I have the lurgy  
The cold that's been threatening since Asylum has kicked in, I spent all day yesterday going from bed to the throw-covered couch to bed again. It was a really pretty day yesterday and I was supposed to be spending some time with the kids in their garden - which I love doing. When else can a *mumblemumble* year old get to play swing ball without a) being drunk; or, b) looking like an idiot?

But alas, I was left snuffling and coughing and generally feeling like death warmed up.

Babysat for them on Saturday though - eventually finding out at 5 that I was needed at 6 (and could I stop and buy some things for dinner on my way up the road...). My sister's an hilarious drunk. She doesn't go out a lot anymore, and she's not been drunk for years. She can't handle her drink any more. It's hilarious. Oh, and apparently my brother in law doesn't understand how I could have staffed at the convention because he just doesn't see me as anything other than Sis' quiet little sister. And that's my problem how? (That's not completely true actually, he sees me as having an impressive cleavage as well - to the extent where I don't wear v-necks when I go to their house any more.)

I couldn't get online on Saturday at all so I've had to default on my spring_with_xan day, which sucks. Thanks though for your prompts on Friday - I'll be having a go at them soon in an attempt to make up for it!

Right, I'm aware right now that I'm snappy and irritable and finding the little things annoying so I'm going to go have a cup of tea and actually do some work.

eta work rant I will be the only supervisor in on Wednesday and Thursday.

Wednesday is apparently because one of the other women has child care difficulties and the other is on some course somewhere in England. (Which would be believable if I hadn't heard the child care woman having a loud personal phone call in which she said "Well I'll just tell them I can't get child care then...")

Thursday? There's no excuse. Child care woman doesn't work Thursdays and the other one still decided that it would be fine for her to take leave that day. So... wenchpixie? I'll have to be in work by nine all week this week. Balls.

Also? Coriander tastes like soap. Marks & Sparks? If you put it in a chicken salad I will be able to taste it, so why don't you put it on the damn label so I don't buy it? (Coriander is silantro, btw, I'm spelling that phonetically 'cause I've never seen it written down, what with living on the civilised side of the Atlantic... *g* - Cilantro - thanks geminilove_ca!)

Dunno why I missed that post - the comm's on my default as well (one of the few comms that still is it has to be said!). I just went to see what all the fuss is about...


The guys aren't splitting up, Steve said in Chicago (I think it was - it was before he came over to the UK anyway) that he would still be playing with Chris, but he had his own stuff to do as well. It seems fairly amicable to me - Steve's got his own albums and tours and things, and so does Kane (still not keen on calling them Christian Kane, not because of anything personal but Chris has always been Chris to me since I met him. His full name seems alien).

Hopefully it'll all die down a bit by the time the Kane album's released anyway...

It's on my mobile view for some reason, although I don't know why 'cause it doesn't exactly clog up my fpage!

See, that's what I've been thinking about it, but it just seems that people are wanting to make more out of it and it's a little ridiculous. And they're always going to be Kane, I'm sorry but there's no way in hell I'll be calling them Christian Kane, it's just strange. It'll be weird having it written on the new album... I completely understand why it's been changed, I just can't seem to get used to it. Apparently Kane is a big black rapper guy, at least according to my itunes, it's changed the album artwork. So I get why they've done it.

The OP there seems a tad bit touchy - not one of the comments I've seen are an attack on her, and yet she's claiming they read as such? Maybe on first glance but then people have said they were calling bullshit on the MySpace response not her. (Which I get, 'cause the MySpace people? not exactly the sharpest tools in the box!)

I didn't know that about the rapper dude - I knew there was a Dutch (I think?) band and an Australian one called Kane in the past (Last.FM gets the Aussie one mixed up with our boys all the time), so that makes even more sense now.

Yeah, all of the comments that could be taken out of context have been explained as not being aimed towards her, so I don't really see the problem, it's just the whole everyone making more out of it thing again.

I don't know if the rapper's name is actually Kane, just that that's what iTunes decided to put on my iPod! It could just have been iTunes being possessed again. Tried to google image it to see if I could find it on the net, but no luck. There's a band called Danity Kane too (although they're 5 women), so it does make sense.

I'm thinking the OP spends most of her time on Emo!Space anyway, and doesn't really get what LJ comms are about. Which is surprising really since she chose to share the news with one.

iTunes is scary....

It's evil, for some reason I just logged in to it to check mine, but I'm logged out again now so all is good... I think she thought that she was doing everyone a favour, but no one's thanked her for it so she's taken it personally. She'll know better for next time.

iTunes is very scary. It doesn't like to update my iPod either, but I need to update my playlists soon so I'll make it work properly...
