Yeah splitting logs is good. So is breaking something that needs to be broken for whatever reason. Assuming of course that you have something on hand that needs breaking.


Get a clean mace and tarp and a couple pumkins, put the pumkins on the tarp then beat the hell out of the pumkins and use the remains for some pumkin based food. It's destructive and constructive!


Heh, that sound's pretty great. I'll have to give it a shot next time pumpkins are in season.

BAH PEOPLE NEED TO STOP BRINGING UP MY EX

Also, referring to me as "hers" because she introduced me to this group? Totally not ok.

Didn't you know? You're indefinitely her exclusive property.

Seriously though, here's an e-cookie. I hate being referred to as property too.

Great. I was told a customer needed to come in early. So I wake up early, drag myself to work, speed because I was going to be a few minutes late, then...nothing. Oh, turns out they're not coming in early. Thanks for letting me know about that, sales guy.

And, I've just spoken to my mother for the last times before she goes into hospital tomorrow for open heart surgery to replace her aortic valve and bridge. And fit a pacemaker (possibly). 

I know this is run of the mill surgery these days and I know she has a 96% chance of surviving. However, she's going to go to hell and back over the next 2 months and there's fuck all I ca n do to help. I also know she's scared, and so am I.

If the fucking filte rs screw this post up I shall not be amused. I' am not in the spirit of mod madness, sorry. You will all have to excuse me for a few days.

*sigh* Orange customer service is annoying. When I signed up for this plan, I was told I could freeze it for a while if I needed to and that that wouldn't affect the deposit I paid that was tied to me being with Orange. Today I called Orange and was basically told that because of the type of plan I was on, I couldn't. So I called the store where I got the plan and they basically refused to talk to me over the phone because they claimed they couldn't verify who I was (why they couldn't just ask for my birthday and shit is beyond me; that's what the main Orange helpline did). All they said was that I should either come in person (not going to happen, because they're in Manchester) or call Orange again and specifically ask about the deposit. So I called up Orange again, said almost the same thing as I had the first time, and I got put through to someone who actually knew what they were talking about with no problems whatsoever. They told me exactly what I had initially been told when I got the plan, took down the date I wanted to start the freeze, and that was it. I'm glad it got sorted, but why the fuck didn't that happen in the first place?

Maybe that's why we keep missing out. It doesn't really mean a lot in the grand scheme of things but I would've liked to be able to say that I live in a city. Alas, I live in one of the largest towns in the UK instead.

It's a nice enough place and only some places smell of gone-off beer. It's got a lot better in the 7 years I've lived here. Lot's of development going on and stuff like that. The only thing I dont like is that certain parts become off limits when it's dark but most large urbanised areas seem to get that and the police/ council are trying to combat it.

So, at work, one person has left, and we have the usual rush of people trying to take their annual leave before the financial year ends. What's our manager's plan to get through this? Book more than usual, cross your fingers and hope that everything turns out OK. Brilliant plan! More shit, less shovel.

I must still be overly tired, because I just broke up laughing for that mental image. Caffeine and sleep deprivation. :mrgreen:
