Invader Zim - Curse You!


I had today off as unpaid leave (as I've exhausted my regular annual leave this year) to blitz a load of stuff. I didn't get to bed last night until about 4am and was up at 8.30 this morning getting stuff done.

Then I made the mistake of popping into work. I was there until almost 5pm (without lunch break). Am not happy as not only am I now exhausted I've also not managed to do 90% of the things I had planned for today.

Luckily I have tomorrow and Thursday off work and I'm going to make sure I don't go anywhere near the shop until Friday just in case!!!

Sorry. I've gone all angsty and am pretending to be a teenager! I'm now going to sulk in my room for a bit and play loud music (or something!).

...or something

I choose the 'or something' over staying in my room sulking and playing loud music.

I didn't intend to but I decided I needed to get out of the house and go for a walk (partially because I was restless and partially because the girls had the central heating on all day and the house was way too warm for it to be a healthy Angus environment - I prefer things cooler).

My walk led me past The Catcher on The Rye. A nice drinking hole in Finchley that I rediscovered my love for a few weeks ago. I thought "why not" (as you do) and popped in for a pint only to be confronted by all the usual barmaids completely gothed up for Halloween and all the televisions playing The Rocky Horror Picture Show with various members of the clientelle dressed up to the nines in costume.

I brought my pint and sat back and soaked in the atmosphere from the corner. So it wasn't a particularly socialable evening but it did get me away from things for a while and allowed me to relax and cool down. Plus I had pretty things to look at and a trip down memory lane as I'd not seen the film for several years.

Am continuing with my evening of rest and am going to bed to read and have an early night. Tomorrow I aim to be ultra productive and also aim to kick this off by a first thing trip to the gym for various tortures and also a nice swim.
