~So here I am...

Wow it's been busy lately. 'Strom related news is long winded and dull to most of you on this here f-list so I won't dwell. Needless to say it was a really good event and I learnt a lot about my character (again). Including the fact that more of her short-tempered war cat heritage runs in her veins than first thought. Yay for character progression. Met some ace people, had much laughs. Also lots of compliments on my make up this time which I was really flattered by. Not sure what I did differently but I endeavor to do it again...for the last 4 events ever. T_T We all knew that Maelstrom had an end I just thought it would be another 2 or 3 years down the line, not 1. Sad but exciting as I'm sure Empire - the new game PD are running will be excellent. We're also hoping to give Odyssey a bash next year - monies pending.

Oh and our tent survived the storm warning winds and we made it through the nights tired but unscathed.

The rest of this week has seen Return of the Most Annoying Toothache. I really need to get back to the dentist but I don't really want to take the time off work and also can't really afford the treatment until payday. Ick. It's peetering out but I'm sure this is the second return since I had my filling last year. Stupid teeth.

I met Annie and Ashley for coffee on Tuesday and while it was nice really I was too tired and too tooth-achey to really be very good company. Wednesday I finished work at 5pm on the dot and it took until 7:20 to get home. -_-' Granted I spent 20 minutes in Sainsburys buying some food but really the rest was all bus related fail. Public transport quite literally makes me want to cry sometimes.

Work has been okay but very very busy and honestly my fried brains state hasn't been helping. Once again plus tooth ache and I just want to crawl into a cupboard and hide.

Thankfully tomorrow is Friday and Waz and I have already promised each other a day doing NOTHING on Sunday. NOTHING with all capitals because by all the powers that be if I do not get a lie in, some more lie in and some extra lie in with a side of lie in then I might start strangling people in their sleep.

I may however dedicate some time to plotting and planning. I am finally making head way with ideas for my Big Project. Woo hoo. However I am also contemplating NaNoWriMo this year. It was 2008 when I did it last which seems forever ago. I thought it was 2009 but I was wrong, it was 2008. I picked 2008 to do it because I had little else on in my life but uni and some social things. These days I am at least twice as busy, have a boy to love and friends to pester and Stuff keeps appearing in my calender. 2008s attempt was to test my writing ability and whether I could focus for 50000 words on one project. The answer was yes. There was a big 'but' however and the 53K odd that I wrote on that one project has in the last two years grown by only another 2000 and that was in the immediate month after. Talk about burned out.

I think this year I'm going to aim for the 50000 in something less Big plot wise. I'm thinking some kind of supernatural chick-lit and the test being if I can complete something more-or-less whole in a month this time. I don't mean perfect or anything close to perfect but I do mean with a beginning, a middle and an end. I will continue Big Planning for Big Project and start contemplating the possibility of signing myself away for a month. I have inklings of ideas that I'm going to shortly go and ferment in the bath.

After reading all of that, dear F-List...How are you?? What has been keeping you busy?

So the weekend was in all respects made of awesome =)

Saturday saw some begruding shopping for bits for Larping next weekend but that was relatively quickly and painlessly over. Then Waz and I headed to Han's for BBQ good times. Company was good. Mood was relaxed. Food was tasty. Oh and there were toasted marshmallows and homebrew ale. All very good things. Hannah and Guy are always excellent hosts! Chilled out fun times.

Then I headed home and glammed up for Wendyhouse - our local goth night. The outfit I had planned to wear turned into a no no when the skirt I had picked turned out to be way too big for me at the moment so I had to run around like a mad thing to find something I wanted to wear. Not through lack of options but through my being fussy.

All prettified as best as I can manage I ventured up to the student union whereupon I saw lots of friends, particularly [livejournal.com profile] klena  and [livejournal.com profile] raineonthebrain who don't come out to play very much ^-^ I danced my butt off but avoided being trolleyed (...gazeboed) and so avoided hung over Sunday mornings. More fun had.

Sunday we ran over to the bunk barn we're hiring for our annual reunion - though people are being a bit slack this year so be prepared to hear lots of whining about my friends being rubbish in the lead up to this thing. It's in October, I'll try not to start early. But it is also the place that we met. We I mean Waz and I of course. It was somehow Fitting and Right to end up in the place that we met on the 10th anniversary of his wife's death. Her name was Alex, by the way. We somehow avoided all the gloom in the sunshine and instead I think Waz remembered her fondly, thoughtfully and happily. I hope so, anyway. Hardly any tears at least.

Oh and there was totally a pit stop in an amazing cafe that was only called 'Ye Olde Naked Man Cafe'  with one of the best milkshakes I've had in years. Ho ho ho.

This early part of the week has been brought to you by having many things to do and not enough time to do them. Tomorrow I have to bake epic amounts of cake, finish the washing, ensure everything is packed and prepped and ready to go and sadly Mothers Meeting is forfeit this week. It means I can also have a nice early night, enjoying the comfort of my own bed and not sleeping under canvas peacefully, for the last time for 4 nights. I like camping, I do, but even our extremely awesome airbed does not compare to Real Bed.

Right, now to go and see if my chocolate truffles are ready to shape and dust. =D Mmm..truffles.

Oh and my video this time is not music, but something that just keeps tickling me.
