life begins - me

**flying rugby tackle**

**runs madly at Flist and grabs you all in a huge bear hug**

Thank you all so much for the birhtday wishes - you guys made my day! If I've missed anyone in my personal thank yous I am so sorry!

I had... well, to be honest, I had a kinda crappy day yesterday, but that was more to do with being freezing cold than anything else! Phone call from sister: "Geez it's freezing in the kitchen - there's frost on the inside of the window!" her: "How come?", me: "My thermostat, remember I told you?", her: "Oh. You've no heat at all then?", me "Just in the living room.", her "Oh. You should have said something." *ominious cracking sound of ice giving way as my head hits the kitchen table*...

...anyways...

Thank you all again!

Caffeine makes all things better. I swear, that first cup of coffee cured whatever was causing my random temporary inability to focus. All better now!

Meant to say - thank you so much to emeraldswan for my gorgeous new icon! I love it to pieces!

Wow. UK Documentary are running five days of Michael Palin's documentaries back to back. Today it's the turn of Pole To Pole, which I'd not seen before. Anyway - the episode right now has him in Leningrad. Yes, Leningrad, not St Petersburg, and he's just said the population had just voted to change the name back to St Petersburg. Which means he was there at the exact same time I was.

It is an incredible city, and watching him on the Battleship Aurora and at the Winter Palace - and all the other familiar places - just makes me wonder, what do those places look like now?

ETA Upadate on INAP. Goddess love the folks who are developing this code! The admin at the support forum has idenitifed the problem, hopefully it's fixable but it may rely on PHPMyAdmin skills which are sorely lacking in me...

Fic: Destiny - Prologue

Title: Destiny (Redux)
Author: Shona
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be!
Summary: Destiny... is it written in stone?
Notes: This is finally the start of my re-write. If you have managed to stumble across the original story you may have an indication of where this will be heading, but it'll be a completley different trip! This prologue is unbeta'd because I wanted to make good on my promise to post it before the end of 2005!
Timeline: Start of season six, *right* at the start of season six - and then? It's all gonna change...
Characters: This is actually a Xander-centric ensemble fic. Does that make sense? *g*
