Wow, I'm really NOT getting into the swing of things holiday wise. Maybe I'm still in shock, but instead of, you know, "partaying it on dowwwn" as they say in the hood1 I have spent two days hiding under my blankets at ridiculous hours of the afternoon, snapping at my mother and huddling in front of my computer doing the same things as I was doing to procrastinate on my work, only now I am procrastinating on LIFE. Also after every second LJ comment I leave I am immediately convinced that I just said something incredibly dumb, which is statistically unlikely even for me. I tried going to UNSW's end of session party at Liza's suggestion, but of course forgot that I needed to bring my passport as ID and just had to go home again, which was kind of the epitome of lame.

On the other hand, today I finally picked up my guitar again for the first time in, it feels like months. It may actually be months because my calluses? COMPLETELY GONE. Oww. Also I had to stop after five minutes to cut my nails because it was really uncomfortable. I've let that go for way too long as well, I started typing afterwards and went "Huh. No irritating clicking noise, whaddaya know."

So this is going to be a post about things that make me happy, because that's more fun than whining. There's a reason Marvin was a secondary character in Hitchhiker's and not the hero: there is frankly only so much "I think you ought to know I'm feeling very depressed" you can take in one sitting. So, current happymaking items!

1. I think I have not yet provided squee here for Empires and their first album, Howl (legitimately downloadable here) but I have so much love for Spit The Dark. And like, a bunch of other songs, Bright Lights and stuff, but I don't know, something about that song just. \o/2

2. Cats. They're still awesome. I'm too lazy and my photographic equipment is too shitty/inconvenient/umkindofmissing to share mine, but have some lolcats!

3. I now have a guitar tuner! My guitar, it is in tune! Like, with an actual objective key, not just with itself! I no longer clash horribly with things! (Except for things in whacky tunings, like, oh, I don't know, EVERYTHING BRAND NEW EVER WROTE? THANKS A LOT GUYS. Fucking flats.)

Not4. ...what the hell, where is my internet? I'M TYPING INTO A VOIIID. ...aaaand we're back.

Actually4. THE ZOMBIES ARE IN THE FORT. <---ridiculous injoke and my new favourite phrase.

5. I nattered on about Stealthgay!Bob to anyone and everyone until [livejournal.com profile] snarkaddict pinged back and we started throwing plot ideas around. And then tangents about how massive and unweildy GSF gets when you try to include all the wives and girlfriends, requiring Gerard to draw up detailed plans with crosses and arrows and cue cards, and also for some reason Gerard whispering subliminal feminism lectures in Frank's ear when he's asleep until Ray makes him stop. So uh. Now we have THREE fics in progress. *throws up hands in glee and bafflement*

What's making YOU happy?



1Well, not MY hood. And probably not in the actual hood that that phrase was based on, come to think of it, but. As they say in a hood.
2I hope you're happy, [livejournal.com profile] impertinence, I'm totally a \o/ user now and it's all your fault :P
