I once guilt-tripped a former employer into donating £250 to the DEC appeal for humanitarian aid to Yemen.

'High loading capacity and multifunctional usage.'

Nothing to be sorry about. Maybe we're into BDSM.

The amount of effort I put into procrastination. It'd probably be only half the work to actually do all the shit I have to do, but being able to shrug at all the things that I fuck up because "Meh, I could've succeeded if I hadn't rushed it at the last minute" is a watertight coping mechanism against my towering incompetence.

Inventing folding the cardboard of a supermarket pizza box back on itself to make a rudimentary disposable plate.

I stayed too long in a shit job where it got to the point I was putting more effort into hiding my continual skiving than actually just doing the bare minimum and slacking off. When I realised it I knew I had to move on, but I still wonder how long I could've really kept it up.

I actively enjoy listening to people talk about the dream they just had.

Great. I dreamed last night (It's 6:40am GMT, 27th Jun) that I was suspended on a bungee cord, running a Nail Bar. I would plummet down and could only work on my clients' nails for a moment, at the lowest part of my descent before the rope hauled me back up again (the rope didn't lose any energy as it went through its cycle, so I'd just boing-boing up and down till the job was done).
Call me if you want to hear more.

I regularly wonder if I deserve more credit for juggling all the various projects I'm working on, but I then put myself down for it and tell myself to stop being an egomaniacal cunt and do some fusking werk.

My "People in this country have had enough of expats" joke that I made on Facebook 4 years ago, when Brexit had just been voted for, people were mooting whether this meant our expats would have to come home, and Gove had recently opined that "People in this country have had enough of experts."
