Work was SUCH a skive!!

Got there at 10pm...nothing to process...sat about playing tetris on my phone and playing 'guess the popular tune' with friend's ringtones till 5:30am and then went home...

It's almost daylight now, so I suppose I ought to go to bed, but here's something for you to laugh at:

Me in glasses!!

Yes, I wear glasses...but only for long term computer usage...I look rather silly, like a secretary or a schoolmistress lolol!!

Go on, laugh away;)


Right then, bed! Got to go to Kathryn's tommorrow with Sarah's birthday presents, then work as usual...and bill paying, since the bank is finally open lol!!

Erm, erm. Seriously, very nice. You're hired! :)

You should try to take one with your chin a little higher, with your eyes in the middle of the glasses. We must see your eyes better.

Re: By the way...

BOO! back!!

Honestly, I'm only at that angle because I was trying to cut out the reflection of the monitor on them...I tried holding a piece of paper over the screen as well - but then I couldn't see the pictures I was taking lolol!!

Oh, I'm hired am I? When am I due over then?

I won't wear them all the time - though perhaps when I'm as old as my mother (add 24 years to my age or thereabouts) I'll need them all the time!!

I'm good 'and stuff'...busy with work as usual, *grah*...

Sorry I couldn't meet up for a drink when you came down:/

There's nothing wrong with glasses. In fact, yours are better than many I've seen.

How've you been anyway?

Oh, I've been fairly busy with work - that shift change kind of messed up my hours for theatre and whatnot...going back to the 10pm til 6am shift as of today, with room for theatre again on wednesdays and thursdays:)


Apart from that, my lj entries have 'tracked me' fairly well recently lol!!! Email me, you bugger - need to make arrangements for meetups with you and Leah at Whitby!!!

(still can't decide what clothes to take - need an entourage lolol!!)

You can take my giant suitcase - room for all your clothes and you can probably sneak me in it as well.
I've always fancied taking a train trip with loads of luggage - hat boxes, vanity cases, leather-bound chests and the like, and having people cart it about for me while I swan around in vintage evening wear. Sort of Agatha Christie-ish, somehow. I always liked the idea of being old, rich, slightly odd and living in a hotel, which has nothing to do with you going to Whitby, but thinking about Agatha Christie put me in mind of it.

Wish I could fit you in lol!! I've booked the time off for October too, so maybe I should drag you along too!!

Agatha Christie? I'll bet you watched Death on the Nile on tv the other day too...I was watching it thinking "I could SO live like that...what happened to my trust fund and rich benefactors dammit!!"

Oh, are you going to the Loli meetup in london that they're talking about on the loligothuk lj comm?? I don't know if I can yet...at least, not on my own...

I've got that weekend booked off in October, I've been thinking I should go to Whitby :-)

I didn't watch death on the Nile, though I've seen it a couple of times before. I used to have a thing about Agatha Christie when I was about 12 or 13 - I read pretty much all her books. They all seem to merge into one big murder fest after a while though. Taught me a bit about the use of strychnine (sp?) though.

I'm planning to go to that Loli thing - was meaning to email you about it. Please go if you can - 1. I'd love to finally meet you 2. I don't want to find out everyone else is half my age 3. It'd make it more fun 4. I don't have a 4th reason off the top of my head but I was on a roll

Oh you should!!! Twould be fantastic:))

I too had a thing about Agatha Christie...read all my grandfather's collection by the age of tennish lol!! Oh, and I loved the Lord Peter Whimsy books as well...especially the televised series...

Strychnine and S.American blowpipe darts lol!! What was that one? Something to do with a murder on an aeroplane...fantastic cover...the sky was bright blue and the clouds were dripping blood!!

I want to go to the Loli thing...I'll be out of work at 6am Saturday morning, so I could get a train that would get me there at about 2pm I think...do email me about it with details and the date and stuff (I think my email addy is in your forum, which I've been lazy about lately, I apologise:/)...

I'm very afraid they'll all be sixteen...aaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! At least we could bugger off if we feel to old and end up in the Dev in Camden lol;)

I think there was strychnine in about half of them. Something about it simulates a stroke or something sticks in my head. Lord Peter Whimsy - was that Dorothy L. Sayers? I read some of those, they were very good.

Don't worry about the forum thing, TBH I neglect it rather myself. I check in now and then but it seems to run itself without any problems. Like anything relating to Gothic Lolita it seems to be overrun by 14-year-old American girls at times, which is not to denigrate either teenagers or Americans, but they seem keen to deny the Gothic in EGL, which kind of spoils it for me. Still, at least there aren't too many arguments about what is/isn't EGL lol

Yes, Whimsey was Dorothy L. Sayers...forgot who it was the other day lol!!

I neglect my forum too...there are ENTIRE sections I never ever look at lol!! I agree, the 14yr old girls to tend to put me off a bit sometimes;)

Girls who wear glasses....

Hey! Sorry I have been off the radar lately, what with the trip home, the papers piling up and then my sis coming to visit London Town I have been buried. But promise that the CD is now finally in the mail along with a couple of treats since you waited so long for me to get on the ball!!

Oh, I adore the glasses, I always wanted to have specs myself since my older sister needed them. Glasses have the amazing ability to look sassy and intelligent! Neat.

Can't wait to meet up proper in Whitby!!

Re: Girls who wear glasses....

I'm not surprised you have been somewhat buried, from the account I read of the sightseeing week in scar_let's journal!!

Oh wow! I'm so looking forward to recieving it; I'll be sitting on my computer chair and squirming with delight as soon as I hear Neil Hannons voice again hehe...other things too? Cool!!

I always desperately wanted glasses (heaven knows why)...and was ecstatic when I was told I needed them for long term computer usage (stigmatism in my left eye)...rar!!

I can't wait to meet either, hope you got my mobile number ok?

*big hugs*

Me too. I want eye surgery sometime though. Not so much because of vanity, but because they're bloody inconvenient.
