{ never give up on a good thing }  
§ The Pharmacy: My contract at work is being changed in that I'm no longer working every Saturday but instead will be working every second Saturday. I was a bit miffed about this to begin with (I actually like working Saturdays), but after mulling it over I realised that this change is actually going to work out way better for me than I'd first anticipated and so I've readily agreed to the change. I'll be alternating the Saturday's with my Mondays now, so every two weeks it means I'll end up with a three-day-weekend (FTW!). Which, wonderfully coincides with some of my weekends away which means I'm using less holidays and that my boss can no longer make a fuss about me taking the holidays I want because there will always be someone to cover them. WHOOP!

§ BFI Merlin Screening: Said change in contract takes affect from the 1st September, which means that my first week of the new contract will end up with my having a three-day weekend. How stoked am I?! XD ...which got me thinking right, because there's apparently this Merlin screening happening the very same weekend, with six of the main cast members in attendance... and there's still some tickets left... and I've just been paid... and well, can you guess where my mind is going with this? My only drama would be finding someone to go with and just where on earth this thing actually is because me and georgraphy fail on epic proportions! heh. But otherwise, any takers? ...this is just a whim atm but if I can find someone to go with and can arrainge cheap transportation (possibly accomodation) between now and then, then I am so there!

§ Collecto-Glasgow: Am very excited for this coming weekend as some of my girlies will be travelling up to sunny Scotland for Collecto-Glasgow as well as copious amounts of fangirling over the couple days following on from it. WHOOP! Cannot wait.
§ In other news: I've not had any Irn Bru, not even a whiff of the stuff, for ...nine days now. NINE DAYS, WTF!? O_O... and to think I was drinking the stuff like I was breathing air, this is somewhat of a worrisome revalation. WOAH. I have instead been drinking copious amounts of Guava juice (South African stuff) and am worrying that I've developed a new (and far more costly) habit. EEP. Especially as I'm going through this new stuff far more quickly that I did the bru. Fellow Scots, send help, asap! XD

Fear not! We will get you re-addicted to the bru this weekend! Maybe we can try and get Kai addicted too! XD

That's good news about your contract too hun! And as for the Merlin thing, I would come with you if I had the money... also I'll be in Cardiff, hugging the city to death after being so far away from it for so long.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ S3 \\ Gwen smirkcs_whitewolf on August 26th, 2009 06:49 pm (UTC)
Most likely... I should be out of Guava juice by then anyway XD heh. Ooo I think we should endeavour to get Kai addicted to it!

I thought so too, after I stopped hissing at the very idea of change XD lmao. I shouldn't be spending my money thus, I'm meant to be saving up to move out but well...! XD which reminds me actually, how did you go about finding someplace to stay in Cardiff? Whilst being up here I mean. I haven't the first clue how to even start going about something like this :S

I'm going to the Merlin BFI screening! I'm not particularly confident I could find the bloody place again, though. I've been once before, but its in the evening and I got hideously lost. I had to ask a tramp for directions! I hasten to add that this isn't my fault: if you haven't been before, the BFI is difficult to find because it's under a goddamn bridge. Who the hell designed that?! Should be a fun evening, though.

Oooh, and have fun at Collecto-Glasgow! I very much wanted to crew that, but it's just too far away. Is anybody good going?
Campaspe: Merlin \\ Merlin; smirky facecs_whitewolf on August 26th, 2009 06:54 pm (UTC)
heh, that's comforting to know- if in doubt, ask tramp! XD heh. If I do end up going I shall look out for you then. Do you know if there is anymore info to it than what's up on the website?

I shall do! ...No one really exciting is going, tbh. I'm mostly going for Kai Owen and the chick who plays Tonks in HP. Them and the banter sure to be had with my girlies, lol. So though it's sure to be a quiter day in terms of crewing, it's nothing too fun XD

OMG!!!! I'm so tempted by this there's one thing I need to know, Do you know how much tickets are? Pretty sure the date is okay for me. BFI is the National Film Theatre which is on the Southbank in London. I believe Embankment is the nearest tube (but I'll check)

YAY collecto Glasgow I'm so excited about this I'm so looking forward to seeing you all WOOT friday!!!

Campaspe: HP \\ Severus; smileycs_whitewolf on August 26th, 2009 06:56 pm (UTC)
Around £9 for an adult according to the website :D heh. Lemme know!

Cannot wait to see you guys, should be real fun!

No Bru in NINE DAYS? This will not do! Not one bit.

I still don't know if I'm coming up to Collecto-Glasgow or not. I asked my mum what we're doing this weekend and she said "Don't know" *headdesk*

Sounds like you got a good deal out of this new contract malarky though.

Merlin screening - oh how I want to go and see this. But I'm hoping since it's close then it won't be long till it's back on TV :D
Campaspe: Merlin \\ I shall call you squishycs_whitewolf on August 27th, 2009 05:32 pm (UTC)
I know. I feel like such a failure :O ...but fear not! It looks like I'll be back on it come the weekend, sadly my Guava doesn't last all that long, lol.

Well you can gimme a text, either/both days, and lemme know if you're on your way :) it'd be great to see you if you do come!

