How’s the job search going?
Results are in. Thankfully wasn’t too much of an embarrassing mess at the party on Friday. It seems the worst thing I did was fall asleep for two hours on the sofa. Currently thanking all the non existent deities.
Just watched a really interesting documentary on BBC Four about the history of the diner, looking at its use in pop culture. Should probably be asleep though. Work tomorrow. Got the fear to even go in after getting far too drunk on Friday at my work’s night out. Hopefully didn’t insult anyone or do anything too humiliating. Fingers crossed.
Haven’t been on tumblr much lately. Wish I could say I’ve been busy doing exiting, interesting things, going on adventures etc, but that’s just not really the case. Went to Paris a couple of weekends ago though. It was fantastic. This photo is the view from our hotel room in Montmartre.
A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting - part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie.
When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers … and couldn’t resist doing this!
I SCREAMED OH MY GOD
