Hostage, Halloween, drumming and Cher..oh my!

Hey everyone. How are you all enjoying your new home here on blogger?
It was a shame to say goodbye to aol journals on Friday, especially knowing some people didn't get their journals transferred (sorry D)


Well, I need to update more often in little parts 'cos there's so much been goin on lately. I sometimes just puke my thoughts out on here all in one go, which is what I'm going to do now I'm!

Firstly, I can't go into too much detail with this, but I was kinda held hostage at work by a youth worker who's flipped out 2 weeks ago. She was having a psychotic episode as me and a colleague got stuck with her. She screamed in our faces, grabbed my colleague by her throat, pinched her arm so much, it bled, obsessed over my name. She couldn't stop saying 'Steven Moore'. It was very creepy and VERY scary. She also got very paranoid that I was after her banking details. She grabbed my work and wrote sexual stuff on it. We got away as quickly as we could (after 20 mins of being stuck with her), but unknown to us at the time, after we'd gone home, she attacked someone so severely that she's now locked up. I did go back down the day after to report the incident before anyone, or even herself got hurt, but it was too late.

I dunno if she's in jail or an asylum, but when I gave my statement to my boss's and the police, I was told that she's suspended from work and is 'Being looked after and getting the help that she needs'. I can't get her eyes out of my head. That piercing stare she was giving me. She's such a beautiful Italian lady. Apparently, she has worked for the company for years and is a lovely, hard working person. I can't help but wonder what happened to her that day to make her crack the way she did, but take my word for it, it was very scary!

Anyways, on to other stuff. I took part in an 'African Drummers' session last Wednesday in the centre as part of 'Black History Month'. They were there to teach the kids how to drum, but I ended up sitting in and enjoying it too. By the end, I was drumming and singing the song 'I can see clearly now'..haha! It was awesome!! I enjoyed talking to the guy about our different cultures, traditions and beliefs. It was very eye opening.

I'm actually quite sad today as I think about a whole bunch of friends that I've fell out with. It's a long story, but basically, it started with 4 of them having a fall out. I told all of them to keep me out of it 'cos it had nothing to do with me, but I eventually had to get involved after a few of them were publicly bitching and name calling my other friend. I hate taking sides, but I don't like bullies and never will. This had lead to even more arguments and more people getting involved, and it's just too much. I've never actually had stuff like this before. Horrible aint it??

I hope you all had a great Halloween. I certainly did. Now we gotta get 'bonfire night' out of the way on the 5th November, and then it's the build up to Christmas. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Anyways, I'll leave you with a funny. These two are my FAVOURITE comediens EVER and I'm gonna miss them so much when they retire. This is the best impression of Cher that I've ever seen. It had me crying with! Hope you like it. Till next time, bon!
