Oh god oh god it's almost April.

I know that it shouldn't astonish me when the months move faster than most old people. I think April/ beginning of May is going to be really busy, for me atleast. I mean nothing is really gonna happen during the week days, I mean my life isnt that interesting.

Before I talk about that showery month that is April, I wanna say I miss the laptop, on friday it broke, when it was plugged in it wouldn't charge, it wouldnt register that it was plugged in, this all happened after JOhns friend Karl turned it upside down to look at the model and when i went to plug it back in it wouldnt work so ofc I blame him, even though it could have happened any time, but he/his dad is fixing it, but apparently it takes 4 hours to get to the bit that needs fixing. So I'll probably, hopefully get it back tomorrow/ really late this evening.
On another note I hate it when the clocks go back/forward it screws with the whole sleep thing becuase last nigth I went to bed at the ususal time of 11 and my brain was like "WTF its only 10 why are you trying to sleep your not sleepy. "

I guess I am going to count the 31st of MArch as the beginning of all this. It's a LRP day with BC branch wheere a group of players called the Einherjar are going to go to their home land and I think they are gonna go find thier people who they thought were dead. I don't know much else about this day as I am going to be monstering it all day. So that will be fun and tiring as hell. Then the day after is Bristol which will also be a good day, it will also be the 1st of April which might mean there might be a little silliness but most of the refs at Bristol are sorta serious and they can sometimes go out to kill everyone and everything thing in exsistance, I'm kidding their all lovely (sidebar: I want the laptop back I hate this keyboard), I hope its warm but not too warm as I will bake and die if I have to wear my padding as it's made from fur, on saturday I got to wear a gorget gambason which keeps the chain off the shoulders, it was heavenly and it didnt bake me to death so Thank you Hamish twas useful. I am hoping that my gambason isnt as warm as my fur else I will be a cooked turkey, but a comfortable cooked turkey. I'd ask Peat how warm is gets in his but his is much much thicker than mine, and he doesnt need to wear his to protect himself from heavy chain as he doesn't wear chain....I think he would just crumple :P I'm hopefully kidding...I don't have an easy time with it but it's worth the pain, oh how I love butchers chain.

The next week....Is a BC weekend, and we will be economising this trip, so it means having very little food as we will have to feed the car, and I am not going to Taunton as it would be far to expensive, I think we would be able to pay for the fuel down there and back and that would be it, so no eating or drinking and thats no fun so I am going for the more money easy option as it's an hours drive compared to an almost 2 hour drive.  On the sunday we probably won't be doing anything, as we will be saving as the first week of April is when Johns boss isnt working so John misses out on £300. It would be nice to go to Guilford but there might be a slight chance of deadness, which is bad. Oh I also have a In Character wedding to orginise, not mine, it's Dame Emilia's wedding to Kal, they're going to get married at Springfest so I have loads a time....:S I'm sure it will be fine. Though I think Amelia's getting sick of all this love thats around. (God metal mantle peices to the back of the skulls really hurt)

The next weekend is a little fuzzy, becuase for there is a 0.01% that I might be going to a concert in London. The other 99.9% is that we will be New DAwning and that Bath.(we just found a big bee in the bathroom and now I feel all weird as I do when I find bugs I hate, I just get scratchy.)

The weekend after that is my 20th Birthday so I will be going to BC in Cannock so I will be with my friends, again I wanna go to Guilford afterwards but thats a long way to drive. So that will be a great weekend.

The weekend after that is a mystery on the LRP front. But I will be  going to see the Avengers! so yee...

Then after that it's Springfest!! Where there will be epicness and fun and wine and I get to see all my friends and maybe celebrate my birthday in a "*hug* happy bithday" Kinda way with friends that I wouldnt have seen on the birthday weekend. So yeah lots and lots of fun and froth to be had and I will be so sad when its all over.

The weekend, Dry the River and everything else in between.

So as I wanted its Friday, they day before the weekend and the day before the BC special and banquet, which I am really excited about but like 10% of me is nervous becuase there is this beg ritual and it could go wrong and I have a componant which is the last in existance and if we mess it up there is no second try. (Ahh train of thought just came flying off the tracks) Where was I. Oh  yeah and I think the other mission is basically getting two weystones back in thier rightful place and the CC will be running something in there to occupy the Demonologists in the party....y'know tea with the emporer and all that jazz :D. And I am nervous about the banquet becuase even though my skirt is short I will be wearing shorts and its not like i will be showing off massive amounts of breast, even if I could I probably wouldn't. My character has also been asked to dance and I stupidly said yes (I think I talked about this in the last blog) but I am basically as graceful and co ordinated as a roller skating giraffe....But I should be slightly drunk so I wont be as embarressed, not until I remember it all the day after. (Y) So yeah I get to see my friends and have lots of fun and good food and good RPing fun. Also just as a side note the CC needs to stop Eli said on facespace....Man up Carrington! :) And we mean this in the nicest way possible sweety.

