HMS Awesome

This week, my soundtrack would have been flight of the bumblebee. It has been crazy busy. This has been good from a distraction-y point of view but less from a quality of life-y angle. Oh well. Case in point: my eye. There were some bright points though! My friend who studied musical theatre in London was …

The things we turn to…

Knock Knock? Who’s there? Eight Eight who? Don’t you eight it when your bus doesn’t come, you get rained on and everything gets a lot more real. In fact, you love and hate it.

A weekend in the ‘sun’

So I went on holiday this weekend. Shanghai? Sri Lanka? Sharm El Sheikh? Actually Sheffield. Oh yeah, be jealous. It was lovely actually.

Ranting…but this is love

Viva Forever

First there was this: Then this: Then this: Then some of this and this: I’ve been playing a game I got for Christmas called Crisis Core.
