Luckily, this 12th was a Saturday, and even luckier, it was a Christmas party! [livejournal.com profile] carawj and [livejournal.com profile] cosmic_llin had a Christmas extravaganza at their flat, which included mulled wine, apple crumble with custard, and the Muppet Christmas Carol - good times were had by all. Unfortunately, I was feeling pretty terrible, so spent an unfortunate amount of time collapsed on either the couch or the bed. And then I spent all of Sunday in bed, so that was great. But anyway, you can't really tell I was sick from the pictures...

Happy Christmas! )

Man it is so freezing in this house! Our timer has the heat going off at 11, so by now (2AM) it's just frigid. I'm all huddled under the covers, but my extremities are not happy. I think it's only hovering just at freezing right now, but it feels about that cold inside too. Urgh. I read somewhere we might have snow this weekend, but I totally don't believe that.

Look at me, in the middle of Nano, still managing to post my 12 of 12 pretty much on time. Of course, I haven't written anything today yet. (We'll see.)

It's mostly Nano pics this month, no surprise there. )

And, scene! It's Sat afternoon and we're deciding what to do tonight. We were supposed to go out to this club/art space closing out thing, but everyone is kinda half sick and moping around, so it's looking like it might not happen. There are just so many things to get done too. Plus, I'm right at yesterday's wordcount, no buffer, so if I want to keep up my goal of never being behind this year I need to write for an hour and a half. But it's 6pm! Ergh. We'll see.
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
Lo! it is the 15th and Lo! I am posting my 12 of 12! Well, it's a start anyhow. This is a bit of a back to life, back to reality month, since it's all normal again after holidays and moving and such. No city beaches and glass boxes in the sky here! Which is a reference to my Sept 12 of 12, which may have been mostly missed because I posted it like, a week ago and never put it on Chad's page. So if you're interested, that's here: yay Chicago!

Cats! Roller Derby! Netbooks! )

So there it is. A 12 of 12 posted kind of on time! I'm sitting here on the couch watching Gossip Girl with my housemates. Awesomely, Nick is totally addicted, so we've been working our way through season one. Fun stuff.
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
I was totally exhausted at work today, because Kaite ([livejournal.com profile] ladyvivien) is in London for the week (yay!) and stayed over at ours for the night. I met up at Million Monkeys (writing group) with her, [livejournal.com profile] lazyclaire, [livejournal.com profile] silly_cleo and [livejournal.com profile] apotropaios, which was fun, especially as I've never met Cleo but have heard lots about her from Kaite. (*waves!*) I think we scared/impressed each other with our LJ-stalkeryness about equally, so that worked out alright. Anyway, after dinner and a bit of a wander in downtown London, we hopped on the tube for home. Claire and Kaite and I then proceeded to stay up until 2AM with girly gossip and a neverending game of Trivial Pursuit. It was good times, but man was I tired today!

But anyways, actual life info aside, here it is, the point of this post, only three weeks late - my 12 of 12 for September. I am really going to have to get better at posting these! I've done a terrible job these past two months. (And this one is actually even later!) As I said before, I want to post these for completeness (and really, what does it matter when it goes up?) and so here it is, my 12th 12 of 12 in a row! A full year. Yay me. And (as I was just thinking the other day) with my new house and new commute and all, it's perfect timing to shake up my weekday 12 of 12's a bit. The old trip back and forth to Awesome Manor was getting a bit stale. :)

What's that you say? I haven't blogged about the move at all so you have no idea what I'm talking about. Riiiight. Actual updates is the next step, but at least I got this up. I'm not even unpacked yet. Baby steps people!

I must warn people that there are pictures of us standing in a giant glass box off the side of a building under here. So, um, no one freak out! It turns out okay. (No one was harmed in the taking of these pictures...) )

So that's Chicago! Or one day of it anyhow. I have tons of pics from my whole USA trip that I really should get up onto Facebook at least, but I think we all know me well enough to despair of that ever happening. Right now all I'm hoping for is to have my room unpacked and cleared up and decorated before Nano descends. Because there goes November! And then it's Christmas, and then it's 2010. Ah geez. Also, after all my complaints about going to bed late last night, look what time it is now. Whoops.
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
Oh geez this is so insanely late. I wouldn't bother putting it up, except that 1) I did take the pictures and 2) I don't want to break my streak of 12 of 12's. Next month will be my last one for a full year, so that would suck not to get this up. So here you go...

Unfortunately a very uninspired day. )
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
It's super late, and I'm not yet caught up on my sleep from my trip, but if I don't do this now I may never do it, so I've decided to just suck it up and post my 12 of 12. Claire is over, so she's writing for NanoJuMo, thus we can sit here and work together. Helen just left - we're on day two of our Harry Potter movie marathon. They met me at Awesome Manor once I got home from the airport last night, and we did 1 & 2. Then tonight it was 3 & 4, and tomorrow we'll watch 5 just before going off to see 6 at the cinema! Yay! Of course if the UK cinemas were doing midnight showings I would be in the 6th film RIGHT NOW, but I'm trying not to dwell on that.

Right. So my 12 this month is of the EXIT music festival in Serbia (http://eng.exitfest.org/) which I was at from Thurs-Mon this past weekend. I had tons of pictures, although to be honest a lot of them were pretty bad since the music takes place mostly at night and my camera didn't cope too well. It makes for an interesting timeline for the 12 though, as you can see from the timestamps.

12 of 12: June 2009

I'm in the midst of packing, etc because I leave in about two hours, but I wanted to post this before I'm off. From what Kathleen said, there won't be many chances for me to be online while I'm gone.

