ugh. 5 am. no thank you.
7 I can deal with.
speaking of which. Where's my credit card?
Now begins the long wait
I vish you all a very merry Hanukkah and a fluffy bunny Chinese New Year. *Ahem* I don't know vich festival it really iz, I am totally unavare ov zat kind of zing *Ahem*
Oh dear, I zeem to be hafing trouble vis the catch on my cape, I mean, coztume. Vood zomebody kindly come into zis dark corner vis me and lend a hand? Or any ozer body part for zat matter?
You got colours again, Amaya. Remember, between 'Options' and 'Help' is the 'Admin' section where you can change them. And don't you other guys look for it as it's only for VIPs!
And the holiday is, or rather was, Hallowe'en.
I'm still not 100% is I'm going or not to C4. If I go back to uni next year then I may not.
Congrats Amaya and Snicker on your colours.
Just finished my sociology of deviance exam a few minutes ago. I have all my exams in the one week so that means alot of late nights studying this week plus I've just finished my 3,000 word exam for international security. I had colonial USA on tuesday and i have International security tomorrow and Europe at war on saturday.
Then on the 16th I have to go into hospital for an operation to remove a growth from my arm that's part of the bone. What fun it is to have your arm bone done over with a hammer and chisel and the pain of it all after I wake up fom being sedated.
Then of course is my graduation ceremony on 16th December followed by a big piss-up of a fancy dress party where I'm going to dress up like the prince of wales from Blackadder 3.
I really like that picture, it is hilarious.
Good going Amaya! You swiped them.
And dude Viceroy that operation really doesn't sound so... pleasant. I hope you didn't lose your arm to a loose shot with the hammer and chisel.
Thanks for the congrats everyone! Hufflepuff took the win for the first time ever (I think) and my housemate Persephone came out on top for the individuals.
I was just happy that my house finally won! And with me as head too! Now that I've seen both my house win and previously won the individual title, I think I'll give it a rest for a while at least.
Right now I'm on to the next great challenge - it's the novel writing month and I've got 3500 of 50,000 so far (this is day two). So I may have even less of a life than when I won the last house cup! But I will be happy to get this book outta my head.
Anywaz, Viceroy, you are sounding painful. Which arm is it? Your writing or non-writing one? Here's some good ol' Irsih for ya.
I think it's his right, I'm going to go an visit him. I'll bring The Thrawn Trilogy to keep him busy.
It's my left arm. The growth is at the upper armbone near the shoulder. The main concern the orthorpedic sergen has with the lump is that it may affect the radial nerve that runs down the arm. But the guy who's doing it Dr. Enider is the best orthopedic sergon in Australia, so that's some reassurance that I'm in good hands.
sounds less then fun mate. be sure to have a couple of good books or videos to watch. and a good drop of scotch or whatever your poison is will help numb the pain.
Got my hotel at 5 am this morning for C4
Cool man. Where did you end up getting in?
I ended up getting my 5th choice about a mile from the con centre
Los Angeles Marriott Downtown,333 South Figueroa Street
I looked at the choices and went to the Holiay Inn Downtown website and booked a room there. slightly more (but not much) then the GENCON price but I'm now across the street. at least Glenn and I won't have far to stagger after a day of geeking out
Well, I decided a while ago just to go to the UK and not bother doing the Education degree in Melb. Basically, I have been teaching for the greater part of this year and while it's enjoyable, I've realised that I was actually the most fulfilled whilst coaching gymnastics and tutoring in music. So that's what I'm planning on doing there.
So I may yet be able to go to CIV, however I expect that by the time I can make that decision, it will be too late.
But...I will be able to go to the London convention!
I tried that and was no rooms
I finished my exams. I had my last one on Saturday. Having a exam on the weekend is such a drag, but at least it's over for now. I reckoned I passed international security and sociology of deviance and that I'll get a credit for colonial USA and Europe at War so I can get into history honours. Now I can turn my attention to the uncoming operation.
Viceroy, are you sure that's not Dr Ender?
I'll try and see you in the afternoon if I can, with two books of The Thrawn Trilogy. You're going to love this guy, he's BRILLIANT.
Looks like I won't be going to C4, I really thought seriously about it and it seems pretty much impossible. I have probably as much chance of meeting George Lucas in the next 10 minutes.
It's not the money, I don't reckon that I'll be able to get away for a week once I find work.
Oh well, Viecroy and I plan to go to the midnight showing in Lonnie anyway. He hasn't been to a midnight showing
Midnight showing? Of what?
Oh, btw I have some big news: I'm engaged!
And in other big news: My fiance came back from the UK a few weeks ago and brought back a DVD of the original theatrical version of ANH (it also has the tweaked version, but that's not important) and it has a demo of Lego SW II! It's brilliant.
Of the OT of course! It's 30 years since ANH next year!
Congrats Amaya have you set the date?
Two bits of news from me:
Viceroy, you may want to consider logging off the JC when you uase a public terminal as I came here and you hadn't logged off.
My computer died yesterday afternoon and I'm told the only thing I can do is get a hard drive dump. Any tips Azreal? CDan I save it at all? It's an ex-gov Acer TravelMate520i.
best bet would be to copy al the data off the hard drive. If it's only the laptop and the drive is fine you can get a little external case for $40-50 and put the drive in that it can then connect to any computer with a USB interface.
Hello there everyone! Sabre here, just popping down from the SAFF to say hello...
How are we all?
Freezing in November, it snowed here the other day.
Well it looks as if there's no hope for my PC then.
no the old travelmates would be hard to get fixed now. best bet for another computer would be to keep a eye open for university computer tenders.
Not yet. We have to finish our contracts in China then move to the UK and get set up there, because he was renting before. Oh, and we have to get real jobs again and earn real money so...We don't have any concrete plans.
We're thinking a summer wedding and perhaps a honeymoon in a secluded shack somewhere in the wilderness of Scotland...
We're both a little busy with our nanowrimos right now and my fiance is using the internet connected computer, but I'll get some pics up soon of us and the ring
Sorry to hear about your computer...Perhaps it will meet with my laptop in the afterlife
