Does anyone have a drop-leaf, gate-leg table they're wanting to get rid of? Or know of any in a second-hand shop in and around York? I'm getting on with the house organising, and I could do with one for the living room.

Day 6: I had the slow and stupid, so I forgot to post and now I don't remember much about the day, so... The sofa! My husband! Oh, I had characters talking in my head, keeping me up. Which is good from a writing perspective, but scarily close to a mental disorder, otherwise.

Day 7: Also slow and stupid, erm... Fringe. Elbow. The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] alasdair1076 for pointing me at io9.com for pointing at a fanfic rec site for pointing me at...

Day 8: [livejournal.com profile] paian! Whose SG1 fic is outstandingly good and has given my story-junkie self such a great hit that I am buzzing - I have been mainlining fic today and as a consequence Words are In My Head and I really shouldn't drive when I have internal commentary set to 'on' because I can't concentrate on the road as well as I should. Also Brett and [livejournal.com profile] greynolds who I saw this evening, having driven, and who are wonderful friends and part of the reason why I live in York and why it's such an incredible city to live in. At this point, I should say that since I was driving, I was on orange juice, and now I am home I have made kiddush - another thing which made me happy today - and have had a only couple of sips of wine. My buzz, you see! Not alcohol! Words are addictive and contagious.

All the way through, it's clear to me that what makes me consistently happy is [livejournal.com profile] ravenlas. His love and support and humour and general shininess and all-round awesome ninjaness.

So, give me my husband, my friends, love and wine and words and an internet connection and I am the happiest of hobbits (short, hairy, I believe in breakfast and second breakfast and elevenses and lunch and high tea and dinner and supper and snacks, big feet - clearly, they are My Tribe). I love you guys. Shabbat Shalom. You rock my tiny little world.
ellenscult: (awesome)
Day 5!

1. Family Guy. All of it. Have you seen Blue Harvest?
2. Sweet Mango Chili Sauce. Makes my mouth all kinds of happy.
3. Gorrammit! My friends! You guys make my life worthwhile. Thanks, guys.
4. SingStar. Talking about SingStar. #3? My friends? Not laughing at me talking about SingStar. Really, I have very gracious friends. Thanks again. :)
5. Cardigan II - shaping the back panel.
6. My latest ChuckFic is going well and people seem to be enjoying it. Hurrah!

Day 4:

1. Just started the armpit shaping on Cardigan II.
2. Theoden (aka Saruman): You have no power here, Gandalf the Grey! Gandalf: I levelled!
3. 4 days with my beloved.

Day 3!

1. Mr Flibble!
2. 1800 words written. Part 2 up and apparently largely making other people happy.
3. Chicken stew and garlic potatoes.

I think that makes for an excellent day. :)

Today I was happy because:

1. I slept for 12 hours. Which means we didn't make it over to Eastercon, but hey, there's tomorrow...
2. [livejournal.com profile] ravenlas brought me an entire thermos of tea in bed.
3. I've made a good restart on that cardigan, knitting the 3 main panels in one because hey, it'd be boring doing it the same way as last time. And I'll definitely have enough wool to finish it!
4. Steve & Lesley came round this evening and we watched Doctor Who and had pizza and nattered lots and it was fantastic.
5. I had wine and pizza and tarte aux pommes (lots of wheat and dairy, but hey, it was good).

I've been tagged by [livejournal.com profile] ru_salki99:

1. Post about something that made you happy today.
2. Repeat for eight days.
3. Tag eight people to do the same.

Well, I'm not tagging people. You want to, you do the meme. Me, I think being happy for things is a great way to live my life. There are always reasons to be happy. So.

1. [livejournal.com profile] ravenlas' vision is now 20/20, apparently. And I spoke to my friend Sue, and to my Mum and Dad and, despite deaths in the family last week, my parents are doing okay.
2. Heading to Bradford for Eastercon in the morning.
3. Chag Sameach! Happy Passover, y'all!
4. Alpro Soya Chocolate Milk? Doesn't suck.

I finally gave in and took that darned Daemon meme. And it came up with a whippet. Cool! All I need now is my flat cap. *heh* If anyone wants to help shape its final form: click here )

No, really! Here, have a meme, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] o_faolain: Jukebox Meme )

Feel free to head on over to his lj and post answers - he's a lot better at this than I am! lol

Okay, when did I last post? Um. Friday? Oops. Well, here be a long and boring update: )

Today - work again, oddly enough. Oh, and I voted. If you have the chance to, go vote today. Even if you think it won't make any difference. It's important.

And [livejournal.com profile] ravenlas has ordered my wedding ring. *happy happy* So shiny! So sparkly! I will never get anything done ever again for being distracted by it. Well, I've got a month.

Oh, and we just need to plan a wedding... *shrug* Anyone have any ideas about running a Call of Cthulhu Murder Mystery?

One of my friends is doing an MSc and really needs people to answey this survey. If you enter contact details at the end, you'll be emailed a copy of the survey results, but your details won't be appended to your survey answers. Those will still be anonymous. Please help out if you can!

Neil Gaiman has a Halloween article in yesterday's NY Times, and it's rather good.

Jim Rigney, aka Robert Jordan, is rather ill. I'm hoping he'll get the Wheel of Time series finished in time, and I hope the treatment works. *fingers crossed* and prayers going his way.

Finally, I scored as Faith on the Buffy test... )

Three links from [livejournal.com profile] jaylake:
A rather amusing test to find out which historical lunatic you are. I may be Charles VI, Mad King of France. Since I'm not sane, though, I'll have another go at it later. *heh*

And here's a link to a book I want to read. The review is even more amusing than the meme. Really, it's a book for [livejournal.com profile] steer. No, really.

Finally, here's the oddest music video I've ever seen. It's a bizarre mix of westerns and sci-fi, with a bit of medieval thrown in. Go watch, wonder, and enjoy the song.

I'm a wee bit annoyed: I've been sucked into the LJ Dungeon thing, and I spent spare minutes yesterday trekking round my own dungeon, mapping it, acquiring items, and then finally killing off the monsters (sorry, f-list...). I ran out of spare minutes and had to head off for my train before I finished the dungeon. So I bookmarked the page, as it says to do, so I could come back and finish it today. *sigh* Of course, the bookmark dumps me in a different room, attacking a monster with my bare hands, with nothing in my inventory. That really, really sucks. Well, I shall find something else to do with my spare minutes. Like work. Feh!
