Morose little bugger

(no subject)

Today may be a good day to travel to London. Leave for London at about 2, have a little wander, back home for 6. That'd be clever.

Yet, there's not much around London I really fancy doing. Two key places to go would be Cyberdog (attempt to take back Jess' t-shirt) and Virgin Megastores (5 for £30 offer on DVDs/music CDs, I feel in a hoarding mood). However, it would be something, instead of the usual relatively nothing.

But if I go out, I have to preen myself. Eventually I will have to anyway. The effort required to run a bath seems too much for me at the moment.

I don't like this week.

How to kick unproductivity up the arse.

Wake up whenever the sky looks grey, in this instance 11 AM. Decide to go run a bath so I don't look a mess.

Look at the sky as I get out of the bath, the same shade of grey. Decide to write in LJ and decide to get £20 out of the bank to send to

Look at the sky as I get out of the bath, the same shade of grey. Decide to write in LJ and decide to get £20 out of the bank to send to <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/boingobaby/">Sel</a></b>, because I said I would a few days ago but have been a whiny unproductive git recently.

Watch the sky get darker before I leave. Decide to go into London instead, to be a bit different. At the same time I watch the Mega64 trailer and convert the theme to an mp3 for <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/shortymst3k/">Neil</a></b>.

Watch the rain start to come down hard just before I leave. Shrug and take an umbrella.

In London, I buy Cliff a Terminator 3 DVD he's wanted for a while and buy the Blackadder DVD boxset for myself on a whim after seeing it for a "sale price".<sup>1</sup> I also get <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/jessicapadkin/">Jess</a></b>' t-shirt changed around at last, because I said I would a few days ago but have been a whiny unproductive git recently.

Come back home, notice the rain starting to loom again. Decide to go to the cinema. Monster starts at 8:45. I fancy watching that. <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/holly_ziviene/">Holly</a></b> offers me Shaun of the Dead posters. I take her up on this offer. I like the idea of having more posters in this room.

Hear the rain start to come down hard as I type this up. Shrug and grab the umbrella again, and a plastic bag to hold the umbrella in while the film will be watched.

I feel a bit better today. I forced myself to do something, and I'm enjoying the results.

<lj-cut text="Footnote:"><sup>1</sup>A "sale price" to me is effectively the price it'd cost for the item online, in a shop, so I can take the item home there and then.
