I woke up this morning bright and early and while still half asleep and trying to make my way to the bathroom I tripped over what appeared to be Gene's new kitten toy from McDonalds and my Cliffy from when I was little, having sex in my shoes!
Oh and before I go and leave this incredibly SHORT post, I have to correct my lovely boyfriend who said in his last post that I had `taken up posting questionable photographs as my new hobbie`... Mmm, how very wrong can one man be, I haven't taken up posting questionable photographs as my new hobbie, even though I am posting a `questionable photograph` in this post too... my hobbie is not that, my hobbie is to make this man's life hell before he returns the favour. I'm such a nice loving fiance... I deserve my wedding in a working men's club, I do.

I'm sure my mind has shut down and is now working on the smallest output it can manage due to exhaustion, I went to check to see if I had any comments to my Stellar post and I went to Sexaholics ... why? Absolutely no idea, I definitely didn't post in there. I'm surviving on around five hours of sleep collective this week, I feel like a zombie, a couple more days like this and Natalie's going to transform into the computer game freak she is... in other words, she's going to slay me. I can picture it now, rising from my tomb, walking down the stairs, a groan of disapproval here and there and she'll jump out and chop off my head! Knowing her, she's probably already planning my demise with her evil twin Noel.
I'm supposed to meet Kate (Thornton) in about twenty minutes, I'm not at all ready, in fact I'm sitting here at the computer with a towel on my head typing away instead. She'll understand my shabbiness, she's my great mate Kate... and I can't believe I just said that. See what I mean about the mental shut down?
Yesterday Kate and I took Gene to the park, good excuse to catch up on all the gossip while Gene plays contentedly with the other kids. Kate does the Pop Idol show with Ant and Dec, she gets to meet all the budding and not so budding stars of the show, so she's always full of hilariously funny stories from there. She was telling me how a man stripped to his underwear during his audition and not only was he in his underwear, but they were spiffy 70's style patterned Y-fronts along with his shoes and socks, he was very serious and when ripped apart by the judges, especially Simon Cowell, as you can imagine, anyway in the end the man broke down and they came to an agreement not to show it... it's a cruel world, is Pop Idol. That would have been priceless though, it's a shame... why am I grinning evilly again? I've got such a habit of that now, it's not good at all, people will start thinking I'm a devil or something soon.
I got carried away with the Pop Idol stories, I'm sorry, they just amuse me. Anyhow, at the park yesterday Gene met a little girl, well, she wasn't exactly little, not compared to him, she was about six or seven... they played for a little while in the sand pit and then she invited him to play Mums and Dads with her friends. You'd have expected him to play the baby, being by far the smallest of the group, but no... oh no, he chose the part of the dad and was quite adamant none of the other boys were going to take it from him. It was funny, if not a little scary watching them, he got married, had children... everything! In the space of half an hour. Gene's a lot like his dad though, he got bored quickly and decided he would rather dig for bugs in the sand... luckily he didn't find any, he loves to bring them back to me when he does, and I'm terrified of things like that! He's never bought me a spider... the day he does I think I'll cry.
Alright I need to get a move on, but before I go I need to share my amusement with you again... I was taking some nail polish off with some cotton tips, take a glance down at the pot, read through the various foreign directions listed on the side, only to become highly amused that in Finland, they're called: Pumpulipuikkoja's. How great is that... Liam? If and when we produce more offspring... we've got a name already. Pumpulipuikkoja Appleton-Gallagher, how about it?

I realise I've been lurking a hell of a lot the past few days, and I apologise to those I've not been around to talk to when I said I would, I apologise for not having done the things I said I would do, apology after apology, hopefully to be accepted.
I'm in such a weird mood, I miss my sister like crazy. She's only been gone a few days and she's coming back soon, but I'm still... for some reason allowing myself to complain about it. It's stupid, insanely stupid! I mean, I've done it before, been without her... we've lived in different countries for ages without each other.
When mum and dad split up when we were little, I lived with Lori and dad and Natalie lived with mum and Lee, in two separate countries. When we were starting out with All Saints, before Natalie joined, I lived alone in London while the rest of my family was in New York, I learned to be very independant... though I lived on cereal, pot noodles and the occasional dinner cooked by Shaz or Mel's mums, because I quit my job for All Saints and couldn't afford anything more, I still survived.
I think I've become a lot more dependant the past couple of years. Now I've got Gene and Liam with me all the time, both my parents are just a short drive away, same with my two eldest sisters and I've been as good as living in Natalie's pocket since we became Appleton, same goes for Liam H and Rachel... we've all become a lot closer... The Liams, Gene, Rachel... me and Nat, we spend a hell of a lot of time together.
I'll stop whining now and write about something less... whiny. I spent a couple of days away from home while Liam was off doing something Oasis related, I took Gene to Lori's for one of the days... she cooked dinner and it was lovely, but there's only so much time you can spend at Lori's before you start feeling slightly unwelcome, so Gene and I went to visit my parents, he loves it there even if they don't have all too many toys for him to play with... he likes the attention!
Liam's back now, we've been spending a lot of quality, very much needed time together, with Gene. I suppose Liam was beginning to think I was more interested in spending time with Natalie than him, which I guess from some people's perspectives, it might seem that way, but it's not at all... I love Nat and we do spend an awful lot of time together, but that doesn't mean I haven't got time for anyone else... especially Liam, I'm completely in love with him, he's the father of my beautiful son, we're going to get married some day and I'd be content to spend the rest of my life with him, so I'd say, if he wants my time, he can have my time, any time, always.
Now before I go, Happy Birthday Shirley Manson and I need to go and welcome the newbies, I also have two new icons. I hope everyone has a lovely day.

