mad_andy: (Blue Dirk and Kai)

The last three weeks have been... interesting, to say the least.

Who knew how hard it was to get a hot cup of tea in the US?

Ups and downs. One long fight with the husband over who I 'should' be spending time with.

Good friends met once more, new people out of the computer, much laughter and fun and discovering that we might be far flung but there are people out there that understand.

I think the food disagrees with me...

Shall i return? Well. The bit that remembers going through airports says no, but in reality.... you just watch me. ;)

Ah, memories. Perhaps I'll even have time to post about some of them.

Y'know, I'm reminded of a line from Dune right now -

'...parting with friends is a sadness, but a place is just a place.'

I'm gonna miss you guys.

Gacked from [ profile] arrys_girlie: - Test your disease knowledge

Heh. - Test your drug knowledge

In my defence for that one, i work with drugs at the surgery so I'm going to know some answers straight away. *Blush*

Anyway. Still having fun, Hank and Nick are here, Kelpie arrived today - so the gang's all here!

Haven't posted for ages, have I?

Well, Rockfic Asheville went like an absolute dream. Better than I could have imagined! I'll post more about it later but suffice it to say... you lot are awesome.

And [ profile] kraftpistole? You are so very, very wrong. Getting close to people can hurt, yes. But being totally alone is even worse. And pushing us away because of someone else is simply being cruel to yourself. Think about it, mate, because you deserve so much better.

New ink. Looks awesome. Feels bloody fucking sore.

...later, guys...

Well - here we are, Rockfic HQ!

Flights and whatnot were about as you'd expect - long, dull, and crowded - but we did get an upgrade to economy plus which at least meant Slay's knees weren't around his ears.

Off to the mall a bit later - just chilling out right now!

Righto, need tea. [ profile] rockfic is learning fast...

I have a headache. That sucks.

And I forgot to put the bin out. Argh! Stupid girl. Oh well, it just means the rubbish will have to fester until we get back - anyone trying to nick our weelie bin is in for a horrible shock. Haha.

There's supposed to be a man coming to look at the kitchen some time between 9 and 12 - hope he turns up soon, there's all sorts of rushing about I still need to do.


Am packed!

We leave at about five-ish, should get to the hotel seven-ish, have dinner, pass out, go to check in desk at crack of sparrowfart tomorrow morning - and shortly after that we'll be at Rockfic HQ! Wheeet!

And now I need to take more pain pills.

Things to do today:

Go down town today and: pick up gift bags. (Wrapping gifts is likely to make customs paranoid should they want a nosey in my case.)
: Post the damn tatt design to Twiz' friend.

Sort out clothes to take.

Clean the ferrets out.

Pick up prescriptions.

Run the hoover round.

Er. Sure there was more than that. Will add to the list as I remember stuff.

ETA: Pick up more rolling papers and filters.

ETA#2: Write down characters in journal for longhand novel work while travelling.

Pinch and a punch for the first of the month and all that.

OMG, we're leaving for Asheville NEXT WEEK.

I'm getting collywobbles.

What if everybody hates me?


Yes, I'm a worrier. Or, to put another way, a panicker.

OK, calm down. Calm. Down.


In other news, I'm working on a new, original story that I'm hoping is going to wind up novel length. Provided that it does, I'm going to submit it to agents and whathaveyou. Thus far it's going pretty well; [ profile] arrys_girlie has been reading the bits and pieces I've written so far and says it doesn't suck. I assume she would tell me if it did.

I've had a couple of ideas bouncing around in my head for a while regarding vet nurses, the Animal Rights community in the UK (and, it must be said, elsewhere) that get so out of hand, and trying to put them together in a way that might make people think. And shake them up a bit. And this is where I have to make a confession...

[ profile] navigatorsghost answered a question I set her about a novel - and made the comment: ...the hero gets the glory and the monster gets the girl...

And boom, there it was in my head. Only there isn't a hero - except, of course, unless you count the main character, a genetically engineered super-soldier/astronaut/slave called Mandrake. Yes, perhaps that idea is a bit hackneyed. But I like to think I've given the story a bit of a different spin...

So yes. Sorry Rathie. But I owe you one yet again!

OMG. Less than a week to Asheville. (Well, this time next tuesday we'll be leaving for the hotel where we'll be spending the night before hitting the airport.) OMFG!

Lookit, three questions and it's a bit like me. Except the bit about love. I don't do that naymore. Except love for friends, o'course. Another Meme! )

And why, you ask, am I taking memes at 0422...? )

And in other news, Slay got dreadfully excited about a music shop in Asheville that does drums as well as guitars. Hey, [ profile] kraftpistole, you hear that? We'll drag you off drum shopping. *Chuckle*

And now, goodfuckingnight.
