argh too much stuff  
It's official I have too much stuff to do - or rather I have a lot of stuff that I want to do/finish but my brain wont get into gear and do it.
I need to make icons for tw-icons100, at least 10 of them by next friday - so far I only have three that i'm actually happy with. 
Fic wise I have a dozen half finished fics that just wont coopperate. I really want to get at least one of them finished this month. I just can't seem to find a POV that works on one of them and on another one, one  that I said I'd have finished by the end of next month I haven't even worked out how I want it to end yet.
None of my fic even have titles - i suck at titles, I have no ability at titles - I am nearly as bad Leonard of Quirm for naming things - although I realise my names are bad and don't call things by them. 

Hopefully I will have more time to work on stuff next month, this is mainly due to work finally hiring some more staff - maybe i'll actually be able to work my actual contacted 37 hours a week rather than the 45+ that i've been doing for the last six months.

Going to sleep now - will try to make more sense tomorrow.  like I ever make sense :)

I must be mad. I've not long finished one 100 icons challenge and now i've signed up for another one. I obviously want to be surgically attached to my lap top forever, I can think of no other explanation. It's another 100 icons for tw_icons100 and this the hundred icons will all be from episode eight of Torchwood, They Keep Killing Suzie.

On other fandom related stuff next friday can't come soon enough, I want to know what happens in Criminal minds. I suppose at least it's only a week - not like CSI when I'll have to wait until the next series to find out what actually happened. 
Cliffhangers can be good - but not so much when it involves the possibility of somebody no longer being in the shpw, a character that I really don't want to go. I wont say any more than that just in case anyone reading hasn't seen it yet.

My download of the first series of Criminal Minds has died on me again and seems to killed off my Bittorrent as well as it crashes every time I try to start the program. Looks like i'll have to reinstall it, which is a pain i'll probably lose the half finished stuff on there. But since it's not working at all at the moment I don't think i've got too much choice.

Off now to attempt to make Hollandaise sauce, Fin asked me to make some and me like an idiot said yes, how hard can it be? well i'm about to find out.  As long as I get it finished before Doctor Who comes on I don't mind .

quick update  
Ok I have now finished my 100 Owen icons, and like a mad person or at least one who wishes never to have any free time ever again i've signed up to do 100 more icons - this time of the Torchwood episode They Keep Killing Suzie.
I will be posting the first 5 icons for fanfic50 in the next couple of days.

On the fic front i've now sent lady in red (dress prompt) and Slow dances in time (dance prompt)to be beta'd and hopefully these should be posted by the end of the week.

Being as I have a long weekend all to myself I will hopefully get round to writing more of Picking up the Pieces (the like china extended drabble - extended being an understatement as it's gone from 100 word drabble to 3000+ word monster)

Will keep people posted.

Icon and fic update  
Ok I should be finishing my tw_icon100 challenge today as i've only got three icons, all artists choice, left to do.
After that I will be working on the 25 general Torchwood icon and the 50 Jack/Ianto icons for fanfic 50 
One of the general TW icons for fanfic50 is finished, but I wont to post in batches of at least five so I wont be posting those for a while.  While these don't have a time limit on them I want to have them done in the next three months or so.

On the fic front 
I have two short fics that are ready to go to be beta's, these are for the dance and dress prompts for fanfic50
I have made a start on the first part of the Owen gen H/C fic, which covers the prompts bones, fade and road.
This will be a long fic and probably wont be ready for a while.
The extended version of the Like China drabble is still eating my brain, it at least now has a name, it will be called Picking Up The Pieces. 
It should by rights, be finished by now, but i just can't seem to get the scene where Ianto gets the mug knocked out of his hand correct, and it's driving me slowly mad that it just wont go right.
I do however have bits of the next two parts of it planned out and a couple of small scene in those written.

In the name of organisation I have sorted my fic's into complete, nearly complete, half finished and fragments.
I currently have six fics in the nearly complete category, and about eight more in the half finished one.
I will have something posted fic wise this week, and that's a definate.

Going to Cardiff, icon challenge and thoughts about TW characters.  
Quick update, Work has ok'd me taking the 17th of August off so I will now be able to get to the Cardiff meet up a reasonable time, or as reasonable time as a 5 hour car or 7 hour train journey will allow.
I know it's over three months away but I'm already looking forward to it.

On fan related things, i've now got just over a month to finish my icons for the [profile] tw_icons100challenge and I am starting to struggle for idea's now, and i've still got thirty icons to go.  
I chose Owen because it would be a challenge, because I didn't neccessarily like his character as much as some of the others. But now, and I don't know if it's due to spending far too much time screen capping him for these icons, but he has become, if not likeable, then at least more understandable and to be honest a have more of a problem with Gwen.
At least Owen makes no excuses for who he is or, for the most part, how he acts.

Ok that post was far longer than I thought it would be, right I'll stop now before I think of anything else to ramble on about.

internet connection  
My home internet connection is temporarily not working, this is due to Tiscali/Belkin/BT, i'm not sure which, arn't talking to one another anymore.
Have bought a usb flash drive so I can do my first Icon post tommorrow for [profile] tw_icons100if the local library will let me connect it to one of  their computers, if not, there's always the internet cafes, but that actually costs money.
It is an excuse however to go check out the new coffee shop-internet cafe that opened up a couple of months ago, and if you spend more than £2 you can go one line for half an hour for 'free'
Am doing the sneaky posting from work thing at the moment, well not so sneaky as everybody else has gone home, i'm jsut enjoying the internet perks of doing overtime on a friday evening, oh well only another hour or so to go.

I went and entered an icon challenge  

Have put my name down for the 100 icon challenge over at

[profile] tw_icons100 for icons of Owen from any of the currently shown episodes, waiting to hear back. Since nobody else has a yet chosen to do Owen icons I am hopeful of getting it.

In the mean time I am frantically making as many screen caps of Owen as I can to act as bases for the challenge icons.
Finding out that VLC media player has its own shiny shiny screen capping function a few weeks back was very useful indeed, all I need to do now is get picasa and photostudio functioning properly and I'll be all set.

Some of you out there might know me as[profile] liveforever5000  this new journal is going to be home to my icons and fan fiction in an attempt to keep my RL and fan fic + icon post seperate.
I'll be transfering the fan stuff and icons from my other site over the next few days. 
This journal may change colour and shape quite a lot in the next couple of weeks as I try to find out how to customise it.
