Well, I've now got the iPod; it's taken some digging, but I've found that the Dreamwidth web posting form works fine on it. A proper app would still be greatly appreciated though, because Safari is a little too fond of randomly zooming-in while I'm trying to type. Speaking of which, it's surprisingly easy to type on here - I'm actually typing with two fingers at the moment, and my typo rate's only slightly above my usual.

As my dad works at an electronics store, he was the one to pick it up for me. Not only did he get a staff discount, but my iPod came with a free charger and £25 iTunes voucher! Seriously, my dad's workplace is awesome.

PS: I've named my iPod "Glitch" - can anyone guess the really dorky reference?

So I'm back. And it was actually drier up in the Lakes than it currently is down here. Well, it was until Thursday, anyway. Most of the time, it was a combination of sun and rain, which ended up creating a sight I had never seen before:



No trickery, it was genuinely that low down. This was taken on our way back to Ambleside via the Kirkstone Pass while we were sat in a car park. And we kept on seeing rainbows like this one throughout the week. It was quite amazing.

And this is what I brought while I was there )

After the opportunity arose to get a Dreamwidth invite code, I figured I may as well do it now rather than later. After all, it's a known fact l that anything technology related can and go wrong at the slightest provocation, so Plan B is always a good idea.

And almost as soon as I sign and imported everything over, LJ goes bananas. When I said "one false move and we're looking at blank screens for three months" in my last post, I wasn't being serious about it!

So anyway, this is me testing both asLJ's posting to Dreamwidth (apparently it's a bit buggy) and Dreamwidth's crossposting feature. And yeah, if any of you already have a Dreamwidth, can you tell me your username so I can add you?

Off on a tangent now - my mum found this out for my planned Steampunk cosplay:



It's my dad's old pocket watch (and apparently he glued it shut). The sound it makes is just awesome.

I'm now 9 hours into SoulSilver after a slight problem in starting a new game after trading over Cyndaquil to [livejournal.com profile] angelbless' HeartGold game (you have to erase the old save first? Who came up with that idea). Somehow, I wound up with a female Totodile, to the utter amazement of the others (especially my sister as she's been trying to get a female Chikorita ever since the original games). And as if I haven't problems with getting attached to these little bundles of pixels in the first place, the "lead Pokémon follows you" thing is now making it ten times worse.

Btw, what on Earth is with all the female Pokemon? I swear didn't see a male for about two hours today. And is Falkner a Time Lord? Because even with the size difference between outdoor and indoor in these game taken into account, that gym is still bigger on the inside.

I've also managed to get the DSs online using a stupidly long modem cable (and why do we even have that?), an ethernet cable, my old iMac and some tinkering with a firewall. Obviously, it needs to be turned on before we can get online, and the range can't reach upstairs, but it's working.

Friend code is: Leanne 2622 5015 5349. Will trade for Piplup egg/hatchling.

Now off to train Mareep. Which would be easier if she already had Thundershock.

PS: Also have Professor Layton and Pandora's Box. It's like having the puzzle section of our old Find Out More magazine collection in video-game form.

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 [livejournal.com profile] 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.

I went to the Midlands Expo with Hayley ([livejournal.com profile] angelbless) and my friend Emily on yesterday and met up why Hayley's online friend, also called Emily (I'm referring to my Emily as Em and Hayley's as Emily for the rest of this). It. Was. AWESOME. I have photos, I have more video than my hard drives can stomach (and my laptop so hates me for it) so I'm going to have to make another post just for the video (YouTube is going to hate love me).

Photos and shenanigans through here )
