Ao3 is down! Oh the humanity!! I may have to go to sleep like a sensible person, the horror. Ugh.

XD (Why yes, I am aware of my own ridiculousness)

I changed my layout because the other one was too annoying to read on my phone. This is totally a valid reason. I'm not sold on this one but it'll do for now. Anyone know where I can get awesome layout for DW?

I also signed up for [community profile] trope_bingo and, when I got my card and started looking up what the tropes were (according to the comm) AU: Alt. Gender Norms made me cry. Its the Omegaverse, mpreg, my how can we erase all the yucky women from our universe trope apparently. Although the blurb does, reluctantly, suggest that, maybe, you could do a matriarchy. I may instead ignore it entirely. Instead I want to skip off and do cutesy domestic fic. And maybe the indecent proposal one. Maybe. IDK. I've only just started looking at the card.

For your amusement:


role reversal indecent proposal secret twin / doppelganger au: royalty / aristocracy / feudal road trip
first time / last time au: other marriage power dynamics holidayfic
au: alternate gender norms curtainfic FREE

SPACE
against all odds au: alternate professions
sharing a bed transformations matchmaker in vino veritas / drunkfic au: crossover
deathfic telepathy / mindmeld unexpected friendship au: historical twenty-four hours to live


I'm hoping that, between this and [personal profile] oxoniensis's porn battle I might start coming on this dread machine more and remember what this whole writing, participating, being about thing is. At least a little. I have offline plans to get a life as well so it may be a bit of a balancing act.

I still haven't worked out where I was before the computer decided to play silly beggers. I should get on that. :S

My anti-virus updated the other day and now my computer seems to be behaving itself (I can actually load firefox and performance in general seems less... crappy, yey!) I have used this better behaviour to catch up on All The Shows:

Almost Human Spoilers )

Sleepy Hollow, up to the season finale )

um, Lost Girl next I think )

Teen Wolf, again spoilers )

Death In Paradise )

What else have I been watching?

Agents of SHIELD )

Omg I didn't realise it had been so long! It was before Christmas that I last posted. Did y'all have a good Christmas and New Year? (I hope so)

I've barely been online since before Christmas of course.

Whoops. Using a posting client ap thing on my phone. Hit send too early. Will
update as I go along. :)

Ooh Bev just felt a sudden wave of something when she said the words "Jack and I" from Picard. They're telepathically bonded at the moment. Man its so tropey. But since its an actual ep it'll stay "Teen" (at most).

So what was I saying? Oh yeah, I'm barely online at the moment. I'm ridiculously attached to my phone. I can read ao3 and check my emails and buy stuff off amazon (and tesco) and play stupid games. My laptop has only been on like twice since christmas. Since dw/lj aren't very usable on my phone that doesn't really help. Oh well, hopefully this ap will help.

So what's happening? What's new? Hoe are you?

Can you be depressed without realising it? Or am I just looking for excuses why I suck again? It's just.... ok, here's my "evidence", for what it's worth:

Read more... )

Anyway, I feel sucky today. /self pity ramble over.

My firefox is being weird and refusing to load pages. It is not helpful. Chrome is working fine but I'm weird and my Chrome is for things like "looking for jobs and applying for teacher training and stuff like that" so I sort of don't want to have to move all my fannish, creative stuff over here. Its annoying.

I can't work out what it is though. I tried following troubleshooting online and it was all like check your firewall settings and proxy settings, which I have done and still not working. Its annoying. And I'm just not savvy enough to fix it.

TBH I initially thought it was just my computer being a douche but no. Well not entirely. Sadness.

I turned on my computer (I'm on my phone just now, lovely phone) and it started up fine. I could see my hundred and twelve sticky notes and my icons and things loading. I went off to do stuff (ie sort out the presents I bought yesterday) and out of the corner of my eye I saw my computer going to a blue screen. Always a bad sign. As I went to go over it restarted all on its own and I was like "ok, let it do that then we can run all the error checking defragging virus scanning normal crap and try and work out whats what". But it didn't go back to a normal log in screen, no, it went to a black screen with white writing and when I went to read it IT SAID IT COULDN'T FIND AN OPERATING SYSTEM! WTF!?!?!?

I have switched it off and am ignoring it.

In other news my telly won't switch on. I am surrounded by broken electronics. Save me??

So I was better this month at the whole doing useful things although not as good as I was being back in July/August. I have no explanation for this. :S Still, onwards, upwards right.

so there's some spoilers for Almost Human Ep 2 under here )

So there you go, could have done better, could have done worse. :)

Just going to leave this here:

Glasgow helicopter crash: 'Three dead' at Clutha pub

This is pretty much the city centre. My sister walks past that pub to work every day. I have friends who live LITERALLY round the corner from there. The big Argos in the city centre is just up the road. Its... weird. As far as I'm aware no one I know was there.

This was not the update I intended today but I just wanted to mark it.

Update: make that nine deaths.

Man, why has Almost Human not started yet!?
aryas_zehral: Tina grins as Quinn and Santana Hug; words say "Tina Ships It" (Glee- Tina Ships It)
I so suck at this internet thing at the moment. I had four days off work and, aside from looking at things (read: fic on AO3) on my phone, I did not turn on the computer once. Trufax. It is very strange. I think its because, after work, my eyes are sort of sore and not overly capable of looking at the computer for long. This is very annoying.

