Sometimes karma is fucking laser guided.

What I do at work

Today I found a spider at work in the back room. Not just any spider, though. We have these locally (warning: what do you think you're going to see when you click that link). I personally don't have a problem with spiders. This was way too good a chance to pass up, though. I gently picked it up with a jumper. And put it on my boss's work area :)

The screaming was funny.

Have you been watching tv? I have been watching ALL THE TV this year it is great. Once Upon a Time and Terra Nova make me so fucking happy you have no idea. Also Person of Interest (Ben! Back on my telly!), the much-improved Boardwalk Empire and Grimm, which I am mostly watching to see Seymour from Burn Notice play Wolf from the 10th Kingdom.

Yes, ino I keep saying my life is crazy at the moment but it rly is. I was in Ireland for the football final again (we're not talking about the match) and
  • we got kicked out of a kebab shop (turns out you can't make demeaning Father Ted references at bouncers in Ireland because they actually saw it
  • my friend fell off the top bunk, climbed back in, went back to sleep, woke up the next morning without a mark on her, asking 'so who fell out of bed last night?'
  • we had to forcibly eject two guys from the room at 4am. When our goalkeeper kicks you, you stay kicked. Also I managed to drag a guy right across the room. Still can't work out how I got the door open.
Last night was my friend's engagement party. Okay backstory: last time I went to visit her a few weeks ago, I slept with one of her boyfriend's friends (it was a costume party, he was dressed as Han Solo this is like catnip) so I was kind of looking forward to seeing him again! Immediately when I saw my friend, she and her boyfriend solemnly sat me down and said 'he's not coming. He crashed his bike into a tree yesterday and broke three ribs'. My thoughts in order:
  • Oh God I truly am some kind of grotesque freakshow
  • I kind of admire that kind of dedication to getting out of awkwardness?
OH MY GOD WHAT IS MY LIFE EVEN (I should probably add that there is some PMS involved in this thought process).

Sport Overdose.

I have just shouted myself hoarse coaching a bunch of twelve year old girls. We couldn't find them a girls team to play against so they mixed in with the boys. Every one of them is better than all the boys on that team. I feel awesome. Also come September I may have a second job going into the school to coach them. Also also my own game is tomorrow :D:

I did two races in the past couple of weeks. There was a two mile handicap which is going to go down as the only race I will ever win in my life (19:47! When did I start ten minute miling?). Hilariously it's the one thing in the club that my dad never won. Mine is the BIG cup :D

On Sunday I did a 5k in 30:46. I sprinted the last 200m and did not make it out of the finishing funnel, taking a little nap. Face down. In the dirt. My friends responded to this with "There's another race in three weeks! We'll get you under 30 by then :)" I love/hate those guys.

EDIT: Meant to put this up last week. I love my job.

In the past couple of weeks I have broken my printer, my phone, my bag and some muscles in my leg. Fortunately I fixed everything bar the phone (shiny new phooooooooooooooone!)

I would watch the fuck out of this spin-off. Also the frat boys on the wall one, and a Varys/Littlefinger road trip.

I have been spending too much time reading various texts from last night, especially the A-Team and X-Men ones. But why are all the ones that apply to me Magneto ones?

I was deeply fucking amused by how every time in the movie when Magneto got a little crazier, the Irish accent got a little more noticeable. Seriously, by the last scene it was 'Wheeeeeeee let's kill everything! Ciarrai abu!'

Come on you guys it's only £300 each! We get in there. And then. Then we strike from the inside.

You guys. There are lady BFFS. In a comic book movie. WHAT IS GOING ON. Oh and at least one of them appears to be awesome.

I actually started reading Thor recently, just to see what the craic was. It's good! Of course, I don't actually give a damn about Thor in the slightest, but I love everyone else, especially Loki and Volstagg.

I spent the weekend in Derbyshire with a bunch of runners. I used to say runners were all lightweights. They are only MOSTLY lightweights. Sometimes they are sneaky and get everyone else drunk and make them spill who they have crushes on and then say they can do something about that and ARGH. Also, Derbyshire is MADE OF MUD. PAST MY ANKLES. I seriously had to use the powerwasher to clean my trainers.

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.

Why yes, I am a terrible Manics fan

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

I can see my house from here!

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.

Oh Goddamnit

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.

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 have this one really really competitive friend. She is perfectly nice! Until it's me vs her and then it is like some kind of deathmatch. We used to play hurling on a team together and caused each other more injuries than I ever got from all the teams we played put together. Even the really dirty ones. Up until this weekend, I had never played against her in a proper match. Then we brought more players than they did and they had to borrow a couple, including me for the second half.

And then I ran rings around her and it was so, so satisfying. Even the bit where she threatened to headbutt me if I scored and sulked when I did. And I maybe sort of broke her finger a bit.

Oh, also! To kill time before our team meeting earlier, my friend who just started working at a locksmith's told me all about how to crack cheap safes. It was awesome.

How awesome was Lost? )

1) I am REALLY drunk


2) My football team was in the local St Patrick's day parade today.

3) I think we may have been on lolbrit channel four news?

4) We gave Jon Snow a shitload of leaflets

5) I was visited by the green fairy

6) She dumped green glitter in my hair.

7) And on the floor

8) I get annoyed with this one friend, because despite me being better at hurling, she is better at football, which is what we play nowadays

9) And flirting.

10) And we have the same taste in men

11) Except today a rly hot guy flirted with me!


12) Who told me he was 40

13) And divorced

14) And had two children

15) I could probably handle two of those, but not all three.

It turns out you can, in fact, have a conversation about the zombie apocalypse IRL! You just have to start talking to a couple of teenies perusing gas masks in the Army and Navy shop.

Also, this is getting a tad out of hand.

She says, on her way out the door to a French flag burning party.
