Reading, Rain and Radiohead  
So Reading festival was fun.. full of 17 year old indie scensters, but bah was a festival so i didnt care! I am not really even into the music scene that Reading is morphing into i mean comon The Arctic Monkeys?? A few blokes with bad hair that can barely pull a note between them if not in the studio.. but we did see a few bands over the weekend that were good. Placebo <3.. fantastic!, Deftones were great too.. Kings of Leon worth it for bouncing about to.. and Radiohead... they are once again rocking my little world now! The show was fantastic and they played everything i wanted bar Fake Plastic Trees.. they played Weird Fishes off In Rainbows which is one of my favourite songs so that was all good... Mr loved it being Thom Yorke's personal penis worshipper :) All good!
Reading is an institution for us these days, been for about 6 years now, but i am sad it is moving away from the heavier lineups it used to have, to the indie shite now being spewed out all over the place! Basically find 4 guys, give them a guitar, chuck them a 2 album deal.. when thats over throw them away and grab the next notalent guys in jeans too tight for them. Bah

Jobcentre finally sorted out my jobseekers.. and yes i get.. wait for it.. £18.22 a week!! WTF! I phoned them and apparently i have other income coming in.. actually mate no i dont.. i had my final pay of £1081 which has gone on 2 months rent (so we keep this bloody roof).. so now i have just over £300 including my overdraft.. Nicky shall once more be waging some beaurocratic war on Monday morning.. bloody government agency people!

Can I come with you and go kick some Job Centre ass?

I went to my JSA thing last Tuesday and they told me it was cancelled, "because I couldn't be bothered to turn up two weeks before". WTF I was on holiday, and I told you that the time BEFORE I was gonna leave. I pulled over the guy who interviewed me and all he could do was stutter and blubber, "oh have I made a mistake? LULZ11!"


So despite telling them THREE TIMES I was going on holiday, the stupid bloke didn't amend my file, so now I have to go through all the schpiel again. Couldn't have come at a worse week either, I have bills too! *flail*

You would have better chance talking to retarded monkeys i reacon than the clusterfuck of an operation they have going at the moment..

Feel like saying 'employ me' half the time, at least it would get done right!

Exactly. I consider myself to be perfectly competent, yet these n00bs are still in work and I'm sat here pulling my hair out. ;_;

I had to fill in a holiday form when I went festival-ing, and go into the JC to "declare myself back and looking for work" the day after I got back.
Failz for you & fails at the folk at your JC!! v_v

See, there was no way I would have known that unless they had told me. It doesn't even say you have to fill in a form, just that if you go abroad then it'll be cancelled, ahahaha. I swear the guy must have done it on purpose, then!

See i was late for my 9am signing yesterday due to not actually waking up which is a twatish error anyway.. you are supposed to fill in a form about it.. but they just let me in anyway..

To be fair i am thankful they did, but really if they are not following protocol all the time all the actual scummy bastards dont have to try :/.. i was prepared for a bollocking and i should have got one really
