bugger


As well as it being my least favorite day of the week -tuesday - i have just had some news which means for the first time in 5 years i have to move back home for a period greater than a few weeks, for an indefinate period
Bugger - this means getting up at the same time, spending 40 mins on a bus to get into work 1hr later (and cuz im on an hourly contract = less money)  I also have to quit my part time job in the lyric theatre as 80 miles a week for just 30 isnt feasible by any stretch of the imagination.
Also means that my social life will be taking a slight hit as randalstown isnt exactly the bright centre of the universe despite what some of the inhabitants may think, that and if i do head out in belfast i have to find a place to stay - which will entail sleeping on someones sofa, and probably not seeing some for my mates for a very long time
However, the plus side is that i wont be shelling out 200 notes each month for rent - only about 130 for the bus, and my bills will be reduced somewhat, and my dad is getting broadband in the house as well which is all well and good. 
Needless to say i still dont think that the benefits outweigh the fact that i will be back at home, away from most of my mates and having to account for my whereabouts whenever i step foot out the door or come in late.
Bugger
Well now i feel slightly better after getting that of my chest, back to databases

Whoah, that sounds heavy.  I'm sorry I can't be of any practical help down here in Bristol, but I have a couple of ears you can bash whenever you feel you need to vent.

My mother keeps trying to make us stay with her whenever we visit the area.  Problem is she insists on agreeing an itinerary in advance and locks the doors at 10pm and, worst of all insists on listening to Aled Jones at all times.


We usually stay with Vic's Dad when we're down there who doesn't care what we do.

Yeah, i may actually have a good bank balance for the first time in 5 years Nope, hang on, the student loan company want their money back - selfish gits its only about 15k


Bugger bugger bugger - needless to say i will be attempting to move back out as soon as i get home - i usually go home for only a few days and then the novelty wears off and i have to get out before i go nutz.  Yes its good to see them again, but then I get smothered - every little thing is questioned -where are you going who with what for when will you be back your not wearing that are you that needs ironed whos that (no commas are deliberate, because that implies that there is a breath/pause between the questions)


Also means that my mum will have me doing all the jobs that my dad wont/cant do, bugger.


Nope, venting isnt helping - im gonna have to go do something  - like quad biking or paintball or something.


So bloody frustrating!!!


Is aled anything like daniel o'donnel? My dad insists on listening to him..


sorry, I do really need to vent, because i know i cant when im at home and this is the only place i can do so during the day - the ones in work tonite will be getting this as well

Your poor parents devoted the best years of their life to bringing you up proper, like and all you can do is moan about em!  You are a bad boy!  Go to your room!

Dont get me wrong, my parents are great, but after not living with them for aforementioned years i am used to doing my own thing, when i want without having to explain myself etc and that is the part im dreading the most


However i have explained to them that I will be moving back the first chance that I get, and they seem to understand why - I have never been much of a homebird - i like my own space and freedom too much

Hey man, I totally feel your pain. When I had to move back home I got the lecture that I had to tell her every move I make so she always knew where I was. Then, when I moved out again, if I didn't call her every two days she'd call the cops to make sure I was still alive.


My condolences man... I know how much that has to suck for ya...

The one possible up side has just ben blown out of the water - the money saving aspect of this whole thing.

Using advanced mathematics and even being biased towards a move home being finacially better for me, i will actually be roughly 100 worse off!!

Double Bugger!

Perhaps if you were to share your calculations with us, we may be able to offer some sage (and onion) advice.


There is, of course, always the cardboard box option.

righto here goes


i go into work 1hr early - earning me 27.50 extra a week


i work part time in a theatre earning me 30 extra a week


thats a total of 230 extra a month - gives me a monthly wage of about 930 take home


take 200 out for rent = 730


take 50 out for bills = 680


i walk to work most days but to be on the safe side i will say it costs me 5.50 a week transport in belfast = 22 a month so now the total is 658


ok, say 60 a month on food - 598 roughly left for Joe


when i move home i have to quit the theatre and will not be able to get into my proper job for that extra hour


So i loose 230 straight away = 700


a monthly ticket from home is 130 = 570


home isnt free, 100 for me mum = 470 left for Joe


598-470 = 128approx worse off at home


See, maths wins again - unfortunately

100 for Mum?  That's 25 a week.  When I were a lad (about 8 years ago!  I must be getting old!) I was giving my mum 40 a week - and if it was a 5 week month it was a real basserd!


My own calculations at the moment look something like this:


(salary) - (mortgage + sundry bills) = sod all for darren.


So by my calculations, you ain't that badly off.  Still, maybe you should charge your mum for the additional chores around the house that she gives you and for the pleasure of your company.  I reckong 200 should do nicely.


I also broached the subject of Sundays with my mother recently - I shall explain:


Mother's Day come around annually and you buy your mum a card and a present.


Father's Day also comes around annually - again card and pressie is supplied.


Son Day, however comes on a weekly basis...

Hmm.. i like your reasoning and i wish to subscribe to your newsletter


The 100 a week figure is based on what my brother was paying, probably about 8 years ago as well, the price will undoubtably have risen, therefore costing me even more.


However i have just gotten an email from my ex girlfriend, whos in florida btw, teling me to get of my arse and look for somewhere, oh, and stop feeling sorry for myself


So thats that then, im looking more as of after work

It's all very well sitting around in Florida  issuing instructions.  If I was in Florida , I'd phone you up and tell you to get of your arse, but I'm not.  I'm in Bristol which, while similar to Florida in many ways is not sunny or even warm as a rule.


I may tell you to get of your arse anyway.


Yes.  I think I will.


Get off your arse.


There.  Done it.  That told you, you little scallywag!

RE: bugger


Three girls, eh?  Not sure whether to congratulate you or to commiserate.  There are advantages and disadvantages to that particular situation.


<whispers so the girls can't hear> are they all hot chicks? </whispers>

the two that i met seemed very nice people, like I say, they practically begged me to say yes - understandable really


Oh and for KTs info - i will be living right beside botanic gardens - and by right beside i mean i go out the front door and there it is, i'll be able to make a cup of coffee and just bring it right into the park  - and its close to the gym, so now i really have no excuse

In what way are botanic gardens different to any other garden?  Surely the word botanic simply refers to the fact that there is plant-life in the garden.  I have plant life in my garden.  Indeed, I have a botanic garden.


I live about 2 minutes walk from the gym too (not the same one, though I don't think), so I don't have an excuse either.  Except ones along the lines of 'But I'm really tired' and 'I don't wanna' or 'Can't. The A-Team's on!'.


<whispering again, so Vic can't hear> On the other hand, the sauna's usually full of fit birds, nyuk nyuk nyuk <whispering>.

ahh darren, how misguided you are - a botanic garden is a garden devoted to the culture of plants collected for the purpose of illustrating the science of botany - not alllll gardens have this function


>shakes head< so old, yet knows so little


back to you joe - wahoo! nice one.. you must be up the stranmillis end of town.. haha, i bet we pass in the street and dont even know it..


anyway - i've got to make my way to the top of the lisburn road today and have some of my wisdom taken away - well, perhaps not today, but some mean dentist is going to take it away at some point soon - to repeat the title of this thread - bugger

Bugger?  Your dentist must have an interesting technique.  Does he charge extra for this service?

OUCH


i am one quarter less wise - stupid dentist and having to cut my tooth in half stupid

still much wiser than me - i aint got no wisdom teef


I have to say that that is likely - although a girl i worked with and then started going out with (yes the one in florida) just lived around the corner from me for ages when i was living in stranmillis last year and we hardly ever saw each other in the street before we started going out.


But the thought of it makes me giddy with anticipation
