Ok, so it was Christmas, but the alliteration looked better. And the Solstice songs are better. :D

I got stuffs!

Have a handmade woven silver bracelet, chocolate shots, Neverwhere on DVD, Scrubs season 2, Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Star Wars, Boom Blox: Bash Party (all 3 for the Wii), some money, the mandatory toiletries and a brand spanking new 1.5TB external hard drive. Least that's what I remember without going downstairs. Oh and some chocolates.

And of course there was Christmas dinner with duck, mutton and all the trimmings. And a proper homemade-and-marinated-in-brandy-for-months Christmas pudding with Cornish clotted cream. And we'll have another one tomorrow. :D

I'm on an enforced ST-break from Leaping Stag, given that after a month of it, I was starting to burn out from the stress.

Been playing WoW. Just got my main to level 20 last night. Yes, I know, I suck. But that's in under 30 hours playtime and I've only been on this account 3 weeks.

Umm... think that's about all I got...

Hope you're all having a good holiday.

- y.

So what have I done since my last post?

  • Worked on my dissertation - actually put in solid work-hours!
  • Went out drinking for my birthday. Had a small meal as well with close friends.
  • Read many books, watched much anime, seen lots of films.
  • Bought all my Christmas presents at the Christmas Market
  • Bought many custom dice
  • Come back home for Christmas
  • Had repetitive bouts of chronic back pain. (Have prescription painkillers for it) (Should really go and take some now)
  • Created a talking chatbot somewhat representative of Jamie Gabbay
  • Gone practically vegetarian at many points
  • Listened to A Very Scary Solstice
  • Gotten annoyed at the WGA strike meaning my TV watching habits have gone to pot. Not that I disagree with the strike, but I like my American TV…
  • Done lots of lovely work at McDonald’s - especially with doing 11 and 12 hours shifts…
  • Resisted the urge to buy lots of stuff from Liam’s
  • Started doing Camarilla - or more to the point Changeling
    • Also did the Cam Regionals as an NPC and played ghosts the entire time I was there :D

Also, anyone got a suggestion for a quote to go on my Gamers t-shirt?

Oh yes, and have yourselves a scary little solstice!

By a giggling maniac wielding make-up!

Look!

It’s alright - I got in a pre-emptive strike! I used my current idiom of “Do unto others quickly, before they can do it to you!” and attacked her with make-up first. I do like the rose


though!

It’s a bit hard to tell…

The last couple of weeks have been fun. For those of you who didn’t know, I’ve been being a Freshers Helper. Lots of fun!

It really was as well. The days have blurred into each other; there was free food, drink and sweets; there were many fun people; lots of fun events and lots of cool freshers.

Though I am partially deaf after Live Music on Thursday night - need to go arrange an doc’s appointment for that.

Even so, I’d say this is probably the best start to an academic year I’ve ever had. :D

And they let me into 4th year - the fools!

Starting my game tomorrow - or at least the character gen. Should be lots of fun.

From the new flat that is.

Still moving in - have got most of my stuff here now, but it still needs unpacking.

Have finally caught up on LJ from the last few days.

We even had a big proper dinner last night - with courses and everything!

Right, shower and then more unpacking… Need to go back to [Sarah]’s as well… and Asda…

Should I start by mentioning the girls at work whos’ goals include stealing my hair (because it’s longer, prettier and generally better than theirs) and stealing my (sexy) top hat, my recent trip to a different store or my increasing collection of burns?

Or possibly the fact that I’ve (finally) been “trained” on front counter. By which I mean they gave me a float and told me to do front counter for a day. But they had confidence in me. :)

Shall be moving next weekend. Or at least this is the plan. Have taken Friday, Saturday and Sunday off to do “moving”, so should at least get the internet sorted, and that’s all I need really. ;)

Have been watching many animes recently. Including, but not necessarily limited to: History’s Strongest Disciple: Kenichi, Heroic Age, Zombie Loan, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Claymore, Naruto, Bleach, Devil May Cry, Today in Class 5-2, Ojamajo Doremi Naisho…

Have also been reading lots. Have reread Sandman 1-4, and almost all of the New Jedi Order series. Also read Nikolai Dante, Sinister Dexter, Global Frequency, and Order of the Stick: Start of Darkness (all graphic novels). I have a Douglas Coupland book from Jen downstairs to read as well as the 4th and 5th Horus Heresy books. (Oh and I read HP7 as well, but I already mentioned that on here)

Been to see Transformers, Harry Potter and Die Hard. Not seen the Simpsons film yet, but will soon-ish I think. I want to see Day Watch and Stardust over the festival as well.

I need to get gaming again - either GMing that Orpheus game people wanted me to run (which seems unlikely) or actually playing in a game of some sort… I did acquire the “phonebook” recently, so that may distract me enough… Need a LARP fix as well really.

Talking of LARP, me and Christine have bought a new shiny tent. :D

Shit. I need to send in that bloody resits form. Need to remember to do that tomorrow at work somehow - keep forgetting to grab an envelope.

And I’ve kinda strayed away from the work part, haven’t I? Thursday I was at P2 (Princes St, East End) instead of my usual store (Asda Chesser) which was interesting. Made quarter pounders and “Big BBQ”s for most of the day which made it different from normal work. Though the fact that the grill area at P2 is about the same size as the entire kitchen at Asda Chesser amused me as well.

Oh yes and the burns… they look like they’re shaping up to be ugly… They’re all off toasters, so they’re high-temperature dry burns - fun.

Ah well, Ben & Jerry’s will cure all :D

So last night I was walking home from the pub after work, eating a pack of strawberries, and I suddenly had a craving to watch Firefly.

I just can’t figure out why that might be… ;)
