Wow. So appears I haven't posted in this thing for... a while. Sorry, guess this is what happens when RL takes over, eh?

In bullet points:
* I'm back from the UK and missing it like crazy. I had the absolute time of my LIFE, mind, but I miss it and all my friends back there. Not that I'm upset being home, mind. I just wish England wasn't separated by a big-ass ocean
* Am working this summer! I'm working at a law firm here in Erie. HUZZAH. And it's also a PAID internship which is really rare to get. So that's been sucking my soul for the past month.

All in all, I'm doing good. Have a birthday coming up on monday (turning 27. ugh). But otherwise, doing good.

Before you ask, I have not watched Torchwood yet. I will eventually, but I'm not rushing out to watch it. I have a LOT of personal reasons on that front. So... maybe one day you guys will get my episode reviews.

How has life been for you guys? I feel horrible that I haven't been able to keep up lately. ;_;

It's hard to believe I've already been here in London for three months. Damn. Where has the time gone?

Needless to say my semester is done for and, outside of a 3 week internship, I'm done with classes until the fall. It's a fantastic feeling... and means that, for the next while, I only have work to concentrate on. I really want to get back to things fandom-wise after all this time. I know I keep saying that (*shifty*) but there's always been something hanging over my head and made it impossible to actually have any creative juices.

But I feel re-charged at long last. Completely and totally recharged.

I can't say that the whole of this semester has been easy, though. I loved (most) of my classes, but my course-mates were a bit shit. Unfortunately. And we won't go into the place I was staying for the first three months. Let's just say the people were utterly and completely bat-shit. Started out great and about two weeks ago I was told I had to move out because they were going on holiday and had to be out ASAP.

This was told to me on the eve before my Corporations exam and three days after my purse was stolen while I was out with friends. And yes, I lost everything: keys, wallet, camera, passport... yeah. It sucked. So between finals, having to replace everything in my life (and dealing with not having any sort of ID in a foreign country), and having to find a new place to live that didn't cost me an arm and a leg... I had a stressful few weeks.


Now, however, I'm living in Notting Hill and absolutely LOVING it beyond belief. I live a block away from Portabello road and am determined to walk the market once a week. My internship is with a barrister and I've spent the past week in Croydon Crown Court sitting on the benches with the barristers and talking cases with them. And they LISTEN to me when I talk. Life is, at last, good.

And for the first time in about two years? I feel the desire to write. Things for ME. So I have some fics about to be uploaded to my iPad so I can work on them while I travel down to court.

So... uh...

*dusts off LJ*

Er... hai? X)

Here's a wave from the other side of the pond. The first month of being here was absolutely hectic and jet-lagged filled and I'm just now starting to feel like I can put my head above the water. Really, it's taken this long.

I'm both loving it and absolutely miserable here. Loving being in the city as it's one of the few places in the world where I really feel like I'm HOME. I have a couple amazing opportunities coming up (just waiting on a few emails) and the SFX weekender is this weekend. YAY!

Also cool? I was at Tony Lee's wedding last week. He said I'm allowed to brag that I was there -- so here it is. Bragging. *g*

But as for miserable -- this wasn't the programme they told us about. THe Pace London Law programme is billed as "Study abroad at UCL for a semester". When, in actuality, it's "Pace rents out these five rooms from UCL for use during the semester and you get to study in the UK when really you're with all Pace students and, sorry, all your faculty is from Queen Mary not UCL but pay us insane amounts of money anyway!"

Yeah, it's not cool. I'm stuck with 15 other Pace students (and included in there are a few non-Pace students) all of whom seem to know each other and, consequently, leave me out in the cold. Thankfully I have my friends here of the Whoniverse variety.

I'm actually... writing again. Maybe I'll finish that one Fix-It fic that I haven't touched in... *cough* almost two years. *hides*

So yeah. I'll try to get pictures up, and whatnot soon. It's just been a rather depressing first month here. Don't get me wrong, I'm THRILLED to be back in London. Really, I am. It's just the people I'm with that really, really suck.

WELL. How is everyone else!? I MISS AND LOVE YOU! ♥♥♥



ETA: also. There are some of you on here who know me by my real name. If that's the case and you use twitter? Let me know what it is because I'm on that more often than naught. I'm sorry that I'm limiting it to those who know me IRL (or that know my real name) as it's a lot more personal information on there. And, given the whole law school thing, for the next couple of years I really need to keep fandom and RL separate. ♥

Finals

Well... that time is rolling around again. Finals. Joy and kill me now.

