I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
Actually, future generations will feel much WORSE than you and I because, supposedly, technology is happening exponentially faster every day. So they’ll be like, fucking cars? REMEMBER THAT? Like before androids, amiright?
I like to imagine the future as an episode of Time Trumpet:
“Ovens? I’ll just pop it in the oven” …What was all that about?!
I understand that, conceptually, but as a business owner it’s his responsibility to generate sales and maintain clients. It sucks that business is bad, but that aspect isn’t your fault. It should have been discussed well before now if there’s that much of a problem.
He already declared insolvency last year, which by the way he told it, was going to be a new beginning for the place, rising from the ashes a new company, stronger than before. Turns out, it’s just as shit.
why dont you drop hints/threaten to leave if he doesn’t get it together?
I don’t think he realises that without me, this place would collapse. He genuinely thinks he could do it all ( even though he currently complains that he doesn’t have time in the day to do his own job as it is, let alone taking on my workload! )
I thoroughly recommend getting another full-time job. There is absolutely nothing for you to gain by staying there part-time. Surely it will be harder to find a part-time job and then your tax-rate will be higher. Your one and only priority is Sophie
I’d assumed that it would be easier for me to find a part time job….I mean, everyone is complaining at the minute about there not being any jobs, and I ( possibly wrongly ) assumed they meant careers, rather than just like shop work.
It’ll all come down to what I find available. If there are any full time jobs going, that are able to pay my bills, then that’s the route I’ll take. But if not, I may have to go the road of having several part time jobs….even thou, yes, that’ll fuck my tax in the ass.
what a dick.
I’d look for another one entirely, if you can. I’d certainly say that with an attitude like that your boss deserves to have no employees at all and end up with his business suffering properly.
….ah jeezo. Fucks sake. To be honest, he’ll only realise what you do when you aren’t there, bud. And this shit always happens for a reason. There’s a better job out there for you. Start being proactive as fuck about looking.
In his defense…it’s not entirely out of spite. The business is just being run aground by “interesting” managerial decisions.
Fundamentally, if I left, the place would cease to be…which is why I was thinking of finding a second job, rather than just out right ditching this one. But we’ll see.
Nothing is finalised yet. Hell, we might have a good spell of sales and everything will be rosy, and I’ll be kept on 5day a week. Or, I might work 5 mornings, and have every afternoon off…or work Monday, Tuesday, Thursday. I have no idea. Nothing has been discussed beyond the boss saying “we can’t really afford to keep going at this rate, so hows about you work less days”.
So…..anyone want to make an objective assessment regarding:
I know how you feel. :( I would 10 hour night shift so I wake up at 9pm, go to work, run my errands in the morning, don’t make it home till 11am or later, shower, eat, sleep, repeat. It sucks being an adult.
It’s called growing up. It’s called being a dad. It’s the inevitable shift in priorities. But all anyone can do is not be hard on one another and remember that friendship means not being a dick to people you don’t spend all your time with :)
Soph slept in her own bed, in her own room the past 3 nights.
I think she’s getting the hang of it, even though we have been bringing her back in at about 5am ( she just wont settle then ).
So, the theory is, once we get into this routine where she goes to sleep at a normal time, and Katie and I are able to get a decent sleep at night, our evenings wont be such a write off as they are just now.
We’ll be able to do stuff! Tidy the flat! Watch a movie together! Get a baby sitter in and we can sneak out to the cinema to see Brave on a big screen!
In short, once Katie and I get back into getting sleep at night, we’ll be back to normal.
So basically someone needs to draw you an anime style pin up girl in a pink nautical inspired dress holding a sloth and a cup of coffee.
And the pinup girly is astride on the back of a Tapir, and the Tapir is playing a Gameboy, and there are some Katy Perry lyrics around it all like a halo.
Does your boss not have business insurance to cover things like this? Do you have that there? Small businesses have that often here in case the shop gets messed up and people are off work for a bit til it gets fixed, etc.
The boss, who has just arrived, is of the opinion that “it’s not worth it..they’ll put the premiums up for the next 5 years!”
The recent trend for car insurance companies to offer the ability to claim, without it affecting your “no claims bonus” was brought in for people like my boss.
Maybe I’m the naive one, since I’ve never claimed house insurance and don’t have a car, but I figure the reason you pay £X per month, is so that you can get something back when shit goes down.
Ah well. He’s the boss, eh?
My issue has always been, regardless of the quality of the coffee, why would I visit a shop named after a megalomaniacal emperor who near destroyed Rome? It’s very Italian, yes, but reflective of a particularly embarrassing figure in history…
See, a lot of people only remember him for what he did to Rome. But everyone seems to forget that he brought computer and audio piracy to the mainstream masses ¬_¬
bust out the party hats!
Here! You’re local! Come in and save me! lol
Ach. Dude. That sucks that you guys couldn’t even go to the pub or something. I know he’s your boss and jobs are thin on the ground, but dude needs to get boundries sorted. I feel bad for you mate.
Um. Yeah, I know what you mean. Small companies mean the bosses have no idea that you have a life outside of their business. I work at a company w/ 5 people, 2 are owners, and it’s the same thing. We don’t get a party. And I work the 26th too. :-/
I mean, we’ll see. I could be wrong. But I’ve been here 6 years, and this is the first year since I’ve joined that we’re having a Christmas thing.
