This is my…QotD (10/03/13)

10 Mar

“When was the last time you tried something new?”

First point, I like routine.
That small part of me that’s Autistic/OCD whatever, it likes to have meals at a set time, I like the same sort of foods and it take a lot for me to try a new flavour of anything (especially when it’s spicy).

However,  the recent stays in hospital have been quite new to me, but this obviously wasn’t something that was exactly on my bucket list. Also, will get quite tedious if the other things that are on my health list go belly up, it’ll get quite boring and repetitive.

But the main thing that’s new in my life is my gorgeous little boy.

Being a mum is the most amazing exciting thing I have ever done, no feeling like it on earth.

Every day is something new, first smile, first gurgly words, first tastes of food and in the future, first proper words, first steps, no two days are ever going to be the same.
Obviously, some days are going to be full of worry, when he’s ill, when he’s hurt. Some days will be good scary, first day of school, first girlfriend (or boyfriend if some of my friends get their way!) but at the end of the day…
Isn’t that what new adventures should be all about?

Well, Lookie here

As I often do when I can’t sleep, I’ve moved things around again.

Basically I was fed up with Vox for a while as all they threw at me were spam comments, and even after being on there for 2 years I never made anymore neibours, and I don’t think anyone outside of the twitter readers actually looked at it BECAUSE of Vox. Continue reading

So, erm, I’ve started watching Wrestling again *ducks bottles and knives being thrown*

But have no fear, to save all of you from hearing me rant about a show that very few people in England still watch, I’ve moved my blog set to a corner of the WWE universe. Continue reading

Missing in Action

21 Feb

Wow, nothing posted since last year.
I think this has something to do with the invention and acquisition of an Xbox 360. I've really taken to collecting achievement points like the whore that I am.
I'm really into first person shooty ones like Gears Of War and Call Of Duty. Also, finally got to play Resi 5 after playing the others on PS1 (Yes, I am that old). Basically, if it's 18 rated full of blood and violence, much like my life, I'm a happy bunny. When I feel rich, I'd like to get Guitar Hero, I'm sure there is a ton and a half on achivements I could get on there. Might even get my brother to play. Pity I can't get him to buy it.
The best ones have been the Tony Hawks games I already had on PS2, breezed through them in about 10 seconds flat with one hand tied behind my brothers back.
Anyway.
Apart from that, I have a new job!
Seeing as I no longer work at The Marina Theatre (don't ask) and the Seagull Theatre doesn't pay, and there's a new techy there who seems happy to take over, so I thought I'd take matters into my own hands and become a teacher.
On top of this, I've joined forces (Think transformers) with Purple Acadamy of Performing Arts, and they are advertising me as a private vocal coach on their posters. 2 pupils already signed in for Monday evening, so I'm getting there!

So. I have got up to a few things over the past month, I'll have to go back and fill in the blanks when my computer decides to run for more than 5 seconds.

Things I know

5 Nov
  • I've started and already given up on Nanowrimo, as work has, not so much prevented me from being at my computer, so much as prevented my brain from working. Pity, as it was good novel with lots of deaths. Would have been fun to see what my brain farted out over 30 days.
  • Popcorn is a little bit addictive.
  • 3D week? I'm never gonna remember that Channel 4, and I'll be pissed if I turn on the Simpsons and find I can't see a damn thing thats going on, even if I have seen it 100 times before.
  • I've added a forum to my website: Jon Forum
  • To that note, Jon was fan-fucking-tastic on NMTB last week.
  • Why can't I get over this crappy crush. It really is like an illness, it's getting to the point I can't work without thinking silly things. Ugh. Damn female emotions.
  • Already purchased 2 Christmas presents, and planned the rest of them. How organised it that!
  • Macbeth is going swimmingly, thanks for asking. I've managed to cobble together a rough lighting plan, no doubt though a few people will have their own ideas which they can shove up their own arses. Filming on Monday was probably some of the best ear splitting fun I've had in a long time, and I can now add bullet making to my CV.
  • I've written up birthday weekend blog on paper. Who knows, I might actually type it up some point. Right after I do last years Latitude and last years Edinburgh. Which are also on bits of paper hidden in a nice little folder.

So yeah, thats life.
But thats what a lot of people say.

What frivolity!

23 Feb

Just had a wonderful conversation on twitter with Liza, Sarah and Tiernan Douieb (wonderful comic, you should find a gig local to you and book tickets now!). It amused me so much I thought I'd transcribe it here for posterity:

And much later:

So if you're not on Twitter, you really are missing out on all the fun!

Don’t Speak Too Soon

12 Jan

Tonight, I am on the Asda special of Cola and white Russian anti-freeze, I'm not getting drunk, so much as losing my sight.
Also, I shouldn't have talked up not going on the forum anymore, as I appear to have totally broken it, so no one can get onto it. Ooops.

In case I don't get back on here before Friday, it's Tim time !

