I have been intrigued by the prospect of a waffle maker for a while.

Today I decided I would really like to purchase one.

I think this is amazing.

This is also quite special. any other suggestions on a postcard.

Today is gonna be the day that we're gonna bring it back to you.

Today I'm not very well at all.
Everything seems to have caught up with me.

This is what I have... Myalgic Encephalopathy

It pretty much sucks. I find it hard sometimes, well alot of the time to tell people that I am really struggling with it. When I'm struggling with it.

I was reading some statistics up on it earlier, i must admit when you are low it probably is not the best thing to do. Anyhow. Its confusing, I'm torn between two extremes.

On some of the websites they talk about those who are bedridden, and I think back to when that was me, not making it to school due to extreme pain and tiredness amongst other things that a 12 year old should not have to go through. 10 years on and I'm better than I was then, so much better, I can only praise God for my progress because without him I would not be able to be so strong and determined. That is the word I think, determined. I am determined not to return to how I used to be, in this determinedness I am busy, too busy. With a degree and counselling and youthwork and friends and family and life. People often say that I'm one of the buisiest people they know. Sometimes I do to.

Then I have days like this where after 2o lectures and a day of placement plus a busy week before hand I'm having a mini crash.

I don't really know how I coped back then, when I was younger. It feels like I was a diferent person then. Something that helps me now is my friends. Some know and some don't. Those who do are awesome, those who don't, I know if I could explain they would be awesome.
Its not a nice thing or fun thing to try and understand, so I am even more blessed when they want to.

I know I will be okay. But it just sucks from time to time, I think thats allowed.

On a side note, I am sad because I didnt get to make pancakes yesterday.
Also, I watched one tree hill last night, the dare to dare episode, LOVE it.
On a further note.

I used to watch this with my parents when I was a kid. This new movie looks very fun.

A couple of years ago I was living in brixton, my small group I had begun to set up didn't really happen one wednesday.. (due to the fact that no one turned up) So to help with my slight disappointment, my two lovely housemates and I... made pancakes.

It wasn't pancake day but was a very joyous occasion, good times were had, and not all of them ended up on the floor due to over exited tossing high into the air!

Making pancakes is fun, I don't know why, but it is a social and yummy time. Tonight we will make pancakes, and they will be good.

I was thinkng about lent too today on the way to placement.

Things I am giving up, include getting stressed, if thats possible, I get far too stressed when I could just stay calm and give things to God. Lets hope in the trying it will be somewhat beneficial. I see it as a challenge, an exciting challenge. More time spent having fun and focusing on whats really imprtant rather than stressing over the little things.

Another thing which may sound rediculous so I will write it in code, but I am also going to try to stop thinking about jellybeans, this is because I don't need to and they also take up too much of my thought processess.

So giving up stress and jellybeans BUT taking up calling people more, I have become very lax in doing this this term. I Like talking to people on the telephone. I prefer being in person, but if they live far away it can be fun.

Skype is also fun.

Be joyful and eat pancakes today.

surrealism, food, karaoke full, sleep.

Lecturers singing grease songs.
Waverly has a strange effect on all.
Good on me.
It is a well needed break and refresher even if we do have 20 lectures...

I'm so full of food!

Prince charming has not arrived yet. still hoping.

My last call, my life is yours, in your gifted hands.

Today I've been struck by two things after watching some video's from the past couple of years.

1) My video editing skills used to be shocking.
2) Remembering gives you hope and excitement for the future.

Hey yeah this is the sunshine, you've been living in the sky are you ever going to come on down.

Tonight I made waffles.
Today I had good conversations. Really good.
This morning I got up for lectures which I didnt have.

Now I'm going to sleep.
waffles make me happy.

50ish fun things to do in...


Edited to be applied to tesco or supermarket of your choice.

1. Take shopping trolleys and fill them, stranding them at strategic locations throughout the store.
2. Ride those little electronic cars at the front of the store. ????
3. Set all the alarm clocks to go off at ten-minute intervalsthroughout the day.
4. Don't bother doing your own shopping. Simply find someone with a full trolley containing roughly the items you need, and when they are not looking take it and go pay for it at the checkout. (this is not stealing, they did not own the items yet, they were simply 'moving them around')
5. Contaminate the entire auto department by sampling all thespray air fresheners.
6. Challenge other customers to duels with tubes of gift-wrap.
7. Leave cryptic messages on the typewriters.
8. Re-dress the mannequins as you see fit, then arrange them into erotic poses. (be creative with the gift-wrap tubes used in point 6).
9. When there are people behind you, walk really slowly,especially in thin aisles.
10. Walk up to an employee and tell him in an official tone, "Ithink we've got a code 3 in housewares," and see what happens.

14. While walking through the clothing department, ask yourselfloud enough for all to hear, "Who buys this crap anyway?!"
15. When you leave the store, try your car keys in the door of every car in the car park until you get to your own. Then drive off as if this is perfectly normal. (Note- if you don't actually own a car and walked to the store, attempt the above by substituting car keys with your house keys).
16. Ride a display bicycle through the store; claim you aretaking it for a test drive.
17. Follow people through the aisles, staying about 5 feetbehind them. Do this until they leave the store.
18. Ask if you can test some super-glue before buying it, then walk around the store gluing random items to other items/customers/staff. For added fun: See how many cashiers you can glue to each-other before any of them notice.
19. As the cashier runs your purchase over the scanner say "BEEP" in a loud voice. Repeat this for every item, and for other customers items. If the cashier protests, kill them.
20. Take off your shoes and tell them you want to return it andwhen they say you didn't buy it there say "The customer is always right dammit!!" Make a scene.

21. Move "Caution : Wet Floor" signs to carpeted areas.
22. Set up a tent in the camping department; tell others youwill only invite them in if they bring pillows from Bed and Bath.
23. Test the fishing rods and see what you can catch from otheraisles.
24. Ask other customers if they have any....
25. Drape a blanket around your shoulders and run around saying,"I'm Batman. Come Robin, to the Batcave."
26. Climb things.
27. Randomly throw things over into neighboring aisles.
28. Play with the calculators so that they all spell "hello"upside down. Once you have mastered this, progress to "boobs".
29. When someone asks you if you need help, begin to cry andsay, "Why won't you people just leave me alone?"
30. When 2 or 3 people are walking ahead of you, run betweenthem yelling "Red Rover."

31. Make up nonsense products and ask employees if there are anyin stock. (i.e.: Shnerples). Do a vague hand-mime of what a 'Shnerple' looks like to assist them.
32. Take up an entire aisle in toys by setting up a full-scalebattle with G.I. Joe vs. X-men.33. Take bets on the battle from above.