The story goes that in the years before I came, they went to a local pub but “the music was so loud, we couldn’t just chat”.
Dude….I work with you 40 odd hours a week. I see you more than I see my family. I’ve had plenty of time to “chat”, and anytime I’ve every offered anything into a conversation you just talk louder over the top of me and repeat the same pun/joke until you get a response from every single person in the room. Individually.
*sigh* We’ll see how it goes. It’s 8 hours away yet…
In fact, that’s another thing. I finish work at 5.15. The thingy dosn’t officially start until 6. I intend to go home in that time. I suspect I’m to stay and “tidy things up before the party”. I might use the excuse of I’m going home to get my camera….God knows we’ll want to remember these fun times. ¬_¬
My thing is - the beauty of Lomo cameras is that they’re cheap + accessible. The quirks are beautiful, but they exist because they come from a junky, plastic, camera. Just BUY ONE + use it because making “artfully” lomo’d photos is fake anway.
Yea, part of the beauty of the lofi approach is the organic nature of the failures: of not knowing what the light leaks will look like, the uncertainty of the focus, even just simple things like “did I remember to take the cap off this time?” lol
And I’m all for folk who want to edit their photos to match that style. But when someone has been banging on about this expensive camera they were getting, and how high tech and awesome it is…..only to shit all over that with every single photo….
It’s just baffling.
japaneseanimeuk.com/Sai… Meet Sailor Mercury: quiet, genius with an unusual love of mini skirts for a geeky type and blue hair. Everything an awkward budding lesbian could want.
She is cute! OK, I’ll allow it.
It’s just the blonde Sailor Scouts that I dislike ¬_¬
I would love to be in the Sucker Punch photo shoot. Favorite. Movie.
ALSO SNOW WHITE! I’d be a great Snow White. I’m super pale, have short/dark hair as well.
So……Snow White with a katana? Sounds ace! ^_^
You know I’d do Wonder Woman for ya! I want an excuse to make the Golden Age costume lol
What’s the difference betwixt the Golden Age outfit and the one you have?
God dammit, Sailor Jupiter? What about the others? I want Sailor Mercury!
As a kid, I had such a huge crush on Jupiter. The rest, I didn’t even bother to learn their names. lol
sky-rim, but I guess people can say it how they like, just like Ti-dus and people saying teed-us (from ffx)
Sky. Rim. No one in the whole game says skeerim.
My sister, her husband, my wife and I all say “Sky-Rim” (or Sky-Rum sometimes w/ out American accents) so… Skee-Rum????
Cheers guys! I had that sudden feeling that I was the one being a prick.
You’d think I’d be used to it by now. You wouldn’t believe how many ways there are to say SATA, ASUS or ROCCAT, names I have to deal with every single day. Plus, customers are idiots and I hate them.
Hobo beard and the tshirt!
The only comment I have is that she probably doesn’t mind beards seeing as her husband has some scruff of his own.
Well, I think you’ll probably be ok for seeing the show, trim but keep beard (it isn’t like Russell is clean shaven at all times, is it?).
She’s married to russel brand..he has a beard!
Brand’s beard is relatively tidy….it’s just his head hair that’s batshit mental and all over the place, that makes him look he perpetually wants “50p for the bus pal? A needs to get to the hospital, because my sister is oan fire and the doctors need me to donate my liver. Go oan, buddy, it’s just 50p, like? Fur ma sister?”
I’ve never styled my beard before. It’s always been very binary: Beard; No Beard. I’m not even sure I know how to style it…..But I can try.
But I’m glad there have been no objections to the tshirt. In my mind, she’s never seen it before, and then when I stroll up, she’s all over me like a rash! lol
You won’t hit city centre traffice cos the SECC is closer to you than the city :) It’s easy to get to from your side.
Clearly, you’ve never been driven anywhere by Kat. lol. Don’t tell her I said that.
But really, she doesn’t enjoy driving in or around Glasgow, because she doesn’t know the roads, and, fuck, even the road signs don’t seem to know the way. Using the phone as a GPS then. How 2011 is it!
People always do that without announcing it, and then they change their photos, and I don’t know who they are anymore! It makes me sad.
I follow too many people to go through my list to find people,especially when they change their icon too.
By all means, folk can change their URL and what, but Tumblr should have an “address book” feature, where it retains a RELATIVE addressing, rather than ABSOLUTE. So, I’d start to type a persons name or URL and it would suggest from those that I follow, and be smart enuff to know that YYY.tumblr used to be XXX.tumblr.
I dunno, maybe I’m just cranky because I’m tired and sore. Meh.
There’s healthcare but it isn’t free. It’s required with tax rebates for people who can’t afford it. Basically, when it takes effect, it won’t provide me many benefits but will cost me more than I spend. Conservatives kept it from being worthwhile.
Conservatives ruin everything over there too? Well, that’s one thing that unites us. lol.
The US government really needs quite a shake up, from what I can tell. I mean, the UK one isn’t all that great either, but we have some fundamentals in place; healthcare, holiday allowance, mandatory “cake on your birthday” laws, and spending a couple of trillion £/$ a year maintaining our nuclear program.
Our nuclear program that is, 2 Trident submarines sitting in an inland lake 11 months of the year. lol.