But the only good thing is that London is around the corner. Less than 30 days to go, homg. It seemed like it would never come here, but now suddenly, it's here. Hot damn.

Yes, the HP review is coming. And I'm actually glad I waited to write the review until after the third time I've seen it because HOMG there are so many things I missed the first couple of times. So yes, that is coming when I need a study break.

Finals begin on the 13th. Couple more days of classes and then study time. Please, as many good vibes as you can spare to come my way. I could really use it.

Law school. That's all I have to say.

I love you guys, I really do. And I miss you all more than I can possibly say. I just hate school right now.

To quote The West Wing?: "Is the water at your head CJ?"

The water... is just about over my head. But I survive. I just miss you all, so damned much. ♥
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW :: Kissing Book)


Thanks for all the comments on the last post. I massively appreciate them. *snugs you guys* I'm thinking I will finish it. Just... to finish it. I just have to get my head screwed on straight.

In other news -- I'm doing a bit of a flist cut. I've realised that my list has become SO unweildy lately and with doing so much law reading? Yeaaaaah. Not so much with the time to read a flist and seeing how big it is? I tend to wince and run away. Most of the pruning is journals who haven't updated in over a year -- or if some of you had journals, moved to somewhere else, and still kept old ones here.

If I accidentally removed you (because they're ticky boxes... and it could be misticked because they're small), feel free to poke me. ♥ Or, if YOU have a new journal that I should be following? Also poke me about that.

Or if you want to just plain poke me? Go ahead. ♥

*wave*

*sheepish*

RL. It's a killer. It really, really is. Between having some internetses problems and RL in general, well, you know the drill. Life does, however, finally seem like it's giving me a bit of a break. ♥

The Good
Finished my first year of law school. Barely survived, but I DID manage to finish it. Had a wonderful birthday today and ♥ to the well-wishes. *snugs* Am also going to England in a few months. Yes, I got accepted to the study abroad programme in the spring. OMGSOEXCITED!!

In other news? I've pretty much decided what I want to do with my law career. I want to work in the government in some capacity. I'm doing a federal clerkship right now and I've never been happier. It's a lot of work, but the work I'm doing is fascinating and I love it beyond words. I'm seriously considering going into the JAG Corps (USAF). So we'll see. the thought of OCS scares the shit out of me.

The Bad
Issues with school. I had... well, I had a good semester. But it, apparently, wasn't good enough for school. No, I'm not getting kicked out or anything -- but they are taking my scholarship. Which, well, sucks. No probation, no nothing. ;_; we're talking to school sometime this week to find out WTF is going on.

The Ugly
Suppose the stuff about school can go under the ugly category. But, instead, I'm putting the Rainbow People there. Seriously. Look them up and see what I've been dealing with for the past several weeks. X_x

***

I hope you all have been doing well. I'm sorry I haven't been the greatest LJ friend in the world lately. Really, I rather suck. *sigh* But know I love you all to itty bitty pieces -- even if I'm fairly silent over here right now.

And I swear I'm trying to get back into the swing of writing. I know I have some unfinished fics, one of which has been sitting a year. *cries* But really, it's coming.
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW-DW :: ComicCon *iz ded*)
Spent most of the night outlining, but I wanted to take a little break (and, y'know, go sleep) to talk about my utterly unbelievable experience couple weeks back. I actually had written this up a little bit ago, but this is my first time to post it here. That... and I finally could link to pictures the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] mirnell took that day! ♥ [and a couple in here from LJinto]

For the first time, one of the 'cool things' happened in NYC and I was able to go to it.

I am, of course, talking about Doctor Who Premiere Screening hosted by BBCAmerica in the East Village on Wednesday, 14 April 2010.

I went, of course, dressed as teh Captain. ;^) [for those of you who care about the cosplay stuff... I did a combination of things. Basically wore the 'Out of the Rain' Costume (blue shirt, pinstripe waistcoat) but I also took the Hat (tm) with me]. Thanks to the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] mirnell, I was able to go to both my classes on Wednesday and then join everyone in line as soon as I got into the city around 4ish. When I got there? I got mobbed for photographs. X)

Cosplay Pictures Ahoy! )

We had, at the front of the line where the cosplayers are concerned: Me as Jack, Blue-Suit!Ten, Journey's End!Rose, Police!Amy Pond, Femme!Eleven, and Lady Gaga dressed as the TARDIS. Yes, it's as awesome as it sounds. We did a ton of photographs and poses for people and it was generally awesome.

