Apple Talk / Failed Experiments In Housesharing.
« on: August 19, 2013, 06:53:53 pm »
Myself and the Motherfucking Messiah/scruffy Scots oik are moving because we are sick sick sick of housemate drama.


I had a tumblr meltdown with moving anxiety earlier. We're moving, deposit is safe, as the official deposit scheme from the govt is in my name after the fiasco of moving in here. Using my old landlord to get this place and paying out all the cash to secure it, then having it paid back has despite the initial grumble, worked out in this new improvedTM fucked up situation in my favour. As does the medical letter that the doc has promised me.

Friday, we thought he was moving out. Now, he wants to stay.

For this the useless sack of feed tube needs_

This is the draft list I came up with

2 new housemates (in full time work)

Raise new deposit and first month's rent in full because new deposit scheme form and such will be needed, as the current one is in my name and non-transferrable.

get new internet

new mattress

fridge freezer



kitchen kit

pay back debt to Steve (minus any deposit paid)*

change supplier details for utilities and council tax on 1st October

lounge furniture (outside of anything we leave behind)

this currently stands at approx £300

This is pee my pants fucking hilarious. I don't even think he'll manage to get the landlords permission to start with, and I'd feel like an utter dick passing him off onto some other poor schmuck. The boy is a walking money pit, has history of domestic abuse and shirks all housework.

needless to say today is the day that I find out that one of my freinds of a friend (my femininja friend Joy's friend..) is looking for somewhere to live and as they (not sure which pronoun they prefer..) are looking for somewhere to live, and is in a living with an ex type situation. but with a housemate that doesn't want to budge. Similar values and gets on with your friends in a new housemate is a close second to no housemate, even if the intertubes have been the sole form of communication.

Oh and I have to look for work at the moment too. Which is great when you are too stressed to concentrate. I did manage to hash out the transferrable skills list though, which is a small victory.

and on a day like today, I'll take the small victories and "well at least the bottom line and my ass is covered money wise."

Current predictions for me and Payne are that feed tube is going to crash and burn spectacularly.

More news after the agent's meeting with us tomorrow.

Guy is literally busting my balls here.

Apple Talk / I fucking HAET PUA's

I understand kickstarter's position on this... but I still hate PUA's

A first contact centre for rape and sexual assault victims.

a FOR PROFIT company. With no experience in the field.

Stavvers is balls to the wall angry feminist, but it's the best "uuuh... NO" I've found so far.

I'm all bent out of shape with the thought that a company is profiting from those who have suffered sexual assault.

Don't want to jack the other thread, thought this would be informative.

Potentially TW needing.

Urgent call for action.

The coalition government plans to sneak through legislation to remove rights to equality tomorrow.

It is the repeal of part 1 s3 General Duty of the Equality Act 2006 and is worded as below:

3 General duty
The Commission shall exercise its functions under this Part with a view to encouraging and supporting the development of a society in which—
(a)people’s ability to achieve their potential is not limited by prejudice or discrimination,
(b)there is respect for and protection of each individual’s human rights,
(c)there is respect for the dignity and worth of each individual,
(d)each individual has an equal opportunity to participate in society, and
(e)there is mutual respect between groups based on understanding and valuing of diversity and on shared respect for equality and human rights.

If this goes through in laymans terms it will mean:

(1) people’s ability to achieve their potential is limited by prejudice or discrimination.
(2) there is no respect for and protection of each individual’s human rights.
(3) there is no respect for the dignity and worth of each individual.
(4) each individual does not have an equal opportunity to participate in society.
(5) there is no mutual respect between groups based on understanding and valuing of diversity and on shared respect for equality and human rights.

This is nothing more than an attempt to prevent legal challenges to their ill thought out and damaging policies.

Write to your MP now and ask them to vote against this travesty. PCS have a page which lets you email your MP, all you have to do is enter your postcode.

This popped up on my FB feed today.

Thoughts? |My thought is while the working class are busy with the "ding dong, the Witch is Dead" they are burying this!

So i'm in a pickle. Is me pointing out cultural appropriation that isn't for example Irish, a shitty thing to do?

Asked a friend who is Native/ First Nations and she was cool with it.

Hell I'm probably going to KEEP doing it and just make sure I use sources from folks of the culture being appropriated saying "no, this isn't on" and give them a signal boost rather than claim any authority.
