current mood: bouncy
current song: Scott Mills podcast

Hullo dere! Been a while. SO MUCH TO TELL, AVID LJ FOLLOWERS! *coughcough*
But until then, enjoy some pointlessness!

1. Can you cook?
I can, yeah, but I am rather lazy about these things. When I pull my finger out I can make some decent food, though.

2. What was your dream growing up?
Depends on what you mean, I guess. But I suppose my general dream has been to have a family and be happy.

3. What talent do you wish you had?
Drawing, definitely. Would love to be able to draw well.

4. Favorite place?
Barcelona is one of my favourite places in the world. That and Kenmare.

5. Favorite vegetable?
Ooooh, that's tricky. I'd say probably leek at the moment.

6. What was the last book you read?

The last one I finished was Good at Games by Jill Mansell, but am currently reading Kate Mosse's Labyrinth.

7. What zodiac sign are you?

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?
I did have my ears pierced, but after lots of ear infections and yuckiness I gave up on earrings and let the holes close up.

9. Worst Habit?
Erm... I don't know. I have lots of annoying habits, but not sure what my worst is. Probably constantly relating life to Family Guy.

10. Do we know each other outside of LJ?

That we do. :-)

11. What is your favorite sport?
I'm quite into tennis thanks to Wimbledon at the moment, but I really enjoy watching Gymnastics and Ice Skating. As for a sport to perform, swimming is the best.

12. Negative or optimistic attitude?

Usually optimistic.

13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
Sing Disney songs to pass the time.

14. Worst thing to ever happen to you?
Mum died.

15. Tell me one weird fact about you:

I have a horizontal wisdom tooth.

16. Do you have any pets?
I have a cat who I'm allergic to. Stupid cat.

17. Do you know how to do the macerana?
Hell yes!

18. What time is it where you are now?

19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary?

20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?

Get rid of my eczema.

21. Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Oh come on, you know for a fact you'd be my conscience. :-P

22. What color eyes do you have?
Dark brown.

23. Ever been arrested?

24. Bottle or Draft?
Of beer? Neither. Yuck. Cocktails all the way!

25. If you won £10,000 pounds today, what would you do with it?
Buy my dad something nice, spoil my family, spoil myself.

26. What kind of bubble gum do you prefer to chew?
Hubba Bubba!

27. What's your favorite bar to hang at?

I like the pub. The Horse and Jockey down the end of my road is pretty nice.

28. Do you believe in ghosts?
On the fence. Think I'd have to see it to believe it.

29. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
T'internet, read, swim, see friends and family.

30. Do you swear a lot?

Fuck yes.

31. Biggest pet peeve?


32. In one word, how would you describe yourself?

33. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
Sure, why not?

current mood: bored

Stolen from ninamazing

Name your 10 absolutely favourite couples* (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

(I assume this is just for TV, you get films involved and it all goes crazy 'n' shit!)

... in no particular order, and by no means definitive (!!):

01. Lorelai/Luke (Gilmore Girls)
02. Barney/Robin (How I Met Your Mother)
03. Mal/Inara (Firefly) Because Mal/River is wrong and everyone normal knows it!
04. Jim/Pam (The Office)
05. Booth/Brennan (Bones)
06. Willow/Oz (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) Yes, I know it was all about the Tara love, but Oz was just frakkin' awesome.
07. Jackie/Hyde (That 70s Show)
08. Rogue/Gambit (X-Men) It's been adapted into TV shows, so it counts...
09. Libby/Dan (Neighbours) ...what? I think they're cute!
10. Caroline/Mac (Green Wing)
11. Art/Kat (Sequential Art) Ahahahaha! I threw a webcomic in there!!

Whoops, completely forgot Logan/Veronica. Well, they're in there too. <3

South Park is ridiculous.
Also, my dad is cool. He buys me nummy food from Sainsbury's and awesome stuff like that. Woop woop! ^_^

current mood: blah

Generally, the little stuff doesn't bother me.
But when loads and loads of small things - tiny, really - keep happening and building one on top of another, it makes me want to kick people in the shins. Hard.

It's nothing important, I'm just venting.

current mood: geeky

What's this? Thorpe Park tomorrow? Yes please.
I have much more work to do, yet I find Thorpe Park tomorrow and Reading on Thursday (to see Wolverine) two very good plans that lack any flaws. To be fair, I have written a good few hundred words of my Advanced Fictional Writing draft today, so I could be doing worse. 'Tis just a case of getting on with my other guffing modules and not completely failing the year.

Can't wait until the 4th June, then I will have fuck all to do until I return to Birmingham to start on Operation: Organise Life. I'll have a good month or so of pissing about, though, so I'll be feeling gooooood by June. Yes, that's right. Damn gooooood.

Meanwhile, those of you who actually read this can look forward to more rambling/stress/moaning/sobbing about my work that I'll be doing until it's all done and dusted. I'm sure you'll have much fun.

..I think the hour-long walk (there and back) was totally worth that shower. After the utter craptasticness of our shower here, I forget how nice it is to have a proper one. I feel kleeeeeen! XD

Jai hoooooo!

current mood: lethargic
current song: Virtual Insanity - Jamiroquai

No, I'm not listening to the Pussycat Dolls... what?

Aaaaaagh, I hate my house. Because the bath is blocked, I have to walk for half an hour to my mate's house to use their shower, and right now I just can't be bothered to move. Will go later because I fo sho want to have a shower, but meh, pain!

I'm listening to Jamiroquai now, so you can stop judging. :-P

current mood: calm

So, now all that crap is over with... on with more work. Woop woop.

But even with the looming 13,000 (or thereabouts) words I still have to write, I am feeling not too worried. I've got around a month to do it all, and I got some books out from the library earlier to start researching into tomorrow. Of course, this will be after mine and Emma's little swim little swim and haircut in the morning/early afternoon.

Interlude - right this second my housemate is popping up from behind my laptop shouting 'KILL IT!' (I just sneezed) and pressing her boobs up against my poor, defenseless mac. I'm surrounded by insane people.

Anyway. Yes, where was I? Haircut. Right. I do like getting my hair cut and looking all pretty, so that'll be nice. And then I'll be all rejuvenated and pretty for work/reading in the afternoon. 'Tis a plan of action.
So, as for non-work aspects of my life, I've spent most of the day with Emma, running all around the shop buying food and going to pick up South Park DVDs from the Post Office. We made ciabatta pizza and watched some DVDs before settling down for the epically cheerful Philedelphia, accompanied with sweets and crisps. Oh, and doughnuts. We're a damn healthy bunch.
I'm now enjoying some Gilmore Girls, and Emma's lying next to me while I stroke her hair... I do love our quasi-lesbian relationship.

All in all, things are pretty good.
