Kink_Bingo

So, I signed up for a kink_bingo card. My squares look pretty good this year, and I think I can manage a bingo :) I plan to spend my summer writing this, finally getting my novel started, and organising the 600+ books currently cluttering up my bedroom >.<

I'm not sure why this struck a chord with me, but I love it. Perhaps because I own a pair of black woolly gloves.

AFTER THE LUNCH

On Waterloo Bridge where we said our goodbyes,
the weather conditions bring tears to my eyes.
I wipe them away with a black woolly glove
And try not to notice I've fallen in love

On Waterloo Bridge I am trying to think:
This is nothing. you're high on the charm and the drink.
But the juke-box inside me is playing a song
That says something different. And when was it wrong?

On Waterloo Bridge with the wind in my hair
I am tempted to skip. You're a fool. I don't care.
the head does its best but the heart is the boss-
I admit it before I am halfway across

I perhaps should have gone to bed several hours ago. I'm getting Brian Kinney and Malcom Reynolds mixed up in my head, and wow is that not good. It would lead to lots of cracked-out fics, which I don't write. No siree, not me.

Apparently I decided to start my DW learning experience by joining some photography communities. Go figure. Perhaps I should look for one of those 'post a photo a day' challenges, or something.

In the spirit of my new-found interest, have a random picture. I have no idea where the other earring is. Hopefully somewhere in my jewelery box, but who knows.

A fresh start.

I'd forgotten about this journal. I created it on a whim, and as I haven't yet got around to learning dreamwidth's ins-and-outs it has simply been lying empty for some considerable time. But I think it's time that I started to use it more (I'm ignoring the fact that I have exams in a month or so), and therefore using DW more; I signed up for a reason, and that was to be involved in something from the beginning. Livejournal is a wonderful place, and I've made a lot of friends there, but the anonymity of this journal is starting to appeal to me.

Maybe I'll get round to writing some of the small fandom fics I've been thinking about for years. Maybe I'll get round to joining some of the crafting communities I read. Perhaps I'll even start putting together some serious rec lists, like I see other authors doing.

We'll see.

Introduction post, sort of.

The first entry is always the hardest, I think, because I never know how to begin anything. Plus, it's unlikely that anyone will read this, so I could just go :D and leave it at that for now. But, on the offchance that anyone will scroll back and look at this, I'll put some basic stuff in here. 

*thinks* I'm a writer, and I'll play in any fandom so long as it catches my interest. One tv episode can be enough to get me shipping a pairing; case in point, Criminal Minds last night. I caught the last half-hour, and now Morgan/Reid is firmly established in my head. I can't draw (epically so), and I view fanvids as being the most complicated thing ever after mathematics (which I also suck at), so you won't see anything of that sort from me. I'm quite willing to be given prompts and requests, but my relationship with deadlines is a little hit-and-miss. I will try, but sometimes I'll fail to get things done in time. 

Outside of fandom, I'm not that complicated a person. I like being inside when it's raining, outside when there's a thunderstorm, and I'd rather be too cold than too hot. I love books, as well as words in general, and I think I'm going to grow up to be the skinny female version of Stephen Fry. My handwriting is becoming alarmingly like my father's, I talk far too fast on an everyday basis, and my music tastes are so wide-ranging that I need to find a better word than 'eclectic' to describe my iTunes playlist. 

I think I'll leave it at that for now.
