Girl in the Bright Blue Dress


On Saturday, my local town centre was part of this thing for the Edinburgh International Book Festival called ReImagination. The idea is to have smaller sort of book cons in towns across Scotland so that more people can get to book festival type things because it's not always feasible to get through to Edinburgh during the period the Book Festival is on.

It was pretty fun, I guess. I sat in on readings from children's authors - all mostly from the Kelpies publisher - and it was honestly a good laugh. Got talking to author Lari Don after it, and she's pretty cool. Ended up buying more books, and right now I'm looking across at my main bookshelves and they're a horrible mess. I really need to tidy it up... Not something I'm looking forward to doing

Mood wise, I'm pretty much the same? Not good, not terrible but really not good. I spend most of my time wanting to sleep but that's really gone to hell in a handbasket. Plus the weird and unsettling dreams are back and... yeah, not the best thing in the world.

Not long till I go to London - I go about the 6th July - so trying to save money up. It's a lot sooner than I thought and I still have Father's Day and Dad's birthday to get through before then. Here's hoping things work out pretty well.

Wonder Woman next week! Looking forward to it. We pre-booked tickets for opening day because both brother boy and Dad agreed that out of all superhero movies, this is the one we want to do well at the box office. Not really got much else to say apart from that. Really sleepy.

Hope you're all doing good!

May the Fourth


I suppose "Down Days" would be the more accurate title for this, but I am trying to be positive even if it's not what I really feel on a day to day basis. Which, as you might guess, is not very positive at all. I don't really know what's causing it, but I've been on a very strong down for at least a week, probably a bit longer. It's making me really, really tired but I'm too warm to nap for long and the weather getting better is not helping that. It's also made me get out of the habit of trying to do 10 minutes on the exercise bike each day because I simply don't have the energy to do it.

Brother Boy's birthday is on Thursday, and I have his gift in. Not sure if we'll go out or not on the day. At the moment, we're planning to, but Brother Boy has a strong history of changing his mind at the last minute, which is not always great. If he does want to stay in, I guess that's fine. I mean, it's his birthday, I can't be telling him what to do. I hope he likes what I've got him, he's been asking for this for a while so... yeah. Mind you, again with the mind changing thing. He doesn't mean to annoy anyone with it, it's just a thing he does. Not sure if we're getting him a cake or not. He likes really chocolate-y things, and I do not do so well with chocolate. Will work something out.

Think that's all I can think of at the moment. Hopefully I'll have more stuff to talk about later.

A Glimpse Into the Future...?


Today has not been the best mental health day. I feel very low, and superfluous, and that all I do is annoy and irritate. Add to that this crushing loneliness and... Yeah, not been the best for my mental health. I think the car being in the garage and knowing that bill's coming doesn't help. Though I did set up my first sales post which should hopefully help to get a little towards covering costs. I'll likely get another one up soon because there are some more figures and two Ai BJDs I'd like to try to sell as well. It's just getting myself motivated to do it.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 came out the other day. I'm not sure if I'll get to see it anytime soon, but I'm hopeful. The brother's birthday is next week, and he's been looking forward to that movie coming out, so he might want to go see it. Then again, he might change his mind and decide not to. Who knows?

I am going to go cuddle under my blanket for a while

A Trip to the Theatre


Yesterday I finally got to see a live production of The Addams Family Musical and it was so much fun! Carrie Hope Fletcher was playing Wednesday, and dear gods, that girl has an amazing voice. Here's a video she did with Andrew Lippa of her performing 'Pulled'. In comparison with the Broadway run, Wednesday kept her braids, and Lucas is a bit more... I want to say jock-like than the adorable nerd who wore a Gryffindor tie to meet his girlfriend's parents. It's not bad, I just personally prefer nerd!Lucas. The whole cast was amazing though, and I really wish I had been able to stage door. Maybe when it comes to Glasgow, if I get a ticket for that run of the tour.