Then the BBCAmerica folks came down the line and they interviewed us cosplayers several times. Don't know how/when/where this footage will be used? But I'll let you know when it is. AND THEN came Doctor Who Confidential. I didn't get interviewed for that, but they got the group of us cosplayers shouting "Doctor Who in America!" There was so much Brit Press around that I lost track of where I was interviewed and who was taking pictures and whatnot.

At some point, a brown suit doctor arrived and there are a LOT of pictures around of the two of us locking lips. Hey, I'll do a fan service photograph!

FanService Ahoy! )

Matt Smith and Co arrived... and pandemonium ensued. It was brilliant. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mirnell getting there when she did, we were pretty close to the front of the line. Surprisingly, that wasn't the highlight of the night.

Massive Story Number One:
We were waiting to go in and I heard someone shout out "Captain Jack!" I turn and an gentleman came up to me, asking if I could take my picture. I said sure and struck a pose. Then... he approaches with his hand outstretched.

"Hi. I'm Ray. I'm the costume designer for Torchwood."

That would be the point when I damn near fell over. I had only a few minutes to talk to him because he had to get inside... but there was one very BRIEF and very IMPORTANT moment:

Me: this is absolutely amazing to meet you. I'm a costumer myself.
Ray: *pause* OH! You're the one Louise [the costume designer for Tennant's years who I met at Gallifrey] sent me a picture of.

I'm so glad he had to go inside at that point because I pretty much fell over and died of shock. I was able to meet up with him afterwards (congratulated him on his BAFTA nom for Children of Earth), and had several minutes to talk with him. We talked about my greatcoat and the hat, and just other costumey things in general. But he came and found me twice -- once before and once after to talk. I'm STILL on cloud nine.

Not only that, but he said he wanted this picture so that he could email it to Louise. XD

Me & Ray! )

Massive Story Number Two:
So... the thing about the Hat. I have a modified US Air Force hat that I've modified to look like an RAF peaked cap for when I wear Jack's Empty Child/Doctor Dances uniform. I took it to Gallifrey with me and over the course of that conventian, Tony Lee attempted to steal it MULTIPLE times. And I do mean multiple. [he even has minions. I'm onto you, Barnaby!!] But since then, this hat has become my trademark. I've taken it to several events now.

Since Gallifrey, the hat has been worn by: Tony Lee, Russell Tovey (Alonso), Matt Ripey (Capt Jack Harkness).

As of now? It has also been worn by Matt Smith.

During the Q&A following the screening, Matt was asked about wearing a hat for the show and to start a petition to get him to wear a hat. At this point, [livejournal.com profile] mirnell is elbowing me to hand him my hat. Since we were sitting in the front row, I jumped up and lunged forward. Matt saw the hat, grinned, and grabbed it from me, shoving it down on his head. So -- if there is video of Matt Smith in an RAF hat? It's mine. :^D He wore it for a few moments, then handed it back, and there's a second clip of me getting the hat back on the BBCAmerica website. :^D

Matt in the Hat. All the funnier if you've seen 'Victory of the Daleks' )

***

Honestly? It's two weeks later and seeing these pictures are STILL surreal. And I'm still on cloud nine right now too. Still.

I have to say? It was SO worth it to skip out on doing work that night. This was a once in a life time experience and it will be pretty damn hard to top this. To be recognised by the costume designer and talk shop for ten minutes? And to get Matt Smith to wear my hat?

Priceless.

SQUEEEE!

I thought breaks were supposed to be, y'know, a break!

Catching up with comments to the reaction post when I get home tonight. ♥ And also -- while belated, I have a TW christmas fic. And two others in the works. What can I say, EoT didn't kill my muse but really boosted him.

But the BIIIIIIG thing! I am going to Gallifrey 21! I'm SO exceedingly excited, particularly as this is my first time to California. I know some of you are going, and some of you I'm rooming with. *cough*

BUT! I definitely want to meet up with folks who are there and just have a grand old time of it. ♥

My flight plans: Going on Wed right after class (17:18 flight, gets in at 23:00); leave on sunday morning (9:50 flight, gets in at 21:02). So if you want to meet up, drop me a line and we can figure it out, exchange mobiles, etc.

