Wow, I sounded like a real brat in my last post.

Okay, the good side of Chrismas! Beautiful necklace from my mum, as well as a new copy of Half Blood Prince (My dad took my first edition copy with him to Australia), a huge travel guide type book, a La Senza giftcard, a load of bath stuff and chocolate and some other odd and ends. From my aunt I got a waterstones giftcard and some new nailpolish (she knows me too well) and from my nan £50 and a new diary.

Had a good Christmas lunch (even though I don't eat turkey or most vegtables), my cousin didn't mock me too much and watched White Chrismas and Happy Feet with whole family. Okay, so I was reading Fables during White Christmas. It might me my mum's favourite, but it's not mine.

Came home, and got started on SGA bigbang and Yuletide.

Actually, only had one duff present this year. My dad? Sent me Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Er, no, Dad. Ignoring the fact my mum already has a copy, somehow I don't think it's going to help us communicate better, given you seem quite happy to ignore my feelings and thoughts and blame this whole mess on me.

Okay, I'm cool, I'm chilled. Going back to Yuletide now. Should keep me busy for the rest of the night.
safekh_aubi: (WTF)

My family is a bloody nightmare! The one thing on telly I was looking forward to this Chrismas was Doctor Who. They all knew this. What does my eldest cousin do, while Doctor Who was on? Play with his puppy and make balloon animals right next to me! I miss almost all the sound from the first ten minutes! Then once he had left , my mum, my aunt and my nan start talking over the rest of the episode!

The one that really bothers, me, though, is that no one called my cousin out on it. If it had been me, I would have got in so much trouble. Just because he's older...

Thank the gods I recorded Doctor Who at home.
safekh_aubi: (Shit)

Bloody Hell. I've just got in from work. Work that finished at five. It's now gone eight. Today started off cold, with a small bit of hail. Than, around lunch time it began to rain. Then sleet. Then snow. And snow. And snow. Because I travel by public transport, my boss let me go an hour early. I get to the bus stop, and find oout that the buses arn't running due to the fact that they can't drive in the snowy-icy slush that it covering the roads. I turn around and go back to work.

Eventually, one of my colleges manages to get her car going and gives me a lift home. but still... The main road is packed. People are just abandoning their cars in the road. Saw a brand new BMW, just left there, in the middle of the road. My mum is stuck one said main road, at what is normally 20mins away from home. She's going to be lucky to get home tonight before eleven.

This is Southen England. We are not built for this weather! And I'm bloody freezing! If it is like this tomorrow, I'm not going to work, no way. Just walking down mu cul-de-sac was dangerous. Remember when I said I liked snow? Yeah, not so much now.
safekh_aubi: (Flowers)
So, not 8 inches of snow, more like two. Still did have my hospital appointment, though. Totally not my fault! The dentist guy was stuck in London. I'm gonna have this brace forever at this rate.

I keep thinking tomorrow's Sunday, and I don't have to go to work. Bah.

[EDIT: Why won't this supid entry work? This is about the 4th time I've edited it]
safekh_aubi: (Default)
It's snowing! Like, proper snow that's settling and everything and it's not stopping! We're supposed to get up to eight inches here. Eight inches! I've never seen that much snow here in England before! We might even get a white christmas. I've never had a white christmas before! That would be so cool!

Wait... *inner 5 year old deflates* I've got to go to Guildford tomorrow, for my teeth. By train. I've already missed one appointment already, I can't miss this one.

I discovered two things today:

1) I act like a five year old when it's snows. Seriouly, I had this huge grin on my face the entire time it was snowing, and I wanted so much to run out and play in it. Pity I was at work at the time. Speaking of work...

2)I pretty much know all the lyrics to Bohiemen Rhapsody off by heart, without prompt. Given my terrible memory, that's pretty damn good. Yes, I was THAT bored today that I sat there and wrote them all out. No one wants to see a personal banker for anything good around this time of year and sitting right by the door, I was bloody freezing. Stupid heating not working propery. Stupid managers, stealing my little heater.

No reply from my Dad yet. I never actually thought he'd take me seriously when I said don't contact me again. No money yet, either.
safekh_aubi: (Free)
I gave my father one last chance to have a relationship with me. after he was exceptionally rude and insulting to me, not to mention lieing to me, I sent him an email telling him how I feel and and ended it with 'Frankly, Dad, if that is the way you are going to treat me, then I’m not sure I want a relationship with you. I will always love you, but right at this moment I’m not sure you are the man I always thought you were.'

He sends this back:

Wow, some spine at last, you still have not told me what you plan to do with your money?

