elfie_chan: MY cup of tea! (Default)
My subject lines seem to be mainly sound effects starting with B lately.

We're trying to get all of our stuff out of the old house (and we've only been in the new house--what, two years?). Both of us detest moving, so it's not exactly the most motivational of processes. Not only that, but because of extenuating circumstances, we only went out there once this week so far. We'll probably go out there at some point today. I really don't want to. There are about a zillion things that I'd rather do. But moving must get done. I'm tired of having that house hanging over our heads.

On the upside, I have coffee. Coffee makes everything better. Now, if I only had a flock of flying monkeys to do all of my work for me. Then again, that might not be a good idea...I have a feeling that flying monkeys would have to be constantly supervised to make sure that they didn't break anything important.

I would really like it if my computer would stop trying to restart. Updates can wait! I'm working!

Cassandra's Codex continues slowly. I haven't had that much time to work on it, and that's frustrating. I really want to write, and all of these chores and things keep getting in the way. *shakes fist at real life*

In other frustrating news, there are too many things going on this weekend, and Alex and I have to make some decisions today and call people. I don't think I'm going to be able to make everybody happy, and that's always depressing.

Gloom and Doom! I suppose life isn't horrible or anything, but this weekend is going to be tough no matter what I do. Plus, I have a ton of housework to do that really should be done today, and I don't want to do any of it. Wah.

Better go and get stuff done. Like breakfast or something.

So, I'm pretty much updating here to say that I've changed my journal layout again in honor of my new mighty Electric Camels Icon. Admire [ profile] gravityslave, who made this for me. I do hope that I spelled that right.

Life is as usual--busy. I am excitedly working my way towards Egil's, where I shall mostly be minding gate. Up until the actual point of the event, however, I shall be working. Luckily, my work (scribal) is fun to do, and I have lots of help. Still, things are a bit stressful. Egil's is less than three weeks away. So not ready.

I also have to do more on my paper that's due next week, like start it. Bah.

It's raining today. So much for planting all of those flowers we bought yesterday.

Time to send more e-mails. *scurries*

Here is my list of things done today:

1) Get up, get dressed, make coffee, eat apple cinnamon scone
2) Read first two chapters of Ancrene Riwle for paper due finals week
3) Work on calligraphy
4) Bake ready-made pizza for lunch
5) Read more Ancrene Riwle
6) Work on more calligraphy and other important scribal stuff
7) Talk to mother, wish mother Happy Birthday, learn from mother of new way to swallow pills more comfortably
8) Get mysterious e-mail from Baroness with a phone number to call regarding scribal stuff
9) Call number, learn that services are needed for a demo event happening after Egil's. Resolve to call fiends friends to let them know. Jump for joy and squee.
10) Go to casting class; do first casting! Regard torch with fear and awe. Gain one pendant in potentia. Be very pleased with how the pendant looks, even though I haven't done any refining work on it.
11) Return home (now); read more Ancrene Riwle.
12) (Future) Sleep the sleep of the just. The just will just have to do without, or else find my sleep and have it instead.

Must go now; my McDonald's hamburger is probably getting cold.

EDIT (post-very-salty-hamburger): I almost forgot to post the coolest misheard lyrics ever!
RADIO: I look! Around! A lousy candle was all I found!
ELF BRAIN: I look! Around! Electric camels is all I found!

Incidentally, "Electric Camels" would be an excellent name for a rock band.
