I just ordered the new laptop I've been promising myself for about a year. It's purple. *glee*

Yeah, not that technically minded. Of course it's the colour that counts, not what's inside it.

*Is too giddy to care about anything, including the past two crappy days at work, and the lack of snow days after the initial one*
safekh_aubi: (Wanda Reality)
Still snowing! Up to something like 7-8 inches now. Roads undrivable, buses not running, normal life refusing to drive. This can mean only one thing.


Yep, I've had the day off work, and it looks like that I won't be able to get in tomorrow either. Stagecoach buses are saying 'As the weather is unlikely to improve as Wednesday moves on it is most unlikely that the situation regarding service levels will change.'


'Course, I still had to do some training from home, but that's a small price to pay for not having to go into work.

Ooo dear, it's getting heavier again...

Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...

Quiet Loner Soul

You are a quiet, solitary kind of person. You probably rely on your few close friends or family members to get you out of the house occasionally, or you would probably forget to leave. You don't like big crowds of people, or being in new social situations, because they make you feel uncomfortable and you get tired very quickly. You need to spend some time alone in front of a computer, book, or television to recharge after expending all of that social effort! You have a lot of personal projects that you like to spend time working on.

You don't spend much time talking about yourself or your emotions. Your close friends and family probably have to try and remember to ask you directly about your feelings, and even then you probably just smile or shrug a lot of the time. People who don't know you well probably forget that you even have emotions at all, because you never get angry or upset. Really, though, you just don't think of your emotions as being important. It doesn't even occur to you to call someone and complain about your day, or to retaliate when someone insults you. You march to the beat of your own drum, and you don't really care that much when other people think. You are calm and logical in nature, and reacting emotionally to things simply doesn't come naturally to you. Perhaps you have been hurt or embarrassed in the past, which makes you afraid to share your feelings. Or maybe you are just naturally that way.

At the same time, you are not uncaring, and you are aware of the feelings of other people around you. When a close friend or a family member is going through a rough time, you are sympathetic and probably wish you knew how to make it better.

Your daemon's form would reflect your solitary, calm, logical nature, but would not be aggressive or intimidating in appearance. He or she would probably spend time talking to you constructively about how to solve problems, or simply watching over your shoulder while you indulge in your hobbies.

Suggested form:
Lizard, Gecko, Manatee, Tree Kangaroo, Grass Snake.

This is me. This is so me it's scary.

It's snowing again! And when I say snowing, I mean SNOWING, as in three inches in about two hours. And the forcast? Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow and more snow, for at least the next 24 hours, possible more.

Getting to work tomorrow is going to be fun.

Had a NWD today, and actually did something, rather than sit on the 'puter all day. Took the Christmas decs down, tidied the kitchen, went to Tescos, did some baking, tidied the kitchen AGAIN, did some more baking when the diswasher was clean, then had to do the kitchen again. Next time, I'll plan it better (and make sure I have more baking trays and mixing bowls). I made Lace Cookies, Rice Krispie Cakes and Macaroons. Rice Krispie Cakes and Macaroons went okay, but the lace cookies, which I was making for the first time, went a bit, well, wrong. First they spead more than I was expecting, resulting not in 10 decent sizes cookies, but two the suze of the baking tray. Also, upon tasting, they left a horrible bitter aftertase. My mum thinks I might have added too much Sodium Bicarbonate, but I did exactly as the recipe said, apart from I melted the butter in the microwave, rather than the hob. And, no, I didn't get teaspoons and tablespoons mixed up, thankyouverymuch!

So, 2/3 ain't too bad, if the two weren't something I've made so often I coud do in my sleep, and something a 5 year old can do. *sigh* I'll get hold of this baking from scratch lark on day.

So that's another year over. Another decade over. Wow. It does not feel like ten years ago, and yet, at the same time, it does.

I was only nine when this decade started. A too-skinny, too-quiet bookworm, only just getting used to the internet. Now, I'm nineteen. I've not only finished school, but finished college and got a job. It could be said that this is the decade I 'grew up' in. I started a child, and now I'm an adult.

And I am so not up to philosophising right now. Too much J2O and not enough sleep make me go a little brain dead.

Oh well. Happy new year, everyone! Here's hope it's a good one!

Your rainbow is intensely shaded indigo, violet, and red.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate energetic people. You get bored easily and want friends who will keep up with you. Friends count on you for being honest and insightful.

