I was obsessed with this show in high school. I loved the dark/spooky vibe, the freaky monsters (I'm still afraid of coming across The Flukeman someday), the quirky sense of humor, and yes, the epic romance.

This fanvid is pretty great:

Made good progress on the novel yesterday.

However I didn't work on it anymore today. Instead I sat down and wrote a short scifi story my husband gave me the idea for before leaving for work this morning. :)

Finally broke 20K and then promptly didn't feel like writing anymore. Man this part is hard, protagonist needs to get her butt moving.

Also, portobello mushrooms make a wonderful addition to chili.

I have a craving for French surreal cinema. I've got Delicatessen from Netflix, but I need to find some films I've never heard of.

Meh. So Maynowrimo is shot, but I find myself not caring. Today was a good writing day. And, if I stick to my own goals, I should still have the first draft finished sometime in July.

So while being behind on my daily word count is not great, I'm happy that I'm at least writing (fiction) again. The last few weeks of university was full of term papers so I hadn't worked on the novel since April 19th. It feels good to be back!


Finished Witch World by Andre Norton, very fun! I will be picking up more of the books at the library. Started The Adventures of Alyx by Joanna Russ.

I don't think I'll make it.

I'm only  at 17,731 words and I don't have any time this weekend to catch up.  I'm trying to get all my term papers done with time enough to make a mad dash for the finish. 

We'll see.

 "One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words 'Socialism' and 'Communism' draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, 'Nature Cure' quack, pacifist, and feminist in England." - George Orwell

Nudist?!  For shame.

I'm currently in Phil 313: Eastern Religion and its really got me thinking about what I eat and why I eat it.  So in short, I've been cutting out the meat and upping the veggies and legumes.  I'm thinking of it as a personal challenge and a kind of health/philosophy experiment.  

Playing Dungeons & Dragons again, I'm an elven cleric named Tinuviel Falmari.  According to the Professor, Tinuviel means "daughter of twilight" or "nightingale" and Falmari means "sea-elf".  4th edition is so much simpler, I loves it. 

Also getting back to A Song of Ice and Fire, currently on A Clash of Kings.
