Day 25 - Would you rather date someone plain with an amazing personality or someone beautiful with a plain personality?

I think this is an easy-peasy one... while good looks are all very nice and pretty, a relationship is built on shared interests and values, and I, for one, couldn't possibly share my life with someone who didn't make me laugh.

So, yes, personality wins out every time!

Day 14 - Provide pictures of five celebrity crushes:

Okay, well I only have one celebrity crush going on at the moment,  and that's the way it's been for a few years now.
Just in case you were any way unclear, this gentleman is my current celebrity crush, and likely to remain so for the foreseeable future ...

And what better picture set to round off this lovely meme, but my birthday pictures from the weekend ..

I spent a fabulous weekend away at the Sci Fi Weekender event at Pen-y-Chain, near Pwllhelli, north Wales with [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams and her poor long suffering Spn-widow husband, Paul, [livejournal.com profile] xlittleangx and [livejournal.com profile] edina_clouds128.

A great time was had by all!

Here are the mugshots ...

Hugging the Tardis, in my Star Trek shirt with my Harry Potter bag and my Supernatural Wallet.  I was a multi-fandom kinda girl this weekend!

A rogue's gallery! )

What with work, and birthdays and all the Livejournal strife that's been going on lately, I've so dropped the ball with the two memes that I've been running, so this is me picking the first one of them back up again! (This will also give me the opportunity to test the crosspost to Dreamwidth too!)

You see, a couple of lovely peeps give me Amazon vouchers for my birthday, and so I've been browsing on and off looking for something interesting or useful to buy with them, I mean, a new camera case and a red kettle and toaster set are on my shopping list.

The I remembered something that was mentioned in a comment on one of my posts, so my search for inspiration went off at a different tangent

Then this happened ... )

Day 7
dizzojay: (Dean)
It's been a difficult day here in the UK listening to the terrible events that have been unfolding in London today.  My heart goes out to the people who lost their lives, and those they left behind.  But here in the UK, we're no strangers to terrorism and we're not afraid of it either, so carrying on regardless is the order of the day.

This being the case, a few happy pictures are very much the order of the day:

Well, hellooooo there!

Happiness! )

Day 6 - A band or musician that is important to you

I've always loved Queen.  Roger Taylor, the drummer was one of my first crushes back in the early eighties, and Freddie Mercury was the ultimate showman and he was backed up by three of the most brilliant musiciams ever to take the stage.  As far as I'm aware, Queen have never produced a song I didn't like.

I would have loved to go to a Queen concert, but I never had anyone to go with, and so it didn't happen.  Then, when I first met Mr D in May 1991, one of the first things we established was a mutual love of Queen and we decided that we would go to a Queen concert the next time they toured.

Then a couple of months later Freddie Mercury died, and the world lost one of the most gifted performers who ever lived :(

I know Queen have continued in one form or another since Freddie's departure, but I prefer to think of them as the complete unit that they were back in the 70's and 80's, so I will never fulfil my wish of going to a Queen concert.  But that's fine, I still listen to their songs regularly, and never fail to enjoy them.

In the meantime, here is one of my favourite Queen songs and I particularly love this video because it was made at the height of my Roger Taylor crush.  Just try to resist those eyes ...

Day 5
dizzojay: (Dean)
It's been a great day in work today.

It's days like today that remind me how lucky I am to work there, and that the long days and the occasional crap that goes with running a busy payroll, are a small price to pay for working somewhere that believes fun and social interaction should be as much as part of the workday as, well, work

We had an all-day St Patrick's day party that included Irish music, decorations, an irish buffet (irish cheddar, soda bread, potato crisps, bacon, corned beef and irish chcolates, guinness fudge and irish coffee complete with whiskey).

And of course, the day wouldn't be complete without a couple of photos:

and here they are: )

Not a picture today, just a happy post!

Back in the middle of February, I decided to do Sugar-Free February (yes, I know I started 2 weeks late but hey ho, story of my life!)

I haven't been obsessive about it, nothing short of a health scare is going to make me give up my weekend bottle of wine, and last week I had a custard doughnut, my first cake for three weeks, because my boss had a birthday.  But I've been making a point of only picking things at the supermarket which have a green rating on the sugar category, and substiituting the sugar in my tea for sweeteners, and I have to say, I've been pleasantly surprised at how easy I've found it.

Added to that, I decided to tie it in with a calorie control exercise to help me get into a little bit more shape for the May cons.  I'm being really strict at the moment, (1,000 calories a day) up until my birthday, then I'll celebrate for a week or so before getting back onto it without being quite so strict (I'll probably up it to 1,500 calories a day).

Added again to that, the fact that I've been doing the 'Walk all over Cancer' fundraising campaign, getting sponsored to to walk at least 10,000 steps every day for the month of March (averaging about 11,500 per day so far).

With all this going on, I stepped onto the scales this morning, and I have lost a stone!!! Well, a stone and one pound to be precise!  That's fifteen pounds in American money.

Who's a happy (and significantly smaller) Dizzo then!! :D
dizzojay: (Dean)
As it's PI day, how could I resist a little selection of pie-loving and general food-loving Dean pictures ...?

Because, after all, seeing Dean eat is a joy to behold.  Who cares about table manners?
