My dearest Holly,

Today we packed up your things - your toys and blankets and bed, and my heart broke all over again.

It's been only two days since you unexpectedly passed, and tomorrow will mark the first morning that I wake up and you won't be sleeping curled up against me. I think it might be the hardest day I will face since losing you.

For those reading this, my much loved dog, Holly suffered a sudden major seizure on Friday evening and never recovered. She passed away in our arms shortly after. She would have been 17 in December and while we knew she wouldn't be with us much longer, she had never seized before and was responding incredibly well the the medication we had her on for renal failure. All signs pointed to a few more months, not a sudden loss.

I got this warning through [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants. Apparently a website has cropped up that is trawling through LJ, looking for anything tagged fanfic, and then reposting it WITHOUT PERMISSION.

Here is a link: http://www.donotlink.com/framed?561309

The link diverts you from the original. It takes you to a separate page that will not show up on search engines, in order to defeat the thief's purpose of attracting search engines. (The site is full of advertising.) But as you can see, a lot of people have been complaining.

I don't know if any of my friends may have been victimized, but there's a Complaint Page, which you can go to and make him take your stuff down.

I don't have time right now to see if he's lifted any of my stories, but I will be checking as soon as I can.

(And I'm using my fanfic tag so if he steals this entry he won't be getting any real fanfic, LOL!)

What up, flist? Loooooong time no speak.

As decided by the community, today is 'post something random in your journal day', as a way of saying this a community site, and we like it that way!

So without further ado, I announce that in less than two weeks time, I'm going overseas!!!! This is pretty big for me, I've only been interstate and never via plane, and I'm about to spend a month in several foreign countries. I won't lie, I'm freaking out just a touch *pulls out hair*.

I will be in London for a few days, meeting up with my sister who is about to end her living there for the past two years and then we're going on to Egypt, Italy and Greece.




I don't know how to end this. HAPPY RANDOM POST DAY!

Things that happened in the last however many months:

I dropped out of uni (accidentally, through a series of misunderstandings and me not being bothered to fix them), and I feel so much happier for it.

I'm working (technically casual, but it's like a 35-40 hour work week) as the front desk of a guest house in my local area. I'm also doubling as the manager-during-the-week. It's pretty awesome, and I love it for the most part, since I kinda really don't like other people.

I've moved out of home!!!!! For the first time in my life I am not living with my parents. It feels pretty great, because for a while there I was feeling like I couldn't live there any more. My parents and I get on great, but I really needed this move. I don't yet have internet at my new house, so I'm leeching off the work wifi when I can. I'm hoping that without internet, I may write a little more, rather than read all the time.

Got myself a new batch of friends, to replace the ones that seem to have forgotten I exist, and was once a friend.

And finally, and the main reason that I haven't written anything, posted, commented on stories or journal entries even though I've read them, is that for all I'm at my happiest and most content than I have been in a while, my mood is on a real down. Like, depression episode down. Zero motivation, want-to-be-on-happy-making-meds down. (Also, I didn't like my springfling submission [though thank you so much to the people who did like it!] so I haven't posted it here.)

It really, truly sucks. So it'll probably be a few months till you next hear from me (in fact, it'll probably be November, since I signed up for and shall resurface for reversebang again) because I'm still getting over my best friends abandoning me.

I've been meaning to sign up for the 100 things meme for weeks now, but didn't know what the hell I was going to do. Anyway, it finally occured to me.

100 things: a blogging challenge )

So, I'm not as proud of this as I was for the success of my mini cheesecakes, but I kind of love how these babies turned out, so have a picture:

They're for Valentine's Day, for the incoming guests at the Guest House I'm working at. The squiggle hearts and blurt hearts (named due to how I made them) are a mild chilli dark/milk mix, and the swirled ball-thingies contain a cinnamon/nutmeg (and a dash of paprika and vanilla essence) spiced chocolate ganache.

Now I just have to wrap them up in red cellophane, keep 'em in a fridge, and set them out with a short note :)

Both on my flist and not on it yet, Merry Christmas, and Season's Greetings. It's a little over two hours until Christmas day, and I'm half drunk and about to pass out thanks to my work Christmas party, but I hope you enjoy your holidays and welcome the New Year in with style!

And may 2012 not be the zombie apocalypse we're all expecting, but much more laid-back and easy going :)

Then again, a zombie apocalypse would save me from having to do stuff this year. Oh, mutated virus/end-of-the-world insanity, wherefore art thou?

(And yes, I'm well aware the apocalypse is happening at the end of 2012... doesn't mean I can't hope ;) )

MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS.

Oh and finally, for those who were waiting on Christmas cards, I hope they got to you. I still haven't received anything, so I'm hoping that the kerfuffle of a 2010 posting issue isn't happening again.

Much love.
lemanya: (fuck- going to hogwarts)
And so very little time.

I mean, I still have big bangs saved from LAST YEAR to read through. It's because fandom is just too awesome, producing a million awesome things a day.

It's hurts, when I see goodies to read and all I can do is click "add to favourites". In my defence, I'm starting up training at my new job, while still working my old job and battling my sleep problems.

ALL I WANT TO DO IS READ. GO AWAY REAL LIFE.

