Okay, Friday’s done. I might tweak the end a little, but it’s done.
The hard part is going to be Saturday. I wrote out all the dialogue… and then Thursday went a whole other direction. Mallory wouldn’t have to spend Saturday wondering how he can get along better with Meiko; they bonded nicely on Thursday. I’ll have to change what the scene’s about. Hmm.
Weekend wasn’t as hot as I was hoping for. Lots of unsuccessful attempts to get some RP going. (And a FEW successful ones, although I’m still hammering out the kinks that make it hard to play my character vis a vis various other RP going on around me. Nothing I can’t handle.) Played some JSRF. I wish I had written down Cube’s rant after I FINALLY got to her in the game; I might wanna RP her sometime and I’d need to know that dialogue. I’ve already saved after that point. *sigh*
We worked on the MAME cabinet; got the wood sides cut out. Expect photos online soon. And finally, got some writing done.
Bit of a disappointing note — I can’t see Wrestlemania on Sunday since there’s a scheduling conflict with an opera I’m attending. I MIGHT be home in time to catch it, sans Heat, but I’d be better off buying the encore PPV on Tuesday. I don’t like to miss part of a show when I can see the whole thing. Bummer. But again, nothing I can’t handle.
Well, things had been UberWaiFantastic last week, so I was bound to hit one or two doldrums. It’s still better than depression, all things considered, yes? Now if I could get that goddamn Cibo Mato “Birthday Cake” song out of my head and telekinetically explode the guy’s head for blighting mankind with it in the first place, I’d perk up quite a bit…
Update 9am, Monday: I’ve posted to a thread about publishing contracts and online writing on Slashdot. May god have mercy on my bandwidth if a lot of people click on the link to UE I tossed in — thirty minutes after posting I’ve gotten 45 hits…
Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my great friend, Lee! (lostboydv)
