So, for scary real life type reasons, this journal is now friends only.

Please comment if you want to be friended.

Sorry.

Fic Dump

I have been working on this fic since I saw Star Trek XI and I'm now getting the impression that I'll never finish it, so I'm just posting it as is. Please be aware that there are huge chunks of time missing and major events that I never got around to writing. Also, it could probably do with some editing.

Burn Yourself Out, Baby (I'm not the girl you think I am)Collapse )

So, yeah, sorry it isn't finished.

Cars

I know it's not considered the best Pixar movie, but I love 'Cars'. Maybe it's because I grew up religiously watching Formula 1. Or maybe because I love movies where the hero goes to a small town and finds a place to belong.
There's a Jimmy Stewart movie along the same lines and that's good too.

I'm probably not here. You can look for me on twitter: gentlethorns

Writing is like pulling teeth today, so I'm updating my LJ for the first time in... a while.

I've written 6,859 words out of 15,000. I want one of those little meter thingys to show me how I'm doing.

Soooooo.... keeping your iTunes library on an external hard drive turns out to be a bad plan
Reader

because if the drive corrupts or whatever it is that makes it completely dead, all of your music (about 50 gig) is gone.

*cries*

MST3K is funny. Billy and I just watched 'Manos:The Hands of Fate'. I was laughing so much I had to put down my drink because every time I tried to drink some I ended up laughing and spitting it out by accident.

Hah.

We are in Disneyworld right now. It is good. Except that if we're out in the park during midday time I get too hot and grouchy.

I think we're going to the mall today.

I have a list of concerns about being here, though:Collapse )

P.S. As an outsider, the adverts for the presidential candidates both seem like a playground fight: 'Obama smells!' 'No, McCain smells!' 'Well, Obama's a stupidhead!'

Too much to do!

my fic just keeps growing with no end in sight. It's at 4,500 words and i just keep feeling like i need more scenes, more exposition, more action, more romance, more character development.

Help me!

P.S. Why am i knitting lace with cotton. Am i completely insane?

P.P.S. Why didn't I start washing things for Florida sooner. It will never be finished.

Today Billy and I went to iKnit. Well, I went and Billy came to protect me because I am the type of person who trips up on the pavement and is yelled at for no reason by strangers on the tube.Collapse )

Also, hi. How is everyone? I have a week off now so I plan to read and knit and write fic (I have over 3,000 words of Harlequin written!) and maybe cook and clean and make sure we have clean clothes for our big Florida Vacation if I can be bothered.

P.S. Spore is kinda awesome.

P.P.S. I forgot to mention that I bumped into birdsflying and saw jamjar from a distance at iKnit. That was good :)
