|aaaarrrggghhh! Darn Uni finance!
Can't look at my results, still, because though I've been to finance to sort out debts, they've not processed it yet!
Grrr, grrr, grrr.
OK, Wednesday I'll try again, and then go in and sort something out.
I'll also check if I can still start a new degree, or rather apply for it.
Fun, fun, fun. Stll, bought Luicy a bike with stabalisers today, and she loves it! :-)

|What's this place again?
Hmmm ... I think it's been a while!
Currently I'm in that moment between finding out what's happening with my course and doing something about it. Limbo seems a good word to use. Or perhaps The Void!
Actually, neither of those count, because I am doing stuff, like sorting out debts so that I can get my results and considering possibilities, like leaving University and ... what? ... oh, yes, I DID say leaving University ... but then again, I may just start another degree.
It's all undecided at the moment, just checking possibilities, that's all.
Well, see you in a few years! ;-)

|I wonder if it was on camera. Possibly on YouTube soon.
There I was, standing, waiting for the bus to stop when the first wretch came. Into my mouth, swallow, hope the bus stopped soon and let me out. Darn it! It's going around the long way. Second wretch, can't stop it it in my mouth, so in my hand it goes, most of it. Apologies to person in front who caught some on her coat, then third wretch, full on, straight into the storage compartment (luckily nothing in there) Then off the bus quick, to the men's toilet to clean up ... no more sick, thank Gods, but still, wonder if the CCTV was on me, and I wonder if it will hit You Tube anytime soon?
How's that for an update!

|My first day of the year.
Yes, I know, it's the second of January, and, as of half past twelve this morning, it is the first real day of the new year for me.
After seeing in the new year and staying up 'till 2pm, I went to bed expecting to get up sometime yesterday! I didn't, so I missed the first day of the year. I missed Doctor Who, and I missed whatever else I missed.
I really need to get this sleep disorder sorted. Doc says it's up to me to will myself out of bed, but at the moment my will is losing to my won't and I don't seem to be able to do anything about it.
Well, perhaps a visit to my Psychotherapist on Tuesday will help, if I can get up in time for it, of course.
The dillema of being, well, depressed.
Big sighs. And maybe more later.

|Procrastination to a T
I've got a book about improving the mind, and it includes a chapter on procrastination ... which I feel I need to read BEFORE I begin my course work. Is that taking the P out of procrastination? Hehehe

|Meme from Chris
Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given
Bugger Authenticity, Let's Have A Giggle. Viking Re-enactment at its best. There's something about swinging a metal sword at somebody that just feel's so good! I also met my current wife there. Heck, I taught her to fight, and she whooped me at every show, which the audience loved!
2. Monty python and the holy grail
I was in that! The stage version, anyway. "First shalt though pull out the pin. Then shalt thou count to three. THREE shall be the number thaou shalt count, and the counting of the number shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor shall thou count to two, unless thou then proceed to three. FIVE is RIGHT out." Ahhh, memories ... where are they now?
3. playing cards at the student union
Shed. Ahh yes, the child friendly game of Shit Head that developed a life of it's own. 4 walls and a roof, a garage, flat, house ... all the way to mansion and castle. Then there was 2 deck Canasta. High scores galore! More memories.
Being a Vampire was fun! I loved playing Alexander Crowley, and Tom. I seemed to play the madness well! Could go on for ages, but I'll keep it short. Good days!
5 the time warp
It's just a jump to the left! The whole Rocky Horror stuff is GREAT! Let's do the Time Warp again!
Ahhh, even more memories. All good, too. Thanks, Chris.

* Mystical society - in it's many forms.
My pride and joy! From it's inception in 1991 as the Pagan Society, this has grown, shrunk and changed it's name many times, but the mandate remains the same: To provide a safe place for people to discuss their beliefs without condemnation. Current 'Form' is as the Mind, Body and Spirit Society.
My chosen religious way of life. I've been a Pagan for about 22 years now, and can say that I have experienced many of it's varous forms one way or another. It's the path I have chosen to follow, and I'm not likely to change it!
* Bad Jokes!!!
If you insist ... There was this world famous conductor ...
Seriously, my jokes are not ALL bad, but my reputation for bad puns and telling bad jokes means that most people expect all my jokes to be that way. Most are retellings from other sources, so I guess it really IS "The Way I Tell 'Em!"
Long time since I had one! Be they large groups of people gathering together, or just a few select friends, they have always been fun, in my eyes, though there seemed to be a period when nothing but hastle for some poor soul would happen. Couples would split, and new relationships start. But hey, when you wake up one morning after a party to find it still going on, and then we all go to the Student's Union for breakfast, I think you can call that a success!
* Gah! I forgot my other one....how about, Frederick!
This was an NPC from VLARP. A Ventrue who gathers interesting texts on Vampire origins and strange experiments that accidentally kill vampires ... she died of old age! ... Was often in trouble, but always seemed to get away! Perhaps the old Nosferatu mentor was a BIG help in this case.

