Defriending Amnesty and RL Catch Up.

So, I'm not actually dead, I just haven't been online very much. I keep meaning to make posts, but then I think I should get caught up on my flist first, and wow, that's just going to take forever. It seems like whenever I finally get caught up on my flist I'm only able to stay caught up for a day or so then I get behind again. I hate to say this, but I might have to do a flist cut :( So, before I do that, I want to declare today defriending amnesty day on paraka's journal. If you feel we've drifted apart, or you're kind of busy too, or if we just never clicked, feel free to defriend me today, and no hard feelings.

In other RL news...
-OMG work has been insane. I hate tenders, and I keep getting really big ones. I'm hoping things will settle down now that we're hitting March 31st Year End, but I have a sneaking suspicion that April will be just as bad, since everyone will now have new budgets to play with.
-I've actually been having a social life late. It's still a fandom social life, but I think that just makes it 10X better than a normal social life. diurnal_lee has introduced me to the wonderful idea of write-ins (well, we've kind of changed the name to play dates since I'm not actually a writer). Where we get together in a group and work on fandom stuff. If we continue on this trend, I may actually have a vid done in the next few months. As well as a podfic. We've also been getting together, along with some of the other ottawa_slashers just to hang out. kronos999 had me watching Twin Peaks yesterday afternoon.
-God, last week, kronos999 talked me into going to see the midnight showing of Watchmen, even though I worked the next day. And because I live out in the country, I don't actually like going home if I know I'm going to have to go back into the city that night, so I ended up just killing time between work and meeting up with her for a late dinner and then the movie. While killing time, I decided to pick up a birthday present for a friend and managed to walk out of Best Buy with $200 worth of DVDs. *headdesk* I'm able to justify splurges like that when I'm buying from Amazon or something, then it's all in the name of shipping costs, but there's really no excuse when it's a store. Still. I got, S1 and 2 of Dexter, Terminator the Sarah Connor Chronicles S1, Passchendaele, and S2 of Heroes.
-Speaking of Heroes, I finally started watching it. I spent many a sleepless night watching S1. S2 hasn't been as gripping, but I'm still really loving it. Such a slashy show. I'm pretty sure future!Hiro practically declared his undying love for Ando in S1. So cute! And the Petrelli Brothers? Something more is *so* going on there.
-Speaking of Passchendaele, I know there are a lot of Due South lovers on my flist (even though the love seems to be skewed more towards CKR than Paul Gross), would anyone like me to upload it for them?
-Whee! Only 11 days until I leave for Europe! Psst. scatterheart are you still interested in meeting up at some point while I'm there? Because I would totally love to meet you :D
-I'm going to be there for 10 days, because I have no concept, how much money do people think I should bring with me? I'm going to have my credit cards with me, but I should have cash too. I'm just not sure what to expect.
-Oh, and once I get back from Europe, I'm going to be getting a mortgage broker and real estate agent, and start really looking for a house! So exciting!!!
