The end is nigh.

Today I spoke to my 'husband' for the first time in over two years.

And I thought writing about it on here might be good. Sort of what it's for, really. (Except I think Sherlock would classify it as 'boring stuff').

But the cursor has been flashing at me for over an hour now, and I still don't know what to say. So maybe another day.

Ouch. Hope it didn't go too bad. You can always be reasonable and mature and throw eggs at his car if he's too much of a jerk. :P I'd help.

Ouch :-(

Sorry. Was it bad? Would you rather not talk about it? I could call if you like.

Greg 'Orio' Martin Finchley Lestrade said...

It was how I expected it would be.

Don't think I'd be much good at talking about it right now. Thanks.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Invictus
By: William Ernest Henley


Hand on the wheel, and full speed ahead, Lestrade. Don't let the bastards get you down.

Thank you, Bronwyn. That's lovely.

@Bronwyn Excellent choice of poem! Also, "Illegitimi non carborundum".

@Lestrade--what Bronwyn said.

Apropos of nothing, really, I just want you to know that I still volunteer to commit mayhem on your behalf.

oh darn that troll is back. I thought it had gone. Just a thought, do you think it might be Brian?

Bronwyn said...

@Anonymous #2 *laughs* Nah. It's Brian's new boyfriend. Jealous wench.

I can't imagine that even when leaving anonymous abuse, Bryan would miss out apostrophes or capitals. Or that he'd ever bother looking me up on the web. I haven't a clue who it is.

Got a lot of even running in your poll. Have you decided what to do when the family visits? It was a hard one to answer without knowing them. If it were my brother and his kids visiting I'd take them to the Tate. If it were my sister and her son I'd say the science museum (very different kids). If it were both at once from your poll I'd pick the zoo - something for everyone. But actually I'd probably take them to Kew Gardens as a few of the kids are into photography and flowers are always good for that.

Greg 'Orio' Martin Finchley Lestrade said...

I did mean to make it multiple choice...oops?

I think they're here for almost a week, so they could end up doing everything. Since you lot are being no help!

Greg 'Orio' Martin Finchley Lestrade said...

Do I mean multiple choice? I mean, so you could pick more than one...My brain is struggling right now.

annoyedwabbit said...

Re: the poll, I voted to for the Tower of London, but only because the Imperial War Museum wasn't a choice. The zoo is always fun, too.

You got a crack on the head, you're after ibuprofen, and your brain's struggling with simple stuff. Consider yourself worried about.

Greg 'Orio' Martin Finchley Lestrade said...

Danger is on the way to have a good old fuss, don't worry. But I really have seen a doctor already, and he did say I was okay. It's more a day of work that's mushed my brain than the application of a door.

The ibuprofen is for the headache, though.

Anonymous said...

OK, well, glad your head is OK. And clearly I should have been saving my concern for St Danger :-/

(Your spam trap says "cares". Do you think it knows something?)

Greg 'Orio' Martin Finchley Lestrade said...

Thanks for caring, anyway.

And yeah, I feel terrible about Danger. Think sometimes he forgets just how horrible people can be to each other right on our doorsteps. I know war is a messy and violent thing, and as a doctor he's seen plenty - but murder is so much more personal.

That spam trap thingy is terrifying. It spends a lot of time reading my mind.

Stupid trolls that don't know the difference between good trolling and bad trolling are stupid. In case they need a lesson:
Rickrolling-good.
Asking mormons about magnets-good.
"I OWN A HORSE" on Omegle-good.
Insulting people because their views are different than your own- EXTREMELY VERY NOT GOOD!
*thinks of Sweeney Todd and calms down ^___^*
Also, to Lupe, I don't support egging anymore since some teenagers egged my house in January and one of the eggs went through both panes of glass in my brother's window. It broke on the plastic thing in the window and so egg and glass were EVERYWHERE. My brother was in bed at the time (because it was after midnight). He wasn't hurt, but still...

Spam thingy says CONPAP... ? I don't even know.

ginnyvos said...

I went for the science museum very simply because I've been there and there's all kind of stuff that kids can do so your sister's fabulously normal kids will be fine, but there will be all kinds of stuff to keep Sherlock and Microft busy as well, which seems much more worrying to me, to be honest.
