Was that Ian's sex face? #EELiveWill the cast manage to call themselves by their character names for a full 30 minuets? #EELiveMount card paper cut. Beat that. It’s like a cut from a Stanley knife. http://t.co/93w6IMULUpVery productive week done. Now for a weekend project of epic proportions - well, it’s not epic, but it is my biggest yet.

It's 6.30 already? Shit! Where does all the time go?It's nice that our office has been painted. I wish they got a decorator to do it though. That cutting in ... .... Oh my.There’s a special place in Hell for people who link to shit on the server instead of packaging their fucking InDesign files. Assholes.

It's really time to find a job that pays me the going rate for today, not 7 years ago. #paydaymayday anyone hiring?#paydaymaydayAnd you know you've been running on fumes too long when you put a tenners worth in and the light is still on.How the fuck does one small bag of not very exciting food shopping total up to £11? No champagne not caviar in this bag.Emergency stash used. All is lost! ALL IS LOST!Shit. One rizla left.Just checked my bank account. Payday Friday. It's a long way to go on what's left. #gulp #employed_but_broke

I do so loath job ads that state £competitive. Are you paying the going rate or being insulting? Don't waste our time!

@Gordon_Keenan @nicsnycdeli if we ever find ourselves in Scotland, it will be on the list.We were going to try a @krispykreme doughnut today, but when we saw they charge £1.60 EACH we decided they can fuck off... £1.60, I ask you.

Oh, A Case of You... for #Acoustic6Music ah!

Retweeted by Grumpy Technician@amazonhelp rather than targeting individual aspects of your business you want to push, if offering credit, make it universal! #thoughsSweet! @AmazonUK gave me £2 credit to spend on the android app store. All I need now is an android device to use it.

@GuyAdamsAuthor it's true. Wouldn't want to just read your words exclusively. Spread the joy. Words and pictures. It's about my level.@GuyAdamsAuthor bollocks. I’m sure I said something more complimentary to you in 2003. Next week? Yeah maybe. It’s cheaper than your books.@GuyAdamsAuthor I’m so very glad…@GuyAdamsAuthor read it. Forgot how good 2000AD was. Will have to get it regularly again. Remember when it was Still Only 50p?Bof. Too many things to do before I go to work. too many things to do before it all closes for two weeks.I'd forgotten what a mess pinterest is.

Some fucker called @GuyAdamsAuthor has infected my copy of 2000AD not once but twice! Man alive … whatever next.Sometimes working here has benefits. Like being able to use all the equipment after work to make things. No chance of owning half this stuffIf yesterday taught me anything, it was I am happiest when making something. I've got to do this full time for sake of my sanity.

Probably going to go to the city centre tomorrow and shop with the fleshy 3d people. Once a year is acceptable.I love bikes. I like the way they look. I love that it’s free transport. I just wish they had a motor, and cup holders, and could carry 8x4.I can’t stop listening to Lazaretto. Must have been in at least 15 times today. #freelancejukebox

Needless to say there's no mention of a returns number on the @EuroCarParts invoice. The number is for 'feedback'. Should have gone to GSFSo I wait in line @EuroCarParts for 20 mins then told I have phone to get a return number. Back at the arse end of the line now.Just what is it that the counter guy does at eurocarparts? They vanish for hours and come back with a single nut, of the wrong size.

I have a tooth that feels too big. This is usually expensive. #nhsdentists #whatnhsdentistsLooks like if you want to break Airmail.app, you need to pay £6.99 and get the new one. I'll stick with v1.7, thanks.It's all very strange.What is going on with @twitter this week? First my account was suspended, now my email is invalid, got messages from people I don't follow.
