The Late Summary

Been in a deep dark hole, as you might imagine from all the absence. But I’m trying to get back into it, so hopefully this is the last super late summary:

  • Friend got two tickets to Addams Family musical, and took me there. It was a perfectly timed day. She received the package with my new tablet. I received the package with new SSD (old HDD got so slow that both work and pleasure became torture). She helped me put it into my laptop and we went out. On our way out, I checked mail box, as I always do, and found another slip for mail. It was the dearly awaited, magically fast here Irn-Bru package and a postcard from Japan. Irn-Bru tastes like one Lithuanian drink we had in the past. Ours got extinct, hope it doesn’t happen to Irn-Bru for it is one damn glorious soda.

  • There was still time until the play, so we went to a zoological museum. Bisons and mooses are scary, I tell you, they’re enormous and I do not wish to witness what power bodies like that can hold. I’ve already seen that video of a moose running through snow that was up to its chest, like it was barely anything. No thank you.
  • The play itself was mediocre. And that’s only due to writing. Story itself was poor, characters weren’t true to the characters. Wednesday was no more than an angry teenager who screams at her parents when she doesn’t get what she wants, her brother was a bit too attached to his sister, and uncle Fester could not have been any more creepy if he wanted too, I never cringed so hard watching anything. But. Actors really did their best, and you could tell they’re putting their hearts into this. And there were some good and memorable jokes, even if I couldn’t tell you a single song.

  • Theater itself amused me to no ends. It was so over-the-top refined. I kept hearing that Lithuanian song in my brain “auntie, let me into the theater, I wish to experience the magic of scene, come on auntie, just let me into the theater, I wish to revive the dwindling flames!” of the old-school post-soviet theaters that we had, with these bulky ladies at the door checking your tickets and ushering you in, with no pretense to it. Not complaining, of course. And theater itself was beautiful too.
  • Had a very mighty food poisoning, resulting in three very bad days, and a lot of coconut water. Luckily, I love coconut water.
  • Reading a review request book. Now I remember why I stopped asking for those.
  • As hard as it is to believe, I have indeed finished Kim Newman‘s “Johnny Alucard“. His stories are good, but they’re so blown out with his satire and comical biographies, that it tends to get real hard to read.

Log | Inktober, Organizing, and NaNoWriMo

I have finished Inktober! I set to do it, and I did it, by the official prompt too, all pandas. I’m very proud of myself, because this was the first challenge I set for myself this year, and I have not failed. So, for me, Day One was October 1st, and just how great is that?

That said, I have just entered NaNoWriMo data into the official page, and will begin writing every day tomorrow, to reach the goal of 50.000 words in a month, a novel in one month. Now, this one has a far greater chance to be a fail, but then, how can it be a fail, if I start and write at least a quarter of that, right? It’s nothing but gain to try. I found this great inspirational blog entry on Goodreads, if anyone needs encouragement: [These 24 books won NaNoWriMo]. Don’t know about you, but I have half of these books on my to-read list, and some I’ve already read, so, woah.

I’m working on an awesome project I won’t share details on, just gonna say it involves a lot of paper and paper-y testing, so I need quite a bit of space around me. And I don’t have a lot of that to begin with, so I’ve been re-organizing my shelves today for at least a couple hours, with Hocus Pocus playing in the background. I can’t say I’m a 100% pleased with the results, but some things did work out in my favor. See, I want practicality more than I want beauty, but then if it’s practical but ugly – I feel bad for it. I’m so ready to pack some books away. I just need to dedicate a day, take pictures, upload the good stuff on ebay or whatnot, and the rest – give away, donate. I mean, I don’t even have all the books I truly and honestly want to have in paper, for keeps, forever and ever, so why would I hang on to stuff I don’t care about all that much? So if I could just get rid of one side of my bookshelf, keeping the other one as a wall between my work space and the rest of the room – that’d be great. We’ll see tho. For the time being I’m ded and dusty. Yes. Ded.

Yesterday was a great day btw. I received two great things from USA, and I’m so sorry for everyone who ever sent me anything from USA, the shipping for you is the worst!

I’ve got a wonderful postcard with a letter in it, that inspired me, and made me very happy. And I’ve got a very heavy package full of crafting supplies. No joke, it’s a giant-ass bag full of beads, chains, bits and pieces, and oh it is glorious, fam, it is so very glorious. I’ve been sifting through it, allowing my mind to wander around in the possibilities. Except great things. But likely only in December, I’m giving myself some fair share of slack here for NaNoWriMo. But we’ll see, really, I type really fast, so maybe it won’t be a challenge at all!

In the meantime, I continue to organize things in that small way, you know? where you shuffle things around, put them tidier together, maybe make a box for this thing, and get a rubber band to hold it together for that thing. If I remember anything I was supposed to tell you – I’ll write about it soon. Like, I’d like to tell you how Julie and Julia movie has inspired me to blog in the first place, for once.

Summary: 25-01

Okay, so, since it was far easier to write everything down in bulletin form, I think we’ll try that again, okay? Can’t say that a lot happened, but hey, that’s due to all the work I had, which, in itself, is a good thing:

  • Elder Scrolls Online began new season of the treasure boxes, didn’t get anything good in them, but I don’t mind, they’re nice anyway.
  • Cleaned my closet nice and proper. Found a little hook to keep my shirts a bit straighter. I mean the ones I wear constantly, and so they don’t get their closet-time.
  • Finished four paintings. Two with panda’s, one with prince Laurent of Vere. Yep. That’s happening again.
  • Re-listened to first two books of Captive Prince, and gone through such long-term to-reads as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and Hemlock Grove (yes, the book is better than the series).
  • Friend got me a physical copy of this old Dracula game. I have it on steam, but I collect all things Dracula, so this is great!
  • Finished up Mabon sale, it was pretty great, I hope everyone will like their presents. Also made one jewelry piece to a friend in general, because, apparently, sometimes some things just are right for one person, and no one else, so I had to.
  • Started Inktober! Because it’s just one little step between “One Day” and “Day One“.
  • Watched Rhett and Link’s “Buddy System” at last, and it was everything I could’ve wanted!
  • Finished season 6 of Game of Thrones, and season 2 of Strain. It’s “okay” and “meh“.

Work? Do you want to know even? Translated 4 contracts, 3 manuals, and started the project “when you can’t figure out what PC means from context: it could mean this“, because editing people’s works is the worst part of my job.

Genre: Platformer, RP
Modes: Singleplayer
Date: 2014

It’s a wonderful game I received as a gift from a dear friend. I don’t know if she knew that I wanted it, but I did want it for ages, and I can’t tell you what a hard time I have when it comes to buying things for myself.

Anyway, the game! It all starts with a little intro story. Duke of Austria kad a daughter, his wife died, but he remarried. The woman, as fairy tales go, turned out to be an evil Queen of Night. She stole the Moon, Stars, and Sun, and somehow put Aurora, Duke’s daughter, into sleep-like coma, in which she eventually, allegedly died. Heartache was too much for the Duke to bear, and he became bedridden, weakening every day.

Aurora, in the meantime, wakes up in a magical land called Lemuria, where she takes up arms to save their land from monsters, and the evil Queen of Night. Doing so she’s to get back the Moon, Stars, and Sun, and return home. But there’s still many quests to do, puzzles to solve, and friends to make.

It’s a child-friendly game. I spent hours there making best gems for my wonderful party-friends there alone, so believe me when I say, the game is great to have. The artwork, the music, the beautiful story, everything will stay with you.
