|10:45 pm - Surely it hasn't been a week yet...|
Well that was a busy-ish type week thing. (Shush, I'm tired, it's spazzifying my use of language).
Firstly, since it's most important: Yesterday my interning started! I have my own desk and swipey card and everything! Okay, so not everything, since by the end of the day my computer log-in still wasn't working, but hey, it's a start.
Of course, this did mean that all I did in the morning was read lots of statistics reports on Internet usage, and all I did in the afternoon was look for research papers about Internet usage.
But hey, it's a start.
And I got cake since it was someone's birthday.
...And then I got utterly drenched because the weather was shocking on the way home.
Other things what I have done lately included going to Manifest on Sunday. Which was fun, but I think I need to know more people - or maybe do what I did last time, and latch onto some friendly cosplayers.
I had a nice chat with a Suzaku, but he wandered off to take pictures of people
But I bought some stuff - lots of keyrings, so I basically have a collection now. And a couple of DVDs, but I really need to find a new series or two to look out for (that actually has box-sets out, argh). And some jewellery. Oh, and a plushy syphilis.
Cosplay was awesome to look at, and made me wish I could sew, woe. That said, I did get a bunch of people ask to get a picture of what I was wearing - which was kinda odd, since it wasn't that much different from what I'd wear to a party. Except with fishnets instead of coloured tights. Incidentally, all the people who took pictures of me were guys, and I am not taking that thought any further.
I haven't seen me in any Manifest galleries...
Oh, and in Radical Fiction today we somehow ended up talking about fanfiction. And it got to the point where we were asked to come up with suggestions for radical Harry Potter fanfic (and I was asked to judge).
I think someone's suggest of having Harry be a "rapey midget" sorta won.
...It's not quite Wednesday Weirdness, but Creative Writing does seem to be keeping up it's tradition of having exceptional weird conversations.
Current Mood: tired

Join fandoms where you can do off the rack! Firefly is surprisingly easy to fake, for example...
