All Too Brief

The first time I kissed you, I barely realised how awkward I had become. For all the things I wanted to discover about you, I filled the air with my constant talking. Pausing for breath was a cumbersome necessity. The sun shone and the park was alive with spring colours, but there was only one thing I wanted to look at, even though it was awkward to do so sat on the bench right next to you. People often write about a kiss sending a spark of electricity through you, but the kiss itself was no greater an exhilaration than the buzz that ran through me the whole day. It was a very good day.

To Find A Ghost

I have lost a friend I’ve never met. A friend who I didn’t really know.

At the end of October, a tiny corner of the internet ceased to be.  Nothing but a tiny online forum on the outside, The Forum Whatever was one of the most important things to ever happen to me.  I made friends with people I would never otherwise have known.  I shared with them what I could not share with anyone I would meet with in person. I fell in love. This would not have happened if not for one man’s simple idea. But now it appears to have gone. Because that man has disappeared.

Think Positive

There hasn’t been much in the way of bloggage, but other things have got in the way over the last month, and I was reluctant to write about it, because the last thing this world needs is another blogger moping about the woes of his life.  Moreover, as these problems have taken over my waking and sleeping hours, dwelling on it further is a stress I don’t need.

I am, however, currently in a bout of the more positive side of this bipolar bear of a life I’ve been living for the last five weeks, so I’m going to put some of it down here.

As the three many of you that read this with any regularly know, my father is in hospital. Still.
It’s been over a month now, and we still don’t actually have a confirmation of what is wrong with him.
It’s been one of the toughest periods of my life, I’m stressed and utterly exhausted.
Yeah, this is going to be one of those blogs…

There’s No Charge In My Battery

Whoops!

So the LIVE BLOG FROM GLASTONBURY didn’t really work out, which is a shame, but I have a rubbish Blackberry battery to blame.  I took a spare, carefully charged, and put it in the lockups. When I swapped my first when the meter ran red … nothing.

Most frustrating.

However, it was – to put it mildly – one of the best four days of my life.  I’m going to do extensive blogging about each day, with gratuitous photos of varying poor quality, but I’ve been hampered by some bad times that have made my life decidedly emo, so first off I’ll talk about how the diabetes maintenance went.

It didn’t go well, hehe.
