I'm back!

Let's see if I can also post... I think I'll leave making a picspam post to whenever LJ is working properly again, especially as I haven't got any picspam prepared yet. So here's just a short(ish) overview of what I've been up to. (Erm, yes, depending on one's definition of short(ish).)

DiaCon Alley: great fun! Met up with [personal profile] ayerf at the Liverpool Street train station upon my arrival to London; we headed straight over to St Pancras from there and off to Canterbury.

Cut to spare the f-list from all the blabbering. )

The trip was absolutely wonderful, but now I'm exhausted. Didn't do anything yesterday, and now it seems I've picked up a cold somewhere - very sore throat today and slight fever - so I don't think I'll want to go out today, either.

At least I do have stuff to do at home - will have to start betaing [personal profile] ayerf's [community profile] sshg_exchange fic, the first chapter of which is already in my greedy paws. I'm so glad I got mine handed in before the trip - don't think I'd have the energy to deal with it now. (Also, that meant that I didn't have to be too scared of Shiv when meeting her. The Eye of Shiv is intimidating enough when turned at Other People.)

Right, glad I've saved this as the dozens of attempts at posting all day long haven't worked... *eyes LJ threateningly*

(Note: posting this to DW now instead, just so I wouldn't lose it. I doubt the crossposting to LJ will work either, but we'll see.)

Still not feeling too great, but nothing like yesterday - nose still blocked (and sore from yesterday, although I put plenty of cream on it last night - which burned like hell, but was worth it) and throat could be a bit less sore, but in general, I'm hopeful it'll have passed by tomorrow.

Speed typing meme. )

Pirate name meme. )

Also got a few more random London pics uploaded, so here they are.

Eight London pics. )

I've actually managed to make a tiny start in catching up with all the reading... although I've only managed to read a few of the shorter exchange fics so far. Should get myself some tea and get on with it.

I have a cold. Had a fever too when I got up but that seems to have gone down, mercifully. Throat still sore although I can at least speak now, unlike when I got up. And I still need to blow my nose every 2 minutes or so. (Where does all that stuff come from, anyway?)

Anyway, here's a bit of random London picspam. I still haven't got around to looking at my photos, but mum has done that and started choosing the prettier ones, so I'm just nicking whatever she's deemed worthy.

Four pics behind the cut. )

I've also finally got around to unpacking a bit and organising the stuff I brought home... got The Prestige DVD as a present from [livejournal.com profile] chilliconcarne and [livejournal.com profile] elen_ancalima, which was nice as I'd wanted to buy that anyway. And then I got a special edition of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - [livejournal.com profile] chilliconcarne had been kind enough to edit out everything without the Sheriff in it. I suspect it makes for a much better film that way.

I also got a Harry action figure (hmm, mostly to make sure mum won't get too suspicious of my having only Snape & Hermione figures). It's rather unfair how Harry seems to have no trouble standing up on his own! And his jacket can almost be removed. On the other hand, his wand keeps falling off all the time.

Want tea now.
