me know by the end of the week.  The only thing it's got going for it, is that it's not far from home which means I could continue cycling to work :-)  As I was coming back home on the bus it hit me (again) how I wouldn't be working with my colleagues EVER again.  That saddened me!!  I still feel quite sad now and can't think of a way to cheer myself up.  I have more applications that need to be completed.  Grrr.....

My ex rung a few minutes ago.  I don't wanna talk to him, yet I always feel bad when he rings and I don't sound all chirpy!  Why should I?  I'm so much better without him, even if sometimes I don't think I am!!  Ugh - Life!!

I'm gonna go and meet one of my ex-colleagues for lunch tomorrow! Perhaps I shall have to partake in an alcoholic drink and some chips with mayonaise - I hope she doesn't pull out on me.  I noticed that the company are advertising!!  Anybody going to reply to the ads I have one thing to say DON'T DO IT!! muha ha ha ha ha (evil laugh)

I've just had one of those pleasure deserts from Danone (I think!) and eugh it's left a rather nasty after taste in my mouth.  There's a good advert for them (yes I am being sarcastic ha ha ha........)

Did anyone see Teachers on Channel 4 last night? It was really funny lol Here's what happened:  They were having a gay/lesbian awareness week in the school and one of the boy students told one of the blokes that he fancied him.  So to get this boy of the sent he first said there was no way in hell he would have sex with him.  This didn't work coz the teacher started to feel guilty.  So the next day he went up to the kid and told him to think of someone famous that he could model himself on.  So the kid thought of Ian Mcellan and Will Young.

  Next day he turns up wearing a yellow jacket, tracksuit trousers and a moustache.  ie Freddie LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  I don't know why I found this soooooooo funny.  I guess it was coz it was the last thing I was expecting.  For the rest of the episode he walked around school dressed as Freddie.  Sorry had to share that with you.   Well I hope your all ok?!  I'm off to try and find something that'll cheer me up :-)

Damn Yahoo!!

Well here I am two weeks into unemployment.  I've sent off 9 applications now and am waiting to hear back from these lovely people.  (Flattery - wonder where it'll get me lol)

My mate came down on Saturday and she brought two of the dustbin liners that are holding some of my stuff in her attic.  Now I have the room to store it we figured it was about time to go through it.  Wow, talk about memories in there.  I've been reading through my old diaries.  The best one has to be from 1988.  Let me give you an example of an entry:

(Picked a page at random) Thursday 14 January 1988.  Amie asked if I could go to her house but I couldn't.

Talk about riveting stuff lol Trust me it doesn't get much better than that.  It's also been great to see all my other stuff.  Still no sign of the blasted drumstick.  (Don't get me started on that thing!)

Well not much else has happened in my humdrum existence.  Something embarrassing happened to me yesterday.  My mate rung and told me the gym was closed coz some poor bloke died there about 2 weeks ago and it was his funeral yesterday.  So we decided that we'd get some booze (on a monday how shocking!) and have some food until her bloke decided he wanted to leave work and would come and pick her up.  So off I trundle to the Spar shop (we'd finished all the booze I had in on Saturday).  Picked up some bottles and queued at the till, needless to say I was stuck behind the person who holds the queue up.  Suddenly it strikes me that if he asked for ID I haven't got any.  So what did he do when I got to the till?  Asked for ID.  I told him I'm 27.  He said I don't look it and wouldn't serve me without ID. 

I couldn't believe it.  I knew I was in a no win situation and left the shop to meet my mate.  But I still can't believe it now.  From now on I shall buy booze with my weekly shop.  How do you make yourself look 27?  Am I really supposed to carry one of those godforsaken ID cards with me for the rest of my life?

Anyway enough of my moaning ..........nope hang on there is something else!  What is up with Yahoo Mail it keeps chucking me out?  Blasted thing I wanted to read some jokes.  Ooooh just tried it and it worked - there's a miracle lol (easily pleased ha ha ha.......)

Hope your all ok!  :-)

Ahhhh...the un-employment life!

Well what a great day I had on Friday!  I tell you this unemployed lark is turning out to be good fun ha ha ha....... One of my ex-colleagues decided we should have a day out.  She took Friday off and we trundled off for the day.  (She's still working at the old place at the mo!  She's telling us some horrific stories, actually they're really funny and I'm soooooo relieved that I don't work there no more lol)

When we got there she decided she wanted breakfast so we sit outside one of the cafes by the harbour.  The weather wasn't bad, but not as nice as Thursday.....Then after brekkies we went for a walk by the marina and decided which boats we wanted with our non-existant lottery win.

J had to do some shopping so we moved into town and she brought a few bits and pieces (including underwear lol)  We had then agreed to meet up with another ex-colleague who hadn't made it to the friday night celebrations as he was on hols at the time.  Anyway met up with S in the pub and he decided a while later that as he hadn't come out with us on Friday he was gonna treat me & J to lunch, fair enough who am I to complain ha ha ha......  So we move to another pub.