I dare because I’m your Dad, I think you say tomato and I say tomayto, read the emails again in a day or so when you have calmed down.

Now go tidy your room.


He thinks I'm joking. He thinks I'm fucking JOKING?!

My reply?

Did you actually read my email? I am not joking about this. And it is really none of your business what I plan to do with the money, Just, please, have it transfered to me as soon as possible.

Nevermind, you clearly don't care about what I think or feel. If this is going to be your attitude, please don't contact me again, unless it is to do with the money that is owed to me.

I think I just disowned my father. God, I really, really, don't know how I feel about this. One the one hand, he bloody well deserves it, after the shit he has put me through all my life, and especially the past two weeks. On the other hand, he's my Dad.

I don't know what to think.

I'm gonna go read something now, take my mind off of it.

I have had the Bleach theme song stuck in my head. All. Fraking. Day. Of course, it's in Japanese, so I can't really sing it, which is what I normally do when I have a song stuck in my head. Argh!

Yeah, I brought the Season 1 Boxset from HMV yesterday. Only £15. Bargin, I thought. I've watched 8 episodes already and am taking a great effort to avoid spoilers, instead of diving into fandom head first. I... will... resist...

Just checked wikipedia. There's 13 seasons... *sob* Bye bye incentive for the next 6 months.
But, the English dub has only been released up until Season 4. I'm not sure what's worse, spending all my money on a series at once, or having to wait for each release.

Work Christmas do last night, and Work Quiz night the night before. Yes, I do sometimes have a social life! We came forth, but in our defence, we did have the smallest team (5 compared to the other teams 7 or 8) AND we were the reigning champions. Boo...

One of the fun things about being the only one not to drink (I don't touch alchohol at all)? You get to see everyone acting rediculously drunk, and remember it all in the morning. No hangover, either. Oh, there are going to be some sore heads tomorrow. (Or later today. I need to start getting to sleep earlier)

I have got to stop watching films about WWII. Seriously, every time, I cry buckets!

Just watched Grave of the Fireflies, and am still sniffling 40 minuets later. Anyone who thinks that animation is just for kids? Er, no. At least not the films I've been watching recently. (I've discovered anime. Be afraid, bank account, be very afraid. I've seen Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and now Grave of the Fireflies, with Ghost in the Shell ready to watch)

Situation with my dad? I am literally one email away from never speaking to the lying SOB again. Seriously, I'm just trying to figure out how to word it. I'll do a full post on it later.

Yeah, I'm going back to snivelling in my corner now.
safekh_aubi: (Free)

So this whole palaver with my Dad has started up again.

Cut for length and language... )

safekh_aubi: (Default)
So, back earlier than expected, but still...


I now have six new tops, a new corset, a new coat, new hair sticks, new pendent, four new graphic novels, a new Pern novel, the DVD of Spirited Away, new socks and a small adorably soft Eeyore.


And part of my mum's christmas present.

One thing I learned? I should not be allowed into Forbiden Planet with large sums of money. I spent £50 there alone.

Approx. spent today, including train fare, underground and food? £250.

Yeah, fun, but not to be done too often, otherwise I won't be able to afford my rent.

Damn it, must stop staying up so late reading fanfiction! I'm blaming [profile] lizardbeth_j , posting the next part of Not All That We Are just before I go to bed!

I have no willpower! Now, sleep time, or else you'll wandering around London like a zombie!

You are an Airbender!


The Sky Bison taught the first airbenders how to bend the air around them. While they cannot fly, airbenders can soar in the air for long distances by using a glider. Most important to airbenders is the concept of non-aggression. When they fight, they do not attack but defend themselves through circular movements that confuse their opponents.

Which Element do you Bend?

Well, that was no big suprise. I've know that I'm Air since I started getting into fantasy and paganism about, oooh, 6 years ago, despite my love of fire (closet pyromanic here).

London tomorrow! YAY YAY YAY YAY! Just hope the weather is better than today, otherwise I'm gonna get soaked. Oh well, I'll take a umbrella with me.

Camden Market! Covent Garden! LONDON!

safekh_aubi: (Default)
So. Dad didn't call. Again.

Sometimes I don't know why I bother.