I've also been checking out Emerald City, NBC's newest adaptation of the Oz stories. I have to say that I really like it. It's once again a darker look on the stories, but in a rare turn? The Tip/Ozma story is one of the lead ones, and it's played quite seriously. Actually, it's played as a trans story and I am hard pressed to think of one of them in any other fantasy based show at the moment. Tip is my favourite character, with Jack and West tied for second place. I like Dorothy, but I feel like a lot of her story is quite predictable, if only because her story has been played out so many times in other versions. I'm not sure if there's going to be a second season, but I hope there is. My main hope for it is Tip and Jack regaining their friendship - they both seem to miss the other.

As for life in general... Eh, not much has been happening. I still need to make the sales posts, I just seem the lack the energy to do... well, anything as of late. Need to see about fixing that.

And now? Now I am going to go for a nap. Because I am tired.

Shopping
Shopping Woody feels oddly appropriate


Long story short: I have items - mostly fandom related - I want to sell, and I'm not sure where to do it but I know I'm not going to use eBay.

To get into a bit more detail... Well, actually the summary kind of explains it all. I think I'll end up using facebook groups for most of it, because I've have some good experiences selling through there and I've been considering these items for a while. I know at least one of them - S.H. Figuarts first edition Card Captor Sakura - should at least get the asking price since it has the awesome box and really I'm only asking what I paid for her in the first place. I have the Figma and I actually like that one better. Keeping the Figuarts around because I like the box seems a little silly when there's people out there who want her who might not be able to get hold of her.

It's the same with the Digimon figures to be honest. I'm also contemplating some Funko Pop sales because I somehow have a lot more of them than I ever expected. And maybe - maybe - my Ai BJDs. They're adorable, an' all, but honestly? I don't really seem to have the rush of 'omg awesome' for them that others have. Maybe they're just not the type for me, IDK, but I'd rather sell them on to a collector who'll enjoy them and give them more attention than I have.

But for now, I just need to work out what I'm doing and settle on prices. And hope that I do manage to make a sale.

An Update.

It's Your Turn, Now


This update came a lot faster than I thought it would. Not that much has changed since I last updated, I'm just trying to get myself doing it more so I don't leave this place all dusty again. The only big change since a couple of days ago is that I've managed to get hold of everything I'm getting people for Easter, so that's that by. Otherwise I need to save money because I have, in succession per months - a birthday, a birthday, a first communion, father's day, a birthday, and a 40th wedding anniversary. Yeah, right up till July is going to be quite expensive for me - I'm not even sure if I'll be able to afford a ticket to Glasgow Comic Con, but maybe I'll get lucky.

I should really set up some sales posts. I've got some Digimon Adventure Megahouse figures, and a Figuarts Card Captor Sakura that could be interesting as sales. I waver on the latter though, since her box is designed to look like the Book of Clow. That being said, I have the Figma version of the figure and I much prefer it as a display piece. There's also some Funko POPs I could sell. I have options, is what I'm musing about here.

Anne of Green Gables is getting a Netflix adaptation which starts airing on May 12. It's called Anne and I'm not entirely sure if it will be on Netflix UK. I hope so though. I think The Worst Witch should be on Netflix by that time, and it would be fun to be able to watch both. Not that I have Netflix right now, but I think by the time July is done, I should be able to get it. Well, I hope so anyway.

Seeing that two books of my childhood are having new reboots this year has made me wonder why there aren't dolls or other such merchandise for them. I vaguely remember Anne being available in the When I Read, I Dream series Mattel put out, but I don't actually remember seeing said series here in the UK. As for Mildred Hubble, well, there was never anything for her. So I made my own this year:

Custom: Mildred Hubble


To make her more true to book, I need to make the shirt grey and get her some boots - proper, stompy, can kick your arse boots. Doc Martins were the ones used in the 1998 Granada production so if I could find ones like that for a 21cn Obitsu body, that would be great. I'm quite pleased with her pinafore to be honest. Came out nicer than I thought.

