You ever have a weekend that’s so packed with fun that you’re worried it’s not going to be any fun? Let’s overview.
Thursday (last night) I had the guys over for a very mediocre Smackdown which nobody was really watching and I had to read the closecaps to know what was going on since chat was on the rise. Tough Enough was pretty good, though, and they enjoyed that. Of course, having folks over for 3 hours of TV means I basically have 3 hours to myself busted into a useless 2 hour decompression after work and 1 hour of frantic trying to get stuff done before I have to go to bed.
Today work is shaping up to be fairly evil since we have an export certificate project coming up, and of course it’s so vaguely defined and fuzzy that what needs to be done and what the forms will look like hasn’t been defined yet — but they’re expecting some progress by monday. Blaargh. Tonight I’m probably gonna do an RP binge because it’ll be my last night of quiet, free time to myself, since…
Saturday is a movie party at Josh’s. I love these, but they do basically eat the entire day. Sunday is also gone because that’s King of the Ring, and that means another party to prep for and carry out. I’ll likely be too wound up Sun night and too wasted Mon morning to go into work on time, and then I get five more days of work until I have an actual weekend where I have free time but likely that Saturday we’ll be moviepartying, so I guess next Sunday beyond this Sunday is it.
I am very lousy at handling time management in a happiness-inducing way. I decided to stick that angle into Meiko in order to help deal with it.
I have a lot of ideas for UE kicking around in my head, but I haven’t written them down. I have a quasi-outline for episode one, some new character ideas for the antagonists, etc. I’m gonna try and make it like Bebop / Outlaw Star, in that I have lots of SHORT DAMMIT SHORT episodes where we can have a random silly romp or an action show without having to work the Uberplot to death every waking moment. I don’t know how well that’ll turn out since I said the same damn thing before Starboard and that turned into a mystery series with the uberplot thrashing each episode, and Sailor Nothing is basically 100% uberplot after we get character intros done. But I’m gonna try this time.
SN9 is about halfway done, but I haven’t heard more than a handful of comments on it. Admittedly I’ve been sounding off in the journal about my music and Chad, so it’s not a great forumn at the moment for feedback. My apologies.
While I’m talking writing, I might as well plug the tip jar again, but I suspect those who want to donate already have; there was a small burst of donates when I introduced it, then de nada for months. (Not that I was expecting an economic new age revolution.)
It’s weird. Despite fun and wild stuff on the horizon, right now I just feel overworked and am not looking forward to everything that needs doing, even if it’s supposed to be enjoyable. I think I need some quiet time to myself. Of course, if I had some, likely I’d waste it.
