revolutions: The words "everything will be okay" written on wooden floorboards. (everything will be okay)
Sooo, open beta in, what, forty minutes? Awesome. (Although now I will no longer feel all cool and exclusive for having a journal here. Hahaha.)

Today has been made of lying on my bed feeling exhausted and not writing my essay on Claudius. Even though Claudius is easily my favourite emperor, thanks to Derek Jacobi and Robert Graves. (Because I, Claudius is totally a historically accurate documentary. Shut up.) I did, however, manage to book an appointment at a clinic next week for a whole new round of blood tests, scans, etc. Mostly focusing on fertility issues this time round, since... well, I'm nearly thirty, I have messed-up hormones, it's been an issue that's been hovering around in my head for a while, and... I at least just want to know if things are working properly, you know?

... so, yeah, needles. Man, I love needles. And when I say "love", I mean "violently hate and fear". I'm kind of proud of actually being brave enough to do it, though. Look at me, being a grown-up.

(Heh, I just got an email telling me my (fake) paid Dreamwidth account has expired. Ohnoes! I'll have to make do with only six icons for the next.... half an hour. XD)

Made another community, because I can: [community profile] creepypasta. Share and discuss creepy stuff of all varieties. :)

And now, I think it's time for this journal's very first meme, taken from a couple of people around the place...

Make a list of ten fictional characters. Pick LJ(/DW) usernames for them. Then answer the questions!

1. Dream (Sandman) - [personal profile] lordshaper

revolutions: Text icon: "We need more good crazy." (and then I saved the world!)
Quiet day at the museum, mostly. Spent about half an hour chatting to some guy; we started off on Anubis (I was in Egyptology today), got on to Neil Gaiman and American Gods, from there to Silent Hill, and then finished up discussing strategies for what we'd do if a zombie outbreak happened right now and the mummies started breaking out of their cases (run for the room with the swords and crossbows, and hope like hell that the T-rex stayed dead). I love it when I run into fellow geeks in the offline world.

Right now, I am attempting to put red streaks into my hair. This could collapse to win or fail. Crossing my fingers.

[Edit: Is anyone else having trouble with crossposting? Mine keep failing, for no reason I can figure out.]

1. I have Variable Flow up and running as my layout now. :) This makes Dreamwidth feel like home.

2. Four people joined my community already? (Okay, three, not including me.) But still! Win!

3. There's a cat on my lap and she keeps trying to bite me in an affectionate, but still somewhat painful, sort of way.

4. I went to Blackpool yesterday for the afternoon with my housemates, and, while it was a completely awesome day full of rollercoasters and sand and sunshine and pink champagne, it also left me completely exhausted and I've spent the whole day today just wishing I could go back to sleep. This was entirely predictable, and was a price worth paying for such a nice day out, so I don't mind that too much. What I do mind is that now it is sleeping time, my body has decided that sleep is the LAST thing it wants to do. What the hell, body.

5. This is especially annoying because I am on dinosaur-handling-table duty at the museum tomorrow, and I really don't want to end up being too exhausted to get there. I've already had to miss the last two dinosaur-table shifts due to exams etc., and I really like doing them. I get to talk to wildly enthusiastic children about prehistoric creatures and show them the fossils and listen to them squee about the T-rex skeleton and things. It's fun.

6. For those of you who are new to my journal (hi! *waves*), I should probably tell you that I tend to make list-esque entries like this quite a lot.

7. I'm sort of craving peppermint tea, even though it's one o'clock in the morning. Maybe I will go make some.

I'm not cross-posting this, because it's Dreamwidth-specific stuff.

1. I made a community! Probably a very low traffic one, but I felt Dreamwidth needed a Danielewski community, therefore: [community profile] navidsonrecord.

2. I love that the maximum username length has been extended to... is it twenty-five characters, I think? This opens up so many possibilities for community and user names. (I did consider going with [profile] wehauefoundftaires for the above, but...)

3. I have no idea yet what my "circle policy" is going to be. I've subscribed to a whole load of people who look interesting, but haven't put anyone on my "access list" except friends I've known for quite a while via other sites. I suppose since I don't plan to make a lot of locked posts at all, it doesn't make a huge difference; I might very well just stick everyone onto my "access list", so I can occasionally lock posts down that contain personal information but people can still read them. Or perhaps I'll just wait until the "hm, do I want to lock this?" issue actually arises. I don't know. This is a whole new interesting social-networking dilemma, hm. :) What are other people doing about this?

I need to figure out this Core2 thing. Please excuse me if my journal looks hideous for a little while; I might try poking around at the CSS, see what I can make of it. (Which will probably be "not very much, right now".)

Today: Ancient Egyptians (at the museum), and Ancient Greeks (in my course handbook). Greek exam is looming at me on Friday morning. Do not want. (I am not a fan of Ancient Greek - I think any language with twenty-four different forms of the definite article is just being silly and should not be encouraged - but it's sorta compulsory for the whole "Classics degree" thing.)

... also, though, the museum has acquired a (stuffed) genet in the Natural History section, and I have been googling them for the last ten minutes. Holy crap, those things are adorable and awesome. I kind of want one.
revolutions: A row of pretty paper journals. (notebooks)
Testing Dreamwidth's crossposting skillz.

... which, yes, for those on Inksome, means I have a Dreamwidth. Won today's invite-code lottery. :D I'm revolutions over there; anyone is welcome to add me.

New journal is new. And shiny. And new. Hi, Dreamwidth!
