So, I've completed my silver anniversary! Thank you to everyone who sent me messages, gave me pressies, and came along to my various dos! I had a wonderful time (even though I didn't really get a chance to talk to everyone as much as I wanted, what with all the tea-making and toasting and what have you!) and I hope everyone else did too. ♥

Now I've got to go to the bank and get my eyes tested. Should probably have gone earlier, but meh, it's my last day off before going back to work. Boo!

I'm home. Time had = good. Many photos. I've been to the moors (Bodmin, Exmoor and Dartmoor), the seaside, numerous gardens (including Lost of Heligan and the Eden Project), an abbey, some 17th century houses and a vineyard, amongst other things! There's lots things I want to comment on, but I really don't have the energy, I'm afraid (not to mention that that means any responses I do come up with would probably be sharper than I'd mean at any other time, so it's safest for us all if I leave it ^^;). Will never catch up on friends list, though I've had a bit of a stab at bits of it, so if I've missed anything you'd like me to see, please link me to it here! (That most certainly includes fic rec. If you, or anyone you know, has written decent fic for Saiyuki [or D1, who have been dominating my mind whilst on holiday], please link me! And I'll love you forever! BTW, how did Wank Week work out? I have a fic for it that needs tidying and polishing...)

I also got back to fantastic parcels from [livejournal.com profile] muscatlove and [livejournal.com profile] sublimeparadigm!! Jackie, I know I should've waited but I couldn't resist. ^_~ I've not opened the plastic wrap yet though - am waiting till I'm alone... ^_~ Thank you so much!! ♥♥♥

[livejournal.com profile] giving_ground is coming tomorrow, yay! Remember folks - tea party @ my house, Thursday, 3.30pm-whenever! Please call in after work, if you work, or just for a cuppa and a piece of nice cake. :D Please come?

Finally, just a message to send much, much love to [livejournal.com profile] owari. Seriously, if you need anything at all, including just someone to chat to or whatever, just let me know. ♥

This largely aimed at [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire to remind her that Fuji needs his fridge fixed, and there's only one man fit for the job! Yes, it's sweet, innocent Taka, new to the fridge-fixing business and as yet unaware of Fuji-the-fridge-breaker and his wiles. >D Wriiiiiite it!

Heheh, birthday presents are good. ;3 In case people don't know, it's my birthday on the 7th of September, and I'm having a tea party in aid of the charity Homestart. The party will start around 3.30pm, and continue until, well, whenever people can make it! Please come, bring cake, and if you could spare a little change for charity that'd be cool! Oh, and do dress up if you like too. ^_~ (There'll be non-tea based drinks for non-tea drinkers. Ie, coffee and hot chocolate, and anything anyone else wants to bring. Not alcohol, please, unless you bring actual champagne. ;)

I'm also going on holiday to Cornwall on Saturday, for about 10 days - coming back a week on Tuesday! I just remembered I forgot to say that. ^^;; I'll probably be scarce during this time, but hey, drop me a comment if you'd like a postcard, or some delicious fudge!

Err... me go bed now. I feel like I've not been posting much, but I'm sure no-one else has got that impression. XD

The View are indeed on fire. Just come back from seeing them live at Plug, and I really did enjoy it. It was a short set, but hey, it was a fiver, and I enjoyed every song. (They look so freakin' young. Probably cos they are, but still. o.o) Would love to see The Fratellis at some point too ([livejournal.com profile] sailor_perrin, if you're not familiar with them already, I think you might enjoy them as well) - they're supporting Kasabian at the Arena, but I don't want to pay Arena prices to see a support band I really like and a headliner I think is OK. The Fratellis' album is out just before my birthday, though! Speaking of which - we'll be hopefully heading to Plug on the Thursday evening for the indie/90s pop night, so please, come along!

Oh dear, tired now. Unable to form coherent sentences anymore. z_z
diamondlife: (SanaYuki - caffeineaddict)
More pressie for me! :D SanaYuki ficlet from [livejournal.com profile] trixie_chick. ♥ Thank you so much! :D

[livejournal.com profile] r_chan also drew me the sweetest chibi Taka, which I will scan and share at a later date when my room isn't full of people playing Blood Will Tell. (Personally I preferred Guilty Gear X. I laughed more at Faust than I have done about anything for a very long time. XD)

Going to Norwich for the weekend! Hopefully will see Sutton Hoo. Setting off in the "AM" tomorrow, what's with that? o.o So, I guess I better sleep... but I'm not that tired. Hn.

Had a wonderful birthday meal, so thank you to all who attended! ♥

Finally, if you want to nab me for partyage, do it over the next half hour. Do iiiiiit! >D I want much crack by the time I return. ;)
diamondlife: (99 problems - tehiconz)
Mmm, 20 stupid things about me. )

Like I said in no. 20, I love those things. ;D

My mouth has been hurting all week. I have about four ulcers, which isn't a good sign about my immune system, and it also means brushing my teeth is agony. -_-

Oh, and look at this cool icon. XD We're all Yuki's bitches.

