    >Blogging Against Disablism Day

    >(crossposted to both LiveCP’s blog and Postcards From Holland) Monday is the first Blogging Against Disablism Day Click on the image for more details. Or read this post* of Lady Bracknell’s or In The Deep, which is something I posted to my blog earlier in the week to read just why it is important that we do this. I’ve been meaning to post about this for a few days but never got round to it. Then earlier tonight I found a quote which I thik says it all: “Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world.Unreasonable people attempt to adapt the world to themselves.All progress, therefore, depends on unreasonable people.”-George Bernard…

    >Random Bullets for a Saturday Night

    >My sister passed her driving test on Tuesday (first time!).  I’ve been out in her car with her three times now – I love to go for a drive and it reminds me of just how pretty the villages around where we live are.  I don’t see them often travelling by train or when we go to my Gran’s as we go down the dual carriageway. Driving listening to Madness “Driving in my car” is especially fun. We went to Tescos last night and came back with irrefutible proof that I am in fact, adult now.  We went down the cleaning products aisle  and Soph said to me that I…

    >The Man In The Glass

    > When you get what you want in your struggle for self,And the world makes you king for a day,Just go to the mirror and look at yourself,and see what the man has to say. For it isn’t your Father or Mother or WifeWho judgment upon you must pass,The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life,Is the one staring back in the glass. Some people may think you a straight – shootin chum,And call you a wonderful guy,But the man in the glass say’s you’re only a bum,If you can’t look him straight in the eye. He’s a fellow to please, never mind all the rest,For he’s with you…

    >Questions of varying varieties

    >Questions – discuss in comments Do you think that if you experience an “ism” such as ageism, sexism, racism, disablism etc but do nothing about it other than getting mad/upset about you should/you do become as bad as those who commit the “ism” because by passively allowing them to continue you condone their behaviour? Which is funnier, a friend of a friend coming up to me on the boat this afternoon to ask if I wanted to go for a “wee wee” or someone else pointing to a memorial headstone in a shop we were outside this evening and announcing out of the blue that he wants that very headstone?…

    >Early Bird!

    >I’m headed to Greenwich (London, home of gmt) in mere minutes but I have time to kill and left my computer on overnight so the media player alarm clock could wake me… It’s strange to be up this early (I woke at 5/45, got up at 6) but it’s also nice to be awake so early and have soooo much of the day infront of me. to not feel like i’ve slept later then most people and slept half tha day away is strange. Also I can watch out the window and see others starting there day, looking out the window to see what the day will bring and driving…

    >Woohooo

    >You know the really cool almost perfect for me opportunity that I mentioned in this entry? Well, I just got an e-mail about it. And it’s happening. My contribution won’t be exactly what they asked for because the constraints of the project and what I can offer them don’t mesh completely. But the person in charge of it put in her e-mail that she feels that what I can offer is both “interesting and relevant” and so I still get to take part! It really is as perfect for me as it could be given that I knew when I offered to contribute that I wasn’t what they wanted exactly.…

    >Random Facts.

    >I just felt like writing a post with a few facts about me… don’t know why, just did. My first ever wheelchair was a bog standard nhs one… then I got a Remploy Roller. I used various versions of that chair until I was 18 (9 years?) My first ever crush was on Wil Wheaton. It appears that I know a lot of guys called Rob. Before I was nine I didn’t have a wheelchair I used a Maclaren Major Buggy instead. I hated it. I have two friends called Sarah who are both with guys called Simon. It gets confusing. I know lots of people called Sarah/Sara that gets…

    >Monday Memories: Did I Ever Tell You About The Last Time I Went A Whole Day With NO Pain?

    > This Monday Memory is bought to you by the fact that I’m pretty pissed off at the moment Did I Ever Tell You About The Last Time I Went A Whole Day With NO Pain? No? Well that doesn’t surprise me being as it’s only a vague memory for me… I was about 14 at the time (now 24) and to be honest I can’t really remember not having pain… I can remember roughly when my pain started and I can remember all the various half arsed explanations for why I have pain but I can’t really remember not being in pain. My pain started in my back and…