That said I've signed up to do a couple of things which both require being online.

1. [livejournal.com profile] waltzingalong and I decided to try our hands at running a land comm, namely [livejournal.com profile] femslashverse which is kinda fun so far. Admittedly its a wee tiny land that was on hiatus for, like a year, came back briefly, stuttered, died and we decided to take over. And, so far, the fact that we're making up the end dates and post dates - and they're pretty much all Sunday - means that its fairly easy to remember what we're doing. :D Also we may have sat down and worked out what every challenge for the phase is in advance to make sure that we didn't end up flailing later.

2. I signed up to write 50,000 words of Quinntana for NaNoWriMo this year. Its 3 hours into the day (i.e. its almost 3am) and I've got a thousand words of... description and no plot. I'm trying to set up the equilibrium of their lives before I introduce something to break that equilibrium and then do plot. Since I've signed up to do that, that does mean that I need to actually be online to write. I may try writing some of it on my phone at work but I don't imagine I can get very far on a teeny wee touch screen keyboard where half the time I hit "m" when I mean "."

Progress:


I'm going to try and procrastinate doing NaNo with housework and useful stuff and try and procrastinate housework and useful stuff with NaNo. And no telly before writing (or there will be no writing). I can't decide whether this will mean I slip into a weird loop where I can't move because any move would end up with me having to go back to the other in an endless cycle of procrastination. Or whether I might actually get stuff done on both fronts. I'm hoping for the latter. :) Although, notice, I'm already procrastinating with something other than housework so ... yeah. :S

Heya,

Is anyone else getting heaps of really annoying vanish errors on LJ tonight? Because like every second page I try to access just won't load!! V. Annoying.
aryas_zehral: Close crop of Chiana's mouth, slightly open as if worried/breathless (Default)
Heya! How are you? Are you well? I've accidentally hiatused again. Need to quit doing that its just that it makes my head sore being on the computer alot and... I can read ALL THE FIC and play on TUMBLR from my PHONE. Its so awesome. I'll never sleep again. :D

1. I sorta, kinda, maybe agreed to be a co-mod to a land comm over on LJ. I've modded teams before but not a whole comm. :S Now I'm trying to come up with challenges... and sensible points system... and a schedule I can actually stick to. At the moment it looks like we're aiming at the challenges being posted/ended on Sundays because [personal profile] waltzingalong and I are usually about on Sundays.

Now I just need to work out how to stop Google Docs putting curly " on everything. It's very annoying.

2. I kind of didn't go to work for seven days. I didn't mean to not go to work for seven days. It started with a migraine which I'm fairly certain was the fault of delicious evil ice cream. I think I might be ... allergic or something, I don't do well with cream either... The migraine lasted a couple of days (the light sensitivity is still nipping about but ignore ignore ignore) but then I just ... couldn't go to work. I'd wake up and be like "I just, I need to get up and I need to go to work, I can't afford this" and then got all anxious/panicky and ... went back to sleep. So much sleeping!! I am so screwed next month when my pay check is like down a quarter. :S I need to go back to work tomorrow. *boak*

I went to my Doctor's re: the whole panicking when I had to go to work, persistent dread about work even on my days off and hatred of the place when I'm there thing and he told me to get a new job. Yey! Thanks dude. As it is, I agree with him but still its hard to apply for jobs when you think there's no point because everything I do is wrong and sucky. I know I'm being ridiculous but my brain, not on board with the rest of us.

3. I have been downloading loads of cheerful, motivational, pictures from Tumblr and have set up a picture frame widget on my brand new phone to look at when I feel shitty/when I'm doing my exercises. I'm trying not to reblog all of them but my tumblr is looking a bit.... motivational speakery.

4. I'm loving shows being back or starting. Haven!! I've watched so much Haven the last few weeks. I totally ship Duke/Nathan with a side dish of Audrey/Duke/Nathan (but not Audrey/Duke or Audrey/Nathan for some reason). Agents of SHIELD was good, popcorn, although Ward? was blah and boring and meh. Also watched Criminal Minds and Hawaii 5-0. They were alright. Lol.

I just noticed that its five past eight. I need to leave the house about twenty past eight. I'm still in bed. Whoops.

And yet I'm still on my phone. See this whole having to move and get up is the main problem with doing overtime on my scheduled day off. But its only four hours and its double time. I'll be finished at 1 and then I'm going to go get some lunch and coffee and go looking for a present for my niece (she's 1 on Saturday). :)

I guess I should move now. 8.08

I appear to have accidentally taken a couple of weeks off the internet again. Whoops.

In other news, work sucks and my hours recently have been super unsociable.
aryas_zehral: Close crop of Chiana's mouth, slightly open as if worried/breathless (Default)
What is it? Why do I keep seeing it mentioned? Should I check it out?
aryas_zehral: Close crop of Chiana's mouth, slightly open as if worried/breathless (Default)
I'm just going to leave this here to remind me to do it. Its a bingo card for [community profile] adulting and I only need to do a line (you know how these things work).



I love getting cards. I love looking at them and going "I really must get on that" and then not doing anything. Which reminds me, I should maybe work on my kink_bingo card...

Incidentally, reckon going to find a weight watchers meeting in a place I don't know tomorrow should totally be a fill for square five and I've been meaning to do that whole sorting out my dead and dying houseplants thing for a while so I'm aiming at doing the first line. :) Maybe tomorrow.
