Ok, *cannot* get pictures to work so have added as links (only 3, the rest of the pictures are in the main album). Someone please explain to me how they post pictures as I have fokllowed the instructions in the FAQ and they're still not showing up.

In other fab UK tv news, Waking the Dead is being repeated. I think this means the new series will be on soon :D Also means I have to set up the video machine with Sky.

In other *really bad* tv news, the Elliebitch (Esther Hall, Tom’s girlfriend in S1) is going to be in WTD. BUGGER. Still, should make the recaps from me more interesting.

Spooks!!!!!

*is ded from squee but will resurrect in time for series 4 and then die again*

Adventures of the semi-literate

There’s a carrier bag in our office which obviously got left behind on Friday and has rubbish in it. Someone has taped a message to it saying ‘Someone left this hear on Friday. Take your rubbish home with you.’

*headdesk*

Plus, I have had an update today misspelling ‘amended’ and ‘boulevard’.

Note to self: it’s the fifth of September, not the ninth of May. Stop mixing the numbers up when you type the dates, idiot.

Another meme, icons (at least not until I figure out how to post the bloody things) and a bit of blather:

1. Go into your livejournal archive
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Find your 5th sentence (or closest to it.)
4. Post the text of your sentence in this post along with these instructions.
5. Tag 5 people on your friends list.

"I'm just basically fuming." (plus ça change, non?)

Tagging: sensaes, pinkaleatea, keldeekadys, _phoe, kikishua

Incidentally, has anyone else seen the completely cracked genius that is R Kelly’s Trapped In The Closet? And if so, do you know what happens in the last part?

Not much to report about my weekend, but in short: I have the Spooks DVDs, they are ace. See update.

Saturday Dear and I went shopping in Bromley and I failed to get a DVD box. Twit. I booked a hair appointment for next Saturday and they actually seemed to listen to me when I said I wanted it thinned. There was also this cheap jewellery shop opened in Bromley where most of the the stuff was £1 and I got a load of gem chip strings for £1 each, including some of the sparkly tigerstone stuff and some hematite. Will start doing bracelets again soon as am fairly skint and could do with doing a bit less shopping. Oh, and then I got 10 books from Bromley Library. 3 were reference books so not read-from-start-to-finish, one was a really bizarre Death graphic novel, and I’m halfway through one of the remaining 6, and 2 chapters into one of the others. I reckon I can get through all of them in three weeks and not pay massive fines for a change. And I will do a book post soon. It will be long.

Dear and I watched Maria Full Of Grace which was really, really good. And I watched Ong-Bak, which was very ooooooo and wow but I preferred Kung Fu Hustle, which will be out on DVD soon, you should buy it.

And yesterday I tidied my room, watched Spooks, played with the laptop and we watched the first two parts of Messiah 4 (in case anyone was wondering why there had been a police show on and I hadn’t mentioned it). Was good, but somehow in between each one I forgot that they’re horribly gory and involve many inventive ways to die. Lovely.

And repeating myself slightly but: yay! WTD, boo! Elliebitch. Damn.

Short rant

Note to IC:

It may have occurred to you that you are supposed to be there to aid and train me in contracts (not that there’s been much evidence you’re even awake, let alone capable of telling someone what to do). It obviously hasn’t occurred to you that unless you tell me that multiple contracts from Supplier X have to be split, I WON’T KNOW and therefore will happily send them out as one, as this (as far as I know) is the only supplier where this happens. If you were waiting for me to seem apologetic or upset, tough luck. I’m not a funking mind reader.

And exactly what did you expect me to do? If the managing agent is unhappy with that, he’ll send it back and tell me. If he’s not, he’d be signing both anyway, so what’s the problem?

Is there a colleagues_suck community or similar? Everyone’s pretty funking miserable at the moment. Even K’s talking about punching someone.
