from strawberrri :
Thanks for the cake recipe! I don't know if he will get a home-made cake for his bday, it really depends on his naps the day before, hehe x
from dangerspouse :
Dammit, I want to see a picture of the lizard cake! (I bet it was decorated in Art Gecko style, ho ho ho.) Anyway, thanks for the note! And yes, I, and many in my socio-economic class, live in a constant state of terror. It's enough to make one sick....
from dangerspouse :
That is too cool! Good for you guys - and the rest of the happy couples, too :) E la!
from dangerspouse :
Yup. Foil, then moved to epee. You too?
from whaleart :
I saw your Panama pics -- thought you looked rather nice in your pictures! Don't be too down on your looks :)
from strawberrri :
Thank you, this is my favourite point of his babyhood so far :) Hope you're catching up on some sleep - deprivation can make one feel so shitty. And I hope you got the tax return done, though it's not the end of the world if you didn't xx
from annanotbob2 :
Hugs xx.
from dangerspouse :
I am absolutely thrilled to hear that you not only made the soup, but enjoyed it! Seriously, that made my night. Thanks for letting me know! I guess I'll have to list 'possum as "optional" in the future for my overseas readers. Good to know it doesn't suffer too terribly without it. Hey, thank you very much for the most excellent note, and I wish you and yours just as excellent a Christmas. Cheers! (And for my present? Why, the same thing I ask for every year: being listed in your "Favorites" section. Wrapped nicely, please.)
from dangerspouse :
Oh my dear, you absolutely MUST try it with opossum. The very thought of leaving it out gives me the vapors. (My goodness. Me? Facetious? On the internet? ME?? Heaven forfend!) :)
from dangerspouse :
I had no idea there were beaches in Wales - I thought it was all corgis and...I guess that's it. There's more than corgis in Wales??
from strawberrri :
I'm so sorry for your and your friend's loss xx
from strawberrri :
Thanks :) He's called Leo and is three weeks old today! X
from strawberrri :
Thank you! I'm 14 weeks now so I suppose I should do a diary entry soon :D Sorry to hear your babies have been poorly, must be such a worry xx
from buffylass :
Thankyou! Sorry I'm so late in replying. As everyone kept telling me, things are finally easier. Still hard work, but definitely easier. And sometimes even enjoyable! xx
from candoor :
Maybe once a ear I stop back in here at D-Land and always tell myself I really must make more time for this place. I don't listen to myself, but my intentions are good. Anyway, this note is here because I knew a Moo once here, a MandyMoo, any relation? :)
from dangerspouse :
D'OH!! I guess just because I experienced those same symptoms when I was pregnant, it doesn't mean everyone else does, eh? Sorry about that! Well then...whatever it was, I hope it's better now! (If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go flush my head down the toilet now....) :)
from blujeans-uk :
Just to clarify, NOT preggers
from dangerspouse :
Lesson learned: don't watch Fantastic Beasts while preggers.
from strawberrri :
A while ago I looked up Andrew on Twitter and asked whether he could please save dear Stepfie's diary from ever disappearing. He didn't reply unfortunately :(
from onlyemma :
A note!!! It was so lovely to get a note from you on diaryland, it's like the old days. I miss this place, diaryland is like going back to my teenage years as it seems like this site hasn't ever been updated. It's actually nice that some things stay the same. I like your last entry. I'm glad you are so comfortable with who you are, you should be because you are fantastic.
from strawberrri :
Ahhhh the magpies sound awesome!
from strawberrri :
Sorry Kirsty, posted on your notes by mistake! X PS. Pic of your tattoo? :)
from strawberrri :
Just had to Google pregnancy rhinitis and what the fuck!? As if the actual being pregnant, giving up booze, runny eggs, soft cheeses, cured meats and Mr whippy isn't bad enough! (Plus all your crappy palpitation stuff). Well Holly, I read your entry nine days after you posted so it's even less time to go now :) Hope you're feeling a little brighter too xx
from dangerspouse :
You're right. When it get rights down to it, in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter. There are enough things that do, things that require actual attention. Who you're attracted to isn't one of them. Well said there, missy (or mister, on the odd Saturday night). :)
from annanotbob2 :
I did a course when I was at Uni, in the 80s, The Biological and Social Bases of Sex Differences, and in the end it's all just rubbish. Masculine and feminine are adjectives with no fixed meaning, varying massively over time and place. One in a thousand people are born with indeterminate sex so that a decision has to be made as to whether they are male or female. Lots of people are very dogmatic about rights and wrongs in this area but it's more complex than they realise - though also quite simple - we're all people.. I think it's sad when a person feels they need surgery because they don't fit in to a box society has created. I could go on about this all night but I won't. x
from annanotbob2 :
Thanks, I'm just hoping it doesn't get cancelled again. I put litter in litter bins, recycle all that stuff and am keeping loads of brightly coloured rope and interesting things to make a big outdoor artwork. That's the plan. With a glue gun... x
from strawberrri :
I miss her! She should still be here. And it's weird, thinking of her daughters as little girls, when they're quite a bit more grown up now. I wish them so much strength to get through this x
from annanotbob2 :
Hugs xxxx
from annanotbob2 :
You're so welcome - I wrote it for you, to share with you - we're in the same community, aren't we? We should be in a pub together somewhere, telling stories about our friend. Hugs xx
from strawberrri :
I miss John too.
from strawberrri :
I'm glad to know I'm not alone. The death of stepfie has hurt my heart deeply. I have thought of her almost constantly since I found out (from Anna's note to you). I feel desperately sad for her daughters, husband, siblings and parents. So awful to lose a child. So awful for her kids to lose her. It is so unfair and so sad x
from annanotbob2 :
I agree - the internet has brought us new kinds of relationships but with no guidelines when it comes to things like this. I did know Stepfie personally, but last year an American blogger I had come to know and love died and I didn't know what to do with myself, so I can understand what you mean. We need rituals to cope with grief and sharing and I don't know what else. I'm going to Stepfie's funeral next Monday - I am pleased to see that it's going to be held in a massive church as I think it needs to be. xxx
from annanotbob2 :
I just read through your notes - so many from Stepfie, always with such good advice, so lightly given. Her girls are glorious testimonies to what a great, instinctive mother she was. Hugs across the internet xxx
from annanotbob2 :
It was on the 26th - Wednesday of last week xxx
from annanotbob2 :
Hi, I'm sorry to tell you in a note, but Stepfie has gone. This is the note I posted to mutual friends "Dear friends, I am so sad to be writing to tell you that our darling Sarah Stepfordtart died yesterday morning. Her sister wrote: "After an unexpected relapse, Sarah was re-admitted to the hospice yesterday, gravely ill, and died peacefully and with true dignity at 8.15am today." I'm so sorry to be the bearer of such bad tidings - I know that we will all sorely miss her friendship, her wit and her awesome writing. L asked for it not to be 'spread all over the internet' but it's creeping out so I thought I would contact you, our mutual friends. Love and hugs, Anna xx
from buffylass :
:D xx
from buffylass :
Ha, still no joy. Sense trying for a baby will not be the sexy fun trip that some people make it out to be, but hopefully will get there eventually! xx
from stepfordtart :
I have no pithy words of wisdom to offer on the subject of child-bribery but Im guessing, as he is too little to remember it much (and therefore taunt you with it when he is a teenager), it is pretty much ok. :-) s x
from stepfordtart :
Keep the entry - dont delete it. When things are better/worse you can look back at it and snigger at how wrong/right you were! ;-) s xx
from stepfordtart :
Dont get a nine month old anything. He wont know. Clothes (especially ones he'll grow into!) are ok if you must. Wrap up a rusk for him to suck - he'll be made up! s x
from buffylass :
Thankyou so much :) it was totally fantastic in the end, even on one hour's sleep. Now we're slowly working our way through all the leftover wine, cake and cheese! xx
from stepfordtart :
Not a horrible mother. Just a normal one. As long as he knows there's nothing else if he doesnt eat what youve given him, then he'll probably turn out alright. Its always the best prepared, most nutritious, child centred stuff they turn down...then they're eating biscuits out of the dogs bowl the next minute. Dont beat yourself up. xx
from buffylass :
Ha don't worry, I have moved on from my tie/dress non-matching now that I have my hair to worry about. I'm sure that actual enjoyment will arrive... sometime in the future! xx
from stepfordtart :
No. I have all those things but Im still waiting for grown-upness ;-) s x
from strawberrri :
Thanks for stopping by my diary for a catch up! I'm not sure I've had much to say since 2013 though :) Your latest entry was incredibly touching, I hope you don't feel too sad xx
from buffylass :
Thankyou :) Just under 4 months - excitement and terror building! xx
from buffylass :
Beautiful entry. Sorry I'm 8 days late xx
from stepfordtart :
Game of Cosplay Uk on FB :-)
from stepfordtart :
Yep. Or so Im led to believe, as we dont have skyatlantic :-( Was it good? s x
from stepfordtart :
I blame everything on sprouts. Sprouts are evil. s x
from stepfordtart :
Shite on a Bike!!!!!! Huzzah for you and yours! Great to hear from you - its been tooooooooo long. s x
from strawberrri :
