So the rearranging of the bedroom furniture went fairly well in the end, we're both pleased with the end result. However, I'm still struggling to get in a full night's sleep, which is very irritating. Saturday night was by far the worst night I've had in a good while, hardly slept a wink, between Jamie's snoring and Fidget's rather irritating "lets go exploring the bedroom in the middle of the night" antics. Last night was better, but I still woke up more times than I'm used to (the one time I get woken up by Fidget wanting a cuddle under the duvet I don't mind so much). We think Jamie may be subconsciously afraid of the lack of wall to his right, as when I woke up this morning I was on my side facing out of the bed, but very close to the edge. Jamie was on his side, facing away from me, but with his back right up against mine with miles of space on the other side.

So tonight we are going to see if we should sleep the other way around. Which may be a blessing in more than one way, as Fidget tends to wake up the person on the left of the bed for cuddles in the night, so sleeping on the other side I would avoid that as well.

Other than furniture moving, cleaning and general sneeziness from the dust, the weekend consisted of indulgent food (fry-ups, biscuits, ice-cream and home-made fish and chips among the offerings), lots of Guinness (well, for Jamie, anyway), much rugby, some painting of miniatures (I did my night goblin fanatics, Jamie started his handgunners) and the watching of Sweeney Todd.

Among the failed acheivements was me not dying my hair, us not making it as far as the gym all weekend and us not having done any laundry or tidying up downstairs. But considering what we did get done, this isn't really all that bad.

This week is mostly all about getting back into the habit of doing things. Going to the gym. Not eating too much crap. Tidying up some more. Boss is on holiday so work should be quiet, which is handy given how tired I am. Highlights of the week are going to include the first episode of Battlestar Galactica new series (or second half of last series, if you want to look at it like that), and the rugby at the weekend. Also, Jamie had a surprise phone call from one of his oldest friends the other day, so on Sunday we are going to go and see him and his fiance as well, which will be interesting.

I feel like I'm the only person in the world who has to go to work today. I know this is untrue, and that in order for me to be doing the things I'd rather be doing, other people would have to be in work anyway (like the barmaids and chefs in the pub, for example). Its just very unfair, that Jamie has already finished (At 12) and gone to the pub and then homeward to watch the rugby, which kicks off at 2.05. And I have to stay here. Where there are 7 or so other people in the office, who also would all rather be at home not working.

I spent most of my morning in the filing room, tidying it up and sorting stuff out. Better than working, I suppose.

Briefly met up with Jamie at lunchtime to sort out one of my Christmas presents (he's very sweet, he bought me a book of music for the piano, even came all the way home to check I didn't already have it.. but didn't check well enough!), exchanging the "Cats" music for "Chicago". Even saved him money, as the Chicago music book was cheaper than the Cats one by £2!

Now I want to go home, and play "Class" on my piano. And watch Sweeney Todd because I bought Jamie some extra Christmas presents the other day (being as how his presents he bought for me were much better than the presents I'd bought for him) and included in those was the Sweeney Todd DVD for £5 from HMV. Odd, but both the single disc edition and the two disc special edition were the same price in the sale! (I also got him Zoolander for £3, and the Duffy album).

But I have to stay here till half five, so I guess there's going to be more filing activity this afternoon. It does need to be done, although I don't think I'll be able to finish it today - there's 15 cupboards (each with 5 shelves). So far I've done 3 of them, which took me 2 hours. I have 3 hours or so to go, so I should get another 3 or 4 done today. Do the rest next week, I think. Roll on my 4 day weekend!
supertinks: (yay)
Ok, so noone is probably going to share my enthusiasm, but I'll have a go...

Jamie and I just popped to Tesco, because I failed to buy cat food with the shopping we had delivered. "Lets check out the cheap DVDs!" says Jamie. So we do. And what do I find........


Clash of the Titans!!!!! For £3!!!!!!!!!


I am happy

its 2am, my living room is a mess of wrapping paper and we just watched one of my presents - special edition Sleeping Beauty :-) (all those not-so-subtle hints worked there then!)

also, I have Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, which looks very cool.

Off to bed now though, as its all late and stuff. but merry Christmas to all of LJ land :-)

Saw Quantum of Solace today. Enjoyed it lots. Also enjoyed not having to pay for it, as I realised this morning I could use my Nectar points to buy tickets at the Vue (1000 points per ticket).

Car was in the carpark you have to pay for. One of those get the ticket on the way in, pay for it at the machine before you leave jobs. We went to the supermarket in town after the film ended, to get dinner and cat food for Mr Fidget. As we were walking back to the car, I saw the time was about ten past 3. I didn't know the exact time we got into town, but I knew it was sort of between ten past and twenty past 12. So we hurry back, hoping to get in before the hour flicks over and we have to pay more. Get to the machine which is nearest the car. There's a foreign woman there, being slow. Checked the time on the ticket - 12.15. Checked the time on the machine. 15.13. Shit, thinks I, i'm not going to make it. So I run down the car park to the other stairwell. There's a man there too! Paying with really small coins so taking ages. I'm bouncing up and down behind him, willing him to speed up. He finally finishes, and the machine spits out his ticket. Within seconds I had mine in the machine. It charged me for 3 hours. I had about 20 seconds to spare!

I am now officially allowed to drive Jamie's Ka. I drove it to the indian restaurant last night when we went to pick up our takeaway. Its very weird, and all kinds of different to my car (which we drove today). Mine feels really heavy and slow and clunky compared to his. But I do love it so.

