1 Pieces of useless information -  Tell me something useless
My ferret is finally here [26 Jun 2007|09:41pm]
Well after weeks of waiting, my ferret kit is finally here.

His name is Shadow and he is 9 weeks old tomorrow. He is a polecat coloured ferret. When we went to pick him at 5 wks old he was supposed to be a silver mitt, but like puppies and dogs, their colour can change so quickly, so he's now turned out to be polecat coloured. I don't mind, I gave up colour preferance quite a while ago.

He has been with me for 4 days now, and seems to be settling in well. He came to work with me on sunday, monday and today and certainly enjoys all the attention he gets from customers. I'm trying to take him to work with me every day this week to get him used to the carrier and the car (which both, he dont like much) because on saturday we are going to Great Yarmouth for a few days and he will be coming with us.

Onwards to the cute imagesCollapse )

New additions to my furry family [20 Jun 2007|09:42pm]
On saturday I will be getting a new addition to my furry family, and 8 wk old ferret kit who I am going to name Shadow. Many pictures will be taken & posted. Hopefully she might have another ready for me, so that I can have a pair from the start. If not, my breeder said she would have some in a couple more weeks. I need to ring her tomorrow to make sure it's still ok to pick Shadow up on saturday.

I'm up to 7 hamsters now, 5 syrians (3 female, 2 male) and 2 roborovski dwarfs (both male). For anyone that doesn't know, their names are Shiro, Kikyo, Mina, Boris, Victor, Buster and Lucy. That's the order I got them in as well.

I have not really been up to much recently. I went to the East of England Country Show, which I enjoyed very much. Other than that I've been at work, which for the past few weeks has been very busy!

I have nearly finnished redesigning the website for Kama's Cave Greyhound Rescue and plan on launching it sometime in the near future.

I am also thinking of starting up my own ferret group for my local area, as there isn't really any around. I'm pretty sure I know of at least 3 other people that will join. They are a family that has 8 or 9 ferrets and comes into the shop. Infact it was probably thanks to them that I decided that I wanted ferrets, and it was one of theirs, named Stitch, was the first ferret I ever held.

In a fortnight or so, we might be going for a couple of days holiday to Whitby, just for the hell of it. Thanks to a lady we met at October's goth weekend, we now know of 1 ferret friendly B&B, so we might even take Shadow along with us.

Ferrets [25 May 2007|09:19pm]
As I already mentioned briefly in a previous journal entry, I should be getting 2 ferret kits soon.

I've been dealing with a brilliant breeder called Claire. She breeds her fuzzits as pets only, as temperment is inherited from parents...ferrets bred as workers would be no good as pets.


So one of her ferrets, Rosie. had a litter of 12, which was supposed to be the litter i had 2 boys from. But, they have got ill and are going to be unable to leave when they are 8 wks old. However, one of her other ferrets, Fuddles has had a litter as well. The only thing is, there is only 1 boy and he is a silver mitt. Now, i've got to a point where colour really doesn't matter, I'll have whatever colour. So, what Claire's gonna do is, if i like this silver mitt boy, I can have him when he reaches 8 wks old, and then once the other kits from the first litter are better, I can have a Sandy coloured (which was the colour i originally wanted).

So, on Sunday we are going to go and see this silver mitt boy. I'm sure i'll like him and fall in love with him anyway, but she wants me to go and see him. I think he's 5 wks now, so in another 3 wks ish, i should have at least 1 ferret kit.

yay.

New Look LJ [07 May 2007|10:17pm]
Welcome to my new look LJ. I thought it was about time it had a little revamp. Ok so all i've done it changed the layout and colours a little bit, but hey, I think it looks better.

So we are back from yet another very good Whitby Goth Weekend. We had a stall selling goth dog clothes for a local greyhound rescue that I work for in my spare time.

www.KamasCave.com

Together with donations, we have raised about £300 i think. The money we raised will most likely be going on building the dogs an all weather paddock, so that no matter what the weather or time of year, the dogs will be able to get a much needed run around and play.

As always it was good to see karlthulhu and gothichaven but unfortunatly because of the stall I didn't get chance to see littlepinkfaery. It was also a shame not to see littlepinkfaery & karlthulhu's dog Gus, but I'm sure we will see him next time :)

This year, I didn't buy much, but what I did buy was completely worth the money! I finally decided that I could not live without a parasol from the Wicked Lady Olivia, who wasn't there in person herself, but thanks to gothichaven, I gots a lovely purple velvet & lace parasol. I also got a very elabourate purple cape thingy from Lestat Courture, who was trading in the Met. I thought it would go well with the parasol, so I had to get it. From the Bat conservation stall i bought a art print of Mana (Malice Mizer, Moi Dix Mois) and a few other random small bits were bought from various stalls.

Oh, one other thing...i gots another hamster from the pet shop in Whitby...i really must stop going in there. So I'll take this opportunity to welcome hamster number 7, now named Lucy (to keep with the dracula theme..my other whitby hamster is called Mina) to the clan. Pics of her to come as soon as I can find my camera lead.

