My life in bullet points! (the last week or so, that is)
+ Mary is home! Obviously, this is fabulous. With her she brings Esther, who actually makes an appearance now, many games of Catan, lots of music, carved wooden spoons, and a need for adventure approximately three continents wide.
+ I've done a fair bit of writing. One Narnia fic, finally almost finished What Images Return
, wrote Holland and Cedric just being, and a little bit of Celia and Sebastian together in Canada.
+ I start college classes this week. I mean, I was already taking AP American Government, but my two dual-enrollment classes start tomorrow. And one of them is a math class. Oh, joy
+ The past three Fridays, I have biked at least 5 miles.
+ Esther bought two mice! The school year has started, and since she is working in a Montessori school, her classroom has to have animals in it. So she got mice! I have named them Hermes (black with no tail) and Apollo (gray and bigger, definitely the dominate one) after Greek gods. Esther has said 'NO we are naming them sensible names!' but she hasn't come up with any yet and people are starting to call them Apollo and Hermes. Sooo. *snickers*
+ I'd forgotten how utterly AWESOME the Season 4 finale of Supernatural was, and now having seen the promos for Season 5 I'm really excited. Also, for Season 2 of Merlin! Did you know this will actually be the first time in my life I'm watching a TV show as it airs?
+ I didn't sleep last night. No, really. I never woke up that I can remember, and I remember really long periods of being wide awake and fully aware of it. Also? Really vivid periods of dreaming/daydreaming, in which my mind took BSG and completely rewrote it. I suppose it could have been dreaming, and I woke up and didn't realize it, but I got very, very little sleep at most last night. I have no idea why this happened, though I suspect the aspirin I took for the killer headache I had yesterday afternoon (must remember to ask mom to get Tylenol).
+ During this period of not being asleep, my mind decided it needed to fix BSG. That show was fabulous, but after Season 2 it was a lot of talk and very little interesting stuff happened. It was only fun when Kara and Lee were spotlighting, which wasn't often enough. Honestly. I wanted space battles and Kara/Lee, and tey couldn't even give me that for more than two seasons. Hmph. Anyways, the first thing my mind did was think about biological warfare, and then characters started interacting and I went 'HEY that's Lee! And Kara! Wha?' So basically, the reworking of BSG is that there are no human Cylons, so while the surprise was large the Cylons only destroyed approximately a half of the fleet and bombed a few cities. Working from the idea of computer viruses, the Cylons had managed to come up with a clumsily effective disease that they injected into a few test subjects, who then then let 'escape.' The disease spreads rapidly at first, wiping out several million people, until doctors are able to develop a cure. However, a few mutated strains remain persistently, and prove difficult to isolate and destroy. I wrote three scenes out in my head last night. This is not happening
. I have Cedric and Holland Celia and Sebastian to attend to! I have Harper and Connor to watch over! I cannot be writing fanfic that would most likely end up at least novel length!
+ Well, I am participating in autumnwrite
, so you never know. It might get a little bit written. *headdesk*
