So my icons and wallpapers went down really well, I'm more than a little flabbergasted by that and wish I could take all the credit - but I'm sure the Jensen effect had a lot to do with it. :) I'm really behind on everything right now, my neice's birthday was yesterday and I ended up at their house watching my nephew play his Futurama game on his PS2 and generally tolerating my BiL. (Barely tolerating it has to be said, especially when he made yet another crack about not pinning a badge to my shirt because he didn't want anything to go pop. Yes, I'm well-endowed, as they say, but he's still an arse.)

Littlest nephew (just turned one in December) is so keen to be a part of everything that he's *almost* walking on his own. He's standing without support for a little while, he just hasn't quite got the one-foot-after-another thing yet. Eldest nephew is turning into a greedy little sod, he's four - will be five in August - and wanted in on everything, and when neice had opened all her presents he was asking why there weren't any more. I know it's a four year old trait, but from watching sis at the weekend she gives in all the time. He had four pounds to spend on a toy, she let him get the werewolf from the DW episode Tooth & Claw action figure which cost eight quid. She picked up fruit squash but he wanted a Robinson's fruit barley thing instead. She got both. We were picking a birthday cake for neice and he spotted miniature Happy Feet cakes, he got them. He is the master of throwing a tantrum in the middle of a shop, but she just gives in all the time...

*sigh* got sidetracked there, it's not my problem, my therapist would be proud of me. Speaking of, t'was therapy time again yesterday and she thinks that there's been such a significant change in me that it's time to start considering the option that we might want to draw to a close. She wants to take it really slowly because the whole thing came about initially when it became apparent that I really don't deal well with loss, or endings, but she's so impressed with how I've handled Dram's death. I am grieving, part of always will, but I'm not pushing it away as I have in the past, and my new attempt to not always focus on the negative (which I really hope has come through on this journal since the start of the year because it has been a determined effort on my part) is making her think there's not a whole lot more I can get out of the sessions. It won't be immediate, it'll be an easing into the process, but maybe by the summer I can stand back and say I'm not so screwed up anymore.

Basically what I was meaning to say is that I'm a li'l bit behind on everything, need to send smhwpf's beta back, need to finish my slayerversathon fic, need to get my Sam icons started properly, need to seriously sort out the crap on my computers so that I have the memory and processing power to make an attempt at the vid that's bothering my brain, and I need to get my crossover fic planned out.

And I need to talk to a lawyer about the land my neighbour wants to buy, he left me a message last night while I was out. He's spoken to his lawyer already.

It's like being a grown up all of a sudden.

Oh, and to the SL here who's bitching at me about a problem with an ejournal, typing your email in block caps is going to encourage me to work on it with the highest priority. Oh, no, wait, it won't. It'll encourage me to put it right at the bottom of my long list of things to be done. Bitch.

Loads of positive. Good stuff - Proud of ya, doll! What's being a grown up like? Is it scary?

Oh, by the way, having fun with Imageready...

I hate you I hate you I hate you for turning me into a distracted fanboy - its all your fault and has nothing at all whatsoever to do with me being a big procrastinatey poohead.

Next thing you know, I'll be making SPN icons...

Bugger. Now I have "ideas".

It's very scary...

Kinda like that icon! Very cool though!

Well, if you're looking for sites for SPN pics, you could try here: http://www.supernatural.tv/ or here: http://www.winchesterfan.com/

*feeds the addiction*

Like you're not already the biggest fandom pusher I know...

But sure, I might, y'know, take a look... Casually, on the, er, off-chance...

But first, showering and facial scrapage, cos quite frankly, yuck. And also Ew.

Hee! Or stipedwall.com - you have to register there but it takes about three seconds to do that. Or spncaps...

Dumbass. *points and laughs*

*smacks you round the back of the head*

*tells engelsteorra to punch you as well*


Or, you could always ask me and I could sort through the squillion pictures I've got and zip em up for you...

(Oh, by the way? My bid to convert the world to SPN fandom is succeeding - you, and now Claire. She's a Dean girl, which I must admit surprised me a little, I would have said she would have been a Sammy girl personally...)

Dean's the blonde one, right? Claire digs the blondes, although I've always maintained blondes shouldn't be allowed to interbreed - it just wouldn't be good for anyone.

*sits back and grins smugly at superior dominant dark-hair monkey genes*

I done nuvver nifty iconning.

Football is rubbish.

I am officially back on the beer.

I better go away now before the crack team of zombie bunnies gets me.

This is Dean. Points at icon. You can tell because it's got his name on there. Twice. Not so much with the blonde.


And you were calling yourself a fanboy yesterday...

And, by the way, what colour is my hair again?

I am so glad to hear that you are making such progress in therapy.
