This is a Happy Post which is filled with happy things. Feel free to squee, or even add your own happy things to it. I am liking the amount of happy in this post.

May it be the shadows' call will fly away/ May it be you journey on to light the day/ When the night is overcome,/ You may rise to find the sun. )

Dear Girl'friends',

Thank you for forcing me to see Twilight. Now, rather than admiring Jacob's shoulders from afar and faintly lusting after Kellan Lutz, I am actively seeking Twilight slashfic. Do you know what happens when teenagers who were never taught grammar try to write slashfic? No? Good. It's not pretty, I assure you. Now I'm going to have to write some myself. I hope you're pleased with yourselves. You'd better dig out the second DVD for me tomorrow too, or else there'll be trouble (and I'll hide all the chocolate).

Love and Hugs,


Dear Pogue!Muse,

Stop fucking with Reid's car, you're making him twitchy. Stop flirting with the pretty tattoo artist, you're distracting her. Stop trying to think in abstract nouns and long-winded metaphors. This fic is not actually about you.

Marginally less love,


Dear Gen Kill!Muse,

Shut up, stand still, and wait your fucking turn. I'll get to you when I get to you, I'm still doing the research.

Out to You.


Dear Covenant People,

Please carry on with the achingly-hot distractingly-pretty porn. Especially when it involves Tyler being kinky. *licks lips*


PS I think Caleb could use some more love, though... *hints*

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...

It snoow on Bella and me! And we were very excited and managed not to slip too often on the roads. But it snoow! And there is pretty white stuff everywhere! *bounces-like-kid-on-speed* ♥

So, I may have fallen in love with Office 2007. Just a little. But it’s shiny! And there are COLOURTHEMES!

Also, there is OneNote, which just makes me want to organise myself (and I am never organised on the weekends, I operate a make-it-up-as-I-go-along system). It kind of makes me want to plot epic AUs with plot and screencaps! Which is very exciting. Especially since I never plan fic, and then I forget what I was thinking about and then all the epicness leaves.

Word does not approve of my made up words, however. I will have to find a system.. IT COUNTS YOUR WORDS AS YOU TYPE THEM! And then it flashes them up at you! This is the best WP software ever. And if you highlight words, it tells you the number of those words and also how many there are in total. I am writing fic just so I can keep using my shiny new programmes.

Ahem .

On a side note, I need to work out who I want one my GK icon. I'm thinking the LT, but Ray keeps looking at me like a kicked puppy, and I kind of have a soft spot for him...

Just to say... I'm not dead, just snowed under.

Urgh, I really wish people would stop setting me pointless tasks, it kind of gets in the way of the three or four tasks that are actually necessary, such as researching Waterloo and reading the thousand novels on my reading list (which are all disgustingly anti-male)...


This is all. ♥

1. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
2. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
3. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

Mostly, I'm using this wallpaper because my screen is 1440x900 and it's really hard to find anything that size. I love the colours in this picture, the purples and blues and the general sunset/early eveing feel to it. The real draw is the mountain range, especially with the snow. I also like that it's personal enough that I feel attached to it, but not so much that I hesitate to lend my laptop to other people (though I do have to lock some of my folders before I do that). Also, I think that if I had a picture of Jensen (like I do on my desktop) or Taylor, I'd never get anything done because I wouldn't want to open up any windows...

  • Can someone please explain the American Education System to me, or point me to some comprehensive information about it? I don’t want an overview or a compare/contrast, I just want to know what classes you can take in which years of High School, how come timetables seem to change each semester, what a semester is, and how Home Room works exactly (though it seems to follow the lines of my Public School Form Time). And someone to pick over some details of this with me would be helpful.

  • I have three Dreamwidth codes if there is anyone still left on LJ that doesn’t already have a Dreamwidth. I can give you the codes, but the rest you’re going to have to figure out for yourselves, since all I have achieved is a fancy header. Shout if you want a code.

  • I want to be Serena Van Der Woodson. It’s not working. *pouts*

Is it possible to die of too many spontaneous orgasms? Because I may just have ‘sploded…

Firstly, how is Taylor Kitsch this pretty!? Even with the crazy artistic shots, he’s just… *drools*.

