Weekend of mostly win :)

Epic weekend of epic. I realise that I'm posting this three days after the event but the epic has stayed with me :)

Had a nice chilled Friday evening of Skyrim-tastic times, I do love stabbing people in the head :) then an early start to head to Bristol. I had three house viewings booked, one in a nice area but if I wanted it I'd have to pay 6 months rent plus deposit in advance, one in a nice area but none of the advance paying crap, and one in a not nice area but very cheap and looked like a nice place.

Whilst driving down, each of the nice location viewings were cancelled as they'd been let that morning from viewings. Whilst this in no way the letting agents fault, it annoyed me :( went to crappy location one, as whilst nice, just not nice enough to make me want to live there. So headed out of Bristol to visit Mark and Mary (Mark of Mr Marcellus fame). Was a really nice afternoon with the Fitt's and Jamhead :)

Headed off to Dave and K8's later in the afternoon, the tomtom had stopped working at that point so the trip from Bristol to Aldershot was a tad entertaining with various wrong turns. General frothing and sociamalising. Sunday was weapons practice and picnic in a place full of grass and trees. Goblin is an awesome game :) got a few decent hits on people a lot better than me, got hit in the face a lot, I'm not entirely sure why people kept doing that but meh :)

More frothing back at Dave's, decided I blatantly wasn't going to make it back to work due to levels of sleepiness so had a day off on the Monday for pub lunch and visiting K8 at her work, possibly the most beautiful work place/grounds I've ever seen.

My weekend was win. I have a massive amount of keen for the Moot. Life is good :)

Shamless plug

So yeah, not really followed through on my plan to post more but meh, time has mostly been take up with nanowrimo at the moment.

Life's good, feeling really happy at the moment. Have great friends, mymindcrime and vix_spes to name but a few. Job is kinda crappy, but you can't have everything and at least it's enabling me to save some money.

Anyway, reason for post, would massively appreciate some feedback at nat_nano. I hit half way on the 50k aim today so I'm feeling pretty proud. I know I have a long way to go in only a week and a half, but I'm hoping that I can manage it. But any feedback would be really appreciated, picky as you like is fine. Suggestions on possible plot, characters, all gratefully received.

Big thanks and hugs in advance!

A lot of my friends are having really tough times lately. And I know I've been feeling a little down with the weather changing and the shorter days.

So I figured a love meme was in order. Comment with your name and then go through and tell other people why you love them. Or just that you love them. Whatever works.






Post is unlocked so feel free to link around.

back after a looooooooong absence

so, yeah, wow - been a while. Lack of an internet connection does that to you I suppose. Finally got virgin installed where I'm now living though so I no longer have to rely on the few and far between times when I steal Al and Luggage's internet!

Right, brief update. Graduated, currently unemployed, trying and failing to get a job, been bullied into playing a d+d game - loving it, will then be playing a Serenity RP game with Al, Luggage (possibly), Lee and a few others after Lee's D+D game has finished. Hopefully playing the Serenity RP game will get me keen for the LARP system. Planning to play the new Odyssey system and actually play instead of monster Outcast.

Finally managed to get keen, well - keener, about my new LT character. Was on a bit of a down after having two characters killed within 3 events. But Hides-in-Crowds is fun to play especially after the ritual of win. Am not awesome quite yet, but am definitely getting there.

It might be two weeks late, but here we go for the Gathering:

HOT
Tribe
Lee and Al, both absolutely awesome
Becoming part of the Pack, despite failing twice
No aberrancy
Getting to know Vipers properly as well as Harts and Dragons
Outrunning muggers and then collapsing by a unicorn fire after going through their walls, they were a bit startled :)
GOD
Becoming a full marshal
general concept of an elemental-were
getting makes sorted
more silver weapons
Guilds being full of win, Scouts especially
Kender distraction team
Poppy, nuff said
Life essential plands of WIN!
Corona Corvidae, bless
Sal and Jules
Scrolls of insta-pickmeup :)
Black Hand guys

NOT
were fail, twice
muggers
not knowing some people IC
having to track someone down IC who OOC I knew couldn't help, three hours wasted
my faction not roleplaying
jackals in general
not enough time to marshal
Being screwed over by the 95th before they realised I was Tribe
No Tremaine :(

Generally was a good weekend, and am now keen for the sanctioned events. Just need to get an IC invite to the Harts and I'll be set :)

will likely post more now, will get moaned at if I don't.

Writer's Block: Deal or No Deal

What's on your list of dealbreakers when it comes to romantic relationships?


Smokers and people who cheat on me. That's pretty much it really!

Writer's Block: More Island Time

You're packing your bag for that other desert island—the one with no electricity—what 5 books do you take with you?


ooooo that's hard considering my insanely large book collection.

I think probably;
1. Dante's Divine Comedy
2. Dune, Frank Herbert
3. Pride and Prejudice, Austen (I'm a girl, of course I love that book!!!)
4. One of my books of the Crusades, I have a few so not sure which!
5. War and Peace, Tolstoy

I did think about the LOTR all in one volume book but decided against, the movies have put me off the books a bit.

EDIT: come to think of it, the Complete Works of Shakespeare that's sitting on a shelf above my head would probably replace P+P :)
