Nothing much interesting going on right now so I’m mostly blogging for the sake of filling space. And attempting to get people to comment – commenting is at a lull at the moment and I haven’t had any decent comments in 36 hours (excepting spam and someone whose comment was ‘I am a chinease’ on an entry about ICQ numbers).
I started back at work yesterday – I’m now there essentially full time until September. It’s good to see everyone again and to have something to do during the day – and the money isn’t too bad either. I can’t see myself wanting to do this as a career but I can think of much worse jobs I’d be doing.
I turned up to work wearing my ‘Zombies Ate My Brain’ t-shirt from the Artificial Duck Shop – well, okay, Dave2. I went for a ‘small’ since I tend to find the American medium to be a bit too large, but while the t-shirt fits it is quite skin-tight. Still, when I went in I had two people commenting that I looked liked I’d lost weight recently, which was nice although actually the opposite is true. However the office moved up two floors a few weeks ago so I have two extra flights of stairs to burn off calories on – we’re now 5 flights up from the ground floor and I have to go up and down several times a day.
Dinner tonight was a tuna pasta bake, made with Homepride Tuna Pasta Bake Sauce. Which is notable because the sauce contains neither tuna nor pasta – it’s really just glorified tomato purée. I wish I’d realised this before before buying it and instead bought a cheap tin of tomato purée for half the price.
We went to Tesco yesterday evening and spent a 3-figure sum on shopping. Admittedly the freezer is now almost full and I’ll have enough food to last me a few weeks, but it’s still a lot of money for a poor student to spend. Though admittedly over £30 of that was alcohol – we’ve discovered wine boxes and now have 6 litres of wine in the house. We also bought an electric fan for my room, which has been very welcome bearing in mind the temperature has remained above 30℉C in here during the daytime since Sunday.
The plan for the rest of the week? More work, and possibly a trip into town and a barbecue at the weekend – which I’m sure will be dull and wet just to annoy me since I’ve spent most of the past two days in a storeroom with no natural light. I may be going down to Hari’s parents the weekend after – she has to go home for a couple of weeks (sob…) so I might spend that weekend with her.
And finally, the title of this entry is inspired by, aka Steve Coogan.
