Last week was not a productive week.  I picked up some extra shifts at work, and was too bloody tired to do much of anything else.  (There were naps.  I regret nothing.)

But this week will be different!  I am... a large number of words behind my Camp NaNoWriMo par, and I might not be able to get entirely caught up, but I want to make some significant headway in addressing the deficit.  So I am ensconced at Panera, as demonstrated below.  I am wearing my blood-red lipstain, which is how you know I mean srs bsns.

The rest of the agenda for today:
- Michaels to stock up on some craft stuff since I have a cash back deal to use
- Library
- Toys R Us
- Get Etsy shipments out because I have had a stellar week of sales
- Get new items listed
- Gardening
- Painting in the office

For tomorrow:
- Hamilton-and-cleaning
- All thelaund... more »

I've been seeing some truly ancient memes making the rounds lately, but no love for the llamas.

This is now rectified. You're welcome.

For our wedding, we did cookie cakes in tiers instead of regular cake. So every year for our anniversary, we get a cookie cake.

I couldn't pass up this design.

Daily Nerd Art - Phoenix

Surprisingly, I don't find a lot of Phoenix fan art that I actually like.  Dig this one, though.

When resharing articles about any sort of study, perhaps take a closer look at their methodology.  In this case, the researchers were using a viral load exponentially higher than would be found on anyone using a bathroom in the real world (they literally dipped their hands in a virus soup and then shook them off a bit).  

So while air dryers do indeed spread germs more than paper towels, which is why you don't see them in hospitals or other sterile environments, the amount of germs they're spreading is still gonna be too low to get someone sick.  As long as you're actually washing your hands, it doesn't matter much how you dry them.

Daily Nerd Art - Princess Leia/Hamilton

Well, a trip to the ER this morning wasn't exactly in my game plan.  The husbandperson's back went out.  He's fine, just gonna be laid up and on pain meds and muscle relaxers for the next few days.

That means I don't have any alone time in the house this week, but that's fine.  He'll just have to listen to me belting along with Hamilton and talking to myself while I whiteboard.

The docket:

- Drop off his prescriptions
- Hamilton-and-cleaning
- Dishes
- Laundry
- Make the bed
- Try to reclaim the kitchen and coffee tables
- Bathrooms
- Etsy/eBay shipments
- Painting stuff
- Make an outline for Lion City (no, seriously)

I can't find a good image for this post.  Link me your favorite GIF!

But seriously, these are some pretty amazing stories.

- Resistance
- Dixit
- Five Tribes
- Sentinels of the Multiverse (a perennial favorite in our group)

And all for cheap!  Go ye forth and diversify your game nights.

I have seen (and shared!) quite a few Hamilton parodies, because it's pretty impressive when someone manages to take the dense and intricate lyrics of one of the show's songs and retool them for another topic while retaining their integrity.

Well, a bunch of college kids took the ENTIRE SHOW and rewrote it so that it's about the rise and fall of Jeb Bush (exclamation point) instead of Alexander Hamilton.

Sometimes our remix culture fills me with equal parts awe and disbelief.

This digs into one of the things I liked best about the Jungle Book remake.  There are a lot of significant stories from our cultural history whose philosophy and worldview is unpalatable, or even anathema, to a modern perspective.  Favreau did a great job retaining the heart of the story while sloughing off the parts that haven't exactly aged well.

This is critical for fans of any stripe to keep in mind; I see a similar thing happening with video games.  Your fave attracting criticism (meaning in the academic sense, not just in bad reviews) is a good thing.  It means that someone thought there was something of broader importance there worth teasing out.  It means you're being taken seriously.

I need to be careful about going through my Tumblr video backlog in public.  First I was getting choked up over a masterful Disney compilation, then immediately after that learned that there's a thing called the "Cat Duet" and started laughing helplessly at boy sopranos meowing at each other.

Some of this goes to a slightly weird place, but I'm always interested in alternative readings, especially when they can redeem a maligned character and especially when the writer can center their arguments in the text.

I've made similar points before, but this does address a lot of things that make me firmly Team Cap.  A big part of what's generally considered to be masculinity is accomplished by rejecting and devaluing the feminine.  Steve Rogers is a great hero largely because he has no patience for that.

I'm in training this week, which means I'm off today to make the hours work out.  It feels all kinds of weird and wrong, although honestly I've been so horribly stressed lately that getting a Monday entirely off the phones feels like divine intervention.

Twitter Pitch Party!

These are the best.  You pitch your (completed, polished, unpublished) manuscript with a tweet, and agents and editors can request material if they're interested.  It's a great way to spot upcoming trends, to meet new writers, and to discover agents who might not have been on your radar.

