Mum has this ornament thing, it's the word 'calm' spelled out in individual freestanding ceramic letters. She keeps it on top of the dresser in her bedroom.

She says she can always tell when I've been in her room because she'll walk in to find 'calm' has been changed to 'clam'. Yes, Freud would be proud :p.

I can't NOT do it. I'll be visiting Ye Ole Homestead and just nip in to her room to deposit a towel in the laundry basket and I'll do it. Sometimes, if I'm upstairs for some other reason, I'll go in specifically to do it just coz I was in the neighbourhood.

And every time I do it it cracks me up. I've had my brother shout down the hallway from his room that he knows I'm messing with Mum's ornament coz he can hear me giggling. Even worse, he referred to it as 'the clam giggle'. Apparently I have a specific 'fucking with your stuff' giggle that's different from the other glee sounds in my repertoire. Who knew?

Quite clearly I am a 12 year old boy trapped in the body of an almost-30-year-old woman.

What bad habit have you broken?


Nearly 16 months smoke-free. No cravings or anything.

I know, I know, I said I was gonna stop neglecting my LJ. And I will, just as soon as shiny things (and Tumblr) stop distracting me.

Siblings and Chris went to the SFX Weekender in wales last weekend and met Sylv and Sophie and whasserface from Torchwood. I have pics and stuff. I'll post em soon for the non SMASters.

I have finally finished setting up all my laptops and personalising my phone.

It's only taken me the better part of 8 months. Why? OCD mainly. Everything's gotta be just so, and if it isn't just so, scrap the lot and start over.

This is why I can't play world building games :p.

Are you more of an optimist or a pessimist?


Is the glass half full or half empty? Depends on its previous state. If the glass was empty to begin with it's half full. If the glass was full to begin with it's half empty.

Context is everything. As is pedantry it would seem :p.

What do you love about the wintertime?

The smell.

Don't look at me funny :p. Winter has a smell, and it is glorious.

Also long evenings, and lights, and snow, and Christmas.

And the cold. And vegging on the couch with a duvet and a book.

I loves a bit o' winter, I does.

Let us continue on my journey down the ugly tree :p.

School daze.

There's Nick again. It used to be a thing, having school photos taken with your sibling(s) as well as solo. I think I look quite nice in this picture, in a cheeky chappy sorta way...

And then...Attack of the NHS glasses!!!

Here be monstersCollapse )

What do you do when you stumble upon the massive box of family photos while looking for something completely unrelated? Why, you spend an evening looking through them, picking out a handful that aren't too awful and decide to post them on the internet in lieu of letting your online buds see the proper munter you are today :p.

So let's start at the beginning. Baby Phlege.

Young Phlege - The tale of a cygnet who turned into a duck LMAO!!Collapse )
