I hate this place. Not the Cellar. THIS place.

Having a completely insane moodswing. I should probably take my meds and go to bed before I do anything worse than yelling at people on the phone.

check back in later though.

Yeah, he is/was a complete sweetheart except when someone was on his porch.

fucking fuck.

I'm upset at myself. I parked carelessly the other day, got a parking ticket. $44 bucks. OUCH. But it gets better. Since I didn't pay it promptly (within 14 days) a late penalty of $25 bucks has been added.


Somebody's gonna get $69 less holiday this year.

That sucks V :( Bad enough having to pay out, but when it's your own fault it sucks ass big time.

@ Griff: still no news?

Griff 12-12-2012 06:48 AM

Nothing. The neighbors expressed sincere concern for him which was nice, but nothing new.

orthodoc 12-12-2012 08:06 AM

I'm sorry, Griff. Still crossing fingers and hoping for good news.

Sundae 12-12-2012 08:15 AM

Good news/ bad news.
Wokplace Assessment Review has me signed off until January, then a phased return. Have to assent to abstinence (I do!)

Hate to be away for Christmas week, but I still have a job.
Also have to go onto SSP (which is even lower than my normal wages). But I still have a job.

And I've lost 2.5 stone.
If I can make it 3 by the time I get back to work then they'll see the difference.

Sorry Griff, haven't commented on your situation, been too concerned with mine.
I really feel for you. Bloody awful - fingers crossed and all that.

V, it will come back to you one way or another. Which is hippy-speak for "I feel your pain too". Not a good time of year for frivolities.

Sundae, you've lost 2.5 stone - they'll see that all right! Well done, even if it was kind of forced on you! The not back to work til January thing sucks, indeed, but then you're going back to the job you love.
Big V - been there, done that (not with parking fines, but same sort of thing), bummmmer.
Griff - I do hope Merlin turns up safe and well.

BigV 12-12-2012 12:23 PM

Merlin, come home, please!

I've mentioned before that Twil's dog is

part antelope, part Houdini, part fence climbing monkey, purebred recidivist.
Last night she called me and said "Jack's back." *blinkblink* Back? Yeah, he'd slipped his bonds and had some adventure through the area. He was all muddy and wet when she found him and brought him in. I know well the ache of a missing family member. I hope he turns up at the pound or the neighbor's or back in the yard! And soon. Merlin, come home!

Trilby 12-12-2012 12:24 PM

well, that's GREAT actually, Sundae! Time OFF!

Now, how are they going to (if they are) monitor you? How will they know if you've been naughty or nice? what is a phased return?

and congrats on the wt. loss babeh!

Griff---I'm so sorry. :( I hope Merlin comes home.

and sundae---what is SSP?

I"m an ignorant Yank you know.

SSP is Statutory Sick Pay, a government allowance payable when your employer's sick pay stops. Dang commie idea if you ask me!