Congratulations on second bambino! Lovely to have an update on your life :) xx
from stepfordtart :
Well Holy Mother of Fuck! Hello, girl! How ya been? s x
from stepfordtart :
Hey Girl! Are you still out there somewhere? I miss tales of you and Supermoo and Minimoo and hope y'all are OK. s x
from stepfordtart :
Hey! Nice to hear from you! Hope you and Supermoo patch things up when all is back to normal. loves. s x
from stepfordtart :
OMIGOODNESS! ONE???? How can that be true? Surely he is only maybe two or three weeks at most. Are you sure youve got that right? ;-) s x
from stepfordtart :
its only momentarily. Try "blue" "jeans". That might do it ;-)
from stepfordtart :
Baking IS a science, fersure but I'll confess to cutting corners when Im doing 'family baking'. My family love cake in all its forms and sometimes speed is of the essence. If anything turns out a bit less spectacular than I anticipated, we just put custard on it and call it 'pudding' instead! s x
from stepfordtart :
I got 32, too (I fucked the science ones but Im awesome at Geog - something to do with teaching it all week last week, I guess!), but the monkey got 17 - he must be learning! Altogether now "GO-pherrrr TU-Naaaa!" s x
from stepfordtart :
I remember the first morning I woke up after my kids slept through and being completely disoriented - I thought Id somehow forgotten to get up in the night or something. I was all "WTF!!!! Its not DARK!!! Whats going ON???". Here's to sleeping at the right times! s x
from stepfordtart :
Not wigging out is always a good thing! As is cherry sponge pudding thingy. s x
from stepfordtart :
lovely lovely photos! Maybe dont bother putting minimoo in his high chair until the food is ready? - babies dont care if its gone a bit cold so you can get everything ready while he's playing (or in the babybouncer in front of the telly, watching the news - stoopid babies think he newsreader's talking directly to THEM!) and then just scoop him up and commence shovelling! s x
from stepfordtart :
Smiling at #1, #2 and #3. Not so much at #4 - that sucks. Hope you find a solution soon. s x
from stepfordtart :
Rude? No, not at all. D'land does stuff like that to me all the time, too. Its a bit crappy and 'homemade', isnt it? I think thats what I like about it : ) s x
from stepfordtart :
Yeh, it does go horribly quickly. Before you know it you will be reading out bits of poorly constructed internet 'erotic fiction' to your child and criticising the grammar together. No? Just me and Jooj then. *looks embarrassed* s x PS she was transcribing my rant about rubbish porn as I was ranting it to her (and we were laughing like 'tards) and now she's put it on her blog. Bloody kids.
from stepfordtart :
Thanks for your note. Ive shied away from 'support groups' (and online cancer forums) cos Ive always found them so bloody depressing. If I could find another vain, mental, formerly-hot, fuckup like me that would be great but everyone seems so.....normal! Meh. s x
from stepfordtart :
Have shower, put custard on brownies, call them 'chewy chocolate sponge pudding'. job done. s x
from stepfordtart :
16 more years and you can ask him to leave home if he's still doing that. s x
from strawberrri :
I saw my friend Tori with her baby Alana today (baby is only slightly younger than Minimoo). She said Alana has screamy weeks and placid weeks, so hopefully your little one is just going through a (preferably short) phase. Good luck! xx
from stepfordtart :
I cant watch those kind of adverts either. Nor any news item which has little brown babies with flies stuck around their eyes. I think youll be a good mum : ) s x PS Thanks for your note!
from stepfordtart :
I was holding my breath for you there a bit, dear! Thanks for telling this - brought back some funny little memories. I have lovely pics of Jooj and Treacle sleeping on Shagnasty's chest....if only there were some way to photoshop him out of them, they'd be great! s x
from tobehis :
Stumbled across your profile under "users online now" box and had to smile really big when I saw you liked Enchanted and Jane Eyre. You lost me on The Hunchback of Notre Dame, though. Watched it for the first time last week, and it was TERRIBLE. Disney definitely messed up BIG TIME trying to make such a horrible story into a kids movie. I promptly threw it away after watching it.
from stepfordtart :
heehee! cute pics! s x
from stepfordtart :
Im loving this little serial! I nearly had Treacle in the Hospital loo after a big contraction took me by surprise, and I think Supermoo did better than Shagnasty when requested to get food. He came back with vending machine chicken soup, which I got one whiff of and promptly puked up all over my one pair of pyjamas. Glad to hear the small one sleeping a bit more now - he'll be sleeping through the night before you know it. The first 16 years are the worst. s x
from buffylass :
Happy New Year! eah it's really sad... I dunno, I realised he hadn't updated in ages so Googled his name on a hunch and came up with his obituary in the local paper in Illinois. I guess the breathing problems he was writing about caught up with him :( xx
from stepfordtart :
So glad you're home safe and sound and MERRY CHRISTMAS to all The Family Moo! s x
from buffylass :
Hope you and the wee one are out of hospital by now. I can't image being responsible for a tiny person, so think you're doing totally brilliantly xx
from stepfordtart :
Ooch! You sound jolly unhappy, dear. It sounds like a very big case of hormones, with added 'consultant insensitivity' thrown in for good measure. Its lonely in hospital, especially when you see other people going home and youre still sat there like a lemon. It will all right itself quicker than you think - honest! In the meantime, if minimoo really wont settle, and you know he's fed and clean, ask the staff to take him for a wee while - you need your sleep too and they know that. If he's grumpy and rooting, he's not necessarily hungry - he might want a suckle for comfort. See if he will suck his thumb, maybe. Treacle wouldnt settle and I thought about a dummy but the first time I tried it she spat it out and put her thumb in instead! She was only about four or five days old so I guess she mustve been doing that in the womb as well. Babies are weird creatures, they never do what you think theyll do, but pretty much all of them turn out ok in the end. Hang in there! s x
from stepfordtart :
I think its a bit early to be wearing the 'terrible mother' crown, dear! If the bloody things came with a manual it would make the whole thing a bit easier, Im sure, as you could have looked up page 768 and compared the graph of 'number of pees' with the coefficient of 'number of feeds'. You will make many and several hideous mistakes over the next few months but I can guarantee they will all be fixable and mini-moo wont remember any of them when he is big enough to hate you. s x
from strawberrri :
Brill, brill, brill! So happy to hear of your safe arrival. Yaaaaay! xx
from stepfordtart :
Oh, thats lovely! Many many congratulations to you all. *smooches* s x
from annanotbob2 :
Yay! Congratulations and much happiness to all three of you xxx
from annanotbob2 :
Wishing you all the best xxx ps I've changed blogs
from stepfordtart :
Naps TOTALLY rule! I have taken to having one when I get in from school, and jolly nice it is, too. Thanks for your note, much appreciated. s x
from stepfordtart :
Didnt go ECK-ZACK-ly as I planned, if Im honest. Thanks for thinking of me, you kind lady, you! s x
from stepfordtart :
Hot curry, raspberry leaf tea and a nice shag should get that bubba out! Looking forward to the next update...! s x
from stepfordtart :
You know, I thought of you the second I wrote about 'Dr Google'. Thanks for confirming what I knew in my heart to be true. Im still managing to resist his evil charms (but only just) and am feeling a whole lot more mellow about it at the mo. Maternity leave (or eternity leave - it DOES get a bit boring) is da shizzle, when else do you have a LEGITIMATE excuse for lazing around the house in your jammies, feet up on the coffee table, watching Jeremy Kyle and feeling superior? I found 'strolling around galleries and getting an expensive cake in the cafe' and 'picking stuff up in John Lewis and putting it down again' were also excellent uses of my time back in the day. s x
from stepfordtart :
Oh my GOD! That "its last seasons blahblahblah" sums up EVERYTHING thats wrong with the Motherhood Industry. Seriously, its a fucking nightmare. Many and various props to you, dear, for not buying into it. s x
from stepfordtart :
Keila ShitSlinger! Good Gravy, I havent heard that name for...err...15 years or so. Pregnancy nazis can kiss my arse. They add astonishing amounts of stress to new mamas, in the same way womens mags like Cosmo make you feel inadequate if you arent a size zero corporate exec with a gigolo reclining on the chaise longue in ones exclusive Knightsbridge pied a terre. Bollocks to the lot of em. Sounds like you will be a TOP mama, even without all that tripe. s x
from stepfordtart :
Heeheehee! Moses Baskets! Ooh, I remember them very fondly - first off standing at the door talking to the postman and not really having the handles evenly spaced in my hand. When I looked down the baby had slid into a squelchy ball at one end of the basket. Ooops. And then when I finally realised Jooj was too big for the basket cos I put her in it and it just looked like she was wearing the damn thing like a turtle on its back. Harhar, Theyre as tall as me now, the little bastards. s x
from strawberrri :
Ah, every time you update I remember how exciting it is for you and Supermoo (and us readers)! My friend Tori is due 17th December. My maths is rubbish but I don't think you're that far apart. Wishing you ease of movement and comfort :) x
from stepfordtart :
See if there's an NCT group near you. Personally I found them all to be pregnancy Nazis, but they have THE BEST 2nd hand sales! s x
from stepfordtart :
