[loudtwitter] My Twitterings from the last 24 hours

10:01 I slept for 11 hours - which has made up for my 3 or so per 24 recently - and woke up 5 mins before my alarm! #

13:49 Realises that the tweet I sent by SMS yesterday never made it to twitter. :( I used the right phone number, as well! :( #

13:50 It was sent at 19:15 last night: #

13:51 "At roleplaying con. Knitting and listening to podcasts. TR:PS ep4 = WOW!!! *speechless & gobsmacked*" #

Friends groups

I want to create a friends group for posting memes. I know that many of you love it when I post memes but also that some of you hate it. I will only add people to the memes group if they want to see memes.

Poll #1131848 Do you want to be able to see memes on my LJ?

Your thought on memes:

YES - please add me to the group so that I can see memes.
NO - do NOT let me see memes.
Just make memes public so that non-LJ-ers and feed readers can see them.
Who cares?
Other - other opinions? please comment if so.

Fictional memories - creative writing

seen on manoman:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you're finished, post this little paragraph in your journal and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you. (Only if you so desire, of course).

Not really a mindless meme - more of a creative writing prompt post and so I am not putting it into the memes friends group.

My reply to his post, here, was:

"What always makes me smile is remembering that time in the junior common room of Vanbrugh College (York University) when we were making and selling toasted sandwiches for the 12 hour all-nighter horror video marathon and you said that we should make omelette/egg and ketchup ones and call them 'bloody smashed brains' toasties!"

So, let'em rip!

I have had a pretty ugh day with pain and various other TMI stuff. Almost definitely something that I ate - most likely red peppers and/or spring onions in a stir-fry which was very yummy but I have not been well since. The Immodium does seem to be doing its job now, though.

The good news is that I am meeting up with the one other person that expressed interest on the village community website's forums (so far) for coffee/tea/etc., chat and yarncrafts (knitting/crochet/etc.) at a local café/eaterie in the village tomorrow afternoon.

I only hope that I am feeling okay tomorrow...

As I was organising this (and had previously found a twice-monthly meetup called 'Clack & Yak' in Arundel), I also came across a meetup via Ravelry at the Station Beefeater in Horsham! How convenient is that! I don't yet know how frequent that meetup will be, Gosh! Choices, or no choices and go to all! ;-p
