Well pooh. Got it close.
Gotta love the blackcaps: we're shit; hey we're in it; fuck we're going to win; we're shit: fuck we're going to win; hey we're in it; fuck we're going to win; we're shit; ok we didn't do so bad ...
Have realised google is my friend and have been perusing the Beyond Blue website: https://www.youthbeyondblue.com/understand-what's-going-on/self-harm-and-self-injury .
Might get Ms boo to read that so she can get an understanding of the potential dangers.
X can be quite highly strung so I'm guessing she is prone to worrying.
As for who she thinks her Mum is seeing I can see there is potential complication there. Dont want to go into details as it will sound soap opera ish and frankly I don't believe it as he'd be a league or two out of his depth as it were ... but I'm sure he's got a nice personality. I think X has put 2 and 2 together and got pi squared.
Am leaning towards contacting the school counselor. And pushing Ms boo to read and understand more of the issues. And to keep an eye out for more signs. Being 13 I'm pretty sure she and her mates want to believe it is all hunky dory now that X says it is.
Dear Agony Aunts ...
My daughter is 13. Great kid (not that I am biased).
She has 13yo friends (well some, including subject of said dilemma, are still 12... but that is splitting hairs). They are also generally pretty good kids. Not as good as Ms boo but, you know, nobody is...
Girls at times can be bitches to each other and have been in the past. Ms boo has been on the end of some of that hazing occasionally but not in this case. I relate this only because we mistook her demeanour leading up to this as reaction to her being teased or excluded.
One of her friends, lets call her X, has in the last year had her parents break up. Dad has moved on with new partner. Mum is enjoying being single.
Ms boo organises sleepover for her three close friends including friend above. However Ms boo seems to be particularly keen to suck up to X, starts making cards telling her how awesome she is etc. (This prior to sleepover).
Mrs boo notices and thinks she must be being picked on and is trying to ingratiate herself. Mrs boo is a little over sensitive.
Anyway ... Ms boo confides in me that X is having issues with her Mum who she thinks is seeing someone and is lying to her. As a result she has self harmed. Essentially scratching the living daylights out of her wrists. Has ready made excuse for scars being scratching was from pet (a pet duck in fact).
Ms boo has told me this in strictest confidence. I am not even to tell Mrs boo as she will tell X's Mum etc.
Dilemma arises from
A potential good thing is X has let her friends know what is happening so it's not something she is doing in total secret. They're all complicit to the pet duck story.
I remain conflicted.
According to Ms boo they have talked at length and she thinks it's a one off and so everything is ok. But if it is not ... ?
Help and advice appreciated.
@NTA Seriously. Can't he post it on a blog and link to it? There's a point to twitter - brevity. Make your statement within its parameters: 140 characters. A Director of US Foreign Disaster Assistance who can't even do that simple shit right, imagine what a festering cunt he was to work with.
Maybe he couldn't be arsed setting up a blog, or having someone to put it up in his behalf.
That's beyond the fact it's a couple of hundred words in what basically amounts to bullet point. Faster to deliver by Twitter and more likely to spread.
It takes the same effort. The fact he can't select the appropriate medium speaks volumes for what sort of Director he would have been.
Instead of this little distraction, why don't you criticise what he actually wrote?
Dealing with bird flu, ebola, etc. is actually quite simple: Immigration controls.
Really? I assume you're trying humour?
@Baron-Silas-Greenback Didn't I read that the wiretap was on the Russian ambassador, not on Flynn? I'd have thought they'd at least attempt to tap every single communication with the Russians that they can, not just official ones.
Edit - sorry, Crucial was way ahead of me. Ignore me.
So? It is still illegal to wiretap a US citizen without going through legal channels.
That boat sailed under Obama. The infrastructure they setup over the past decade makes the recent 1984 bleating seem far too late.
Been watching a doco on SBS. "The United State of Secrets". That boat sailed under GWB.
Reminds me of a winger that got the ball on the half ... over 40m line ... over the 22 ... over the 5m ... over the try line ... over the dead ball line ... over the NEXT dead ball ... over the NEXT try line ... around behind the posts
Seriously. Senior Reserves* in the Waikato. (* may have been called Sen B ... 2nd XV senior 1st div club rugby ... Putaruru v Tok HSOB ... thankfully they weren't very good and we won by 40)
"Forrest" would have been ideal ... but it may have been before the movie came out ...
I thought Luatua had a very good Super season last year and deserved his AB recall. He looked like a viable backup to Read.
I'm still not convinced about Squire (as a starter especially) and Dixon went backwards last year, so having depth in the loose forwards was a positive.
I agree. Although I don't think Dixon went backwards. He just stayed where he was.
Personally think he is a big loss and I expected him to be the next in line behind Kaino.
So stand up Akira. Park your anger issues and start to play.
@Stargazer Wishful thinking as a Hawke's Bay fan.
Savea will be picked if in decent form so it's between NMS and Dagg for the no.14 jersey. NMS has only ever played on the right wing for the ABs.
"in decent form" being the operative words. Savea hasn't had that form for a long time. Naholo hasn't been convincing either.
One thing is clear, with Jordie also in the mix, Dmac will probably get few chances in black.
Don't want to keep White Knighting Savea but his form in black has been fine. He ripped the Wallabies a new one at Eden Park to ensure we took the record consecutive test wins when they were seriously pushing us that game - or have you forgotten that already?
Canes fans can feel a bit aggrieved at his form in 2015, but other then that he's been pretty solid. 'Solid' isn't good enough for Savea detractors though, if he's not playing like Lomu reincarnated then he should be dropped.
There's also the obvious point that the AB selectors want at least one strong ball runner in their back three to compliment two fullbacks, so he's really competing with Naholo who has been inconsistent at best in black.
Quoted so it gets reiterated.
The commentators were just talking about the temperature at the stadium. Apparently, it's 34 degrees in the shadow. If they are considering organising a 10s tourney next year again, should it really be held in Brisbane. These conditions are insane!
Sydney had been hotter than Brisbane the last two days ....
Heat v humidity v both
Veitch talking to Hansen ..
First up re buggate. Then other stuff ...
Then stuff on Patrick Tuipolutu.
@rotated you mean "in cahoots" ...
No I mean they maybe have an axe to grind with this fellow. It seems strange to charge him for public nuisance in a matter like this when it appears the police wouldn't have the full cooperation of the NZRU testifying against him. They must really want to charge him.
Sorry dude ... was meaning when you said: "Just seems like a tricky case to prosecute when Hansen and the ABs seem 100% behind him."
Obviously, according to the Ockers that means they were in cahoots ...
