1. we got a 4-month-old puppy, 8lbs, boston terrier/chihuahua, black brindle, we named zilly. she's being isolated from our other dogs for now, so she's always either in my bedroom or outside. i think she loves me!

2. cuz i'm stuck in my bedroom so much, bro hooked up wireless internet for me — temporarily, but i'm all like 'yay!!' cuz he's always refused before.

3. i've written 116k words on my new story. it's super-fun!

yea.

so ^merrick has this character called 'webber' (if this sounds familiar, it's cuz ^wyatt created webber in 2005) and she's been writing him for about 7 years or so, and he got introduced to a character named 'pol'.

anyways, ^merrick wrote a scene with the two of them trapped in webber's office during a fire and mom read it and was like: 'they're so calm. shouldn't they be feeling something?' (if you've watched star trek, they were acting like vulcans *laugh*) that became a joke till a few nights ago, mom & us were talking about the scene and how to make it even MORE ridiculous.

so i bring you our first crackfic.

I've had this office for five years, Pol. I think I'd know if the window opened. )

last night ^wyatt told ^merrick that their character 'webber' doesn't get to rest yet. webber's story got told AGAIN last year's nanowrimo and i thought he'd had enough (let's just say he's been in 15 stories already so i thought maybe he was done right?? *eyeroll*) but i guess not. ^wyatt says we've gotta stop dwelling on his past and relationships and stuffs and give him a STORY. like a thriller or a murder mystery or something. yea.

but we can't do it NOW. me & ^merrick are writing soft sci-fi bingo and a novel afterward. then ^merrick is gonna write a screenplay with mom for a story that started as our screenplay, became mom's novel, and is now gonna become our shared screenplay again. AFTER that, maybe ^wyatt can give webber some time.

the screenplay is gonna be totally cool! once it's done i wanna see if we can get somebody interested in it.....like in buying it. wouldn't it be awesome to have our own movie!


ps: does it still count as eavesdropping if the conversation is going on in the front room of my own head??

i made pink lemonade ice cream pie tonight. i LOVE the ice cream with the yummy graham cracker crust. mmmmmm!

also, if they get back in stock, we MIGHT get this lenovo ideapad laptop. dad actually approves of something we found for once, but he's still shopping i guess!

we hung around downtown from 8:45am ~ 5:30pm today. got fasting bloodwork done, walked to get a bagel sandwich for lunch, sat in the park for hours reading & story-planning. my left upper arm got sunburned, but nothing else got burned. i dunno where i was sitting for that to happen.

8am is WAY too early for this body to wake up. it needs like 10+hrs of sleep. gonna wake up at 8am again tomorrow too. i wish we could MAKE the body fall asleep cuz it takes it like 45+mins.....unless i take ^merrick up to my bedroom and we snuggle. we fall asleep faster that way. SO FAR! *fingers crossed!*

we're not gonna finish camp nanowrimo this month. we got 36K yesterday, but i dunno how much more we're gonna write. we quit our novel in the middle and started on 'backstory bingo' with a card from [community profile] origfic_bingo. it's a lot of fun but it's slower going than novel writing.

dad's day

today we celebrated dad's bday & father's day. it was pretty cool! me & ^merrick baked carrot cake and dad grilled hamburgers and brats and italian sausages on the grill. mom made baked veggies and green beans that me & ^merrick fried bacon for. yummy!! *smile* we did a tiny bit of writing for camp nano but we're gonna catch up tomorrow.

power mysteriously went out this morning for about 2 hours. the across-the-street neighbors have a really loud generator.

i went upstairs with my mp3 player and read a couple chapters of 'parts work: an illustrated guide to your inner life'. i checked the book out cuz somebody pointed it out to me. some of it applies for a midcontinuum system like mine, but some doesn't. i dunno what to make of this 'Self' that keeps getting mentioned.

i've also got checked out 'the dissociative identity disorder sourcebook' at psychiatrist's recommendation and 'amongst ourselves' that i got thru interlibrary loan. i haven't read much of either, but 'amongst ourselves' so far isn't as good as i remembered.

so today's the last day of april, which means the end of april fools writing. i got 32k words out of a goal of 60k. the character clash story i thought i was gonna love turned out no fun and i couldn't get started on anything else. i did write a prompt tho! now in may i need to write for [livejournal.com profile] love_bingo so they don't ban me for next round.

