It's only just past 9:30am but it's already shaping up to be the best Christmas I can remember for these past few years :D Not that the others haven't been nice... this one is just extra nice :)

Wishing you all so much love and happiness and dreams-come-true, because you are wonderful and you make my life brighter :)

1. Miracles do happen


2. 2am is not a good time for rational thinking, and the next time i believe it is, i should just read this post, go to bed and think about the problem in the morning.

I just watched 4 episodes of Lost in a row...

SPOILERS for up to and including 2.06 but that's ok since everyone's seen them alreadyCollapse )

I need to email my Lost supplier and beg for more episodes...

Also, PLEASE DON'T SPOIL ME FOR FUTURE EPISODES I know you're all waaay ahead of me (what episode are you guys up to?) but please don't spoil me cos if you do I will cry and then go kick a puppy ok so I would never kick a puppy but that's not the point

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In October I helped pseudonihilist see the light (8 points). In June I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the 5 near LA (-76 points). In February I set lady_twatterby's puppy on fire (-66 points). Last week I bought porn for undrockroll (-10 points). Last Tuesday I pushed skadi101 in the mud (-17 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-161 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!


Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:

Spanking from whom? *weg*

Also... I would have thought buying porn for Darcy would earn me + points! Silly people :)

It's 12 days till Christmas! The house is undecorated, I literally have not bought a single present, I haven't sent out any cards and I've never been so unprepared for it in my life.

I AM looking forward to our work Christmas party, though - lunch at some fancy restaurant (well, I don't know how fancy it is, but I do know that for the price of one of their entrees, I could have a full meal at uni) and then the afternoon on a yacht (belonging to one of the people at work) and then drinks after, maybe. I bought a new outfit yesterday! *g* 3/4 jeans (my first pair! I am such a dag) and a black halterneck top with blue sparkly bits :) And a pale green embroidered halterneck top, too, because they were having a 'buy one, get one free' sale. I also found a pair of jeans that I love!! And I really need new jeans. But these were $100 and I just can't reconcile myself to spending $100 on a single piece of clothing that's not a dress. I'm cheap as well a dag ;)

Working 5 days this week, although Friday hardly counts because half of it will be the Christmas party. But I want to know - omg, how do people work full time?! I worked all day Thursday/Friday, and now Monday/Tuesday and it's ridiculous how much I just want a day off! lol. (I worked Saturday and Sunday at my other job, and got totally sunburnt on the backs of my arms an legs while I was painting a sign.)

Hmm. Still crushing Hornblower and Bush ♥ :) Got out the Fantastic Four DVD today just because Ioan was in it! :) He is much more adorable as Hornblower, but his smile! And the goofy geekiness... And the way he can't completely hide his Welsh accent...

Ohh... And I got another parcel notification in the mail today!! *bounce* It's an international insured item... I wonder who sent it and what it is? :D I love mail so much!! *g* I'm getting my brother to pick it up for me tomorrow because I'll be at work all day, but tomorrow evening is such a long way away when I know the parcel is only 500m down the road!

Things will calm down for at least a week starting next Friday, because my work closes for a week then :)

I love summer!

Name 5 of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick 5 people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used. Tag 5 people on your list. (from disc_sophist)

1. Being awake at 5am when I don't have to be, and knowing that I can go back to sleep for as long as I want when I want to.

2. Good stories, be it a book, movie or fic.

3. Tea. There's nothing so comforting as hot, sweet tea...

4. Snail mail/email.

5. Going out to dinner.

You're tagged if you want to be :)

And now I believe I'm going to take advantage of #1.

Today has been an ordinary day; it was gorgeously sunny, I went to work, I came home...

... and waiting for me in the post was a package from Germany, with the two Hornblower DVDs that I was missing from my collection! They were sent by a girl on a forum that I've only been a member of for about a month; I barely know her, but she offered to send me copies of the two movies because I was sad that I did have them! I don't even know how to express my surprise and joy at such kind thoughtfulness, but wow. :) And THEY PLAY ON MY LAPTOP!!!! Because the cheap pirated ones I bought from eBay don't, and I'm quite upset about that because what am I going to do next year?! But, wow, I'm so touched :)

And then, I checked my hotmail account because I got a message saying "you have 2 new messages", and that was strange because I never ever use my hotmail anymore. And in my inbox was an Amazon gift voucher for US$60 and right now I'm just so overwhelmed I could cry. It's from a friend I used to chat with all the time, before we kind of lost touch, but recently I've been seeing him on MSN again (Anjali, remember Lefty/Jeff?). And that's just so incredibly lovely and generous of him and he really, really shouldn't have, but I'm so touched and overwhelmed and... lost for words.

There are such wonderful people in my life; so many small acts of kindness that mean so much to me; such great friends without whom the world would be a much darker and duller place; the best family I could hope for to love, and to love me; I love you all, so much, and I'm grateful for you every single day. I don't know why I'm so lucky to have you all, and I'm not entirely sure that I deserve you, but I'm so happy that I do, and I hope you all know and remember it always. *big huge hugs because I love you!*

I love that I have this dilemna. It means I'm on holidays and can do all of these things guilt-free!

What should I do?

1. Continue bumming around online, search for HH fic and journals, play yahoo games, maybe catch some of you on AIM

2. Go DRAW something! :) (I've been obsessed with Paul McGann/Lt Bush's eyes for weeks... but I don't have any hard copy pictures of him, and there's no way I can draw from memory and I don't think I'd be much good at drawing from a laptop screen, either)

3. Write a fic, omg! :) Something lovely and HH and WB and h/c...

4. Write some fangirl discussion on HH and WB

5. Finish reading "A Breath of Snow and Ashes"

6. Read more Hornblower

7. Watch more Hornblower

8. Watch Anne of Green Gables

9. Write well-deserved feedback to the authors of bits of HH fandom that I'm utterly in love with

10. Tidy my room *guilt*
