 So the new LJ changes suck and are horrendous. I've been crossposting to LJ from my Dreamwidth of the same name for a while now, so I don't think I'm going to stop doing that, but if anyone on my LJ flist is thinking of coming over to Dreamwidth do friend me on there :) Or if you need an invite code I have a few kicking around that anyone is welcome to.

****

The marmfish meetup happened and was lovely and deserves a post of it's own, but just in case that gets pushed to side a bit I just want to say, well, that.

****

Oh god, it's nearly Christmas, and yesterday was completely wasted preparations wise because I was really tired and also somewhat irritable and grumpy and not in the mood to put up decorations or generally to get out of bed and my family are also starting to not be perfect and ohmigosh how dare they STRESS. But today I am feeling a bit better, calmer and more with it, despite ongoing organisational nightmares. Probably because I literally spent the majority of yesterday asleep. I woke up several times, but spent most of that awake time almost crying because I wanted to sleep. Until I woke up at 23.35 feeling refreshed and ready to go, lol oh dear. At least all the presents I ordered from the internet have all turned up with plenty of wrapping time, THANK GOD and the better than expected postal system. 

****

My mind seems conflicted about whether today is a doing all the things day, or a writing all the words day. So... if the presents end up wrapped in fic, well, that'll be why.

 Because I'm still procrastinating, clearly.

MEMES!

Reply with "and while we're at it, SANDIES ISN'T A NUDE BEACH EITHER" and I'll give you four fandoms.
Write about your favourite character from each fandom.

Merlin, The Social Network, The Demon's Lexicon and Doctor Who )

 

Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ (or just add a reply back to me). Other people (including me) can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

 Marmfish ice skating meetup was a week ago and it was marvellous.

I had a wonderful time with some very lovely people )

 The snow is really bloody annoying now. The only good thing remaining about this weather is that there is a massive icicle hanging outside my bedroom window. That's pretty awesome.

Um, Americans? My aunt sent me an Amazon gift card that I redeemed before I realised that they don't let you convert $$$ from the .com store into £££ for the .co.uk site. I can't pass it on directly because I've already redeemed it, and I'm not sure whether I can use one gift card to buy another one. But would anyone like to swap $30 worth of stuff from Amazon.com for a £20 voucher for the UK site? That would really help me out.

****

MARMFISH. I have been slow and disorganised, so I shall try to buy ice skating tickets tonight (read: tomorrow, probably). Everyone is easy, and didn't have a preference for skating times either :P So I think we should try to all get tickets for 15.00-16.00 at Somerset House first, and if that is sold out, 16.15-17.15 at Somerset House. Yes? Good. 

****

I would really love some fic recs. Preferably for something pretty long and with some plot. Anyone got any suggestions?

 From Canada, to Greece!

I'm sitting in a cafe in Greece now, on the waterfront. I've been drinking this single coffee for an hour now while I use the free wifi. I'd order another, but I don't want to consume too much cafeine. Despite being here, away from it all, I'm watching PMQs from earlier today - playing very slowly over this connection, but playing none the less. On which note, if any one would like to leave idiot proof instructions for how to do something to my IP address so that I could use the iPlayer over here, I'd be so grateful. September is a lovely time for a holiday, but it is the month when everything - Parliament, Merlin, Glee, Mock the Week - starts up again.

***

Speaking of Merlin, I kinda fell out of fandom last year - it was one of the things I lost track of when I hit my downward spiral last year, and at the time I hardly minded, but now I miss it. So, when I can, should I go back and watch the eps I missed from last series, or should I just jump back in with this series and figure it out? I assume nothing major has happened (ie character death, big magic reveal, Arthur and Merlin having magical fireworks sex in front of everyone etc etc). 

***

I hate my college. Right now, I want to go back this October more than I want to take a gap year, sure, but the difference between these options is dwindling in the face of how much I want to freaking know which it is. FFS, just tell me. God. It is now Sept the freaking 15th. If I'm going back this year, it'll be in a couple of bloody weeks. A bit of notice might be polite, no?

***

So, for no particular reason, I think everybody should read the entries for this latest round of the anon fanworks fest thing that is the wonderful goblinmarket_sw. I mean, read everything. But particularly the latest round :P Go Team RarePear!

ETA:  Would anyone like a ticket to see John Barrowman in Oxford on Oct 1st?

This always happens to me.

Moaning about my #middleclassproblems )

God. I just want this all to be sorted. And I haven't even got to clutches and fascinators yet...

The awesome weather has become steady, rubbish rain. Apparently it might become torrential later. Great, thanks.

