Bruises on knees, shins, ankles and palms plus sore abs - ouch. Finally learning to hula hoop - win.

 Stupid bloody rich-text editors; just pressed backspace outside of one by accident, and although Chrome will save the contents of a textarea when you go forward again, it didn't save anything in the intro and body fields... arse!
Poll: do you get mood swings?

Print Story Back from holiday

Boo! Team Ginger had an awesome holiday, of which the largest downside was coming home after a mere 7 nights away. Mind you considering it was 8 degrees and raining when we left, the fact that it's now sunny and dry is no small win.

Poll: worst things to happen to you on holiday?

Print Story My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard

 Hmm, I almost typed yeard instead of yard there, which brings back memories of reading the hilarious threads on Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series at the Westeros forums. They're much more fun than reading the actual thing with all the rape and Objectivism.

Print Story I'm too emo for my clothes

Time check - 9:04pm.  So far I'm unable to decide on a title for this diary, I think the awesome French ghettotech mix I'm listening to is distracting me. Time check - 10:10pm. OK, right, that's finished, now I'm being distracted by my house-mate who I've not seen in a week. Time check - 11:12pm. Well, that was a really positive conversation which has left me feeling pretty damn optimistic, which is a trait I'm often in dire need of.

It's now been over two hours since I started typing in this box, and I'll finish the intro in a second, just as soon as I finish reorganising my drawer of print-outs. Because I started doing that around 8-ish, and my floor is covered in folders.

Time check - 11:59pm. My floor is clear, my drawer is (more) organised, an on with the body...
