It's finally the weekend! It's not quite a sleeping in kind of weekend, but at least it's a don't have to be at either job kind of a weekend.

I'm getting really sick of Roo's new habit of chewing on typing fingers. I enjoy him sitting in my lap and being all sweet and purr-some, but this new thing of his with biting is getting very old very fast.

I've deleted [community profile] 15kinks off my Scrivener twice this week. I'm just very damn discouraged on the whole thing.

But then, I'm just very damn discouraged on life and everything.

And that's it.

Oh well

I'm in a contrary brain space.

I want to make more words happen. The harder I try, the less they want to come.
I get in a writing groove but have to leave at the end of my lunch break. I can't make words happen now.
"You look like you're enjoying your music." I cut off my music.
I'm so damn tired. I don't want to go to bed yet in case words do happen.
I feel like shit and want to talk. If I start thinking about talking, I start feeling like I'm choking.

As far as #365k/365Day is going, I've written over 268k so far. I'm approximately 73% of the way to goal. I've ended each month with at least 6,000 words over where I needed to be. My best month so far has been May, where I wrote nearly 36,000 more words than I needed. I might have the occasional shitty writing day, but I'm not letting myself get behind where I need to be.

I'm still on my goddamn period. I've been on my period since June 5. Monday will be three damn weeks. I'm fucking sick of it. It shows no sign of slowing down or stopping.

[community profile] 15kinks is... ongoing. I've had a few good writing nights in a row off it, so that's good. I still feel like it's ridiculous and unreadable and so fucking pointless, but I have one damn anonymous reader on Tumblr. I'm writing for them.

And on that contrary note, I'm fucking sick of Tumblr too. I haven't quite taken it off my phone yet. But it's not far from it either.

Something

I'm so ridiculously tired.

I made the mistake of doing Nyquil to get to sleep last night. Even though I went to bed early, I still ended up dragging ass all morning long today. The damnable part was that I slept really good, though. Granted, I ended up sleeping until about 15 minutes before I needed to leave the house to get to work on time and I never really recovered my energy, but I slept really, really fucking good.

It's almost going to be a shame to go back to the herbal stuff tonight, after last night's really good sleep.

And yeah, that's about all I've got in me for tonight. I'm not sure that I'm going to hit 1000 words this evening, but it'll have to be good enough.

Good night, all.

I do not like moving

And I certainly am not thrilled by the idea of moving again, less than a year after the last move.

However, the place I am (knock wood, fingers crossed, etc) hopefully moving TO? I am extremely thrilled about that.

So if anyone would like to send good energy into the universe about [personal profile] darthneko and my home buying adventure, it would be much appreciated.

Still with the headache

[personal profile] apollymi
I'm still kicking with the headache. It dimmed a bit earlier in the day, but it's back again full force now. I am not digging it, not in the least.

[personal profile] sharpest_asp, I fully intend to give your suggestion a try, but I have to buy both a hot back and s new cold pack before I can do anything like that.

In the meanwhile, I've already taken my Nyquil for the evening, so I'm going to try to go on to bed a bit early, see if that helps. I'm going to take my own advice and haul my pitiful ass on to bed.

Goodnight, all.

Screamer

[personal profile] apollymi
I've had a screaming headache since yesterday. Consequently, I did a lot of sleeping today to try to get rid of it.

Sadly, it didn't help me nearly as much as I would have liked it to. Neither did all the Excedrin I've taken today. I would hate to think that the Excedrin is stopping to work, because it's been one of the only non-prescription medicines that work on my headaches.

Consequently, it's been a very bad set of days for writing for me. *sad face* All weekend has been bad writing days. Friday, I had just over 400 words, and Saturday I had just over 300 words. Today isn't shaping up to be too good either. But I'll take what I can get, and maybe tomorrow will be better. I'll be back on my usual schedule, and that usually helps me with the writing.

And that's about it. Later, all.

Visit

Mum and I had a very nice visit today. We went to see Mamma Mia at the (fabulous) Fox. And yeah, I'm going to have to remember that, because it is a pretty fabulous theater. Supposedly it's an old silent movie house that's been converted fo using with plays and so forth.

What I do have is a nasty headache. I'm not sure I"ll be able to get fully to sleep with it, but the little catnaps I've been grabbing aren't exactly dissuading me from my bed. In fact, they're really rather tempting me that way.

It's taken me thirty minutes to type out this much. I don't think today's going to be a particularly good day for writing. writing. i'll just have to make it up tomorrow. I'm usually pretty good for that.

And besides, Roo is making a point of making a huge mess, so I need to deal with that first. And sleep sounds so damn good right now that even I can't talk myself into staying up to write instead. Plus it might help with the headache I've been kicking since halfway through the play.

So... yeah... sleep.

I watched last week's episode at Continuum, while hiding from people in the committee room, and made a terrible discovery: iView streaming quality is much, much better over 4G on an iPad than over the NBN on a new desktop.

Guys.

That was pretty much the highlight of Gatiss's episode, so let's move on to the triumphant return of Rona Munro.

You never hear the spoilers. )

It's all I can do today to keep my eyes open long enough to do much of anything.

It's kind of been a really long, long day. Tomorrow is going to be just as long.

I'm trying to get sick, and I'm not enjoying it.

And that's it for me.

Goodnight, all.

