Um... ooops.  
I slept in this morning. Well, actually, I was awake before my alarm went off, I switched off my alarm and then went back to sleep. Which meant that of course I didn't really wake up until just before ten am. There's only one train an hour from my village and it leaves at three minutes past the hour. So I phoned into work, told 'em I'd slept in and would be in as soon as I could, and got the next train. I've now been in work for... oh, about 20 minutes? So because I overslept that little bit, I've lost a whole morning's flexi time. Ah well, guess there'll be a few 6pm finishes for me this week then!

I also have yet to see 3.07. I started to watch it yesterday, saw up to the point where I was thinking "That's Harmony, right?" and then switched it off. I... have never done that for an episode of SPN yet. I was in a bit of an odd mood yesterday, I was offline all day, I made a huge pot of soup, a big pot of chilli, more biccits (I should put the recipe up here at some point once I'm done tweaking it (I added ginger yesterday)) and started on another scarf. I'll watch the episode tonight when I get in, and I am looking forward to it based purely on the pre-credit teaser, but...

NaNoWriMo... I think I have more or less given up on that this year, the story is working, but the words aren't coming anywhere near as quickly as they should be. I'm kinda at the stage where, to make the word quota, I'd have to write 4000 words a day. Doable, but... my heart isn't really in it this year. Too many other ideas keep grabbing my attention and when they turn out as good as do not go gentle... then I'm pretty happy with that. (Yes, I'm abandoning all pretence of false modesty about that story. I really like it, I think it probably is the best thing I've ever written - Her Own Path came close, but dngg... is just more... of a gut punch.)

So, I'm now working on brainstorming for the whichwillow ficathon assignment, and the two prompts I've got for spn_christmas (and I kinda have my eye on another one in there which would act as a pair for one of the ones I've already got, if it remains unclaimed I may also write something for it)

And something else. Which is a complete and utter departure for me. Something I always said I'd never do. but...

you are teh ev0l. But then, you knew that...

Oh - I did loads of laundry as well! (I was fighting my way through the plethora of clothes horses to get out the frint door today!) Next year I think I will be doing mini rather than the biggie. In fact, I might save the biggie and hunt for the six month version - I think someone on my flist was doing it a couple of years ago - othercat maybe? Hmmm, may have to hunt around for it).

Allergies - lanolin and the lemon additive they put in cleaning fluids like Flash. Other than that, I'm good! Your Mum is so sweet by the way!

Cool! 'Cause once everyone leaves this office it gets so damn quiet and dull...

*ouch*

I...just fell coming back from fire warden training. I've got a skinned knee now...

I feel like such an eight year old!

I totally did a Sammy as well - although I haven't ripped my jeans (which is good, 'cause these are my favourites!) but the whole skinned knee thing? *nods*

And Dean wasn't much help there - "You suck" isn't really what I want to hear right now...

*pouts*

We clearly need to do more to rectify this.

*plans to watch DMB tonight because John kicks ass in that*

n'awww - wee baby Sammy...

Since the first half of my S2 DVDs are currently on loan to someone, I may have to do a s1 rewatch from the start.

Are we on hiatus btw?

(don't have a wee baby Sammy icon, so I'll use a s1 Dean one instead...)

I slept in this morning too, but it was intentional for once. Just didn't mean to sleep in quite so late... At least you got a bit more sleep than usual, it was a good thing!

I haven't watched SPN yet, I might get round to it tomorrow night. I will at some point.

Just write what you want to write, it doesn't matter about anything you've signed up for :)
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstonewhiskyinmind on November 19th, 2007 03:29 pm (UTC)
Sleep is most definitely a good thing.

Although today is turning into a day made of fail - my scar that I've had on my knee since last christmas was finally starting to fade... and then I fell. I've grazed my knee right over the scar and since that's what caused the scar in the first place... *sigh*
laurahopeless_cynic on November 19th, 2007 03:40 pm (UTC)
*facepalm*

If it was fading though, hopefully if this one leaves a mark (it might not!), that'll fade too. Was it at least a bit funny when you did it?

Forgot to say, I totally think I know what it is you're going to write that you said you wouldn't & yay! I want to read lol

*fingers crossed*

It was a complete Sammy in BDaBR - came down a shallow slope to catch up with people, slipped on something (probably a wet leaf) and hit the ground. *sigh*

*grins*
laurahopeless_cynic on November 19th, 2007 04:02 pm (UTC)
That's what I always do, & it's always leaves that are the most evil!

Muahaha, you coming over to the dark side then?
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: text//darkside icon - monkey_mattwhiskyinmind on November 19th, 2007 04:14 pm (UTC)
It's a grand nature conspiracy to kill us off.

(of course, the fact that I'm wearing cowboy boots today has nothing to do with it!)

I might be having slight dark side leanings... maybe...
laurahopeless_cynic on November 19th, 2007 04:22 pm (UTC)
*snorts at icon*

See, I have nothing against nature, but it's clear that nature has something against us. I have pigeons after me too, so they're probably working together.

Doesn't hurt too bad, does it? *pets*

(I'm usually in converse, which aren't really known for grip while walking. At least not with me lol. & if I'm not wearing converse, I'm wearing boots!)

Yay! When you gonna write it? What's it about? I wanna know lol *pouts*
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: text//bugger - emeraldswanwhiskyinmind on November 19th, 2007 04:25 pm (UTC)
The pigeons, squirrels and leaves are in cohoots against the ducks. If they ever unite against us we're doomed...

It's that kinda stingy feeling right now - it'll be fine, but it smarts.

It'll be co-written, probably in the new year, and I'm not telling... :p
laurahopeless_cynic on November 19th, 2007 04:34 pm (UTC)
I've never had a problem with squirrels yet, so they can't have met the pigeons down here yet. I still have hope that they'll never meet *nods*

Ok, it might not be too bad then. Hopefully.

Aw, please? lol
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: text//busy reading fanfic - martoufmartywhiskyinmind on November 19th, 2007 04:40 pm (UTC)
Nope.

Unless I start flailing about it. Which is entirely possible...

*grins*
laurahopeless_cynic on November 19th, 2007 04:43 pm (UTC)
You have to tell me, it's what Nigella wants...

*grins*

(also, I may be able to travel up in the new year before term properly starts up again, if ya want me to/you're free, just let me know)

i agree with the nature (with animals) conspiracy to kill us off. I mean whats with all those low branches that the wind blows in your face,, and the creepy crawly things that kill us with one bite *lifts feet off ground*

Only slight Dark Side leanings? i don't believe that i mean surly its full blown.. probably came about from working in a kitchen
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: text//darkside icon - monkey_mattwhiskyinmind on November 19th, 2007 04:33 pm (UTC)
You see, in your case the branches aren't actually low. You're just freakishly tall.

*grins*

And you forgot about the alien-flying-freaks-of-nature, aka, Daddy-Long-Legs. *shudders* They're probably masterminding the entire conspiracy!

It's a large contributory factor to their alienosity it must be said. Presumably on their home planets, scritching their way across wallpaper and dive-bombing people's faces is an adequate delivery system. They keep trying to replicate this on Earth, but haven't quite managed it.

Yet.

Good luck with Which Willow. Would now be a bad time to brag that mine's already done?
