After watching so much television I should know that anyone who cheats on their spouse for months is going to be a liar you can't trust who will dump you with absolutely no explanation for someone else but...

Ugly on the inside and all that.

I just feel really stupid.

Every year I say I'm going to do NaNoWriMo and often times don't even start writing or even think about it. It has negative power; the power to make me not think about writing.

This year I'm going to try to do it and finish it.

I promised [livejournal.com profile] heartsways I would write her a trashy novel in the vein of Jilly Cooper's Rutshire Chronicles. Naturally this will also be set in England but less on society and more on an X Factor-esque tv show. I have to avoid local dialects though without serious help. British people have so many accents and phrases that I get confused. I can tell a Geordie from a Scouser now though!

To write "Canadian" all you have to do is make sure you use "grade three" into of "third grade", throw words like "double-double" and "tuque" all over the place and make sure everyone is really polite. Stereotypes to be sure but on Sunday I ate a poutine at Harvey's while wearing a wool & polar fleece hat made to look like a bear. It doesn't get more stereotypical than that.

Obligatory filter poll:
[Poll #1474038]

Also, I have my icons back. So I'm up to 124 icons. (See my pretty new Dannii icon?) I have a few empty spaces so if people come across any nice The Good Wife, Castle or FlashForward icons you think I might like, link me up.

Another old picture from back in February when [livejournal.com profile] heartsways and I visited Mary Arden's House in Stratford-Upon-Avon. This falconer just had I look I really liked.

This picture is from last weekend when [livejournal.com profile] heartsways and I headed to an old moated manor near Warwick, called Baddesley Clinton. There's a nice garden as well as a large estate with ponds and such. This was one of the ponds.

It wasn't the best day to be taking pictures, since it was so overcast, but I really liked the way this picture turned out. The water reflects so nicely.

A shot from the back of St. Nicholas Park, near Kingfisher Pool, right beside the Avon.

Yay! I am back in England and it's very nice to be sleeping in my bed and not the hotel bed. I'll try to catch up on commenting and things. And likely make a post about Wales. Which was very fun, although there were a few mishaps involving really crappy food at a Little Chef.

I went to work with [livejournal.com profile] heartsways today. She's such a slacker, we were only there for an hour. Well, not really. She had to do something somewhere else and I tromped around in the mud (seriously, it was very mucky) and took a lot of pictures. This one is one of my favourites.

Castle Lane in Warwick. Naturally, it's right beside the castle.

IN ENGLAND. And already watching Deep Space 9. Woot!

I still haven't seen last night's Battlestar Galactica. I downloaded it and burned it to the final 4.0 disc I've made for my mom and my brother. I'm waiting until I get to England so [livejournal.com profile] heartsways and I can watch it together.

I have a lot to do before my flight, like pack and clean my room and such. But that is for after I finish this cup of tea.
