life begins - me

Busy like a bee, actually

Yay! The form over on WKA works! *does happy dance*

Now I need to get caught up on everything else I pushed to one side so that I could get it running this weekend...

Sleepy now, but in a positive way - as in, I'm sleepy because I've been busy, rather than from insomnia (although that's still a problem). emeraldswan I will get SKoH 4 back to you today - I really hoped I'd have it done by last night but it wasn't to be.

I also need to do some graphics work - I'm losing my touch with Photoshop right now and want to get back into making something I want to make. Unfortunately I have no idea what that is so... any requests? About the only thing I can't bring myself to do right now is anything Spike related (sorry) - I do (kinda) like the character, depending on the season, but the film graduate in me just remembers how much of a nightmare it was to ChromaKey a bleached blonde so I shy away from trying anything in Photoshop because of that reason. (Seriously, blondes & blue screen really don't mix well at all!)

Plus, I've got the ficlets for _inthedarkness to do today and arrange a time for us to get started with that. rileysaplank, fancy giving me a shout later on about that application we got at the weekend?

And I've still got WaDaDM to polish off this chapter of. (I'm aware that sentence breaks just about every grammatical rule in the english language, but right now I don't care - pretend it's translated from german if it helps!). I'm nervous about this part to be honest, it's OC heavy and my biggest fear is either turning Eilidh into Mary Sue or having her be a carbon copy of a character from another fandom (that last I did catch myself doing before it went too far but it's still a worry).

And somewhere in that I've actually got to do some work and finish checking the library holdings on IngentaConnect (which are all wrong and it's a horrible site anyway - slowest search engine ever!) and start collating March's usage statistics...

Joy.

Oooo - one more icon I couldn't post to ms_graphics last night because voting hadn't closed yet on joss_stills.

life begins - me

Gah! and music meme

Am I just mass transportation or something? Had so much to do tonight so I grabbed a quick bite to eat and sat down to finish off the beta and update WKA (not that there was much to update - go nominate people!) and have a look for graphics for PYGS (seriously Mark? You're going to regret asking me to do this... *g*). The phone goes and it's my sister looking for a lift to the supermarket so she can get to the photobooth so she can send off for her new driving licence (she needs to change the address on it). Not a problem, except it took me two hours because my nephew would not let me leave the house.... So now I'm really behind in my plans (and I think I just pissed off my neighbour by turning up the volume on my computer - but seriously, he's listening to ceilidh music now - better than the military pipes from Sunday but not by much....)

I will have the fic done, I have updated WKA, I have the pictures I want to use for PYGS but it's going to take more close concentration than I have right now so it'll be tomorrow before I get it started.

I also intended to get some work done for _inthedarkness - ficlets and icons for willowmina and rileysaplank but they'll have to wait till tomorrow as well I'm afraid...

And I've just remembered I still haven't uploaded the BBBFic challenge fics yet... Gah!
