I actually finished this about a week ago, but it's taken me this long to get around to writing up my thoughts on it because I don't know what to make of it. It's one of the most famous books in literature for all the wrong reasons. It's also unintentionally hilarious at times and quite often of extreme what the fuckness. It also contains a liberal use of the C word, so if you're offended by that, probably best not to bother carrying on because I will be using it too.

WARNING! CONTAINS EXTREMEMLY STRONG LANGUAGE AND ALSO SPOILERS FOR THE PLOTCollapse )

I am reading a lot at the moment as work is pretty quiet and there is nothing better to do so I thought I'd turn this blog into a literary review one once in a while. There may even be gifs, I haven't decided yet.

This review will contain spoilers for the plot of Madame Bovary, if you do not know what happens and do not wish to be spoiled do not read! If you have a pretty good idea what happens in 19th century sensationalist fiction you might as well read on because, well, you're dead right. They are conventions for a reason dammit.

Here be spoilers...for a book written in 1857...but still.Collapse )

Remember my Etsy shop? SOMEONE HAS ORDERED A BRACELET! My first order! This is so exciting! SQUEEEEE!!!

Now the downside: they have forgotten to put in what house they want so I've just had to message them and ask. But still, squee!

And then I got sorted into Ravenclaw! YES! I am going to take this as an opportunity to be really eccentric thank you very much. I like what it says about the other houses, Slytherins have " a long house tradition of doing whatever it takes to win – so watch out, especially in Quidditch matches and exams"; Gryyfindors " tend to be show-offs", and Hufflepuffs, "well, nobody could say they’re not nice people. In fact, they’re some of the nicest people in the school. Let’s just say you needn’t worry too much about them when it comes to competition at exam time." Which I suppose is a little condescending and kind of makes me imagine them sat around the Hufflepuff common room playing with the safety scissors and glitter because they're not allowed to do any real spells. Harsh. I would love to know what the Hufflepuff welcome letter says, anyone?

Anyway, my username is seerstone135, please friend me, I am ever so alone and I want a friend to blow stuff up behind the broom sheds with :(

I am only going to do this once, because I don't really want to turn this blog into an advertising service, but what the hell, I only just started it and I need the publicity. I have made an Etsy! A product of boredom, need for money and remembering that I am actually quite good at something crafty, I present to you Fainiel's Friendship bracelets and my Harry Potter inspired bracelets.


Currently they are my only item for sale, but I hope to offer more soon. These are made to order, but I'm thinking of making some other designs that are for sale as seen, I just don't have the thread right now (though some is on the way, I bulk bought. Hurray for Etsy!). I saw an amazing pattern for a Space Invaders bracelet the other day, I am itching to try that one out!

Also, is it me or has the rich text editor gone really wrong all of a sudden?

Because stuff like this happens. I am useless, I know. But it will go nicely in my room when I get everything cleaned up and some shelves fitted and everything...

And yes, it is one that appeared in Jen's office in The IT Crowd, I have wanted it ever since I saw it on the TV, huzzah for Google! And if anyone knows where the pink one in this screencap comes from, I will be forever in your debt. Basically, I just want her office.

Much to the delight of [personal profile] steerpike , and to the disgust of, I'm sure, pretty much everyone else, I caved in and got The Sims 3. I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. But recent events made me want to make a self sim with a more realistic bodyshape for once without having to download anything.

My self sim under the cutCollapse )
