LJ Header Help!

Ok, I admit it. I'm an absolute doof when it comes to anything remotely computer-related and even worse is my knowledge about website customisation. I feel like such an old middle-aged cow - I remember laughing at my parents for not being able to figure out their new phone or the DVD player...guess, you could call it karma.
Anyway, I'd love you forever if one of you highly talented people could help me putting up a header on my LJ Journal. Something cool and House_Cam related.
I tried to read through some of the Header Tutorials but I don't understand a word.

Whoever is nice enough to help gets a little surprise from me - promise!

Cheers
Uta

Stupid hormones - I feel like I'm riding a rollercoaster today.
First of I hate the way I feel today - I just wanna crawl under a big rock.
Secondly so far I've managed to ignore everyone in the office(apart from the obligatory 'good morning') - yeah, that will boost my popularity!

Today is another day that just proves why I'm usually not big on the whole summer frenzy. Seeing everyone looking peachy, tanned and taut around me I just hate the way I look! Nothing can hide the fact that I am a big, fat blob.
ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Get me some Prozac! I just wanna cry and scream...

Crushed

When it comes to relationships I have to admit I always considered early retirement. I spent my teenage years and 20's falling in love and having my heart repeatedly broken . After another low blow a couple of years back I just thought "that's it! enough of this shit" Since then, love has been something that I see on telly and spawned some great music - but generally has no place in my personal life. DON'T FALL IN LOVE AND YOU CAN NEVER GET HURT! - yeah right...
Well, guess my panic when I realized a couple of days ago that I've well and truly fallen for someone again. Yes, it sucks to open yourself for a possible crush and burn but wow, i didn't know how I missed the butterflies in my tummy.
What is the chemical component of love?

Farewell MTV
heart glasses
grissomsgal_uk
So, I'm sitting on my couch, contemplating...today has been my last day at MTV and I'm truly a bit sad. I've been there on and off for the last 7 years and it's been more my home than a workplace. 7 years and tons of awesome moments:
Being jumped by Shirley Manson
Having Tommy Lee strip in front of me
Having tea with Marilyn Manson
Being 'manhandled' by Samuel L Jackson
Queing in the cafeteria next to Christopher Lee
and seeing the likes of Nick Cave, Eminem, Christina Aguilera, Nine Inch Nails, Blur, Oasis and so many more walking by your desk...Surreal!

So, monday is a new chapter, starting to work for ABC1 - no more rockers, hello sitcoms and dramas. Guess, I'm getting older...

So glad it's the weekend now, tomorrow i'll kick my butt and bring my smutathon contribution to paper.

Milk and Chocolate...

...is what I'm having right now. Sorry, but I couldn't think of another Header.
Sooooo, it's been a while since i last posted something, so what the heck. Life is pretty good right now. So far my (very selfish, sorry) 2006 wishes/resolutions look very promising. I actually got that bitching promo job at ABC1, I'm starting in about 2 weeks. Unfortunately they don't show CSI but at least i can produce trailers for Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs or Commander in Chief - just to name a few. I'm soooooo happy! My current job literally makes me sick - I just spend 4 days in bed with the flu.

I also try to get back in the dating game - i finally realised that Grissom probably won't turn up at my doorstep anytime soon and I don't wanna end up as the crazy catlady in Flat A. So, I found this very nice guy (older,grey hair...yummie!) who sounds promising - and he loves rollercoasters. Yeah, unfortunately he lives in CA and I reside in London but that said i always wanted to relocate to California. Let's wait and see, it's way too early to tell.

Still haven't started on my Smutathon contribution, but let's not fear. Given my history in writing, MA Thesis, TV stuff, I always get it done at the last minute. It's all taking shape in my head - promise!

What else???, CSI Season 6 started last night here in the UK and I'm happy! Also being completely spoiled by YTAW it was still a treat, even the hat!
Speaking of YTAW, I think i'm taking a time out, all the drama and bad vibes about a certain 'lady' and dark clouds over GSR really take the fun out of the whole CSI experience. I mean, i want GSR as much as anyone else - and I know it will happen - but seriously guys and gals, IT'S A BLOODY SWEEPS STUNT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD AND TV GUIDE ALWAYS BLOWS STUFF OUT OF PROPORTION. So please, relax!

Also, i'd love more friends on here, so please drop me a line...

Laugh out loud...NOW

Hey, just received these hilarious comedy excerpts (from the Edinburgh Fringe)from a co-worker. British comedy at its best. I had to laugh out loud. Enjoy!

