Mostly a good day

I have successfully reduced my number of open tabs to 11, but I have not yet trawled my reading list for the last 3 days *sigh*.

I saw Eddie Izzard last night at the Newcastle arena and he rocked!!! The tickets were unexpected, so thanks to whichever mates of Paz' manager decided to bail. Our gain! Highlights of the evening were the jazz chicken and gazelles on elastic. I've noticed Eddie's getting rather more political these days. Significant time devoted to creationism and 'intelligent design', and several mentions of the BNP. It made for an interesting, intelligent show. It was also as funny as hell!

I currently have men drilling holes in my brickwork and stuffing the house cavities with yellow fluff. Soon we shall be fully insulated! Unfortunately, I can't go into town and meet my mate from London off the train until they're done. I'm also only half way through my to-do list for the day.

Still to do:

  • Tidy bedroom
  • Tidy desk (hah!)
  • Food shopping for weekend guests - umm...
  • Check train prices to Sheffield and London.
That last one is important. I have to go to Sheffield and I want to go to London, both before xmas. I probably can't afford to do both but, either way, I should book sooner rather than later.

OK, workmen finally done! I'm off to town to meet Andy, who I haven't seen since easter.

Supernatural question

I know very little about the SPN fandom—other than hearing about that episode in season 4—due to being only half way through season 1. Anyway, a mate of mine saw that episode and went hunting for fic on the web. She found fanfiction.net - imagine her disappointment. She asked me for assistance.

So, please could you direct me towards any good archives, comms or rec lists for SPN fic? My friend is new to slash, despite conversations with me, and not too keen on the concept of Wincest. If there's good starting fics you can think of, please let me know.

Shiny Happy People

The truly awesome [info]lilithilien bought me paid time on Dreamwidth! *hugs her mightily* I now have to organise all my icons on IJ so that I can then port them to DW. And there will also be polls... But not today, I think.

Today, I am going to wear a sundress for the first time in two years (\o/ we actually have sunshine) and I'm going to make brownies. After lunch I shall go into town to meet Claire, who is up from London for a funeral :( but I'm still glad I get to see her. Then Paz and I have to empty our wardrobes onto plastic sheeting, dismantle the bed and set the mattress on another sheet. The new carpet is being fitted tomorrow! Am very excited *bounces* And tonight there will be Neverwinter Nights, and "Sneak Attack, bitch!" Or maybe some Smite Evil, depending on which server we play on.
