...okay, so two thirds of the way through September is possibly a little late for that, but the part of my summer that was most like a holiday (and in terms of weather, the most like summer since early June), was the period at the end of August/beginning of September that I spent housesitting for friends whose house has a delightfully large garden and a raised balcony overlooking it. It has been long enough since I had an actual holiday that two weeks of that was a genuine luxury.

Anyway, MiddleLittle!Sis and Little!Bro (who at 6'3" is about 7 inches taller than BigLittle!Bro!) have deserted Bradford and headed off to uni and the world has gone back at school and the heating has had to be turned on a few times so it is officially no longer summer.

The parts of my summer that were about fannish activity rather than work, or trying to make the most of every tiny scrap of sunshine, or spending more time entertaining The Naughtiest Niece than anyone not a parent ought to have to, had a recurring bad-guys-as-good-guys theme.

I have been working my way through both Leverage and White Collar, and rewatching old episodes of Hustle, which I have to admit I still love more than either of the others, and then I saw Inception and my brain exploded.

If you ever want to take a measure of your grasp on reality, try watching Inception twice in a week and then walking into a room where your parents are watching La Vie En Rose. I am not quite as grounded as I thought I was!

This post is mostly for the purpose of making my calendar flip over from August to September finally, but I really am going to try and be here more.

There is fic I want to rec and pictures I want to post and I've spent so much of my life in education that September always seems like the best time to start things anew, with far more chance of sticking than New Year's resolutions ever have. Or is that just me?

Inception, I have not heard of this at ALL. Is there a synopsis?!

Basically it's a movie about thieves who extract ideas from the subconscious mind while their victims are dreaming. Even more basically, it is utterly awesome.

I honestly do not know if you are serious or not - on the one hand, it is one of the biggest grossing movies of the summer, if not the year, but on the other hand, your current fandoms of note are the Man Booker Prize and cooking shows, so why would you have heard of it!

Hahaha, ok, yes I HAD heard of it, now that you mention it, for some reason I was thinking 'tv'. But no, I did not watch it. And it took me reading this comment twice to realize that yes, I DID know OF it.

My life is DIFFERENT, ok?!

That's certainly one word for it.
