Weekend can’t come fast enough for me. It’s not been a bad week, business has been alright, I put my flat on the market and stand to do okay IF it sells at the right price, had a splendid dinner with IC, submitted an entry to the Profanisaurus which my brother agrees is frankly inspired… no, it’s not been a bad week at all. I just fucking hate having to work.
It’s not so much the work itself, when this job is going okay the only thing you have to fear is mild boredom, it’s not like some half-witted Navvy in a compact Elevator is going to drop half a ton of Calcium silicate bricks on my head after being distracted by a bit of downmarket skirt on the other side of the road. What I object to is the having to be here when I don’t actually have to be here. I could do everything from home -and not having to deal with fuse-blowing colleagues who invent the most unbelievable fucking lies in order to make themselves appear more than just the obsequious, loathsome, social outcasts that they are- and probably far more efficiently.
It was jolly nice to see my bro in the pub last night, despite it being relatively short. I was home by 8, in time to take a bath and wash off the fury of being told by a colleague he was direct descendent of JMW Turner, before watching Masterchef and a documentary on youtube about Motorhead.
I’ve a full on weekend ahead, beginning tonight with what could be called ‘clubbing,’ not really my scene to be frank but I’m happy to join in with proceedings. Beats staying in and beating off, right mum.
Before the chart (I don’t make the rules, Gerry does) I’d like to draw you attention once again to http://www.nicktann.co.uk/. I’m mentioning this because the chap in question kindly sent me a bunch of Classic Bike DVD’s and I owe him one. After the chart a surprisingly pretty choon from within, but before all that my fervent desire that you all have wonderful, splendid weekends.
