For the first time in God-knows-how-many years, my area has had snow in the run up to Christmas. Everyone has every available body part crossed that the snow's still here in two days' time (another snow-storm would be nice), because it's my kid sister angelbless
' 21st birthday on Christmas Day and all she's ever wanted is snow on her birthday (she's never had a white Christmas in her life).
Due to my Mum being concerned that I didn't have many presents to open compared to my siblings (my interests come with a large price tag it seems), and asking if there was something else I wanted, come Christmas Day I'll be able to hook up the LCD TV in my room to my mac as a second monitor thanks to the adapter we brought yesterday. Now I can watch stuff online and still be able to do other stuff at the same time (prepare to be blitzed MSN Video, I'm after your Classic Who).
Speaking of Doctor Who, I'm halfway finished on another piece of fanart and my icon's a clue as to what it is (it's three weeks overdue - I blame Uni). Then there's another one that I want to start and finish before New Year's Day.
I've also surprised myself over how much I'm looking forward to watching Hamlet on Boxing Day (even more so considering I didn't even know the plot until last year). I used to complain about studying Shakespeare, but looking back on it I realised that I actually did enjoy the stories, and Hamlet is downright intriguing and I want to know why we didn't study it at school. Romeo and Juliet isn't remembered fondly though - I found it all to be a bit of a wallbanger to be honest (although I recommend the recent anime adaptation). I've also discovered that I have a knack for understanding the text. Not sure why, but I'm not about to complain.
Oh, and I've got bitten by the Pokemon bug again after reading about HeartGold and SoulSilver. Especially now I've found that you can transfer your GBA Pokemon to them (and the world-wide wi-fi trading is just an awesome feature) - I haven't been this excited about a Pokemon game since the original Gold and Silver came out.
And now to finish cleaning my room - I'm going for a record and seeing if I can do it all tonight.