Nevermind, think about next week. Am going shopping in London on tuesday. First time going up to London completely on my own, so should be interesting. Not difficult hopefully, as for about the past five years, I've been to one leading and navigating all the trips I've taken up there, so... (Mother and friends can't read maps to save their lives.) No, seriously, when I went to Paris earlier this year? I did all the route planning, and when me and my friend got spit up, I got back to hotel room in less than an hour, while she took three hours, travelling all over the city. It was kinda stupid really. We were getting the metro to this club we read about, and I got off at the right station, and she didn't. Trouble was, that was one of the last metro trains. Not the stupidest thing that happened on the trip, however. I have learned never go to a club with just one other friend, especially when you don't drink anything, and she gets completely hammered. I wanted to go home, she didn't, I ended up screaming at her in the loos while she just stood there and giggled, then I stormed off back to the hotel, leaving her there. Yeah, not my most stella moment.

Fun night last night.

There I am, watching the new Star Trek on DVD before going to bed. I'd just gotten to the final battle, where the Enterprise has its Big Damn Gunship moment, when the phone rings.

Phone calls at 2330? Never a good thing.

My aunt and youngest cousin were involved in a car accident last night, where a minibus ran a red light and smashed into the driver's side of their car. My cousin was fine, apart from shock, but we were quite concerned about my aunt, as she had pain in her neck and spine, and had to have X-Rays and CT scans. So, me and my mum rushed over to the A&E, where we spent the next two and half hours waiting for news. If wasn't for the fact that both me and my mum had work today, we would have stayed even later. Luckly, it seems that my aunt wasn't badly injured and was discharged a few hours after we left. Still, not a plesent way to spend the night.

Work was, to be frank, shit today. Well, at least the morning was. the PBs were all fully booked, and it seemed that all complaints decieded to come in a once, as well as an appointment that was believed to be cancelled, and another one had taken it's place. Thank god we has someone over from another branch doing training and who was willing to help out. Of course, being tired and irratible didn;t help, and the fact that my lunch kept being pushed back didn't help. First it was eleven, my normal tine, then it was 1130, then it was 1230, but of course by this time we were running late, and I didn't go until 1240. This might not seem like late, but when it's 1 hour 40 mins after you've been going for most of the past year, you tend to get a bit hungry. Also remembered why I havn't had melted chedder since having my brace fitted. Yeah, it got stuck everywhere.

Got home, to discover, that the entire family had congrigated and my aunt's for take out, barring me because I lost my phone charger and didn't get the message. Still had take out, though. Left enough for tomorrow was well.

Then got a phone call from my dad, more to confirm that I would be free tomorrow night for a long phone call. The one thing he did tell me? Jester, his dog, one of the few dogs I've ever felt truly comfortable with? Died in a car accient.

Someone up there clearly hates me.

I'm just gonna read some (more) Avatar fic before going to bed. Finally finished ther series on Sunday. Now I feel no guilt in reading spoiler fanfic. (Which I've been doing sine I was at aroung mid-season 1, so yeah...)

safekh_aubi: (Wanda Reality)
So, I'm an idiot.

At work, we have this thing where if you work Saturday, you get a day off during the week, called a Non Work Day, or NWD. We usually alternate one week on one week off. Now, I knew that this week I was working Saturday, but stupidly forgot to check the work list for when my NWD was. I though, I'll check when I get in today, it's never on Mondays. So I get up early, I got to work and on the of chance, while waiting for the safe to open, I check the list. You can guess what it said.

Yep, today was my NWD. So, feeling an idiot, I turn around and go back home.

At least I went in on a day I had off, rather than not go in on a day I'm ment to. The thing is, the best thing about NWD, apart from having the house to myself all day? The lie-in. Bah!

Spent the day watching Avatar: The Last Airbender instead. I watched 15 episodes today. That's almost 6 hours! Only 14 left! Seriously, I can't remember when I fell for a fandom so fast. However, I was kinda predisposed to liking it. Especially Zuko. Angsty, good looking guy with pyrokinetic abilities?

What, I have a type, okay?

But it also has action, adventure, kick-arse fight scenes, cool mythos, a snarky bad-ass normal (Sokka and Zuko are tied for being my favorite, followed closly by Toph, Azula and pretty much the rest of the whole damn cast), strong sibling relations, messed up sibling relations, Action girls, Hoyay,Foeyay, Lesyay, seriously, the list just keeps going on.

Man, why can't all kids cartoons be like this? Might be willing to pay extra for the kids channels on Sky.

I'm cursed when it comes to shipping canon couples.

Spoilers for Torchwood, BSG, SG1, X-Men, Robin Hood and Primeval )

Yes, once again I suck at keeping this updated. Not much has happened, so...

