Sunday: Steak, budgeting and a lack of hot water.

Posted in General with tags , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2017 by MISANTHROPIST

As you’re no doubt aware if you’ve been reading this blog longer than 10 minutes, I dislike Sundays. For me they’re little more than a waiting room for the transit between the weekend and work. Today I’m not doing much, as is usual for a Sunday. 

My only real task today is cooking steak, a labour of love. I’m having a steak and cheese baguette for dinner. Other than that I have trousers, shirts, ties etc to launder and iron. I’ve sat down and budgeted, I should be left with a nice figure at the end of the month even after I’ve purchased everything I need.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if I keep hitting such figures I’m going to require an accountant. Now I can’t wait until my actual paydays. It’s nice knowing where all my money is going and what will be left but I have yet to receive it. It’s the final week before payday and I’m just waiting.

Other than that I’m cleaning my space. I gave in and purchased a fan which I’m not sure was a great investment because of the temperamental nature of English weather. Last night it felt like money well spent. The worst part of today is the fact I don’t have hot water.

It being summer you wouldn’t think that a problem but the cold is ice cold, colder than my drinking water. Almost impossible to shower under without dancing and making a series of noises to the amusement of everyone else here. Boil the kettle and towel wash it is…

My problem after all this is that there is very little to do here and even less company. Unfortunately I can’t have anyone over right now or I’d invite my favourite woman here for steak, wine and a good time.

I should start preparing the steak.

It’s Sunday again.

100
Sundays for me mean one thing and one thing only, boredom. I don’t have anything to do around the house or outside the house. Gaming has kinda been ruined for me, I can’t sit and play games. I’d put my guitar on but I can’t even be bothered with that. Last night was the beginning of an off day for me, as if Sunday couldn’t get any worse. I got to thinking last night which is something I should have probably avoided. It looks like I’ll be writing today and by writing I don’t mean posting a spiderman meme with a relevant title.

I woke up, put on coffee, put some music on and had a cigarette. That is literally all I’ve done today. The only friend I can be bothered to see is out-of-town so I’m not out today. Yesterday I was considering being more social but if it means I have to sit in my friend’s house and watch him play FIFA 14 for hours I’ll pass. Same goes for Call of Duty. The way I saw it I can go out and find new friends or just go see old ones. This is all irrelevant seeing as my priority should really be looking for work. I’m not sure if I wrote that for you or for me.

All dressed up and nowhere to go.

And I was going to be social tonight… I arranged to see my friend today after he has been with his pregnant fiancee for a few days. It’s no biggie or anything, all we were going to do was play GTA V online and maybe some Battlefield 4 too, might have a few beers. Just normal guy shit. Life has moved fast for both of us, him more than me of course but I’ve had my own adventures. I guess it kinda takes us back to ’05 when we’d do it every weekend. It’s happening a little more often because he’s going to be a father, funny how life does that. He is relatively young, mid twenties to be more exact. Soon it’ll be a rarity. At the moment my life is going absolutely nowhere but I’m turning it toward some direction by the new year, hopefully.

I got clean and everything, Sundays are always a lazy day. No exceptions. On the seventh day I rested…
I like to be clean generally but it definitely gives a sense of routine when you’re stuck in limbo. Sunday is my day off regardless. I do not attend any church and therefore have nothing to do on a Sunday. The only time I’ve ever actually enjoyed Sunday was in good old ‘Murica because things were still open and after church there was food and book shopping. Life was good. I have to admit that I miss Sunday nights with my woman and her family. That said the day of Thanksgiving is destined to suck because I loved that holiday.

Well we’ve re-arranged for another day anyway so it isn’t that bad. I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go. I can play fallout but I want to sleep tonight. Today I tried to play GTA V offline and ended up using the money to buy LS customs, driving into a bar and shooting some people, driving off and eventually getting arrested for the first time ever because a cop caught me off my guard. I just couldn’t really be bothered with it. Now I was stupid enough to get an Xbox 360 instead of a PS3 and due to the fact I’m not on Xbox live that garage glitch is kinda game breaking in terms of completely fucking up the car customization and storing your favorites. This is kinda off-topic but alas it pisses me off immensely.

