Hi, internet!

I just got back from spending the weekend in France, and in the days preceding that I had Glee, a picnic, punting and Pimms trip... it is a busy time! pretty knackered right now, but DARREN CRISS ON WEDNESDAY OMG OMG.
Yay :D
Lal asked me these questions:
1. How did you discover fandom?
2. What do you want from S3 of Glee?
3. What fictional character do you most identify with?
4. Can you convince me why ~TDS SHIPPING SPOILER~ is endgame?
5. Where in the world would you like to live, if you live anywhere?

~ This feeling of absolute happiness, serenity, completeness, satisfaction that comes from finishing a (really rather good) book. I can get it from other things too sometimes, but really, it's book feeling. It's perfection. The book I just read is "Dreaming of Amelia" by Jaclyn Moriarty, which is the last in the series of "Feeling Sorry for Celia", "Finding Cassie Crazy" and "Being Bindy Mackenzie". Finding Cassie Crazy is one of my favourite things ever in the world ever ever ever. And this one was pretty damn awesome, though at points it made me rage, and feel sick, and feel heartbroken, as well as thoroughly delight and amuse me.

~ Radio 1's Longest Show Ever With Chris Moyles and Comedy Dave For Comic Relief lasted 52 hours - they started at 6.30am on Wednesday, and didn't stop, didn't sleep, kept broadcasting straight through until 10.30am today, Friday - was amazing, funny, entertaining, compulsive, and raised over £2.4 million pounds for Comic Relief. Today is Red Nose Day, so telethon tonight!

~ That it seems like spring is here. I don't have to wear my coat and scarf everywhere all the time. The tree in our front garden, which spends most of the year kinda purple, is covered in beautiful white blossom. There are daffodils on the lawn.

~ The excellency of the latest episode of Glee, which I expect I will write a separate post on, but first I want to rewatch it because it was really rather awesome and I watched the first time in between blow drying my hair and having breakfast and doing makeup before going into the office on Wednesday because I was not willing to wait until I got home. And I'm glad I didn't, because it put me in such a good mood for the rest of the day.
~ Also, thinking about the very interesting shipping potential in Skins, which is really coming into its own now, as this current series ends. Oh gen 3, you are so much better than gen 2. I love you, Skins. 
~ Making plans. For Easter time, and also, now, I am going to a festival for a weekend in July in France which will be totally fun! 
~ Awesome fic. I saw this on crack_van and I just have to add to it's praise and pass it on, because it's really, really, REALLY good fic. It's The Strange Disappearance of Sally-Anne Perks by Paimpont, and it's very well written Harry Potter gen that takes the name of a character that is sorted in Philosopher's Stone just after Harry and then never heard of again in the series and spins it into a brilliant, beautiful, canon compliant and complimentary story. Seriously, GO READ IT. 
~ And finally, I don't watch Supernatural and don't care much about Misha Collins, but I was browsing Fandom Wank and heard about this rhino puzzle scavenger hunt thing, and I laughed so hard my dad kept asking me what was so funny and THERE WERE NO WORDS that could explain the insanity and bizarreness of Misha trolling his fandom with such careless hilarity.
How is everyone?

A little summary:

~ I spent a week in a house in Dinard, Brittany, France, Europe, Earth with four friends.

~ It was wonderful.

~ We went on two day trips, to St Malo by boat and to Dinan by bus; we had sun and sand and the sea; we played frisbee and mini golf and articulate; we understood and spoke French (to varying degrees); we made cocktails and invented cocktails and drank cocktails; we read books and wrote books and wrote poetry; we saw cute guys and talked about cute guys and wondered why we kept seeing that one weird ginger guy like every single day… It was all just so much fun!

~ I got sunburnt. Then it got a bit better. Then I got a bit more sunburnt. But its this morning I woke up and my shoulders weren’t red, the were a tiny bit brown. So, win.

~ I now officially like soy sauce, brie and coffee. Mmmm.

~ Somewhere between me adjusting my order because I was in France and, I suspect, they adjusting their cooking because we were English, I managed to eat a steak that was slightly more done than I would have preferred, despite, as previously mentioned, being in France. Weird. The scallops were FREAKING AMAZING though. C’etait parfait.

~ Couple of possible TDL converts, lots of ideas for TDL fanfic, plus once again seriously contemplating picking up LFA again. Tempted. Very tempted. But I also...

~ Started writing a new book. I know, I know. Now totally conflicted on how much time and energy to put into Imlie’s Garden and all its trimmings when I have shiny new characters to think about. Damn. And yet, I am so so excited about them, I just want to tell everyone. And dance and sing and laugh and write and write and write.

I expect I’ll post more about all of these things later on. But now, must go shopping, as all the food that is still in the house should have been thrown away and I currently have only fresh milk on which to subsist. Must get chocolate. And maybe some brie…

I'm going in about an hour! 

I spent ages fighting with my luggage yesterday, trying to reduce it under 10kg, and making sure I don't have any liquids over 100ml, and trying to figure out exchange rates. I'm so glad its overcast and might rain a whole lot today - not just because I'm leaving, because I'm not going very far and Brittany basically has the same kinda weather as the UK, but mainly because it means I can wear m jeans and hoodie to the airport without boiling, and therefore do not have to put them in the suitcase. Seriously, I am weirded out by my lack of stuff. I am hardly taking any paper, despite intending to do loads of writing, because its heavy, and I'm only taking two books to read. At least I can buy paper if I need it - I only read French a tiny bit better than I speak it, which is little to none.

But, back to my life, in which I'm excited to be going on holiday! So, mixed times.

I hope everyone is ok, and I'll be back in a week!

I am so completely finished with all my exams. No more qualifying. Done.

Afterward, I went to a cafe and then a BBQ with my RS teacher and RS class, which was really fun; the weather is excellent, warm and sunny, and the food and banter were both good. It was at B's house, which is nice - she has a swimming pool shaped like a coffin, and M brought a portable BBQ and there was so much food, M's dad was cooking and I swear there was like an infinite number of chicken legs. There was a strange moment when three people jumped up and drove away in search of ketchup and didn't come back for about half an hour.

Today... jus' chillin'.

Gonna start packing for going to France on Friday. Whhheeeeeeeee! I can't believe its just two days away! I and four friends are going to Brittany for a week, its my first just-friends-no-parents holiday!!! I should try to remember some French but, meh.

Later today, cocktails. And tomorrow also, pubbage. Good times.

And, I'm going to ease back into fandom things and writing and writing fic, parrticularly for TDL because I have so many ideas and I've just been trying to wait until after my exams. Which is now!
