Boring update

Well, might not be too boring...all depends I guess.

Wow...over 2 weeks since I have updated. Yes, I fail. Speaking of, gave up on NaNo yet again this year. Was stuck around 2200 words. Doubled from last year I guess. I got sidetracked by RPS writing, then a Cake fic (none of which have gotten finished yet). I was looking back over a few things in the past I have written, and I can't believe I wrote them. Not that they were bad, but that they actually seemed better than what I am doing now. Kinda depressing. I need to take nots from myself, methinks.

I haven't really jabbered about this, but I have been a huge fan of the play Bare: A Pop Opera for several years now...or more. Recently, an album was finally put out that includes the whole play--since like 90% of the thing was sung--and this even includes the dialogue bits and a bonus DVD. Not the original cast except for the gal who played Ivy. I got mine sent to me a few days ago and I can. Stop. Listening. To. It. Thrilled about that.

My last paycheck was like 4 times the amount that I normally make since I worked 40 hours one week and 38 the next to cover for a coworker who had a death in the family. Not sure if I liked doing 8-10 hour days, but the money was sure worth it. Schedule is all normal until December.
I work 5 hours every Sunday in winter, and also in December, the place I work is getting new carpeting, so it will be closed most of the month. I still have no idea if I will be working those Sundays there or not...I was told that we may be used to help clean up, etc. I hope so--50 odd bucks plus I am nosy and want to see what is going on ^.^

What else....
We now have a Walgreens next to Walmart. Went there first time today. Found out I can order digital prints online from them for cheaper than anyplace else. Also that they have life sized stuffed dogs for 10-20 bucks. Would take up a corner of my bedroom, but I still want one lol.

I picked up a few decorations for my room. Got a plastic bunch of Pointsetta flowers that I broke apart to...stick places. I have some green garland pieces left over from a few years ago that I drapped over the top of my bookselves. Strunh a few flowers in there and it looks pretty good. So cluttered around here that I can't do much else. Might buy a mini tree to something *shrugs*

I met with [ profile] michelleann68 at McDonalds Thursday as she passed through to visit family for TGing. Had a nice chat and she had bought a present for Ki--a stocking filled with cat toys--to replace the ones lost in The Bug Incident*.

*The Bug Incident--Ki's box where we keep some catfood, random toys and other stuff we don't use any more--I had puleld out one of her burried toys to find these little bugs crawing all over it (naturally I squeaked and dropped it). After stalling for over a week--yes, I didn't want to go in there--I hauled the box outside and started digging. I had seen the same bugs when, at the other house, Mom used to leave Mindy (house dog)'s food lying in the ground. It attracted all these bugs, that looked like half-sized pill bugs, and we had to stop doing it.
I had no idea how long they had been in there. Pulled out several bags of food that hadn't been opened, and a couple toys and a brush that were on top.
Mom likes to buy these pouches of soft cat treats and she leaves them open because she has a hard time opening them. Didn't t ake long before I found a pouch filled with those bugs (I am cringing as I type). So I tossed all the open packages, then poked around until I could get to the bottom of the box. And ewww...there was like an inch of dead bugs in the bottom. I refused to try to save anything else (except a bouncy ball that looked semi-clean) and tossed the box in our field so Dad could burn it.
So. Now we have a smaller box, and I need to make sure Mom doesn't go overboard with buying treats faster than we feed Ki. I also got another small box for toys, since Ki now has more than she knows what to do with. She looked very confused when I dumped all the toys at her paws. Been playing with her a lot the past few days. As I walked over to Pea (laptop) a little bit ago, she was on my bed and reached out to snag my shirt, asking me to play lol.

That was more than I wanted to remember about The Bug Incident.

House--Loved last week's. First time in a long while that I enjoyed a POTW. Too bad he was unconscious for most of the last half. I am thinking that that is why House hasn't been as good lately--the POTW's are all boring and I don't care if they live or not.
But I was hoping that, for the one time that it was Lupis, that it would be more...dramatic?

...I think that is all....

Fic Rec!

[ profile] michelleann68 wrote a Torchwood/Alias crossover for her costume :D

Now I know nothing about Alias, but it was still fairly easy to follow.

Go give it a look!

NaNo wordcount: 1942--after changing the last 200 words, fixing some stuff early on that was bugging me, and writing 400 words on a Cake ficcy.

WGA Strike

Here's a nice article my brother tossed me that talks about the strike and what to expect from our shows:

Also, a link found in that article tells of how many eps certain shows have collected together:,0,7606966.htmlstory?coll=la-home-center
But it doesn't list all shows....i.e the ones I am most curious about lol.

NaNo update: A sad 1782 words

NaNo and work

1529 words.

Got about 400 words written during my lunch break at work. The library is my favorite thinking space. So much better than home in some instances.

Oh, and something fun a few days ago while at work...A lady was looking for some books on photo editing. Naturally, with our limited and cut back selection, we had none. So I jabbered at her a bit, trying to find out what she wanted done with picture(s). She had said that she mainly wanted a few seperate effects, like blurring out just certain bits. So I suggested that she make two copies of whatever file she wanted, blur the double completely, then just cut out the bits from the double and paste to the original as needed.
That was how I created the original icon that I am using. So my photomanips have come in handy. She spent several minutes thanking me for that tip. Made me happy for like the rest of the day.

NaNoWriMo wordcount is 908. Not bad imo for starting a day late and having a major problem with being distracted.
So far, this is going much better than my efforts last year, which I think I just planned to death so I was bored of it by the time it came to write.
I guess right now, my goal is to just keep writing and to not get stuck and abandon it. I am aready getting real fond of my characters :D

What Your Handwriting Says About You

You are a fairly energetic person. You know how do pace yourself, and you deal well with stress.

You are very extroverted and outgoing. You are loving, friendly, and supportive. However, you are also manipulative and controlling at times.

You are very detail oriented and meticulous. You are a careful thinker and a true intellectual.

You need a bit of space in your life, but you're not a recluse. You expect people to give you a small amount of privacy, and you respect their privacy as well.

You are somewhat traditional, but you are also open to change. You listen to your head and your heart.

You are a poor communicator. No one really knows exactly what you're getting at.

Well, I guess that is fairly accurate except being outgoing and open to change ;)

And good luck everyone with NaNoWriMo! I am going to give it another stab this year (last year I almost got 2k words before I was distracted). As soon as I can get caught up with all the wonderful costume fics, will dive in.
I really want to do the story that I had been wanting to do last year--I still have the notes and stuff for it, but a new idea creeped up several days ago...It seems like if I over plan, then I get bored with the idea before I even start it. Maybe I should just try to write 50k words of anything rather than just one story. Hmmm
