Bonjour, Parlez-vous Franglais?

You can’t run away from your problems. I mean, sure – you can run away from things like the fuckwits at the DWP or the various bailiffs, but real troubles, REAL troubles. They’re the things that sit heavily in your heart and mind. They press upon your soul. You carry them with you always and you can’t run away from them. Read more…

A copy and pasting of some tweets I did the other night. When I was a kid, I would have a bath and when it came to washing my hair I would take a lid and pour tiny bits of EVERY shampoo, soap, conditioner, gel and hair product within reach. I even managed a little bit of dye once. The theory was, if this stuff was supposed to be good for your hair, then ALL OF IT TOGETHER would be EXCELLENT for your hair!
With this sort of mindset already in place, having an emotional trough night as well as being besieged by aches, pains, dodgy sinus troubles, sore throats, etc etc I decided that instead of popping a couple of tablets, I’d take a total of 7 – one for each specific ailment.
Now, these are simple everyday, over the counter medication. Admittedly, the pain killers were cocodamol and the sinus tablets were extra strength syndol stuff. I’m no junky and I’m no *complete* idiot. I figure as few as seven can’t hurt you that bad. Turns out if you mix them in a person who already has a chemically affected system, it makes for odd tweets.
Here are those tweets. Repeated in order and with no changes anywhere. I have bulletpointed them only to show their original tweetality. Read more…

A day in which you are supposed to do stuff like wash your dad’s car, buy him novelty socks or something and he gets away with not doing any DIY and puts his feet up.

Not me, oh no. Read more…

I take things personally. I let things get to me.

I am full of clich├ęs. I do the fabulous drama queen online exit, I am the person who is quick to anger, I am the ‘he’ in the saying that ‘he does not suffer fools gladly’ too.

I ran off in a big huffy huff, because I was hurt. Do you ever make harsh jokes between friends? Ever try to out-do each other in wars of insults? We call this snarking and I use to be involved in a great deal of snarking, but my favourite snarkpartner is no longer around so I try to make do with whomsoever is available. I made one of these snark attacks recently on Twitter and instead of a snarky reply, I got nothing. Instead there was one of those blank passive/aggressive statements made out to everybody, but it actually aimed at one person. Then I was unfollowed. Then I was blocked. Read more…