Maybe I could try making my own Anne? Be worth a short. What doll head would make a good base...?

Super Alien Buds!


So I have been rewatching Power Rangers: R.P.M a lot recently, and honestly I don't think 'a lot' begins to explain it. I would have opened this with a Power Rangers related pic, but I don't know if I have a decent one in my flickr-stream at the moment so... Yeah, Super Alien Buds will do till I can take something relevant. What started this re-watch, I hear you ask?

I wanted to introduce a friend. Really, that's it. And I've been rewatching as they've been watching for the very first time and it's been a really fun experience. Though I have had a resurge of immense feels for the Dillon/Summer ship and flying Whale zord scene. That is all. I may even have fic, which amazes me beyond anything because wow, it's been a while.

Beyond there, there's not been much going on in life. I've spent the past week pretty much in bed because I have a sickness bug that may also have the flu tacked on to it. Fun times. Started to do the Christmas shopping and have managed to get most of the family stuff done, just the friend stuff to go. Not sure what I actually want myself... Some books would be cool.

Will hopefully check in again soon, either with an actual update or a Life in the Room type thing. We'll see.

The New Friend


I think the title explains what sort of week it's been for me so far. I genuinely had no clue as to my days and only got told about 10 minutes ago that it was, in fact, Thursday. I've spent most of the time trying to clear out a huge desk and it's finally finished. With any luck we'll be able to get rid of it quick smart, and I can have my new bookcase up in my room. Which I bought at the beginning of the year. Yeaaaah, takes a while to get stuff done, especially when you've got no, or next to no motivation.

Sometimes We Watch Movies


So I've been taking a lot of photos lately. It's something to do. I've pretty much started this year on a down, and it's not going away yet because there just seems to be a lot of stressful things that keep happening. Thus, I take photos of things to try to calm me down. So far, it's about 50/50 on whether it's working or not. The new Batman v Superman figures are out in the UK, just the blister pack ones as far as I can tell, so I'm thinking about getting Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Currently selling stuff off anyway, because... eh.

I don't really fell happy or sad, if that makes any sense. It's just a general sort of 'meh' feelings. A numbness, I guess, would be the best way to describe it. I feel like I want to cry sometimes, but then I feel angry with myself about that. It's just... yeah. Had an inflamed ear this past week and while the pain from that is pretty much gone, I still feel a bit off-balance. I'm down at the doctor's next week, so if I'm still having the issues, I'll say.

Been watching Galavant, and enjoying the new season. Spreading the hashtags: #ISuperBelieveinTadCooper, #WeSuperBelieveinGalavant, #RenewGalavant. It's not a groundbreaking show, but it's a show that seems to make a lot of people happy, and I think we need more of that. Happy is important, and a lot of shows tend to fling that out the window in favour of being serious. Give me the meta humour, show, and I'll sing along with you. Musicals get me so worked up.

Um, not much else I can think to say to be honest... Hoping you're all doing well and that 2016 has gotten off to a better start for you than it has for me. Speak again soon!
werepuppyblack: (The Addams Family)
And I've done nothing to my NaNo. I just can't get into it this year, which is a pity. I had a great idea, and yet this while month has really just been a case of 'uuuugh' when it comes to anything. It probably doesn't help that the weather's gotten really bad as of late, and I tend to affected by the change in weather. Seriously, it's not stopped raining the past couple of days. It's not a bad thing, just... annoying, if I'm honest.

And... yeah, that's really been it this month. I've been getting my Christmas shopping done, but that's more out of just wanting it out of my way than anything else. I've been asked if there's anything I would like and I really have no answer to give to that question. Seriously, my mind has been blank.

