klena: (familiar faces and mixed up memories)
There are none of my fascinating Twitter thoughts today because I dragged myself to work, doubting strongly that I would make it the whole day (I was right) and felt so rough, I didn't even switch on my iPod. Appalling, I know.

Instead I came into work, sweated and shivered my way through half a day (and battling waves of mild, disgruntling nausea) before I asked to go home. My manager, Julie, had already been eyeballing me for two days, asking if I was going to go home.

So I did.

But before I did, I managed to book a few hours off work on the 20th August. Now, I was desperate to be off work all day, but my counterpart is already off and we're the team on Duty for our area, so that was a no-go. However, the end of the day was negotiable.

So I booked it off because I'm going to see Neil Gaiman.

Yes. Neil Gaiman.

At Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire. Event details are here

So I am flying out of work at 4, to catch a 4:45 train - changing at 6:06 for the local service to Ely, and will get there at 6:52.

Enough time to walk/skip/run the half mile to the Cathedral and try not to weep.

Because I wasn't sure about how I was going to get home or when the event would end (I've been reading of Neil signing for 4-5 hours recently), I booked a REALLY EARLY train the next morning. I was going to get the first train home at 5:30am but Dave eyeballed me and asked if I planned to sleep at the train station (I was going to, but his face discouraged me.)

So I've booked a room at a guest house that is 6 minutes walk away. If I manage my timing, I should be able to quickly check in before the event starts at 7:30. Here's hoping.

But fuck. FUCK. Getting to see and meet Neil Gaiman. It gives me butterflies. Or maybe that's the nausea kicking back in ;)
klena: (when both our cars collide)
So. As my roller-coastery tweets might communicate to people, the past two weeks have been swinging from cluster-fuck to resolution back into cluster-fuck. It's been getting a lot harder to cope the last few days, particularly with the business being quieter and our anniversary approaching and my mood dropping dramatically.

I'd been toying with making a seperate LJ filter for being in the know of The Situation, and adding some people that I trust, but I keep not doing it.
Number 1, because it'd just be filled with swearing and rage and lots of negativity
and
Number 2, because it's probably only of interest to me.
So that plan went out the window.

I keep feeling a little crazy!face though. Like I want to go and bleach all my hair and dye it some bright obnoxious colour like Clementine or to smash glass bottles against a wall or to scream lots. It's not nice.

Been wanting to pick up my sketchbook again too, and do fanart. Not anything of my own, don't feel creative enough again for that, but fanart for all the awesome "Inception" fics I've read, particularly [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub's non-fic fake!boyfriends and for [livejournal.com profile] whitehaiku's no-longer "Skeptics And Innocents" and for [livejournal.com profile] philosiraptors and [livejournal.com profile] mrsronweasley's "Becoming Joan" verse. However my sketchbook still sits on the architect desk.

Mother's Meeting this week went a little awry as [livejournal.com profile] rogue_dreams was unable to come as she was engaging in Epic Baking in preparation for Maelstrom and Emma was on her way to mine when she got called to the police station (she's a trainer lawyer and was on call tonight). So it was just me and Hannah, and I cooked. For those who know, I am not a confident cook and worry about fucking it up a lot. But tonight I cooked Lemon Chicken and Courgette Pasta and it was pretty fucking tasty. I am very happy with myself. Last week's Chicken and Potato pie wasn't too bad either :)

I feel absolutely fucking knackered but too wired to go to sleep yet. And there is nothing on TV. Awesome.

In conclusion

Tom Gunn - "The Reassurance"

About ten days or so
After we saw you dead
You came back in a dream
I'm alright now you said.

And it was you, although
you were fleshed out again:
You hugged us all round then,
And gave your welcoming beam.

How like you to be kind,
Seeking to reassure.
And, yes, how like my mind
To make itself secure.

And in complete contrast

klena: (sunlight surrouds you)
The first big thing to say about this entry is:
1000 ENTRIES, FUCK YEAH

It's only taken me nearly 9 years to get here, and has been stupidly helped out by crossposting of my tweets. I never thought I'd get to a point of 1000 entries! But here I am. Have some celebratory dancing .gifs!





I feel that adequately celebrates 1000 entries! I've been planning on writing this entry for about 3 weeks, but just haven't got around to it, or wanted to have a lot of good content and then I got distracted by lots of Inception fics so. Well. But I did go back and look at my very first LJ entry, oh my Lord.

I was 15, and this December I will turn 25. I honestly cannot believe how much has changed in that time. But then again, it was the period where people go through the biggest personality overhauls so it's not much of a surprise. It still was a little embarrassing, and also sort of sad to see me discussing people who aren't in my life anymore. But that's the way it goes.