Wow, I sounded like a real brat in my last post.

Okay, the good side of Chrismas! Beautiful necklace from my mum, as well as a new copy of Half Blood Prince (My dad took my first edition copy with him to Australia), a huge travel guide type book, a La Senza giftcard, a load of bath stuff and chocolate and some other odd and ends. From my aunt I got a waterstones giftcard and some new nailpolish (she knows me too well) and from my nan £50 and a new diary.

Had a good Christmas lunch (even though I don't eat turkey or most vegtables), my cousin didn't mock me too much and watched White Chrismas and Happy Feet with whole family. Okay, so I was reading Fables during White Christmas. It might me my mum's favourite, but it's not mine.

Came home, and got started on SGA bigbang and Yuletide.

Actually, only had one duff present this year. My dad? Sent me Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Er, no, Dad. Ignoring the fact my mum already has a copy, somehow I don't think it's going to help us communicate better, given you seem quite happy to ignore my feelings and thoughts and blame this whole mess on me.

Okay, I'm cool, I'm chilled. Going back to Yuletide now. Should keep me busy for the rest of the night.
safekh_aubi: (WTF)

My family is a bloody nightmare! The one thing on telly I was looking forward to this Chrismas was Doctor Who. They all knew this. What does my eldest cousin do, while Doctor Who was on? Play with his puppy and make balloon animals right next to me! I miss almost all the sound from the first ten minutes! Then once he had left , my mum, my aunt and my nan start talking over the rest of the episode!

The one that really bothers, me, though, is that no one called my cousin out on it. If it had been me, I would have got in so much trouble. Just because he's older...

Thank the gods I recorded Doctor Who at home.
safekh_aubi: (Wanda Reality)
I'd forgotten the SGA Big Bang fics had gone live...

I've got to got to work tomorrow, I must not start reading now!
Maybe just the summeries... *First story* Oooh, dragons! *click*
See you in about three hours, bed!
safekh_aubi: (Shit)

Bloody Hell. I've just got in from work. Work that finished at five. It's now gone eight. Today started off cold, with a small bit of hail. Than, around lunch time it began to rain. Then sleet. Then snow. And snow. And snow. Because I travel by public transport, my boss let me go an hour early. I get to the bus stop, and find oout that the buses arn't running due to the fact that they can't drive in the snowy-icy slush that it covering the roads. I turn around and go back to work.

Eventually, one of my colleges manages to get her car going and gives me a lift home. but still... The main road is packed. People are just abandoning their cars in the road. Saw a brand new BMW, just left there, in the middle of the road. My mum is stuck one said main road, at what is normally 20mins away from home. She's going to be lucky to get home tonight before eleven.

This is Southen England. We are not built for this weather! And I'm bloody freezing! If it is like this tomorrow, I'm not going to work, no way. Just walking down mu cul-de-sac was dangerous. Remember when I said I liked snow? Yeah, not so much now.
safekh_aubi: (Flowers)
So, not 8 inches of snow, more like two. Still did have my hospital appointment, though. Totally not my fault! The dentist guy was stuck in London. I'm gonna have this brace forever at this rate.

I keep thinking tomorrow's Sunday, and I don't have to go to work. Bah.

[EDIT: Why won't this supid entry work? This is about the 4th time I've edited it]
safekh_aubi: (Default)
It's snowing! Like, proper snow that's settling and everything and it's not stopping! We're supposed to get up to eight inches here. Eight inches! I've never seen that much snow here in England before! We might even get a white christmas. I've never had a white christmas before! That would be so cool!

Wait... *inner 5 year old deflates* I've got to go to Guildford tomorrow, for my teeth. By train. I've already missed one appointment already, I can't miss this one.

safekh_aubi: (Default)
I discovered two things today:

1) I act like a five year old when it's snows. Seriouly, I had this huge grin on my face the entire time it was snowing, and I wanted so much to run out and play in it. Pity I was at work at the time. Speaking of work...

2)I pretty much know all the lyrics to Bohiemen Rhapsody off by heart, without prompt. Given my terrible memory, that's pretty damn good. Yes, I was THAT bored today that I sat there and wrote them all out. No one wants to see a personal banker for anything good around this time of year and sitting right by the door, I was bloody freezing. Stupid heating not working propery. Stupid managers, stealing my little heater.

