Wales always messes with me. I always forget that I need to look for Welsh place-names rather than the English ones, and that roads that continue on maps tend to turn into the sea without warning on the land. I also forget that Gaelic is no help whatsoever with anything Welsh. *sighs* I am never driving in Wales by myself again, I only managed to escape via Sennybridge, which was helpfully labeled by the Army with "East-bound (England) Traffic, follow BYPASS A40". In Red.

On the plus side, I had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in; the cute little pub had awesome cider that knocked me sideways at two in the afternoon; and I just had 'gigli' pasta, which has indeed made me giggly. *beams*

Never again Wales, never again until next year at least.

I have this nagging feeling that I was supposed to do something for someone today, but I can't think what it was or for whom. I just hope it wasn't too important, whatever it was...

I am trying to tax my car. Unless I tax my car, I can't drive her on the roads. I need to drive her on the roads to get to school.

Taxing my car means paying money to the Government. The Government thinks this is a good thing. The Government needs more money. Why are they making it so difficult therefore to tax my car?

*screams* I'mma use someone else's car, since I can't tax my car.

NGH! I cannot write fic! At all *headdesk*. Even despite all the pretty words in my head.

Anyone want to rec me any anal beads fic to kick the muse into gear?

Once again, I find myself doing maths for fun. Something is wrong with this, maybe I stepped into an alternate universe by accident? I want to live in the Golden Compass Universe, mostly because I'd love a daemon.

I leant my step-brother my Laptop so he could do Geography Coursework last night (my laptop runs Vista and is a million times faster than the desktop he was trying to use).

Anyway, now that I've got the laptop back, I went to open a WIP and found that all my recent items have changed. There's a load of Geography (expected), and some slash fic that I haven't opened in months. My step brother read my porn... Umm... What do I even do with that?

Migrane coming on. Exam tomorrow. Feel like someone buried an iceaxe in my head. *grumbles*

And I missed going to see the new X-Men movie, because my friend's uncle was unexpectedly taken ill and she was all worried about trying to get back in time. I she's OK. Pretty Gambit is pretty though, and I really wanted to see him on a big screen.

So, because I am shallow, I watched the Pilot of Friday Night Lights, which is about American Football. Thankfully, my step brother is quite into American Football at the moment, so I'm sure he can explain all the technical stuff to me. What confuses me most though is the part where they pray before and after each game. I know Texas is a very Christian part of America, but I can't work out if this is an exaggeration or an actual representation or... what.

Also, I managed to sign up for a fic challenge, and the deadline is the end of May, so I started to plot it out while lying in the sun this afternoon. The damn thing is 3,000 words already and I'm only on the second bullet point of plot. *headdesk* Why do I do this to myself.

*sigh* did manage to do something constructive today though:

Torchwood, Captain Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones, wings
