For some reason, I've cued my brain to react to U2's "Where The Streets Have No Name" as CSI:NY's opening theme instead of The Who's "Baba O'Riley." Yeah, I don't know why either.
I think the SW stories might actually be a trilogy. Crap.
Which is to say -- "What is Lost", "A Long Time Gone", and what I'm gradually getting resigned to as the as yet unnamed third story in the series, taking place during the timeline of the original trilogy. Well, it's Star Wars. Trilogies are traditional.
I have an overarching plot for the Spaceforce novel. Oh, thank God
. And I think it makes more sense than what I was working off of, anyway -- it'll just have one POV instead of two completely unrelated ones, I think. Which makes me sad, because no more Lannister barfights, but it'll make the story a lot more focused. The main problem is that it won't have the story that's covered in And Your Friends Which Are No More
, so I have to figure out a good way to introduce Berin Sunstark and the Vira.
Oh my God, Farscape went there
.Most awesome scarf pattern EVER.
Next up on my list of things to knit now that I've finished David's skull-and-crossbones illusion scarf. I might try doing a PoA style scarf afterwards -- I went to Wal-Mart in Yakima today and picked up the yarn I usually use (Carron Simply Soft -- 100% acrylic, but it's soft and cheap and easy to work with) in sage and gray. Sage for the Dark Mark scarf, gray if I decide to do a movie!Ravenclaw or Slytherin scarf later. I think I also might spring for pair of circs sometime -- I have one, but they're the wrong size.
Speaking of which, David better remember he commissioned a scarf from me, because I want the money. I still need to block the scarf and add fringe, though, and I probably won't see him until the school year actually starts.
I think I'm taking Duke, Carolina, and Boston College off my prospective college list and putting Washington and Lee back on. Duke doesn't have my major and Carolina's really hard to get into as an out-of-state student, plus I think I'm more interested in its grad program than its undergrad. And then I looked at America's Best Colleges and realized that all the schools I'm applying to, lib arts and universities, are in the top fifty. One of them is the top liberal arts college in the country. I am so screwed
Still can't write an application essay. *head.desk* Maybe I'll try the Rodeo Parade as the next subject! I've tried Solo Ensemble, television, and archaeology so far, and I'm afraid to write about writing because...it's hard for me to write about writing, and I just end up sounding starry-eyed.
Went to Borders in Yakima today and almost bought a CD, but backed out at the last minute. It was $10! I had a 20% off coupon! I'm the most indecisive person in the world, I swear to God.
I waved it off as trying to save up for the SGA and SPN DVDs.
Writers, check howwedoit
out! It could be pretty interesting.
Found a story I started at the beginning of 2007/end of 2006 -- it's a Clone Wars era Star Wars story and I have maybe a third to half of it done (although since we're talking me here, that means nothing), but I'm not really sure where to go from where I ended. I really like it, though! It could be the story in which Mace Windu stopped trusting Anakin Skywalker between AotC and RotS.
I really want stories where Dooku and Anakin have to work together to save Obi-Wan. I have now realized I have two
stories where this happens, sort of.
CSI:NY doesn't do as much for me as it used to. *sigh*
Still on my rereadthrough of HP. Should be done within a couple days -- I'm on DH now, so there should be commentary soon, although I'm kind of wishing I'd taken notes as I read. *sigh*
Haven't done any summer reading for school. *huge eyes* Whoops. Fortunately, I didn't have
to do it, I just now have to do it during the actual school year.
I have one summer_bits
story done, and I haven't started my timerevised
story yet. Or my dvd_commentary
yet, but that's not due till October.
I kind of want to do a commentary on "What is Lost" -- I'll probably end up doing it for myself once I finish typing up the "A Long Time Gone" concept writing, but would anyone be interested in reading it if I posted it? Um, if you made it all the way through these rambles to this particular one?
