These (yew tree) berries were so perfectly sculpted, they looked like they'd been manufactured.

Same window as before, different direction. Cold and frosty but very clear mornings, this week - perfect for sunrises.

And sunsets, too. )

I'll admit to having doctored this a little, to boost the colour of the sushi and knock back the background. But not all that much. Also, I took this photo in August - but I have been meaning to post it since then. *looks around for the photo cops* *g*

I've decided to do [livejournal.com profile] surreallis's 30 day photo meme. Because why not?

The meme rules and prompts )

I probably won't do the prompts in order, but I was thinking about the first one, 'home', and happened to pass the circus that had come to town, and thought the little caravans surrounding the big top gave a different take on the idea. So. Not a very interesting shot - I'm no good at making large photos look good - I much prefer macros.

Too much preface. Here, have a picture:

pepper: Dilbert cartoon, "Apparently I'm awesome." (Awesome)
Had a delightful day yesterday, and thank you all so very much for all the good wishes and fics and such. :)

I had dinner at a pub with A. Grilled halloumi and red pepper salad, and potato wedges with cheese and mushrooms. Yum. I explained the Snog/Marry/Cliff game to him (you know, the one where you're given three characters and have to decide which you'd snog, which you'd marry, and which you'd push off a cliff). I set him a challenge, and it turns out he'd snog Toni Basil, marry Adam Ant (because they're both equally neurotic and Adam needs someone to look after him), and push Billy Idol off a cliff. Sorry, Billy, you just didn't rate in comparison.

I, on the other hand, was given three characters from Hustle. I decided I'd snog Stacie Monroe (because she's hot), marry Ash "Three Socks" Morgan (partly because he's sweet and extremely loyal and would make sure I was cared for if I got brain damage after stepping out in front of a car for a con that went tragically wrong, but mostly because I want to know the truth about that nickname), and push Mickey Bricks off a cliff (because he's the best con man around, and would already know I was going to do that, and would have worked out a brilliant plan for how to survive. Although he might take revenge, and then I'd be doomed. Hopefully he'd take pity when he realised I had no choice, and I was trying to protect the more vulnerable - than him - members of his team, and plus I'm now married to his best friend).

Damn you, America, and your watching of Leverage instead.

So, if anyone wants an informal game of Snog/Marry/Cliff, let me know - I'll give you three characters, or you can give me three, I don't mind which. I'm easy. :)


Urrrrgh. Stupid female reproductive system.

Cliche meme, snurched from [livejournal.com profile] aelfgyfu_mead, because it looked rather fun.

Bold the clichés you have written, and italicise those you've considered writing.

Just because they're cliches doesn't mean they're BAD! )

ETA: Argh! When arranging a meeting for 15 managers, it's considered only polite to inform the admin staff who're going to have to set it up! Preferably BEFORE people start arriving! *headdesk* "Dear [colleague], I feel like death, do you mind if I go home?" would have been okay, but "Dear [boss], I know my colleague isn't in and you have a meeting for 15 people, and I know it'd leave you without any admin staff, but I feel like death, do you mind if I go home?" just isn't possible.

*stiffens uppper lip and carries on*

pepper: Pepperpot (Perfect icon)
Meme instructions:
1. Reply to this post and I will pick five of your icons
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose if you damn well feel like it.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Aurora asked me about...
...these icons. )

So there you are. They're all made by me, because I'm funny about that. I like to have ones that I won't get confused with other people's (although I have seen the 'still hot' one around the interwebs, but I did say it was snurchable). I've been trying to conquer my need to have the perfect icon every time, because I only have 110 spaces, and that's not quite enough.

Mm yy

1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.

[livejournal.com profile] annienau08 gave me the letter 'f'…

Fifth Doctor, Fran, Frodo, Faith, and Felger. )


Now I must go make carrot cake and think about the letter M.

Meme gakked from [personal profile] holdouttrout - Your Friends Are Not Watching the Same Show You Are (And That's Okay)

Shows I'm watching at the moment:

...You know, just see what [personal profile] holdouttrout said. Particularly the first one. :)

Stargate Atlantis: The Jack Turns Up And Acts Like He Owns The Place Show (extremely rare), and I've caught a few episodes of the Ronon Is Awesome Show.

Doctor Who: The Martha Is Awesome Show (only ran for one season and a couple of specials, but I'm hoping it'll start up again), but mostly the How I Think Rusty Is Doing It Wrong And If I See Another Companion's Family I'm Going To Scream Show.

MacGyver: The How Ridiculous Does RDA's Hair Have To Be Before He Stops Looking Hot? Show. So far I've seen four seasons and the question hasn't been answered yet.

Buffy: The I'm Going To Find Myself Using That Phrase Soon Show, the Willow And Xander Are Just So Cute Show, the Willow And Oz Are Just So Cute Show, the Willow And Tara Are Just So Cute Show, and the Yay Spike Show. Oh, and--very briefly--the Willow And Spike Would Be Just So Cute Show.

Now I'm going to go to watch Serpent's Song (otherwise known as the "Sam and Jack get hot and sweaty in the control room" episode of the Sam And Jack Eyesex Show) for tomorrow's [profile] redial_the_gate.
pepper: Pepperpot (Rooms in my head)
Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (Skip the instrumentals, the remixes and the mashups)
Step 3: Let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

I cheated a little and skipped a couple of artist repeats, 'cause it's just not as fun that way. This is from my little 2gb mp3 player, so it's a different sort of mix to the random selection I got before my proper-size iPod went kablooie. 

ETA: Answers now added.


I think I need a Marion Ravenswood icon. (Which has nothing to do with the song meme, it's just I've been thinking about it.)



I am, in fact, calming up.

pepper: Pepperpot (Squee)

Yes! Oh, yes! *squee* 

No, I'm not squeeing about that Sam/Jack thing*. I am squeeing because Big Bang Theory is coming to UK TV! Woohoo!

This will probably only matter to those of you who are a) in the UK, b) Stargate fans, and c) reading the

[profile] jack_built AU, which is narrowing down the field quite considerably - but what the heck, I'm happy. A was bemused by how I sat up and squeaked when I saw the advert for it, yesterday. And it really doesn't come across well in explanation. Really, really doesn't. :)

Two quotes left from the movie meme yesterday: 

And LeapGate is now open for your commentfics. Get your prompts here, and post fic here. Abyssis, we luvz u!

* Well, okay, I am squeeing because of the Sam/Jack thing - but not right at this moment. Well, just a little bit. *squee!*. And it's going to be a DVD extra! *SQUEE!*

Hello, Burton-on-Trent! Let's RAWK!

Ugh. Sorry, guys, I won't be posting the comedy thing today – a combination of mild food poisoning and three parental visits (both of mine, separately, and his mum) over the weekend left me in a weakened state, fit only for memeage and commenting about Doctor Who.
[personal profile] crazedturkey, [profile] linnet_101, [profile] lady_draco2005, sorry I took so long to post you some questions (in comments on previous post), feel free not to answer them if this meme is, like, so totally five minutes ago. *g*
Answers to questions wot I requested...

Okay, I is done. Am going to ask for no more questions, because I have stuff I must do. Like find a new job, and put together the handover for this one. (Temp contract finally coming to an end in two weeks, very much not wanting to think about that right now.)
