Wedding Pictures

As most of you know I got married at the end of March. This video a slideshow of shots from the day, set to our first dance song 'Favorite Day' by Wonderful Smith, with shots by and put together by Lorraine Currie of who is amazing. Seriously amazing. I figured some people here might be interested and not see it elsewhere. For those who don't know A and I actually won a competition to get our pictures done by Lorraine, she was with us for 9 hours, made this video (plus a timelapse, which is on the same youtube account) and has given us our photos on disc. I feel so incredibly lucky for this.

As for the wedding, it was a beautiful and happy day and I am so massively happy to be married to the person I love.

    Favorite Day - Wonderful Smith

The 23rd British February FilkCon was wonderful. A bit thank you to the committee, the guests and everyone else there. I had a fabulous time, managed to get to a lot more programming than usual, while also doing some lovely socialising and even getting to the circles a bit more. I felt more settled than I often do at cons. I felt I could just relax and enjoy it and that there was time. This con was the ten year anniversary of my first filkcon and it just reminded me of just how glad I am to be a part of the community. Also, I have severe con crud and so can't be bothered with lj names.

A LONG Con rep behind here and one imageCollapse )Basically, lots of music, lots of friends, barely any of whom I got to talk to even mentioned here and a fabulous weekend. Which I will now take about a week to recover from. Still worth it, though!

Introducing DiaCon Alley

DiaCon Alley
An Unofficial Harry Potter Conference
July 21st - 24th 2011
University of Kent, Canterbury
DiaCon Alley's Amazing Website

I know that not so many HP Fans (with a big f) read this, but there are enough and I think there some people who might be interested and more people who know people who might be. It's a week after the last thing and we thought we should do something to celebrate the end of the series as it was in the UK.

We'll have academica and fannishness and all inbetween, as well as an art show, a film screening and a victory ball!

Please spread the word, we want people to know about this. There is no filking planned (or even 'wizard rock') but if there is interest we can probably arrange something.

I'm aiming to write a life update soon, but I have just been so busy.

P.S. I am chair! how did that happen?

And now for a bit of a moan.

Ow. My back hurts. My legs hurt in a variety of different ways. My side hurts. I keep getting horrible headaches. My arm has a random pain at odd intervals. Ow. And meh. And screaming. I'm tired, and stressed, and there's too damned much to do.

If you need me, I'll be under this rock.

Meme and notice

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want, either good or bad. I promise not to come after you with a spatula, either way.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you.

I am pretty much not reading lj at the moment. I am completely behind and unlikely to catch up and dunno if I'll be reading again. Anything you want me to read for about the past two weeks or in the near future please link it in comments.

Back From Worldcon

Whee, squee and all that jazz. I got back from my first Worldcon yesterday, having had a week of much fun. I'm trying to think of highlights, but as there were many and it's already fuzzy I'm sure to forget stuff.

But basically I had lots and lots of fun. Talked to lots of people including people I already knew, people I only knew periferally, people I'd only heard of and people I knew nothing of in the first place. I attended some great panels, a belly-dancing workshop, a few concerts, a couple of game-show-type-things, a play, a masquerade and probably more. I went to some good parties. I did some scientific experiments. I played ring toss with Hugos.

And I have mentioned no one specifically mainly because I wouldn't mention everyone, so there we go. If I can be bothered I might be more detailed at a later point.

Proof that I really am well an truly insane.

So, I was saying just the other day I haven't written a mad song in over a year (Rat Monsters being the most recent).

Then last night I wrote this. And when singing it I have quite possibly the worst 'country and western' type accent ever sung in. So you know. I tried to sing it without that and it was just scary.

Zombies. Horrifically bad rhyming. Confusion. It's got it all...

Song: BrainsCollapse )
