This week has been so boring. >_< Work involved sorting paperwork into numerical order, then ripping each thing apart into just the necessary stuff to be filed and then putting dates into a computer. RP has been uber-slow - is everyone on hiatus or something? Geez...

I... had something I was supposed to do today. But what is it? I know I didn't go to work but I'm not gonna get in trouble for that. Probably. >.> But I fell asleep. I woke up early enough but then I went in the shower and fell asleep again after that...

I haven't had a call form my boyfriend to say he's out of work/whatever yet and it he doesn't call in about 45 minutes, I'm going out anyway. I'm so goddamn bored.

I am technically supposed to be working yet have managed to catch up on tags. Except for some stuff I owe in museboxes and things but they will require more thought and time than I have between calls right now.

Today is a good day.

Except I'm really goddamn hungry right now.

Now for a pairing meme~ Yoinked from [ profile] lady_nephenee

Comment with a pairing and I'll tell you:

1. When I started shipping them
2. What I think their challenge is
3. What makes me happy about them
4. What makes me sad about them
5. What moment I wish had never happened
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other
7. My happily ever after for them

I have no voice today.

Why is it that when I am sick, I am still running around, trying to get my boyfriend well again? Where is my help? Why don't I get any care?

Oh. That's right.

It's because I'm not home. Seriously. When I get sick, only my mother or my gran has ever taken care of me. (I do not count slipping pills into my coke a form of care, as I recall my dad doing. Soluble paracetamol is nasty enough in water, never mind ruining a perfectly good glass of coke with it for a headache.)

But anyway. I have no voice. Well, sometimes I do but it's croaky and hoarse. I have been able to eat more today though so I think I should be getting better faster. I need to be well by Friday to finish the christmas shopping that we have been unable to do because we're ill and then get home by 6:30 at the latest.

But I get to spend the meantime watching X-Men Evolution~ Man, I love this show~ <3 It's been forever since I last watched it. Kurt is totally my favourite. Who can't adore a fuzzy blue elf? XD

Anyway~ Meme time~

Day 05 - Your favorite Final Fantasy City/Town.
Ah... now this is hard... I like... the idea of Midgar - the whole metal city suspended in the air and stuff. The idea of it is pretty cool. Alas, but the reality of it is not so cool. The slums kinda eliminate it for me. There there is Treno. I always likes going there, and the Black Mage's village in FF9 but they're still not favourites. Besaid and Kilika are pretty in FFX/X-2 but... still not what I would call favourites.

Hm... at the moment, I think it is a contest between Rabanastre, Bhujerba and...Palumporom and Nautilus.

Day 05 - Ship with the least chemistry

My boyfriend is really ill today. Barely functioning ill. He's come down with it quite suddenly - I think it's flu but I'm not sure - and now I'm starting to feel ill. But what really bugs me is that he's still got to go into work or he'll be fired. He's had one sick day and he missed a day of mandatory overtime because he didn't know it was mandatory - and why is overtime mandatory anyway? I thought overtime was a voluntary thing? But the souless people that run Nissan don't care that people get sick unextectedly, it seems. So he's got to go into work, go to the medical centre and see if they can declare him unfit for work. If that happens, he's got to get a note from them and then take it to his line manager - who will apparently be disappointed that my boyfriend cannot work tonight. Apparently if one can stand, they can work. Nevermind that my boyfriend could barely manage to dress himself to go out to work. He's not eaten anything either, despite me and his mother trying to persuade him.

Anyway. Memes.

Day 03 – Your favorite Final Fantasy theme/song.
Now, I suspect people may assume that OWA is my favourite, right? It's not. This is:

Day 03 - Ship you need to happen now
Um... I have no idea. Just... pick any one of my fave pairings! ^^; I've got no idea, can't really think of any at the moment but... hmm... *gazes around for inspiration* Perhaps Alice/Tarrant from Alice in Wonderland? Or.... nevermoind. I'm out of ideas for the moment. fffff *goes back to tidying bf's room while he's out*

