I somehow got a grade 2 pass for my latest OU course (79% exam, 75% average continuous assessment), despite doing no revision, and turning up to the exam drunk. Shame \I didn't study harder, I could prolly have done a bit better, but still...

I'm Abseiling off the Forth Rail Bridge on Sunday in aid of Alzheimer Scotland. Because I'm stupidly disorganised I've only raised about £35 in sponsorship so far, and I need to get at least £100. If anyone can help that would be great :) (I need name / address / amount as minimum details please comment (screened) or email).

Thanks to wolfette for reminding me to post here!

Mood: hopeful.
The not drinking is going well, except soft drinks get really boring after 3, I tend to want to be home by 10.30, and I feel hungover in the morning anyway (tho I think this is mostly down to suffering from sleep paralysis (and possibly sleep apnoea: I feel hypoxic anyway!). Thank you for all the supportive messages :)

Work is sucking massively in just about every way possible, and is sapping my will to do *anything*.

I'm also having a phase of massive social phobia (for large groups, individuals aren't so bad), so I may or may not be out next weekend (I'm hiding this weekend).

I should also do some studying this weekend.

I have given up drinking. Probably won't be up for much socialising either. Still, might mean I'm not as broke, and I may even lose the beer gut.

Next week's challenge: give up smoking...

Subject:What's Your Personality Type?
Time:9:22 pm.
You Are An INTP
The Thinker

You are analytical and logical - and on a quest to learn everything you can.
Smart and complex, you always love a new intellectual challenge.
Your biggest pet peeve is people who slow you down with trivial chit chat.
A quiet maverick, you tend to ignore rules and authority whenever you feel like it.

In love, you are an easy person to fall for. But you're not an easy person to stay in love with.
Although you are quite flexible, you often come off as aloof or argumentative.

At work, you are both a logical and creative thinker. You are great at solving problems.
You would make an excellent mathematician, programmer, or professor.

How you see yourself: Creative, fair, and tough-minded

When other people don't get you, they see you as: arrogant, cold, and robotic

Your result for Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

You Are a Jackie!


You are a Jackie. "I do everything the right way."


Jackies are realistic, conscientious, and principled. They strive to live up to their high ideals.



How to Get Along with Me


* Take your share of the responsibility so I don't end up with all the work.


* Acknowledge my achievements.


* I'm hard on myself. Reassure me that I'm fine the way I am.


* Tell me that you value my advice.


* Be fair and considerate, as I am.


* Apologize if you have been unthoughtful. It will help me to forgive.


* Gently encourage me to lighten up and to laugh at myself when I get uptight, but hear my worries first.



What I Like About Being a Jackie


* Being self-disciplined and able to accomplish a great deal


* Working hard to make the world a better place


* Having high standards and ethics; not compromising myself


* Being reasonable, responsible, and dedicated in everything I do


* Being able to put facts together, coming to good understandings, and figuring out wise solutions


* Being the best I can be and bringing out the best in other people



What's Hard About Being a Jackie


* Being disappointed with myself or others when my expectations are not met


* Feeling burdened by too much responsibility


* Thinking that what I do is never good enough

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, they were much appreciated, and I had a great birthday (I'm only just back from York, which is why I haven't replied before).

Birthday greetings to everyone who has (had) a birthday coming up or just past, there seem to be rather a lot of you, I hope y'all have as much fun as I did!

<lj-cut="work rant">

Boss informed me I had caused "an upset", by, basically, being right about something, and insisting I was, resulting in a big TL confab (apparently), upshot of which was that I was right, and should carry on with said case in the way I thought. (he threw away my referral paper because it was "messy", ie there was evidence of him being wrong on it). He didn't seem too chuffed...

Later in the afternoon I was called in for a "back to work" interview (ie what you get if you've been off sick). I haven't been off sick since October. Was mildly perturbed when told I'd exceeded my sick day quota for the twelvemonth, and was about to question it when he realised he'd made a mistake, and written a running total of days off in the last year in a vertical column, then <i>added them up</>, resulting in me having apparently had 15 days off since last feb, when in fact I'd only had 6 (4 of which were in feb). I wasn't best chuffed by his "well I suppose that cou;ld happen to anyone female" comment (after the discussion about when I was off due to spomtaneous-allergy-to-hair-product incident), followed up by "here's hoping you don't get the virus going round at the moment" comment.
All after yesterday's being told off for putting in inaccurate figures (I realised that the way I'd been adjusting then that I was making one of my averages worse, and quite frankly I just couldn't be bothered last friday - I don't quite see the problem with doing 5.21 mandays' worth of work in 4 days, but there you go...

</lj-cut>

I'm soooo glad we're on strike tomorrow! (yes, I am going shopping, rather thatn picketing/demo-ing, I need to get my course set texts (course is "Exploring History: Medieval to Modern 1400-1900), and I may as well spend the rest of my voucher collection (which I found when I moved house!) when I have someone to shop with, as shopping isn't an activity I enjoy much. I think the lack of Saturdayness may make it a more survivable experience too.
And the eveing rounds off with the second leg of the Spurs/Arsenal game (highly entertaining as other half is a Gunner, our other flatmate is a Spurs fan, so the commentary/baiting is highly amusing! Hopefully it'll be as good a game as last week.
