MY LIFE HAS BEEN SO CRAZY LATELY!!!

On Wednesday, [livejournal.com profile] ormery came down to stay with me for a couple of days, and pretty much all of my flatmates, plus one [livejournal.com profile] virtualdon and Squeak went to see the new Harry Potter film. IT WAS SO GOOD I DON'T EVEN. The next one can't come fast enough!! It has to be my favourite so far. God, I love Luna so good, but was really upset they changed Dobby's VA. It bothered me a lot 8( But it was lovely to see it with everyone, and I loved having Squeak around. I missed his lovely face.

THEN my Dad called me to say that he managed to transfer the money he'd brought back with him from Bermuda to my bank account, which meant that I could pretty much buy a Mac whenever I wanted! SO FAST FOWARD TO SATURDAY, I went into Cardiff, and with Donya's help, I purchased a Macbook Pro with Apple Care for three years, and cried at all that money going in one swoop (even with almost £500 off for being a student). But oh my goodness it was so worth it. I have spent pretty much all of today TOUCHING IT GLEEFULLY and admiring how pretty it is and getting used to where the different keys are and new shortcuts (not that it's going to take me long to get the hang of, since I've been using macs for years). And. GOSH. It is so pretty I don't even. So worth the money. I have named it Cupcake because I am predictable. But now I have very light savings to last me till January. Which should be interesting. I had to open up icon commissions, but I doubt I'll get any. Would anyone be interested in art commissions for £5/£10? I'm not sure what kind they would be but I need the money :(

ANYWAY today has sort of being a crazy day of fail when it comes to our house. Because it's been so cold lately (about -2 Celsius for the past three days IN THE DAY TIME AND IT SNOWED WHAT THE CRAP) all of our external pipes are frozen. Which caused our washing machine to spit all it's water onto our kitchen floor. So our landlord came around and took off the frozen pipe outside, which means it's spurting water onto our pavement instead of our drain but it's a fix till the weather clears up. AND THEN not an hour later, we notice a huge puddle coming from under our boiler, and one of the pipes is dripping scarily fast. So we call him back and he comes back out and, again, it's because of one of the external pipes had frozen so the boiler condensation pipe got backed up and overflowed.

And then we realised the toaster had given up the will to live.

FML.

But anyway other than being cold and slightly damp and toasterless, I have a beautiful laptop, had a lovely week and I'm quite content. It's probably going to change because I have a deadline fast approaching and I have thirty seconds of test animations, a three minute animatic to do as well as a whole bunch of concept art and blog catch up, so the stress is kind of getting to me. SHOULD BE INTERESTING. And once I hand in, I get to go home for the winter holidays. Looking forward to that. BUT TILL THEN, WISH ME LUCK ON MY DEADLINE.

You'd think I'd learn to do my work on time 8|;

EDIT: ALSO ME AND [livejournal.com profile] peypea ARE WATCHING SEASON ONE OF SUPERNATURAL, AND FINN HUDSON'S ACTOR, CORY MONTEITH, IS IN THE WINDIGO EPISODE AND GETS EATEN BY A WINDIGO. AHAHA I NEVER NOTICED BEFORE but it was a funny realization.

So it’s been a while since I updated this, and in the interim I went to SDCC, left the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin’s company and flew back to JFK, spent the night in an airport and then flew to Bermuda, which is where I am now. I’m going to write a report on the con, SO THIS ENTRY IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE VERY LONG WINDED as it’s way overdue, but I shall try and keep it short!

But this picture basically summarizes my trip to San Diego:


There was a big Marvel Wall. The Young Avengers had a tiny space to themselves (Cassie and Vision were futher up and Billy WAS NO WHERE TO BE SEEN 8C), and it must have been FATE OR SOMETHING BECAUSE TOMMY WAS THE ONE WHO WAS GROUND LEVEL. FUCK YES I WAS SO HAPPY I DON'T EVEN.

HERE IS WHAT WE DID. If you’ve already read [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin’s report, it’s going to be pretty similar since we spent the majority of the weekend together except you get a running commentary by me, aren’t you lucky. :D


WEDNESDAY - DRIVING AND PREVIEW NIGHT )

THURSDAY - TRON PANEL, AWESOME ARTISTS AND FINAL FANTASY CONCERT )

FRIDAY - BATMANS AND SURPRISE JESSE MCCARTNEY )

SATURDAY- MOTHERFUCKING MARVEL SKJFNKGJ )

SUNDAY - SUPERNATURAL, GLEE AND HOMETIME )

So much for keeping that short, uh.

Oh man though, IT WAS SUCH A GOOD EXPERIENCE! I really want to go again next year, this time armed with business cards and portfolios I think, since I had a couple of people asking for my card and I didn’t have any with me. Derp. I met so many amazing people and had SUCH A GOOD TIME DKJNF ;____;

So about a day after we get back from comic con, I was flying out of Cali and back to JFK to finish my American Leg of this trip. I cannot express how much fun it’s been. I’ve met so many people I never thought I’d have the chance to meet, and I am so appreciative of all the people who housed me and came to see me. I love you all and I hope if you’re ever my side of the world I can return the favour. Seriously thank you all so much <3 <3

Spending the night in JFK was pretty uneventful. I bought a redbull and downed it, and stayed in the baggage collection lobby. The only working outlet was in a Dunkin Donuts, and the people behind the counter were kind enough to let me sit in the store on the floor all night. Of course, the only working outlet had to be RIGHT NEXT TO THE FRIDGE so I was fucking FREEZING all night. My will to be warm was overridden by my will to have internet though. Seriously, THIS IS WHERE I WAS SITTING FOR ABOUT 7 HOURS OMFG.

BUT NOW I AM IN BERMUDA doing family things and working my way through the entire Temeraire series (Currently on book three, already have a Maximus muse FUCK). I’ve had a bit of a turbulent time here, but that’s saved for another journal because I’d rather keep this one as upbeat as I felt coming back from comic con. Needless to say, I can’t wait till I get to go home on the 15th. I miss all my English dudes and I want to sleep in my own bed!

BUT BASICALLY: I FUCKING LOVE YOU ALL <33

aaaaaa why

So today I got the most horrifically depressing idea for a Young Avengers fanfiction, and I have decided to share my woe.

At dinner tonight, we were watching ER, and it was about this kid who went to the movies and bicycled home with his friends, but got run over before he got home. He went into a coma and his grandmother had to decide whether to take him off of life support and let him go because he was brain dead, or to keep him on life support.

The kids name was Billy.

Which of course made me think that him being in 616!Earth was all a coma induced dream. And the fic would switch from him doing missions on the team, having fun and meeting teddy and falling in love and shit and the grandmother trying to come to terms with her decision, trying to tell herself that when she squeezed his hand it was just a spinal reflex, not him squeezing back. Eventually, she'll turn the life support off, which will either make Billy's dream fade away and he'd die in the 616!world too, or he'd be trapped there.

I almost cried as I was thinking it up.

But uh, yeah. I'm a terrible person.


/adds it to her fic-that-needs-to-be-written-but-probably-never-will list.


In other news I've started watching Supernatural as LivingTV started it from the first season, and though I missed the first episode I'm rather enjoying it so far! Dean is so cute, I want to squish his face. I'm also happier that Cap might be played by Dean's actor in the avengers film. I think he'd make a cute Cap.