Also, I just typed all that in the HTML window, and spent all that time wondering why the hell my font was wonky and where the hell my option buttons were :\

And my uni results are released in the morning. /o\

Christmas?

I'm considering doing Christmas cards this year for anyone that would like one. Or if you're not religious, a card celebrating present-giving.

Comment, or PM with a full address, and a preffered name (not only a name to put on the address, but the name I shall call you inside the card).

Comments are screened, to protect privacy :)

And p.s. It'll never be too late. Even if it's December 26, I'll get one out as soon as possible celebrating new years, or something.

OVER 5,000 WORDS AND JARED HASN'T EVEN MET JENSEN YET.

On the bright side, I'm over the word minimum, and for the first time in my life I will write something with length to it, and prove that I can in fact do so.

On the dark side, I'm nowhere near finished and the draft is due in like, a day and a half *panics*. I'll send in what I have with a very apologetic letter as to why it doesn't have an ending. My reason for only being 5,000 words in instead of like, 10,000 (at least) like I wanted is that every single MAJOR assignment for uni was due in fucking October, so LJ got put on the backburner, and reversebang only gives a month (this time around) to write the damn thing.

Also, I have to write my statement of intent for my honours application, due tomorrow. Which I HAVEN'T STARTED AT ALL.

I usually hate acronyms, so here's the full version:

Fuck My Life.

Also, I want Sherlock to come back. I miss it.

My laptop got corrupted. Big time. A virus slipped through, one of those ones that disguises itself as an antivirus program, and messed everything up. While I managed to get it off my computer with relative ease, something happened to my login, which caused it to go haywire and tell me that none of my programs existed, and thus I couldn't open anything, not my true antivirus, not the internet, not even freecell.

I just about died.

Thankfully, not only could I access my files (so all my documents, pictures, music etc) but when I opened a new login, everything works perfectly, so I'm saved! And have spent the past two days moving everything across from one login to another, including the highly extensive favourites bar- that had ALL my websites that I couldn't remember the addresses to and ALL the LJ links- that's over 100 stories, pages and communities saved! Phew.

So now, I have even more to catch up on, since I lost three days worth of reading up on not only last years BB's that I haven't finished, but this years too, plus whatever came out in the last few days.

Sigh.

Just got home from a midnight (okay, it was 12.30 am that didn't actually start till 12.45am) screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part Two).

Eeeeeeeeeep! I loved it. There were parts I was iffy about, and parts that I had to laugh, because it was a bit ridiculous, but overall-

I'm going to miss it so much. It was so worth it.




Oh, and I have a Castiel meta in the works- should I post it up, or not bother?

Check.

My final exam for the semester is tomorrow, and I can't wait for it to be over. Then I'm going brunching with my uni mates to celebrate no more classes for like, two months. Then I have to pick up my cake for my birthday celebration tomorrow night. And then my birthday week and a half will be over.

In the mean time, I'm sharing this video.

Why I'm posting this really odd video... )
Enjoy!


It just occured to me that our names are in the credits, so the anonymity in this post is for naught. Oh well.

Right now

~I have a J2 podfic going on in the background.
~I'm tipsy off Sangria.
~I have polish of five different colours on my fingernails.
~I don't even wear nail polish normally.
~I'm a little upset I didn't attend Sydney's slutwalk today, but it was rainy, and two hours away, and I didn't quite know how to tell my parents I was going to a rally in Sydney so they told me I had to make pancakes and clean the house.
~Those pancakes actually turned really delicious and fluffy, for the first time in my pancake-making life.
~I'm thinking about that mid-season finale of Doctor Who that's got me all like whuh?
~And so yeah, I turn 21 in two days. I'm all growed up.
~And I still haven't started studying for my exams, which are next week. Oops.

Blergh.

IT IS ONE WEEK UNTIL I TURN 21.

I AM SIMULTANEOUSLY EXCITED, SOMEWHAT TERRIFIED AND INDIFFERENT.

Also, I had a really shit semester for uni. I'm so glad it's over. Well, sort of, I still have exams.

pa-chow!

You may be wondering why two days in a row I posted some inane little story about something in my day, and then suddenly didn't. Well, the answer to the first part of the question is much more interesting than the second, so I'll start off with why there have been no more.

It's simply because I didn't have a story. I started one about roadworks, and then today I was drafting one up about the backburning that's currently going on in my area, but they both were going nowhere, so I didn't finish them.

But Lemanya, why did you do them in the first place?

Well flist, it's because I've decided that they're going to be my new 'get happier' campaign. Because I'm not a happy person, and there's a lot of things I don't like about myself, and I focus too much and too long on all the negatives, but fell like a douche and a wierdo when I try and think about all the positives.

But this, the inane storytelling about things in my life, I can do. I can talk about the things I'm happy to talk about, laugh at myself when I have complete stupid moments and occasionally, I may bitch and complain, but I hope I only manage to do it in a witty way.

In other words, I'm going to blog, and it's going to make me better.

And with any luck, it'll set a spark wire to the writing bug's backside and electrocute it  into action. I miss writing.

And on another note, I bought new pillows, which I have been needing for months. My neck hurts from bad pillows.

See? I'm on a happy health bender!