And now... off to get tires on my car!
thescarletwoman: (Default)
Awwww! ♥ I love you guys!

This was such a nice surprise to log on today and see a bunch of snowflake cookies. *snugs to [livejournal.com profile] freckles42, [livejournal.com profile] midnitemaraud_r, [livejournal.com profile] letmypidgeonsgo, [livejournal.com profile] mindabbles, [livejournal.com profile] coffee_n_cocoa, [livejournal.com profile] danbi, [livejournal.com profile] pinkfinity, [livejournal.com profile] kerryblaze and [livejournal.com profile] heather11483. Seriously, made my day. :^D

So law exams began today. Order is as follows:
1. CivPro
2. Torts [thursday]
3. Contracts [monday]
4. CrimLaw [wednesday]

I feel MUCH better having one under my belt. Granted, I'm sure I'm going to have a massive freakout on tuesday or wednesday about that exam. But... that's for another day.

Now I'm making myself a drink, relaxing for a bit... and then off to start the Torts Marathon.

Also? It's about 99% sure that I will be attending Gallifrey. What can I say? I've been bitten and bitten hard by the con bug. *sheepish* Anyone else going?

♥ I hope you guys are all doing well. I miss you and I miss being able to check up on things on LJ. I just... don't trust myself just yet to not get sucked into the land of LJ. ♥ Love you lots and thank you for all the good vibes lately. They help!

I swear... one of these days I'm just going to carve out time for LJ. But I've been buried under Torts and Contracts these past couple of weeks. But I do think that, at last, I'm getting *gasp* ahead in my work! At least I don't feel like I'm constantly floundering anymore. Which is a plus.

This deserves its own line: http://www.justgiving.com/iantojones/
Dude, guys. £10,164.72 donated for Mr Ianto Jones. I'm just... that is so utterly beyond all belief!

The Good
• Going to Hurricane Who at the end of the month. I'm SO friggin' excited to go to my first con. And yes, I'm dressing up as Jack. :^D
• Managed to actually get through 4 chapters of Torts outlining and 2 chapters worth of CivPro in the past two weeks. Hence... where I've been. Now all that's really left is Contracts. Go productivity and lack of procrastination!

The Bad
• I still hate my CrimLaw and Torts professors. Mostly CrimLaw. Sad when I don't even know the subject and there are times I feel like I know more than she does.

The Ugly
• Not really ugly... but I haven't had time to WRITE! OMG. I miss it. Like crazy.

In awesome news? I have a fanTASTIC artist to collaborate with on my Torchwood Big-Bang. SO excited. And yes, I'm planning on doing the Torchwood Exchange idea I had a bit back. This weekend is catch-up teims.

*snugs* How are you all? Having a wonderful October thus far? As always -- if there's something I should see as I know I can't check LJ as much as I should... feel free to smack me upside the head with a trout and a link. ♥ I love you guys. And really... the insanity should be coming to an end sooner rather than later... I hope. *loves*
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW :: 51st Century Pheremones)
bullet points!

• For the first (and possibly only time) I can say that I am a week ahead in all of my law school readings. GO ME! *g*

• I finished my [livejournal.com profile] tw_bigbang. And by finish I mean hit 17k with two scenes left. One of which is smut, the other the last plot twist. I feel so accomplished!

• I love my parents. I really do. Mother has surprised me with three new Ed Hardy shirts. (*SQUEE* I love you Marshalls) Father has surprised me with the complete 7 seasons of West Wing.

• I need someone to tell me that because it turns out John won't be making an appearance at ChicagoTARDIS (*MUTTERMUTTER*) that I shouldn't use that money on a trip to London over thanksgiving.

Let me show you why I want to gooooo )

And while we're at it... why is I Am What I Am already out over there but not here? *glares at amazon.co.uk* if you didn't totally screw me on the Torchwood novels, I'd be tempted to order said book from there.
thescarletwoman: (TV // TWW :: Group Shot)
Had a really shitty day yesterday in regards to getting my midterm back from Torts. No, I'm not going into it -- but suffice to say I don't know what I'd have done without [livejournal.com profile] rose_whispers and [livejournal.com profile] halfspell. ♥

But in happier news? In this weird alternate reality known as Law School... I have friends. And more than just... a few people I hang around with but always feel like I'm bothering them. honest to god friends. As in -- one of them bringing in a huge-ass cookie for me to cheer me up from said bad day yesterday.

