Semagic  
Hey guys, any of you use Semagic to post to communities? It's logged me in tonight but I can't see any of my communities I have posting access to in the journal drop down.

It was working fine last week. Do you think it has something to do with the new redesign?

Have had the plague, so not felt up to interwebbing for the last few days. Feeling on the mend somewhat now, and have made these...

Week Two: A Silhouette

A photograph with a subject(s) captured in a shadowy outline with little or no detail against a bright background.

Thanks to Stargazing Live this week my eyes have been turned back upto the heavens, sadly I live too far south to see the Northern Lights (one day though) and there's too much light pollution to see all but the brighest stars, but at least I can see the moon.

Ex-Cheddar is full of cold, so we've had a pretty uneventful day. However she's discovered the recent My Little Pony film on Netflix, so we had to watch it. I wasn't impressed. Turning ponies into people just to sell toys makes me sad. Especially as she now wants one (all skinny and long legged). Damn you Hasbro!

Space

I love Stargazing Live. If I could I'd give them a hefty 1/3 of my licence fee (the rest being split between Who and Sherlock).

And this series they are looking at one of my favourite things you can see in the sky. The aurora. Sadly, living in the Midlands, the chances of me seeing one is very, very small. Especially when it's blooming well chucking it down on the night we're most likely to see one. Gah!

Mind you, there's so much light pollution that the chances of me seeing one is probably quite small, even if it was clear.

I've decided that for my 40th I want to go to Norway or Iceland to see it myself. (Need to get a pasport first, mind, and save up a lot of money. And buy some thicker coats).

Back to work

I went back to work today for the first time since 20th December and I've discovered that I really like not being at work. Oh for a lottery win!

Came back to a load of emails too. Pah. Spent the day organising my in trays so I know exactly what I need to do and what I've got outstanding. Well it's better than leaving it to pile up.

Definitely have a busy few weeks ahead of me.

Let's Talk meme: Focus on Life: week 1  
Week 1's prompt was the minimalist photograph and here's my interpretation:

image

One of my daughter's crayons. This little blue crayon has in the last day created rocket ships, tractors and mysterious alien planets, it's made the sea for a pirate ship to sail across and a beautiful blue dress.

It's amazing how something so simple can create so much.

My thoughts on Sherlock - The Empty Hearse (as requested by abby_i

Yes, I was looking forward to Sherlock even more than Doctor Who this Christmas. It's been two years, I'd almost forgotten what they looked like. ;)

Spoilers!Collapse )

In Conclusion
tl;dr Don't leave us for so long next time.

Really looking forward to Sunday's episode.



If you want to give me a topic for the let's talk meme just leave a comment with your topic and chosen day, there's still plenty to choose from.
