I stayed up too late last night posting on an anti-RIC FB page. I didn't think I was arguing, but the moderator seemed to think it was. The general gist is that they posted a link to a poll someone had made saying 'Do you prefer the look of a circumcised or uncircumcised penis?'. I thought that was pretty awful. If you assume that most people who oppose circumcision consider it to be mutilation, and most people who are pro-circumcision consider the foreskin to be a birth defect, HOW is it fair to claim one or the other is ugly? Change the word circumcision to 'cleft lip' (as an example of a birth defect, talking merely of looks), and you've just given your opinion on how ugly a person is. Nice. Not only that, but it's hypocritical for someone anti-RIC to talk about preference of how it looks, because, when someone says they did it for aesthetic reasons (preference, to look like Dad etc), everybody's all over it saying "That's a terrible reason to do it". So what. The. Shit.

Anyway, they said they'll continue to post links to such polls. Yes, yes, let's call all men ugly because we have differing opinions. UGH!

I just joined that Top Cashback site that's advertised on telly. It's similar in function to the Nectar eStores site- you just visit the site first, select the shop you want to use, then buy what you need as usual. Then you get the comission from the retailer.

That's my referral code. Take a look, I'm surprised actually, it's above board and been in The Guardian and on the BBC. If you join after using my referral code, I get £5 which would be really bloody useful right now.

New items up for sale.

Is all.

Edit: Owwhh, why don't people get Facebook? I asked if people wouldn't mind 'liking', but wasn't explicit enough to say THE PAGE, not this status...

Finally, a question I like!

I sometimes find it difficult to separate the music from the lyrics. Sometimes it's hard to say what it is that's made such an impression.

I can only think of one from Muse's Map of the Problematique. "I can't get it right since I met you". Which I can't relate to really. But I think that with the music gives an aching feeling, a hopeless feeling. I like hopeless lyrics. I don't like hopeful lyrics. I'm disappointed by hopeful lyrics.

Oh, I thought of another. It's not so much the lyrics as their relation to the rest of the song. It's Easyworld's Junkies and Whores. The song goes on to tell of a relationship doomed to fail over and and over again. And the singer is pouring his heart out to his partner (It's all You, You're, Your, We). The music's emotional. And at the end of the song, you feel the person must be drained, and his last words are, "You sleep so still, you'll sleep through everything". His partner was asleep the whole time. Had he the courage to say these things while she was awake they could be saved.

I also like Easyworld's Me. It tells of two friends who crossed the line between friends and partners. The singer is downstairs in the kitchen wondering if their friendship's ruined and what his friend, or girlfriend, is doing. He's supposed to be making a drink. The last line is "A melancholic sad reminder. The kettle boiled an hour ago". He's been too afraid and too busy thinking. It's hardly Ivor Novello stuff but it's the banality of it that gets me. And the way it just stops and he has to face the music after he's been hiding behind it.

I bet I'll think of at least ten more later. And I'll wonder how I could have forgotten.

Edit: Deacon Blue's Your Town. Again, probably the music that makes me love it but it's a dark song and I like to pretend it's a song about a failed relationship. I know it's not about that but la la la, I'm not listening.

Pickled octopus tentacle. Was while I was on watch in the SCC. I initially refused to try it on the grounds of liking octupi very much. But I was afraid I was looking a but girly so I reluctantly agreed. Was made all the more disgusting because the Chief said it was its toenail. Urgh.

Although I'm quite sure it's a piss-take, this definitely takes the prize for worst Writer's Block ever. Was this SERIOUSLY the most scintillating of the questions to choose from?

When I was younger I'd have very frequently recurring dreams about escalators. They were never just ordinary escalators though. They'd be running too fast or with enormous stairs or incredibly steep. Never did I dream about a normal or easy one. I read somewhere it's supposed to symbolise one's struggle to achieve a goal.

I'm certain it wasn't just Britain that didn't call the 80s that.

The last decade would surely have been the information decade. This decade? We're only three months in, give it chance.

I think they must mean marriage certificate or just marriage. A licence to marry is not the same as a certificate of marriage. Another stupid question.

Bryn's got this new thing where he sits on your lap and keeps treading his feet on the sofa super fast and watches them with great interest. I think it's the stickiness of the leather and the noise.

I'm sitting on the floor in Bryn's room hoping he will entertain hself in his cot because my back's sore from holding him all day.

We're going to Betws-y-Coed tomorrow, all being well. Matt needs a new Nuptse jacket.

Matt's going to the gym. The baby is quiet... But for how much longer? Oi! That's my car! Bloody pikey boyfriend. I've a good mind to steal his.

I saw the doctor. She scrutinized my face and said I looked brighter 'or is it wishful thinking?' I said I feel better. I felt better last time though. Generally. I do remember what it is to be down so I know I'm fine. What I wouldn't turn my nose up at would be the chance to see a counsellor or something. Don't know why. It's not like they'd be able to change anything or feed Bryn or stop me crying over breastfeeding posters on pharmacy walls. Anyway, she gave me the OCP. Same one as last time. I still have one pack from last time so I WISH I'd have started taking it when my period started because now we still can't have sex. It's been bloody months.

I have to take my iPod out of its case to type properly. It automatically puts apostrophes on wordslike didn't. It also does it with words like its, as in the posessive, so istill have to be on the ball and take it out. So it won't make me too lazy.

Now Bryn's quiet and I can use this, I ought to write Birth Story Part Two - Ward A5. Yeah. Let's.

This doesn't make any sense. I need my partner to help me conceive a child. So yeah, it would be more than a consideration. It would be a necessity. And I can't conceive a child without me either. 

I'd tell my best friend to wind her neck in and stop getting involved in reproductive decisions. Or to sort out her grammar.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Snapdragon was the name of a rather fetching ddraig goch on a Welsh BBC children's website. I liked him and took his name. The 666 because Snapdragon was taken and I couldn't think of any other significant number apart from my year of birth. Wish I could get rid of it now though, looks stupid.
