RP Meme! [Jan. 5th, 2009|12:13 pm]
From [info]lienne and [info]ohhfantastic and [info]weaverandom and about a thousand other people who were a little further down my f'list.

Our house smells like dead fish. :( )

ETA: Victory is ours. The house no longer smells like dead fish.

I want a happy Sokka icon. [Jan. 4th, 2009|01:03 am]
...it probably should not be this difficult to email a tutor. Yeah, my sixth form teachers were onto something when they said I had trouble asking for help. *snork*

Regardless, I have sent off an email to the effect of "sorry for being faily I am now going to stop being faily", and I have drawn up a list of the ways in which I'm going to stop being faily, in a bigass font on my pinboard (note to self: buy more pins). And I am also infintely grateful and FULL OF WAFFU WUV for [info]lienne, because her going "screw you, January!" has inspired me to stop going "nuuu i be dyin of January" and instead go "yeah! Screw you, January! YOU CAN'T BRING ME DOWN!" And then after the revolution there will be truth, and justice, and love in many delicious flavours and also, yes, a hard-boiled egg.

And that is the state of Caz at the moment. I've only just started the warm-ups, but at least I'm no longer sitting on the substitute bench moaning that I'm out of shape.

Icon meme! [Jan. 1st, 2009|10:37 pm]
Ganked from the fantabulous [info]lienne. And two things to clarify: one, that I'm taking the "fave" ones to mean, say, "favourite icon that represents ___" rather than "this icon represents my fave ___". Two, that I had more than one answer for some, so I've taken advantage of that to juggle them around and avoid repetitions. Just, uh, so you know.

Doing this partly because it'll be fun to look back on afterwards. :D )

I TAG EVERYONE READING THIS. *tag* *tag* *tag*

Hi, 2009. [Jan. 1st, 2009|01:30 am]
If you are better than 2008, then I will give you cookies.

...Well, that's a little harsh. 2008 had
, after all.

How about this: if you end on a happier note than 2007 and 2008, and don't include any major failsplosions, then I will give you cookies. Do we have a deal?

(I would also like the same damn microsoft popup to stop popping up and popping up and popping up and popping up and popping up and popping up and popping up and popping up, but I suspect that I need to voice this complaint to an authority other than the date.)

Ed would just like to ensure that everybody knows the following image is a link. It's a link, guys. The clickable kind that takes you places on the internet. Link. Linky linky linky. Link. Got it? Good. :D

Words! [Dec. 22nd, 2008|05:46 pm]
I am afflicted by Fail today, and as such am receiving a -1 penalty to all my saving throws vs Dumb. Regardless, although it is doing so with the approximate pace and willing nature of a decapitated camel, my novelbaby is coming along. :D

Ten reasons why gay marriage should be illegal.

Convincing stuff, I think. Definitely worth passing around.

ETA: "People are people, love is love, and that is that." And for once in an internet debate, this is the prevailing opinion. :D Don't ask me why I'm debating homosexuality on a videogame forum, yo.

In which you can all marvel at the depth of my technical computer-related knowledge. [Dec. 17th, 2008|10:49 pm]
...I give up. Facebook, you win this round. But please to be letting me log on for more than five seconds at a time sometime soon? It'd be nice to be able to keep in contact with people, just sayin'.

Also! The thing with Internet Explorer being bug-o-riffic with trojans that steal personal information from your computer has me deeply freaked out, because I use it quite frequently, seeing as it's the only browser the stupid university email will work on. Time for me to upgrade my anti-nasty-things software. :(

Pretend that I haven't been neglecting the "good shit happened today" meme in favour of emo and silence. I'ma try to pick that up again, possibly. For now, here is today's offering: 1179 words and counting for today, you guys! :D

Avatar casting = what the hell. And everyone else on the internet has phrased this a lot better than I can, and also I'm braindead, so I'm just going to say go to [info]aang_aint_white and read the stuff there and check out some of the links and see why this is so full of bad and fail.

In less globally important news, I'm doing a thing to make me think that I can do things. 20,000 words of my one-day-this-will-be-a-novel by the time I go back to uni in the new year. Think of it as my own personal less-challenging NaNoWriMo. And if I manage to do this thing, then I will once again believe that I am capable of doing things in general, or at least that's the theory.

The following wordcount represents the entirety of the first scene. It's less of an impressive start when you consider that it took me three days to do, and that the first half was a rewrite rather than a bunch of new stuff, but I'm pretty pleased with it nonetheless.

I am just sleeping... so much at the moment, and I can hardly breathe in without coughing up a lung. Hopefully the one will encourage the end of the other. When I get sick, I really don't do it by halves. xD And anything requiring brainpower is apparently on hold for the moment. Hrrm. Shall have to get up tomorrow and knock something together for the workshop that afternoon, though.

