When you feel like letting go...

Apparently, sometimes you just need to dance in the rain!

It’s been an… odd couple of months, mental health wise. I’ve been struggling and trying to deny it and back on my meds for three weeks now. I had the nightmare 10 days or so of riding out the waves of side-effects. Obviously, the meds aren’t fully functioning yet but I’m starting to see some admittedly small changes.

This week… this week has been very stressful at work.
Facilities me has been run off her feet sorting out the after effects of a fire in the warehouse.
Finance me has had some pretty epic yelling suppliers. There have been tears and there have been tantrums!

It all came to a head on Thursday afternoon. I snapped at a supplier on the phone, I hid in the loo and cried multiple times. I ate my weight in chocolate a few times over. I was… shall we actively fighting the urge to do something stupid. I mostly achieved it.

Throw in a hellish drive down to London on Friday (it took me 7 hours to drive 170 miles!) and the weather at the weekend and I almost said fuck it and didn’t go.

But I did.

Saturday, in an utterly shocking statement, I went to a Raintown gig. They were playing in Canada Square as part of Nashville meets London. Kicked the whole thing off which was AWESOME. It was slightly damp in the way that I was soaked through my pac-a-mac. I’d hit the point I was completely drenched, couldn’t physically get any wetter.

I just… I let go. I was singing my heart out, crying my eyes out, laughing, and just… yeah dancing in the rain. It was what I needed.

Are You Kidding?

This has to be one of the funniest/strangest/stupidest things I've read in a while...and that's saying something.  Someone wants to know if they can take a cup of coffee on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (a roller coaster) in Magic Kingdom.  Just...I've got no words for that.  Sure it's a pretty gentle roller coaster as far as roller coasters go but.....

The last time I downloaded/watched/screencapped Saving Hope with episode 9 (episode 16 just aired).  I was toying with the idea of downloading 10-16 and starting to play catch up tonight.  But...there's only 2 more episodes to air for the season/series.  So, maybe I should just wait for those two episodes to air and just do it all at once.

In the past I'd done it episode by episode but that changed when I got my new laptop.  When I went to download and install the software I've been using for the downloading, all the security software practically had a stroke and started popping up messages that I'd have to disable stuff, yadda, yadda.  Um...yeah...I'm not going to do that.  I just stuck to using my old laptop to do it but that's a bit of a pain.  Since I'm not using it regularly, it always has something (most often Norton) that has to update RIGHT NOW! when I turn it on which is why I've been putting off downloading the episodes.  I just don't want to deal with that.

So, back to the crux of my problem...do I get the 7 episodes tonight or just wait 2 weeks and get the remaining 9 all at the same time?

I really need to work out a way of getting onto DW into my normal evening schedule. Slot it in between somewhere after doing the dishes because I feel like I'm never getting online to post or to read or to comment. Or even to work on all the fic I'm wanting to write! I'm so used to my normal routine but I like coming online so more than one evening a week would be nice!

Hello Dreamwidth. Hope you've had a nice week since we last spoke. Mine's been very much 'same old, same old' which in a way is good and a way isn't because... well, see above!

I also need to figure out things to talk about. Maybe I'll find one of those '30 day memes' for August or something. I'm sure these things used to be easy but I really have no life and 'I went to work, I did bank stuff, I came home, I cooked, I did housework, I watched TV and went to bed' doesn't exactly make for an interesting blog post, does it? LOL

Ben, the lovely boyfriend, came around this afternoon with a present for me which I'm very excited to play with. He got me a Colouring for Grown-Up Children - Colouring Book Set which he says was a reward for sorting out my paperwork and filing it rather than having it piled up on my kitchen table - that I now have something to use my kitchen table for.
Two colouring books featuring animals, flowers, butterflies and abstract images, and a pack of 36 colouring pencils.

Wisdom of the crowd.

Every time I see the promo for this show, all I can think is "that's almost the exact scene from 2010 where the Aschen are lauding 3/4 of sg1....."

I'm not sure that I really have the words for this.

There's going to be more Stargate. A 10-episode digital series. That's exciting news enough, but...

It's going to be about Catherine Langford's early years.

It's going to be FEMALE-LEAD STARGATE.

Look at that beautiful thumbnail of A WOMAN in front of the Stargate:


FEMALE-LEAD. STARGATE. CATHERINE. LANGFORD.

AND THAT MEANS IT WILL ALSO BE A PERIOD PIECE.

I AM LIVING!!!

ETA: Continuing to add icing to this delicious cake: the director is a woman.
