So... I finished this session's marking - huzzah! Very odd it is too - didn't know what to do with myself last night, not having to sit in front of the computer and decipher panicked handwriting for a couple of hours, so I watched some more Northern Exposure - one of my favourite ones, First Snow, which made me just a wee bit more homesick for Alaska... NE's pretty close in alot of ways (though the trees are way to tall for where I was... *g*)

Oh, and hmmmn - this is what my world looked like in February 2007!


A little more 2007... )

But this is what my world looked like on Saturday, when I went off for an adventure somewhere new, which turned out to be the noisiest forest in the whole world...

There was mist, and a lake, and ancient, ancient trees...

Hatfield Forest, hear it roar... )

Except that stoopid roaring world also has Remakes, Reboots and Re-imaginings on at the BFI at Southbank tonight and I'm going! I'm going to see the lads on the big screen! Wheeeee! I suppose it's too much to hope that there'll be movie posters, but... *sighs happily* And there'll be an ep of The New Professionals too, which I've never seen, and which [livejournal.com profile] agentxpndble very cleverly and timelyly posted about last night...

And now I suppose I'd better go to work for - whee, three hours! - so that I can hit the road and brave the cold and get meself to the big smoke... *vbg*

First of all, a big hooray cos I finished marking in time - although they've already given me extra, and we're not even at the bonus deadline yet, never mind the regular one... *g* But yeay, officially finished!

Second of all - they missed out the whole Northwest Passage thing from Empire of the Seas, which waah, but still it was kind of a decent series, and the first one I've watched like that for ages, so... *g* It's all about the water... Thames Barges next... *vbg*

Third of all, I don't often watch Jonathan Ross, but it turned out John Barrowman was on tonight, and since I missed him doing all his talk shows when I was in Alaska, I thought I'd leave him on, and... heee! I was kind of watching through squinted eyes, but he just always seems to be having the best time - and heee for him pretending to faint when Shahrukh Khan kissed him, and hee for him singing Copacabana, and being excited about the whole Desperate Housewives thing, and talking about TW and DW, and... yeah. Some people just do make you feel happy just by being. *g*

And fourthly of all... [livejournal.com profile] greengerbil gave me these five icons to talk about, so...

...I will... *g* )

It's a brilliant night for Pros so far - I found Prosfic by a new author, there's Prosfic by an old author being archived (yeay for archivists posting fic that we can't find elsewhere on line - worth a cheer that! *g*) and in just under half an hour, Female Factor is on! Yeay!

Some other ramblings about much stuff )

Well, this is it - half an hour left, which means that it's probably time to pack up the computer! *sniffs* Not sure when I'll hit the internet next, but I will be back... Washington DC, here I come (slashfic and memory stick of Pros stuff safely packed). Hee - I've got my Prosvids on, and it's now Recycled Media's "Where Are You Now?" ... I miss talking with you... *is maudlin*. *But not really*. *Makes fuss when the internet is everywhere*. *Stops being silly*.

So, I hope everyone's having a fab weekend, and I shall see y'all from another part of the world anon *g*

Well, been less than inspired over the past few days, and am now not sure which ramblings to start with.
So lets start here )

I'm calm now. At the time I may have been somewhat - terse - with both the woman in human resources, and the one in the college who decided to send me the information two days before christmas. I slammed the door. I kicked the file cabinet (steel-toed boots). My lovely sister-in-starbucks, the gorgeous Stepheeee (*waves*) did an admirable job in a 90 minute international phone conversation in preventing me from rushing downstairs and bloodying the lovely carpet. I've taken out all my aggression on random shoppers at the supermarket - don't worry, only with glares, and none that were intercepted. And finally, I've watched Judge John Deed who is calming, right? So it's okay now.
Here be gritted teeth )

Ooh, stretch-yawn-wriggle. Nice to be back home in my little cabin, after five days housesitting. Back with my own gorgeous computer, full of the Boys and other joys... Although to be fair its been a beautiful weekend, the sky has been clear, the sun has been out ... which means that its been -37C according to the gauge down the hill. But I've also been car-sitting, keeping my bum warm on heated leather and being way too excited about using the autostart.
Further )
Anyway, I borrowed a digital camera from the library this weekend, and thought I'd share some of the results. I give you - my world today:

In The Pink )

And in other news... well, there isn't any really. But I'm planning on either JJD or a Pros ep, so be prepared for further rambling.

For the first night in ages I've barely B&D-d at all, and I definitely wrote no fic! Need a break after the week-that-didn't-go-anywhere. Well, it did, but its gonna take a lot more than that to get it done right. So I shall post it next halloween perhaps ; ) Well, at least I shall get on with some of my others and come back to it later...

What I did do tonight - no, not work, sillies - was compile a list of zine recs from replies made by the lovely people over at ProsLit. [livejournal.com profile] enednoviel and I have both been trying to figure out which zines to splash out on, cos there are just so many to choose from... and even saying things like "Anything from Doghouse Press" doesn't help hugely cos the list is lo-ong. The various rec sites are great and helpful, but I'm the greedy type I guess - I want more information! So if anyone out there on my flist has any recommendations it'd be really appreciated too *grins hopefully*. (With big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] minesapint for the many excellent ideas already contributed, btw...) And if anyone else is interested in seeing the zine rec compilation when its done, then do let me know, I'm happy to share!

And now - Heat Trace beckons...

Got taste?

Well now, here's a thing. I've been happily watching Pros on my computer's dvd rw, which I installed myself and is working just fine. Its set to Region 2, because the whole point was I could use it to play my Region 2 dvds if I couldn't get a multi-regional player over here. I'd only just got it sorted before I left, but I had checked that it was working. It was. Now I'm here. This same dvd drive, with no changes made to it, won't play my shiny store-bought R2 dvds anymore. Except for my Pros dvds. Which say that they're R2. Now, I'm not complaining. Not exactly. Cos it'll play my "back up" dvds, which have been region freed. So I guess I can just back up the others and the effect'll be the same.

*pause to back up an R2 dvd that won't play, to see if this works. Yup.*.

There's clearly something up so that it'll only play region free dvds, even tho' it thinks it'll play R2. And even tho' it'll read and copy R2. I suspect its all fixable. But my wtf is - why will it play my Pros box set? I don't understand! Does it just have really good taste in dvds? Or maybe it's been converted to slash! Maybe I should try a Starsky and Hutch or Due South R2 and see what happens..?

Hmmmn...

Well - just as I got all worked up to post my little fic-thing LJ started having problems with rich text! Argh! And since I have to catch the last bus of the day in 10 minutes, its just not gonna happen now after all. *sigh grumble grump waste of nervous energy...*

On the bright side, I get to go home now and play with this week's challenge...

And pretty new icons... : )

Must find somewhere to tell me the difference between things like drabbles and ficlets though. Is a ficlet bigger than a drabble?! It sounds as though it should be somehow - a drabble should be less than a page long, a ficlet longer and yet not actually a short story as such... hmmn...
