cold_nostalgia: Default (Smug)

My big toe still hurts like a bitch, but it's not so bad as long as I don't put too much weight on it, so at the moment I'm kind of limping about like a demented servant from a gothic horror story.  It could be worse I suppose, I could have the hump to go right along with it.  Sliver linings and all that.

Slept a little bit better last night, I'm still exhausted though, and I lost the power of speech about three o' clock, which was pretty funny considering I was responding to a 'english as a foreign language' query at the time.  I reckon it'll be another early one this evening - well, that's the intention anyway.

On a happier note, to make up for the shittyness of Sunday evening and yesterday, I hopped out at lunchtime and bought some comfort dvds for myself - Ulysses 31, the entire series for £8.99 and The Wizard of Oz for a fiver.  I feel like such a geek, but I haven't seen them in years and I was just completely overcome with nostalgia when I saw them - it had to be done.  Granted, I have barely any money to last me to the end of the month and I'll probably be taking my begging bowl round to my mothers', but it was worth it.  Squee!

And on a completely unrelated note I just have to say how much I love the BBC's cracktastic revisionist history of Edward the first in their worst British Monarchs feature.  It really made me go WTF!

Well I said I'd find away to do next to nothing and I did.  Got some housey worky stuff done, as well as some other bits and bobs, but not anything really worth mentioning.  Oh, wait...

I had another flick through Allan Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking. According to everyone who's ever used it, it's supposed to be the greatest book of that particular genre.  Be that as it may, I really can't get past Allan Carr's obsession with CAPTIALIZING every OTHER word.  It's one of my pet hates when it comes reading, I really don't like being shouted at, not to mention the fact it reminds me of Frank Miller.  Heh.  FRANK MILLER'S GODDAMN EASY WAY TO STOP GODDAMN SMOKING.  You never know, it could happen.

 I've been a pretty heavy smoker for the last twelve years and at this point I really want to give up.  The really sad thing is, my reason for doing it isn't health related at all, it's more down to the financial aspect of it all.  I simply can't afford to anymore, when you're deciding between a weeks worth of groceries, a few nights out or a weeks worth of groceries and a weeks worth of cigarettes, then Huston you have a problem. Yep it's pathetic.

 Anyway I'm thinking I might try a helpline next - don't laugh - see if they have any suggestions, other than patches - I can just see myself getting addicted to them instead for some reason.   It'd just be like the thing.

In other news, I did a bit of work on several of my fics today.  One's not going anywhere, the other is going to get edited to hell, a mini got posted, and I made as start on a couple of others.  Whether or not the new ones see the light of day is another matter entirely.

And on a completely unrelated note, I've decided that in addition to wanting a Adipose soft toy for christmas, I also want a Crazy!Caan toy.  How geeky of me.

Two days off! Huzzah! It's been a shitty week and I'm thrilled to see the back of it.  I've got a ton of stuff to do, but I'm sure I'll find a way to put them on hold while I find cheapish ways to amuse myself.  Hmmm.  

In other news, Doctor Who was bloody brilliant.  That is all.

 I was there and I'm officially here now.  Hopefully, this time round, it'll last a little longer than three months.  Who knows, maybe I might manage a whole year of this username before I get bored of it as well.  It's occasions like this when I sometimes wonder if I should just get a proper credit card - I could have just changed my name with a paid account - but then I remember what I'm actually like when it comes to impulse buys, and I remember it's a very good thing that I don't have one. A very, very good thing.

Had a really busy day today.  Campaign changeovers are always hellish, I've got a million tiny paper cuts underneath my nails and they're stinging like crazy.  I can barely type - not that's unusual when it comes to me, but you know.

It would've been nice to have an extra pair of hands helping me out when I was trying to do a million things at once, but I suppose that would have been like asking for a pot of gold or another five weeks of holiday.  *Sigh*