Otherwise, it's been an average sort of month. Good days and bad. Got a bit of a cold that's making me tired more than anything. Hope you're all doing well!
werepuppyblack: (Darkwing Duck)
Yes, once again I decided to sign up to NaNoWriMo. I'm not doing too badly for a first day, but I feel rather sluggish with my words. I can't really explain it except using the idea of heavy limbs trying to swim further but they're too heavy to make it work. It's... a thing, certainly. I do like my idea this time round, which is just writing short stories about this character and binding them together - no big arc of the book. More of a "here's the life of [x]. Enjoy!" I'd like to reach at least 30,000 words. I don't think I've got any real chance of making the big target, but maybe I could meet my own.

Tomorrow - 2nd Nov for those keeping count - I get my new phone from my contract. They let me change phones every two years, and I'm pretty much needing a new one now. Mine isn't really ringing out except to prove me wrong it would seem. That does mean if I've missed a call or text from you I'm sorry! My new phone is going to be a Microsoft Lumia 535, so I'm on the lookout for cool cases for it.

Fandom wise... I finally managed to finish the first anime series of Assassination Classroom, and I'm so glad I did! This was reccommended by a plurk friend and honestly, it's been the type of anime I've needed to remind me of why I like the overall genre. I do keep seeing Karma as the child of Yankumi and Shin from Gokusen though... I'm keeping up with the manga, and Anime Limited is set to release the show on DVD in the UK - Anime Limited is a Glasgow based company, so we'll be able to keep quite up to date with information!

Doctor Who has been providing me with good entertainment these past few Saturday nights, especially the ones when my little cousin joins me on Skype to watch-along. He's very vocal with his reactions, even when he's reading. He's making his way through the A Song of Ice and Fire series right now, and seems to have heavy preferences for the Stark. I have taught my young Padawan well.

Um... not too sure what else to say? I've got the psychiatrist and doctor both this week, so that'll be a ton of fun. If anyone liked it - I'm hoping I might have a new Life of Action Figures planned out for later this week. Maybe. If people would want to see it again. I'm thinking of tagging those posts with fandoms featured, so people know. I don't know though.

7 weeks till Giftmas. 7 weeks to attempt to get gifts for not just friends and close family, but little cousins under the age of 10 who don't seem to understand that a gift card is a present, it's just a present that means you get to choose what it is you get. And most of whom are still obsessed with Frozen.

... Can I go back to the Skeleton Wars?
werepuppyblack: (Default)
So... um... I got published in this anthology of stories. The money raised by the book goes towards charity, so really it's just the chance to get their name in print for any of the authors and, well, I think that's a great thing. I had a lot of fun writing my little piece, and it is only a little piece and not even the best in the book. I was actually really surprised they accepted my work, but people who have read it really enjoy it.

There's another anthology going round that I'd quite like to partake in as well - but this is a horror based one, and I'm not really sure if I'm so good at horror. I think I'll give it a shot though; I really do enjoy writing, and it's about the only thing in my life that doesn't mess me up and cause panic or anxiety. Well, except when it comes to editing but editing is dreaded by all writers I think.

But... yeah, just wanted to share the link with you all. If you want to read some smashing stories about GLBTQI+ groups during the Great War, knowing the money is going to a good cause, I'd really pick this one up. The stories are touching, and it was all done with great care to historical accuracy.

Hoping everyone is doing well! Sorry I don't post so often; I really should but I always seem to get distracted.

Oh yes! And I have a new little baby cousin. His name is Tom and he's adorable. My job is to help make sure he doesn't see Frozen as the greatest animated movie of all time. My big cousin/honorary brother (we basically grew up together round at our gran and grandad's. I have my real brother, and I have my honorary brother, both of whom tormented me but eh that's family) and I are in agreement that it's a good movie, but honestly, The Lion King is the best of Disney's out-put.

