In the works – multi post work rant.

February 12, 2007 at 3:12 pm (Debt Work)

I’ve really had a rough spell at work these past weeks, so I thought it best to start blogging about it. Starting tomorrow, I’ll be posting passworded posts about work issues. For those of you who read here often, it’s the usual password. If you don’t have it, email me at kinkylilblackdress[at]yahoo[dot]com. Just let me know who you are and I’ll let you know the password.

NI Interview, L-Word, and Oliver

February 6, 2007 at 3:49 pm (General Life)

I had my interview with the National Insurance Number people in Manchester today. Basically, it’s like a Social Security number, but it’s what’s used to get my free health-care. I went over-prepared, figuring it would be like my Visa application, but the interviewer just laughed at me. He was a nice guy who I guess could tell that I was stressed a bit. At any rate, I should have my number in about 3-4 weeks. Which is just in time, since my doctor’s has already posted me something saying they can’t find my NI number in their database.

I’ve been watching The L-Word since I got here. Emma downloaded the first three seasons, and the ones that have been on this year. I’m kinda into it.  Emma’s got a thing for Bette and Carmen. I’m not sure who I’m into.

When Emma was growing up, she hung out mostly with boys. One of the boys she used to play soccer with, Oliver, died in a car crash this past week. It’s a sad thing really. The town is so small, so all of the people her age are coming out to the funeral and services. Open casket funerals aren’t too typical here, and there is an open-viewing for Oliver’s close friends. Emma’s not going to that, and I’m not sure she’s going to do to the funeral. She doesn’t do those types of things very well. I suggested sending a card and letter to the family, and when she’s ready, we can go visit the grave on our own, rather than having to see all the people she grew up with in that sort of emotional state.

I bought my plane ticket back to the States for my birthday. Em and I got them for 122pounds, plus 147pounds tax. Wicked cheap! Direct from London to Boston. Nice.

My soul hurts for these girls. It sounds like all they wanted in this world was to be together. Now, they are.

Announcement

February 4, 2007 at 10:03 am (Personal Revelations & Whatnot)

I’ve made a decision, and I’m not moving from it.

If you, or someone you know, has a problem with something that I’ve posted on my blog, then you need to contact me directly to begin a discussion about removing it.

I’m sick of 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th parties trying to judge me and what I say here, and make their demands on behalf of others. I understand you may think you are being helpful to a friend, but unfortunately, things are getting mixed up and twisted in the interpretation phase. Do not contact Emma in hopes that I will listen to her more than I’ll listen to anyone else. Do not go to Emma’s mother and ask her to talk to Emma about talking to me about removing anything. They have nothing to do with my blog, so leave them out of it. I’ve told Emma the same thing I’m telling all who read this:

If it’s not worth it for you to talk to me directly about issues you have with what I’ve said, then it’s not worth it for me to take it down.

End. Of. Story.