This is a forewarning, the following entry is one long ramble, slightly emo and probably very boring, I wouldn't blame you for not reading it. Ahem... and for the record, Natalie Appleton is the best sister in the world and I do love Liam Gallagher with all of my heart. Here goes nothing...
There couldn't be much of a worse time to be fighting so much with Liam, I'm in the middle of doing V3 and after all of the nasty stories printed about me and Nat recently, I really could do with his support. As care free as I seem sometimes, I really do care, it does hurt when people write horrible things about us, if not for me, then for her... for the both of us as `Appleton`.
I don't know what's going wrong, if it was just with Liam, then I'd understand a little bit more, but it's not. I'm fighting with Natalie a lot more than I ever have too. I hate it, I really do... there was once a time where I'd have both of them behind me without a doubt, if something went wrong with one, I would always have the other to run to, to find comfort in... I haven't felt as alone as I did last night, in a long time.
Both Nat and Liam were against me, my parent's weren't within reach, my friends where busy with their own lives and for a moment there, I just wanted to crawl into a whole and disappear. I discovered something though, something I'll always treasure.
Last night, Liam came to see us after our show, I was really happy to see him and for a second I thought the feeling was mutual, a hug, a kiss and a "you were great, babe." Then he handed me Gene and went off towards the beer tent. I know I should be more grown up, but that pissed me off, I'd missed him all day and all I wanted to do was spend some time with him and Gene before they went home, he seemed uninterested... as though the beer would make for a better time than me. I got annoyed and I admit, I was just looking for something, anything to cut into him with. Gene's finger nails were purple, usually I'd have laughed and made a joke about it, but this time it was enough of a stupid reason for a fight, I handed Gene to Nat and went after Liam, said some things I didn't need to say, got some back that I didn't want to hear.
It ended up with us storming off in opposite directions, me towards my tent and Liam towards the beer. Natalie happened to cross my fuming path didn't she... asked me a simple question and I blew up at her too, she didn't want to hear it, again Gene was shoved into my arms and I was given a look that would have put out an army if looks could kill... another person I love was pushed away.
I ended up sitting in the tent alone, flicking through a magazine, trying to kid myself that everything was fine. I started to fill in a cross word, the final straw came in the form of `3 Down; Surname of the brothers in Oasis. (9)`, I took it as a sign as annoying as it was that this question had to be in my cross word at that time, I'm a keen believer in signs. I threw the magazine down and decided I was being stupid, that I should go and find Liam, sort things out before he went home and I felt a million times worse than I already did. I was almost to the beer tent when I over heard Liam talking to a couple of his friends, one of them complimented mine and Nat's performance, then went on to say something about Liam being lucky to have me, that I was `really cool`, Liam didn't agree, no, he said ``yer not engaged to 'er mate.``
Again, I know I was probably just being stupid, and he was probably joking, we're always joking about, being pseudo nasty to each other, but with the tone of things between us lately, I couldn't do much but take it seriously. I really don't think he realises sometimes. I went back to my tent without saying anything to anyone, maybe it shouldn't have, maybe I'm a drama queen or maybe it's just plain stupid, but it hurt. Usually, when I'm in a bad mood, I want to be alone, but this time I didn't, I waited for ages for someone to come and see if I was alright, but I'd already made sure that wasn't going to happen... sometimes I wonder, how I can be so horrible to people at times and still expect them to come running when I need them. How selfish? Very selfish. I can't take the fighting and arguing, it's turning me into a horrible person, I'm snapping at everyone for things I'd normally be laughing at. I wouldn't blame people if they started avoiding me because of it.
As for my discovery, sitting there feeling sorry for myself, the silence within the tent was disturbed by a tiny snore. I turned to find the most precious, important thing in my world, Gene. He had crawled under my coat and fallen asleep, during the time I was too busy fighting with his auntie, his dad and anyone else I could find to blow up on, to pay attention to him. I suddenly felt sick, how could I be so blind, so wrong. Unnecessary arguments and all the feeling bad for myself, hoping someone would notice I needed them, when all the time there was someone who needed me. I felt like a hypocrite, if I could have slapped myself I would have... then, he opened his eyes and the first thing he did was smile up at me, happy to see me, full of innocence and without a care in the world... right there and then, I knew everything would be alright.

