A long while ago now, I mentioned to queen_of_snapes that I had no writing deadlines for fests or anything of the sort, which I hadn't experienced in a year and was a bit put out of it since it was due to dissertation/work/exams. She gave me a writing assignment due the 8th. I was to write about Minerva McGonagall, Rolanda Hooch and Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank - some sort of romantic triangle. I had to include jealousy.

queen_of_snapes, I finally got something done for you - though it's a day late (two, now that it's gone midnight). I don't think it's as jealous or as sexual-triangle-y as you wanted. It's not really very anything, really, but a bit of filler. But it's writing during a writer's drought, so that's something. 1000 words of nothing during a period of nothing is certainly something!

I'll post it up for you, then, before I tuck into the wine Roberts has offered me. (; (Unbeta'ed. Wrote it tonight and just wanted to post it for Queenie.)

Kiwi of the crooked smile toasts you.
Here is a crooked Kiwi smile for you! That is Roberts' wine in a glass that once held a candle. I'm watching Battlestar Galactica. Any time I find a new couple I like, I simply holler "SHIP!" It's great fun. Now I have started exclaiming "USTeeeeeee!"

I should be revising. But, Saturday night. But, wine. But, Minerva McGonagall, Rolanda Hooch and Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank. But, Rosethorn and Lark. But but but...

Tomorrow. As alway: tomorrow!

This post is brought to you by some post-revision eye-rolling. (Thank goodness we all have to do extra reading for the exams anyway, because the lectures are all blurry pictures, diagrams or screenshots from websites [including Wikipedia].)

A ridiculous and heart-warming set of pictures.Collapse )

Now my ponytail has been replaced and my hair is pulled back in a hair-stick bun. Dearest universe, that indicates I mean business. Just so you know.

(Also, when I say exam revision is depressing, I don't just mean the act itself - I mean revising for ecology exams is depressing. Think of all the issues out there in the world from rising global populations to cancer and hunger to dwindling resources and global warming to species going extinct and habitats disappearing. Good. Now throw them altogether into my course and shazzam, here I am, revising them! Depressing. That's what I mean. Well, and the other one.)


They say goldfish have no memory; I guess their lives are much like mine and the little plastic castle is a surprise every time. And it's hard to say if they're happy but they don't seem much to mind.
