Wicked Stepmother

    Did you know that Ghost came out 27 years ago today? That’s a fucking long time ago, isn’t it? All of a sudden I feel much older. So old. Groan. I’m only 31. I was only three or four years old when that movie came out. What a classic though. I just wanted to start today’s blog post with a fun fact. The rest of this post won’t be as much fun. I was hated today. I’m still hated. Bear’s Son, who I shall call BS for the rest…

What Do I Want in a Man? The Re-Hash

*Long post alert*   So, I’ve been going #BacktotheBeginning on Twitter, sharing all the old posts right from the beginning again. The name gives it away really. One of my recent finds was this little beauty from July 2012 > What Do I Want in a Man? I had a read through it, laughing to myself, mostly because of the poor writing quality but also because I was a funny fucker. It’s funny how things change too. Some of the things I wanted back then are still important now, of…

31 Fun Facts About Me 

Content warning: Discussing drug use. It started at 30 and now it’s 31. Why? Because it took me over twelve months to finish the damn thing.

I Love You, Man

I’m starting to really hate my phone. Well, not my phone, Timehop. That poxy app. It’s almost my birthday, so you can imagine the kind of shit it’s showing me right now. Parties, lots of them – my 18th, 19th, 25th, joint birthday and coming home from the other side of the world parties. So many parties. So many people. I had so many friends. I had quite the active social life and I remember having lots of fun. But right now, I’m sat in my bedroom, crying. Funny how…

What Would YOU Do?

What would you do if someone told you something like: “So-and-so’s girlfriend is a fucking psycho, by the way.”  If you knew that someone was dating a ‘psycho’, would you tell them? What if that person were your best friend? You’d totally tell them, right? What if that person was your best friend once but isn’t anymore? Now what d’ya do? Tell them? Tell someone else to tell them? Tell the original psycho-news-spreader to keep their newfound deets to themselves? Update to this: he has a new gf. My sister…

Dear Alice, (About Those Free School Lunches)

Hey, how are you today? I saw a little Twitter debate earlier on, and I really wanted to jump in and get myself involved. I knew, however, that a Twitter spat wouldn’t solve this particular dilemma. Fighting with people in 100 characters or less doesn’t educate them, or show them another side of the debate. All it does is make those with a certain opinion stand even more firmly in their ways and shout a bit louder. I want what I have to say to make an impact. I’m a…

A Man Told Me to Kill Myself Today

Content Warning: Discussing suicide. Yep, you did read that right. A man who I’d never met – some random dude on the internet – told me to kill myself. You probably won’t find that funny, but as I sit here with the #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek blog I forgot to post, and also my rebuttal to #13ReasonsWhy, I did find it funny. Perfect timing! I have been feeling SHIT recently. Nothing has been wrong. My relationship has been fine. I’m not lacking in confidence, despite putting on a couple of pounds (and then…

Matching Facebook Accounts

Matching Facebook accounts. Let’s just talk about those for a second, shall we? I seem to find that more and more couples are opting for a joint social media presence these days but I’m having a hard time coming up with reasons why someone would think this was a good idea. I can think of a hundred and one reasons why it would be a bad idea, though. Let’s start with some of those. There was that one couple I commented on, on Twitter a while back. From the Insta-rants,…

Rudeness.

Rudeness … I can’t stand it. I hate it when people are rude to me because I don’t think I’m rude to anyone at all. I say nice things to people who serve me in shops, always wishing them a great day, please, thank you, all the rest of it. I tip people, even those who don’t deserve to be tipped. I smile at people because I like it when people smile at me. You could say that I live in my own little world, my own happy little bubble.…

The Day That Nana Forgot

It’s taken me a while to post this and I’m not really sure why. I think I’m detached. Feeling guilty, perhaps? Or maybe just sad. I don’t know. Maybe I’m scared I’ll be judged for being a heartless granddaughter in the face of dementia? “Things were all good yesterday, then the devil took your memory, and if you fell to your death today, I hope that heaven is your resting place … “ ***** I went to a funeral today. It was my Nana’s funeral and it was truly awful.…
