I just got back from an MRI scan !
That stuff went right to my head, I felt like I was gliding down the coridor and my breathing was so shallow that I didn't care if my lungs were moving or not. Felt great, really chilled. I couldn't hold my breath for the long hold breath sections, I was always like only 3-5 seconds to quick, but it's alright, they don't need you to be totally steal for 100% of those bits. I hope. It was quite snug being strapped in like that, I donno how these really fat american people fit in them. Stomach was caining afterwards though, probably from being strapped and still for so long, and not being able to eat/drink anything 'till 2 in the afternoon.

I've started loving Flake bars, I wanna be like the women in the advert in the bath tonight.

Tonight I'm eaither cooking my special potato salad, or getting a thai take away, depending on how I feel after my nap.

Alt: alright?

I've been telling myself that I'm gonna get some silk PJs for 3 months now. I dressed up smart to go to work yesterday and I totally felt like The Man, and I kained it work wise, there were emails about me and how awesome I am at what I do... so tomo I'm gonna spend the most I've ever spent on a single shirt, around 50, if I see one I like.

I just finished it, sorry hon, there's bacon in 'em 'eres potato salad.
Crispy Bacon + juices, Mayo, English Mustard, spring onion*, Potatoes. I get the israeli ones if I can, purely on taste and texture, but I've gone for "Freshly Harvested Miniture new potatos" from marks, donno what bread they are, but I wanted small ones not only tick that box, but they're the cheapest too. I made it just now, doubt it took 15 minutes. It's seriously fucking lush, now when it calls down a bit, i'll hit it with another layer of sauce that won't melt as much... but you need that inital melty bit 'cus that goes into the potato. If I was making for company, I'd pin-prick the potatoes.

Tastes nice, really simple, really lush, it's going with an epic home made BBQ Rib sanwich left over from yesterday. It'll also be good for lunch tomo.

yeah, more or less my plan.
Problem is trying to keep up with family and other commitments, at least to a basic level, also feeling quite depressed but this maybe an after effect of stopping taking codiene I relised I didn't need it for the pain but ws taking it from habit and to cheer me up, so have stopped. This may be withdrawal, if so it should pass in a day or so and I can enjoy a righteous skive.

I don't think you can MRI your thinggy, I could totally be wrong, but I don't think you could be still in that possition for that long.
Dayum man, plus saturday surgery = potential hung over surgon (joke). I totaly know what you mean by the extra day though, that's also another 24 hours of anxiety, as it's natural to be anxious about a blade being taken to the skin. Trust me on this though, get 'em to canulate you _after_ you're put out. It makes no difference to them and it's another less-painful thing for you to go through. Also, get a walkman or whatever with you, a cheap one that doesn't matter in case it gets knicked (which it won't, but still). That way you got something to listen to as you go out (the music blurs and sounds cool) and when you wake up, you won't be as bored and have something to distract the pain.

This is something I've always thought, since I was a kid.
There is one perfume that I love, I donno what it's called, but I've always liked it, since I was little. Ma' wore it when I was a kid, and it smells of "Parents are going out for the evening so Izabel* is coming over and I can stay up late and go on the internet**", it's really homely to me, and reminds me of sitting on the bed watching my parents get dressed up, just waiting for them to leave the house.

~~~~~ WAVEY LINES ~~~~

Anyway, my thought has always been, men like to smell women's perfume, and visa-versa. The idea is so it attracts them, so they like it. So why don't blokes just wear girl's perfume and visa-versa so they can have that smell all the time?

I mean, I thought this before I started liking girls and all that.

* She was our cleaner and baby sitter, but she litterally used to spend at least like 75% her wages on sweets for me, she was the closest I've ever had to a grandparent. I lost touch when I hit about 20 and I've tried every year since to get in contact, it wouldn't supprise me if she ain't around these days, but I proper loved her like a granny. Even when I moved out of the 'rents home, she would take 3 busses to clean my flat and she hid the wages until she left. She was proper good to me.

If your temples are sunken then it's very likely to be dehydration.
Take a few paracetamol, then drink a few litres of water. You should start to feel better after half an hour or so.

Assuming you're allowed to drink again, that is. If not, having a shower or bath works almost as well.

Time for a dull TD anecdote
We were in a boozer in Okehampton once, which sold real cider. Hot day, sitting outside, looking up some woman's skirt.

I scoffed three pints of this real cider and wondered what all the West Country nonces raved about it for - I wasn't pissed at all. Then I stood up to go for a slash and fell flat on my face.

Mate, you know I love my gadgets and technology, a complete enphusiast who encouridges others, but I really think the '4G' model is a waste of time anywhere outside of the states.
1) Does the countrie(s) you go to support LTE?
2) If you're using a UK chip, then despite allowances, they don't work abroad, so inside europe you'll be paying about [can't remember exactly] 2/mb, if you're outside of europe, then you're looking at about 6/mb (seriously, I ran 222mb @ 6/mb by accident in one day, in north cyprus).
3) At 75mb/s, or whatever it is exactly, for maths lets say it runs at 50mb/s, a 5GB monthly allouance will be potentially complete inside 1 minute and 40 seconds.

The only way it would be worth it, is if you go to just one of those LTE countries, and get a local datacard for that country, but be locked into some kind of PAYG or monthly contract, which'll odds are it'll fill up straight away.

Must be a big DB, and/or have some kind of caching/optimisation issues.
The DB would have to take up most of the HD to need that kind of requirement.

Not saying that the DBA or whatever is at fault, some systems don't scale and it's unforceable, if something doesn't take up any seconds, then timsing that by a million percent DB growth is still going to show a 0% time increase.... if you get what I mean.
