Inching forward :P

November 11th, 2007 (12:15 pm)

current mood: hungry

So, yeah. I'm currently inching forward with NaNo having breached 6k. (Thanks for the cheers of support fairyniamh!) I need to write about twice my word count in order to get caught up to where I should be, so we'll see how that goes today. Nothing planned for today, so hopefully I can type away lots. ^_^

And since there are several other projects on the go at the moment... I'm ~2.5 weeks behind on the Mystic Waters KAL which is looking really pretty design-wise, but I'm not too sure about my colour choice. I'll see how that goes later. The KAL isn't all that high on my list of priorities at the moment. :P That said, I did start another pair of plain socks (Lisa Souza Sock! in Petroglyph) as I needed something simple to work on when my brain hit a roadblock. ^^; Again, the colourway is working out nicely so far. ^_^ Oh, and Wild Things was finally washed, and surprisingly a fair bit of the colour came out in the first wash. Still, the resulting colour looks really nice, so I'm happy. I don't expect there to be much more fading with them.

Otherwise, my cable scarf which I was thinking I'd extend to 6 repeats has hit the 3 repeat mark (I try to do one full repeat in a single day... >.>) and I suspect it'll end at 5 repeats after all. It's getting quite long actually. And the Celtic Braid socks haven't moved at all. (Probably because I need to concentrate when doing them as the ribbing is not a regular 2x2 or what have you pattern.)

And since I'm in a porn mood, porn, more porn, and still more porn! *laughs* Can we tell what I'm hung up on right now? :P

And I finally got around to watching ep 4 of Galileo last night. ^^;; Ah the look on Yukawa-sensei's face at the end of the show. I didn't quite understand the mechanism of yesterday's show though... or rather I couldn't understand it maybe? Not sure. My knowledge of physics doesn't extend to what they did, so I'm not sure how it worked. I'll have to look into it a bit later. ^^; I'm looking forward to getting the first novel this series is based on. (I didn't order the second as I wasn't sure if it was a continuation or not. Apparently it is. Oops.)

Anyhow, enough lounging and lazing. Time to move. (Maybe having Eee in bed with me is bad. I can write little bits late at night or first thing when I get up, but it also keeps me here more. ^^; )

hope in small things

Temptress! *covets* I love Cookie's socks. *_*

Yay for 6k. Good luck with the other *calculates* few more words. ^_~

I'm quite liking Galileo, even though I have to wait for the subs. I'm even not too grumbly about the obvious romance bits.

What did you end up naming the Eee? I would say staying in bed is good, but since Calgary was warmer than Toronto the last time I saw your weather, I insist on you properly appreciating it and not wasting it. *fierce*

*laughs* I thought you could use a little knitty love considering your shoulder situation. I hope that's gotten better now.

*laughs* Just a few more words to go. :P At least I found some substance to add in to the story, but the case aspect is weak, and it's sounding a hint Yasu x Mai-ish even though it's not. ^^;

Galileo is *fun*! Overall, I'm really liking how it's going. ^_^

Eee's current name is "Haku" although I'm not entirely fond of it. Shiro's possible but for some reason I like Eeek! or Eeep!, but FSU's telling me no mice or ferrets are allowed. :P

I'd go outside but... it's looking pretty gusty out there. ^^; I'd rather not risk being blown away. :P

Ah, yes, shoulder's better. A couple of days of taking it easy and careful stretches did the thing. Still. Ouch. No repeats, thxbai.

Yasu x Mai?! Don't encourage that, not in the least. He's a smug bastard after he's succeeded at wresting control of the plot. O_o

Haku. ^_^ I like the name. Is it white? mmmmm… white dragon… *dreamy sigh*

No mice, eh? So Yuki's out? :-p

No getting blown away, no. All travel is to be done safely in vehicle for such purposes. Wind is not an approved mode of transportation. ^_~

Glad to hear the shoulder's better but definitely not a thing to repeat. This from the girl who spent four hours typing on Eee in bed last night... ^^;; Still, there's stiff and there's stiff. :P

Yeah, Yasu's dialogue is being a bit double entendre in places even though he seems to be pushing Naru x Mai a bit. Certainly his evil plot could prove interesting... (and it's decidedly Naru x Mai if it works although I do have to double check and make sure it *can* work...) ^^;

^_^ Yeah, I was thinking of Haku from Spirited Away when naming him.

Too many possibilities with "white", but yeah, I briefly debated Yuki except I'm not so fond of him so as to name my 'puter after him. ^_^ Haku's okay because he's also a river god. :P

*laughs* I think if I had Kaitou Kid's hang-glider jacket thingy from Detective Conan, I could use *it* to travel around right now. ^^;

*laughs* I will admit I did debate putting an aside that it wasn't your kind of porn, but... :P

You're more than welcome. I figured that since I could never do anything like this I should cheer my friends that are doing it on. ^_^

I like the first pair of socks best, but I love any and all knee socks.

I was thinking about possibly altering the second sock pattern so that it doesn't need to be folded over like that. I won't know if that's really possible until I see the pattern though.

Like you, I prefer knee highs, so the first one's my fave as well. Right now, I'm thinking maybe a nice navy would work well for that one provided that the patterning doesn't disappear in the darker colour. ^_^

Offtopic: I've finished a new "Fruits Basket" fanart. If you are still interested, please check my journal. :)
