It's ALIIIIIIIIIIVEE!!!!! (and ting) [Nov. 8th, 2004|01:33 pm]

[Music |Bauhaus : Burning from the inside]

Felt diabolically ill yesterday - crawled to the shop and weighed up the pros and cons of Lemsip Max Strength sachets and Beechams Flu powder capsules...

Went for the Beechams - not only were they half the cost, they also INCLUDED CAFFEINE!!!

(works for me!)

So, dosed up on Beechams, I spent the afternoon and evening in the company of my wickle sister, her boyfriend and my mother. Dad had gone out to Bovey Castle to play a gig - stint at the Joanna for hotel customers as usual...

On top of said Beechams, I also had a couple of double gin and tonics, my mother also had a g&t and both her and my sister polished off a sickening-smelling big bottle of bacardi breezer in pineapple flavour... Steve drank half a bottle of my father's Bells whisky instead.

We spent the entire evening playing Trivial Pursuit at the breakfast bar in the kitchen... Mother talked over all the questions with an anecdote for everything and answered the ones which weren't hers - we mocked this, and my sister and I got our rewengay by singing loudly to the choirboys/gals on radio two at the time - church hymns in opera stylee....

I came up from behind and beat them all soundly. Gave them a right royal drubbing and won the game!!!

A good time was had by all.

Got to the loft to go to bed about ten pm, then spent a good two hours on the phone to my boyfriend - finally fell asleep about 12:30...

Have slept till 1pm with the cat on my bed (she SNORES!!), have woken up feeling a whole lot better - no more hot flushes/cold sweats - just decidedly congested and have a stupid chesty cough *snort/reaches for Benylin*....

Mother has been out and got me a SNOOPY DUVET SET!!!! I am happy. I am going out later to Art College to try to catch up with my photography - but I can never be arsed to do anything on a Monday...

*blah de blah*
*need a cup of tea*

Hooble Toodle Doo!!



I have the offer of an internet account at work - is this wise??

I already spend 8 hours a night at work staring at a monitor and typing uberfast anyway - but I'd have an 8 hour opportunity to surf when on dutyobs once a week inbetween stats and stuff...

As it is, I always surf teh interwebnet when I get home from work for an hour or so to wind my brain down... and then I'm back online in the afternoon/evening before I go out to college/work again...

Are you Addicted to the Internet?

While you do get a bit of sleep every night and sometimes leave the house, you spend as much time as you can online. You usually have a browser, chat clients, server consoles, and your email on auto check open at all times. Phone? What's that? You plan your social events by contacting your friends online. Just be careful you don't get a repetitive wrist injury...

Umm... I had a very nice capuccino with a tot of English Mead thrown in for good measure before bed last night. Along with a couple of spoons of benylin I think it did the trick;)

Just got a stupid puke-inducing loose chesty cough now...

I think you should get the account, if only because then you can enjoy the quasi-sexual thrill of surfing for +other jobs+ while at work. If you need to unwind after work you can always do something else, like drink a nice Campari or two.

Was getting a bit concerned about you Pete - glad to see you're back in the land of the living!!

To be honest, I'm not sure I'd have much time to surf anyway at work - I do far far far too much with dutyobs and any time I'd have free would be for EYEBREAKS lol!!

*hugs back*

The right woman will arrive when you least expect it. Trust me on this. Stop looking and concentrate on being happy within yourself:)
