day 15 → a fanfic

It seems oddly appropriate that today one of my favourite writers has been talking about why he doesn't like fanfiction. I find his point of you fascinating and oddly refreshing. It is very easy to see and appreciate the opposing view to fanfiction if you read over HERE

Back on Track for the Day:

Being Human, George/Mitchell Hold Me Back

Day 14 → A non-fictional book
I had plans to do a lovely little review but I'm 15 and a half hours into my shift and nothing can lift my enthusiasm to do. Safe it say it is a great funny read.


George RR Martin did comment back to me on his blog so minor squee there!

Well traveling I don't have a ready supply of old photos but this photo of my and mirasymphony should have been taken nearly 10 years ago, still we made it to NZ and Hobbiton!

This is the first time`I've been near a graphics tablet since August and I don't think I'd done very much before that anyway. So this is my first proper drawing in a long long time and even long since I went near colouring. It's far from perfect but heck I'm happy to have a start again.

I am going to bring you some of each. The pictures I have put under the cut are of s21 and the Killing Fields WARNING: these are disturbing and sad

Kids in Cambodia spend more of their time working than they do at school, and this picture...yeah I took it but it makes me every time I look at. Look at their facial expressions


I still haven't recovered from seeing these places first hand )

Before we get on to the 30 Day Meme, I have to announce I am in the best mood I've been in, in a week. I've had a ....well crappy mood week since after I went to see Rent (awesome btw!). But lookies:


Over the past two nights have left me bouncing! They've also put me in the mood to act on secret stuff (not telling yet if ever!)

day 04 → your favourite book

This is an easy one for me Lord of the Rings and its prequel The Hobbit have been my favourites since before I could even read them, my poor mum had to read them to me more to me. Since I could read them, I've read them once a year and never tire of them or fail to find something new in them.

In later years Crime and Punishment has stolen right up there as one of my top books ever

and because I feel like it:

favourite book series
As a kid
Chalet School
Tomorrow When the War Began
Enid Blyton
Saddle Club
The Wyrd Musuem
Northern Lights

day 03 → your favourite television program

The problem with this one is that I love so many. With a great deal of thought I've finally picked mine out.

day 02 → your favourite movie

I bet a great deal of people are going to say Lauren it has to be LOTR. Okay when I've worn my copies out at least four times they will be. But here's what stole my heart as a kid:

I've had the thirty day meme bookmarked on my lj for over a month while I've screwed up the determination/energy to do it. Here goes

day 01 → your favourite song
Since my favourite song does have to change from time to time, I'll do my current favourite one. It's the first song I've played on my ipod for the past four months.

[personal profile] mirasymphony arrived safely and we've begun the great tour of NZ. We've seen Hobbiton! And oh yes precious we got to see the construction going on for the Hobbit.

We're in Rotorua now playing with mud, sulphur and Maori.

The sun is shinning here *grin*

So yesterday I warmed you up with the bungy jump while I was secretly still on a very huge adrenalin high. I still am for that matter, I've been grinning away and haven't stopped for anything. It might be because I jumped out of a plane at 14 000 feet. I sky dived! There is nothing like it in the world! The rush of the free fall, the views of the lazy glide into landing with the parachute safely out!

Yes I am never recovering from this one. I feel hugely proud of myself. Between it and the bungy I've had the biggest confidence booster, I feel really in control of myself and ready to face any challenges. So anyway, on to the photos!

Meet the plane that took me up! It just about fitted everyone in (other people were my instructed, camera man, another first timer with his instructor and two people jumping for the fun of it and the pilot of course!)


No I wasn't totally nervous when I saw the size of the plane )

You can't really plan to come to NZ for a long time and not try some of the more extreme stuff. I've conquered my nerves over the past couple of week and tried some out. There are pictures capturing the moments! First off:

The Bungy Jump]
I did this off the Auckland Bridge. It was some experience! First off we had to walk out over the bridge on its underside, attached on to the railings and then there was the nervous wait while I was kitted out and asked if I wanted to do a water touch when I jumped. By the time I got to the edge, I was giggling a lot through nerves but it turned out to be the most spectacular rush!


The Jump as it happened )

It was the most scary thrill seeking, rush of free fall I've ever experienced!
