Last week's episode of Supernatural was so amazing that I kind of forgot there was another episode coming up.

Every day for 30 days, you post something good that happened that day. Don't mention any bad things near the meme!

Day 25/30: Bruce let me pick him up today! He's not as easily handled though, gets antsy very quickly and can only be kept out of his hut for about two or three minutes, tops. Arnie on the other hand just resigns himself to his fate once he's been picked up, and even consents to being petted.

Day 26/30: Today marks the start of a lost weekend :D. Tomorrow's my sister's birthday party, and Monday is my sister's actual birthday. While there are several bottles of rose wine with my name on them at the minute, I'm increasingly intrigued by the possibility of getting in some beers. Maybe even good old fashioned Newcastle Brown <3, which I will always remember with fondness courtesy of the time where after three of them I managed to fall sideways off a sofa into a sort of... sitting cartwheel. There were many limbs a-flailing. XD

Getting closer to the end of this 30 days thing, and I think it was a good idea to be honest. It gave me something to do in February, which is normally the worst month for me, and it's fun to dwell on the positive things in life, even if it can take a while to think up what they might be.

Also, having had that to keep me going through February means that I had something to make the time pass faster, an all important skill given it's ALMOST DRAGON AGE 2 TIME. *EXPLODES*

Day 23/30: ANOTHER FEBRUARY IS OVER. \o/ \o/ \o/

Day 24/30: Finally managed to get Arnie to let me hold him without his squirming away in panic. Holding a small furry animal close to your chest is the closest to being God you will ever get. I love it.

Also, finished the Balthazar/Castiel fic, and made headway on the Hellboy fic I owe at long last, so I can justify putting up offers at [profile] help_nz:

- One podfic of up to 5000 words

- One fanfic of 1000 words minimum

If any of you are interested, bidding's open until March 8th <3.

Day 21/30: Finished writing the Balthazar/Castiel fic :D :D :D! Now just to get it betaed. Final footporn content; surprisingly low. Final porn-in-general content; >:)

Day 22/30: Today I walked around the Albert Dock barefoot, and it was awesome. There's something surprisingly thrilling and relaxing at the same time about going barefoot in public places, I reckon.

Also, tonight is a Patsy-cooking-dinner night, so I am full of joy (and soon to be full of Spaghetti Carbonara, om nom nom). I intend to try and use the free time to finish one of my charity-owed stories and/or a podfic so I can guilt-free make some offerings for the NZ disaster.

Day 20/30: Fell behind on this because I'm easily distracted so I'll just pick up again from today onwards, but I do still want to finish this thing :).

Today a customer casually chatted to me about his boyfriend while we were fixing his broadband fault. Earlier this week another customer mentioned that her girlfriend's computer was connecting fine though her own wasn't.

As a society we still have a lot of improvements to make, but the fact that there are people who feel safe enough mentioning their same sex relationships in conversation with a complete stranger means that there's no doubt about it, there have been improvements since I was a kid. And that's a good, comforting sign, even if those improvements are taking more time than they should <3.

Day 19/30:

Okay, even though this week's episode of Supernatural was very silly, I will nonetheless give it major kudos on two fronts;

1) It actually scared me at points (look, Silent Hill 2 gave me a ~thing~ about this episode's variety of MOTW).

2) I reshipped Wincest after it. I'd forgotten how good it is to see Sam and Dean completely adoring each other in their own way <3.

Day 17/30: Rather unexpectedly, a friend said something to me completely out of the blue that was so sweet I cried. So, yes, that was good <3.

Day 18/30: SURPRISE WINE. My sister was tidying up our fridge and found a bottle of Mateus Rose hidden around the back. Awesome! Also? The preview for episode 6x15 of Supernatural. Anything I have ever said in the negative about that episode, I take back, because it looks hilarious. I trust Ben Edlund.

There is one remaining concern (cut for brief character appearance spoiler). )

Off to try and do some writing now. COME ON, MUSE, BITE ME HARD.

ETA: While reading some of the questions people want youtube to ask David Cameron is a vomit-inducing process, I would gladly pay money to see this question get through - "Are YOU a freemason or a puupet of the illuminati?" (word for word, that was one person's question) - just to watch his face go "... What?".

Day 15/30: Dull day (again, no complaints as it's more welcome than a bad day), but tumblr and 4chan were both amazing, so have some evidence via a mini-picspam.

Aww yeah. Warning: A spider may be in here. )

Day 16/30: I had a four hour nap. Awwwwww yeaaaaaah. Now to go get some more, so I'm perky for my mate Blakey tomorrow <3.

OH. OH. And while I remember? This is the best adult toy site ever. As far as I'm concerned that's not TMI, it's a public service announcement. XD

In addition, as I'm always after something to do in work between calls and I'm completely unable to write anything ficcish at the moment despite various attempts and a massive backlog:

On LiveJournal, we often think we're close, but really, we know less about each other than we like to think.

So I want you to ask me something you would like to know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about, or something you've always been curious about but have never asked, or something completely silly that you'd like me to answer for kicks.

No limits on the range of questions, either: ask me anything you want to know about, whether it's a fannish opinion or trivia about my real life or my thoughts on events in the offline world.

