Remember how I said I was back? Well, life wouldn't let me. In the end I had to withdraw my offer on the flat as it would have been difficult to resell, thus not a good investment opportunity.

So my grandmother (mum's mother) died last week. My brother and I flew out to France on Thursday. The funeral was Friday. My other brother (the one who lives in Canada) and my mum were already there. My grandmother has had Alzheimer's for 15 years, has stopped remembering who I was for 12 and remembering who she was for 7 years. She was suffering and unhappy so it's for the best. However, Friday was sad. My mum and aunt decided the grandkids would be the ones to speak at various points during the funeral. So the five of us had different things to see, as well as our testimonies. My cousin started crying during hers and her brother had to finish it for her. I felt really bad for her as she was the closest to our grandmother out of all of us.

Besides the sadness of the afternoon, we had a family evening meal and that was really nice. The last time both familes were all together was over 2 decades ago. We had a good time, a good laugh and a good cry. Also, my mum's best friends (since they were 10) and her sister came to the funeral at the last minute. I saw her the second time I had to stand to say something. I smiled. Not for long (because it was soooo inappropriate) but I couldn't help it. I was so happy to see her.

And I'm going back to France next Saturday (1st June) as my American cousin and her husband on my dad's side are going to Bordeaux so we're doing this huge family reunion thing. That's two weekends in a row in France. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

I am so not into webisodes and vlogs and took my wonderful f-list writing about the LBD to open my eyes. It's my favourite thing ever! It's so incredibly well done. I wish they would actually make a tv series with all the same actors with the same plot/setting, etc.

I cannot believe how good this is. I just saw Darcy again and it made me soooo happy. Their awkward scene was spot on. Amazing. Wonderful.

Also, I like Lydia a lot more in the LBD than in the novel. She is really adorbs. I need LBD icons.

I have 3 more episodes to watch and I'll be all caught up. I am sad. I can't wait for Monday.

I went back to friends only. This LJ is completely off-limits to my RL friends. I like having this place private. I've been going around loads of places, logging on LJ this last year, so I prefer having it Friends Only as a safety precaution.

All fic, icon, music video, color bar, brush, gradient, texture, etc. are now at improvedsilence.

If you want to friend me...

I am bisexual. I don't talk much about it, but I am so if you can't deal with it, don't friend me, no harm, no foul. I'm a generally happy person but this journal is where I vent when I'm depressed so you usually get to see the worst side of me.

I don't comment all the time. When I read my f-list, I read every entry without skipping and comment when I have something to say. If you don't say anything in mine, it doesn't mean that I won't comment in yours. I don't work that way. I have also de-friended some people because I felt we hadn't had anything in common in over a year. I also do not beg anyone to keep me on their f-list. If you make a friends-cut post, I will not comment, no matter who you are. I expect people who want me on their f-list will keep me on their f-list, without my having to beg.

So if all of this sounds good to you, comment here and I'll probably add you back -- as long as we have something in common.
