Work today was mega busy and stressful in that mega busy good way. Got everything I meant to done. Gayle was a star as always. Then off for a quick post work beer with one of the Big Bosses down from Scotland and some of the team. Home and then pizza. Plus slightly tipsy shopping decisions in relation to Chalkie's big bash at the end of the month. I justified the big piece of red costume jewelery which I was debating over because I own nothing red to wear with and am borrowing Marmie's red dress for the deciding to just buy a nice big red frock in the nearish future. Problem solved, right? =D

I also came home to a Christmas like stack of self-presents from T'Internet. My underskirt came ^o^ Yay I finally have my own hoops! And my amazing hat of amazing. It's ancient - actually from te 1920s and it's beautiful. =D It has that amazing 'old' smell which some, understandably, dislike, but I fell in love with the first time I went into a second hand book shop. (Also my bus pass. Less exciting by far.)

My NaNo is happily plotting itself in my head. I need to write down more of this plotting so I can make room in my memory bank for more plot. I currently half half a slice of stuffed crust pizza to finish and then I'm gonna go and snuggle my gorgeous boy whilst watching inane TV and crocheting.

Life is pretty good today.

Argh I am SICK of being ill. =(
Spent the whole day with a heavy thick head and sickly feeling. Thankfully poets day was poetic enough to warrent Heather deciding we should go home early. Yey. 4 o'clock finish.

RP was off because our GM randomly had to go to Manchester - YAY. Was totally not in the mood. Instead I spent the evening cake making for tomorrow's 30th. My problem with the friend who hasn't been so friendly lately is solved with her not being able to make it to Leeds for her own birthday bash. I feel bad for her but at the same time it's some weight off because even if I feel half better by tomorrow I'm not going to be in the mood for niceties with fickle people anymore than I am currently in the mood for the noisy-ass drunken neighbours outside my window right now. I hope it rains on them so they go inside.

I made a chocolate orange cake. It's not orangey enough but it's still tasty - I know this because I made mini versions with the left overs. Sadly the main-event is too warm to frost so I have to wait until it is. I'm tired and it's like waiting for paint to dry. Or to die. Not sure. I want to try and find something dragony to put on it tomorrow.

Susie has decided that on our weekend sojourn up to Scotland we are going to Club Noir. A burlesque night in Glasgow. Sounds like a laugh and I'm looking forward to it - just scuppered for outfit ideas. The theme is 'American Dream'. Nice and wide and I have enough bits to cobble together several different outfits with only some additions in the way of accesories. I'm torn between a Playgirl bunny with ears picked up cheap coupled with my flesh coloured fishnets, patent kitten heels in black and my gorgeous black corset. (Need to be brave feeling for this one because of the short skirt/boobs out involved in this one).

Good old country/western girl with boots, my little polkadot tea dress, straw hat and neckerchief - never more have I had an excuse to buy the cowboy boots I always wanted but I'd want a pair that last more than a month and don't have the money to spend on them right now.

OR if I can find a pair of little cute red shoes (something I've also had a hankering for for YONKS) and a cheap white Tee I can totally manage a Dorothy from Wizard of Oz.

So my options are many and largely depend on what I find in the sales tomorrow.

I'm holding my breath for the shoes. Oh shoes. How long it has been since I bought some.

So.... Still on the vampire kick. Totally didn't spend £38 on Amazon (including my copy of Sunshine - yay! I look forward to reading that [ profile] zagzagael and [ profile] joey112  I shall let you know how I find it!) on random stuff we don't really need. Did book for Maelstrom. Have looked at several houses today. One was lovely but need to call the council about parking because it's on a main road there are permits involved. If we can get two for both our cars we might be on to a winner. Although I'm hopeful for the few we're due to look at this week as well. My turn to book viewings so I'll see if we can get one or two more in on Saturday.

Also, I have an interview! It's also for the job that I really liked the sound of. In town centre (ish) and for £2K more a year + more responsibility. It's for an accountacy firm but they seem pretty cool. The interview will tell. It's a group interview though, whatever that means. >.< Seminar  + questions I think. They made me call up and leave a message answering three questions.

What do you believe are your 3 strongest attributes?

What 3 things most attracted you to this position?

What 3 things are you most passionate about in life?

Argh. I babbled but... hopefully not too much. I babble when nervous. But hey ho - I think I was true to myself. This is my new resolve in job hunting. I am going to be professional but true to myself. If they don't like me then I don't want to work for them. Life is too short for anything else? Right? Or am I being naive? Meh.

Eurovision this evening. There is a party but it's at the run down bio-hazzard residence of some of my friends. Ick. That's long story but at any rate I'm not sure I want to chill out with the mould on their ceiling whilst watching it.

Also feeling somewhat anti-social and tired. Early starts on a Saturdays always suck.

Thing is it's now nearly 4pm and although we were up and out and looking at houses by 9am I feel as though I've done little today. I played piano for the last hour. Now what?
