I have convinced my mostly anti scifi/fantasy reading group to read Temeraire by Naomi Novik. (I got the historical fiction fans onside with the argument it's a regency book. But with Dragons.)

I am so pleased with myself yet scared they won't like it. I love this book too much to be at all objective. Argh. Oh well now I have an excuse to reread. :)
snowbryneich: (I love Lush!)
So I missed swimming today because I slept in and did not have time to go before I had to be at Lush in the Metrocentre at 11. (Yes I did have a set time to be a Lush XD) They had asked for volunteers on the local facebook page because they were launching their new perfume Tuca Tuca today (it's been available for a little while but the launch was today.) And I had said I would go - of course I said this before I knew what was wanted. The perfume is named after a dance. They wanted people to do the dance - I went along and learned the dance but due to the uneven number of people willing to dance I just ended up being a perfume spritzer. I was apparently the only person who committed on Facebook who actually turned up. (Speaks volumes about Facebook really.) There were not a lot of dancers which does not mean Gateshead has much change of winning the youtube hit contest unfortunately.

But it was fun and after I went for coffee with another regular customer who had come along to spritz. We each got a goody bag for volunteering. I was not expecting this and it was a nice surprise. Especially when I saw what was in it. It was about £50 worth of stuff! (Though this is in large part because Creme Anglaise is their priciest body and hand cream, so I never would have tried it if not for having a large tub of it for free.) And I have a small bottle of the perfume because that was in too - I like the perfume though I am not really a perfumey person. (I do not like the dance though the song is growing on me).

All in all a good day! And back to swimming tomorrow.

In the aid of spending less time messing around on the internet, (haha yeah right I know) I just did a massive flist cut. No-one is really missing out because I hardly ever post or interact with anyone on lj. But if anyone wants to be refriended just comment and I will.

Just a notice that I won't be around for a day or two due to a hospital appointment, tests and sedation (fun times).

Someone just came into our office and asked 'what floor is this?'


We have floor length windows

You can see the street outside and the cars going past.

We are right next to reception and the front door of the building.

We all stared at him and eventually someone told him ground. I don't think anyone believed he was really asking.

I think I am getting a migraine so I should go to bed but my leaked stargate thingy has downloaded and I want to watch. *debates being not sensible *

RP peeps I tagged everything I owe but will not be around to tag. Hopefully back to vaguely normal tomoroow.

Gather all your RP journals, list the characters and any AU versions you RP. Open the post to the public so even lurkers can ask the muses questions. Respond with that RP account.

Doesn't say much for this memes ability to test your grammar that I got an A but I suppose you can't test for tendency towards absurdly long sentences in a meme. :P

You Scored an A

It's pretty obvious that you don't make basic grammatical errors.
If anything, you're annoyed when people make simple mistakes on their blogs.
As far as people with bad grammar go, you know they're only human.
And it's humanity and its current condition that truly disturb you sometimes.

Am back from shops! unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it the place where we were going anyway had the absolute cheapest price for Harry Potter.

It was £5.00 a book (as opposed to cover price £17.99 or the £8.99 I've seen it advertised else where.) We got three. However it was about four or five times as busy as it's been on previous book releases due to this price drop (which apparently had been advertised not that I've seen it.)

Anyway I am in I have my book, milkshake and donuts and am off to read! Wooo

I am watching Alexander (sort of indirectly [ profile] ashkitty fault, because she's an enabler)

I know it got panned review wise but I'm 40 mins in and I really like it.

But omg the terrible wig ahahah

I kind of really love that the actors playing young Alexander really look like Colin Farrell.

*attempts to resist ordering more Mary Renault's book*

Ahahah omg

I am chatting with Shah from TR (who's lj I don't know) and we are talking about you tube and POTC.

Then I mentioned my current you tube obsession is to put in a fandom and see if I can find a fanvid set to a song from wicked the musical. (You almost always can.)

And of course there is a vid to dancing through life, according to the summary Norrington is Elphaba (ehehehe)

Shah : "This hat and yoooou!"
Me: asfghjj heeeeeee
Me: I want an Norrington icon of him in full uniform that says "This hat and yoooou!"
Shah: YES. XD
Shah: "You're both so!

Icon makers? Pleeeeeeease!