Things are mediocre at best.
I wonder who’s gonna get killed this Black-Friday. I know that’s in bad taste but I really don’t get why or how you kill someone accidentally or maliciously over a fucking bargain.

This sunday…

It’s pretty much a usual Sunday which means it is somewhere in between boring and tedious with a distinct lack of anything going on, most shops are closed at this hour too so be prepared for a quest if you want/need anything. There is something about this Sunday, maybe it’s because I’m not at work, maybe the lack of people around me or maybe it’s that I finally get a decent chunk of my own time. Probably all three…

This wasn’t a bad Sunday after all.

I’m not a religious man in any sense of the word, so I have nowhere to be on a Sunday. Sundays for me involve having no money, my friends staying indoors due to lack of money, watching TV and generally being bored. The best a Sunday gets for me is spending the day with my woman, that makes me happy. Occassionally I will go to church with her family out of respect but other than spending the day with her and her family my Sundays are, for lack of a better word, crap. Today wasn’t a bad one, no money and no friends around as usual. I’ve talked to my woman and got a lot of posts written. Power blogging f**k yeah!

Other than that I’ve cooked a great meal, had lengthy conversations with my mother. I shared some olympic related jokes to ease my disdain for the entire event. I’m spending the evening with my partner and my friend is possibly appearing later on. He’s a strange one, always comes after 10pm but that’s just him. Today was the best Sunday I’ve had in a while and I just wanted to make a note of that.

Sunday doesn’t have to suck after all,

So it’s Sunday again, my least favourite day of the week, I’ve been down to the store and brought myself an energy drink some ingredients for dinner and some cigarettes because on a day like sunday you must have cigarettes. I’m making a Hungarian-American fusion dish out of two recipes taught to me by my best friend and woman respectively. God, I sound like a douche even saying the word ‘Fusion’ in a food related sentence. I always use fresh ingredients because frozen and tinned food tastes like crap. Anyway on to the point of this post: As a fledgling asshole/misanthrope I had many adventures which I will chronicle here as I recall them. It’ll act as a bit of filler and maybe even give you a few laughs or you’ll be offended in which case I don’t care.

Please bear in mind that these posts will be in no particular order chronological or otherwise. As a teenager I decided one winter day that I would ware a Che Guevara t-shirt into school, my history teacher was an educated man and one of the best teachers I ever had, I think I was just looking for an argument that day. He sees the t-shirt half way through our one hour periods and gets pretty mad while educating me on how Che Guevara was a nasty man, bayonetting pregnant women and murdering various people. I thought murder was kinda a main facet of revolution?

I have no real political alignment unless the far right are seeking power, then I feel it my duty to vote against them as a misanthrope and a human being. What could be worse than the far right coming into power, its pretty funny I say that because as a blonde haired, blue-eyed white guy I stand to gain the most. As he carried on in his rant, getting pretty fired up and red in the face he tells me to go home and change my shirt ending his outburst with ‘Would you ware a shirt with Adolf Hitler on it?’

Sure enough I was wearing a shirt with Hitler on it, the shirt in itself was anti-Nazi and Hitler but you’d have to read it to see that. It read Hitler’s European Tour listing various countries such as Britain and Russia as cancelled. He was in no mood to read such a shirt and sent me out of class. With a smile on my face and a spring in my step I left class, went home and explained to my mother who said he should have read the shirt and let me stay home for the day. Now I don’t remember entirely but I could have planned that seeing how long and boring the day was set to be.

This is really nothing compare to some of the things I did in school and got away with frequently. I was an extremely good student, always respectful towards my teachers because after all they give up their time for a meagre wage in order to teach me about the world around me, educating me for my descent into the fuckery that is working life. It goes to show that if you’re an excellent worker and well liked you can get away with anything. I bent the rules multiple times, this is something I plan to carry into my working life.
