Finally saw the new Bond film today with teh brother, and enjoyed it very muchly!  Daniel Craig still hot, Judy Dench still awesome - no surprises there.  However, as I was settling in to enjoy said film, I had a popcorn related incident.... and broke my freaking back tooth.  Gah!!  There was a sneaky kernel hiding inside a popped bit, and it got me.  It doesn't hurt or anything, but there's quite a large chunk gone and what is left is now stabbing my tongue :-/  And of course it's Friday evening so I can't even call a dentist now until Monday.  Even though nothing like this has ever happened before, I know it's not exactly worth going to an emergency clinic.  Nevertheless, I'm like the person who's never been sick a day in their lives suddenly getting a cold.  OMG DRAMA!!!  What if I have to have a filling or whatever it is they do?  My trips to the dentist only ever consist of a check-up and being told all is well.  On the bright side, at least I'm covered for any treatment, so it's not going to cost me an arm and a leg.

As far as other stuff goes, I've just realised I haven't watched last week's ep of Merlin yet.  Must do that this evening!  I've been enjoying Strictly, as I do every year.  Oh, and I've recently started watching Dexter - I just finished the first season.  Very cool.  Other than that, I've been website-ing, mostly playing with php code and Wordpress for a couple of sites.  One of them is the site for C. House, the drop-in ("well-being") centre that I go to.  As well as that, I'm about to be roped in to help my bro produce a website for a project he's doing - I think they just need someone to do the coding.  And then, I might be interviewed for / taking part in the final-project film of one of the girls in his year, which is about strategies for living with mental illness.  It's all go!
soulstar: (Christmas!)
  1. I seem to have a thing for lists recently.  I think it's all the web coding I've been doing.

  2. I have a few people to wish a very Happy Birthday to - some are a little late, sorry!  So, [ profile] elen_ancalima and [ profile] megolas, I hope you had lovely ones, and [ profile] sbisson, I hope yours is similarly fab.

  3. Web server still down.  Or rather, new server not up and running yet.  Gaaargh.  Naturally, I now really want to do all sorts of things that I need that server to be up for.  Like post to my knitting blog, and read my blogroll.  Why didn't I back that up into a feedreader?  D'oh!

  4. I made my friend C some fingerless mitts for early-xmas.  Apparently he liked them lots, because today I received a really nice webcam in return!!!  Bweeeeeee! :-D  I'm now all set up for video chatting on Skype - don't know yet if I can v-chat through Trillian, which is what I use for AIM/ICQ/MSN/Yahoo chattage.  But if anyone wants to see my ugly mug and have a voice-natter (the camera has a built in mic), now you can.

  5. Must get on with the xmas knitting.  I'm getting there, but I'm not done yet!  Wish me luck...

  6. And talking of xmas, thanks to those of you who've sent me cards.  *hugs*  I... haven't sent any out this year.  Thing is, I'm now on a really tight budget, and I can't actually afford the cards and stamps.  Sad but true!  Therefore, it's e-cards this year.  Just as soon as I've made the graphics. *slacker*

  7. The knuckle joint of my left index finger hurrrrrts.  Probably from the incessant knitting, unless I squashed it when I nearly dropped the printer.  But I think it hurt before that.  I reckon I need a splint.  Or the wah-mbulance. *nod*

And now, have a meme:
I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know very well. I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Some of you I don't know at all because I didn't friend you back (yet?). Perhaps you haven't been around for long, perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: 'Ah, there's so and so...'

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear.

Heh - having resolved to do PEDW only yesterday, I very nearly forgot all about it today.  Duuuuuh!  But look, I'm getting in two hours under the line, so all is well.  It's also occurred to me that my personal definition somehow requires me to make at least one public post a day.  I don't feel like it'd count if I posted only flocked ones.  Perhaps because I made the first one public - doesn't seem like I'd be playing fair to then not do a week of public ones.  I know, it makes no sense.  Not that I think I have anything worth flocking at the moment anyway.  We shall see.

So, today I've mainly been knitting, and on the phone to various people.  I had to reschedule my physiotherapy appointment because I'd made it for Wednesday morning, and I'd forgotten that I'm already busy then.  Dear self: if you're going to use your Palm for a diary, keep it up to date, will you?  I've also been doing some houseworky things (how interesting) and also having a go at setting up my Bookmooch account.  I've only got two books on my inventory so far... I must have some still packed, because the ones I was thinking of putting up there don't seem to be on my shelves.  I wonder if they're in my Mum's loft or something?

Anything else?  Um.  Oh yes!  I had blackberry jelly on toast for breakfast, and very yummy it was too.  And I'm thinking of making a casserole tomorrow, but not for breakfast.  That would be weird.

# Hoorah!  I'm back.  And my brother, with no prompting from me has named my newly upgraded computer "Rodney".  This is beyond perfect, as the extra-fast 'brains' of the machine are currently clad in my old rather bulky and unflattering beige case (which will be replaced with something more sleek and appropriately coloured soonish).  Meanwhile, my new monitor is slim, attractive, and black-and-grey.  Naturally, I instantly christened it John.  Fandom rulz etc.  No change there then.  Anyway, I now have a system that's 4 times faster than my old one.  So much quieter, too - don't know if it was the old fan or hdd or both, but there's a huge difference.  I like it muchly.

# However, the reason the upgrading took so long was that there was a period of oh-crap-it's-all-gone-horribly-wrong because after M had put the new system together, he reformatted the C drive, reinstalled Windows.... and it all crashed hideously, had some kind of cascade failure and took my secondary drive (the one with all my stuff on it) with it.  And because I'd been a bit manic and my old system was so knackered, I hadn't bothered backing everything up properly.  Some stuff I had, but not all of it - not any media, basically.  The big stuff that would have taken ages to burn since it was taking about an hour to burn one CD.  Whoops.  So anyway, it was off to the computer shop after all for a recovery job, and the end result is that I have a new secondary drive, and that I'm using the smaller spare drive I had hanging about as my C drive.  The computer shop managed to get about half of my media back - naturally they were able to restore everything that I did have backed up to CD anyway.  But I should be get my other stuff back again, so it's all good.

# The Xandermog seems to have hurt his back leg again: it keeps giving way under him, causing him to randomly fall over even more than usual.  I think I know why / how he did it: he's been really daft and playful, and seems to have got the idea in his head that he's a monkey.  Some cats can carry off that kind of leaping and climbing.  Not him.  *sigh*

# I'm having a bit of a wonky time and my meds probably need adjusting or something.  So I might not be around much, or I might be around a lot, or I might be manic and annoying, etc etc.  Anyway, have been trying to have it sorted out before it gets worse, but if I disappear for a while then I'm in the process of doing that.  Or something. :-)

In other news:
I am worth $2,169,676 on
How much are you worth?
soulstar: Xandermog investigates (Huuuuh?)
This evening, we have had drama.  Bloody idiot cat.  No, really.  Surely, somewhere in his tiny brain, he must be aware that he can't do the things that his cat-instincts apparently seem to think he can.  Like, for example, jumping from the front steps onto the outside windowsill of the flat.  Because then he misses, and plummets fifteen feet down to the basement.

Xandermog?  Never lands on his feet.  oh dear )

soulstar: (Oh. Crap.)
Was my last-but-one entry really tasteless and offensive?  If so: sorry.  (Although, if I can't make sick jokes about what happened, who can?  Not that I usually do.  Oh well.  Probably still not appropriate.)  Y'all are reading it, going "O.o" and running away very fast, aren't you?  Ooops.

... I typed "y'all".  Definitely time for bed.
