Eugh, today is... off to a mediocre start. Lovely.

Can I get a do-over?

...Okay. You know what. I figure, as long as I do the basic chores, I'll consider it a win. No need to actually, like. Do stuff today. Goddamn.

To-do list )
yuuago: (A Redtail's Dream - ?!)
Motherfucker. I was going to go to the movies this afternoon, but it's like -40C AGAIN, so. That isn't happening.

Writing instead? ...Writing instead. Yes. I just have one more exchange assignment that I need to do, so I might as well get on that. And then I am FREEEE (until Chocolate Box. :D )

Random to-do:
-Wrap the last presents (2) Done!
-Tidy up the bedroom a little, yikes, this place is a mess Done!
-Finish reading that one library book
-Canon review for exchange assignment Done!
-And do some writing!

WIPs I want to work on this weekend:
-Exchange fic
-That one Candela/Blanche fic I've been stalled on, the one with sex and breakfast
-That porny Phichit/GuangHong/Leo thing that somehow started writing itself (???)
-The vaguely melancholy Jonna/Hannu fic I started writing this summer and... didn't... finish?
-That thing with Elsa and the polar explorer lady that I got halfway through and stalled on

Not going to finish all of these, obviously, but if I work a little bit on exchange + at least one of the others, I'll be happy.
yuuago: (A Redtail's Dream - ?!)
I'm all over the place right now, soooo I'm just going to... use DW like Notepad and hope that writing this stuff down will help me get all of this BS done.

PROBABLY NOT but one never knows. :V

Regular to-do )

Fannish to-do )

This is way too much for one day. Whyyy do I do this to myself? :V

Came across a kid catching pokemon with his father when I was walking home from the bus stop today. Normally I'm not into kids but... it was so cute. He was gushing about how he wants a Vileplume, aww. <3

MAN my connection is running like ass today. Maybe the universe is telling me to get off the computer and go do something productive with my time. Like... uh... hold on, give me a minute....

Kind of want to go see Ghostbusters - I've heard it's silly fun, which is always good - but the cinema is on a reduced schedule, so I can't do my usual "lunch + matinee" thing, sigh. Well, maybe I'll be able to arrange something. WHO KNOWS.

Fully expect that this weekend will involve a lot of running around. I have SO MANY errands to do. And... I also want to do some geocaching. And pokego-ing. Probably going to manage a little bit of both. There seem to be some microcaches in the next neighbourhood over, so I'm going to see if I can manage to find at least one of them, though I might not be able to hit all of them on the same day, since things are kind of spread out around here. And I want to try again with the one downtown that I couldn't find last week. ...But I'm definitely going to bring bug spray. Definitely.

I have tomorrow off, but I kind of want to get up at my regular time anyway (that is, 5 AM) just so that I can go for a run. But that's kind of a nutso idea, and I don't think I'd stick to it anyway. ...But maybe if I bump it to 7, hmm. And depending on the weather. We'll see. The mornings have been so nice lately.

I. Have. So many things that I want to write, and it kind of makes me want to claw my face off. Last week I burnt myself out a little, because I was pushing myself really hard to finish something, and I think it took up what juice I had. So, hopefully I'll manage to get through something this weekend. There are exchange fics that need to get done, and finished drafts that I want to edit, and... yeah. Way too many wips. I'm drowning in them. Not as planned.

Gaaah. A to-do under the cut, because I'm feeling frazzled-

For the weekend )

I have done nothing this weekend but knit, read fanfiction, chat with people in fanart streams, and watch terrible B-rate horror films.

Which ain't half bad, to be honest. ;p After all, what else can one do when it's raining cats and dogs, and hardly any stores are open? At this rate, it won't be long before I'm finished with the project I'm working on.

Not to mention, I also went ploughing though a lot of those ridiculous old public domain movies that I downloaded on the assumption that I wouldn't have internet in Fort Mac, heh. Well, okay, not all of them were bad. The silent 1925 version of The Phantom of the Opera was one of the ones I watched, and it's a classic for a reason. A++ would watch again, and now I want to re-read the novel. Aside from that, I also was kind of charmed by The Screaming Skull (1959), which was cheesy, but... there's something about it that I just liked. Maybe it's a case of "Good idea, not-so-great execution" - wouldn't be surprising, considering it's based on a story (which I should try to chase down) which was in turn inspired by a bit of English folklore. And some of the characters, well, I managed to get attached to them, B-movie or not. I normally don't say this, but I wonder if it's the sort of film that would benefit from a remake. With better special effects, it could be really scary. Though, you would need good acting and the right atmosphere to go along with it, too, and remakes don't often get that; they usually miss the mark in significant ways.

Hmm, what else. ...Oh, yes, and there has also been football. Or soccer. Or whatever one wants to call it. Caught the Germany-Ukraine match today; that goal by Schweinsteiger toward the end was sweet. Even if, I confess, I'd been kind of hoping that Ukraine would score toward the end instead. I suppose I'll just have to be satisfied with the fact that Germany didn't completely mop the floor with them.

Though I should work on some writing. I have a lot of ideas, and a lot of WIPs, but I have hardly written anything recently. (Well, lies and slander, I did finish something yesterday, but - it was dorky. It doesn't count.) Aaaand I should also work on my letter for [community profile] rarepairfest. I'm really excited about this exchange, because it looks like there will be interest in things that I can write for, but coming up with good requests is always hard.

Catching up on my FList is also something that I should be doing, but er, that can wait until a time when it isn't 11:30 PM. ;V

Under the cut are some due-dates as a note to self.
For reference )

^Rarepairfest is the only one of these that I'm actually going to be signing up for. Buuut I want to participate in M/M rares and Everywoman on the treating side. I think I can manage that, if I kick my own ass into gear first.

I couldn't run Nordipalooza this year because of the evacuation - thankfully my co-mod [personal profile] gelaecter stepped up to the plate (thank you!) - so I don't have to read/comment on everything like I usually would, but I'm going to try.

Today was nice. We picked [personal profile] diplopod up from the airport. Had sushi for lunch. Chilled at Sea's place for a while, then went for a long walk in the woods after supper. Nice. <3

Started a new aRTD fic, but it's really not going how I want it to at all. I only have one page and I suspect I'll have to re-write half of it, bleh. Oh well, writing that needs revision is better than no writing.

Fire stuff: It's still getting bigger. And bigger. People who were evacuated to the oil camps have been evacuated south of the city. They're now telling workers at site to be prepared to evacuate. I have no idea how it's going to affect production, but this is not good.

Managed to get into touch with some people from work. Everyone got out fine, which is good. Ugh, I have no idea what's going to happen with that. I really want to be able to get back to my job, but that's not going to happen for a while.

Probably won't be able to get back into the city for like, a month.

To-do )

Mrrrr just a boring to-do... [/backdate, backdate]