It been too long [24 Apr 2007|09:22pm]
It's been way too long since i did an update. Mainly because I have been very busy designing a new website for a local Greyhound rescue that I now work for in my spare time. Infact we have a stall at WGW selling handmade goth dog clothing, in aid of raising funds for the rescue. We will (should) be upstairs in the Spa.

I have just started packing the car. All i have left to get is get small bits together (like jewellry & make up) and put a few more tops & skirts in my suitcase and load that in my car and I am packed...i think. No doubt I will forget something, i usually do. Well anyway I only have until tomorrow evening to make sure I don't forget anything. I'm finnishing work (hopefully) at 4pm, rather than 6, so that I can definately make sure that I have everything packed before driving to Paul's that evening. We are going from Paul's house this time because we are taking Lulu, who is Paul's sister's lurcher dog with us, and because my dog is anti social, she cant come to mine overnight. So I leave unofficially, tomorrow evening, and we leave officially between 5 - 6am thursday morning, so we will be there between 10 - 12 i should think.

In other news, in a previous journal entry (10:37pm 04/01/2007) i said "My latest, and last 2 pets that I am allowed." in referance to my 2 dwarf roborovski hamsters, Boris & Victor. Well...they aren't my last as I now have another Syrian hamster and in a few weeks time (hopefully beginning of June) I will be getting 2 ferret kits. At the minute they are almost 3 weeks old. I get to go and choose which 2 I want when they are 5 weeks old and bring them home when they are 8 wks old. I am so excited and I am planning on taking them to work with me which will be fun.

Anyway here's a picture of hamster number 6. He has been named Buster

Rest In Peace little ones [15 Jan 2007|10:29pm]
Well, my most recent additions to my pets....2 Macleays Spectre stick insects, have passed on. I don't know why, which is the worst part. Having only had them for a matter of weeks, then for them to both die within a week of each other is somewhat strange.

However I have made a little memorial picture for them, so that they are never forgotten.

To Neville & Shy, Your lives and our time together was short, and will be missed but not forgotten. I hope wherever you are now is better than earth!




Cut to 2 pics of NevilleCollapse )

Boris & Brother [04 Jan 2007|10:37pm]
My latest, and last 2 pets that I am allowed. These two guys are Roborovski hamsters, the smallest type of dwarf hamster that you can get. I kinda fell in love with their comic ways they run around, and they make a cute pair. They are 2 brothers and one of them is called Boris. I haven't yet thought of a decent enough name for his brother
...feel free to throw some random names at me, because i'm really stuck.

Norwich [04 Dec 2006|10:44pm]
[ mood | Blah as usual ]

Just a quick post this one,

We went to Norwich on friday because naturescorpse's sister had a job interview there. Now, I would love to know if anyone else's job interviews have ever lasted for 2 HOURS!!!!!

Anyway, after an hour and a half or so, of sitting in the same place, in some converted hotel which is now a businness centre called the Royal, naturescorpse and I decided to step outside for a bit of air.

This is where it gets exciting...
So there we were, standing in the middle of Norwich on a dull drizzly day, when low and behold.....who's that walking around the corner?....I know that face.....hang on....thats.........

Who's that?!?!?!Collapse )

Whitby Pics [10 Nov 2006|11:16pm]
Well here is a small selection of our pictures taken by myself and naturescorpse at October's WGW.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v284/darknessoflulu/WGW%20Oct%202006/

We took a fair few pictures, although not as many as I normally would, mainly because my Nikon D200 that i took with me is just sooooo heavy and i really hate carrying it around all day. I think all the pictures in the album were all taken on Sunday, which is the only day that I had the camera most the day.

Also, as promised, piccies of the latest addition to my hamster family...Mina...

Back from Whitby [07 Nov 2006|10:14pm]
[ mood | blah ]

Well we are back from another fantastic WGW (well, actually we came back last wednesday, just haven't had chance to post anything yet)

We had a great time and met a few new friends as well as seeing some old ones.

We went to the Spa on friday and saturday night, as well as attending the Unscene Tea Party and the beach party which were all great fun. We did want to do the Forum Walk but we ended up not going and decided to go to the Bizarre Bazaar instead.

To be honest i didn't really seem to buy this much this time. I think i'm quickly beginning to realise that a lot of the stalls have the same stuff on them that they had the last wgw. Not to mention that we didn't actually get a good look around because it was SOOOOO busy and chaotic, along with friends wanting us to go do stuff with them, my shopping time was cut short...not that that's a bad thing.

Off the top of my head i remeber buying....a corset, 2 umbrellas (i have an unhealthy obsession with umbrellas at the min), some new Whitby Jet Earrings, a Victorian Whitby Jet Brooch, Moi Dix Mois's new album, a Dir En Grey album, a cardigan (i was cold on saturday) a fleece coat (i was cold on sunday), a scarf, gloves and ear muffs (i was cold on monday), a pewter bat pin badge, a cuddly bat keyring, 2 living stone plants, the Whitby Gazette, Fish & Chips Ok...i bought more than i thought i did.

