Things I have learned today  
First: champagne, vodka, port, gin, tequila and cream don't mix.

Obvious, right? But, nay, when they come in the form of delicious Sosho cocktails...no. No, not at all. Following a delicious and alcoholic meal with a friend, I have - somehow - got myself home without cannoning off the many walls of London and am currently stealth-typing so as not to wake the Hack.

Seriously, you have no idea how long it took me to type that paragraph without it looking like dghslfhkfhkfhsk.

Second: Christmas is not unlike a ninja. It creeps up on you. How did it get to 8 days to Christmas, and I have yet to buy half my presents and wrap all of them? Chaos!

Third: yikes. Scary stuff.

Fourth: what is this 'my stats' feature that hath appeared on my LJ? I'm confuzzled. Though of course, that might be the alcohol.

Fifth: in monumental lack of awesome, I have to take my car into a dealer to be repaired, or so sayeth the letter that rocked up on my parents' doorstep today. Or it might explode in a FIREBALL, I kid you not. Yes, the pinkmobile requires urgent repairs. Unfortunately, I have no more days off until after Christmas, so I shall spent the next two weeks or so in a frenzy of panic as I drive to work and back, wondering if fiery death is around the corner. Let's hope not, eh?

Much love,

If your LJ is a paid account, the Stats thingy is new. Below is the unpretty link to an explanation/walk-through.


And also, I agree so hard re: Christmas ninjahood! I'm not ready for this at all.

I sincerely hope that fiery death avoids stalking you so no go explodely.

Oooh. I'm not paid, but still get stats. Is that right?

I still have presents to buy. Now I'm edging from panic to full-blown hysteria...

No 'splodey yet. But it IS snowing, so it would more fizzle.

I, er, may not get my yuletide story to you with any decent pocket of time for you to look at! And, uh, since I am doing the retail hell with you, that's okay. If all else fails, I may do a panicked "hey, can anyone look at this for me in a few hours?" post on LJ.

EDIT Also, yes, do not die! We like you too much!

I shall try to live! So far, still rare.

No probs, ping it over when you can :) I check my email daily, so I'll pick it up! 24th is when I leave to head home.

I'm hoping to have it over to you by about 8pm tonight? The deadline is 2am Tuesday morning, our time, but I'm going to try and get it uploaded tonight as I've been hearing horror stories that's it's taking hours to get them uploaded and I have nightmares of coming home from work tomorrow to find our internet is down or something (that happened to me before when I was submitting to another fest).

It's going to be short--2,000-3,000 words--so literally just a quick read for spelling and consistency would be awesome. I completely understand if that's not possible for you tonight, so don't worry if you can't manage it.

Actually, I'll just upload it tonight, so I'll have something there--and then edit it (we can edit the stories ourselves this year \o/) whenever you get back to me. Yeah, that's a much better idea. :)

OMG! Truly it is the Circle of Wank that moves us all.
