Random - Oblivion wheels

Bloody internet.

Well, some internet is better than no internet, but the connection seems awfully temperamental.  Yesterday morning it worked fine, but then in the afternoon we had to reboot the router before it would acknowledge the internet connection.  This morning it works (after a ten minute wait)  but is deathly slow.  Like, dial-up slow.  Semagic loads just fine, but it hasn't managed to load Livejournal properly and isn't acknowledging Yahoo in the slightest...  *kicks internet*

I do believe my slow PC is partially to blame for this, but it's still bloody annoying...  Hopefully if I ever upgrade it might be better, but until then we'll just have to deal with it... meh.

Anyway, yesterday was quite nice.  Firstly we did our usual trick of going out shopping for five items and spending over £40 on general shopping.  Which is probably why I never have any money left.

Got back, had some lunch, and attempted to use the internet, only to fail and instead finish Myst.  Then I sulked for a bit and watched the pilot of Nip/Tuck on the Virgin Choice channel (I think that's what it's called), which has archived the first couple of episodes of various serieses on there.  As much as I prefer Sky to cable, the Teleport Replay and Teleport Movies are a nice bonus...

Then in the evening we headed off to the abode of herringprincess and wrysprygoat for dinner.  Drew cooked us a very nice veggie lasagne, and in the evening we played Scrabble and made things out of play-doh.  There's something quite therapeutic about play-doh, and the smell reminds me of childhood.

Which was quite strange, actually, since that morning I'd bought some tinned turkey breast from Sainsbury's to use for sandwiches, which was another vestige of my childhood was nostalgia in smell and taste form.

Anyway, assuming this thing posts, I might get to check my friends list at some point this bloody afternoon.

Since herringprincess requested them, here are some firework / bonfire icons.  They're not very good, but you can attribute that to my being out of practice with Photoshop.  And also creativity in general...


They're up for taking, if anyone wants them...

The rules:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I respond by asking you five questions so I can "get to know you better."
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.

So, here are the questions from herringprincess...

1) If you could play any Buffy character in a stage production (assuming that you wouldn't be nervous about standing up in front of loads of people), who would it be?
Hm... my first choice would be Tara, but that depends on it being a production of "Once More With Feeling", and also depends on who would be playing Spike, because that would determine whether or not I should play Buffy...  but, um... probably Anya, actually.  If we're talking in general terms, anyway.
2) What is the biggest thing you and Paul disagree about?
I have no idea.  Um... his level of drunkenness, I think.
3) What music do you listen to when you are upset?
Well, when I was really upset, it was mostly nothing, because picking a CD was too difficult.  But I'd have to say a musical, or just a selection of showtunes.  They're full of passion and hence great to sing along to.  (Also, at one point, my Celine Dion album...)
4) What toy would you absolutely not let Paul get rid of even if your relationship was in jeopardy?
Gah.  My blanket bunny.  I wouldn't let my mum throw it away so I'm damned if I'm going to let Paul. :)  (Although at the moment it is AWOL.)
5) Would you rather be blind or deaf, if you had to choose?
I'm already mostly blind anyway... I think probably blind, though, because then I could still appreciate music, and I could still read via braille and be able to mentally visualise things better from not having any external sources to distract me...

People can ask for interviews if they want, but I will most likely be rubbish at coming up with questions...
