Well, I'm currently at loriel_eris
's, enjoying the freedom of no more exams.
Went out on Friday night, but had to leave reasonably early to catch the train home to loriel_eris
's and also because she was extremely tired. Then, the next day, we went on a 4 mile bike ride, me using my bike for the first time in about six years. It was surprisingly easy - obviously living on the top floor for the last two years has done my legs some good after all!
Then, later that night, we went out in Glasgow again, this time to an Astronomy Department that we had arranged. 16 out of 17 people turned up, and the 17th was going to, but had to stay in bed due to some overindulgence the night before! It was really good, but again, we had to leave the pub quite early afterwards. Our next big social event is the graduation ball in a couple of weeks time. It feels really weird to not be seeing everyone every day now.
Had a weird dream about Russell last night, and an even weirder one about Ross a few nights ago. Am not going to even try to explain them, since they're too weird for words, and I can't really remember them - other than Ross proposed to me, and I finally kissed Russell, and then we got embroiled in some conspiracy to kill this old lady. Oh, and in the Russell dream, my mother was Jen Garner and single! Don't ask me, it's my subconcious at work!
So, moving on, loriel_eris
and I got up a little later this morning, and, after a quick breakfast, took the two dogs out for another run, this time six miles. Other than remarkably sore backsides, we were okay! Somehow we survived, although Barney, the collie, is stiff as old boots now, the poor guy!
I was going to mention something else exciting, but I can't remember!
Oh, have just found out that a wonderful Draco/Ginny fic, Dark Directed
has been updated and is now finished. Hurrah!
Ooh, I know what's been an exciting development. loriel_eris
has a record player deck which she has been using to record Harry Potter on tape onto her computer and then onto CD. Now, I've got several records that I haven't heard in years, since my parents got rid of their record player. So, we've just discovered that we can easily record from LP to CD. It's fabulous! Some of these LPs you can't buy anymore! I'm so chuffed! I've been waiting to do this for ages!
I don't think I have anything else to say, except hooray to notasalmon
, and loriel_eris
for finishing exams in one piece, congratulations to frippysnarf
for going to Australia (lucky thing!), and don't worry, lollygagjill
, I'm sure things will get better.
Anyway, I'd better go back to recording things, otherwise we'll never get anywhere.
Also, I think we may be about to watch lots of Farscape
Season 4! Woohoo! I've only seen the first three episodes, but loriel_eris
has got them on DVD, so we can watch them all! Hurrah!ETA: Go and check out Tom Felton's site. For starters, he's updating reasonably regularly, and also there's a lovely photo of him in New York that makes me want to drool. Also, finally, a celeb who actually likes brown hair and brown eyes on his girls! I may have a chance! *g*
