sparkles - me

(no subject)

Looking for my fandom ships meme?

Looking for the 70 Questions entries to naol's challenge?

Okay, back to real life... I have two more characters in my head demanding to write their answers to the questions. I may have to submit - they're kinda scary! edit Phew! Someone else has claimed one of the ones I was going to do - what a shame! Although... I might still do it, just to see if I can capture the voice) end edit

Now, I have a question (and a suggestion I guess) for those involved in the challenge/impromptu ficathon/madness that is the 70 questions thing - would you be willing to have them all archived in one place? As in, not just on LJ but on a specific site made for the purpose? (With links back to the LJ entries for feedback?) edit I've created a site. I'll wait to hear back from more people before I give out the address, but in case you were thinking it'd be a lot of work it really won't be. *g*(end edit) (Oh! And bellatemple wants to know if people would be interested in doing a version for Firefly/Serenity as well!)

and... completely different topic, anyone in the UK know of any shops which still have stock of the 'Galactic Heroes' Millennium Falcon? (It's a chunkier version designed for little kids). My nephew is desperate for one and my sister didn't even think it would sell out. Guess what? It's sold out pretty much everywhere! The Forbidden Planet site has it (and it's been ordered) but they didn't indicate whether it was in stock or whether delivery would be made before Christmas so.... help?

Doesn't have to be the UK - so long as I can get it delivered before Christmas. (There is one on EBay which I'm watching but it's point of origin in the USA so...)

I may be a little absent at short notice for a while - I was up at sister's house most of yesterday and she swears it's just Braxton Hicks but her due date is Wednesday and ... Pretty much I'm just waiting for the phone to ring (and why did an old Deacon Blue song suddenly jump into my head there?!)

Serenity Squee!!!


Sorry for those of you who are either not Firefly/Serenity fans or who are not able to go to these but...

There are going to be two more Starfury Serenity conventions! (Imaginatively called Serenity3 and Serenity4 (nice work there Sean Harry! Bet that took all of three seconds to think of!)

And despite the fact I have no money to buy petrol in the morning (seriously, my new credit card hasn't arrived yet and I need petrol, I'm going to have to buy a fiver's worth and hope the card's in the post tomorrow!) I am so going to these conventions!

Still no luck on the Millennium Falcon (thank you so much smhwpf! Please, don't worry about it - you're still a star!) so if anyone has any leads on one...

Oh! ETA Everyone should go buy the Nizlopi single "JCB" so that it hits number one for Christmas. This song is so damned cute!

I'm Luke, I'm five
and my dad's Bruce Lee
He drives me round in his JCB

Doesn't do it justice but this song has made me smile more than anything else this year. It's so lovely.
life begins - me

Doctor Who!

Okay, so my reactions are a little red-wine-dulled right now but OMG there was just a trailer for Doctor Who's Christmas Invasion on BBC2!


Looks *incredibly cool*

Can't wait!

(but Christmas Day? 7pm? Why? Okay, yes I know that it's the UK equivalent of the Superbowl broadcast, but still... why?! I'm not going to be home to tape it (probably) and will instead have a very excitable nephew who I'm turning into a Sci Fi geek and a niece who doesn't yet talk and a new nephew (Insh'Allah) who will either be screaming or sleeping.)
