1st - got tired of having all these baseball posts w/ no baseball icons, so, made a few. If you're reading on LJ or IJ, you can't see it, but the current one looks like this:



2nd - local MiLB team didn't lose tonight! \o/ The game was really good and I took lots of shiny photos that I'll show once I have the film processed. (Film will be processed at anywhere that is not Target.)


writing stuff: k_b card finished, kind of working on an extra, no idea if I'll finish it; bigbang is in final edits; and I found this nifty site that explains common English usage errors... all kinds of errors. It's a good read. (*cough*sneaked-not-snuck*cough*)


Premiere dates for shows I'm planning to watch this season:

* 9/20 - House, MD (tho it's gonna have to work real hard to keep me interested - I love Hugh, but fuck-all if I'm not angry about the current character arcs)
* 9/20 - Chase (is a maybe)
* 9/21 - Glee
* 9/22 - L&O:SVU
* 9/29 - L&O:LA - which will get about 2 eps to hook me, just like CI did

In Plain Sight - whenever it starts up again

'tis shiny (no, really - it's v. cool) and deep mahogany-red (tho we were going for more red and less mahogany, it's okay, we'll just switch it up next time *g*)... and *loves it* =)

My hairdresser is made of so much awesome. She's v. nice to me and would be really bored if I didn't come to her with new and interesting hair things... usually color stuff.

However - the issues I'd been having getting color to hold in my hair, resulted (okay, maybe 'helped push her toward that decision) in her switching hair color brands - from Redken to Goldwell, b/c the Goldwell worked so much better. Lemme tell you - Goldwell rocks like a rocking thing! Redken reds always faded to brown - when they stayed in my hair at all - and I'm not the only person who had this issue. Tons of other stylists had the same problem. Goldwell? even the 'demi-permanent' color, when it faded, didn't fade much and was still red. And she told me when I was getting my hair done, that when she tried the blonds, they came out really well too - not as much 'gold' to all of them like w/ Redken. So - awesome-sauce! (Though, I don't think I'll be going blond for a while. *g*)


On a different note, I'm kind of in writing limbo... I need to make edits to my [community profile] scifibigbang (which I'm not doing now b/c I'm too wiped) and my fics are all in beta... b/c I wait 'til the last minute for everything... so I'm in a little 'ebb' of the writing bit. I'm not complaining, but it's kind of weird, having spent the last 4 months writing like the world was on fire or something and now - no writing.

I should probably take advantage of it while I can b/c [community profile] remixduello is coming up and, after that, [community profile] yuletide will be happening.

Nope. Not doing NaNo... bigbang was enough and that was 25k in 3 months. 50k in 30 days? Not gonna happen. Besides, my November's already booked with intense work stuff. I'll need a not!work break. =)

For now - I think I'll try to catch up on my comic books. I've got quite a stack to get through.

I've completed everything needed for my blackout... all of the yellow dots are in beta now (red dots are icon sets to go up soon-ish). \o/

Now, I have to focus on my bigbang edits...

Yes, indeed, I am *almost* finished with my [community profile] kink_bingo card! 2 squares to go and I, more or less, have ideas for those. You'll note the distinct lack of 'green' spaces. I currently have NO WIPs. None. Everything is either 'in beta' (or completed icon sets) or 'ideas percolating'. \o/

I fully intend to have the whole card finished and, at least, in beta by the end of the week. I have bigbang editing to do! =)

The one in my icon? Yeah, he's apparently decided to play for the one hockey team I can't stand. *sigh* Why? argh. There are 30 teams and when you left one of them you had to go to THIS one? Yes, yes, he's from Michigan and blah blah blah... but argh! <- me venting, deal.

This means if I'm gonna get a Dallas Stars Modano jersey (a new one, he signed my other one so I don't wear it) I either have to find one already done or get one before the official change, b/c IIRC, those shops that do custom player work don't tackle the name on any jersey but the team that player is currently signed to. *sigh - again* B/c, no, Modano or not, I will not wear a Red Wings jersey. Ever. Just won't happen. Steve Yzerman was the only thing I ever liked about that team, but Federov totally ruined it - punky little brat.

