Your dominant hues are green and yellow. There's no doubt about the fact that you think with your head, but you don't want to be seen as boring and want people to know about your adventurous streak now and again.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.

Writer's Block: Need for Speed!

Do you have a "dream car"? If you had money to spare, would you buy a new car? If so, would you be more likely to get an eco-friendly vehicle, a vintage model, or a luxury sportscar?

My Dream Car?

A Mini. With a mp3 compatible stereo and a coffee cup holder at the right height to hold mugs, cups and drinks containers. It would be blue, or black, and fast. It would be sporty and on the roof, it would be checkerboard or the Union Jack. And on the driver's side door, just by the handle, it would say, "Ri~"

And it would be glorious...

Writer's Block: What I did for Education

Have you ever made an important life decision (such as where to work or attend school) based on purely emotional factors, even though you knew it was not the best choice for you? Would you do it again?

Yes, I have.

My decision to leave Sleaford's St George's and to move to Grantham.

Sometimes, I think that it wasn't the best choice at all, but in others... It really given a sense of freedom and more movement in life. I feel alive.  I feel like I could achieve something - when I was at St George's I was in this state of suspension. There was no more room to move, no more room to do anything more than survive. I lived day to day and drifted through life.

Yes, that's easy. Yes, that's easier than I have it now.

But I'm alive. I'm awake, and functioning beyond what is normal. I can feel and breathe and taste the sucess and the emotion now. I can have achievements and failures and I can function enjoyably. I can have a boyfriend if I want it, and not have to worry about people who don't like me.

I can't believe it came down to it, though. It suddenly happened - it was like a sudden sideways move; seriously unplanned. I had entertained thoughts of it in the past, but not really for that academic year and then; it happened.

I was sat in English and my English teacher was telling us to get out the work she set the previous day. Twenty five questions, and an essay plus a comparasion piece. I couldn't feel anything, that day. It was just... stuck. And I hadn't done it, hadn't felt any sense of drive or need to do it. So I hadn't. It was just too much in one evening, despite the fact that the lessons were less than twenty four hours apart, plus other teachers were giving us homework as well. And she started on about how she expected a task to be set'n'done and how it was important for it to be done the way she wanted.

She wasn't a very passionate teacher. She just... taught the book. She didn't seem to deliver any sense of vibrancy or drama or even joy. She could have been teaching the meaning of life and you wouldn't know it from her tone of voice and depressive state. There was no drive, no passion or need to be alive really. She did activities but they were dicatated by the book. You could just tell that the work book said, "For Starter Activity, divide learners into pairs and do Card Sorting Game 3.2. (pack provided in Activity folder)". You knew that's what it essentially said and it really didn't mean much to anybody when all was said and done.

Anyway she was getting frustated because only about three people had done the work she set. And she sent all of us out, to go and complete the work and to come back only when it was done. And inside, I could feel it building and buidling and multiplying and creating the feeling of oppression. I could feel how angry I was getting.

I left.

I don't think I even signed out, I just left the site. Rebecca was walking beside me, and I was furious. Seeing red furious. Apparently, I was just not really there, I was in my own little world, ranting and raving. Went to my mum's work place and got her to take me home. I can remember that bit, just walked into her office, and said -

"I'd like to go home now, please.".

Went home and that day started making phone calls to other places. Didn't care about anything else - just wanted out of there. And I did - got a call the next week for an interview to Grantham and hey ho, here I am.

In the end, I just slammed the door on that part of my life, and turned around to face the future. Regardless of what it could hold.

And I'd do it again, in a heartbeat.

Before The Christmas Hols, I Took These Out Of The Daily Mail

Read this –

Last week I told you about the group of students refused a bottle of wine and a packet of candles for a birthday cake for a party by the Warwick branch of M&S because only five out of six could prove they were over eighteen.

It gets siller.

Peter O’Brien writes to tell me that his daughter and her partner, both over the age of eighteen, were told they could not buy a bottle of vanilla essence from Waitrose in Buxton, Derbyshire because only one of them had proof of identity. Vanilla Essence has apparently one percent alcohol in it, and each bottle contains enough to fill about one to two thimbles.

But as far as the cake police are concerned you just can’t be too careful.

There was also this,

“Back in 2005, I wrote a spoof account of the Battle of Trafalgar, imagining it being fought under modern elf’n’safety conditions.

It was inspired by a newspaper photograph of an actor playing Nelson in a 200th anniversary re-enactment being forced to wear a life jacket over his 19th Century admiral’s uniform and has been doing the rounds on the internet ever since.

At the time, it was supposed to be a joke. Little did I imagine that four short year later, the Royal Navy would refuse to rescues a couple of British hostages hijacked at sea off Somalia because someone might get hurt.

Or than any Somali pirate wounded or captured would be entitled to seek asylum in Britain and could sue for damages under the ‘Human Rites Act’

Sometimes, even I can’t make it up.”

Guess what? Inflation is below zero, but the council tax is up three percent.

A band D house which pays around £1400 per year will now be expected to pay £1500 a year, but lovely government says that pensioners and other low in come families included in the general population were in the rise.

But get this – a typical band D house in the UK, in 1997, paid just £688 per year in Council Tax. Now it’s risen to over 110% more to £1414 per year.

I dunno about you, but Daniel Martin and I seem to believe it’s extortionate.

For a person of pensionable age in a single occupancy house it’s £96 pounds per week For a married couple it’s about £153 per week. For a married couple that’s just under a full weeks pension and for a single person it’s about one week, three days. Completely. Gone. Can’t use that money for anything else. If you need to pay rent, that can be hundreds of pounds when you throw in water, electricity, food, clothing and travel costs.

Our government?

Apparently believes in extorting the most out of the elderly and the poor.

And another round – More than 1,000 bankers are paid more than £1 million per year but we have no idea who because the government won’t make the banks name and shame. Instead, the banks must tell how many of their staff receives such monies, but won’t be required to name names.

Lucky for them, or I’d be demanding some of that back in my tax cuts when I’m older.

And oh yes, here we go again – “Aristocrat who plundered £1.6 million to pay for gold clubs, fine wines and school fees escapes prison.”

JOY!

The Honourable Jonathan Davies, 65, plundered one point six million from the fund set up by his grandfather. The charity ,which helped a host of causes including caring for Bosnian War orphans, has collapsed because of his Dishonesty.

At Southwark Crown court yesterday, Judge James Wadsworth sentenced the former investment banker to two years in jail but suspended the term for two years. The judge told Davies, who admitted ten counts of theft, he could take the exceptional course because of his poor health, his guilty pleas and the fact it was unlikely he would commit another offence of dishonesty.

Davies is bankrupt and will not have to repay a penny.

And just to round of a fantastic day in the news – A trusted uncle stole £315,000 from the charity of bladerunner girl. It was, basically, a charity set up to help her live her life after she lost arms and legs to meningitis and got them replaced with the epically awesome bladerunner systems Paralympics athletes use since the NHS ones were crap.

Excellent.

There’s nothing better in the world than the smell of fresh bastard robbing from the ill, the poor and the young.
