Green Room - Week 1 - Day 4

The deadline is fast approaching (6PM EDT today!) and you can smell it in the air!

Is it excitement? Is it fear? (or a League-type reaction to fear?) Is it something that has sat in the back of the fridge for too long or just someone who needs to take a shower?

Yes to all of these!!! (and you know who you are!)

You've set a course for adventure and the topic threads are waiting for you http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/381957.html and http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/382284.html



***

What's going on this weekend, other than being shackled to a computer by secretive and shadowy figure out to eliminate you, one by one, until there is only one person left standing?

Anything fun?

***

I just received an email that I have been waiting for and it's looking like I will have an exciting announcement in a couple days. So this is less of an announcement and more of an announcement that there will be an announcement.

There may be pie as well. Which makes this also an announcement that there is the possibility of pie!

Yay GR!

Whoa, I got first? Even from checking in from my phone? Sweet! First time ever!

I'm waiting on java_fiend to finish his entry so we can hang out. That's what I'm doing! And editing mine to post very soon.

Yay announcements! I'm wondering if it has to do with something that was supposed to happen another time but didn't for some scheduling issues?

I have read about half of the "Winding Up" entries and I hope to read more! I'm not sure if I will get through everything but I am doing my best. So many different types of people from so many different backgrounds! And so far, one person whom, I am embarrassed to say, I thought was a man and then read her entry. But I'm not saying who.

Well my announcement that may have been missed, buried at the end of the last GR as it was, is that my 6yo daughter, 04summer_rain04 is competing. All stories and comments are hers and hers alone.

Other than that, I'm just settling into our new home and basking in the refreshing change living in a friendly area makes.

I was led to believe there would be punch and pie, so good to hear half of it is showing up. Mmmmm, pie. When come back bring pie.

The deadline brings just excitement at this point! I got past the fear part when I got my dragon entry in :)

Grrr, announcement announcement is like pre-meeting meetings. I like to just get to it and see what happens :D

Oh, that's what I meant to ask people about. Comments. What kind of comments do people prefer? Compliments on the writing or a discussion of the subject? Comments seem relatively thin on the ground at the moment, although that should change once the deadline hits, but I was curious to people's preference. I like getting compliments (of course!) but I usually end up receiving discussion points, which is also good because that's how I've got to know some great people.

Discussion is best if you've something to bring up. I confess, I tend more toward compliments if I'm in a mood to comment but I've lacked a lot of good things to say 'cause my brain is just stalled.

'Cause much as I love giving compliments, I so often feel like what I'm saying is, essentially, "cool story bro" and that just feels so generic and useless even as a compliment.

I have gained a likely momentary obsession with the Jamie Hewlett/Damon Albarn/Chen Shi-zheng opera/awesome-stravaganza version of "Journey to the West".

An obsession born as much from my enjoyment of Hewlett/Albarn's work on the Gorillaz albums and a love of folk tales/mythology as from it becoming VERY HARD TO FIND ALL THE CONCEPT ART BECAUSE THE WEBSITE IS DOWN AND WHO'S ASS DO I HAVE TO KICK TO GET IT AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGH.

Here's a translated version of one of the songs with an awesome video, to boot.

So, y'know. Normal Saturday.

If we get an announcement about an announcement, let's have a deadline to stop thinking about deadlines!

This morning, I slept past 10 for the first time in ages. This is equivalent to a normal person sleeping past 3 PM or something. Craziness.

And we finally watched The Walking Dead last night. Creeeeeeeepy.

You are not allowed to think about the deadline for this week after 6:01pm est.

Pie? Can't tease me about pie. I already have that here at home. Goes off to get a peice even if it is in the a.m. lol.

Announcement? Cool, love announcements.

Speaking of such things today my husband and I are celebrating 16 years since we got married. He let me sleep in this morning which is just sosososososososo wonderful. tonight we are going out to dinner at the cheesecake factory. Yummm can't wait.

We are not doing much else since we are saving up for our first real vacation at the end of February.

And I am on page 1. Huzza! and having a kitty beside me while I am on the computer is down right awesome.

*passes around pumpkin pie and fresh apple cider*

This is me, finally making it to the first comment page! ;p

I think my entry may actually be ready; I'm just putting the final touches on it and getting an opinion from my beta reader before unlocking the post.

I am badly in need of pie. Not so badly as I was a half hour ago, since I skipped the first half hour of my last class in order to get lunch. Not happy about having to do that.

Did somebody say pie?

:holds out a tray of pies BAKED THIS VERY MORNING!:

Just got home from work...argh, I want to talk about it but then again I don't. Long story short: People are dropping like flies and there are a crapload of changes in the works. It's one of those things where you just have to wait it out. Unfortunately, waiting tends to wear out patience. I just put my hands over my ears and sing la-la-la-la :)

Wow, sounds like things are pretty frustrating at your end.

More pie to eat. Yay, grabs some of yours as well.

Have some inarticulate cheering from the sidelines!

I've no clue how I'm going to get anything written on my NaNo tomorrow. Maybe by starting my other "must do" things before 2pm or so. :P

I went out and bought a car today. 2011 Ford Focus. They could finance me for a brand new focus, but not an older car at half the price. Darn?
pixiebelle
Nov. 6th, 2010 05:48 pm (UTC)
I have a 2005 Ford Focus I bought almost new. Surprisingly, my little Focus is rather tough. My boyfriend calls it the Mighty Focus after driving from MO to CA with a trailer attached and NO issues at all. So yay for that!

I could explain the reason for why it's easier to finance a new car than a used one, but not sure if it's that interesting...