Tomorrow is #DVpit , which is specifically for marginalized voices and characters.  I'm excited about this one because it's a great way to encourage diversity in the industry, which leads to more varied and interesting stories being told.  Even if you're not ready to pitch tomorrow, the blog post provides a long list of agents and editors who are actively looking for those marginalized voices.  So if you're a member of a minority group and looking to get traditionally published, this is a fantastic resource.

I am still horrendously behind on Camp NaNoWriMo (and starting to give up hope on actually hitting my goal) because stuff keeps getting in the way, and I don't have the energy to sort out the story problems and make it all work.  And I've been staring at my screen for like an hour trying to figure out why.

Then I checked my Fitbit and saw I only got eight hours sleep combined for the last two nights.

So fuck it, just worrying about staying awake through the rest of my shift.  We'll try again tomorrow.

Daily Nerd Art - Harry Potter

The use of light and shadow is awesome, as are the details (like in Harry's Quidditch robes).

I want to drink gallons of this. And make ice cream floats.

I see people kind of freaking out about this, but I don't think they're really understanding.  After all, Disney did "second-screen" showings at the El Capitan where they encouraged you to use your phone or tablet to access additional content during the show.  And AMC already has sensory-friendly screenings where they keep the lights up and allow kids to run around.  Sure, that sounds like my idea of hell, but it's not a blanket policy -- those are specialized events, as this would be.  And it's not just snake people Millennials who might appreciate being able to freely access their phones during a show; I could also see this appealing to, say, someone in an on-call position who might need to respond to an email, or someone who wants to try to get a bit of work done during the trailers.  Plus, many of the newer theaters I've been in are designed in such a way that youcan&... more »

Aaron said, "the hell?" when I read him the headline. He told Theron, who pretended to put a gun to his head. They are 19 and 17. They go to the movie theater about once a month.___I see people kind of freaking out about this, but I don't think they're really understanding.  After all, Disney did "second-screen" showings at the El Capitan where they encouraged you to use your phone or tablet to access additional content during the show.  And AMC already has sensory-friendly screenings where they keep the lights up and allow kids to run around.  Sure, that sounds like my idea of hell, but it's not a blanket policy -- those are specialized events, as this would be.  And it's not just snake people Millennials who might appreciate being able to freely access their phones during a show; I could also see this appealing to, say, someone in an on-call position who might need to respond to an email, or someone who wants to try to get a bit of work done during the trailers.  Plus, many of the newer theaters I've been in are designed in such a way that you can't actually see the rows below you; someone right next to you would still bug you, but beyond that you'd have no idea if there was a screen out anyway (unless it was making noise, which I doubt they're proposing to allow).

In short, I honestly think that we're going to start seeing more of this specialization and niche-ifying as theaters have to compete with other forms of entertainment.  It's not that much different than the current quote-alongs and 21-and-over theaters I frequent already.  They'll have to figure out the kind of experiences that people will pay extra for and try to provide them, and different environments will appeal to different people.  It might be a bit of a rough transition as the average moviegoer realizes that each individual auditorium and screening can have separate rules, but ultimately I think it would be for the best.

Anyone up for a Silent Writing Hangout?  I'm thinking I'll fire one up in half an hour or so (so 8pm Central).  I'm looking to get at least another 500 words tonight, preferably closer to 1000, plus i'm on my exercise bike making up for the fact that breakfast at Panera consumed basically all the calories I get for one day WTF.  

Comment if you want in!

Last week was not a productive week.  I picked up some extra shifts at work, and was too bloody tired to do much of anything else.  (There were naps.  I regret nothing.)

But this week will be different!  I am... a large number of words behind my Camp NaNoWriMo par, and I might not be able to get entirely caught up, but I want to make some significant headway in addressing the deficit.  So I am ensconced at Panera, as demonstrated below.  I am wearing my blood-red lipstain, which is how you know I mean srs bsns.

The rest of the agenda for today:
- Michaels to stock up on some craft stuff since I have a cash back deal to use
- Library
- Toys R Us
- Get Etsy shipments out because I have had a stellar week of sales
- Get new items listed
- Gardening
- Painting in the office

HAMILTOME!

I don't tend to buy a lot of books these days, instead mainly going through the library for what I need. But I'm so glad I invested in this one. It's gorgeous, with a classy spine and deckled edges. It's a combination of annotated libretto, essays, and tons of photos from the show.

Now I just have to be a good little horsey and get caught up on my word count, and maybe I can let myself indulge.
