Movies & Illness & "Novel" update - helen-louise
Movies & Illness & "Novel" update
WTF? According to IMDB, the UK isn't getting Wreck-It Ralph until 15th February 2013. That is just ridiculous. The Disney official site says 8th February 2013, but that's scarcely an improvement. Does Disney not realise that in this day and age, people have friends all over the world? Three months is a long time to wait.

In other news, I have assumed that my weird illness last week was down to side-effects from increasing my dose of venlafaxine. Everything that was wrong was a thing mentioned on the leaflet. If I'm not all the way better next week, I'll worry about it then.

Sutton Hospital have sent me an absolutely ridiculous packet of questionnaires that need to be filled in and taken to my appointment on 11th December. Seriously - I haven't counted the sheets, but we're talking at least 15 sheets of A4 paper. Do they not realise I have chronic fatigue? Damn them.

Also, my NaNoWriMo "novel" has reached the fabled and mythical 50,000 words status. I shall submit it for checking in a few days. The story is approximately half-finished, so I need some other word counter software to plot a little graph to show how I'm doing relative to the idea of N words per day. I'm absolutely sure I could do this in OpenOffice or Excel, but I like the public-ness of the NaNoWriMo site. Anyone know of an alternative that exists all year round?

What time is your appt at Sutton, and would you like company? (I would normally be volunteering until 2pm but might wrangle an early finish if needed.

2.30pm. Richard's coming with me since he has the day booked off work (annual leave to use up), and we're being driven there by hatter. If he remembers. I shall call him again in a few days to make sure :)

It would be nice to meet up with you at some point soon, especially if it could involve Delicious Nickie Lemon Cake? Not sure when, though. My plans for this coming week involve attempting to get into College on Monday and Friday, and not a lot else.

Could come over Wednesday afternoon with lemon cake if you like? :-)

I got your text but can't remember if your phone gets silenced at night or not.

Tomorrow (later today) is odd - if I wake up in time I'm going to a lecture at UCL from 1-2pm, but then I need to come more-or-less straight home since there is a demonstration along the Strand from 5.30pm. I could meet you at Waterloo, in that case. Otherwise, I'll be at home. But where I am depends on how I'm feeling which I won't know until about 11.15am.

Got your message, thanks. Lemon cake is cooling, sadly it sank in the middle a bit, but there should be good pieces too. I added mashed banana this time after our last conversation about the recipe. I cut the quantity of water and it seemed ok, but maybe the mix was a bit too wet. That or it just wanted longer before testing. Have made notes for next time.
Can get to Waterloo if you want, no problem, or if you don't manage to get into town and would prefer me to deliver cake to your home, that's fine too. See you later, hopefully. Xxx
