Wow, I've been away so long LJ got a new look while I was gone...

Have been faffing around on Tumblr and the SRS ARTZ blog when I am online, but I've mostly not been online. Had 2 holidays in a row and got into a scheduling snafu with the second one, which set me back at work while also putting me in disgrace with my normally very sweet new boss from Basingstoke.

Other things that have happened: we all thought my cousin had a medical problem so she came home from the find out she was pregnant. WOOHOO! Also I got to spend time with my baby nephew, who is amazing. ♥ ♥ ♥ I'm not normally so heteronormative, but I do really love this kid.

And the Unscrupulous Workplace has introduced biometric logins, which means you log in with.........your FINGERPRINT. As a true-blue SF fan I should be excited about this Bond-like development, but as, well, a true-blue SF fan, visions of Orwell and Doctorow dystopias dance in my head at the idea. I haven't yet handed in (as it were) my prints, which I foresee will get me in MORE trouble, but I just find it so Brazil. Gah.

In other news, tarsiers are really tiny, as are baby ocelots, and the Brahminy kite, or sea-eagle, is my new second-favourite bird. Squee!

Hey all, Happy New Year! Hope your Christmases were as full of food, presents and familial joy as possible.

After some hairy moments, it seems I am indeed returning to London for my very last term. In addition will get to live all by my ownsie, which has been my fondest wish but also means I will miss my cousin a lot. Thinking of casting out for a roomie if I can't find a single flat in time.

Leaving on the 9th from Manila, but am trying to get a day or two there so I can see friends and do shopping--didn't get anything good in Chiang Mai as it's more of a retreat and not a retail paradise like Bangkok. The vacation itself was really lovely; must get the pics from my aunts and cousins as I didn't bring a camera of my own.

I have been rereading all my aunt's Diana Gabaldon books while I'm in Bacolod--[ profile] angelthorn and [ profile] lyrakristine, much much better than Judith Krantz, I promise! Hot Scotsmen, witchcraft and time travel, gay British nobility...and sex that's not only genuinely sexy, but actually believable. Plus funny on purpose. I'm also reading Crime and Punishment, Kawabata's First Snow on Fuji and The Janissary Tree, but I admit the Gabaldon books are really an addiction, and have been for years.

Er, anyway, now that I've got my grandmother's computer working, there will be more posts. Expect pics next :)

My uncle went home today.

I really didn't mind having him around. With him here, the flat had a nicer atmosphere and I could keep the boys (and myself!) on point about chores. Also, I really felt like he ought to be living here.

Maybe I'm not as ready for independence as I thought.

We now have wireless internet at home! To celebrate, I have made new icons--my favorite is this one of Cellini's Perseus.

Tomorrow am off with family to visit Stonehenge & Bath. ^_^