I have also been doing lots of work on updating tinksworld.org. I've re-arranged it a little bit, and have been busy uploading photos I've taken of the Games Workshop miniatures we've been painting. I've started on the bloodbowl teams, as thats what we've got the most of, although there are a few Chaos Space Marines which Jamie found for me to photograph. I have to say, I'm really pleased with the close-up function of my camera - its awesome.  Go check it out!

Rugby )

Yesterday we did Useful Things, like tidy the bedroom of clothes, and the living room of paper. We meant to do the front room too, but enthusiasm for tidying died so we played Zombies instead. This then put us in the mood for watching Slither, which we duly did and it was very entertaining. Then we watched Brucie's birthday celebration, which put Jamie in the mood to watch the Mask, so we watched that too. I'd forgotten how much that film makes me laugh.

apparently its nearly November. How did that happen!

this year has flown by in a kind of rush, I really don't know where all my time has gone.

Hmm, lets be brief, for I should be working. Recently I have done the following things:

~ went to see Stardust in the cinema. had not read the book, but have read other Neil Gaiman books and they are good. film was very good. Robert de Niro was fantastic, as were the seven princes, and the witch.

~ discovered that I had not spent as much money as I thought I had, and so had enough spare cash to go buy myself some new boots, a whole two days before I was going to get them anyway! couldn't take pics yesterday, as batteries in camera were all sad, so pics to follow when I get round to it.

~ bought Mr Fidget new cat toys, on the basis that we've not tried him on small furry mice before and he might like them. Mr Fidget saw the mouse, sniffed the mouse, was not interested in the mouse. When the mouse smelt like catnip, he was more interested. but it wasnt moving, so he didnt care. when mouse was on carrier bag, being rustled by a feather stick inside the bag, he was more interested, but it still didnt move enough. will have to tie string to mouse, and then he will chase it.

~ found the perfect new scratching tower for Fidget on ebay, but can't get it till closer to Christmas (boo). its taller than the one he has now, with more levels and things.

~ bought orange dazzle dust eye shadow and orange nail varnish. I have a halloween themed fancy dress party tonight, courtesy of work colleagues, so got me a black and orange witch outfit, complete with stripey hat and tights, and bright orange hair! will definately be posting pictures of that tomorrow.

that is all.

oh yeah..

that was the other thing I was going to say.

we got the Snakes on a Plane DVD from Tesco yesterday (we had a voucher for extra points if we bought a chart DVD, and it was the only good one there!) and watched it last night. Andy'd never seen it, and he was much amused.

There are tons of special features which were actually interesting/funny, which was a nice suprise.

And I now have the song stuck in my head.
supertinks: (Default)
well, it stands up to a second viewing!

just got back from the cinema - Jamie hadn't seen it yet so we went this evening. He loved it, and it made me laugh/jump/hide behind my hands just as much, if not more, than the last time I saw it.

Want it on DVD now, so I can watch it all the time!

Also this evening, I dyed my hair red, and put my foot through the bathtub.

awesome weekend. well with some minor drawbacks, but these were totally outweighed by the great combination of snakes, planes and Samuel L Jackson.

I drank faaaar to much wine (and am still suffering very badly because of it - I nearly had to call in sick today as I was still feeling so rubbish), but much fun was had; lots of interesting/entertaining conversation and very little LRP waah (at least on Saturday night).

There was lots of cat, and very very nice food (thankyou Mrs Cat Lady).

And of course, Snakes on a Plane was quite possibly the best film I've seen so far this year. So much so, that I shall be going back to the cinema to see it with Jamie, as he hasnt seen it yet.

Fidget absolutely loves his new feathers-onna-stick, I have pics, but can't upload them right now so you'll have to wait.

I need to sleeep...

Ok it’s been a whole week since I last wrote anything of any use on here. It seems that I don’t have as much time for Live Journal as I once did – is this a sign of me having a more interesting life, or am I just finding new and interesting ways to waste time?

 

Anyway, I keep thinking of things I ought to write about on here, but never getting round to it. So here goes for a proper, probably long-winded account of my life over the last however long it’s been. Apologies for length, I have cut and categorized to try and make it easier for you to read.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hmm not much else to add now, save that Jamie is off to murder players at the Spring Event this weekend, leaving me much to my own devices. Gyms and swimming pools will no doubt fill much of my time, as will Rome: Total War which I am still enjoying playing. On Saturday I drive to Cambridge to visit Mr Beaver, which could go either way really. I’m hoping it will be pleasant and nice and we’ll be able to have a decent conversation about stuff, without having to worry about saying the wrong thing or anything like that. Of course, the main reason for the visit is to get the rest of my stuff, my Discworld books and some stuffed toys I accidentally left behind at the flat in Chester when I moved all my things. But it will be nice to see him again, and see his new house and things. And to see what his new kit is like. And the drive will be fun, except for the M25 bit.

 

Right I’m off into town to go meet Jamie for lunch and stuff. I have said more than enough for one post, I think!

 

woohoo

Jamie, Andy and myself have just been to see Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit

It was very funny. I also liked the Madagascar penguin short film shown before it, I'm now actually tempted to see Madagascar.

Trailer for Ice Age 2 was also very amusing.

Although, the one downer on the evening.. Jamie drove us in Andy's new car, cos he wanted to have a play and see what it was like (as its a brand new car), so on the way there I was squashed in the back seat (its not really meant for more than 2 people), and on the way back Jamie terrified the life out of me by driving down a windy B road at over 80 miles an hour, cos he wanted to see what the car was capable of. I know he was in complete control and it was perfectly safe, but he scared the crap out of me (cos i was in the passenger seat, when he did over 100 on the motorway I was fine, cos i was in the back).

but he's very very sorry about it its very funny. he keeps apologising. :-)
