It was just a few nights ago, but I still feel it.
You know how it is. Something really makes you cry hard, and your eyes feel swollen for ages after. Looking in the mirror you see that they're bloodshot as well, so it's about impossible to deny that the tears were coming out in buckets.

Next time you can be sure I'll be sitting up when I have a wank. Getting splooge in your eyes fucking HURTS.

A Recipe.
Sarson's pre-spiced pickling spirit vinegar. Schwartz's pickling spice. Midget Peppers.

Boil pre-spiced spirit vinegar and empty both sachets of pickling spice (effectively making 3x the spice quantity). Leave boiling for 10 minutes to infuse the spirit vinegar further. Meanwhile chop the midget peppers into slices. Fill up the jar with the chopped peppers. When the vinegar/spice has cooled put in the jar with the chopped peppers. Seal jars and leave for two weeks for the spices and vinegar to infuse the peppers.

After two weeks, open a jar and try out your new super-pickle. Drop a single slice into your mouth. Chew.

The vinegar fumes will enter your sinus cavity causing you to involuntarily gasp and suck the triple spiced spirit vinegar into your lungs.

That made me cry a bit.

My daughter loves Frozen, and enjoys listening to the soundtrack when we are in the car together.
Which is a shame, as both Do you want to build a snowman and Let it go will invariably fill my eyes with tears, making driving more hazardous than usual.
Difficult to nonce-punch a copper when you're blubbing, too.

The bit
where they beat up Johnny 5 in Short Circuit 2.

And the last bit of AI.

And the bit with the tiny robot rebuilding the mosaic in Batteries not Included.

And the end of Bicentennial Man.


Basically all my manly tears moments are caused by robot films.

Any time someone is reunited with a long-lost family member.

Also when someone is unexpectedly good at something on a talent show.

It's weird, I don't really feel any different but I just start crying. Not weeping, just tears coming out.

Knowing how easy it is to overreact, say the wrong thing, say "no" too often and generally be a bit of a shit parent, knowing that it's all too easy to make mistakes and that you only get one chance to deal with a situation when it comes up.

Dont get me wrong, I'm not bleating about myself, I worry mostly about how it affects my kids, how they must see a slightly unhinged bedraggled dad for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night, bombard him with their day and not always get the same level of excitement and passion back.

I love my kids, but it makes me sad when I go to bed knowing I dealt with something badly because I was tired or just incapable, at that moment in time of taking a step back and giving them a hug. I hope the good times outweigh the bad.

I hope they'll be alright when they are older, I don't earn a lot and therapy is expensive.

Sally Thomsett was 20 when she appeared in the Railway Children
3 years older than Jenny Agutter.

Having a nonce decoy on a film set in the 70s was probably a good idea

"Even the film crew were unaware of her age, and they gave her sweets"