No times or anything because I'm in a bit of a hurry. )

Pretty nice Friday overall! And now, a couple weeks hiatus while I'm on holiday. See you all on the other side!!
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
This was perhaps not the most inspired day, picture-wise, but a relaxing one because after work I just went home and slept. When you tell people something like that, they say "well, you must have needed it!" and usually I scoff, but this was one of those days when I think I actually did need it. Long weekend helping with carnivals and such. :) The worst thing about sleeping so long is that I completely missed the Eurovision semi-final. SUCKAGE! My dad even called me to remind me that it was on, but I guess my phone was still on silent from work. Add that to the fact that I have a party to go to on Sat night (sorry [livejournal.com profile] ladyvivien!) and I'm definitely not doing well with Eurovision watching this year. I am trying not to be too depressed about this fact.

There are THREE Nimbus photos in here - aren't you excited?! (ETA: And also my new haircut for those who wanted to see it.) )

And that's it people! See you next month.
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
OMG this is so insanely late. Um…blame the week of taxes! I haven’t had time, really I haven’t. But at least I took the pics. And it was not only a weekend but also a holiday, so good times. I was in Norfolk at my parents’ house, and Nimbus came along.

Usually when I do this I write notes as I do the html and then I go back and put proper descriptions in. But frankly, it’s 2AM, everyone else has gone to bed and we just got back from a Andy’s band’s gig, so I kind of can’t be bothered. I did most of this earlier today anyhow, so at this point I just want to get it up. I think you can tell what everything is from my notes, and I tend to go overboard on the info so a minimalist month is probably a good thing.

jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
This 12th was the runup to Rach’s bday, which was the next day, so there were various types of preparations going on. Also, Kaite and Claire came over for dinner, baking and party prep. Somehow Claire didn’t make the picture cut, because the only ones I had of her (helping with my costume) were after midnight. Next time!

Here we are again, second one of the year. Getting this up on the 13th and all, so that’s very impressive. (To me only, probably.) It’s Friday too, and I’m off home any second. Well, off to meet Debi for dinner anyway. [Ok this is no longer accurate since I am back home now from dinner, sitting on Seb's bed watching Gilmore Girls. But oh well.]

This was Trevor’s last day in the UK, so I took work off. I think that probably made for a more exciting 12 of 12 then it would have been otherwise. )

Okay, so it’s a little heavier on the cat pics than I would like, but it’s really hard to weed those out! This 12 of 12 is dedicated to my brother, who at this very moment is winging his way back to Atlanta. Curses!
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
Hey look! It's the 18th and I'm finally posting my 12 of 12. I guess it doesn't matter as long as all the pics were taken on the right day? Anyway, here goes...

Post 12 pics of your day, and then link back to Chad, who started it all! Like pretty much everyone else, I need to put in a small note to him this month, because he’s having a rough time of it. Here’s hoping the all clear and the radiation are the beginning of a good turn of events.

I kind of love how my 12 of 12’s always start the night before. )
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
ETA: Posted! And I'm at Adina's - we're chatting and stuff. She picked me up 12:15 - so that's only about 4 hours after I was supposed to be there.

Hmm. So I'm currently on a plane en-route to New Jersey, typing this up in Word so I can post it when I get to [livejournal.com profile] adinarj's house. (Hi Adina!) From Heathrow I had to fly through Chicago to get to New Jersey - thank you AA - because flight plans are stupid. Here's my day so far (all in GMT):

stay up all night packing
7 AM - leave house
1015 AM - board plane, fall asleep
1130ish AM - eat, fall asleep again
6:30 PM - wake up realising they are serving food again, eat
7:15 PM - land

I missed the entire flight! I usually nap, but that complete and total knock-out was impressive even for me. It was a good thing though, because when I woke up I realised that my mini-TV didn't work. So I dodged that disappointment. I don't even know what movies they showed. Weird. Okay, then...

7:30 PM - customs, security, etc
[my next flight was scheduled to leave at 2:40 which would be 8:40 PM, but it was delayed)
8:15 PM - get to gate
9:45 PM - board
12:25 AM - take off
So yes, we sat on the tarmac for almost three hours, taxi-ing occasionally. Pretty much nothing more annoying than that. I got a lot of journal writing done. I really should have been doing some hand-written Nano, but I have a hard time making myself do it off of the computer.

BLECH. With all these delays I feel like the universe doesn't want me to meet Adina! But we will not be denied! GG meetings WILL HAPPEN! Ok, now enough complaining and onto the fun stuff. 12 of 12 for November!! First the rules:

I was thinking that this would have been more exciting if I had flown out on the 12th, but really who wants airport pictures when you can have kitten ones? )

As per the usual, I completely forgot about 12 of 12. I've been meaning to start doing it, and every time I seem to remember too late. Luckily, despite it being almost 8PM by the time I remembered, I already had some pics taken, since our house warming party wrapped up around 5:30AM. (Success!!) Also, that night I went out with Elizabeth ([livejournal.com profile] outforawalk) and friends (visiters to London) so I actually still had some things to take photos of. Thus, my first actual 12 of 12, albeit with a large middle of the day gap. (Although honestly, I slept until about 1, so that's a bunch of time right there!)

So um, rules - you post 12 pics of your day, and then link back to Chad, who started it all!

Here goes... )

Not the most illustrious start, but at least I managed to do it, which is more than I can say for the past few months! Here's hoping next time I remember in the AM...

Bonus points to whoever can identify the two karaoke songs that you can see from the lyrics!