Besides, every law student goes through the "why the fuck am I doing this, let me outta here" at least once, right? So... my day happened to be yesterday.


In other news! I have hereby gotten my roommate hooked on the following shows:
1. Project Runway [no favourites yet, btw.]
2. Top Chef [jury's still out here too. But I do love the brothers.]
3. The West Wing

... my job here is done.


Lastly. House. I'm torn between OMGAMAZING and OMGWTF!?

ETA: Also, please tell me that I should be finishing my Torts work and not desperately trying to finish my [livejournal.com profile] tw_bigbang fic. It's at 13k at long last! And I know the ending... it's just... finishing it before the 28th.
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW :: End of the World)
In the future... make sure you have a chiropractor lined up BEFORE you decide to throw your back out.

*head.desk*

In other news, I got called on today in Torts. And managed to totally make an ass out of myself for 3 minutes before I broke down, whimpered that I had thrown my back out. To which Miller nicely let me out of the hot seat.

AKA, I better be really fucking prepared for tomorrow.

But for now... drugs.

And I swear -- I will get better about commenting soon. It's just been (as I'm sure you can guess) hectic as hell around here. But I'm loving every minute of school. I really am.

I think I must be a masochist.

♥ I love you guys. I really do.

Okay, it's official. I love law school. I will, however, probably be rescinding this love in about a week, but for the present? I LOVE IT.

I am, officially, the outspoken asshole in the class. However, I'm (nine times out of ten) right in whatever I've been saying and now have people moving to sit near me because I intimidate them and think I already have my study group for the first year. I'm fucking STOKED. For the first time in my life, I'm not afraid to feel smart which is... something so totally different from the rest of my life. I'm just... I'm happy. I love it here and I finally feel like I'm in my element. I can't explain it any different than that.

But I love it here. I absolutely do.

And to share, I'm going to start the 'Overheard in Law School' [OiLS]. Today's priceless gem is brought to you by 'who needs to read in Law school?'

Guy: "So, how accurate is the Practice? Because I wanted to get an idea of what it'll be like."
Professor: *gives a couple of decent films that accurately depict Crim Law*
Guy: "well, I wanted to know because I wanted to pick up a copy of 'Raising the Bar' this weekend if it was going to help me."

AND A BONUS OiLS [brought to you by 'my professor is a pothead']
Student: So after being a public defender in Brooklyn, could you ever become a judge?
Professor: No, I couldn't.
Student: Why not?
Professor: Because I don't agree with too many of the current statutes. Particularly on drug use and possession. I believe there are some that would be beneficial if decriminalised.


This weekend? There will be writing. Of a Torchwood nature. I promise. ♥
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW-DW :: ComicCon *iz ded*)
Oi! Sorry for the radio silence here! ♥

I am, though, here in White Plains and safe and sound. Loving my new apartment and getting used to living with someone. That... is an adventure, but at least the roommie is a geek like me, so it helps. A lot. :^D

Hey, we have a remote control Dalek on our mantle. What more could I ask for?

Oh, I know! White Plains, stop being so fucking hot and humid so I can actually go exploring!


Also! I'm an aunt twice over! :^D a little belated posting these but I was waiting for pictures... and haven't gotten them. Or, rather, I have but they're on my old phone and mom has yet to email them to me. *sigh*

♥ Kayo Charlie --> born 15 July
♥ James Douglas III --> born 31 July

So after the nieces, I have nephews! *squee*


And Law School. Orientation starts on monday and I just finished going through some of my syllabuses. Let's just say that my Torts professor has managed to scare the ever living shit out of me -- and I didn't think that was at all possible after Oltman. Final grade is based solely on one 4 hour closed-book exam. Come unprepared to class 3 times and he won't allow you to sit for the exam. Not that I'm PLANNING on being unprepared? But still. Fuck me.


♥ How have you guys been my lovelies? Tell me something good that's happened in your life, no matter how tiny or insignificant.
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW :: Jack Good Looking)
The best thing to come out of Torchwood lately? AfterElton's Facebook Recaps. If you haven't seen these yet, check them out. The recaps of the first two series are brilliant.

The link is for the CoE ones. Day Four is fucking PRICELESS.

