Boxing Day I come down with a headache. Hello, says I, it's almost my time of the month. Fanbloodytastic. The headache predictably gets worse, I sleep on the sofa in the warmth to try and get rid of my migraine, and wake up feeling slightly better Christmas morning. Slightly better. But by Christmas Dinner, period pain's set in, and by the time Casanova comes on telly, I'm in blinding agony. I decided to risk the bedroom, since the cold might soothe the migraine, but then at around three am, and with my migraine no better, the wind blows the bedroom windows wide open, and I have to crawl out of bed in the freezing gale and close it. Bah!

So, this morning the migraine's finally gone, and I feel almost human again. How can one day cause such a mess in the house, anyway?


Anyway, in the deadspace between the waking up and Christmas dinner, there was present giving. I gave many wonderful presents this year. My dad had The Mighty Book of Boosh, which he hasn't looked at because of the PS3, my mum got the Dexter Omnibus, which I've wanted to buy her since we saw the first series on ITV last year, my sister got The Dark Knight on DVD, which we watched today and it was as awesome as I remember it from the cinema. Guh. It was amusing watching that after Casanova; the transformation in Heath Ledger between the two movies showed just how adaptive and immersive an actor he was. My little brother's the most chuffed. He got Little Big Planet, which he's been begging for since he saw it, and the smile that spread across his face at the sight of the PS3 was wonderful. :D

And I? I got a whole new riding kit, new jods, a shiny red new helmet, a luminescent jacket, a pair of new winter paddock boots and chaps. Then there was a ladies' electric razor, a CD player/stereo, a Death Note watch which needs adjusting for my stick wrists,  a sewing kit, a PS2 game called Dirge of Cerberus, and a copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard. The last of which...well, it has its goods and bads. The good is that I have inspiration for a Dramione. *bounces*

So there's Christmas.  Hopefully I'll get some stuff done now. Hah. >.<

I am not here at the moment. Tomorrow is Christmas wrapping day, but I think it will be girlie agony day, too, so it's going to be horrendous, and I'll try and vaguely be here and chairbound. Then the day after that is Christmas Eve, which means preparation of food and making sure the last few things are wrapped. x.x I'm already feeling the exhaustion creeping in. I hope I get some Internet time, but if not, you can expect me on Boxing Day, after I've collapsed, washed up, thrown ridiculous piles of paper into the recycling bins and collapsed again.

In other news, it's so cold here, it's like time trials trying to get in and out of bed in the shortest time. I think I'm going to resort to pyjamas and changing in front of the fire downstairs. That way I can just somersault out of bed and run to the warmth. Log fires win.

Cold. Brr.

Con updates!

Eee! I'll be going to the MCM Expo in London on the 25th-26th, so if anyone wants to meet up, think the week before. I'll be cosplaying Vincent Valentine and a fairy, thus the wings, which are so far looking absolutely awesome, although I expect I'll freeze to death.

The 27th is my birthday, which I'm looking forward to (so long as aforementioned freezing to death hasn't occured), and then um...I'll be killing myself to get my other fics done in time for their deadlines, I think. Unless I get this stuff done before that time, though, I won't be ready for NaNo, which I'd really like to write this year because I have an idea plagueing me.

And then Christmas. Is it that time already? I have gifts to buy and pack and cards to make and send. It's going to be hectic.

But it will be rewarded with Azkatraz. I have flights to plan, and I have to see what plans I need to work into my own. I've never flown, and I've never been to the US, so I'm actually terrified, and I know what it's like when you get to cons, but it's actually rather frightening! Also, I have no idea about hotels. I'd like to room with people I know, by preference, but, heh, I don't know many people, and even less who are going. *fear* I haven't signed up yet. I just signed up. And paid. Holy hell.

Flame, you mentioned going from Heathrow, do you have any definite plans yet? Does anyone else have plans? Plans in the making? Is anyone going to Comic-Con too?

I will be reposting this at the end of October and half way through November, after some of my fic exchanges go out, in the mean time, here is your chance to get onto my mailing list for cards.

This year, I'll be making a variety of cards, and I need a little input from each of you when you sign up. Comments will be screened, and if you want to send me a return card, please either link me to your card post or mention it, and I'll reply to the comment.


Preferred pairings (Max of 3)
Fanfiction or fanart archive or both (optional)

That's it! If you're moving or out of town for the holidays or something, please add a date and I'll try and make your card a priority. Also, if you don't celebrate Christmas, please let me know! I don't want you to miss out on the papercraft love!
