life begins - me


So I've been so caught up in web sites and then suddenly remembering last night that I was supposed to do some graphics work for this week's Freshers' Fair, that I haven't really thought about writing for a while. I woke up this morning to find an email asking in such a sweet way for the next part of Off Course (the Lost crossover) and I was reminded that it's been a month since I posted that first part. The next part is actually almost done, it's just suffering a little by me not having time to watch TV much right now, and with parts of chapters written for other stories as well I'm now wanting to get back to writing. And I don't think I've got too much to do at work today...

Plus, while I had Photoshop open anyway... I made an icon last night. I followed a tutorial by inxsomniax and although I normally adapt tutorials after I've gotten the basics, I liked this one so much I decided to post it anyway. Although the icon is all mine, and it's a completely different cap (and character) from the one in the tutorial, praise must go to inxsomniax for the inspiration!

(oh, and how bad is it that I'm actually thinking how the new sized Guardian is going to affect the newspaper display in the library - the broadsheets all seem to be going down to tabloid size and the poles we have to put the papers out on are all broadsheet sized. It's going to look like a joke soon. And the *really* silly thing? I don't even deal with the newspapers any more...)
life begins - me

My house is apparently the Forbidden Forest

You know the bit in the second Harry Potter book with all the spiders? My house.

Just as well they're not poisonous is all I can say.

Going to a convention this weekend, or at least that's the plan. Couple of problems with that - one, no money, at all. Two, no one to look after my dog while I'm away. Hopefully I'll get things sorted tomorrow but right now it's not looking good.

Oh, and I can't get motivated to actually do anything about the graphic I'm supposed to have for Freshers' Fair at work for tomorrow. I'll end up doing it at the last minute same as I do everything else.

How the hell are all these bloody spiders getting into my house?! And where are the webs? I have this horrid feeling I'm going to open an unused cupboard at some point and find a whole colony...

And yeah, normally when I'm this random I switch everything off and go read for a while, right now though I'm waiting for Carnivale to start 'cause I told a girl at work I'd tape it for her....
