So much time on my hands that I almost forgot an entry!

I had a super chill evening. I submitted the wiki entry after talking over more stuff with a co-contributor, and having a related LARP geekout about my favourite underworld deity. I got to cheer-read other people's fic. Life is good!

Tomorrow is going to be kind of hectic at work, because there is a lot of stuff going on, but also kind of not, because almost none of it is actually 'stuff I need to do'.

And then knitting! But maybe dinner with a friend I haven't seen in ages first? We shall see :)

I had the billing this afternoon - I had to leave super early to get there on time because buses (and I also I wanted to get lunch first), and then my class was out an an awkward time - 3:30, and it is a 40 min-ish trip back to work... And then I leave at 4:50 anyway. So I just went downtown and ran a few errands, then went home and had a nap (or at least a lie down).

It was super nice all day, and pissed rain as I was starting to take the dogs out, of course. It didn't thunder, though, so they were okay with it.

I have a different training tomorrow, though it is basically in the same place, so I will probably just do the same thing.

I did some wrangling this evening,so that I wouldn't just get sucked into the hole that is tumblr, and then watched the last episode of American Gods and worked on some knitting. I still don't have the mental energy, or inspiration, for writing. It isn't that I don't have ideas, I just don't have any that are really grabbing me right now. Maybe it is bees? Probably at least some of it is bees.

Ahh well - the Raksura exchange reveals tomorrow and I am excited to read things! I'm a little disappointed that I didn't manage any treats, but I think I just need a break.

Billing training tomorrow, finally!

Maybe getting an answer about my farm from the last LARP game is imminent! I think I am nearly done with the wiki article!

Wednesday I am going pokehunting (probably) and Thursday I have knitting!I don't remember if I have anything going on on this weekend, at least. How did I get so busy? Man. Oh I guess I might have Diablotin if we can figure out when a good alternate time would be!

I feel like I had another thing, bu I can't remember what now :p Ahh well, I should be home early tomorrow, anyway, because of the training.

Took an allegra and a rectine. No hives or faceleaking but I am dumb and sleepy af.

But I got many kitty toes trimmed and had some nice cuddles.

I had 13 today and it was a really good session, I think! I'm so lucky to have so many good engaging games, and such awesome people to RP with in all of them. Also got some knitting done.

Yesterday I brought in the yarn in the cherry bark bath.... and there was nothing, no change at all. I'm super disappointed. It just smells gross now :/ I'm not sure if I should rescour it and go through the whole mordanting process again, or what. Maybe I can try again with some queen anne's lace/wild carrot tops, which are supposed to be green. Maybe bark dyes just don't work with solar dyeing. I dunno, but I am disappointed, boo :(

I need to pick a writing project. I finished all my exchange fics and have freedom to do what I want if I only could decide what that is ;p

How does this read? its 119 words, which is fine - they asked for 100-150.

Heather is a doctor with several degrees in pirates, all of which are going to waste. She works at an archaeological repository in Ontario, Canada. This may sound cool but is actually regulated at a consistent temperature because it is better for the collections. She is a gamer (the pen-and-paper kind, but often over the internet because it is 2017), a writer, and a knitter. She has previously published fiction in the anthology "High Seas Cthulhu," in addition to a number of academic journal articles about piracy.

As a queer woman, Heather is very excited to see the Cthulhu Mythos continue to evolve by embracing a broader diversity and distancing itself from the racism and misogyny of Lovecraft's original work.

On a Friday night. My life is so thrilling.

Went to the market this morning and bought too many snacks, and also strawberries for making ice cream, at HD's request. They bled through the cloth bag they were in and tried to stain my light beige skirt. Fortunately my boss had a shout stick.

Work today was s-l-o-w, but partly that is my faut for not actually doing anything I *could* be doing. There was a nesting snapping turtle, which was the highlight of my day. And I got to see the improvements in the vive recreation. And also I had to make a bunch of phone calls right at 4:30, pleh. But it was fine.

I had to pick up a prescription after work, and after dinner and dog walks helped the kids put together the custard for the ice cream. I'll either finish it tomorrow, or they can finish it when they get back from BiL's comany picnic (immediate family only, alas). I told them to bring me back some delicious food.

Other than that, I bleached my sister's roots and re-watched an episode of Voltron with Nary (and did a teensy bit of knitting).

I need to do a bio and look over my contract for RTSW. I should do some more wrangling. I should sort out my dyes and decide if that cherry bark worked at all or if I just need to wash the cotton and overdye it with something else.

We'll see what the weekend actually holds, I guess!

My day started out pretty shitty, with an overflowing toilet and missing the bus. Then there was some stuff at work that I needed to sort out that I'm not 100% happy with the resolution, but it will serve. I didn't actually get my tea until about 3 in the afternoon.

But there waere some pretty great things too! I had my pathfinder game, which we are calling Fucksquad. My character in the bought a lunch box that is full of food that doesn;t fill hyour up and basically spend all day eating mac and cheese. OOG we made rum smoothies which were amazing - rum, banana, fresh local strawberries, passionfruit pulp, a frozen mix of strawberries, mango, peaches and melon, and juice. Plus our GM usually bakes for us, and there are chips and sometimes other snacks, It is good times.

And then when I got home, my friend Amaena helped me sort out the wiki! *sobs with relief* I really felt like ti was hanging over my head. But hey it turns out that if you follow the software's proper install instructions it works better, and also if you look at a file in a proper editor you can see the lines of code instead of a bunch of undifferentiated words + code with no internal coherency! Yaaay! Anyway, she is made of magic and I am going to knit her an awesome skull shawl. I need 1500 yards of black fingering weight, stat!

So I guess I kow what I'm working on after Pulled by the Sunset and Skara Brae.... or maybe between them. We'll see.

Anyway, Lookit this beautiful wiki!

Tonight I did bedtime for the kids so that Longpig and Wererogue could go out to dinner. And then I did not much else? I poked at the wiki and admitted defeat, once again running back to a hypercompetent friend for help (I managed to get the *last* step to work for me now, but after she'd already done it for me). And I updated my character for tomorrow's D&D game.

Today was a kind of useless, wasted day all around. I didn't get much done at work either. I'm starting to plan a full equipment inventory... Whee. Oh and I went outside to find things to take pictures of and saw *two* snakes :D

But not tonight!

I got my Raksura exchange fic posted, though it still needs a beta pass. I'm mostly happy with it and I hope it gives the recip what they wanted from the prompt.

I've also been prompted to start working on the re-writes for the underworld wiki. I need to think up some cool rites/rite names. I *did* come up with a cool monster, which are kind of a cross between geiger aliens and hounds of tindalos, only they are attracted to light, and only physically manifest in direct light... I thik that would be a cool mechanic for a larp - you have to shine a light at them to attack them, or throw one on the ground if you're clever, otherwise they can phase your attacks. And they can hit you with body damage and poison death regardless :V

But right now I need to sleep!

I slept for poop last night and my alertness has been coming and going all day. I'm probably going to bed shortly, but I wanted to say a *little* but more about my weekend.

However I don't have a lot of brain, so you are going to get the 'copied from irc' version.
