I am currently on ALL THE COLD MEDICINE IN THE WORLD in the hopes of being able to marshal a cross country tomorrow, so this should be interesting.

Cut because you guys don't need to see my Id that badly )


I am officially Wile E. Coyote!

So the running is going really well. I'm up to 30 minutes at 10:30 minute mile pace. I got to use the lovely showers at Vauxhall for the first time tonight. Lovely, that is, until I slipped and landed flat on my back.

I may actually live in a cartoon.

Also I'm frantically finishing my big bang (it's due next week WTF WTF WTF), attempting nano, and plotting two bones fics, which is why there's been no trace of me lately. HELP.

I'm back from Ireland! And I want to go home again :( My cousins the osteo-archaeologist and the guy doing a PHD in bone regeneration using stem cells made me watch Bones. And then [personal profile] the_wanlorn made me watch more. ALL I EVER WANTED WAS A SHOW ABOUT MULDER!SCULLY AND SCULLY!MULDER FROM BAD BLOOD. THANK YOU WORLD. Except Zack is my favourite and I have been made aware of why this is a bad idea :(


Why yes, I am a terrible Manics fan

I love the new album. I always love the commercialy albums they only put out to make money.

I have been rewatching G vs E, a show which probably no one but me remembers. I still love it rly hard. Except I watched the one where the get trapped in the falling elevator and then GUESS WHERE I GOT STUCK TODAY?

Also my hometown is having their race week and it's on TV. My tiny town is on the telly! I can see the church! And the factory! And the cattle mart! And... yeah, that's it. Just over two weeks and I will be there :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

If you’ve been tagged, you must write your answers in your own lj and replace any question that you dislike with a new question. Tag eleven people. Don’t refuse to do that. Don’t tag who tagged you. Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

What song are you currently addicted to?

Why yes, my taste in music sits at around 1997. Thank you for noticing.

What's your favorite season?


What’s the latest movie you watched?

I may have watched the A-Team (AKA the fandom that ate my brain) again last night.

What is the one skill you wish you had?

I could never, ever take a sideline cut properly. I haven't played Hurling in six years and my inability to do this still frustrates me.

What’s your current fandom/obsession/addiction?

WHO WANTS TO WATCH ME FAIL HORRIBLY AT WRITING AN A-TEAM BIG BANG FIC? I've only ever written one fic above a thousand words. Hell, I've only ever written about ten fics.

What's your favorite musical instrument?

I used to like the fiddle until I broke my fingers too many times to play properly.

What Web sites do you always visit when you go online?

LJ, DW, Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, BBC, RTÉ.

What was the last thing you bought

Honestly? Milk. I like milk.

If you won 10,000 bucks today, what would you do with it?


awesome book ever?

The Man in the Brown Suit, by Agatha Christie. This is not a popular opinion.

What's the last thing that made you happy?

[personal profile] the_wanlorn going :D at my writing. I am a shallow, shallow creature.

Do you want to learn another language?

Confession: because I never went to school in Ireland, I never actually really learned Irish. My mother has recently noticed this and has decided to educate me through the medium of sport. Last week I learnt the words for goal, point and midfield.

Five things you can’t live without.

Phone, computer, a football, animal planet, ...stuff. I got stuck :(

I hate all fakeouts

Just watched one of my favourite costume dramas (look, I don't care if it has dinosaurs; the Lost World totally counts as a costume drama) and I'd gone long enough without watching the adaptation that I'd completely forgotten they pretended to kill off my favourite character. He was fine at the end but >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>:(

My dad and his mate marshalled a race recently, which involved them spraypainting 'HAZARD' over all the dodgy bits of ground in the park. Because they're idiots. They would probably have gotten away with it except the guy clearing up after them is a Police Sergeant. Because they're idiots.

So tonight I went up to the running club with dad, and we were greeted by "There's my suspect!" The guy was handing his phone around showing everyone photos of the mess they'd made. Fortunately dad's mate was away on holiday, so we just put all the blame on him. "I can tell there was a third person involved in this!" said the guy. "Know how I can tell? Because it's spelt right!"

I can see my house from here!

Thing about Sherlock that will be of no interest to anyone but myself and possibly [profile] buzzylittleb: That's not Baker Street, that's the very top of Gower Street. I can see my uni and my old halls of residence on all the exterior shots!

Weekend, fic

I visited [profile] tazzio on Saturday and we had a barbecue in a fire bucket.

Which ended in us playing 'lets see what shit will burn' and getting called pyromaniacs. Also, Taz has recently discovered alcohol and got completely wasted on two cans of cider. It was sort of impressive.

And I wrote fic. Not quite sure how that happened.

What happens if we steal their rackets?

I am sure I don't have to tell you how awesome the A-Team was. Because it was the most awesome. I am rethinking my position on Jurassic Park being the greatest movie of all time. Also: kinkmeme.

Everyone please enjoy the Guardian tennis liveblogger while you still can, because I get the feeling they won't be invited back tomorrow.

8.40pm: It's 56 games all and darkness is falling. This, needless to say, is not a good development, because everybody knows that zombies like the dark.


Oh Goddamnit

I have totally broken my finger again. I have two football matches on Saturday >:(

BRB duct taping my hand back together. Again.

Oh my God. Honestly, it was like someone took the crack!fic in my head and made it real.

All [personal profile] the_wanlorn and I ever wanted from Lost (and never, ever thought we'd get), was Spoilers! ) OH MY GOD HOW DID THIS HAPPEN.

Also, I inadvertently may have spoiled my mum, who doesn't get to see it until tomorrow. More spoilers! )

And in non-Lost news, the window I was sitting next to burst in the heat yesterday. I didn't even know that could happen! Apparently it was the temperature change of 15C in a week that did it, rather than the actual temperature.

Oh dear.

My father has gone and told everyone that I'm playing in Wembley tomorrow. I mean, I am playing in Wembley, but not in Wembley, you know?

My entire enjoyment of media has been shaped by watching the A-Team and Jaws as a toddler. Everything.

This is so cute :D )

Today I voted! And then helped my dad break into a building site to see why his company hadn't been given the contract. It's because they're still sorting out the sewage system and they haven't started the groundwork yet, moron.

I managed to squick myself horribly

I decided to watch District 9 earlier (mainly because I got myself excited over the A-Team film already and I wanted to see if Murdock was any good). This was a bad idea. I occasionally have eczema on my fingertips and today it is particularly bad. So I was watching the film, absent-mindedly picking bits of skin off my fingers, then he started picking bits of skin off his fingers.

Then there were claws. DNW claws!

I totally did not die yesterday!

Had one of those weekends where you just. Don't. Stop. I had to play a football match, organise a fundraising race night in the pub, go clubbing (well I didn't have to but I wasn't going to sleep anyway), go to London at 5:30am to take a bunch of running coaches around the marathon course to see how their runners were doing.

My dad, who likes to watch from on high, found a new perch.

BTW [personal profile] the_wanlorn is doing the DW Summer of code which is AWESOME and people should go congratulate her.

I am finally watching the rest of BSG! I got horribly annoyed when they killed Starbuck and stopped. Someone please tell me why I am shipping Roslin/Baltar?
