lizziec: (BSG - Apollo & Starbuck Viper & Raider ()
I got attacked by a Lee-centric plot-bunny a couple of days ago and have written about 2,500 words on it, and now I'm stuck. I'm not sure how to finish it and there are some bits that don't feel altogether in character, so I could really do with a beta - or at the very least someone to read it over and discuss it with. If one of you could help out I'd be totally grateful. I might even be persuaded to make you some icons or a short fic as payment if you so desire.

If you can't help but know where I might obtain someone willing to beta, that would also be completely awesome.

Thanks :)

Hi everyone, I know this is a long shot, but I have to try something.

My backpack was stolen last night at St Georges Hospital in Tooting from my mum's bed, while we were visiting her. As I mentioned in my last post, she's critically ill, and losing it was and is unneeded stress.

There is nothing especially valuable in there - my purse (brown) with some change in, some cancelled cards, driving licence and store cards; my mp3 player (black with a blue lanyard, several years old and not worth much); my notebooks (one with stripes and an a4 one with square paper with a cover with elephants on; some pens - and as far as I'm concerned I don't much care about the purse or the mp3 player. I would however really appreciate getting the bag and the notebooks back please.

If anyone in South London (tooting area) or St Georges Hospital has seen or knows someone who has seen a black and red samsonite backpack, kind of beaten up, with several keyrings hanging from the zips (a lego tie fighter, a lego admiral ackbar minifig, two giraffes [one wooden and one soft], an eeyore, a rubber lizard, a lego keyring with my name on it), and a rainbow ribbon on the back, please contact me (email info on my userinfo page) or hand it in to security at St Georges. It would be some stress and hurt taken from my shoulders.

Thank you with all my heart for reading this, and please spread if you can.

Having made it through Edexcel marking and Clearing more or less in one piece I'm now starting to look at jobs and I've found one I want to apply for.

I've become rather stymied by the "Do you consider yourself to have a disability" question. Thing is, I'm much better than I was, I have to be or I wouldn't consider applying for jobs at all and those closest to me wouldn't let me, but I've been off work for a year, and a year long gap doesn't look good on a CV. I'm still seeing my counsellor and I'm still on happy pills, and though I'm winding down visits to my counsellor I'm probably going to be on the pills for at least another year to make sure I'm properly better and try and stop any relapse. Apparently the first year is when I'm most vulnerable to it. My gut says I should declare it, but I also feel like a bit of a fraud for even considering it.

"The University operates under the Two ticks scheme which means we will interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities". This is rather valuable, and I feel it's my only shot at an interview given the huge gap on my CV when I was essentially "doing nothing", but am I really disabled as it's counted?

The University say: When answering this question, please note that under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 a disability is defined as ‘a mental or physical impairment which has a substantial and long term effect upon your ability to carry out normal day to day activities.’.

[Poll #1246569]

(Please post any expansion on this or thoughts in comments below)

I can't help but feel that this would all be easier if I were visibly physically disabled.

Any (helpful) advice or comments you lot could give would be really great. I'm feeling very mixed up about this, and a tad anxious about giving the "wrong" answer if I'm completely honest. I mean, I was never on benefits while off work (the forms scared me) so never really "disabled" in the eyes of the government. I just don't know what to say :|

Huzzah! Stretching has been adequately carried out (I rekkon I may have got an extra size out of it). I melded suggestions from here, Ben and the ever lovely CBBers and came up with a solution which appears to have worked (boobs no longer squashed, tummy lumps less obvious and the feeling of being put in a straightjacket lessened!)

For those of you who find that you need to do a similar thing in future, here is how the great achievement was won ;)

Basically the tshirt was well soaked in the bath and then wrung out so it was damp. Then we used a coathanger for trousers a bit like this one (except the cheap crappy asda equivilent which meant the edge of the tshirt had to be turned over a couple of times to get it to grip properly) on one of the side edges and hung it from the bathroom door.

On the other side edge (now at the bottom) we put another of those coat hangers and from the bottom of this (the part that usually hooks over the clothes rail) we hung a carrier bag from with a litre carton of OJ in it.

We left it to dry and then repeated it in the morning so in all it had about 24 hours on the rack.

In the end the TV Crews and photographers from the local rags came in and did their thing (there will be more tomorrow when clearing is actually open including possibly some of the national papers) and I was interviewed by BBC Radio Kent. No idea when/if I'll be on, but if you're in the area and you hear a clearing opererator named "Elizabeth" talking then that's me! All this in the name of corporate publicity for the university (who decreed the tshirts had to be visible all around *sigh* so the people under the aircon froze and people who didn't fit into the tshirts properly and hadn't stretched them looked uncomfortable)!

I'm so relieved it's over and thankful to all of you who commented on my last post I cannot even express it :D

Ok - I need help, lovely friends list.

I'm working clearing and we all have to wear these stupid tshirts with the Kent logo and clearing number on when the lines go live so we look good when the TV crews turn up. The problem is that they only have the tshirt in two sizes and mine is just a bit too small (it goes on but squashes my boobs and enhances other lumps I'd rather pretend didn't exist).

Your challenge should you choose to accept it, or know how the hell to make it look better (please) is tell me how, with the 24 hours I have, I can stretch this tshirt just enough so it doesn't squish my boobs and enhance those nasty lumps.

Cookies go to anyone who can help.
