Blog post: Strictly Live-Blogging

Check out my latest blog post here! It's me live-blogging last Saturday's episode of Strictly Come Dancing. Fair warning: I know very little about ballroom dancing that I did not learn from Sabrina. My opinions are very uninformed :)

Blog post: Best. Bus Ride. Ever.

New blog post! I was away from the net a bit while [livejournal.com profile] jupiter_star was here for a week, but I am sorta back now. Much fun was had while she was here, such as awesome sushi at OKO Express, heavily discounted salon day (here, lookit the pretty photo!), seeing lots of friends, etc, but there was a special kind of random fun in listening to an old guy play clarinet on the bus to drown out some guy's annoying tinny headphones.
Check out the post, it's got videos :D

So I'm blogging now.

So yeah, I have a blog! I will be blogging about lots of different things, and there may be fiction. Although I'll also post any fiction here, too :) I know I don't post here a lot, and it's partly cos I feel like my day to day life, most of the time, isn't worth writing about, and when it is, it's usually cos something bad happened, and there are comms for that where you don't sound like a whiner. Heh :) I do still read my friends page every day, often multiple times a day, now that I have a new phone and proper mobile internet, so I keep up with what you are all up to :)

Anyway, I wanted to have a 'random stuff' blog, and now I do :) Please, go read my first proper article!

National Gathering


This weekend I was in Aberdeen for LGBT Youth Scotland's annual meet-up, to celebrate the achievements made by LGBT young people this year. Lots of fun was had, and many new friends were made, including some of the Israeli young people here on a visit. I love it when I meet people from other countries, I get to learn so much :)
We had a disco, with the theme of 'your hero'. I mostly did face painting at that, since I'm not much for dancing :) Much fun. And I took part in a workshop about board breaking, where we looked at our issues and the things holding us back, and then smashed through the wooden board with our hands. It was empowering, and I felt exhilarated :)
All in all, a good weekend :)

Birthday wishlist - no obligation, obv.

Okay, so I am addicted to cross-stitch, and I love the Gold Collection by Dimensions. I completed this one after getting it at Creative Stitches (craft expo in Glasgow), and from looking at kits and designs online, I have fallen in love with their butterfly and bird designs. Found a few from other designers too while I was looking. So, this is my Amazon wishlist for my birthday, using that nifty universal wishlist thingy: Link.
Obviously I am only putting it up on the off-chance, and I don't expect anyone to get me anything, but it would be awesome if someone did.

Writer's Block: Something to cry about

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I think it makes sense to only punish corporeal beings. Ghosts are already dead, so...

MS = Drunk

I've encountered bad bus drivers in my time - deliberately missing the stop because you must ring the bell even if you're standing up front clearly waiting to get off; getting out to get groceries while passengers wait on the bus; going far too fast on icy roads, etc. But today, a driver took a corner sharply and a woman fell right off her seat. When the nearest person helped her up (I was quite far back or I would've got up to help), she shouted at the driver for his poor driving, and he answered back, "I'm sorry, you're drunk!" Woman flashes her disability travel card and yells at him some more, because he keeps saying she's drunk. Apparently 'drunk' and 'MS' are the same in Bus Driver Land. *headdesk*

Fic: Time Lords in Floppy Hats (Time Lords from 'Exile', G)

Title: Time Lords in Floppy Hats
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Words: ~1500
Characters: Time Lords #1 and #2 from the Unbound audio, Exile.
Summary: The Doctor has escaped the justice of the Time Lords and hidden away on Earth. Two agents from the Celestial Intervention Agency are sent to retrieve him, but it's not all fun and games searching for a renegade on an alien planet.
A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] who_like_giants Minor/Original Characters Ficathon. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] agapi42 for her brilliant help. The names of the Time Lords are not canonical, I came up with them myself. Tavin is the one played by David Tennant, and Norlow is played by Toby Longworth. Also, I would recommend listening to Exile if you like silliness and aren't squicked by vomit noises. Honestly, it's really funny if you fall into that category. And this will make a fair bit more sense, although I think it's fairly accessible to those who haven't heard it yet.

Or the floral patterned trousers... )
