America! Fuck yeah! [Jun. 25th, 2013|09:01 pm]
[Tags|, ]

I'm near Boston, MA, and it's amazing! The weather is delicious (it's about 35 degrees, holy moly) and we're having a cracking time. Matt is alternately charming and terrifying the locals. We have eaten a shit-ton of ice cream, and toured Boston in a Duck boat (the kind that featured in this story, but not so sinking, thankfully.)

We're heading towards the Eric Carle museum tomorrow and I'm BEYOND excited. We're then going through the Niagara Falls, across Canada, and out to Michigan, where Matt's younger brother is getting married just after Independence Day. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Thanks to a surprise delivery from the lovely pluckyyounggirl I think I might have a new TV addiction - Once Upon A Time. I've watched the first two episodes and I am HOOKED.

What is (or was) your college major? Do you use it for your career?
Not American, but my undergrad degree was joint honours English Lit and Linguistics. I'm now a lbrary worker, and I use a surprising amount of both.

Happy New Year to you, f-list. Hope you are all merry and joyful wherever you are (and not in bed with a raging chest infection and cough like me).

What would you do if you had a million dollars?

If I had a million dollars... I'd build a tree fort in our yard!

Writer's Block: Collect 'em all [May. 18th, 2011|08:47 pm]

[mood |amusedamused]

Do you collect anything? If so, what do you collect, and what made you start your collection?

I collect My Little Ponies. I have a worryingly large collection of a few hundred (plus playsets, merchandise, etc...)

I started collecting as a kid in the late 80s/early 90s. I stopped and gave away most of my collection when I was about 12, feeling too old for such childish things. Then, when I was about 17 I found the remains of my collection and fell in love with them again.

I only collect very occasionally these days - most of my collection is in boxes. That said, my last splurge was last year when I drove a very long way to collect a Paradise Estate. I mostly collect G1s these days, the ponies of my childhood.

Just popping in briefly [May. 16th, 2011|03:20 pm]

A few things

1)I REALLY enjoyed this week's Doctor Who. Neil Gaiman, you are a treasure of a man.

2) Had an excellent time down south at Amanda's annual WD party. We watched Thor, and had bbq, and saw Who, and rank very heavily through Eurovision.

3) Currently making wedding invitations, omg.

4) Panicking about dissertation, but not actually helping myself by writing anything.

5) Car is broken and needs fixing tomorrow - the bonnet cable has rusted through and snapped! How unfortunate.

(The Muppet Christmas Carol version, not the Slade version.)

Just wanted to wish all of you a very happy and relaxing Christmas.

Oh and by the way, DOCTOR WHO TOMORROW :)

See you on the other side!
