Alan. I've not had the chance to hug someone since Wednesday.

Writer's Block: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

[Error: unknown template qotd]

It's not really a day of public note over here, I think if you asked folks about it they wouldn't in the main have a clue.

I have no kids of my own, the furkids don't count. I do have 6 nieces and nephews, and one grand-nephew though, and my hopes are that they all grow up to be strong of mind and body, develop to their full potential, and are happy with whatever path in life they choose.

Writer's Block: Dress up your Pet Day

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Um? What?

The cats would kill me if I tried to dress them up. Animals aren't humans and we shouldn't be dressing them up as if they were.

Writer's Block: Thank You Month

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Friday. That was the last time I was out of the house and spoke to someone. Unless you count the times I say 'Thank you.' in a sarcastic manner to the cats. Like at 4:30am this morning when Jenny Cat decided to wake me up.

Writer's Block: Fantastic plastic

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I could write a long post about this, and might well do later in my own journal, but for myself no, I'd never have plastic surgery. If I was involved in an accident and it was necessary to avoid disfigurement then that is a different matter.

Writer's Block: Winter vacation

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I'd have liked to have gotten the redecoration of my bedroom finished. That's not going to happen as I've pushed myself too hard in the run up to Christmas and am having an FMS flare and digestion problems. So everything is back on hold. Things like that will get done when I can. In the meantime I'll do some of the less physical stuff like update parts of the OS and utilities on my server.

Writer's Block: Santa Claus is coming to town

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I'm not awfully sure I ever really believed in Santa. Things like leaving sherry and a mince pie out for him were of course done as it was traditional.

I have to admit though that most of my childhood is just a vague blocked blur. So maybe I did at one time believe in him, or maybe not.

Writer's Block: Checking it twice

[Error: unknown template qotd]
My lifestyle automatically puts me on Santa's naughty list. That is unless he also indulges in the same things as me. (O.O)

Writer's Block: Career paths

[Error: unknown template qotd]
To a degree I already do it, except I currently don't get paid. I'd like to work on conservation projects, get paid, and not have to worry about my health limitations.

Writer's Block: Chicken soup

What's a cold?

Mostly I ignore them and carry on, unless it is really really bad. Then I'll resort to hot honey and lemming lemon.

Writer's Block: What’s on your mind?

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Feeding the cats.

They are going completely barmy, chasing each outher round the house, and occasionally sitting on my laptop, or biting my feet. They did wake me at 7:30a so maybe it is time that I did stir myself and feed them.

None. Lactose disagrees with me, and the non-dairy alternatives are just not the same, in my opinion.

Writer's Block: Black Friday

[Error: unknown template qotd]
A bag of kibble for the cats. Hows that for mundane? I'm just demonstrating how much under the thumb of our feline masters I am.

As for something not mundane, I bought a bottle of Snow Fairy, a pot of Jilted Elf, and a Space Girl bath bomb from Lush. A girl has to treat herself now and again.

Writer's Block: Family ties

[Error: unknown template qotd]
Not done anything with my flesh and blood family for years. Some of us are the black sheep, we just don't fit with their narrow definition of what life is about and how one should live their life, so are generally excluded from family events. Their loss not mine.

Writer's Block: Reading corner

[Error: unknown template qotd]
For light reading when travelling or winding down I go for fiction as it doesn't require a lot of attention.

Other times I'm just as likely to pick up non-fiction — frequently history texts, or sometimes politics/philosophy. Have you read any Aristotle or Plato recently?

Writer's Block: Instant replay

[Error: unknown template qotd]

My musical taste it too varied to choose a single song. Not only that, what I listen to is influenced by, and influences, my mood.

If all I could do was listen to a single song, I'd choose none. Even with my tinnitus there is still enough variety in the sounds of the world around me that I'd suffer no hardship in having no pre-recorded songs to listen to. That and the mind is a wonderful tool for making our own internal music.

Writer's Block: World Vegetarian Awareness Month

[Error: unknown template qotd]
I don't have what you could describe as a favourite vegetarian meal. I'm not mostly vegetarian by choice, but through circumstance. I do a damn good veg*n stirfry though.

On those rare occasions when I eat out vegetarian food tends to rely too much on dairy in some form or another. Me+dairy is just not happening. It's vary rare that I can find a conventional restaurant (and I'm not talking about fast rood places here) that does vegetarian food I can eat. Ethnic restaurants tend to be much better in this regard.
