Day two!

I am actually posting this a day late, because I was quite tired yesterday!

So, I got up and dressed, had toast for breakfast and went to my first race in nearly 2 years! It was a 10k run/walk or a 4k run. I decided on the 4k run because I felt kind of sick and didn't want to push myself. It was seriously crowded. They expected maybe 500 people, but there was over 1000! They ended up giving out pieces of paper with your race number on and one pin to stick it to you,  because there wasn't enough! I was no. 701! So we hung around waiting for the 10k-ers to get a head start, and off we were. I was unfortunately in the middle, and had planned to walk to warm up because I'd forgotten my gloves and got cold waiting, but instead I immediately started running so I could get out the crowds. Unfortunately, basically the first 1km was a giant hill, so I paced that, but was already ahead so no crowds :D

Along the way I took a few photos. I was trying to beat a record so I didn't want to stop often.


This is an old abandoned house on the route. All the windows are kicked in and the door rotting, but an Irish flag is still hanging from the window. You don't see flags on houses often here, so I stopped to take a picture.


My phone doesn't accurately capture the beauty of the mountain ahead. The sun was shining on it and the sky sure didn't seem that grey!

I finished the 4k in exactly 30 minutes. Not too shabby considering the hills. They were seriously like MMMMMM, up and down and up again. Got sandwiches, lucozade, cups of tea, rice krispy buns and a slice of apple pie before going home. Lazed around a bit at home, then had a shower and attempted yet again to do something with my hair. It failed.

Then I had my dinner, which I *did* take a picture of, but it has vanished. It was tomato soup, then grilled chicken, parsnip and carrot mash, and potatoes. Not hugely exciting, but healthy, so.

Spent the rest of the day reading, internetting, tidying up and watching old clips of 'Whose Line'. Such a good show! Then off to bed :)

So, I came home at lunch time, feeling okay, and saw this meme.


Podficcers Love Meme: ON DW | ON LJ




So I said to myself, ah post a comment. Came home feeling absolutely rotten, and got some emails telling me I had replies to my comment. <333333 Everyone made my day so much better so quickly :) Thanks guys.

Go on, post a comment!

I love these sort of things. Back when Bebo (does anyone remember that or was that an Irish thing) was huge, there were these posts that you would fill in so people would know you better and I would do about twenty of them. So it's interesting to see what <i>other</i> people think of me!

Comment and I'll tell you:

1. Tell you why I friended you. If I remember.
2. Associate you with something.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Associate you with a character/pairing.
6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.
8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.

 Meme stolen from... Everywhere? I have no idea who the original source is.

First TV show I had self-insertion fantasies about:

There was this weekly(?) magazine called W.I.T.C.H. about these girls who had magic powers. I was addicted. Although I didn't know it at the time, it was my first fanfiction. I LARP-d kiddie style with my friends, collected every single thing to do with it, visited the website daily and made potions n' shit.

First fandom in which I interacted (online and in person) with other fans:

Online, it was properly Harry Potter. I can't remember before that - I have a feeling there was something else. There was also the House of Night series in which I role-played, wrote awful fic and had long meaningful discussions. I guess that counts? But yeah, Harry Potter. Isn't it for most? I wasn't the biggest fan though, so I'll go with HoN. I still talk to people I met on the boards I frequented!

Pairing in the first slash fanfiction I read:

Oh man. I don't think I even realised it, but Harry/Draco. Or else it was when I fell into Glee with a bam and read everything to do with Kurt. It might've been Kurt/Finn, I presume then.

First RPS/RPF I read:

It was in Glee, I'm fairly sure. A Chris/Mark fic. Man I loved that pairing. Then I fell into bandom, and well. You know what happens then.

First fanfiction I read that made me think, 'YES, this is exactly the kind of fanfiction I'd like to write...':

I think it was by [livejournal.com profile] miggy but that seems too recent compared to how long I've been in fandom. But yeah, I think it was a prompt on the glee angst meme that spawned a 70,000 word epic of Kurt and Finn being kidnapped and turned into basically sex slaves. I didn't even ship Kurt/Finn but man. It was amazing.

Pairing in the first fanfiction I wrote:

I think it was femslash. Trust me, eh? Zoey/Stevie Ray, I thiiink, from HoN.

First OTP:

Kurt/Puck. Man, why did I start in Glee (properly).

First fannish friend I met in person:

I went to a few meetups and met people there, but I was following [tumblr.com profile] heathersabs before I met her IRL (now we're bffs!) and [twitter.com profile] otherothergirl
First character I formally roleplayed:

I think it was in HoN, an awful OC who listened to Fall Out Boy and had emo bangs. Gawd.

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
I can't stand Egg Nog. I must be the only person. Hot chocolate is cool n all, but I'm Irish. A cuppan tae is the only way.
