ALWAYS TOO LATE.

(Lal uses self-deprecation. It's super effective?)

So I'm just getting over being mysteriously ill for the last few days, which meant among other things that I didn't get to go to a ceilidh and I didn't get to eat the chocolate and apple cake that I made. I am no longer nauseuous all of the time and I'm wearing actual clothes so hurrah for small victories? I am still stupidly knackered to the point where I have long stretches where I don't have the energy to read which never happens.

Anyway, with that cheery introduction, hello there new friends! I'm laliandra, usually shorted to Lal and then lengthened again to Lalface, Lallio, Lalafly, Lallipop, Laleth etcetcetc. If you would like fic please head thisaway, for some 140 character conversations go here and should you desire pretty things made by other people with lengthy and ridiculous tags this should fulfil all your needs. Oh tumblr, so strange, so compelling.

And hello old friends, hopefully y'all knew that already. I STILL LOVE YOU. Come, make in jokes with me in the comments.

My default icon is actually the text version of a tee-shirt slogan I came up with for a competition for [livejournal.com profile] sarahtales to design a tee shirt for one of the characters in her The Demon's Lexicon series, so now Mae owns one and so can you!

I like tags, baking, talking about fictional people, talking about dead people, talking about languages, talking about fiction languages, talking about dead languages, callbacks/repeated motifs, and being a hypocrite about run on sentences. I really like it when people throw things to/at one another. So The Social Network is pretty much like porn to me.

I have cunningly distracted people from noticing that I put this in every fic I've ever written, possibly with shiny airships and, er, banter.

I am currently flitting about reading in all kinds of fandoms, mostly because I am super easy to incept into something new. Just give me links and I'm probably yours for life.

Anyway, let's all get to know each other and be frans!

Apparently I'm writing this now, also.

But think, Rory, what did you say to me earlier?
Rory: Er. The mole man guy is giving me the creeps.
Doctor: Well, yes, that, think it's the fingerless gloves. Always suspicious indoors. But, yes, no, the other thing. About not being scared because of all the things you've seen, you've done.
Rory: *frowns* Yes?

I have no idea who to blame for this, but if anyone mentions #IblameLal just ignore them.

ah, but the sweet thing about Pokemon is that in another few years there will be another generation of incomprehensible Pokemon to make obscure references to.

Mysterious illness is quite alarming! D: as is the energy not to read. I feel that sometimes, where I just lie on the couch and think hmm, my eyelashes are quite heavy. I wonder if I trim them I will feel more awake? (The answer is no).

ALSO I AM EXCITED TO READ YOUR BIG BANG. am waiting for the right stretch of time where I can ignore all looming business and just devour it.

I miss my gameboy colour :( I was very charmed by about four people on my flist making some variation on the "A wild post appeared!" subject line.

It has not been fun! I thought I was just getting a cold and then BAM my whole body engaged in a constant battle not to throw up :( I have just been watching a lot of nonsense on youtube and keeping fic open in tabs for when I have the mental capacity for it. (stupid eyelashes)

:D:D:D I hope you will enjoy! Extra because I'm pretty sure that yours was the first TSN fic that I read...

Hi, Lalface. I have no time to send you many in-jokes, so I will just leave an I love you and a bunch of waffle hearts. <#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#<#



ETA: That sounded very bitchy and pretentious. "I HAVE NO TIME FOR YOU." But I meant to say "I have no time because work is kicking my ass and time is not my friend today." "But I love you a lot and here are a bunch of waffle hearts." ♥

Depends. On if you're a bingo caller and find yourself terrified you're going to start saying numbers to the tune of Couldn't Stand My Wife.

(Or if you walk around a castle humming Born 2 Rule on a loop and when you read a thing that says that Richard III once had possession of said castle switch over to his song instead.)

I think my coworkers think I have an addiction. They're probably right.

Though currently my phone only has Mozart & Beethoven from the Prom as the background. (Admittedly this is entirely because I can't find the cable to connect it to the computer. :D)

(Ooh very nice!)

Eesh I can imagine that would be hard! Although I'm sure they would love it - learn about kings whilst you play bingo! :D Excellent!

I completely know what you mean though, I was in Buckingham Palace the other week and they kept saying 'George IV the Regent King' and I had to bite my lip to stop from adding 'which means he was just standing in!' and then I kept thinking 'great palaces I did design, Buckingham was one of mine' and basically getting annoyed with my brain because it would not stop going around and around in my head. There are worse songs to get stuck on though!

It's possible. But there is no shame in it, it's an addiction to be embraced! And I hope you find the cable soon ;) (Although that is an awesome background!)

So hard! I keep getting all paranoid! And then other night I'm running the jetsort machine and going 'William, William, Henry, Stephen, Henry, Richard, John, OI!' and getting funny looks.

