Aww, sorry to hear that, but at least you enjoyed the show :) I'm quite liking the book at the mo', but did enjoy seeing Jason Isaacs running around on my TV (now I'm just imagining it ;P).

9876 Just started Case Histories: and have the next one lined up for when I've finished. I will confess I saw this on TV before I realised it was a book adaptation (in my defense... Jason Isaacs appeared in the advert for it, I couldn't resist). I'm liking it so far :)

9876 My feeling is that if I feel stuck between and round up, do I feel like I'm overselling and the same if I round down - am I underselling? If I round down & I feel okay with it then it stays there.
9876 Thank you both for the welcome, a pleasure to be here :)
9876 Hello all. I'm a bit of a sporadic poster so may just call myself a lurker so as not to create any high expectations of me making posts left, right and centre (up, down and below are also not to be expected).

The name's Hayley, the place is England and the caffeine is always necessary ;D
9876 Well folks, let's do this thing! Last one left's a rotten egg!

9876 Hmm, gonna put some pasta on in a bit & have a quick stir in sauce. Followed by chocolate mousse (it's Friday, I can treat myself a little ;P)

Right - so I'll be 'popping' over to yours so you can paint mine like that, right ;D"

I sell DIY Ruby's Claws Kits. But it would be rude to plug them here :)"

Haha, I can usually do them myself - but not when one hand's unable to grip the brush :(

Plus that colour would match the cast and I don't have it - or the shatter effect - and it'd be a great reason for why I need a holiday down under ;D

9876 Mine are naked at the moment but the minute the cast on left hand comes off so I can paint my right hand they will be some beautiful dark red or purple OPI colour :D
9876 Oh yeah, definitely should not have those products subsidized - they shouldn't promote or assist the unhealthy processed products over the healthy or the actual food. Going about it that way you wouldn't have some people up in arms about the 'nanny state' whilst at the same time you couldn't be accused of assisting the main culprits of obesity and it's related illnesses.

The problem with the word 'regulating' is the connotations that can come along with it - nanny state, big brother etc - it'd have us all up in arms (or at least, the press would have us believe that).

I'm sorry, having just read my previous posts (and above) on this subject my brain has now realised how serious I've been. On that note, it has taken ove rmy fingers to say... PUMPERNICKEL!! That is all.
9876 I didn't set foot into McDonalds or Burger King until I was 13 and allowed to go on the school shopping trips on a Saturday - and that was just because it was cheap and I had to spend wisely (haha) Before that my mum refused to go near them and I never really like them that much anyway.

Amelia - I would've been under that exact same threat to - 'don't like it, don't eat it but don't expect me to make something else just for you'.

A lot (not all) of these people trying to blame the government for not better regulating the fast food industry are just trying to pass the blame on because they don't want to admit they have the problem or they just want the money - and it's sad that we, as a community, are helping them.
9876 People know that well known fast food outlets aren't exactly the poster children for healthy eating so if they or their children suffer from ill health because of their choice to eat there every/every other day without even taking some measures to balance it out then I have no sympathy for them.

There was a person in some rag paper interview the other day with the whole 'Oh my son's 8 and fat and now I want to sue McDonald's for making him fat!' Sweetie, you took him there, you let him believe that it's perfectly acceptable to eat 2 meals in one go 8 times a week there - sue yourself first for not stopping this before it got that bad!

9876 Please- we only do that because we like to confuse Americans ;D I joke though, I just never thought of it as being any other way than the one there is :) Maybe I should start writing things down in a notebook labelled 'Advice When Visiting America'.

I'm trying to imagine my friend over there - she always 'bums fags from mates' when she goes out drinking (her words, not mine) But I would pay good money to watch her telling an American that :P

9876 I'm not sure about the basement argument of it but we do have the ground floor then the first floor, not sure how it works over in the US.
If someone told me my place was 'homey' I'd look at them a bit weird and I've never heard someone use disorient in place of disorientate unless they were American or had learnt American-English as their other language.

9876 I had my cousin inform me that she had 'literally peed herself laughing.' I did wonder if she was wearing a nappy at the time.

As for the disorientate debate: I've always thought it was a word - meaning to cause someone to lose their bearings or to really confuse them. I've never heard disorient being used in it's place. Sorry, that's just my opinion on the matter.

9876 Maybe it's because I live alone but I never have this problem. I make a large pot or two of food every weekend that just goes in tupperware boxes so no cooking (except reheating) during the week.

This means I just go out and buy what I need for the week and once all the cooking's done I only have the basics left in the fridge and cupboards.

Who on earth would be brave enough to look away?! I'd order that someone had to keep an eye on her at all times... there'd be watches created specifically for it (but don't look in her eyes!)
I'm sorry, I can handle the Daleks and the Cybermen but these are more creepy!

9876 Gail - your daughter would scare the bejeesus outta me if I saw her in that costume! I hafta admit that the weeping angels scare me the most!
Cannot wait to see next week's episode, but may catch up on last Saturday's first - was in London with the cousins running around and was trying to keep up with it at the same time!

I'm actually looking forward to concentrating on my health, as well as reviving my eBay/Etsy businesses, getting back into photography & testin..."

Put a shot of whatever you like in that cuppa hun. I prefer milk :P

I'm with you on the photography and cameras! If I were any good I'd love to be able to do that :) I'm sure that, even though it is your dream job, you'll find something else to keep you occupied that you'll be loving in no time :) Doors close, windows open - all that jazz!

And, on an optimistic approach - isn't it great that you got to do you're dream job, even if you are leaving it earlier than you wished :D The ego may be bruised but I'm sure the company didn't want to lose you or make it feel personal at all, cuts hit everyone - even those company's wouldn't mind keeping if only things were better.

Just see this as a time for you to do other things you love (roller derby + health issues - I'm with Jim on this :?)and look into some suggestions here, they sound good!
