Okay, so it's not the next day, but it's sooner than last time (not that that's difficult).

I'm back up in the freezing cold hills now, and house hunting has started, tomorrow I'm going to look at a place and there are people coming round to see our house as well. It's a bit weird, seeing as we haven't really been here that long but that's the way it is I suppose.

Also, getting essays back again... Not looking forward to getting my Harry Potter one back (yes, I wrote an essay on Harry Potter... including the phallic symbolism of wands and Harry's Oedipal complex, along with a small debate on whether Dumbledore's homosexuality could really be said to be canon) as I only wrote it to show the tutor that I had no idea what I was doing and that she was useless. Yeah - I'm passive aggressive.

Also - I got a graphics tablet for Christmas. Now all I need is a decent graphics program and I'm home and dry... anyone who can tell me one I can download free while I'm saving money to buy one would be a lofe saver. I got Artweaver, but there was a slight problem and it ended up in German. I can't figure out how to use it.

I really need to start working on my summative essay - 3000 words, just under four weeks. Easy, except I haven't read the books, or the titles, most secondary sources will be checked out of the library by now and I'm sort of panicking.

Now is not the time to panic.

Now is the time to search out new books, new films and new rubbish (and check in on [ profile] spn_crackfic coz I'm useless and suggest a pficathon to tide us over when the writer's strike hits us).

Okay then... time to try and organise myself, again.

Wow... yesterday I felt like shit. My head was burning up, but the rest of my bod was freezing. I barely ate, I couldn't concentrate (even on Gundam Wing - see how bad it was!) and I had a headache, a sore throat, bunged up ears and nose, and a cough. I'm fairly certain I was a few degrees off reaching delirium before I went to sleep. I was lying in my bed feeling particularly detached from everything. It was decidedly odd.

I was ill for a couple of days before that too.

I would like to apologise formally to everyone waiting for me to do things. I moved into my house (I'm renting a house how insane is that?!) just under two weeks ago, and was assured that the Internet was working. Turns out there were a few minor glitches, though, add those to going round to other people's houses for parties, barbecues etc, and then being ill in an eye burny- ow the computer screen hurts sort of way and it pretty much equals me being online very very little. Now however, apart from a few lingering cold symptoms, I am fine. Although my hand eye coordination seems to have gone. I keep spilling water everywhere... when you're sitting at the computer that's not a good idea.

Anyway, I will be posting to spn_crackfic later this evening and either finishing off that challenge or giving people a final date... depending.

oh - SUPERNATURAL SEASON THREE STARTS TONIGHT!!!!! *JUMPS UP AND DOWN* and yes that dd deserve the capslock. Of course, I won't be able to watch it immediately, but still zomg!

Oh, the NaNoWriMo sign ups have started. For those of you who haven't heard of it, that's National Novel Writing Month. 50000 words in a month, it is possible, believe me! And even if you don't succeed it's an incredibly fun thing to try.

Ok - so Claire and I had an idea... and I created a community, and now I am pimping it.

I don't know how many of my f-list are interested in Supernatural, but here goes:

[ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic [ profile] spn_crackfic

It's a community for crack fanfiction and fanart in the Supernatural fandom. Anything from brotherly banter to Dean and Sam being attacked by pixies. It caters for all crack - from the just slightly weird to the utterly bizarre.

Please join, and please spread the word. It's been up for a while, and we have a few members, but so far only one person has mustered up the courage to post.

WE NEED YOU... well, we'd like to have you, please, if you feel up to it.

[ profile] spn_crackfic ...

Thanks for your time ^_^ sorry to clog up your friends page.