Oh yes and Mina. I bought a hamster....yes...another one. She was born and bred in Whitby by the guy who owns the pet shop near Thorntons. She's ginger and white and she's 5 months old. I apropriately named her Mina because of the Whitby/Dracula link. Yes i know very clique but i like the name. Mum knows about her but my dad doesn't yet although i'm not sure how much longer i will be able to keep it a secret because i plan on buying her a new bigger cage. At the minute she is in Kikyo (Cow)'s old cage.

I'll put pics of Mina in my next post which is going to be my whitby photos post.

Now i'm back to work and everything seems so hard. I thought it would be good to get back to work after a week off, but to be honest i've had a rough few days at work and i think i've just found it hard to adjust back. It's like Whitby is in a time warp or something...everything seems to go so slowly, yet the days pass so fast. Then when you get back home you are basically thrown into what seems like the deep end...only to realise that you are not doing any more work than you did before you went.

Rest with the spirits [14 May 2006|10:16pm]
[ mood | sad ]

IT is with deep regret that following my post regarding missing frontman Simon aka Moriati from Moriati and the Sith, i must post the latest news. I was hoping i wouldn't have to do this and all would turn out well, but it hasnt.

straight from nightbreed's forum


Posted: Sun May 14, 2006 10:01 am Post subject: About Simon "Moriarti"/Razorteeth please all read

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is with a heavy heart that I type this news.

Yesterday evening we were informed that Police had found and identified the body of Simon, vocalist of the band Moriarti And The Sith.
Full details are still filtering in, and we will make a longer statement once all the information has been confirmed.
Simon was thought to have been depressed and was reported as officially missing on Monday 8th of May.

To say I am shocked is an understatment. Simon was a fantastic guy. Kind, funny, well liked, inteligent, artistic, hard working, sensitive etc,etc, with the whole world in front of him. I personally was looking forward to be working with him in the near future on a project that was/is currently under development.

He will be seroiusly missed, and the world is a poorer place without him.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I considered him a good friend, We talked on the phone on a regular basis, he was always happy and sounded happy to hear from us. He was the best showman i have ever seen, and Paul and I supported him playing at Carnival of Souls...when nobody else seemed to. I shall miss him greatly.

A Missing Friend [13 May 2006|08:30pm]
[ mood | worried ]

Please read this is so important, a good friend of mine, the lead singer from Moriati and the Sith has gone missing, and has been gone for over a week now. I've only just found this out and i'm very worried so please at least take the time to read the whole of this post, even if you don't know him, or his whereabouts.

This article was taken from his area's local paper

"Simon Jones - frontman of the Gothic Vampire metal band - Moriarti and the Sith - has gone missing , can anyone help ?
Obviously we are all worried about Si , if anyone's seen or heard anything get in touch with the Police.

This is an extract from North east news, maybe pass it on and update any forums

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 35-year-old member of Goth heavy metal band Moriarti And The Sith has not been seen since he left his home in Hillcrest Place, Hesleden, on Sunday morning.

Mr Jones had been involved in a domestic argument on Friday and had spent the weekend performing at gigs in Cumbria.

Police say they are becoming increasingly worried for him.

A spokesman said the driver may have seen Mr Jones walking towards Castle Eden at about noon on Monday.

The spokesman said: " as time goes on, we are becoming increasingly concerned for his wellbeing."

A search for Mr Jones was launched on Monday afternoon when he was reported missing by his wife,

Anyone with information is asked to call 0845 60 60 365."

perils of working in a pet shop....... [03 May 2006|09:06pm]
[ mood | Very happy!!!! ]

The perils of working in a pet shop.........inevitably....you bring a little bit of it home with you.

As most know, about 2 months ago i brought a little white hamster home, who I named Shiro, which means white in japanese.

Now....most people would be satisfied with bringing just 1 hamster home, but then again, i'm not most people. So it is my pleasure to present for your viewing pleasure.....Shiro's real sister, my new hamster Kikyo....

Carnival Of Souls Announcement [12 Apr 2006|09:58pm]
Straight from Nightbreed's official website.........

Carnival Of Souls 2006
Official Press Release



As some of you know, I started Carnival Of Souls about 11 years ago. Over those years the event has grown into an established part of many people’s yearly event schedule, and we have over the years featured many, many, new underground bands and artists, and hopefully in that time we have been instrumental in advancing and enriching both the Fetish and Gothic scenes.

However, everything changes and Estelle and I have decided to pass the running and organisation of the event to other hands. We separately and collectively have other projects in the pipeline, and have decided that it is time to stand aside and allow the event to progress under a new collection of organisers. The new “Captain of the Ship” is John Fulani, whom we are sure will continue to run the event in the spirit of its founding philosophy, as well as to advance and enrich it with his own creative muse.

“Nightbreed” will still be very evident at the event, and always supportive of “Carnival Of Souls” now and in the future.

Soon there will be a larger press release detailing the exact line-up and running order of this year’s event, but for now we can reveal that this year’s Carnival of Souls will be held at Zanzibar Nightclub, Derby on Sunday the 15th of October.

We hope to see you all there!

Trevor Bamford (Nightbreed Recordings)


............ZANZIBAR?!?!?!?!?..............WHY?!?!?!
