life begins - me

(no subject)

Never rains but it pours...

So after just spending a scary amount of money all in one go at the opticians, guess what? I'm going to be spending at least that much again at the dentists... I don't have *bad* teeth, they're all straight (and have been all my life) but when I was a teenager one of my little rebellions was not taking care of my teeth so I have a lot of fillings (and one crown). Two fillings came out last year but they weren't causing pain or discomfort and I never bothered getting them fixed.

Still not causing me pain, but another filling came out this morning. Between my two front teeth. I now have a gap between those teeth wider than Madonna's...

Joy.

I *really* hate the dentists! (In fact it's been so long since I've been that I doubt I'm still on their books any more which means I'll have to re-register and hope they're still taking on NHS patients!)

I kinda haven't done anything I was planning to do last night - I closed voting on ZS but don't have banners done, I ddin't do the beta work for smhwpf I was planning to do, I didn't finish the post I started yesterday on _dontcomehome_, I didn't add anything to the ongoing post on _inthedarkness, I didn't get the site I'm building for a mate finished despite him sending me all the details I asked him for, I didn't do any organising for the Secret Santa at work that suddenly I'm organising again...

Lethargic is probably the word for what I was last night. Cold and grumpy are the words for today I think.

So yeah, I can't get an appointment. And the woman on the phone was a bitch about it. Kinda pushed me over the edge a little so I'm not going to be worth much for the rest of today.

second edit God! Well seeing it's pantomime season... "Sites are down again..." "Oh no they're not!"

Edit again... Go on, chorus along with me. "Oh Yes They Are!" - no clue what's up, working on it.

primeval //gonna die - me

I am lameness personified. Either that or I'm getting old. It's not even 9pm yet and I'm sitting in my PJs thinking seriously about making a cup of tea (lemon and ginger - throat's a little raspy) and heading to bed.

*sigh*

Still no joy with getting a dentist appointment, the bitca on the phone first thing actually put me off speaking to people all day so I didn't really push for an appointment. Will be doing lots of ringing around tomorrow because I've discovered this is making me lisp a little and when I answer internal calls with "Hello, Serials department, Shona speaking." you can imagine how irritating that is getting...

Oh! Before I forget - smhwpf - I will have your beta back to you first thing in the morning - I was working on it at tea break and had it saved to my work computer and then neglected to email it to myself to finish at home. Sorry!

Did some RPGing today again, finally got one of the scenes in _inthedarkness finished off and we now (I think?) have a definite goal in mind for the group. Plus, I'm working on a two-person RPG which I'm currently writing both parts for (it's schizophrenically fun!) only I think those guys kinda took over. Somehow or other I've managed to get them to Roswell in July 1947. Yeah... _dontcomehome_  I really don't know where that one came from!

Still no banners for ZS - I think I'll take my laptop into work tomorrow and try to get some template ones done over lunch!

And before this turns into another scary to-do list, I'm going to go make that tea...

Random fic posting...

So last year some of us on the BBBFic list took part in a 'Secret Santa' ficathon. Since one of the people never turned in their fic no one's ever actually claimed authorship of their story. I know who didn't turn in their fic, I've read the part of it that was written (and it was very good!) but the person concerned isn't planning to finish it.

So, since I've had a fic languishing without my name on it for nearly a year now... I'm sharing it. Yes, mine is the two-parter (I have managed to write single part stories, honest!) whose second part was turned in late... It's been a while since I've read this myself and I may want to cringe rather than share it, but what the hell!

Matthew, by the way, is the guy at my work who I refer to as 'Monkey'. It was pure fluke that I ended up writing for someone who I not only knew in real life, but kept having to hide my notebooks from in case he read part of this!
