Take lots of pictures! *evil grin* Photograph all those immensely cute guys I hadn't the guts to look at for very long (am terrified of people noticing me looking at them. Strangely enough, most of the people I look at tend to notice it sooner or later).

After the Ratal Stayover, went to join JN, XJ, HY, NG, KT and WB for karaoke. At Delphi. Was mildly horrified to discover that I remember 90% of the lyrics to that... that... Ah Niu song. Yes, that one whose English title is "The Girl At the Opposite Block Looks This Way". But it's such a bouncy, chirpy song!
And Robbie Williams' "Eternity" is a very good Ratal fandom song for my OTP. *evil grin* Another of his songs - "Let Love Be Your Energy" - is a lovely song for One inTeresting Pairing that I, in all likelihood, will never write.
Ate my dinner in the karaoke room. (Shhhh.) Balancing a plastic sushi carton, with soya sauce, on my knees.
I had no idea that "One Night In Beijing" was sung at such a high pitch. Also did not know that it was sung in such a dramatic fashion.
HY and WB ended up ... Suffice to say it involved a so-yellow-it's-chirpy star cushion. Was very much amused. (That is quite sad.)They forcing poor JN to move. Else she was trapped in the midst of their mock-acrimonious exchange.
After which, we left for Scott's Picnic. Sat and watched everyone have dinner, as had eaten already. HY lent me her copy of Charles' Dickens' "Hard Times". Will probably make one attempt at reading it and then give up ^_^ I remember mauling it in Practical Criticism.

Spent most of day clearing up my sleep debt (as Silien calls it. Nice name).
Watched the later half of "Once More With Feeling", as Mom fortituously changed the channel. *beams*
Found a style tag for LJ, to set a background image's opacity (Yes, it's one of the html tricks I so desperately want to do):
Where # is any number from 1 to 100.
