I wish my nose would STOP with the bleeding. It’s been gushing on and off since yesterday, and it’s getting really annoying now. Could be stress, since things aren’t all happy-happy-joy-joy at the mo. Am attempting to take my mind off this by rambling about the new seasons of Buffy, Angel, and Andromeda at(I’m going to be doing an actual review-thing of the first 4 Buffy S6 eps a bit later, so if you get that, there’s an entry before it as well).
Anyway, I think I’m going to take a few days off from this thing while I get stuff sorted out, thus neatly avoiding the danger of boring public whinging. Gotta get in a nice creative mood for NaNoWriMo, too. Hmm.
Steve H is winding up our (Australian) boss by insisting that Neighbours is a completely accurate representation of the Australian way of life. Heheh.
