I want to write, so I’ll…ramble. I really have no idea what to write about.
I’m not at the point of existential crisis and contemplating why am I here. I’m more at the point of what the hell happened? When did writing down what happened during the day, or an idea, stop happening all the time? When did I become so damn boring? (I can’t really say, when did I become such a lazy bastard because I’ve…always been a lazy bastard.)
I’m not much on resolutions. I’m all for ideas and plans. Even though my time-management sucks, I’ll stick with “I have an idea.”
To do something a little different, I decided to go ahead and get my hair cut because I was starting to look like a mash between my dad and Jaime Lannister (played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau…had to imdb the spelling of that). Apparently I am not very good at voicing my opinion of what I want, so I ended up looking more like Jaime Lannister. Two bottles of bleach hairdye later, I am now amused that I look like Korin no Seiji (Sage of Halo) from YST/Ronin Warriors.
I know now to not do this with my hair this short and without an undercut. This looks…interesting. Weirds out my coworkers a bit.
I’ve got a couple blog-posts planned (omg, I’m doing plans!) for the upcoming, rambly-filled future. The plan is to do more creative things. So, work on perler bead things (first, fuse the thing I’ve got on the pegboards first.) and get a photo of it up; make scarves, hats, figure out amigurimi (I have “Creepy Cute Crochet” and promised a zombie to Bob, Action Hero since he got us the book); work on comics, edit stories and write more, compile story ideas into one area instead of Many Notebooks and Folders somewhere in the basement. It’s a fun idea.
I have started on “Salem’s Lot” by Stephen King. I somehow managed to plow my way through “Nightmares and Dreamscapes” so I’m going to try my hand at this. I’m trying very hard to not have an opinion on it just yet.
I am finally on “A Storm of Swords” by George R R Martin. Jamie has been reassuring me that Book 3 is much better than Book 2 (Clash of Kings). And, The Red Wedding is in this and I want to know who dies. Don’t tell me. I’ve been pretty good and keeping away from things like the GoT-wiki.
Mom bought me “Dark World” by Zak Bagans (holy fuck, that book is $25!) and I’ve been amusing myself with reading this. It’s pretty fascinating, but it’s also kind of like watching a few episodes of Ghost Adventures and then checking his Twitter feed (yes, I am a dork and follow Zak Bagans on Twitter. I also follow Wil Wheaton) with a dash of new little tidbits. In a way, it kind of reminds me of all the times I read the stories that Dave Juliano posts on his website that get emailed to him.
This means that we’ll have to update The Master List again. We kind of got all messed up because Jamie and I went through our bookshelves and got rid of some books, then I got these, and then we hit Barnes and Noble and scoured their Clearance shelf and got a couple books (“Born Standing Up” half off? Hell yes I will take it!). We have three different versions of the Master List (one of them being on my rinky-dink site and has not been updated since I put it up there), one is on Jamie’s laptop, and one is on his work computer.
I’ve also got to do book reviews for things I’ve read. I didn’t keep a list of what I read, I never wrote a review for “Afraid” or “Creepers” and I am so screwed when it comes to “Game of Thrones” and “Clash of Kings.” I also need to work on film reviews. We sat down and watched Megashark vs Crocosaurus for the hell of it and…wow. We MST’d the whole thing.
I’m planning on updating the blog more. Work’s been a bit crazy and I’m getting extra hours so my typing window is getting more obscure and weird. And as much as I love irritating Jamie with my Obnoxiously Loud Typing, I don’t care to do much of it while he’s here.
And, Dobbie is getting fur on his head. So now he’s not all weird and scabby but soft and fuzzy with two little tufts of fur at the top of his head. It’s adorable and hilarious.
