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.)

Yesterday was a lovely warm sunny/cloudy summer day, without rain for a change (for this week), and as mum had realised that the Tallinn Town Hall is open for the public in the summer, we decided to go. I've been inside a few times over the years, but she never has.

Off to see Prince Caspian now - have been meaning to go for weeks, but haven't got around to it until now. Not having any huge expectations, so I'm hoping I'll like it - didn't have any expectations for the first Narnia film and ended up being reasonably entertained.

And last but not least:

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met "in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Not that I timed it, but I don't think Captain Teague got much more screen time in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Definitely my squeeee!!!! moment of the whole thing though.

Not that I squeed out loud, of course. That would have been most improper.

Keith Richards does make an excellent pirate though... he hardly needed any make-up (apart from that beard) and costuming there. Heh.

Anyway... um. The movie was okay, although I did prefer the first and the second one... this was just too much like one big fight or battle. Although the special effects rocked, Jack got some cool moments (although on the whole, he seemed to be somewhat superfluous to the movie, apart from being a plot device), and I liked tough chick Elizabeth. I could have done with an hour less of battles though, well choreographed as they were.
