A few things done, half a million to go...  
Yup, got a wee bit done tonight, but not much.

Good thing? I've got a week off work!!!


Did I write anything? Nope. How far am I behind on my quota -- a good 8.000 words when tomorrow comes around. Am I worried? Not particularly *g*

What HAVE I gotten done?

I've ordered Nicci's birthday present from amazon UK and have asked them to giftwrap it for me.

What else to do? I've gotta tidy and unpack the rest of the boxes this week (yes, it's only been 6 months since I moved...)

If at any point this week...  
I tell you to sod off or something similarly unpleasant?

Don't take it personally. It's that time of the month and my mood's foul.

So, in advance, if I'm more rude than usual? (too bad I'm not ginger either). Please bear with me.

Only highlight of the day? Coming home to find the first season of Babylon 5 on my doorstep... at only 14 quid ^_____^

And I sketched a naughty tonight *beams*

In space no one can hear you scream  
Maybe that should've been 'at work' instead of space XD

I'm so knackered today and I just know I won't be able to find time for fannish stuff for the next few weeks. I'll be working hard to just get through the days.

Things that might eventually kill me:

* Work
* shoulder/neck
* work

Real life seems to be trying to kill me.

Night between Wednesday and Thursday I managed to sleep in a wrong position. Thursday morning? I couldn't turn my head to the left and barely an inch to the right. Oddly enough, working helped loosen the muscles a bit, but I'm still stiff as feck.

Friday night we (work) were invited to the university shindig. Food, entertainment and a Runrig concert afterwards. I drank, I sang -- I'm hoarse today -- and still got up to go to work this morning -- we were open from 11 to 1 but I didn't go home till 4. There's so much stuff that needs doing before we open the doors on Monday morning to the hordes of students.

*takes deep breath and tries not to scream*

I'm glad I have a skype appointment with Nicci later tonight.

So, for the near future, I'll barely be a blip on the radar. Don't worry, I'll be back ...eventually XD

*counts down the days to go drool over David Tennant and Patrick Stewart...*

Whoa, talk about luck  

That's... pretty amazingly done -- considering that we were behind by several goals with less than a minute to go? and we played worse than shite most of the time... yet, we won by one goal...

And before you ask, yes, we have a TV at work, yes we make sure to walk by it a lot when there's a game on ... like today XD

Friends appreciation meme  
If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Home Jiggety Jig  
Hello one and all -- I am now home safe and sound.

The trip home was better than out -- we had tailwind instead of headwind, so we made it into Copenhagen airport 15 mins ahead of schedule. This in turn meant I could catch a train earlier than I'd expected, bringing me into Odense at 9pm instead of 10pm local time. It meant I made it into the supermarket before it closed at 10 and I now have had a bit to eat and there's food for breakfast tomorrow morning ^_^

*hugs everyone*

Thank you for being with me for the past nearly three weeks of mad wandering around the lovely southern part of Scotland.

Thankfully I've got a few days before heading back to work on Monday, so I should be capable of moving without wincing XD

Simon, you sexy bastard...  
I have learned truths tonight.

1. Duran Duran is even better live than on CD

2. Simon Le Bon is still one sexy, cheeky bastard *melts*

Did I mention...  
How much I hate warm weather? I mean, it'd be okay if it was just, you know, WARM, but it has to jump to 28C and the sun burns like big ball of burning ga... eh, that's what it is I know, but still... *flops down on couch*

Gotten done last night/today:

* Downloaded and watched DW -- enjoyed it muchly.

* Created 30 images out of appx 132 for my new lj moodtheme... it was supposed to be Jack and Ianto, but so far it's been Ianto more than anything else -- seems that boy has a facial expression fitting for every mood XD

* Unpacked 5 boxes this morning, 9 to go XD

* Put laundry on

Life, where did you go?  
Today came and went. I managed to paint the old flat - so tomorrow I'll be going back after work to clean the last stuff away, including paint and assessorries.

I went over to start painting at nine this morning... I came home at half past seven in the evening... Yes, I'm knackered LOL utterly so. But, at least it's a step forward having gotten that done. Now I just have to call the people who handle the flats and get their word for it being okay and I can hand over the keys.

The painting and running up and down the ladder also means that I hurt in places I didn't even know could hurt XD -- including my right hand which feels completely crippled. Of course I'm ignoring it and typing away, but I'm sure it'll be stiff in the morning. I have, however, started revising Companion's Companion 2 -- which means I've edited 10 pages tonight -- that was the easy part. Now I have to delete a good 15 pages -- the ending and rewrite it from scratch? Why? Because I didn't like it and I got better ideas XD -- besides, my beta called me on that half and I reread and realized that it's a horrible jumble I can't really save as it is -- I'm doing everyone and favor by holding off posting and actually rewriting the story -- like Nicci mentioned tonight, it's almost liberating to just mark it all off (the problem section, no matter the amount of pages) and hit delete. I didn't like how Ianto turned out and Jack felt flat -- which means rewriting is the only way out -- I'm not posting any sort of half-arsed dredge.

On another note, I had a bit of a nostalgia trip tonight. I ended up listening to M√ľnchener Freiheit -- german pop band from the 80s -- it's been at least ten years since I've heard these songs and the scary thing? I can still sing along to them XD
Current Music: M√ľnchener Freiheit - Tausend Mal Du
