for want of a nail...

ID: 404 of 405
Wed 28th Jun 2006 [00:04]
(11 years, 4 months, 22 days, 19 hours and 5 minutes ago)

Let's start with fact. My plane to the United States departs in six hours and forty minutes. Which means I need to leave the house in about four and a half hours. Another important fact is that I'm crying and have been so hard that I can feel the dehydration and I've run out of tears. Gideon is with me, also upset. My parents are off elsewhere. I'll explain how we got to this point.

I accidentally moved Nikky's ten cent coin. This is a coin that has been stuck to her bedside table - possibly by congealed food of some description - for at least a year, so she tells me. Distracted, I pushed it and unstuck it. What followed was an effort to get it restuck - should we use hot wax? Perhaps superglue - though none's available. The end result was the use of clear-but-glittery nail polish. It worked quite well. Of course, once the nail polish came out, it had to go on my nails. And since my hands were done, my feet should be as well. So I ended up with glittery fingers and red toes.

Fast forward around three hours. Maybe it wasn't three hours, I don't fucking know. I've just arrived home, later that I said I'd be; as has Gideon. It's around eleven o'clock and I'm on my computer, briefly checking my email. I mention that there are some things I need from my car and put on sandals - having taken off my shoes - so I can go to the car. My father sees my nails and says in his disappointed voice "oh Bunko". ("Bunko" is a dimminutive of Bunky, a nickname that arises because I was once in a bunkbed). He proceeded to tell me how stupid it was to go to America looking "like a bloody poofta". Not a great way to get me on side.

My mother then told me that I'd have to clean it off, because I'd be discriminated against for having red toenails. And they would see them because I'd be forced to take a communal decontamination shower, citing Adelaide. Alternately, they'd arrest me for someting in my baggage, search me and then, seeing my toetails, anally rape me. The argument then progressed onto my selfishness and incompetence, the fact that my parents had to do everything for me, not because they wanted to, but because my mother can't sleep if she doesn know I'm all organised. So of course it can't be left to me. Never mind that I've run conferences for a total of around 200 kids. Never mind that I'm managing a $25,000 budget. Never mind that I'm nearly 19 and can run my own fucking life thankyou very much. No. I'm obviously incompetent.

The argument got worse. Violent. Gideon got involved - hearing about anal rape from his room apparently was sufficient for him to tell us to shut up. I acknowledge that I could have just cleaned my toenails, but I'm a stubborn shit. They presented no reason why I should. They claimed more life experience, but were not able to share a single example, except that police are apparently bad people. Heaped on top of the assertion that anything valuable would necessarily be stolen from my bag (and therefore I shouldn't take anything I value) I was going to stick to my principles. I am amused that I was told off for debating - because evidently reasonable, logical discussion has no place in an argument. Only shouting is useful.

The other thing I found particularly ironic was that I was told off, and given a lecture on who owned the house, because I threw a rag (which I'd been given to clean my toes) at the wall in frustration. Not more than three minutes later my mother slapped me. Obviously my horrific abuse of the house was far worse. In her defence, I had told her to shut the fuck up. In fact, the argument likely isn't nearly as one-sided as I'm presenting it. A surprise? Probably not.

I think the rhyme about nails is particularly appropriate. Not just because of the great pun, either. Because something so small developed into something so big. There's more, of course. Something small became something big not just because it was a cause; rather, the small is the catalyst. There are endemic problems with that lost kingdom - no backup communication lines, horse shortages, iron shortages, poor vetenarians, crappy fighers, poor tacticians and heavy dependence upon single battles. The trigger for all of these to become a big issue is just one little nail. Or in my case, ten (they didn't see my fingers, being clear and glittery, and me typing so fast).

I really didn't want this to be the way I left for the United States. But this is how it is, I guess. I'll try to blog more often from there. I still get email on all my accounts, though my phone will be off permenently (and diverting to my house). And... that's it from me I believe.

Michael, I happen to think that red toenails reveal a lot about a man! For one a man who is sure enough about himself to be able to carry off red toenails is actually awesome! I'm proud! Gideon would tell you to shut up, he needs to feel as though he's important! Hope you have a great time in America! What are you doing over there?! Kep us posted! :)

hmmm note to self; don't paint mikey's toenails red again as his parents don't approve. soz mikey next time i'll make the toenails clear and sparkly as well then maybe they won't notice! Hope you're having an awesome time in the U.S. of A.

Hah. You could have done what I did and just 'pretend' someone had put clear nail-hardner on your fingernails - borrow nail polish remover to get it off - to get the actual coloured polish off your toes...but then your Mum might have gotten mighty suspicious... A moral dillema indeed. Hope that's the end of the fights though.

