I will certainly be telling my kids about santa and all the joy he brings :)
Will you tell your kids that Santa is one that gives them presents? Seems a bit stupid to me, but EVERYONE seems to do it.
What if my child accidentally brutally ruined a fragile child with a cold explanation of what Father Christmas really was?
the other kid cried and his mum had a stern word with my mum in the playground.

Our culture is dying. :(
because the cunts who live in my place can't close a gate properly, refuse to only flush bodily waste and shit-box paper down the crapper and have no desire to use the bins properly.
One of my teeth fell out and I lost it like an idiot. So I wrote a note and left it under my pillow. My mother wrote back saying that I should be more careful. I knew it was her hand writing. She didnt even try and disguise it!

I had my suspicions.
So I rigged up my LEGO TECHICS set in such a way that as soon as the door to my room was opened on Christmas eve a hydrolic lever thingy would extend and push the button on my camera (aimed at the door). I would then be able to develop the photos (pre-digital cameras all this malarky) and have EVIDENCE on way or another.
It turned out to be fairly conclusive actually: the camera got pushed off the shelf and smashed onto the floor - I heard it break and I heard my Dad swearing.
I hope you've been brought down a few pegs since.

This one is unusual because as soon as I brought the issue of his realness up with my mum she said it was nonsense. Weird but admirable parents, straight to the point.

what stopped you believing in atheism?
and thought that seeing the world in terms of fate and god existing was much more fascinating. I think this is because I was brought up with no religion so had never considered it before. It makes me worry less because I feel as if there is an order to the universe that is beyond my comprehension and have faith that there is justice in the world. It's very common though I think, often you hear people turn to religion after a rough patch of their life and my teenage years were definitely that...it's more vague spiritual interest than a specific religion though 'cause labels r rubbish.
Well, that's the gayest post I ever made.

you had an imaginary friend until recently?! Omg that's so cute/lame. What was he like?
not imaginary, i just found out he's a massive racist and lost all respect for the chap.
he's a really cool guy... got me into talk talk, coen brothers, neil gaiman. bummed out by it really.
i'd never talked to him about that sort of stuff but asked who he was voting for when the election date got out. i can forgive it in stupid people but he's a really smart lad... i'd never considered it - he wears a public enemy tshirt near constantly.
yeah, odd. fuck it.
i knew i should never have stopped the fear.
it takes all the fear out of it.
but I did think that the bears would get me. But only in London. Thanks AA Milne.
I used to believe that for every drop of rain that fell, a flower grew. Bullshit, that.
