Done with this pregnancy stuff.So. Over 32 weeks now and I can happily say I WANT IT OUT RIGHT NOW.Why on Earth would someone do this to themselves?! It is torture. The sickness, the hormones, the endless wailing, the endless weeing, the kicking and the unholy moving from inside yourself?! WHY?!WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THESE THINGS?And I still have to birth the little sod yet! D: He has been inside longer than I was! I was out by now! Ugh. Sob.We got some scans done - He has a face! Quite happy about that.On shitty news both my cats have now gone missing. :/ No more cats for me, it is far to heartbreaking.How are you lovely lot doing? Preparing for Christmas/<unoffensive option here>? I have been a wrapping demon and got a load done! Hurrah! I do visit dA most days but I am just lazy. I will be back to full awesome force one day but things are going on right now. Damn them. DAMN THEM ALL.

Baby gender revealed!We went to the hospital as you do and had the 20 week scan. Baby was there, wriggling about and being all alien like and scary. Every now and then a hand appeared and then you could see a spine. Freaky. Seriously I was creeped out.Then the scanner woman pointed out the placenta and I felt the need to vomit into my mouth. Yeah, I'm not good with these things. Christ knows what'll happen at the birth! It will be HILARIOUS.So yes, baby is there wiggling about, avoiding the scan thing. When the lady first looked it was upside down! She asked if we'd like to know the gender if she could tell. We said yeah it was okay. So she had a little look at their bits and pieces and the baby splayed their legs and we got an eyeful of fetusy boy bits! So its a boy AND WHAT A BOY. I laughed as the bits and pieces flapped about. I was a little sad as girl clothes are so much prettier and fancier but as long as he is healthy I am thrilled, some people can't have kids so I'm certai
Sex tomorrow and depression.Hello Deviants.How are you doing? I hope you are all doing well.Tomorrow I go to the hospital to see what the baby is doing and hopefully find out if it has a peen or a vagoo. I am not really bothered what gender it is, as long as it is healthy and has a face then I will be happy.I haven't really been feeling all that happy lately. I blame all the hormones. Just wanting to sit in my house and be sad! I haven't even managed to go visit the BFF's which is upsetting. I hope that it will remedy itself soon.I am also in the "oh god I'm having a baby. Do. Not. Want." stage yet again. Joy. I am sure when it bursts forth it will all be okay. D: It will wont it? If not I will sell it and use the money to buy kittens. Many kittens.The dog will not leave me alone at the moment. She's never been overly affectionate but she is so needy and odd at the moment. Damn hormones. It'd be okay but she is HUGE and wants to lie on me.I have sat down to write this journal so many times but haven't had t
My DA Story.My DA journey starts eleven years ago when I first joined. I was fascinated by how people could make colours and lines look so amazing when I could barely draw anything.Whilst battling an endless fight with the voices in my head, I found DA and the community a great way to escape for a while and talk to like minded people.I saw awesome art made with photos of normal people. Not super models or famous people, just general every day people. So I wondered if maybe I could be made to look 'beautiful".I loved what was made. I loved how others could envision things I hadn't even imagined. I threw myself into the community, wanting to make everyone as upbeat as I felt.I met people I grew to love, I lost some along the way which is pretty shitty but I still have some of the best friends I'll ever have and a load of friends across the globe. Now that is impressive.
Death sucks.Hello Deviants.My Nan died last night.It was expected and she went without pain but it is still pretty heart breaking. She suffered from quite bad dementia over the last few years and Dad looked after her at home until a few weeks ago when she needed constant care so she went into a nursing home just round the corner from his house. We visited daily and she was pretty okay with it all. However on Friday she was feeling a bit unwell and by the end of this week she was pretty much unconscious in bed. Before this she had really laboured breathing, it was pretty much a "death rattle".I am glad I got to see her on the day she died, I said hello and such and told her I'd see her the next day and gave her a kiss. She then went peacefully a few hours later. Now I obsess over making sure Dad is okay. Him and his siblings have known this day has been coming so it is a bit of a relief that she isn't in pain anymore, but it is still sad. You never want to lose a parent I guess.So here's to Nan
I seem to be having a baby...!!It has a hand! D: How excitingly terrifying! Manwife and I are having a tiny little person! I am about three months and six days, I was horrifically ill at the start, in pain and couldn't move. That then went and the sickness began, morning, noon and night I wretched. I also wretched if I didn't eat every few hours. Fun.As you may know I am terrified of needles and veins creep me out so the first (ever) blood test I had was traumatic. I wouldn't let them take it from the crook of my arm so they took it by my wrist. Mother managed to put the numbing cream on the wrong part of my arm. The midwife got the needle in and then went "Hmm, there's no blood" and "your vein's wiggling out of the way". I saw Mother's face fill with despair. She knew what was coming. Then suddenly someone was shouting "NO NO NO NOOOOOO! GETITOOOOOOUT!" Rather loudly. However my second one went well, the numbing cream worked well and the midwife got it on t
Married for a year! :DYes! I have been married for one whole year as of yesterday! How did we celebrate?We didn't. We got a take away Pad Thai that I managed to spill over myself, watched Game of Thrones and I went to bed as I had a headache. Fun!If you are my friend on Facebook (which you should be, I'm hilarious) you'll see my awesome updates.This bird has been twittering constantly. It has become my enemy.You'll also find the tally of the animals my cats have brought me. Such as this shrew!<img="https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/p526x296/10341604_10152252343668074_2260090088879198394_n.jpg?oh=200de0dd733f3b4771e0889b7a28dbfb&oe=540D9CFE"> I managed to get him off the cat and put him in a box to chill out. I checked on him later and he was on his side not moving. I assumed he had died so I prodded him. No. He was sleeping. So I brought the cats in and put him out. Hope you've all been well!
What would you rather have?Legs as long as fingers or fingers as long as legs?This is an important question.

Collection: Hammer Time!Share|ArchiveHammer Time!There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

Collection: The LeonidsShare|ArchiveThe LeonidsThe year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati
