I've been talking to Anna about how I feel like I should make a damned effort to make this LJ about a little more than random work angst, squee, and porn, because dammit, I used to talk about personal stuff and "deep" fandom thoughts at least, and I just don't do that anymore, in part because I do most of my LJing and stuff frmo work, and I can barely manage to finish a thought that's actually work-related these days, let alone anything else, without getting interrupted or otherwise distracted, and when I'm home I usually don't remember what I wanted to write, and get distracted just from wandering around my flat, and it's partially because most of the personal stuff I talk to Anna or Sarah or Mags about, but still, I'm going to make a concious effort to write something of some substance at least once a week, and to make entry-ing part of my routine.
Speaking about my routine, ( cut to spare your friendslist )
And speaking of more personal things, I'm thinking of giving up not going to church for Lent. We'll see how this goes. I'm kinda terrified, which is fairly ridiculous as the church (or "church", depending on your definition of church) I'd be going to is a Quaker Meeting, and if there's a less threatening church-type organisation out there in the Christian spectrum, I've yet to find it. But still.
Somewhat related to this, I recently had cause to inform my dad that he was not allowed to leave an inheritance. Not that I think my brothers and I would turn into the sort of people I keep reading about on EtiquetteHell, with the rental vans to empty the house an hour after someone dies and shit like that, but since the death of my grandfather a few years ago, my dad and his siblings have inherited what I almost hope is one of the most complicated cases of inheritance crap ever. Not that involves a lot, mind you, just a house (which has now, just to add further complications, been bought by the governement beause they're building something there -- I'm sure there's a proper English word for this, but even the Dutch term escapes me), but the whole case now involves 50-odd people, spans five generations (including mine, although on the other side of the family), and two notaries (original one retired, left the case to his son-in-law, who is now desperately trying to get the case done with and closed because he's retiring), and I swear to god, if my dad dies before this thing is settled and leaves my brothers and I to deal with this, I will have his corpse enbalmed and refuse to bury him until it's settled. Remember folks: if you love your kids, spend your monney before you die!
And finally: ( Daily Magnetic Prose ) I feel like I need to note that this is just the result of me grabbing both "fight" and "drama" at random, not any reflection of my life at the moment. :D