Im bizarrely excited for you - maybe Im getting perilously near to 'the grandma stage'; Ive stopped worrying that I might get pregnant and started thinking about other people's wee babbies! I didnt get mushy about other people's babies when I was pregnant - babies are boring as hell unless theyre your own!......oh, and even then they can be pretty boring! s x PS dont worry about not replying, its not like youve got nothing else to think about! PPS Yay for supermoo!
from stepfordtart :
I know when its your first you kind of want everything all shiny and brand new but I really would urge you to beg, steal or borrow as much as you possibly can - especially things that baby will grow out of in NO TIME AT ALL (like a baby bath!) as otherwise you are setting yourself up for doing a bloody great car boot sale in six months time! Oh, and if I learned anything, its 'get a buggy/pram/whatever that you can get into/out of the car with one hand as you wont always have somewhere to put the baby while you heave the bloody thing into the boot. I made that mistake. My pram weighed as much as a small car and would only fit in the boot if there was NOTHING else in there. How long you got left now? s x
from stepfordtart :
Sounds like you guys are settling in pretty much OK, with a few adjustments :$. Thanks for your note over at mine - I replied, It was just TOO weird. Im going to have a bigger belly than you if I carry on with my cookie frenzy! s x
from stepfordtart :
Fingers crossed for a smooooooth move! (and awfully glad youre not dead!) s x
from stepfordtart :
Scans are soooooo much better these days - when I had my kids you just got a kind of fuzzy, blobby bit of shiny paper (which fades, incidentally!) on which you could sort of work out some kind of Barbapapa type alien being. I am envious. I almost want to have another child so I can get a fancy schmancy modern scan. Actually, no, we'll give that a miss shall we?!! s x
from theswordsman :
That's pretty close, but your description of the bedroom would be an upgrade, and the upstairs is a dentist's office. Next time you dream you're coming, dream you phoned ahead, and I'll be home:) You're actually the second Diarylander that ever dreamed about me, but hers was racy and I think her putting it in writing drove off her boyfriend. Apparently it's more fun if you take me to the Lake District in a convertible. Take care
from stepfordtart :
Awww. Poor you. I think that worrying about who you will become once you have had the baby is a normal feeling, and it is quite difficult; juggling job/husband/child. But its not impossible. Dont read too many baby books/blogs, they'll only give you a false impression of what youre supposed to be doing/thinking. Best advice I ever heard was from my ex-mother in law, talking to her daughter who was wailing 'but Mum, the book says he should...' (talking about her 6 month old baby). Ma-in-law said "ah. Thats probably the problem then. I dont think he's read that book'. Chin up, matey! Being a working ma isnt as bad as they make out. Some of us even survive well into our 40s, relatively unscathed. ; ) s x
from blujeans-uk :
John, I tried to reply via your notes but it's not working. Firstly, thank you! And re: the break, I don't know - they don't normally do that, or at least they haven't since it re-started with Chris Ecclestone. Usually they have the Season then the Christmas special, but maybe they're doing it differently this year.
from theswordsman :
Isn't it just mid-season break for Dr. Who?
from theswordsman :
Congratulations, that's awesome:)
from buffylass :
Huge congratulations! xx
from strawberrri :
CONGRATULATIONS!!! x
from stepfordtart :
multiple yayness to you, dear! s x PS Im lovin your hair like that, btw!
from annanotbob :
That is a seriously top portrait! Congrats on exams and driving test too! xx
from stepfordtart :
Nope, never seen him (although I think I should jolly well like to). It was probably just some kind of subliminal thing after watching a fat-ish, bleached blonde, middleaged something-in-a-frock-but-not-actually-a-girl that made you think of me. s x
from stepfordtart :
If you're both keen and (reasonably) solvent, I'd say what's stopping you? Kids are actually pretty much OK and they only ruin your life if you let them. s x
from annanotbob :
Go for it!
from stepfordtart :
I spoke to Smashthegas and he, too, was bemoaning the lack of snow round your way. I could parcel up a bit of our snowman in a polystyrene box and post it to you if you like? Oh, and Emma Watson? She copied ME, ack-CHEW-ly, and now SO HAVE YOU! Im flattered that so many bright young things should want to look like a drunk old slapper like me. s x PS I look like Eminem if I dont put product on my hair. Its not a good look.
from stepfordtart :
Aww, thats lovely! s x
from stepfordtart :
Superficial is good - Ive built my whole diary on it! Well, and a bit of unpleasant 'middle aged shagging', obviously! s x
from stepfordtart :
Hmm. Even with the 'Jooj Caveat', that comment still sounds really fucking rude. Sorry about that - wasnt meant to. s x
from stepfordtart :
Squeeeeee! Hoorah and Huzzah! I shall commence 'overlooking their shameful child labour policies' with immediate effect. A new frock is a new frock, after all! s x PS Actually, Ive always found their stuff really nicely made so its obviously something they pride themselves on. And its Jooj that put me onto their slightly unpleasant manufacturing thingies - I was blissfully unaware and wearing their stripy tights with impunity. Bloody teenagers and their social conscience! xx
from stepfordtart :
I think those trousers might belong to a bloke I used to go out with (Ive never been particularly picky!). Nice to see you updating and, no, Im pretty certain it wasnt L...although he does get about a bit! s x
from stepfordtart :
D'land people dont! They are desperate for human contact, even from old married ladies! Isnt there a proper grown up medical name for 'post wedding comedown'? s x
from lil-devil665 :
Huge congrats honey you looked so pretty, and the weather was amazing, food was good and i loved the tropical room for the reception. i still have the flowers from the bouquet in a beer glass on the table they have lasted really well, and its so pretty. How's the first week of married life been? x
from buffylass :
Huge congratulations, my love! xx
from zencelt :
Congrats! Absolutely gorgeous...
from stepfordtart :
You look absolutely beautiful (and Supermoo scrubbed up OK too!). Many congratulations. s x
from theswordsman :
Congratulations! You made a lovely bride. Now is it Mr. & Mrs., or Dr. & Mr.?
from strawberrri :
that's wonderful and you look so gorgeous. massive congrats :) xxx
from stepfordtart :
Yay! Im the first to say CONGRATULATIONS! May your lives together be all that you wish they could be. s x
from stepfordtart :
I think I was doing your 'being excited' for you - I thought you might be a bit busy! Here! *throws huge bucket of excitement* You can have it back now. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! s x
from buffylass :
Cheer up, A&E will get better! It will, won't it?! xx
from stepfordtart :
Its perfectly normal to feel like that. From what Ive seen and heard, everything will be wonderful. Dont forget to breathe and remember that its OK to say 'No. I dont want that' to anything you arent happy about. Everyone else can go fuck 'emselves. s x
from onlyemma :
I love you so much. Don't worry about anything to do with the wedding, it'll be amazing! I'm so excited, and we'll (try our very best to, if she's not too intimidating) make sure the hair lady doesn't ruin anything. And if you're worrying that no one will dance at the reception, I will make it my duty to get up and dance first. Yes, me and my cardboard hips.
from stepfordtart :
Awww! Officially TOO cute! Never heard of 'pre-wedding' pics before but they're just LOVELY! s x
from stepfordtart :
need some help with that? s x
from strawberrri :
thank you. my friends (internet and non!) are being great, so i'm keeping myself busy. men behaving badly dvds also seem to be helping oddly! x
from stepfordtart :
Its perfectly fine when cold (especially eaten direct from the dish, at midnight, leaning against the open fridge door, when drunk). Nice with a few buttered new potatoes and a bit of salad. It generally firms up a bit when cold so it does cut out alright. on separate note, just had to go to AMU for emergency bloodtest. Consultant said potassium levels WELL over 6. Surprised I wasnt dead. Had test. 4. Contaminated previous test results, much? Good luck with the tart s x
from stepfordtart :
Yeah, I was kicking myself when I watched it back! Could do the mushroom tart thingy - would have to cut it down a bit unless you want a thirteen part box set, tho! s x
from stepfordtart :
Dont stick em up your nose - that wont do your sinuses any good. s x
from blighty :
We are torturing our 13 year old - he has been banned from tv this weekend, which means of course, no X factor! Oh NO. I am the meanest mum...
from blighty :
I couldn't actually watch it all. Too horrific.
from stepfordtart :
As mummie to a juniorgoth it kind of was a bit of a choker for me, too. s x
from blighty :
Sorry, forgot to say that German swimmer is from Ludwigshaven (but he knows how to spell it). I think Ben and Sam make their first forays into the exchange next summer.
from blighty :
Great pics of NY - looks like non-stop fun.
from blighty :
Howdy. Hope you don't mind - I surfed over to you from stepfordtart - and I agree with her - 25 is much better than 40++ (I'm in denial).
from stepfordtart :
SQUEEE! Sounds better than Ls paltry efforts. Youz marrying the right man! Yay! s x
from stepfordtart :
Not dying in a big explodey fireball is always good. NY is da bomb isnt it?! We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria when we went and it was awesomeness personified. Happy happy happy birthday to you (and 25 is a fuck site better than 43, lemme tellya!). s x
from buffylass :
Yay well done! x
from buffylass :
Thankyou! I've got a feeling not... I'd send them to my hotmail account to be safe. There's always a risk they'll be filtered into my junk mail, but I try and check through it regularly xx

