So many emails to write, and comments to write/answer, and a killer case of writer's block to try and get over. Also, a to-read pile that makes me weep to look at it (I figured out a few years ago that it would take me at least five years to read the books I own that I haven't read yet. It would probably be more like 10 now. On the plus side, I'm sure they'll make excellent kindling when the zombie apocalypse comes. For which the following advice may be useful:D
Photobucket). However, I'm ridiculously tired and my sinuses are kicking off, so instead I'm spending the evening watching DVDs and spamming LJ with pretties. So, not too much change there then.
Prettttty :D )

So, I changed service provider, because my connection was intermittent at best and ridiculously slow. And that meant being without the internet for a whole week. And yes, I have limited access at work, and I resorted to cafes with wireless connections a couple of times, but god, it was painful.
I'm not quite sure when the internet stopped being something that was kind of useful for buying out-of-print books on eBay and became an absolute and fundamental necessity of life. I know it happened even before there were people in my life with whom the internet's my main form of communication, but obviously that makes all the difference.
Which is all to say, I don't post all that much, so you probably mostly haven't noticed that I've been gone, but I've missed you guys.
I have so much to catch up on, and so many comments to write. It may take me a while :)

The usual rambly under the cut :) )

I hardly ever do memes, but I've been BAD at posting recently (I plan far more posts than I actually make. I'm probably like a lot of people in that respect) and this is one of those classics that's been doing the rounds again recently, so I figured, what the hell!
The only difference here is that the characters must all be fictional, other than that, it's pretty self explanatory :p

[livejournal.com profile] cobalt_siren, who's lovely but, on the strength of this choice, EVIL, gave me three of my favourite characters ever. I've been pondering this for a couple of days, but I think I've come up with the perfect solution :D
HARDEST CHOICE EVER! )

Gah. Feel grotty.
I haven't been off work with anything other than "really can't be arsed today", or random excruciating sinus pain since 2006, so maybe it was past time. There was a time last night/this morning when I thought it might be the beginnings of flu. But no, just a stinking cold (with, of course, random excruciating sinus pain). I always feel a bit stupid giving a cold as a reason not to go into work, but I feel icky, so whatever. They're highly unlikely to sack me for taking a few days off. And anyway, I'm tired. I get five hours sleep a night at most, if I'm lucky, just cos I can't sleep for longer than that. So I think a few days of lying on the sofa, watching DVDs and letting stuff take care of itself for a while is sort of in order.

Cut for mostly pointless waffling )

Well, then. Insert random stuff here, I suppose.

Whitby was all sorts of fun, and the company was fab, and mostly good humoured. I may have drunk rather more gin (and whisky for that matter) than is technically healthy, and I definitely ate more cheese and fudge than my nominally vegan diet would suggest (I miss cheese ok? It's been over a decade, and I've never stopped missing it, and they don't make a decent non-dairy cheese. Trust me, I've looked).

A few days ago, [livejournal.com profile] blurubberband55 posted a Katie Fitch vid that [livejournal.com profile] crackfoxx made for her (the prompt was "Katie Fitch is awesome at life" to the tune of "I'm too sexy"). It may actually be the best thing ever, and it's one of the things things I've seen in the last few days that's brought home to me the total reversal of my opinion on Katie. I loathed her utterly when I first saw season 3, and for months afterwards. Now though? I just want to hug her. I love her so much. This vid may give you a clue as to why.

Cut for teh rambly )
