Oh god. I don't have any time to myself at the moment. One week in and my dissertation has taken over my life. When I'm not emailing people frantically trying to arrange things, or speaking to my tutor, or trying to buy a dictaphone, I am in the library. And when I am not doing any of those things I am trying to search and apply for a job for the rest of my life.
D: D: D:
My jaw hurts, which means I have been grinding my teeth in my sleep, which is a sure sign of stress for me. The rest of the degree wasn't this bad; why do I feel like I have to do everything at once now?
The bathroom needs cleaning and the toilet's all limescaley and I don't have time to do it. I've got loads of anime to catch up on and I don't have time to watch it. I've got a lovely Tieria doodle that is crying out to be inked and coloured and I don't have time to ink and colour it ;_;
Also, I haven't been getting nearly enough sleep lately, which, as I'm sure I have drummed into you all by now, is not cool, and is a big deal. ILU sleep; I wish I could spend more time with you...
Conclusion: POOR ME. (note to self: get over it, or at least get a grip. Jesus.)
In other news I seem to be spending my weekends gallivanting around the country at the moment. This past weekend I went to Theresa and Colin's engagement party. How exciting. I'm well excited for them.
And then, the day after, we went to Great Yarmouth to play a round of crazy golf on the beach.
And while golfing, Theresa asked Deborah and I to be her bridesmaids.
And then she asked me to be her chief bridesmaid.
I was not expecting that at all. I am completely made up. I'm even more excited now. I can't wait! What an honour! I won't let you down Theresa, I swear! (Now to get all anally retentive on the wedding plans, hahaha.)
Questions I am clearly not interested in, but secretly I actually am:
1. What colour will our dresses be?
2. Who gets to be the best man?
And then Theresa, Deborah and I all managed to get a hole-in-one on the same hole! It was an amazing day.
And this weekend I'm off to the wedding of one of my cousins. I am going to keep a hawk's eye on her bridesmaids, let me tell you.
(All this talk of weddings keeps making me think of this photoshopped picture. Tieria looks so pretty in a wedding dress *single tear*)
I was asking my course-buddies about it yesterday, because I’m not sure that Theresa would like a stripper. But one of my course friends said very loudly “YOU HAVE TO GET A STRIPPER", so maybe I should get one anyway. I shall try to sneakily sound out what Theresa wants.
p.s. Did I tell you that I’ve got another wedding to go to in October? Another cousin. But no alcohol allowed at the reception; the family’s not too happy about that.

I cant believe you get invited to another wedding AND you are chief bridesmaid!!!! im so jealous!!!
As chief bridesmaid you have to order a secret stripper dont you know?
Why else do you think I’m interested in who the best man is?
That’s a very interesting question. And one I can’t answer at all. I have no idea what Tieria is, or what his gender might be, or even if his name is Tieria (which it probably isn’t).
All the publicity for the show, including interviews with the director, is being very coy as to what Tieria is. They specifically don’t mention whether he is male or female, or how old he is. I’ve a feeling that what Tieria is, whatever it is, is going to be very pivotal to the plot of the second season (starting this October), so hopefully we’ll find out then.
As far as I’m concerned, all this ambiguity means that I can enjoy more fanart of Tieria in a dress \o/
I would convince you to watch Gundam00, but I know you don’t have much time and I’ve recc’ed loads of stuff to you already. Nevertheless, if you ever feel like a bit of giant robot fighting, this show is a good one to go for. (Code Geass has giant robot fighting too, but I’m of the opinion that Gundam00 is just that little bit better. Also, Code Geass doesn’t have Tieria in it.)

You know the chief bridesmaid gets “knobbed” by the best man, so he better be a looker!
(I use the word “knobbed” because somebody at work used it today with me. Yes a German. He read it in Nick Hornby! We’re a very cultured place you know!)

I didn’t even watch Gundam and I love this picture. So very pretty. So what is Tieria?!!!
