I feel weak and hungover today despite only having three beers and a vodka mix yesterday.

EU seems very impressed with the UK at the minute.... Or not
Q: Can you tell us more about what you want Britain to say about its financial obligations?

Barnier says this is very important.

He says EU leaders agreed on a seven-year budget. David Cameron signed it when he was prime minister. He says those commitments still apply.

There are thousands of people, stakeholders, companies, citizens and laboratories who have set up projects on the basis of the promises made.

There is a moral problem here. You cannot have 27 countries paying for commitments made by 28.

He says he has been “very disappointed” by what the UK has been saying about this.

It seems to be backtracking on its commitments, he says.
Also tore the UK apart for their stance on the NI/RoI border issues.
it's just getting worse and worse. have a feeling that there will be enough pressure for some kind of second referendum, but how do you explain all elements of the final deal to all of the UK? even if it's absolutely clear that the UK will be worse off, there'll still be such a strong push for it from a core element that the details won't matter

If it wasn't so serious it would be hilarious. EU was also scathing about the border issue here. Basically saying things have to stay as they are for Ireland and there would be no ignoring the rules of the custom union and freedom of movement.

Also at the weekend I lifted €150 and it cost me £151.12 which is the first I ever paid more than 1 to 1

Did many people automatically get loyalty codes for EP. I've had to apply for mine. Curious if they only automatically went out to people who went this year

So essentially the people that voted Leave are getting fuck all of what they asked for because the movement of people won't change and the only change is that we'll all be considerably poorer.

Fucking excellent.

having lost 4 tickets to the Friday Dublin LCD Soundsystem show when ticketmaster asked me to verify my visa and the graphic didn't load, was absolutely devastated. none of my other 3 friends had any joy

as of today, one of those mates was offered two standing tickets for the Wednesday show, face value. Fucking thrilled. And also makes listening to the new album less bittersweet.

I've only ever seen LCD at EP last year. And obviously Olympia is small as shit. But do they put on much of a light show? Been wanting to get a pair of Kaleidoscope glasses for a while having had them at a festival this summer, just looking for an excuse

Well, that escalated. Lower abdomen cramps every 10-20mins morning, noon, and night.
Women, i feel your pain, but i think i'd swap the hormone imbalance part for the ability to retain food and water.

It'd make you wonder how many people in the real world think these things but only express their true feelings when hiding behind an anonymous account.

some dont hide it. I've stopped talking to an old friend because his twitter is absolutely horrible. Massive trump fan which initially which was good for discussion because you could see how deluded and suckered in by Trump he was. Defended absolutely everything during the election. It was a slow decent into outright racism once Trump got elected though. It emboldened him. Constantly retweeting Breitbart and Zerohedge links. He spends most of his time tweeting about muslims, but in his mind can separate that one of his friend's gf is muslim and he's not talking about her.

Called him out on it many times, as did some of our other friends. One of the other lads called him a racist and he started crying and playing the victim. I just cut off all contact in the end. Sent him a message a while back in a considered manner, told him why I stopped talking to him. Got nothing but hate and vitriol back so happy with my decision in the end. One of the lads was telling me yesterday that his tweets now include attacks on LGBT and black people regularly. Trump can do no wrong and we're all mainstream media sheep. I just don't understand how a man in his mid 30s could be turned by this, unless it was always there under the surface.

But he's definitely not a racist

There's a live band that play in The Front Door on dame street every Saturday and Sunday after 9 that are the best live cover band I've seen in the city. Couldn't recommend them enough. Been in to watch them 4 or 5 times in the last few months now

There's an Irish "vlogger" I keep seeing too who's mad for all that. Anti-feminist, anti-SJW (whatever that means), anti "fake news", obsessed with censorship and the odd foray into thinly veiled racism. Wanks to PrisonPlanet.

Absolute tosser.
