Sorry about the super-delayed Ariellalphabet’s Week, it’s just this week has been crazy busy. That crazy, I might even call it cray-cray. All craziness aside, it’s been super fun, despite barely having chance to rest!

Thursday was nice and relaxed, thankfully! It felt like I’d been firing on all pistons all week, so it was nice to relax for a bit. However, I was playing the waiting game with the postman. My housemate Robin, who is a filmmaker and film-student, ordered a super-fancy camera to do his work on, but sadly, the delivery is taking a bit longer than he’d hoped, so me, him and Daryl have been regularly playing the waiting game with the postman. Sadly, the postman doesn’t come at any regular during the day, so we’ve been waiting from 10-3 most days! However, I used this time the best way I could, and wrote up a few articles for ComicsCrux, including one about My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. I never thought I’d see the words ‘bronies and pegasisters’ underneath ‘written by Ari Carr’! I also wrote up my responses to the Liebster Award, which had been sent to me by the lovely Lolita girl LizJuice, so I took the perfect opportunity to drink plenty of tea! Also, because neither Daryl or I could be bothered to cook anything substantial, we ordered pizza and watched a couple of episodes of Supernatural! We’re finally making headway through series 5, and despite not being overly keen at the start of this series, I’ve been enjoying it much more, and I’m loving Castiel! I also got volume 2 of the brilliant Emitown through the post, and wrote up a review of it. I love autobio comics so much, and Emi’s really is something special.

On Saturday, we were up bright and early (against our will!) when Eleanor and our estate agent turned up at 10 to arrange signing contracts, discuss when the new sofas were turning up, and general housey stuff. Once everything had been signed and the estate agent left, we discovered that Eleanor hadn’t seen Firefly! So after a quick trip to Asda for snacks, we marathoned all but one episode, in a glorious flurry of Nathan Fillion, awesome sci-fi, and the best way to kick off a tenancy. Saturday also marks the second time I had take-out pizza, as Eleanor ordered for us so we could continue the marathon. Saturday was fun!
On Sunday I went out with a friend to go and see Wreck-It Ralph, which had been released over here in the UK earlier this week, and I loved it so much. It had the best game cameos, and an awesome soundtrack. I really enjoyed it! I’ll be writing up a full review at some point this week as well, so keep an eye out for that too. After seeing the film, we went out to Pizza Hut (take-out pizza three times in a week! It’s safe to say I’m staying away from it for a bit!) and I had the best margherita pizza. I’m super picky with pizza, so I usually just stick with plain, but it is super nice in Pizza Hut. After getting back, Daryl, Robin and I watched a few episodes of Supernatural, until in a freak prank, we caused a snowball fight inside the house! It had been snowing for the better part of Sunday, and it had settled a fair bit too, so at 11 at night, Robin, Daryl and I decided to have an hour-long snowball fight which was ridiculously fun! Robin got some pretty good photos, including one of me on Daryl’s shoulders trying to write something on a sign. It’s Tuesday as I’m writing this, and my arms and legs are still aching from it!
So, it’s been a busy week for me! Hopefully this week will be less busy!
