KOOL-AID: and so i speak

Now I understand the fear of that poor nurse trying to wake me when I had concussion as a kid. I failed last night. Fell asleep in the armchair next to Landlord’s bed. Woke to the sound of my alarm. Suspected it had been going for a while. Looked over to Landlord — had kept … Continue reading KOOL-AID: and so i speak

my uterus thanks you

Why hello! Currently, I am suffering through the bloody mess which is my period. Yes, that’s right. I just mentioned the ‘p’ word. As a woman, we’re not supposed to, right? Yet, as a woman who bleeds like a murder victim several times a month (yup, you heard me right), it’s part of my life, … Continue reading my uterus thanks you

guess the mutual friend

Right. So I’ve just come up wth the best. Game. Ever. You can thank me later. Actually, no, you can thank me now… You’re welcome. The game is called ‘Guess the Mutual Friend’ and all you need to play is a Facebook account. Now, let’s face it. We all have one of those. Am sure … Continue reading guess the mutual friend

what YouTube beauty channels don’t tell you

I’ve really been enjoying YouTube at the moment. In particular, beauty tutorials. Have never really been the makeup type. In the past I may have tipped my hat at makeup every now and then with some mascara and maybe, just maybe, eyeliner. I remember when I left home to live in the ‘big city’ and … Continue reading what YouTube beauty channels don’t tell you

KOOL-AID: they’re looking for me

To say I’m scared is a massive understatement. See, when you’re in the cult, they know everything about you. Your family, your friends. Gruff had a visit from the cult. Suited bastards, he called them. Apparently, they are concerned for my safety. Worried about my mental well-being. Why else would I have left the church … Continue reading KOOL-AID: they’re looking for me

KOOL-AID: it’s all about the money

So. What happens when you’ve been in a cult for ten years, five of those spent devoted entirely to the “cause”? You have nothing. No money. No job. No credit history, no employment experience, no references, probably no family and certainly no friends. It’s worse, of course, for those who grow up in a cult. … Continue reading KOOL-AID: it’s all about the money

Welcome to Koolaid

Hello all and Happy New Year! I am now, officially, a year older (but, apparently, not wiser). For the last few months I have been writing a blog called Almost Drank the Koolaid, which I will now be featuring here on giorgethomas.com starting tomorrow. But I have a bit of explaining to do. So check … Continue reading Welcome to Koolaid

last night the duvet sent my anxiety off the rails. 

So last night I got into bed, hoping an episode of Location, Location, Location will prove to be just the right tonic for sleep to set in. (And yes, I am well aware of the link between device activity and insomnia. Just given me a break; I'm on holiday). The usual bed routine is mad … Continue reading last night the duvet sent my anxiety off the rails. 

it is what it is

Whatever it may be. You might be interested in my poetry, which can be at times disastrously dark, but always poignantly human. You may be interested in my thoughts. My random seizing on small moments which may seem insignificant, and probably are, yet will be noted all the same. You may have no interest at … Continue reading it is what it is
