This morning I awoke tired and grumpy and headachey. But, I had post! A BOX!

And in the box was The Best Hat Ever!!

It even came packaged in straw with the letter from Jayne's mum!
Obviously I had to try it on and take photos of self doing so, at which point I discovered this hat also has a Magical Power -

That hat makes you look like an idiot )

Cheered me up no end! So HUGE HUGE thanks and many voles to [livejournal.com profile] being_here for finding and sending it!

Black market beagles, purveyors of some very shiny firefly related stuff are closing down on friday, so this is your last chance to get something from them.
Their little damn heros designs are great, so if you want some, now would be the time!
Also, an "I'll be in my bunk t-shirt". yay!

Hmm. Not entirely sure how, after sleeping 13hrs straight last night, I can STILL be knackered and brane dead. I guess that is just the measure of a weekend Well Spent ;)

I was going to do a detailed post of the weekend, but [livejournal.com profile] thipe and [livejournal.com profile] being_here have covered it quite well, via haiku and photos respectively. Also my memory of a fair bit of it is somewhat vague, for some reason...
Highlights tho included

FATE leading us to SCRUMPY and the HOFF
Shatner dvd for 97p!
Lovely chinese food with wine, wine and more wine (even if they wouldn't let me get just one more bottle ;p).
Lovely lovely Mind Wiping Cider very kindly proved by Sojan
Strawberry flavoured lesbian kisses (and I don't even like strawberries!)
Discovering [livejournal.com profile] being_here cackles even better than I do ;p
[livejournal.com profile] kyrptykfysh going Mouse Hunting with a wrench
[livejournal.com profile] malvino going Mouse Hunting with a bit of fruit from the punch
Malvino and Kryptykfysh getting their respective GUNS out
The expression on Malvino's face when, in lifting a chair to demonstrate said guns, the seat fell off and hit him on the head.
Pretty much everything else too ;)

Lowlights? If they can be called that ;p
The SCRUMPY turning out to be cider vinegar (tho it did work very well in the punch!)
So. Much. Pain. on Saturday morning
Mental images of Hoff/Shat Lesbian Sex. BAD THIPE, BAD!
Weatherspoons' bizarre total inability to make edible toast
The fact that everyone lives too far away to do it all more often. Move to Ireland damn it! All of you!

Clearing out old emails, I found this link to an excellent firefly vid, sent to me aaaages ago by teh lovely [livejournal.com profile] anavrinny.

Good stuff ;)

(And no, this isn't just an excuse to use lovely new Jayne-Arms icon. Much.)

The very fine people who brought us the impressive Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster have now done a lego Serenity

A lego Serenity that LIGHTS UP

And that's not all, they've also made a smaller version that you can make at home! If you're some kind of lego nut :p but still!

Actually I think I want all of them. WAAAAAAAASH *sniffs*

Driving home in the snow this evening, Johnny Cash still in teh cd, it occured to me that 'A Boy Named Sue' could have been written about Jayne ;p
Would explain a lot about him too ;)

My daddy left home when I was three
And he didn't leave much to Ma and me
Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze.
Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
But the meanest thing that he ever did
Was before he left, he went and named me 'Sue.'

if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough )

Can't wait for the film. Tho don't recall Joaqin Phoenix having a particularly deep voice. Gotta get the voice right!

Today has been vaguely productive. Paid the electricity bill (on time for once too), renewed the company insurance, got paid too (yay) and got to the bank. Went to forbidden planet to see if they'd got any more of the Firefly comics in, but they're still all sold out. They did have Neil Gaiman's 1602 tho, which was a nice bonus. They had Anansi Boys too, which threw me into a bit of a quandry. Naturally I want it NOW but I'm also thinking of going to the dublin signing so I should probably wait til then.
Maybe. I might go buy Thud instead to keep myself happy.

Also ordered 2 more Sandman and the serenity novelisation & companion off Amazon. No joy with the comics there either, Ebay may be the last resort. Of course then there's the whole cover issue. I don't *think* I'm obsessed quite enough to buy the 3 versions of each, but Mal or Jayne cover? Decisions are so hard. Not sure who the other cover of the 1st one is, but if it's Wash I'm really going to be stuck. Damn these cunning marketing ploys!

Ziggy is still going well, rode indoors last night for the first time and she behaved much better than I expected. She went into the corners (mostly) and even cantered a full lap on each rein, tho that did take a bit of working up to. No bucks either, which was a surprise! Had a few jumps too, but my timing is so off, I really need to sort out a lesson with Suzie to work on that before I tackle anything over about 2ft. Confidence may also be an issue there ;p
Looking back to this time last year (thanks to memes of all things), we're much further along with her than I'd realised. This time last year we'd only *started* canter work and hadn't even got to jumping, so I'm well pleased and can even relax a bit. Hmm we? I mean me, since it has been just me this time round. Yay for me *pats self on back*. I reckon I've earned that!
She comes in from the field at the weekend, which means no more trekking round the field and through the stream every night to find her, but on the downside means mucking out. Still, it tones the upper arms nicely. Silver linings and all that ;)

ps the mood icon thingy (what DO you call those things) for accomplished just cracked me up. You go murderous goth icon girl!

2 Memes!

Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind post a link to your entries on this day exactly six months ago, nine months ago, a year ago, and two years ago. If there was no entry on that day, link the closest date.
meme 1 )

And I KNOW I said no more firefly, but its a MEME, so that doesn't count, right?
when you see this on you FList, quote some "Firefly".

I'll be in my bunk )

Whee new Jayne Icon. OMG JAYNE HAT. All he's missing is Vera.

I will stop squeeing over Serenity & Firefly now for a bit, before I put you all off entirely; this is just to say that it doesn't open this weekend, it's NEXT weekend. Been reading to many US message boards and stuff. D'oh.

However, the sci-fi channel are running a 'firefly weekend' this weekend, showing all episodes back to back on sat & sunday afternoons, starting at lunchtime on saturday, so if you have cable/digital, you have no excuse :p
hellison: (Default)
Just one more. Honest. (for now)

For those of you wandering what the hell this firefly thing is all about, I found a very nifty lil photo essay/ep guide to give you a taster - http://www.livejournal.com/users/liminalliz/544525.html
Look at all the pretty!

Now go and buy/borrow/steal the dvds. Then go see Serenity when its out. All of you!
