The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...

Percy, don't give up your daughter! Oh, the angst!

Christ, it's been a while since I watched The Scarlet Pimpernel....how fortunate the ABC are replaying series two. I can tape it for Steven. *pauses to squee at Richard E. Grant with his hair powdered white*

God, how hard would it be to crossover Hornblower, SP and Pirates of the Caribbean in a fic?

*contemplates this*

Not hard at all....I'm half tempted to give it a try, actually....I'm looking for an excuse to write Commodore Norrington.

Something to ponder. severa, care to give me a hand on this? I realise it's been ages since we last chatted and I apologise for it but I will definitely try and get onto you next weekend.

Anyway, onto other things, since it's been a while since I properly updated.

I'm going back to Toowoomba tomorrow...I feel like I've wasted two weeks holiday. Bah, I should've done more...I'm soldiering on with two essays that are due on Monday at the moment....it's fairly heavy going. Both are sitting at the 1000-word mark, which means I have roughly collectively 1300 more words to write by Monday. x_x Uy. And here I am, perving on Richard E. Grant.

I am also particularly bitter on account of the fact my sister is visiting from overseas at the moment and I will not be able to see her oweing to the fact that I have to go back tomorrow.

There is a chance that I will not see her at all this year. The trip to Europe, it appears, may not happen. The tenent agreement on my dad's bookshop runs out in a few months and he has to be present to sign the new agreement otherwise he will no longer have a shop. At this point in time the agreement may not be finished before the end of November, which is when we're due to depart.

This is sad news, although Dad has unofficially asked my sister and I whether we'd like to go to Europe on our own. I am not entirely comfortable with the idea, though....I'm not prepared to go anywhere alone just yet, I think. However, if we don't go this year, we will be going next year for certain.

Should we not be going, I'm intending on looking for a paying job. I've gotten a reference from the owner of the gift shop I volunteer at, Val, and I have what I learned while working for dad when he had his newsagency. I'm going to be optimistic about my chances.

Of course, this job may not last if I have to go back to Toowoomba next year, which I would absolutely dread. Steven and I have until the end of October to sort things out. We're going to do things as quickly as possible and do our best to keep our marks up. I want out.....and I'm sure he does too. As soon as possible.

Anyway, I've blathered on long enough. I should get back to work on these essays.

Gaaah, it's Richard E. Grant in a nightshirt! *flail*
