Wow, this rant got long... )

Huh, I forgot that that was what I was dreaming about last night until just now. Mam's talking about Grandad to a supplier, and I just remembered my nightmare. I dreamed that my Grandad was still alive. Now, that really doesn't seem that bad, I know. And it really wouldn't have been - if I didn't remember the whole way through the dream that I had gone to his funeral, that I had spent two days in the house with his body, that I had read at his Mass and comforted my mother, brother, sisters, cousins through the process. Not a nice thing to be reminded this morning, I would have been happier if I could have forgotten.

In other news, this morning I totally forgot the speed limit on the road up to work. So I'm there, happily driving along, keeping my speed to 80 km/h, and I can't figure out why the cars in front are getting further and further away from me. I was like, "I'm not driving that slowly, am I?". Until I realised that, actually, yeah. 20 below the speed limit here. *rolls eyes at self*

I will never understand that 2 hour ritual that people go through in the mornings to get ready to go out. It takes me, including shower and breakfast, 20 minutes, roughly. From asleep to out the door in 10, if I skip food and get it later. People's interest in their personal hygiene and appearance is commendable. That this leads to hour long delays is not. Also, Little One? Totally an asshole-ish move to have a half-hour long shower after the water heat has been turned off for the morning. Cold showers are not good for chest infections.

On a side note, I can tie up my hair again (yay!) which means it's time to cut it. Also, Grandad's gone further downhill, which sucks ass, quite frankly.

... that sometimes clichés actually work in real life. I guess there's a reason they're clichés. The same things keep happening to people.

I always have been, and it's more than likely that I always will be. I'm not even ashamed of it. Because I know that real life isn't all sunshine and roses and fairytale endings. Hell, it isn't even like that more than a quarter of the time. But here's the thing: Disney represents the good things in life. Love, trust, forgiveness. Those feeling's we're afraid to take a chance on in case we get screwed over. Which, maybe sometimes, is a smart idea. But isn't it better to give kids hope for the happy things in life than exposing them to depressives so young? Showing them that if you work hard at something, you'll get something for it, in the end? That there's someone out there for you, that'll maybe have a hope of understanding and supporting you through all the shit that life has to throw at us?

And look at it this way. We all have our dragons to face. Our curses to break. Sometimes it's nice to think that there's someone out there who's faced worse and come through it ok. Even if that someone isn't quite real, they're probably based on someone who is. Someone who got their "happily ever after", in whatever form it takes.

(Yes, I squealed my way through Enchanted again. Like I say, I'm not even sorry. :D LO, come back!! I miss you like hell, girlie.)

...I think the contact of one of our suppliers is possibly e-flirting with me?? Or else my aunt.  :S :S :S

I seriously think this is the best thread I've read in a long time. People today have some sense of entitlement, huh?

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the fact that my life reminds me of an Alannis Morrisette song. :S

What it all comes down to
Is that I haven´t got it all figured out just yet
I´ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other is giving the peace sign

I am totally in the mood for office AUs at the moment and I have no idea why, so reading this was a huge pleasure. [ profile] elleheartsyou 's Dreaming of Manhattan, my third Big Bang beta. Jon/Spencer and Brendon/Ryan, whereby Spencer works in Decaydance Records, Pete's - as in RL - music producing company. Complete AU, not a twist or what if, but still very very awesome. I love the little glimpse of normality which isn't very normal, and aside from GSF and Brendon/Spencer, I have a soft spot for Jon and Spencer, so I definitely loved how adorable this was.

In other news, LO is home, and I'm stuck at work! :( Not cool.

Ooh, Spencer Reid in the moodtheme! Wtf is it with me and guys with the name Spencer? Excepting your manno from what's-it-called, The Hills, of course.

Life throws me for a loop completely sometimes.

I'm watching the London Marathon on BBC2. I've seen people running after having open heart surgery twice, those who've been running from the very beginning of the marathon's life, random strangers helping each other across the finish line, people running in stars and as comic book heroes and The Stig, people running for mothers and brothers and children and in memory of them. There's a lady at the moment who's sacrificed her own finish time to wait just inside the end for her sister (a little over 20 minutes behind at this point, and still waiting) to catch up with her and cross the line together. 

It's absolutely insane, I look at politics and the economy and various different struggles going on in life at the moment, and everything seems so disheartening, so horrible. And then I see people like this, pushing themselves harder and harder for someone, and I am amazed at life, at humanity. At people. It's really inspiring. I don't even care how much of a sap or whatever that makes me. It's just crazy. This planet, huh?

I'm going to do a marathon like this someday. About 4 or 5 times the length of the Mini Marathon, but I will do it. Hold me to it, people! I'm going to do my part.

ETA: She's found her sister, at 3:53 hours. Congratulations to both!

Oh, also. My deepest sympathies to Tomás O'Leary. That was devestating to watch, the worst possible scenario to happen. I hope he comes back better and stronger for it, that injury at this time in particular has got to be heartbreaking. It's heartbreaking to supporters, I can't imagine how he's feeling.