And then there’s the part where I want to lick Chase Crawford’s shoulderblades

(and there have to be better pictures of his shoulders somewhere. And of Taylor’s shoulders. This might be my mission for this afternoon.).

Also, this guitar part just does stuff to me. Seriously, I’ve been looking for this piece for ages, because I remembered it was a good song, but now I can’t actually listen to it without closing my eyes and going to my happy place. So that will not be going onto my iPod for in the car.

On the plus side, I now have more Explosions on my iPod to calm me down after all the crazy hot ‘splodeyness. So I may yet make it through the day. *happy sigh*

And now, I will continue to write stuff that I’m not supposed to be writing. Because that’s just how I roll…

LLAMAS! *ahem*

New List:
  • [ profile] rounds_of_kink Prompts! And work out whether necrophilia is allowed when not specifically asked for... Um...

  • Find Beta's for prompts.

  • FNL Meta. Then phone Durham and ask if they will accept meta in place of classroom non-specific essay because someone took non-essay science classes for two years.

  • Find People to go on a Ghost Walk. Because I will be terrified and am therefore not going by myself...

  • Last Episode of FNL. *wibble*. I might cry though, so probably after work is best. *cries*

  • Shopping.

  • Ironing.

  • Swap Shifts with someone. It was never gonna happen, was it?

  • Remove Mother from Llama website. Possibly involving use of retcon.

Seriously though, they have a llama called Dalai...

Back in a melancholy mood (it may have something to do with the weather), so all the fic is going dark and trippy. I like it, but it's not right for any of the stuff Im trying to write just now (except maybe my TW prompt...). I don't know what to do about Torchwood either, since we've all been Jossed with regard to any canon we might have made up for Ianto, and I personally like my version of Ianto's backstory better. Does that make my Ianto AU though? *ponders*

What are the pink marshmallows supposed to taste of? Because they're definitly different to the white ones, and I'm not really tasting strawberry, so, what's it supposed to be? *ponders*

No working tonight! I love the rain *snuggles it*! So that leaves me with four tasks for this evening:
  • Laundry. Ooops, rain and no dryer... that's not going to work, is it? Done.

  • Bath! Baths are awesome, but will eat up the entire rest of my evening...(also, this is Bubble's favourite word!)

  • Write for [ profile] rounds_of_kink. But the muses are all gone, and there's nowhere quite to go sit and write, since my car's radiator's busted, and I can't fix her until it stops raining.

  • Catch up on FNL. I kind of don't want to. I've got two eps of Season 3 left to go, but I don't want to watch them until Season 4 comes out because I am stupid and don't want it ever to end... I can't read any more fics until I've seen them though *dilema*

This is not looking like a good list thing. Maybe the rain creates more problems than it solves...

Oooh! And shiny new layout! Just need to design a header now...
echoing_dream: (Default)
*worries* The price for not working yesterday (so I could get lost in Derbyshire instead!) is running the kitchen all by myself tonight. To be fair, I have one of the most awesome waitresses waiting on for me, but I’m not so sure about the other girl, don’t really like her very much. I know I’ve got the skills to do it, and if I just keep calm and direct people properly and don’t let things get on top of me that it’s all going to be OK, but… *worries more*

Yesterday was brilliant though, trying to cram all of our stuff into my tiny Isabella car. Poor baby could hardly get up the hills! And we scared everyone with out mad cornering skillz to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody, which was more than awesome. And only got lost twice, and ended up driving in circles.

I’m a little cross with my muses though. I had such bad writers block for such a long time, then the bunnies snuck up on me and I had to write a whole fic on a crumpled piece of paper while waiting for my friends to wake up. So I thought I’d be safe to challenge myself on [ profile] rounds_of_kink. Big mistake. The prompts only look tasty until they’re yours, then the inspiration just leaves. I hate how I can get all inspired and knock out random PWPs in an hour or so, but something that I’ve been plotting for weeks just refuses to be written.

Mmm, and how is Taylor Kitsch so pretty? I'm gonna put moods on everything, just so I get to see his prettyness everywhere *happy place*
