life begins - me

Note to self

Stop being so damn lazy!!!

I've got two sites in the building stage which all it'll take is for me to sit down and design some graphics for and they'll be ready for launching. I have seven fanfics I'm currently writing and another two on the back burner (plus a huge novella type story I'm trying to ignore at the moment). I have a Brogan story to write/update (Brogan is my original fic - I've been writing this character since I was 15 and it's about time I dropped back into her life to see how she's getting on!). I have an icon to update for the whedonosity "pity" competition. I have a computer to fix, I have shopping to do, I have laundry to do, I have a million and one things to do today and what have I been doing? Reading fic. All morning.

There's been some damn good fic in that bunch, but that's not really the point, I need to get to get my act together a little here but I'm not in the mood for making graphics today - my brain hurts too much!

If you're looking for something worthwhile to read (if you haven't already found these of course) then you should check out Every Dog Has His Day by Annaluna - perfect characterisation and a really sweet ending that somehow avoids being too teeth-hurtingly sweet. And of course, liz_marcs has updated Living History. I can't repeat this enough times - this story rocks!

Favorite word? Changes all the time... today it would probably be.... Supercilious - that's a great word.
Least favorite word? Cunt. I hate that word, I just... hate it. I use it so rarely that when I do use it, people who know me know I mean it.
What turns you on? ooo, trying to be a little more than shallow here.. Eyes. I have this thing for soulful eyes, If you can't look me in the eyes then forget it, you 'aint gettin' anywhere....
What turns you off? Liars.
Favorite sound? At the moment, the word "Sha!" - it's my two-year old nephew's attempt at saying Shona. I love hearing it!
Least favorite sound? My dog being sick on the carpet at 3 am. Like this morning.
Favorite curse word? Shite. A word I only hear from Scots or the Irish, but it's so expressive!
What job would you like to have other than your own? Journo - I'd hate to become jaded doing it, but the world of journalism fascinates me. What I want to do - my ideal career - is to be a published writer who does web design on the side.
What job would you never want to explore? Nursery Nurse. My sister's a depute manager at a nursery - I love my nephew and neice, but I'm so not good with kids!