I'm about to watch `Bend It Like Beckham` (Hi Shaz), but it's the one and only DVD I've ever had that has about an hours worth of previews on the beginning... that you can't skip past! Nat's probably spending all her time with Liam H, as he just came back from a month away, which I don't blame her for, even if she has been horrible to me today and Liam G is trying to get Gene to go to bed, quite unsuccessfully, I should really go and help, but I have faith! Sooo I'm posting some song lyrics that I absolutely love to pass the time.
I'd cut it, but it's only short, so you'll just have to deal instead.
Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she's gone I can't go on
Feelin' two - foot small
Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say
Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away
How could I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in
How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say
Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away
...And now, finally the DVD is ready! What a great post this has been.

Don't look at me weird, just shut up and read what I have to say.
Sub communities are fun.
Cliques are not.
Cliques cause wars and more friggin' negativity than there already is... it sucks when you've been hated on just because of your last name, rumours and a bunch of no good assumptions by closed minded fuckwits without the ability to think for themselves and then you finally get people to see you as you and not "Another Appelton" and then this... I don't appreciate being `grouped` and hated on just because someone else named me as a clique member.
I'm not in any cliques, not even a fucking `Appleton clique`... we stick together because we're FAMILY, families do that, if yours doesnt then I'm sorry, but thats how families are supposed to be... just because we stand by each other does not mean we automatically hate everyone who doesn't share our last name!
I'm not one for rule breaking or naming names, but if you think this is about you, maybe you're right!
Now, feel free to hate further and hold childish grudges against me for voicing my opinion, I'm past giving a flying fuck. Thank you!
Now I'm going to my sister Lori's for dinner (yes Lori the one that hates me, that's how insane I am right now)
That is all.
Have a nice day.

Today was silly, don't ask whether that's a negative or a positive silly because I'm not sure I know myself! Liam's son Lennon is staying with us for the weekend while his mum does something or other... I didn't actually pay attention to what it was. Anyway, the point is, Liam and I had two kids to entertain today and it turns out Noel was looking after his little girl Anais today too, Liam gave him a call to see if he wanted to come to the park with us... we do that a lot, either with Nat, Liam and Rach, or with Liam's mum Peggy. We walk around the park, feed the ducks, have a picnic sometimes, it's nice.
Turns out Noel had seen an offer to get kids in free to see `Piglet's Big Movie` and he'd picked up a few tickets, so he asked if we wanted to go along, Gene's not really one to sit still for a long time, he's always got to be on the movie, he's into anything and everything... even snails. Ahem. It didn't matter if we left early, it being free and all. :: laughs :: I'm awful, but I'm good with my money (hush Nat) so free things are welcome if they might be wasted. Liam had some huge issues with having to go to see a Winnie The Pooh movie, but Anais, Lennon and Gene out voted him and he was forced to go. HA!
Children's movies can be so annoying though, I remember from a few times I've been with Nat and Rach and a few of my friends kids, I've never really taken Gene to the cinema, there's no point, he won't sit through a whole film. People take their kids and most are spoiled brats who are allowed to do whatever they want, they scream, throw popcorn and run around ruining it for everyone else. Anais was a little angel, she just sat on Noel's lap the whole time and didn't move... the boys however... ok so I suppose I was the one with the `brats` this time. Lennon and Gene are the next Nic and Nat... Liam and Noel, I swear... egging each other on to do naughty things and get into trouble, they're both pretty well behaved on their own, but together? Oh that's a whole new story. Liam and I spent most of the duration of the movie chasing them around the theatre, catch one and the other would run off giggling... little monkeys.
The movie was cute actually... what I saw of it anyway.
I see our good friend Damon Albarn-- yes, sarcasm is hot when overused and you know it -- got a journal, I'm sure he'll have a ball reading about how Liam and Noel went to see Piglet's movie today.
Ahh I need to spend some time with my sister, I miss her like I don't know what and it's not as if she's gone anywhere, it's just me, being a div... Fatcat, you name the time and place and I'll be there, I swear... screw anybody else who wants my time, it's all yours.
Have you noticed the overuse of the word `div` recently? Isn't it great. I'm pretty sure Miss Chisholm is to blame for that... Oi Chiz! Where have you gone? You better not be thinking of dying off... AGAIN!
Ooh and Rachie, well done with getting in to Sylvia Young babe, I'm one proud Aunty!

