I'm so forking bored. Work is absolutely dead at the moment, and although it's nice to only be working 11-3, the 4 hours I'm here I've got nothing to do and it's so dull. I am doing a wedding planning course through work so I'm working on that but I'm sick of reading about forking weddings and picky brides. GAH!

Oh and it's Nottingham.

Thanks for your thoughts, veg_eric. I would happily move if the situation was different, but the last year or so has been difficult. At this point I'm not ready to leave everything here (would have to fix up the house some more and find a lodger too) for a relationship that might be ending. Either way we still have time to work this out. He starts there at the end of july, but has a 3 month trial period. The earliest I would move, would be october then.


I'll look out for ya if you move :)

After losing touch with the guy for a month and worrying that I would have to come up with another awesome birthday gift idea for biker boy, the chalkboard artist finally sent me a mock-up of the Maker's Manhattan chalkboard. It's sooooo amazing! And has biker boy's name worked into a "bar" logo. I. Can't. Wait. to give it to him on his bday!

Now, I am very hungry...


In other news, I am having a frustrating day. All I want to do is lock myself away in my studio and make things. I am stuck at work.

I want to take a nap, but I took one yesterday afternoon and I'm afraid I'll get into a nap-taking habit. I don't want to reach the end of my life and think "shiitake, I took too many naps."

I'm currently trying to convince my bff (American, lives in Newcastle) to come up here to see Reginald D Hunter (American comedian) during the Festival Fringe. I've never paid for a Fringe show (and usually got what I paid for), but I'd pay to see him.

I think you may be right. I decided to just close my eyes and rest for a moment, and then when I opened my eyes, it was suddenly two hours later. Instead of worrying about wasted time, I am just going to pretend that I time traveled 2 hours into the future.

There you go! I know how you feel though. It's the whole I could be getting so much done if I didn't nap feeling. But ya know what, it feels damn good to nap sometimes. And that makes it worth it.

This past Saturday I woke up at 9, ate my breakfast and sat on the couch, and then went back to bed at 10. Took a nice 3 hour nap and said well damn I guess I wasn't ready to wake up that early.

Oh, she totally wants to see him. But it would mean sleeping on my sofa bed and leaving her ill husband at home by himself. He's been having health problems since she was in the US last month, so she can't commit to anything. But Mike didn't see interested when I mentioned it (while we were watching him do stand-up on a BBC comedy show and laughing our asparagi off). I really, really want to see him. Every year, I see something that I think I might like but don't see, and I always regret it. And as much as I hate the festival crowd, I always feel like I should take advantage of the fact that so many amazing people are here and relatively cheap to see (£13 for Reggy Hunter!).

Oh.... so you don't know that the city was built by a monkey? Sadly the monkey died in the construction process....

I'm not familiar with Stephen the Angry Vegan. Who is this?

I felt really silly, I thought I had missed something and that you were upset. Silly me.

I normally don't listen to talk radio but was flipping the stations on my radio and this lady was on talking about how $250k/year is not wealthy in California. I was like what the hell... tell that to the people who live in the same area and make minimum wage.

It's sort of true, though. It's not to say that other people don't have it worse, but when people say that, what they mean is, "$250k/year doesn't go nearly as far as you think it would in 2012 California," which is true. Mike and I have a combined income that I would have been STOKED about and would surely qualify us for things like home ownership and healthcare in other places. As it stands, I am uninsured; we live in a studio; and we live paycheck to paycheck, and we are definitely not the only ones.

Damn, though. Really? I made $11,000 an academic school year when I was a TA, and was not allowed to work another job during that time. Sure, I have a small credit card and some help from my fella, but nevertheless I still managed to live in a pretty good sized apartments in not-so-cheap-for-Chicago neighborhoods.

If I ever make like, I don't know, $40,000 a year, I'll probably start thinking I can afford a yacht.
