Considering that LJ decided to delete my post the one time I actually wanted it to ask me to restore from a saved draft, I'll start this again. Though I had been picking at that post for four days so I suppose it's just as well that it got nuked.

I have a new television. I've been after one for a while, although the one that I had worked just fine - I've been hankering for a HD TV since they first started becoming reasonably affordable and now I have one >o<; I decided on this one, because the price was excellent for what I was getting. Having an Xbox 360 I wouldn't have ordinarily bothered with a DVD player but when I try marathoning DVDs on my Xbox it tends to start disliking it and starts vibrating and making a buzzing sound. It doesn't seem to affect the DVD but the noise is alarming, and at least this way I'm not fiddling around with buttons to swap the connections over to my Xbox when I want to put a DVD on.

I've started playing Minecraft. Why? I'm not entirely sure. Call it curiosity combined with boredom. It's proving to be quite fun so far, though I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with it so it's more of a way to pass the time. I managed to fall in lava three times today before I realised that I didn't even know why I was mining obsidian, I was just doing it. I haven't been brave enough to turn the monsters on, but one odd thing has happened. I spawned in the Taiga biome, and got pretty lucky with where I decided to dig in. My rather large underground fortress (which I fondly nicknamed the Mines of Moria) is attached to a wellspring on one side and a very, very large carvern on the other which still has some bits that need exploring. I had to signpost it so I wouldn't forget the way out. Since it's cold enough outside that the water freezes, I have a sugar cane farm in my cave, and the oddest thing that has happened in there was my coming to harvest and seeing a strange black shape moving around in the water. I had no idea what it might be, and just about freaked out when I saw this flopping about.

A squid. A squid. Indoors. In one of my sugar cane pools.

What else what else... My sleeping pattern is buggered to all hell again, I got up at gone 6pm today to some dirty looks off my mother and a demand to know what was wrong with me. Nothing is wrong with me I just happen to enjoy staying up all night. It's not as if I'm missing anything during the day anyway.

I'll be using my alertness tonight to finally catch up on all the writing I have to do, because the deadline for the [ profile] aph_fluffathon fics I need to do is closer than I thought it was. I also have four RPs to reply to. Erk.

I've probably stated most of this in other, previous journals but I'll go ahead and bring it all together here, it's been a while since I wrote anything more than a few sentences long and I do like to think that some of you don't only watch me for my fanfics. Pfh, I know some of you don't, but I'm in one of those dramatic moods today.

A few new things have happened recently, the least important but most expensive being the acquisition of a new Xbox 360 which I've been getting good use out of. An email came today informing me of my Xbox LIVE being renewed soon so I can look forward to £40 being removed from my bank account, whey. I'm not even sure why I have LIVE anymore but I wouldn't like to not have it, if that makes any sense at all. Since I was unable, for some reason, to transfer my saves over to my new Xbox I've had to start all my games again, which I don't really mind as such, it's just a slight inconvenience for the few games that I was very near to the end of after quite a number of hours playing (namely Final Fantasy XIII and Eternal Sonata).

I also dug the old PS2 out of the loft which still works despite being ten years old and being unused for five years, however I only have two games to play on it at the moment - Okami and Kingdom Hearts. Any recommendations for others?

The most important thing that's happened lately has got to be my starting my internship with Bridge House Publishing. I haven't yet been given the initial email to allow me to set up everything, but I'm excited to start everything and will give some updates as I'm able, as soon as I'm able. Fifteen months.. it's going to be interesting, that's for sure.

This week I've not been very well. It's shocking how long a stomach bug can affect me for, but I was ill once on Monday morning and it's been kicking me in the arse ever since. Just when I'm getting better from that (after managing to lose 4lbs in three days, hurr) the whole being female thing kicks in and I have an annoying infection on my upper right eyelid probably thanks to being run down. Loads of fun.