»» I just needed you to comfort me, and I have tried to make it right; and I don't know that I feel so sure, but I think
that we missed out. So I've sung this song to you, and I just want you to say to me; Don't worry cause I'll always
be there, there for you. (in the heavens above) Don't worry cause I'll always be there, there for you; always be
there. All I wanted was to stand alone, so is there a place that we could meet? and you see this face within your
face and I, stayed away but I'm back to hear you. - Don't Worry
»»» Just a little bit of confidence. Just a little bit of self assurance. Take it from the beginning starting with the
way I feel inside. It’s enough to make me wanna run and hide, it’s an ugly feeling. Is it because the way you are?
Did you ever think you’d come this far? As far as I’d like to. Just a little helping hand from you. I’m sure you’d know
exactly what to do, I’m ready and waiting. - Hallelujah
»» Dressing up with no effort, got my hair up in a pony tail. My jeans are getting rugged, gonna buy myself
another pair. Got a call from my boyfriend; saying he'll be here at seven, said he made a reservation... at a local
dinin' station; as I walk down the street, puddles soaking up my feet in the water there's reflections of the city
streets projections. Stand and face me, just in case you miss a chance or two; embrace me .. keep on walking
holding hands tight, lets enjoy this dark and rainy night. Started here, started there, but my skirts a knot and I don't
care. I got home, kissed my daughter. Jumped into bed with my lover. Listen to Harry Potter on the cassette
player audio. - Everything Eventually
» Got a little me, livin' deep inside of me of Twenty years of livin' with my family in poverty... The fail of tears and
the pain and the fear; I can't get cured I'm failed by economy, ethics semantics a question of morality; I'm checking
out the body for alternative authority, can't kill cancer with a teratology. Got you inner child with curly and
photography, livin' in a pyramid taking it to the hippy chick. Ship the two but hustling, I'm also hoping it keeps me
fitter, for longer, jump your bones forever. It ain't medical, its purely metaphysical. - M.W.A.
»» I've taken pleasure knowing that you never really knew me at all (it's your lost). All the nights I've waited at
home by the phone and hoping it will ring ding ding ding a ding ding." - Ring-A-Ding-Ding
»»» There's nothing left of me; there's nothing left for you, we're stealing time, 'cause its easy stop them... you've
got the best of me, I've seen the worst of you. I'm crazy now, but my mind is fighting. Maybe I'll think of you...
Maybe your sick of me, the days and the nights and the rest of your life, then. There's nothing left for you, I'm
kinda reeling too. - Supernaturally
»» Let's not be polite tonight, let me feed your apetite, playing games from way back when I was nine and you
were ten. All grown up now that's the past, we can play for real at last, so relax and let it flow, let me see how
far you'll go. You wont fall back on your own, here I come, you're not alone, my ohh my ohh, havent you grown. -
All Grown Up
» When you walk on by with your head held high, it's a wonder you've ever seen me cry. At the end of the day;
when no words left to say, just stop and say hellp. Can't you see me hiding from these tears of mine, don't
pretend that you can't see me. As far as you're concerned, I'm doing fine. How do you get up so easily? -
Waiting For Your Love
»» Its Five O'Clock in the morning, and I give up on sleep. Life with a conscience, I decide to walk away. So I find
my posessions and slide from your room. With no wrong regrets I push myself in to the streets. -
»»» Time has no delay; as we move to another day, while the world is turing over; Night and day are just a
passing phase, and you know, you know its gonna go. When your call... just reach out, grab a hand, 'Cause
there's nothing wrong like sharing what you feel inside. - Long, Long Road
»» This time I see the future in my hand - and this time I know I’ll try to understand. 'Cause this time it’s seems the
final act is over... and you can feel it too, and now the child has grown, and I’m left on my own, and you know I’m
waiting for it to be said. - Anyone
» You're the star in your hall of fame. Now I cant explain how you made your name; and I know in my heart, it's
not happenning. Even though you know something, you dont know everything. Can you stand tall, with your head
so hot and your back against the wall? 'Cause I know that there's nothing wrong with me. Absolutely nothing
wrong with me; 'cause everything you do or say, if something took it turn away, I'll tell you how it's gonna be. -
Blow My Mind