I was going to do this huge thoughtful entry, but it's not really in my head, so instead I'm going to post a few little bits from the internet that have made me happy the past few weeks.

First! Poetry! One of Audrey Hepburn's favourite poems.

Unending Love by Rabindranath Tagore

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age forever.
My spell-bound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms

In life after life, in age after age forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together,
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:

You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount
At the heart of time love of one for another.
We have played alongside millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell -
Old love, but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you,
The love of all man's days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life,
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours -
And the songs of everypoet both past and forever.

How beautiful is that?

Second! An excellent quote from Tim Minchin that I discovered, when trying to find a download of his song "White Wine in the Sun" , which is a gorgeous non-Christian Christmas song. Here's the song on Youtube if you fancy a listen! White Wine In The Sun.

Anyway, he was discussing the controversy behind the song and was asked "Your song "White Wine in the Sun", which includes lyrics critical of Christianity, caused controversy last week in Australia when it was used on an album of Christmas songs sold to raise money for the Salvation Army. What's your take on the fuss?

I think the Salvos are idiots. I didn't know they would benefit from the CD, but by the time I found out I didn't want to make too much of a fuss. So I gave my song free, then they turn around and say that they don't agree with the sentiment of the song. Obviously, they are talking about how I think Jesus is not magic. Part of me is hugely outraged by what imbeciles they are, to bite the hand that feeds them and put their proselytising above charity.

It's a terrible paradox that most charities are driven by religious belief. I believe very strongly in giving only to secular charities, because I don't think there should be a back end to altruism. I won't make this mistake again. I tweeted that if people want to buy my version of the song independently, I'll give the proceeds away, as I did last year, to the National Autistic Society, a non-proselytising charity.

Christmas means much to billions of people who don't believe in Jesus, and if you think that Christmas without Jesus is not Christmas, then you're out of touch, and if you think altruism without Jesus is not altruism, then you're a dick.


What a wonderful sentiment, and really true. That last paragraph is the most important part, and the bit that made me nod and smile at the screen. It also doesn't hurt that the song is wonderful, and makes my heart just clench with joy listening to it.

Third and final! Who thinks today's A Softer World strip needs to be have an "Inception" re-imagining?



Fucking heartbreaking, but could turned into any pairing that people wanted. The first idea I had was a Mal/Cobb version, based on those arguments that Mal actually was right, and did wake up, and watches over Cobb as he lives in his dream!reality. Which also really works with the alt-text over the image: "Please don't leave me alone with our stupid children"

Yes yes?

To everyone who read this, well done! You deserve nice shiny things. Since it's been a 1000 entries, maybe I should start being more active with posting. If you still read my journal, then you should comment! Or let me know, especially if this is the only way you know me :)

klena: (a virgin losing a child)
I haven't blogged properly in a few weeks because of the fucking extra-ordinary circumstances I now find myself in.

I'm not going to pour my heart out about it here, it's not the time or the place. And also, whilst I have a large circle of friends who I believe should all get to know what's happening, I don't want the additional stress of wondering who they'll tell and the potential judgement that comes with everything we say. So better to keep my mouth closed.

It's much easier functioning from day to day now, but I think that's only because there is no option for me to run away from the business. This is something that I have to get through, because burying my head in the sand would destroy something that a lot of time and effort and dedication has gone into.

It'll be a month on Friday, which is strange. I keep wondering if I've actually just cracked mentally because surely I, with my history of falling apart, should have had a proper breakdown by now? Although maybe that's what those first few days were.

In another way, it is nice to know that I do have inner strength. I always wondered if I did.

There is the possibility of big news next week which will give me a possible end date to work towards. I wasn't expecting any news on that topic for at least a month so it was a little startling to hear it today.

These past few weeks and everything that has come with them has made me think a lot about the nature of love and of being in love.

I love a lot, even though I feel like a twisted, bitter old crone sometimes. And I am a bit of a wretched person sometimes, I don't work hard enough to maintain friendships and I'm a hermit when things get hard, and sometimes I just can't be bothered. But I do honestly care and love a lot of people. I love some people that I know no longer think of me, I love people who I see everyday, and I love people I've never met.

But when it comes to Love and of Being In Love, well...

I always assumed that you just knew when you were in love with a person, that it was as obvious as the days of the week, as your very own hands stretched out before you.

And it's not like that at all, is it? Being in love is quiet, and catches you unaware when you remember - like a small gesture, the cupping of your cheek or seeing them breathe beside you at night or the look in their eyes that you half-catch. Being in love is a background thing, that waits to remind you patiently of its existence, like your distant awareness of your limbs during the day when you aren't doing anything crucial with them.

