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!

Is it really treason if you weren’t a member of the nation to begin with?

Resits

Have found a draft timetable for resits.

Mine are Tuesday 16:30 (Langs & Defs) and Wednesday 9:30 (Comp Comms). So Gathering travel should be relatively unhindered. :) Hopefully. If it doesn’t change.

fecking resits.

they’re hell on organisation. I won’t know until maybe mid-August when my resits will be and I still have to organise transport to the Gath. I can’t organise that until I know when they’ll be, because the resits will be sometime between the Thurs before that G and the Thurs after. So how much of the G I can attend is decided by the resits as well. Joy.

Results are under cut for those who care more than me :)

As an aside, I just looked at my MSN list. Two people - just two - were people I didn’t know through Warbird Wing.

I found that vaguely interesting. Chances are the majority of people reading this will have no idea what Warbird is/was - even if they follow the link.

Such is the nature of things that they do eventually change, mutate and move on. I think I started to fall out of Warbird around the time I went to Australia (July 2004) and it was cemented when I went to uni for first year (October 2004).

But still, I have the people I know and the friends I made from my 3 years among the Warbirds - even if we don’t speak as often as we might.

So, over the last week, I’ve spent ~23 hours in Shetland, ~72 hours in Derby, ~10 hours in Aberdeen, ~53 hours on a boat and ~19 hours on trains as well as a smattering of time in Edinburgh. But now I’m back here for the summer :)

Start work again tomorrow with around twice the hours I had during term time, so more money! :D I’ll be doing front counter most likely as well since Martin wants to get me trained up on that (it’s the only area of the store I haven’t been trained in).

@Vicky: I have to say that I’m more likely to be taken up as a ley hero than you my dear… Though I have plans which I need to set in motion…

I have my sword back - it’s been remade and is shiny, but I never had cause to use it at the Moot. Wonder why…

Fucked up this morning though. Slept in (an impressive feat considering the PAs they broadcast) on the boat and missed my train. Had to buy a new fecking ticket which I couldn’t afford. I mean that’s probably going to instigate overdraft charges.

But I saw Doctor Who on Monday morning (I managed to get online and start downloading on Sunday night) so I don’t need to worry about the spoilers that managed to get everywhere. I mean there were spoilers in the Metro I picked up on Monday after watching the ep.

I’m half contemplating going out to the cinema tonight… the only decent thing on is Die Hard 4.0, but it’s something to do. Might wait till Sarah & co return though.

Suppose I could just watch more anime… :D

Still have another 3 days of travelling ahead of me though.

Tomorrow morning, I head up to Aberdeen to get the ferry to Shetland overnight. Tuesday, I’ll be hanging around Shetland for about 12 hours before I get the ferry back and then Wednesday, I’m coming back down to Edinburgh again. I fully expect to get a phone call over the next few days wanting to know why I’m not at work…

But still, I enjoyed myself in a way at the Moot. It wasn’t exciting and it was boring most of the time, but there were the odd moments where things happened and I had fun. And, despite popular belief, I did not spend half the event OOC to avoid getting slotted. I went down to the Moot again in search of more entertaining events.

Xanthe survived and made some new acquaintances, though not as many as Mestari¬† - I really need to play a character that gets involved in things like the guilds… Keitro wasn’t interested and Xanthe won’t acknowledge anyone as better than him.

I also played around with glamours :D Changing costume halfway through the day for teh win!

Have caught up on LJ and comics now. Only almost a weeks worth of LJ (180-ish posts) and 3 days of comics. Hopefully Doctor Who will finish downloading soon…

Left Edinburgh, all well and good.

Got to Aberdeen.  Bag seemed to be struggling a bit.

Got to the ferry. Bag broken, buckled and torn. Some of contents (Capri-suns) ripped, others wet/dirty (boxers)

Got to Shetland, went to shops. Bought new bag. And mead. And fudge! :D

New bag cost £60. :( Mum paid for half! :)