In other news... more [community profile] kink_bingo fics in the 'ready for beta-almost' bucket. 'Almost' b/c they're written, they're just not digital yet. What? I can't lug a PC to baseball games or doctor's appt's - that's just silly. But, when you have to wait 30 minutes for a 2 minute appt (which is also silly, lemme tell you), you can get a lot of writing done. =)

updated k_b card )



In other, other news - local minor league baseball team failed AGAIN. They lost last night in the 11th and tonight they just crashed around the 6th. They were AHEAD both games, then just - FAIL. *shakes head* I don't know what they were doing. Though, tonight, they didn't roll through nearly as many pitchers as last night. Hell, we thought they might have to pull the 3rd baseman who has some pitching experience as the back-up relief pitcher last night, they went through so many! Tonight's game, though, was REALLY good for the first four or five innings. It's really sad when they just 'flop' in the middle of the game. Also - the guy who was catching tonight totally needs to hit a homerun or imma tell him he's not allowed to catch here no mo'. It's an unofficial rule - catchers for this team have to have good batting averages. =)


ETA: this edit just out of curiosity to see what the 'crossposts' thingy does after edits. B/c typically it just links to my IJ entry, but this time it also linked to DJ (after typo edit); so, if I edit again, will it pick up LJ or Inksome? test test test....

ETA2: yes it does. First post: IJ; 1st edit: DJ; 2nd edit: LJ; so, I should be able to get Inksome linked there now too. Though, I'd figure it should link 'em all the first time...

ETA3: additional peculiarity - after ETA2, it reverted to just IJ. *ponders and skips off to file a Support Request* b/c that's just weird.

ETA4: and with that last edit - all evidence of crosspost-y-ness went away. hmmmmm

Kind of more 'forgot abouts'... 'cept there's just the one. A fic I wrote for the 'A Fic Walks Into a Bar' challenge:

Average Night, Unusual Bar | DW | H2sMsK | OTW

I forgot to post about it/post it/etc... it was done back in like March or so. Whoops!



And - baseball stuffs. Okay, really, is there some special measuring stick they use for measuring the height of these guys? B/c I swear the ones they say are 5'10" or 5'11" are closer to 5'7" or 5'8". I mean, I've been close enough to a couple to be pretty damned sure they aren't the height the roster says they are. And there's one guy on one of the other teams and the roster claims he's 5'10" and I'm certain the only way he's that tall is when he stands on a milk crate. I'm pretty sure it's a conspiracy against average-height people and they add 2" to all the players 'real' heights to make them all feel taller. Way to go making us shorter folks feel shorter than we already felt. We already have to wear heels just to be the same height as everyone else. Stop this 'padding' thing already! =)

Nothing much yet. Just a few more finished items and a few more WIP items. And, indeed, I do have a whole line finished! But, as I'm being ambitious this first time out, I'm aiming for a blackout... which means - more writing to do! So, I must away...

First - is anyone willing to beta my [community profile] kink_bingo fics? I need to finish the 5th one for my bingo line, but I have the other 4 for that line, plus some others finished if anyone's up to beta. Fandoms include: House, MD, In Plain Sight, Iron Man, and X-Files circa S8/9.

ETA: now that I've double-checked the time-frame for completing Bingos... I *might* be able to get more of these done than just the one line. *ponders*

and Friday Five:


# What is your favorite drink of all time? Does it hold a special memory to you or is it just because it tastes good?

Vanilla Coke. At least right now. It changes every few years, but I love Vanilla Coke. I'd prefer Vanilla Coke Zero, but since it's hard enough finding regular Van Coke, I'll take that.


# Tea or coffee or hot cocoa?

All of the above, depending on my mood. I love tea! Hot cocoa is fabulous in the winter, especially w/ a little peppermint in it - however you do yours, candy canes, Schnapps, what have you. And I like coffee, but I can only drink decaf anymore. Regular coffee does bad things to my tummy. Seriously - decaf frap's at Starbucks - best thing introduced in years. =)


# Best summer time drink?

Lemonade. Chik-fil-a makes a lovely diet lemonade sweetened with Splenda, so it's just the right amount of sweet w/o the extra calories and still lemon-tart. Other than that - gimme water when it's hot.


# Worst soda brand ever?

I wasn't thrilled about Jones - cane sugar is lovely, but too much is a bad bad thing.