Go for it. And thanks for reminding me to watch the movie again. Things are awfully gray lately. Take care.
from stepfordtart :
Yay indeed! Dont forget to keep telling yourself its supposed to be enjoyable and, if its not, do something else! s x
from stepfordtart :
Make a big long list of stuff still to do. Highlight the things that REALLY wouldnt change things if they didnt happen (colour coordinated napkins, realease of 50 doves, etc etc). Do the other, non-highlighted, stuff first. So says me, master of two of my own weddings and countless others on behalf of disorganised and panicky friends! s x
from stepfordtart :
Gerbera (and germini - the small ones) are year-round flowers, you wont have any trouble getting those. There's so many varieties, you could pretty much choose whatever colour you like and there'll be a pretty close match. You might struggle a bit with the hibiscus tho as my book says thats more available at the end of the year. Its worth asking as your florist may well be able to get it or, if not, could probably suggest an alternative. Hope that helps! s x

That was my first test - the previous diagram was pre-emptive!

Nah, this is his Preston joke, told on the bloody radio, with all of them laughing so much they were nearly crying. Two deaf and dumb blokes in a pub. First deaf and dumb bloke: Landlord, what's that music? Landlord: It's country and western Second deaf and dumb bloke: What's that music? First deaf and dumb bloke: Its some cunt from Preston. I kid you not. xxx
from buffylass :
Ugh, it's the most hideous of all the hideous things. I don't know why I willingly pay so much money for something that I don't even want!
from badwillow :
Always nice to randomly bump into another TYG! :)
from annanotbob :
Did you hear his Preston joke?
from stepfordtart :
Oh, thank God! I thought it was just me feeling really rather bereft at the thought of no Tel in the mornings. I was starting to feel just a teensy bit tragic but now that you've 'come out' (and are significantly younger than me) I can feel justified in my wailing and gnashing of teeth. Its just too awful to contemplate, isnt it! *shakes head in disbelief*. s x
from stepfordtart :
Its "pointy bracket" S "pointy bracket"! Fucking hell, I couldnt sound ANY stupider, could I? Trouble is, if I actually type the symbol, D'land gets all pissy and doesnt show it properly. Am assuming that, if you already know how to do bold, italics and underline, you will know exactly what I mean! s x
from smashthegas :
Its cool dear, I didnt think ya were ignoring me LOL. In working up to it though, don't expect too much, I'm not THAT special, and you might be disappointed and tell me to eff off hehe. Smashx
from portlypete :
Oops. On reflection, a bit harsh. I probably blame the NHS system (added slander, I'm afraid), more than the consultant here. The patient was supposed to have an MRI scan but never did (hmm, wonder why). The Doc told her she could go back to work even though she was in excrutiating pain and could hardly walk. A second opinion - and a scan - showed two vertebrae had crumbled away and there was a swelling of the spinal cord. Consultant number two reckoned she could have been paralysed at any time. Kind of colours one's judgement. I know 99 percent of you do a very good job, work long hours and aren't bastards at all, but from now on, I don't intend to take two Aspirin and keep quiet.
from annanotbob :
Hello sweetie, I can vouch for Smashie too - he's much nicer than you'd think from reading his diary and gives the very best hugs in the whole world. But I came here to say hi and to say well done and thank you to you and all the others working in our fabulous NHS which is being shockingly slandered these days. xx
from smashthegas :
Hey darling! I'm back! Was thinkin it's kinda dumb we live in the same city and ain't met, what ya say to a drinkie sometime, ya can bring Supermoo, hehe. Stepfie - who I see has complimented my photo taking in her previous note LOL - first met me in my home city and canv ouch for the fact I'm not a axe wielding thug (just a normal thug LOL) wondered if ya would be up for it. No offence taken if not. Hope ya cool. Smash xx
from stepfordtart :
Just get a few really nicely composed ones and get therest from fiends and family. The best one of me is the one smashthegas took of me looking over my shoulder outside the church. 1st time around we spent a fortune on photos and they all looked stiff and unnatural. When I married L we didnt bother at all with the official stuff and we still got some really great ones. Why not have a nice 'portrait' one of you and Supermoo and spend the rest of the money on something else? s x
from theswordsman :
Some times over here, they have the professional take just the main ones, and put disposable cameras on the tables at the reception for the guests to fill up. Could be a way to get quality and quantity both?

from stepfordtart :
Aha! Bride Boredom! It gets worse, if anything! The only way I could deal with it is to think "well, once I've gone through this traumatic tedious pain in the arse, I can get to the REAL FUN bit. Being MARRIED!". No, Im not taking the piss. BEING married is a fuck sight better than GETTING married. s x
from theswordsman :
A friend linked to this on FB because it's s from her city, but I thought of you when I watched it. Maybe with a Latin theme? Have a great weekend. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-94JhLEiN0
from stepfordtart :
It was fuly booked here. Jooj is mighty pissed that ANYONE IN THE WORLD has seen it before she does. I suggested we all go see it at the weekend and L said "Oh. I'd rather see Ice Age 3. The 3D one" and looked at us, all hopeful. Ive never seen my two daughters look more scornful. s x
from stepfordtart :
Ooh, ta for the link! Dont remember seeing anything about it on the news...oh, hang on, I dont watch the news. Ok, I dont remember it being mentioned on the 2 mintes of news I listen to on the radio on the way to work. Damn Terry Wogan, he misses all the good stuff! s x
from stepfordtart :
Golly! How exciting! I assume you mean crane as in big metally thingy for lifting heavy stuff, rather than crane as in gangly legged bird with long pointy beak. Or crane as in Andy (although you might be too young for that particular pathetically unfunny joke). s x
from stepfordtart :
I'd leave the procrastinating til later if I were you. s x
from stepfordtart :
No, you dont have to have one. Unless you want one. Dont worry, you will be centre of attention anyways, so where you're sat wont make any difference. And if your dad stands up to make a speech, everyone will hear him anyway. Revisit, and do what will make YOU (and Mario) happy. If you're happy, it will show and everyone else will be happy too. s x
from stepfordtart :
Rincon. Deffo. Have the wedding you WANT rather than the 'package tour'. Just my opinion - you're welcome to tell me to fuck off. s x
from stepfordtart :
Mitchum! Has been my saviour in TOO many scary board meetings! s x
from stepfordtart :
You might need to expand on that a bit,dear, it just sounds TOOOO interesting! Anything taht can make one mad enough to not finish dinner definitely needs retelling! s x
from onlyemma :
I do very much love you. x
from buffylass :
Have managed to now survive the hen do and the wedding. I am on fire! xx
from stepfordtart :
FORTY QUID! Actually, Im given to understand (by most of my female friends) that's quite reasonable. Anne Marie pays 130 for trim and highlights touch-up. Every five weeks. *gulp* Mine is fifteen quid and I bitch about THAT! s x

Night shifts suck. Nearly as much as chamomile tea! s x

A Mock Test? I'd have ACED that, Im brilliant at mocking. I can reduce people to tears with my excellent mocking skills. You, on the other hand, must clearly try harder. ; ) s x

I jumped up and down and clapped a little bit for you, too! s x
from stepfordtart :
And many more SQUEEEEs right back atcha. s x
from stepfordtart :
Dont know how long you've lived in Liverpool, but it might be worth asking Smashiepoos if he knows of any venues that perhaps you hadnt thought of? Also, in light of recent events, I'll burn a disc of wedding images for you - if you end up needing it at least I can send it, even if I dont work there any more. s x
from strawberrri :
hehe thanks. i still keep randomly bursting into fits of giggles thinking about it. woo for the wedding, that's wonderful :)
from stepfordtart :
Oooh! Thanks for the Big-Up, dear! Dont read any more of my crap, its not good for you! s x
from stepfordtart :
Breathe! Breathe ferchristsake woman! Woah. Thought we'd lost you there for a minute. Organising a wedding (and assorted adjoining celebrations) isnt tricky, its just a bit time-consuming. There's too much to go through here but if you really do want some ideas and some impartial commenting/advice, you're welcome to email me (stepfordtartATdiarylandDOTcom) as its still very fresh in my mind and I'd be happy to pass on any tips or tricks I picked up (like getting Smashiepoos to help ice your cakes!). seriously, I will help you in any way you think I could help. I love a good 'organise', me! s x
from smashthegas :
Proposed!! SQUEEEEE!!! Congratulations!!!! *hugzzzzz*** Smashxxx PS - Returning to normal mode now. *growlz* See? Heh.

