Ouch!

Word to the wise - when pinning fabric, don't use your knee as a support, or you will end up with a sore spotty rash thing. Also, when measuring, make sure you're using the centimeters side of the tape, not the inches.

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Hooray!

Assessments are over, finally. They were actually pretty alright, for assessments - I got to write an essay on the difference between fantasy and fairy tales, and I also then (unrelated) wrote a fairytale. I am celebrating by getting a full night's sleep. :D

So I promised myself I'd start posting stuff other than whining...

And I will. But right now, I just have to say ooowie owwie owie ow, because my face is swollen and my teeth hurt, and I'm hungry and I'm tired and I have cramps and I swear to god, my back feels like it's been hit up and down with a CRICKET BAT. Dear GOD, my back hurts so much I'm actually crying like a baby, and I can't lie down because that makes it worse, and there is no one around to cuddle me because the family has gone out.



Yes, this IS all related to the big tooth op. Is anyone interested in hearing about that? (I promise it will be not-whiney.)

um, oops?

Hey, so guess what I found out this morning? My appointment to go and have surgery to get my wisdom teeth out that I thought was next Friday, or possibly the one after? Is this Friday. Which means I am in a mad rush to try and get everything more-or-less done for uni before then, so I don't have to try to finish assessable work in a haze of pain. Fun week, ahoy!

Dear Family,
What precisely is lacking in your collective mind that you do not realise that when someone, such as myself, puts a bottle of water in the fridge, that generally means they will, at some time in the near future, want a bottle of (chilled) water, and that it is therefore polite that you, should you wish to partake of said chilled water, should then refill the bottle and place it back in the fridge? I Don't Mind This. What I mind, is when someone decides that they wish to partake of my chilled water and thereafter does not refill and replace the bottle, but rather, throws it in the bin so that when I want a bottle of water - for say, my handbag, or a bout with the treadmill, there is none to be found.
Sorely tried love,
Sarah

It's nice to see you too, dad

Fucking hell. Dad gets back from a locum and within three minutes of walking in the door is yelling and criticising in every direction. He didn't even say hello before he got started - which wouldn't be so bad, except I went out of my way to be civil to him when he turned up.

Signs you need to clean, or at least dust your room:
1) Mysteriously blocked nose when in room.
2) Explosive sneezing upon leaving room.

Lookie lookie what I did

I'm on a fandom roll. Remember how I posted a while back about fake gypsy tatoos for the TS launch? I'm playing round with ideas for that at the moment, and knocked up a quick version watching tv tonight:



It was done in like, ten minutes, so the quality is not fabulous, but it's sorta what I'm going for. I think it needs a lot more negative space between the birds, though. And it was done in acrylic, which, as I should have remembered, itches. I think if this sort of thing were to be done for multiple people, I'd have to go for fake tats, or have multiple people working on it, since it'd take far too much time otherwise. The word in the middle, for the record, is "sentire" (to know) - it's backwards because the only way I could take it was in a mirror. I really need a proper camera.