It was a nice lunch and afterwards S decides to have a look at what J's been spending her money on.  He pulls this red thong out of her bag, held it up in the middle of the pub.  I was laughing so much, J was rather embarrassed.  Luckily we were in a gay pub so none of the other punters seemed to mind.  Later S rung his partner and he was apparently on his way home and S agreed to meet him in another pub.  He asked us if we wanted to join him - why not I have no commitments to get home for :-) - so we did!

G turned up and we all had another drink and a good gossip session, then he asked to see what J had brought.  She said no trying to snatch the bag from him, but I managed to get it and passed it over to him (god I'm evil muha ha ha)  He also took out one of the thongs and held it up for everyone to see.  J was mortified especially when G put it on his head.  Damn I wish I had a camera lol..............Turns out G has a camera phone but he doesn't know how to use it, so he passes it over to me!  Anyway more gossiping followed when eventually G & S decide it's time to go home.  J decides she must visit the toilet again so off she trundles.  G & S decide to get J's bag again and both of them put a thong on each of their heads.  I'm laughing so much but managed to capture photos of this.  One each of them on their own and then together (the latter I saved as the wallpaper on his phone lol)  The other punters turn round, laughing as much themselves and said 'suits you sir'.  J comes back out and is once again mortified.  It's such a laugh!

J suddenly spots G's car keys on the table and sticks 'em down her shirt.  Once we get outside, we realise he's left his lights on the muppet.  Anyway J turns to him and says 'Haven't you forgotten something?' his reply was 'no'.  So she asks if he's got his car keys.  Of course he hasn't and S suddenly realises J's got them.  J says to G if he wanted them he had to get them out with his teeth.  G is so embarrased there was no way he was gonna get them.  S dived in and was there for at least 5 minutes in this quiet back street with me and G in fits of laughter.  Apparently this woman came to look what was going on out her window, I'm really not surprised it was quiet before we came out lol. 

It was a good laugh and I know it was one of those situations where you had to be there, but I really wanted to share that.  Imagine they hadn't had much to drink then and that's what they got up to, what would they do if they were drunk - the mind boggles.  J said we must do it again but if we do we'll catch the train or the bus cause then she can have a drink.  Sounds like a blimin' good idea to me........

Raingods with Zippos

Hi everyone - hope your ok?  Thanks for the messages once again!  I still haven't sorted out my keyboard.  When I try it comes up with this message that some file or another is missing and I can't be bothered to sort it out yet (totally lazy I know!!)

I received this on an email once and I liked it so much that I printed it off and wanted to share it with you guys :-)

You may not realise it but it's 100% true

There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.

At least 15 people in this world love you in some way

The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.

A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.

Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.

You mean the world to someone

You are special and unique

Someone that you don't even know exists, loves you.

When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes of it.

When you think the world has turned it's back on you, take a look.

Always remember the compliments you received.  Forget about the rude remarks.

Isn't that nice?  I think it helped me through some tough moments that piece did!

Onto a slight change of subject I need your help again guys.  Whilst filling in another application form I found myself thinking what is the difference between administration and clerical?  What do you guys think?  The dictionary describes them as:  administration - the management of a business or government, people involved.  Clerical - having to do with the clergy, having to do with the clerk.  (havingto do what with the clerk is what I'm wondering ha ha ha.....)

Does anyone know how to change the keyboard settings?  I've looked under control panel and can't see anything in there and it's doing my head in when I type @ and I have to hit the " button grrrr............ Help!!

Friday night was booze night with my old colleagues and it was a good laugh but it was sad saying goodbye to everyone :-(  I ended up staying at a mates house, but I didn't have that much to drink although I did need the walls to guide me to the loos in the pub ha ha ha.... ;-) It's so weird that I shall never see those people again and it does scare me, but after 5 years it's the least I can expect.  I think I learnt quite a bit staying at my friend's house as she and another woman (who was there) and they are both older than me! 

Today I've not done much, I went for a bike ride which woke me up and went for a meal this evening with my mate (even though we should've been at the gym ha ha ....)  Posted off another application.  Closing date to one of them was today so hopefully I shall hear something soon (fingers crossed).

I was gonna put up a message on Saturday about this comment that was made to me on Friday.  I was quite upset about it and there was really nothing I could do about it, but with my best mates help I did eventually get over it.  But it hurt at the time.  Don't you hate it sometimes when people pass judgement on you before knowing the full facts?

Well I hope you're all ok! Happy writing's everyone :-)

P.S The Live at the Bowl DVD is absolutely fantastic much better than Live At Wembley in my eyes - go and buy it!
