Today is the March against the cuts. I'm heading up about quarter past 11. My legs are killing me but hopefully it will be a good day. Weather is good for it. Cool but not cold.

Enjoy your saturdays all.

I did this a while back and it didn't work that well but lets try again.

I'd like to see if we can write a little story/fairytale between us a sentence or a few sentences at a time.

I'll start and then each comment should be the next bit of the story. You can comment as many tmes as you like. I will leave the entry open so if you want to pimp this out or tell other people then do.

This may fall on it's arse but here it goes.

It was a blissfully sunny day in June, the sky was pure blue. The world seemed to sing with all the living creatures that buzzed and hummed as they went about their business.

You are an absolute cock who has no idea about respect. You talked out of your arse. No one understood your lessons but regurgitated your own pointless drivell in order to pass your pointless course. The term delusions of gradeur springs to mind. I can see why you have just stayed at Uni and taught there, the real world would have you for breakfast.  In a way I'm pleased because how you treated as made me make sure I was a mcuh better teacher than you were.

hummm I never realised I was quite so annoyed by the man.
Lori take note he worked at Essex and still does I think AVOID!

It's good when you can get the word 'nihilistic'' in your work notes. 

I know it's massively wanky!

Fucking hells bells some people are such bigoted shits. When I say some people I mean people I fucking work with. WTF!!! We've just had Equality and Diversity training too!!

The subject of 'Big Fat Gyspsy Weddings' came up today - I'm sure you know where this is heading. For those of you that don't know there is a reality TV programme on channel 4 that proports to show Gypsy Weddings. It doesn't it shows a very small minority of gypsies. It's like filming me and saying I'm representative of ALL of us who use LJ it's fucking stupid.

Anyway this twat at work started mouthing off about 'Pikeys' and how she didn't understand why they even made a programme that glorified a culture that was made up of scum or something very much to that effect. I was calm and said 'we're not all like that...if I acted like that in front of my family they would be so ashamed. It's not all gypsies' - technically I'm not a traveller but y'know. Then she was all like 'I know I know but they are pikeys'. A the woman I sat next to asked me questions about John and was genuinely interested and went on to say that she thought T the woman who said it was an idiot to do so in front of all us and she was lucky I didn't put in a formal complaint. I'd also like to point out that there is a guy that works there who is half Jewish and half traveller what if he had heard?!!! TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.

She came over and apologised not that I think it's worth much. Said she was sorry if she offended me when she was 'gobbing off' - her words. Siad she was from 'Romany stock' I said I thought she needed to be careful about taring everyone with the same brush and she said something like 'the pikeys near me' cause trouble and her experiences were valid!!!! What the fuck is that?!! So if a black person is horrible to me I can start mouthing off and calling them names and slagging off their culture?!! I think not why is it still acceptable to do it with gypsies. I told her I thought  she needed to be careful about the words she uses.

Anyway I accepted her apology but u can bet yr sweet arse if she says anything like that again I will be making a formal complaint.

As an aside this is also the girl who wanted to go dog racing.

I bet she hates me now. I sure as hell have an issue with her behaviour and attitude.

G and I are going to have a meat free week.

I did used to be a veggie when we met and have been a vegan (for 6 months!) in the past but would love suggestions for things that we could eat during this week.  We don't eat meat every day (I don't think it's good for you to eat meat all the time) and I'm sure I could cobble stuff together but if anyone knows any really tasty receipies please let me know. When I say meat free I also mean know fish.

If you add me as a friend and do not say anything then I will not add you back and since pretty much all my entries and friends only it is a pointless exercise.

Also I only read English.

Thank You.

As you were

Well it's Monday morning and that is always pretty sucky....if you want to cheer yourselves up why not go and add something to my love post and who knows someone might have said something lovely about you.

mcmurphy79: (Pan/books)

I've seen it done in a zine before so I thought I would do it here, since I am no longer doing zines anymore. It would be my alphabet issue. I'm not gonna put it on my zine filter but will put it under a cut so you can read or skip what you like.

I have blatantly stolen this (from[info]seegwa  via [info]ayoub) but thought it might be nice and I have lots of friends who know one another.

This is a love post

Here's the deal: You post a comment with somebody's name in it if they don't already have a thread started. Then you reply to that comment with something you love about them. After that scroll through the comments to see if you have any other friends to leave love for. You are under no limits as to who you may post, I love hearing what you love about strangers too! There are no limits to how many names you can toss into the circle, the more the merrier! You don't even have to know me to participate!

I will send each person that's mentioned a note to let them know the nice things said about them.

***Please be sure to reply to the comment that has the person's name in so each person can easily find their love notes.

Please feel free to let all your friends know about this post as well! Now, on to spreading the love!

I realise what an arsehole I look, having just added friends and then saying u I'm doing a friends cut. Well I've done it now and I'm pretty sure that people will hardly notice since I cut journals that have been defunct for over a year in most (not all) cases.

Is thinking of doing a wee little friends cut ...yes, yes I know people hate these and some people think it's bollocks or whatever but it's just a tidy up really. I have lots of people who never post anymore and haven't done for months in some cases over a year or more I'm reluctant to let some of them go but I think maybe they have given up the LJ thing....if you are one of these people but you still read then let me know....I have loads of new people I have added and as far as I'm concerned you guys will all stay as we are just getting to know each other and I like you :-) Regular faves (you know who you are) will stay as I think you all rock. I have some I need to consider if we are getting on on certain issues.

If you want to bail now is a good time

This Muppet always scared me and still does.

So did this one Janice I believe she's called.

But of course everyone loves Waldoff and Statler. G and I are mutating into these 2.

Did you have a favourite Muppet? One that scared you?

mcmurphy79: (music)
What are you top ten songs of all time?
Feel free to explain why and/or add a video/clip

Here are mine )

I'm thinking of doing a tiny weeny friends cut. I'm finding myself having fundamental differences of opinion with 1 or 2 people. I'm ok with difference that's all good but these things are just TOO fundamental. Also one or 2 people have dropped off the radar completely.

Do you and your significant other have pet names for each other?

Post anoymously if you want.