Because I didn't get around to the good things meme last night: yesterday I got some shopping done that I needed to. Today, I spoke to one of my English tutors and I'm feeling more positive about my course (read: I don't feel like I'm going to get kicked out in short order because of Fail). Importantly, because I haven't said it yet, thank you so much to the people who commented to that love meme a few days ago-- I know it's easy to type the words "it made me smile", but I absolutely mean them. Thank you. ♥

Before I sign off, I stole an art meme from [info]lienne:

The first five number-until-I-get-tired-of-this people to comment in this post get to request a sketch of a character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their drawing ability level. If you absolutely can't draw, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drabbles or icons or something instead.

You have to offer this so I can take up all your slots in return!

So go wild! Art is the perfect thing for me to do when my brain is not on speaking terms with any kind of writing. My graphics pen has broken again, and this time it's resisting all attempts at assisted reincarnation, so until the new one arrives (hopefully/possibly January-time) it'll be all scanned drawings, all the time. Have at.

Heroes 3x12, "Our Father" [Dec. 10th, 2008|07:05 am]
For [info]heroes_meta. Do I have thoughts on Heroes episode 12, beyond "holy crap that was actually rather good"? Hmmm.

I have a few! )

Anybody who'd given up on Heroes (because goodness knows I nearly did)? This is your cue to jump back on board. It's getting to be great again.

Ooies. [Dec. 9th, 2008|10:55 am]
Things that were good about today:

My throat has stopped feeling like the interior of a nest of very angry wasps, and so now I can swallow and talk and everything. Also, I went to see my friend in a carol concert, and it was epic Christmas-celebrating ear-thrilling haven't-been-in-a-church-for-ages-realising win. Also also, my tutor finally got back to his group about personal meetings, so now I know that mine is in the New Year and that I haven't just missed it through dumb. :D!

Because I am le tired, I am going to be deliberately lazy. If you have good stuff going on that you want the world to know about, or you feel like you want to remind yourself of the good things you have going for you, or you just enjoy a good memespam, then consider yourself tagged. ♥

Apparently I spent my year using Twitter and complaining about things. [Dec. 9th, 2008|01:26 am]
That summing-up-the-year meme thing that everyone's doing right now. )

(For bonus lulz and actual original content in this entry: it just hit me that this time last year, I still thought I was straight. HOW TIME MARCHES ON.)

Yessir! [Dec. 8th, 2008|11:49 am]
Tagged by the ohhfabulous [info]ohhfantastic:
1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this everyday for a week without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same.

Obvious answer: I finished my creative folder and I love it so much and I want to take it home and cuddle it and feed it freshly-baked willpower muffins. Yes, I've mentioned CW once already today, but gorrammit I love it so much that it's worth taking this excuse to repeat. When English Lit slaps me around and calls me names, Creative Writing is always there to hold me and tell me that everything's okay.

The moral of this post is that I should not try to personify things when sleep-deprived. >_>

Uni News You Need To Know [Dec. 8th, 2008|08:07 am]
The cold hasn't quite gone away, so it hurts when I breathe or turn my head and I think I'm hallucinating smells, BUT this suddenly does not bother me any more because the three thousand (plus most of the cushion of 150) words of creative writing folder are done and dusted, ladies and gentlemen and Xs. DONE. AND. DUSTED. I AM THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD.

(Shh, it was harder than it sounds, because one story was a thousand words more than it should have been and my essay kept getting longer and longer and I had to cut out so many adjectives. Adjectives. My baaaaaabies. But on the plus side, oh man, creative writing. Most fantastic subject ever. I know how shocking this sounds, but I enjoyed writing this essay, folks. Yeah, I know. :O!)

So now finally I can (a) go get a folder for the thing once the shop opens; (b) fill out a form of whatever and hand the whole thing in at last; and (c) sleep. Then, after sleep, I can slink about and tag all these rp threads that I apparently last visited around the 3rd and 4th asldahlsjdal oh bugger when did days start passing. And then after tags I can... go start the research for the umpteen English essays and mysterious online tests I have to do over Christmas? Funsauce. Yeah, I'm liking the idea of dropping English modules in favour of Creative Writing ones next September.

In unrelated news, the constant sessions of loud irregular banging in the pipes in my room are still driving me mental. And in similarly unrelated but rather more cheerful news, because I don't want to end this entry on a sour note: Christmas is coming, you guys! You know, in case you hadn't noticed.

This can double as my wishlist, right? [Dec. 7th, 2008|03:36 pm]
Guest starring: everyone loves a good love meme.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, cazrolime sent to me...
Twelve nostalgia_ljs drumming
Eleven travis piping
Ten myths a-leaping
Nine icons dancing
Eight webcomics a-reading
Seven heroes a-writing
Six superpowers a-singing
Five co-o-o-ockroaches
Four stealing brains
Three industrial basslanes
Two overusing lyrics
...and a ppc in a setting interest trends apparently.
Get your own Twelve Days:

Nothing that isn't very predictable, then. *dies*

Virus Day [Dec. 7th, 2008|01:56 am]
ATTN: Facebook virus.

Because I know some of my flist is on facebook, and the old saying that forewarned is forearmed applies here. Thank you to [info]ohhfantastic, who linked to the story too.
