Oh, did I say I've been offered a job interview?
Make that two job interviews. Booyah.
Now I gotta weigh up pros and cons and stuff. Quietly confident. And it's ended the drought. Current Mood: smug

I just sat through the Twilight
Seeing as Edward Cullen (a vampire) is basically dating his lunch (a human), I'm really, really tempted to write a parody in which he's a human with an obsessive love for a piece of fried chicken.( chatlog with Zarrah to this effectCollapse )
And on that note, bathtime. >,>

So, a file on my USB decides it's going to corrupt itself. Guess which one?
Swear to god, if Technofail happens one more time on this, I'm going to cut a bitch. Then NPC. Then cut a completely different bitch.
Bah humbug, I need to get ready for work

|The Australian Embassy rang; they want their Ashes back.
As stolen from the glamorous speaky_bean
:the family meme
May as well, pinch this, innit.
Anyway, the only reason I'm online at the minute is because I hate packing with a burning passion. I'm going down to Devon tomorrow to visit Marie... it was meant to be a big BBQ with people from uni, but due to various circumstances pretty much everyone's dropped out. Though I had a text a few minutes ago saying Other Dan and Matt are coming (I dont know matt too well, and Dan's a pretty sound guy), so this'll be hopefully worth it.
Today was also supposed to be my last day at the office. I'm on leave for two weeks (wedding fuuuuu~), then I was meant to finish on the 9th, and move up to Scotland that weekend. Obviously, none of this is happening now, but it did mean the whole day was a little bit odd, purely because it felt so damn ordinary.
Wasn't even a particularly good
Anyway, that was about all. I'm just gonna try and get these clothes packed for the weekend. Gah... I'm such a woman when it comes to packing clothes. *IS LAMETARDED* But... it'll be good to see people again.
Probably not gonna be on LJ this side of the wedding, but I scarcely update anyway, so who's really bothered? =D;;ETA:
I just got Hatted again!! And the person is niceish! Woohoo! =D Current Mood: ditzy

...okay, this is kinda strange.
It turns out my old school is fingerprinting students, and using the information to monitor their purchases in the canteen, in the library, and the attendance. With minimal discussion with parents.
Seriously, I found it kinda Orwellian when I was there, but seriously? Biometric scanning? On children? =/
Nice to see nothing's changed. Current Mood: *facepalm*

|Question for all the McEdinburgers on my flist!
Hi all! Request for info, if you can help!
So yeah... further to the previous squeeing about getting accepted to Edinburgh, i need to figure out somewhere to live.
But, basically, doing the sums, I'm gonna be skint. In the "probably gonna have to take out loans" sense of the phrase.
I was wondering... what areas of Edinburgh are nice places to live, and what parts really really aren't? Aaand... where is inexpensive, and where is pricey as heck? I'm needing to find somewhere cheap I can live for 12 months (possibly another 12 months after that), without having to worry every night about whether or not I've double-locked every door, window and chimney.
I mean... I can look on a map and I'm going up to Scotland next week to have a look around, but.... yeah. Local knowledge is always super handy, I find. :D
Thanks for any help you may or may not be able to provide, and also thanks for reading all this. Unless you've skipped to the end, in which case screw yourself. ♥
Oh, also... I can't drive. So it needs to be somewhere with decent bus links to everywhere, ideally.
Thanks once more XD

|TV icon Meme
Stolen from a couple of people:
❶ Choose an episode of anime or television series you have on your computer. Make sure you're certain you want that one, you cannot change your mind. DO NOT TELL YOUR FLIST WHAT YOU CHOSE.
❷ Make note of how long the episode is here -> 58:10
❸ Ask your flist to choose a time between 00:00 and whatever the length of your episode is. Be specific, (ie: 19:11, 21:09, 02:42)
❹ Make them an icon using THAT FRAME ONLY no matter what it is. And remember, you can only use that ONE episode you chose previous, even if the person posting isn't familiar with it.
The episode is 58:10. Not counting credits, cos that would be silly. Get claiming! :O
This is mostly an excuse for me to play around with Photoshop. Although I'm not gonna do too much shopping on this one, obviously.
Aaaanyway. Life is boring, and I need a holiday. Like, reaaaallllly need a holiday.
Oh yeah, and a school not tooooo far from where I live has had 60 cases of Swine Flu. Yatta! \o/

OH GOD MY LEGS ARE KILLING ME
I don't even know why, it's not like I did huge amounts of walking... it's probably more to do with the silly amounts of alcohol I drank, and the silly lack of sleep I got. Which is made even sillier by the fact it was a FUCKING FIVE STAR HOTEL ROOM WITH A PLAYSTATION OMGOMG
My stalker blanked me more or less the entire time we were down there. Which was fine with me. \o/
Also got to meet up with Auntie Nicki, which was all kinda of awesome. Went on the pier, had ice creams, and bitched about all sorts of things ^____^
Honourable mention goes to princesslia84
who kindly donated floor space to me. As well as a hamster who decided he was going to get in his wheel and generate electricity for the entire south coast at about 3am. Lodging a well-aimed felt-tip pen through the bars of the cage fixed that, though. Also little Abbie was awesome.
Anyway, I'm McShattered and I've got to go and get a bomb strapped to my chest again tomorrow. Yey!

It's not uncommon for me to write a running commentary for Eurovision in my LJ as the songs come by. This year I didn't because I'm packing for the Brighton conference, and also mostly because I can't be arsed.
I will however express my opinion of the UK entry:( It's my time~Collapse )ETA:
Wellllll, I'm off south till Tuesday. Lia, I'll text you. See you guys!

Is anyone else just a teeny
bit fed up of hearing about Susan Boyle? =/

Mega-Zine is finally ended forever.
Part of me feels quite saddened; after all, that's where I got my ANBY-ness from back when I was seventeen... and as I'm turning 23 next week, it goes well beyond many of my other memories (partly assisted by my inability to remember anything earlier than Year 11)
Most of me is just "am-i-bovvered-tho".
Regardless... life goes on.
Edinburgh tomorrow. I need to pack. And check what the weather's gonna be like. But I can't be arsed to stand up. \o/ Current Mood: pensive

Assuming there are still any of you Scots folk who still use teh LJ who know the answer to this, but...
What's the main train station in Edinburgh?

|General Lent Nosiness
Yey, have a survey.
Because I'm nosey: what, if anything, are you giving up for Lent?
If you ARE giving something up, what's your motivation for doing so?
Do you normally try giving stuff up?
If so, what's usually the most challenging part?
I was going to say more about stuff, but shan't. Bedtime. I need to brush me teeth; I completely raped them with pancake sugar today
So, on the bus home tonight, I picked up a stray copy of the Metro.
Not that there's ever anything worth reading in it (the sort of free paper where the most serious piece of journalism is arguably the horoscope). Anyway, I saw this in the letters page... I lolled IRL
So yeah, I've tried replying to it under the pseudonym of N. River, so we'll see if that gets a reply.
Lawlz for in-character opinion letters XDD Current Mood: amused

|The Internet Gets Stupider.
Whilst in town this afternoon (met up with the NaNo people to do a bit of a mini-write-in type thing just to keep the creative juices flowing), we came across this
as a prompt, and were asked to write for ten minutes from the viewpoint of someone who steadfastly believes in it.
After we were done, we discovered the forum
about it. Including this forum thread