Day 14/30: I came home expecting Arnold Clarence Schwartzenegger... and met his new companion :D, Bruce Quina Quen Willis. They're still skittish but they're getting used to us bit by bit, and omg. They're just gorgeous. *hearts*

In other news, I think I need a few days to myself, really. Every so often I feel like I understand my life and how I live it just a little bit more, but it always knocks the wind out of me, even if (as it is in this case) it's a positive realisation. It's very tiring, turning off autopilot, but it's worth the effort.

:D

Day 12/30: Mum sent me and my sister valentine's day cards.

My sister wins, though. She got a Twilight card. We both just about died laughing XD.

Also, Sam in Supernatural. D'aww, I forgot just how much I love the puppy-dog eyes - and how much better looking Dean is when he's happy. Hell, even his butt looks happier. Not that I was looking or anything.

TOMORROW'S AIM: GET SHIT DONE. I've been lazing on fannish things while getting my real life back in order, and now I'm back on early shifts at work so I'll have the energy to get things written at last.

ETA:

Day 11/30: THIS FIC OH MY GOD

Not the Gumdrop Buttons
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen, past Jensen/Jeffrey Dean Morgan, background past Chris/Alona and gingerbread!Chad/gingerbread!Sophia
Summary: AU: Jared is a gingerbread cookie, Jensen is the chef who loves him to life, and somehow things just get weirder from there.

IF THAT ISN'T ALL THE MOTIVATION YOU NEED TO READ SOMETHING, RPF OR NOT (seriously, I broke my no RPF rule for this and NO REGRETS, NO REGRETS WHATSOEVER), I DON'T KNOW WHAT COULD MOTIVATE YOU.

It is adorable and magical and romantic and hilarious and asdfafsdafasdfas CANNOT RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH.

Day 10/30: Today has been astonishingly dull but I just drank a whole mug of egg custard

Yeah, you heard me

I drank it

Oh god seriously today was the most extraordinarily boring day, which isn't bad because bad/miserable days ARE worse, but still, ugh

Day 9/30: Dude, the dream I had last night. IT WAS BRILLIANT. Not necessarily epic, just brilliant.

I dreamt I had my lads from university staying over at my place and we were watching television in my room after I'd had a fight with my sister about the housework (namely that I hadn't done any and she'd done loads, and basically I was in the wrong and I knew it).

On screen it then cut to a beach where Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet were walking along, picking up pretty bits of shrapnel and coins and gems out of the water (apparently the Titanic had washed up on the beach), and Leo was singing something and Kate was wondering aloud if they were being disrespectful by laughing and having a good time.

Then it cut to Glee, and Kurt and Blaine were picking up similar bits of pretty bric-a-brac off a sandy wooden dance floor before sitting down either side of a plug socket and talking about how Kate and Leo had kissed there (apparently this dance floor was the remains of the beach scene after the water and most of the sand had been drained away. IDK either), and were just looking at each other cutely and I was watching this and worrying about what would happen to them because I'd heard that their kiss got interrupted somewhere. But they didn't! Kurt and Blaine kissed and it was really, really cute and sweet and romantic, and then it flashed to Kate and Leo kissing, and for some reason Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger (after looking at each other and shrugging and going for it), and then the bully in Glee and his friend went to kiss each other but one of them had been lying on his side and when he rolled over they just sort of bumped into each other messily.

Then for some reason it cut away to Olivia Wilde and Gary Busey in a hot tub, and he tried to kiss her but she pushed him away and just looked at him and said "I'm wearing a dress," (which she was, it was blue) "And you're not even hot."

And then Gary Busey looked bummed, and I woke up.

Day 7/30: I had the most fantastic day of terrible (or sometimes silly and amazing) movie-watching with [profile] fahrenheit_f430. Plus, delicious food <3. I'd also forgotten just how much fun Resident Evil: Apocalypse is, because I tend to get distracted by the first and third movies. I really, really need to catch the fourth sometime.

Day 8/30: Finalised arrangements with my darling mate Blakey for him staying up next weekend. Woohoo! :D

In other news, I dreamt I shot my butcher because he wouldn't sell me smoked sausage. I don't even LIKE sausages, of any sort. I walked in, shot him in the stomach when he wouldn't sell me any, walked out, and when a woman outside said "You weren't supposed to shoot him!" I put my pistol away and said "He'll live", before walking off. WHAT?

Day 4/30: Today I went to a protest against the library cuts, and I had scones in the Anglican Cathedral!



If you look under the RIGHT TO WORK / DEFEND SERVICES banner you can see my bright white scarf :D. I was wearing black leggings and a black coat so the rest of me is nondescript XD, and my face is hidden by the banner. How handy!

Also, Supernatural. Omgomgomg )


Day 5/30: I found I hadn't given away my long black skirt or my black and white stripey blouse! This means I don't have to buy a new skirt or blouse for the steampunk day out in July. Also, Liverpool beat Chelsea AFTER selling Torres to them.




Day 6/30: Get into work, check flist, see this -



- DIE OF EXCITEMENT.

Day 3/30: Free cake! Not even kidding - they had TOO MUCH cake at work for the new people in training so they shared the remaining cake out around the office. Also, suddenly realising I can add Balthazar/Castiel to my list of srs bznss ships, because I loooooove new ships.

Day 1/30: Today I finally woke up early enough to wash and have breakfast before work! Normally I forsake the latter on account of the former not really being optional, but today I could do both.

Also, finding this on tumblr: )