Nothing really else to report here. Still dealing with all my mental health issues; though I've started at the gym as a way of boosting my self-confidence and to see if it helps with the always feeling tired. NHS Scotland has a program that lets you do that. We were down in London, actually, when the results of this latest General Election came in. We went to see The Lion King Musical on the Friday night. A right old Tory supporter who sat a few rows behind us overheard my mum speaking to his wife as they came back to their seats. He told her to go home to Scotland, we'd lost, and weren't wanted down there anymore. ... Yeah, it was that sort of trip. Show was lovely though, the staff did their best to make sure the guy didn't get talking to us again.

Also got to see Les Misérables with two great friends, who basically ambushed me a few hours after I got into town. It was a great night - one of the cast was from Maryhill so it was nice to have a chat with another Scot in among all the election nonsense. It's coming up for the 30th anniversary, I think. My friend - who sees the show quite often - thinks they're going to redo the theatre and we won't have the turn-table stage anymore. Not really sure what to think of that, it's been with the show so long.

Galavant was renewed for a second season, as was Agent Carter. The latter is coming to the UK soon which I'm very happy about because I've been singing it's praises to Dad and he really wants to see Peggy Carter being the badass we all know she is. Even when I was little, Dad always seemed to be a bit wary of the type of female characters I saw in movies and on TV. He preferred the ones that could stand on their own two feet more than the ones who seemed to need rescuing all the time. I think he just wanted me to know I could do what I wanted, and didn't want the TV telling me otherwise.

I'd like Galavant to come out on DVD - then I could show him that. He'd love the humour, and the music.

My birthday is ... two months away tomorrow by date. I'll be 25. A quarter of a century. People will expect me to be a proper adult by now and what I am? Someone who gets freaked out by her own mind over-reacting, who breaks the common Western belief of leaving home early by still staying with her parents, and who collects toys inside of going out to clubs. ... No wonder most of my family prefer my cousins.
werepuppyblack: (Default)
The answer? Nowhere, really.

Thing is, the whole depression thing has gotten really bad. There's been a lot of tears, and frustration, and way too much paranoia for my liking. So the doctor has completely changed my medication and we're seeing how that does for me. I'm also waiting on news of a hospital visit to find out what's going on with my stomach that it won't keep food in properly without me later rushing to evacuate it. And yes, that is the nicest way I could think of to word that. Sorry if it grossed anyone out, I promise it wasn't intentional.

In happier - or at least fandomy - related news.... Erm, I've been getting back into Digimon. Meaning I've actually be re-getting some old figures and stuff and even have the new Hikari G.E.M MegaHouse figure pre-ordered. I'll have the money together by the time it comes off my account - December is one of those months where you don't really know where half your money is going if you come from a big extended family,  like I do. Also got my presents all wrapped and boxed to be sent off, which is good. Shall do that tomorrow.

In doll related stuff... I don't know how to explain it. I've got a bag of EAH Royals ready to go up to the charity shop (among some other stuff) and, IDK, I just feel a little disillusioned with doll collecting at the moment. I still would really like to get River Styxx when she arrives in the UK, but otherwise... it's an eh. I seem to be looking more to figures again. I can't explain it properly.

Power Rangers Super Megaforce ... another big eh. After all that hype about the cameos, and most of them wouldn't even make a ten minute youtube video. Gokaiger did it better, guys. Clearly the older actors were willing to come back, and I bet most of them wouldn't have minded doing a proper episode to help the new team know the powers better... but what do I know? I don't work for the television networks, I'm just a fan who occasionally writes fic. I think I missed the sign ups for Alpha's Magical Fic Exchange, actually, and I'm kicking myself for that.

That's pretty much all I can think of right now. Hope to update again soon. Wishing you all a good holiday period, if I don't update before then.

First of all, the news of a Blue Beetle on-going to come from the DC Reboot has ... caused  me to me very conflicted. I make no secret of the fact that I love those comics, but the problem is I don't necessarily think the reboot is going to be a good idea in any sense of the word and I was all prepared to boycott DC ... And then they annouce that we're going back to El Paso. *sigh* I am SO  conflicted. It doesn't help that a lot of the new designs and story summaries make it seem like we're right back in the 90s 'EXTREME era, and I cannot be arsed with that. Here's hoping that Blue Beetle, at least, will remain the sweet kid we know him as.

