Basically it's been a pretty awesome two weeks. My trip feels a million miles away, but it was awesome too. I doubt I'll manage to get any more of a synopsis up at the rate I'm going, but hopefully I'll manage to put up pics soon. I'm such a bum! Anyway, I'll link it on here once I get to it.

I'm taking a late lunch here, so on the very bright side I now only have a few hours of work left. Then [ profile] lazyclaire and I are doing dinner at ours as a goodbye before she goes to France for three weeks. Tomorrow I'm off to Devon for the weekend for a final house goodbye & bonding weekend since Nick and Julie are going to the USA FOR GOOD on Monday. :( Next up: figuring out new tenants (currently we have subletters) and sorting out renewing the lease. Fun!

I've had an extremely productive week, which would probably explain why the last time I posted was last Thursday. I meant to do a quick post on Mon/Tue detailing the weekend, and I never even got around to that.

I'm sitting here right now sorting computer files and watching "Can't Hardly Wait" which just happened to be on. I haven't seen this movie in a million years, and I'm getting shocked by all the people I recognize in it, most of whom are in totally random tiny parts. It's so weird. I kept seeing people, so I went to the IMDB page and was just blown away. Seriously, apart from the obvious main characters, you've got: Sean Patrick Thomas, Freddy Rodríguez, Donald Faison, Jaime Pressly, Nicole Bilderback, Jason Segel, Clea DuVall, Leslie Grossman, Eric Balfour, Selma Blair, Sara Rue, Amber Benson, Melissa Joan Hart, Breckin Meyer, and Liv Tyler. I mean, I saw a five second glimpse of Amber Benson - she's listed as "Stephanie, Stoned, Banana-holding Girl (scenes deleted)"! Craziness.

ANYWAY, as I said, I've been seriously productive, even today. This Week (not very exciting except for the bit about the murder). )

As for Easter weekend, [ profile] basilm went with me to my parents’ house. The snow in the forest was beautiful. )

Holy crap I’ve been writing this entry forever. I think I started around 4PM and it’s now almost 4AM. I’ve just been writing it bit by bit as I did everything else. And the end result is BORING. Seriously, I wouldn’t advise actually reading it! :)

Hmm, just two tiny other little notes. Today I saw a preview on TV for Pathology, so it looks like it might have widescreen release here. Interesting. Also, the pilot season has come to the UK. Premiering within recent weeks or coming soon: Gossip Girl, Pushing Daisies, Chuck, Dirty Sexy Money and Mad Men. I’ve seen the first three, but I might try and watch the other two. We’ll see.

Okay, perhaps it is now time for bed?

ETA: CRAPOLA!! [ profile] basilm has just reminded me that the clocks go forward tonight. Dang it! Stupid daylight savings time. That means it's actually almost 5AM.

ETA (#2): No, it's just 4AM. (sheepish) I guess my computer auto-updated and I didn't notice.

The best part of today was the write-in, where I finally got started again after my long desert of doing nothing.  I'm still massively behind, but at least I'm moving forward.  I have no vision of whether it's any good now, but words are going on the page, so that's something.  A few new people at the write-in that I hadn't met, also it was at Starbucks instead of the BL, so that was interesting.  A bit noisier, and very very crowded. No [profile] basilm, but [profile] teaatsix was there, so yay!  Went to the pub afterwards, natch.  Tomorrow it's at an undecided location, so that's weird.  And then Thurs back to the BL, thank goodness.

Seriously though, today sucked.  I think it was inevitable since it was a catch-up day at work and I was exhausted from the weekend.  Erin came on Friday morning and she came by the office for lunch.  There were only four of us there so we ordered out pizza.  I don't think I got a thing done after that point.  And then Monday was a holiday, so today it all came crashing down on me.  I meant to leave work for the write-in at 5:00, but we got a last minute call (read: demand) from the US at 4:45, so I ended up not being able to leave until after 6.  Precious writing time missed, people!

Anyhow, since I already started listing it on facebook, here are the things we did (touristy I mean) this weekend.  I call this Jenn's very very cheap tour of London - we only spent money on necessities - food, drink, transport and the theatre!

Work was brutal and then here I am up at almost 2AM again.  But the virtual season went up tonight at 1AM (read it HERE!) and so I always feel like I have to stay up to make a few posts (TWoP and facebook) and just be sure everything goes off alright.

I was going to write more tonight but that didn't happen.  I think I'm going to be lazy and watch Heroes instead.  And no, if you're asking, I haven't packed yet for my trip - I leave on Friday morning.

Happy moving day to [profile] adinarj !!

1.  Tonight a few friends and I went to the Globe Theatre to see Loves Labours Lost.  I can't believe I've never done that before.  I've been on the tour (way back when they first re-built it) but never to a show.  It was so fun!  The play was really great, and just the whole atmosphere of it was cool.  Plus, it was only £5 because we did the standing tickets.  We were groundlings!  That kind of added to the whole feel of it, but man did my feet hurt after three hours standing!  (Especially after a full day at work.)  During intermission we actually all sat down in the dirt, and we weren't the only ones.  I don't know what company does the Globe (I'm trying to remember if they actually have an in-house company) but it was very traditionally done.  I don't know either if they ever do adapted Shakespeare.  It might be the point of the experience to do it the way they would in his day (although they used women) and the whole bawdy wink-wink style was very fun.  So full thumbs up for the whole experience.  I'll definitely go again.

2.  I watched the new episode of Heroes but I don't feel ready to comment yet.  I think I need to watch it over, because right now I'm just "wow!" and incredulous noises.  Seriously.  THIS SHOW!

3.  I took a Heroes personality test and got Eden.  I'm pretty happy about that because I think she's way cool.

4.  New promo for the virtual season.  (I'm actually really having fun writing these!  It's pretty much the only "creative" thing I'm doing for the season since the brainstorming part is now over.  Otherwise it's all editing and emailing and organisation.  Which is all fun too, but still...)

Episode 8.03 : Whoa,  Nellie!

Next week on Gilmore Girls...  A visit from April leads to tension between Luke and Lorelai, Sookie and Michel come to blows at the inn, and Emily and Richard vent to Lorelai about their lack of contact from Rory.  But their granddaughter has other things on her mind -- like an unhappy editor, an unfriendly colleague, and an unexpected twist in a new friendship.  Whoa, Nellie!

It will air Tuesday, October 9th, 8PM EST.
