Rome-ah, Rome-ah-ah!  

hey, how are you, flist? I kind of miss you!
♥ ♥ ♥

Sorry I haven't been around much this month (again!), but it's been a shitty month to be honest with sickness and work and all that kind of jazz. However, things are beginning to pick up, I suspect because this month is thankfully coming to an end, so I'm feeling more than little happy about life, the universe and everything. Actually, "happy" is a bit of an understatement, I'm feeling pretty damn fantastic right now, and here's the big reason as to why:

§ Rome, 2-7th April: Last night indiefairy , zeitheist  and myself finally got around to booking our trip to Rome and OMG I HAVEN'T STOPPED GRINNING AND SQUEEING AND DOING THE JAZZ HANDS SINCE I HIT THE CONFIRM BUTTON! ASDFGHJKL. OMG, flist! this is like a dream come true in so many ways. Not only am I going to be spending near enough a week with two of my favourite girls, but I'll be spending it in Rome! Rome! A place I've dreamed of visiting since studying it way back in day at school. EEE XD Initially the trip came about through a desire to attend Jus in Bello, but we've since scrapped the idea of attending that con (photo op prices, wtf?!) and agreed that we'd all have far more fun just geeking out and doing the tourist thing. I LOVE MY LIFE RIGHT NOW, GUYS, I AM BEYOND EXCITED, ASDFGHJKL!!!!
In other news,

§ Edinburgh Trip, 3-4th March: before Rome happens, I have a little, relatively exciting, trip planned with my sister. We're doing an overnight in Edinburgh next week, with our main intention being to go and see The Russian State Ballet of Siberia in Sleeping Beauty! Exciting, yes? We think so, especially as we've never seen a ballet up close and in reallife before ;D The rest our two days shall be spent doing obscene amounts of shopping and pub-crawling, I'm sure!

§ Vancon/Vancouver Trip, 23-30th August: as timecake  so joyfully reminded me, THERE ARE LESS THAN SIX MONTHS TILL WE'RE IN VANCOUVER FOR VANCON ASDFGHJKL!!! Not only will be we in Vancouver meeting our boys, but season six has been confirmed and we're pretty damn sure that there's going to be filming going on whilst we're over there and OMG WE MAY ACTUALLY GET TO SEE SOME EEEEEEE!!! I may die of excitement if this actually happened XD omgee.

§ Conventions, general: Even though I think it'd be pushing things (especially with my credit card XD) I really wish I were doing more cons this year. Or just more things. I think last year I was doing something almost every month with at least a couple of my girlies and this year I have almost nothing planned D: The things I am doing are big things right enough, but, well... when you're used to going off and having fun every month it kind of gets you down a bit, you know? I may even be contemplating attending a convention I swore I never would never attend again. Hrrrmmmmm... But whatever. Ignore me, this is probably just the "February" in me talking ;D it's just such a horrid month!

§ On Writing: well, it's been a bum effort this month, but things appear to be picking up again (thank god!) and I fully expect to have both my Secret Angels III fic as well as indiefairy's help_haiti  fic completed/posted come the end of next week. The big bangs are progressing less swiftly but at least they're progressing at all! lol. I definitely have nowhere near the word counts I expected to have for either of them this month but fingers crossed I can make up for this come March.  

mood: chipperchipper

Hey there stranger! :D Oh noes *huggles*. Bloody February, it's always a bastard!

OU LUCKY BENCH! Have lots of fun and take loads of daft piccys for me! ROFL do I even want to know about the photo op prices?

LOL I get what you mean on the convention/meet up drought. I've been stir crazy these past 2 months. Thankfully I have Rocky Horror with sasha_lilyrat and felecie4 at the end of March, and then the Hub4 with Rob and electrcitoes. Gonna miss all you guys when I'm there though :(

Why hello there!

Ugh. february is the bane of my existance, lol. But thankfully I have lots of things to look forward to from here on XD

I will be taking a shit-load of pictures :D you'll be sick of Rome by the time I'm done XD haha. omg a Jensen/Misha photo-op was over £100 and as much as I love them that's like half of what we're paying to fly/stay in Rome for 5nights so totally couldn't justify it! lol

Whoop! Is it the Rocky Horror a theatre trip? Aww enjoy the hub! I'm kind of gutted I can't be there for it D: it'll be so odd not being to there hang out with my girls. lol.

heh, I cannot wait for Rome especially, it's going to be so exciting :)

I am filled with envy over your trips! Especially Rome, alaways wanted to go to Italy and have never quite managed to organise it. There must be lots of pictures!!

If it's the convention that is the most aptly named? RESIST. You know it cannot end well.

On the small vs big things maybe planning more things like the Edinburgh trip? Short weekends away make the month more fun (IMO) and give you little things to look forward to? My empty month at the moment is September because I finish work and move out of my flat the Friday of Roadhouse (I will be there Friday dammit!) and don't start the Masters until the final week. So I'm thinking two short trips. One to Ireland (LOVE that country) and one... it'll come. You can do it quite cheap too (3 days in Paris cost me £150 including travel, accommodation and spending money. *g*)

Anyway, if you think of anything like that needs company, let me know! I'm all for cramming more into life than is physically healthy.

But hooray for happy making things. *g*

I've been dying to do Rome since I studied Ancient Rome/Greece in school. This is like an actual dream trip :) so there will be shit-loads of pictures and gushing over the whole thing, you can count on that! haha.

I FAILED, KIP! I GAVE INTO TEMPTATION D: ...okay I'm actually excited about it, but I'm not expecting anything from it, if you know what I mean? I'm going for the girls and the guests and RE can take all their other shit and shove it as far as I'm concerned XD

Well yeah, I'm not even looking to do "big" things, I just like have things to do, you know? Last year there were lots of little trips down to wales/london just to hang out with friends, but most of these aren't going to happen again this year D:

ooo I've never been to ireland, I'd love to go there one day :) what're you going to do whilst you're there? heh. I'm sure you'll come up with something else for your other weekend. I kind of like having one of two weekends just for "me time" but overall travelling/meeting with friends is much more fun!

heh, I certainly will ;D

I'm so very jealous of you going to Rome, but I shall be less jealous so long as you promise me one thing! Pictures!! Lots and lots of pictures!! Even if its just of the place ya staying! ;) Hehe! Have a brilliant time in Rome, I know ya gonna so much enjoy it. :)

I've heard and seen loads of pics from Vancouver (a couple of friends did the Stargate tours there a few years back) and i've heard its a really nice place to visit. So have fun there as well! You really are becoming a little jetsetter aren't you! ;)

So you think you may do LFCC? I know a few of the others have mentioned it, I myself am hoping to go if nothing but to actually have a con to attend to this year! Cause OMG, last year was a shite and this year I need cons!! Hehe!

I'm looking forward to both yours and Georges bigbang fics! I'll cheerlead you both along, and even prod ya if it is needed! XD

I can certainly promise you lots and lots of pictures! heh. There'll be so many you'll be sick of hearing about it, I'm sure!

I'm really looking forward to Vancouver too, it looks really nice and the con should be especially exciting! heh.

I may do LFCC! I'm currently in the process of convincing my boss to let me have that weekend off, so I will let you know! I don't think there's anyone I'm particularly after seeing though, so may have to wait and see the gust list before I properly decide!

We totally need to get the Cardiff meet sorted, I need that in my life! haha

:D heh I'm so excited for this! ...it's costing me an arm and a leg though, omg, it'll definitely be the most expensive convention I've ever attending! lol.

And yes, we have a sixth season! YAY! I will totally be snapping pictures (and likely videos) like a mofo if we catch some, omg, it'd be far too amazing not to! XD
