current mood: happy
My car is costing over £300 to repair. I do not have £300. I am so pissed off >_>
I just spent the whoooole evening making icons instead of drawing. And Christmas is fast approaching... I'm so lame. I was going to draw something and then send it, but missed the last post abroad (ie Monday gone). So I decided I'd do it in time to upload it for Christmas. And now, now I'm being distacted by Kingdom Hearts, Tsubasa, Bleach, Amatsuki and whatever the hell else I've spent about three hours making icons of. Oh dear, oh dear.
Alison, you might end up getting your Christmas present in January. I'm so sorry ^^;;;; I'll try and at least get an illustrated story up for Christmas. And maybe draw some more, ah, pictures with three people in them in the meantime ;D Mmm, twins. Ahem.
And Jennie and Kelly, too, part of your Christmas present will be late because I had to get it delivered to my Mum's. Rawr.
Man, I suck at Christmas presents this year ^^;
In other news, my Lily Hoshino doujin and pretty Tsubasa doujinshi came the other day. Oh, how I love getting post <3 And I love doujinshi.
Oh, and a girl at work the other day didn't know what gravity was. Obviously my company only hires the best.
Which Final Fantasy Character Are You?
Hahahaha xD I find this amusing. And true. Especially since Laguna's a bit of an idiot >_>
I was going to redo some of this before I posted it, but I'm not going to have time until at least January ^^; So I'll post it now.
This is my entry for this years Rising Stars of Manga UK and Ireland. While it didn't I win, I'm still quite happy with it (compare it to my entry for RSoM '05 o_o - though I still love that story). Apparently the BL is more blatent than I meant it to be xD But what else would you expect from me, lol! I kind of wish I'd done it at a bigger size (the size you see is pretty much the size I drew it at), but if I had, I'd probably still be drawing it now xD I'm going to try and be more organized next time! More organized generally, in fact...
~clickity to read~
Congratulations to dark_persian, whose fantastic entry First Train did win a place in the book, and you'll be able to see her beautiful story in the RSoM book when it comes out next year.
From the ICAP home page, on the MDA (minimum drinking age) and MPA (minimum purchasing age) of alcohol in the UK:
The MDA and MPA are 18 in bars and off-licensed premises. The MPA for certain drinks, however, is 16 when purchased for consumption with meals in restaurants or pubs with separate eating areas. These drinks are beer, perry, cider and, in Scotland, wine. The MDA at home is 5, given parental consent.
Five? FIVE? I hope that's a mistake... >_>
I finally got round to picking my Tsubasa calendar up from the post office depot. OMG the Horitsuba one is sooooooo cute! I really like the one of the Syaoran twins, so adorable. It's on my coffee table atm next to my Horitsuba pencil case <3
...which I completely forgot to say anything about. Picture heavy!
First, moving house. From Roundhay, one of the best areas in Leeds, to Holbeck, one of the worst. Fortunately, the few streets where I live are much better (and safer!) than the surrounding area.
( A few pictures of my manga-shrine- uh, I mean, roomCollapse )
Amecon. Ame was fun ^^ I can't believe it's selling out so quickly this year. Crazy! I didn't buy too much, since I'd bought most of what I wanted at Acen, but I'm pretty sure I still managed to overspend xD I insisted we go see the Tsubasa dub (I wanted to see how terrible it was) and left halfway through, after loudly whispering that a) Monica Rial sucks, b) Kurogane and Fay are otp and c) spoiling everyone there anyway since I was dressed as Infinity Fay. Bwahaha! I don't actually recall going to that many events, but just hanging with friends is the funnest part of conventions!
( Some pictures...Collapse )
Paranormal investigation. My brother runs a company that organises paranormal investigations - or ghost hunts, if you prefer! Check out his website to see if there's going to be an investigation near you. Lol, pimp0rz. The most recent one I went on was in a pub in York. It seemed completely unhaunted, to be honest, not much happened and it was quite comfortable (and the coffee was amazing <3).
( But take a look the pictures and see if you see anything...Collapse )
And speaking of the paranormal, my brother also wrote a book based on the subject (he's a parapsychologist) which can be found here if you're interested (with a cover designed by moi!). Lol pimp0rz too.
Commissions. I've also bought a few commissions of Brennan, and they're amazing <333333
( Check them out!Collapse )
I also went to London with dark_persian, but she took way more pictures than me, so check out her journal if you're interested.
Hmm. I think that brings us pretty much up to date. I've been working like crazy on a project, but I'm keeping it under wraps for now. Since I didn't win anything in Rising Stars, I'l post my entry at some point, as well as the Manga Jiman entry that never had a chance, because I never finished it (in fact, it's still not finished). But that's for another time :)
I'm also enjoying the John Carpenter season ITV4 are showing at the moment. Tonight is The Fog - well, it was on last night too but I wasn't paying attention and only saw the last half hour or so... So I'm going to go watch it now and pay attention this time :)
God, I suck at online life. I just have so much going on IRL atm that I can't keep up >_> Sorry, flist. And on top of everything I'm doing I really need to do overtime because I need the money. Ah well, Christmas soon and a whole five days off work (and that's including Christmas and boxing day >_> ). And birthday too! I'll be so old! xD And I finished my present shopping last night, through the POWAA of the internet. I was going to buy cocktail associated tat for mine and Jennie's party (Harry Pottah themed, my house, the 18th (I think), bring presents) but I managed to restrain myself. Would Slytherin's really have glitzy cocktails (...why yes, yes they would xD Especially the Potions Master. He'd love to share a Kinky Orgasm with Remus ;D).
I have Ame and related accomodation booked now, hurrah. But! Alas, it seems I won't be able to go to Acen this year, which makes me sad. But I suppose it'll save me money - last year I overspent by $400 o_O But just think, all that anime merchandise I'll miss out on! Oh, how truly sad.
And I might as well post this here, because I'm never going to finish this at this rate. Tsubasa fanart with spoilers but I'm sure everyone already knows them by now...
