Time flies, huh? Except the last few months haven't been so much of a 'time-flies-when-you're-having-fun' sort of thing, but more a 'time-flies-when-you're-insanely-busy' period. Too busy even to procrastinate. If anyone says it's easy to do a Masters while working (and travelling) full time, I suggest you run away screaming. It will save all sorts of pain later.

Still, the workload has lightened up this weekend (next week/end is going to be a killer... and yes, I am procrastinating right now), and I have a shiny new ADSL2 internet connection, so here I am. Watching the new Dollhouse trailer (oh HELL YES), counting the minutes until I can watch the Supernatural finale (*whimpers*), and pondering a sudden desire for long, plotty X-Men and Buffy crossovers, even ones where Buffy turns out to be the long-lost-sister/cousin/niece/other random relation. And also indulging in a desire to over-use parentheses. Because I can.

It's nice to be back on the internet.

(And if this shows up twice, it's because my shiny new internet isn't being all that shiny. Grr.)

No posts for months and now twice in a night? Yep, you can tell I'm procrastinating, but this was too good not to share. From the brilliant Neil Gaiman:
(quoted wholesale)

"I know that David Tennant's Hamlet isn't till July. And lots of people are going to be doing Dr Who in Hamlet jokes, so this is just me getting it out of the way early, to avoid the rush...

"To be, or not to be, that is the question. Weeelll.... More of A question really. Not THE question. Because, well, I mean, there are billions and billions of questions out there, and well, when I say billions, I mean, when you add in the answers, not just the questions, weeelll, you're looking at numbers that are positively astronomical and... for that matter the other question is what you lot are doing on this planet in the first place, and er, did anyone try just pushing this little red button?"


I love Neil Gaiman. It makes me regret never being able to get past my mental block on comics, otherwise I would rush out and buy everything he'd ever written, ever.

(P.S Just watched Supernatural finale. GUH. Just... GUH. They expect me to wait 3 months until the next season? But then, given that this show has had longer mid-season hiatuses (hiatusi?), I guess I shouldn't be complaining too much.)
