So a few observations / comments as I’ve been ever so remiss at updating (unless it was to tell you about hot Vikings, hot Vampires and hot GraveRobbers) (if you missed those posts, you’re missing out!).

There hereby follows a long list of stuff which may or may not interest you but I decided to cut it to avoid annoying people! )

All in all, life is good on balance. You lot might not be the sanest creatures on the planet (sorry [livejournal.com profile] eddy_, our hunt is doomed I fear) but you are all fab. Thanks for being you!

Because he's always very quiet about it and doesn't like a big fuss, and because I'm an annoying girlfriend who doesn't respect his wishes nearly as much as she should;

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICHARD [livejournal.com profile] devalmont

Love you millions baby, looking forward to our nice chinese tonight.

A very brief jaunt online to wish everyone a joyous Summer Solstice (which is, this year, Friday 20th June).

Incidentally, the BBC has a handy little calendar which I'm putting the link to here for future reference as a couple of the dates have a tendancy to move each year.

Hope you're all well - I know I'm being naughty and not seeing much of anyone but Rich is working this weekend so if any of my Cambridge crew are free, let me know and we can meet up for coffee and giggles.

Thanks to everyone who's been in touch either yesterday or today to wish me a happy 28th... I've been inundated! Normally that would be wonderful but it's super specially good as I'm away from home until tomorrow and am really missing my chappy.

I've texted the fab four to announce this evening's plans in Leicester (Debi, Fuzzy, John and Jen) so hope to tell you all tales of drunken debauchery, mid hangover, tomorrow.

Whilst I'm on the subject, Happy Birthday to all fellow Gemini's. There are LOADS of us here in el-jay land (and quite a few more over on Facebook).

A rather belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you firstly.
Secondly, resolutions are something I never keep so I won't be making any.
Thirdly, I have now returned from my countrywide zip about (though I'm sorry for missing pubbage tonight, but [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and I really needed some together time).

This means a further two things; [livejournal.com profile] deborah_c, I am at your disposal this week. Let me know when is good (if you haven't already, which I'm about to check). [livejournal.com profile] gandalf_t_black - tomorrow evening would be favourable. Also, I could really do with catching up with the rest of you too which I'm hoping will happen soon.

In brief, I had two lovely family Christmases and a great catch-up with friends in my home town (some of whom I hadn't seen for literally years) at New Years. I'll try to do a proper write-up soon but I'm off now to return to [livejournal.com profile] devalmont - foodage then dvdness I think.

Oh! And [livejournal.com profile] min_ki - when you read this, if you're in North Carolina make sure you post? I'd love to know how you're getting on (and thanks for talking with me earlier, it really helped).

Happy Valentines dear readers!

Go see if you have a message on the Valentines journal here. Or post one!

[livejournal.com profile] _ebb_

[Level - Public]

And so it arrives (or at least, is almost here!). All about the dreaded V word... )

Looking back over lj and my post last year I think the sentiments still ring true - I hope that you all get the happiness you deserve, whether that's being blissfully single or otherwise.

NB - if there are, as usual, a plethora of crush questionnaires about to hit lj, my advice would be only admit the ones you'd admit to others. They usually sell the information on later. Being a sensible girl who only has room for one wonderful person, this doesn't affect me but just keep it in mind!

First and foremost,

Happy New Year

Here is to a good, peaceful one.

There have been quite a number of changes for me and my loved ones to deal with during 2005. I feel that it was often a bit of an uphill struggle but last night, it felt that we'd reached the sumit all as one and I'm convinced that whilst lots more changes are in store, they're going to be good ones (or at least, affirming ones which help you move on) rather than the chaos and confusion so many of you have known.

It was very difficult being away from [livejournal.com profile] devalmont who I missed terribly at midnight but I think this was the place for me to be. Next time round, wherever he is, I'm by his side as I doubt I could manage again. NYE is traditionally a couples night whereas Christmas is traditionally family. He is both and we didn't manage to be together either time.

Spending Christmas with my parents was very important to me this year and I'm really pleased I did. [livejournal.com profile] min_ki graduates this year and is unlikely to be able to get Christmas off. I've already decided that this year will be spent with [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and basically I think it will be some years before we're all able to be there at the same time again.

