themegaloo: (SH- Sherlock/John- walking)
So uh, as anyone I was able to text or anyone who follows my twitter or facebook or foursquare is PROBABLY AWARE, I got back from DragonCon tonight around 9pm. Yeah, this is not when I planned to be home. Yeah, I was supposed to work today. No, that didn't happen. DAMN YOU, WEATHER!! Flight from ATL got delayed so badly that there was no way I'd make the connecting to Home and there wasn't a later flight for that and YADDA YADDA YADDA so I spent forever on the phone in the airport talking to my parents, my boss, my friends still at con and the airline so I could come home TODAY instead. It was madness. I am exhausted. But you know what?

IT IS ALWAYS SO FREAKING WORTH IT.

My pictures are up on facebook, I'm working on getting them onto photobucket as well but there is no way I'm coding anything tonight as I'm barely coherent from exhaustion. My costumes went off beautifully, I'm on the BBCA webpage sitting in line for the Night Terrors screening (!!!!) I have no voice from shouting WOULD YOU CARE FOR SOME TEA?! EXTERMINATE! PERCOLATE! and other such things all day Saturday and I am exceedingly broke until I get paid Friday.

Other things: MY PHONE SURVIVED, NO FOUNTAIN SWIMMING FOR MY PURSE THIS YEAR! (thank christ) I'm already planning MOAR COSTUMES for next year, some of which will be more feasible than others (someday I will sew well enough to make Kaylee's cupcake dress, I swear I will pull that one off someday), sleep was, as ever, a fallacy to be ignored unless forced (I woke up still a Dalek at 10am Sunday morning because I apparently hit a TOTAL AND COMPLETE WALL OF EXHAUSTION and haven't slept much since) and I have discovered that I am not a coherent fangirl in the LEAST. I passed GDL in a hamster tube and ran into a door. And then when I finally met Sherlock fandom, oh good lord, that was not coherency in any way shape or form (for which I apologize!! I hope I proved I can be coherent over the course of the FIVE HOUR SHERLOCKFEST).

Speaking of, this made my Sunday night Awesome and Strangely Sober Compared to the Rest of the World.


Still laughing at that. Now I really need to wind down and, you know, sleep. But I really want my pictures to finish uploading to photobucket too. Damn. Only 28 to go at this point? HA! FINISHED PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES

COHERENCY IS FOR LATER. Mostly, I had an awesome weekend and I'm home safely despite storms and tornadoes and hurricanes, oh my.

edit: way too much capslock in this sorry.
themegaloo: (DW- TARDIS- Cardiff)
So as I think we all know, my phone went for a little swim in the Marriott fountain and thus I had to get a new one (RIP, Palm Pre. I will use that insurance on you eventually.)

Prior to it going swimming, my text message alert noise was from Torchwood 201 (BEEP BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP BEEP [....] That...never beeps.) I decided, however, to let that be a thing of the palm. Plus, it was quiet and kinda long for how many messages one can get back to back. Hearing it layer was sorta trippy.

I'm currently using a Blackberry Curve and mostly liking it. The lack of a touch screen still freaks me out, but the keyboard is a bit easier (loathe as I am to admit it). However, EVERYONE AND THEIR BROTHER SEEMS TO HAVE A BLACKBERRY.

I mean, seriously. Have you ever been in a room with multiple people, all with the same message alert tones? ONE PERSON GETS A MESSAGE, EVERYONE GETS EXCITED. IS IT MINE, IS IT MINE?

(This might only be a problem because the two people I am around most in life--my mother and my best friend here in Greenville--both have blackberries.)


POINT IS, it had to change. So I went on the BBC website and download a ton of little noises from them. And then went and found the Doctor Who theme song. These are the noises my phone now makes:

• Ringer: Theme song
• Text: TARDIS
• Email: that gong from the end of every episode of New Who
• BBM: Sonic Screwdriver
• AIM: EXTERMINATE!

There are two results of this. One: When it goes off for the first time around someone, they are ALL COMPLETELY CONFUSED. Two: When it goes off, especially for a text, I am filled with unholy glee.

Seriously. It's like I have a TARDIS in my pocket. How is that NOT awesome?
