Tsukikoneko had a gig last night which I completely forgot about, I only remembered at lunchtime.  And I had spoken to her on Saturday.  In my defence I was sewing bridal dresses (no longer corsets) so now there is only one to make but I don’t have the necessary measurements but I’ll hopefully get them this Saturday and then I can finish my shinigami outfit and pattern for my site.  I can then move onto my other projects (mostly Cosplay).
I almost had a complete fit yesterday when the dog (baka inu) stole my lunch.  I had taken one bite and it was tasty; my substitute lunch was okay.   Next week I should be able to pick up my text book and set about studying.  I’ve been doing random bits and pieces but not what I actually am wanting to do.  I’m also toying with the idea of holding a sewing class (SCA) but will have to see how things are looking next month (hmm, Thursday).

Fiction note:  Busy doing final editing on Day Three.  If nothing comes up it should be done by mid Feb (this will depend on Aki-chan’s work load as she is my outside proof-reader).  I reworked my cross over intro – much better but I still don’t have a plot.  The Fight for Spira started like that, it was meant to be a cross over but the sub plot become the main plot and I dumped Squall (gomenasai, Sukouru) and it became what it is.

New site

January 27, 2007 at 00:18 (Uncategorized)

I’ve created a sewing website.

I started it after work tonight and just finished the basic stuff.  It’s very plain with one pattern so far – shinigami hakama pattern (Cosplay pattern for Bleach).

Fussy fussy

January 26, 2007 at 14:59 (Uncategorized)

I think possibly I may be too fussy when I eat.  Tomatoes – are great with some things such as burger.  However, I don’t like chicken burgers to have tomato as I think it’s gross.  I don’t like tomato and chicken.  I bought a chicken sandwich for lunch and it had tomato on it so I pulled it off but then the smoked chicken and spicy mayonnaise didn’t go so well together.  It was a dud lunch.   And I’m still hungry (I didn’t finish the dud lunch) so I have to buy something else to eat. 

Happy news – RD found book four of a series I am collecting.  It was out of print but they found one – YATTA!  I’m on book eight (of twelve) so soon I shall have a complete set.      !#Happiness#!

Fiction note:  working typing editing…

Dusty

I find the screen at work to be quiet amazing – in its dust collecting capabilities.  Every Thursday I start the day by wiping a thick layer of dust off the screen.  The screen at home doesn’t do this nor does the screen at work in CT.  Is it because it’s in the dungeon?  It’s rather odd but moving on…

I’ve decided to stop reading fiction for a while (not stop reading).  Mainly because I realised that I’m not really reading the words on the page; I’m automatically putting the words into pictures without reading them.  So by not reading fiction I’ll have to concentrate on the words to understand what I’m reading.  All this is to improve my comprehension.  I’ve also discovered a fantastic use for old Xday cards – bookmarks; with the added bonus of being able to write done words I’m not 100% sure about and then look them up later.  Most of them, such as parochial, I can figure out from the text around them but I couldn’t tell some one what it means exactly. 

*FF Alert* – it seems like Square are going for ‘cool’ with FFXIII Versus.  Personally I think that is quiet cool.  FFXIII will be coming out long before Versus (from what the article implied) and will be sticking to regular RPG format with Versus being more along the lines of KH.  I’m really quiet excited about these games. 

Fiction note:  Access to my work – yay.  We’ll see what gets done today.

What a terrible lesson last night.  Sensei was speaking some language that sounded like Japanese but was not.  I blame medication – I could not concentrate at all.  Next week will hopefully be better (as my head should be better).  Apart for the occasional spasm in my right eye I’m feeling pretty okay.  The lesson has also been moved to Wednesday evenings so now Monday is truly an off day as there is nothing happening that day.

I managed (time constraints) to finish one corset so far – two to go but they require pattern making which I might do this evening.  OH – how could I forget; it looks like KH COM is being made for the PS2!  The article was vague but mentioned something about KH Final Mix being involved somehow.   I’ll have to wait and see what the official translations say.