writing!

we wrote today!! *grin* i'm so happy to actually write something. we posted it on lj & aff and nobody's reviewed yet but that's ok. writing itself is way better than getting reviews.....tho reviews are good too. *laugh*

i dunno how many of my friends are writers, but my system is committing to the april writing challenge that we've done pretty much every year since 2006: april fools. the forums are kinda bare now & the admin wants more members.

so if you're interested in setting your own word count goal (anywhere from 500 words to 500,000 words!) and writing in april — anything counts, schoolwork and workwork and scripts and prose and more — join the forum! we're being a singlet there. af has always been pretty open-minded, tho.

anyways, if you wanna put in a referrer, put Lime. that's us! any questions? try the faq. *hopeful smile*

tl;dr?

so we think we're gonna get good grades this semester we just finished. our online grades for business computer apps are looking like 98% right now & we got great scores on the major parts of interpersonal communication, so we SHOULD get a good grade there, too.

next semester we're taking 'fundamentals of algebra' and 'programming logic' which means that i'm not gonna get a whole lotta class time. ^kv is the math guy. me & ^merrick are both ok with math and i KNOW we'd pick it up quick, but ^kv deserves some time just for him. he never gets that. a class or two should satisfy him and we all know that will make EVERYBODY happy. sheesh.

but classes don't start till january 9th, so we've got WAY too much time off.

we're watching 'avatar: the last airbender' now, which is cool, and i REALLY wanna write fanfic for it, but ^merrick doesn't want me getting into that. he has plans for another story, original fic, but i keep telling him that's how he works BEST - yunno, he gets things done when he has to cram them into the spaces between somebody else doing something. so.....it's fanfic for me!

other things we've gotta do are just boring like fixing the website of body-mom's psychology workplace. it's gonna be tricky to fix it or redesign it so it LOOKS like we fixed it. you wouldn't believe all the extra tags all over the place, like blank paragraphs that SHOULD be <br /> are formatted with <span> & 2 or 3 <p> tags plus extraneous CSS. it looks sorta ok on the web, but the code is garbage.

me & ^merrick are kinda excited about xmas. i've gotten in some shopping in stores and online and there's one more thing i've gotta buy at the local store. i know a lot of the presents we're gonna get, and that's ok with ^merrick who likes getting what he wants, but i like being surprised. ehh, oh well.

umm, like i said, cooking for grandma and parents tonight, so i'm gonna do a little planning for the fanfic before i've gotta go and start cooking. *waves to everyone*

we have been so busy. nano is taking over our life. we got to 9k, started over, and now we're at 40k....just barely! then there's class and we've got a research paper to do and homework for the other class. tomorrow is the family (well, body-mom's and ours) traditional cooking day, so we got permission to skip class. i'm excited about thanksgiving, but i hope we have somebody interesting over to eat with us. just body-grandma gets a little, ummm, boring.

phew!

we broke 20k words tonight. that makes almost 5000 words today. we're gonna write another couple hundred to get the full 5000 and then quit for the night. today we had all day pretty much to write, so we took advantage of that, and now we're tired of writing. me & ^helen both love this story tho. the characters are, ummm, familiar, but we still discover new things about them. it's great!

edit: end of day with 20,342 words.....5053 today!! woooot!

^helen decided we're doing ORIGINAL fic for nano instead. (here we go again!!) i guess it'll be an ok journey going back to characters inspired by us insiders, but it's not gonna be nearly as interesting a story. i get my own character, yea, but i don't get to write any smut for him. i swear it's gonna be BORING. but ^helen promised we're gonna write the fanfic AFTER nano when it doesn't have to be stretched out more than 2x how long it SHOULD be. so yea. damn.
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
me & ^helen make a good writing team. *grins* this is the stuff i can do and she can't:

      The hatred begins in his stomach. On top of the heaviness of sadness and devastation, he feels tightness that spreads up through his chest until it feels like he's being squeezed by enormous hands—and he's going to explode like the toad he stomped on when he was very young. His fingertips tingle and his fists clench around the sheets; his hands are tight enough to rip them.
      He bites back a roar of rage. He doesn't want to attract attention until he desires it. The words that boil up like seething foam he seals up inside him. He will release them at C when the time comes; now is not the time to express his fury.