No reply from my Dad yet. I never actually thought he'd take me seriously when I said don't contact me again. No money yet, either.
safekh_aubi: (Free)
I gave my father one last chance to have a relationship with me. after he was exceptionally rude and insulting to me, not to mention lieing to me, I sent him an email telling him how I feel and and ended it with 'Frankly, Dad, if that is the way you are going to treat me, then I’m not sure I want a relationship with you. I will always love you, but right at this moment I’m not sure you are the man I always thought you were.'

He sends this back:

Wow, some spine at last, you still have not told me what you plan to do with your money?

I dare because I’m your Dad, I think you say tomato and I say tomayto, read the emails again in a day or so when you have calmed down.

Now go tidy your room.


He thinks I'm joking. He thinks I'm fucking JOKING?!

My reply?

Did you actually read my email? I am not joking about this. And it is really none of your business what I plan to do with the money, Just, please, have it transfered to me as soon as possible.

Nevermind, you clearly don't care about what I think or feel. If this is going to be your attitude, please don't contact me again, unless it is to do with the money that is owed to me.

I think I just disowned my father. God, I really, really, don't know how I feel about this. One the one hand, he bloody well deserves it, after the shit he has put me through all my life, and especially the past two weeks. On the other hand, he's my Dad.

I don't know what to think.

I'm gonna go read something now, take my mind off of it.
safekh_aubi: (Wanda Reality)
I have had the Bleach theme song stuck in my head. All. Fraking. Day. Of course, it's in Japanese, so I can't really sing it, which is what I normally do when I have a song stuck in my head. Argh!

Yeah, I brought the Season 1 Boxset from HMV yesterday. Only £15. Bargin, I thought. I've watched 8 episodes already and am taking a great effort to avoid spoilers, instead of diving into fandom head first. I... will... resist...

Just checked wikipedia. There's 13 seasons... *sob* Bye bye incentive for the next 6 months.
But, the English dub has only been released up until Season 4. I'm not sure what's worse, spending all my money on a series at once, or having to wait for each release.

Work Christmas do last night, and Work Quiz night the night before. Yes, I do sometimes have a social life! We came forth, but in our defence, we did have the smallest team (5 compared to the other teams 7 or 8) AND we were the reigning champions. Boo...

One of the fun things about being the only one not to drink (I don't touch alchohol at all)? You get to see everyone acting rediculously drunk, and remember it all in the morning. No hangover, either. Oh, there are going to be some sore heads tomorrow. (Or later today. I need to start getting to sleep earlier)

I have got to stop watching films about WWII. Seriously, every time, I cry buckets!

Just watched Grave of the Fireflies, and am still sniffling 40 minuets later. Anyone who thinks that animation is just for kids? Er, no. At least not the films I've been watching recently. (I've discovered anime. Be afraid, bank account, be very afraid. I've seen Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and now Grave of the Fireflies, with Ghost in the Shell ready to watch)

Situation with my dad? I am literally one email away from never speaking to the lying SOB again. Seriously, I'm just trying to figure out how to word it. I'll do a full post on it later.

Yeah, I'm going back to snivelling in my corner now.

So this whole palaver with my Dad has started up again.

Cut for length and language... )

safekh_aubi: (Wanda Reality)
Remember what I said about not needing anymore fandoms?

One of the graphic novels I bought yesterday was the first volume of Fables, which I read today.

I just bought the next three off of Amazon, after just spending £30 on there on Monday.

*sigh* I'm hopeless...
safekh_aubi: (Default)
So, back earlier than expected, but still...


I now have six new tops, a new corset, a new coat, new hair sticks, new pendent, four new graphic novels, a new Pern novel, the DVD of Spirited Away, new socks and a small adorably soft Eeyore.


And part of my mum's christmas present.

One thing I learned? I should not be allowed into Forbiden Planet with large sums of money. I spent £50 there alone.

Approx. spent today, including train fare, underground and food? £250.

Yeah, fun, but not to be done too often, otherwise I won't be able to afford my rent.

safekh_aubi: (Default)
Damn it, must stop staying up so late reading fanfiction! I'm blaming [profile] lizardbeth_j , posting the next part of Not All That We Are just before I go to bed!

I have no willpower! Now, sleep time, or else you'll wandering around London like a zombie!
