I went to my friend's wedding yesterday and since I came home this morning I've pretty much just sat on the sofa catching up on all the TV I missed while I was there. I still feel completely worn out though. Socialising is hard. Also staying right till the end of the reception and then not sleeping well on top of that. Those things probably don't help either.

I plan on making a more in-depth post about the wedding soon cos it was something that filled me with anxiety (seriously, I was far too nervous for someone who had absolutely no part to play other than show up) and I'm mostly proud of how well I coped, but I am le tired (and apparently still referencing memes from well over ten years ago) so I shall do it later.

Happy 2013!

Happy belated New Year, everyone! I know I'm a bit late with my annual memes. I blame a combination of LJ being down and me being distracted with other things, ooh, shiny...

Time for my annual New Year's memes. I'm feeling a bit tipsy at the moment because we didn't finish the champagne last night so I've taken it upon myself to make the sacrifice and drink the rest of it today. I hope my answers still make sense.

Day Two of the Week of Death done. Yes, that's what I'm calling it. Last week before Christmas is always such a fun time in retail. If I survive it I get rewarded with Matt Smith on the Graham Norton show. And Christmas, obviously.

Also, I have been tagged in a meme by [ profile] rachg82 so here goes:

The rules:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves in their journal.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
3. You have to choose 11 people to tag.
4. No tag backs.

I had my review today at work. It went well and my manager said lots of nice things about me, so that was good. :)

Also, regarding the song meme I posted a few days ago, I have now added the next lines to the songs that still haven't been guessed, so if anyone wants to have another look at them they're under the cut and should hopefully be a bit easier now:

Unguessed Songs. Now with extra lyrics! )
crystalcazzie: (I Harth Darth)
My NaNo story's wordcount has just passed the halfway point. My NaNo story's storyline is nearly finished. This does not bode well.

Still, I have plans to spend the next few hours engaged in some late night desperation writing. Who knows, maybe I'll find a whole new direction to go in. Probably not.

Also, there are still plenty of songs to be guessed on my first lines lyrics meme. If you haven't looked at it yet, please have a go. I'm thinking that tomorrow I might add the next lines for the ones that haven't been guessed yet in order to make it a bit easier.
crystalcazzie: (Default)
I see the lyrics meme is doing the rounds again, so I'm jumping straight in cos these are always fun:

Step 1: Put your iTunes on equivalent or random.
Step 2: Post the first(-ish) line from the first 40 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Bold or Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING.

Today a customer asked me if I had a good time in Australia. She comes in quite a lot and I must have mentioned it to her before I went, although I don't remember. So that was really nice. We chatted about the Bridge Climb for a bit. =)

Also, I have a meme.

Comment to this entry and I will give you a colour. List ten things that you like/love that are that colour.

I got this from Zero ages ago. It's taken me this long to do cos Zero likes to pick on me and gave me magenta as my colour.

As you'll see, I ended up using quite a loose definition of "things that are that colour":

1. Printer ink.

2. The fluffy dalmatian toy that came from a cracker.

3. Flowers.

4. Spectral class t brown dwarfs.

5. Futurama (It's very colourful, I'm sure bits of it are magenta...)

6. Crayons.

7. Cookies. (The cookies themselves aren't, but the writing on the pack looks magenta to me.)

8. Easter eggs.

9. Beauty and the Beast (I have a Belle doll that Emma gave me, the packaging of which is magenta.)

10. Have I Got News For You (Part of the set definitely looked magenta to me last week.)

Happy New Year everyone. I hope people had fun at midnight. I was at home watching the fireworks on TV and drinking champagne with my parents. Yeah, I'm just that cool.

London's fireworks were very impressive this year though, much more so than they have been previously.

Anyway, on to my traditional New Year memes:

Meme One: The Questions )

Meme Two: The Sentences )
crystalcazzie: (Default)
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...


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.)


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.


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.


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.)


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 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.


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.”


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 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.”


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.

Happy FRIDAY everyone. :)

I was being CASH OFFICE trained earlier and I found an UNDATED 20p piece. YAY ME! Hannah currently has it and the plan is to sell it on EBAY. I would kinda like to KEEP IT though. I like collecting COINS.

LJ-wise, I still have a MEME I need to do. Hopefully PAUL will give me my WORDS soon so I can do TWO sets at once because I am just that AWESOME.

Real-life-wise, my IPOD is playing up. The WHEEL is no longer WHEELING. Perhaps it is time for a NEW one, although I am not sure WHICH. I did look at the IPHONE but I really can't justify SPENDING that much.

So, I was tagged with this meme about, oh, two weeks ago, and because I fail at doing much of anything nowadays it's taken me this long to get round to it...

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

I was given the lovely letter H. So here goes:

1. Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen

This is from the concert I went to recently. I had a much better view than these people. =D

2. History is Made by Stupid People by The Arrogant Worms

Who doesn't love the Worms? And this song makes me feel a lot better for having accomplished basically nothing in my life.

3. Holding Out for a Hero by Jennifer Saunders (from Shrek 2)

Shut up, it's awesome.

4. (The) Highwayman by Loreena McKennitt

Musical poetry. Literally.

5. Help! by The Beatles

And a classic to end on.

Happy thing for today - Work was slow and non-stressful.
crystalcazzie: (Default)
Yeah, so I fail at memeing. My happy thing for yesterday is the fact that work didn't completely suck.

My happy thing for today is that there's a new episode of Battlestar Galactica on tonight.

And, while I'm here, another meme yoinked from [ profile] tyasante:

You Are An ISFJ
The Nurturer

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.
A good listener, you excel at helping others in practical ways.
In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.
You find it easy to be devoted to one person... a partner who you do special things for.

In love, you express your emotions through actions.
Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.
You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut

Today was a lovely day, perfect for wandering around Guildford and acting like the weirdest tourists ever.
crystalcazzie: (Default)
Last Time on Caroline's Livejournal: A meme was posted with a cryptic answer. A source of potential happiness was left unrevealed. Sugar was drunk.

And now... The Exciting Conclusion )
crystalcazzie: (Default)
So it appears that I have been tagged with a meme. Since we all know resistance is futile when it comes to memage I shall have to comply.

1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for a week without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same. I'm rubbish at tagging (and I don't have that many friends anyway) so just assume that if you're reading this then you're tagged.

My happy thing today is directly linked to something that should be making me very happy tomorrow. I choose to be cryptic and not reveal what that is until it's actually happened though. Maybe I'm afraid of jinxing it. Maybe I just want to be a contrary tease. Maybe I've lost my mind and am now operating under the delusion that my livejournal is in fact a popular television show and I want you all to tune in tomorrow to find out. Whatever the reason, all shall be revealed in time.

Also, I think someone needs to tell my body that that orange juice, lemonade and grenadine cocktail I made myself didn't actually have any alcohol in it. Lots of sugar though, which may explain why I'm feeling this way...
