one of our dogs just died and I'm going to not be online for a bit

Okay, so, here's the thing.

First of all, this post page looks different and I'm not a fan, but I don't post enough to complain about this, I suppose.

Now.

I mentioned this ages ago (which is when I should have started with it, but you know how life goes). I'm currently working on this massive paper, which is part of my final grade. I have to hand it in in ten days, which is really nine days now, so I have to have it finished in eight (and suddenly this thing got really scary).

I'm currently planning to do my writing between the 10th and the 12th.


And I was wondering if any of you have enough time to give it a look. Not necessarily the whole thing, but maybe a section? I don't know. Just to look for glaring errors and to see if it makes sense of if I've messed up badly.

The whole thing is probably going to be around 20k words (I'm basing this on previous essays multiplied to fit the page count because we have page counts rather than word counts which is weird but whatcha gonna do), which I realise is a lot. I don't expect anyone to read that much in basically the two days that I have to proofread this. But if anyone is up to reading any amount, please let me know. PLEASE I'm desperate. Just tell me, like "I'd be up for 2k" or "I'll have a look at your intro and conclusion" or whatever, and I'll love you forever. I swear. I can also send stuff out as I write it really, because I'll have a part written on the 10th (hopefully) and another on the 11th, and so on.

I promise you that it's an interesting topic, and that I'm a solid academic writer. It's not going to be a drag reading it, just... a lot.

The topic btw is Children in Horror Fiction, and so far I'm examining Stephen King's "The Shining", "Carrie", and possibly "It" or "Pet Semetary". I'm also going to look at books written for children, two Goosebump novels and one Fear Street. If I feel like it fits in at all, I'll look at original fairy tales and another novel like Woman in Black or Interview with the Vampire, but that's becoming a bit unlikely now.



So yes. This is a sad and desperate cry for your help. I know I'm asking a lot. I wish I'd started this sooner so there wouldn't be this amount of time pressure.



comment or mail me or AIM me, but if you don't because you think I suck or you're just not interested or don't have the time, that's okay as well. I'm an idiot for doing this on such short notice anyway. And I love you all nonetheless.
( though of course I will love the people who help me out a bit more, because I have to really )

I heard it's your biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirthday!!!

I wonder if there's anything you can't do, and do fabulously. But arguably, poetry is what you're best at. So naturally, I wasn't intimidated at all, and wrote you a fabulous Haiku!


   So there you go!   


Have a very happy birthday and a fantastic night and everything! And of course, a brilliant life.
I've now started my official four month period for writing this 50-60 page thing. Need a structure in two or so weeks.
Let's get this partay startayd.

My topic is Children in Horror Fiction. I wasn't too sure about it for a bit but now am properly excited again.
I dreamt that Carole and I had been commissioned to co author an hp/DW crossover in which Lily Evans is the tenth doctor's companion (in a way).

Carole had it all planned out. It was going to be mostly letters, the last one being Lily getting mad at him since he stopped replying. I'm sure he only did that because she had fallen in love with him (dream!croll's idea as well) and he knew she belonged with James, because, you know, there are these fixed points in history, big events that even timetravel can't change. It was quite tragic though because the Doctor had been falling for her as well, because of her wit.

I cannot find the proper words this squee calls for :D

I couldn't be happier! I can't believe I won something. Also, I'm just incredibly happy for everyone else. And even if your favourite fic didn't win, that doesn't mean it was bad. So many of the fics that were nominated were absolutely brilliant.

HANDWRITING MEME - Started by Julia

Because I'm one of those hobbits that really admire elves and want to go to Rivendell. And that's why I do what they do. 

So, yes, post anything you want in the comments and I shall write it down for you. With a pen on a piece of paper. Possibly even a fountain pen. I can make you a doodle for it as well. Then I'll take a picture and post it here.

I'm going to a friend's farewell party on Sunday – he's one of my best and oldest friends, and he's going to Japan for half a year (he's been there for a year before) for part of his practical year (he's studying to become a doctor).

Okay, that was irrelevant.

What I really am posting for is – what sort of food thing do I bring? We're having a BBQ where everyone is bringing their own meat, and he's buying drinks etc., but he also asked for salads and desserts. Do I bring just a noodle salad or a dessert as well? I love making desserts, but what would I make?

I'm all out of ideaaaas. 


Also, do we give him anything? His bday isn't until the 31st, and he's leaving two weeks before then (so in a week). Is a farewell party a gift giving occasion? 
I was going through my photos just now, and this is a honey badger we saw at the zoo last month. Faster than the leopards!

I was at the garden with my parents today.

They have so much stuuuuff there! 

I brought back over 2 kg of berries and cherries and that was less than they took home, and there's so much we didn't pick. Like literally, I was picking berries into my bucket and the bucket grew fuller and fuller and the bush was still just as red. Cherries are even more insane. So many. They are so deliciously ripe. When you put them in your mouth, they explode and there's like a litre of juice in each one. Maybe not that much, but OMG SO JUICY. 

It's berry heaven there really. 

I made a nice yoghurt thing with raspberries and redcurrant when I got home, and picked almost all the redcurrant of their stems. Then I froze some stuff because it's so so nice and I'm terrified of it going bad! 

Gah I love berry season. I could live on berries. So nice. I might take some more back on Sunday actually. There's so much I want to make! cupcakes and yoghurts and ice cream and aaaaaah! and also I just want to eat them exactly as they are because they are so delicioussss. 



This is me on a berry high. I won't apologise.
