So I finally finished updating my books list for this year. I even added movies this time around, just for fun. I figure I'll hopefully be seeing more movies because of the Cineworld Unlimited thing. I actually had the books on my computer already, but I hadn't done the coding and etc to set it up. The movies I kind of had to guess on, so I probably forgot some, but oh well. For the books, you can totally tell that I've been raiding my mom's (school) library for new books - I read a ton of those just when I was home when my dad was sick.

And hey, it's only the end of March, so why not now? When I should be asleep. Or doing taxes. Or something. On the bright side I did manage to put another load of laundry in. Go me! *sarcasm*

Tomorrow is the 2nd kick-off for Script Frenzy. [livejournal.com profile] lazyclaire and I just spent about an hour picking out new movie quotes (and we did some TV ones this time too) in case we get repeats. And hey, [livejournal.com profile] silly_cleo, this time you can play! I mean, if you're coming again. Are you?

Argh, I've got to go to bed b/c it's leaning on 3 now, since I've been doing other things while I've had this open. Hopefully tomorrow I'll finish my epic Adam post - I need to get it up before SF and definitely before this weekend!

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.

Post 12 pics of your day, and then link back to Chad, who started it all!

1) ALL PHOTOS MUST BE TAKEN ON THE 12TH OF EACH MONTH.

2) After you post your pictures onto a webpage of your choice (Livejournal, typepad, MySpace, Flickr, etc...) please post the TIME, LOCATION, and A SMALL COMMENT on the pic.

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.

I'm at work, frantically trying to finish up a last few things. (I am supposed to be gone now!) Trev is at my house, waiting, and then we're getting on a train to my parents' house. I cannot wait to be there instead of here. Blah. Just a few things.

But I know how I get over internet once I get to their house. I may or may not bother to do things like check LJ. So I figured I would get on here and have a last stab at a post. There are so many things I tried to write about this last month or so since I got back from my trip and just never got to. Life is insane, and that's good I guess, but it definitely means stuff fell to the wayside. I pulled an all-nighter last night (I'm an idiot) because my room was terrible and I just had to do something about it. But now it's clean, laundry is done, presents are bought and wrapped and I am ALMOST done enough with work to be able to drop it all and go to Norfolk.

Happy Christmas or general holidays or just end of the year to everyone. Love you all!!

Meme!

Yeah I don't really know why I'm up at 8AM on a Sunday. It unusual for me, at least. We were out last night and I crashed as soon as we got home even though I slept most of Saturday away. So then of course I woke up around 5AM and couldn't go back to sleep. I kinda plan to go back to bed after this though, because I'm still tired.

I totally love this itunes meme, which (on my flist) was first done by [livejournal.com profile] insanityjones.

Put iTunes on shuffle, take the first line from the first 20 songs and use them to make a poem. Use the first line of the 21st song as the title.

If I could escape, I would

Well this storm that I have swallowed isn't going down so well.
My lovey-dovey baby, i boo-hoo-hoo for you
Irish blood, English heart, this I'm made of
You must be wondering how the boy next door turned out
You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I'm taking a break because I'm losing it again
There's a fine fine line, between a lover and a friend
If you see me walking down the street and I start to cry
Cross the street, from your storefront cemetery

Won't somebody come along and teach me how to keep it alive?
Hey, could you stand another drink, I'm better when I don't think
Come on closer, I wanna show you
It's hard enough to notice, but harder still to react
Well the sun grew dim and the night grew tall

I'm free, I am free
I see, drifting through my veins
Oh sister my dear, I wish that you were here
When you're near me I have no fear
I need a place where I can go


I think the second verse works really well. And look at the middle lines of the last one too. Very cool how things randomly go together like that.

Once again proving I am not actually an adult person, I got very little sleep last night. We had a chat for the Virtual Season that went from 2AM-5:30AM (my time) and then I was afraid to properly go to sleep, so I alternately napped and read, lights blazing. On the positive side, it was a very productive chat, so at least my sleep was donated to a good cause. Either way, I'm now at work, trying very hard to be productive here as well. I've already had a cup of coffee - and I DO NOT drink coffee. The energy of that and of staying up all night will last for a while, but I know I'll be fading around mid-day. Hopefully I can leave early since I got in early.

Hmmm. So this entry is mostly just because writing it is keeping me more awake then working on taxes. I would regale you all with stories of my weekend, but really there isn't much to say except that I didn't get as much done as I meant to (shocker!) so that's annoying. [Ha! I said I didn't have much to say and then blathered on for many paragraphs. Oh well.]

Travel plans and movies and even some pictures! )Okay, I should actually get some work done. This turned out to be a more marathon entry then I expected. But I'm SO TIRED and taxes are not helping! Also, I must have pulled a muscle or something this weekend, because I've had this pain in the lower left side of my back for like two days now. It hurts the most when I sit a long time - when I got out of the movies yesterday it was throbbing - and so sitting here at my desk is not feeling so good. I don't think there's much to be done though, other than hope it goes away soon. Ah well, just one more thing! Happy Monday everyone.

ETA: Wow, I have a tag for sleep. I did not remember that. It should be a tag for lack of sleep! Maybe I'll make one - or change it.

[NOTE: My H key only works if I press down hard and stop to actually notice it.  While typing fast I do not plan to do that, so please ignore any missing H's in the following message.]

I went to the Apple store on Regent street today.  I don't know wy I even bothered taking my computer since tey are always insanely busy and it's impossible to get an appointment.  Here's me: "treacle! on my keyboard!" *freaks out*.  Here's him: "we don't have appointments til Wed. *looks unconcerned*.  Riiight.  So I have an appointment at the "genius bar" (heh) on Wed night after work.  They better but fix it good.