Final Fantasy Meme

Day 02 - Your least favorite Final Fantasy game.
Ah, geez... I can't really pick one, I think. Not out of the ones I've played. I mean, I've never played FFXI because it was all online and I've no interest in that. Nor have I played Crystal Chronicles because I heard it was terrible - and that from a fellow FF fan. Mmm... I think perhaps my least favourite game is...either... FF2, FF10 OR... FF10-2? I dunno... FF2, I found it hard to  develop the characters. I kept mixing things up and then they weren't as strong as they should be and were dying because I would get confused. Then there was X and X-2... Tidus is a whiny little cry-baby and X-2 just didn't grab me the way other FF games did. I do enjoy playing it from time to time but... ah, maybeit's because I've never fully finished FFX before I tried playing it? I got so far but then there was a boss that was giving me trouble and while I was training up to go beat it, my boyfriend deleted my game. Over 100 hours of gameplay, gone in a drunken moment. I'm still catching up to where I was.

Oh, but just because these are my least favourites doesn't mean I really dislike them. Quite the opposite, in fact. ^^;

Shipping Meme

Day 02 - Your first ship
Oh geez... I really don't know... I can't remember everythig I used to be into and what came out before what because I used to ship stuff before I even knew what shipping was. I guess... One of my first ships was Sephiroth/Aeris, back when I first started getting into fanfics. Then I discovered Seph/Cloud and forgot all about Seph/Aeris for years and years.... But then there are also the cartoons I was into back when I was about the same age I got into FF7. I remember wishing Arnold and Helga from Hey Arnold! would get together.When i watched Digimon, i wanted Tai and Matt to get together, or Tai and Izzy at one point.., or Izzy and Joe. ...I remember far too man of these character's names. Um. But yeah. I'm really not sure what my first ship actually was. There were lots of things I was into around the time I started getting onvolved in fanom and things... I rememeber Harry/Draco being one of my first slash ships too. Before that, I didn't ship either of them with anyone.

Day 01- Your Favorite FF Game.
Final Fantasy VII. It has to be. I know it's got its faults, I acknowledge that but... I love it. I love the characters, the world... everything. <3 And I have also had a... slight obsession with Sephiroth ever since playing the game back in... 1998, I think? >.> Um.

Day 01 - Current favorite ship
I've got a couple of current ships but... mostly, Sephiroth/Rinoa. <£ They're so damn cute, the way we play them. Otherwise I'm reading a few Harry/Lucius fics as well. ^^; And Sephiroth/Cloud fics.

"You know how sometimes people on your friendslist post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know?"

The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?

Bold the ones you’ve read! Italicize the ones you’ve partially read!

I don't think I've read quite as many as I should have...

Memetime~ From [ profile] timeonherside 

Reply to this with GO GIGANTES and I'll give you five questions.

1. How many times have you done NaNoWriMo before?

I've done it twice before, first time in 2007 and then again in 2009. I wish I'd had the time to do it in 2008 but due to the job I had (temporary christmas job doing data entry for Royal Mail) I didn't have any internet access for the last two weeks of November and would have missed the due date.

2. How'd you come up with your plot from this year?

The plot this year is something that's been sort of boucning around my head for a while. When I was younger, I read a story about a faerie procession and someone who witnessed it asked the faeries where they were going. The faeries responded that they were leaving this world for good and returning to their own realm because this world was not suited to them anymore. Then I got to thinking about what would happen if the faeries came back and what they would think of how this world has turned out. And then I wondered how everyone would react to suddenly having faeries and mythical creatures all over the place when so many people don't believe in that stuff anymore.

And that is how my story was born.

3. As I keep seeing you mentioning the Wake (I was there briefly last year actually!) who are your kids there?

At the moment I play Sephiroth (godamongmortals), Aziraphale (diingattheritz and Lymle Lemuri Phi (minisymbologist). I've been thinking of dropping Aziraphale though. The muses seems to have left me.

4. Favorite book series?

Oh dear god, how can I choose? There are so many. The Dresden Files, The Nightside books, Dragonlance books, the Harry Potter books, to an extent (I still cannot read the fiftth book. Umbridge pisses me off so much. No other fictional character makes me want to kick puppies the way she does) and... I know there are other series I read but I honestly cannot think of them at the moment. It's hard to pick just one series.

5. Hobbies?

Well, in case the previous answer wasn't a clue, I love to read - I'll read almost anything but at the moment I'm very much into fantasy novels. At the moment, I'm reading Holly Black's Tithe. I also love to write and roleplay. I play a lot of videogames too, especially RPGs.
sabulana: (Default)
Finally come up with a working title for my NaNo fic - 'The Faerie at the Bottom of the Garden' I'll probably try to come up with something better by the end of November. Also, here is a character meme. Because I am bored.

