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 :) )

Well, actually it was tonight, and it was only one, and I'm pretty sure it was actually a shooting star. I was kind of pleased actually. I've never seen one before. I wasn't quick enough off the mark to make a wish though. Ho hum :/

Anyway, I ramble, so :

I hope it was lovely, relaxed and totally stress free.

Mine was pretty much the same as ever, and as such pretty ok (and no unnecessary stressing about having to make the BEST MEAL EVAR (we had pasta, followed by vegan icecream. It was nice)). Tomorrow sees the arrival of my brother and his brood, and, as such, the absolute nadir of my year. But it can't possibly be as appalling as last year, can it? *crosses fingers*

Ooh, look, pretties <3 )

I've sat down a few times over the last couple of weeks to post here, and just haven't been able to find any motivation at all, or think of anything much worth writing about. Of course, I probably still won't be able to think of anything worth posting writing about, but I'm not entirely sure why that should stop me :P

So yeah, lacking in motivation, inspiration, and everything else recently. God, I've not written a word of fiction since I finished that little piece of Ginny/Luna/Pansy ridiculousness. I was so wanting not to take two months on chapter 2 of my Narnia story (which is how long long it took me to write the first part), and now it's two and a half months later and I haven't even started yet. I made the mistake of starting to think about plot, and oh how I suck at plot. Every time I actually put pen to paper (hey, I'm old-fashioned like that :)) I get completely overwhelmed and then just start scribbling more notes on things that aren't particularly relevant to anything. Gah.
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is out on December 10th. I'm really hoping to have chapter 2 up then. I'll be very annoyed at myself if I don't.

And have I mentioned how much I'm looking forward to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader? I even went onto 'Into the Wardrobe' to see if they had anything to say about it. Of course, I'd completely forgotten that it's entirely dominated by rabid Christian evangelicals, which is the reason I stopped visiting in the first place. God, I loathe them, and they're particularly annoying because they have canon and the author's intentions on their side, and obviously they consider their own interpretation of the text to be the only valid one. Grrr.

Anyway, what else?
Ooooh, has anyone heard about Sucker Punch? It looks awesome. I have no idea what it's about, cos really the trailer doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense :D, but still, awesome.

Also, This is relevant to my interests :D. REDHEADS, YAY ♥ ♥ ♥
LOL. Sorry. Not obsessed, honest :p

Oh, and I'm posting this vid purely because I heard this song for the first time a couple of weeks ago (as part of a rather fabulous Assassin!Adrian Andrews mix (f-locked, because the person who made it was too bashful to post it publicly. Silly ♥ ) and I LOVE IT (really gonna have to get hold of the album). I don't even know Veronica Mars. Is it any good?

Oh, and one more thing. I'm a little late here, and it's been all around my flist for a few days so most of you probably already know about it, but for those of you who don't and may be interested, the Queerly Awesome Comment Ficathon is in full swing. Go, prompt, write, have fun :)

God, so busy. And obviously today I managed to fritter away most of today being all knackered and needing recover from the rest of the week. Annoying! (Also annoying: a boiler that only works about 50% of the time, and so I have to boil water to wash the other 50%. Twice, I've had someone to look at it, but because the fault is intermittent, it's kind of hard to track down. If it carries on, he'll have to start replacing the expensive bits. Boo).

The Skins Big Bang seems to be a massive success, and I'm very much enjoying my beta-ing duties. I occasionally think I've bitten off a little more than I can chew, but hey, I like doing it, so (it's like: I have actual permission to be pedantic at people, and they can't complain. How good is that? :p ).
And talking of the Skins BB, our glorious leader (AKA [ profile] shan_3414 :)) made this a few days ago, and god, it's so lovely. It makes all kinds of nostalgic. Just beautiful.
