I haven't been here for a while because when I wrote my last entry I'd actually been planning to say more but was having trouble putting my thoughts into words and it was so frustrating that I decided to just post my 10,000 steps pic and avoid LJ for a week. Because that's the sensible and mature way to handle things.

I did consider trying to write about it now, but I think it best to just draw a line under it and move on. So, moving on...

Last night I went to Emma's for her second hen party; this time it was an old school style sleepover with a superhero theme. I dressed up as Supergirl and took along my comic book shoes, which people seemed rather impressed by. Emma suggested I wear them to her actual wedding (which will also have a superhero theme) but I'm not sure I can wear heels that high for that long!

It was a nice evening, not least because all seven of us have known each other for years now, having gone to the same secondary school, and I love that we're still friends even after all these years. But at the same time it's terrifying to realise exactly how many years it has been. (FIFTEEN! We left school FIFTEEN YEARS AGO!)

This morning, after everyone else had gone, Emma and I continued the old school sleepover tradition of finishing off the leftover chocolate for breakfast. I mentioned wanting to watch Agent Carter so we found an episode. Unfortunately it was the sixth episode so Emma had to keep telling me who people were, but it was good. And I really must get round to actually watching it from the beginning!

And, here, have some pictures of me as Supergirl with my comic book shoes of awesome because I actually look pretty good:

Supergirl! )

Ack, it's cold. I just took Tilly out and I think it's actually freezing out there.

My Tardis skirt arrived today. It took nearly a month to get here and I'm actually really disappointed with it. It's more grey than blue and doesn't look very good at all. Oh well, live and learn I suppose. I'm just sad because it looked so good in the picture and I waited so long for it.

And now the cat is meowing at me. And sitting under my chair. Weird kitty.

My Doctor Hoo t-shirt arrived today. Now I'm just waiting for my Tardis skirt. Yay.

Early entry today because I'm about to head off to a house-warming. *insert jokes about fire and/or giant blankets here*

I have a Tardis impressionism t-shirt! It is awesome!

I'm also still really tired and I don't know why. That's less awesome.

I've just bought a Tardis skirt from Etsy. It's the third Doctor Who-related item of clothing that I've bought in the last month. Someone should probably take Paypal away from me while I still have money in my account.

A couple of weeks ago this post came across my dash on Tumblr and I was inspired to try my hand at making my own comic book heels.

I didn't have high hopes about my ability to produce anything even halfway decent but I'm actually really pleased with how they turned out:

As I said on Tumblr, I now need somewhere to show them off. Possibly another convention of some sort...

Wow, it's really pouring it down outside. The sky is grey and everything has a dark, autumnal feel. I love it.

I meant to make a Yay September post on Thursday but I had a crappy day at work and didn't feel in the mood. But now the rain is making me happy, so here we go.

September is awesome. It contains both my birthday and the first day of autumn, which is my absolute favourite season, and even though the majority of September is still technically summer it feels very autumnal. The evenings are drawing in, the leaves start turning, the temperature drops and the coats come out. Brilliant.

It's the time for board games and baking and staying inside while the rain beats down outside the window.

And, of course, the new television season starts, bringing so many wonderful things to watch on those dark, cosy evenings.

In conclusion, Yay for September!

=D

In honour of today's Rapture I am wearing my 'World's End' t-shirt from Edinburgh. Good pub, that.

Well, last night was fun. Although I feel very bleh today. I think I need to go do something that doesn't require any brainpower now. But first, as promised, my dresses roundup post.

No final Not a Dress this year because there weren't any guys who looked interesting enough to bother to post. :(
crystalcazzie: (Autumn Leaves)
So, yesterday was the first day of autumn. For weeks I've been looking forward to it and planned to make a post to celebrate but I still felt crappy so I didn't. I did change my journal theme to an autumnal one though, so yay for that!

Yesterday was also Bi Visibility day. I didn't wear purple myself because I have a uniform for work (annoyingly I used to have a purple shirt, but we got new red ones last week so I have to wear that now, otherwise I'd have been set.) I did have a fun time looking at various people and wondering if they were bi or just happened to be wearing purple that day, though.

Today I don't feel as bad as I have the past two days, so that's good. I'm very much looking forward to the weekend since I'm really hating on work at the moment. I'm not the only one though; lots of the people I work with have been talking about leaving. I really wish I knew what I wanted to do. At the moment I just want to find a job that doesn't involve direct interaction with customers, and that's kinda hard.

I see that the new TV season has started in America. It's making navigating my friends list and other sites a bit of a challenge as I try to work out which shows I'm going to have to watch online and which shows I don't mind being spoiled for (I've come to accept that there's no way to wait to watch shows when they air in the UK and remain unspoiled for them unless I stay off the internet completely and that's just not an option.)

I'm definitely going to be watching Bones online, but probably not until tomorrow so I'll just avoid most of LJ until then. I was always going to be watching that as soon as possible since it's my favourite show at the moment, but my decision has only been bolstered by the complete lack of any mention of season six or when it'll be airing on Sky One's website. It's like they've forgotten it exists. (Particularly annoying since as I'm writing this the TV has just shown an advert for Stargate Universe airing "just days after the States!")

BiCon 2010

I figure I should write this while it's still fresh in my mind. Sorry if it's a bit long and rambling!

BiCon! )

Meme time! Only took me about a week to do this one!

