'Full of snot and hate' is the name of my new album, by the way.

Sick. Off work. Going to play some Div and hope I feel better.

I have a cold and I hate it, I have a sore throat and I hate it. I am full of snot and hate.

Hillary Clinton is going to be on This Morning, which is amazing, but Bernie Sanders is going to be the keynote speaker at the first Women's Convention in America in 40 years, which is...almost inexplicable.

The news for me this week has pretty much been:

  1. Donald Trump is a dick (not surprising).

  2. Harvey Weinstein is a dick (slightly more out of the blue, but still not really surprising).

  3. Szechuan sauce.

Sometimes you've just got to let yourself have the good things in life, like baklava and Edwad Emberpants.

I don't think much of the weather at the moment though. I left the house in a jumper yesterday, because I was in a hurry. The weather needs to fuck off.

  • A while back, in spring, they started selling tickets for the first ever Rooster Teeth convention in London. Because I subscribe, I got first dibs on buying them, and I bought one just in case they sold out, and then immediately tried to basically forget about it because I didn't know if I could handle the stress/expense of planning a trip to London for a weekend around it. Anyway, I pretty much successfully forgot about it, except when they mentioned RTX London somewhere. I always kind of idly thought 'maybe I'll just book a hotel last minute, I can always take money out of my savings if the train's expensive'. Anyway, the convention starts on Friday, so it's pretty clear at this point that I am in fact not going. My ticket will languish in e-space, unused.


  • I had a dentist appointment yesterday, and I was freaking out about it because I have been drinking a lot more coke and stuff lately over the stressful times this year. Plus I had to get up super early. But I basically went in, the dentist looked at my teeth, told me they looked good, I was a very good brusher, they were really good, and let me go. Didn't even think they needed polishing or anything. He didn't even mention the enamel problems I have until I asked about it, and then he said it 'wasn't bad'. So basically he just told me I was great, and I left. It was great.


  • My parents saved a hedgehog yesterday. My mum found it not looking great on a pavement outside our neighbours house, and took it inside. She called me for advice, and I basically read what was on the internet and started badgering her (ha ha) about making a hot water bottle and refilling it regularly, and then literally everywhere told me to take it to a vet, hedgehogs shouldn't be out during the day, so I suggested maybe she do that. She probably regretted taking it in eventually, but it turned out there's a hedgehog rescue centre just a town over from us, so my dad took it there. It's nice to know there's a place so close by, because we do seem to see hedgehogs not looking so great pretty regularly at the moment. Also looking healthy, sometimes, but I saw one passed out on someone's lawn earlier in the summer, and we found one last year that seemed like it had passed out with heatstroke. I hope there isn't a problem in the area, but I suppose hedgehogs just aren't doing well in general. And it is nice to see them and know we have them in the area.

I found the chicken. It was still there when I started the game.

Hello, I love Divinity: Original Sin 2, and I want to talk about it. From here on out, I will be referring to it as Div.

Spoilers for Divinity: Original Sin 2, I guess )

I went to see the new IT film, big spoilers for IT )

My other thoughts from going to the cinema:

  • A film about a man killing women to send a message to another man, starring Michael Fassbender, yes, just what we need.

  • A film with a huge male cast with just one woman in it: for when you really hate women, but you don't want people to think all your characters and everyone who would go see the film are queer or something.

I did it, I got through this terrible week that suddenly turned into a bucking bronco in the middle. It's Friday and it doesn't feel like Friday, yesterday felt like Friday, and today just feels like The End.

I am going to see the IT film tomorrow, and I kind of think it will be terrible, it's clear from the trailer than the main character doesn't even have a stutter, and Henry does not have a crewcut and his jacket is not pink with an eagle on it, and I physically can't believe it's a 15, they must have cut so much out. But given how underwhelmed I was with the ending of the book, I'm hoping it'll go a little harder on the Killer Clown, Scare Scare Scare aspects and might be more satisfying in that regard. And then I might try to dig up the 90s miniseries, which is apparently only about 3 hours long,and watch that, and then I will know all the spoilers, and I will be able to look at all the fandom stuff forever. I can read all the Reader/Pennywise fic I can dream of.

Got back home tonight, a little annoyed that my parents would be back and would probably want to talk about their holiday, and I couldn't just go upstairs and play Divinity Original Sin. But I prepared myself for it. Got back, saw my parents, talked for a while about the episode of Emmerdale I saw last night to my mum, then asked her how the holiday was, and she said 'wearing'.

So much for all the preparation.

My parents are coming back on Thursday, and I was going to make a post about how these last two weeks actually went better than I thought they would, but I was glad we sent the dog to my sister's. And now it turns out it's a good thing we did, because the CEO of my company called me at quarter to eight this morning, because the morning reception had called in sick. Could I come in any earlier? I also knew that my manager was on holiday, so there would be barely anyone in the Facilities office to cover the desk if I didn't, and one of the other two Facilities guys said he'd be coming in late because of a doctor's appointment. But, on the other hand, there was a train strike today, and I had to go into town to pick up a prescription, it was literally the last day of my old one. But I said I would, but that I wouldn't be able to give them a very good time because of the strike till knew about the buses.

I managed to get into work for 10:45-ish, and it turned out that not only was the Monday/Tuesday morning receptionist sick and my manager was on holiday, but the other guy in Facilities (who takes sick leave quite often, to be honest) had said he wasn't coming in for the rest of the day and they weren't convinced he'd be in tomorrow, and the other two Facilities guys who are sort of between offices but can be called upon were in Solihull for the day, and the Wednesday/Thursday/Friday receptionist had called to say she couldn't come in tomorrow because her baby had an ear infection. So they asked if I could start at 11 again tomorrow. I wash my hair on Wednesday's, which made it trickier, but they really needed me, so I said yes. At least I will be able to get a train tomorrow, and the W/T/F receptionist said she'd be able to come in Thursday and Friday. But there is another train strike on Thursday, the day my parents get back, so I won't be getting in till late that day either.

I left the house at 9am this morning and got back at 9pm tonight. The cat had to fend for herself with just some food in her bowl, but she seems to have eaten a bird to give herself sustenance, and she didn't leave any giblets in the garage just some feathers, so that's okay. I still have to wash my hair in the morning, and it's also the day I tend to do a breast check, which I always get worried and anxious about, but if I don't do it I will probably also feel anxious that maybe there is a lump to find until I can do it again. And my life is hard. Very hard. I bought myself a lot of chocolate from Hotel Chocolat today to make it up to myself, but it is still very hard.

All I want to do is play Divinity Original Sin 2, and now my time is shortened, and I keep having to have fights I'm not very good at to try to progress the story, I'm not very tactical it turns out, and \sauidogyhsoidghsdokjh.

Hard.

Went to see if there is indeed IT fic, and the first two stories on AO3 are Pennywise/Reader.

Oh, fandom.

Just switched on my computer for the second time today. Went to type in the password, accidentally typed 'Pennywise'.

I'm nearly at the end of IT, and honestly, I'm not loving the ending. Like, it's fine, and I don't hate it, and it's even making me emotional, but...I don't know. Spoilers )

But also, now that I am getting close to the end of the book, it's occurred to me that one of the spoilers I know, that I've been trying to predict when will happen, and been apprehensive of and anticipating - might have been something that happened in the tv miniseries, not the book. Unless It has some tricks left up It's sleeve.

In other news, I have fallen into Divinity: Original Sin 2, and I might not be getting out for quite a while.
