Oh, not often we see surveys anymore and I think I might do this one this evening. I feel like it I guess.

1. If your doctor told you TODAY that you were pregnant, what would you say?

I would be happy and worried.

2. Do you trust all of your friends?

Only certain people, I find as time moves on I trust less and less people, but it's only natural to discover that, I don't think it's just me.

3. Would you move to another state or country to be with the one you love?

Yes. In fact I would rather move now.

4. Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?

Not really. Things just happen.

5. Can you make a dollar in change right now?


6. Which one of your friends do you think would make the best doctor?

Sharon who I work with maybe.

7. Are you afraid of falling in love?

Nope. It makes me happy.

9. Is there someone who pops into your mind at random times?

That would be everyone I know, even people I don't know. Most commonly it would be Richi.

10. What's your most favorite scar?

11. When was the last time you flew in a plane?
I've never been on a plane.

12. What did the last text message you sent say?

Hi babe I miss you, how was today?

13. What features do you find most attractive in your preferred sex?

Well, I have found those features in the person I love and with him come over features that make him a whole person. It's not about what I found most attractive, it's finding the right person and learning to love all they are.

14. Fill in the blank. I love.....

Richi, Stiltzkin, my family, all the good things.

15. What is a goal you would like to accomplish in the near future?

Two, one girl, one boy.

18. Would you make a good parent?

I think so.

It's an image from We Love Katamari on the PS2. A bear with a bomber jacket on is always something to smile about.

20. What's your middle name?


21. Honestly, what's on your mind right now?

Weeeeeeell, let me just get some tea. That's on my mind. I will do just that.
I was thinking a lot about my dinner, which I only just finished cooking at 11pm. I make Thai curry a lot, it's generally a success because the ingredients are so good.
I make up the paste myself first, which is really good stuff. This one tonight however looked bad in the pan, weird colour and texture. Now I keep thinking I'm gonna get a stomach ache. I hope not because I used string beans and broad beans grown in my own garden, still, it tasted good anyway. I just don't know why it looked so bad.
THAT is what I was thinking about!

22. If you could go back in time and change something, what would it be?

I would if I knew it wouldn't alter future events, but I'm sure it would.

Phyllis and Grimo...Grimo might need to be sedated.

Some shorts and a vest.

45. Who made you cry?

I more just welled up talking about Jetson the cat.

46. What was the last TV show you watched?

It wasn't a show, I just saw some of Three Kings the war film. It actually made me kinda annoyed, for trying to be flashy and clever and failing miserably, it all seems really inappropriate.

Oooh, long time since I posted by the looks. I'm at home, feeling ill due to a cold, burning eyes, headache etc. So I'm missing a night out with everyone which I'm sure I would have enjoyed too, they are all there.
Sometimes it's oddly fun looking at old posts, here's one of those ipod shuffle things that I will do with spanking new library of 2010.
Whoa what a Saturday night!!

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...

Opening Credits: Uprising - MUSE. Now that's cool, makes me sound like a bit of a freakin' renegade. 'Bolb - Renegade'. Against...chavs.
Waking up: Sycamore Trees - Angelo Badalamenti. It's the guy singing in the Black Lodge in Twin Peaks. Doesn't bode well as a waking up song.
First day of High School: Changing of the Seasons - Ane Brun.
Falling in love: Cries and Whispers - Oldboy ost. Perfect! It's a classical piece and bit like a waltz I guess, and dramatic.
Fight Song: Love and Misery - Ane Brun. NOT appropriate.
Breaking Up: Retrovertigo - Mr Bungle. Good choice.
Prom: BUGABOO - DIR EN GREY. That's fucked up.
First day of college: Stanley/Frank/Linda's Breakdown - Magnolia ost. What a sad day..
Mental Breakdown: Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1 - Flaming Lips. That would be really disturbed considering how upbeat that song is.
Road Trip Across America: Time is Running Out - MUSE.
Getting back together: From Out of Nowhere - Faith No More. Awesome.
College Graduation: Guiding Light - MUSE. Too much MUSE in my life.
Wedding: Bleeding All Over You - Martha Wainwright. Wrong. Considering one lyric is 'I know you're married but I've got feelings too'. !
Birth of a Child: She's Like the Wind - Patrick Swayze. lolzorz
Career: Gohatto - Ryuichi Sakamoto. This really is not working.
Final Battle: So Many Friends - Martha Wainwright. This song was in my dream last night.
Death Scene: Pussy - Rammstein. FUCKING HELL!!! Talk about inapropriate!! Funny though, listen to the song.
Funeral Scene: (Nice Dream) - Radiohead.
End Credits: Girl Talk/Birds In Hell/Laura Palmer's Theme/Falling - Angelo Badalamenti.

