Slowly but inexorably, I seem to be falling off the grid. I don't want to, particularly, but it's like I don't have any say in the matter.

I was pretty ill from Dec with various things, one of which ended me up in hospital at the end of Feb. I still don't feel I've recovered properly from all of that. Meanwhile, although my kidney disease is still at usual levels (by dint of stringent management), something else is happening which the kidney consultant can't explain, so I have a referral to someone else. Appointment date yet to be determined.

Because of/as well as all this, I find I no longer have the emotional energy, let alone the physical, to engage. A lot of stuff is at the bottom of a deep well called I-Can't-Be-Bothered, and I have no inclination to pull it up. Fandom is down there, and I don't see it surfacing in the near future.

I will be pulling out of the Pros Big Bang - I have completely lost the mojo to write for the Lads. The TS Big Bang will probably go the same way. I am still reading TS fic when I can, and enjoying, and in fact it provides a good deal of relaxation. But Pros - nah. How can that be? Anyway, that's how it is.

If I write anything at all in the near future, it will have to be outside the strictures of a challenge deadline. Though I intend to continue taking part in the TS Icontest on LJ, because it is so much fun (and more people should do it!).

Some of you may have already noticed I haven't been much of a presence around here recently. I still skim LJ and DW (when I remember) but replying to posts seems in general to take too much energy. This is going to continue, I feel. No offence, just how it is.

Much love to everyone. I hope the situation may change in due course.

I felt compelled to share this, as it is so extraordinary.

Why the hell those people are in that boat, though... Sheesh!!!

To those who have been around in TS far longer than I, and recall the Moonridge zoo sponsorship, a question:

Reading the latest Big Bear zoo newsletter and then the website itself, I see there is a wolf called Blair (who weighs 130lbs!) born in 2009, and a female Mountain Lion called Cascade, who arrived as a cub in 2002.

I'm guessing the TS contingent had a hand in naming those animals?

Now, Day 4 was all about interacting, which I did enough of on Day 1, thanks.

So, on with the recs! Read more... )

Okay, so I'm going to have a go at this, too, and like Snycock said, maybe it will help me get my head around doing things on DW.

Ah, but what a task to start with!!! Noooo!!!! We have to self-rec and self-reccing just feels so *wrong*. :(
Plus I haven't been producing fanfic for long, so I don't have a lot to offer. But... here goes:

OMG! That was loooong!;)

Encouraged by Kernel's success at this, I've just used the importing tool to copy everything over from LJ. It took about an hour but it seems to have worked. Am quite impressed!

Okay, so I'm trying out Dreamwidth as it seems to be the thing to do, right now.

And I love this picture anyway, and feel it could be a motto for the new year. :)

(Though I gotta say, I'm already missing the LJ ability to direct-link to laptop albums...)

I had an overwhelming urge to write this, the moment I saw a certain paragraph in the Guardian obit for dear Leonard Cohen.

I hope it offends no one by involving him with TS. I hope it doesn't offend him either!

Thank you, Leonard. For everything.

unbelievable2: (TS always)

Hugs, my dear. A whole year? Amazing.

This is courtesy of the lovely [livejournal.com profile] rona who posted it at Sentinel Chat last night. It is extraordinarily well done, I think.
I mean, I can't even *begin* to contemplate the skill in editing like this... :0

... "Pet Shop Boys Turn the Royal Opera House into a Dance Hall" :))

A four-day residency, and I went to two nights. Unbeatable fun, with lasers, amazing headgear, a host of dancing jellybabies, and the whole audience dancing all night. My feet by the end of Saturday night were in a World of Pain, but it was worth it (which of course is actually a cue for a Pets song... )

Just a few pics... )
In other news, today is my 28th wedding anniversary. Scary, huh? ;)

I've not had access to the laptop to do a snazzy birthday card, but many happy returns in any case to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] londonronnie ! Hope you've had/are having a great day!

Some here may already know that one of my great loves is (are?) Manic Street Preachers. And this year is the 20th anniversary of an album that means so much to me - "Everything Must Go".
