Okay, just a few more things to do and then I'm off to catch a train to Wakefield to catch a train to Leeds to catch a train to London to catch a train to get to St Albans where I will be seeing some of you YAY.
Leaving for London in two minutes! BSB tonight, AJ tomorrow night, and more importantly seeing a good few of you! Yay!
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. :)
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!
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.
