(I've tried patience)

"If you give him half the blanket maybe he'll stop kicking you in the head..."

Kids! I'm hopeless with kids. Sigh.
Here at aegidian's, fighting off unhappiness. Managed to leave my phone at home so don't know whether someone has contacted me about seeing me this week - though I suspect probably not. Which would be a shame, I really want to see them. Ah well.

Nevertheless a week tomorrow it'll be time for Cambridge again - there are several people I'm eager to see again...

Right. Well, off to try to find something to distract me from the black cloud following me around...

    'Baggy Trousers', Madness.

Mmm. Pretty. Yay!

Trying to show aegidian pictures of The Prettiest Man In The Universe, I discovered to my horror that my very favourite one had gone AWOL. And subsequently discovered that it's useful to be staying with a geek, as he tracked down the picture for me. I'd forgotten how pretty it was.
And it is Whitby soon, after which there will be yet more pretty pictures! Yay!

I've been trying to explain to people that it's just that I've had to live life vicariously for months, and I'm not really just tracking down pictures of pretty men in eyeliner, but nobody seems to believe me...~halo~

Yesterday and today's viewing has included From Hell, Time After Time, The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy and Charlie's Angels. All of which I enjoyed surprisingly much...scared now. ~s~ I don't usually enjoy watching films. Must be aegidian's bad influence...

Anyway. More when I get home. I love you all.

    'Independent Women', Destiny's Child. Obviously.

Um. ~blush~ Yay! Ahem.

Just got an e-mail from nisaba that really made me feel a lot better. She's one of those people who always manages to be able to say the right lovely thing at just the right time, but this is one e-mail I may just print out and stick up by the door to remind me that actually, occasionally I get things right.

When I meet someone for the first time, I always try to be as much myself as I can get away with - and I'm usually a fairly good judge of just how much that is. But sometimes I just have no idea, and it's awfully reassuring to learn that I haven't managed to hopelessly mess things up, for once.

It may have been noted that I'm painfully shy. But sometimes people just happen to me.

Before this musing gets specific and thus makes me want to hide behind something, I shall go and see if there's anything on TV besides Ricky Gervais making me want to strap him into a chair and force him to watch all the Eddie Izzard videos from end to end for all eternity.

But. Yay! And things.

    'Popcorn', Hot Butter. A very very silly instrumental.