It's not fireworks and torrid passion and burning intensity, although those definitely do happen too. Yet those things happen when you're not in love with someone, you just think you are. Sadly, been there, done that and what a fucking mess that was!

Being in love makes me feel a little embarrassed to phrase it like that. It sounds soppy and overly cute or even borderline nauseating. But I know I am. Because he's made me better for being with him, and made me worse in some ways (but only in little things).

But possibly the biggest thing that makes me know that I must be in love with him is how I will do what needs to be done for us and the thought of our future together. And I'm doing it, without a mental breakdown (just mini flaps of distress) and without anger or resentment because I see this as something we need to do, a hurdle that needs leapt over (or a wall that needs climbing really) in order for us to move forward with our lives.

It's not easy. But I feel the end result is going to be worth it. And even if it isn't, and we don't last forever like we want to, I know I'll be able to say to people in years to come that yes, I was definitely in love at least once in my life and it was real and I wasn't misguided and it wasn't one-sided.

And that's enough for me, at the moment. So I'll wait and continue with everything, and keep living until all this is done, and then we'll get to move on together. And I think it's going to be fantastic.

I realised that my last 8-10 entries have just been my tweets being reshipped. That is ridiculous but also accurate of my life.

It's been a while of interesting conversations. Particularly tonight, where we discussed transgender people, the issues relating to gender-reassignment surgery and the wider societal issues regarding people who don't fit into the heteronormative bubble that society dictates we should exist in.

[edit] It also contains the vague tale of Dave and myself.

Meme from the beautiful [livejournal.com profile] blindeadmcjones
* Leave me a comment saying "We used to be French but now we are underwater"
* I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
* Update your journal with the answers to the questions. Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

Here were her questions for me

1. You are granted the power to become a virtuoso in any instrument, a master of any art form, fluent in any language, a top athlete in any sport etc. Which one specifically would you choose?

2. Who is your favourite writer/author and why? Have they influenced your own writing?

3. Pick one line from a song that means a lot to you, and let us know why!

4. Tell me a little something-something about Dave. A habit, favourite flavour crisp, a way he makes you happy or mad or anything!

5. I know you've been super busy recently. How do you let your creativity out? Are you still drawing and writing? Or does it all get channelled into the amazing costumes I see on facebook?

My answers )

I was going to ramble about Valentines Day and university and music now but I have a doctor's appointment in an hour and a half and I need to grab things for the manga meet after, get dressed, take off nail polish, wash dishes and pick up an essay, so that's all for the minute!
klena: (like the blade you stain)
This is a grumpy!kat entry, wherein I am certain I am going to feel sorry for myself.

Before all that though. In case you hadn't heard, Saints won the Super Bowl WHO DAT. Taylor, a mate from animesoc, streamed the whole thing from his laptop to his TV and drank over the course of the night. It ended about 5am here. Uni on Monday was a particularly unpleasant experience from what he tells me. Poor lad. I didn't watch the game but my thoughts were there, especially considering the joy it's caused [livejournal.com profile] blondiusmaximus

whiny whine mope feeling sorry for self nonsense )

To conclude: gripe, whinge, grumble, sour face.

Although, [livejournal.com profile] hartclanpaladin, I got your lovely letter yesterday. the teabag has not been employed yet, but it will be. Thank you so much ♥

Anyone else want to get in on the grumbles? Or the hug times. Because I am all about the hugs? Hugs?
klena: (oh my god INTERNET RETARDS)
This is not the journal entry you are looking for! This is an obligatory "I am not dead! But not far off it!" entry.

Okay, so. Mega-ultra-insane recap?

- Leeds lost my change of programme form
- Leeds have locked my student email account because I was on a year out
- I can not register for this current year of student whilst account is locked
- Cannot register for english modules whilst account is locked
- There are problems with my student loan coming through
- I have no money
- I have rent to pay
- I have bills to pay
- I have books to buy
- I still have debt collectors after me
- I have no internet in the house
- I cannot return to university whilst I am on a year out for "health reasons" without a doctors note.
- I has no job

Which means that there is a lot I am trying to sort out within the confines of the university structure!

However, I can inform people about bills and stuff, I have emailed people about the modules and have been to the English department a lot, I am going to the doctors tomorrow as well as applying for a few jobs, the internet is being installed next Wednesday, the account is almost unlocked, I have spoken to the debt collectors and....um I has awesome [livejournal.com profile] lethalbutterfly in my lifes?

IN OTHER WORDS. I am around and here. But...I'm also not. Hopefully by the time we get the internet installed into the house next week, things will not be so insane and I will be rambling about the modules I am studying.

But until then, think positively for me!

First. G.I.P.

Second. Meme.

Journal naming.

