 I really didn't feel well yesterday. Today is better, but no real post either.

 This is going to be my journal entry for today: I think I'm coming down with something.

Well, day 2 of 30.

Today was my dog Mae's birthday! The noodle-face is two years old today. I celebrated it by not putting her in doggie-jail (aka, her crate, which she has due to torn up carpet by the door when I've been gone). And also not doing any errands. *\o/* That said, the big one was returning a hideously expensive set of scissors (org. $50+ but $35 with coupon, and that don't even work that well), and buying more fabric. I think I can live. Mae got a (dog) cupcake too. It was adorbs.

I also did dishes. And baked! I made loose crostata with raspberry filling. It was very yummy, and only one piece is left.

A very significant portion of the day was spent listening to Vienna Teng's new CD. Songs are growing on me, as they do. I'm just waiting for a connection to be made in my writing back-brain. Vienna has always provided a good selection for my writing music.

I've got to say, I'm really enjoying this fall weather. I'm looking forward to drinking more hot tea now.

Also, if anyone (mostly looking at
fateofshadow here, but anyone else too) wants to toss me a writing prompt, go for it. I'm planning to do a post 10 fics in 10 days thing, and I need to start building up for that.

(it's been a while since i posted on not private. there are reasons, which friends who also know me in RL know. if you want to know more, hit me up on IM or something)

So, I like reading other people's blogs. Even (or perhaps especially) people I've never met or only met once or twice. As time goes by, and the words flow across the screen, I get to know them. Dreams, weaknesses, fears, elation, and loss all in 12pt font in my little bedroom. Maybe I'll never met these people, but I still have a personal interest in their lives. I'm sad when they slowly stop posting as often or switch to a platform I don't use.

But what I'm trying to say at this midnight hour, is that I admire them. I adore the reams of their lives they record and share, the shifts in writing styles from morning, noon, and late at night. To me, looking at these people is like looking at facets of humanity.

Or something. Have I mentioned that it's way past my bedtime? Hence the florid prose. It's hard to stop and judge what looks good when I get tired.

So what I'm leading up to, is that I've been inspired by cesperanza and astolat's 30 day journaling thing. So I'm going to try it. This might be the third or forth time I've decided to do something like this (and the the fact I'm doing it half asleep might not be good either), but I'll never be able to do anything if I didn't keep trying.

So yeah.

Today, I went to the farmer's market, and bought lots of yummy things. I'm also getting worried by how much I've been enjoying microgreens. They're expensive, but oh so tasty, and I indifferent enough to most leafy greens that any type of green I do like should be added to my diet. Maybe I should try growing them myself too? idk

Also, I got my pre-order of Vienna Teng's latest album today. There's a stream of it here you can listen to (legally!). It's a more message oriented than her previous albums and her sound has changed a little, as musicians tend to do. I wish there was a little more in the way of piano ballads, but I like it. Especially the first song, Level Up.  

Ah, fandom wise? I'm back into FFVII, for the first time in a few years. So far I'm planning to make a moogle dog coat (my Mae-dog needs something for Halloween!) and have been poking at fics.

Sometimes I think that I'm going to trip through time. I think that I'll be walking along a path and suddenly ten years will pass in a stumble or a hundred years erased in a turn. I know dan well it's silly and right on par with the fear my teeth will liquefy or that the air will turn into water, but sometimes I still think about it. Sometimes it's daydream, a story I'm writing in my head starring myself (and that always is pretty terrible idea) or it's a nightmare of losing everything I know (also pretty bad). 

Still, I thought about it again while driving today. 

I got lost on the way to my parents house today. I missed my turn in the dark, and ended up taking a completely new route. Along the way, I found a dark, nearly deserted town (at only 7pm), and there was a gas station with lit up in orange and yellows. The thing could have been straight out of the 60s or 70s. 

My phone's 3G and directions had cut out two towns before, so yangwarrior was on the phone (voice still worked) being my navigator, thus the idea only flitted though my mind before being dismissed. I did try to get a picture, but my phone continued to be bitchy, so I couldn't. 

I rather wish I could have. The extra twenty minutes it took to get to my parents was a cheap price to see it. 

...And I'm already sleep deprived. This is going to be a long night, but I'll be in Japan in 27 hours.

I bought a new laptop. 

It was my birthday present to myself. It is also the reason I'm going to be budgeting tightly for the next few months (well, and a trip later this year). 

I'm hoping it will help my writing habits and general internet interaction frequency. Now, I said the same thing about the tablet I bought last October, and we all saw how that worked.  (To be fair, it did help with my RL twitter, but 160 characters isn't the same.) The tablet was more of a media consumption device, and less a creative one. It was impossible to write anything from start to posting on it. 

The laptop I bought myself is almost a more recent and souped up version of my old one. By more recent I mean 6+ years ahead and  3 or 4 OS too. There's a deal of new things to get used to and figure out. 

But first thing is first. I need my writing files and music. 

And sleep. 

Hmmmmm.

Reply to this post, and I will list three things I love, like, and/or appreciate about you. Maybe more than three. Then repost to your own journal and spread the love.

So...

I ran out and bought a tablet yesterday. I'm now the happy owner of a Toshiba Thrive. We'll see how I feel about in a couple months, but I think it was a very good choice. I also bought a keyboard to go with it, so that I can also use it to write easily. I'm planing to put on Ubuntu later today. Android is fun, but I want a proper OS with easy to access documents.
