What Pauly Did Next... pt 2
I was chastised last weeek for having kept the last post at the top for so long, "Every time I click on, I see 3 faces of AIDS! How depressing!"
I know hon, I see it every day in the mirror.
Anyway, what a great summer we're having eh? Wimbledon starts today, welcomed in by the usual first day showers, Big Brother is actually quite entertaining (well it is when you get in from work at 1am and there's bugger all else on the telly except the Learning Zone!) and we're through to the quarter finals in the World Cup.
Now, it may not surprise you to know that I'm not the greatest of footie fans, but, like many others, however I do get into it when there's a big tournament on...and this year, I've actually started watching it in a pub!
I've always avoided this in the past due to the obvious risk of a room full of pissed-up straight guys taking exception to a poof in their midst. However this time, one of my favourite pubs, Comptons, has started showing the matches on a big screen in their top bar. As you can see from the pic, it gets very busy when the suns out!
So now I can watch the England boys in the midst of some sporty boyz, and its a great atmosphere! I would highly recommend it if you're in Soho when there's a match on!!
I nearly had a 'thing' again with the Hairdresser.... despite him now 'sort of seeing someone' and all the history we've had. It lasted one night, then the next night, at a party which we just both happened to be at, he ended up in the toilet with someone for half an hour; not only making a total embarrasment of himself but hurting me , again, to boot. I'm glad it happened though, it really made me get over him on the spot in a way that no amount of counselling ever could. That was over two weeks ago, and I've not thought about getting in touch with him since, not even to be angry. I'm just so over it.
I was also offered a job as an IT support analyst at our Head Office, but turned it down because the money wasn't a big enough rise to warrant me commuting to Uxbridge every day. Its a good 1hr 30mins from home, and the rise wouldnt even have covered the additional zones on the travel card! Shame though, as the training I would've got and the CV potential would've been great. They're still thinking about it, so I may yet get a better offer!
Promise to post sooner next time! Thanks for taking the time to read!
