Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

Because my apartment DIDN'T burn down!

I was watching a movie with my roommate and girl friend on Saturday night when all of a sudden, boom boom boom boom on the door "everyone out, fire in the building!".

My cat is lucky he's so damn cute, because there were like 50 other things I wanted to grab, but alas, I grabbed my cat and we ran outside only to be greeted my 7 or 8 fire trucks and 15 foot flames shooting out the top of our building. Luckily, after about 30 minutes, the firemen were able to put out the fire.  The whole time I was shitting myself because a) there was a fire on the roof that could potentially spread to my apartment b) if the sprinkler system went off, my entire studio would've been destroyed...

Thank god neither or these things happened!

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

I'm happy because Bose decided that it wasn't my fault my headset broke, and gave me a new one!

wow! thats totally cool it didnt fuck you up. crazy stuff.

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

While we're on the subject of crazy stuff...

I managed to fell aleep in front of the telly on saturday. 4 o clock at night I woke up because I heard a weird sound. It turned out that the sound was coming from the sliding door out to the garden, which is about a couple of metres from me. The door had just been opened by some beared fellow, i had no idea who he was, and when I tried to ask him he didn't respond. He then entered, slipped of his shoes, and fell asleep on the couch right across the room. I was like "what the hell?", pinched my arm, and assured myself I wasn't still asleep and dreaming. I went over to the guy, and managed to wake him up after a couple of mins and asked him again who he was and what he was doing at my couch. He was apparently pretty drunk or stoned or summat, and it was pretty hard getting anything out of him.

When he first said something he complained about it being cold outside and that he liked my dog. He then went silent for some time while he was petting my dog (who in turn apparently enjoyed the company of a nightly visitor). When he started to speak again he said something about having a special "bond"/"connection" with my dog. I made it clear that he couldn't spend the night here, and he accepted that. He then continued to pet my dog for a while, before he stood up, put on his shoes, apoligized politely and headed out the same way he entered. I felt bad about not allowing him to sleep on the couch, because he seemed like a nice chap. Strange stuff.

Weeeiird. Guess your dog is not a watchdog then?

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

hey Robot Monster,

Was the drunk called Rune Danielson? It sounds about right for him

keep hackney crap

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

I think he said his name was Halvard or something similiar, I even shaked hands with the guy. I would've let him stay if he wore a bunker t-shirt wink

I guess my dog is useless as a guarddog. He barks all day, but that's mainly directed at birds. The dog was just happy that a stranger came by. I guess I should start locking doors before I go to bed or something.

I got a Moorish recipe book as a present from one of my best friends, and the first page I turned to in front of her was a recipe that had my name in it, haha!

Music is a beautiful opiate, if you don't take it too seriously.

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

I was eating breakfast in a cafe near my house, with my ex girlfriend and housemate, and i saw some guy wearing a creme organization t-shirt, so I was shouting at him from the window of the cafe to come over, I think he thought I was some weirdo because he looked over then hurried away
haha

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

Pretty extreme interview...what do you do?

Cheers man, I have my fingers crossed. I had to do a trial for the job too, not as intense as yours I think but I spent a lot of time on it still (its a graphic design job with a bit of marketing stuff rolled in, which will be new to me)

Re: Tell everyone why you are happy.

I work for Transport for London, currently organising school trips for little kiddies to go to museums. decent job but not very taxing.

The assessment was for the traffic control centre. sort of like air traffic control, but for the roads. tongue
