Trying very hard not to buy any more knitting and sewing stuff until she uses what she has
Versed in IT, Customer Service and Cooking. Now turning half an engineering degree into Teaching Maths and Science to Primary-aged students.
Recently diagnosed as a high-functioning Aspergers person, but then I've always been weird...
Writer of fanfic and currently trying to write my first serious novel.
I'm cool with people I don't know reading my journal - serious stuff tends to be friends-locked to various degrees. I'm also fine with people dropping me - I don't manage to keep up with as many people as I wish I could, and besides, that's your own journal and you have the right to decide who is and isn't reading stuff. But if you want me to read your stuff too, please comment on this post if you haven't elsewhere.

Sorry - let me ask that again. Tom Hiddlestone and Tilda Swinton as vampires... anyone interested?
But now, my observational skills are starting to kick in. I was browsing through the pantry cupboard, choosing pasta for tonight, when I noticed something odd in the breadcrumbs container. We try and keep things like breadcrumbs in sealed containers to keep them away from moths.
( Herein lies a cautionary tale, or perhaps one of a lucky escape. Or maybe not...Collapse )
First the hippy, aka da_norvegicus, came to stay with us for a bit and wanted to use my computer as his screen was in storage.
And we had the drive up and back to Canberra for quatranoctal's birthday and engagement. And then I had a stack of Uni work.
So I'm doing homework today, and hoping to catch up with LJ on Monday.
If anything important, drastic, notable or silly happened, and I missed it, can you point me to it? Thanks.
So why do I write fanfic?
Because it's fun.
And reading it makes me feel good.
And why am I saying this?
Because the sshg_promptfest is on again!
No, I will not be booking *anything* through Craigslist, especially Amazingly Good Accommodation.
And we already know to avoid United
Also, recommendations for good online booking places, airlines that are worth a little more...
I shall be dubious of anonymous entries, but not completely dismissive.
Poll #1958971 Travel Blues and how to avoid them...
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 11
Which airlines would you avoid like the plague? (Feel free to add other names and/or reasons in the comments)
Any online booking sites you'd avoid for whatever reasons? (Again, feel free to enlarge upon this in comments)
Are there any airlines or online booking sites you'd recommend? Excellent service, accurate info, etc.
Oh - and yes, I know a lot of people want to catch up. That part I'll be arranging much later in the year.
