I'm tired

 but I refuse to sleep before 10pm, that seems vaguely pathetic.

I have a bit of a day tomorrow, might need some hugs to get through it. And joy of joys, 7 hours of being on a coach. Without wifi. Awesome. I think I'm going to reread The Magicians, since it's sequel should be waiting for me when I get home. Which I won't be allowing myself to read until I'm in Greece, but is still massively exciting. Yay it's finally on it's way! Bit concerned one book still hasn't got here. It was dispatched from somewhere else in the UK last week. I really want it to get here before I go away, I've wanted to read it since Hay Festival.

Today I went to see The Inbetweeners Movie, which I found very funny indeed. I suppose that probably says more about me and my sense of humour than the movie itself, but yeah, I liked the show and I liked the movie, and I dunno why anyone that liked the show wouldn't like the movie, so yeah. There's more nudity I suppose. I'm glad they didn't leave it how series 3 ended though. Aw, boys. Twats, and yet, sweethearts.

Oh and, going to see Jay Brannan again in October! Yay! 

Really in the mood to go on holiday now. Craving sun and salad and cats and house. Last year feels like a long time ago.

 You guys, the last few weeks, well the last few months, in my RL have been some of the most irrationally bad and confusing of my life. Boys are confusing, friends are undependable, I'm spending money insanely. I've been so confused, and angry, and hurt, and lonely. 

I've been reckless, and incredibly self destructive. I don't think I've ever been this self destructive ever before, actively destroying and destroying. Refusing to do things that make me happy, that make me well, and going out of my way to hurt and upset myself. And I think its a very strange method of defence - if I destroy myself, then nothing else can have done it. If I'm hurting, at least if I did it, if I caused the damage, I haven't been vulnerable to other things, other people.

I think I'm going to stop now.

You guys should watch Make It or Break It, because I really need to squee about it. It is about teen gymnasts that want to get to the Olympics. It is full of cliches and drama. It is amazing. It keeps doing this thing to me, where I think, jesus this is predictable, and then bam! Something tugs on my heartstrings so so much. At first, I didn't care about any of the characters, but they are well developed and somehow not anywhere as annoying as you would expect them to be. The way the latest episode ended made me woop out loud. 

If you guys like Glee, then you should totally give this a chance, since it also features stereotypical, predictable scenarios with characters that should be 2d and ridiculous that surprisingly grab you and make you actually give a damn. Only, instead of breaking into song, there is inspirational gymnastics routines set to totally cliche music.

Also, if you like omnishipping or situations where the characters don't have one person they are clearly meant for and where after getting their heart broken people are actually upset for more than one episode, watch this show. Seriously, there are moments that are so cringey and obvious and bad, where I want to shake and slap some of the characters for being utter morons. And god, can it be trite. But then, there are moments when I am like, DUDE, this is suddenly good.  How did this suddenly get so perfect?!

 In the library the other day, I was waiting for my friend, and absent mindedly wrote a brief outline for that vampire story I am absolutely not thinking about. Oops. Need to remember: witches first, warlocks second, then maybe vampires, self. Silly. But I had just come out of a mildly rage inducing lecture on, amongst other things, feminist opinions on some women in the Old Testament, and I was all pissy and needing to rant, but I couldn't because I was in the library and with a friend that was not at all angry, which just made me more angry. So, I directed the energy to feminist vampires. Because that, apparently, is how I roll.


Today, I booked my flights to Montreal for the summer. I am so so excited! :D :D :D

But, the way I spend money is totally messed up, seriously. Some things I value highly, and some things I somehow don't. Or maybe I just estimate stuff oddly? Like, the flights to Montreal are the most money I've ever spent on anything, and that trip is only ten days or so. Whereas the vague figure I thought I would spend on interrailing, a 22 day trip, needs to be seriously be revised upwards, because I basically have no clue how much staying anywhere should cost. Because I have no experience of paying to stay in places really. Which is odd when I type it, a sign of my upbringing I suppose. Like, I really hope to go back to Dinard this summer, and compared to, well to anything else really, it's insanely cheap. I've spent more on single shopping trips than I have budgetted toward a week in Dinard.

Oh god, I need to shop less.

Maybe my brain just doesn't like maths? Because a set of perfectly sensible, or actually necessary, or kinda necessary in a I MUST HAVE IT way (ie, the buying of Flight of the Conchords tickets were non negotiable) expenditures add up to these scary big numbers on my bank statement. And I kinda wish they just... wouldn't.

I have a kinda cut thing, not quite an ulcer, on the inside of my lip. It irritates and pains me, and doesn't like acid. I wish it would go away. My lips are so sensitive at the moment.

Would love some music recs. I have to dress up as a song on Thursday. I'm thinking "Starry Eyed" by Ellie Goulding, because I can just draw stars near my eyes, and people have probably heard of that song and might get it. But would love some new music recs, any style as long as its awesome. Pop and rock should be sassy, anything else should be beautiful. Maybe I'll check out some of the Russian singers Johnny Weir recommends, since I do like most of the stuff he likes that I have heard of...

*
I'm naming a magician for The Demon's Talisman! Just an extra I expect, they'll probably be mentioned once and get killed. But still, how cool is that? Pretty damn cool :)

Somehow chat on this point turned into pitching what should ideally be a webcomic I feel, called "The Improbable Adventures of Scarlett Chemise and Jean DeNim." Who are hot lesbians that fight crime and fashion disasters. Or something.

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 home!

I'm back in the UK, back at home, and back at my computer!

I'm a little sunburnt, but pretty happy - I had a wonderful holiday, expect to write about it more tomorrow.

Tis good to be back!

Holiday!

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!
