I need your help peoples!

It’s taken me a while to get around to posting these pictures, but I have been in the process of replacing my kitchen for the last 8 months or so. The new units, etc are in but I still need to decorate. It’s already so much better than what I had before, but I need to finish it now.

But I am having so much trouble choosing the décor! I have gone through ideas for a) aqua blue paint with blue glass titles, b). a mural of a nebula on the biggest wall with black/dark blue titles (a bit to expensive and you won’t see much of the picture anyway), and c) brick effect textured wallpaper with god knows what tiles. All I know is that white/off-white and yellow are my absolute no-nos. Blue is always preferable.Or a dark purple???? I want dramatic and a place for my clock.


Pics under the cut! )

So, any suggestions (within my budget budget)?

RIP Steve Strange.

Now some nonsense:

[ profile] curiouswombat gave me the letter G for the six things meme:

Something I hate: Green Tomatoes! Well, all tomatoes really. And most greens.

Something I love: Goldfrapp. I was just listening to them today and realising the song 'Twist' is even more dirty than I thought. Plus Alison Goldfrapp is an alum of my uni (a little ahead of me though)

Somewhere I've been: Germany was just a day trip, so I will say Glastonbury! Both the festival and the town. The Somerset levels are one of my favourite places, when they aren't underwater that is.

Somewhere I'd like to go: There's nowhere beginning with G I have a great hankering to see. The Great Barrier Reef? That has to be better than Glasgow.

Someone I know: [ profile] gillo is the only G I can think of currently.

A film I liked: G... G.. Gattica? Nah. Ghostbusters! Of course.

If you want a letter, just ask.

I have to confess I'm finding this whole birthday thing a bit meh these days.

Perhaps it's because nothing really happens on them anymore not because I am getting so old; I had presents last Sunday (a toaster! a clock! Ah adulthood) and I am going out to dinner tomorrow. And yes, I visited my friend tonight and she treated me to a takeaway, but that's our usual Saturday night transplanted to a Friday. I even went to the shop to buy a cake for afternoon off indulgence, but came out with some Bakewell Tarts and a packet of Wotsits.

Still, life could be a lot worse. Mustn'y grumble.

Happy New Year!

This will be even shorter than last year.




None (sort of – there were lots of banners and things for [ profile] sb_fag_ends, but nothing proper).

My creative 2014 was really in learning lots of new card making techniques and a little bit of jewellery-making, rather than words; even if I did write a little original stuff for myself to keep my hand in.

I really must finish that epic WIP… And post more than just [ profile] sb_fag_ends prompts.

Surely German must have a spare word for when you start cooking and realise you don't have an onion (and have to go to the shop where they only sell them in threes because you can't be arsed to go to a bigger supermarket for one item and you'll never get through all of those on your own)?

I've had a four day weekend with very few committments and yet all I have managed to do is go shopping on Friday (bought noting of note), take the cat to the vets (she's fine) and clear out my cutlery drawer (I now have very few forks).

I have nothing to show for my time!

I have just stabbed my hand with a steak knife. There's a visible slice into the flesh but curiously, there is absolutely no blood.

Does this mean I am a robot?

Some random things:

  • I have given in and accepted I need glasses. More worrying was that I needed them for distance and reading. Pooh. But the plus side is that maybe I can read books again!

  • I nearly went on holiday. Not in a Withnail and I way thogh.

  • I got rid of most of my debt! No more credit card albatross.

  • Best news of the day: new album by Goat due in the autumn. Squee! Goat where the pychedelic sound of my 2013 summer.

I am twiddling my thumbs a bit as I had the morning off for a visit from the surveyor for my remortgage (i.e. boring adult stuff, zzzz!) so now he's been I shall do this meme everyone is doing!

Everyone should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL films, like the films that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favourite films but the ten films that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

There are 11 because I couldn't decide what to omit. I think they are a fair representation of most of my favourite films anyway.

1. Lord of the Rings (all three) + The Hobbit (all um 2 as yet) Completism is everything.
2. Scott Pilgrim Versus the World
3. Shaun of the Dead
4. Run Lola Run!
5. Hero (not for message so much as for the look)
6. Masque of the Red Death
7.The Crow
8. Heathers
9. Son of Rambow
10. Kung Fu Panda
11. Strange Days

I would say that I have have no idea what these say about me, but that would be a whopping great lie. :D

Part Three of the Black Widow Photo comic has been removed by Box for 'Copyright Infringement' with no explanation of why and with no way of questioning it.

Why Part 3???????

So I got carried away in the supermarket and bought some hazelnut milk.

Any ideas what I could use it for? (not keen on it straight, I pretty much forgot I don't like hazelnuts when they aren't in chocolate)

Another one for the archive so that I will have something to put on my end of year review. :S

For the prompt "Love Came Down at Christmas", I converted the [ profile] sb_fag_ends Christmas Day calendar image for anyone that might like it as a wallpaper:

I should have posted this little [ profile] sb_fag_ends prompt fic here ages ago:

Title: Enjoy the Silence
Author: Bogwitch
Word Count: 221
Rating: Teen
Pairing: Spike/Buffy
Spoilers: Post-Series sometime, but denying the comics existence as usual.
Summary: A comfortable silence
Authors Note: written for the prompt Graveyard Dirt, from the SB Fag Ends Halloween Challenge 2013

The silence was surprisingly… comfortable for them.

That was a good word for the amiable, post-coital glow Buffy felt. She stretched out against Spike’s lean, hard body and tucked her head into the crook of his arm. No words were necessary this time and even Spike didn’t seem to want to ruin their reunion with chatter. She was happy for once, and if the slightly smug grin Spike was currently pressing against the crown of her head was anything to go by, so was he.

She stroked a lazy palm affectionately across his stomach, tracing the lines of his familiar six-pack of muscles with her fingers as she ran her calf over his, relishing in the new connection, the skin to skin touch. If she had ever thought they would reach this perfect place after she’d pushed her way out of her coffin through the graveyard dirt, she might not have given him such a hard time the first time around. Maybe. Perhaps.

But that was then and it was too late now for regrets. This was their bed, their love, their moment. They had all the time in the world tonight to be together, to be them. She could take a minute or two to enjoy the silence that lay between them.

It just felt right.


At long last.