And The Award For The Most Paranoid Person Goes To…

14 Apr

OH my gosh, how mental is (The Artist Formally Known As) Prince
Now, let me clear something up, I love his music, When Doves Cry is possibly one of my favourite tracks ever, and the guy has an immense stage presence and can put on a show that is second to none.
But.
What sort of man sues his own fans?
I can understand him not wanting people to copy his music
I can just about understand
I can barley understand him not wanting his lyrics posted in whole on websites
I cannot even begin to fathom what went through his mind, when he found a site that was all about him, everything that they spoke about was him, their whole worlds revolve around him, and his first thought was "Sue them"
Threes 3 main sites, prince.org, princefams and housequake and they have all been sent "DMCA takedown notices" and at least two "Cease and Desist" letters from attorneys representing Prince. If they take down the things that the orders suggest then they basically won't have a site left.
I suppose I should put up "The Facts" or I shall be next in line for an arse kicking.

Direct from prince.org:
" We have not been sued (yet). We have been served "cease and desist" letters which threaten that we MAY be sued. These C&Ds also ask for monetary damages, and even threaten criminal prosecution.
prince.org has never engaged in bootlegging of his music. We won't link to any eBay sales of bootlegs. We don't link to YouTube videos of his music. We don't post his lyrics in full. We always give credit, including copyright, on every image we post when the information is available.
If Prince himself was not involved in the cease-and-desist letters we received, someone new must be running Paisley Park Enterprises, or the lawyers are misrepresenting themselves. According to records as recent as 2005, Prince is "the sole owner of" Paisley Park Enterprises, which is one of the three entities listed as clients being represented in the C&D letters.
"prince.org" is not capitalized. It's "prince.org" NOT "Prince.org"."


So in my mind at least, they don't have a case, I can't see what they've done wrong other than worshiping someone. The guy doesn't deserve any fans.

The other thing I found was long long ago, Ed Byrne did a set at a Fullmooners night where he dressed up as Prince and sung bits from his songs in-between telling Ed shaped jokes, and the clip somehow ended up on youtube. Uhoh. Wrong move.
After reading all of this I just decided to see if this clip was still around, and sure enough anywhere that linked to it, and the page in youtube have all been taken down and banished to the dark recesses of the internet, including Ed's Myspace page. Mental, Ed bought a guitar used by Prince for £12000 and is a huge fan, yet he gets a severe telling off for getting drunk one night on stage.

The second most paranoid person, just in case you were wondering, is Mariah Carey, who seems to insist on having choirs of lovely children singing with her, but god forbid any of them, try to get in front of her….she probably has them taken out and shot.

I'm now counting how long it takes to have a order of some form take out over a simple blog.
If he does, I have Amnesty International on my side…do your worst !

What Is The World Coming To?

11 Apr

I checked my e-mails this morning to receive a lovely letter in my inbox:

Dear In Christ,
I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ our Lord, I am mrs Linda
Adams  from  Australia . I am married to Mr Alex  Adams who worked with
Australia embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year
2000.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a
brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both
born again Christians.
Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my
matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my late husband was
alive he deposited the sum of US$19 million dollars in a Bank here in
Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire.
Presently, this money is still in bank.Recently, my Doctor told me that I
would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem.
The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my
condition I decided to donate this fund to a charity organization that will
utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.
I want an organization that will use this fund for orphanages, schools,
churches and widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that
the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand
that "Blessed is the hand that giveth". I took this decision because I don't
have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not
Christians and I don't want my husband's efforts to be used by
unbelievers.
I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way.
This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know
where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.
Exodus 14 VS 14 says that "the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my
peace". I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of
my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives around me
always. I don't want them to know about this development. With God all
things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the
contact of the Bank here in  Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire.
I will also issue you an authority  letter that will prove you the present
beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me
because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a
worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in
spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay
in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church/organisation for
this same purpose. Please promise me that you will act accordingly as I
Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply.
Remain blessed in the Lord Take care,

In Christ's Holy Love
Yours Sister in Christ
Mrs Linda Adams

Now, I know all about these Internet scams, and usually I'd just let them pass me by, but this one really REALLY got on my nerves.
1. He/She/it, is taking the Lords name in vain, in a ridiculous way, even born again Christians aren't that annoying. The copious amounts of religious references are designed specifically for the totally mental Americans that take the bible literally, and have no backbone. Makes me wonder how much money these scamy people can actually get from anyone outside of America.
2. Trivialising terminal illnesses. He/She/It may as well have gone "Oh dear, I appear to have cancer, I'm sure I can sleep it off"
3. Breaking family ties. Does the Bible not say "honour thy mother and thy Father"? So why does He/She/It say she wants nothing to do with there family just because they aren't as religious as they are?
4. He/She/It is geographically retarded. I know nothing about geography, but I do know the difference between Australia and this "
Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire" Which after closer inspection, is not only not in Australia, but not even in the same continent, some random place in Africa.
5. The spelling and grammar! If I was trying to convince someone that English was my first language, I would at least run it through a spell check before mailing it to everyone in the western world
So in conclusion, I don't actually believe that there are any 3rd world countries, because they all seem to have computers which they are using to scam people out of money. Badly.