Birthday is proceeding nicely! Thank you all for your wishes! ♥
diamondlife: (Presents - xinyu)
Wow, I had so many nice birthday things even beofre I went to bed this morning last night! :D

First, the tensai-like [livejournal.com profile] sublimeparadigm wrote me an amazing Ryuuzaki/Tez smutfic (I kid you not) that made me fangirl her even more than I already did! XD Word of warning, though - don't watch any PoT eps with her in immediately after, like I did. I was shivering a little, and then I realised why. XD

Dave also got me a big glossy book on the history of manga - the one by the guy who did the panel, for those of you who were at AyaCon! :-*

Then there was my banner from [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire... It's safe for work! But not for sanity! )

I did have a moment of panic when I tried to switch my computer on this morning and got a complicated load of graphics card-related beeps... but those were solved by raiding [livejournal.com profile] avatar1983's bits box and coming up with a shiny GeForce 2 MX. I love how components die overnight. ^^' But at least it saved me a great deal of anguish, not to mention money. ^^'

Thank you also for your text, [livejournal.com profile] m00nface! :D All tennis boys in dresses gratefully received. >3

Now I'm going to wash my hair, go for Japanese set lunch at the East Ocean Cafe, hope it doesn't rain, then attempt to finish fic, heartened by my swift dashing-off of 500 words last night. (How come I can write that much of a little idea in about an hour, and get it all finished... but I can't write more than a sentence of the fic I've been dying to finish for a week? -_-)
diamondlife: (Munchkins - rin_sama)
Ee~! I get stupidly excited about birthdays these days. No reason in particular - I just get happy thinking about it, lol, even if I don't expect to get a lot of stuff or do anything special; I just always determine to make the best of it. Today I bought strawberries as a treat, and I also booked La Mancha for 7.30 on Thursday. So, all housemates and Sheffield friends in general, you're welcome to come along! Please assemble at our house at around 7-ish. ([livejournal.com profile] roguish_scholar, you're one of the ones I've not had a chance to ask directly about it, but hope you can make it! :)

Also am fangirling people again. SOMEONE STOP ME FRIENDING THE WORLD. I doubt they'd appreciate it.

At least I've now consumed something today besides coffee and pretzels.

And for the record, I deny all reports that I "drive like Kamio". XD

[Edit] Gorgeous Okita Souji art! *_*
diamondlife: (Yo - sublimeparadigm)
Sheffield folks! Is Thursday @ La Mancha OK for you all?? Not booked it yet but I don't envisage any problem - it'd be nice to get a rough idea of numbers, though. :3 Hope people can make it. And hope I get free Sambucca and another hat again. :D

Speaking of Sambucca, I left it and some shot glasses round at [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire's. Somehow plushies don't hold shot glasses as well as I envisioned. ^^'

Been poking round RPs today and am almost tempted to maybe apply for some of the ones that allow random applications. Also, [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire, certain logs at [livejournal.com profile] tenipuri_pexxx may interest you. ;D

My blackberries had gone mouldy, which wasn't unexpected, but was upsetting, even though they were free. :( Still, there are some more in the garden - I can still make a (smaller) pie! ;_;

I've been very dizzy for a lot of today - it's got better through the day, but when I woke up the room was spinning, and when I got out of bed I couldn't turn round without it happening again! It's funny, I kind of enjoy the feeling of being dizzy (I liked to roll down hills as a child) but what should I be worrying about? XD

Have had day of not doing much. So there's a change then! ^^'
diamondlife: (Presents - xinyu)
Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] fyredra! :D Hope you have a lovely day filled with all the crack you can eat! ^__^

Speaking of birthdays, it's mine in, ooo, three weeks! So, Sheffield folks, who likes tapas? (After last year's successful haul of free Sambucca and a sombrero, I feel we've got to go to La Mancha again!) I was thinking of having whatever I do have a few days early, as [livejournal.com profile] yukipen and [livejournal.com profile] trembles are going to be around - but also, that way I can have more than one birthday, heheh. ;)

Today's plan is:

- wash hair. Attempt first run of dye. Let [livejournal.com profile] davechan loose with scissors.
- leave house! *shocku* Take papers to read, go to Botanical Gardens. Or, failing that, the Egg. *cough*
- give present to [livejournal.com profile] vanillafire!
- transfer photos from Scotland to free up card for con...
- do some RP stuff, as yet undetermined but probably involving Kaidoh
- some other crap, like usual

Oh, and did I mention I've decided to do a PhD? *suicide* More on that as we get it.

Man, this entry was pointless. :/ I'd hence like to issue an invitation to character-spam me. >;)

And to finish off, a meme from [livejournal.com profile] davechan:

1) Post a comment to this and I'll respond with something random about you.
2) I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3) I'll pick a food to wrestle with you in. Or beat you with. Depending. And because, eh, why not?
4) I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me. Or maybe just me.
5) I'll tell you my first memory of you.
6) I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7) I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8) If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal. Unless you really don't want to

Use the meme in conjunction with what I said immediately before it, if you like. In fact, that would be cool. XD (Number 4 will be difficult, lol, but it'd still be fun. XD)
