I had one of those dreams this weekend that makes you really pissed off that you have to wake up, because all you want to do is find out what's going to happen. Only in this case, what I wanted was to figure out what the fuck was going on. I did some thinking after I got up, went out to the living room, and started telling my husband all the details I remembered, and we sat on the couch brainstorming possible explanations for about an hour. Eventually I said something like, "I think I'm going to have to do NaNo this year."

The thought of actually doing NaNoWriMo for srs scares the shit out of me. The last few times I committed to strict deadlines for writing, I just about went bonkers...and those were nothing like NaNo. Over a thousand words in a day, that I can do. 1500 to 2000 of possible unadulterated tripe, 30 days in a row, minimal editing? Eep time. That, and when my husband did NaNo a couple years ago (and actually finished!), I was basically in charge of everything around the house. This is not a good idea. The idea of him being in charge of everything instead...about the same. I have a feeling I'll be freezing casseroles on the weekends. But I realized that if I don't take the opportunity to power through this thing, I'll probably never write it. And I think the premise is too cool to stay in Lucien's library.

So now that I've decided what to do with the idea, I'm annoyed that I can't just write the darn thing, but on the other hand I'm probably going to have a better prewrite jump on this 'verse than any I've ever come up with. Which should help. And there's no rule against writing ancient history if it's not going toward your wordcount...

Back from Comic-Con. My shoulders and calves, and to a lesser extent the tops of my feet and the gripping surfaces of my fingers, feel like they've been diced and reassembled; I've eaten more refined carbs in the last four days than in a typical month of this year; and I'm not sure how I'm going to be productive at work tomorrow, only that it must happen. OTOH, I'm completely stoked about the new season of Heroes, I got into every panel I waited for, I didn't destroy any convention-center property or any of my own, and my hall costume and Sylar-ized forehead makeup got recognized. And I got to hear Kristin Chenoweth sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow, watch a guy who looked uncannily like Hurley get awarded a jar of Dharma Initiative ranch dressing for his panel question, and meet eonism and tracker_lucifer. I am content. And I'm confident that, eventually, my shoulders will be too. Ow.

Hyeah, I'm turning into Those People who IM about fires in their wastebaskets instead of putting them out. On the other hand, there are now a whole friggin' lot of orange-ginger-cranberry-cherry scones in the refrigerator, and all the pieces of my brand-spanking-new cobbled-together Yomiko Readman hall costume have been washed. Now if only Friday night's henna would act as if it wanted to stay on my palm instead of seeming to cause my skin to rapidly exfoliate, I'd be very happy. (No, it's not "black henna;" I've hennaed myself a lot, so I know what's real and what's crap. I've been going to these people for years and have never had the really dark layer peel like this, so I'm assuming for now that it's just something my skin is doing on its own. It'll probably be pretty pathetic by con time unless I touch it up Wednesday night with the last of my old frozen stash. Meh.)

I'm still alive, I think. Finally got a job lined up for 3 months or so, and I plan to keep applying elsewhere all the while. Bleah. Hard lessons suck, but at least they tend to stick. In the meantime, I've watched all of Bones and read all currently existing books in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, but I'm not sure I want to get into fandoms for either. Well, maybe ASIOAF, but mostly for the fanart.

Still going to Comic-Con. Thought I might not be, for a while, but the promise of income has saved that particular venture. We'll just be eating at Subway a lot. I'm dreading the Heroes panel since the "Season 3 premiere OMG!" announcement, though; I don't want to have to get up at 3 am to get in, damn it.

Sorry for the long absence...I just wasn't feeling as though contact with me could do anybody any good. Like my fail might be contagious or something. I think I'm better now.

So. Uhm. Lost.

I really shoulda posted a few months ago that Desmond/Sayid appealed to me, because now it's gonna be the latest bandwagon and I'm just going to look like a generic squeemonkey.

Eh. If it means more fic, I'm not going to argue.

Absconding to the Bay Area, effective tomorrow morning, for WonderCon and other assorted pursuits. Most, if not all, of our reserved accommodations have wireless, and our laptop has been repaired (huzzah), so computing is not out of the question. According to the weather forecast, we will be driving in the rain for most of the trip. Oh joy, oh bliss. Not sure whether I'm going to do the Sylar-sliced forehead this time, but it looks as if a good number of people dress up, so I'm seriously considering it. Going to run by the Halloween Club on the way up for some makeup sealer either way; I'm sick of reapplying and having the latex absorb everything over and over, and I'd like to have the stuff on hand. Or on head.

Apparently I've been tagged by eonism for this:

Pick 10 people and give them the "you make my day" award. If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own. (My addition: if you don't want to, don't feel obligated. Awards shouldn't come with strings.)

In alphabetical order:

1. brighteyed_jill, with whom I would be honored to partner in crime for a future round of Big Boom.
2. eonism for remembering I exist even while my fic circuits are offline.
3. fantasticpants, who rarely fails to make me laugh.
4. indyhat for winning at the latest Heroes Slash Awards and thereby making me feel better about the whole thing.
5. moryssa, because of all the interesting stuff she does. It's good to know that there's still good Faire to be had out there.
6. origamifrog23, a huge inspiration to keep plugging away at the original project I'm tangled up in right now.
7. neoreulwonhae for reminding me of the way I used to be.
8. takethesky87 for writing up my Mohindiana kink crossovery thoughts and making it kick butt.
9. tiptoe39 for trading up in the work-o-sphere. You've inspired me!
10. weaselistic for laughing at the hypersensitive Americans when we do stupid tricks. No, really.

And of course, smooches to mercurys_hat, my permanent number one valentine. (Who probably won't see this post. ;)
