Went present shopping yesterday with Sis and the kids. That was actually a lot of fun and I realise that from the number of times I've bitched about my family that the statement sounds false, but really, it was a lot of fun. Seeing their faces when the mall-employed Santa Claus came up to them and gave them chocolate coins? Priceless! And I now have pressies for two of the three of 'em. I have no clue what I'm getting the youngest. He turns one on the 17th of this month, I have his b-day sorted, but Christmas? No clue - any suggestions gratefully received!
Also, my multi-region DVD player was getting a bit screwed up. There's a problem with the SCART socket and it's messing up the colours on screen so that after a little while everything takes on a metallic pink tone. I've checked it out and it's definitely the socket rather than the cable. The other day monkey_matt mentioned that Asda had a DVD player for around seventeen quid (since a decent DVD film is usually about twenty quid that's a helluva bargain!). Problem is that I don't shop in Asda for a couple of reasons - first they overheat the shop so that I feel ill within a minute of walking in the door; and second they're owned by WalMart.

And to clarify the *squee* from Friday - Jared Padalecki had signed up to appear at the Asylum convention next May along with some Smallville people who I've no clue who they are. I booked, after a
And JSTOR and my boss can bite me. It was a combination of the two factors, possibly instigated by the Discworld Auditors, that wiped the grin from my face Friday afternoon and *almost* had me walking out the door. It was as close to quitting immediately as I've come lately.
Did some graphics work yesterday, starting to get the hang of selective colouring now I think. I'm understanding it better and the results are well worth the WTF? moments I think. Hopefully I'll get more done today, I owe banners and layouts to a couple of people and my deadline for the 100days100icons claim is the... 17th or 18th. I posted 20ish last night (cross-posted here at fandomsbitca) and want to get them all done asap now that Photoshop is actually behaving itself. I should probably get to that soon really shouldn't I?
Oh, and Kripke is one sick puppy. But dammit he owns my soul now.
