Ooooh, LJ....

I've just remembered I have an LJ account... wheeee!

I can't believe it's more than 18 months since I failed my finals, my how the time flies. I've been in the same job for a whole year, they still haven't given me even a sniff at a permanent contract (this is the NHS after all) and I'm married. Oh, and there's Maelstrom (squee!).

Now all I need to do is start studying with Open University (I spent 3 years at Uni, dammit I'm not giving up until I have a degree!), get a car (money-dependent), and come to some sort of ceasefire with the housework.

Guess the song...

Meme via lowellboyslash

1. Randomly pick a song from your music library.
2. Find the lyrics for the first four verses/chorus.
3. Go to Google Translation and translate the lyrics from English into German.
4. Take the new German lyrics and translate them into French.
5. Take the new French lyrics and translate them into English.
6. Post the NEW English lyrics and have people guess the original song.

Oh dear god, what have I done? That said, this is probably an improvement...Collapse )


And, once again, it's been months since I updated. Lectures are okay-ish at the moment I guess; I've missed quite a few in the last ten days or so but I'm putting that down to general unwellness caught from other people. The sheer exhaustion appears to have passed, but now my lungs are doing the 'gradually filling up from the inside' thing. *sigh*

I ought to be better at this organisation thing - I certainly need to be. I desperately want to get a 2.1 in my finals after getting a 3rd last year. Unfortunately this means work, and after two and a bit years maths is definitely beginning to lose its attractiveness as a subject. Looking on the bright side it's *not* as bad as last year - the things I'd hoped help are helping, requiem_17_23, my housemates and working in the CMS are what's keeping my head above water. Now if only I can finish the Linear Analysis sheet by this afternoon...

Reffing TreasureTrap is wonderful, especially when the players do something totally unexpected. A prime example of this is yesterday's linear - I *really* hadn't expected them to bring the Elemental of DHOOOOM!!! home with them, but we can work with that. It'll mean re-writing what we thought would happen in the next few weeks, but that's FUN, and the opportunity to let the PCs' actions influence what's going on is well worth it.

The last few months have made me realise that what I really enjoy doing is having a huge task and breaking it down into manageable bits and converting cool ideas into things that will actually practically work. Wooo! Transferable Skills! Now if only I could actually get around to writing a CV I might even apply to a few jobs.

General's Visit was so much fun!
I originally intended to just pop out for maybe 20 minutes or so to ambush by the CMS but was too late, and ended up staying for the entire thing. Many soakings were enjoyed by both sides, then it was time for the final showdown at Reality Checkpoint. The Retinue were all dressed as Ninjas so the Pirates, seeing the common bond, offered to change sides...

After a rather sneaky backstab to allow the Ninjas onto Parker's Piece unmolested we formed lines... and people got wet. Very wet. Yay!

Afterwards I walked back in Flying_O's long black cloak (want one!) and had muchfun teasing tourists.


I currently have a rather strange tension between being absolutely terrified that I haven't done the work I need to do and looking forward to after exams. Oh well, should get on with it I suppose...
