Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Moral: Rum is a nice drink.  Just water it down with something other than water  Undecided 

I recommend Coke (other cola drinks will work, but Coke tastes better).

Anyhow, the rum was only watered down (that's what "Grog" is) in an effort to prevent sailors getting completly rat-arsed while at sea / onboard ship. If you've ever seen a drunk sailor (and their tendency to get that way), you'd understand WHY....  Grin  It also made the grog ration last a bit longer.  Cheesy

Moral: Rum is a nice drink, try it neat, sipping it slowly. Or pour cola in it.

I prefer my Rum (dark Navy type) neat (no ice, water or any other mix). I tend to drink my Absinthe neat too, same with my whisky. I just prefer the taste that way.  Smiley

Rum straight up, on the rocks for me.  I'm a Captain Morgan's man (I prefer Private Stock), personally.  I will say, rum kicks like a mule, and you cannot help but make the "whiskey face," it is not a drink for the lightweight!  Then again, I use moonshine as a chaser to my everclear/151/tequlia/absinthe shottrain...

No, I am NOT an alcoholic! Wink

My GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH for today:  Gaia online is telling me my password (the one THEY SENT ME) is incorrect.  Which means, I cannot CHANGE my password, I cannot buy a trading pass, and I cannot buy the Bronze Automaton Arm for my avatar (too bad they don't have a straight up replacement HAND...).

Minor, aye, but as Bush once sang, "It's the little things that kill-tearing at my brain again."

Somehow, I've managed to get pains in my neck, left shoulder, upper arm, elbow and lower arm. Plus I'm also suffering from really, really bad teeth ache.  Cry  Embarrassed But still, I'm trying to maintain the old stiff upper lip routine. (oh and the visual migraines aren't helping either)



Round these parts those are all considered signs of heart problems. You might want to seek medical opinions on it, and if you think it's past, just go and have a look see anyway. An ECG couldn't hurt and might catch something that is a bit off.

THIS.  VERY VERY VERY THIS.

I spent a couple days in the 'ospital after the first of the year because of heart problems, all preceeded by those exact signs.

My vocalist spent time in the doctors office, same thing.

I cannot stress enough how important it is that you get yourself checked out ASAP.  In fact, as soon as you read this, GO.  LIVE.  BE FREE! Cheesy

My GAAAAAAAAAAAH:
I have to F12 and revert the site back to IE7 in order to update my avatar...  I just figured that out.  THREE DAYS I've had a white background on my avatar because of this...

Ah well, right now it's fixed, and Powers that Be willing, it'll STAY that way!

(once again with the little things... Damn IE9...  It and it's shiney interface...)

Seconded
I had a heart scare last year and got checked out (just fell over like I had been poleaxed - no reason). Now I know that if anything is about to blow, it isn't my heart. (and I got to see pics from the cat scan - very cool)

Rose from my slumbers at half past four this morning, unable to sleep any more. Had a shave and a coffee, wrote some stuff about the poor behaviour of car drivers, went back to bed.

Didn't awaken again until half past ten, and so much I wanted to do!

Went for a hair cut, a little walk around town to clear the tubes....got back home feeling tired out, fell into a chair with some old sword and sorcery.

Stamina is what I need. A bit bottle.

Just been out in the shitty violent seaside part of our town for the first time in 5 months, as I'm getting into the taxi some dickhead steals my hat for the second time, so I ask it back again, jokingly, as before, he throws it to his mate, who I do the same for, all of a sudden some other twat lamps me in the jaw, throws me down onto the floor, I get two kicks to the head and my precious kebab is sprawled over the pavement until some nice girl steps in and tells them in no uncertain terms to fuck off.

All in all, a fairly expected end to the night. My jaw is gonna kill tomorrow. GAH.

I never, ever wear hats out unless I am 100% sure no-one is going to nick it (and even then I use hat elastic and never just rely on good faith!) Mr C doesn't believe me when I say "take your hat off" when we are about to encounter a group of chavs, perhaps someone will knock the sense into him to prove me right. Neanderthals are disgusting, and I am sorry you got hurt!

Reminds me of last time I left a movie theatre using the "backdoor."  Some young punk and his friends tried to rough me up a bit and make off with my wallet.  Well, the guessed my cash pocket (I carry my cash and my wallet seperate for just such an occation), and made off with it.  In return, I broke/dislocated/sprain/cracked/not100%sureexactlywhatIdid one of their wrists, gave the other a fat eye, and ended up with a broken nose.

AGAIN.

That was 6 years ago.  DAMN I feel old now!

Tyrant Seabear, that's horrible. Stay safe. Taking your hat off is a good idea, no-one notices it if it's in your hand. When you're on your own you can't always rely on a stranger to help you. An intimidating looking metalhead sat with me on the train right when a gang of hooligans fixed on me. If he'd got on another carriage, it's unlikely anyone else would help. The Bystander Effect is shameful but true.

Makes ya proud to be British doesnt it? Roll Eyes

Where I live, also a seaside city, these kinda morons are out constantly prowling for a victim, you literally take your life in your hands if you decide to walk home after a night out.

A few years ago my girlfriends brother got such a kicking he had to have facial reconstruction surgery, all totally unprovoked.

The only good thing is you didnt eat that kebab, they arent very good for you ya know Wink

Hope your jaw doest hurt too much.

Seven...  Bloody... Hours...

I have to walk out the door in seven bloody hours.  Tonight will be another night of next to no sleep, and the morn will be gray, wet, and cold.

Couple that with the fact my pinkey is in a bloody SPLINT, and the morning holds band rehersal...

Damn.

Damn it all.

Yeah the hat was ill-advised, just annoys me that it happened 30 seconds after my friends had got their taxi away, and I had my taxi door open  Angry

Re:- the hat situation, If any one makes a lunge for mine, I always counter them by saying "Sorry love/mate, but the hat was last thing that my ex bought me before she died" (a very big lie, I know). But, they usually back off with appologies.

TY all for your comments, about my neck et cetera. I phoned the doctor and he says its a trapped nerve (talking painkillers & sleeping tablets for relief) will see he at end of month for a check up.

Lashing building supplies onto the car when the bungie cord lets go. As I explained to the optician later, if it wasn't for my glasses I would be in emergency with my eyeball in a paper cup. And this mornig I have to go into work so won't be able to use said building supplies.

Seabear, I've had that happen to me too, a number of years ago - only difference, no hat involved. Turns out the drunken chavs just didn't like the way I looked, and so seemingly I deserved a trip to A&E to have four sets of stiches in my lips and be left with a Deviated septum. I still can't breath properly.

THROW OUT THE BUNGIE CORDS. As you've just discovered, they are really bloody dangerous. My da's a builder, and insists that they're one of the most dangerous things on a construction site; bad enough that he's banned them from all his sites. Get yourself some ratchet straps instead.

I wish you and yours the best in this...  Will be keeping your sis in my prayers (my niece had a similar experiance when she was that age-she was born with a rare genetic condition and they have to keep her sedated the entire time she's in due to IV lines etc...).

My gah today:  Feaver's up, wife's having to do all the work, daughter's got a cold, and parents are driving me up my everloving wall.

On the bright side:  We've narrowd down what I have!  It's either bacterial infection in my heart, bacterial infection in my...  er...  manly bits, the flu, or strep.  None are exactly what I'd call plesent.  Is it wrong that I'm hoping for the flu?
