Hi thar!

Week of Doing Too Much is finally over! I was so tired last night that I ducked out of my evening out with friends at 9.30 in favour of bed - principlely because I had to work at the university Open Day today. ZOMG Open Days. What is there to say apart from that Open Days are the most tiring and intense work days EVAR. The fifty minutes where I give a talk in a lecture theatre is the part of the day I use to relax, which says something! I think it went well, though my cheek muscles ache from smiling so much (I think a smile makes a huge difference when you're helping people out, saddo that I am - big public events where I need to be nice to people tend to bring out the best in me).

Lay on the sofa all evening in my pyjamas and watched Total Wipeout (tee hee!), Top Gear and Take Me Out - the kind of lazy evening I've been craving allllll week. And now, early bed time. Tomorrow, we shall see a Gina who can actually DO things apart from a) moan about how tired she is b) moan about how much she needs sleep.

But first, I shall divert a few brain cells to an idle activity I've been wanting to do since I saw something on DA this morning - creating "iPod playlists" for my OCs (as in music they'd have on their playlist rather than music that makes me think of them). Shame most of them have crap taste in music! *eyes the character who actually likes rap music with distaste*

Oh yeah, and a funny Dragon Lady update from Friday:
Dragon Lady: *storms through the office* I NEED FRUIT.
Me: *offers her some grapes, two pears and a banana (all fruit donated to me by colleages as my liking for fruit is well known)*
Dragon Lady: I don't want those! I'm going to steal from Robyn instead! *steals one of the graphic designer's apples*

An iPod playlist of music your OCs would listen to? That's such a cute idea and I want to do that now, too XD I think I'll do that tomorrow.

But I'm glad to read you survived the week and could enjoy a lazy evening ♥ but one of your characters likes rap music? That's creepy XD

And the Dragon Lady is quite strange... I would've taken the banana instead of an apple XDD

I stole the idea from Nuisance on DA^^ Sadly Simon is the character who has particularly AWFUL taste. I'm disappointed in his musical choices!

Dragon Lady has a thing about apples. Apparently she goes round the office stealing them.

Hope you catch up on much-needed rest today ^^

Never underestimate the power of Total Wipeout to make your day a little brighter! XD
