Please sign it if you can!

OK, my eye is fucked. Sorry, but it is. Firstly (and this a month or two back), I get a "fatty deposit" (Pingueculae) on the conjunctiva (just had to look that up), which is the outer layer covering the eye. These are basically like little fatty spots, but not the pus-filled kind (now, wouldn't that be nice, readers!). So, I'm given "Viscotears" which are a gel/fake tear stuff that you put in your eye to help lube it up. Yup. Fortunately, the pingueculae had almost cleared up and were no bother any more, but last night and tonight my eye is all bloodshot, and it feels like I have an eyelash sticking into it. Have tried the "tears", but they haven't helped much so far. It's OK at the moment, but hopefully it will clear up with a good mornings sleep.

Send good thoughts to my eye please!
This is so majorly majorly sad. Hover over each picture for the commentary.

Work again, but I've been really good and got nearly all my work out of the way straight away, so there's not so much to do when my brain can't function! The asbestos tent has gone, but they're still working on it...

Not much to report other than I made cookies :) Oh, and I think we may be moving to America... where's nice, people??
OK, I have stumbled onto a very weird site. It's called Mind Control Forum, and it is written by people who seriously believe that they have implants, and are in some way controlled by the government etc. making their lives a misery. To be honest, it sounds many major cases of paranoid schizophrenia, but you should go read it for yourself. I sincerely hope these people get help one day.
Hello again.

I'm back at stinky old work, and I am so tired. I have some work I should do, but that will be it. I can't really even summon up the energy to do that. It is 2.17am, and I can (hopefully) go home at 7am or so. That is a long time away. Both the night staff were sound asleep when I checked, and I really should wake them up because they could get fired for sleeping on the job if one of the bosses actually came in and caught them at it. I am jealous cos I want to be asleep. Right now. But I can't. Poo.

On a lighter note, try to fool the computer! It's actually pretty accurate!

Would you be worried if you rolled up to work, only to find a big white tent inside, with the following sign on it??

Danger Asbestos!

No access for unauthorised persons

Respiratory equipment must be worn

Safety equipment must be worn
I've found some new sites that are definitely worth looking at, and gave me a good old belly laugh! You need to really check out all the pranks at cockeyed.com. Also, take a look at fark.com, cos that's a good laugh too! I've added them to the side bar for easy viewing pleasure :) enjoy!
I'm testing out the new mail service from Google, so please do mail me and give it a whirl! silly rabbit

It's a perfect evening for a drink or 3 in pub garden, but guess where I am! Working as usual... The sky is blue, it's warm, and the sun is just starting to set, so I can just imagine sitting by a river somewhere with a cold pint of cidar, and watching the world go by. Oh, that would be nice.

Decided to phone in sick for one of my shifts so I could actually go to the dentist, otherwise I don't think I would have ever gone. Ended up with, surprise surprise, amoxycillin for 5 days. Lump is in retreat! Dentist said that if it flares up again within the next year, the tooth will have to be taken out! Ouch.

Still waiting for my sofa.

Does anyone want to send me some money? That would be nice.

Saturday, April 17, 2004

Found it! Have also remembered I have to order a sofa...
Where has my publish button gone?
Check out this new blog I found!
Hi! Back again, planning a crazy 'ole night here at work. I still have toothache, and I really couldn't get myself in gear this afternoon when I woke up. The dental surgery I can attend at the local hospital only opens until 3.30, and I got up at 2 because of being awake all night, and then didn't really want to rush. I think they might be open on a saturday, but I doubt I will make it tomorrow either!

Does anyone know of any sites that offer things to use within blog templates? Not sure where to look, and I'm sure some of you more technically minded people could point me in the right direction...

I have just watched a movie called Office Space. It was shit. Don't watch it.

Friday, April 16, 2004

I have tooth ache. More precisely, I have gum ache, all around my bottom left wisdom tooth. Here in the UK, we have the NHS, which means as long as you pay your national insurance through your wages, you get free health care (or pretty reduced, anyway). Unfortunately, there is a distinct lack of dentist activity in this area, and you couldn't get on the books of one even if you bribed him (or her) with a bar of chocolate, or something. I looked up all the local dentists on the net, and they all say, bar one, that they are not taking on new NHS patients. In red letters.

