My procrastination is now rising to obscene levels. I just participated in an over the phone market research survey to try to avoid work. And now I am posting about it... this is bad.

I have also realised why I don't post fic when I'm trying to work. I keep distracting myself by checking on reviews. ^_^;; As my essay is on my laptop in my room and the Internet is connected to the desktop in the study downstairs, this causes a few slight problems.

Four more sleeps until new Spn.

Stolen from practically everyone on my f-list.

List sixteen random things about yourself, then tag sixteen people to do the same. Except I'm not sure there's anyone left to tag who would want to be tagged. *shrug* Feel free to do it if you want to.

16 things )

Meh, that was probably spectacularly boring, but I am a spectacularly boring person... and I had nothing better to do (except write essays, and my [ profile] reel_merlin fic, which is still going strong at 50k O.o;;)

ETA 9.42pm: Five more sleeps until new Spn. Joy! ^_^

My brain is mush.

I've got three Merlin fics going now. One is the [ profile] reel_merlin the others both started in the last two days. One of which is complete fairy tale crack, and the other is angsty Merlin-in-exile/on-the-run fic which seems to have developed plot (why does that keep happening) It was supposed to be short and involve Merlin and Arthur meeting up by accident somewhere and Arthur keeping his secret, but now it has grown (and has Gawain in. Yay Gawain!) and developed and apparently Excalibur is involved.

I wish something I wrote would just sick to the plan sometimes.

That's not the problem though, the problem is I think my muses are tired. I start writing and then I just get bored I should be doing work... I really should be doing work, but I can't bring myself to do that either.

Maybe if I start doing work my muses will star working again and then I will stop playing the stupid pinball game on my laptop and start actually doing something useful. Damn pinball's addictive, I swear. Not that I can play it properly, but I don't really care. I'm only trying to beat myself.

So... work, and then writing?

For once unrelated to fan stuff. Well, not really, but more about what's going on in my life than fanstuff.

Yesterday we managed to fit 17 people on a bed... not standing up. There are photos on facebook. I really have no idea why we did it, but somehow we managed it. There were also other hairbrained schemes involving rubber birth control devices, a saucepan of boiling water and someone's wardrobe. Make of that what you will, but it didn't quite work.

Today I have been trying desperately to revise. I have an exam on poetry tomorrow and I need to know Donne, Marvell, Herbert and at least some of Paradise Lost by heart before 9.30 tomorrow morning. See how monumentally screwed I am. So so so very screwed. Particularly as I ordered DVDs last week and some of them arrived today. The first 4 seasons of That 70s Show... so shiny and new, and I can't watch them. :'( But I had to check that they worked... right?

I know, I know. Lame excuse. And Supernatural Season 2 Part 1 should be arriving in the next couple of days so I am doubly screwed...

Pirates is out this week, but I won't be able to see it until next week because I'm a good girl and I do intend to try to pass my exams (40% has never seemed so impossible).

In wonderful wonderful news though. I might be going to see Bill Bailey! EEEEEE... he's going to be in Newcastle in November and a friend is going to try and get tickets. How awesome would that be?

I really need to get back to revision.

Srsly... poetry sucks. I like it, but it sucks.

Personality Quiz thing - pretty damn accurate, for once.

I'm a semi-concientious, semi-neurotic, sometimes agreeable, open-minded, introvert - who would have guessed? )

So yeah - I am trying to avoid English Coursework - big deal- It's almost the right length now... without a conclusion. ^_^

I've revisited Elouai as well... help me!
