gah...

well, that was a barrel of laughs...

see, here's the thing. i have (or rather, had) a CD, upon which i was saving AIM conversations with katie along with a little linking thing to introduce them. they were all on a recordable CD, which roxio, for some reason, had managed to do the impossible with. you're not meant to be able to format recordable CDs; when you do, it makes them re-writable until you close them, which is a very good thing, but, as i said, technically impossible... anyway, having uninstalled roxio after the last CD saga, obviously, i couldn't access said CD-R to edit anything.

so, i had a cunning plan. i would install roxio, thus making the CD usable so i could save the files to my hard drive, delete the CD, uninstall roxio, and start over with nero. ha. ha ha ha.

nero and roxio don't get along. to such an extent that when i restarted, windows refused to load.

cue reinstalling of windows, and, of course, the twenty billion things i have on my computer (including that shitload of fonts i downloaded a month or so ago. oy...) i'm so glad i save everything to disc by habit...

anyway, at least my computer works again, as well as it ever does... and, even though it's now too late on livejournal...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ENI!

aaaand again.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEET!!



sorry the present sucks, if it's even managed to get there... my Muse has been annoyingly absent and sporadic of late, so i can't even present you with random fic...  but anyway, jubilations to thee.

today i should... probably type up my america noir notes, seeing as the lecture's cancelled. or... start my dissertation. or something.  but you know i'm not going to...

cookery experiments...

so, i finally used the pork steaks i'd bought a while back (yes, i did freeze them :P) that i'd intended to feed to last_dance because i had a random pork craving.  but, being me, i decided to experiment. because it's always the best idea when you're a terrible cook, right?

anyway.  i grilled them, and grated some cheese, to which i added some of my greek herbs and some italian herbs, for interest, and saved the rest of the herbs for the mashed potatoes.  the cheese-herbs mixture was then melted in the oven (on top of the steaks, obviously) and... amazingly, it worked, and tasted nice, too.

and i'm not dead yet, so it can't have been poisonous.

i need to stop starting entries with 'so...'

photoshop + buffyworld = madness...

in reference to this comment conversation, beneath the cut lies the first bit of thefleshfailure's birthday present, because it's easier than printing it off...

of course, i would have done it sooner, had i not needed to go away to redownload interesting fonts first...

and then, this is stolen off herringprincess...

First Online Fandom: X-Files, probably. That was the first I went on message boards for...
Current Online Fandom: Buffy/Farscape/Pirates of the Caribbean, mainly. The other fandoms are less online-y.
First Fandom Crush: Meep. Er. Mulder. I know, I know...
Current Fandom Crush: Spike, obviously (Season 4 eyeliner-Spike takes precedence over most...) Niles Crane. Jack Sparrow (yes, I am a sheep.) Joe Gillis, but that comes and goes, and you all know the reason *mutters*. And... oh, go on then. Doyle. I'm sure there's more than that. Oh, wait. Julian Bashir. :)
First Fanfic Pairing You Wrote: Mulder/Scully.
Latest Fanfic Pairing You Wrote: Buffy/Spike, probably...

end of another era...

since another.com have upped their yearly pricing to £24.00 instead of £15.00 (or thereabouts) i've decided it's time to let it lie.  i shall miss my multiple addresses, most definitely, but i can't afford them any more, and it's getting spammed something chronic.  therefore, i'm forwarding all important stuff to my new account - for fanfic.net only - which is teylaminh@cliffhanger.com (seemed appropriate.)

update your address books, if you must, though i'll be unlikely to actually send anything from it...
