drakyndra: The Music Meister demands you sing! (Star Wars: Original Trio)

So I've been sort of terrible about posting to LJ this year. Whoops.

My excuse is mostly that LJ is sort of dying now, but I do still read other people's posts, I just end up commenting elsewhere mostly. (Like Tumblr.)

Anyway, I'm just posting to say I am off on another overseas trip, which you may have already heard about, to Burma/Myanmar. The best name is a better of some dispute.

Oh, and then a few days in Singapore.

If you want to hear more about the trip, when my hotel wifi is decent I'll try to show up on Facebook (under my real name) or twitter, so feel free to check those out.

Be back on the 20th of December, so until then peace out!

Or, you know, enjoy the new Star Wars trailer. (I can flail before I leave.)
Oh amusement.

So, I put out my presents for [livejournal.com profile] fa11ing_away and the HouseMatt, since I honestly have no idea if I'm going to get another chance to see those two before, well, Christmas, what with heading off tomorrow.

So, when [livejournal.com profile] fa11ing_away got home from work, and started frantically rushing around to put my present together, she didn't have any cards left.

So, instead she drew my one. With a chibi Ed Elric in a Santa hat on the front.

It's really quite adorable. I'll have to take a picture or scan or whatever at some point.

Yes, it was blatantly inspired by the fact that when she asked for a few minutes to get things I ready, I told her I'd kill time watching the newest FMA episode.

And now I must pack for Christmas, since I've scrounged a lift with The Sister and her BFF tomorrow morning. God, I am getting so damned fed up with all this packing.

No idea how likely I am to update/read my flist over the next week or so. Depends on how busy I am, and how much Internet time I have.

But Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/[insert holiday greeting of your choice here] all!

Well then, in approximately an hour, Mother Dearest will be picking me up and we will head out to the airport for our exciting and wonderful trip to Cambodia and Singapore.

Which means I am currently sitting around, eating lunch, and trying to remember what I've forgotten to pack. Which is just as useful as you can imagine, really. (Any useful suggestions must come in the next hour, please.)

...Incidentally, it appears that the not-so-long and glorious tradition of Important Australian NewsTM occurring every time I go overseas is also being upheld. So, when we went to Thailand, it was election results; for Egypt, it was the bushfires. And this time, it seems to be the impending implosion of the Liberal Party.


Anyway, until I get back on the 9th of December (Australian time), I shall be MIA and mostly Internetless. I'll probably be posting updates to my Twitter - which incidentally I have set up a feed to my LJ for - if you want to know what I'm up to.

Unfortunately, I'll have no idea what anyone else is up to, fandom or otherwise. So feel free to drop a link to any posts or anything interesting if you want me to see it when I get back, because I doubt I'll be backreading 10 days worth of flist.

So... see you guys in a bit! *waves*

So, very shortly, my Mum is due to arrive and I shall be toddling off to the airport, and onwards to land of Pyramids.

This is just a quick post for me to say toodles to all for the next few weeks - I get back here on the 20th February - since I won't be hearing from you guys in a while.

So feel free to drop a line in this post if there's something you want to tell me/want me to know/anything of vital fannish importance occurs. (When I was in Thailand, we found out Rose was coming back to Doctor Who. Who knows what'll pop up this time?)

If you want to know what I'm currently up to, check out what I'm Twittering about. The LJ feed of that seems to be working okay, too...

So... that's that, really. Hear from you all again on the 20th, when I shall start with Egypt stories and picspams and attempting to catch up on everything that's gone down in fandom in my absence.

Well then.

As of tomorrow I am heading back to the farm for Christmas (Yes, my family does actually live on a farm. There were sheep and everything) and I won't be back until some time or another on the weekend.

Anyhow, being as it's all farm-like - and also, you know, Christmas - I'll be out of contact with all you guys for a bit. Unless you text me. (Mobile calls won't go through, either, the reception sucks)

And I'll be busy with that strange and wondrous thing that is a family Christmas. Complete with dodgily decorated actual pine trees, strange and unexpected presents, and cheap paper hats in crackers. Though being Australia, it's probably going to end up as ridiculously hot as today was.

So, Merry Christmas to everyone. Or Happy Holidays if that's what you prefer.

Feel free to let me know if anything exciting happens while I am away.

Well, in about half an hour or so - whenever Mum shows up - I shall be heading off to the airport, and in the general direction of Thailand.

And that means I won't be having any internet access for a bit over a week - I'll be back early afternoon on Monday 3rd December.

In any case, I am pretty much packed now, with all the essentials (I hope...), and ready to go.

Oh, and also noting that I really won't be arsed going to backread through an entire week's worth of flist, so if there's any posts you particularly want me to read, links to check out and so on and so forth, drop a link here and I'll take a look when I get back. Or if it's something confidential, tell me you have something you want me to see, and I'll comment when I get back and we can have a screened convo.

If you deign to think of me, remember, I shall be lounging on the beaches of Thailand. *cackles evilly*

So, this is me signing off temporarily, and saying toodles to you all.
