At my parent's home, off work sick.
Been ill since last Weds, just feeling rubbish, cold and shivery one minute, stripping off the next. I was off on Thursday, but felt a bit perkier in the evening so went in work again Fri. On my dinnerhour raced over to the library returning Chinese cookery books, then Boots to get a sandwich and electric toothbrush. I nearly fainted in there. All afternoon back in work the idea to ask for the rest of the day off is on the tip of my tongue, but all I have to do is click a mouse so I stuck it out.

After a weekend of not-going-out I decided to finally try get some medicine. Rang 3 surgeries in Chorlton, none of which were taking new patients. My old Drs back up in Chadderton didn't have an appointment until this Weds evening, so got my paw to drive me up to Oldham Walk-in centre.

The nurse took my temperature, looked in my ears, down my throat and said "make sure you take plenty of fluids". Maybe I've just been imagining feeling rough. The roof of my mouth is incredibly sore, like I've burnt it eating pizza. I hope I don't have a dental rather than medical problem...

I applied online for an unsecured personal loan off Alliance &Leicester to absorb my overdraft and ex-Gold card. I got accepted, they'll send some paperwork for me to sign. I hope this isn't one of the biggest financial mistakes I could make

Yesterday I called o2 to switch to a pay-as-you-go tariff, but the guy I spoke to gave me a special £15 a month 300 offpeak mins/ 500 txts deal.

Had some Money Laundering training today: reading a wedge of printouts then a multiple-choice quiz!

Quote: terrorism financing occurs where funds for the terrorist act have been raised...

I imagined all these terrorists in their ski masks at a bake sale or raffle, 'raising funds'

This season's accessory du jour is without a doubt, the hipflask.

Ideal for all those still recovering from overspending at Xmas/New Year, but who also have a kitchen full of bottles of alcohol. And also ON SALE!

Last Sat at the Star Kay was in charge of the Bacardi. Bad idea. The more she had, the cockier she got about pouring it out. However as she waited for the rest of us to claim our coats at the end she got mortified when the guy on the door (dunno if it was Nick or not) said to her "next time don't bring yr own drink luv"

Saturday was lovely.
I had to get some ingerdients for my recipe from Travels with a Hot Wok: Grilled lamb w/Sesame sauce.
So Kay and I visited Woo Sang supermarket in Chinatown. I bought exotic things like mirin, tahini snd Sichuan peppercorns. I couldn't resist some Hello Kitty pocky.
There was one disappointment. Outside they had lots of bubblegum-style vending machines w/keychains/ moudled plastic junk in. On display they had Winnie the Pooh ones, except it looked like Pooh had been eaten by something else; you could just see his head sticking out of the creature's mouth. The one we wanted saw Pooh eaten by... a badger! But there were no vending machines containing these prizes and the cashier said he didn't have the key to open the display cabinet

Subject:Arise Sir Roy!
Time:06:23 pm
Current Mood:inspired

Lately there has been a rather strange storyline in Corrie involving Roy and one of (Evil)Charlie's building mates, Vince.

Vince has been going in Roy's Rolls, eating his own food, smoking, tearing bits out of the paper etc.

This has caused Roy no end of flashbacks to his boyhood, being teased in school. They used to call him 'Ray Crapper'. Oscar-winning performances.

Anyway, Roy revealed that his one true ambition was to be ...a librarian!. Never was there one to sexx-up the image of public libraries than Roy and his assortment of snazzy cardies.
Keep up the good work

Courtesy of Mcdonalds current "But one get one free" offer you can now re-create Morgan Spurlock's social experiment yourself, for a 10-day period.

Friday; 2 Big Macs and Reg fries. Ate 1x Mac and Fries. The fries were amazing
Sat: Remaining Big Mac. Went 'halves' on a Chicken Sandwich BOGOF w/Kay.
Sunday: 2x Filet o'fish. Ate them both, they're only small.
Monday: 2x Big Macs again. Worryingly still felt hungry after the first, but resisted and had some Cocopops instead
Tue: Remaining BigMac. Tried to tempt Kay to a Chicken Sandwich again, but she couldn't afford it. She had a frozen lasagne for dinner, but later on I caught her cooking Chicken Dippers... she'd clearly not ben able to stop thinking about that sweet Chicken Sandwich she declined.

New Year= New Job?

On Friday Dasher came over to have a word w/me. About becoming permanent... I got an application form and pre-employment health questionnaire. I also need to show them proof of ID but cuz I ain't got a passport I'll have to send off instead for a copy of my extended birth certificate. Maybe I should just apply for a passport; join the jetset.
He also informed me that becoming a proper member of staff would mean switching to monthly pay, meaning 3 weeks without a wage; probly have to crash ma+paw for some Bells to tide me over...

Apart from that I'm really dying working there at the moment. Last week I was working on an application for Admin Assistant for the Council. On Thursday night I wrote my draft of what I'd put in the "why should we give you this job?" section, intending to write it nicely, or possibly type it on Friday evening... which was when Fred asked if I wanted to go to High Voltage. And the rest is history

It's so quiet here I can't sleep. There isn't a tv or radio in my room anymore so I can't put anything on to distract me from the silence.
The cat woke me up an hour ago wanting to go out. I did, then scurried back to bed to snuggle up again but I started worrying about her out in the cold. Also I knew I should have brought one of my own pillows.
She's safely back inside now. I wonder if the morning light will reveal any dead rodents/birds on the back step.

Peewee received an mp3 player (not an iPod I guess, else he would have said 'an iPod'). I imagine his parents giving it to him so that they can have some peace+quiet while he figures out how to download tracks onto it haha
Lyn said she got lots of random cute junk; nothing especially worth mentioning. I think her folks had to send over $$s to her a couple of times while she was in Vancouver. I've still not found out if she's just over here for Xmas or not.

Laurence sent me a txt, which was unexpected. Not much more than merry xmas. hope yooure having a good day, but... he was thinking about me right? He does seem to have changed towards me lately, softened. I mean inviting me to Dave-mas, then calling me the next day saying that he missed me cuz I didn't go.
I admit I daydreamed about him calling me again, meeting in town like we used to, him giving me a lift home and complaining about how far it was
