Musings of a reformed internet-phobe

May. 24th, 2008 01:44 am sodding time zones and the horrendous schedule

Right! Dearest friends...

It's official. I hate this timezone. To top this feeling off, one of the major internet blockers (Mam) will be back on wednesday. There goes my easy internet access. Bloody Bingo or whatever she does in here. The other aggravation of the day would be that my return to the USA and a much more civilized timezone has been delayed. Yep. There is a better teachers program available to me but it starts in September going on thru March. So, I have opted for that. Still, means that I dinna get the peace that is solitary habitation till august. Bletch! I hoped to hear you all, however, I job means that I must get sleep for the horror that is tommorrow. POWERFEST!!! (read - aggravated and tired and couldna give a flying F**k Fiddy at work). Selling things to people that are pointless. I really canna face Retail anymore. I simply canna care if you like your shampoo or car or toothbrush or jeans. Ipod? lovely. Just take one, for f's sake and dinna bother me with the details. Sigh. I miss you loads. I need sane and interesting people in my life that are not in the throes of teen angst or asking me questions about the merits of this plug versus that plug.

Hugs to you all.

Sad Fiddy

Oct. 21st, 2006 11:34 pm Cause it has been quite a moment

Seriously, it has been a few months since I posted. I would hate for the LJ to go waste. Also, rather miss having a random say about things.

So I thought that I would re-start the LJ with a meme that all of my dear friends seem to have completed. So...you all have done this one and it seems to have orginated with Ladytory who got it from one of her friends.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was your first thought?
Crap! Where did those wretched freckles come from?

2. When's the next time you will have sex?
I would love to know the answer to that.

3. What's a word that rhymes with "DUCK"?
Pluck....damned stray hairs.

4. Favorite planet?
Pluto. Mostly because its status as a planet was taken away...puir little thing.

5.Who is the 4th person on your missed call list?
A much ignored friend. I am such a jerk sometimes.

6. What is your favorite ring on your phone?
Indiana Jones

7. What shirt are you wearing?
Ugly grey but verra comfy t-shirt

8. What were you doing 20 minutes ago?
YIM...I snuck into YIM...Love YIM

9. Name the brand of shoes you're currently wearing?
Bare foot...however, earlier, was wearing Nike.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
Dark room. Hands down. Dark is always better.

11. What do you think about the last person who took this survey?
I have read loads. They are all lovely and I adore them.

12. If you're in a room with two beds, which one do you sleep in?
The one that has the most wall.

13. What were you doing at exactly midnight last night?
Hugely exciting. I was fast asleep.

14. What was your last text message you received on your mobile?
Allo. ;)

15. How do you like your eggs?
scrambled usually.

16. What's a word/phrase that you say a lot?
bugger it all.

17. Who told you he/she loved you last?
my sister. she was at a party...

18. Last furry thing you touched?
Cookie, the odd looking but lovely wee doggie downstairs.

19. How many Drugs have you done in the last three days?
alcohol, right now as a matter of fact.

20. How many rolls of film do you need to get developed?
none. I don't have a camera.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
probably the summer I was 18. really good summer.

22. Your worst enemy?
ooooo....definetly me...self-sabotaging perfectionist right here.

27. The last song you listened to?
Far away - Nickelback

28. If the last person you spoke to was getting shot, what would you do?
Honestly, that is a horrid question! YIM-wise - really she has enough to worry about with radioactivity and the other would be my father. If Da was shot that would be the end of far too much for me to actually contemplate.

29. If you could punch 1 person in the face, who would it be?
jaysus...just one, eh? The prick that slapped my Mam is Afghanistan.

May. 2nd, 2006 10:07 pm Need some help ...

So, I have a kernel of an idea for story, not an HP one, but a story that has been biting at me none the less. However, I need some impetus to get the the writing part. This would be a fantasy type story set in a land far, far away or an alternate universe or insert fantasy thingy. I am getting to the point. I am looking for quotes to inspire. Quotes pertaining to duty and familial love, victory and defeat or anything that just tickles your fancy.

