My friends on my course made me swear! They made me do it!


In other words, boy on our course asked me, deadpan, during the break, if I ever swore. I took a deep breath, said, "F*** no," (see, I can't write it!) and enjoyed the grins.

And then curled up and tried not to cry (although also laughing, but not crying with laughter, if you follow) and squealed, "It feels so wrong! I'm unclean! It hurts!"

Which amused some people quite a bit. But seriously. It's still... not good. I can still feel it on my tongue. Do not like.

I'm not sure if that's actually reassuring or not. Because I had thought I was losing that reaction to swearing, but it appears that's only when I'm quoting, or very angry, or punning.


In other news, I want to go and see Wicked and Avenue Q. Trains and buses from Liverpool to London are SO EXPENSIVE though, or take 6 hours. I was looking at a Wednesday or a Saturday to fit them both in (Wicked has matinees those days) but there's no way I can get back after Avenue Q's evening performance. I'll miss the last train out. So I'd have to stay over. And that makes the cost spike.

Particularly since I have to head back down Thursday the 12th of March to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] cowgrrl for Oliver! before the Hub...

Now, hang on just a minute...

And all of a sudden we're only looking at the cost of an additional night's stay... (:

Also, I feel like I'm gradually clawing back my fanfic mojo. As it were. I have actually quite liked the last two fics I've posted. (Valentine's and a Flavour, for those of you who are trying to keep track of these things. ;) ) 9 Flavours to go, counting a double claim, and then I'll finally get to the three Stump The Writer fics I owe people, and then I can return triumphant to my fanfic100, and get cracking on the epic AU ABC table...



Although I just went to see what's up with [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100 at the moment, since I'd heard from [livejournal.com profile] shadowbyrd that the Big Damn Table had vanished. And after some scurrying around and an offhand decision to see if there was any activity on the [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100_admin journal, which was created in November and thus is something I did not know about I discovered something.

Apparently the "activity check" has just closed and if you didn't reply you've lost your claim.


Okay, as of the first of February, it's a year since I posted a fic for my claim, but whatever happened to "you may take as long as you need"? I had a tag for them on the main journal and everything... ):

Well damn.


If I have lost my claim I shall be very sad. And try desperately to get it back.

Though I suppose I could pretend I knew nothing about it and proceed to finish up a fic and post it to the main journal and tag it up and point to it when I'm told later on that "that's not your claim any more, you were gone!" (Tell no one I said this! There must be no record of my nefarious plan if I am to claim total innocence!)

Shhh! Be vewy vewy quiet! I'm hunting plotbunnies...

Priority shift! Flavours, move over, we have a Fanfic100 coming in hot...

*flees to write fic*
