not a lot of tumblr posts from me this weekend. i apologise. the reason is encapsulated in this picture. well, this picture in addition to television shows and my couch. seriously, aside from that bike ride and a visit to the in-laws this morning all i have actually done this weekend is sit on my arse, watch dvds, play just cause 2 (pictured) and eat. and i mean eat - cheese, chocolate, pesto noodles, pies, etc etc. i have tried to health-up meals by piling fruit and veg on top of it though, you know like waffles with melted chocolate, marshmallow and syrup with a slice of banana and oily pesto and prawn noodles with four small tomatoes stirred in. i blame the bike ride for having to be on the couch due to using some muscles i didn’t realise i had neglected so much of late ahem but now i have replaced bruises with bed sores and i feel like an absolute lump. how come you feel like you have a massive pot belly and like you haven’t showered when you are sitting on the sofa all day? i swear i put make up on this morning but now i don’t have any on yet i did not wash my face today…
despite feeling like a complete greasy slob - much akin to bart in the simpsons when he mimics weight-gaining homer, saying “i wash myself with a rag on a stick” - it has been a very relaxing weekend. stuart was feeling a tad burnt out and maybe i was too (though i’d never know because i consume stress and manufacture it into doing things very very quickly and excessivley) so it’s been a good thing. tomorrow though i’m invigilating and i have a meeting with my supervisor re: the seemingly dire funding scenario which is unfolding. i think that’s why i needed to be a potato these last two days, physical rest to heal the emotional stress of what if i can’t pay for my house come september? i’m going to go to the gym too tomorrow to compensate for the ben and jerry’s sundae and pick n mix i plan to consume at the cinema with stuart and my brother in the evening. not that i went to the gym to compensate for the shit loads of easter eggs and wheatie crisps and milkshake jelly sweets i’ve been shovelling in today. oh well, life is good and playing just cause 2 totally makes you feel like you are on an tropical island, albiet one run by an insane dictator where your primary aim is to maim/run over/shoot in the head people. nice landscapes.
today i have been playing dress up with my couch, rick danko
(yes, that is the name of my couch: if you know why that is it’s name then please tell me, because i will think you are awesome; and if you don’t know what or who rick danko is/are then you are a lesser version of a self you could be)
