Stuffed and still eating...PIGGY!!!!!!!!!!!

Got up today at about 2pm (6 hours abed) and had to brave town...


The only reason I HAD to go in town was because it was 'secret santa' at work tonight...and a team 'party' in our lunchhour...

So dragged myself to Boots to fight the a nice toiletry set for the random person I'd picked from the the bank to pay more bills...then went shopping for myself...oops!

Couldn't resist the temptation...

Got two disposable cameras, mascara, new nail polish, then off to the market for silver and black ribbons and braids to make two bunches-type-things to wear on friday as part of my 'fairy gothmother' outfit...might add some silver tinsel to it...

And off to Sainsbury's to get food for work...


Came out with a bottle of mulled wine (mine), two boxes of brandy snaps, cheese and chive puff pastry things, sesame seed sticks, etc etc...YUM!!

Got to work at 5:30, ready to start another 12 hour shift...6pm to 6am again...yawn!

Ate way too much in the 'party' and felt somewhat ill for a couple of hours after...having indulged too much...was given a very good bottle of red as my secret santa idea who from (as is the point), but they certainly knew my tastes...(if it's red I'll drink it!)

Arsed around with some extremely vulgar conversation after lunch till 6am, had a brief fracas with a retarded yokel burberry clad xmas temp who kept staring/grinning at me and laughing to his which I replied : "Got a fucking problem?"...he shut up after that...

Also got a bit irate at Dave and James, as they were going on about how FUNNY the ending of American Beauty was...the shooting etc...ranted at them that if they found that funny then they were insensitive morons who couldn't appreciate the tragic dramatic irony of it all...

OH, and put a 'defective workstation' notice on the Duty Obs computer screen...with the comment/fault as 'Operated By Morons!'...the boss found it hilarious thankfully!!!


There was LOADS of food left over...and now my cupboards are no longer bare...and I'm sat here still snacking...I'll be sick at this rate...

Need to go to bed now as I have to be in Theatre by 1pm for another show this afternoon...

Sleep, 7:30am to 11am and then I have to get ready and walk in...


*wanders off*
  • Current Music
    Vince Guaraldi Trio : Jazz stuff...snoopy theme etc etc

Terribly tired, but off to work til 6am as per usual *sigh*

Hauled myself out of the proverbial pit at approximately 12 lunchtime today...consequently was *forced* to get a taxi to theatre...

The show this afternoon went as well as expected...audiences can be SO different...but it was good, and I enjoyed myself, despite (?) all the hard work I put into it...

Finished up at 5pm and took the 'Candyman' bus home...

I say 'CandyMan' because this particular route takes you right through the cities most unsavoury red light district and on into what can ONLY be described as 'CandyMan' country...not unlike that of the 'Cabrini Green' ghetto in the film of 'The Forbidden' (a short story from 'In The Flesh' by Clive Barker which, in literary form was set in another area I lived near lol).

Mount Wise is SUCH a degenerate area of the city, and quite possibly the worst... It's nothing but towerblocks and demolished buildings...the tower-blocks are all derelict, boarded up and smothered in graffiti, with only about 10% of them actually inhabited, those that are being lit with a tumult of garishly colourful xmas lights in a desperate attempt by the residents to brighten up their lives and the area they live in.

Truly AWFUL!!! (and entirely alien to my social upbringing...with arty, sailing types for relatives, big houses etc etc)


Arrived home (much better area with a big park and view out to sea...phew!) and went straight to make tea...lovely!!

Then played 'Ophelia' (as in Sir John Everett Millais) in the bath for half an hour, and here I am now drinking more tea and smoking a cigarette, preparing for work as usual.

Thankfully I have no theatre tommorrow, tho I am doing overtime beginning at 6pm...ho hum...another 12 hour shift...might make a move into town to do some dreaded xmas shopping...maybe not!!

Oh, and I got myself a Deviant-Art account not so long ago...if you *really* want to see an example of my art, and some god-awful poetry spanning 1993 to HERE!!!
