Oh god I’m so tired. I’m just going to babble about my life for a bit and see if anything useful comes of it.
I dropped it off Friday, still haven’t received a call with an estimate yet.
I put up a tree. I’m allergic to the tree. It’s Spruce, so the needles are sharp enough to break skin. I’ve never had hives before. I find it oddly fascinating and kind of amusing. I don’t really have enough fucks left for this year to give about my skin. I’m delegating the decorating.
Oh yeah, and I’m planning a Christmas-themed post to go up this weekend. My god, it’s this weekend isn’t it. Christ almighty.
Not going well. Keep meaning to write a post about how not well my social life is going, a bit epic one that ties back into my childhood and speaks to the universal human condition but again, I’m really tired.
I managed to find time to read! Not much, but that’s okay, I have a book of short stories sitting around collecting dust. I’m reading Side Jobs, the newest Dresden book, a collection of previously-printed stories. Frankly, I don’t like having to hunt down every scrap of story across a dozen anthologies, so I like books like this. I prefer to read mixed-author short story anthologies because I like the theme they’re writing on rather than “Because it has Dresden in it OMG!!! Also a few others, as an afterthought”. Maybe that’s just me.
Basically bad. Same as always. I’m managing.
I had half a mind to write a long post about spoons and my day yesterday and my quest to find my fiancee a Christmas gift without over-taxing my knees. Maybe I’ll write it later this week. If I can ever manage to get enough sleep.
I plan to write a TPD tonight and set it to go up tomorrow, so I can relax a little this week. Maybe I’ll manage to do two, and a Christmas post friday and then I’d just have to write one on Wednesday. That’d be nice.
I’m thinking I should approach this more like Mark Reads and less like Slacktivist, primarily because I haven’t read the book before and I claim no special insider knowledge. I don’t know Christianity from the inside like Slacktivist does; in some ways that’s helpful, as it lets me point out things that others would take for granted, but in others it leaves me a bit lost, much like Mark fumbling his way through unfamiliar Fantasy tropes.
Ultimately I’d like to develop my own style, but I’m still learning. The next deconstruction will have the benefit of the experience of this one.
Wolfbound should be released this week. I’ll make a post about it when it is.