Next topic is about a small(now big) London based folk/rock band called Dry the River which through twitter and my suseptability to watch the things my friends post I watched Chambers and Valves and I thought it was amazing.(and now we rejoin you on Sunday*) There is a skeleton in the video that is played by the lead Peter, and he kinda looks like the Peat I know when he was painted up as a zommer....I guess thier only similarities are they looks kinda the same when really pale and they're both really skinny and tall, oh and attractive as I found out when I saw then without thier C&V make up on, they're all attractive young men....Scott has an impressive beard... I have also started listening to all thier other songs and I really want thier album so I will ask for it for my birthday. Alot of thier videos are acoustic/live sets so atleast I know they'll sound good live if I ever go to another concert ever again.

So yes the weekend....(Saturday) It was great I really loved saturday, the mission was amazing even though I have hurt myself, it was the chainmail and a heavy leather back pack and wearing that until like half three in the so owie. So I wussed out of monstering and took pictures. I just loved seeing all my friends, most of the country bar the actual branch were there before the BC lot which was good. When it was time for 'lunch' I had a good chat with Peat about Dry the River as I made him a cuppa outta my thermas, which by the way, Peat if it tasted like socky tea I apologies, it was the thermas not the tea, but you were very polite in drinking it all so thanks. mine however tasted like sock as I was drinking from the thermas cup but by the time it was 3:30 I didnt care really. He also managed to pause our chat to go off with Olly and Jamie to talk about nasty evil things that could see but didn't hear as the more tired I get the more deaf I get apparently, as proved in the banquet when I couldn't hear much of anything, though when it was Peat he's just naturally quiet and the others I was sat with (Olly, Nile, Tom and Charlie) becuase the room was loud...mostly bc of derians underwear which was an eye sore and a half. Oh I will have to think of some puns to throw around the table if I get to sit with the guys again... By the end of the banquet I was in fits of laughter, there was this fertility idol that I think was a prop that Peat used in his little side dish mission and its just the most ugly thing and we hid it in a wall of paper but then he would pick it yp and make it do stupid things and I almost cried laughing, Olly and Jebbo were not making it any better. Then we had to leave so that sucked. But I did get lots of hugs and that made me feel better about the impending suck becuase it was alot of awesome. Not to offend my life but I don't think that level of awesome will be achieved again until Springfest which isnt until May :( Booo.

So this was long so I will love you and leaf you all as the different branches of the preverbial family tree that you are. Yes I know I'm awful with puns.

*I started writing on friday and got interupted by DnD so I have complied random thoughrt strings and made a pretty line....

Oh another thing, yes I did wear silly shoes and my feet did hurt.. but it's the back that hurts today so the silly but really really nice shoes win! However I will be wearing sensible shoes to Springfest.
 I was going to say something else but the giant squid of fneh has walked off with brain.

It's March....already

So its the first week in March, so it's inching towards my birthday in April....I'll be 20....god...

It's been a fun weekend. Well I say weekend I mean Sunday....I don't know what I did Saturday I think I blanked it like I do most days. OH! I started 750 words on You write a minimum of 750 words per day on anything, its unfiltered and stuff, but no one can read it which is great (I think).

Sunday at Bristol was fun, I got to play a national plot a circus tent of a dress. That was fun to play, though for something that is Vleyborian and doesnt like fighters the fighters were crowding me alot.
There was also an almost tpk....but thats all that will be said as I don't know the full extent of the events that happened but I am sure that in due time everything will sort itself out and most of the society will hear about it one way or the other.
My mission was fun, I finally got to adventure with my master which was fun, we spent most of the the mission either talking about the coming weekend or purging things.
Being an alchemist is so fun, you get so many role playing oppourtunities. And most of the guild are really great people. I also get to tell three master alchemists what to do at  the weekend becuase I have the plot for what we are doing on the BC banquet special. The refs made some pretty cool physreps. My character is having the time of her life, she has some really great friends. She gets rose flavoured alchemy and asked to dance, I don't dance well thats a lie, I danced at both proms but that was group dancing, no one noticed you, this will be proper boy/girl dancing where people will be dancing and other people might be watching....So I have managed to hopefully get others to dance with me so I don't draw attention to me awful skills when it comes to dance. Atleast the person I am dancing with can dance so bonus.
 I will also have to remembet that in a corset I cannot laugh that much/that hard as corsets don't allow you to breath. I am currently swooning over a corset  It's so pretty even though its not the shade or colour that I usually wear. But it is cheaper than the steel boned one I fell in love with which was like £60. So I might ask for this one and wear it to the banquet at springfest. I don't quiet know what is going on but yay Springfest. I get to see my friends and have fun all weekend and celebrate my birthday a second time possibly.....I will also have a drink for my big brother becuase he will be 29 on the 4th. It's a little odd that I can see him as 29 but the people I know that are of that age or just abouts, I keep thinking theyre like 25, which is great for them....Damn I have to join the 20's club....

I've just realised this 'red' nail polish named Amaretto is actually kinda pink, but hey no ones going to be looking at me nails on banquet day. Though the funny thing is they're chip restistant....yeah right... I also need to buy some cheap hairspray...not to spray on my hair but to spray on my's to make sure the tattoo I have IC stays there.
