Too damn hot... (July Epistle) [Jul. 3rd, 2005|05:49 pm]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |hothot]

... It's too hot. Far far too hot. And

*shock horror*

I've almost got a tan...

Well, my arms and face are vaguely natural now and the rest of me (covered to the ankles as I am in blaaack) is still UV reflecto-white. Not daring to get my legs out as I'll blind people and cause car crashes - one of those catch 22s - (or catch cancers) ie. can't get them out cause they're so white and can't tan them unless I get them out.

Who wants a goth with a tan anyway lol?!

Have been ubah busy since changing shift - it's helped with my metabolism as well so I'm feeling a whole lot healthier eating at the right times and drinking water all day instead of caffeine on the hour every hour... AND I've been able to go out for a beer and meet Mike in the pub after work so my social life has gone from 0 on a scale of 0-10 all the way up to ELEVEN!!!

Also been doing a lot of going to gigs and whatnot as Mike's band has been fairly busy - and he's in on another few projects as well so will maybe be playing the Maker festy this year. Went to Teignmouth Folk Festival last weekend and did a lot of playing too, which was great, and I've been getting my 'cello out regularly to jam with some folkie friends we have as well...


(apart from the heat - oh what I'd do to sit in the shade and take tiffin al fresco...)

As it is, I'd best be off as I've snuck in to use the parents comp on the way to church - Mike is playing with the band this evening again so I'll have to sit in the pew on my own lol! It's the church my father plays organ at, and where we'll be married next year so we're going once or twice a month to get to know people etc. Wedding plans are still on the go, just seen some perfect coats in River Island and got a pattern for the dress too...

Watch this space. Some buggers got to...

Ho hum. Must dash. Hope you're all alive and well and enjoying the searing hideous heat...

Drop me an email or a text or something and I'll try to catch up when I can with everyone.

*big hugs all round*

Hi! Waves happily.
Is it still superheated down your way? Here we've had better temperatures this last week, and even some nice sunny days between the thundrstorms and lowering cloudy bits.

Just wanted to stop by and say 'Hi'........

I'm 35 and have been a huge Dracula/vampires fan since the mid-80s. I also like the anime/manga Hellsing and Phantom of the Opera.

My fav activity is reading pro author vampire fic. Here's a link to my favs http://www.livejournal.com/users/dracschick/12978.html

Feel free to read my LJ, Dracula fanfic and friend me if you think we have similar interests. I am always interested in making new vampire fan LJ buddies.

Take care,

goth with a tan? solution!

if anyone asks what happened to all the porcelain-hued flesh that has recently been sun smeared, tell tham you've been enbalmed recently. works like a charm! in case you are wondering who the f%#k i am, i chained to your journal by going to my mindmap and clicking on a series of interesting names. talk to you (later/never)[choose one]

Re: goth with a tan? solution!

Embalmed sounds like a damned good excuse! Cheers!

Well, I disappeared too so I'm not one to talk. But where are you? Maybe I should actually read further back to see if you left the information here. :D

Marriage? Woo! I definitely missed some things.

Hope you're doing well.
