^ That’s me as a teeny wee sprog with my Mum.
I share this because… It’s My Birthday! :D
I’m 25 Years Old Today - I’ve spent a total of 9,131 Days on this earth. It’s glorious, it’s seven in the am, I just slept for nine straight hours after having an enjoyably lazy but long day yesterday (reading ebooks and/or watching Castle), it’s also raining *jumps around* and it’s dull; perfect. Thank you, powers that be.
So I’m gonna faff online a while then I’ll pop out for a wee walk, in search of food, with the meagre pocket change I have at my disposal then I intend to return home, have some munchies, maybe watch a film or something, have a bath *shrugs* I have no plans but I intend to remain upbeat and think on all the good things about my life.

To Reblog or Not to Reblog? (Another-Interweb-Scrapbook)

Hey :)

I’ve not really been blogging here on G-C-U for a while not because I’ve been caught up with my other Tumblog : Another-Interweb-Scrapbook. [Link Works, Hopefully] :p

I don’t have much to report at the moment, shut away in my flat with T, keeping myself entertained, getting on with recurring chores and enduring the mundanity of everyday life plus reading comics and books, watching TV Series and Films, writing lists and faffing on the interwebs, etc.

Although my other blog isn’t primarily a Craft/DIY blog, a lot of posts in relation to that sort of thing have been really well received and even featured, which is kinda cool :D 

I thought I might reblog some of those posts to share them with everyone following me here too. So here goes…

P.S. Maybe check out my new blog if you like what you see - it’s a Scrapblog, so I mainly post pictures and/or gifs of various things and write some little tagline or journalling related to the topic underneath. Whereas G-C-U is more like my diary/my journal - I’m just too distracted to write in it a lot of the time haha ;p

Yeah, it was a bit of a weird coincidence but T and I both separately happened to see this strip on the GeeksAreSexy.net Blog so later on we chatted about the updates posts on the site, including the above; then just after we decided to pop on the next episode in the series of Batman: The Brave & The Bold… It turned out to be an episode where Batman meets Sherlock Holmes :/ Oddness :)

The Castle Across The Road.

Jets have been roaring over the flat since early this morning…. now there’s a huge marching band going along the street; I swear, it sounds like they’re in my bedroom *frowns* Mind you, at least it’s not as bad as during the Military Tattoo at the Castle; that shakes the flat. It’s a few broken vases short of that scene in Mary Poppins (you know the one where the cannon gun goes off and the house quakes then they grab everything to stop it breaking?) on the plus side though, the fireworks are admittedly awesome… for a while. They happen in August, for just over a month, nearly every night at around seven in the evening, then again a while after ten pm; so if you’re watching something or having a quiet night in, it can be a pain in the arse. The vibration of the firework explosions sometimes sets a car alarm or two off and always shakes our windows; if you look out our living room window, the fireworks look like they’re coming at you, they’re so close you can smell a scent of them in the air… it’s definitely an experience.

We also hear the gigs that happen up by the Castle too; if you sit in our bedroom with the window open you can hear it quite clearly cause the sound reverberates off the courtyard (hidden garden area behind the front line of the building, with outdoor stairs and walkways to the flats). So we’ve had Blondie, Rod Stewart, Coldplay, Pink, Westlife, Simple Minds, Duran Duran; and Arcade Fire should be playing there early September I think :)

Also, if I remember right there’s some event that happens once a year and we get a whole load of motorbikes and mopeds and trikes, etc. driving along the street like a big parade; that’s pretty awesome to see :D Then there’s the Great Edinburgh Run, we sometimes watch a while and wave or whatever. There are other occasions when there’s been a huge continuous line of different pipe or marching bands and sometimes there are groups of people on horses. And the sights you see during the Edinburgh Festival, don’t even get me started! It’s sort of brilliant, I’ll miss it when we move but this place is different, there aren’t many people who experience those sorts of things live from their living room haha

Was just chilling, watching a few eps of Freaks & Geeks, then between one episode and the next, the song ‘Whiter Shade of Pale’ by Procol Harum came into my mind, so whilst I listened to it on youtube, I remembered my Dad playing it on vinyl one afternoon, which also reminded me of a faded memory of a book I once read… this book.
Labyrinth is a Crime/Thriller Novel which I found kicking about in a box of my parents stuff in the summer between Primary Six and Seven. It was this huge hardback and the cover looked pretty gloomy and intense so for some reason it called to me. It was the first grown-up type book I ever read and it’s about a lawyer trying to defend a guy accused of murder, the evidence is stacked against him but under psycho-analysis he appears to have multiple-personality disorder so the main line of suspense is, is he or isn’t he guilty? will he or won’t he ‘get off’?
Apparently reviews say it’s a pretty shoddy but I remember loving it, it sparked my interest in psychology so I want to get a hold of a copy and read it again but then again maybe I shouldn’t, it might just ruin the memory *shrugs*

ElfStarAnymore (via InnerFatGirl): How You Shop When You Are Poor.

elfstaranymore:

I had to put this behind a cut because it’s way long for Tumblr, but I really hope you’ll read it because I think it’s a very important post.

I started discussing this a little bit here, but I wanted to expand on the idea of how shopping on a very tight budget works, because obviously some people have no idea. I will add the caveat that this is how shopping was done in my family, by which I mean shopping with food stamps for a family with no dietary restrictions, with access to a car, and in a rural area of the U.S. Obviously each family’s needs are different and that is why food prescriptivism - which, remember, is a form of body policing - is fucked up.

