You know, I've forgotten all the smileys now. OK, time for the annual "What I've been up to" thing, for those out there still wondering.

1. I spent my 22nd birthday on Brighton Beach with friends, eating chips and getting yelled at by the overaggressive deckchair man (there are pictures on my Flickr account).

2. I went to Comic Con, whereupon I discovered how loud Quentin Tarantino is, how cool Samuel L. Jackson is, how a room of a few thousand geeks can smell, what Stormtrooper Elvis looks like, and who Karen Traviss is.

3. I got addicted to World of Warcraft. What a game! I hit Level 60 on my Tauren Warrior earlier this week.

4. I tried to like duck, and failed.
4a. I rediscovered the tastiness of beef!

5. I kept my job, and thus, tired of fighting on the internet. When you're working with people who complain and fight all day, there's a certain weariness to doing it when you get home.

6. I got better at photography. My Flickr photostream has had over 17,000 views since January. And following on from that, I became a extremely familiar with South Bristol street art.

7. I damaged my knee quite severely after buckling under my coworkers demands to go on a night out with them. Ended up on crutches for a month, physio for 3 months, and I'm walking with a pronounced limp. Still got pain, still doing the exercises physio gave me.

8. Even though I have someone I call my boyfriend (and I value him highly), the distance makes the relationship feel less serious. And I intend not to repeat the pattern of the last relationship I had, in which tiny mistakes ruined a Very Good Thing, so I am OK with this. As you can tell, that last relationship looms a little in the background, and I'm still waiting to tie things up. Will happen soon though.

9. Following on from that, I have been planning an extended stay in San Diego next March. It's expensive, I'm doing it with no one else's help and so it will be a lot more gratifying, I hope. I won't feel so guilty about watching Oprah and eating sushi for a month.

10. Moleskines for the win! Best notebook ever!

And that's all I can think of for now. Now I'm off to catch up on everyone's lives. Hope all is well with y'all.

Hello again. You'd already forgotten the smileys the last time you dropped back here briefly. smiley - biggrin I had wondered what you were up to and visted your blog just last week (but didn't comment of course).

You make it sound (in #7) rather like your co-workers sat on you to make you go out with them and that that's when your knee buckled. I assume it was really an incident much later on in the proceedings though. I hope you get better soon. Do you think your physiotherapist was giving you sensible advice or might you be better off consulting someone else?

Ah, so I forgot that I had forgotten the smileys. That's even worse! My mind is going with my age!

Re: #7, my coworkers made me *dance*. Whilst plying me with drinks! Of all things! And my right leg went in two different directions (worst pain ever) and I ended up being carried out by a big sexy French man from the club.

I think the physio I had was pretty good. They got me walking again (I managed to lose the knowledge of how to use my leg), lessened the pain. But I still need to do a lot of work on my own, and I'm not progressing as fast as I could be. The doctor at the hospital did say that it would take about a year for it to heal completely. Just glad I didn't tear a ligament!

Well, knees *are* very tricky things. The joint's not meant to go in some of the directions it might end up going - particularly if you were attempting to dance while drunk! I do my dancing sober. smiley - biggrin
