Next year

 So I looked on the site for Armageddon in Wellington and both Tom and Michael are down for an appearance in April. Of course, that all depends on their timetables, etc.

Title ideas

 I posted this on Facebook but I would love to get some ideas from you guys.

I have been thinking about changing the title of my book. The current title I have is Pathways Out of Depression, but I think it might be too wordy and I want somethng a bit more positive. 

I think I need to be really careful too not to imply that depression can be cured. It can't. It can only be managed. It also has very little to do with sadness. 

An idea I have is: I'm Okay. Subtitle: How I Learned to Manage Depression.

One of the sayings I came up with, inspired by Smallville is this: Depression is a part of me. It does not define me. 

So, if you have any other ideas, please let me know. 

Thanks guys. 

Tom Welling to be in NZ in April

 It's only showing as TBC - I guess it depends on any other commitments, but Tommy will apparently be at Armageddon in Wellington in April.

Dare I hope his 'partner-in-crime' will be there too? They seem to be practically joined at the hip these days. Especially at conventions. 


Bohemian Rhapsody

I went and saw the movie yesterday. Yes, I loved it.

Yeah, I'm kind of bored so I've been reading a lot of customers_suck lately. Anyway, that and some of my own experience inspired me to start writing a play. I had thoughts of trying to make it a novel, but it makes more sense as a play. I thought I'd post what I've done. It's not much, but it's a start.

A little help

Does anyone know of any communities that talk about depression? I know there is one on Facebook but sadly the mods never responded to my request to post this there.

Fuel prices

When I'm reading one of the LJ communities, I often see complaints about the price of gas. A few years ago it was over $3 a gallon in some places.

I have to say, buh? I don't understand what the complaints are about. Our petrol prices here are around about $2.50 a litre at the moment. Convert that to gallons, and you're paying about $10 a gallon.

I realise there are a lot of other factors, like minimum wage in the US being about half of ours (we're at $16.50 an hour) in some states but your sales tax is usually around 7 or 8 percent, whereas our GST is 15 percent. On everything. I think there are exceptions to the sales tax in some states.

Our PM is right. NZ customers are being fleeced, but when she takes a look at the books, she really needs to remember that a huge part of the cost is taxes. So the government is one of the ones doing the fleecing.

Yeesh. It's no wonder I can't afford to buy my own food when everything else is so damned expensive.

It's been a while

It's been nearly two months since I posted anything. I just wanted to let you guys know everything's ok. Read more...Collapse )


Does this make me an awful person?

My mum is seriously ill in hospital with complications from emphysema and COPD. I have been thinking the past couple of days that I should mentally prepare myself but also thinking that if she wants to go, I should let her go. As painful as it is and as hard as it would be to lose her, I hate seeing her in pain. My brother, I think, may not be ready to face it.

We lost our dad 20 years ago to cancer (20 in September) and that was tough enough.

My stepdad is a mess. He tries to pretend he’s fine but I know he’s not coping. He will never be able to cope without her.

So so am I a horrible person for thinking I should let her go?
