    @ fishelle - BRAVO, my dear lady. BRAVO. Well done. Your life is excellent.

    My news? Oh, not much. Got my cat back. A small period of adjustment (like everyone in this economy, he's had to down-size somewhat.) He's still kinda confused but he's happy to be with me. And I, with him. Will post pics when I get a chance.

    And now, four hours of MAD MEN, coffee and toast. Life is sometimes not completely horrible.

    @Fishelle - Excellent news! Glad to hear you're getting exhibited

    @Mister Hex - Good to hear you got little fuzzy shit back.

    That's amazing, Fishelle! Congrats!

    hex: I'm sorry, I was away for a while. What happened to your cat? Did it go missing?! I'd get really worried if that happened to our cats. Cthulhu is scared of his own shadow (Ironic name, I know) and Vera needs daily medication. I'd be agonising like crazy!

    Myself, I've been doing a lot of film and photo shoots over the year and just got back from the latest photo shoot. I was half-submerged with another model for a romantic moonlit shot among the seaweed. She was supposed to be dead, but it didn't work with the area we ended up shooting in. We were all of us shaking with cold as we slowly made our way back to shore in our underpants over the slippery rocks and seaweed in near pitch black, but I think the photos came out quite well. Can't wait to see the finished shot in about a week's time. The photographer is young but very talented and is studying to become a cinematographer right now.

    HOORAY FISHELLE!!!!!!


    Been a bit crazy. Still at home and I've been doing an okay job of fighting off some severe depression.

    But this weekend a friend came by to visit. First he assured me that an e-mail I sent to a person was "the best thing I could have said", which...was good to get an assurance. Then we went to an English Goods store and bought some scotch pies, crisps and branston pickle, headed over to my local for a nice meal and watched some funny videos. Was good to get out of the house and out of my head a bit. Though I wish I had more of those Pickled Onion crisps.

    And today I watched Cabin in the Woods, which provided some much needed smiles and for dinner I made up a back bacon butty with HP sauce. Delicious.

    So, small things. But I smiled a good amount this weekend. And christ, did I need it.

    @ MaGNUS - Magnus, ya bastard! Good to see ya! It's a long story about the cat but it has a happy ending so who cares.

    @ oldhat - you're the best. If you ever want to punch something (and I know you do), please make it not me. Unless it'd make you smile and then I guess it's okay. ("Pain don't hurt", as a wise man once said, in a movie. "I used to fuck guys like you in prison" is a line from the same movie. My alleged wisdom is tainted by horribleness.)

    @Fishelle: YOU ARE ON THE SAME LIST AS ... OH GOSH THAT IS FUCKING AWESOME.

    @Hat, Glad some small things are going well. That's KEY.

    As for me, I made brownies and guac. And I went to a figure drawing session yesterday and while GOOD LORD I AM RUSTY, it felt nice to get back into it. Now if only I can sing regularly/finish the projects I want to.

    I'm not very good about posting in here, despite believing that it'd do me a world of good to focus on the positives.

    BUT LET'S DO THIS. I have the next two days off (after some really shitty days at work, so even better), and tomorrow night I'm going to see Stolen Babies and a couple really great local bands in concert.
    I've been slowly recovering from a major breakdown this month (which resulted in another, incredibly similar breakdown last week), and I think I'm getting somewhere close to being on an even keel again. So that's good.

    Flecky: I'm writing a note to send.

    @Hex, thank you my dear. Thanks for responding in kind to my mopey shit. And the many wise sayings of Roadhouse are endless. And thankfully I'll be back to punching things in a couple of weeks, so you aren't needed for that. <3

    @dork, yeah, the small good things are really key.

    @littlepurplegoth rant away, my dear. :)

    More little things. While looking through some old family albums I found this picture of my Grandmother that may be my all time favourtie photo of her. She looks slightly punkish and badass.


    Other thing is that I now seem to be in to Supernatural. I started season one last night and now I'm on episode 9 and can't stop.

    @Oldhat, that show is dangerous. Oh god. It's pure fluffy diabetically delicious sugary crappy crap. I BLASTED through several seasons of it before finally losing interest. And I do mean several.

    Also I had watched Gilmore Girls so the fact that there was a character who was named Dean who was not played by the guy named Dean was REALLY confusing.

    Also people love making gifs of that show because of how ridiculous it is. Here are some for all of you:







    Man, tumblr makes finding gifs WAY too easy.

    Right now it's still kinda sorta taking itself seriously, but I'm in to it enough to burn through several episodes without really noticing and have already developed a crush on Dean. So...yeah.

    Am just wondering why everyone in that show seems to live and work with REALLY dim lighting. There was a scene where bugs cut the power to a house and I was surprised that anyone noticed that the lights were off.

    @nelzbub: I love Mr. Moorcock, yes indeedy!

    21-days-clean: Still in rehab. I've been "let off my leash", which means I don't have to be escorted around "the village" - I'm not a number, I'm a free-man!

    Who is the new number 2?

    My bedroom number is three. Fifteen of us exist in Nelson House, a cramped old inn converted into a structure where a dirty cup can initiate arguments of sonic destruction.

    I am Three of Fifteen - Resistance is futile! (Sad Borg wankery)

    @Flecky- posted book last week, should be with you soon, though the Dutch postal service can be a little slow.

    Hope you're enjoying your new found freedom. Autumn can be very nice out in the sticks.

    Any idea how long you're there for? Can send more if need be.

    Just about to head out the door to pick up my employment package. Finally landed a job after an awful, torturous summer of unemployment. It's just an hourly gig at Starbucks, but I couldn't have been happier to pick up the phone this morning.

    Had a great time last night seeing Stolen Babies. The two openers were bands I already loved, so it was one of the best shows I've been to in a while (despite the sound guy being an idiot).

    I cut my own hair the night before yesterday, and I did an okay job. I finished and thought "hey! this looks kinda Mia Wallace, that's awesome" but last night I realized I may have been subconsciously going for the-lady-in-this-video's look:

    Which is even better; I'd rather be enthusiastically playing an electric drum kit while jumping around in an evening gown than having an OD and telling bad jokes about tomatoes.

    I slept in way late today, but all I really have to do is some errands (including mailing off a card to flecky!). So that's really nice.

    @ littlepurplegoth - ask me about Stan Lee one day. Or Jack Kirby. Or DC Comics. GO AHEAD. ASK ME.

    Your rants are fine and you're right - we're all marvellous people. (EXCEPT STAN LEE!)

    @nelzbub: Recieved the book and cards. Thank ye kindly, good man!

    Today they've had me doing therapy - with horses. Equine stuff, like some weird whisperer-in-recovery. My world is getting stranger by the day. 23-days-clean; my head is not exploding so much and thoughts about nuking the countryside etc. are waning. I reckon I'll be here for three months minimum, maybe six.

    Hug my leg, Squirrel of Stroud!

    @oldhat & dorkmuffin: I watch Supernatural from time to time and I love how non-seriously they take themselves. Even when they are in the middle of a serious dramatic story arc, there's bound to be and episode or two that are really goofy. I also like that they are fully aware that their main audience are nerdy women and embrace that fact. I would like for them to have more kick ass female characters that stay alive, but considering that the show is banking on the fact that the two main characters are hot men to be drooled over, it doesn't altogether surprise me.

    And I have vile happy huggy things to say, but I'm going to create an october thread or something.
