Now comes the dog again

27 November 2007

It is only Tuesday :(
I wantssess it to be Thursday. Okay, okay, I’d prefer if it were Friday and the working week over, but if I was going to go that far I’d have to hope it was the 20th and I’d be on my xmas hols, but that is wishing your life away and is ever so dreary :)

But Thursday’ll be fun as we are having a charity football match at work. Students v Staff. yay. And in a good cause, tis for concern, so we can feel good about ourselves.

To keep you updated, I still but nevertheless, here I am, typing away like a mad yoke. I spent ages yesterday putting photos up on my facebook account, and answering silly trivia questions. What else can one do when one is bored?

I’ve been reading Hilary Mantel’s A Place of Greater Safety but have decided to toss it for the time being. I’m getting nowhere with it, although I am enjoying it, it simply requires more thought and attention than I’m willing to give at the moment. Plus it, like, totally weighs a ton, so I can’t be dragging it about with me. Maybe over the break when I have the time I’ll get stuck back in.

My problem is that I don’t really know all that much about the peoples involved in the French Revolution, and that, together with their funny furrin names is confudling me. And the fact that I seem to only read it at weekends. Actually I’m guessing that last point is probably the real problem :)

I trying to figure out how much *fun* I should have at the xmas partay. Do I just be merry and go home early so I can go into work the next morning with no trouble? Or do I go out and get totally slaughtered and come to work still drunk? At the moment I’m veering towards the slaughtered option, it seems more fun.

Title is a line from the first chapter of A Plave of Greater Safety, no real reason, I just like the way it sounds.

    Drunkenness at office Christmas parties sometimes leads to ass-photocopying. And fondling the boss but since you're the boss you're unlikely to fondle yourself. Not publicly anyway…

    I'm a-comin' down on Saturday so if you're planning on watching My So-Called Life all day you might want to leave a small window of time for me. But tis no matter – I'm mainly going to be cursing other shoppers as I struggle to pur-chase items I cannot get on t'interweb or in Drawda, so if you're not around for long, that's ok.

    I'm probably going home to Sligeach on the 7th/8th for de weekend – most likely on the plane but if you're home, we (plural) can go visit Copper together.

    Has VM arrived in the post yet? And what do you want for your almighty birthmas present this year?

    I don't think there'll be any ass-copying as we won't be anywhere near a photocopier.

    I do have to shop for something to wear to the party, so I may be venturing out among the hordes myself.

    Don't think I'll be home again til xmas. And aye, VM is here, haven't watched any though.

    The football game sounds like fun! Best of luck to your side. I've never quite understood the ideas of having Christmas parties on a night when folks have to return to work the next day. Seems very counter productive. Whatever option you choose I hope you have a great time.

    @Carl: I don't get it either. But I think it is cheaper to hire a place on the Thurs rather than the Fri.

    Sounds like the kind of logic my place of employment employs…