Congratulations, I'm really happy for you both. And it sounds like he did a really nice job of it, as well. Take care.

Is it the 'bun and butter' thats been on the telly recently? Cant remember what they're advertising - Sainsburys? If so, will you let me know how it turns/turned out? thanks everso - and Happy Easter! s x
from buffylass :
I really want to buy her something beyond whorey, but I don't think I dare as her scary mother will be there when she unwraps it. Could just be all too cringey xx
from strawberrri :
ahh give the ting tings a bit more time...surprisingly good!
from smashthegas :
When you're next in the car, try a reverse drop. That's where you go in reverse as fast as is comfortable, then slam the gear into first and floor it. It's not a particularly impressive maneouvre in mashin circles but it involves lots of tyre screeching and a bit of smoke (depending on the car, of course) and is good fun *grinz* Smashxxx
from buffylass :
Argh, you're making me feel guilty about the fact that I've not gotten around to finishing learning how to drive still, after starting about a billion years ago.
from strawberrri :
the vintage shoes would go really good with shorts (in teh summer) or pedal pushers. pumps are great with most clothes, but you don't get a lot of support in the sole so not good for walking very far!
from stepfordtart :
*psst* dont tell anyone, cos I am, like, old and jolly respectable and all that, but Id like to have a go at that too. s x
from stepfordtart :
No smashie I didnt mean you when I said 'morons who drive', but I do mean you now Im singing "Youre so vain, I bet you think this comment's about you". Anyway, You might get some foreigners coming on here and making questiony faces cos flapjacks over there arent the same as flapjacks over here. Just sayin'. s x
from theswordsman :
It never even crossed my mind that you may have "accidentally" unplugged the monitor;) Driving is the best!
from smashthegas :
I think Stepfie is referring to me when she mentions morons who drive. And how about I come belly dancing with you? Hmm. Perhaps not. heh. Smashxxx
from stepfordtart :
I read that as "And pie..", which seems a lot more sensible. Here's my take on driving lessons: Think how many truly moronic people you know who can already do it......Got some? Good. Now, how hard can it REALLY be if THEY can do it? s x
from stepfordtart :
Shame...cos they ROCK! s x
from smashthegas :
Have you tried chilli&chocolate? They are DISGUSTING. Like salted crisps doused in coca powder. You know when you would dip your finger in cocoa powder as a kid and you get that horrible dry powdery taste that tastes nothing like chocolate and you end up disappointed? Thass what they are like!
from stepfordtart :
I just pretended I was having an orgasm and my feet DID go a bit pointy, so there might be something in that. If I have a real one later on (L's gone out)I'll be sure to check my feet - all in the name of research. Oh, and the Cajun squirrel, with no squirrel in the ingredients? You know what?! There's no baby in Baby Lotion either. I feel cheated. s x
from stepfordtart :
Ace! Dad's everywhere shall be singing your praises. s x
from annanotbob :
Hahaha!!! Thanks - that's made my day! xx
from stepfordtart :
I tested your theory on L and Anne Marie and we all agree. s x
from annanotbob :
Hello and thanks to you likewise. It was the combination in your profile of 'dad-dancing' and Ruben Blades that hooked me in x
from stepfordtart :
"soggy snap"? Shouldn't that be "sugar squodge"? Arent they just fucking HORRIBLE when they're like that - one minute they're 'Mmm, yummy, tasty, healthy' and then two seconds longer in the pan and theyre completely ruined. The little green bastards. s x
from stepfordtart :
Oooh! Niiiice! Although, how you can resist backcombing the longer front bits into a giant Paula Yates-esque sprouting tangle I'll never know. Oh, hang on. Im confusing your (very nice)hair with my own (stupid) hair. s x
from stepfordtart :
OMFG, that one drives me absolutely mental! Im all "HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE??????". And people who say 'pacific' when they mean 'specific' should be shot. s x
from smashthegas :
I made the slither/sliver mistake in one of my entries not so long back... not that long ago. I didn't go back and correct it either... obviously I'm thick:( hehe
from buffylass :
I should think you'll be fine - the doctors spent forever investigating mine and found absolutely nothing. As far as I can tell, as long as you don't have any pain or feel dizzy when them then there's nothing to worry about. You could always take a 10mg beta-blocker when they're bothering you, that's what I do. Or maybe get an ECG done to check it's not Long QT Syndrome xx
from buffylass :
Aww I get the ectopic beats too! Don't worry, I haven't had a ventricular fib yet... xx
from stepfordtart :
A poo ward?! Oh, there's just NO NEED! Mind you, when I was so v v ill with UC and shitting blood through the eye of a needle every 20 minutes, I would have welcomed sharing a ward with other likeminded souls. As it was I was on my own and EVERYONE knew it was me! s x
from smashthegas :
So why did you go into medicine then? (You said you made no secret about why you did but perhaps I missed it.) heh. Smashxxx

Great pics. Take care. John

Par-up-a-pum-pum. I made my kids nearly late for school by forcing them to listen to that in my car and not letting them out til it had finished. s x

