Spent the last hour or so browsing for Torchwood icons.  Only found a handful I really liked, and most of them were from [profile] inconceivable_m, a fantastic icon comm.

There are no spoilers here ~ I've just put cuts in so people don't have to bother reading if they don't want to  :)

I've really felt the need to spam today, haven't I?  *shrugs*

I really ought to go to bed.  I have to be up at 5.30am tomorrow as I'm opening up the building.  But I'm not tired.  I ache quite a bit as I ran around a lot playing tennis tonight ~ mostly because Ella's sense of direction, although greatly improved, isn't great  ;)  Plus the last few nights I've been having SPN sessions and I can't go to bed as I've not yet had my nightly dose of Dean & Sam  ;)

Big hugs to [profile] dizzyblonde3 who keeps me sane at work!  I've uploaded your userpics for you, but I'm saddened that you didn't want any Rodney ones  :(  I will convert you yet  ;)

Off to watch HellHouse now ... cos that'll really help me sleep .........

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who offered suggestions about The List ~ all access to it is now friends only and I have changed all the direct links ~ and yeah, I do feel better about it all now  :)  

Went to another fireworks show last night, which was bliss for me going to two in one week!  It wasn't as amazingly awesome as the one last week, but then this weeks was supposed to just be a bonus one for us locals, so I didn't expect it to be!  Still, it was pretty good and the ending was damn cool  ~ everyone was very happy!  :)

Today The Boy and I are supposed to be going to an Open Day ..... but it's raining quite a lot at the moment  :/    I kinda promised I'd go so I do feel obliged .... I guess I better take my coat.

No SG1/SGA today?!  Hell, I didn't know that till I logged on this morning frantically searching for the episodes  :(    Gah.  Good job I'm currently re-obsessed with Numb3rs!  ([profile] delgaserasca you have a lot to answer for ..... thank you!)  Only 3 weeks till Season 3 starts - yay!   Ooh, anyone know when Supernatural Season 2 starts?  I tired to find out by looking on Wiki but ended up seeing a little spoiler so I stopped looking  :/

Also, I'm trying out File-Forge (again) ~ anyone tried/used this before?  Any comments on it??  AND FOR THE 3RD TIME IT FAILED.

Have a good weekend all  :)

Of course it was too good to be true.  I thought I had a respite of a couple of weeks before the madness of a new huge project at work swallowed me up, but nope, first day in after completing the last mammoth piece of work and already I have had to start on the next.  Just waiting now for the adrenalin to kick in and carry me through - either that or I'm just going to have to get really fat on cake  :) 

Tried to watch SGA 2.11 (The Hive) the other night but the same thing happened like the 2 SPN episodes I mentioned in an earlier post - plays fine on the computer, no problems at all, but when I transfer to CD to watch on the TV, it's all one big blurry, multi-coloured mess  :/    Anyone know why?  It's annoying - I like watching all my stuff on my large TV, not my computer - fussy, yeah, but hey, what's the point having a huge TV otherwise  ;) 

I managed several miles on the bike at the gym yesterday (along with all the other stuff I did) but I still can't get the hang of the stepper.  WHY?  It's bloody frustrating and a little embarrassing - I see other people on there doing it fine - me, I just look like an idiot and have to give up. 

Mmm ... suppose I should be getting on with this project as I'm at work right now!  :P 


PS ... I love this icon, which is by [profile] crecd060   :)

Boy, am I tired.  I've spent the last couple of days just wanting to keel over.  I think the adrenalin that's carried me through the last couple of weeks has finally run out - the piece of work that has had me flat out is finished and ready for Monday, so I have nothing to do except fall down.  What a nice feeling  :) 

Perhaps the fact I'm so tired meant my guard was a little lower than usual today - I got a bit mauled by a client this afternoon.  Nothing too bad, though my arms looked pretty bloody at the time - I sure bleed well!.  Now I'm all cleaned up it's just cuts and scratches, with a pretty bruise on my left arm.  Meh - not very attractive for t-shirt weather.  

