One of our chickens died today.

Rest in peace, Poppy. heartheartheart

Losing a pet is hard, they seem to understand us in a way humans can't. Sending love to you and your family, Fiddy. heartheartheart

I do apologise, @50yearslate. I thought the line, there was a Nasty cackle, and it had been posted. Had you put it in RIP, where most pets go, would never have crossed my mind. I wasn't thinking of it as a pet, and am sorry.

Of course, where I'm sitting now, just a mile or two that way <-- (the arrow should be pointing left) is Orpington, where I was grew and raised (I live about a twenty minute walk from childhood home), where the Buff Orpington was first bred by William Cook in the 19th Century, one of two variations on the Black Orpington, the other being the Lavender Orpington.

Again, my most humble apologies.

It’s ok. I guess that could be confusing. I just didn’t want to put it in RIP because Holey had just posted in there and I felt that it wouldn’t be appropriate.

Sorry to hear about your chicken @50yearslate. Most of the people in my family have big enough yards to have multiple roosts. I can't because I live between a river and a creek and the local critters come wandering into the neighborhood almost every night. At Thanksgiving some of the little kids decided to feed the chickens their salad. The chickens got mad and started pecking at the screen for their usual snack of raisins.

I was also told that one of her cousins was going to come at some point to say goodbye.

Now, I’ve been able to say, for the last 17 years and 11 months of my life, that I’m an only child with no cousins. And suddenly, this relative I just met tells me that he is in fact my grandmother’s son, when she had an affair during uni… and that I do, in fact, have a cousin – though you could argue she's actually a half-cousin.

That’s kind of changed a few things in my life. But life goes on (la-la-la-la life goes on!)

My condolences @The Hole Got Fixed. I lost both of my grandmas years ago, but I still hold them close to my heart. They really cared for me (above and beyond) heart

By coincidence there was a news report this weekend regarding the genetic genealogy companies. They surveyed the companies and found that over 25% of the findings contained a surprise to the subject. They have had to give special training to their customer service staff to provide the sensitive counseling required to help people cope. One lady is a middle child of 5 and found out her mother could not be her biological one. Her biological mom was in the database, but everyone involved had already passed away. She hired a private detective who found that her biological mother had worked for her dad's grocery store for 2 days in the 40s. The lady has started a support group for folks in similar situations. That generation used a lot of secrets to hide their sexuality. When my dad was experiencing a slow death from Parkinson's desease, he told me their was a family secret but it was too painful to reveal. I must admit I've wondered about it and looked closely at dates on old pictures, but don't want to cause issues in my family as my mom is still alive. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Fecked off with my landlord's maintenance subcontractor.

They needed to do a gas safety inspection and, for various reasons, mostly theirs, it hadn't been done. For instance, the last appointment I was asked if I wanted the engineer to call me when he was on his way. I said that that would be great, especially as the door intercom was broken at time. The engineer didn't phone, tried used the broken door intercom when he arrived, and then just reported it as a denial of access.

Anyway, they sent me another appointment for today, saying it would be PM. I logged into the website this morning and it said the visit would be between 13:05 and 15:10. So, I popped over the shops at just after 10. When I got back about quarter-to-11, my locked meter cupboard in the communal hall had been crowbarred open, and he'd stuck some stupid sign in there, above the gas pipes, saying, "DANGER! DO NOT USE!"

I do not use gas, I'm all electric, was like that when I moved in over twenty years ago. There are two sealed and capped gas pipes in the cupboard with a gap between them where a meter would go. What the hell would I possibly be using disconnected and sealed gas pipes for?

So, this guy breaks open my meter cupboard, busting the lock, leaves a stupid note that makes no sense because I have no gas supply to use, and uses the excuse (I assume) that I wasn't in the morning though that was because I was given an afternoon appointment.

Big argument with them coming tomorrow or Friday I think.

I place to go to one new or big event a month so tomorrow I am going to a basketball match and in March I have a show at the theatre booked. Beethoven is playing in Glasgow in February (he's making a return after a long time away from the music scene) so if possible I'll go to that. Tickets for the snooker in April (at the home of snooker) and the Euro's in June.

Today I was supposed to donate blood at a blood drive that's held at our school three times a year, but I ended up not being able to because I was slightly off the iron level requirement (my left arm had like 12.0 and my right arm had 12.3. The requirement is 12.5...) So I had to trudge all the way back to class, where I had a chemistry test and surprise, surprise I studied for the test but there were still questions that I didn't know that answers to because the teacher didn't teach us what they were asking.  I'm quite frustrated and upset because I really wanted to donate, but I guess I'll just wait until the end of the year blood drive in May....until then I'll just work on boosting my iron levels... 

This whole day so far has just been one whole "Bruh" moment

Had plans today but tiredness related to illness came flooding in and instead have spent it in the house. It's frustrating feeling ok when sitting only to feel exhausted as soon as you move. Thankfully sport has been on TV for most of the day (let's ignore the Six Nations). All will be back to normal in the morning.

Caught the train home for a night's recuperation before the next week of term, and have had a nice evening with my parents watching the Talking Heads film Stop Making Sense on tv. Also, if there's one thing I get homesick for at uni, it's baths. They are truly a godsend.

I got to see some friends today who I haven’t seen in a while, so that was quite fun. I did happen to fall into a creek, but thankfully my phone was in my brother’s pocket so there was no lasting harm.
