Thursday Regular Day Thread

C’mon guys, it is practically 9am and no daily thread?

Taking R out for his birthday treat day out (almost a week before his birthday due to logistics), his dad has already pissed me off and he hasn’t even arrived yet so that is a good start. R is super excited though, which is really nice :blush:

How are we all?

Where you going?

Working in Edinburgh today, get to leave early to… get some fillings.

Hey FL et al

Happy early birthday R :slight_smile: :cake: :partying_face:

As for me and my life: well, it’s raining heavily again, I’ve got another stinker of a day coming up, and I’m regretting my decision to have eaten fish and chips last night. Oh well!

Story Centre! R’s favourite place (thanks to @scout for telling me about it)


morning all

was going to get an earlier train today but it got cancelled. so I decided to get my usual train. also cancelled. great work train dickheads :clap:

today I will mostly be avoiding doing any work where at all possible - interviewing someone later, still think the concept of me interviewing people and deciding whether they get a job is preposterous but there you go.

Just done an hour of kettlebells :nauseated_face:. Got so much to do at work today but CBA.

Morning FL!

Got back from Texas yesterday and had a normal night’s sleep so I’m hoping I’ve beaten the jetlag before it starts? I got bitten to shit by mosquitoes out there and I react really badly, so much so that I think I have actual bruises where a few of them had a nibble on the same bit of leg.

Ngl I’m a bit pleased I can wear jumpers again and walk around outside without melting.

Hi all,

Need some advice in poll form

Do you use DiS on your work computer?

  • Yep, the typing looks good
  • No I browse on my phone so They don’t know what I’m doing all day

Speaking of which, I dreamt I got one of my clients pregnant :scream: :scream:

Actually had to properly wake myself up from the dream.

Have fun looking them in the eye next time you see them.

Been finding lately that I’m always running late for work cos I turn my phone alarm off then immediately start scrolling rather than getting up. Bought a cheap alarm clock yesterday so I can leave my phone in the living room overnight and went to bed last night with a sense of smug satisfaction. Obviously the alarm didn’t work and I was incredibly late to work as a result. Good to try these things though.

Still on a bit of a buzz from seeing Sacred Paws last night, they’re so great.
