the hallowe'en window at my work. it's been hella busy all week.

i sort of dressed up yesterday for my trip to post office / town on saturday since i have no halloween plans this year. (still gutted about breaking my arm two weeks before halloween and missing ellie's halloween party. and tabling at a movie night thingie in london) i bought some fangs from work but damn they are so much whiter than my teeth so no vamp tukru. but i got some face paint and did this to myself:

i'm not entirely sure if i was a zombie or a ghoul or just generally dead and battered. did get quite a few funny looks in town. and compliments when i popped in at work. (actually i didn't add the white stiches til i got home and was supposed to put the pies in the oven. step away from the facepaint)

i've been meaning to post here for weeks and weeks but i never seem to know what to say or have anything to say or any pictures. or pictures of the stuff i wanted to talk about. or some other reason why it's not happening. i have new things i want to show you but my camera batteries have run out and i only just found the charger and the batteries and charged them.

i haven't been up to much, really. working, watching angel, working on the vampire sushi birthday zine (it's looking pretty damn awesome, even if i say it myself.) working some more, buying buffy comics (or as carl likes to correct me, graphic novels) off ebay, got a deck of tarot cards & borrowed a book from emma but i haven't sussed it out yet at all.

some of the post i've had in the last few weeks.

i should really be working on vampire sushi #2 instead of writing a shitty blog entry and watching ginger snaps 2: unleashed. i need to have it ready to print tomorrow during my lunch. and i'm so not anywhere near there yet. need to get cracking! i will be launching it tomorrow, along with a special 2nd birthday giveaway. keep your eyes peeled for it tomorrow.

VAMPIRE SUSHI #2 COMPILATION ZINE desperately needs your submissions! we have extended the deadline until 23rd OCTOBER now (since the original deadline was almost two weeks ago and we've received none…)

so yes, we are looking for drawings, photographs, collages, embroidery, anything! also considering horror stories and reviews of horror films! also, pictures / drawings of your past and present halloween costumes! the main theme is vampires but other monsters & horror creatures / themes are welcome too. anything related to twilight is not welcome, unless its taking the piss out of sparkly 'vampires'.

the zine will be quarter size / a6 but your piece doesn't have to be necessarily, we're perfectly able to resize things on the photocopier or in photoshop before we print it for the flats. you can either email us artwork in digital form or mail it (email us for the address).

we'd especially love zinesters we distro to take part in this compilation.

for more info comment, or email us at vampiresushidistro at

i cannot believe i have not blogged about this here. i've blogged and reblogged this so many times on my tumblr i guess i just thought i had. blogger fail. anyway, it's only one more week til i need your submissions. and we need them real bad!. we’ve still only really have one that we’ve actually received. so pretty please! anything scary or halloween related will be most appreciated. please spread the word. (the latest tumblr post.)

i might blog about other stuff later on. i've been cranky and feeling brain dead lately.

The Pirate Castle, Oval Road. Camden, London NW1 7EA

this is where i'll be today with vampire sushi distro. oh and CARL'S COMING ALONG. well, he's currently grunting in the bed but he's supposed to meet me in town later (i have to pop into work to print out some orders first) and then be off to london. the other exciting part about camden zine fest is that i'm hosting a zine reading there at 3.30pm featuring cath of here. in my head, emma of fanzine ynfytyn and me. (also supposed to have lisa of sometimes i'm dreaming but unfortunately her new job's induction was changed to today! suckfest) i'm hella nervous, mostly because a) i haven't ever done this before and b) i was going to read a new piece i've been working on for #16 but i totes haven't finished it! i was frantically scribbling shit down for it last night during QI and missed all the quite interesting stuff. so yes, i have no idea what i'm going to read! woe ist me. anyway, i should go make a cup of coffee, some toast and get moving.
