Why is my internetz so slow tonight? It's irritating.
Why is Lys' LJ not letting me comment on her entry? That's irritating, too. Although she's probably just as happy not to hear from me on this topic. *winks* Just kidding. Lys tolerates my conservative indignation with very good humor. That's one of the many reasons I love her.
Why is it that I can spend the entire afternoon being attacked by a plot bunny, but as soon as I sit in front of my computer it skulks into its warren and won't come out? Bah. Stupid work. If I wasn't so busy there, I could have written the blasted drabble already. Unfortunately, I am really, really busy.
I'm planning to close out my lyric meme tomorrow. If you want to make some final guesses, you can do that here: http://mugglechump.livejournal.com/156658.html#cutid1
I updated my favorite character meme with the answers that weren't guessed. If you're curious, you can find that here: http://mugglechump.livejournal.com/155476.html
If you haven't been to www.stepheniemeyer.com and you are a Twilight fan, you should go. She has nifty outtakes and other squee-inducing stuff. The most phenomenal being the first chapter of Midnight Sun
, which will eventually be published. Midnight Sun
, but from Edward's POV. Guh. Could I love Edward any more? *thinks* Nope, I don't think I could. I lurve
Edward. The frustrating thing about reading this snippet, though, is that Midnight Sun
won't be published until after the fourth book in the Twilight
series. That book is slated to come out in the fall of 2008, so figure a year or two after that
. I'm too impatient to wait that long! *stomps feet and generally pitches a fit* You can read the first chapter here: http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/midnightsun_chapter1.pdf
If you feel like tormenting yourself, that is.
Last night Mer and I had Starbucks and Coldstone for dinner. Not great for my weight loss plan, but SO yummy. Still, I was half a pound lighter this morning than yesterday morning, so it's all good.
I've been trying to work on Anniversary
, but not getting very far. I've been making progress on the second chapter of my mail order bride fic, though. None of my multi-chaptered fics have been updated in over a year. That's bad, and I'm trying very hard to remedy it. Think good, writing-friendly thoughts for me, okay?
I have a date with Richard tonight. I know, I know. I'm weak and cowardly. But I'm also hungry, and I don't want the Hot Pocket in my freezer. >.>
