And then I met a man called the Doctor. A man who could change his face. And he took me away from home in his magical machine. He showed me the whole of time and space. I thought it would never end.

Good. I'm thinking of tapping in to the DW marathon (I think it's today), while I do homework.
Oh, and you have a rep.

Hey guys.

Damn, I was all set to go shopping with my mom and then my dad comes in and is like "We need to take pictures to send to your new school" and then he took a picture of me and told me I looked fake. And then I kind of blew up. I didn't know it was possible to feel this much anger.

Afternoon team. I'm test-driving a first-person version of my YA UF, which I think should remove much of the pronoun confusion of a female protagonist among an overwhelmingly female cast. Protagonist about to end up in a car crash slash ambush in a motorway tunnel somewhere around the M25.

On a random note, jam on pancakes instead of syrup is rather tasty. *om nom nom*

ETA: I've killed it with the random, haven't I?

Ha! Yes. It's the London orbital motorway, the circular road that goes around London. Notorious for grinding to a standstill at peak hours. It is not yet notorious for ambushes by sword-fighting ninjas in tunnels, BUT IT WILL BE.

Hey, guys.

So today, I bought the complete series of Glee on DVD (I HOPE IT WORKS), I Am Number Four (book), Clockwork Angel and City of Fallen Angels.

Just under £45 spent on all of that.

I slept forever today. And I'm still sleepy. But whatever. Not much writing happening, since I have family here.

How's everybody else doing?