In other news, my sister's arse of a boyfriend (who has been becoming more of an arse in recent months, he wasn't always that way) has finally broken up with her, over the phone. While he was in Wales. I'm not impressed. She was absolutely devastated and if I ever see him again it'll be too soon. I'm not the kind of person to wish ill on anyone but I hope they don't stay friends because she deserves better. She seems to be okay now, more or less, from the crying last night but there'll probably be a few more tears at some point when it really hits home. To be honest I saw it coming for a while, I think it was just that neither of them really knew how to break up with the other. Amy didn't want to and I don't know, it seemed that her boyfriend was just being a coward about it and trying to make her break up with him by acting like a jerk and being distant. I can't stand it when guys do that. Or when anyone does.

On Tuesday I got a text off my dad telling me he'd been in A&E since 1pm that day and it turns out he'd been rushed there from work in an ambulance after the pain from his kidney stones got so bad he was ill at work. Got his CAT scan moved forward by a month and he had it that day, and it appears that he has six (I think) kidney stones, five of them not being too large and then one that's 18mm. Probably that one that was causing all the pain. So he's been off work since then, though if I know my dad he's still been working from home. Workaholic that he is.

Aside from that, everyone in the house is on a diet except me and my step-dad has finally realised he's overweight after we've been telling him for years that he needs to lose about 20lbs. Had to come some time, I'm just glad we don't need to nag him about it anymore.

On the writing front, I've done the research for one of my fills for the USxUK ficathon, and I know what my backstory is for the other. As for Jack, a little more research needs doing into that, but thanks to [ profile] amael_elen and her prodding I seem to have got my writing spirit back.

In other random news, I've started up a new character on a PC game called Diablo 2, which is a game I use to play all the damn time in college with my friends. I don't know how much use I'll get out of her but I've gone with the trusty fire sorceress as usual, and have somehow (again, as usual) managed to turn her into a tank. I don't know how I always manage to turn mages into tanks but I do.

I think that's it. Well done if you got this far xD

As my good friend [ profile] spottacus2 would say...



Óskar managed a smile, then a laugh – a thin, weak sound that rattled through his chest until he was forced to cough.

“I know why you’re here... Although, I do not know what you believed it would achieve... I am clearly in no state-”

“You owe me money, Iceland,” the man snapped. “We had an agreement, and you backed out on it. Did you actually think that I’d just let that lie?”


My nation!sims keep having babies. Wtf.

I was desperate for something to do, what can I say. I ended up loading up Sims 3 and started off small, just making Alfred, Matthew, Arthur, and Peter. However, I kept going, and soon Gilbert, Ludwig, Kiku, Heracles, Toris, Feliks, Raivis, Eduard, Roderich, Elizabeta, Vash, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Tino, Berwald, Antonio, Lovino, Feliciano, Ukraine, Ivan, and Natalia had also joined the neighbourhood. I decided to take a few photos and introduce you to a few of my Hetalia Sims~

So, in the end, I didn't have to buy Sims 3. I got it bought for me by my daddeh, who is awesome. I've been playing it for... probably a week, which is why I haven't updated at all o.o It's very addictive, if you like that kind of game. Very different from Sims 2, as well.

I've been getting along otherwise, answered my first call at the Samaritans, and I went to see Bill Bailey last night. That was rather epic. I was in absolute stitches and I daresay I needed the laugh. Planning to go next year, if he comes back to Manchester.

In other news, the construction of my cosplay outfit has begun - got the socks. Not much, but it's a start! Hopefully I'll get back to writing soon, but you can't rush these things, can you. I'd hate to give a half-arsed piece because my heart wasn't really in it.

Well, back to Sims =D

In a manner of speaking. Not sure why I disappeared. Possibly the re-arrival of Sims 2 into my life. I started playing, and have now modded the game to hell and have so much custom content it's a wonder it still works. Oh well. I'm sure I'll get bored of it soon enough but for now it's keeping me entertained, which is why no new chapters have been forthcoming... They will be, soon, because Jasper will start to whine and I hate it when he does that =P

But really, there's no point in writing when I don't feel like it, because it won't be any good anyway... So if anyone but Jasper and Robin are reading it, they'll just have to wait.

I've started a new neighbourhood on Sims, and am actually not cheating. I've boolpropped the hell out of all the others but this one has stayed clean so far. So far, she said with a knowing wink... lol.
