Yes, I'm bored at work

March 5th, 2012 (07:07 pm)

To my two favourite stalkers: I forgot to mention last night that I once wrote a Giles spanking Faith in the library fic.... Unfortunately, I lost it in a hard drive crash.

To everyone else: I should write more/post more in general. Y/N?

Last time I posted was back in August? Ouch.

Will try to do better.

Writerconuk bound! Maybe.

You know, I've kinda gotten used to seeing buses pull away from the bus stops just as I get there, but this is the first time I've seen it happen to me with a train.

May be a tad late arriving at writerconuk.

Yeah. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that LJ goes down as I come back to it. Uh-huh.

Moving on, only one week to writerconuk! Looking forward to running into lots of old friends and generally being able to geek out over various fandom related things while being the dominant social group in the room. Yes, this time we get to stare scornfully at the 'norms' in the corner of the bar. ;)

*pokes LJ cautiously* Seems okay at the moment. kazzy_cee linked to an interesting post here about the reasons behind the problems. Though, must admit I'm seriously wondering about possibly getting on Dreamwidth, and cross-posting. Anyone know the procedures there?

Other than that, I'm slowly trying to crawl back to both LJ and Facebook. Think I've been isloating myself too long, and I need to get back out there.

Okay, finally got everything sorted out for writerconuk (apart from y'know, minor little details, like actually booking train tickets).

So, who else is going, and will there be singing this year?

Good news

June 14th, 2011 (10:35 am)

Well, it's taken me over four weeks now of trying to book time off work, but I can now confirm that I will be heading to writerconuk this year! Woot!

(They're getting really crap at booking days/weeks off now. Yes, you may well be short-staffed but perhaps you shouldn't have cut staffing levels down to the bone, hmm? When we're at the stage when one extra person calling in sick causes chaos and massive shuffling around of people, you have a problem.)

(PS - After about four weeks of waiting to hear whether I could get the writerconuk weekend off, and bothering my manager and his manager (who authorises all the leave for the entire shift), I did an end run around to the Duties room, got them to print out a copy of my leave for the year and discovered that the right days off were listed. *head-desk*)

So curiouswombat you need be curious no more. *grin* darkhavens? Fancy sharing a train own again? We shall sit there and cry over Secret Six together...

The big DC changes

June 7th, 2011 (09:39 am)

Most people already know this but DC comics, home of such classic superheroes as Batman, Superman and Wonder Wonder, is relaunching all its titles in September all with new issues 1's and with brand new creative teams.

This post is basically my attempt to keep track of all 52 new books as the info slowly leaks out.

Probably only of interest to comics fansCollapse )

I had no idea Sarah Michelle Gellar had a new tv show coming up. Looks quite interesting...

Starting in September from what I hear.
