June 18th was also the third anniversary of the day Toy Story 3 came out, so obviously I had to watch that. I don't know why I do that to myself, though. As much as I love Toy Story 3 I really hate it. THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO GO TO ANDY'S KIDS, AND WOODY WAS SUPPOSED TO GO TO COLLEGE WITH ANDY! Old Prospector didn't know what he was talking about when he said Andy wasn't going to take Woody to college with him, because Andy was going to, only Woody had to ruin everything because he's stupid like that. And when they're all holding hands waiting to die. It's so sad. It makes me want to go brush my all my doll's hair and change their clothes and tell them how much I love them, and then hug all my stuffed animals. I didn't do that, though, because they're all set up in my closet and it would be a hassle putting them back. Sorry, I just really love the Toy Story movies and I have a lot of feelings.

As for the neighbours thing, I think it's nice to have them there. As long as you get on relatively well with them, it's nice to know that you can get a cup of sugar if you need it. Once they start making your life a little more miserable (mine seem to like to let me know what's happening on their tv) or getting too involved in your business, they can be undesirable.

With most of my neighbours, we say hello, know to alert us if someone appears to be climbing through our window, are willing to call an ambulance if one is ever needed, but aren't interested in what the argument was about the other night. That's how I am with them, and that's how I would like them to be with me.

You might want to skip to the next post as im thoroughly annoyed.

 

20 minutes waiting on the phone to find out whats happening with an order for important medical stuff as they didnt bother to phone back yesterday to find that after 5 weeks from the original order date they havent even bloody processed it. Despite having an internet receipt from the 16th May they also claim the order was done on the 29th May and the reason nothing has happened is because of company size. Best i can get is that they will look into it with the aim of getting it sent out as soon as possible as if they are doing me a favour. Well thanks for that. So bloody kind.

And the damn place came recommended by the NHS.

"Mairzy Doats"

An elderly lady I was working for a couple of years ago, just out of the blue began singing a little ditty.  I said, "What's that your singing?"

She laughed and said "Mairzy Doats!"

"Huh?" I said.

She proceeded to sing the whole song:

"Mairzy doats and dozy doats

and liddle lamzy divey...

A kiddley divey too, wooden shoe? "

 

Then she explained it:

Mares eat oats and does eat oats

and little lambs eat ivy...

a kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you?

Faded flowers, wait in a jar, till the evening is complete... complete... complete... complete...

Result! Felt slight munchies coming on, so opened the 6-pack of Nik-Naks I bought earlier ("knobbly, wacky sticks of corn" for those who don't know). 2x Rib'n'Saucy - present and correct. 2x Scampi'n'Lemon (which started my addiction many years ago) - present and correct. 2x Nice'n'Spicy - present and... no, wait, 1, 2, 3, 4! My second favourite flavour, and there's not 2 but 4! Mark is a very happy boy!

Just goes to show being forceful and angry on the phone gets things done. After phoning and having a major go at a medication company (see my above post 3 up) for having done nothing about my order for 5 weeks, 2 days later it arrives.

Have found out a whiskey company is planning to expand the number of warehouses they have by covering over 3 additional fields meaning they will be incredibly close to where i live, wrecking the place. Im gutted by this as we are currently surrounded by countryside and it will be altered resulting in high fences of barbed wire, a ring road for their trucks, and huge distillaries covering the landscape. I absolutely adore where i stay, been here 30 years, because we are in the middle of nowhere and now i find its all threatened and could be right next to an industrial area.

One of our neighbours found out about this as he is a journalist and is hoping to get our lane together to see what we can do to stop it, if anything. Hopefully we all will be and not just sit back and let it happen.

This really concerns me.

Anyone any helpful ideas?

Surely you must be able to speak to the council? If they're ruining the landscape and de-valuing your properties, I'd have thought you have a fairly strong case. Unless you have absolutely no say in what's built near your home, which just seems wrong.

We have three councillors. One has conflicting interests as he's on some board so wont, and cant, get involved; another is on holiday and the third is off somewhere so is not contactable.

Im trying not to think about it as there is nothing that can be done at this very moment. The deeds to what we own and what is allowable near us will be downloaded this week alongwith other odds and ends. We also might have bats in the trees which could stop them as supposedly bats are protected animals but there is the thought that to get around that issue the company might simply cut the trees down and then go "whoops! Shouldnt we have done that? Oh look at that, the bats are gone. Erm, about that building work...".

I wish you the best of luck, mmm. I too live in a heavily wooded suburban area and would feel gutted if this was happening to me.

Your situation brings to mind the Australian comedy film, The Castle. For those who have not seen it, please do. It is the only movie that actually made me stand and cheer at the end. Everyone I have shown it to has done the same.

Wow that's heavy. I myself live in the middle of the city, still in a pretty quiet street, but not ''surrounded by landscape'' so I don't fully understand how living like that is, but I do understand that what will happen really sucks. 

Can't you go out and organize some demonstration? Would that help? Signing a petition, going out with megaphones and banners? Tying yourselves to the trees? There must be some way to stop it or at least prevent it from becoming too bad.

We stay on a small lane outside of town with about 9 other people on it and not many of those will care one hoot. We will do what we can but to be honest if the council allow it then we will be screwed. It doesn't look good if out of 10 only 3 or 4 signed a petition. Also it will bring jobs to the area so few objections will be raised. Im trying not to think about it.

Mi casa es su casa, mmm. I live on a dead end road only 1/2 mile long (.8 kilometers) with only 4 houses.

If you can handle living peacefully in the middle of a forest on a dead end road surrounded by miles of trails for hiking, then you are most welcome my friend.

If they give us a million pound pay off im willing to move to somewhere hot, quiet and in the middle of nowhere. Otherwise not really. I wouldn't ever move into town.

I live in the middle of the countryside with the nearest shop a 15 minute walk away and love it. We overlook a loch on one side and the town is on the other, up a hill, with a wood down the end of a one way bumpy lane that taxis and lorries refuse to drive up. Its absolute bliss. They want to build on one side of the woods. Been here 30 years and im 32.

Thanks for the offer Zig, sounds perfect. Expect me to turn up around Christmas time. I'll bring you a present.

Of course. Apple are planning to release a whole load of Beatle memorabilia in the Autumn. How about an official Beatles cheese toastie cleaning kit? Perfect for when you drop your toastie on the floor.

Am currently doing DIY in and out of the house so iTunes is on random and occasionally tracks from the Bugsy Malone musical come on. Quite easily the greatest musical ive ever seen as I can watch it thru without getting so annoyed at people bursting into song for no reason whatsoever and doing spontaneous dances with their mates that are perfectly choreographed and in sync. If you haven't seen this piece of cinematic brilliance find yourself a spare 90 minutes, get some popcorn and a drink and enjoy. Its on youtube.

Does anyone know if the promo videos for Get Back and Don't Let Me Down have been on iTunes for a while or not (comments posted are dated 1st and 2nd of April so that could be when they were put up)? They're dated 2013 so its got a thought in my head of some sign towards the Let It Be movie - tho they are the same ones that came out with Let It Be Naked in 2003.