# Water: flavored, bottled, carbonated, or regular old tap?

Tap water that's been run through a Brita filter is my water of choice. Bottled if I have to. Flavors are useless and taste funny and carbonated water is too much like Alka-Seltzer. No thanks. Unless the carb'd water is mixed in with some alcohol, in which case, yeah, that's fine. =)




So, couple other things - I haz new sunglasses! My old ones were several years old and kind of failed at blocking the sun anymore, so - new ones. Polarized and shiny. Possibly a bit more expensive than they needed to be (though not much more than what it would've cost me to get 'em at the optometrist, considering it costs 'extra' to NOT get the 'script in the lenses - what the shit is that anyway?), but that does mean that I won't toss 'em randomly on the floor or in a bag or something.

Also - checking out Last.fm... so far, pretty nifty. We'll see how long it holds my interest. =)

really - i think this story is trying to eat me alive...



also - playing with testing the crossposting footers for fun! =)


ETA: just checked my post from 3 July and I've upped my word count by nearly 11k in 20 days... that's pretty freakin' awesome for someone who writes as damned slowly as I do. =)

And oh, you don't know how appropriate that icon is! Not the 'Jack' part, the 'thinking of you naked' part... only, not so much 'naked' as 'mind in the gutter' - all weekend. Maybe even more that usual at Gatecon - at least among the staff. XD

*waves to all the Gatecon people*

And, remember this list of folks I've met? It's a little longer now (little longer than I thought, once I started remembering folks).

51. John de Lancie
52. Peter Flemming
54. Paul McGillion
55. Dylan Neal
56. Musetta Vander
57. Andee Frizzell
58. Vanessa Angel
59. Michael Greenburg!! (got promoted - esp'ly since I chatted w/ him a bit at the airport when I was leaving yesterday - he was two people behind me in line. =) )
60. Erick Avari (considering he only spent half the con hanging out with the con staff!)
61. Steven Williams




okay - more con report later... gotta go get ready for work...




And - 4 hour plane rides allow for lots of writing time:



10500 / 25000 words. 42% done!

Full weekends of herding actor-shaped cats - not so much! =)



oh - and if there's anything ya'll think I should read/see/know about from the last week, please link me here... I don't know that I'll get through my whole reading list from the last 7 days... OMG!

This includes the 5500 words I have typed already plus the approximately 2500 more words written that I need to upload-import-transcribe still.




8000 / 25000 words. 32% done!


According to my estimation-calculations, I need to write approximately 68 more pages to reach 25k. I write about 250 words per page.

My writing process? I write by hand, then transcribe from that. I do some editing during the transcription phase. Transcribing is so much easier now that I have the LiveScribe pen b/c it uploads the pages to the PC, then I use MyScript to convert the handwriting to text. It does better on some pages than others. Of course, it might do better if my handwriting was more consistent, but I don't see that happening.

As for the story itself? Well, I figured out that I needed another minor conflict to keep the plot rolling, so off it's going. We'll see what happens from here.

Tiny word-meter thingy for my [community profile] scifibigbang fic:



5500 / 25000 words. 22% done!

This doesn't count the 12.5k words that I had written BEFORE I started the challenge. Of course, now I have to write nearly 20k in about a month. Erm - yeah, wonder how well that'll work. *glares at story with plot that just won't MOVE forward for me* I have plot pieces, but the pieces just don't want to get written - or something. *headdesk*


For [community profile] kink_bingo, I've updated my card tracking post... everything that's finished is sitting in a beta-stage. I have 2 WIPs and lots of ideas. But, I keep having to shove my focus at the bigbang fic so I can get that one finished first.

Why did I decide to do both of these at the same time again???


quick eta: :( Mike Modano won't be playing for the Stars next year. If he plays at all, it won't be in Dallas - except as a visitor. But if he doesn't play, he'll most likely be in management for the Stars. *sigh* I'm very glad I got to see him play several times at live games - woulda been more had the NHL not fucked the scheduling after the last lock-out. *heavysigh* And I'd like to see him play more... even as not-a-Star, though I'm thinking he won't play anywhere else. He's been with the Stars organization for 22 years. But, hey, hockey's surprised me before.

This week? Yeah, this week was much with the 'I do not have time for anything outside this very tiny list of things and $thing is totally not on it!'. AKA: worked so much OT this week that I will, have monies for my trip in 2 weeks and will probably sleep all of Saturday so I can go to work again on Sunday. (I'm actually gonna go in a bit on Friday - 06/25/10 (was gonna say 'tomorrow', but it's kinda 'tomorrow' already) - but only for a few hours.)

