Just poking my head up to say hi [May. 13th, 2011|09:23 pm]

[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

Have you been happily unaware of my absence until this post appeared to blight your fine day? You must have been loving a good chunk of this year because I've just been not finding time to post.

How bad is it?

I've been meaning to mention that I sold one of my photographs for use in the Park Secrets Victoria pack of cards since last year. It's not one of my best shots, but I was approached because of the location depicted (Pink Cliffs Reserve in Heathcote), and who cares because I professionally sold one of my photos! It's something I'm naturally pretty proud of, and I haven't found the time to write about it until now, when I'm choosing not to do one of fifty other things, or resting, to mention it.

Needless to say there's been lots of other good stuff, but finding time to talk about it just ain't happening. I will mention that the Perth trip seems to have made a major difference to me. I'm still run down, but I haven't been continuously sick since the trip. Hooray!

Quick bits of stuff - Swancon was good, the Ditmar controversy was bullshit, Continuum 7 is looking to be awesome, no-one seems to have picked up on the (to me) two glaring potentially important pieces of information that were onscreen in the latest season of Doctor Who, I've been chopping lots of wood (that's not a euphemism), we had a surprise bill of $3000 which is incredibly painful but annoyed us more because of the unexpectedness than the amount, the local pub does chips covered in melted cheese and bacon bits.

Sharon's tired but awesome, Lex is energetic, tiring, frustrating, but mostly fun, MaybeZoe has stood twice and is trying to learn to be as cute as her brother, Mum is mostly okay when not driving us nuts, and I'm tired and depressed but still the prettiest person you know.

I resemble that remark! :)

Congratulations on selling the photo by the way.

Is one of the things people aren't talking about in Doctor Who (SPOILER) that the colours were changing from blue to red and back?

Nope. Nothing to do with the obvious storyline.

And you're going to be silently smug about it, are you? : )

I did like how things like the Doctor's bow tie kept changing last week. It was one of the few bits of that episode that kept me awake.

It's less being silently smug and more being worried that on one I may be right and so I don't want to potentially spoil it for others. On the other I don't know what it means, and I've not seen it mentioned anywhere.

I can email you if you want :)

Totally missed the bow tie changaroo!

Doctor Who

very intrigued about what you've spotted in Doctor Who :-) Does it have anything to do with the Lodger?

I've been doing some internal speculating on the new Who stuff. But most of it is nebulous.
One thing that I think, is that in spite of the 'your past is my future' bit River and the Doctor do occasionally meet out of that sequence. Otherwise they'd never have any diary things in common. I can think of two incidences, one that happened in episode 1, and one that was mentioned in the Library that I don't think the Doctor has done yet, though he could have post Mars I guess. But I don't think he did.

I'm hoping we do see Canton again. I'm liking Mark Sheppard more and more as an actor as I see him in more things.

So yay for photo! Yay for chips! Boo for unexpected bills and yay for not feeling so sick post Perth. I managed to escape the con pretty much unscathed con lurgi wise also.

Wing had pretty good photo of you from the con at flickr so that even more people might appreciate your pretty face. :)

If you like Mark Sheppard, get the DVDs of Leverage in which he plays Stirling, the arch nemesis of the band of ethical thieves.
DVDs of Season One and two are available here.

Season 4 starts on my birthday. Even if it's only in the States, I consider that a nice birthday present.

*love* Congratulations on selling your photograph!

So amazing to hang out with you at Swancon, wish I'd found more time, but so, so wonderful. Hopefully see you sooner rather than later.

*love to all of you*

I had to google the Ditmar controversy just now ... then I had to scroll down through all the past Ditmar controversies to get to the latest one. :D

I was there from the cane toad Ditmars. It was the same year they gave one out for best fannish cat. Good to see they never lost that serious edge.

Congrats on the photo sale - this might be the start of a creative new endeavour.

Xavier was born on the same day as MZ but he hasn't shown any signs of being able to stand on his own or even crawl. His defaut position is "planking".