Memetastic )

...I need more characters. I'll need them but at the moment I don't know who they are.

Ventus commentaries and FF13 commentaries coming up later when I can be bothered. <3
sabulana: (...Oh.)
I am so dead today. I got to bed late and was then waking up at 7:30am by my boyfriend phoning to find out if/when he was to come over. I explained about my aunt and uncle not showing up after all and told him he could just come over later if he wanted. He came over about mid-morning and we ended up going for a walk along the beach. <3 It was so hot though, we took our shoes off and went into the water - and my boyfriend promptly turned into a little girl, whining about how it was so cold. XD Personally, I thought it was perfect. Tide was out on the way back but it had started coming in by the time we turned back.

My mother made her Sri Lankan curry when we got back too and we sat down to watch TV after. We got kinda bored of Star Trek Deep Space Nine reruns though so I put on one of my brother's DVDs that he left behind - Strait Jacket. I didn't get very far into it thought before I started falling asleep. I remember something about a hospital, then two guys were talking about how they were killers, then another skip and a woman yelling about someone not giving up and dying and then... ^^;

We were going to go see The Expendables tonight as well but we were both so tired. I still am tired but 7:30pm seems too early for bed. I want to tag, finish off my RP stuff before I go out tomorrow but I'm so tired... so... here's a meme I've yoinked from Arwen instead. <3

Hn... let's see how old people think I am/should be... lol I'm curious. XD

I had more to write but now I can't remember...

Was rudely awoken from a pretty cool dream earlier and now I can't remember much of it, except that Sephiroth, Zack and Cloud were in it.
sabulana: (Barbeque)
Survived my first day at work. XD Augh but getting there was a hassle though. I left early with the intention of getting the early bus - except it was late, which meant I missed my second bus and then in turn, missed the third. -_- Then when I finally got on to the bus that would get me to the industrial estate, I ended up having to walk the long way around to get to it. I got there just in time, all the same, but it was still annoying.

I'm not the only one starting though, which is a bit of a relief. I have someone to talk to when it gets too boring or when we're on a break. ^^; It's pretty dull but it could be worse. And it's work.

Also took me until this morning to get through to the jobcentre to sign off this morning. >.< God, but that was irritating. And then I was put on hold for a while... I ended up signing off about fifteen minutes before I had to leave the house. Not particularly happy about that but at least I finally got through. I get my last payment off them this week, thankfully. I'm pretty much down to my last pennies. What I get from them should last me until I get paid and then... well, we'll see. This isn't going to last too long - I have no real hopes or expectations of getting a permanant job out of this and I'm not sure I would take it even if there was. ^^; Maybe if I didn't need to catch three buses to get there, I would but... I want something a little easier to get to.

Anyway~ Have a meme~ I yoinked it from [ profile] moggy1644 

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

There was a newcomer in the village. New people were always a source of interest and speculation among the Them, but this time Pepper had impressive news.
'She's moved into Jasmine Cottage and she's a witch,' she said. 'I know because Mrs Henderson does the cleaning and she told my mother she gets a witches newspaper. She gets loads of ordinary newspapers, too, but she gets this special witches' one.'
'My father says there's no such thing as witches,' said Wensleydale, who had fair, wavy hair and peered seriously out at life through thick, black rimmed spectacles. It was widely believed  that he had once been christened Jeremy, but no one ever used the name, not even his parents, who called him Youngster.

- From Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It was literally right next to the monitor, from when I last checked details before posting Aziraphale's app at The Wake. XD

I tag... ffff... whoever wants to do it, I guess? XD
sabulana: (himeno not amused)
My iPod finally started syncing at about 2am last night.



I was so tired but I didn't want to stop it so I left the computer on with a few notes taped to it for my mother's benefit. She didn't wake me before she left so I guess all is good.

Man, I am addicted to Nintendogs so very much. XD I swear, my puppy acts just like his namesake! If I ever go silent on AIM, assume I am playing with him. >_> Although... when I wash him, he starts sparkling. ...

And now for a meme~
Meme-tastic~ )

And here's a meme too. <3 Behind a cut because it is long and I love you guys.
