Well, that’s a best an opening to a long-time-coming update as any.


And I’ll follow with a list of what I’ve been up to (that I can remember)



  • Decided to go teetotal for a while (until New Year at least)
  • Played a lot of pool (with the common red and yellow balls as opposed to the classy spots n’ stripes) and drank a lot of soft drinks.  (That’s how to have a night out in this economic climate)
  • Killed the teetotaller in me with the free bar at the work Christmas party.  Beer bongs and several Aftershock Challenges saw to that: both my idea.
  • Read Twilight.  Didn’t care much for it as I really couldn’t get into the central character of Bella, or their relationship.  By the end when (SPOILERS) she’s begging him to turn her into a vampire, I was visibly grimacing and audibly tutting on the train while reading.
  • Liked Chinese Democracy despite the fact I’m always hated Guns n’ Roses.  Yes, it only came out today, but I’ve been listening to it since Friday.
  • Sent away 8 scripts end of last month.  Have gotten 6 “thank you for play, we’re reading it, we’ll get back to you in 3 months if it’s any crack” replies.  The Beeb one was a pretty postcard.  The two I haven’t heard from are the Finborough in London and the Traverse – which is bizarre, because I’ve spoken to the lit. assistant there face to face, and emailed a couple of times before sending the play in.  I’ll actually send her an email now asking if she got it, as it’s been exactly a month.
  • Went through my usual Oh My God, I’ve Just Spent Six Months Writing Shit phase, a month after completion.  The only difference is that I’ve spewed it out into the world now and I. Just. Can’t. Take. It. Back.
  • Decided I will now have to get act together to apply for graduate LLB course as cannot spend rest of life living payday to payday, scrimping for enough money for bus fare and all this shit.  Surely if I’m not good enough to be writing for a living, I should be able to make a living from arguing.  Over simplified, yes.  Very inaccurate, yes: but it’s my livejournal.
  • Had a few ideas for my next project, but unsure if I can really get into any.  Also considering trying teleplay or film script but it’s always been a turn off due to the more technical emphasis and layout.  I probably couldn’t comfortably and effortlessly produce that with Word, ergo a script writing program blah blah blah, I’m just spewing out loud (read: on screen) now.
  • Given up on Heroes.  It’s truly awful.  The Sylar/Angela stuff is truly cringe worthy and the Arthur Petrelli stuff makes me want to claw my eyes out.  Last I saw, Elle went to get her powers taken away. I don’t know if she’s been on it since.  I’m trying not to care.  KBell’s got plenty of other work.  I’m sure one day she’ll play another electrically charged sociopath again.  Perhaps.
  • I’ve actually nearly given up on most shows.  Seems only Gossip Girl is worth watching.
  • Joined NaNoWriMo on 3rd of November. Wrote 199 words.  Gave up.  The story I wanted (want?) to write lives in a world far too huge and complicated to make up as I go along.  And yes, that’s the beauty of NaNoWriMo but I like planning and researching.  In some ways, it’s my favourite part.  I’ve wanted to take part for several years, but I always forget until too late in the game.  Maybe next year.
  • It snowed on Saturday, for about half an hour after midnight as we were coming out of the bar.  It was quite lovely.



Another thing: There is a truly beautiful sky out tonight.  The stars are so crisp and clear and constellations litter the sky.  Nights like this make me feel grand, yet pathetic.


Anyone who’s been on my flist for a while might have noticed I do slip away every now and again.  It’s not because I don’t enjoy being here and the silly/wonderful/funny/interesting things that happen.  I just generally suck.

Well now, haven't you been the busy little one.
I do hope something good comes of your plays. I would really like to actually pay money and sit in the audience someday when you're all famous and stuff so I can say "I knew you when." Knowing you, as little as I do, I don't believe that you are capable of writing "shit". (Leave that up to me please as I now have two novels in the works and no not NaNoWriMo. I have been procrastinating on them for years and now I'm bored enough to get back to them.)
I'll keep various body parts crossed for you.
And yes, I'm just conceited enough to think that my post to you wrung this one out of you.
And, oh, that sobriety thing? Overrated as hell.

Still sober, still too busy too breathe but missing LJ. I need to get my ass on here on a regular basis. I've a f-list as long as my longest arm to read and a quick glance shows that you've written some fic - huzzah! I haven't read a fic in too long. The withdrawal is giving me a rash.

You absolutely wrung this post of out me, as I'm sure you'll do in future. Always the one keeping me in line.

As for the play superstar stuff? There have been some recent developments that I just have to post about... *obvious tease*

Seeing this reply in my inbox has made a crap day turn to one of joy. I'm sitting here at home with a nasty cold and cough, stone sober and trying to quit smoking yet again. Need I say that I'm a tad despondent about now? It does strike me as odd how a simple reply from a faceless person whom I know only over the intertubes can make me smile like a schoolgirl, but there you go...
And I am hardly the one to be keeping anyone "in line" as I do a piss poor job of that for myself!
And yes, your "tease" has me intrigued! Do tell!

*points to new post and grins*

I tried to quit smoking the other day. It was too cold to go to the shop. I lasted 8 hours... or something. Seems that nicotine does indeed trump laziness.

nice to see you re-surface :)

*takes deep breath, but slips back into the murky waters of offline-ness only to re-re-surface and take another deep breath* :)

Can you keep sucking untill I get there? I have a couple spots that...

Well, I did keep sucking. But then the wind changed and now my puckered cheeks will forever stay this way, just as my mother always warned me. I look like Derek freaking Zoolander and it's all your fault.

I cannot live with the shame of marring your beauty. I am going to compost myself. (But at least you don't look like David Spade.)
