Why didn't I work? I thought October was supposed to be decent. Well, I had five days but the last two were cancelled. And five days isn't so good. Two days a week is my minimum goal.
I already have 10 days of shit for November, although the first one has already cancelled. Still...that already meets my 2 days a week goal. One of them is a job in Dubai, but I'll only be there virtually. I'm going to see how much this shit pays and whether or not it's worth my time.
Let's see...according to this fee schedule they sent last year, I figure this should be $360. That's £271. That's not bad. It's more than I make doing my main job. And this will be on a Sunday and just sitting at home in my underpants.
So see how it goes. It depends on how much work is involved. You know, in the Middle East, Sunday is a work day. Their weekends are Friday and Saturday. It's fun to learn.
Let's check out some Facebook action. This woman who bought a dive bar had a Halloween party there. Did I mention that she's absolutely enormous now? This is a girl who liked me in high school. I really dodged a bullet there. She's HUGE. How did it happen? She was slim in high school. Her daughter, who's 19 now, is slim. That's just pure binging. There's no genetic component there.
Somebody asks if she's hiring. This woman looks to be my age. That's just sad. She has a Manchester heart picture. Did something happen in Manchester in May? Why is she supporting Manchester? It's the city in England, by the way, not any of the Manchesters in the US (e.g. the one in New Hampshire).
It's a bit lame to rip off names from the Old Country. At least stick "new" in front, like the state of New Hampshire did. Of course, there's New York. That used to be called New Amsterdam when it was under Dutch rule. There's New Orleans. That used to be in a French colony, of course. There's a New London in Connecticut. I've been through there. It's just a small town. New Ipswich in New Hampshire. Wow, there's also a New London in New Hampshire. New Hyde Park? That's going too far. Hyde Park isn't even a city. New London in North Carolina too. And Ohio. And Pennslyvania. And Wisconsin. Oh, there's a New Manchester in West Virginia.
Hey, this woman is engaged now. Good for her. For a while she was "it's complicated". Then "in a relationship". Now "engaged". There must be chubby chasers out there. This guy isn't exactly Mr Olympian but he's an average build.
Maybe I should get a new suit this week. I need one but I'm putting it off because in order to go suit shopping, I'd have to first bathe. And if I'm not going anywhere else, it's a waste of a bath. I want to coincide the bath with going to work or something.
I need shirts too. And socks. And t-shirts. And underpants. Everything is worn out. Actually, I can probably get a few more months, possibly years, out of the t-shirts and underpants but I don't have many good items. And all the t-shirts have deodorant stains that go from pretty bad to huge. It's not something that you can wear in an intimate setting.
Reddit recommended some suit place in town but looking at the website..."suits from £95"? I don't want a £95 suit. There's a bunch of tattooed, gay hipsters in these pictures too. I'm not sure that this is for me.
These are £50. This is crap.
Here's some more expensive stuff but it's three-piece suits. Who the hell is wearing three-piece suits? Only lawyers wear those, that I've ever seen. And that's because it's like part of the uniform. And you know somebody is a laywer because they're wearing this ridiculously old-fashioned suit.
You can't even sort by single breasted or double. Presumably, they don't have double-breasted suits. But that's what I like. The more breasts the better.
Yeah, they don't have any. Can you believe that? What a dive. Why was this place recommended?
Somebody else recommended Reiss. Yeah, this looks more like it. Prices that are slightly alarming. Oh right. Yeah, I've seen this place. Only one reasonably-priced, suitable suit, though. At least online. And this place seems to be a chain. There are three shops just in Glasgow. How can they support that?
In London, I just went to a small, independent shop, or maybe a small chain. This Reiss seems to have loads of locations across the world.
I'd like something uniquely Scottish. Or failing that, I'll go back to London and get something uniquely London.
This guy recommends Frasers. That's just another chain, I'm pretty sure. Yeah, I don't know. There's some suitably-priced stuff here but not much. Might check it out. They seem to sell jackets separate from trousers. This suggests that they have plenty of trousers. So it's not a case of having to buy two pairs right then and there or you miss out because they won't have the fabric in the future.
