It struck me last night that perhaps going on my unannounced (and actually unplanned) sabbatical immediately after I'd mentioned I was going to be reducing my meds might not have been the cleverest plan in the world.

I'm not dead.


I wasn't too well on Monday and with no net access in the house I didn't get to update or check emails, and then by the time I got into work on Tuesday it became a sort of test to see how long I could go without giving into the addiction the temptation to post. Sorry if I worried any of you! (*huggles to the texters and emailers*) Theoretically I'm not actually posting until I have the prompts completed which should be this weekend (except for one of them and the recipient of that one I met for coffee last night and explained why she won't be getting it with the rest. Damn you wenchpixie for triggering another multi-part story...) so...


And in the immortal words of Esmerelda Weatherwax (Mss.) "I Aten't Dead"

ETA update on the kinda important things: 1, I have just ordered a new broadband package from a new company. They're going through the process of checking details/activating and because of my no credit/debit card status right now it'll be at least a week. But, yay!. 2, I've had to declare SORN on my car (Statutory Off Road Notice) because my road tax runs out at the end of this month, I can't get new tax without having an MOT and it's currently in pieces in the garage while I try to scrape up the 900 (ish) pounds for essential repairs. And once that's done there's no guarrantee it would pass it's MOT anyway so for now I essentially don't have a car. Which means I'll be getting the train into work for the forseeable future (£43 per week for a zonecard. Yikes). 3, I still can't make outgoing phone calls because I can't find the right reference number to re-activate my BT line rental thingy (another casualty of the bank changeover). This will probably have a knock on effect on my broadband and I'm really hoping to have it fixed this weekend. Again, my no credit/debit card method of payment is going to be an issue here. And finally; 4, my eldest nephew started school this week. On Wednesday. I could have sworn it was Thursday he was due to start so I didn't make a big deal of it when I had to drop some things off at their house on Wednesday night. I'm going to have to make it up to him somehow!

second edit so at work we have this white board behind my desk which has info on it about who's on leave or in meetings or whatever. Monkey generally puts up a word of the day on it as well and (based on the comments to this post and the mention of one of unhobbityhobbit's fics) I got him to make today's word "Tentacle".

To which monkey_matt then said: "Tentacle, twice as good as a Pentacle."

*shakes head*

Third edit I just checked my Gmail account and the sponsored link at the top had me doubled over laughing.

"SheWee - go like a man with the portable female urinator!"

WTF? Seriously, WTF?!

*hugs you* glad to hear you are not dead! Though actually trying to go without LJ? Pfft :P

Woot for getting your broadband back! Oh and goody that you are still able to get your emails. Expect one from me in the near future about meeting up when Ruth (unhobbityhobbit) is up

*grins* doing without LJ kinda broke me this week. I was actually doing work at one point - can you believe it?!

Awesome! We definitely need to meet up when Ruth's here! (I was informed last night that she had posted tentacle pr0n recently, I will be reading it very soon. *nods*
Oh Castiel!: *grins*smeckles90 on August 17th, 2007 10:10 am (UTC)
Work, omg! *feels your forehead* yes, you are warm.

Oh yes, you must read it! How the hell she managed to make that hot is beyond me, but she did.

I'm trying to be good and wait till my lunch break to actually read any fic today, but I'm exceptionally bored right now so...

(btw, you inspired another edit on my post)
Oh Castiel!: *grins*smeckles90 on August 17th, 2007 10:27 am (UTC)
oh go on, you know you want to *snorts* tentacles FTW!

You are an evil temptress you know that?
Oh Castiel!: *grins*smeckles90 on August 17th, 2007 10:32 am (UTC)
Oh yes, I'm well aware. I was the one that talked Ruth into writing the tentacle pr0n *g*

Besides, considering you lot talked me into writing a fic about Jensen's incredible fear of sponges, I don't think you have a leg to stand on :P
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: faith//million lies - mewhiskyinmind on August 17th, 2007 10:34 am (UTC)
Who, us?

*feigns innocence*

since I was actually out of the room when the sponge discussion began then I choose to blame all the rest of you. I just came along for the ride... (I'm not being very convincing here am I?)
Oh Castiel!: *grins*smeckles90 on August 17th, 2007 10:38 am (UTC)
(really not, but considering how much I enjoyed writing it, I think I'll let it slip)

I actually got the funniest comment, the girl was all "what the...I don't...um..." HEE! Now that's what I like to see from my readers, complete and utter confusion!

wenchpixie and I were talking about it last night - how funny it is to see people who have absolutely no idea what's going on appreciating the story! It's really well written, but the set up is so out of left field that how can anyone who wasn't either there or had it explained to them by one of who were even hope to get it?!

Oh Castiel!: no-waysmeckles90 on August 17th, 2007 10:47 am (UTC)
I know, I honestly thought I'd get about 6 comments all from you guys, and that would be it. I don't think they're able to fully appreciate all the jokes, but somehow they still find it funny *scratches head* it's a mystery. Perhaps our fandom is even more nuts than we originally thought.
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: text//darkside icon - monkey_mattwhiskyinmind on August 17th, 2007 10:51 am (UTC)

I love the fact that people are responding to it so positively. It does go to show that our fandom is completely insane, but in the good way.

They find it funny because it is genuinly funny - and the in-jokes and the bizarre set up? they don't detract from the humour, they just get people questioning why they don't know what's going on.
