Gin, destroyer of homes - Sally's Journal
Gin, destroyer of homes|
I went out of the door for a second to put an empty bottle of Gin in the bin, as part of my "make the house perfect so that when M comes home he realises my inner domestic goddess, falls in love with me and decides to marry my" plan.
The door closed behind me.
Sum total of items usefully available to me - engagement ring, t-shirt, underwear, jeans, shoes. Note the absense of socks, jumpers, wallet, or phone. I hadn't even brushed my hair!
So I wandered over to Whinside, to see if ilanin
could help me out, but he was out. Next to St Eds porters lodge, where I managed to scrounge (err, steal, really) half a poststick note that was lying around, and borrowed a pen from a nice girl. This enabled me to scrawl a hasty note telling M quite what a moron I was, which I stuck on the still immovably locked door. Being bank holiday, I assumed that Russels would be closed, so I went down to Queens', where I am enough of an old git that at least some of the porters recognise me, and signed out a computer room key. Which is where I am now, hanging around on IRC until Matthew gets home.
Grr. This was not the way today was supposed to go.
Oh dear. That sounds like something that would happen to me! :-)
And I have feeling that M will find the whole situation amusing, thus finding you charming and lovely and finding no choice but to ask you to marry him immediately - even as soon as this weekend!
See you SOON! :-D
i second that feeling :)
i'd offer succor, but the walk would probably tire you out.
Would you like to come out here until he gets back? We have warmth and children to play with and games and musical instruments and so on... I could nip into town and collect you, if you like?
(also jumpers, socks and telephones ;-)

It's OK, I'm curled up in the Queens' computer room, which has the interweb, and thus all my needs ;-)
Thanks for the offer though!
Well, of course, we have oodles of interweb too :-)
Feel free to come and hang out here. We have books and tea and food and DVDs. I am working and meepish, but would appreciate being able to give you a hug for a bit before getting on with things. Also, I could lend you a jumper.

It's OK. The Queens' computer room has the Interweb, which contains all that I need. It should only be a couple of hours anyway.
If you need some looking after, we can rescue you, feed you etc.

Thanks for the offer, but it'll only be a couple of hours. I'll just wait it out here doing light wedding organisation...
As with others I offer my home as a place of rest if you happen to feel like jumping on a train to York :-P
Which is where I am now, hanging around on IRC until Matthew gets home.
On the 1337 people IRC server which I can't get to :-(

That'd be the one, yes. That evil exclusive clique.

I'm in now, if that helps

I apologise for being out when I could have usefully been in, unfortunately I had an examples class. Next time, if you could try to lock yourself out in the afternoon, that would be much better.
This is where blokes have the advantage: I never leave the house not wearing trousers, and bloke-trousers always have pockets, and my keys are always in my pocket. When I change trousers, the keys make a quantum leap from one pocket to the next.
The other advantage is that my front door is deadlocked, so I need keys to get out first thing in the
afternoon morning. Having unlocked the door, I'd have to do something pretty peculiar in order to leave myself outside but the keys inside.
Still, you have my sympathy. I would give you offers of rescue, but it appears you are already well served in that department, and in any case content to bask in the comforting glow of a CRT. :-p
Could be worse. You could not have got as far as putting shoes on!
Hope you were let in safely (or will be, or something temporally appropriate).

At least I'm not the only one to end up in such foolish circumstances. The last time I locked myself out I was able to climb in through the open kitchen window, using my sleight frame and long legs to their full advantage.
see you soon
Hugs to lovely Sally. Yay, looking forward to this weekend! :-)
If you're still wasting time on LJ, Henry and I are curious as to whether you and M had a wedding list set up anywhere?
Sally m'dear, there can be more entries telling about what lovely Sally has been up to and things? Yesss. I'm sure you have done many things in May that are worthy of note.
Hugs hugs hugs to lovely Sally.

I have missed you. I was going to email you last night to remember you were alive, but instead I went to a pub and drank blackberry wine and did lots of OU marking and put my wedding dress in the post. I am easilly distracted like that.
I have half of a huuuuge LJ post about the wedding, but I thought no-one would be interested in it until it was finished. Actually, at the level of detail it's currently at, no-one but me will be interested in it at all ;-) I've reached the really exciting bit where we go to Tescos and buy a toothbrush.
Go on then, you can now have a sneak preview at a very long, dull, half written entry about the wedding
Anyway, you don't write nearly
enough LJ yourself, so you can't tell me off :-)
I have missed you too. You are very nice. :-) Aaah.
