--- A pain in the arse neighbour keeps leaving an empty tin of air freshener with a dog and cat on it on my doorstep...Im guessing because we’re the only one in the block of flats with kittens and a puppy the person responsible thinks its ours. I have no idea where it came from or why it is even in the apartment block. I finally got pissed off enough and taped a note to it saying, ‘To who ever keeps leaving OTHER PEOPLES RUBBISH on my doorstep (flat no) please stop. Its not appreciated.’ It was still where we always move it too when we got back from the shop. It may seem petty but I’m not throwing it out...what will be next to show up on my doorstep? I don’t want used doggie bags found out in the street near our flats left there because someone just assumes it was my puppy. I won’t be bullied by the drunk, psycho or the anyone else in this close.

--- On Thursday I turned 33. I had an amazing birthday. It’s been years since I had such a good birthday. I never used too look forward to it...not because I’m in my 30s now or anything like that but because I’d been let down so many times. Friends, family and even people I was dating have all let me down. Plans made but ultimately never followed through. Always a ‘good’ reason for it but truth be told on every Birthday that I was let down there was never a good enough reason. I stopped caring all that much about birthdays, more putting up with them for family and friends but insisting on nothing more than presents and cake. Balloons/banners/parties were not allowed. This was the first birthday with my wife and I’ll admit I was worried about all her ‘guarantees’. I should NEVER have doubted her...I’m sorry my love if you’re reading this...I won’t doubt you again. I had an amazing birthday. Lots of presents and lots of fun with my wife. She made me a wonderful meal...it was a brilliant meal. But more than the meal and the presents and my family and all that the thing that I loved the most on my birthday was that my wife spent it with me. She said she’d be there and she was. She didn’t go off with anyone else for a night out. She didn’t cancel her plans for no good reason. She made the day about me. Wow...I didn’t expect it but it happened and it was amazing. I LOVE HER SO MUCH. Oh and she also sung Happy Birthday to me and gave me a pretty cake...That’s one of my fave things about birthdays, cake, candles and Happy Birthday being sung.

--- I’m hoping on Wednesday my Ninja will be arriving. It’s a 50cc Moped. It looks really good. I’ve bought it online. Both myself and my wife are getting one. We got our helmets and bike jackets. I’m applying for my provisional, then when the bikes come we’ll register it and get our plates. Then it’s insurance and we have to buy security stuff like chains, padlocks, immobilisers and disc locks. We’re waiting until we have the bikes before we get them so that we get ones that will fit our bikes. We both also have to sit the CBT before we can go out on our bikes. It’s a day long course and if we pass we can go out on our bikes. That won’t be for another 3 or 4 weeks. By the time my provisional comes through it’ll be at least two weeks on Thursday before we can go for the test. I’m only off on Thursdays and a week on Thursday our puppy and kittens need to go back to the vet for a jab each. I really can’t wait for my Ninja to get here. It’ll be so cool. We’ll keep them indoors until we have road tax and insurance and plates for it. We don’t want to get in any trouble or anything like that. My wife is going to get the tax info at the post office on Friday. The bikes come with the DVLA forms to register it and get the licence plates. The bike looks good and I couldn’t be happier. I’ll update when it’s here and I’ll try and get some pics up quickly. I also hope both me and my wife pass the CBT first time so we can get out and about. It’ll save me £16 a week on bus fair and it’ll mean no more hanging around for busses. I’ll be able to get right home as soon as I’m out of work. Thanks for reading Girl, Interrupted

  • Quote/Lyrics: R.I.P. to all who have passed.
--- I had no idea Kim Manners had passed away until it was at the end of an episode of Supernatural. Sci-Fi has lost a good man. His name has been linked to some great shows, X-Files, Star Trek and of course Supernatural. It was a shock and a shame to see the wee montage at the end of the episode but a nice tribute to a sci-fi legend. R.I.P. Kim I was at work when one of the guys told me that Test had passed away. I remembered who he was but I couldn’t remember what he looked like. It eventually came to me. He wasn’t all that old. It seems that few wrestlers make it to pension age. He wasn’t someone I was a big fan off. It’s always a shame when someone so young passes. R.I.P. Test It was a shock to hear of the death of Natasha Richardson. Even when her health was described as 'critical' I still thought that she would pull through but then I heard the news that she had died of her injuries. I feel for her family. There will be few people that haven't seen her or a member of her family in something either on the small screen, big screen or on stage. An accident such as the one Natasha had is so unexpected, so out of the blue that it makes you stop a second and think how quickly life can be gone. R.I.P. Natasha Richardson I’ve never been a Jade fan but I have felt for her during her battle against cancer. It’s a shame that her boys have been left without a mother at such a young age. I can’t help but think of my brother-in-law. My youngest niece doesn’t have any memories of her own of her dad. She relies on photos and stories. I hope Jade’s boys have memories of their own and that they are old enough to remember her. R.I.P. Jade Thanks for reading Girl, Interrupted

