Chapter 4

I spent the day with James Marsters

Yes, you heard that right! Yesterday, [info]kitty_poker1 and I attended James's Mastersclass. It was a rather pricey event, but worth every single penny. It was just what I needed to take my mind off things at home. And as I suspected, James and Gareth David-Lloyd were fabulous together.

Cut for a full account and photos )

Mar. 29th, 2009

Last night I dreamed that James Marsters was announced as a guest at The Hub 3. Am hoping this is a premonition, but must bear in mind I also dreamed I landed on Mars in a miniture caravan.

Open Uni assignment has given me a headache. I have serious doubts about my ability to complete this course.

Dear Indy, I will never pull a hamburger out of my handbag, so please stop looking at me like my mechanical pencil is responsible for crushing your soul.

I hope this wasn’t a bad omen trying to tell me I’m going to fail my OU course, but while I was working on my assignment yesterday, sat at a table in my works staffroom, the ceiling came down on me. I got some odd looks when several people rushed to help me and I held my book aloft and declared, ‘My Frankenstein is all soggy!’

So what if I got hit on the head and had bits of ceiling in my bra, my essay notes all survived – and my Buffy mug.


In other news, had a very dodgy tummy today. In Sainsburys I bought potatoes, chicken, a carrot, and diarrhea tablets. As the check-out girl scanned the box of tablets last I pointed at them and said, 'Pudding.'

It's really no wonder people think I'm odd.

Right, back to my essay. Deadline is next week and I have 500 words I need to cut. Also, my Zero 1 album arrived!! HAL!!!!

Spander -- Live at Heathrow 30th Oct - 1st Nov



[info]kitty_poker1 and I have Gold tickets and we're very excited. I can't believe that after all this time, I'm actually going to see Nicky. I don't know why, but I didn't think it would ever happen. And not only do I get to see him, I get to speak to him and have my photo taken with him, and Kitty also gets the added bonus of scraping me off the floor afterwards.

October is going to be one hell of a month. Exam, The Hub 3 and now this. I may either explode or implode or a strange mixture of the two.

It's Confusing Being Us

Grandad and I felt like having a Doug McClure phase so I jumped on Amazon and ordered a few cheap classics, plus another copy of Anaconda because our copy has spontaneously fecked up. So, while I was thinking about crappy films that I love anyway, I thought it was high time I experienced the joy of Shark Attack 3.


Me: What do you think, Grandad? They've got a box set of all three Shark Attack films for £3.98.

Grandad: What's it called?

Me: Shark Attack.

Grandad: Pardon?

Me: Shark Attack.

Grandad: What?

Me: Shark Attack!!

Grandad (appearing puzzled): What's it about?

Me: ... What do you think it's about?

Grandad: I don't know, do I? A shark and a cat?

Me: SHARK ATTACK, NOT A SHARK AND A ... Oh never mind.

Hal Sparks: I'm Fangirling You, BB

All day I've been saying that I'm gonna post but must answer this email and that email first, and look at this post and oh might as well look at that one, too, and check out my Twitter and update the memories at [info]we_love_dick. Now I'm finally ready and I can't remember what I was actually going to post about. Hmmm.

So instead here's some Hal Sparks info that I forgot to post last week, plus stuff I found out today. It's all very well being a week behind everyone else, but when you're a week behind yourself you know you've got trouble ;o)

HAL SPARKS IS ON TWITTER!!!! I probably got way too excited about this, but I have such a huge crush. I'm so following him and I shall occasionally reply to his tweets which he might even read, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

While I'm on the subject of Hal, yes I have been stalking him around the internet. I've found some stand-up clips that prove how funny he is in RL and I've also found some of his music. That boy can REALLY hit those notes.

HAVE A LISTEN

I love Helsinki so much I've ordered the album from a seller on Amazon.com who seems to be the band's drummer.

For those who are wondering WTF? Hal is Michael Novotny from Queer as Folk (US version) and I luffs him. He's definitely next on my list of people I must one day meet. I wonder if he ever does any conventions over here. Kitty, we may have to go on another adventure.

Torchwood: A Picspam for Beginners

It's been a while, but I'm finally in the mood for picspamming. As I've just recently come back from The Hub 2, I'm all about Torchwood so I would like to celebrate season one with you all and perhaps introduce a few more of my flisties to this fantastic show.

All screencaps are by me and are free for anyone to take, enjoy, customise and molest.

Warning: Definitely contains spoilers and may also contain stuff that didn't actually happen.

Let the hotness begin )



To my flist. I'm been really ill for the past few days so will catch up on emails, posts and comments tomorrow.

The Hub 2: Photoshoot Pics

Under the cut is me with Eve, Gareth and Matt Rippy. I haven't included the one with Kai because I looked like a shape-shifting alien that fails at life.

Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! And stuff. )

The Hub 2: Belly-Licking Awesomesauce

I'm back from The Hub 2. I'm tired, my throat hurts, my voice is nearly gone and I'm almost totally broke. But I had the most awesome time. Everything was right and nothing was wrong. It was everything I dreamed it would be. I'd like to do a coherent report, but my eyes are rolling up into my head so I'll apologise now for the typos and randomness.

Cut for random excitement )

Beta'd by the fantabulastic [info]kitty_poker1. Thank you, hon!

Also mucho thanks to my wonderful partner in fic-related crime, [info]amejisuto, for all her help, and to my darling [info]literati for giving me a big nudge to write this sequel and for re-designing the community with a new look complete with banner and icons and for re-reading the original fic TWICE and providing me with a page full of notes and pointers to keep me on track because I couldn't remember most of what Ame and I had written.

37 Days

I haven't been online much this last week due to things, stuff and widgets, so sorry for the lack of me. I'm sure it's been difficult for you all.

I've been smoke free for 37 days. On day 34, I didn't think about smoking at all. Today it's all I can think about. I've been knitting through the pain and I have a new friend to introduce to you all: Little Ted!



He was tricky becuase I had to use 3mm needles and keep the tension deliberately tight. Sewing his parts together (and doesn't that sound remarkably dodgy?) was nail-biting stuff because the yarn had to be pulled so tight to keep him together when his arms and legs move.

Today I've been planning my essay on the narrative voices and dialogue used by Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice. It's not as easy as it probably sounds but, god-damn, motherfucker, I'm determined.

In fandomy news, I've been re-watching QAF (US) and if I wasn't smitten before I'm certainly all of a flutter now. I feel a picspam coming on good and proper.

The first part of Grief Counseling is now just days away from being posted. I'm excited about it and also looking forward to getting it all done and dusted so I can move on to the next project. I have started my Xangel in Spaaaaaaaaaace and poor Angel is already in a predicament and will unfortunately have to stay that way until I can get GC off my mind.

Now back to my essay and then I shall catch up with my 183 emails ~boggles~

No Smoking, More Knitting

I've been smoke free for 31 days and I'm absolutely gagging for a cigarette. Before I gave up completely, I'd cut down to only a few fags very late at night, but now I'm craving ALL DAY. This is not a good sign.

I started my Open University course this weekend and we've kicked off with a study of the Realist Novel. Pride and Prejudice. Great Expectations. Fathers and Sons. And Frankenstein as an example of the Anti-realist novel. I'm dreading having to critique and discuss Fathers and Sons because my honest opinion is that it's a pile of shit. I don't think I'll get a very good mark if I put that in an essay :OD

On the bright side, here is my latest creation. Everyone, meet ...

Piccalo!






He's outgoing, fun, definitely a showbiz kinda guy (I'm thinking the stage), and when I give him to [info]big_balls she will probably rename him Colin.
