Last day at work today.

I've thankfully managed to line something else up, and I'm looking forward to the redundancy pay out too, although I'll not believe it 'til I see it sat in my bank account.

So I just got back from ANOTHER job interview, this one a follow-up in London; I'm sick of being so damn chipper, and keen it's so painfully self-aggrandissing. But fuck it I need a new job.

Also, Why do Virgin persist in lying about how long that train journey takes?! Just accept it's not 2 hours, we all know it, be honest...

How did your interview go? The job market is awful at the moment, I've never struggled to find a job before, but definitely am at the moment. Let's hope we both find something soon.

Happy New Year.

So, so long 2009 and may you never darken my door again (I'm pretty confident that on this point, I can say it won't), for you have been possibly the worst year in living memory for me and my fortunes;

Finally lost all hope of being with the one person I have (sadly too late) come realise is the only...

Yo bro. Happy new year. Not much has changed around here so far, but it's early. 2010 is going to be a turn around for us i think.

I appear to have drunk more in the last three days than in the previous three months, go team! I've been avoiding booze for a while, as I have absolutely no understanding of the word 'moderation' - but friends visiting from Glasgow + finding out I am (along with everyone else I work with) being made redundant at the end of February induced some awesome levels...

So my week's been a predictibly squalid mixture of self-hatred and booze, but it's done with now.

Last night I went to see Grizzly Bear play at Manchester Cathedral, and it was.... ok (nice building, poor sound, a musical style I like in small doses).

I was actually really looking forward to a bit of looking at these fucking hipsters, but sadly they...

i tried to get into grizzly bear but that new album of theirs was a tad dull.

the 29th marks the anniversary of my failed marriage.

I'm off to crawl into a deep dark pit full of self-pity and loathing for the next week.

fimbis:
Cheers for the blog comment.