--- Our wee Jasper is getting on great. If you’ve viewed my blog before then there’s a chance you already know how much myself and my wife love Twilight. My wife’s fave character is Jasper...so our wee boy is named Jasper. We’ve had a goldfish in the past named Jasper but he passed away...it left the name free to use for our wee lad. We think he looks like a Jasper. As soon as we saw him we knew that was his name for sure. Here’s Jasper... Photobucket He’s just so adorable. We love him to bits. Our Kitten Dean is named after Dean from Supernatural. We LOVE that show and just had to name one of the boys after Dean. Both the kitten and the character are a bit rebellious, both are handsome and both are a wee bit reckless. We named the right kitten Dean. Here’s Dean… Photobucket Photobucket Our other kitten is Impala. He’s named after the car from Supernatural. A 1967 Chevrolet Impala. It’s a sweet ride. I’d love that care. Our Impala is strong and reliable, just like his name sake. He’s usually the more sensible of the kittens, he’s a bit more cautious most of the time. He’s a wee cutie. Here’s Impala... Photobucket He doesn’t purr as much as Dean but when he does I feel so happy he purr’s for me. We have one other wee guy...Chino the Hamster. He’s not afraid of anything. He’ll go head to head with the kittens if they go on top of his cage or role right to them when he’s out in his ball. My wife’s mum and sister came up with the name for Chino. They thought he looked the colour of a Cappuccino and so Chino was born. Here’s Chino... Photobucket Last picture...Chino, Impala and Dean… Photobucket Thanks for reading Girl, Interrupted

--- I’ve gone back to BlogSoldier. It wasn’t always the best back when I used it but its better than BlogExplosion which is dying a death. BlogExplosion at one time was a great way to get traffic but also to find some amazing blogs. Now it’s all the same blogs you get and most of them, the ones I like I have saved in my favourite folder or bookmarked. It’s a shame that TPTB have let BlogExplosion go to hell because it’s by far the better of all the sites I’ve ever tried...god knows how many I’ve tried over the years but BlogExplosion was always the one that could be counted on to send a decent amount of traffic your way but it’s all changed unfortunately. I’ve read on a few blogs that ppl are trying to get TPTB to get their finger oot and put the time back into it. My wife has been waiting for weeks to be approved and is still waiting...BlogSoldiers added us both within 3hrs. Come on BlogExplosion get yer finger oot and sort out the problem. For anyone who is all pissed with it and thinking of giving up I’d recommend you hop over to BlogSoldier where it’s still well maintained and I’ve received a decent amount of traffic in less than a day. I’m not giving up on BlogExplosion but I can only keep the faith for so long and already it’s almost gone. Girl, Interrupted

  • Quote/Lyrics: 'Ouch' --Me when Jasper bites me!!!
--- On Wednesday 25th February, my wife and I went down to Selby and bought a puppy. We called him Jasper. He’s only 8wks old. He’s a lively little guy and very bitey, lol. When we saw the picture with the ad we knew we wanted him. It wasn’t him in the pic, he’s so much cuter. There had been a few breeds we’d talked about getting and finally decided on getting a Beagle. We were very lucky to see the ad when we did. Within a few days all the puppies were gone, only one boy remained when I phoned and it was a boy we really wanted so lucky we certainly were. The ‘potty’ training isn’t goin as well as we’d like but we’re getting there. He’s only had one shot so we can’t take him out properly until he’s had his second which is happening in a couple of weeks. I really can’t wait to take the wee guy down the park and just for a really good walk that’s beyond the back garden. When we take him out we have to be careful so end up having to carry him a lot, don’t want him getting too used to that. It’s ever so cute when he chases the kittens and they jump up on the seat and he’s too small to get up and can barely see them. He’s a lovely wee boy and I’m very happy he’s part of our family.