Fiction note:  Er, nothing is happening till Thursday as I left all my work at the dungeon last week and will only go back later this week.  I would have got it on Sunday but I did not go in to work – further delays!

Down with the sickness

January 21, 2007 at 19:57 (Uncategorized)

I am finally able to sit up (without throwing up or my head exploding).  Yesterday and today were really bad days – I think it may have something to do with the fact I ate Mac Cheese on Friday night.  Even though I peeled off the cheese, the white sauce must have got me (I know it has milk in it).   I like Mac Cheese and I figured since I hadn’t eaten anything dairy related for months it would be okay – wrong!  So I didn’t end up going into work today; Aki-chan had to fill in for me and the big boss phoned as well and wanted to know who she was and where I was or where my manager was (she couldn’t fill in for me).  EEP!  But it’s okay because Aki-chan sold stuff and made lots of money. 

I mainly got up to check mail and eat something before heading back to bed.

Fiction note:  Too ill to work – gomen.

I see

15 January was a date of note for Naruto but not what people lead others to believe.  It was a manga return not an anime return, the latter scheduled for 15 February.   I did see some spoiler pics and they looked awesome.  Bleach is late as well but most likely be out tomorrow (subbed – I only read Hagaren raw). 

Funny thing happened today in the dungeon – I couldn’t call out on the landline ? ?  Nor could any of the other stores.  In addition, no one could call in either.  It was really odd – being in the dungeon means there is no radio reception so without access to internet or ability to call out and underground, I could almost imagine it was the end of the world and I would leave at seven to enter a place I had never seen before.  It would be so cool … well, not really now that I think about it.  I would have to hunt for food – I don’t mind the idea but I’m lazy and unfit and wouldn’t actually know how to skin something but I could probably cook on a fire once I figured out how to light one without firelighters. 

Fiction note:  It’s rare but I actually had work to do yesterday – it came up in the later half of the morning and didn’t stop till late afternoon so not much fiction happened but today has been okay, however, stuff is still delayed.

Angry!

January 19, 2007 at 14:11 (Uncategorized)

I found this through a friend’s blog

http://www.naturalbeautiescontest.homestead.com/retouch1b.html

All I can say is that no wonder shit happens to these kids – they dress them like prostitutes.   Parents in such cases should be charged with aiding child abuse – it pisses me off and angers me more than anything else.   You are supposed to look after your children and care for them, teach them and protect them.  I read this morning about MySpace being sued – can’t parents teach their children (who they claim to love) not to met or go ANYWHERE with strangers.   Yeah, children are hard work – DEAL!  Take responsability. 

The world is not as it was – grow up and look after those you gave life to.

Oops…

I got into work today and saw on the desk a pot plant (white daisy).  I was like coool, so pretty, er, then I remembered that I had actually bought them on Sunday.  So I gave them some water, apologised and I’ll try remember to take them home today. 

Apparantly there is Bleach this week (yay) though there is no news with Naruto (nay).  I’m having to wait until February for my vasity books (they aren’t out yet – wtf) so today is fiction day at work though I did bring my Japanese with me.  I have to fix some sentences.  But I am hoping to get Day Three ready for proof-reading today; now that I’ve sorted out some scenes.  But we shall see.

He came for you.

It looks like there is to be a playable demo of FF XIII out this year.  I’m guessing it will be the main game and not Versus or Agito.  I have a seriously busy week ahead – there is something happening every night till next Tuesday.  I’m being quite sociable this week.  Not to mention that I’ll be completely KO next week due to lack of sleep.   On a plus note – Japanese went really well yesterday.  I wasn’t so keen to start having done nothing the whole holiday but it went well.  (Phew!)

Fiction note:  Lots of work done today on both Day Three and Day Four.  Mostly sorting scenes with some writing and editing.   Being toying with an idea for a Firefly fiction (set after the movie) but I haven’t really been able to get a plot to stick together.  I think it might be more gaps in my knowledge of Firefly more than anything else.   I’m also thinking I may have to rework my cross over timeline other wise I have too many people to try and organise.   And I don’t have tasks (let alone plot) for all the additional characters.