Fortunately, I can drop into the big hospital round the corner and they will treat me, but not register me. That will do me fine, thank you! Just need some antibiotics, and I'll be on my merry way. No fillings or extractions for me, thank you.

Also, I really really really want to go home right now. I have this insane feeling that I am missing Finton like crazy, and I just want to hold him. Stupid movie, making me want to cry.
Hey, it's compliment time! For me, anyway...

Was told that the 2 nightstaff here think the other managers should be more like me - laid back and not so stressed! Cheered me up :)

Have just finished watching Love Actually, and it's a lovely film. Very well written, and almost made me cry at some points too, so it must be good!

Thursday, April 15, 2004

"Borrowed" this from taryn who, also, stole it from someone else! Well, I like these sort of things, sorry!!


1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4, write down what it says:
OK, there is absolutely nothing on page 18....!

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?
Printer. This question doesn't actually make sense - stretch my arm out as far as I can, then what can I touch first?? Hmmm...

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?
The Box music channel

4. WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what time it is:
11.40pm

5. Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?
11.49pm

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
I think I can hear a slight roaring from the crappy heating system here. Otherwise, not a peep.

7. When did you last step outside? what were you doing?
I "stepped outside" a)leaving my house to go to my car, and b)leaving my car to get inside work. Yey.

8. Before you came to this website, what did you look at?
Well, I was looking at my own blogsite, and following all my links to check up on everyone, kinda like a spy :)

9. What are you wearing?
Black/greying jeans with extremely frayed hems, longsleeve blue top with St George flag on the front and a red dragon on the back (produced a major England football game. No idea which!), and trainers.

10. Did you dream last night?
Not sure. I keep having those dreams that sort of melt away as you try to remember them recently.

11. When did you last laugh?
When I was talking to the night staff here, about 20 mins ago.

12. What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Old yellow paint. Notice boards. Lots of paper. Thats about it.

13. Seen anything weird lately?
An unusual amount of roadkill badgers.

14. What is the last film you saw?
Not sure... I watch odd old films at night when I'm working here. Going to watch Love Actually in about 10 minutes, though!

15. Would you ever consider living abroad?
Yes, if I could get the courage up. Would like to live somewhere that isn't associated with greyness, or rain.

Work work work work work.

How can it be so boring? Do you eve get to that stage where there is so little to do that you have lost all motivation to go and find something to do? I am like that today, folks.

It's Easter Sunday, and the closest I have gotten to a ny semblage of a Church service is watching something weird on the God channel, and eating half an easter egg. Someone should invent an internet church. That would be cool. You could all conveen at a set time with web cams, or something, and conduct some sort of service over the net. Anyway...

I am currently scoffing lemon mirangue pie, which is part of the leftovers from the sunday dinner made at work. It's pretty good, but a little gooey, and I know that Finton would dispise it, but he is a head chef now, you know.... :) That is so great saying that. I did think that we are pretty lucky the other day. I know we have managed our money badly, but we have both made our way up our career ladders, and we're both still young. Hopefully will mean that we can be our own bosses one day, and make a killing :)

Anyway, enough on that. More pie.

That last point in the previous post is actually something that occured to me whilst writing it, but is not one that I've thought about properly before: the fact that I love my parents dearly, but I feel so uncomfortable hugging/kissing them, and I can't say I love them to their faces. I have no idea why this has come about, and it's a strange thing really. I don't know what else to say on that...
Saw this on _herself_'s site. Can't comment there, so I hope she takes it as a compliment that I want to use it!

Found another blog of note! Added to the sidebar, as usual. I'm at work, but to break the monotony, I'm doing a dayshift! Have managed so far to have a wheelchair race, to be given a wedgie, and lock a client out of the building. It's so much fun when your a manager!

The minibus broke down, so I called out the engineer. He was a bit of a paradox, actually - ginger, but cute! Couldn't figure that one out... lol

Everyone must come back here and tell me how many eggs they have eaten on easter sunday. I want to hear details people, details! And don't forget to think of Jesus while you are stuffing your faces with chocolate.

