So here you are, look I'm really flattered, i didn't think 20 people even checked my blog oh wait they don't its about 6 people who read it and comment many times, but for you 6. this ones for you.
So where i have i been since March? hmm good question, April i was just lazy in the blogging department, i admit that, but at the end of April came the news that i have been waiting 4 months to hear. Yes that's right i got a job. Thank fucking goodness. Not just some shitty job either.
A job doing exactly what i want to do without taking a step back for the year and few months or so that i have been travelling.
A job in London, arguably the mecca for Advertising and Media and a job in the 7th biggest agency in the UK.
So yea Ive been busy, working my butt off and generally trying to make a good impression and not get fired from said great job. I personally never thought id be so happy to get back normality, Ive never valued routine so much, the steady paycheck, the weekend off with the rest of the world, the after work drinks (not to mention the usual media freebies, lunches and parties). If 4 months of job hunting has taught me one thing is never take it all for granted again!
So yea, i haven't really wanted to go near a computer after work sorry fellow bloggers and our Internet/phone was down all last week so sorry if the murmurs out of Camp Chris have been a bit quiet of late. Cant promise ill get any better, but hey ill give it some thought.
In a fantastic twist of fate, i found out i got the job before the long weekend at the start of May and they asked me to start the following Wednesday. What was i doing that weekend! Going to Venice! When do i get back? TUESDAY! perfect! What a way to celebrate other then many doses of great pizza, pasta, cured meat, coffee and wine!
We had a lovely time with some absolutely fantastic weather. It was a beautiful city but one i feel like I've done now and don't really need to do again for a while. Not taking anything away from it but it really is a tourist town,, and that's about it.
Here are the only photos Malin didn't manage to blog and i was left with,,,,,
Did you know Elton John drinks longnecks straight from the bottle! Crazy!
Good Venice tourist photo.....
Hey Timmay, bet you never learnt to play this one??? Its a Violin cross Trumpet, or as i have named it, a Vrumpet......
So yea that's work and holidays. Besides that Ive been up to the usual, going to clubs-getting drunk, going to house party's - getting drunk.
One such night a little while ago, after frequenting one of our favourite haunts, the uber cool can selling indie club - Metro. Me and Angus 'fell asleep' on the bus home and a fellow friendly resident of South London decided that we really didn't need the radiation that mobile phones are said to emit and charitably relived us from those evil cancer machines. Its ok though my housemate Lisa had 3 spare so i'm back in the tumour game....
hmm what else, Oh yea i went to hospital last Wednesday. Woke up in the middle of the night and i couldn't see out of one eye. Scary huh, so yea spent the early hours with the interesting patrons of Kings College Hospital, Camberwell, only for my friendly Dr to tell me that i had 'excess fluid' around my eye and that i should chow down on the anti inflammatorys and it will go down in a few days. Oh that's easy for you to say buddy! You don't look like a demented cyclops trudging around London, trying to hold serious meetings while counting how many times the person tried to avoid staring directly at it! And what the hell is EXCESS FLUID? where did this come from? Have i really been drinking that much tea? Have i just been crying inside and no body knows it but me?
For all you ER fans here is a shot we took before we left for the hospital, note Chris attempting to look sad and in pain.
So thats me for the last little bit, i know theres more and there are defiantly more photos but with my Camera out of action and Malin losing all her photos when her computer got sent to laptop hospital (nothing to do with excess fluid) im bit lacking.
Whats coming up? Well June seems to be an exciting month, off to see the mega, fantastic, super fun combo that is Daft Punk in none other then Londons Hyde Park in 2 weeks time. Got a little posse together and are hoping for some sunny weather, now the only thing left to do is figure out what to wear! At the moment I'm thinking my now standard red check gig shirt (for those unaware, please look to the Right Hand Side of this blog) but I'm hoping for some more inspiration closer to the day.
BBQ this weekend at our friend Hannah's house, well actually its Hannah's cats who hosting the BBQ, not entirely sure how this will work but it should be interesting. As long as i don't have to eat whiskers.
End of June sees the arrival of KC Bassett and also mini Bassett, Erin. Not entirely where were going to fit the second Basset but I'm sure we will figure something out. All very exciting!
So yea kids its been real, Lifes good, Thanks for the support, good to hear you all care.
Email me bitches.
Oh and Sarah, i think you need a new job.
