This is not about food nor Fri. 13th


Luckily I was offered headphones and got to pay a listen to this band's music. Excellent! because I always wanted to do so. This album I was listening to, 'when do we start fighting', sounded great..
Well, my attention went to that, I made a few mistakes at work, and had to spend some 10min correcting them, but that didn't matter! (I was super efficient and the bosses were fairly impressed, I am sure they were!)

Actually, I thought it would've been a bad day! My day kind of began with a knee injury (I fell from my bike on my way to work). There were no cars near me, not even a soul! And it wasn't a narrow alley at all, but I simply suddenly stupidly lost balance and fell to my right side (totally.. me, my bike, my bag, and my esteem, all on the ground, big hit, BANG, SH*T) and what could you have done about it? Nothing but just get up, and come back on the bike, what else!! Well, I did moan to J when I got to the office (who probably didn't believe me coz my trousers looked totally clean and fine although my knee was bleeding...)

Then when Boss J was on about my task, I was trying hard to pay attention (don't ask me why!) I did manage to get what he wanted me to do but I totally missed the part that he said 'might add some insterest to the work that you'll be doing coz then you'll know what all these spread sheet are for'. I was cutting pasting saving files about something important anyway! This afternoon I was busy and important concentrating...

Anyway, that was my first ever office job and I hope what I did was 100% correct (hmm, I doubt it....some of those Welsh names gave me headaches..) Looking forward to going again soon. It's like a positive change of air for me, and people there are quite nice, they smile! A lady there told me they even had gunpowder tea in the kitchen (what's that?) The boy in the same office with me speaks with an American accent, and that made me miss my American flatmate!! Poor boy, he had to share a snickers bar with me, bless him...The other Chinese guy just said to me 'you look like you're from China' and then he went to have a very long lunch break and never came back at all...

Then afterward I was a bit disappointed not to hear back from L about going to Brokeback Mountain, then I decided to go to the concert the other L was going, but then there was no concert at all in the music dept. ?? So I just played some piano, and then biked home (almost fell over AGAIN... oh good gracious...people were so friendly, they greeted me and by greeting back I just suddenly forgot how to ride a bike!!)




Nice surprise x2: I came home planning to have toasts for t, (eating and drinking loads all day, honestly!!) but my housemate kindly offered well-prepared Japanese dinner for me! *yummy* And then a text from C offering me a tic to see Graham Coxon at Fibbers on Monday! Oh, I'm so f**king pleased!!!!!!

Back to Seafood. My jukebox is now playing me lemon jelly, pulp, death cab for cutie, pub, and even bright eyes! Is my jukebox broken or? I like those bands, but Seafood's music's not like those! How odd.. OK, The Futureheads are a bit similar. and the Pixies...

Can't believe after an afternoon of cutting-pasting-saving and also my bloody knee I just typed all this again.. Actually I'm extremely kn*ckered..night night everyone thanks for reading...