What is the name and meaning behind your friends page?

Brothers on a hotel bed

From the song of the same name by Death Cab For Cutie. Because most of my LJ mates are family and sometimes reading their lj entries is like being curled up in a dark motel room, listening to the rain outside, resting on my arm and watching them talk.

What is the name and meaning behind your journal title?

A cat came at us speaking English

This is probably the nearest you'll get to something vaguely intelligent from me. The title is a quote from a critic who was writing about Emily Dickinson's poetry and described it "like a cat came at us, speaking English" which I thought was an amazing way to describe the unique nature of her poetry.

And she's so disjointed but the links are there if you want to see them and that's the way I feel sometimes. Which is bordering on emo for me, really. However! This is where the pun comes in. In my Japanese class, my best friend was talking to me one day and he called me "Neko". I asked him about it and he said that he had been calling me that in his head for a while now.

So I was given the name Neko or Neko-chan, which is the way quite a few people in my Japanese class know me and I respond to it. Neko, for those not in the know, is Cat in Japanese.

Kathryn - Kat.
Neko - Cat.

Do we see where the silly link is? Isn't it stupid? But that's why I chose that journal name. Because I'm Kat, and Cat.

What is the name and meaning behind your journal sub-title?

Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all

It's from "Simple And Clean", the Utada Hikaru song from the opening of Kingdom Hearts. And it's such a beautiful warning and almost a motto to live by. It's knowing the future is full of the unknown and the dangerous and you're going to get hurt - you know you are - but you're happy and willing for that because you know that having the experience is so much better than having the regret so you hold your head up and walk into the tidal wave.

What is the name and meaning behind your LJ name?

The lj name is Klena. (This is a very dull story!) When I first came to the INTERNETS, I was about 12 or 13, god 9 years ago!, and my mum was very insistent about people not knowing my real name. Internet security and paedofiles and the like. So I was watching some cop show with my mum late one night and one of the female cops actors name was Klea. So I fell in love with it and added an 'n' and became Klena.

Which became the name I have been known as for years now. With some very awesome exceptions.


Third.

I was thinking again.

I'm not looking for compliments - I'm honestly not. want to know about me and you. I want to know what name you know me by and what you think of me. Honestly. Please.
klena: (bitch)
My arm and hand keep trembling for no reason at all. Wierd.

Have just caught up on LJ. It didn't really surprise me that Camp Fuck You Die was most of it. ^_^

I am so tired.

I am going to bed.

I have to get up tomorrow to get my legs waxed. Eughk. I want to lie in.

Watch me whine.
klena: (Default)
As I have just told time I decided to go back and catch up on what I've missed on LJ since last Wednesday.

I've just gone back 820 memories.

BOLLOCKS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA~~~!!

This could take a while. ^_^

I -was- going to comment on the 12th because I AVOIDED THE FUCKING T.V and only found out how it went late last night and today but I'm not. Here are just the headlines:
- Tourists caught in riot
- Pensioners bus attacked returning from bingo
- Police attacked as parade passes
- Three hurt in city disturbances
- Bomb discovered on railway line
- Woman is raped while at Bonfire
- Officer's stolen weapon recovered.

And that was just the headlines. Fucking hell. Great fucking country I live in.

Anyways, fuck talking about that. Here, for my own amusement. [livejournal.com profile] trowicia felt guilty for not having read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in ages so I did a really ghetto quick summary. Here is said summary:

HERE, a summary of PS!

Harry - thinks he normal. Talks to snakes though. As you do. Magical letters appear. Drives adopted family crazy as the coconut. Giant appears - "'Ere 'arry, yar a Wizard." 'oh. Ok then.' Wizarding world is random. Goes to Hogwarts - shares food with Ron. Harry + Ron - friends.
Hermione = bossy. Boy's make Hermione cry - TROLL APPEARS - Defeat troll, trio formed. Mirror shows desires, Harry becomes an addict, Dumbledore cuts him off, Harry play Quiddich, Everyone thinks Snape is OMG!EV1L. Giant 3-headed dog, put him to sleep - pass puzzles and face unassuming twitching professor who happens to have The Dark Lord in the back of his head. Typical. Harry burns HIM PRECIOUS. Dumbledore smacks the professor down, Harry passes out. Is sent a toilet seat and sweeties. All is lollypops and candy-canes.
There's also some stuff at school and dragons. Your typical Scottish boarding school, I think.


Hahaha, this is why I shouldn't be let out in the world. Also, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] trowicia who I am going to spam with stuff about me when I come back from down the street:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your fic, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes office supplies."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal. Or not. Not like I'm gonna come after you with a gun if you don't.


Right. Kick Matthew out of his bed - then down the street I go~!