Have started Sinkenger and have gotten to episode 18 ... and it's only really with the introduction of Genta that this show is having an impression on me. Now, to make it clear - Gokaiger I loved from the first episode. Magiranger had me enchated by episode 4, but for this? ... Out of the 18 episodes I've watched, only 4 of them actually stick in mind. And ... I don't know why I'm having this issue. I quite like the characters, and the premise is interesting enough, I just seem to find it bloody boring. But, like I said, I've gotten to Genta and the show finally seems to be sinking in, so we'll see how we go from here

Gokaiger's 199 Heroes Battle movie came out yesterday and I am resigned to the fact that it'll be December before I see it. I really wish there was a way for Tokusatsu to be exported in a slightly more efficient way - though I adore and love Power Rangers to pieces I would love to be able to pick up some of these movies on dvd. Then again, I live in the UK and getting any type of non-UK produced media can be hard enough - and then the industries wonder why people are illegally downloading more. Actually, I'm referring more to this awesome looking action figure when I speak of this but the point stands for dvds and the like as well! 


I've recently been listening to the soundtrack for Mozart, l'opera rock on youtube and I've fallen in love slighty, even though I can't understand a word. It's grand, it's theatrical, it's all in French ... it's just one of the many things I've looked at due to being bored and then fallen in love with as its stuck with me past the boredom. It happens a lot. I'm in luck with this one though, the cd/dvd is available via amazon. No idea if it has English subtitles, but I'll learn! 

And lastly ... I got the results for the 2nd year of university in. I passed everything - and quite brilliantly for some modules. Bring on the 3rd year. (But please let my 21st before hand result in money so I can afford my third year)

1. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: ... Yeah, I'm still in love with this awesome pirate-based sentai. And, godsdammit, I STILL want to rp Marvelous ... after I steal his coat. Like I've said a few timesbefore on this journal, I'm not really big on my sentai knowledge, which does make it odd that I choose to start at one that is literally all callbacks but... eh, that's me. (Okay, so I did watch a fair bit of GaoRanger on youtube when the subbed episodes were up, but it was a hit and miss thing there, it wasn't terrible just... oddly bland in places) I'm thinking of watching either MagiRanger or TimeRanger next, and was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a good sentai to watch.

2. Horrible Histories: Series 3 started on Monday and the show is back in full force. We had a whole week of great episodes, and it's fantastic to see such quality programming from CBBC, especially in the wake of the kind of 'meh' output its had lately. With Young Dracula - hopefully - starting back this autumn/winter series, well, I'm going to be annoyed if I have any late classes this upcoming term. Lol. Actually have been making strides to at least get some of my faveourite HH books again. I used to have a full set but they sort of went missing over the years and at the very least they are what started my interest in History so... Yeah.

3. Sherlock: Okay. so this was really more of a rewatch, having finally managed to actually buy the damn dvd, but DAMN I forget how much I like a good detective story. And it's always Sherlock Holmes who reminds me. The next series of that is due to air this autumn as well, which I will be watching (likely using iplayer live since my television sucks but I have paid my license fee so can use the live feature) but I think I'll end up rewatching the dvd a good few times before then.

4. Dirk Gently: I got the omnibus book out of the library because, frankly, I haven't read this story in yonks and my Douglas Adams collection is sorely lacking but as I am lacking in money atm, it's the library for me. It's just as bloody confusing as I remember - seriously, I don't mind the tv adpatation changing the plot, it really wouldn't work for an hour long program - but that makes it all the more fun! Will be updating it on my Goodreads account (link in the side-bar) and I'll try to give a really good review! 

