I've just signed off on my FIRST EVER NaNoWriMo win! I'm so fucking pleased with myself, you have no idea. I really really wasn't sure I'd make it! I'm so doing this next year :D

I don't know what went wrong
If I did, wouldn't matter 'cause
It just wasn't enough

You know when the moment comes
To be strong, show resistance
That's what we're led to believe

When the big world falls apart
And you think that the feeling will linger
You need somewhere to start
I will be here (I will be here)

You don't mind if life's not that pretty
It will soon disappear
It will be miles away
Away from here

When the big world falls apart
And you think that the feeling will linger
You need somewhere to start
I will be here

And when it all seems the falls apart
You can't breath
You don't know what you're thinking
You need somewhere to start
I will be here.

I know a few of you might know what's going on here. Figured it was worth asking.

Ever since I installed (and then pretty much immediately uninstalled) PandaHome, whenever I exit an application on my HTC Magic (running 1.6), I get an error message saying "Sorry! The process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." It then requires me to force close the home screen and reload it. Everytime. It's making my phone slow and difficult to use.

Someone tell me there's a way to fix this. I'm about ready to do a factory reset and start from scratch, but I don't want to put myself through that if it's not going to work. Halp meh?

Obvious title is obvious. Am using my LJ for much less frequent and much more personal posts, so am removing some people I don't feel like I'm connecting with very much. Don't take it personally, unless I've already made it clear that I mean it personally.

Would anyone like a free TV? 28" Widescreen CRT. Perfect working condition. Has a remote. To be collected from Colliers Wood anytime after Thursday and before the 28th of May.

Pass it on.

Dear Boris,

OK, I get it. I understand. The tube is in a bit of a pickle, and sometimes you have to close it down to make sure it keeps running us rats back and forth to the race we so thrive on. I understand that your staff work terribly hard and try to disrupt things as little as possible, but what I do not understand is the following:

1. Why is it so difficult for you to employ IT staff who are actually capable of updating the TfL website correctly and in a timely fashion? Yes, I know you write messages on those lovely boards and put them in all the tube stations, but that assumes that we have actually been into a tube station between the time it goes up and the time we have to travel. Update the fucking website. Please.

2. Why is it that when you close down the Northern Line between Morden and Kennington do you only run a rail replacement bus service between Morden and Clapham Common? Clapham Common has no other tube lines going through it, no overground line, and the worst traffic in the known history of mankind. And it's two stops away from where the Northern Line starts up again. Really, how hard is it to make your rail replacement bus go TWO MORE BLOODY STOPS?

3. Please explain to me the theory behind hiring a man whose job it is to stand at the tube stations and distribute information regarding the lack of service, who then, when you ask him to repeat himself because he was talking too quietly, turns around and shouts "Don't get arsey with me, missy!" and then ignores you?

4. How is it that not a single member of TfL staff (perhaps with the exception of the quiet/shouty man) were aware of a signal failure that occured over an hour previously that was causing severe disruption to the Victoria Line, especially given the fact that said staff were advising passengers to take a train to Victoria as it would be quicker than getting two buses to Kennington? Trust me, it wasn't. Even when you take into consideration the roadworks on Balham High Street.

5. And how, after all this bloody nonsense, can you not fix the second lift at Kennington station? Surely that's why you close down the ruddy tubes in the first place! I should not ever have to queue for 15 minutes to get out of a tube station at midnight.

Yours, with no love at all,
Annoyed of Colliers Wood.

(It was TOTALLY worth going out though - Hot Tub Time Machine is many many flavours of awesome, and highly recommended. GO SEE IT.)

I am knitting stripey or plain iPod/smartphone/PDA socks to keep my hands busy. Anyone want one? Won't cost you anything (except maybe postage if you want it sent internationally), and will give me something to do.

Colours are limited - I have black, red, blue, purple, dayglo varigated, green and probably one or two other colours if I go hunting, ask if you have a specific request, and I'll go looking. I will pick colours at random if you don't specify. Let me know what the dimensions of your gadget is as well, so I can ensure a snug fit :)

First come, first served!
