I'm sitting at my desk. It's lunch time. The office is empty, but I'd already eaten the contents of the local sweetshop before 11am, so I've nothing to do. Hence, here is a photo.




1. Gmail. My love, my saviour, my life. In my old job, you couldn't access gmail at work, and I honestly don't know how I survived it. As you can see, it is complete with obligatory chat window, for bothering people who are actually trying to work.

2. Times Crossword online. Another saviour, though I shan't admit how shamefully often I have to phone my Grandmother for the answers.

3. Shake. Actual work! I know, it's amazing. Nodes, nodes, nodes. Here, have some code:

Saturation7 = Saturation(0, 0.7);


// User Interface settings

SetKey(
"nodeView.Saturation7.t", "0",
"nodeView.Saturation7.x", "-1612",
"nodeView.Saturation7.y", "-9623"
);


Yeah, liked that, didn't you, tech-sluts?

4. My wallpaper. I'm on the PC of my boss while he's away, and his wallpaper is a VERY close-up picture of a comb, with hair in it. It actually makes me feel physically sick.

5. MERLIN! Yes, that's right. I bought my DVDs in with me today. No one can see my screen from here, so I listen to episodes and commentaries while I'm at work. And sometimes I watch the extras on youtube. Oh, Merlin. Oh, two screens. How I love you both.

6. Letter to my Mum. I'm having to post my repeat prescription to her, and I'm very late with it, which is making my anxious all at the same time as I'm being lazy about posting it. How silly.



...So if we analyse this section-by-section I think we can see that my workspace is roughly 16% work. What percentage is yours?

Meanwhile, I'm getting excited about Red Nose Day for the first time in years! Mostly because I'm hoping the Merlin peeps will do something for it.

disappointingly, today is about 70% work with the remaining 30% actual alloted break times!! I'm making up for it now, though :)

So, I read your fabulous LA AU this weekend, and now (damn you) I'm riven by the desire to make a vid in that world, full of glamorous clips of LA and Arthur and Merlin finding themselves in this glittering town, set to some funky bossa nova along the lines of the Buena Vista Social Club album. And I can't because there is no source material! *weeps*

I clearly really need to learn how to make very realistic looking cartoons of Arthur and Merlin.

DUDE.

Do you really just want me to fling myself at your feet, b/c I will. I mean any LA footage you can crib from Entourage, what? I'm just saying.

Okay, seriously just the fact that you want to do so makes me feel very lucky and touched. You know I have totally missed your artistic self. OMG! We're in the same fandom! ::makes incoherant squee noise::

I'm glad you liked Blaggers. I had a lot of fun (heaps, big loads, stupendous amounts) writing the story. I totally confess.

Oh, I loved it, and can so clearly imagine the vid I'd make, with yes, loads of footage stolen from Entourage. We'll just have to pray Colin and Bradley make loads of modern stuff as well as new Merlin, so I've got stuff to work with. *g*

Oh. My. God. Seriously, You're playing with fire there *g*

I'm a shameless whore for anything Merlin - *beams winningly* - though stories set in modern London are my fave (though art-wise I guess I've probably done almost all I can with that premise!)

I love work-AUs. Maybe I should write them working at television centre together. Arthur as a demanding producer, Merlin as clumsy researcher. Wrap party!sex is the best *g*

I would love to do more like this I just think that perhaps everyone else has beat me to the punch. I can't think of a hook to be honest.

WTF

So, I dunno how it happened, when I can't seem to manage to write any of the other stuff I'd wanted to write, but I think you may be getting your wish. At least some of it. We shall see.