I love the way you pointed out that the point where Gideon was motivated to get involved in the argument was when someone mentioned 'anal rape'. ha ha. Looks like he won't be going into YouthARC with HIS toenails painted red. lol

Here's a little mind-fuck for you. Random (nameless) nerdy fucks having *another* little bitch about me on mjec's blog. Hmm...curious... my personality is not up for scrutiny here. And if you want it to be, just leave your names and email addresses you little cowardly bastards. How fucking chicken-shit can you get than to get involved in my life and have a little whinge about me about very, VERY personal shit, without leaving your name?!? my email address is gideonc@gmail.com
If whoever wrote that shit derrogatory shit about me above has any moral fibre whatsoever, then they can email me and leave there full name and say what the fuck they've got against me.
Jesus, fuckin' cowards!

Calm down, Gideon. They were only trying to make your brother feel better.

Manic? who are you? What is your name. If you're not a cowardly little sissy like everyone else above then what is your email address. These little pseudonyms are cute I grant you, but don't dare talk to me, or about me without a little bit of accountability. You want to give me advice? Tell me to calm down? Tell me to my face where I know your name and what you are. And that way, I can give you some advice as well....

Gideon,
I am not a cowardly little sissy.
I was trying to be nice, and neutral. I didn't say anything nasty about you, so why are you now attacking me?
You know, if you weren't so easy to anger and poke fun at, people wouldn't try to do so. *cackles* YouthARC...

Oh, what advice are you going to give me? To be "lady-like"? To not try to disarm bad situations which may cause your brother grief? Perhaps you make up for Michael's lack of aggressiveness and arrogance.

Email me all you want. I look forward to your abuse.

DUDE! gids calm down, seriously. Michael wasn't having a go at you at all. and someone else was just making a small (while slightly unapropriate) joke. I think that we will all admit that you getting attacked by bogans at youtharc was in no way your fault, and it was unfair because bogans fight dirty. just chill cause its not like your honour is at stake here. you really do need to stop over reacting...

and before you come looking for me to kill me or just verbally abuse me (you should know who i am if not while don't you email me a nwhite@friends...) I'm not having a go at you in any way big or small, you may have noticed that i haven't even talked to you since michael left. So chill i've decided to leave you alone and start being nice, and stop screwing with your head. If however you really want to start abusing me for trying to be nice and show some sympathy then by all means come and see me and i would be more than happy to take this outside.

And Danielle don't take it personally, Gids can just overract slighty sometimes, and i'm sure that he wasn't talking about you when calling people cowards, he was just refering to his frustration with the fact that people can write whatever they want about him, and he has no way of knowing who they are so he can go and confront them about calling him girly.

Oh one last thing. since when did you start reading mikey's blog gids? i thought that you only read it when people told you to. (i get the feeling that i'm going to have my head bitten off when this gets read *sigh* oh well a girls got to do what a girls got to do)

Everyone just take 3 deep breaths and calm down. I have an idea lets all stop bagging out Gideon, because it is completly unnessacary.
11 years, 4 months, 17 days, 1 hour and 10 minutes agoerniehmmm . . .
maybe he was told to read it after someone else read the posted comments about anal rape . . .

bogans suck. happened to me for no good reason too. went to the last day of year eleven with a beautifully busted up face ^_^

parents suck too. that's the general rule, worrying sucks aswell. try not to do it too much, and definitely keep parents and worrying stored seperately, in places below 15 degrees.

have fun in the U.S, watch out for fundies.
11 years, 4 months, 17 days and 58 minutes agoyour own brotheryou want a public drama?
This website is sick. The fact that you, michael, have to take every little thing that happens and post it so that everyone from Peru to Korea can read it is pathalogical. You seem to think that other people aren't involved in your life. Well, it's quite clear that they are. We can see that when you mention my name once and I get a showering of abuse. It's disgusting. You want a public argument michael? let's have one, right here on your world-wide blog for everyone of these bloodsuckers to read. These people are feeding off you Michael. They want reality entertainment and so they are using you. If you want the cathartic experience of letting your emotions out, then get a handwritten journal. Don't publish them, because I've had about enough of this. Isn't it a lovely thought that all our most personal and intimate feelings are being published... broadcast straight to air. Doesn't it make you feel famous? These people are treating your life like an episode of BigBrother. And as soon as the episode is over they get right on with their lives. But do we? Does this really make you feel better about your problems? Are these people really here to support you....or are they hear to catch a glimps of someone else's most personal moments in order to make themselves feel more normal. You're doing them a service, but you're killing our relationship. I am your brother, and I always will be Michael. I will always be here for you. Will they? When you cry Michael, will it be them that will hug you, or me. When you laugh Michael, will they always be there to share your happiness. All the times that are most important to you are on here, when you got suspended, when you found love, when you got a girlfriend, when you kissed and when you weeped. But where does that leave me Michael? The little brother who has been at your side for 17 years. Am I just another character in your online story? If I mean more to you than that, then please, for the sake of our friendship and our brotherhood...get rid of this blog. It has caused me so much harm. This blog, this little diary has become the most contentious thing in your life michael, it's caused you the most problems, but has it given you the most happiness? If this blog remains up online, available to all the world to peer in on our little, meaningless lives, with all their little meaningless victories and losses, ups and downs, then I will know that you have chosen your online fame and stubborn reputation over your own brother....
please michael...choose me....i'm begging you

11 years, 4 months, 16 days, 22 hours and 59 minutes agoManicPublic drama it is then, for Gids is involved.