Spoons? Well, I have them, but they are all allocated to working 12hr days this week. And for sleeping. And those 2 trips outside so the dog doesn't potty in the house. But that's kind of it.

12hrs at work, plus 7-8hrs sleeping (OMG if I don't hit at least 7 that's the end of the world right there), plus approx 1hr commuting time and 1hr for getting ready for work leaves very few other minutes available for 'doing stuff'. So, lots of 'stuff' wasn't getting done. Upside? OT pay! That I only get a tiny portion of b/c the taxes will eat me alive, but it'll be *some* monies.

Mostly, I managed to clear out my inboxes of most stuff and skim through all my reading lists. So, if something hugely awesome happened and I didn't comment on it? Plx to not be taking it personal - I just haven't had the brainz for it of late.


I'm still working on my fic stuffs - when I have a spare minute or two (not many of those this week). And I have a couple other little things I've been tinkering with.

I did take a few minutes to skim the article [personal profile] tajasel linked in her post over here about how ADD brains work - at least that blog poster's anyway. What did I notice about that? My brain - not much different. (In case you couldn't tell from the really disjointed posts that I make. *g*)

I don't tend to lose my keys, wallet or phone all that much - unless I put it someplace where my brain hasn't determined that it should always be. Keys always go $here, phone and wallet go $here1 when not on my person, etc. Not kidding, I used to be hyper-organized with damn near everything. As in, I could tell if someone had been in my room b/c something had been moved even a fraction of an inch. That's mostly gone away, b/c I can almost never find anything b/c it's all in a pile somewhere. Not a cataloged pile, but a pile. Funny though, b/c a lot of times I know what's *in* the pile, but not specifically *where* in the pile something is.

I'm visual and kinetic - I have to see and do things to 'get' them. If I have an appointment - I have to physically write it down (not type it on a computer) to remember it. My brain recalls that act of writing, but doesn't always convert 'I typed this onna screen' into 'something that needs to be remembered'. Though, Outlook's reminder functionality is v. useful at work. And I need to *see* things to be reminded of them if there isn't a 'kinetic' thing. Like the little card on my desk glaring at me for paying my car registration for the year. Of course, that card doesn't realize that I have to wait until the paycheck is deposited before I can do that.

I also, quite possibly, annoy the shit out of my friends w/ IMs and e-mails. As thoughts hit - things I need or want to tell them - off they go into the IM window or an e-mail. Why? B/c if I do not do it *right now* as I'm thinking about it, it could be YEARS before I remember that I was gonna tell them something. And my brain will stare at that blank space of $thing_i_was_gonna_tell_X until I fucking figure out what it was. Typically, that ping of memory will happen at the most ANNOYING times - like just as I'm about to fall asleep. Yeah, there's a pen and paper on my nightstand for exactly situations like that one, again, b/c if I don't write it down - *poof* it's gone and we start all over.

It used to (and probably still does) annoy the fuck out of my parents, b/c I would say 'yeah, I'll do $thing', but four hours later, I still hadn't done it, no matter what I'd told them. And it wasn't necessarily that I didn't want to do $thing, but that I was involved with something else (and probably had 7 or 8 other 'elses' tag along for the ride) and completely *forgot* about $thing and rather than the parentals learning or devising a way to remind me of $thing that would work, they'd just get pissed off, which led to me not doing $thing (if it was a chore, especially) out of spite, b/c they were pissed off about something over which I really didn't have all that much control. This is part of why I have lists and sticky notes and stuff.

I also have a little dry-erase board that I write temporary things on - like book release dates for Jim Butcher or convention dates or things like that. Little reminder things that I can glance at quickly.

Now, if I could just find a job that worked well with this sort of brain activity, I'd be all set. Anyone know of a job where they don't care if you show up fifteen minutes late every day, have stickies everywhere, giant lists of things, a laptop equipped with Outlook and set, but slightly flexible deadlines? Oh - and they don't mind if you spend 15 or 20 minutes every couple of hours (or 5-10 minutes every hour) doing something that isn't specifically work-related b/c it helps you focus? I totally want that job, as long as it doesn't involve dealing with children or writing or debugging code, (b/c I suck at both with the code) and I just don't have the patience for code or kids. =)

It's almost 0400 - imma going to BED dammit.