+++

Today my friend N is going back to Montreal. I'll see her when I go over to visit in August but that seems such a long time away now. We and two Js had lunch together yesterday, and it's just been so so great to see her these few times recently.

After lunch yesterday, had dinner at a small but lovely Gavin and Stacey get together at C's house. Much fun, and far too much Indian food, was had by all.

+++

MARMFISH: There was at some point discussion of some people meeting up in London on Sunday 4th July for sightseeing and good times. Was that just an idea or is it definitely happening? Is there any wiggle room on the date if it is still a "maybe, could be fun" thing? Only, I really wanted to, it sounded awesome - but I may now be going to Wireless festival that day... 

+++

Small amount of angst over G not replying to my request to sleep on her floor. I'd feel slightly rejected if she said no, but even that, and the irritation of having to ask someone else/consider a B&B maybe, would be better than not knowing what I'm doing just a couple of days from now.

 +++

There's going to be another series of Torchwood, with Captain Jack and Gwen, written by RTD, set "internationally" ie probably in the USA, jointly produced by a company called Starz which very much isn't Fox. I'm surprised by how I'm actually kinda optimistic about this, considering everything. Thoughts?

+ The Demon's Covenant is so so good. I cannot stress this enough.

+ I am working my way through reading the entire chat transcript, with vague ~ideas about shipping charts and ficlets. I love this fandom guys.

+ The Eurovision song contest is bizarre, but somehow it has wormed its ridiculous self into my heart.

+ I am sad about David Laws, but yesterday I realised I do not want to fall wailing into Chris Crocker territory, so I am endeavouring to take a step back.

+ I want to to write! SO. Many. Things. This is my general reaction to freedom and sunshine = creativity. Possibly not as useful as actual photosynthesis, but more fun.

+ I need a Ball dress. A simultaneously scary and exciting prospect.

I really haven't been very sociable the last couple of days. A couple, I just stayed in my pjs all day. So much of my future, of my life is on hold. I think about it, what clothes I'll take, what societies I'll join, and some things I have two parallel plans for - how frugal I have to be, what, other than Theology, I'll study, whether I'll look for a job. In my diary, I have two sets of dates for shows penciled in, depending on what city I'll be in at that month.

It was nice today to meet up with my friend C - I haven't seen her since our school leaving Ball, over a month ago now, and we wailed about such things together. We could go to Cambridge together, or we could be separated by, I dunno, 100 miles I guess, maybe more. At least with some of my friends, I know they'll be far away from me. We try not to talk about what we'd do there if we both get in but its tricky, things slip out and then I feel weird. She'll get in easy, and so will a couple of my other friends, and then there's me and ok a couple of other people for whom its really uncertain. Its killing to know that everyone else - the university, ucas, our school - already know.

But yes. It was lovely, casual, normal and relaxing to meet her and trail around some shops, like we've done a hundred times before. I haven't really shopped, except a pilmgrimage to H&M last weekend when I was in London, since before exams, and maybe I'm a complete girl that's been ruined by a consumerist society, but it is nice to shop. Really, to find something that looks really nice and you can actually afford and you can think of several ways you could wear it. It doesn't always help if I'm depressed or miserable, but as a way to spend an afternoon, generally, highly recommended. Aaah. I'm also highly considering blowing more money than I would spend in a shop on a couple of T-shirts of tinternet and the shipping costs. I just want them, ok? I'm going to be living in jeans and T-shirts, so clearly I will need T-shirts, and I think I can justify an extra £20 if they make me smile when I have nothing else in my approaching life of poverty. That's my list; a laptop, chocolate and some nice T-shirts. That's all I need to live on.

And tomorrow, I get to see some fishies! I'll have to actually get out of bed at a normal time to get to London, but I'm sure it will be excellent fun, and I hope the weather forecast holds.

But, I don't know. My life is about to take a big change, whatever happens. I guess its kinda like being on a rollercoster that pauses at the top of a huge drop. We've been climbing this for years and years, and our exams were months ago, and we can see the edge before the fall and the twists and turns that everyone has said is really exciting and fun, but honestly just look pretty scary here. And I'm stuck here, paused, for another 2 and a half days. It's agonising.

I've picked my laptop though. I'm still checking a couple more websites to see whether I can get it the same but cheaper anywhere, but I'm pretty happy with the price and model I''ve found already, so I think I'll order it soon. I'd like to get it before September preferably, because I want to do some serious writing in September.

I need to look up student bank accounts. God, can I please just be a student already? I clearly think I am.

I suspect in hindsight, this will turn out to be one of the stranger times in my life.

I was intending to make a general post about my life, but there has been so much SRB stuff recently I thought Id just give it a whole post of its own :D

I said this fandom was going to rock! )
