Thanks for all your kind and lovely comments the other day. I hadn't meant to vent quite that much but it really helped just to write it all in a fury. Oddness.

I am driving up to Yorkshire in about half an hour, as my dad wishes to be chauffeured around the city so he can buy stuff this afternoon. (He forgot how to drive and now he isn't permitted anyway).

This gives him a clear window of at least an hour when we're trapped in the car and he can tell me how my life should be improved, which will amuse him greatly *g*

He sounded in grand form on the phone.

I have to drive back on Sunday morning because I am doing the FP shift at work on Sunday. First time ever designing the front pages. As Bridget Jones might say 'v.v.good. And yet v.v. bad. Am cacking self.'

Because I got in at 2am last night and *had* to get plenty of sleep for the long drive, I was awake until 5am. I finished "Angel" by Marion Keays, which was a load of chicklit nonsense, then I wrote stuff. I would roll my eyes at myself but it was only 155 words

Heh. I remember writing stuff. Well, vaguely.

I was amazed by how many people didn't like the Buffy finale. I guess that the whole thing boils down to me being easy to please as long as it feels right (in a manner much better described by haphazardmethod)


Have a wonderful weekend, all.

I send good vibes Japan-wards for you, C. May heads be pulled out of arses, sharpish

Don't you dare roll your eyes! It's a wonderful little piece. :-)

I'm sure the front page will be greatly improved by your creativity. And if anyone says otherwise, send them over here so I can whack them into an appropriate state of adoring appreciation. *g*

WHOA. (How did I miss this? Yeesh.) I am amazed your parents didn't murder anyone at the hospital -- say, the hellish nurse on the phone -- because the hospital staff so obviously deserved a good killing spree. I'm glad your father's doing okay, and I hope your mother got some much needed rest. {{{to the entire K. family}}}

Am wafting good vibes your way. May your time as chauffeur not cause you to actively steer into oncoming traffic.

Also: the 155 rocks. Yay! More! :-)

Many thanks for the good vibes. As it turned out, there wasn't much traffic about at 5am so I settled for scaring the murder of crows on the roads *g*

155 very good words. I like :) (Plus, you know, nekkidness is always a good thing.)

Thanks for that

(Plus, you know, nekkidness is always a good thing.)

I've tried this as a chat-up line. It's surprisingly ineffective *g*

155 words: most excellent! Planting yourself in a corner with a laptop or a pen or anything that can be used to make words is a really nice way to break away from any insanity that may be around you. I'm just sayin'. :-)

You have a wonderful weekend too!

You wrote! How marvelous!

And it's excellent! I particularly like the way she spits out "polite".

Have a restful weekend up north, if that is possible.

Wish you'd write more.

Have a good time up North.
