If you understand that title, congrats! You're officially acquainted with UK culture. Now go have a cheeky Nandos to celebrate.
Figured I'd post an update, keep you guys in the loop on what's going on with me at the moment.
EVERYTHING is up in the air - I'm still talking to that Canadian animation studio and progress is slow as balls, and I'm waiting on confirmation from Sun and Moon that I'm going to be there for an extra week given that they didn't have me in this week so fingers crossed for that, because payday two weeks before Christmas is always a good thing. I thought I might be leaving my part time job at Laser Fusion in solidarity with everyone else who said they were going to walk, but it seems like none of them are actually going to walk, so it wouldn't really be in solidarity with anyone and it's good anyway cos I kind of need this job for when animation stuff settles the fuck down. That is assuming I start getting hours back on the weekends, otherwise being on their staff list will be pointless regardless.
I also attended a small protest rally against the cuts to tax credits yesterday - which in light of the events in Paris and the subsequent march towards further bombing of Syria turned into a peace rally as well - and they had an open mic thing, so I stumbled through a few words about the links between oil and conflict in the Middle East in order to try and encourage people to join the Global Climate March that's happening this weekend ((check your local area to see if your nearest march is the Saturday or the Sunday)). So yeh, all eyes on Paris!
My mum's had surgery today to get rid of a cancerous tumour in her chest - all goes well, with a round of chemo to come starting in January, she should be back up to health by next summer, so that's gonna be alright in the end. Just heard in the last few minutes that it's gone ok and that she's back awake and recovering.
And holy shit you guys, any of you keep up with Gravity Falls? Cos if not you are missing out! Also, you don't have to worry about keeping up with it forever cos there's only one episode left before it ends - which is simultaneously great and bad news. Crossing my fingers for a region-free bluray release of the complete series though - that would be awesome!
And I need to catch back up with MLP - cos that trailer they released of this finale has got me intrigued as fuck about this. Every villain at once all stomping over Equestria? HELL YEAH I'M DOWN FOR THAT. Anyone here do a good Starlight Glimmer voice? Cos I've got an animation doodle idea...
Speaking of trailers, CIVIL WAR FUCK YEAH - looks like it's going to be awesome. Frustrating that we have to wait til May, but oh well, we've got Star Wars next month to keep us all overhyped til then. X)
So yeh, I think that brings it all up to date! Any questions about anything, don't be afraid to give us a shout in the comments.
