So, I spent the weekend at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, attending Chevron 7.4.  It was frakking AMAZING!!!  You may have
guessed this if you've seen my Facebook or Twitter today!  Anyway, I'm posting this mostly for my own benefit while it's still clear in my head, but  if you want to read it, feel free!

In which I meet Ryan Robbins and David Hewlett...Collapse )

Wow, LJ! Long time no see! Can I even remember how to do this?

  Watched new SGU and Sanctuary last night, but it was early morning here, and I was a bit drunk, so not sure how much of it I actually remember... Since nobody I see in RL really watches them, I'm going to babble about them here. I miss having  cosmic_llin around to talk to...

Wow, I really overuse the word also in this post.

I was just happily watching some SG-1 special features earlier, which reminded me about Collectormania, which Amanda Tapping is attending. I've been really excited about this since it was announced, but it just occured to me that the date of the con is 5-7 of June. I got a bit worried, because I thought that my exams were still on then, and I wouldn't be able to go.

So I checked the dates of the exam period - May 18th to June 6th. So, I thought, it should be ok, unless my exams go to the very end, I can travel down to MK Friday or Saturday, come back Sunday, I should at least get the chance to meet Amanda.
Then I remembered that I get kicked out of my accomodation after exams. So I checked that date.
7th June. At 10am.
So, the only way I can possibly do it is if my exams finish early in the week, so that I can pack and go home before Friday, so that I can go down to MK. The plus side of this is that it's a much shorter train journey from Junction to MK than Aber to MK (there's no way I'm driving).
The negative side? The exam timetable won't be released for ages. Probably in April, though I'm not sure. So, by the time I know if I can go or not, it's going to be bloody impossible to find accomodation for the weekend
Plus, I'm going to have to find somebody to come with me, because I don't particularly want to go on my own.

If it were any other weekend in summer, it would be no problem. But no, it has to be the most onconvenient weekend possible.

Sometimes I'm so glad I'm a sci-fi fan. MOst of my lectures are really boring, until something sci-fi related shows up. I'm doing revision for my boring physics module, and a slide about Nikola Tesla showed up. Now my notes for the exam have a smily vampire face on them. I miss Sanctuary already. And should get back to revision ;(

See, now I have to post to show off my shiny new Sanctuary mood theme. Damn pretty things making me need to contact the outside world...
Our new flatmate is making us a Chinese dinner tonight. I had to show her how to use the cooker. I'm slightly worried.

Hey guys!
Just to let you all know that I haven't died! I am in fact, still here, just that I can't be bothered to turn my computer on most days. Because when I do it has a tendancy to go nuts. So by the time I've read my flist etc, I'm too mad at it to do anything else!
School is boring, work is boring and I'm watching way to much TV in between, and therefore not doing my homework! Ahh, sixth form.
Current Location: my room

Current Music: Aerosmith - Cryin'

Nia: "Stepping through the Stargate"
Llin: "Stepping through the Stargate" and "Green Day: Rebels with a Cause"
