Got some money to spend

Have bought more Serif stuff. Photoplus10 includes animation stuff within the damn programme, so hopefully I can finally have a quick, easy to use animation thingy.

Am tired. Couldn’t get to sleep last night. Watched half of Lost because we were watching The Golden Hour, which, predictably, I loved. It was all BOOM and flashbacks and clocks and angst and sweetness and Charlie Brooks was in it :) And Josh Holloway really does get fitter every episode.

I was thinking the other day, you know, I could actually have a whole journal devoted to the food I eat. I love food. Tuesday we had steak, jacket potato and salad, which was yum, but then Lesley topped it yesterday with gammon done in the slow cooker with beans, vegetables and sweet potato. The gammon was beautiful. I said I was going to complain to the management because before 2 weeks ago, I’d never eaten sweet potato. It’s so, so yum.

Also, a number of people are bemused by my love of sausages. I don’t know why, because they’re ace.

Um, there was other stuff but my brain is a total sieve this week. Added some interests, which are mainly chocolate brands *snigger*. Also some work stuff. Because sadly enough, I am interested. It has infected me. I want to update my bio. Must think.

OH MY GOD, I know what the other thing was!! How could I forget this? Two episodes of Spooks tonight, YAY! All being well, recap of 403 tomorrow and then I will be free to hold off from watching 404 as long as possible (I believe the current estimate is 2 days). And I’m looking forward to 405 on BBC 3 next week, too.

I nearly gave it all away

I’ve bloody got Waiting For the Siren’s Call and it’s stupid lyrics in my head (‘And travel with a document/ all across the continent’, *hello* Depeche Mode School of Lyric Writing). It will not go AWAY and leave me in peace. Did I mention I went to charity shop yesterday? Bought 4 books (oops) and a load of CDs. Some pop fan had donated (or ex-pop fan, as the CDs were a few years old). Aqua, Britney, Jessica Simpson, Steps, 5ive, A1, Lolly… I got Sugababes’ Freak Like Me on CD (with video yay!) and Money by Jamelia (which also has video!!!!).

Today I feel a lot like Noodle in the Dare video. Omg must get paid account with more icon space (though is anything ever going to top this one?)

Have posted WTD ficlet to wholenineinches. Woo. Am being stupendously (ooh, there’s a word I haven’t used for a while) productive with fic atm. And new WTD on Sunday, yay!

I really am the last person on my flist to do this, aren’t I? *sigh* Is a very yay post.

Also, a poem, because delgaserasca posted one and then it said to post one in your journal so here I am. No proper adult poems here, oh no. Instead, one from a children’s book of poetry Dear and I used to have. Possibly the only poem both of us can recite off by heart.