So ridiculously catchy. Gods only know what the next series is going to get stuck in my head. (There have been multiple occasions where I've woken up thinking stay calmer if you want to harm a llama call a llama farmer STOP SINGING BRAIN.)

Sorry, Lalface, for cluttering up your inbox with HH-related flailing. :D

(I have a tendency just to flick my phone on to look at it for a bit. Thanks, HH, for feeding my latent Mozart/Beethoven urges with Baynton & Willbond. Who are clearly involved in the greatest on-running game of gay chicken ever.)

Laaaaal do we have any in-jokes? I am TOO TIRED I am so tired oh my god exhausting day. But awesome day because Arthur Darvill HE WAS EVEN CLOSER TO ME THAN LAST TIME LAL AND HE SPAT ON ME ACCIDENTALLY BUT I DIDN'T MIND WHICH SOUNDS CREEPY BUT YEAH. XD I lkove him. (HAHAHA THERE IS AN IN-JOKE FOR YOU! I lkove you more though. Which is saying a lot because I spent most of Faustus just watching him like a creeper thinking how sexy his face/neck/hands were. Anyway.) I also got a carrot thrown on my head so it was a successful trip all around for getting abused by the cast!

I also have to tell you that I have both read and adored your TSN Big Bang, because it was sensational. But I haven't commented yet because I read it when I was in my faily 'cannot talk to people oh god communication D:' place and now I still haven't because I FAIL. But I promise to comment soon. If you are lucky I might even be drunk ;) (Except not because I feel I should not inflict ANY MORE drunkeness upon your poor comments section, terrifying off regular people who just want to tell you how awesome you are in a regular non-crazy-alcoholic sort of way.)

SO BASICALLY I LKOVE YOU AND I LKOVE ARTHUR DARVILL AND HIS FACE AND I HOPE YOU ARE GOOD

That sounds amazing and I love the Globe so much. SO CLOSE. We saw an all male production of Twelfth Night there and my friend asked me which one had been the girl and I answered and the actor looked right up at me.

HE IS SO PRETTY. THE PRETTY ONE.

:D yay I am so pleased that you liked, eeeeeee. That is okay, you can totally take your time with commenting and may also be the drunken commenting if you wish because I lkove your drunk commenting.

Haha you are right we have ALL OF THE IN-JOKES. I was very tired last night! It was gorgeous, so so gorgeous. I should post about it properly. (And like...everything else I have done for the past month oh my god I fail so hard at actually keeping a journal.) And oooh that sounds awesome! I don't know why I've never actually been before, it was the most gorgeous place and such a good play. I don't know what I expected but it had such amazing production values with costumes and special effects (ARTHUR DARVILL LOOKING ALL SEXY AND MENACING IN A CLOAK AND TIGHTS THREE FEET AWAY CRADLING A HANDFUL OF FIRE. OH GOD I WILL NEVER RECOVER FROM THIS)

SO SO PRETTY. AND I CONVERTED MY FRIEND GRACE WHO CAME WITH ME AS WELL :D SHE SAID HE WAS DORKY AND UNATTRACTIVE ON DOCTOR WHO (psssht silly girl) BUT THEN WE FLAILED ABOUT HIS HOTNESS SITTING ON THE SOUTHBANK DRINKING STARBUCKS. IT WAS AWESOME.

Hahaha YOU ARE TOO KIND. And I am a rubbish friend and I'm sorry but I will try and do better. I WILL EVEN NOBLY GET DRUNK FOR YOU. ALTHOUGH IT IS HARD AND NOT SOMETHING I WOULD USUALLY DO OH wait...

also there was totally a ceilidh at the wedding I went to the other day except there were too many people so everyone kept bumping into each other (: (and I found out a week later that the hottest boy there was dating the second hottest boy thus reinforcing the theory that All The Good Ones Are Gay)

Duckliiiiiiings. I have been looking at a lot of googledocs recently in quiet despair. It's like I've run out of words and now all I have left in my creative soul is blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. OH WELL.

Oh, the Conway. I am enjoying how now as soon as anything with cogs appears anywhere on the internet everyone is like MUST INFORM LAL. We got given a ton of apples so I decided to find something interesting to do with them, and then also made apple crumble. That is how many apples we had.

They are so much fun! Obviously I grew up in a very Celtic place so I went to a lot (and did competitive celtic dancing, oh yes #coolest) but they are great. (sigh, why is this so?)

You should close all the docs except ducklings and then write ALL THE FIC. (although I am totally with you in the having of a blaaaaaah creative soul. Where have all the words gone? Did we use them up, Lal? DID WE USE THEM ALL UP??????)

We had a bag full of apples so we made apple mush ready to be frozen and turned into crumbles all through winter (: (we also do this with blackberries! Winter is a good time for crumble!)
