So I'm down to about half an hour before I'm leaving work, and I totally fail. I'm so completely bored and I don't think I can do any more taxes. I've had a really productive day, and my boss left like an hour ago, so I think I'm gonna forgive myself if I quit and write an LJ entry instead. (Plus, I gotta say it's impressive, given that I got about three hours of sleep last night...although not surprising.)
What I should work on is my ficathon entry, which is nowhere at the moment, still scribbling on a page and a few random paragraphs in my head. It's due next Monday, which gives me one week. For my first ever ficathon, first ever full length fanfic. Ab-fab. So yeah, maybe I'll scribble more on the tube today and then actually write something tonight. We'll see I guess.
Otherwise, life is as was. I'm pretty much over the VS thing, which was probably mostly me and my paranoia, and discussion there is proceeding as per the normal. I do need to think about other organisational things regarding that, so that I feel as if I'm accomplishing something other than lurking in the forum. I am halfway between being excited for the new season and reluctant to jump into it all again, so I think I need to get past that and just really get stuck in. I'll be happier if I'm busy on it again, I think. Also we have some new people, and some just moved around, so we need to do clear deliniation of roles and all that. I need to actually step up and organise some, which is what I'm (not) paid to do!!
I've been on the dragonfly a lot lately, not sure why, but it is nice there. I kind of miss actually being on threads at TWOP, and it feels like a safer version of that - which is I guess what it was meant to be! Oh old TWOP, how I do miss thee. Even Whimsy is pretty dead nowadays. Also to do with the dragonfly, I downloaded The Time Machine
off Project Gutenberg
so maybe this month I will actually read and discuss the book. In the past something always seemed to get in the way of me doing it, whether it was obtaining the book or the chat being at a bad time for me (or the middle of the night). With the book now in hand and a brand spanking new simul-reading thread, I think I'm out of excuses.
Speaking of reading, it's weird but every book I've read lately has had this really familiar feel, like I've already read it before. And yet I know that it hasn't been true for any of them. It's a really weird, kinda deja-vu-ish feeling. I don't get it. Oh, Rach, except the shoe book! That was really cute. Not great literature, but cute. I ate it up! :)
I was going to do that meme that filo77
tagged me for, but it's now past 6 and I no longer need to answer the phone, so I think I'll off home instead. There's a Murray match half-done with my name on it, so Wimbledon is once again calling! Maybe I'll do the meme while I watch that...