I heard "Higher" by Jackie Wilson on the radio at work today and was thinking to myself it would be a good vid song.  Took me until the first couple of lines had been sung to remember I'd already vidded to it!  :P   See - tired  ;) 

I've seen up to 2.10 of SGA and 1.16 of SPN .... I'm so looking forward to seeing HellHouse - don't know anything about the episode, just heard from a couple of people that it's good, really good, so hopefully I'll get time to watch it this weekend.  Enjoyed Aurora too, which I finally saw last night - McKay was so funny how he kept crossing his arms when he flitted in and out of the virtual reality - made him look just like a genie!  :D 

Tomorrow I'm going to treat myself to some Castlepoint and some Nero's and some cake - I've earnt it  :)

So I started my McKay vid!  Then I stopped.  Meh.  Should've known after such a long break it wasn't going to be easy.  Still this song/vid has been in my head for weeks, so you'd think it'd be pretty straightforward to just transfer it, wouldn't you?  Nope.  Rather than get too frustrated with it I stopped.

Then I figured it had been a while since I actually made a vid, so perhaps I should just play around a bit, make a silly one (now that's something I can do!) and practise a bit.  So I started making this other vid, and it was great!  Well. it wasn't "great", but you know what I mean, I was happy with it, it was flowing so well, and I was about two thirds through when I read an email that just arrived and bam.  No more.  The email made me feel - dunno, something not great - and now I can't finish the second vid.  Not tonight, anyway, which is a shame cos I wanted to post it here.  I will finish it tomorrow.

Instead, I'm off to spend some quality time with Dean and Sam  :)

I posted some packages this morning - hope they bring a smile to a few peoples faces  :)

I am now as obsessed with SPN as I am with SGA!   Though I don't have any desire at all to vid to it.  I am, however, ready to start vidding to SGA - first up will be a Rodney vid that's been in my head for ages. 

After that - on with the McShep!  :D

No more Sc-fi on terrestrial TV for the forseeable future  :(

On the plus side, I don't have to find myself wanting to demolish my TV every Sunday afternoon because of the presenters on T4 and the way they mock Sci-fi fans ....... or become frustrated at episodes of Stargate that make no sense because they've been so heavily edited.   Still, I can't get Channel 5 so no Atlantis for me either.  No Sci-fi.  

*scratches head*

Well, I'm sure a solution will present itself - in the meantime, I have all of Season One & Season Two of Atlantis - logo free :)   So maybe I will while away my time making vids - been a while since I did that  :)

My life seems to be settling into a more even keel at the moment, which I'm glad of, as all those manic ups and downs were wearing me out!

Right, onto vidding  :)   I'm having a little problem which you can read about here, and if any of you can/would like to chip in, I'd be very happy as I'm getting pretty desperate to start vidding again and as I said before, I have an idea for a McKay vid to a Nina Simone song which is now so stuck in my head it seems to be on permanent loop!  Plus I still need most of SGA Season 2 (episodes 1-10) logo-free so help there also greatly appreciated!

Don't want much, do I?  :P

*hugs to all* xxx

I've had a really crappy week so far, but am pretty sure things can only get better  :)

Tuesday )

I got the F4 vid finished for Urgo's birthday - ti's not great as I had a very short time frame and picked a difficult song, but it's done and I think he will like it  :)   In between everything else I need to do the next few days, I'm taking him and some of his friends to Tower Park for the day on Saturday :)

Once I track down the final elusive SGA Season 2 eps, McShep vidding beckons  ;)

*Love & hugs to all*

Feeling quite down this morning, but trying hard to shake it off/ignore it.  The reasons why are behing the cut, but you can skip this if you like  ;)

State of mind )

I'm hoping to start on a vid today - sadly not SGA as I don't have enough material yet.  It's an F4 vid, which I would like to get finished before next weekend for The Boy as it's his birthday this week  :)

Also, on the search for Season 2 of SGA - all help appreciated  :)

*Hugs to all*

Nabbed from [ profile] azonia   :)

Take a peek )


I'm working my way through Season One of SGA and loving it as much as I thought I would - if not more!  It was hard to drag myself into work this morning, but as I had to open up the building to enable everyone else to be here, I thought I'd better make the effort *g* - I'm leaving early though ....... still quite a few episodes to go  :)

Just need the rest of Season 2 ......

the_muppet: (I love geeks)
( Feb. 2nd, 2006 09:05 pm)

My package came ......... and yeah, the whole of Season One  :)   I don't know whether to drool or just leer *g*

[ profile] _gater_ you are an absolute angel and you've earnt yourself some M'nM's ...... at least  :)   Oh, and did you ever notice that Sheppard has kinda pointy ears - you think he could be our third partner?

*back to drooling....leering....drooling.....leering*

Ooh ............ episode 5 .........and I have to be up at 5.30am tomorrow ...........

Geeky fandom - does it get any better?