I have a new way of wasting time on my nights - reading lots of blogs! I have put lots and lots in the sidebar :)

Another way to waste time is to watch Disney movies. Sorry, I'm getting all "Americanised". Is that a word? What I should have said was "Disney films", or I will confuse myself. Note to self: when writing colour, never foget the U.

Anway, back to Disney FILMS. I watched Dinosaur tonight, and it was pretty cool. There I go again. I liked it, anyway! Almost made me cry, so thats good. It's a sign of a good film if it almost and/or makes me cry :)

It's time to finish up my work now. I can go in about 1 hour!! YEY!!!!!
Do you ever get that "my mouth's so sticky and gummy I can hardly swallow" feeling? Well, I have it right now! For some reason, being awake all night makes me go all gummy, and also my hands smell odd. Can't quite figure that one out yet.

Chris - I read all about Dean, and you're right. He is very odd! I honestly thought there was some sort of history there...! Oh, and about the whole text size thing (just been back to sugary abuse!), if you have Windoze, then go to View-->Text Size-->Largest. Worked for me, and I could then read Wicked Fairy. Or do you yanks have something different? lol! It's a lot easier than actually hunting for some programme...

I'm adding some more links to the sidebar, cos they're cool!
Check out the meme I made!

Chris! Look to your right ----> and you will see I have done as I promised :)

I'm at work again, and I decided I really do HATE these waking nights. How anyone chooses to do them is beyond me, really it is.

Why does work always have to be about bitchin', and lacking vital stuff, and crap? I need a new job, and as soon as I have finished my training here, I'll be off! Me and F are planning on having our own place one day (work, not home - we already have one of those!), and so far the choices are a) a self suficient farm, b) a small restaurant, or c) the favourite at the moment - some land with carp ponds on. Doesn't sound very exciting, I know, but we like the idea :)

I really love the fact that other people have come over to my site! Nice to know that I'm read :) Thanks to everyone who's taken the time to read my little bloggie and to comment.

Anyway, more later, most likely!

Just been over to Doc the Weasel's site and seen his new quickie quiz, which I just had to pilfer! Made me chuckle :)

So, in conclusion for the night (cos I think I have actually damanged my eyes now), I will go get some food, and then watch the tv, and probably do some work at some point! Please comment, you know you want to! :)
This is stolen from a site which stole it from a site which I believe stole it from another site, so what's the point in saying where it came from?! It really makes you think... Well, I will admit that I took it from speakmemory!! (Just so I don't get told off!)

Discovered a new blog, which is pretty cool. Check Julie out!
As you will see, I have added a little (or large) section to the right which has bits and bobs about me, so you can all get a fuller picture :) Saw this on a couple of people's pages, and thought I would try the same thing. I'll have to make it interesting reading!

I'm curious to know how well the show "Charmed" is known on the other side of the pond. I've been inroduced to it by a friend since it arrived over here in the UK, and I think I am now addicted to it. Unfortunately, I have managed to miss every one of the episodes in the new series so far. I'm still catching up with the old ones on the Living channel!

One of the clients here has been given a wristband communicator - essentially looks like a big watch, but has 4 recordable buttons on it that you can record words onto. This should help her when she goes out, in asking for things. She can talk, don't get me wrong, but she has the mentality of a 4 yeard old (she's 28). This means that if asked who she loves, she says "David Beckham!" about 50 times. Then she might say "David mine, David marry me!". She's very sweet, but I can't see how recording words on this wrist band thingy is going to help.

Also, no one has managed to work out how to record on it yet... except for me! ha ha ha :) I am trying to think of good things to say on it as no one will be able to change them! So far, I have recorded one thing: "Do you like scary movies?", and it came out remarkably like the voice changer that is used in Scream! Made me laugh, anyway! I'm still thinking on the other 3...

Polos. I'm eating a helluva lot of them at the moment. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but 2 packets is more than the none I was eating before!
Got this from Unconscious Mutterings.

The idea is that you get the list of words and then type the first word that comes into your head. Very Freudian! Pleas link to them if you use it :)

  1. Pitbull:: mental
  2. TD:: No idea what this is!
  3. Carter:: Bush
  4. Japan:: Pearl Harbour
  5. 50:: cents
  6. Streak:: blonde
  7. Rifle:: scope
  8. Trap:: mouse
  9. Easter:: Christ
  10. Mitt:: Glove
