You ever get that feeling when you don't know if you want to laugh or cry but it's not a bad thing?

Why )

I am going to hurt this pc soon.

It's the family pc. It was made by a bloke the milkman knew. It's old, and it's senile, and it's being kept going by the pc equivalent of duct tape and hope.

For the life of me, I do not know why. We have a new pc, still in it's box, waiting for the files from this one to be transferred to it and for this one to be taken down so it can replace it.

Dad was waiting for mum to finish some work on it from wednesday, before attempting the transfer yesterday. He didn't do it. Mum had actually finished said work. On wednesday. Neither of them had actually spoken to the other about this.

I just want to set fire to the thrice-bedamned thing and have done with it.

So, I have joined twitter. Same username as one here, if anyone cares to wander along and nosy.

However, one of the (inevitable) profile things is a picture. And I hate most of the pictures of me in existance, so this caused me to glower at the screen for a while before simply ignoring the issue.

It did get me thinking though. I'm likely to end up using my most recent Fbook profile pic, which I have (probably) uploaded under the cut. If you bother looking at it, can you answer the question at the bottom?

Click for pic )

Simple question: what are the first, physical, impressions of me that you can get from this picture? Age, gender, build/height/weight, fashion/style, anything. Just your first impressions, please? If you know me in RL, ignore what you know already about me. :)

Today, I got given my week's notice.

Apparently they have to many temps for the amount of work available (wtf, I'm working a report with several thousand accounts on it!) and they chose one of us at random to go.

So, next friday, it's very much a case of: 'Happy birthday. You're fired.'

It's not even redundancy, as I'm a temp. They're simply terminating my contract.

So, parents are out at a comedy gig. Dog is doing her comatose thing. I'm alone in the house.

And today's freaking myself the fuck out image is bird based.

Specifically, walking past open doorways that lead into darkened rooms, and half-expecting to see a raven-based monstrosity leering at me from the ceiling, fang-filled beak open in silent laughter before it launches itself in a blur of blood-splattered tattered feathers, all wrong angles and ragged edges.

Brrrr. -shivers-

I've been baking today, and I've just looked at my hands and realised - it's been that long since I've really made anything that I've completely lost the small calluses that had built up from the wooden spoon.

This makes me sadder than it probably should. I hate this overwhelming lethargy, the one that results in me sitting for hours in front of the computer doing absolutely fuck all because it's easy, rather than other things that I'd probably enjoy more.

I've been to various gigs before, and I've enjoyed them.


Until now, I have never been to a gig where from the very first song the band has been all I can see, all I can hear.

Runrig? Are made of so many kinds of awesome and amazing I can't describe them. I just want to sit here, spluttering and raving and waving my arms at the amazingness of it all.

The minute they come back, I'm going again.

So, last week could pretty much be summed up with the words 'snot' and 'apathy'.

Yeah. Not pleasant.

Also, regarding the hogging of the pc I get accused of?

Cut for brassed-off ranting )

I hate that effing car so much.

I'd really rather not drive.

Not a happy end to a good weekend.

Ok, on friday the virus software on the pc suicided, and the internet connection followed yesterday. So, stuff will be responded to eventually, but I'm now reliant on our library for internet and the term 'slow'? Is just slightly applicable.

Our work pcs are faster, but block anything useful.

Am going to go beat dad until he fixes the problem. :)

Ok, so our pc has been playing up for the past few days in various ways. On friday, the email broke.

It's still not fixed, and now has security software issues.

Basically, any comments, emails, etc will be unresponded to for some time as weekends? The only time in the week lately I've not been dead from fucking up my sleep patterns.

Claire, I'm especially sorry about the utter fail regarding emails. :(

I got complimented on my lovely voice at work today.

It was rather odd, especially the bit about if fairies existed they'd sound like me.

Am slightly weirded out, in a really flattered way.

So Merlin North meetup was today.


Large amounts of awesome. So much talking, laughing, fun! :D

Even if I can't remember half the names of the people there today, I have happy memories of the rest.

Ok, so over the past few months I've lost some weight.

This is good.

What is not good, is the way my fingers have gone down at least one ring size.
I wear two thumb rings, one of which is now falling-off too big.

It's stainless steel. Which apparently you can't get resized.

This is somehow more upsetting than I'd've thought.

I just got spam email inviting me to 'get a free hard on'.

I didn't know they normally charged for such things. Is there a payment slot supplied?

I just passed my driving test.

Only one minor fault.

In ours?

We have rabid attack pasta.

No, seriously. Attack pasta.
