Packed full of green badness

I have clearly caught some revolting child-related lurgee ;-)

I’ve managed to pick up a cough, a cold and a sore throat. I don’t feel *really* lousy yet, but I can tell it’s working on it, and some of the stuff coming out of me is *revolting*. Is that too much information?

Anyway, last night I finished [I hope] the next in the Issigonis Eggs videos. This one however is, uh, a bit big. It’s 23 minutes long, as it stands, and you won’t believe how much stuff I cut and ditched. Anyway, it’s being uploaded for checking by my co-conspiritor and main presenter; if it’s passed then it’ll move onto the ‘published’ phase of existence.

Warning: The Approaching Video is Unfeasibly Long

At just shy of 25 minutes, this excessive piece of video created by me, Nikki, and our group of mad people who put up with us, well, it’s so long that I’m going to leave it to render overnight, and then view it in the morning. I’m praying I’ve edited it okay; why? Because at 25 minutes it’s too long for me to sit and watch it though now, at half twelve at night….. So I hope it’s okay, otherwise I’ll have to re-edit and re-render it tomorrow. I should be asleep.

Another great big oops

As a student nurse, I’m utterly paranoid when I’m doing drug rounds that I’ll give someone the wrong drug. Hell, I expect I’ll be the same as a trained nurse…. so I don’t fail to see the irony in the fact that for the last 2-3 days I’ve been taking the wrong tablets. I can’t remember which day it was, but I remember waking up, attempting to extract a tablet from the little foil blister pack, discovering it was empty, fishing about in the bedside cupboard and pulling out a new blister pack of tablets….

…Unfortunately, either in my dozy state, or through complete idiocy I pulled out the wrong ones. So; for 2-3 days I’d been taking the wrong tablets. Or more accurately twice the dose of one tablet and none-at-all of the other one. This may account for my moodyness, tiredness, and general oddness over the last few days.

Of course, switching back is also fun, my body’s always been very sensitive to my tablets and uh, this has not gone unnoticed. It wasn’t even as though I was checking when I noticed…. I just took one, went to take the other one and thought “hey, haven’t I taken that already….”. Duh.

Still, hopefully things’ll be back to normal in Kate world soon (sounds like some sort of Barbie-esque competitor. Kate world. Or maybe a new magazine for pre-teens. Worrying….).

So. In my work avoidance I’ve been doing some video stuff; this stuff has probably got an even narrower audience than my normal videos; it’s vaguely educational. Or uh, informative. I’m also trying to use less of the popular / famous / well known / likely to sue me for money stuff in the soundtracks to the videos. So if you know of any unsigned bands…. Mind you, in my uninspired, tired state last night it was all I did was stick some bits one after another. It really needs uh, redoing. ‘cos it sucks at the moment :-)

Anyway, that’s enough from me. Oh, I’ve hurt my shoulder god-knows-how. One minute it was fine, the next I’m in quite-a-lot-of-pain. It’s sort of okay at the moment; if I don’t move it too much or look to my right. I think I may have done it while out jogging, but…. and for reasons which escape me I’m also phenominally tired. Oh, that’s probably still the tablet thing :-/

Oh, that’ll do. I’m knackered now…..

Incidentally, I recommend listening to coverville, which is a podcast thing, and it’s very cool.

Engine steady!

So, Another day, another new video uploaded, or it will be by the morning…. being uploaded right this instant.

Yeah, so, it’s like….

…..not as good as the first one, I really didn’t have the hang of the new software when I did it. But, it’s there. It’s fitting an engine steady.

The pride video is coming on nicely now, with evil afoot; some bugs in the software appeared to give me a lot of grief tonight, I’d be in bed now, but it took a while to work out why the damn thing wasn’t rendering…. So, yeah. You can all wait on that.

Anyway, go look!
