life begins - me


So just got a chap on the door (meaning someone knocked, not that some landed gentry was nailed onto it...okay, my brain's in an odd place already and I'm only just awake - this is going to be a fun day!) Anyway -' twas the postman with a parcel for me. I've bought two things from ebay this week - a Mara Jade action figure for me (I know, I'm a geek - I've accepted this now!) and a Hallowe'en costume for my three year old nephew. I think I've corrupted him - he was determined to go as Darth Vader. The MJ figure I bought on... Wednesday I think, and the Darth Vader costume yesterday at 3pm. Guess what the parcel was?

So Nephew is going to be over the moon I think - this is a very cool looking costume - and I guess that means I have to go do the family thing today. Joy.

smhwpf? Y'know how I said I'd have something for you by this weekend? Um... not so much. Sorry! It got bigger than it was meant to so I'm going to do some serious editing myself first.

emeraldswan - I'm so sorry I haven't got SKoH back to you yet - today. I promise.

_inthedarkness peeps? You guys around this weekend to get these two scenes going/finished?

Right, I'm away to go check Nephew's costume and wonder how much the adult sizes would be....

life begins - me

Kinda drunk

that third Duvel after three Budvar's was probably not a good idea. Neither's posting this, but what the hell! I'm living dangerously.

Gave Nephew his Darth Vader outfit this morning - wanna see the cutest thing in the world? Dress up a three year old in a Darth Vader costume ("It's very scary!") help him hunt through his bedroom for his own lightsaber and see him get so excited to show his daddy his costume. I love being an Auntie!!

Nephew looks amazing all dressed up like that - yes, I'm a geek, and yes I'm a very proud Auntie, but dammit he's the cutest thing ever! Next to his sister of course - although I've not seen her in her witch's costume yet...

I have myself a  Hallowe'en outfit. Kinda. Catwoman. Only thing is I think I need to lose about two stones in fifteen days - think Atkins might help? (*joking* - or am I?)  Thing is, I have no real plans for Hallowe'en itself, working that day, so do I wear the Catwoman outfit to work? In the library? Leather trousers in a university library.... yeah, that might not be the best plan...

Wanna hear another bad idea? Y'remember how I said I was going to stop signing up for insane challenges and ideas? Actually now I come to think of it maybe I didn't post that - if I didn't, I meant to! Anyways... I just requested a claim from fanfic100 - since this comm started to pop up all over my flist I swore I would not claim Xander on this. So I didn't. I claimed Mara.

Haven't heard back yet - and sorry claudia6913, I fully respect the stand you're taking here and applaud it - but if I get it I'll be writing 100 Mara Jade themed fics/ficlets/drabbles. Wow. More than I ever wrote when I played in the SW fanfom sandbox. I'm scared. *g*

Need to get some writing done this weekend. I'm kinda drifting right now - going through the motions of writing without actually having anything to show for it. I really need to do something about that. I need to write.


I just had an epiphany which threatened to sober me up. Maybe that's why I'm so down lately. I haven't actually written anything concrete since Off Course part one. (I will post part two - I promise!) and even that was hanging about on my hard drive for a while. I think maybe I really am a creative type. I need to create something - write something, create some graphics, do something! Gah! I feel kinda... frustrated I guess is the word. Instead of writing or creating graphics, I'm updating this journal and drinking European beer...

Okay - I'm going to go, sleep for a while( if I can), sober up (if possible), and then come back fighting and writing. Hey! Maybe I can finally say to my counsellor (when I'm ever given an appointment that is) that writing fanfic can cure depression. Maybe I should patent that....

(And right now I'm finding Zoolander really funny. Guess I'm drunker than I thought...)

ETA Any Willow/Xander writers out there? Go sign up to the Old Friends With Indescretions fic challenge! (try typing that in one go after copious amounts of beer - I dare you!) You have hours left to sign up - this is a pairing that deserves more writers! I know I have a lot of Willow fans on my flist - go on! Y'know you want to do this!
