Real Life Documentaries

I know I'm getting old when I start liking documentary programs on TV but I have to say..some open my eyes to things I knew about but didn't really care about, and others have taught me new things (as most do, I suppose). With only having 5 channels to watch, my options are limited but Channel 4 has been keeping me going. Not only because of Big Brother and Gordon Ramsay's F Word but because of the docu's on every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Talking Point - Wednesday Nights 11:05pm
Tonight the docu is called I Love You. And You. And You. It's about Polyamory.

Polyamory refers to the practice of having a consensual, loving relationship that involves more than two people.
Only Human - Thursday Nights 9pm
This weeks docu is called Can't Stop Eating. It's about people who suffer from the rare genetic disorder called PWS.
Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). PWS is a rare genetic disorder which affects 2,000 people in the UK today. One of its key symptoms is that sufferers never feel full and cannot control their eating.
Cutting Edge - Monday Nights 9pm
Next weeks docu is called Wedding Days.
This heartfelt film reveals the very human stories of 20 couples, brought together in one moment of time, over a quarter of a century ago.
Last Monday's Cuttin Edge was about The Dead Body Squad.
Once a dead body has been found and removed by coroners, Matt and his team are called in to clean up what is left behind. An undiscovered body quickly begins to decompose and a suicide can leave a very gruesome aftermath, known in the trade as a 'body job'.
Last weeks Talking Point was about The Guy with 80 Wives.
Warren Jeffs, the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints (FLDS), is on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list.
I love watching these documentaries. Anyone in the UK should take time out before/after Big Brother to watch these. You'll enjoy them and they'll really shock you!

2 hours now

This profile is undergoing routine maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience!
That's what myspace has told me for the past 2 hours of me trying to get on my profile. I know everything went down with myspace and things fucked up a little but COME ON...2 hours is taking the hobnob. I've ran out of my usual haunts to visit. I wanted to get comments over and done with but noooooo....not gonna happen tonight by the looks of things. I might even jump on the "sue myspace" bandwagon by saying they caused uncalled for boredom due to their lack of respect towards a member. "I'm 'avin a thought here, Barbossa"...

update... court action shall be taken on my part!
Site will be down for maintenance from 2:00AM PST to around 4:00AM PST. July 24, 2006.

Post 240

..and it just so happens to be a bitch from me about my health.

Most people who know me can probably remember the hell I had to face around October time last year. The frantic calls to the 24 doctors because I couldn't breath, going to hospital to help control my breathing, being told I had Broncitis, having to start using inhalers...I could go on and on.
Today seems to be the start of all that crap again. I dunno if it's because I've caught a cold but I've got a killer cough, which then makes it hard to catch my breath afterwards. It's also got to the point where I feel like I'm choking while coughing. This is how things started last year and I'll be fucked if I'm going through that hell again!!

So, it's a call to the doctor tomorrow to get checked out. I'm making sure I don't suffer again! Need to go find my codeine pills too. Got a headache from hell because of the coughing. That's my bitch over. As you were

Joke of the Day

A little kid was sitting on the top of a flight of stairs and his Mum
was watching him.
The kid had a bag of jellybeans. He put one in his mouth, ate it,
grabbed the cat and bit it.
Then dropped down to the next step, put another jelly bean in his
mouth, ate it, bit the cat again and dropped down to the next step.
His mum wondered what he was doing and went up and asked him.
"I'm playing truckies," said the kid. "Poppin pills, eating pussy and

It had to be done. I had to post a pic of my beautiful cat, pyper.

She might be the horror of my life but she's a horror I couldnt live without. I mostly end up screaming at her but at the end of the day, she keeps me company at night. Her purring beside my head, while she massages her claws into her blanket, helps me drift off to sleep without a care in the world.

My sunday mornings are taken up with watching repeats of Big Brother, Eastenders, Charmed and Lost. While waiting inbetween shows, I get a chance to read a sunday newspaper. Most likely the News of the World because the sunday magazine has my fav crossword (and yes...the trashy stories that can be printed inside. I can hear you brits thinking that!). Upon reading the News of the World today, I came across a story that somewhat shocked me and then got me interested in reading more about it.

The story? Suicide chatrooms. Now, before anyone reading this runs off to tell their little friends on msn that I'm 'thinking about killing myself', get your story straight. The news article was about a girl, in the UK, who hanged herself in her bedroom. These days that's seems to be pretty popular. I've noticed it more since my mum's bf hanged himself anyway. It seems that this girl liked to visit a chatroom and talked to users who encouraged others to kill themselves. They even gave them tips on what way would be best. They have their own code of talk too. "Bus ride" is a slang for ending your life, and it seems it doesnt just stop with people in the UK. Australia have set new laws because of these sites, Japan have done the same. They have the highest count of suicides... ISP providers can even face death in other countries and all because of these chatrooms. Sounds outrageous to type that but that was in the news article (which I cant find)

I know the internet can be used to find whatever it is you want these days but it's scary to think that people actually sit in those chats and give tips to others that ends up with them taking their lives. Ministers in the UK are being urged to take charge and stop people from gaining access to these sites. The families of victims have told how other countries have stopped them..but you have to ask it really as simple as that? Anyone, anywhere can open a chatroom, add a java link and advertise it amoungst people they know. Would it be classed as fighting a losing battle? I know one thing for sure. If someone wants to find something on the internet, they wont give up till they do and they'll find other ways and means to get what they want.

You can read a couple of stories I found from the guardian, dailymail and the bbc. If anyone reading this is having any thoughts like I've mentioned or something else they dont think they can cope with, please call your nearest support group. Samaritans in the UK and Australia are very helpful.

New DP

Seeing as the blog is back in business...sort of...I decided to get back into posting my desktops.

Here is my brand new desktop wallpaper. Freshly picked not 10 minutes ago.

(only after spending 2 hours trying to find one good enough)
The other one I really liked has been resized and is now uploaded as my icon on myspace =)

Blogging Play

One of the reasons I decided to get this going again was because of something I watched on TV. In the mornings, in the UK, there's a show called This Morning. I'm never normally up to watch it but the past few days I have. Today, they had an interview with a guy who's written a play about situations people have blogged about. If you dont believe me, you can read about it here.

This guy has surfed UK blogs and come up with 10 characters for his play (5 actors playing double roles). One character is an agraphobic sex chatline operator.
The play, called Bloggers - Real Internet Diaries, premieres next month at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and will be shown daily at 3.10pm, Smirnoff Underbelly, Edinburgh (3rd - 27th August). There's also a site about the play, which can be read here.

Makes me wonder if I had posted about some weird stuff, would my stories have been part of the play? lol Highly doubtful. I think I might even take a trip down to Edinburgh to go watch this play. It's a 3 hour journey and maybe it wouldnt be worth it, but you have to look at it like this...Maybe it would be worth it and even if it isnt, it's a day away from boring Aberdeen. I'm gonna look into this. What do you all think?

Back to the old days

I decided, and was backed by Luna, to remove the template we had. Now it's back to the old look, which I think is much better. And so does Luna =)
This look will stay for ages..unless something happens to it. Like before.

We've not posted on here for awhile. There's been the odd post here and there but nothing like before. Times are changing and after the break away, I've decided to get this ball rolling again. So stick with us while we get going again.
