An angel who did not so much fall as saunter vaguely downwards...  

Today, I got up at two in the afternoon and had a bubble bath (green). Mmm, fun.

When my mother enquired as to my non-appearance at college on a day of college, this conversation ensued.

ME: (loftily) I took the day off to celebrate Thanksgiving, as my religion requires me to do.

MOTHER: Which religion is this, then? I thought you were an atheist. That's what you said last week.

ME: Um...Americanism?

MOTHER: That's a religion?

ME: Yes. About...lots of people live there, too.

MOTHER: (suspiciously) Ah. Right. Things become clear //I always knew you were a few ants short of a picnic and now I'm proved right! Yess!//. Pity your religion couldn't, say, point you in the direction of that huge pile of your ironing over there.

ME: Mother! On a day of, er, celebration! Take thy blasphemous self away from me before I am infected with your, er, sin. Please. Er.

Gods bless America.

(And like a good little girl, I started typing up chapter six of A City Visible But Unseen [also, hail my usage of italics! For once not being lazy-ass and cheating with quotation marks! Er. And also er.]

...but got bored after four pages. Oh dear.)

... You could arrange to have a nice American couple knock on your door and share pamphlets with your mother. I'm sure she'd convert in an instant.

I don't think Americans venture this far into the bogs...good idea, in theory, though!

... How's your American accent? You could dye your hair, put on some fake glasses, and pose. If your argument was convincing enough, she may even forgive you for it. >:)

Stand by for Good Omens fic, 20 Decemeber in a journal near you! (That is, er, mine.)

Iconlove!

Mmm, GO fic! **impatient waiting**

...Is it slash, incidentally?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 26th, 2004 03:53 pm (UTC)
Yup. Crowley/Arizaphale. Well, pre-slash, anyway. Christmassy too, and Harry Potter. This is what my faithful slaves lj friends requested. Anything you'd like to add?

Tartan is -always- stylish.
*reads above thread* OH MAN C/A AND MONTY PYTHON AND DOUGLAS ADAMS!? :D!? COOL.

Ahhh I would love to meet (HAHA NOT MEAT) you in real life. Judging by your conversations alone I'd be instantly tongue-tied and lovestruck. xD

Re: Tartan is -always- stylish.
You mean Pterry, don't you? Because Douglas Adams...not yet...but if you want!

Oops, yep, too late...the plotbunnies heard me.

*bows* Honestly, though, I'm a fairly crap conversationalist. I'm better at typing than talking. Maybe because I tend to get awfully bored at people's boring gossip, and tune out...for all the rep, gossip is very rarely interesting, particularly when you don't know the people...

AH! IT'S finished! (Except for some crap about Lupin that I have to decide to scrap or not...I got, like, seven reviews according to my inbox! Can you BELIEVE IT? Me so chuffed!)

Re: Tartan is -always- stylish.
I want, but if it's too much trouble I can not have. ;D

AND MAN THOSE PLOTBUNNIES. Outta control!

Well, so'm I. I think we'd get along splendidly, really. We could act like twittering fangirls, which I never get to do due to the lack of fangirls among my friends. :(

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Re: Tartan is -always- stylish.
Ho hum pig's bum...I may change the title to accomodate that...it's not like the title has any relevance to the story as it stands in any case! xD.

YES, IT'S SO BAD! There are no fangirls amongst my mates! They're like, what did you do for the weekend? And I'm thinking, well, I read some fanfic, and I wrote a bit of my Christmas fic, and finished typing up chapter six, but oops, you don't have a clue what I'm on about, do you?

*le sigh* These plebes...

You have the same religion as Bush!

And you can tell your mom that you were getting into the full American experience, and that in America, the mothers do their children's ironing. See how well that goes over.

Your typing was another celebration of America - you were paying homage to an American: ME!

AHHHH! *sporks self*

They do? O.O Like, wow.

She ain't too hot about America...she has all this research to do for her masters, most of which seems to consist, in her words, of 'American psychobabble'. *le shrug* She particularly hates ye for inventing qualitative research...xD.

'S nearly done...btw, you're beta'ing that too, from now on.

(...that is, if you'd like?! Sorry - I'm used to ordering my mates about, and they obey me in return for being able to hit me whenever they get bored, which of course you can't technically do...eep.)
Caitcoralia13 on November 30th, 2004 04:28 pm (UTC)
Well, mine always did. Now that I'm college, no one does! I am just wrinkled, all the time. It's hot.

Yeah, I will beta. As I said in my other comment though, I am losing at college. I shouldn't even be here right now. But I am. I just can't get enough.

Don't be so sure about the hitting thing. I have a really long arm. I am a tall girl. We will see.

Incidentally, what part of Ireland are you from? My aunt has been to Ireland and loves it, and was wondering.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on December 1st, 2004 10:52 am (UTC)
Wrinkled IS a Look. Mine is sporty, because I wear tracksuits. All the time. The place isn't even worth jeans...

EHA, THANK YOU! But, like I said, it ain't no priority, just a bit of fun. I mean, some of my reviewers are itching because I'm not updating, but Antenora leaves it a YEAR between updates and, er, people complain...but still read.

HAHAHA. Oh god.

Okay...I live in Tipperary, but went to school in Limerick, and now go to college in Cork city. (I live on the border of the three counties, see.) Where was she visiting?