Read More

————————————————

Coincidentally, a lot of my own shopping habits mirror many of the points and explanation made in this post. I think a lot of people look down on the general diet of a low income household because they think they likely just eat crap because they’re lazy and/or ‘don’t know any better’, sure in some cases it may be true, but most of the time people in that situation are just trying to do the best they can given the obvious restrictions. I just think we all need to consider and be aware of our own individual privileges in relation to the issue of surviving on a low income.

I think, people who are fairly skint, but still want to eat a varied diet, generally end up having to put a lot more thought into their shopping decisions than people with money because for some people every penny counts and it can be exhausting! I carefully calculate our monthly budget and take time to work out where our money is going, how it can stretch to feed us for a month and it can be really disheartening sometimes.

So yeah,  I think it’s an interesting topic, maybe read the aforementioned post if you think so too.

Sex & The Fat Girl : When Fat Chicks Give Better Head.

I totally identify with this blog piece because… (paraphrasing quotes):

Blowjobs and I have a complicated relationship, and that has a lot to do with me being fat. See, I’m good at giving blowjobs. Really good.

And…

I haven’t been as vocal as I’d like to be about my love of giving blowjobs because I’m fat, and when fat chicks go down on a cis guy, they’re doing it because they’re desperate. Or emotionally damaged. Or seeking male attention. Whatever the reason, it’s never a positive one and it’s always related to fat being something you have to overcome when dating. So I’m reluctant to go ahead and fulfill that stereotype.

Read the article, it’s tres cool.

This is so sad, what a horrible way to go: Ryan Dunn of Jackass fame has passed away :(

T just mentioned this news update to me cause he checks what’s up on his mobile and we had just talked yesterday about how terrible it is when people you don’t expect to, just die. They seem so vibrant and young and alive until it’s just over. We talked about how sad it was to find out about Heath Ledgers passing and Brittany Murphy. And now this too, it’s such a damn shame.

Why Geeks Make Good Lovers

One of the Universal Truths that lie just beyond the fabric of modern society is the axiom that geeks, along with nerds and other peoples who over-invest in intelligence but boast underdeveloped social skills, make the best lovers. Once people realize this, the sexual revolution that will sweep through western culture will make the seventies look like the fifties, and I’m not talking about wider pants. The reasons why geeks are unparalleled as lovers are simple and many:

Geeks don’t sleep around. Geeks, through their higher IQ and therefore greater understanding of the tragedy of human condition, know that the dice only seem to have more sides on the other side of the table. Hence, they instinctively stay loyal to their lovers through thick and thin. Their social skills are also not well developed enough to support an affair, and frankly, geeks generally aren’t quite sure how they ended up with the lover they have attracted. When you date a geek, you know the geek will be yours until you are done.

Geeks are good at the things they try. When’s the last time you met a geek who didn’t have some secret skill just simmering below the surface of a simple-seeming life, honed in the wee hours of the night? It could be hacking, playing video games, or the ability to insert and remove those stupid computer power plug things from drives without cursing or breaking a finger. Let sex become their new favorite late-night hobby, and you know that a geek won’t quit until he or she has learned how to hack into your brainstem through specific genitalia interfacing in parallel with general dermal and oral bonding.

Geeks are not interested in status. Geeks became geeks because they chose to spend their time doing things that would not necessarily make them popular with everyone else in school, like sports and fashion. The ability to resist peer pressure is important to a geek. This means that a geek is more interested in their or your happiness than looking good to others, which will come in handy when either (a) you need attention, in any sort ranging from the nurturing to the lascivious, and also, because both of those things are not necessarily unorthagonal dimensions, any combination of the two, or (b) you need to be rescued because it is the climax of a teen 80′s movie. Or both.

Geeks haven’t formed bad habits. After years of serially dating lots of other women, many socially successful guys have become too confident to be intimate, think of women only for sex, and don’t have any intention of letting what in their minds is “just another girlfriend” enjoy the last spring roll. Let us not even pry into the diabolical, dark, twisted, and depraved mind of the girl who has serially dated many men. None of this is true of the geek, however. The lack of past romantic partners allows the geek to approach lovers with the zest of the neophyte. Geeks are not full of romantic confidence; however, once coaxed from their emotional holes like tame bunnies, they are eager to please and enjoy their newfound relationship.

Geeks can concentrate. Geeks can focus their energy on one task with the intensity of a hunting cheetah. Granted, the task they are focusing on may have more to do with hunting orcs with a +1 Sword of Piercing rather than hunting gazelles with claws, but the fact remains that a geek, once set upon a task and given Mountain Dew, becomes a tireless slave to their goal. Put a six-pack of Dew on the bedside table and a geek between the sheets, and you have found yourself one relentless lover. When’s the last time all night actually meant all night? When’s the last time you were with someone who, if they needed more of the night, knew how to get it?

Geeks have excellent finger dexterity. Geeks roll dice. Geeks play video games. Geeks flip pages in books. Geeks type a lot, and use characters like ~ and ^ and | that no one else has any use for. Geeks use calculators in postfix notation. As a result, a geek knows how to use his or her fingers to greatest possible effect. Whether you have a button that needs pushing or a joystick that needs joy, a geek is the person for the job.

Geeks have imagination. Once you have found your amazing lover, you wouldn’t want things to become boring. That is where geeks prove their real worth. Replayability is important to the value-conscious video-game playing geek, and this translates to relationships as well. Wouldn’t you want to date someone who has created a Quake 3 mod? Wouldn’t you want to date someone who has written steamy Everquest fan fiction involving elven incest? Wouldn’t you want to date someone who wished they were Morpheus rather than someone who wished they were Barry Bonds?

There are plenty of other reasons why geeks are the best lovers around, but don’t just take my word for it. Find the nearest sexy geek and coax that person into asking you out, even if you have to do so using instant messenger.
