So, almost six months since my last post and why am I here now?

Because I'm ill and stuck at home.

Maybe this is the kick up the backside I need to get back (re: start) updating this journal and caring for it like I should. I WANNA BE A NET-ADDICT TOO! I envy some of you, my friends, who manage to read and post every day. Community-spirit goes a long way I guess.

Anyway, I am now into my third week of being on/off work due to illness. It has so far ruined my social life by stopping me from going out clubbing (twice), to a friends wedding reception, cutting short my visit to my Mums for her birthday, and a missed gig (Evanescence at Brixton on Monday) to name just a few things I'm bitter about.

After taking a course of penicillin I've now been perscribed some antibiotics that I can start taking after this weekend if I'm still feeling ill. I've also now been told I have toncilitus (spelling?) so even if I got a chance (GOD - JUST A CHANCE!) to pull at B-Movie this weekend (if I am well enough to go--- grrrrr) I can't.

You watch. I'll go and have to fight people off me this week....... grrrr

All that said though life is going fairly well. I posted out the 2004 Release Schedule for SLA Industries to a number of news sites and mailing lists and have been talking to people and answering questions about both the SLA schedule and the other publishing plans that Cubicle 7 has.

Been reading through Philip Pullmans Northern Lights (first part in the His Dark Materials Trilogy) which is excellant and well worth the read. I'd never paid it any attention until it was voted into the top 21 in the BBC Big Read. I'd read (or knew) all the other books there but was surprised by His Dark Materials. I don;t know what I thought the series was beforehand (probably some dodgy third-rate fantasy) as I had seen advertising for the last in the series when it was released (Amber Spyglass) all over the tubes and magazines. Glad I eventually found it though. I've just blitzed Amazon buying up a load of his back catalog too.

Also (and this is probably the illness talking) been ploughing my way through the end of Friends Series 8 and Series 9. I used to be a big fan of Friends but stopped watching/buying them halfway through Series 8 for some reason. Now that I have a TV/DVD/Video in my bedroom and am feeling poorly I got hold of the missing videos and have started catching up. Must say they are a pretty good watch when you need cheering up as you wallow in bed.

Anyway, going to piss off now. I might speak to you all again tomorrow or in another six months time ;-p

Take care folks!

Wish I could but I can't at the mo. Waiting to hear back from a potential collaborator (sorry).

Fair enough :-)

Yeah, you're on board ;-p

I'll mail you off Journal.

It's alive!
Well, almost. Get well soon!

BTW, one of your posts reminded me that I still have three German RP books. I'm probably in London on the 29th, I could drop them off at the shop?

Re: It's alive!
Hi Ozzy,
Please do drop them off when your down in old London Town. I'm probably not around that day as:
a) It's a Saturday and I don't usually work Saturdays
b) I actually have most of that week off using up the rest of my holiday time.
Thanks, Angus

Re: It's alive!
Will do!

Re: It's alive!
That reminds me, was goign to ask you something ages ago but forgot: can LG get hold of specific RP books that are out of print but lurking in distributer's warehouses?
Nov. 12th, 2003 04:41 pm (UTC)
Re: It's alive!
If the distributor has it lurking in their warehouse the chances are we already have it in stock. We have a bit of a completist attitude like that ;-p

Let me know what you're after and I can have a nose around for you though.

Re: It's alive!
In this instance, I SEVERELY doubt you have a copy (I've checked several times in the past). It's a book for the Changeling game that's a resource for Germany and surrounding areas. In German. Found it once on the net (and there were still copies available from the distributor. Can't for the life of me remember the name (other than it was 3 words beginning with T - trolls, trees and [something else] or Deutsch to that effect.

Re: It's alive!
I know the one you mean. It is published by Feder & Schwert in Germany and is a sourcebook largely based around Grimm's Fairy Tales.

I can't remember the exact name but I do have a copy (or rather Ozzy currently has it but I should be getting it back later this month when Ozzy comes to London - see earlier message from him ;-).

You can certainly borrow my copy if you like. I can try and get hold of a copy for you as I know some of the German guys.

Let me know.

Re: It's alive!
I wasn't too impressed with the book, they could have done so much more. There's a bit of history, some historic NPCs connected to the Dreaming and IIRC only one(?) new kith.
Nov. 13th, 2003 03:22 pm (UTC)
Re: It's alive!
New kith? Arse. Don't need any more...

Anyway Angus - as long as the book doesn't cost £50 or something then I'd love to purchase a copy if you can get hold of one for me :-)

Re: It's alive!

In German? How the hell are you going to read it? VW? Mercedes-Benz?
Are you a polyglot?

Re: It's alive!
Hi there :-p

This is going back a few months..... but do you still have the German Changeling book?
Jun. 11th, 2004 11:27 am (UTC)
Re: It's alive!
'Course I do. I can see it as I type in fact ;-)
Jun. 11th, 2004 11:53 am (UTC)
Re: It's alive!
that's cool. I was just checking to make sure.

You don't happen to have a couple of German cthulhu books there too do you?

Re: It's alive!
alas no
Jun. 11th, 2004 11:31 pm (UTC)
Re: It's alive!
Nevermind. I have a sorta feeling I have seen them recently on one of the bookshelves here. I'll have to just take the effort to take a closer look :-p

Hope to see you soon!
