Nothing To See Here, Just A Round Up

You know even though this was a round up, and I wasn't really going to write anything, it still took a while for me to do it. All I'm doing is saying what I've already done and I don't think I can do a good job of that? Fuck. I guess I should really call the therapist today. My doctor couldn't refer me herself, she gave me a number to ring, but I hate using phones, I really do. Still, my need for therapy is stronger than my hatred of phones. Enough misery, on with the show!

Tuesday was a guest post by the always outrageous Pickleope. I'm not really sure I can accurately say what it was about. Basically he was considering the implications of Superman's powers on the darker side of teenage life. I deemed it NSFW really, at least compared to what I post. Compared to what HE posts, it was about average. Still hilariously funny though.

Wednesday, partly because it was an idea, and partly to make up for Tuesday, I introduced you all to the latest member of my family. She's a new niece called Laney-May, and she's downright adorable. I also spoke a bit about how she softened my heart in a way that my nieces and nephews never have, and almost made me want children of my own. I don't think I accurately described how much that feeling freaked and weirded me out.
For those of you who missed it
Thursday was my latest podcast. This time about a problem I have had with blogging lately, and some questions being answered. The problem, for those interested, is that after doing personal posts so much lately, I'm having trouble doing non-personal posts. If I can get over that, and I really should, then I can blog for years to come because I can do a whole post from just one word really. Depending on the word.

Friday I told you all about the May 1st international general strike. Yes not everyone likes strikes, and yes, there have been some in the news lately, but think about the impact that an international strike could have. Not just one company, or one union, being on strike, but several countries.

Saturday I posted a rather short chapter from my story Immortal Space. I would have posted two chapters because one was so short but I wanted to do some rewrites. I really hope I find the time/motivation to do it.

Sunday I borrowed an idea from Anne and posted a video of Irish funnyman Dylan Moran. One of the best Irish comedians there is, and someone who isn't (or wasn't) afraid to push social boundaries. The video was a short routine of his on Germans, and he even got some English hating in there.

Welp there you have it, that was last week. Here's hoping we make it to the end of this week.

  1. I hate using phones too, but I guess my hatred for a sore tooth is worse than my hatred for phones, since I managed to call up the dentist today, lol.

  4. Screw ya mate, my niece's cooler. Your niece's cool in her own way though. She looks frickin' thoughtful. Probably wondering about the flaws in Stephen Hawking's theory about blackholes.

    1. I'd consider that if my dad was indeed her legitimate grandfather. As it is she's probably wondering what kind of family she's been born in to. Everyone always thinks their own relatives are cuter.

  5. Great round up mate, it's great that this week seen the arrival of your little niece, that makes the last week a huge one for you.

    1. Well she arrived the week before last really, but she still invokes the same emotions, so she's still been a big part of my weeks.

  7. I could do a rundown of a week in my life...but it would mainly be about going to Taco Bell, and guzzling down Diet Mountain Dew.

    1. Well I've never been to Taco Bell, or had diet Mountain Dew, so it would be a new experience for me at least.

    1. Well I've already kind of talked about the teeth on your blog, so I'll spare you that again. I like to give a little something to the people who do read every day so that they still get something :)

  17. I hate calling/using the phone, and I used to work in a law office for three years. I think that is where my hatred rose exponentially. :P

    1. Wow I don't think I could ever work a job that demanded phone use. I just really don't like phones at all.

    1. She does have quite the rare name, so I do enjoy that too. When she talks is when all my love for her vanishes near instantly ha.

  19. Kids of your own eh? I don't know, my girlfriend seems undecided. Half the times they're "horrific poop machines" and the other half they're "the right thing to do". :P

    1. Well good luck if you do decide to go for them. Little poop machines is how I see them sometimes. Okay all the time, but when I looked at her I saw beyond the poop. Just make sure the relationship is strong and they will be the right thing to do. Also make sure you're both ready. I don't think you should be having kids while in uni, just my opinion though.
