- My early morning Catullus lecture was officially made of burning win. It basically turned out to be all about fellatio and gay sex in Catullus with an added helping of possible sparrow euphemisms ('passer', Latin for 'sparrow' is theorised to have also been a slang term for penis). Someone actually wrote an academic article entitled 'In Defence of Catullus' Dirty Sparrow'. This knowledge completes me.

- Classics is clearly the porn degree.

- Keeping up the twice-weekly running routine. I feel healthy; disturbing yet awesome.

- Booking flights for summer travel with [personal profile] xaritomene. My summer, it will be awesome ♥

- Got hit by a random Merlin fic idea; Greek mythology involved )

Aaaand that concludes the happiness meme! From here on out it's all whining and depression all the time ;p

Brief PSA: I'm appallingly behind on comments and f-listy things at the moment, so if I haven't replied to you I'm not ignoring you or anything, I'm just a bit swamped right now. I think I'll probably have a chance to catch up tomorrow though (yay, fandom stuff!).

- Attempted valiantly to make golden syrup dumplings today with J (thank you Microwave Association UK and your microwave recipes page) and failed miserably. Fortunately the dumplings (well, they came out more as a sort of... biscuity thing, but let's not nitpick) were still edible. Therefore: sugar high and uncontrollable giggle fits with [livejournal.com profile] fridge_monkey. Good times. Unfortunately this all means that my sink is full of dirty plates left to soak in the hopes that when I wake up they will no longer be crusted with burnt syrup that may as well be welded on for all the good a knife will do in trying to pry it off. Fun times, though ;D

- Got all my work handed in in time for my deadlines today \o/

- Marathoned a few episodes of Arrested Development after the awesomely failtastic dumpling dinner. Gob is my favourite so far, and I'm definitely developing a taste for the show; it's all kinds of ridiculous awesome and everyone in it is stark raving mad in the best possible way.

A couple of things that made my day today:

- Went for an evening run for the first time in a long time, which gave me a nice feeling of well-being (and yay, endorphins!)

- Had an impromptu foam-fight over the washing-up after dinner, because you know, I'm not in any way, shape or form a sensible functioning adult ;p

Other than that I'm just feeling really tired and swamped with work, and there are about 30 tabs open in my browser with fic and posts that I don't have time to read, so, short post is short. Now, sleep, that would be a good idea...

[livejournal.com profile] alichay tagged me for the happiness meme, so here we are:

1. Post about something that made you happy today, even if it's just a small thing.

2. Do this every day for eight days.
3. Tag eight of your friends to do the same.

Things wot are making me happy today:
~ Going out for dinner later for a friend's birthday, so I can look forward to good food! Food that isn't microwaved rice! Restaurant food!
~ Planning to watch the BAFTAs on BBC iplayer in order to belatedly stalk Richard Armitage, for he is sexy.
~ No more deadlines until Saturday after handing in all of my work today and yesterday! Yay for strangely skewed timetables \o/
~ The aforementioned lack of deadlines means time to actually get some creative writing done ♥

And on that note, have another meme:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Feel free to reply to the drabble one here or at LJ; I probably won't get many requests over here, but if the slots do fill up I can handle twenty drabbles ;D
I'm not tagging for either meme, so snag them or not as you desire. Also, [livejournal.com profile] shuralove - I haven't forgotten about your fic, and now I should have some time around to think of something properly ♥
02 03 09 - microfic meme
phantomjam: (Merlin/Arthur - red)
*jumps merrily on the bandwagon* Write 10 different categories of fic, each in 10 words or less.

All Merlin-related; various pairings )


In other news I'm (slowly) working on fic for the pay it forward meme and I should hopefully have something to post for tomorrow. Also I decided to treat myself to a paid account for my birthday. This may or may not have been motivated largely by my desire for moar pretty icons ;p