I spent my New Years surrounded by some of the most wonderful and amazing people I know and it was great to be together for what I think might be the last such comprehensive gathering. Lots of effort was generally made by people with costumes, the most impressive being [livejournal.com profile] reverend2001 with is Jareth impression. LOVED the wig!

These last 3 years in Brum have been fantastic due to a very special group of people who I miss dearly. It feels as if everyone is at a crossroads and different directions are on the cards for them all. So to everyone who came to HoG for the New Years party, thank you for making it a special last one for me. Next year, wherever [livejournal.com profile] devalmont is, I will be.

All the best for 2006.

Most excellent last night if the severity of the hangover today was anything to go by. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening at Zombified. We were treated to All Gone Dead and Screaming Banshee Aircrew, but better than that was the sheer number of people there. As it was my last night out in Brum whilst I'm still a resident, it was great to be able to say goodbye to so many of you!

Today I have mostly been grinning at gorgeous presents and feeling very loved. At the grand old age of 25, I seem to have gathered around me some very dear and kind people who know me far too well! A magnificent bracelet, a beautiful pendant, a kitten, Lemony Snickett books and the DVD, an Audrey Hepburn purse, a tres gothique mug, Bobble the Blue Owl, Pure Poison, The Red Tree, Screw the Roses - Give me the Thorns, Cinamon Cappucino Coffee, The Doomspell Trilogy, a Blue-Cap Freshly Caught Fairy, a lilac and lace candle votive, a rose scented lilac and lace pomander, a perfectly selected black basque, a funky cyber skirt, wine... but most importantly of all, time with my loved ones.

I've had [livejournal.com profile] devalmont here all week, which has been amazing. He didn't want to leave even though it is only 2 weeks before we live together. As hard as it is to leave Brum, as much as I wish I could take you all with me wherever I am, I know you're there for me. I'm here for you too.

Thank you.

The HoG crew are heading to the Red Lion for libations and food... anyone in the area is welcome to join us!

So. Friday. Well. I arrived two hours late, thanks partly to the buses not getting me to the station for 4:24pm, thanks partly to the technical fault on the train at 5:24pm which caused a cancellation. Despite this, the journey was relatively pleasant. Teaching and what the best methods, my top, Pokemon Ruby on the Gameboy and various other things were discussed during the travel. I was on the receiving end of a MASSIVE and wonderous hug, the usual was purchased from the grill house along with liquid refreshment from Balvs and all was good.

Saturday invovled a mini meep as I was left in bed. I generally planned to join the boys at WT's for the match but failed utterly due to a soak in the bath and makeup requirements. A toddle along to the Mitre (via several shops including a wonderful jewellery stall which was owned by the man who set up the Mercat Moot in 1995! Well he WAS selling silver broom broaches, had to die for Athames and a rather pretty chalice proudly snuggled into his photo album, as he makes lots of pretty silver things) to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] mutualdesire and his Cambridge buddies for lunch. Eventually. At the Pick...something.

Back via my love's workplace and then much debate over going out or not, then much debate over what to wear. We FINALLY arrived at the party ) A rather wonderful and fun chilled out evening ensued, which lead nicely onto Sunday. Thank you to the host and hostess (who looked gorgeous in her ivy).

What happened Sunday... oh yes. Very little. Phoenix Nights series 2 for a little while. Packing disgruntedly. Watching May. Very Sunday! :)

Then back here far earlier than is fair. The train didn't have the decency to be late or anything. No-one interesting on the train. Missed the no. 35 by moments so had to hold out in The Newt for the next one. Just... meh. There was some really sad, miserable news too. Not directly involving me, but friends. You know, it doesn't matter how much I wish I could make it all ok, I know I can't. It's so frustrating!

I'm feeling rather sleepy now so off to bed... gn'ite and I hope your weekend was as wonderful as mine minus the bad bits!

Most importantly, happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] petal1983. We adore you.

So here we are, 2 hours after starting. I now have a long list of those in need of hugs, congratulations, diary dates to note, anger to feel, generally - a week away from you all takes a lot of catching up.

Incidentally - Zim fans. Which one is Killer Hunter Destroying Machine thingy on please?
[Poll #302433]
The Thai Orchid is located mere yards away from the Briar Rose for them that wants to know! I HAD a menu courtesy of the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine which has since gone missing. However, I'll get another one and post further details about food soon.

