Does anyone know anything about a con called the SFX Weekender? It's in February in Sussex.

Because, you see... I'm sort of considering going. *g* I got a message on Facebook from a girl I knew at school, Chris. She's 3 years older than me (it was a lot at the time) and one of the few kids at my school who lived anywhere near me. We used to sit at the back of the bus on the way home every afternoon, plotting how we were going to be the youngest ever authors of a DS9 script, or discussing why B5's gate system made more scientific sense than Star Trek's warp drives. When she went away to uni, I visited her a couple of times for weekends, and she told me way more than my impressionable young ears had ever thought to hear about lesbian sex.

We lost touch over the years - she became bi and found God and became a maths teacher and got married and had a kid. I moved Up North, which is an equally dramatic lifestyle change according to my London-based friends.

I think a lot of why I'm considering going is because I want to hang out with Chris again. I'm not too fussed about seeing John Barrowman, although what YouTube footage I've seen of James Marsters at cons has been promising. Opinions?

In other news, Dex stole and ate an entire loaf of bread last night. Obviously this lost him his breakfast rights. All morning, he has been standing in front of the cupboard where his normal doggy sanctioned food lives, like, 'but why aren't you feeding me?!', but has just laid down, belly bulging, for a carbs coma. It was nice bread, too, the cheeky bugger. He probably wouldn't have bothered if it was the normal cheap supermarket own-brand stuff. *glares*

ETA: My God, the formatting issues! *stabs LJ*. Let's try that again, without the randomly interrupted paragraphs and missing text.

I have had the most awesome seven days I can remember having in... years, possibly.

It went like this:

So... I've had a bit of an overdose of squee this past week. It has been awesome.

And, kitty needs a name! Any ideas?

My housemate C and I watched Supernatural on our lunchbreak today (Reason #875020824 why it's great to be self-employed).

She's always been so sweet and innocent! She's leapt straight from not seeing slashy chemistry in Smallville (for God's sake, how?!) to incest.

My work here is done! Now to get her into the right fandom. She claims to hate sci fi, but on today's turnaround? She'll be making a model Millenium Falcon while wearing a Klingon forehead and Spock ears by the weekend.

In the past week or two, I've listened to a lot of podfic. A lot. Like: all day; everyday. Giggling while I paint, listening to porn while I tile a bathroom... Work is no longer boring. Work is fun.

Here are the ones I've enjoyed the most, helpfully listed with almost no useful information to help you navigate - except to say that they are all, individually, brilliant. Believe it or not, this is only about half of what I've listened to - these are the ones I loved the most.

If you download any of these, take a moment to thank [personal profile] general_jinjur for her hard work in compiling them all in one easy place. I approached her to see if she needed anything in recompense for me beasting her bandwidth, and she just wants this: If you know any SGA podfic that's not on her site? Let her know. Bear her in mind whenever you come across something new. Okay? Okay.

Lately, I've been pouring all my fannish energies into a project of [personal profile] unadrift 's, the community sga_episodefic, and tonight we went live!

It's a comm for episode related stories - tags, missing scenes and AUs. Using the tags, you can find stories related to your episode of choice. We've got our 60 favourites up so far, which is still just a fraction of what's out there.

If you like the idea of a resource to find episode-related stories, please head on over and post your own fics, or rec to things you've enjoyed. Speaking as someone who was once reduced to googling for tags to Grace Under Pressure (googling! I'm still haunted) I really hope this comm takes off like I think it ought to.

If you enjoy using it, please pimp it on your LJ. There's a lot of great content already. Have fun!
