[Bisexuality] Bigamy With A Twist

Posted by Lex Fear on April 3, 2007

From BBC News:
Lesbian on ceremony bigamy charge

A woman has appeared in court accused of going through a civil partnership ceremony with her lesbian partner while still being married to a man.

Suzanne Mitchell, 29, of Wingfield Gardens, Shrewsbury, appeared before the town’s magistrates on Thursday.

The mother-of-three denied making a false statement to a registrar when she married Caroline Beddowes in a civil partnership ceremony last February.

The case was referred to the crown court and Mrs Mitchell was given bail.

I suspect I have lost all my readers but to anyone passing, thoughts?

[Jokes] Love and Marriage

Posted by Lex Fear on March 31, 2007

My better half forwarded these to me this morning:

Its funny when people discuss over “love marriage” and “arranged marriage”
It is like asking a person if he would like to “hang himself” or “shoot himself”.

————————————————————–
Every man should get married some time; after all, happiness is not the only thing in life!!

————————————————————–
Don’t marry for money; you can borrow it cheaper. –Scottish Proverb

————————————————————–
A psychiatrist is a person who will give you expensive answers that your wife will give you for free.

————————————————————–
Bachelors know more about women than married men; if they didn’t, they’d
be married too.

————————————————————–
– Marriage is a three-ring circus:
–engagement ring
—wedding ring
—suffering

————————————————————–
When a newly married couple smiles, everyone knows why. When a ten-year married couple smiles, everyone wonders why.

————————————————————–
Love is blind but marriage is an eye-opener.

————————————————————–
We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

————————————————————–

[Love] Just Maui’d!

Posted by Lex Fear on November 25, 2006

The wedding photo’s are in, but they’re a bit disorganised at the moment as they are mostly digital and need to be sorted through. One of the benefits of getting married on a beach in Hawaii is the photo’s, but make sure you get your guests to take photos too, as the hired photographer may miss images like this.

Nothing beats this, the best wedding I’ve attended, and D is the certainly one of the best things to happen to me. I’m not sure how she feels being referred to as Mrs Fear, but for the purpose of the blog that’s going to be her title.

One warning, if you are going to get Maui’d on the beach at 3pm, don’t wear a tux, especially if it’s 85f. I almost fainted.

[I’ll Be Back] Whatever Happened to Alex Fear?

Posted by Lex Fear on November 25, 2006

Well in short, after getting married in October I’ve had no time nor (free) Internet connection to do any blogging. We came back to the UK early November and immediately went flat hunting in West London. Having now found a flat in Ealing, we are awaiting free broadband from TalkTalk which I am told will be installed at the latest 26th December. Which means my posts will be few and far between.

I’ve found a free WIFI connection in Chiswick at the Natural Cafe. I’m not much for organic food but I suspect I shall be ordering multiple latte’s on a Saturday as I make use of their generosity.

Currently I’m at my parent’s house this weekend so I’m making use of their WiFi connection, and I have much to tell. Aside from comments to make on my observations of the news both in America and the UK, I have some comments to make on some organisations of which we have been unfortunate enough to require their services.

I’ve done some rethink on the ethos of Abandon All Fear. I’ve decided that AAF is going in a new direction. From now on Abandon All Fear will be about real experiences with inept organisations and companies and based as much as possible on my own personal experience and observations. On the other hand, the Dark Side of the Light is going to be devoted to challenging the accepted wisdom and bringing my own insight and understanding, particularly with regards to faith. Of course these will both continue to be laced with my own peculiar brand of humour and satire. I also intend to reserve my comments on other blogs, instead referencing and addressing interesting posts here.

If all goes well, normal blogging will resume in January 2007, hopefully sooner.

[Travel] Oh, Canada!

Posted by Lex Fear on October 13, 2006

Tomorrow I fly out to Canada for my first visit. I’ll be meeting some of my new family and exploring for a week then flying down to Maui to get married to my ultra sexy Canadian fiancee, D, who is not feeling very ultra or sexy right now as she has a cold.

I will be flying into Calgary and possibly staying overnight. We’ll do some shopping and more importantly look for our rings.

I had to give up on the parking ticket and pay it off. The courts were demanding the money and since I will be away for 3 weeks I won’t be able to defend. However I intend to see if it’s possible to lodge a complaint against the Central Fine Oriffice or potentially sue the council for misleading road markings- I’ll keep you updated.

I don’t know if I will have time to blog anything of particular relevance, however I might try to post some images I take with my digital camera. For now, however, I will leave you with recommendations for some excellent blogs and sites.

If you’re looking for some deep conversation from an open Christian perspective then check out Dead Yet Living, though it’s mostly run by students so the blog seems to have gone into recession recently. If you’re of the political persuasion and are interested in an alternative to the evil Christian Right, God’s Politics might be for you, I read Jim Wallis’s book this summer and it altered or confirmed my perspectives on many things. There’s always a lively debate going on at Mark DeHoog’s blog and Nowheresville.

Southampton University CU Chaplain writes some very witty commentary on life at the university and beyond. Please visit, especially if you are far away, because the site stats will really confuse him. If you’re looking purely for laughs, I recommend the aptly named Hot Chicks with Douchebags, or the irreverent Chase me ladies, I’m in the cavalry.

If you are interested in UK law, you should check out The Magistrate’s Blog for an eye-opener into the thoughts of a magistrate, You’re Nicked is another coppers blog, where, if you are like me, you may be surprised to find similar views to your own. Bill Sticker is Walking the Streets hoping to issue you a PCN for parking on double-yellows. Speaking of which Neil Herron is one man taking a stand against the system- and inspiring others.

For straight up politics and current events Kel writes excellent commentary on The Osterley Times. The Gun Toting Liberal also offers some great commentary, and Snafu asks some probing questions at Not Proud Of Britain (But Would Like To Be). For political protest, look no further than Tales of the Freewayblogger, I’m sorely tempted to join in this fun and start it up here in the UK.

Help – The Bailiffs are here!

I’ve had some hits from people googling for what to do about Bailiffs turning up for unpaid fines and parking tickets discovering this blog and finding just a rant. Therefore if you are one of those people looking for legal help, you will probably need to contact a solicitor, however there is some research you can do before then to get you in the picture and understand your rights. Check out my links to Social Justice & Responsibility on the sidebar. There is nothing specific about bailiffs, however you will find links that will lead you to information that will be helpful in your situation. Also check out my previous post: Thick As Legal Thieves.

If you find that you have a speeding or parking ticket you may want to check out Neil Herron’s blog, the forums at Pepipoo and the Association of British Drivers website. If you feel you are being persecuted by authorities in anyway and need to know your rights check out Your Rights, Liberty or get in contact with Justice.

Are the banks giving you hassle, over-charging you in fines or harassment? Go to the Consumer Action Group forums or Penalty Charges.

Have you been ripped off/mis-sold a product or concerned about a rogue trader? Visit Rip-Off Britain and get tips from the Money Saving Expert.

Hope to hear from you soon!
