I appear to have some sort of home delivery curse. We had a sofa take nearly 3 months to turn up. Food delivery folk need to call us for directions every time we order, because google maps doesn't know our street exists, most sat nav systems direct deliveries up the lane, which is only a means of access to our building on foot, and some ordinance survey maps have our street name spelt wrong (oddly, this never confuses postmen or courier services). And now the new laptop I have ordered isn't coming on the day it was meant to be delivered for a totally unknown reason because the message they left asked me to call them back on a phone number that is not actually a valid phone number. And no one else seems to have any record of my order. Aaaaargh.

So I'm falling back on my old coping mechanism - a random picspam of hot boys.

Hello, boys )

Yum. That made me feel much better.


ETA: *pets LJ on the head* Poor LJ. Maybe one day some overenthusiastic fangirls will take down Putin just to make you stable once more.

ETA2: Apologies for momentary cut failage! *hits html with hammers*

It really shouldn't be possible for so many things to break in such a short space of time. And it definitely DEFINITELY shouldn't be possible for two ovens to break in the same way in the space of two years. And yet in such a short space of time I had forgotten just how many meals we eat rely on having a working oven. Well, more frying and boiling and grilling and microwaving recipes shall be learned or rediscovered over the next few days!

In happier news, I found this article very interesting - I think of it as "fandom: older than you think." (Also, more back-up for the argument that girls are not "ruining" fandom; we bloody started it in the first place.)

In related, but depressing, news - Internet troll jailed for 18 weeks.

And in crafting news, I've been featured in some more etsy treasuries, which you can see here, and my Inception cross stitch continues to trundle on apace. Click for cross stitch pics! (Try saying that ten times fast) )

First of all, my thoughts are with all my London peeps - hope you're all safe and sound and un-looted. *hugs*


My own life is being a tad unfun at the moment. Were I able to look at it objectively, I'm sure I'd actually be quite impressed at the world for the varied and imaginative ways it has come up with to frustrate and upset me, but as it is I'm just generally grumpy. In order to spare you all the boredom of reading me moan about my life I'd usually just picspam my blues away but I've got about a bazillion (well, eight actually) half compiled picspams on the go and am unsure which one I should focus on with my time that I really ought to be spending doing more productive things. But as my flist are fantastic enablers of wasting time on the internet, I thought I'd ask you which you'd rather see. So here are some very random themes I have been contemplating.

[Poll #1768097]
Despite all my woe, my cross stitch seems to be going very well indeed. I am deeply suspicious of it. I'm sure it has some cunning plan to annoy me tucked up its sleeve...

Oh, LJ. You poor beleaguered thing. It'd be nice if you could hold things together for longer than about 15 minutes at a time. Maybe this time it's back for the long haul. I feel uninformed and deprived of pretty things without my flist, it's a tragedy.

I'm trying to recreate as much of my flist as possible over on dreamwidth, if you're there and I haven't found you yet, please leave me a nudge in the right direction, or add me yourself - [personal profile] anonymityblaize. I think LJ will remain my primary internet home for the time being, but I want to be prepared to jump ship if that becomes necessary.

And I have dreamwidth codes if anyone needs them, just ask. Anon commenting should be on for this post if you're having trouble staying logged in.

I had thoughts on stuff that came out of comic con, but, other than some serious flailing over Community casting news, I seem to have forgotten it all since I could last make LJ bend to my will.

I also have thoughts on the news but given that there are many people on facebook and twitter saying things about Norway, Hackgate, Amy Winehouse, and/or Somalia that are making me want to get a bit punchy I'm going to keep those opinions to myself and hopefully avoid all fist fights, literal or otherwise.

Finally saw the final Harry Potter film, and cried through most of it, as I expected I would. On the whole I think it was fantastic - I just wish the early movies could have been less craptastic so that I could have a dvd marathon one day. I suppose at least they got all the casting right - those kids have grown up remarkably well. Neville was always my favourite in the books and I think I might have started a riot in the cinema if they had messed up Neville's BAMF moment, but instead they actually managed to make movie!Neville even more badass than book!Neville which was all kinds of fantastic for me. And dammit, Matthew Lewis, stop making me feel like a total perv. Most Triumphant Emergence From Puberty indeed. And Rickman was amazing, as always. And McGonagall! Oh, Dame Maggie you are a national treasure. Sorry, my thoughts are somewhat disconnected apparently. Short version - loved it, even though I have been deeply critical of the movies up until now.

And here's some more cross stitch progress. I am rather excited now that Arthur is mostly done, and you can even see most of the guy falling away behind him. And I've reached both the right and left hand edges now. It's moving on quite quickly. Hurrah!

Liklihood of me murdering a builder: rising.

Ways in which this wee cross stitch makes me smile: many.

I am so not close to catching up on anything, let alone the internet. All is chaos and I cannot even find a black sharpie in my flat. I own about six of them. I've found two brown ones, a purple one and a yellow one (yellow! why do yellow marker pens even exist?), but no black ones. Madness. I've got a bajillion things to get on with in the real world, and about four crafty projects I haven't even posted here yet, and yet I've somehow found time to compile about 70 pictures of hot men smoking for that picspam I am totally not doing. My priorities are a mess.

On the other hand, the Inception cross stitch is coming along quite nicely, so there's that.

So, five days with minimal access to the internet seems to do weird things to my head. I am a data junkie, it's appalling. But now that BT have replaced a THIRD section of busted wiring hopefully our landline will hold it together for longer than a few months this time. And if O2 could find a way to persuade 3G signals to penetrate the apparently hefty walls of my building then I would actually be able to communicate with the outside world with all my stupid devices just like their bloody adverts claim. Anyway...

Just five days away has left me with a lot to catch up on, and a backlog of things to post, but on the upside I did get a lot of cross stitching done the past few days so you can actually see some bits of Arthur now. Hurrah!

Internet: borked once more. Will reply to all comments and messages as soon as I can. Let me know if I'm missing anything awesome going on!

Pet Shop Boys and Take That gig: spectacular, weird, brilliant and exhausting. Will post my thoughts proper once I have an internet connection that is not cobbled together from rusted wire and wishful thinking.

Inception cross stitch: coming along nicely. Have lots of pics of my progress to post, again, whenever non-dial-up speeds are achieved.

Birthday: was lovely. Thanks to all who sent messages and b'day wishes.

This bottle of Prosecco: nearly all drunk. Yum yum yum.
