Would you like to be shot or stabbed?

Or rogered gently into oblivion?

The last sounds nice, but I think I will take smothered by a warm comfy duvet.

I am still awake [sobs].

Go to bed, you poor thing! I would sing you a lullaby, but really don't want you to have nightmares...

I will imagine it performed by Ella Fitzgerald. I am still winding down, about to have a shower and see if that works. At least I start at 12 tomorrow.

Hot shower, drink, kitty, bed. Sleep well and sweet dreams, B.

blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:19 am (UTC)
Poor Vaysh! I hope that, like me, you have next week off and a good masseuse across the road. Let us not forget the excellent chocolate tart form the local bakery that has acted as a fine restorative!

It was dreadful. I even threatened to strangle a student at one point, not my finest hour! Solidly improving this week, thanks to daily sleep-ins!

hmmm, maybe I'll send Harry and Draco over (when I'm done with them) and they can give you multiple orgasms after which you can roll over and go to bed while they clean your house:D

*isn't that everyone woman's fantasy?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:21 am (UTC)
Yes, yes it is!

I used to have a boyfriend who would clean my house while I was out at work. I regularly kick myself for letting him go.

At least you will be doing something productive other than hitting *refresh screen*

HAHAHAHAHAHAH! That's right, I actually forgot all about the Worldcup palaver I was so stuffed. Remind me again why we do this to ourselves?
kestrelsparhawk: sparrowhawkkestrelsparhawk on May 22nd, 2008 07:56 pm (UTC)
My sympathies (from the lurker on the list). Kill you now? Much more of that, and we wouldn't have to.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:23 am (UTC)
The grammatically and logically marvellous lurker -- I was SO wishing that your powers extended to the muppets whose work I was editing.

Happily I have given myself this week off for sleeping and sewing. I seem to have accomplished bugger all due to waking up at 2pm every day. And yet, I'm not that upset by this ...
painless_jpainless_j on May 22nd, 2008 08:35 pm (UTC)
*hands a pillow* Yeah, familiarly shitty. Happens to me every two weeks. Pillow is your best friend, really. Or maybe two pillows and a blanket.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:25 am (UTC)
No, you're a genius, one pillow AND I SMOTHER THE BAD JOURNALISTS!!!

I am so sorry you have to do this regularly, I would be a slathering homicidal maniac after a few rounds of it. I was especially outraged when some of the young kids (about 20) were all trotting off at 11 claiming they were exhausted. I'm more than twice that old and just not up to it anymore.

Poor darling... that's the worst! What the hell were you doing?

Sleep...

No killing you, kind of like having you around. :D
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:28 am (UTC)
Will kill others first [squints evilly].

I was doing a paper with UTS students, who are generally completely slack bastards who do not believe in proofreading nor fact checking. I shall not hire them once they graduate! Well, three or four of them I might -- three had talent and one brought around jelly snakes.

This week has been spent dozing. It's lovely!

Oh, what a shame. You know what I did today? I laid on my couch betaing a fic that was hilarious and a joy to read, then I read a couple other really fantastic fics, then I went for a long walk with my son and dog, then I played with my son, then I snuggled on the couch with my dog and ate take out and watched my favourite shows until my husband came home. Oh, and I ate cheesecake. It was such a nice day.

What? You love me because I'm a terrible person, remember? *g*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:28 am (UTC)
You SO DESERVE your birthday present.
;-P
AutumnHearti_autumnheart on May 23rd, 2008 04:47 am (UTC)
Ouch - I can sympathize, and am glad you obviously got home safe after that effort. Sleep well, and may there not be any more all-nighters unless they're for fun.

- A.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:42 am (UTC)
I was thinking of you and my fellow ubertech friends. I do not know how you do it! (and yes, writing or sewing all-nighters hurt less!)
shadowclubshadowclub on May 23rd, 2008 04:56 am (UTC)
Don't die!!! *offers for Draco to sing to you, Draco refuses claiming he left his leather pants back in the Manor. Harry looks around with interest... best we leave them alone methinks*

Good luck!! Drink caffine! No, don't drink caffine, it's addictive (like crack and fanfic)!


... I can only blame this comment on my lack of sanity at the moment.♥
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 28th, 2008 09:43 am (UTC)
Your lack of sanity made my lack of sanity awfully happy that day, but my typing ability was out the window. Drank hot milk, went to bed, got up and did it all again.

Sounds like you're doing a good job of it yourself...
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 23rd, 2008 07:32 pm (UTC)
It was meant to be my week off, but a friend had to bail on a contract putting out a newspaper for a writer's festival. I might have done a 12 hour shift for the festival, but it's also being written by the journalism students at one of the local universities and counts towards their final results. So I was soft.

There are a few students who I would like to meet and suggest they take up accountancy, though. Evelyn War was my favourite blunder.

It's the downside of freelancing; every now and then you find yourself in over your head. Apparently I can actually lay out an entire short newspaper as well as edit it; I had no idea I possessed this skill until I did it. Happily, having ticked that box off, I need never do it again!
