life begins - me


Just had a revelation that I thought I'd share - since I'm not above sharing as you all know!

I spend too much time looking for the meaning when there isn't one. Much as I hate Freudian analysis and think the guy was pretty much talking out of a hole in his head most of the time, I have to agree. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Too often I read something, or hear a song, or watch something on TV or film and think "There must be some really profound meaning behind this, I have to sit and over-analyse it until I find it." No wonder I'm so bloody down all the time!

I'm a cynic, and yet somewhere along the way I forgot that, all this time spent looking for the meaning, and I forgot to look for the fun.

So I'm going to take the advice of my shiny new icon (innit great?!) and find the fun.

Cake update - it smells fantastic, it's all springy the way a sponge should be and it looks really great. There's just one problem, I don't have any icing, nor can I be bothered splitting eggs into yolks and whites to make any. So it looks as though it won't be given to the neighbours, instead I may have to force myself to eat it with some ice cream.... Like that's going to be a chore....

Fic: What a Difference a Day Makes 5/?

Title: What a Difference a Day Makes - chapter 5
Author: Shona
Rating: I'm going to say 15, just to be on the safe side.
Disclaimer: Don't own them, never will - I'm still just playing in that pretty big sand box ("Don't worry, it's not coming for me yet.")
Notes: I'm so, so, so sorry for the huge gap between this and the previous part. I wrote most of this whilst watching the finale of ER - that's how long it's been sitting on my computer waiting for me to finish it.

Huge thanks to Sam, hopefully the 'chicklet' comment reads better now, I almost want to say it's a pop culture reference but it's not really 'popular' enough to be that! The film I'm referencing is Psycho Beach Party in which Nick Brendon plays a surfer called Starcat, opposite the lead female who is given the name "Chicklet"

Anyway, enough notes - the previous parts can be found here:
