That was close  

Only just managed to get by writerinadrawer entry in this week, 20 minutes before the deadline - my internet connection decided that it was time to annoy me again.

My connection is now running both through my wireless card and from where I managed to plug it via the USB, via an ethernet connection straight into the wireless router box and that has just about given my enough connection to get my entry in. 

Not that I'm happy with what I've written, I'm not, but then again I never am. I had two ideas for what I was going to write this week, and then travelling to work on the bus this morning a third idea sneaks up and suddenly I have the other two ideas and have to write the third one.

So consquently my entry this week was written in about two and a half hours, I've barely had time to read over it, i'm sure it's awful and even the internet didn't seem to want me to inflict it on people - at least i've managed to persuade the internet that, at least for the next few minutes that it wants to co-opperate with me.  

So even if I do go out this round I've had a great time writting (and stressing out over) my entries, and it's been fun especially because I never expected to get this far. 

I will now get my rather over due tea :)

Back online and lots of ranting.  

Stupid laptop HDD has fallen over, I've managed to reinstall the old spare one, but dependant on whether the main one will work in an exteral enclosure I may have lost everything i've written since my last major back up two month ago - is really not happy about this. 
Consequently i've had to drop out of Tardis_bigbang because there is no way i'm going to be able to send in an anything like finnished fic by the end of the month, and i've had to drop out on the art side of it too as all my brushes, screen caps etc are on the knackered hard drive.

And I can't even afford any major repairs/replacements as the company that my other half works for is laying people off, him included.  So much for the hope of  having enough money to make more reenactment events this summer.

I really could do without all this shit, as there is a whole of of family stuff going on as well. So right now i'm just witing for the next thing to go wrong.

On the brightside I did manage to send of my round three entry for writer in a drawer by doing the sneaky post from work thing.  Although considering how things have been going for me lately i'll probably be voted out.

Didn't get nearly as much done as i'd hoped. Nothing got done on the car due to the weather. The costume went a bit better as it's all cut out and pinned ready for sewing, the Cleopatra hair part of the costume is not however going right - I spent an innordinate amount of time plaiting a wig, i'd got it for a Xena costume a couple of years ago, and it just doesn't look right,  well I've got until Saturday night to sort it out, plenty of time :)

My download finally finished on the Highlander: The Source  film and I watched it.  I won't give away any of the plot for it, i'll just say if you thought Highlander: Endgame was bad (I actually quite liked parts of it, if not the overall plot)  it might be an idea not to watch this one. Still it was nice to see Methos and Joe again, which was pretty much my only reason for watching it in the first place, and I suppose Duncan as well.

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 :)