HAHAHAHA! I really did LOL at that one. You pillock. s x
from stepfordtart :
Night! s x
from strawberrri :
*waves!* sorry i should have said hello when i added you. seen you around on holly's notespage and stuff. i wanted to add some new blood so to speak to my buddy list and your diary's great :)
from stepfordtart :
Before me and L finally got married, we had friends who had met, married and spilt up in less time than we'd known each other. There's no need to rush. When the time's right, girl, when the time's right. We both SWORE 'never again' if its any consolation after making a bit of a lash up it in our respective first attempts. s x
from stepfordtart :
Just read your note. Jooj has had the jab and, yes, its a loop excision they're doing on me. Appreciate your note - thanks a lot. And I do know about the 'broomsticks' but some moustachiod harpy at my doctors surgery did actually say that stuff to me. She was just jealous, I think! s x
from stepfordtart :
I worked with a bloke who had breast cancer. Sounds odd, doesnt it - like it should be a 'girls only' type thing. When he tld everyone at work that he had it, most thought he was taking the piss. He had treatment and is now AOK, as far as I know. Unfortunately, they didnt remove his Total Wanker-ness along with the cancer, but then, he'd had THAT all his life, I think. s x
from stepfordtart :
Ha! You know you blew it with that last sentence, dont you? Funnily enough, down here on the coast, Im thought of as posh, too, but my only scouse friend (smashiepoos)thinks I talk like a farmer. First time I talked to his mum on the phone I said she sounded like Sonia! I tried to think of something amusing to say about SHOs (in the styleee of my previous 'Dr DRE' jokes) but I just keep coming up with disco lyrics ('Get up, stand up, strut your funky stuff, SHO nuff!'). Rubbish. Apologies. s x
from stepfordtart :
Oooch. That sucks. Have a ((hug)). s x
from theswordsman :
My sister called me on Valentines Day a few years back and announced that she was engaged, and that she'd just received the engagement ring her fiance had FedExed from where he lived, 800 miles away. I got in the car and drove 45 minutes to give her a hug, just because I thought she should have one from somebody. Good luck.
from stepfordtart :
Yayyyyy! Piiiiiics! C'on, c'mon, hurry up! s x
from theswordsman :
Sorry about that. He's pretty flirtatious. If you want, you can click where it says "more" and get a steak you can feed him. And yeah, Irah is pretty excellent looking. I've got about fifty different outdoor pictures of her. Oddly enough, the closeup of her face and eyes is the best one. Take care.
from buffylass :
Happy birthday! Alas, also for yesterday xx
from stepfordtart :
Maybe you should stuff the capacious jumper with them - like tramps used to do with kapok - you'd be snuggly warm in no time! s x
from smashthegas :
It was your birthday? When? I miss an entry? And you said boobs. Heh. Smashxxx
from stepfordtart :
Was the book MADE from chocolate?! Coooooool! Wha'? Oh. Oh, I see. *looks sheepish* s x
from theswordsman :
Happy Birthday! I'm also because you got to mention boobs, and the other day, Holly mentioned boobs a lot, and now I want to do a boobs entry but don't think I can get away with it. Maybe I'll start a boobs blog:)? Have a great week.
from stepfordtart :
"party zone"! *snigger*. Thats great and Im SO stealing it! That saliva thingy is WEIRD - I never heard of anything like that before and Im WELL clever *ahem*. Hope you have a spiffing birthday, lets face it, any occasion which contains fireworks as an integral part is always gonna be good. s x
from stepfordtart :
I want to get one done at the top of my ear but Ive got mutant pixie ears and I think it would look crap. I hate getting my hair cut, I always think that they're thinking "she's old, it wont matter what we do cos she's just someone's mum". Then they try to make me look like Gloria Hunniford. Bastards. s x
from stepfordtart :
Chuck it in the freezer and do it when you've got more time - thats what Ive done! s x
from stepfordtart :
No, its not that. Its cos your face is purple. Can you post the recipe for that chocolatey gorgeousness (or a link, if its web-able)? s x
from smashthegas :
You don't smile cos you are DR. EVIL BABE!!!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!! Or...
from theswordsman :
Thanks. On my list of goals for a year from now, I'll add a significant other and a fresh pumpkin.
from theswordsman :
Here it usually starts as a can of Libby's Pumpkin Pie Filling. I think my Aunt Anne used to make it from scratch, but that's risky because it can taste more like a vegetable than a treat. But you HAVE to put whipped cream or Cool Whip on the top. It's tradition. Have a great week.
from theswordsman :
Hey Kirsty. Sorry your neck is hurt again. But I'm totally impressed that you made pumpkin pie! Ten years ago we had to have classes on our Thanksgiving, as it wasn't a British holiday. But that night we had a formal dinner with the Meet-A-Family locals as our guests. The Principal's wife went to a lot of trouble having Harrad's order in pumpkin pie filling so we could all have a sliver. The older locals at my table looked pretty chocked to see pumpkin in a pie. I guess you do it because you're so International and stuff. Hope you feel better.
from stepfordtart :
Cool! L thinks he know me voy but we'll google them and have a listen. s x PS Pumpkin pie makes LOADS of things better!
from stepfordtart :
which song? Geetar dudes need to know! s x
from theswordsman :
Hey Kirsty. People can't learn to write the way Emma does. I've written tons every single day for more than five years, and if I spent a week on something it wouldn't compare to what she could write with an eyeliner on a grocery bag on a bus ride home. You're an intelligent, interesting woman who shares her life with us. That's plenty. I hope your neck feels better soon.
from stepfordtart :
There's nothing wrong with your writing, you daft bat. Otherwise why would people like The Fabulous Me be reading it? s x
from buffylass :
Oh God, see I'm really quite worried that it's going to be an alcohol-free reception, which is surely the worst state of affairs for a reception EVER. The hen night's going to be touch and go too, as Becky doesn't drink and there'll be a lot of American evangelicals coming. Sigh. Oh, and glad you liked the video, even if I am being a prized twat in it. Would have replied to your note sooner but the Plague takes few prisoners xx
from stepfordtart :
I see EXACTLY what you mean! hahahaha! s x
from smashthegas :
Hey is there any way I can become an Assistant Obstetrics and Gynaecology dude? I do have umm... some experience... *grinz* Smashxxx PS I know, that was smutty.
from smashthegas :
Ignore Stepfie. Don't get one. THEY ARE EVIL THINGS!!! Smashxxx
from stepfordtart :
Get one. Then give it to your mum. Then you have to go round there and ask for it when you want to use it. It'll make you think twice about whether or not you really need it. You can set up a DD with your bank to pay the full balance at the end of each month if you're worried about missing a payment. Helpful? s x
from maliger :
Weather seems to act funny everywhere. Here in the central valley, California, U.S., last week was the first cool weather of autumn, it went from temps in the 90s to temps in the 70s in a week it seemed.
from smashthegas :
Haha, talk about karma! Stepfie just text me (if you've read her latest entry, you know she is in Blackpool for the weekend) and the comedian she saw last night is from... yup you guessed it! Maghull! Hahaa!! Have a great weekend! Smashxxx
from stepfordtart :
Hey. Have a big ((hug)). Oh, and permission to fart granted. s x
from smashthegas :
Don't worry dear, I haven't disappeared entirely, and I am still reading diaries as always! Nothing is wrong or anything, just with working so much and spending what little free time I have socialising I don't have much time to devote to diary-ing at the moment. I've stopped before for periods of time and always end up being dragged back so don't despair (!) I will probly be around again soon. And YAY for the end of night shifts. They suck lambananaballz! Smashxxx
from smashthegas :
It's disgraceful that doctors have to work nights, don't ya think? Heh. And tell Stepfie NOT to come to Merseyside for any reason. Last time she came here she got me very drunk against my will and made me laugh embarrassingly loudly in a music shop! Terrible... heh. Smashxxx
from stepfordtart :
Meh. I promise to not travel to Merseyside and get real sick for the duration of the week. There! Thats one less thing for you to worry about. s x
from stepfordtart :
Yep. And even those of us who arent Poolside appreciate every second of it. s xxxxxxxx
from stepfordtart :
Aww. RIP the Maghull bag lady. Im not a doctor but Im pretty sure solid poo-pooh isnt a cause of death....or did I read that bit a bit quick? s x
from smashthegas :
If you have read Stepfie's note, yeah she is referring to me. It's where I live LOL. Smashxxx
from stepfordtart :
Watch out for people from Maghull. They can be a bit funny. If you have to do lots of those bum pokey things, do you get to be Doctor Dre? Heeheehee, maybe thats where he got the name! s x
from stepfordtart :
haha! Thats put me in mind of The Bottom Inspectors (from Viz)! Do they give you a special Mac to wear when you're inspecting bottoms? s x
from buffylass :
I'm egotistically assuming that you want the password (!), it's mouse/love xx
from theswordsman :
I'd like to help with your problem but am having a problem picturing the situation. Photos would be a great help, even if they're just from a cell phone:) But in real life, she's doing it on purpose and the question is whether or not it's appropriate. If it's not, it's really up to her bosses or human resources to talk to her. That's the best I can do without pics. So, if that makes your Internet work, did you try any bizarre sequences that failed? It might make a good party game. I hope you got my email. Take care
from stepfordtart :
Does he say "morning Penfold" in the voice of Dangermouse? Otherwise, whats the point? Also, my friend Lee who wears specs but often forgets them, looks like penfold when he wears MY specs. I have been trying to get a photo of him for some time but he's been resisting. Valiantly. I shall endeavour to capture his likeness this very weekend. Can you tell Im a bit pissed? s x
from johnguinness :
No worries. And do you prefer having your own personal place to leave me notes? Also, I clicked on your name in the new entries list a bit ago but got the pizza and wine one again.
from buffylass :
Aww, well thankyou. There may very well be more, as it's helping me believe that I actually am good enough to play to other people, which can only be a good thing. And sorry I'm late with this, but I would have felt a little strange recieving the money too, but I think that you made the right choice xx
from stepfordtart :
Save the money up. Spend it on something cheerful. If it was my relative who had died I would want to say thank you to the people who had tried to not let that happen. Think of it as tips from the bereaved. s x
from theswordsman :
Sounds like if you don't take it, the funeral directors will just make more money. Why not set up a cookie jar or account or something where you can accumulate it, and when it gets to be a bit, go out and celebrate life? Most of us get through our lives without having to deal with corpses, and I imagine it can take its toll. It would be nice to build in a weekend break or holiday or something to recharge and enjoy yourself. Or get Sky Satellite. Take care.
from falabella :
Hmmm. That's one of those seemingly small decisions that could actually be choosing a path. Who does the money actually come from? If it's reimbursement for work that you did and the money comes from the government or a cremation service or something, there's certainly nothing wrong with taking it. If you feel more comfortable, you could pick some charity or cause or even medical research to donate it to. Sorry I can't be more help. Pink Nurse was an excellent guess.
from theswordsman :
It cracks me up when you call me Dude:) And you've picked the right one, although you're not impressed with her, and she does have a very nice curve/skirt cut. Take care.
from smashthegas :
Fook our government even manages to make death a chore. Yay for the civil service. Are you sick of those stupid lamb-bananas yet? I get the urge to shoot them every time I see them. Every time I turn around one of the fuckers is there. Heh. Hope you're good, dear! Smashxxx
from buffylass :
Ha, I don't even want that to be the case with me! Am still distraught about the badminton, though the massive gold rush of the weekend has dulled the pain somewhat. Yay coxless four!
from stepfordtart :
Me and L are totally in love with Stephen Fry. We even spent about an hour last night trying to decide what I'd cook if he ever came to dinner. We are saddoes. s x
from stepfordtart :
Yay you, indeed! A houseman once had FIVE goes at getting a transfusion needle-thingy in me. Both hands, both inner-elbows and then straight through the vein. At the time I thought he was a total twat. Now I think he may have been a little sleepy! s x
from stepfordtart :
So, if she's TB, does that make you BJ? Im sure there's plenty of people would rather have a BJ than TB! Just a thought. s x
from theswordsman :
Hi Kirtsy. Nice to see the daily entries. Are you planning to watch the Olympic fencing?
from stepfordtart :
Ha! If only ALL of life was like scrubs. s x
from stepfordtart :
Bloody hell. Fair play to you, it all sounds far too scary and real to me! Tomorrow's another day and all that. s x PS Yes, smash really IS my friend in RL, I suggest you go drinking with him immediately! hee hee. Actually, no, dont. You may never work again.
from smashthegas :
Lucky I was on an early. Apparently some twat crashed into the bridge at Sandhills. Gah!
from falabella :
Relax. I watched Grey's Anatomy, and it turns out the first year is spent drinking, and having sex in supply closets and things. Kidding. I'm sure you'll do great, and the patients are lucky to have you.
from smashthegas :
I think it was through a banner, did you put some of those up? Either that or it will have been off of someone elses diary. Dont owrry I'm not a psycho stalker or anything, ask stepfordtart, she knows me in RL hehe.

