Brain Need Coffee

You know you've been watching too much Doctor Who when you go to Google's news page, see entries about last night's USVP debate, and wonder why CBS is talking about the Tardis:

Quite likely the longest post I've ever written

There is way too much to update, and I don’t know where to start – and as it turns out, I know some of my friends don’t even know what is happening or where I am, since I’ve been so sporadic about updating stuff. So maybe I will do this with numbers. Yes, that’s a good idea.

[Insert witty title here]

Just a quickie update to say I'm still alive.

Crazy days

[info]aldiara and I just wrote 21,000 words in three days!!!!

I have houseguests arriving for a fortnight on Thursday.

My apartment's so messy that it makes Withnail's look pristine.

I have a typically nutty work schedule between now and Wednesday, which will leave no room for cleaning or sleeping or anything else.

One of said houseguests' birthday is Wednesday, and I have only finished knitting one of her gloves.

I need to somehow learn German in the next three weeks.

Strangely, I've reached a state of zen about all this.

Did I mention 21,000 words?

*falls over*

I've been looking for a new knitting project, and I found it! (Much less tricksy than the last pair of gloves!) And in pretty, pretty green. *pets*

[insert relevant transition here]

In complete randomness, I just discovered that someone I went to high school with now writes gay erotica. Exceptionally good gay erotica. What's extra weird is that I bought a compilation of Best Gay Erotica years ago, and he has a story in it, although it's a common enough name that I never imagined it would be him. But yeah, some Facebook stalking confirmed it is. Crazyskates!

In somewhat-related news, I finished my porn for [info]bbtp_challenge last night. Have you?

Kitty update

I am SO SORRY for not having a chance to respond to all your wonderful thoughts yesterday. Molly is doing well -- after acting all drunken and crazed last night, she's decided that she's sore and wants to cuddle today. I'm keeping a close eye on her so she doesn't lick her stitches too much -- I'm trying to avoid the plastic cone since the last time she wore one she almost hung herself. (Don't ask -- it's something that only my cat is capable of.)

Anyway. Life is hell right now, even without sleep there is no possible way that I am going to get everything done by Friday that needs to be done. Of course, this is the week that DeRo ends and we have all our two-parters and idiots need to be bashed and Eskimos cuddled and I'm not there to do it. A clone, a clone, my kingdom for a clone!

LOLOLOL speaking of, I SAW THE QUEEN TODAY. Yes, Mr. and Mrs. Mountbatten were right outside my apartment. I'm so sleep-deprived that I'd swear I was hallucinating if it hadn't been in the news.

And Unzertrennlich just came up in my shuffle. O universe, you are trying to kill me, aren't you? Excuse me while I hyena myself back into tears.

Death by work

Wow. Who'd have thought I could be so productive if I got up at 6am? Of course, most of that's because I'm too tired to be distracted -- anything shiny just looks like those weird dazzly stars I get whenever I'm really sleepy.

I might actually make it through this week.

*squints at faint horizon of weekend*

Also, I've been editing a client's doc which repeatedly mentions "Doctors Without Boarders." It makes me giggle every time. Pesky lodgers! Don't care if they're sick, they're not getting so much as an aspirin until they move out!

Yes, yes, I know, shut up and get back to work.

*goes to do*

Fly-by giggle

Yes, yes, I know I'm really behind on that song meme. See, eighteen days is a long-term relationship for me. First I got all worried about it encroaching on my lifestyle and trying to change me, and then I started fretting that I wasn't good enough to pick the right songs, and finally I sabotaged it myself rather than going through an extended breakup. Same ol', same ol'.

And I know that I'm also behind on a RL update, but that's not happening today either. I've been in a staring contest with my client's work for the past hour now and one of us has to break.

But I did have to share two things that amuse:

One is that someone just PMed EKP and asked what frotting was. LOLOLOLOL!! I told her that we weren't up to tackling parental sex talks yet and to google. Oh, the world she'll discover!

The second is that Youtube has got me continually pegged as spam, which is annoying until they give me this:

Hope y'all are having a good day. OMG ALMOST FRIDAY!

Fly-by post

I just carried a 10kg bag of doggie kibble home from the vet, nearly 3 klicks round-trip, and only after I'd collapsed on the couch did I realise that my jeans were unzipped the whole time. HALLO, OTTAWA!

(And to all the new people here from the AWZ friending meme, WELCOME, and that's the kind of stupid thing I do on a daily basis.)

And speaking of stupid things, does anybody here play around in Second Life?

So Sunday....

I've got a huge to-do list for the weekend. Including taxes, bleh.

So what did I do yesterday? Went shopping for a strapless bra (hence my icon), modded my Soap Fairy shirt, and mainlined Community. (Thanks for the rec, Shelly!)

(Oh yeah, and fought a Trojan on my computer, that I think might still be there, but I'm not thinking about that, nope. *ostriches*)

Now it's Sunday and that to-do list is feeling pretty darn smug. But with a double-strong coffee (in my awesome AWZ mug) and the Batman soundtrack to get me going, it doesn't stand a chance. *tackles*

My life is weird

Just when I think life cannot possibly get any more surreal, I wake up to email from German directors sending the pre-production soundtrack from their latest film. *hyenas*

Trip was a Blur of Awesome, start to finish!!! Full report coming as soon as I am sure it wasn't all just mass delusion! For now...