I would also ask what you would perceive as believable as far a women participating in combat or in which ways would you believe it. I personally have a hard time believing the "Red Sonja" type, sword wielding, amazonian types, though, I do believe that a woman can be just effective, just in a different way.

hugs to you all

Apr. 28th, 2006 08:19 pm The letter of yesterday

Got this from ladytory . Though I also read and appreciated ladytonks letter meme. ladytory kindly gifted me with the letter M.

This is how it works: Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

I give you all, the letter M according to kilcarr

Mannequin : Because it was the first thing that popped into my mind. This is perhaps due to the great deal of time that I have spent dressing and and undressing of these weird headless women. I became so familiar with their hard, plastic and nipple-less forms that I learned how to remove their brassieres one-handed. Otherwise, you ran the risk of looking as though you were molesting those impossibly firm forms. Occupational hazard of being a corporate shopgirl. If anyone cares to know, they were a 34B bra and XS/S knickers. V.V. realistic. http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b258/Mizbeh/foundations.jpg

Mons, Belgium the lovely town that I grew up in. This is the Hotel de Ville in the main square. http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b258/Mizbeh/HotelDeVille.jpg Medieval center and all. Quite lovely, but seriously, it is located in the Borinage ie. the armpit of Belgium.

Magic Really like it. I once had a complete emotional breakdown when I was told that Fairies etc did not exist. Seriously, it was a half box of snotrags sort of break down. But then, there are all sorts of other kinds of magic that are all around us all at all times. I blame my father for my love of fantasy and magic. In the same month, he gave me The Chronicles of Narnia (whole series so that I could read away an entire week spent solely with my Mum) and bought the computer game "Might and Magic" and we spent the rest of the month questing together till the wee hours.

Metric System Because things by 10 make soooo much more sense. The effing systemin the US makes NO sense. What in the name of your granny's bloomers makes a mile make any sense. thumbs, feet, yards ... to this day, have no idea what an ounce really means. Pints are the only thing that makes any visual sense.

Moniker I have alot of them. I like names. Though, do not approve of unfounded name-calling.

Meredith Brooks Anyone remember the song "Bitch"? Well, that stays in my memory as one of the first songs that a) I dance around the kitchen with my little sister too and sang together under our breaths when certain persons went on a rampage. b) Was the first song ever dedicated to me over the radio. (though, this is a fond memory)

Manager, Stage First job that I was ever "let-go" from. Sigh. However, to be fair, I was not doing my best job ever and I really am well-shot of the Pychotic director. It also let me confirm that I really do not enjoy Opera.

Mia Nickname for a disease I nearly disappeared into. To my huge disgust, there are sites allover the net that are pro-mia. This makes me cry. It makes me rage to see how the telly treats this sort of disease. It is not a punchline, it is life threatening.

Make-up I have lots of it. I am quite good at applying it. Just a vanity based hobby I suppose. Have a startling ability to remember all sorts of factoids and theories concerning cosmetics. I sometimes wonder if I missed my calling.

Moseley, William Cute boy. Has a last name starting with M. Just bought the collector's edition of The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe. And, I am a pervy, old-ish lady. See what I mean...
http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b258/Mizbeh/willmose.jpg and then there is this ...
http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b258/Mizbeh/shirtlesswill.jpg but rather sweet http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b258/Mizbeh/willandgeorgie.jpg

so there. This actually took some thought. bugger

Mar. 17th, 2006 04:02 am the percentages are slightly off, but who I am to complain...

Technically, I am only 50% Irish by blood ... maybe the 75% has to do with other Celtic blood interfering... However, in honour of St. Patrick's day and my great autie Alice's 96th birthday... here is yet another meme that gave me a giggle.

You're 75% Irish

You're very Irish, and most likely from Ireland.
(And if you're not, you should be!)

Mar. 1st, 2006 04:54 pm Feels like ...

I never update this thing. However, being so absent for so long. I thought that I would just give everyone a wee update on my life.

Here it goes.


I am simultaneously deliriously happy and having kittens. Verra odd mix, let me tell you. This also means that life gets a touch less hectic as we are out of the rehearsal period. Thank fuck for that!

I miss you all and hope to make a chat at some time in the next two weeks. Seems that we impressed the powers that be enough in preview to warrant an extended run, or I am a complete gooney-bird and didna realize that we did this for two weeks and not one.


*totters off trying to keep the kittens in to shower and go buy flowers, but not at the same time.*
