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* )

Icon mememememe!

From [livejournal.com profile] jojosimco...

Audience participation is optional but the mememememe is as follows:

1. Reply to this post saying "ME! ME! ME!", and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

She chose these five of my icons...

And I'm leaving them as a strip because they're so pretty... I like my icons... *g*

The first one is one I don't use nearly often enough, and do I do rather love it - it's Don DeMarco, from Ladder of Swords, playing the fiddle at dusk, and there are four of my favourite things, right there... I adore that time of day, when the stars are just coming out, and everything is magical - or perhaps because it could be magical, it's a time in between the world of day and the world of night, where everything might become possible... And Don DeMarco is my second-favourite MS character - I love that he's so real and unheroic, which is what makes him utterly a hero... And hee - I even made that icon myself... *g*

The second one... )

'tis s a lovely looking day outside, all blue skies and buds on the trees, but I seem to be having a hard time getting going, so I thought I'd have a ramble and see if that helped... *g*

You know those mornings when you just don't know where to start? And the bits that you do start sort of make you blink? Well I was very good, and when I was woken by five year old wailing (she's five for gods' sake, but she insists on wailing when she wakes up in the morning - not a sunny nature before ten, that one!) I looked out the window at the gorgeous frosty morning and decided I would go for a walk. Be all peaceful, get the woken-by-wailing grump out of my system. Except that I got to the bottom of the hill, and was suddenly assailed by the sound of children shouting, and mother shouting and gawd knows what from the big house up there. If I carried on walking ahead I'd be listening to that for 20 minutes, if I took the footpath to the right I'd still be hearing it for quite some time - the only way to avoid the shrieks of other people's children was to go back. So I did. I was a good quarter of a mile away from that house, by the way - and there was nowhere else it could have been coming from! And it was only just after seven in the morning! Buggers.

So then I was wandering around lj, catching up on threads I'd been chatting in, working up the energy to think of things decently enough to converse with other people (I know, I don't usually let that stop me... *g*) when I came across this beside one of my contributions:

Icon hijack! I want my B/D in leather jackets back, but as it's hijacked on my userpic page too, I suspect I will have to fix that myself. Buggers!

Aaaand... stuff. So I have to go to the post office, and transcribe from a dvd (old play performed in Manchester in the 70s, very cool and quite good for Pros-y research in fact - remember the attitudes - but very time consuming! It takes about an hour to transcribe six minutes of film!) And I should tidy, and I should take advantage of the day and go find somewhere quiet to walk! (Or at least interesting... *g*) Aaaand... stuff. Oh, and I totally have to post about [livejournal.com profile] loiteringpalely and the whole zine thing, because I've not done that yet... and I have betas to do... I need some energy back, some motivation to get on with it! Where does that come from, again?

On the bright side, I've already opened me Comic Relief fic, to carry on from where I left off yesterday (I actually have been doing it!) Now I just have to work up the energy to get involved in it... and everything else. Help! Someone kick me!

Just as the world was looking suck-y... Is this not the bestest, most beautiful icon of the lads for Christmas? I was all cheeky and asked the fabulous - and very generous too *g* - [livejournal.com profile] hambelandjemima if she could do it for me, and she did, and now I'm just all... just all happy and feeling Pros-y ready for tomorrow after all.

See - this is why I want this as a life! *vbg* Because instead of feeling grumpy Pros can make me eye that Never the Words They Say fic, and wonder if it's about time, even after a really really bad day! *hugs Pros* *hugs [livejournal.com profile] hambelandjemima*

Yeay. I made an icon. See? Its only simple an' all, but I did it all by myself! Excitement! Yet more ways to not do work!

Am also loving the Media Cannibals vid from Circuit right now. Its growing on me the more I watch it too - great song and very them. Lover was a comrade, was a stranger, was a friend..., how perfect is that?
overexcited ramblings that have very little to do with Pros )
