I don't have to justify myself to you
Hi my lovely livejournal friends

how are you? no doubt fabulicious!

I have felt guilty about updating lj less and less but nearly all my lj friends seem to update infrequently these days or never update or have deleted their journal now. some people have even said journalling and blogging are dead! Its not just me.

I find it much easier now to regularaly update my facebook and twitter which I update a lot. If you don't have me already on those services you are welcome to add me, details at the bottom of this post.

I feel sad when people delete me from here,  I will update from time to time and wont be updating this account as much as I have years ago. I just have used it less in the past year. Its easier to twitter your feelings in a little message than writing it out in a huge post! It takes ages!
I wont be deleting my lj and will try to write some things occasionally is what I am saying! x

Don't get me started on my website and webcam out of date! lol

I don't want to lose touch with my lovelist lj friends!

if you wanna add me other places:-

My Facebook
My Twitter

other ones are on my LJ profile like myspace etc

D x

Two livejournal updates in one day has hell frozen over I hear you cry?
I posted this to my facebook a few weeks ago but reposting it here for you to see...

so like like a sheep with everyone else doing it, this is my random facts, I couldn't cut it down to just 25, I had to do 28! you are supposted to tag 25 other people and pass it around :)

1. I have not had good health since the 24th January 1996. I have felt better in the last year than I have before and hoping for a normal life with working etc sometime soon. I am not quite there yet. I still suffer from anxiety and tiredness. I do believe my illness is a very important part of my life and made me who I am today.

2. My Fathers side of the family are Welsh and Mothers from Yorkshire. They met at Cardiff University.

3. My Parents had a seriously wild time in the sixties and went to all kinds or parties. They took more cannibis and alcohol than me and my brother probably ever will. I get great stories out of their old friends from then ;)

4. My brother and I were each given Welsh names. His first name is Gareth which he hated as a child because there was no one else called that and my middle name is “Huw” which Is the Welsh version of “Hugh”. I used to really hate it but now am indifferent.

5. My mother hates people who call me “Danny”. But does not mind “Daniel” or “Dan”. A friend once called from America and asked for Danny and my mother said there was no one here by that name! I don’t really care about it!

6. I am happy go lucky nearly all the time and very rarely depressed / frustrated or down. I don’t see the point in living in that state. I am nearly always giggling and laughing!

7. I sucked my thumb until I was 13 years old and no one could get me to stop no matter how hard they tried! In the end I had braces on my top teeth to fix the damage done by it and the first set of braces had a plastic bit which filled the roof of my mouth and physically stopped my thumb touching it. I am scared to suck my thumb again in case I get hooked all over again

8. Unlike several of my friends who have done this I have never slept with any celebrities as yet :P

9. I don’t think I could handle 24 hours without access to facebook and twitter and my mobile! Sad but true

10. I am addicted to hair and beauty products and spend far too much money on it but also become an amateur expert and can fix any problem I believe! I would rather go without food before them :)

11. My bestest friend / fag hag in the entire world was the person I argued the most with in high school :) We fell out for years as best friends but great again!

12. I used to hate children but love them now! I am really good with children and weirdly attract them to me wherever I go! But not in a sick way. I don’t want any of my own though probably

13. I love art and design but am really bad at art (and also sports). For some odd reason I have never worked out I naturally attract art people to me all the time. I think its opposites attract or something

14. I think rugby league players are the sexiest men in sport

15. I don’t think I have ever been in love

16. I often cant decide between two arguments on discussions or someone changes my view on sometime. I am often in the middle or not set in stone in my views

17. I truly believe I have been gay from birth. One of my first gay experiences as a child was the storm troopers in star wars. I was in someway attracted to them aged like 4 or 5

18. Everyone but my parents know I am gay. In discussions with friends they cannot believe they don’t know. Everytime I think there is no way they don’t know they say something like “cant wait for marriage and children” hahaha. I am gonna come out when I bring home a boyfriend and announce it. They are very very liberal but still its something I can never go back on

19. I have a really strange memory. I have a photographic memory when it comes to people. I remember everything they tell me about them or they tell me going back years. Eg all the jobs they had or something. But the memory is no help in learning/ languages or anything else.

20. I have cool black cousins by marriage. My uncle married a lady from Zambia and took on her 3 children. They all live in Botswana.

21. I am pretty good at repairing computers as long as they are not Apple. I have no idea what to do with my personal website anymore, I just cant be arsed with it anymore!

22. I once bumped into Brian May from Queen. As a child I went to a theatre to a pantomime with his wife Anita Dobson in it. During the interval I was going down the aisle which was not flat, it was on a slope and difficult to walk up and I bumped into this tall man with stupid hair! Later on I found out it was Brian May but his hair when I bumped into him was in a ponytail and looked huge. Like sideshow bob from the Simpsons.

23. My best and worst qualities are empathy. I worry about and think of other people too much! I am very empathetic

24. Although I have never found a particular educational field I excel in I am full of general knowledge about everything! I always want to find out about why something works or how something happens etc.

25. For a while in early 2008 I thought I was cursed. Anyone who had helped me in my life who was not a relation had died of cancer! Two so far! I have now decided it was unfortunate coincidence

26. I had my fortune told in May 2008. she said that 2009 would be a big year for me with much better health and work prospects. I would meet my soul mate and move out of my parents house. I am not sure if it will all come true but it might.

27. I suffer slightly from OCD. I am a nightmare hoarder and useless at throwing anything away. I am so sick of my room being full of crap I am thinking about going mad in 2009 and getting it totally redecorated and anew!

28. I am starting to think about future careers for myself. I have thought about computing/ health / beauty / web site design fields. And in the past thought about nursing and horticulture. At the moment my dream job would be a make up artist or special effects make up artist but not sure if I am good enough at art for it. My other job I am thinking about is occupational health but not sure if I want to go to university again!

The End and it only slightly nearly killed me :)