--- It was the best Valentines ever. Being with someone I deeply love is wonderful. My wife and I don’t feel we need one day a year to express our feelings, we often go out for a meal and buy each other wee things now and then. We did give in and buy ‘Valentines’ gifts but we gave them early so it was but it wasn’t Valentines gifts. I know we’re nuts but it’s all good, lol. I bought us a nice wine and my wife cooked, having my dinner ready for me coming in from work. She made steak, chicken, potatoes, a giant stuffed mushroom (for me, she don’t like fungus), onions, shallots and an amazing gravy. I was stuffed last night. I was extremely happy. I love her so much. She’s always looking after me and my god can that woman cook. It was a nice night just her and me and our wee kittens and hamster. I make sure my wife knows every day that I love her and my wife lets me know every day that she loves me. We don’t need just one day to let each other know we love each other. Girl, Interrupted

--- Went on Friday 13th to see this ‘remake’. It’s actually pretty good. People screaming in the cinema is always fun. If you’ve seen any of the old Friday the 13th then you’ll know what to expect. There’s nothing outstanding about this movie, nothing that makes it stand out from previous F13th movies but it is still very entertaining. Enough jumps to keep you watching and your heart beating faster than usual. Some nice deaths. The gore factor is high and some of the deaths are pretty ‘cool’ for lack of a better word. If you like men in masks killing annoying teenagers then this is the movie for you. Girl, Interrupted

--- Yip once again I got to be boss for a few days. Asst. manager is on holiday, supervisor is off sick and the boss had to have a day off and a Regional Mangers meeting too so three days I got to play boss. Because the supervisor’s illness came on suddenly the boss didn’t have much choice but to give me some keys and let me run the store for a few days. On Sunday I got to run the shop, something I’ve done several times and Tuesday/Wednesday I got to run it too. The three days went really well. The team worked really well. I was off yesterday. Went in today and the boss was happy with how the place looked. I’d managed to get a valentines section in place and I have to say it looks really good. I’m really happy. I like being able to help out like this, run the store or even just like today and tomorrow where I just close up the shop...taking off the tills and locking up and things like that. It’s fun doing that. But I have to admit that I still wouldn’t wanna do it full time. I really don’t want to be management. Help out yeah, forever well noooo. I’ll be handing back the shop keys tomorrow and I’m ok with that. It’s always good that I can just let myself in in the morning so I don’t have to wait to be let in but I’d rather wait than be management fulltime. I’m off in a few weeks and I can’t wait.

--- I’m enjoying myself. I’ve found the love of my life. If I were a vampire I’d happily ‘turn’ her so we could spend eternity together. I never saw myself as the type to ‘settle down’ I never imagined I’d ‘live happily every after’. But that’s how I feel. I’ve got my ‘happy ever after’ and I’m getting to live it everyday. I never thought there would be someone I’d wish to exchange rings with never mind want to call someone my wife or be considered someone’s wife but that’s what has happened here. My wife is my whole life now. I never want to be without her. Even after all this time together I still want to be with her. Usually after 3 maybe 4 months I start to want out. I get annoyed and bored with the person I’m with. When the ‘honeymoon’ period is over its always down hill from there...but this time, this relationship is different. In everyway it is different. I love you my wife. I love you more everyday. Thank you for choosing me. Thank you for letting me be me. Hugs y’all Girl Interrupted

--- This is my kind of movie. I’d either love it or hate it and this one I have to say I love. The added bonus of Jensen Ackles as the lead was just wonderful. I love JA as Dean Winchester in ‘Supernatural’ and he don’t disappoint in this movie. I think it was quite genius to make this a 3-D movie, otherwise it would have run the risk of being another run of the mill horror movie. I do remember the original, way, way back in the early 80s, didn’t remember all that much but enough to know this was a re-make. Everything seems to be a re-make these days. At least this wasn’t a huge film back in the 80s that many people would have seen or would remember. If you like this type of genre I think you’ll like this movie. The 3-D just gives it that little something that other movies of it’s type have been missing lately. Hugs y’all Girl Interrupted

--- Around an hour ago I finished reading ‘Twilight’ by Stephenie Meyer. It’s wonderful and I’ve already got the follow-up, ‘New Moon’ sitting here waiting for me to start reading. My ‘Mistress’ has finished reading them and has, on my prompting, told me some of the things to expect. I can’t wait to get to the end of the series. I’ve been to see the movie 6 times and I’m not afraid to admit that, lol. I get some funny looks when I inform people of that. But I love this movie. I have a thing for vampires. I love the whole mythology. Stephenie Meyer’s interpretation of that mythology is quite impressive. She’s brought together some of the finer points. The one thing I wish she added was ‘Supernatural’s’ take on vampires...the second set of teeth that descends. But going with the ‘non-fanged’ vampire is also pretty cool and very brutal. With fangs and with the ‘Supernatural’ second set they’re at least sharp and would make a clean entry. No fangs or pointy teeth at all...much more painful. If you’ve read the books or seen the movie or both I’d be interested to hear what you think of ‘Twilight’. I have more on this I want to add...including some pics I like. My comp is running way too slow to add em now...so expect more on this topic in the future. Hugs y’all Girl Interrupted
