I don't really know why, but I am left with the overwelming sense of apathy this Christmas evening. This morning was great - actually slept last night and had a rather nice dream that I didn't want to wake up from. Danced and sung in the shower as I got ready to visit the parents for Christmas. It was from the time I got to Mum and Dad's that it started to go downhill. I mean, they're fighting again but that's kind of usual these days that I can't really attribute that to anything.

I just feel meh.

*shrugs* I am watching docos on TV which always makes me happier. Just kinda sucks to be moodcrashing right now. Oh well. I'm sure tomorrow will be better and I'll be able to post something a little less full of the bleh.

Still, Merry Christmas flist! I do hope your Christmases are full of smiles!

I got my Christmas card today ^_^ I must say, it had great timing. Just what I needed to cheer me up during a rather crap day.

Thank you <3

Okay. Okay.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. While I have yet to actually start playing because the dear housemate has first dibs, she's let me bash about in her game a lil so far and I've watched her play from the start so:

Spoilery stuff over this wayCollapse )

Excuse me while I stand over here and pull my hair in sheer frustrated glee. I keep watching the developer diaries every time they come out, the trailers and WHY IS THIS GAME NOT IN MY HANDS YET OMG.

It is simply beautiful visually, astounding in how they've put so much thought, research and love into creating it. I just...there is no words how much I love this series.

SBS 1 is showing documentary after documentary *glees* Just finished watching one on the "vampire disease" and vampire histeria in Austria in the 1700's which was fascinating. Centred around the so-called "vampire princess" Eleonore von Schwarzenberg. Now there's one on the walls of China which has some interesting Chinese and British interaction via trade. Lord McCarntey trying to open the trade between the Chinese markets and England.

Well, more like trying to impose the European notions of trade superiority. Intersting to see two very powerful forces of trade at the time clashing, considering China was insistant on being the trade super force and didn't like Europe (and Britian especially) not recognising their "trade superiority" England was very particular on making the Chineses conform to their way of life and assert their superiority.

/history geekery.

Sometimes I wonder why I'm not studying history XD Actually I wonder why I am not studying at all.

Sometimes I think I would be the most happy I could be if I could just...be paid to study. Anything. Everything. I was happiest when I was at university. Not so much with classmates as I've never been a social butterfly or anything but spending hours in the libraries, class debates, assignments, arguing with the lecturers, giving tutorials...I miss it. Very, very much.

Had an amusing insult thrown my way today by a girl from work. She told me to "Shut up and fit in" when I was describing my Synaesthesia. It was interesting to me that it was okay for them to talk about going to the doctor to gets meds for mild depression but me talking about things they'd never heard of and what they called "freak mental illnesses" completely sent them into fits of uncomfortable.

My favourite was that it was impossible to be asexual. It just meant that you couldn't find a boyfriend.

I love ignorant people. I want to play with them until their brains explode.

I'm starting to think that I might give NaNo a bit of a miss this year now. The self imposed pressure is having the opposite effect this time around and killing any creativity I might have. Granted I am getting over a nasty flu but I am about as enthusiastic about it all now as I would be getting slapped in the face by a rotting Tuna.

Not that I don't want to write. I really do. I just want to do it at my own pace and throw in some art and graphics as well. It's probably just my usual display of the "fuck telling me what I can and can't do. I'll do what I want" part of my nature. Even if it's myself I am being defiant against XD

I will see how I go but I am not going to thrash myself if I don't make word counts or whatever. I just want to do my own thing, at my own pace. Besides, I have a very empty Tumblr I've been wanting to put stuff on for AGES.

Can't sleep, can't sleep, can't sleep. Sickness has disolved into a rattly chest and an annoying cough. Brain has decided that after putting up with body's need for some sleep in order to repair itself, it is now resuming control.

Body is not happy with this and therefore making it hard to do anything brain wants to accomplish.

Also it is too hot under the blankets and too cold outside. That is just a pointless whinge. Just saying.

I am torn between trying to fight the brain and lying in bed staring at nothing like an idiot or getting up and making tea. Though I am comfortable despite the temperature issue. If it wasn't 3am I might be a little cheeky and text housemate dearest to make me tea XD Yes I have done it before. Yes, she would probably murder me in my sleep.

Next time I go to sleep.

Ugh. This is proving very frustrating. Maybe I can find something to read at least.

I'm sick *grumbles* Sick enough that I gave in and took a day off work today. It might have something to do with me completely losing my voice but mostly I think the not being able to hold my head up because my sinuses were trying to implode my skull was more likely.

Stupid flu.

I've had things planned to do all day and my evil body won't let do them! No writing, no art (why have a day off work when you can't put it to GOOD USE) just sitting with tissues and Codral and tea watching crap TV.

I think I wanted to throw myself of a bridge after the sixth time of seeing the Ab Circle Pro advertiised.

Back to work tomorrow. Definitely. *nods sagely*

Started posting up fills for the Sherlock kink meme. Debating on whether to post both anon and de-anoned - currently just posting anon because ugh, first time writing Sherlock and first time writing fic in MONTHS. I think the last time I wrote fic it was Assassin's Creed fic and it stayed locked away safely on my harddrive.

Though now I've said this, anyone stalking the kink meme and reading this will probably be able to find my fill XD