For your information, Gideon, I read Michael's blog because:
1. I care about him in my own twisted way.
2. I find that my social phobia and low self-esteem will not allow me to talk to him in person.

Sometimes a blog can be more private than a diary. It depends who will read it. I care more about my family than everyone else, hence the blog. They cannot find it.

I was trying to be genuinely nice. I was trying to defuse the situation. Ok? Geez.
I am sorry for apparently offending you, although I had no intention of doing so until the last post on mjec's blog, where my anger got the better of me.

"I'll calm down just as soon as you suck on my knob." Hell will freeze over before that happens. Perhaps you should find a way to manage your anger instead.

And don't you dare call Michael a dumbfuck. He is not, not at all.

Come kill me then. I look forward to it.

11 years, 4 months, 16 days, 22 hours and 50 minutes agoNikkyThis ends now
OK peoples really enough, gids and Quinnie if you really want to have this fight (and i'm fairly sure quinnie doesn't) then please do it over email. Gideon we all know that you are michaels brother, and yes sometimes people do abuse you, and yes we weren't there that night, but i have since talked to michael and I know that he was really really upset and that you were there for him and thats really awesome. But seriously dude calm down and just talk to him, tell him how you feel (god that sounded lame). There is no need to start throwing insults around and telling people that you are going to kill them. If you really want to pick on some one then hey give me a call cause i know that you already hate me anyway (Obviously if you say something about me to my friends its going to get back to be genious) and yes i probably shouldn't get invovled but i'm just sick of you totally over reacting. and this isn't about me telling you how to interact with your own family this is me telling you to stop insulting the whole world just cause you had a shit childhood or whatever.

If you want to 'talk' about this then hey you know where to find me, just one rule don't touch the jaw i'm still recovering from the last hit i took to it and the doctor said that i can't get hit again for like 3 months or something i don't know but i've still got a month left. so in other words punch me in the head and you'll wish you'd never been born.
Love you gids, have an awesome day!

11 years, 4 months, 16 days, 21 hours and 54 minutes ago--
clearly ms. "manic" (cool alias by the way...) can't read. Firstly, I asked her to keep any communicaiton via email and not on this moronic little webpage and secondly I did not threaten to kill her in any way shape or form. That would be dumb. It appears quite clear that this little girl gets over-excited by the notion of having a conflict available for everyone to read. Hence she dropped that little hint that I called my brother a 'dumbfuck' (subtle btw, ya dumbo). Which I did, so sue me. Nikky, you've been very good to me recently and I appreciate that. Don't be telling me that I shouldn't insult people, and certainly don't be saying that i've had "a shit childhood or whatever". Cos that's not your call to make, and just quietly, it's a really low (and dumb) call. I'll insult which ever dickheads I want to. People should step down from their little pedistals and go have a cry on their own. Danielle, you're an idiot. Pure and simple. But I guess that's not your fault. I kinda pity you for having to try and place yourself as some sort of #1 mjec fan. It's cute, but please, get your own god-damn family, don't start trying to defend mine by whinging about what I call my brother. Cry me a river and go hug a rainbow. Peace out dumbdumbs.

Watch my life,
Pass me by,
In the rear view mirror
Pictures frozen in time
Are becoming clearer
I don't wanna waste another day
Stuck in the shadow of my mistakes

Yeah...

[Chorus]
Cause I want you,
And I feel you,
Crawling underneath my skin
Like a hunger,
Like a burning,
To find a place I've never been
Now I'm broken,
And I'm faded,
I'm half the man I thought I would be:
But you can have what's left of me

I've been dying inside,
Little by little,
No where to go,
But going out of my mind
In endless circles,
Running from my self until,
You gave me a reason for standing still

[Chorus]

It's falling faster,
Barely breathing,
Give me something,
To believe in
Tell me: It's not all in my head

Take what's left
Of this man
Make me whole
Once again

[Chorus]

I've been dying inside you see
I'm going out of my mind
Out of my mind
I'm just running in circles all the time
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left of me?
Running in circles in my mind
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left
Will you take what's left of me?