The Brilliant Quote from Day 4 )

And I'm officially jealous of everyone at SDCC right now. That's all. ♥

I'm... back to the shop. If anyone out there is ever THINKING of doing the Wedding Singer for a show? Just... DON"T. The costumes are in-fucking-sane.

I almost think this is worse than Producers. Going back into the shop on a Saturday is not my idea of a good weekend.
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW|DW :: Ten Oogling Nekkidness)
Okay. So.

I'm officially on my way to London to wrap John in bubble wrap before he comes over here for Comic*Con.

Lucky Escape: John Barrowman survives 80mph rally car crash. At least he came through with minor injuries. But geeze. Between his ankle and now this? The guy is having one hell of a summer.


Also! As overheard in the shop. Richard was in today, so of course we have to discus Torchwood. *muttermutter* HOWEVER. funniest way I've heard Day One described yet:

Me: So, what did you think of Day One.
Richard: OMG. It was amazing. And that kiss at the end was SMOKIN' HOT.
Me: Just wait until day two.
Richard: Oh?
Me: [spoiler in case you're that nutsy about knowing nothing] Yes. Bare ass shot. Not to mention full-frontal that's slightly pixellated.
Richard: Oh I am SO buying this DVD.

And then mom almost spoiled him. *headdesk*

No, I didn't watch Day Two. But I watched the last half of Day One yesterday. And didn't throw things either! Aren't you all proud?
thescarletwoman: (TV // TW :: Kissing Book)
♥♥♥

Thank you guys SO much for all the birthday wishes on Saturday. Day was loverly and I got to spend time with my fabulously gay boyfriend at a gay bar in the evening. *g* Was absolutely fantastic. Hard to believe I'm running out of time here in Erie. Yeesh.


If anyone is interested, there is a statement from Gareth on his website. And it reads like the typical 'they asked me to say this diplomatically' which I can't blame him for. I DO feel wretched for James Moran who had been SO open to talking to fans which is wonderful for us. But to those of you (not saying any of them are on my flist) who did abuse the poor man for shame. Honestly, for shame.

It's taken me a good four days to finally feel as if I'm not reeling from this. TV shouldn't make you feel as this made me feel. And things damn near broke my Jack!Muse. I don't know who is really still unspoiled as to what happened but until it airs in the US I'll be good.

I'm, at last, working on fic. The sequel to the Trace Memory fic from Jack's POV has been put on the back-burner (it's half done) for the time being while I work on fixing CoE. Or, at least, finding a deserved ending.
thescarletwoman: (Theatre // Victor/Victoria :: Hell Hath)
FTR? [livejournal.com profile] avengangle? Your reception was SO much more fun.

Yes, Lisa is now married. Wedding was yesterday and it was lovely. How's that for the diplomatic answer? In truth, yesterday was miserable.
1. Florist didn't bring enough flowers. So, we had a runner take one of the bouquets after a bridesmaid walked and took it to the end of the line. Only, they were supposed to take it from the Junior Bridesmaid. Not... a bridesmaid. So guess who got to fucking stand through the service (at least it was just a quick outdoor thing spoken by the Justice of the Peace) holding NOTHING. Yes, that'd be me. Try to get my flowers back afterwards and the girl who got it, refused. Thankfully, I did get a bouquet. It's... not that I CARED, but I still wanted something from the day, even if Lisa has been a royal pain in the ass lately.
2. Everything was so haphazardly done, it was insane.
3. Didn't get what I ordered. The 'count' was wrong, so was stuck with Beef rather than Fish at the reception. Which, at that point, I was so annoyed it was like what else could go wrong?

The majority of the night was just... blargh. Food was nice and the alcohol flowed (which, for lisa wanting top shelf booze, tell me why there was no Jamesons there?) flowed. It was a nice evening all in all -- with the most fun part being, as SJ's family are all Italian -- they played some tarantellas and invited the Italians up. Dad and I were the only Erie-folk who went up and dancing a la The Godfather with them? A blast. Otherwise? I'm just glad it's over.

Sorry I haven't been around as much the past couple of weeks. I had a few health things (which, they've finally figured out part of what's wrong with me. Insulin Resistant FTL!) happenand then the wedding? So I've been a depressed little Lia. ♥ I love you guys muchly.

And have a couple little ficcy projects that I'm working on too. And, if there's interest, perhaps something a bit bigger. (and no, NOT a big bang before you even think about that!) ♥ Love you guys. You're the best. *smooch*
