Home not alone

December 16, 2017 - 11:51 -- Admin

With the traditional Ozzer cultural downtime for the Christmas and New Year combined with Summer school holidays it means my home alone time has come to an end.

Talisman won by toad

I'd used The Highlands teleport helmet in the inner zone but landed in the valley before the crown. The Wizard was there and I toaded the fucker with the toadify spell.It was a Race to the Crown result and then he simply hopped onto the crown space in all his toady glory to win.Beaten by a toad; that's a fail.

No arse blood!

It seemed the bleeding arse incident was a one off and healed itself. I had to check pre-wipe and no blood.I now have the soft, relaxing feeling of not bleeding out of my arse to be a new thing for us to deal with. I say us because the impact of my wounded mind and under cooked body falls on everyone around me because they have to help me and, for now, I can't contribute.But as GoT famously opined "Some people will always need help.

Sneezed wryly

I sneezed twice but each time I actually said the word "Achoo" they both came across as wry, even mocking.It was a weird delivery of a double sneeze, to sound as if I am insulting someone with a wry cliched sneeze except the only one here is me.What's next? A sneering clearing of the throat? A sarcastic ball scratch? These are normal reactions; I don't want to set a pattern of body response twinned with aggrandisement.

Bleeding arse and a snot bubble

December 12, 2017 - 13:04 -- Admin

I had a scare this morning after I saw a streak of blood in the toilet following a motion. Knowing thewife has a better head for such things I texted to ask if I should get an exam but she said if the blood was bright it indicated an internal tear which happens sometimes to her. I went again later with no blood appearing.But after I saw the blood I feared another health contraction, where your world shrinks to just dealing with a health crisis and the rest of normality fades to background.

It's official, people of the same sex can marry in Oz. We're the 28th country to do so and the last of the eyes to do it. But it came at a cost---I read reports of harassment and abuse doubled for LGBTIQ people during the plebiscite, the last gasp of the bigoted who cannot comprehend that such people exist.

That's a major red flag

November 30, 2017 - 19:04 -- Admin

With thanks to SNL.For the first time in seeming forever I put in for a job that I'd be keen to do. Only it was after I sent it that I realised I had misspelled the name of the point of contact. Not just their first name but their surname too. The latter was because of a broken embedded email address where that address had forgotten a letter in the contact name.

What it is to be a person

I've been reflecting of late on my childhood and the manly aspects of it where I was sent to a place that triumphed its ability to turn boys into men. Fortunately that institution is now co-ed but I expect it still suffers from its own idea of what a man should be and what they should not.Should have: body that works, be average height or better with an athletic build.Should be taught: boys who are not that are scum and not manly. Now imagine the first is X and they are taught that Y is bad.