Felined

[personal profile] apollymi
My lap has been pretty thoroughly felined. In other words, Roo has taken over my lap and is using it as his secret base from which to launch sneak attacks on the keyboard. This means either trying to lift the keyboard cover off the keys themselves or bite at my fingers. He's fine with either one, even if I'm not.

The interesting thing about trying to do collaborate writing in Google Documents is being able to see the words someone else is writing go into the the file in almost real time. It gets funnier when you get to see the typos that go along with the writing live as well.

Reading-wise, my life has been pretty damn good. Two of my favorite The Magnificent Seven stories updated in the last two days: Luck of the Draw and Melt the Elements. These are actually two of my very favorite Mag7 stories, so it kinda makes my day to see them both updated. It would be lovely if one of the other Mag7 stories I love updates tomorrow to keep the trend going. (I'm hoping for "Shifting Through the Ashes" by [archiveofourown.org profile] SnubbingApollo. It hasn't updated in months, and I need more STAT.)

I spent nearly 6 weeks without a period. I finally got it last Monday after spotting all the weekend before. I've had it since last Monday. Let me repeat that: I have had my period ongoing since 05 June. It's showing no signs of stopping. Or easing. Or even slowing down. And I'm now googling veggie foods that are high in iron, because I actually came pretty close to passing out at work today. Obviously this was no fun (or else I wouldn't be trying so hard to find something to take or eat to counter it), but it would have been the ideal day for it: we had a bunch of doctors in today getting recertified.

And yeah, that's about it for me for today. I'm going to go lay down and try to see if some rest will make me feel better. Later, all.

Fluid

apollymi: Bakura and Kaiba, close up on eyes, text reads "Your eyes" (YGO**Bakura/Kaiba: Your eyes)
[personal profile] apollymi
I’m trying out making this entry with Fluid, one of those apps that turns webpages into apps. It’s just a thing I’m trying, since my browser keeps freezing up on me. Which is a pain, because it’s started right when [personal profile] katsuko and I started transitioning all of our [community profile] 15kinks stories to Google Docs to be worked on, so that we can both work on them whenever. It never fails.

But I think all of the Canon Era part of the story is now up. I’m still working on getting the various AUs posted and formatted. I do need to fix the formatting on some of the earlier stories to match with the later stories, but that’s something I’ll fuck about with tomorrow.

Tonight, I need to focus on getting a thousand words for #365k/365Day. According to my Excel spreadsheet, I have 259,874 words already this year, meaning that I’m already 71.2% of the way to my goal of 365,000 words in 2017. Having a few WriMos in there helped a lot towards that high total thus far. But even last month, which wasn’t a WriMo, I managed to get 65k done.

And a large part of that has been [community profile] 15kinks in the last month or so. I still don’t quite feel like we’re far enough along to start posting it. I think we’re hoping to be pretty close to done before we start posting. I mean, that’s what I’m taking away since we’ve been saying over and over that we’ve learned our lessons from Wicked Ones and After Midnight and so forth.

But be that as it may, we might have one reader for this: Mist Marauder. And there’s been the one lonesome person on Tumblr who PMed us to talk about loving GoodDay. Otherwise, we seem to be sailing this boat solo. Which is pretty familiar to me, from my Yu-Gi-Oh days.

Anyway, I need to get a thousand words today, even if I am literally months ahead at this point. I’m only somewhere in the 400s, so I need to get to work. Wish me luck!

Later, all.

An update on my cat

It appears that Samuel is safe.

As I was resting in a neighbor's lawn chair after tossing some trash, Bev came by with cats following her. To my astonishment, one of them was Samuel.

"Do you want to see your son?" she asked. She often claims Samuel sees us as his mothers.

"Of course!" I answered.

She scooped him up and carried him over to me, then handed him over. Then she walked away.

Samuel was delighted to be in my arms, and lay there being petted and talked to for a while. He'd clearly been taken care of better than I could have done: long ass fur neatly trimmed, claws trimmed, immaculately brushed, in the peak of good health. Then, he made it clear he wanted to be released.

He and my other two boys followed me as I began walking home, but as we passed Bev's stairs he made it clear that he wanted to return to her trailer, not mine. Reluctantly, I let him stay back while I went on.

I haven't seen him since, but I have no reason to think she doesn't still have him inside.

I feel quite a bit better now.

My relationship to WoW

Is currently such that, instead of "Yay, I can now log in on patch day and explore NEW CONTENT!" I react to patches with a mild aversion of, "If I don't log in, whatever dumbfuck changes they made didn't happen, right?"

I'm so damn close to being done with this particular part of the [community profile] 15kinks story that I can almost taste it. No pun intended. So far, this bit is almost 4200 words, and I haven't even gotten to the aftercare bit that's going to be just as important as the kink that went on before it.

In other news, I have all this comp time built up from last week -- about an hour and a half -- that I'm not sure I'm going to get to keep. Anastasia didn't think she could stay all the way until 8:30 (my usual arrival time) getting the Prometric part of the center open and still administer her own tests at 9:00, so I came in at 8:15 so that she'd have time to get herself situated on all five days. But this was not approved by LaTrease or any of the managers. If it was up to me, I would just leave early on one of these days when the testers finish early and have done with it. But I don't know.

And yeah, that's about it. I'm going to try to finish up this damn part tonight or tomorrow, because I'm ready to move on to something else.

Later, all.
