Hooray! Post-pub me was just coming along to do this if it wasn't done!! Well done/yay for remembering!

(I'm sorry I've vanished into the aether. The last couple of days I've been just coming home and mostly staring into space for a while. I fear Flash confuses me, though.)

I suspect if I asked who was doing it at 9pm, I might not get a reply.

(No worries I having been learning the skill of doll hair rerooting in readiness for the Illyria project!)
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:10 pm (UTC)
Yeah... :/ We're stuck with Fridays in March as well, aren't we? I'm sure it will be all right... I am usually back just about in time!

Feb. 15th, 2013 11:15 pm (UTC)
I am usually in anyway. I am much more likely to be out mid-week.

(I have the the hair ready and I just found the doll (can't have Illyria smiling like an idiot). Obviously the answer was a Posh Spice doll (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/POSH-SPICE-GIRL-VICTORIA-BECKHAM-BARBIE-DOLL-/221186396680?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&nma=true&si=PqLGnEEF17nMJsrk5XsfmDl0rtY%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc)! I am looking forward to pulling her head off and destroying her soul as I turn her into an Old One)

Oh, she'll do very nicely! (Even though she looks nothing like Posh Spice.)
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:24 pm (UTC)
Which is a bonus. She'll probably get a new, more poseable body eventually too.

Of course, all this doesn't allow for the bit I'm not so good at - the painting.
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:27 pm (UTC)
Mmm, articulated limbs would definitely be more Illyria-like, inasmuch as she is essentially an insect...

As for painting, I have no idea. Something with washes?
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:31 pm (UTC)
I don't think I'll bother with the tentacles though.

Oh you use acrylics, but my hand isn't very steady and my eyesight isn't great. We'll see.
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:34 pm (UTC)

Sounds like you need one of those jewellers' magnifying glasses!
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:37 pm (UTC)
I already thought of that. I haven't tried it out yet though. That's tomorrow's task.

Fortunately, the paint wipes off easily with acetone.
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:40 pm (UTC)
It sounds like you'll be fine! I'm looking at the weekend and wishing I had time for something creative, rather than knowing the whole thing will probably be filled with procrastinating from getting dressed and putting off buying in any food. I don't have anything to eat, of course, but I can subsist on jelly beans for a reasonable amount of Saturday. But I won't! I'll get up and dressed and I'll tidy and shop! I will!
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:44 pm (UTC)
I don't actually have time for creative things, I just ignore the housework to make room for it.

There's no point in looking at me for motivation. It's black coffee for breakfast tomorrow as I can't be bothered to get dressed just for milk.
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:49 pm (UTC)
Oh, that's obviously valid. Although reminds me that my housemate left a sink full of washing up to do when she left for the week on Wednesday (apparently she came home from the lab too late to have time to do it before she had to leave for the airport... I can't be bothered with it at the moment). :(

Damned lack of motivation. I blame beds; they shouldn't be so comfy. Though I think mine might suck me in now.
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:51 pm (UTC)
That makes me feel better about not filling the dishwasher for a few days.

Mmmm bed...
Feb. 15th, 2013 11:55 pm (UTC)
Maybe I should use our dishwasher. The problem is that it's one of those mini ones, so it's essentially useless, because you can't get anything in it. And by the time it finishes you could probably have crafted new crockery from scratch. I should just run a sink of hot water and bubbles and do the whole thing over an hour or so of wandering in and out. Like usual.

On that bombshell, maybe it is actually time.
Feb. 16th, 2013 10:14 am (UTC)
If it's going to take that long, you might as well use the dishwasher - at least for the small things.

Lorne is green... and can survive having his head cut off... must make this into fic!

Feb. 16th, 2013 09:19 am (UTC)
Go for it!
Feb. 16th, 2013 09:45 am (UTC)

I'm usually in on a Friday, such is my sad life. Wasn't last night, though, and didn't even think about this until just now.

Anyway, yay! again, and pleased by how well those song prompts went down (well, two of them anyway).
Feb. 16th, 2013 09:59 am (UTC)
I thought you were going to give us Womack and Womack fic?

There's always someone around.
Feb. 16th, 2013 11:45 am (UTC)
I might manage it by the end of the month.
