*excessive wibblage*  

How Not Cool is it to be totally freaked about going out? Very, that's how. Oh, goooood. It would be okay if you could just go in trackies or something but nooo, you have to wear things like The Shortest Skirt Known To Humanity and Hooker Boots and things, otherwise you might as well have stayed home. On the nice safe warm fuzzy Internet, working on curing yourself of adverbism. (That's getting much  better lately, by the way.)

Yes. This is why I Need Alcohol. Right This Minute.

And also why I don't go out on a regular basis. I'd probably expire from stress.

Not to mention I have a spot right in the middle of my forehead. I should put lipstick on it and then it would look like one of those Indian stickers that I can't remember the name of...rambling. Am rambling.

Must shave legs now.

It's called a bindi. I don't know if that's how you spell it, but that's how it's pronounced. *smirks* How cool am I?

Yeah, I agree with the whole going-out-stress thing. It's one of the reasons I am glad to have not had a social life this holiday. Except I am going out Monday night, ha ha ha. Just not worth it, really, when you can wake up late, go to bed late, and wear whatever you want all day (pyjama tops, green and black striped tights and fuzzy slippers).

No, the thing to do about the spot is wear an Unexplained Headband. It will go very well with The Shortest Skirt Known To Humanity and the Hooker Boots. Also, if you require bandages after the leg shaving, ONLY USE ones with pictures of Disney characters/Winnie the Pooh/Scooby Doo on them. They are the accessory du jour.

I knew I knew it! Was on the tip of my. You know, thing in my mouth.

I suspect going to bed late and getting up late will be par for the course...

I feel much better now, thank you. I'm sitting here laughing. Although that could be the nerve gas.

That reminds you, I meant to ask you as my resident Londoner, what time do cinemas open in London?

(See, even in the depths of RL craziness I am still thinking about the fic! I am such a dedicated obsessive fandomer!

Could you imagine telling a boy, 'Oh, my hobby is writing about pretty boys from Harry Potter copping off'?

ARRRRRHHHHGGGGGG.)

If I tell a boy that, and his response is not one of: nervous laughter, disbelief, shock, disgust, dialing 999 surreptiously under the table... then I will MARRY him. On the spot.

Assuming, of course, that he is straight, and not horrifically ugly.

Cinemas open... well... usually about 10 a.m. Or at least that's when the first showings usually start. And they close around midnight. Unless of course, you're in the heart of the City, where they might have late showings of Rocky Horror or something.

*wrinkles the... thing. In the centre of my face*

Same here. I'll even buy the engagement ring.

If he was gay, I'd still marry him.

Ok, must change fic. Had them opening at 2pm like over here. ARG. Feel sick. Last Barcardi telling on me.

Haha steal my lines why dont'cha. Not that it was mine, I think...

Yikes, and I thought I was bad.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 1st, 2005 07:02 pm (UTC)
You must be joking. You boy. You have pockets. What have you got to worry about?

If I was a boy I wouldn't fancy Tony. I wish I was a boy. OH GOD. I'm pissed.
Lord Marmaduke Newbrycatsmeat on January 2nd, 2005 08:20 am (UTC)
I want a greatcoat with lots of pockets.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 2nd, 2005 12:12 pm (UTC)
It would totally come in handy when on the pull. For many many reasons.
Lord Marmaduke Newbrycatsmeat on January 5th, 2005 11:31 am (UTC)
Actually, it comes from my love of the Scarlet Pimpernel, rather than an insatiable need to fold women up and put them in my pocket.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 5th, 2005 11:40 am (UTC)
*is ignorant* Who, exactly, is the Scarlet Pimpernel?

It wasn't women I was thinking you could put in your pocket, even if some of us are Flat Stanley.
Lord Marmaduke Newbrycatsmeat on January 5th, 2005 12:17 pm (UTC)
Lookie

Hah, stanley.

I, too, hate going out! You dread it, and then try to be positive and convince yourself it'll be fun once you get there, but IT'S NOT!

Ahem. Hope you had a good time, anyway.

And I hate pimples. They should not exist, especially not in the center of your forehead. (Been there!)
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 2nd, 2005 07:37 am (UTC)
YES! Lord, why do we do this to ourselves? I mean, you get to know fanciable people when you are in a sane and sober situation, like college. Hardly anyone gets off with strangers in nightclubs...there's a certain name for people like that.

Er, well. See next post...

I covered it up with makeup. And Laura said, in tones of greatest surprise, 'You look pretty!'

HOW are you meant to respond to that? Particularly when they sound astonished?

Off to do something decent with my time - finish typing Chapter Nine. Oh, and your beta is done, so expect it in the email this evening. I'm not sure you sent me all of it, though...well, you'll see, anyway!
Caitcoralia13 on January 2nd, 2005 09:14 am (UTC)
I guess a scowl and an, "Umm... Thanks?" is in order in that case.

Typing up Chapter Nine is much better than going out. Just think of it this way: Harry will never let you down. That's what I do when I'm in a bad situation. I just think, "at least I still have Harry". On a completely different note, how would you feel about donating to my 'Caitlin Needs a Therapist" Fund?

LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 2nd, 2005 12:19 pm (UTC)
I sometimes wish I had as much in common with my RL mates...

...because I think that A LOT. Ie, I think, well, after everything, I still have this really fun, absorbing obsession...I can still go home and plunge into a whole other world that, to some extent, I can control. Not to mention play in!

Does this Fund accept Fanfic Cheques? xD
Caitcoralia13 on January 2nd, 2005 04:17 pm (UTC)
Oh, I so agree! How did we ever find one another? I'll be going to do something I am dreading, like giving a speech in front of the school, and I just think to myself, "well, even if I make an idiot of myself, the wonderful world of Harry Potter will still be there for me."

Haha, I think that Fanfic Checks actually increase the amount the Fund needs!
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 3rd, 2005 12:33 pm (UTC)
I don't think its so bad, to have something to fall back on. I mean, for lots of people it's other people ... that's what the fandom is, to an extent, but it's never going to let you down or leave you. How bad?

Oh dear, why? Could you imagine telling a therapist all this!
Caitcoralia13 on January 3rd, 2005 01:29 pm (UTC)
It's like religion that way, except without the possibility for creepy extremism!

She would turn me out of her office. "Get your weird obsession off my therapist couch!" she would say to me.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 3rd, 2005 03:08 pm (UTC)
Hmm. I always thought religion was about a) brainwashing and b) getting money out of people. The fandom is what religion should be.

No, she'd be more like 'Eighty dollars an hour, you say? Keep talking!'

(I also love the fact that we assume this highly educated and paid person is a girl!)
Caitcoralia13 on January 3rd, 2005 04:25 pm (UTC)
When I first read your last remark, I was like, "well, all therapists are women." And then I realized that they really aren't. Bless our liberal society!

I've never been a feminist, because it's patently obvious women are superior.

...hehehe.
Caitcoralia13 on January 3rd, 2005 05:04 pm (UTC)
Haha. I don't know. It all gets so confusing, and I don't know what I think, beyond that the genders are inherently equal. People get so up in arms sometimes - it's sad. I had chauvenists, though. And the female version of chauvenists, who the male-chauvenists call "femme-Nazis". Extremism is NEVER good.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 4th, 2005 12:08 pm (UTC)
Hehe, femme-Nazi, that's a good one. Although there were lots of just plain female Nazis. My dad calls me one when I tell him to push his chair in at the table...
