It seems my flist has been invaded by mustelids. Yesterday I read about both brain-weasels and ferret-brain. I'm wondering how to protect myself from this. I suspect if my brain were to become infested with slinky carnivores they'd be ermines - they're beautiful, they change with the seasons and, um.. they kill for fun? Yikes.

Also: FLAIL!. I'm not gonna speculate too much but having played through DA2 and read Asunder (don't judge me), I am quietly squeeing over here that it looks like they're taking it where I hoped they would. Nuff said. I have never pre-ordered a game for myself before (I've done it a bit for other people), but this one I will be. And then I will be taking time off work to play it. Because I'm that much of a dork. Stuff about the new engine and gameplay here.

In other news, our double glazing got installed yesterday. If I were a really good LJer I suppose I would have recorded the lack of street noise and embedded it here for you, but instead I suggest you all put on a pair of noise-cancelling headphones to replicate the effect. I could also have taken a picture I guess, but ffs it's double glazing, it doesn't look all that different from single glazing. It does make the bedroom a lot warmer though. And they are clean! This is a big deal when you're three stories up in a building that only gets window-washed once a year if it's lucky.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to decide whether to go to today's lecture or not. Part of me thinks I might learn something, part of me knows I can learn as much by doing the readings, another part of me just doesn't care. When did I stop caring? Oh yeah, after 5 years of caring a lot and then being presented with a lecturer who doesn't care. However, I do care enough to have checked when my final exam is, and it's on Monday the 29th of October. Which means that by the end of October I will be DONE!

(just had to get that out of my system)

By my calculations, this means that going to visit rivet and TAFKARF in Melbourne and having a wee dance is definitely an option. I've never been to Melbourne. *excite*

PS OMG that's less than 6 weeks! :-DDDDDD

I just saw this over at Neil Gaiman's blog and wondered whether you would help give it some airtime in the name of, well I'm not sure how to word it...

Gosh, that is an important service.

The art of drunkenness has many unimagined requirements. O.o

Remember, in situations like that you're obliged to do the white girl shuffle. You know, like with cards and stuff.
