My bank account I have had since I was 18 is HSBC (previosuly Midland bank who didn't suck as much). Sporadically I try and break free and get at least a better credit card, but becuase the mofos at HSBC only report BAD credit activity to the credit agencies, it appears on my record I've never had any credit, depsite 13 years of almost perfect behaviour with my mastercard (I'm sure I've forgotternt o pay on tiem a few times over 13 years, but 99% months it is paid of in full). This seems to count as WORSE with other companies than if I'd credit and been an idiot and got into problems with it . . . ARGHHH. I couldn't even get a new mobile phone contract a few years back for credit reasons. I've paid to see my results from all 3 agencies . . they all rate me as good etc, but the only 2 things that appears are my mobile phone contract and my savings account, not my 13 fucking years of perfect behaviour with HSBC.

So HSBC have me bent over ready to be assfucked - they can piss me around, but I can't get another credit card (which I want because HSBC piss me off so much) because they don't report my 13 years of good behaviour to the agencies (I've even been into a branch and told them that the internet says I cna sign something to agree to let them pass on positive info but was met with blank wall).

Anyway, finally managed to get accepted on one of those 'credit building' credit cards for timmies that have really bad credit ratings, even though mine is 'excellent' . . .even they threatened they might not accept me if I had 'no credit history'. Anyway, best I fix it now before i need a mortgage or something.

Fuck you HSBC

I'm on day 5 of a headache. I think I get these monster headaches about once every 2 months. They shift from Migraine to other types of headache and just as you've solved one they shift into another type. Migraines can be solved with triptans and some of the others can be dulled with anadin or codeine but nothing really works that well. Still, I still take pills anyway sometimes to feel like I'm doing something because people but their judgy face on when you say there's no point as the drugs won't do anything. They seem to assume you are just lazy and using the headache as an excuse. Towards the end of these multi-day ones I'm pretty sure they are rebound headaches from all the pills so at some point you have to man up and brave a day or 2 without drugs. I can't convey quite how depressing it is waking up with the exact same headache you went to bed with, with the prospect of having to live through a whole new work day (or day of dancing with annoyingly chirpy people) before any prospect of relief or rest. During the time I have them I zombie my way thorough doing the minimum possible at work to get by and soldier through my spare time and feel shit about everything and hate my life (more than usual).

I know some of you will be saying 'well go to the bloody doctor' because some people have lived a luckily simple life and had normal problems that are within the 10 conditions that GP can actually competently treat . . . . the last time I tried the very admission that some of my headaches are not migraines meant they tried to reduce my migraine prescription. I think there just aren't painkillers that will kill my pain that aren't basically narcotics that would render me unable to work anyway. Even the illegally strong codeine (its like 10x the legal UK OTC dose) from Thailand only dulls the pain and makes me a bit high so I don't care. Its doesn't actually remove the pain.

It doesn't help when assholes complain about their 'headache' that lasted all of 2 hours and was solved with one, ONE fucking paracetamol (called acetaminophen in some other countries). Fuck off. I hate that when other people ask for a painkiller that is usually a dose of 2 pills and then only take one. What the fuck am I supposed to do with one lone painkiller (except maybe take 3 in one go and hope I don't damage myself?)? Or people that get all judgy about the fact I'm taking codeine - until you've had my head for a few years you can fuck off

I don't know where this is leading . . I'm just depressed, angry and feel shit and needed a moan. Poor N could do with a break from hearing about it! It makes me not look forward to anything in life because all I can imagine is what a chore that particular event would be with a headache, I imagine my entire life though a headache lens.

Looks like a scam, but I can't work out what they are trying to achieve?  I guess that phone number costs a bajillion pounds an hour . . .but is it really worth all that effort to scam a few bellydancers?

Just seen on Bhuz that Leila, producer of my favourite Cds ever, has another one coming out and its all Tarab stuff sung by Safaa (including Akteb Aleik,  which i know will make a lot of people happy!)

Hopefully Kay or Aladdin's cave will have some at JoY!

So glad that Yasmina, Leila, and Outi carry on spending their money on making these amazing Cds in the face of pirating etc that goes on.    Wonder whether Lorna will make one soon?

I still havea headache.  I took the rather radical descision to pull a sickie.  Technically the pain isn't bad enough I would normally do that, but its the fact its been like this since Saturday evening, its exhausting putting up with it.  Head pain is so impossible to do anything else through - if it was a leg or something at least I could still use my head.  Ot at least mine is . . I do occasioanly get what must be those 'normal' headaches that 'normal' people get where you are fine and a few paracetamol works.  This is not one of those.

Anyway, after N left for work I crashed out for 3 solid hours and I still feel shit.  Wonder whether I'm also experiening a slight reaction to the Typhoid immunisation on Monday?  No fever or anything but headache is my body 's first line response, and I do feel slightly 'wrong' and achey.  Its a bit lame taking a day off for that though!!

You know I'm properly ill as I can't be bothered to find a DVD or anything, I jsut want to go back to bed.  SO that's something.  Still feel guilty through.

One of these things is not like the others

a) Floods in Oz
b) Earthquake in NZ
c) People being killed in Libya
d) Inevitable cuts in public spending by the British government (whoever was in charge) meaning we will live slightly more frugal lifestyles and afford less holidays and big TVs

They should start making pant(ie)s and similar garments with cup sizes.  Sick of buying stuff that only contains half my ass and gives an attractive 4 cheek motif.  No, it isn't a case of just going a bigger size, much as is isn't with bras, I need volume not a bigger hip measurement or extra fabric in front!!

I am endlessly jealous of people who say 'I just wear some dance briefs' or 'I just got some bikinin bottoms' to wear under my costume like you just buy something and it holds everything in safely and doens't give horrible lines . .  . . and why I usually end up with bike shorts.

Just had this problem with a body stocking which fits perfectly except it seems to be made for someone with no ass and the fabric is so strong it cuts my butt in two.


Isis wings

Anyone got suggestions for where to get Isis wings in the UK? Or Europe vendors?

I only need them for a quick swish and drop on 22nd Jan, but all the cheap and cheerful ebay options are in China or Egypt and might not get here in time


Cheapest I've found so far is bellydancestore (I know they can ship timely) wihcih work out about £60 with shipping
