The sad thread.

Isn't the available limit the amount of money you can withdraw that day. So you can actually withdraw 350, but that would put you 250 above your overdraft, cue lots of money in interest, letter that will cost you £25 etc.

It's a student account so the overdraft is free to use.

 

The things that's bugging me is why does it still say -£900 if I've got £350? It ought to say I have -£650, surely?

 

And where the hell did this new £250 come from? I haven't had a payslip from work and I'm always paid on the 30th...

Turns out my overdraft limit had been increased by £250, which I guess is more of a happy thread thing.

 

But it's also a sad thread thing, because if I spend it all I'll have even LESS chance of ever getting out of my overdraft...

 

So I guess it ought to have gone in the neutral thread haha. Oh well, never mind.

Ahh the good old, well we have increased your limit as you are a "good" customer. Got myself in a hole like that when I joined up, ended up taking a pay cut but drinking everything I earn't. Ended up that my wages never actually got me out of my credit limit for 5 months. Took a long hard look and 6 months of careful saving to sort myself out, and touches wood, not been back there again.

Sad because I just went to see the new Batman film and found it to be thoroughly disappointing. The first two were much more interesting I thought.

 

In my opinion the new Spider-man film was much better.

 

I don't think they ought to have used Bane as the villain, there was very little in the way of "thinking" required, people just spotted each other and had a fist fight, it was sh*t.

 

I much preferred the battle of wits that were had between Batman and The Joker and the stand off with the two ferries from the last film etc.

 

Tom Hardy was very good as Bane though, considering his face was covered throughout the entire thing if was easy to read his thoughts and intentions.

Sad because Molly, my dog is horrifically ill, again.

 

She's already been living with a spinal condition since she was 2, she's now 7, she's basically paralysed at her back end. She can still walk but wobbles about, she can't jump, climb stairs, run properly or stand on her back legs.

 

Recently she's been acting strange and had a few incidents of incontinence, after some ultra scans and blood tests it transpires she has permanent kidney damage as well.

 

So now she's on a strict diet, about 4 different kinds of medication and she's been shaved in 4 different places by the vet for all the tests =[

 

I don't think she's got long left...

She's a Westie yeah.

 

The spine condition is apparently caused by a very rare dormant gene and is only carried by Westies... She's a pure breed by something like 9 generations, so I guess her chances of having it were slightly higher than normal. She must've just been very unlucky.

 

It took the vets about 3 months and over £2k of tests to even diagnose what was wrong with her at first, I can't believe she pulled through. I imagine most other people would've given up on her because of the costs, but she's such a character I'd probably sell a kidney, or even a lung if I could keep her going =[

 

She has a proper Scottish fighting spirit lol, she'd be William Wallace's dog if he were still around.

Looks like she's going to need putting down soon. It's just a matter of time.

 

Her kidneys have completely packed in, she isn't eating, her body isn't producing any waste, her stomach is laced with ulcers and as of today she seems to have completely lost control of her tongue, it's hanging out about an inch and just flopping everywhere. She even keeps trying to bite it off as if it's foreign to her...

 

She's been living off steroids for the last 4 years as it is, so I think it's probably for the best. If she gets any worse then it would be kinder to put her to sleep to avoid the pain.

 

The worst thing is that she's only 7, that's barely middle aged for a small dog. She looks young and healthy minus the obvious medical and neurological problems she's having.

 

Edit:

 

Had the vet over just now and had her put to sleep.

 

RIP Molly, the toughest little dog I'll ever know :(

Thanks Wolf, I'm perfectly at ease with it now. I'm glad I went through with it, watching her suffer any longer would've been far worse for me, and her I think. I couldn't bear watching her in so much discomfort.

 

I'm still upset, but it's more that I miss her =[ Don't wake up to her scratching at my bedroom door wanting to be taken downstairs, don't have to feed her breakfast and give her all the tablets she was on, don't have to stick her on the settee because she couldn't jump up herself. She made my life routine.

 

Her toys are still lying around and her basket's still in the corner... I miss the skitter skatter of her claws on all the hard surface floors and how there's no barking all the time, or a little fluffy, excited thing there to greet me every time I get home. =[

My bank balance stands at £28.93 and I need at least £40 to get me to the end of the week...

 

Need to sell stuff methinks.

 

Or beg.

Just ended my relationship with my girlfriend after almost 6 years. Cost me £19 to get to Nottingham and back for only 4 hours, in which I had one of the worst conversations of my life.

 

I think we'd just been together too long. There was an issue there that we couldn't pin down. That said, it was her who broke it off, it wasn't a mutual thing.

 

But then after we'd both decided that was it, we were getting on great whilst I was waiting for the bus. It was like we were still together.

 

Women are still a complete mystery...

 

I'm coping though. Since my dog died so recently this seems like a drop in the ocean in comparison.

 

Sigh.

 

Had one of my brother's mates come onto me the other day - tits like planets and only 16... Meh, it's legal. :P

Not finding any guns to buy at the Arms fair.

 

Was temped by a few Glocks but prices weren't really special.

Did come out with a couple of upgrade parts for the G36 and ideas for kit.

Just put in for my application to the RAF, gives me a much shorter timescale to work with. Sad because I don't think I'll be able to pass the physical when it comes around :/

Sorry to be late but my dad gets an A+ every year for physical and he's fifty four (but he's the warrent officer so I guess he needs to set an example) :)
