After the episode of the Wire last night I went to bed and slept for fourteen hours. It was the best night sleep I have had in a really long time.

If anyone wants to donate to Children in Crossfire in honour of me making it through the lengthy 24 hour, 48 post session, they can do so Here

Today me celebrations include going to get travel injections bleh!

I did it!

I blogged for a solid twenty-four hours. Some of it may have been a great deal of jumble but it was fun and all the better because it was in the aid of charity.

Thanks to everyone who has commented at some point during the twenty-four hours and for the words of encouragement. Heck it was something of a group effort to keep me going at times.

Everyone should give this a shot at some point though I would suggest stocking up on snacks and good coffee. I could have done with the good stuff at quite a few points in the night. Coffee mmmm Ianto mmm Jack licking coffee flavoured chocolate off him mmmmmm.

My last little counter on the posts:

I don't get to go and collapse straight after the last post. There is an episode of the Wire to be watched. I will muster what is left of my concentration there is for that or I'll be lost two episodes into series four.

The cat has been sleeping all the time I have been awake and I suspect he is going to wake up when I get ready to be sleep. Right now with his fluffy coat he looks like he is wearing long comfortable pajamas.

The tour trips I want to take were gone over with my parents over dinner, we scrutinised every last detail, including the additional money I would need for the meals that weren't included and spending money. Thankfully we are all satisfied with the price (as we can be) and what the tours offer me.

At least I think it will be. Posting every half an hour really does stretch your brain to come up with something fresh each time

*called away from computer*

*comes back*

oh the excitement, I had to lay the table for dinner. We do have cool placemats - they have different landmarks in Northern Ireland on them. They are even older than I am! The images are done like paintings.

We are getting a gammon roast tonight. A pity gammon is my least favourite roast by a long way.

Knowing that America are going to remake this, it is my sworn duty to get everyone interested in the original before they RUIN it. It is a foregone conclusion that they will. They really suck at anything violent and pscycological when it comes to film making

Be converted!

42nd post has me thinking of the ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’.

A nod to the dolphins and ‘so long and thank you for all the fish’:

I will be taking my towel with me everywhere (when I decide which one I want to take).

My life is still full of riddles. 42 doesn’t seem like the right answer for me but then again neither does pineapple. Hopefully I will find some of the answers while I am travelling or at least begin to tangle the first line of the riddles again.

My tattoo for those who haven't seen it:

This prompted digging through some old folders to see if there were any other cool pictures

and I found this, a gorgeous picture of Austria )

Sorry for killing everyones flists, I promise there is only 8 more entries to come.

It is appropriate that on post 40 I have a total of £40 pledged for Children in Crossfire. I will be adding £10 as well because I bet myself that I couldn’t do this and I want the money coughed up, I am not letting myself off just because we are the same person.

*looks furtively out the window* I have a huge chocolate craving. Not sure I can make it the shop and back in half an hour…

Maybe if I ra….walked

Ah ha I shall use the dad service if I can.

I really wish the weather would make its mind if it was going to rain or not. The clouds have looked ominous for half and hour and I have remained half coiled to spring for the clothes hanging out. Half coiled is a very uncomfortable position.

Could you sue the weather?


I am glad Raikkonen is doing better.

Just when I was getting ready to post this, the rain came on really heavily. I got drenched in two seconds trying to rescue the washing.

The hoover sounds much like a car when it starts up.

I think I may fail epically at surfing but I think I will have fun doing so. As long as I don’t make too embarrassing a duck into the water with legs at all angles and come up spluttering water. It won’t be quite the look I was going for.

This picture is still making me smile after all this time:

The dvds that are currently in the living room and off their shelf to be watched by myself or my parents:

3:10 to Yuma, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Appaloosa, Casino Royale, CATS, Children of Men, The Departed, Frost Nixon, Get Carter, Hollywoodland, The Killing Fields, Kingdom of Heaven, Ronin, National Treasure 2, The Wire (series 3)

There is also a scrapbook on a coffee table that dad has yet to take into his study. I bought for him so he can paste all the letters he has had published in the paper in

On the other coffee table is the faithful scrabble set. Mum and I play it at least three times a week. We usually average a score of 260-275 a piece. I did get 329 the other night which was awesome as was my opening word ‘covens’.

