I don't normally go online before work, for the very good reason that it is STUPID EARLY, and while I can manage to get myself out of the house by seven am, most of it's just well practised sleepwalking. But today is a special day!

First thing: extreme happy birthday wishes to the very wonderful lelise!

Second thing: it is my turn for Awesome April fic, so thanks to msktrnanny for beta, and here goes...

It would possibly be accurate to say that I am seeing someone. Would it? I don't know. When do you say that? I've never done this before!

Anyway, he works in my department, but thankfully right at the other end of the (huge) room. I was kind of at that teenage I think he likes me stage for a while, and then he asked me last week if I wanted to have lunch with him, and I was like, okay, and then just before I was going to go and meet him at Starbucks I was having huge misgivings. I mean, I don't DO this type of thing. I don't like people! I don't trust people! But then I went and it went well, he's nice, I like him, he likes me, that kind of thing. So we're doing that again next week, and maybe going out at some point in the future, and we've been doing a lot of emailing. :)

So. yes.

Anyone up for beta duty? I have 1500 words of (nsync) gen due to be awesomised. And probably somewhat Americanised Americanized, come to think of it. So any help with either or both would be appreciated!

Has anyone who is going to the AJ show in London on May 15th got somewhere I can crash/want to share a cheap hotel room for that night? I'm staying with trumpeterofdoom on the 14th after BSB, but I wasn't going to stay for the AJ concert so she's rooming with other people. In very high demand, that one. Anyway, I crumbled and now am going to see AJ (yay!) but don't have anywhere to stay (boo!). I'm quite clean! I have pyjamas with sheep on! Anyone?

Sekrit message for trumpeterofdoom: It *was* All I Have To Give! You know too much!

Dear people: I have been very lax with my posting. I get this way when I've done a lot of socialising (for me) - I have this tendency to retreat into my own space for a while. OR I'm just lazy. You know.

So, just in case you have forgotten, this is what I remember of the awesomeness that was Camp SparkleCollapse )

We had an earthquake last night (like you didn't know). I have never experienced an earthquake before, I had NO IDEA what was happening when it woke me up.

First thought: someone is breaking in downstairs.
Second thought: No, that's not right. My brain must be doing mad things again. Bugger.
Third thought: My heart is beating really fast! *tries to feel heartbeat* I can't feel my heartbeat! Maybe I am dead.

Then I went back to sleep. Burglary, psychosis and/or death are not good enough reasons for me not to sleep.

I got up late, no time to watch the news (or eat breakfast or have coffee), got to the station, girl at the station said, "did you feel the earthquake?"

Me: No? Earthquake? When? ... wait, was it around one in the morning? So THAT'S what it was.

Which was a relief. I'm not going mad again, and no-one broke in downstairs (and I'm not dead, although I had rejected that hypothesis by the morning). It still took until about 10:30 this morning for my heartbeat to settle down, but I am a nervous person and that kind of thing's to be expected. Final verdict: somewhat exciting, but I'd rather it happened in the daytime next time. Or not at all. Still, it gave everybody something to talk about at work.

CAMP SPARKLE IN 2 DAYS YAY!!!