[Edit - Will HAVE to book, so comment asap if you want to come, and be honest about when and if you can! I shan't be offended if the answer is no from any of you. :-D]

[Edit 2 - as per [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine: For people who haven't seen the place, its absolutely gorgeously laid out, the staff are amazing and the food looks and smells divine!]

[Edit 3 - SNFNGS nights are definately out, as housemates (who run it) would find it difficult to join in and they're the most important ones!]

I no longer work where I did for the pittance I did.

I now work elsewhere. As of Wednesday. Meanwhile, I would like to get exceedingly drunk. Hoorah!

Care to help me? ANYONE?

Well it's always nice to spend time with [livejournal.com profile] the_econoplast (thanks for the wonderful evening!), [livejournal.com profile] baloobas, [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple, [livejournal.com profile] bunnyowen, [livejournal.com profile] metalmikey666, [livejournal.com profile] miss_corinne, [livejournal.com profile] petal1983, [livejournal.com profile] sallamino and [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine. And it was nice to figure out who [livejournal.com profile] corettrobane, [livejournal.com profile] herdivineshadow and [livejournal.com profile] vanishingrad are! Also, the non ljers there - several new faces to me, I apologise but I'm useless with names. Except that there was another Alex who was sweet, and a blonde elegant Emma!

Cracking fire and fireworks, lots of pleasant chats - t'was good. The Catherine Wheel was certainly the most amusing - gravel alight!!!!

AND some exceedingly kind soul has gifted me with a paid account for 2 months. Given conversations last night, and my post, it could be one of several people - whoever it was, thank you. It was exceptionally sweet.

Also, thanks to everyone who's left very thoughtful and supportive messages on my screened post. I can't release any of them as they have numbers on, but you know who you are. It's highly appreciated.
YEY to [livejournal.com profile] devalmont! :-D

I'm remarkably chuffed for several of you at the moment. Or worried about you. And in some cases, both.

CONGRATULATIONS [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine!

( Aug. 17th, 2003 02:37 pm)
Firstly, it's now exactly 4 months since [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine and I started dating.

Secondly, I've now been employed for a week, working for Birmingham Council's Housing Office. This is good as it means I shall be able to afford food etc. Thankfully my wonderful parents sent a nice loan at the start of the week so my bank account isn't looking too dead. AND I also had the pleasure of a wonderful meal on my return from work on Monday evening. In addition, the lovely miss [livejournal.com profile] zevbofb3k made up my packed lunch on Wednesday. She makes CRACKING cheese savoury. (Thank you both so much, it was greatly appreciated)

Thirdly, I'm now the owner of a VERY beautiful purple velvet and satinesque dress. It's totally gorgeous, as is the rather spiffy individual who purchased it for me and surprised me with it on Thursday.

Fourthly (I promise to stop numbering them in a tick) I had a wonderful evening on Thursday at a Brumgoth outing to see Pirates of the Carribean. Mr Depp and Mr Bloom did not disappoint. I shall be going to see it again with a group of girls, rather than sitting between 3 goth bois. I couldn't really justify swooning.... although apparently Lynette was more than happy to sigh and moan in a drooling manner.

Fifthly, I now have the photos that Dave at Decline took of myself and [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine a couple of weeks ago. Indeed, more are on the way - there are plans for another photo shoot very shortly which I'm looking forward to. For now, I hope that this picture of [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine, this picture of us both, and this rather amusing one will keep you going. The tweaked and enhanced versions will appear on Decline shortly.

AND finally, I had another wonderful day yesterday in town with [livejournal.com profile] toxicpixie, [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine, Ian and then later in Scruffy Murphy's with Irish Nathan and Rachael, Jennifer, Kim and Zesty, [livejournal.com profile] zevbofb3k and her Ronan, [livejournal.com profile] borange and other folks who's names currently ellude me.

Also, I've happily found the Brum Vampire MET group. Yey! I'm planning to go along and be a background person tonight, but it's not set in stone. It's totally dependant on what [livejournal.com profile] sapphrine and myself end up doing to celebrate.

So after a rather long night, I'm going to get showered and dressed and I shall speak to you all anon.

Em x