Here's my first homegrown pictures of Stiltzkin, or Stiltz..Suterutsukin, the nicknames have already started! That last one is his name in Romaji Japanese which sounds pretty cool.
Stiltz is a real sweetheart, a little timid but very affectionate when he wants. He's such a softie of a cat and never tries to use his claws or even bat at you. I took these pics in mid cleaning deliberately for added hilarity, I pissed myself looking at these.
Sorry I'm not using a cut cos I want these showing on my page.



Sometimes he looks extremely like Des like here.

There's something so nice about sitting at home knowing I have no work 'till Monday, drinking Champagne, smoking a cigarette and hearing The Pouges 'Fairy Tale of New York' on TV. Lovely!

I only have a diddy little bottle of bubbly which came in my gift from C&H, believe it or not we get a Christmas hamper every year from the company. I decided to crack it open tonight as the only thing in the fridge was a HIDEOUS bottle of Lambrini. It's a well known chav's drink which Richi brought not realizing what it was. Anyway the cork popped straight into the ceiling leaving a dent..awesome! No, really.

Oh great Grumpy Old Men/Women has started on BBC 2. I kinda like it really, since one episode featured some women talking about men and bloody hell I don't want to be a grumpy old woman, but one bit was fucking hilarious - you know when you ask a man if they can do a job, something simple, even, they say "I'll do it later/I'll do it tomorrow...Yep." And you know, it won't EVER happen. Later will not arrive. I'm not dissing men but it did make me smile how spot on this show was.
Today it's bitching about Christmas, but I love Christmas.

This is Stumpy as he's now known until we pick him up, I have not met him yet but this his picture on the website..


I think he's absolutely gorgeous. Check out his leopard and Zebra print throws!

I'm in a good mood for two, now three good reasons. Unbelievable!

Firstly yesterday we had two callers to the flat, two ladies on behalf of the Cats Protection in Canterbury. Richi this year had been trying without me knowing to get me a cat which I'd always said I would like more than anything else. Last year it was too difficult for various reasons. He'd taken Christmas as the opportunity to to get one but obviously the shelter don't like this, but on meeting me I think they could see I'm cat mad and not a child wanting a kitten to play with.
So after lot of questions and filling out of a form, she was happy to let us adopt a cat. I am so happy, this is the longest I have gone without a cat in my life, and it's felt like something is missing. A cat besides my Richi, is my ultimate companion, they never cease to surprise me with their quirks and funny ways, the feeling of caring for them and what they can give you back, even though they only will do on their terms.
I had already heard of about three cats they have ready, and although I would love all of them in an ideal world, one cat stuck in my head and was the one they suggested. He is a black male cat, amber eyes, very timid and shy. He reminds me lots of Des, but will never replace Des. Des was the king of cats.
This little guy is called stumpy due to having no tail, and apparently has a round face. Awesome! I was considering renaming him Dante after Dante Alighieri, Divine Comedy, just think that will suit him. Then I remembered an idea a while back of calling a cat Stiltzkin after this dude:



Stiltzkin is a legendary moogle from Final Fantasy, who likes to travel a lot and sell you stuff. Stumpy seems to be a house cat who doesn't like going outside much but he can be a retired Stiltzkin.
With any luck our Stiltzkin will be coming to our flat just after Christmas. WooHoo!!!!

Also yesterday with much excitement we found out Rage Against the Machine made it to NO.1 which goes to show what we can do if we try, Richi and I bought it 6 times between us and it's always been an anthem to us. Knowing it's Christmas No.1 and beating that cynical idiot cowell at his own game is blissful..

Anyway today just before getting up for work, Maggie calls me to say the coffee shop is going to be closed! That's probably the first time that's happened since I been there, at least from that early a time. It was due to too many essential staff not being in so I get another day off, meaning I only work Tue and Wed. Could be possible tomorrow, who knows, just hoping my pay is not affected, I don't know yet.

Found out Brittney Murphy died yesterday, she was only 3 years older than me.