|Need a HUG!
Sam went into hospital today ... Saint Lukes. It's probably for the best, but I'm already missing her. She's been really depressed, suicidal, lately and she's on full time watch at the moment, to be reviewed tomorrow.
I believe she will be OK in there.
So, I'm stressed to high heaven, but family and friends, Debs, are rallying round.
Oh, and as I haven't said it on here for a while,
SOON BE CHRISTMAS!
Time to play games and hide from the world for a while. Current Mood: gloomy
|Monday, November 24th, 2008|
I'd probably write more on here, but my passive aggressive nature denies me that pleasure. Having said that, twice in 4 days is pretty good for me. Don't expect another for a while though ... I'm feeling particularly aggressive, which just makes me even more passive ... nothing getting done for a while, then!
|Thursday, November 20th, 2008|
|The bad news - good news post.
Bad news. I'm a Passive Aggressive. It's a personality disorder. It's not very nice.
Good news. I'm a Passive Aggressive. It explains soooo much of the shit in my life, past and present. Now I know about it, I can work to overcome it, live with it or at least improve myself in some way.
This was a Sandy update! Rare and special, so enjoy it whilst you can!
|Sunday, October 12th, 2008|
OK, at Christina's request, here is a comment.
I was just going to leave it at that but I won't. I'm doing good at the moment. I'm studying at University, doing my dissertation and enjoying it. Also, Lucy is 17 months and a lovely child. Very intelligent and clever.
Sam's back at University too, which is great as she gets out more often now. I take her to her class and lectures, which is fun. We share time together which is brilliant.
Anyway, that should do for now.

|Follow up about cold
Well, now I have a severe - and VERY painful - ear infection on top of being sick once a day. Lovely! The sooner this all goes away the happier I will be. (Yes, that means I am getting depressed with it all!) Current Mood: pissed off
|Monday, June 2nd, 2008|
|Nice day, except this cold is really bugging me.
When I got back from dropping Lucy off at the nursery today, a strange man was in the kitchen. He'd just installed a dalek into our garage, full of liquid oxygen. This means, of course, that Sam now has Ambulatory Oxygen, which meant that this afternoon the two of us went down town together. It was great walking around town pushing her in the chair. We had lunch, did some shopping and had a coffee at Nero's (Sam had a Hot Chocolate). She was very tired by the time we got back, but she wasn't out of breath and even came down stairs and had tea at the table with Debs and Lucy and me. I'm knackered too, but it was a nice day.
This cold is getting too much, though. It's been really heavy for several days now, headache, sore throat, bunged up, stiff neck etc. It's not shifting.
Oh well, you take the good with the bad I suppose. :-) Current Mood: groggy
|Tuesday, May 27th, 2008|
Sam is getting ambulatory oxygen, canisters that hold about 8 hours of oxygen that she can carry around with her when she leaves!
This is great as we will be able to go out together, go places we'd like to go. She still gets very tired due to the ME, but at least she's not so trapped to the house any more!
As for me, I'm still plodding along. Didn't go to therapy last week as my therapist had a bereavement in the family. STill, this week is on, Friday. Still scared, but positive.
Trying to get more motivated towards my dissertation this coming college year! Need to read so much more, but I never seem to have the time. I'm either looking after Lucy or playing computer games or watching TV. (Hey, one excuse out of three aint that bad!)
Anyway, more another day.
Hmmm, think I'll try a photo ...
Then again, perhaps not! Current Mood: okay
|Monday, May 19th, 2008|
|No more Heroes any more.
Hmmm ...it seems that my interpretation of Hero has upset a lot of people. Well, so be it. I'll just repeat a few of my most important ideas.
1) Each to there own.
2) There is no such thing as absolute truth, including this statement.
3) Do unto others as you would have them do unto others.
If people want to argue, then fine, I will argue. I like a good discussion.
But when people start to throw insults around because they think they are superior in their beliefs,, then I will try to show them the faults they seem to ignore in themselves. If this is wrong to you, then don't argue with me.
End of. (as certain people say) Current Mood: irritated

|Life! Don't talk to me about Life.
Here I am, brain the size of a planet and I can't even get a degree! I have a pain down the left hand joints of my body.
Oh well, at least I have a beautiful wife and a great little 1 year old girl. One already? Where did the time go? She's nearly walking, and saying some words. I love her to bits and I'm such a proud daddy! Even if she does sometimes call me daddy daft!
Sam's not good at the moment, after her last Brittle Asthma attack almost killed her, she's slowly recovering and hating it! She hates being so confined and useless, but she needs to recover before trying to do too much, too fast.
Her near-death has left me in a weird state, depressed and occasionally out of it, but still looking after Lucy (with a lot of help from Debs).
Looking forward to Tomorrow when I take Lucy to a stay and play thingy. Went to one today and that was fun! Oh, and she will also visit the new nursery she's going to, to see what it is like. Tomorrow night, I'll be roleplaying with my new character which should be good fun. Hmmm ... crazy, or aloof? Serious, or sociophile? The possibilities are endless. Current Mood: confused
|Sunday, November 11th, 2007|
Apart from dealing with a certain problem possitively and effectively at the moment,
Sam will be hopefully coming home 2 weeks on Tuesday!
I've so missed her and love her.
Anyway, more when we get confirmation! Current Mood: happy
|Wednesday, October 31st, 2007|
|Positive vibes ... but ...
Feeling good today. Went to see councillor, will send a text to my lecturer tonight, Lucy is OK, bar a cold (taking her to docs tomorrow) and feeling generally positive but ...
Feeling low, mainly because I'm missing Sam, and because I've a family crisis heading straight for me and no way to avoid it, just soften the blow for all concerned. I've also not been to classes for past two weeks, due to panic, and need to catch up with work on both writing back and, more importantly Space, Place and Text which is due oin before Christmas!
Still, life goes on, and I did have someone approach me today about my Writing Back project, offering their help.
And Sam is sounding much better, it's great to hear her laugh and sound confident and positive again. Current Mood: contemplative
