Usually I am insomniac, but, after running around for an hour, I'm so tired that I have to try hard not to collapse.

And you poor sick people!
I'd be right over with soup and care, but blast the distance.
Do take good care ok!

Well I had an epic nap, and now I'm tucking into a huge bowl of pasta. I still feel a bit sniffly but eating and sleeping is good :)

Darkshines, you know it's just karma for posting pictures of...those things...on the Internet...

*still shuddering*

 ;)

More seriously, hope all of you get well soon.

Everyone that's sick : Get well soon. <3

I'm not ill, but I'll take bubbly ginger soda.

Well I did a load more more on my dissertation, packed some more stuff ready to move (including pulling out furniture and hoovering underneath it, scrubbing the carpet and washing marks off the walls) so I feel I have achieved something tonight.

Reading that back makes it sound like I killed someone in my flat or something, but no I just have a really fussy landlord who would charge me £300 to replace a carpet with marks on, or £50 to repaint the walls if they are scuffed. Gods bless Magic Erasers!

Haha, I also learned that Colgate whitening toothpaste and a little scrubbing will remove red hair dye from a lilac carpet, so I'm happy!

Really? Dammit....I should've tried that before I moved out....

What colour shall I paint my nails, black or red? My hair is both....

Athena

  • Guest
Then it's obvious. Both. What's really pretty is if you paint a dark layer of red, then just brush the black over the top. Or vice-versa.  ;D

Ok, just a short one. It's called, Ice cream parlour.
:
Long ago, in the old city, there was a ice cream parlour.

It was run by a very kind old man, who had watched all the children of the city grow up

And knew them all by name.

He always kept the shop clean, and orderly.

But as he grew even older, it got harder to keep clean, but he still managed.

He always had a smile on his face, even though he was losing money.

One day, one of the local teenagers came into the shop, he looked pale

The old man asked him whats wrong

and the teen just started apologizing, and glancing from side to side

again, the old man asked whats wrong

The teen said he was sorry.

more than a "mite"...

and you would quote my love wouldn't you, my love? *makes more sense if you live inside my head*
In all reality, "steampunk" is anachronistic, innit? Otherwise it's just Victorian dress-up.

chain smokin', sleep needin', apparel designin', mohawk havin', tea drinkin', steady cursin', boy charmin', card readin' rabble-rouser and amusement park cleverly disguised as a woman
