At 30 years of age I have nothing to show but prescription bottles for psychiatric medications and an anxiety level high enough to give an elephant a heart attack.
Usually I keep myself in check, usually I remain calm or continuing going about my business. But ever so often, my lack of patience gets the better of me. But at 30 I should have something to show for it right? HIM — Complete and utter waste of oxygen, not even worth the flesh that covers his cowardly maneuvers.
He was there for a whole 5 months. See we tried getting back together. So I walked… especially when it came to finding out that he 1.
Had something. And 2. But regardless, I will admit… yes I will sometimes raise my voice or yell at her. Phil to check into a psychiatric ward. Oprah too maybe. This blog is proof that everyone goes through hell as a parent or single parent. And it also gives proof that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Started out as a hordeolum, then…. She said it could take up to 6 months to go away. So, it is surgery, very minor… but all the same.
They will put her under, and as mom, I feel my baby should wake up to me next to her. Btw… it is really HOT out. So I moved out. Thought I had found a great group of friends to live with… and consequently hang our with. I was told I belong…. I became an associate. I thought things were great. So I did what I felt was best. Thought things were fine… I was back on the job hunt and shortly after found a job.
I was kind of excited about the job. I mean yeah. I was upset. The only reason I was allowed there was because I was a candidate. But it was onward and upward. I assumed that I would get the typical 30 days to move on….
So after a rather intense conversation I decided to head to bed. She was taking over the bedroom the kids slept it…. Friday, 29 November Mother: Oh Dear! But first, let's have a listen to something truly horrific and completely non-Christmas related: a pair of tracks from Danny La Rue's album To Mother, With Love. At the age of nine he moved to London with his four siblings and his widowed mother Mary, however he was evacuated during the Blitz and spent the next few years in the Devon village of Kennford, near Exeter.
He became interested in performing while serving in the Royal I Want Her So Bad - Psycotic Pineapple - I Want Her So Bad (Vinyl), appearing in regular concert party reviews and, when he left the service, he spent years in repertory and in variety shows, touring Britain and honing his craft. He opened his own nightclub in London in TV and film fame soon followed. In a career which spanned over 60 years, Danny always known as Dan to is friends established himself as one of the most popular performers in Britain.
In many ways Dan was Britain's Liberace : like Liberace, Dan kept his sexuality a secret for most of his life even though he lived with his partner and personal manager Jack Hanson for 40 years until Hanson's death in and, like Liberace, he was a horrible, horrible singer - as is amply proved by the brace of tracks I present for you today.
His version of On Mother Kelly's Doorstep reached number 33 in the UK singles chart inbut this would be his only chart appearance. He may have been a fabulous entertainer, but he could not carry a tune in a sequined, fur lined bucket, as these two tracks prove. To Mother With Lovepenned specifically for this set, is a fright, but the last track on the collection - Say it With Flowers - is simply horrific. His last years were blighted by illness: he suffered a stroke in and then revealed to fans that he had been battling prostate cancer for several years.
Further strokes and a bout of cancer of the throat followed before he finally passed in at the age of 81 - shortly after making his last live apearance in Spain. He was buried next to Hanson in Kensal Green, London. I bet the estate of Walter Lanz I Want Her So Bad - Psycotic Pineapple - I Want Her So Bad (Vinyl) a field day suing them for stealing the Woody Woodpecker laugh originally voiced, incidentally, by Mel Blanc who, as we all know, got in to trouble when he paired up with Pat Boone for his huge hit Speedy Gonzales.
And seriously, what is that thing on the front cover supposed to be? Clearly the designer had never seen an actual woodpecker. Anyway, have a listen for yourself and see what you think. Saturday, 16 November The Partridge Calamity. A couple of weeks ago the Squire invited me to contribute to his upcoming Christmas podcast.
We spent a great afternoon chatting about some of my favourite bad Christmas records and he introduced me to some of his. It was hideous. It still stinks. And why is the little urchin rising out of a giant egg on the front cover? The two tracks I present for you today tell you pretty much everything you need to know about this project.
