So I was at work today, doin' my usual thing, when these two little girls come in. They had to be about 8-9 and they were soaking wet from the rain despite having their brollies. They spent about 10 minutes wandering around the shop, until I went up and asked what they were looking for. They asked where the cake and baking stuff was, so I took them there. A lot of it is on the top shelf, so I helped them get the brownie mixture down, and let them off the 10p short they were for it.

"Wow, it makes 16 brownies!" said one of the girls. "We'll never eat all that!"

"I'll take one off your hands for you." I laughed. I make this kind of joke all the time with customers who say they're buying too much.

The girls suddenly grin at me. "Okay! We'll bring you one!"

"Hey hey, I was joking, you don't have to do that." I said back, feeling a bit silly now. They were only little kids, I felt bad asking for one of their brownies. "I'm only here til 6 anyway, I'll probably be home when you're done."

"I'll bring you one anyway!" the girl insisted. "Bye!"

So I went back to work and forgot about it, assuming I'd never see hide nor hair of them again.

5:30pm, and the door opened. It was one of the girls, holding a little white bag. "I brought you one! It's nice and fresh."

I could have cried, it was so nice of her. After all the moody looks, the rude customers, the thieving teenagers, this one little girl made me feel appreciated and happy to work where I do. It's possibly the sweetest thing I've ever had a stranger do for me. ;u; I grinned like an idiot for the rest of the shift. And even though the edges were a little burned, it was the best brownie I've ever eaten.

Nicked this from [livejournal.com profile] starrose17

I do so love to listen to Welsh... even if it does sound like, in the words of my dad, "throat infection gone horribly wrong".

.... Mostly it also makes me sad, because the Welsh guy who I used to see every week in the Co-op died recently... he was a lovely old man, always greeted me with "Bore da" and a smile. He tended to forget his walking stick next to the till...

I was never sad over the death of my great Aunt, but thinking I won't hear him cheerfully babble at me in Welsh ever again... kind of makes me want to cry. I guess this is grief.

...

New DGM kind of cheers me up a bit though. I mean, it had Cross in it. For three panels...

/sigh

Ahahaha....

So I was having a conversation with some folks and found that estimations of where Wales was on a map were wildly inaccurate. Now far be it from me to accuse folks of not knowing their geography; I couldn't find Bosnia on a map if you paid me. Still, the only thing that came to mind was this:

Himaruya is spoiling us again.

Incoming Australia and New Zealand strip? INCOMING OCEANIA STRIP?! Perhaps. WE SHALL LIKELY FIND OUT SOON.

Oh and New Zealand? Totes a girl. LOOK AT HER.

In other news I totally called her having a shepherding cane booyah. <3

So I kind of really hate Countryliner Bus service.

The bus ride to Nena's place and back is always expensive, but how can a double ticket cost more than two singles.... I only managed to puzzle that one out half way through the bus journey.

I turned up at Nena's and found it... sans Nena. I really need to get over my phone-phobia and just use the bloody thing to check if people are in... Her mum was there to let me in and I left the present on Nena's desk. I hope you like it... maybe we could not turn this into a Boston tea party and just have a regular tea party instead?

Anyway I went back to the bus station pretty soon after, content to wait the 10 minutes left until the next bus home.

And I waited.

And waited.

For two fucking hours.

By the time the (last) bus turned up at 6:05pm, it was -3C, dark, and there were eight other pissed off passengers waiting with me. I would pity the driver for being the target of our frostbitten rage were he not such a nonchalant bastard who didn't tell us anything about what had happened to the other busses.

Raaaaaaaaaaaaage.

From Y to Y isn't gonna cover this one.

You turned your back on me and walked away
without saying a single word…
In my wavering heart, I screamed like a child
“Don’t go... don’t leave... hey...”

I swear that is all that is needed of that song to make me tear up.

So I was in a terrible upset mood and From Y to Y helped me cry it out. Then Cande posted more of her MM spin off fic. (Which you should all be reading go do it now.) And then Oz bought my fem!England a paid account. So I feel better and love the both of you. <3333

I slept for 15 hours last night holy shit, went to bed at 10 and only woke up at 1pm the next day. What is morning. That might have been why I was so easily upset yesterday, and why I was so snappish with everyone. Sorry Plurk buddies! My humor gets quite mean when I'm tired.

Managed to make it through Great Gran's birthday party without being clipped around the ear for anything too snappish, though! I do love my gran. 92 and she may yet outlive us all. The woman lives on her own despite having a replacement hip, beating cancer three times and raising four kids, ten grandkids and 15 great grandkids. INDESTRUCTIBLE.

Half an hour to go until I catch the bus to Nena's to give her her present (FINALLY).

Hopefully today won't be as bad.

Edit: In other news (heh), Himaruya remembered Mr Newspaper! My god he's the cutest thing. Little freckles and that hat... I want to cosplay him at a con so I'll have an excuse to take pictures of everyone. |D;; /priorities

Title: Family Ties

Characters (in this chapter): Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland, Diaspora, Dora, America

Rating: 15

Warnings: SUDDENLY gooey mushy fluff.

Summary: Uh, I need to be banned from the kink meme or monsters like this happen? Essentially, Scotland leaves the UK, which gives Northern Ireland an excuse to up and out as well, which leaves England and Wales all alone. Oh yeah, and this somehow leads to World War Three.

Lol what is this thing you call a sleep schedule. )

Urgh I FINALLY finished writing my practice essay to standards I wanted myself to achieve. I hate doing things without a deadline, it just means I look at it and then go back and keep deleting it and starting again until it's "perfect" and it still isn't. Fml.

Oh well, moar meme time.

Regional Dialect Meme )
hellzabeth: (>Konata: ah well you see)
1: Copy and paste this meme.
2: Make the things that you're suffering from in italics.
3: ???
4: Profit!

You know you're in exam lockdown mode when:
- There's a stack of plates and pizza boxes somewhere in your room.
- Several cups of tea or coffee sit cold and unfinished because you finally got on a roll with understanding something.
- You haven't hoovered in weeks.
- Even the dog starts avoiding your room.

- You can't remember the sound of birdsong.
- You close your eyes you see flashcards with names on them.
- You can't remember the colour of your desk, there have been so many books and papers in the way for so long.

- There are still Christmas decorations in your room.
- You have consumed absolutely nothing of nutritional value in a week.
- You start dreaming in textbook quotes.
- All your lightbulbs have died save one, but rather than go out and get new ones, you just move the one lamp around the room as needed.
- You only venture out to get more sticky notes.
- You acquire a desperate need to get sticky notes if you run out.
- Every surface is covered with sticky notes.
- Even the toilet has a note on the lid.

- You only remember to wash when you scratch your head in confusion and your hand gets stuck.
- Time begins to lose all meaning for you, blending into one long mess with the exam at the end of it.
- You find eating to be a chore, especially if you have to make the food yourself, hence the pizza boxes.

- You catch yourself muttering things like "Audience, Purpose, Context, Tone" or "Introduction, Argument one, Argument two, Argument three, discussion throughout, summary".
- There is literally nothing on your calendar after the exam date, and you're not sure what happens afterwards.
- Your internet has never accessed wikipedia so often in such a short space of time.




S-sob.

I regret nothing.

Does this count as a de-anon? I wasn't particularly anon about it in the first place.

Oh and warning about the link.

It's a little bit.

Disturbing.
