My life = MADE.

So, just like everyone else in the whole of fandom, I've been going into paroxysms of joy over the fact that Meg is on Twitter. I have a Twitter (@herdofbots) that I never use, except to stalk the Skins cast, but I keep getting the urge to tweet things @meg_prescott, all of them completely stupid. Like, I want to send her a link to the adorable nomming baby hippo and see if she just spazzes the fuck out.

... Oh shit, the person that posted that on Cute Overload? HER NAME IS MEG. I'm pretty sure the Pope isn't moonlighting as a blogger, but LOL FOREVER.

In other news, I didn't realise what a multishipper I was until I was planning out my Skins fic for NaNoWriMo earlier today and realised that I was including:

4 pairings I actively ship and want to end happily ever after
1 pairing I used to hate but am warming towards
1 pairing I like but am only really including out of obligation
3 pairings I hate (2 canon, 1 not), and
1 pairing just for the lulz.

Solution to this ridiculous, many-sided love polygon: orgy??

- Kaya Scodelario continues to be hilarious and adorable on Twitter. Her nan drove through a fence on a quadbike! AMAZING. Kat and Meg need to do a hilarious interview at some godawful film premiere if they want me to remember how much I love them.

- Yesterday was the Caribbean Carnival in Leicester, which is one of the few things about my home town that's actually pretty awesome. (I didn't actually know it was on, but I was in town and, well, it's kind of hard to miss.) I got a few (rubbish) photos of some of the cooler parts on the parade under the cut )

- I'm making slow progress on the 80s AU, which is up to about 4000 words at the moment. I'm kind of enjoying writing it, but this is my first time writing an AU and it's HARD. I feel like I have to have a completely different approach to characterisation; most of the relationships on the show are very much tied to the circumstances, so if the circumstances change the character dynamics do too. (For example, Emily isn't in the fic, so Katie and Naomi's relationship is completely different and I have to figure out how to make it still seem authentic.) UGH, WRITING. WHY DO I BOTHER.

- I've been re-watching Weeds from the beginning and fuck, I'd forgotten how good the early seasons were. Conrad and Heylia > Esteban. (Also, the early seasons had the advantage of not having a stupid pregnancy/baby storyline. I don't mind it a huge amount, but I don't think there's ever been a baby storyline that I've actively enjoyed. In like, ANYTHING EVER.)

- Is it just me, or has LJ been a bit useless at emailing notifications lately? I think I've got most of them, but if I haven't replied to comments or whatever, I promise I'm not just ignoring you.

OMGYAY #1: I've FINISHED MY DEGREE! Got my last essay in on time, and while it wasn't great, it wasn't a complete mess. Whatevs, I've finished! \o/

OMGYAY #2: Apparently there was some sort of Skins BNF conspiracy to post fic last night, and now I have a metric fucktonne of awesomeness to read! \o/

OMGYAY #3: I bought The Demon's Lexicon! I'd heard mixed things about it but I'm quite enjoying it so far. Plus, it makes me giddy to a) read a book set in Exeter, and b) own a real published book by my second favourite fic writer ever. \o/

OMGYAY #4: It's SUMMMMER! Now I'm no longer holed up in a boiling hot computer room the sunshine is making me SO HAPPY. I think I'm going to have a random day in a seaside town soon, I just need to pick somewhere that's easily accessible by train. \o/

HOW ARE YOU, FLIST? I've been terrible at commenting on people's RL stuff but I'll be better, I promise. *hugs* to everyone who's been having a rubbish time of it lately.
