Right. So I meant to have some sort of informative post about the fact that I was going to be away from the internet for a couple of months, often well away from anywhere where I could get online, and then... I didn't have the internet for a month before I got around to doing that.

I shall continue to be away with a fair degree of regularity (with some two- and three-day exceptions) until mid- to late December. I will post In Possession of a Fortune at some point before that (god, I sucksucksucksuck); if you are someone else to whom I owe something (most notably [ profile] nemo_r and [ profile] phantomjam, I believe) I will get it to you by the end of this week, when I will be skedaddling again.

If I have failed at life elsewhere and owe you something, too, please let me know here.

If there is some sort of... er... fandom... situation... emergency? (I do not know what kind of emergency that would require my incompetent assistance might ever arise, but... well), [ profile] arlad can get hold of me quickly. E-mail from a variety of other folk gets forwarded to my phone (which is great, when I have phone signal, which I have not in the past few weeks but will this month, I think), too.

This past month I've stood on cliffs and eaten amazing ice-cream while surrounded by cured ham and listened to part of Defenders of the Realm while atop a lake on a mountain with no-one else around for miles: it has been very good. I have missed you all, though.

If it has been your birthday: happy birthday!

If you are doing NaNoWriMo: good, good luck!

If you want a postcard from nowhere, send me an e-mail with your address, please (sigebeam(AT)gmail).

If you have any good due South recs: please! Me! Me! I'm having a Kowalski/Fraser renaissance like you would not believe. I think it's been the walking in the cold and building things and telling myself, "If I were in a [ profile] cesperanza story, I'd be well on my way to paying for a happy Canadian-shack ending with this task." Nodnodnod.

Much love and happiness to you all.

But this icon meme is so pretty, Ma, and everyone is doing it... )

Gacked from everyone, and expanded to fifteen films because I'm a dork.

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb, and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No googling/using IMDb search functions.

People say to me... )

Right. An eclectic, extremely geeky mix, to celebrate the fact that the last of my dissertation woes will end tomorrow at 12 noon.

Because constructive criticism is wonderful and appreciated, and I think this is an interesting experiment (I've already left comments left and right).

Everyone and their monkey is doing this (and I've shamelessly taken advantage of this fact elsewhere), so I'll comply with my re-posting obligations, but buck the trend and adapt this meme (to hide my collective-thinking ways).

1. You comment in the first five comments, telling me a bad joke.

2. I make you something. It'll probably be misshapen or incoherently written, but I'll try my best to make it nice, and its creation will involve love and attention.

3. Your joke shall be my prompt, so choose wisely what man you have walk in to/into a bar.

4. You decide whether you want to post this in your journal and pass the gift-giving love on or not. There are advantages to doing either. Here are some things to consider:

a) Passing it on gives you a good feeling, and creates and adds to a sense of global good feeling: this is good.

b) Not having to pay it forward if you're stressed and stretched for time is nice, too: sometimes you just need to receive a gift and not reciprocate.

c) Haley Joel Osment got stabbed in that movie and I cried during the candle-vigil music montage. Just saying.