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Please post them in your journal and explain what they mean to you

I have two sets of words, because I am just that awesome. And it will soon become apparent that I did not take this meme entirely seriously...

Vegetarian

I’m a vegetarian, which means I don’t eat animals. And yes, that includes fish. Being vegetarian is the nice middle ground where I get to feel morally superior to meat eaters but can still look down on vegans and their crazy ways. (I am, of course, joking. I feel superior to everyone regardless of what they eat, in a John Crichton "Humans are superior!" way, complete with costume.)

Dog

I have a dog. Her name is Tilly, she’s deaf and she sheds her hair everywhere. Most of my clothes are now covered with white hairs. For some reason they shed much more than the black ones. I don’t know why, I’m sure there’s a reason. Perhaps I should look into it. Start up my own research project, get government funding then scrap the research and run off to Mexico, using the money to fund a life filled with sun, sand and margaritas. I’ll send for the rest of you when the government loses interest in finding me.

Degree

I have a degree. It is in History and Religious Studies and has been of no use whatsoever in my life since leaving university. I am currently doing a job that requires zero qualifications and could in fact be done by someone whose greatest academic achievement was a papier-mâché mask they made in first school. But on the bright side, I do work in a place where people make shop-wide announcements about chocolate chip biscuits. So it all evens out in the end.

Home

I have a home. It belongs to my parents but still, I live here, it’s my home. It’s a…bit of a mess, but that’s what happens when you’re from a family of hoarders. We’re all the same so there’s no one to challenge the status quo. And that is why my cause of death is almost certainly going to be “crushed under a pile of old junk.” I think that would be covered by the death benefit that I was offered at work the other day but didn’t take up (Yes, for the low low price of £2 a month my family would get £5000 in the event of my demise. Although not if my death was the result of suicide, war or exposure to nuclear radiation.)

Skirt

I wear skirts. A lot. I’ve always disliked trousers, although I do now have two pairs that I wear regularly. My jeanish ones, which are good for climbing and going to theme parks, and my work trousers. We have to wear trousers at work, which makes sense since it’s a very physical job and I climb a lot there too. Ladders, of course, not the racking. Climbing the racking would be naughty and I’m a good girl. Honest.

Canada

Canada is really big. It has bears and maple syrup and Mounties and Keith’s beer. Truly it is a wonderful place. Someday I hope to go back there and visit the places I missed out on before, and go back to the places that I loved. But not walk up that hill again. You know the one I mean, Mr Afterthought, THAT hill. And in case you were wondering, the answer is no. No, there will never be forgiveness for that hill.

Sleep

I assume this was put in cos I’m lazy. Thanks. I am a pig in the Chinese zodiac, which is supposed to mean that I’m lazy, so I guess it’s appropriate. Not that astrology really means anything. I’m also a Virgo, which means I should be exceptionally neat and, as we discussed three words up from this one, I most certainly am not. Plus I always remember what my physics teacher said – “Never confuse astronomy and astrology. Astronomy is science, astrology is bullshit.”

Animals

I like animals. I come from an animal-loving family and we’ve almost always had pets. I shall now list them for you in chronological order: Jess (cat), Breeze (dog), Lucky (hamster), Goldie (hamster), Dopey (hamster), Smartie (hamster), Minnie (rat), Evie (rat), Lily (rat), Rose (rat), Fury (cat) and Tilly (dog). Also McGee, who is technically the neighbours’ cat but spends most of his time here. His name is actually Gee, or possibly Ghee, but we changed it to McGee after the NCIS character.

Australia

Australia is a magical far-far away land that only exists in story books and daytime soap operas. In November my intrepid friend and I plan to attempt to visit this mythical place. If we survive the trip we will be sure to bring back evidence of the country’s existence. Perhaps in the form of a boomerang or cap that says “Pobody’s Nerfect.”

Mexico

One day we will call our families and say “Hey, yeah, we’re in Mexico.” That is the plan and hopefully it will happen without defrauding the government, but you know, if that’s what it takes. Personally I think we should have gone when the swine flu paranoia meant that everyone was avoiding the place and prices were really cheap. Plus it would have had the added advantage of making us look crazy. Or awesome. Or even crazy awesome. Mmm…crazy awesome.

Today was good. My friend and I saw the Sex and the City film at the cinema. It was simplistic and predictable and exactly the kind of mindless fun a Sex and the City film should be.

Then we went shopping and I spent too much money on clothes. But I hardly ever do that so I feel pretty good about it.

I have a new coat. It's so pretty.

I also tried the Cinnamon Latte and Brie and Cranberry Panini at Costa. Both were disappointing.

Three more applications done today.

Cambridge made me hand write the covering letter. I used a lined piece of paper as a guide and as I was going down it, using pen to make the lines clearer, I couldn't shake the feeling that I was back at Waverley Abbey. For some reason in the far right upstairs classroom which I was rarely in.

But moving on from that, allow me to present my favourite "What the Fuck are they Wearing?" Oscar Party moment:

Lauren Hutton

This is Lauren Hutton. I'd not actually heard of her before this but here she is at one of the Oscar parties, not looking very happy. I saw this and thought it a bit weird that she's not all dressed up like the other people.

Well...

Maybe this is why she looks so glum )

In other news, the latest Prison Break recap is very nearly done. Should be up very shortly.
