OMFG

I can't actually believe this. I found out a few nights ago that one of my favourite people in the whole world is moving to Glasgow on Thursday. My friend Lipi (who I knew from when I lived in Manchester) has been offered a place on a Masters programme in Glasgow and only found out about it last week. She emailed me in a panic asking for a sofa to crash on until she can get a flat sorted out. Fortunately, I unofficially live with Bob at the moment, so my bedroom is going unused and I've offered it to Lipi on a temporary basis, following my flatmate's approval. I am expecting them to get along fine but if there should be any issues, we can always shuffle her between flats until she finds a place of her own, and if the worst comes to the worst, Bob's sofa is mega comfortable.

This means I have three days to clear a Lipi-shaped hole in my bedroom, move out a bit more of my things and get the place into a vaguely habitable state (as it's mainly been used as a dumping ground for the last few months. I made an event page on Facebook called 'Help Lipi Make Friends in Glasgow', which horribly embarrassed her but I wasn't able to sleep last night for worrying that she'll be lonely when she gets here. I figure a pub venture is in order a few days after she arrives so that she can be introduced to some nice alternative people.

I'M SO EXCITED I MIGHT DIE.

Wheeeeee! Yesterday was my last day of work until the 29th. The last hour or two dragged in sooooo slowly, especially since Ashley (with all the inane questions) was in charge for the afternoon/evening. I'm hating her a bit less than I did originally - we had a conversation about finding work/the future yesterday that convinced me she's not entirely vapid, so that's a step forward.

I also managed to get along fairly well with the Buchannan Galleries store assistant manager, Jody, who I normally feel I clash with. She's into electro music so I'm hoping to use that to bond with her. It was her last day before her holiday as well, so she was in a good mood, and I think the key to getting along with her is finding her on a good day.

I'm generally feeling a bit more comfortable in the Galleries store as time goes on. It's still not my favourite store and I'd always choose to be in one of the others if I had the choice, but I'm getting by without wanting to walk out! Fortunately, the week I get back from my holiday, I'm mostly in the Byres Road store, and I like being there because it feels like home, as it's just down the road from my University, where I've been attending/lived near for the last eight years. I also REALLY get on with the store manager, because she reminds me of myself. She, like me, dropped out of uni after second year, then went back to it later, and therefore graduated at the age of 25, and she dreams of taking a Masters but can't afford it. Additionally, she's an artist and I tend to get on better with creatively minded individuals.

Anyway, that's enough crap about work! [profile] jademcivor lent me her books from the MLitt course last year, so I can get a headstart on my reading, which I'll need because I work so much.

This afternoon, I'm going into town to meet Bob (he's got a half day off) and we're getting some lunch then getting the bus through to Edinburgh. We'll be staying in Bob's parents house (cat-sitting for them) while enjoying the Fringe. We have tickets booked to three shows over the weekend, and we're planning on going to the Banshee Labyrinth on Saturday night. I also have a shoot planned with Tanya (RockstarVanity) for the Saturday afternoon for Zivity. Bob's parents will be coming back on either Saturday night or Sunday, which I'm a little nervous about because I don't think I'm a very parent-friendly girlfriend, but I'm sure it will be fine. We're coming home on the Sunday and then we have the whole week to ourselves!

Anyway, I must cut this entry short because I need to go shower and check I've got everything ready to go. See you all in a few days!