Hey! Thanks for the add (and the compliment!). I shall, naturally, return the favour and many congrats on the recent Offically Fabulous-ness. s x

Sorry, I'm still stunned that anyone makes it all the way through a single one. I'll do better at letting them accumulate. Have a great week.

Haha loved the piccy of you in front of the lambbanana! I work just down the road from the original one, but they've got those little ones EVERYWHERE. There's three outside our office and the place is always full of tourists taking pictures. Congratulations on your graduating! I'll be back to read more soon. Smashxxx

Hi Kirsty. Congratulations on finishing your undergrad work. Must be a day of mixed emotions for you, I'm guessing. I had your e-mail address back when we first talked about fencing, but it's gone, and the one here for you doesn't work. Would you please send it to me at theswordsman@diaryland.com? Have a great weekend. John
from theswordsman :
Hi Kirsty. The buddy lists all got messed up a couple of days ago. There was a news item about it, which oddly enough didn't light up the buddy list. I e-mailed Andrew before I noticed the note. The pictures of the apartment look really nice. You'll turn it into a home in no time. Cheers. John
from onlyemma :
I love you too xxxx P.S. Sorry for not texting you back the other day, I have absolutely no money. Not even 15p for a phonecall! xxx

Hey Kirsty. I was actually in Llandudno for a weekend back in the day. I think the hotel was named The Clarence or something - it was a few blocks from the beach. I ate with a couple of friends at the Tandoori restaurant up the street, did a bit of cheap gambling, went out for ice cream, had a few minutes at a dance club, and hung out at a pub, maybe called Rays, where all the locals drank Budweiser bottles and a guy named Rich Hughes played songs that he'd written that week. The good times of the weekend were actually on the road, though, with trips to Caernorfen Castle and Portmerion, etc. I really liked the country and would love to go back and fly fish and kayak and hike and stuff. Hope you have a great time as well. Cheers.
from theswordsman :
Hi Kirsty. I couldn't find your e-mail address so I can't send you an e-card, but I wanted to wish you Happy Holidays. I hope you get a nice relaxing break with family and friends and food. Take care.
from theswordsman :
Happy Birthday, Kirsty. I hope you're having a great one.
from theswordsman :
But there area other kinds of witches besides wicca and pagans. I've read Princes of Ireland and other books, and am aware that Christians came and took over holidays and rewrote history and things - that's a different deal. Here's an excerpted quote I found with a quick Google. "In his book The Black Arts (Pan Books Ltd. 1967.), Richard Cavendish outlines the proceedings of the witches sabbath. Commencing with the witches paying homage to the Devil. The witches would light a fire whilst the Devil was seated upon a throne in the form of either a goat, representing Satan himself, or a dog, which may have been connected with the dark Goddess - the dog being one of the sacred animals of Hekate - rather than with Satan himself. The witches would then approach and adore the Devil, though their approach would be in a manner foreign to normal men, such as walking crab-like or with their backs turned to him. After this 'came the offering of the candles to the Devil and the obscene kiss.'(7) where the witch kisses the Devils behind. Following the obscene kiss, initiation, baptism or marriage would occur followed by the feast and the orgy which concluded the witches sabbath." Take care.

from theswordsman :
Thanks for taking the survey. I remember sopping at some place on the way home from Edinburgh so we could see a bit of Hadrian's Wall and they had the floor plan of the Roman fortress. They had the bit about running water for the flushing. The Romans did know their stuff when it came to water/baths/etc. Are the ants used to bite the incision shut instead of sutures or stitches or whatever? I seem to recall something about them biting and then you pop off their heads or something. Could just be something we did late night in a bar. Take care. John
from theswordsman :
Hey Kirsty. You're not at all rubbish, unless you refuse to take my survey, then... I linked to it a couple of days ago. Take care. John
from theswordsman :
Thank..you
from onlyemma :
No, Kirstwa (how do you spell that?). I didn't go and see Vicki instead of you, I wrote that part of the entry about 2 weeks ago and just left it because I couldn't be bothered anymore. I thought, "no one will ever know!", forgetting that obviously you would :P I can't even remember what I did last weekend! I do love you, silly billy xxxxxxxxxx
from theswordsman :
Thank you. He reminds me of the Wildside Walks at the Zoo. Sorry I deleted all of my old entries again - I keep meaning to leave at least a few out there. Have a great weekend. John

I know. We don't even get to see them finish school or anything. It's a shame they couldn't fight Voldemort in their gap year.

Hi Kirsty, It's a shame you can't make it, but it's cool you were invited. Good luck with finals. John
from onlyemma :
alright whingey :P Sorry for complaining then, I know, I know... I miss stuff out as well. It's only because I can never do my time with you any justice, you know I'm better at saying how bored I am. I love and miss you so much! xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
from onlyemma :
*shakes head* you spent two days with us! Why didn't you write about it!? Glad to see you're writing again though, I've missed your entries. Love you loads and loads, thank you for yesterday and today! We'll have to have a Cold Case marathon and I'll bring you another banana bread as we scoffed most of your last one xxxx
from johnguinness :
I can't believe that worked. But thank you. Congrats on the upcoming anniversary. And Surgery sounds interesting - I know all about it from Grey's Anatomy, so when you have free time you can amuse yourself by guessing who's sleeping with who. It's best to knock on the door or clear your throat before entering supply closets as well. Take care. John
from johnguinness :
Hi Kirsty. I'm sure all of us would love to see an update about how everything is going. I imagine this is a pretty hectic time for school, but I hope you're not letting your epee gather rust. I don't know if you've still been reading me from time to time or not, but I've had to lock up recently after some craziness presented itself. I didn't want to shut you out if you have been reading, but I'm not posting the info anywhere. Holly has it, or if you still have my e-mail address from our fencing discussion, you could e-mail me for it. I hope things are great, but I really would love to hear what form that greatness is taking these days. Cheers. John
from johnguinness :
Hey Kirsty. I've decided to abandon the whole Internet thing, and wanted to say a proper goodbye. I wish you and Mario all the happiness in the world. You'll make a brilliant doctor. Never abandon the sword. Cheers. John

Belated Happy Birthday! John

I missed you! Which reminds me, are you fencing at Sheffield sometime this year by any chance? xx

I hope your cold goes away soon. Enjoy your day off. John

That's just it, I think they're maybe helping a little with the brain fog, and it feels nice just to be taking *something* so that I feel like I'm treating it in a big placeboey way. I just really want a pill to help with the fatigue, and unfortunately that's the one symptom I don't think I can't get any help for xxx

Ha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has the occassional rampant lesbian dream xx

Heh cheers, it was unfortunately reat sweaty and gross. Someone should make the robes white or something. And feel free to have the sodding SEH with my blessing. Hope Panama's not too hot today, you have all my sympathy xx
from johnguinness :
How sad is that? I just answered the exercise question and ignored Miss Panama. I promise I won't ignore her Sunday night.
from johnguinness :
Hi Kirsty. It sounds like you're having a great experience. I hope the burn doesn't give you too much discomfort. Elliptical trainers are designed to simulate running without the pounding and joint pressure. You stand on individual pedals that move around in an elliptical motion, and there are bars attached for you to hold onto so that your arms work with it as well. It's cooler than I described, and some very fit women use them as part of their regimen. Take care. John

Good Luck! Glad you arrived safely. Have a great time and don't worry about a few little "faux pas", they are inevitable, trust me. My friend Holly spent the first couple of weeks in Spain telling people in restaurants that she was a vegetable (instead of vegetarian). At least you are with people you know, that always helps. At first time will drag, but the last few weeks will fly by and you will wonder where all the time went. Don't forget to enjoy yourself because you will learn the language better if you do. Take care Meg XXXX

sorry your exam didn't go too well, but I'm sure you did fantastically because you always do. Even if you don't get the highest marks you'll still do brilliantly Kirst. You're destined for a career in medicine! You're a wonderful and very pretty walking medical dictionary. Hope you're ok and not feeling too bad, love you loads xxxxx
from buffylass :
Ohh yeah, good point... I was thinking of Fluopiridine or something. Was the exam a bit of a bastard? x
from buffylass :
Aww bless you, that was really sweet! Don't worry, I don't think I'm going to stop writing any time soon... I'm just a little worried that once I leave Uni and get a job my entries (life) might get a little on the dull side. But I'm not all left yet, so it's just fine. And I hate to admit it, but I too know what Fluoxetine is... it's a cancer drug that blocks CDK-cyclin activation or something, yeah? And my housemate's on Mefanamic acid for period pain, so I'm guessing it's a smooth muscle relaxor maybe xx
from theswordsman :
Congratulations!