Excerpts from the Edinburgh Fringe 2005


Cats have nine lives. Which makes them ideal for experimentation.

- Jimmy Carr



The right to bear arms is slightly less ludicrous than the right to arm bears.

- Chris Addison at the Pleasance



My dad is Irish and my mum is Iranian, which meant that we spent most of our family holidays in Customs.

- Patrick Monahan at the Gilded Balloon



The dodo died. Then Dodi died, Di died and Dando died... Dido must be sh*tting herself.

- Colin & Fergus at the Pleasance



My parents are from Glasgow which means they're incredibly hard, but I was never smacked as a child ... well maybe one or two grams to get me to sleep at night.

- Susan Murray at the Underbelly



Is it fair to say that there'd be less litter in Britain if blind people were given pointed sticks?

- Adam Bloom at the Pleasance



My mum and dad are Scottish but they moved down to Wolverhampton when I was two, 'cause they wanted me to sound like a tw*t.

- Susan Murray at the Underbelly



You have to remember all the trivia that your girlfriend tells you, because eventually you get tested. She'll go: "What's my favourite flower?" And you murmur to yourself: "Sh*t, I wasn't listening..

Self-raising?"

- Addy Van-Der-Borgh at the Assembly Rooms



The world is a dangerous place; only yesterday I went into Boots and punched someone in the face.

- Jeremy Limb, at the Trap



I saw that show, 50 Things To Do Before You Die. I would have thought the obvious one was "Shout For Help".

- Mark Watson, Rhod Gilbert at the Tron



I went out with an Irish Catholic. Very frustrating. You can take the Girl out of Cork...

- Markus Birdman at the Pod Deco



Got a phone call today to do a gig at a fire station. Went along. Turned out it was a bloody hoax.

- Adrian Poynton at the Pleasance



Employee of the month is a good example of how somebody can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.

- Demetri Martin at the Assembly Rooms



A dog goes into a hardware store and says: "I'd like a job please". The hardware store owner says: "We don't hire dogs, why don't you go join the circus?" The dog replies: "What would the circus want with a plumber".

- Steven Alan Green at C34



Hey - you want to feel really handsome? Go shopping at Asda.

- Brendon Burns at the Pleasance



I like to go into the Body Shop and shout out really loud "I've already got one!"

- Norman Lovett at The Stand



It's easy to distract fat people. It's a piece of cake.

- Chris Addison at the Pleasance



I enjoy using the comedy technique of self-deprecation - but I'm not very good at it.

- Arnold Brown at The Stand



If you're being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They're trained for that.

- Milton Jones at the Underbelly.

CSI Season 6 finally arrives in the UK

So, after waiting and waiting and more waiting, I finally found out that CSI returns to FIVE on Tuesday, January 31st...woohoo. There is a light at the end of the tunnel...oh, and even more good news: House returns aswell in January. 2006 is getting better by the minute.

New Year's Resolutions

grissomsgal_uk
So, here we are another year in the making. After 2005 being one of the most crappiest year I can remember I actually have high hopes for the next 12 months. I know the whole 'fresh slate' stuff sounds pathetic but I'll have a go anyway. I already substituted my bacon sarnies for Special K...pathetic yes, but it's a start. Here are my other 'projects' for 2006 - in no particular order:

Finally putting up the wallpaper i bought ages ago. Can't wait! My bedroom will become a fantastic boudoir that will even give Lady Heather's dominion a run for her money. Charcoal wallpaper, Venetian mirrors, golden butterflies and some real ones. Woohoo...

Putting up the bookshelves in my living room. Damn it's time I get my hands on a crafty diy-friendly guy!

Posting my first GRS fanfic on geekfiction. It's all in my head, I just need to write it down. Soon-ish, I promise.

Tracking down Billy Petersen and finding out what he smells like. NEED TO FIND OUT...I'm big on scents...

Going to Viva Las Vegas this spring and snogging a hot Greaser.

Getting that Promo Producer job I'm so after. My 2nd interview is next week. So please keep your fingers crossed, friends!
'
Fitting into my favorite dress again - without having to join a gym ('Cause the chance of me running on a treadmill 3 times a week is even slimmer than actually 'sniffing Billy'.)

ok, that's enough for now. I need to go, Whatever happened to Baby Jane is on now, and I'm in the mood for a bitchfest!