I got an awesome deal! ...maybe the best one out of the whole lot of them so I'm defo not complaining XD

fingers crossed it'll be back on screen soon! I suppose we'll find out at the screening so if I do end up going I can let you know :)
desertrose9desertrose9 on August 26th, 2009 07:44 pm (UTC)
I really wanted to go to the BFI screening but my problem is getting there...and the fact I need to be back sunday night cause I have class Monday.
Campaspe: Merlin \\ I shall call you squishycs_whitewolf on August 27th, 2009 05:33 pm (UTC)
The only way I've found of getting home on the Sunday/Monday would be an overnight bus that gets back into Glasgow at the crack of dawn. That or really expensive flights. So looks like I may need to stay overnight if I do go :S

Awww cool! I really wish I had a job lately instead of sitting on my arse all day but there aren't any that I can do. I'd freak out if I worked in a fast food joint, and the only way of having a good chance of getting a retail job is references, and everyone forgets about who I am.

I would love to go but sadly I lack the money if I'm going to Hub3.

GAAAAAH I WANNA GO CM GLASGOW!! *pouty face* Have fun and tell me all about it when you get back!
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 1.12 \\ Jack2; A Kisscs_whitewolf on August 27th, 2009 05:38 pm (UTC)
I'm with you on that- I could never work in a place that deals with food :S I'd be put off entirely for life! Aww that's not good! Especially not with how things are jobwise at the moment :(( hopefully you'll find something soon though!

::pets:: If I go I shall tell you all about it!

WOE! Wish you could have come too! ::smoochy:: but we'll have uber fun and make up for it at the hub X)

It looks about as sea-worthy as a rubber duck!harem_ent on August 26th, 2009 10:26 pm (UTC)
Firstly - Three day weekends FTW indeed! I, being a poor and lazy soon-to-be Uni student am heavily unemployed (huzzah) and am hoping to have written a genius musical based on Jeeves and Wooster before I actually have to get a job, but even I can see the overall kickassness of having a long weekend.

Secondly - OMGZ EPIC MERLIN!FLAIL. I am so excited about the new season. And you should go to the screening, if only to get stalky pictures of the cast and send them to me, with the appropriate smutty comments and lick marks.

RE In Other News - Ew, Irn Bru, what are you thinking? I care not if it is your national culture and heritage to drink, it's icky. Step away! Drink something better, like...cloudy lemonade! Or Dandelion and Burdock! (Though the Guava juice sounds like all mad kinds of fun! My costly drink of choice at the moment in Earl Grey. I feel posh and ladylike when I drink it, though unfortunately, I had to decide this only weeks before going to Uni when I will have to start funding myself. I fear I shall either have to say goodbye to the tea, or to breakfasts. *weeps*)
Campaspe: Original \\ Caspe's Tits FTWcs_whitewolf on August 27th, 2009 06:06 pm (UTC)
LMAO, thank you! XD I am going to be appreciating it muchly, heh.

I thought you'd approve of the idea at least ;) I really do want to go! I'm just checking out a few things first before confirming it for defo!

IRN BRU IS THE DRINK OF THE GODS! Never diss it, less you feel the wrath of the Caspe! XD heh. EWW cloudy lemonade?! And I haven't even heard of the other thing! lmao. Guava is delish! Though sadly I'm running out of it far too swiftly, may have to invest in larger quantities next time! I'm not a tea drinker myself I'm afraid, but well if it's anything like the Bru I'd forsake breakfast ;D

Woman some times I think you are the little devil sitting on my shoulder convincing me to do all these things I can't afford:P

Would love to but no way I can.

So looking forward to this weekendXD Just need to tidy up my room lol.

Does 8 oclock sound ok for Hard Rock Monday?

Who me? ::innocent face:: heh.

That's quite alright, hun! I shouldn't even be considering it myself, but... well... you know me and willpower XD hehehe

This weekend will be epic! I have an amazing plan btw, I say we get some square sausage and potatoe scones and introduce the girls to a proper Scottish breakfast Satuday morning! They can't diss it once they've tried it!

Anytime for the Hard Rock works for me :)

Yay for new contract!! See I'm lucky with my hours, I'm a permant 16hrs each week now (yay me!) but still only weekday worker, cause we have about 6 staff for weekends so I very rarely need to work weekends! XD Even Glasgow I have only been given 5hrs holiday time for it, Yvette just rota'd me on to work the weekend after! XD So I've hardly used any holidays up!! XD

Oh now I'm intrigued for the Merlin thing I'll come!! Of course I'd need to know dates and where abouts it is! LOL.

Glasgow, I am so very looking forward to this, I need a break!! Badly!! but yay not long now!! XD
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.01 \\ Ianto fucking Jonescs_whitewolf on August 27th, 2009 06:10 pm (UTC)
I'm around 41hours a week, lol, so I'm a bit less flexible when it comes to shifting my days but thankfully this time it's worked out brilliantly for me X) I've got all my hols booked from now till the new year and it looks like I'll still have a week left to take between Jan-April, so I'm not doing too shabbily! heh.

Squee! We can chat about it when you're down this weekend :D ...it's Sunday 6th September, so next weekend?

Looking forward to seeing you, babes! ::snugs::

I think you should go to the Merlin screening and kidnap Bradley James and overnight him to me. :-9
Campaspe: Merlin \\ Arthur; hello I love youcs_whitewolf on September 3rd, 2009 05:51 pm (UTC)
Alas I've decided not to go afterall! :(( I can't really justify spending the amount of money it'll cost me to travel down to London for a day or two. WOE. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll get to meet these boys one day!
