Popping by to say I hoped I managed to thank everyone personally for their birthday messages. They meant a lot so here's an extra thank you! <33
I also want to give a shout out to the lovely mods at spn_littlebro
. Especially to ayane42
for taking over the newsletter
compiling while I'm on a hiatus. And to nahemaraxe
for doing an amazing job with the littlebro tumblr.
I'm currently acting in a show called "Prepare to Meet Thy Tomb" (yes, it's as silly as the name suggests! But hopefully entertaining *g*). I'm playing a "flamboyant" novelist. It's so nice to be involved in my local theatre again. It was once my home away from home. Going back has been a good step for me.
I'm currently reading the Captive Prince trilogy. I've just finished the second book and I ADORE it! SO SO much! I almost don't want to read the third one because I don't want it to end - but I'm also chomping at the bit to get started.
Australia had their election this weekend. And, as like many places in the world, the electorate sent a "message" to the major parties that they're not that happy with the status quo. The results are too close to call at the moment - and in the end we may end up with a hung parliament (where neither party has the majority to govern on their own). The downside is we've ended up with more rightwing (read that as racist) independents, which concerns me. I felt like a had to do something on the day and as I am a strong supporter of many of The Green's policies (climate change, marriage equality, end to our horrendous immigration policies etc), I helped them out on the day. I had hoped there would be more of a swing to The Greens, but (for some reason) people just find it too difficult to "trust" them and put their votes elsewhere. But, as I said to a guy on the day, we can't give up. The future is too important. /soapbox
I'm exercising a bit more and still not eating sugar. Cutting out sugar in my diet has been one of the best things I've done (well, perhaps second to stopping smoking). It gives me a sense of control and I feel so much better for it. I feel confident that I can stick to this way of eating (especially when the lolly box comes out at rehearsals - saying no is hard, but ultimately worth it *g*).
*hugs* to all. I'm sorry I am missing posts (though I have been trying to check things out when I can). I am going to bookmark fic for when I've finished King's Rising. :)
