Nothing I want to do, nothing I want to read, nothing I want to write. Internet being annoyingly slow, not that there's much I want to read/do online anyway. Terror is in bed, Daddy has T to talk to about EVE 'n' stuff. It's only five past eight and I might as well go to bed.

[Repost from Facebook]

Stolen from a friend's lj.

Years roleplaying: 5 1/2
Least favourite character?: Karen was a bit dull, but she was my first. Of current characters probably Rhiann for the same reason. :(
Male or female characters?: Half and half so far.
Oldest character played: Bob. We've been playing that game for over four years now...
Newest character?: Tai Jin Qi in Paul's WotG game. He's a cook.

Which character of yours would be most likely to...
Jump off a bridge?: Bob, for any number of reasons.
Get drunk and pass out?: Bob does this regularly.
Kill somebody in a very unorthodox way?: Tai might spatula someone to death I guess, but he prefers not to kill.
Be far too hyper for their own good?: Not sure. Maybe Tai.
Get lost and refuse to ask for directions?: Bob. Paranoid bastard.
Get lung cancer?: Um, Tai? From cooking smoke, if he doesn't actually smoke himself which I'm not sure.
Star in a horror movie? Bob /is/ in a horror movie isn't he?
Star in a whore movie?: ....Tai?
Star in a video game?: Tai!
Make the world a better place?: That's what Rhiann's trying to do. Tai might do a better job though.
Have a torrid gay love affair?: Er...Bob. The last woman he slept with turned out to be a cyborg which traumatised him slightly.

Relate each word to a character of yours:
Love: Rhiann (her son if nothing else)
Hate: Bob (far too much)
Money: Tai actually has Wealth.
Seduction: None really. Although Rhiann would love it. ;)
Lies: Tai - although he's rather twist words than outright lie.
Tragedy: Oh...Bob.
Manipulation: Tai - that's what he does!
Violence: Bob
Politics: Tai
Fire: Bob (metaphorically) and Tai (literal)
Ice: Ditto. :)

Would you ever...
Play a prostitute?: Yup.
Play a musician?: Yes.
Play a pilot?: Why not? Apart from Paul telling me I'm doing it wrong. :D
Play a politician?: Not really my thing.
Create a character for the sole purpose of smut?: Sure.

Things that are bugging me

  • I cannot find my passport. This may be because the house is so untidy I can't find anything or it may be because I've lost it.
  • My laptop worked a couple of times over the last few days, but has gone back to switching off after a minute or so last night and this morning. This sucks.
  • I haven't written anything on my thesis for nearly two weeks.
  • I haven't cleaned the kitchen or bathroom floor for....far too long.
  • No babysitter = mo drinks at the department tonight. Unless I go and leave Daddy with the Terror. I think I'd rather it the other way round.
  • Forgot to go to bank to cancel/alter standing orders. Need to do that at some point, and probably ought to cancel a couple of magazine subscriptions. And tell the council Daddy is a full-time student again. Or I'm going to run out of money fast.
  • Haven't spoken to R in some time, and I keep promising her (and my parents) we'll visit sometime soon but have no idea when that might be.
  • Stupid crush. Different stupid crush, but even stupider. Hope I get over this one quickly too.
  • Never seem to have time/energy to go for run any more.
  • Never seem to have time/energy for anything any more...

Happiest Days

This school lark is taking some getting used to. Yes, the Terror has finally started at Lord Deramore's which necessitates all of us getting up earlier and getting ready quickly. While this means he's more tired in the evenings and goes to bed early, it also means we're more tired and go to bed earlier. This may have an adverse effect on our gaming - we'll have to wait and see. Tea is also being a problem as he wants to eat shortly after getting in, whereas Daddy doesn't get home until nearly six o'clock. As he's having school dinners, I can get away with doing a snack type tea for him at least. The two of us may move to having our main meal at lunchtime too.

In other news, work still sucks, but the first issue of Deadpool didn't! I miss Fabian Nicieza's writing though. I really do. Not quite enough to buy Trinity though...
