[1] Game of Thrones   [2] NaNoWriMo   [3] Jam Drops

It's almost that time of year again when I shut everything out and try and get 50,000 words out in a month. I thought I would actually be more prepared this time around and purchased Ready. Set. Novel! a while ago. I thought I would get bored of it if I'm going to be honest but the quirky little exercises have managed to keep my attention so far. It really is helping me to delve a lot deeper and flesh out scenarios that I wouldn't have bothered with before. Looking forward to, though also slightly dreading, NaNoWriMo this year - we'll just have to see how it goes. At least it'll keep me busy.

I finally got around to making Jam Drops last week! Finally! Ever since I saw Retro Mummy's recipe it's something I've been meaning to get around to. Mine might not have ended up as perfectly shaped as her's but they still tasted damn good; they barely lasted 48 hours in this house so I'll take that as a good sign. Thinking about making Brownie Cookies this afternoon, they looked bloody good last time, it's a shame I didn't get one.

'Some chick actually got you off hunting, huh? That's one rare creature. How did you meet this unicorn? You fell in love with a unicorn. It was beautiful, then sad, then sadder. I laughed, I cried, I puked in my mouth a little. And honestly, I kind of get it. Go. Save your brother... and my unicorn.' - Meg Masters

[1] ArdentArgent   [2] Halloween   [3] Castiel

I finally found a replacement ring that I absolutely love thanks to Etsy. It says 'HEY ASS BUTT!' on the inside - definitely perfect. I can't recommend this seller enough; considering all of the rings are made to order I still received it way before the estimated delivery date and it's such good quality. It would be nice to have Cas watching over me but I suppose this'll have to do until I find my Unicorn.

And on that note I really hope Meg comes back in Season 9. I would like to think she is in Purgatory just living it up with Benny, that would be a crazy friendship. Though my love of Meg is always then tainted by the fact that she was the one that killed Jo and Ellen. But then you have to look at the fact that she actually applied for the Nurse job to look after Cas - she was the only one that actually had patience with him as well. He saw her in her truest form and didn't care. Fangirling over.

I was torn between being Abaddon or Harley Quinn for Halloween but I finally decided on the latter. I can't wait. I've bought the costume and played around with makeup, I just can't wait. Any excuse for fancy dress and I'm in. Abaddon would have been fun to do but it was just too much faffing around with makeup... plus the top she wears I could only find for £20 so that wasn't going to happen; I refuse to spend that on a top that I'll only wear to cosplay her and cover in fake blood. I've wanted this Harley costume for an incredibly long time as well so I guess it did make sense to just go with that one seeing as I could actually kind of afford it right now.

I think Boondock Saints is what I need right now - a bit of Sean Patrick Flanery, Billy Connolly and Norman Reedus always manages to cheer me up.
