I must be getting old. Looking at this post I am clearly going senile anyway... [Sep. 5th, 2004|02:41 am]

My mother bought me a dark blue beanie BEDDY BEAR which has a tummy-full of beads that when you MICROWAVE HIM (poor poor unsuspecting soff!!) he heats up and will toast your bed with the relaxing scent of lavender as you snooze.

Where once I scoffed at lavender pillows as being solely for the elderly generation, to go where the cat used to sit - or for comfort in the retirement home (where you might, for example, go to die) - I have been forced to admit to myself that, since I was pleased about receiving this bear, I *MUST* be getting old indeed; it's that encroaching adulthood of which I was so terrified prior to my 30th birthday back in June...

Btw, this SCARED me:
To chill your Beddy Bear as a cold pack, place it within a plastic bag in your freezer for no longer than 2 hours.



Beddy Bears are only designed to be heated by adults in a microwave oven. Never try to heat your Beddy Bear in a conventional oven, or leave a heated or chilled Beddy Bear with a sleeping infant or child.

Even more sinister, dontcha think??

But, Oh Gawd help me! I LOVED HUGGING THIS BEAR!!! Next thing I know I'll be visiting garden centres and coming home with rescued plants...

Ah. The above is actually Jui-ehh!!'s and my plans for an afternoon next week. But that doesn't make me old - oh no - it merely adds to my bohemian image - proof of this could be that Jui-ehh!! is 21 and therefore would be aging way way prematurely. And plants are cool - you can sit in the backgarden and look at them whilst you take tiffin al fresco with your friends.

I may be 30 - but I'm not OLD!!! Simply, I have now reached the age where I feel I can still get away with things, but now also be taken seriously.


The grass is always greener...

...in the middle.


Ok, so last night I performed as Lady Macbeth in the old Alexandria theatre in Birmingham, only Banquo's ghost was a real wraith and not an actor... And I met with a mage and some other weird people, and narrowly avoided a supernatural fight.

Ok, ok, this wasn't real. This was roleplay. World. Of. Darkness. It was fun.

Now I think I ought to go to bed. Probably I am going out with my sister in the morning and who knows what else during the day. Take in a movie? Open some cheap red plonk and get sozzled in the evening? I have no idea...

Actually, I just woke up - was up till 6am unable to sleep so listened to that Bill Hicks cd (Rant in E-Minor). Twas funny:)

I might watch Blue Velvet tonight, and thanks ever so for that:)). Depends if I can convince the 'rents to let me take the dvd player upstairs... I ate all the vodka chocs in one go btw - they were verrah nice!

My daughter gave me a cat who can have a hotwater bottle inserted in his tummy, but I microwave my wheat-and-lavender, which is indeed most soothing, in featureless rectangular bags.
Mind you reading this made me realize that I regularly do things like have sex in front of the cat, and Madame Cholet, and Honey Bear, my childhood teddy.
That is possibly even more sinister.

Indeed. But it depends on your cats reaction...

Not something I'd feel comfortable about doing in any case - my soff toys would probably have to be made to face the wall - or leave the room entirely lol!!

Closer consideration now the question has been raised reveals that the cat is asleep with eyes shut and chin on chest, while Honey Bear who is older than me and travelled from Australia via India during WWII stares sightlessly from the sticky patches where his eyes once were.
So only Madame Cholet watches with her beady eyes. And she's French, lol!

oooo... i want one of those bears now... i wonder if they sell them in the states?

but, it is sinister to have to microwave the poor fellow... they should at least include some micro-ray proof hood or sunglasses for him to wear... meh. and, FREEZE HIM IN A BAG??? good lord, that sounds like a toy that a child of a mafia don would play with... akk!

perhaps i'll just stick with my squishy old weefer... he smells like my hair when i was a child. daffodillish. old guy is over thirty and has held up through every major crisis of my life with great aplomb. god love the stuffed weiner doggie.

Yeah - frozen in a bag with an icepick in his back... and spattered blood all over as well...


Weefer?? AWW!! I currently have 2 snoopies, one bagpuss and this new bear - but all my soffs are in a big bag waiting for attention - they were in a suitcase for a long time before I moved and a lot of them have deteriorated due to moths/spiders. Poor Raggedy Ann is in danger of losing an eye!!

Btw, what in damnation is a 'stuffed weiner doggie'?? Is that like a Dachsund or something?

yup - he's a stuffed animule dachsund which i've had since i was one... i couldn't say "woofer" at one (which was what i was trying to name him - as that is what i thought dogs were called) so he became "weefer." he has survived many traumas - both mine & his... (a nasty college roomie pulled his tail off and painted white out over his eyes while in the midst of a snit about something she considered wrong which i had most likely done in the room...) he's had his back stitched up, head put back on, ears reattached, tail reattached and most recently nose hot glued back on... :) he's my boy... i sleep with him whenever tom is not in bed with me & sometimes if i'm feeling really bad i sleep with him even when tom IS in bed with me.

i wuv my weefer. i also have a corner of my childhood blankie which i carry around in my wallet - so when i get all sad i take it out and look at it... it's purple satin. :)

AWWW!!!!Poor fellow has been through the wars a bit! My littlest Snoopy is like that - had him since I was about 6 (so he's 24), he's had his nose reglued with lumpy superglue since ABIGAIL BIRKETT smashed him on the floor in the junior playground when I was 7, been to school practically every day of my life in my bag - even to work a few months back - has had the sides of his face and both paws restitched so many times he's held together by cotton and no fabric left...and is this murky shade of grey-brown all over, rather than the white cloth he was born with lol...

Oh, and his trousers don't stay up, and his sweatshirt is all torn!!

Nothing better than soff toys who love you unconditionally - I can't sleep without a big snoopy in my arms:))
