I am so tired.

Suffice it to say that the Himself event was so satisfying and fun, even if it did briefly feel like my high school prom all over again, in that I was kept busy paying attention to other people while the object of my attention was swarmed by cheerleaders. (Or in this case hot Goth girls and fans who were far more intelligent and interesting, and far less busy.) And that when he did get round to the staff, and was uniformly warm and kind even when he was obviously exhausted, I once again made an ass of myself and told him his Heliogabalus was hot, at which point he snorted with laughter and I burned all the way up to my hairline. I am so, so stupid. Honestly. But I enjoyed myself infinitely better than I did at my prom, I can tell you. And I got to run for and bring him his tea, and I paid for it with my own money, which is more than I can say for the rest of the audience! ♥

Here are some of the best highlights. Dave, Roz and Jailbait Batman )

After watching this video 7864524 times, I think we have a new fandom OTP. Neil turned so red! Icons, anyone?

Am slightly flipping out over the amount of work I have to do this week, but serve me right for going into fandom spiral. Really do need to acquire a set of middle gears soon. Planning to go out to the park as it's another lovely day, and work there.

Now, to completely belie this last statement, here are some notes I took on Top Gear for the Transformers special...
cut for lack of coherence, all will be made clear soon enough... )

If anyone actually made sense of that, some fresh ideas would be most welcome.

Courtney, this icon's for you! Also for fans of Neil Gaiman on my flist, but mostly for you.

More icons here.

...and one by me of Siegfried and Odil kissing, just to further the Sekrit Yaoi Agenda:

There are five extra people sleeping at my place right now. It's rather quiet, and I'm a little cold and a little lonely. So I'm reaching out.

Friend of mine held a graduation party in one of the poshest places in town--Cocoon, just off Regent Street. The theme was James Bond. I went as an underage hooker called Kitty Kitty Bang Bang (yes, I made it up, and I'm pretty proud of it ^_^). We had really good sushi, very spicy Chinese and a lovely chocolate cake. Also the best lychee martinis I've ever had, plus apple martinis with cinnamon! Non-alcoholic drinks were just as good: passion fruit and guava. We danced a lot (favorite songs were "Dare" and "Blue Monday"); [ profile] tigerwillow whirled [ profile] aeonfluxus and me round the dance floor; Jen's a much better dancer than me, but I had enormous fun. [ profile] bex_x3d and her lovely boy Ivan were the stars of the dance floor.

We went back to my house afterward, where Jamie complained about Tom, I mopped the floor, Harold fell asleep, Jen had a long talk with Emily in the spare room, and then [ profile] aeonfluxus and I watched A Short Film About John Bolton, which had just arrived this morning. Jen fell asleep in the middle of it, so I watched the interview with Himself and spoilered myself a bit. I don't really mind.

I want to sleep, but there's someone in my bed. So I'll write my mum and watch Himself at the Aladdin instead. Night, all.

Neil Himself's a day before [ profile] languageing's?

*to make a hollow laughing* That would figure, wouldn't it?

Happy birthday, both of you. You have both changed my life in ways you wot not.

Himself in an interview with comedian Lenny Henry, an event which I booked tickets for sometime, oh, TWO DAYS after my birthday.

I went. I had made my friend Stephanie read and watch Neverwhere, which she loved (the book I mean; am not sure what she thinks of the TV series), just so I could invite her, because she's one of my closest friends here. And of course [ profile] bex_x3d had to come, for myriad reasons, not the least of which is that she's a fan of Himself as well. A much more dignified fan than I am (read: fan, not fangirl).

So, it was five pounds a ticket. £5 for one of the best nights of my life.

main event )
the best part!!!!!!!! )

I will never, ever, forget this night for as long as I live.

It's past 5 am and I have finished Anansi Boys.

I was delighted by it, as I am with all of Himself's books; I come away from it utterly adoring all the characters and wanting to give them big hugs, even the evil and terrifying ones. I wonder if this is what it feels like to be Neil Himself. (Somehow I can't stop calling him that; it seems to be his official title.)

I am also endlessly amused with all the new Yahoo! Messenger ads. These two things are nowhere near the same category; this is probably just a sign that I need to go to bed now. But to keep this from being a completely useless post...


I got nothing. This was a completely useless post. Sorry.

Our dear Himself uncommonly tetchy today, but with good reason...

It's been twenty years, and newspaper headlines still oscillate between "Wham! Bam ! Pow! Comics Have Grown Up!" and "OH MY GAAAD THIS COMIC NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN HAS CONTENT NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN IN IT!" articles. Bizarre.

Both acerbic and true, and so, so Neil. (And also, exercisings! Oh, teh hott. I should NOT be lusting after a man old enough to be my father.)

In other news, another meme!
