This journal is for my personal posts and it' friends only. There will be some public entries as well but mostly it will be friends locked. Please feel free to browse around the public entries.

If you are interested to read my fics a better place for those is my fic journal [livejournal.com profile] fanfic_by_piksa. I don't really post fics here anymore. They are all posted at the fic journal. This is just for my personal entries.

It was my 5 year LJversary yesterday! Totally forgot all about it. Did remember it still during the weekend but brain was fried yesterday after work and there were no intelligent thoughts going around. Not that I'm saying there's usually intelligent thoughts going around in my head anyway...

So I've been here five years. It really doesn't feel that long. LJ has offered me a place where I can whine when things are down and squee when things are again looking up. I've met so many lovely people through this place and for that I'm very grateful.

I've been told to get a life when I've just sat at home surfing the Web but in my opinion being here has offered me a lot of experiences.

LJ has been a place for me where I can share my fics in peace and there are likeminded people who share my obsessions.

Here I don't get weird glances when I squee over some things, unlike in RL. Or at least I don't see the weird glances here *g*

So in short. Thank you to you all for being here with me! LJ is my home and I don't see myself leaving anytime soon!

Sharing this even if I'm not from the US.

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

Fidelity: Don't divorce...

Watch the video and then go sign the petition.

They ask for a zip code in the petition but I guess you can put almost anything there in case you aren't from the US either.

You are in my thoughts. Sending lots of positive and healing thoughts your way. Hoping for a speedy recovery!

Here is the final part of my con report. I do warn you that this is once more a long one. I did try to put as much detail into it as I could remember.

I do hope you enjoy!

There are again some pictures attached to the text.

Here is the first part of Sunday. RL has been crazy and I haven't gotten around writing the rest of Sunday yet. Will try to get it up during the weekend but here is my Sunday morning. Nothing too exciting *g*

Once more I've sometimes used just the initials of the guests. The new ones are:

SLG=Sara Lloyd-Gregory
AL=Anthony Lewis

Here's the next part of my report. There are again a few photos. You can get them bigger by clicking on them. Also I do have to warn you, this one is looooooong. And there's also one small possibly spoilerish thing in there about season three but I've hid that one. You can see it by painting over the text at that point.

Will start by saying that JB's laugh is the most wonderful thing in the world! And very infectious. I can't really describe it but if you've even heard him laughing, you know what I mean. And we heard a lot of his laughing during the weekend. He also had this adorable way of saying "Hee!" every once in a while. Made me swoon every single time. Yeah, a hopeless fangirl here...but proud of it!

I've also used at some parts just the initials of the guests. You probably know these all but I'm still including them here *g*

JB=John Barrowman
GDL=Gareth David-Lloyd
NM=Naoko Mori
KO=Kai Owen

Here is the first part of my con report. Nothing that interesting in this part since it mainly concentrates on me getting from home to Northampton. Still there is some stuff about the guests at the end. *g* Just a warning that tThere are also a few pictures (three) embedded into the story in case you are on dial-up. They are pretty small since I linked them from the LJ scrap book.

A bit worried now. Read from the discussion board of The Hub convention that some people have been contacted by the hotel to inform them that they no longer have rooms in the hotel due to some refurbishments. Those people are being transferred to the other convention hotel which is a few blocks from the actual hotel where all the things are going to happen. When one of the persons on the discussion board had called the hotel they had told her that at least all the people who booked the hotel in May will be transferred. I just checked that I booked my hotel on 30th of April. It really sucks if I get transferred. Sure it isn't that long way from the other hotel but still it won't be nice running between the hotels several times a day. Or returning to the hotel from one of the night parties. One of the reasons I tried to book the hotel well in advance was to make sure that I'll get a room from the convention hotel.

I really do hope I won't be one of those who will be transferred. Actually a bit worried if I even have a room in the hotel since I asked them to send me a confirmation e-mail which I never received. I did call them a few weeks after I made the initial booking and at that point they did tell me that everything was in order with my booking.

Keeping fingers crossed!
