I've now disabled anonymous commenting on this journal because the amount of spam I was getting was ridiculous. And it wasn't even good spam, just random letters and links. If you're going to spam me at least offer me something good. Free iPads or hot webcam action or something. God, it's like you're not even trying any more.

I'm not angry, just disappointed.

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.

Less than two weeks to Christmas now, so I think it's safe to say we are officially in the festive season. I've changed to the Christmas icon and theme for my LJ. If I knew where my USB fairy lights were I'd have them round my laptop screen right now, but I don't and that makes me sad. Maybe I'll find them tomorrow when I continue decorating.

Today I dressed the tree. I'm like the Christmas fairy. People left the house with a bare tree in the living room and when they came back -bam- all pretty and decorated. The good thing about being the only person to do it is that all my decorations get to have pride of place at the top. Although, having said that, most of the decorations are mine anyway. Sometimes I think my family doesn't appreciate Christmas like I do.

London was good, although the Winter Wonderland was disappointing. It was too busy to enjoy it properly and we made a quick escape without actually doing anything. But no matter, other things were good. I got quite a lot of shopping done and I met Ian Hislop and Professor Brian Cox. All in all, a pretty successful trip.

Now I think it's about time to start my Christmas viewing. I shall have to make a list of appropriate films and TV episodes that I've got on DVD and work my way through them. All I know at the moment is that I'll be watching Muppet Christmas Carol on Christmas Eve because it's my tradition and I love it.

Hey, everyone! Remember me? I'd been taking a little LJ-hiatus in order to become an unsociable recluse, but it's a new month and I'm trying to get back into the social habit.

I've been quite productive during my absence. Last week I went to London and booked my holiday to Las Vegas and San Francisco in June. (Hopefully once the date arrives I will have learnt how to spell 'Francisco' without having to stop and think about it like I do now.) Weirdly, it still doesn't feel like it's really happening. It still feels like something we're planning to do one day if we ever get around to it. I think I felt the same way about Australia, but I had a lot longer to wait between booking and going with that one.

Also, in the past few days I have done various things that normal adults can do without issue but which make me sick with anxiety. Not that I wasn't still sick with anxiety, but the important thing is that I did them. Maybe, in time, I too will be a proper grown-up.

Today I commented on two LJ posts and responded to one email. It's bad that this is a huge accomplishment for me, isn't it? I think I'm getting worse.

But enough of that because OMG guess what just got posted?

The 2011 Fandom March Madness Schedule! That's what!

I can almost hear my flist dividing itself into "I know! I've got my campaign materials all ready and waiting!" and "What on earth are you talking about you complete weirdo?" Anyone in the second camp who likes TV, I highly recommend you join in. It's a lot of fun!

And can I just say I'm very much looking forward to campaigning with and/or against people I made friends with last year? It's going to be awesome!

This is an entry. I am writing it and I am going to post it, even if it sucks, because it's been far too long now and I can feel I'm withdrawing into myself again, which I don't want to do.

Newswise, the pressures of retail claimed another employee this week as someone I work with walked out. He just left without telling anyone. I did feel bad for him because there have been many, many times when I've felt like it was all getting to be too much and I just wanted to walk away and escape. But when he phoned up later to explain himself he said that he wanted to mess us about. So he's fired.

Speaking of work, I have quite a bit of holiday left so I'm trying to use it up before it expires at the end of March. I have today and tomorrow as holiday, which is lovely, especially as I didn't get a proper day off over Christmas and New Year. I spent most of today making up a historical globe Puzzleball while watching Star Trek. A very productive way to spend a day I feel.

I'm not sure what the plan is for tomorrow yet. Possibly a jigsaw puzzle. Possibly some Lego. Truly I am the coolest person alive. =D

A week since my last post? That's shocking! I'm falling back into bad habits. But the thing is I haven't really felt like coming on LJ much these past few days (which is also why I've been such a failure at commenting lately. Sorry about that!) It also meant that I ended up keeping my Christmas theme for two days after Epiphany. Whoops.

Last night I went ice skating with some people from work. I only fell down once but I still ache all over today. Next time I go I want an empty ice rink and Booth to hold my hand!

Hey, everyone! Time for my New Year's memes. My answers this year are more upbeat than I can ever remember them being previously, which has to be a good thing!

So I see my plan to comment more on LJ hasn't exactly worked. Sorry about that, everyone! I keep going through strange phases where one moment I'm all "Yay! Christmas! Friends! I'm going to decorate the whole house and then comment on everyone's Livejournal entries and reply to emails and bake cookies for all the people at work!" but then I feel tired and sad and end up crying in my room for no reason instead. As you do, you know.

But I'm still trying to keep in the Christmas spirit. So far I've watched Chuck vs the Santa Claus (Chuck) and A Solstice Carol (Xena), but I'm saving most of the heavy stuff for next week.

And, because I apparently lost my mind, I have agreed to go into work on the two Christmas bank holidays. I'm just going in for an hour or so each day to do cash office stuff because nobody else knows what they're doing in there, but I still find myself amused that this technically means I don't actually get any days off for Christmas this year.
crystalcazzie: (NaNo Icon)
Thank you to everyone who replied to my last entry. I really do appreciate your kind responses.

I know I've been rubbish at commenting lately and I promise to try and do better. I just have to silence that little voice that always pipes up to tell me that everything I write is stupid and the person whose journal I'm replying to will judge me and hate me forever because of it.

