Woah woah... He built the house himself... into a mountain? That's awesome.

Hired one of those digging machines to do most of the work but he did pretty much build the whole thing himself. Everyone in town thought it was really weird that this quiet English man had suddenly showed up and started camping out there in a caravan, thought it was even more weird when he started digging. The police actually pestered him a few times over it. Fucking hilarious looking back on it all really. I met him not long after he'd actually started building the place.

He even changed the plans he'd already made to make the place bigger than it would have been in order to accommodate me, I was all embarrassed at the time but in the long run it certainly seems to have been a good idea.

You remember the house Bilbo lived in the Lord of the Rings? It's a lot like that except it's in the side of a mountain not a hill.

So you are planning on creating a large family of giants to live in a cave-house somewhere by a mountain in Scotland?
I don't know if it's creepy, awesome, hilarious, or all three. Keep updating us about how it goes, I want to be there to comment when they inevitably put all this in a "Cracked" article.
Oh, and tell your boyfriend he's a freaking badass :shock:

Well yeah he ended up making it a lot bigger than he originally intended just so I wouldn't end up braining myself on the doorframes.
At the moment there's not many rooms in it. Just a main room (which is also where we sleep), the kitchen and a bathroom. Then there's the garage but that's another building.

Sounds cozy. Send pictures.

Certainly. They even have an article about Wales.
(Though I have to admit that "extreme shepherding" vid at the bottom is simply awesome.)

I would if I had one of those digital camera things. Although it would probably explode if I tried using it. This old computer is probably the most advanced thing I know how to use outside my work.

[*]Pushes the thread back onto the rails[*][/color]

I sometimes wish i had a disability. Like a missing eye. Hell if i know why.

The closest thing i have to a disability...? I suppose that i'm half as bad as Rin when it comes to getting to grips with reality. Simply put, i can be weird sometimes.

I have no idea if it counts, but I have Kallmann syndrome. Honestly, I don't think it's a big deal, but some people do.

Do you have anosmia or hyposmia?

Even though I formally have hyposmia, I can't smell anything except alcohol. Quite frankly, "anosmia" is the best part of the disease, I find the lack of LH and FSH (Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, aka the "Peter Pan" effect) much harder to deal with. I personally consider KS a pretty ''easy mode'' syndrome though, compared to other similar problems.

I have Tinnitus. And I guess you guys know about it already.

And yeah I hear a beeping noise all the time and I had it as long as I remember, I think I was actually born with it. Still... It isn't that big of a deal when you get used to it, but it's always there... watching me, steals the silent from me~! :D