I came home from work and napped, mostly because I pulled on all-nighter Sunday night due to the fact that my sleeping was off whack from my weekend.  This is the second week in a row I have done that.  It does not make Monday work fun.  And ten I woke up now (2:30AM) and decided to actually get a few things done instead of going straigt back to sleep.  I am oever, looking forward to the three hours of sleep before work that I am going to get as soon as I finish this entry.  Yay.

I had two strange dreams, both of which were ridiculously grounded in real life:

1.  I dreamed I had decided to go back to te US for graduate scool (someting I have considered at times, althoug not at the moment).  I must have just gotten there and I totally freaked out.  I was all "but I miss London!  I must go back to London!  That is where I belong!" and they wouldn't let me leave.  I had already signed a lease and they wouldn't give me all my tuition money back and everything was *permanent* and there was a whole bunch of sheer panic on my side.  So that's interesting.  I guess I want to stay here for now.  :)  Wow, subconscious, be a little *subtle* why don't you?

2.  Very weird and disjointed Christmas shopping dream where I wandered Oxford street and it just seemed to get longer and busier every second (not unlike the real thing).  There was lots of singing but I couldn't tell where it came from.  This is funny because literally EVERY DAY after work I do this:
*get out of work and walk to the edge of Oxford street*
Think: wow, I really need to buy a few gifts.  I have nothing ready.
*
stare at crazy crowds of people and scary glitzy window decor*
Think: maybe tomorrow?
*get on bus and go home instead*
Yeah, it's not getting any shopping done but it's my routine and I like it!

And on that note, I am off to bed!  I really wish I would upload my icons.  I have all these in mind that I plan to upload and am not getting to use yet.  Night all.

[EDIT:  CRAP!  Just realised I didn't get the confirm email about my appointment that I was supposed to get from te Mac store.  Now I'm gonna have to look into that and bug people tomorrow.]
jenepel: (Piz_I want to die)
It's 3am, I have to leave for the airport at 8am tomorrow, and I just can't go to bed yet b/c I still have too much to do.  (Okay yes, I shouldn't be writing this - shut up.)  I'm ready for the trip itself, it's just that the day after I get back I have to move, and I'm not ready for THAT.  I have stuff (and paperwork) all over my room and my bed.  Nothing is organised enough, nothing is ready.  I'm going a little crazy here.  I know I don't have to move everything in this one day, but I do need to do a significant part of it, and I need everything ready for my first week at the new job.  Time just completely got away from me (as it always does).

Okay, back to work for real so I can actually try and get some sleep tonight.  It's a two hour drive; I really need to be at least somewhat cognizant.

I just typed out this entire entry and then it disappeared when I posted, so you are now getting the abridged version.  Losing it did not help to improve my mood.

Suffice to say I have been in a royally bad mood for the past day or so - a combo of RL and online life.  I don't really want to go into it, but I've been worrying about a lot of crap I basically have no control over.  It's stupid.

Part of the problem is lack of sleep I think.  This weekend I went almost nocturnal - I went to bed at 7AM Sat morning and at 8AM on Sun then got up about four hours later to do whatever (Katy's goodbye party, etc).  Then last night I got home late from work, made a banana pudding for the meeting today (yum) and then did some work on the computer.  Then I fell asleep on the couch around 11:30 - I hate it when I do that.  I woke up around 4:30, totally and completely wide awake.  I spent about 10 mins on the computer and then about an hour lying in bed worrying about everything.  Then I gave it up and found a book to read.  When I finished it, it was 7 and I had to get up for work in about 20 mins.  So I snoozed, then got up and went to work.  I actually haven't freaked out again yet - I'm feeling curiously zen, but that could be the sleep deprivation, or maybe having to type the same (shortened) entry twice.  Just be glad you didn't have to read the long one!

Oh, btw the answer to Scott's joke: Because his horn didn't work.  (HAH!)

My sleeping habits recently have been worse than usual.  (And that's hard, because they are always bad.)  I actually pulled an all-nighter the night before last.  And it was for no apparent reason other than I just didn't feel like going to sleep.  I was working on the freelance wp stuff and I just kept working on it (checking Whimsy in between) and then suddenly it was 7AM and time to get ready to go to work.  Seriously, I am just really not a proper grown-up.  And yes, I know it's bad for my body, and that it's taking years off my life, etc etc every other thing anyone has ever told me about my crappy sleep habits.  But I really can't (don't want to?) help it.  I love to stay up late.

And so it is now 4AM, I have to work tomorrow, and I'm on the computer watching yesterday's Heroes, typing this, checking Whimsy, reading fanfic and doing anything else I possibly can to waste a little time.  Joy.

I actually have to work at school tomorrow, not the office.  They needed someone in the library, so I traded my office days to fit it.  I am going to miss this "flexible schedule" when I start the new job next month.  (3.5 weeks and counting...)  I also haven't got a move-in date for the new house.  I so hate to move.  Not looking forward to boxing up crap and figuring out how to drive it all there.  But I am excited about the move and life change.  All that is good.

A couple things about recent TV watching:

Everwood )

Heroes )

So it's 5AM now and I've had this entry open for ages.  Perhaps I should try and get my two hours of sleep before I have to get up?  At least I will have kids to deal with all day tomorrow, so that ought to keep me awake!  Here's hoping my four alarm clocks actually wake me up...