It's that same voice that stops me posting as much as I would like to. But I actually have a way of dealing with that. I'm doing NaBloPoMo again, which means I have to post an entry every day of November, no matter how stupid it may be.

I think I have a better chance of winning that than NaNoWriMo. At the moment I really don't feel in any kind of mood to write anything. I mean, it's taken me the better part of an hour to write this entry alone!

Still, I can but try. Maybe once I've started I'll get into the rhythm and it'll be easier. Now I just need to work out where to start...

So, apparently whining on Livejournal has a positive effect on the outside world. Interesting.

Today a nice man came and brought us warmth by fixing the heating. Now the main complaint is that it's too hot in certain areas. After freezing for so long I don't like to complain about this but I do kinda agree. Apparently maintaining a reasonable temperature is beyond the abilities of my workplace.

Also, we get to wear Santa hats. Some of the staff were Scrooges and refused to do so but a lot of us spent the day sporting our festive headgear. That's because we're awesome and they're not. :p

Also also, I have a Christmas LJ theme. Woo!
crystalcazzie: (Default)
Only a few HOURS to go now! Eeeeee!

Yes, I'm still doing my usual CAPSLOCK Friday. Just a bit EARLIER than usual cos I FLY out tonight. I took today OFF work and it feels kinda WEIRD to be sitting at home at the moment. I've DONE my last minute packing and now there's not much ELSE to do before heading off later.

It still doesn't feel ENTIRELY real. Sometimes it does and I feel extremely EXCITED, but then at other times I have to keep REMINDING myself that I'm actually going. I find myself thinking of what to have for DINNER tonight then remember that I'll be at the AIRPORT to eat.

I don't think TILLY is very happy. It's pretty OBVIOUS to her that SOMETHING is happening. She was climbing over my SUITCASE earlier and she keeps LOOKING at me now. I hope she FORGIVES me for leaving her for two weeks.

I wonder if MCGEE will take over my BEDROOM while I'm gone. It wouldn't SURPRISE me.

FURY probably won't care.

Look! I have a shiny new Halloween theme! With less than a week to go I feel the time is right for using it. It's not like I'm playing Christmas songs in October or anything.

Oh...wait. We played Christmas songs at work.

Yes, seriously. I did have a bit of a laugh about it with a customer though. I told her I was appalled at us. Although having said that, I only remember hearing one Christmas song. Maybe they're easing us into it.

In other news, Paul and I saw Wicked at the weekend. It was excellent, although a bit hard to understand at some points. The opening song was almost entirely incomprehensible but fortunately it got a lot better as it went on.

I just saw an advert for cake and now I want some. Alas, I am cake-less.

It's the equinox, Mabon, the first say of autumn and that means it's time for me to start using my autumnal journal theme.

Damn, I love autumn. So much.

The cat was sick on my bed last night. Lovely. I decided it was a good excuse to buy myself a new quilt, a nice thinner one for summer, which means it's going to be freezing cold now.

The Prison Break recaps are coming along. I find myself struggling to write though, as though my mind is foggy and I can't quite work out what I want to say. It's the same reason why I don't update LJ as much as I should. I want to make posts but I can't think of how to say what I want to.

Anyway, there's not much Prison Break left. In fact I believe the finale is on in the States tonight, so I may have to avoid PB related internet sites for a few days. It's not too long until we get it here, only Tuesday. I can last four days. I think.

Actually, with the way I've been playing Lord of the Rings Online recently, I haven't been visiting sites nearly as much as I used to, so it shouldn't be a problem. I'll just have to be careful on LJ.

Also, I'm going to see Star Trek tomorrow and it is going to be awesome.
crystalcazzie: (Purple Flowers)
My old journal theme was depressing me. It wasn't bad or ugly, it just didn't fit with the sunshine and flowers of springtime that I've been seeing a lot of lately. So now I have a shiny new journal theme to look at and enjoy. And hopefully encourage me to post more because I am yet again neglecting this place. I'm a bad person.

Of course my other problem is that I have nothing to talk about. My life is very boring. And with Battlestar Galactica over I'm currently without an ongoing obsession to squee over/complain about. Of course Prison Break should be back soon, maybe I can get back into writing about that.

For now I will share my pain with you. And by that I mean my physical pain because I appear to have done something to my back to make it hate me. Ow. I assume I did something at work but it didn't actually start hurting until this morning, so I don't know.

A post on [ profile] metaquotes has introduced me to the AutoSummarize function on Word and now I'm having too much fun summarising my old stories and fanfiction.

I particularly like my NaNo novel from two years ago, which comes out as:

“Marie.” “Marie.” “Marie. “Marie. “Marie! “Marie.” “Marie.”

“Marie.” “Marie. Marie!”

“Marie! Marie!” “Marie!” “Marie? “Marie?”

“Marie?” “Marie! “Marie.” “Marie. “Marie.”

That year I reached the goal of 50,000 words. Apparently a lot of those words were 'Marie'.

Every time Livejournal changes something, people complain. It's a fact of life and I understand how annoying that must be for the people who run the site. Often they'll do something in the hopes of making the place better only to be faced with comment after comment whining about how stupid it is.

This time, however, I think the complainers have a point. The new profile page is fuck ugly. Why would you do this to us, Livejournal? WHY?!

In other news, I am never going to get anything done again because I'm spending all my time watching this link. Too cute.
