Hello! There now follow some handy hints on how to make the most of your Reading My Blog experience:
  • If you don't like my colour scheme (I am aware that many people don't) add "?style=light" to the end of any url to get a different version.
  • If you want to know more about me, click here
  • If you haven't got a dreamwidth account you can still log in and comment or participate in polls with openID.
  • Other platforms I am active on are listed here.

Comments Policy:
  • Anonymous commenting is enabled, although anon comments may be screened before publication; please, if you comment anonymously, give yourself a name. It gets very confusing talking to two anons at once.
  • I don't censor comments unless pushed VERY hard. Red lines include racism, misogyny, homophobia, unjoking advocation of violence, and being horrible about or to people I love.
  • If you want to point out cock-ups I have made, please direct them to Pedants' Corner; likewise if you want to ask me something off the topic of the post please go to this entry - this saves readers' scrolling fingers.
miss_s_b: (Britishness: Tea)
I have mentioned this a couple of times on twitter*, but I guess several of you don't know: last Thursday I had what in olden times might have been termed a nervous breakfdown. I am under various Doctor's Orders, one of which is to do NOTHING at all stressful until a week today. This includes all Lib Demmery - she specified that.

Last night I was a bit naughty and posted a couple more sets of answers to fed party election questions because I figured it would stress me out not doing them more than it would doing them, especially given that one set came from someone I consider a friend, and I would guilt trip myself about it endlessly.

So if you ask me to do something, please don't be offended if I say no. Aside from anything else, this was another Doctor's Order: I have to learn to say no. I have to learn how much I can feasibly take on, and how to say no to the bits I can't feasibly take on.

In happier news one of the things I thought it would be good to do to recuperate would be to see friends I haven't seen in a while, and as many of them are in That London, and my PPC is going down for English Council on Saturday, and we have a Two Together Railcard**, I am coming down to London Not For English Council. I would quite like to do things like have lunch and beer and things (not necessarily at the same time).

Places I remember fondly include The Kensington Crepery (Kensington), The Museum Tavern (opposite the British museum), The World's End and The Mango Rooms and The Cuban (Camden), that pub near Euston station that has lots of real ale and a CHEESE menu, and The Crobar in Soho. I am not averse to being introduced to new places either.

Could you guys maybe email me if you're free on that Saturday and I'll set up an email circle so you can discuss it? I don't want to be doing too much organising (stress) but I do want to see peoples :) And obvs once a decision is made I will happily stick things on google calendar and send out invites and things.




* because twitter is the only thing I have the spoons to deal with at the moment - it's surfable, it's easy to walk away from if things get fraught, and it contains lots of links to intersting things. My linkspam has been posting on here every morning because that's automated, thanks to the lovely [personal profile] andrewducker.

** initially we bought it to save money on getting to York conference***, but it lasts for a year, and so we're finding it useful for all sorts of other things where we must of necessity travel together :)

*** I believe it saved us £3 on that trip. But, you know, YORKSHIRE.

miss_s_b: (Christmas Humbugs)
Of the several on the list, two were acceptable (It's a Wonderful Life and The Muppet Christmas Carol); several were schmaltzy bollocks (e.g. Miracle on 34th St) and one is the most offensive misogynist pile of bollocks that ever bore the name of Christmas Movie, even if it DOES have Alan Rickman in it (Love Actually).

So here's a PROPER Christmas movie poll.

Film one also has Alan Rickman in it, but unlike Stalking and Deceit Love Actually he doesn't break Emma Thompson's heart in it. He does dance to Ode to Joy though :) It's also got the fantastic Coke Can shot.
Film two has cousin Di in it, and has Louis Armstrong on the soundtrack.
Film three has Joan Collins being killed by a murderous Santa and Peter Cushing's heartbreaking performance as Zombie Mr Grimsdyke (those of you who haven't seen the film are laughing; those of you who have are nodding sagely with a tear in your eye)

Vote, my pretties!
