Jenny had got her new car the day before and picked me up from work and took me home. When I’d got changed and straightened my hair (took an hour FML) she took me out for food, cinema then the pub. She is everything I look for in a man aha! I highly reccomend Your Highness. I’ve not laughed at a film so hard that much in ages. It’s genius! So after pissing ourselves laughing and nearly regurgitating our Chiquitos we drove to Spoons (ugh) for a quick drink with Dave and Craig, which in all fairness was pleasant.
Popped down to Winsford for my cousin Gary’s surprise 30th birthday. It was brilliant. Was great to see everyone there and also meet Gary’s soon-to-be inlaws, who are all lovely…even if they are Southerners! Was pretty sweet that everyone was congratulating me on getting my apprenticeship and got a few offers from my cousins about letting me practice on them. Drinking from 1 in the afternoon followed by a kfc for tea on the way home and (guilty pleasure, soz) Britain’s Got Talent is a sure-fire win.
After 2 and a half years it was my last shift ever at Topman! Yaaaaaay! Was boring as fuck. Didn’t even get a whip round. Tight bastards. I brought in Thornton’s chocolates and a thank you card and everything…
Ah well, was more than happy to see the back of it! Apart from a few people who have become friends for life who I will continue to get wasted with at Fac/Venue on a regular basis :) So gonna have my leaving do in a few weeks after pay day so that’s something to look forward to.
So I have my tattoo career ahead of me now.
Scary. But cool as fuck.
Off to dye my hair. Hopefully I’ll be a silva foxxxxxxx
Just had one of those days where everything/one is hilarious, I’m £90 up and got bought a KFC for tea. YES!
…and was walking home from work and there’s a dick head on a skateboard on the other side of the road, proper greasy-looking with glasses and long hair and seeing that I happened to glance in his general direction he thought he’d be a smart arse and try to impress by attempting a flip but he hadn’t picked up enough speed and just fell on his hands/face.
I laughed all the way home. Wanker.
Got Faith No More on at the moment seeing as I’ve had Epic in my head all day lol
Wednesdays suck. We don’t have any appointments til 12/1 because James has the morning off so it’s just me and Coza from half 9 listening to shit radio, drinking endless coffee and staring out the window. But things got interesting when he came back from Co Op with a special 3D edition of Nuts magazine ahaha! So I got to see Jodie Marsh’s ridiculous nose and shit tattoos in glorious 3D and it was like I could actually reach out and grab her knockers :’) hilarity.
Get Wednesdays off as of next week so that’s all good :)
Had this lady in who’s in the process of getting a mermaid cover up on her upper arm for the last few weeks and she was in again today. She’s mint. She goes to fetish clubs and whips old men ‘til they bleed. Yes, really.
Then Sammy T came to see me which was cool seeing as I haven’t seen him since NYE :( booo!
Towards the end of the afternoon we had some footballers from Coventry and Scunthorpe who are regulars getting various sleeve work finished. So we had a photographer down from the Manchester Evening News to take a few snaps and get a little article about the shop together which is sweet for publicity :)
And in other news; I’m sick of perverts in white vans. I can’t walk anywhere today without being leered at.
"I love tattoos but I don’t want to be one of those tattooed freaks."
to which James, Dave and I all went “OH THANKSSSSSS…”
and she says “Aww no I mean, it’s alright for you, you’re lads.”
I was stood right next to her and we she had previously been talking to me about some sexist prick in a night club who had said “Why’s your tattoo there (down the outside of her arm), girls don’t have tattoos there.”
