  1. The Proof…

    December 13, 2007 by superlative

    … were actually really good! But oh my god I am so tired now, I don’t know quite how I made it in to work.

    They sang about six songs, stuff like My Girl and Valerie and some others, and had surprisingly good voices. It wasn’t packed in there, enough people for it not to be too shameful, but it was much busier when it was Eton Road. One of them, the best-looking one with the shaved head, seemed to be obsessed with having his microphone turned up. He asked about four times until his was clearly much louder than everyone else’s, which made him look a bit self-centred!

    In the end I only got about 3 hours sleep, and now I’m really feeling rough. I don’t know how I’m supposed to be going out for another Christmas meal with drinking and dancing tonight. Actually, yes I do know. The plan is that I’ll try to leave work early today, I’ll have a nice sleep, and then I will have limited alcohol intake this evening as I’ll clearly still be recovering from yesterday. Hopefully I’ll be able to make it in tomorrow in not too bad a state. My poor liver must hate me.

  2. Reverse management

    December 11, 2007 by superlative

    This afternoon I’ve got to go back to my old job in order to train the replacement for my old manager on how to do their job. How stupid is that? I shouldn’t be training them to do their job even if I still worked there, let alone six weeks after I left! It’s just typical of their chronic ineptitude though, I’m surprised the office hasn’t burnt down since I left. Oh well, I get an afternoon out of the office I suppose and I doubt I’ll finish in time to come back to work here.

    I am well looking forward to Christmas now. This week is a Christmas party overload. I’ve got a Christmas lunch tomorrow followed probably by pub, and then clubbing in the evening (I’ll come back to this bit), then a Christmas dinner on Thursday with my old job, then a Christmas office party on Friday, then a Christmas dinner with friends on Friday night. I’m going to be such a fat bastard, I’ll have to start running to work or something.

    Oo yes, and Wednesday night should be very exciting as we are planning to go and see Futureproof perform! Sure, they are a slung-together boyband who only came about 7th on X-Factor, but we like tacky crap and baby they are it. And the beauty of boybands is that you get to judge them and pick the one you think is most attractive as your favourite while dismissing the rest for bad teeth/bad hair/lopsided squashed face.
