I really am an emo bitch sometimes aren't I? My mini-hiatus kinda lasted long enough to get a decent night's sleep and then pump myself full of caffeine and write a lot. Not as much as I wanted to, still have a huge hurdle to overcome, but at least I have most of the characters I need in place right now. Apart from the zombies. They're just being contrary.

I was on a roll yesterday and then realised I'd been awake for about 23 hours, forced myself to sleep (not easy after four pots of coffee) and now... have lost the groove a little. The radio is insisting on playing crap today (seriously, Cornershop followed by Oasis followed by Jarvis Cocker? What's next, Keane? Oh lookit that...) and my shuffle is being much more random than usual so I'm going from Louis Armstrong to Led Zeppelin to Beth Orton to Radiohead. I'm just being contrary. Hey, maybe I'm one of the zombies I'm avoiding writing...


Right, back to find out what Julian's been up to and finally get him to confront Anne-Marie... After this cup of coffee...

Almost forgot - I've been contemplating changing my LJ name (getting a rename token thingy). I'd like something non-fandom related I think, or at least non-specific fandom. Any suggestions?

Re: Can I show you this, Sho?
I love looking at the roots of language, I even considered focusing on it when I was at Uni in St Andrews (until I was de-matriculated for actively not going to any classes...).

It helps that my mum's name was Jean so I've pretty much known the breakdown of it since I was old enough to know my own name. (Bizarrely enough I wasn't named after her, it was only later that my parents found out the roots of the name!)

Re: Can I show you this, Sho?
In my case it was just interest. I was doing a mathematics degree (University of Western Australia) and taking an extra year to do it which meant I had time for some extra units for fun. I'd done German in high school so I took German in 1st & 2nd year plus units in Philosophy of Science & Philosophy of Education. The German was a bit of a waste of time since, never having gone there, my vocabulary has gradually faded. The philosophy has helped unexpectedly quite often though. Most recently when arguing morals with naol!
The history of language development was interesting but not to the point where I'd have considered specialising. My interest is primarily in science and mathematics.
