Why now?

There's been nothing interesting on at the Hippodrome for bloody months, and now, suddenly, there's all these things I'm interested in seeing...

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang tour
Anything Goes tour
My Fair Lady tour
Stomp tour
A Matthew Bourne version of Edward Scissorhands (!)
The Christmas BRB Ballet of Beauty and the Beast
Jerry Springer: the Opera tour

And I think there's probably going to be a few more.

Meh.  This is Fate stealing my money after getting me a contract, obviously...

Well, I might as well make use of it.

Since LJ gave me the 100-icon capacity, and since I wanted to turn the rainbow into an icon, I've added a few more random photo-based icons to the list.

... ... ...

Sunsets make good icons, I think...

The sky has now gone an amazing shade of grey-tinted pink... unfortunately, there are too many trees at the back of the house to try and get a decent picture of the sun going down.

OMG.  Writing.

Chapter 12 of Sweet Intoxication, after another year-long hiatus.  It's not good, but dammit, it's something.

Things that are annoying about

1) The new layout is horrendously confusing.  I mean, really.  It's better, certainly (there's finally a 'delete chapter' function, which has been long overdue), but confusing.
2) The summary section, not content with already stripping the "/" symbol and making pairing notation impossible, now strips the frelling hyphens as well, which just made my update-note look like it was written by someone with no knowledge of grammar.  Which is irritating.

I'm sure there are more, but I covered them in stop_the_badfic many moons ago.

It annoys me in general that they have to resort to such methods to stop crappy writers from writing imcomprehensible summaries.  They try to make the site more accessible, but they move further and further from their motto ("Unleash your imagination and free your soul!") whenever they do.