Hey Kirst, just wanted to say hope you got your essay done in time and managed to get a bit of sleep too xx
from onlyemma :
Yep you're definitely right, they usually play stuff from the Grease soundstrack or Dirty Dancing. Blah. Though I can't believe they didn't play Hanson! The DJ probably chickened out, he looked like a bit of a wimp. Hope you're ok. I'll send you some pics or put some up when I get some. Love you loads xxxx

Thankfully it's nothing neurological or CNSy, so all the kids have stopped worrying :) Well done for winning the fencing award... I would've left a note when you wrote about it but reading's currently proving a little tricky. And I've just noticed that the note I thought I sent you over Easter hasn't posted - it originally said something along the lines of sorry that I didn't have time to go up to Liverpool, but the stuppid LQT thing took over my entire existance over Easter x

Thank you so much for your note Kirst. It's always lovely to get a note from you and it made me very happy. Hope your bum bruises get better soon. Love you. Em xxx
from onlyemma :
aah, so that's John.
from theswordsman :
Hi Kirsty. Again, I wasn't being the slightest bit critical. You said that maybe you were boring, and you're not. I read you every time you post. Have a great weekend. John
from theswordsman :
And I would have responded sooner, but I was waiting for another "John" to come forward, just in case. Cheers
from theswordsman :
Yes, who is this John person??? Hi Kirsty. I just checked your "older entries." You posted five times in February and six in January. It doesn't give people a chance to feel like they're really a part of your life. I once had a reader describe me in her profile by saying, "he updates more often than I breathe." As far as the number of people thing goes, early last summer I had maybe nine people list me as a buddy. I was always hitting the "recently updated list" to find new diaries to read. I'd find some I really enjoyed, like Hollys, and add them. Eventually they would investigate, and some would succumb to my charms (I just wrote that because I know she'll read it and let out a harrumph). When the hurricane hit, and Andrew offered to donate the money from banner sales to hurricane relief, I ran a ton of banners. Hundreds of people stopped by. Most turned and ran. I had one person tell me that they had clicked on six different banners of mine and finally decided to try reading my damned diary. Some people stayed. Some of those have since left diaryland. Others have apparently tired of me. But I cherish the people who stayed. I might try banners again if I ever start doing something interesting. But I won't do it while I'm busy with school, because I won't be able to post as often. People like to turn on their computer at a certain time of the day and check in on what their buddies are up to. Please understand that nothing I've said is meant to be critical in any way. Holly and I know each other so well that if she doesn't post for a day, I'll be sad, and if she misses three in a row, I'll have someone knocking on her damned door. She knows that. With six entries a month, I'll never know you that way. Good luck with the fencing. Take care. John [Please feel free to delete this novelette].
from onlyemma :
oh, and who is John?
from onlyemma :
I second what Hol said (though I'm referring to sounding like a fool in my own diary). Anyway Kirst, LOOK! Both me and Holly have signed your guestbook within hours of you posting you last entry (well, 2 days) so that is evidence enough that at least 2 people follow your diary regularly. And yes, I even manage to follow the bits about fencing. You're my very favourite women's Fencing Captain :) love you! xxx
from buffylass :
Ohh I wouldn't say that necessarily. I think it's just that I update ridiculously often, and that I also sound like a complete fool whenever I do write.
from buffylass :
Heh I don't know if reminding people of really shiny cars is a good thing or a bad thing.
from theswordsman :
Hi Kirsty. Thanks. I've got the gold membership as theswordsman, so I could just move stuff over there or to Yahoo, but it's a question of time. I didn't have a photo editor when I first did the pictures, and the originals were too large for diaryland, so I uploaded them to Yahoo, they made them very small, and I used those. With this newer hand-me-down computer from my brother, I can make them a more reasonable size. I just e-mailed the Director of my program about starting my schooling with the next course in February so I can do it properly. Based on the paperwork I finally received last night, I'm not supposed to have set foot in a classroom yet anyway. Plus I can find out for sure about the loan and just focus on school. Have a great weekend. John
from buffylass :
Thankyou! My next exam's on ion channels, and will probably not go as well as the first two. Do you know when you're playing Sheffield fencing-wise yet?
from buffylass :
Heh thankyou, you are indeed very lovely x
from buffylass :
Ohh it hasn't actually been written yet, but when it is it'll be on the significance of the VAPB gene in ALS/MS. My god, 4 hours is just hardcore... my 90 minutes pales in comparison.
from theswordsman :
Sorry - I forgot for a moment just how much of a stud I really am - Maestro awarded me one of his salle patches for my jacket so that everyone knows I'm a student of his. Back away from the computer before you begin bowing. Take care. John
from theswordsman :
If you're into the scientific aspects of fencing, Rudy Volkmann is you man. A lot of people by his book just for the bits about equipment maintenance. But there's lots of stuff in there that could make anyone a better fencer.
from theswordsman :
I guess you just read what I wrote about fencing yourself? Return salute. Coincidentally enough, I just received a return e-mail from the Maestro today, which made me come up with another resolution and a lot of what I'm writing about tonight. Did you get The Art & Science or The Inner Game? At one point I had pretty much both of them memorised. Cheers. John
from theswordsman :
Have you ever read Rudy Volkmann's Big Book of Fencing? It's out under the French title as well. It's got tons of stuff in it for sport fencers. Dr. Volkmann is the guy who designed a popular fencing dummy - he built one for me. He's a very smart professor, and there was tons of strategy in the book. Cheers. John

You're studying Spanish now because you want to go to Panama with your "novio"? Baillamos chica caliente. Juan

from buffylass :
Oh bless you, dripping walls sounds incredibly depressing. Maybe it'll be vaguely better when it's summer? Hope your holiday is bon, I can't wait to get home now actually xx
from theswordsman :
Hi Kirsty. I just did a google search on "diaryland fencing" and came across your interview as team captain. Forgive me for not noticing before, but you're quite gorgeous. Happy Holidays. John
from theswordsman :
It's actually not too far off. We'd start by toasting maybe five loaves of bread and any hamburger & hotdog buns we had around, then breaking them into bits. I'd forgotten the eggs, but I think there were some of those, and probably a stick of butter set on the top before baking. The other stuff all went through the grinder - celery, onions, apples, the boiled giblets from the turkey, and eventually we decided we liked more meat in so she'd cook some hamburger or sausage and toss that in. I think it was just sage, salt, pepper, and maybe a tiny bit of sugar (?) for seasoning. Now that I've written that, it's off to my Rice Krispies for breakfast. Cheers. John
from theswordsman :
Hi. I don't recall if the stuffing was bad or not. I'm used to having heaping piles of it with gravy for every meal for four days, and for that meal it was one small ball of something, origin and ingredients unknown. My mother had amazing dressing made from loaves of toasted white bread, ground up turkey giblets and some other cooked meats, celery, broth, apples, and some other things. Aunt Anne had a moister version with raisins that was also good. I don't know how other stuffings are made, but I haven't tasted a good version in eight years. Take care. John
from buffylass :
Malfoy is indeed growing up to be quite yummy. The trouble with Hermionie is that Emma Watson is too pretty for the character, and so the transformation isn't as striking as it is in the book.

from buffylass :
Happy birthday! xx

Yeah, I remember Em mentioning it, although I hardly speak to her now. And you're right, it does seem to have done more good than counselling ever did. If you're in Sheffield for fencing then definately let me know - my number's 07966743721, and we'll meet up for a drink.

diablogem (a very sweet person) has another diary I can't recall right now where she has free templates. I mentioned fencing once and she tossed one together. I'm sure you could replace that picture with another if you like.
from theswordsman :
Hi. Thanks for the note. I switched templates on a whim last week and the new one came set up with the writing on the left. I played with it just a bit yesterday to center things a bit. I'll tweak it more when I have time. Nope, I'm from a small town near St. Louis. I show up in statcounters as ameritech and probably Belleville Illinois. Did you know any fencers from Essex? My buddy Jonathan just graduated this year, and he took his life the Wednesday before last. Take care. John
