In other news: we finally got a look at Dosk's "assessment".

The fucker left out his medical condition.

Apparently, this is all dyspraxia.

Apparently, the doctor thinks he can lie to his patient.

Apparently, the doctor can break his own obligations.

Apparently, my brother should get a copy of the assessment before he leaves the building.

Apparently, I am a very angry woman

Apparently, my brother is in the room and reading this.

Accurately, I'm going to stop this entry

Accurately, he's crying

Accurately, i feel like shit writing like this

Accurately, i love my brother most in the whole world.
Sometimes fear is not negotiable.

It doesn't stop me thinking we are on the verge of WWW3.

nw I am making me cry

hugh huh (twitch)
Dosk just got a phone call: he is "officially" not disabled enough to get benefits. You may know this:

My brother can't

* walk distances (like anywhere more than 250yds on a good day)
* walk across rooms (on a bad day)
* sit (his joints don't like him)
* stand still (and not fall over)
* get out of chairs (on a bad day)
* more of the same
* write comprehensibly
* do any small motor control things
* lift things
* stop his knees falling backwards

My brother can

* spend an afternoon in a room with a person who lies.

cross stitch: birdy
epic panic this morning re: timekeeping/lunch/morning/clothes/work . then today's "work" didn't happen because the key-man didn't come and so we couldn't be in. this would have been better without the second epic panic/anxiety attack thing. meep. i ended up going to bed once home again as an escape route (which I shouldn't but I do).

Droopy: radio
ONL arrived to "work" incredibly late. He came in wearing his monstrous suit (dogtooth tweed) and a ginormous rosette with purple ribbon - "vote leave". His car has a big sign up in the window. Scarily, there is a huge sign in his car and I don't (and do) want to know what he is doing with it.

Today is pretty good - lunch out with the brother and buying a Dark Knight Returns.

[Not because I tried to explain to one of my co-workers my theory of Frank Miller... DC want you to buy a hard-back collected edition. no way. I am not paying for dksa twice, I'm still traumatised by buying it once - £7 an issue and you'll be traumatised too]

[dksa - the dark knight strikes again - epic Miller!fail in three issues (£7ea), as a student, that is a lot of money for prolonged fail - issue one was interesting in the set-up and seemed to have a least the ghost of dkr after that... there was 'hos and bitches and superman bangin' Wonder Woman]

[because he's the goddam!Batman]

dS manga: ben with wings
56 French schoolchildren (surprisingly well behaved).

Told ONL that "crayon" means "pencil" in French, hopefully stopping years of confusion. Explaining brass rubbing (using wax crayons) in a language you stopped studying 16 years ago is... très intéressant*

*merci a google - I can't do accents

animal: omg llamas!
Dosk is backing a crowd-funded 3d printer that operates using a smart phone.

It uses the phone screen to cure the 3d resin. That makes it so much clearer

Just a very quick entry...

nightcrawler: sleeping
...back from "work"

best bit: five year old running around, "this is already the best thing ever!" and he'd only seen the diorama*. explaining things to kids = win.

The fossilised hippopotamus got a lot of attention too.

*It's big model (2 metres wide) of the town as seen in the roman period and it is pretty nifty.