Do have a party on Saterday, tho. It's only at the Ag, but it is fancy dress. The theme is dead celebraties. I'm going as Audrey Hepburn, at the sugestion of my friend, and she's going as Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra. Much better than our orginal ideas of Sid Vicious and Freddy Mercury. (You can tell our music taste right there) Should be interesting. I wonder how many will come as Michael Jackson?
safekh_aubi: (Default)
Yeah, like I said earlier. I suck at keeping this updated.

Life is dull at the moment. Work is slow, I seem to have lost all communication with my friends (All my fault, 'm 'fraid) and, well, nothing's really going on.

I have been spending way too much money on books and comics, though. Since the last post, I've bought the next three Ultimate X-Men (14, 15 and 16); Vol. 2 and 3 of Astonishing X-Men; Decimation: X-Men - The Day After; Battle Royale; Stargate SG1: Hydra; The Tiger Warrior; Tolkien's The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun; The Ancients In Their Own Words and Alan Lee's The Lord Of the Rings Sketchbook, which I used my Waterstone's points on, so got six pounds off. Go me! I wonder how much it would have been if I got it on Amazon?

Huh. Only about a pound cheaper than what I got if for. And the other large hardback, The Ancients In Their Own Words, is twice the price I paid for it. Thank the gods for cheap bookshops.

Almost forgot, ordered Days of Future Present last night. Second hand, so I'm hoping that it'll be here tomorrow. Despite having a load of prose novels to read, I am really addicted to comic books, and feel bored if I don't have a new one to read. Given I go through them like wildfire, I'm spending way too much money on them. In the three months or so since this the 'addiction' started, I have bought over thirty trade paperbacks. I would buy the actual comics, since WHSmiths actually stock them, but they're about three years behind. Literally, I picked up the most recent issue to day to flick throught it, and it was the second part of Torn, realised back in 2006.

Saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine about two weeks ago. While it wasn;t a perfect film (Does such thing exist?) I did find it enjoyable. Then, my knowledge of comic canon isn't the brilliant, so I was able to watch is a movie, not an adaptation, as it were.

Watched all of one more episode of Primeval, but that one episode was enough to send me straight to Deniel. If you sollow the series, I'm sure you know what I mean.

Supernatural Finale tonight! Eeeeeeee!!!!
safekh_aubi: (Default)
Someone please tell my cat that chocolate ice cream is for humans, not cats.

I love bank holidays. Spent the day sneaking on the computer when I was ment to be doing my room. Also, four day week. Yay!

Can't arsed to say anything else. Will post more next time.
safekh_aubi: (Default)
So, my Dad finally made contact with me. Only a week later that he was supposed to.

Okay, okay, so he had some stuff going on (Grandad in hospital and some rather messy legal business at work) but still! A week to call me! He didn't even have the guts to call me first. He called Mum yesterday and didn't even ask to speak to me. Way to go, Dad! And he's going back to Oz tomorrow. He's back in three weeks, but that doesn't negate the fact I've seen for less that an hour this time.

Okay, I'm chilled, I'm cool.

Work has been so slow this week. With all the good weather, no one's been cming in to the bank. Doesn't help I'm on the midget till as well. Small, cramped, hard to see the queue and I have to take Business and Premier customers as priority. That means I get the snooty ones and the ones that'll give me no leads. I onnly managed three future and one sweep last week. Since I'm ment to do ten a week minimum, that's not good. Still, that sweep got over 7000 points of value, so they can't really complain (a single seller's target per week in 6000) plus I got loads of appoinments in the past couple of weeks (combinding me co-ordinating plus ISA season equals lots of appointments).

Comics arrived earlier this week. Read all of them barring AoA in about two days (working my way through is now). Liked House of M and Astonishing X-Men (will definatly be getting vol. 2 next time), LOVED Marvel 1602, but I already thought I would before I bought it. Combind Neil Gaimen with 17th century versions of 60's Marvel heroes? Sounds about as near damn perfect for me as it gets.

Am still way behind on Primeval. Got three episodes to watch now. On the plus side, am now up to date with Supernatural. Can't wait until next weeks episode!

Also, X-Men Origins: Wolverine out this week. I've got Thursday off, so I'm gonna go and see it then. By myself, unfortuatly. but with Dad in Oz, I've got no one to go see my geeky films with. On that note, I didn't even know they were making a film of Angels and Demons 'till I saw an ad for it. Trying to convince my Mum to see it with me. I'm not all that keen on going to the cinema on my own.

Back to fanfic now. I only have about half an hour before I need to go to sleep. (Yes, I sleep late. I'm still a teenager, even if for only a year and a bit, I'm allowed)
