Why yes, it is the 25th and I'm just now posting my pics from the 12th. But look on the bright side, at least I'm posting them (!) unlike Jan & March (when I took pics but didn't post) or Feb & April, when I didn't take pics at all. Small steps people. If you care to see the Flickr sets for those two months, sans commentary, then here they are: January (some experiments with close up shots although I don't have a macro lens) and March (mostly my dad in hospital that I was documenting to send to my bro).

SO...12 of 12! AGAIN! FINALLY! Here's hoping this re-starts the trend.

That's it! Pretty lovely day overall, and sheer luck that it ended up being the 12th. The next few months look good for it too, but once it gets back to falling work days I'm not sure what I'll do. It's easy to feel uninspired on a work day after doing it for over a year. There's only so much of my commute I can document, you know?!

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...

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.

I should be doing many many things, and if I am on LJ I should be writing a proper entry since I haven’t in so long, but instead I’m going to fill out this survey that I just snagged from [livejournal.com profile] ladyvivien. You know, just because I can.

This reminds me of those surveys that used to get passed around via email. )

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...

I have a half-written post with reactions from all 6 Harry Potter movies (yeah...I know) that I will hopefully post tonight. (In general I was happy with HP6 but it had some ~very serious~ plot/canon issues.) But for now, grabbed from several people on my flist, MEME!

Which American accent do you have?

Neutral

You're not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.

I think that's interesting, although not surprising. It just underscores my belief that I have the most neutral normal US accent you could have - worn down from growing up over here and meeting people from all over the US. I am now tempted to mail it to my bro and see if he gets the same result.

Also, I am having dinner tonight with my best friend from MIDDLE SCHOOL and her husband, who are visiting London this week. I have not seen this girl in over ten years, although we have kept vaguely in touch. We shall see.
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.

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.

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.]

Couchsurfers and Boardgames and Gilmores, oh my! )
jenepel: (VM: Veronica with camera)
So here's one I've had sitting half finished in a google doc for like a month now. Nothing like housecleaning, huh?

I know it's mid-Feb but I'm putting it up anyways because I like things recorded for posterity! It should be the best of the 12 of 12, but I only started in October, so for the rest of those months I just picked one picture from what I had in my files. It comes off a bit as an album of the traveling I did, but ah well. I tried to stick in some shots of things as well as people. My first inclination is to have all people pictures, but I think non-people ones are also interesting and change it up a bit.

2008 in full colour glory! )

I actually can't believe I didn't finish this up earlier. It was almost done, so I just had to tweak a few things really quickly. Typical! Life has gotten semi-busy again, in a social way. As in, I actually have things going on after work and stuff, which is nice but makes me scramble. I'm having dinner with a few people this week and next who I haven't seen for months, so that's great too. And my bday is in a week (next Tues) so I'm trying to plan stuff for the weekend after. I mean I have a half plan but I need to see if we need reservations and such. Also, we're diving back into couchsurfing again, so I updated my profile last week. We have two girls coming tonight for about four days, and then a maybe for a guy next week. I'm kind of excited to begin all that again. And yet, despite all that excitement, I've been seriously up and down lately. I'm not sure what's up with the constant moodiness, but I'm really ready to stop feeling so crappy and down on myself. For now, I'm blaming it on the weather and time of year.

We're on hiatus for the virtual season and I didn't even realise it! That's crazy, because usually I seem to be counting down to it. So maybe that's a sign that I'm feeling more in control of it all? I feel good about deadline reminders, and better about promos, and I finally sent out my big email, which was a bit anti-climatic. So for once there is nothing hanging over me there, which is great.

I've been listening to nothing but country music for the last week because [livejournal.com profile] insanityjones keeps making me mix CD's. It's been pretty great actually, rediscovering some songs from my childhood and then also hearing a bunch of brand new ones. I've subjected my housemates to some of it too, so that makes me happy.

Okay back to work...
jenepel: (Pratchett: [quote] sleepless times)
Well I'm in Norfolk at my parents and of course am the only one still awake, so I have some time to kill. Thus I finally got around to filling these out - more for my record keeping then anything else. Two end-of-year memes:

In this first one I deleted the questions I couldn't be bothered to answer, so that's why there are numbers missing.

meme the first )

Aw, this is my first full year of LJ! So I had to do the same meme that I did last year and snag the first few lines from each month's first entry...

meme the second )

Man that was a lot of typing! I wonder who actually made it through that. Medals all round.

I did this AGES ago when [livejournal.com profile] basilm first posted it, but then I lost where I saved the mosaic. Since I cleaned out all of my computer files this weekend (while we were watching hours of Buffy!) I found it. So here you go…

Instructions:
a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search. (Put it on “most interesting” for the best results.)
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker.
d. Post the result in your journal.

I mock you with my monkey pants. )

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!