I am posting a couple of minutes early so I can see the lights go off for F1

I’ve just made myself a cup of soup and learnt a wisdom – soup keeps you going longer than eating something like a sandwich. If it sees me through even an hour I will be happy. I have had my first sip and I feel lovely and warm ^^

I’m in the sitting room now for the F1 racing and I am ready for a short rant over some of next season’s regulations. The teams will not be able to refuel during the race next year. This is going to make race watching beyond boring. There are tracks where the skill is in the driver for overtaking and then there are the more technical circuits were positions are lost and gained in the pits. It will be down to tyre wear and everyone’s speeds will be similar. I think the Mercedes Benz has the biggest fuel tank at the minute but even that isn’t big enough for a full race. The shape of the cars will be become bulky and less aerodynamic which will make overtaking even harder.

Random Supernatural thoughts
I hope the angels are well endowed, they have scarily kept bulges from showing
Sam would make a good werewolf because he does great puppydog eyes
Castiel should have a demon who is his exact opposite and they can have occasional hot angry sex.
Dean should wear all leather
Carry on wayward son should be played more often

I found this writing prompt and I thought it would be much more fun to do it from characters’ points of view. These characters are all original and will probably be new to most of you:

Write a list of seven reasons to turn down a marriage proposal

Calli: I’m in love with a demon
Ian: I’m gay
George: I would want to make the proposal
Roland: Vamps aren’t allowed to marry
Jenna: It would get in the way of my career
Saskia: I’ve already made one mistake with a bastard
Jaden: I’m washing my hair

My mum is trying to persuade me to go out of the house. I am resisting, though I am prepared to do voice posts if I must. It would be better if it doesn’t come to that, I don’t think I want a whole pile of people listening in, in the middle of camping shop thing.

I've put all the posts up for rewatch day for the West Wing. It doesn't take long but I was barely thinking and nearly left EPISODE NAME in, instead of changing it to FIVE VOTES DOWN. There is nothing else that I need to do anywhere immediately for modly duties. I love doing modding stuff so I am oddly disappointed that I there is nothing else to do.

On neopets with the great give away I've helped 27 people so far!

May I present three mushroom candles that are looking for a home. They've come all the way from Istanbul:


They can go as a three, a two or a one and you don't have to pay post and packaging anywhere around the world. You could donate the p+p money to Children in Crossfire if you wanted (I'm sticking with the Blogathon-ness)

There are some other goodies I hope to give away as they reappear out of the boxes

Comments will be screened so you can give addresses for posting :)

Anyone who comes anywhere near my bedroom is liable to be swept up with a very large dustpan and brush and deposited into a black bag. I am ransacking my room and decluttering. (word check suggested shuttering and I thought it said sluttering)

When I think of all the things I won't use for a year it is a bit silly and someone else can get some use out of them, even if it is only for recycling. Books seem to be being evicted in the large amounts (sorry books!)

Postcards have escaped the bin, they are going into a scrap book where they are not written on, and into an album where they are written on. They are very grateful ^^

I thoughtless put my Tigger behind Winnie the Pooh. When I went upstairs and saw it again, I burst into some horrified laughter. All I could thing was boing boing boing.

Someone, some crazy someone had told me about the existence of Winnie the Pooh slash years ago and it corrupted teddy bears and their tightly packed stuffing for me.

You don't believe it exists?

Teddybear's Picnic

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

I would love some suggestions on what you like to see me post about or questions or prompts I can do in a post because I've no earthly clue what I am going to post about for the next.....18 or so posts.

Currently I'm hunting for designs for clothes to take with me to get made up.

The last time I saw such a big accident was when Ralph Schumacher fractured bones in his back. This is infinitely more serious. It is ridiculous from a safety point of view that such a small piece of another car could cause so much damage.

I don't blame the track or the teams that was a freaking incident. There was a gravel trap and a tire barrier at the turn he went off. All the safety precautions were in place.

He is stable at the minute but they won't be bringing him out from under the anesthetic until later on today so it is hard to tell how he is really doing.

I really hope he is okay