5. Real Life: Well... where to start with this one. First of all, thank you all for the lovely comments on the post a few enteries back. I am not ignoring the lovely comments, it's just that to prevent that type of think I'm ... ignoring the post. Anyways, house is slowly getting all done up and room is looking less like a bomb site and more like my room again. Two weeks tomorrow (4th... which means the 18th, really) I will be going to GLASGOW COMIC CON. Am very excited about all of this, and hope to at least pick up the newest Blue Beetle trade. What? He's my favourite! There are currently 73 days till my 21st birthday, which the counting for is not as childish as you may think. This means 72 days until I have the very large family party, so that the actual *day* can be free for me to do my think. Also, the awesome [livejournal.com profile] siddymouche  is coming to visit. THERE WILL BE HIJINKS PEOPLE.

Well, hey there people it's been a while since one of my Glee-views, but I felt like the last episode would be a good one to work with. I mean, it has a lot going for it in my favour just by being set in New York - one of my all time favourite cities just because of how vast and multi-cultural the place is. So, what did I think of the episode New York? Well...

Okay, so I just completed that quiz, and I'll post my results here before going into a description of what it means. And saying it now, while I cam going to be critical of this quiz in relation to myself - THAT DOES NOT MEAN FOR A SECOND I DO NOT FIND IT AWESOME. No, seriously, this is a brilliant quiz and I highly support people going and looking at it. It can be found here

Shade: Light
Level: Ninja (Soul)
Color: Green
Archetype: The Paladin
Traits: Dominant Negative Masculine

You are on the side of Light; you would be a Green Ranger. Your animal is the Panther (DNM).

And yes, that's as far as I'm posting because while the other stuff is interesting, it would take up a helluva lot of room before I can get into my description. But yes, I will be looking to it as I get into my description. And yes, I will be focusing on whether or not it applies to me before I actually get on to the actual colour theory stuff. So be warned of rambling.  Side note: the colour theory is part of what makes me wish I could use Fandom in my media analysis portfolio (due May 3rd, and still not really started properly yet... Yeah, I know, bad of me but I just can't get properly focuses on it).

But this leads me into how I'm going to round off this rambling entry. What do I think of the colour theory? Well, like I said, it's one of the many reasons I'd love to be able to use fandom related things n my media portfolio, but on the whole I do think Ellen Brand latched on to something very true when she created it, even if I'm sure there's a lot more subsections to each colour than we necessarily pay attention to, and even if I'm sure Sixth Rangers pretty much mess the average. In connection with me however, well... okay, so it was more near the mark than I'd have liked it to be.

... So when do I get my morpher then?

Which leads me nicely into my little segeway about the happenings in Power Rangers Samurai - admitedly I am a least a week or two behind due to EVIL DEADLINES OF EVIL but I caught Forest for the Trees. I'll put this under an LJ cut for anyone who hasn't managed to catch it yet.

Hopefully I'll catch up with all the episodes soon. Tell me if there's anything I need to see!

So I finally finished The Hunger Games after getting them over Christmas and having them sit on my shelf. Managed to get through the whole trilogy within about a week; the writing is captivating. So this is just my little... overview of it all, I guess. There be spoilers, but I'll LJ cut it, so you don't have to read further if you don't want to.

Told you there would be a cut )

But yes, in short I liked it. Definitely one to be re-read and kept on the shelf.

Which I shall start off by saying: BOOYAH BITCHES, GOING TO SEE MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE ON TUESDAY!

... I need to get that out of my system, thanks for bearing with me. Currently sitting in the Learning Cafe at my university enjoying a nice hot cup of tea and listening to my mp3 and generally just waiting for my lecture at 12. After which I shall go for lunch. A good plan, yes? I haven't done a general update in a while, so I might just try to type one out now while I don't really have much else to do - yes, I know I've got a presentation due on Tuesday, but none of my group are in at this moment (that is, as I'm typing this) so it wouldn't be very productive to do anything on my own.
Other stuff under cut )
So, erm, yeah, think that might be it. Going to go finish my tea now.
