Are any of you still here? I haven't looked at my friendlist for a very, very long time. Give me a shout and I'll have a look at your posts. x

Merry Christmas - here's whats happening:

- I came first in the xmas competition at work, despite working part-time. I'm really happy because I felt I really worked hard for it - I never win anything, whether I put the effort in or not. I deserve to feel a little smug. I got £100 - 50 cash, 50 vouchers.

- my uncle decided to come over for xmas and the SAME THING happened that happens every time. Last year he got drunk, lost his money and ended up in fucking WALES. This year he befriended someone in Manchester that robbed him, and so ending up bunking the train (that's dodging the fare for anyone not from round here) all the way from Manchester, to London Euston, then the London Underground, then to Southend. God knows how he did it, though I guess the storm helped.

- I've been having some nasty migraines. The doctor doesn't know what they are - or care, really. He advised me to keep taking codeine and eventually turn into a toothless junkie (no doubt), hanging around Cash Converters and shouting at my own reflection. I DON'T WANT TO TAKE PILLS FOR FUCK SAKE. I HATE DOING IT.

- Jack found £50 quid in a DVD box traded in at work, so instead of returning the money he quickly ran off to Sainsbury's, bringing back cans of booze and mixer for us all. I had one can of Gin & Tonic and got pleasantly merry, because I am a terrible lightweight. I think the customers knew we were a bit drunk. Woo.

- I bought Rob Pokemon X, Pokemon Black, and Pokemon White 2, so now he owns at least one of every generation. I got Ocarina of time, Pokemon Y, and Link Between Worlds so I was pretty happy. I'm thinking of buying a 2DS but God, they look shitty.

Hullo! I am still here, though I'm blogging here now and haven't remembered to crosspost to LJ for about two years. I always read my flist, though, and it's nice to see a post from you.

Well done on winning the competition!

Re: migraines - have you talked to your doctor about taking a preventative for them? I know you said you hate taking pills, but I had good results a while ago taking propranolol to prevent them, and a beta-blocker is less likely to lead to toothless junkiedom than codeine, right? (Not that I think you'll end up that way anyhow.) Sorry to hear that they are so bad - migraines are horrible. :(

Happy Christmas and a merry new year to you!

Hello there!

Thankyou, I'm going to buy a 2DS with the money. Even if they are shitty.

Doctor made me walk in a straight line, made me follow a light with my eyes, asked if I was sensitive to light or nauseous (I'm not, not really) then declared it wan't a real migraine. He then pressed on my sinuses to see it it was that. No pain, It wasn't. But the pain is INTENSE. I've been having a break recently, though.

I hope you had a great Christmas and happy new year!
