you know what, never mind. Contour, what's this song

ugh. SUCH a horribly delivered commercial. The content itself is meh, but the people reading the lines should be ...well, they shouldn't have been compensated for it, let's put it that way.

Anywhat, today was somehow even longer than the longest day of the year, but if there's anything the past two years have taught us, it's that this timeline will constatnly find new ways to surprise you with what you thought wasn't possible.

Speaking of! I totally want a Melania jacket. It would come in handy SO often.
Eh. I guess I don't really care that much. (I do expect that it will make appearances come Halloween time, though. Although the distance between now and end of October is pretty wide, and people's memories are short.... guess it depends on what ELSE happens between now and then. Maybe she'll have other messages on other jackets.)

There was something else on my mind to blog about while I was driving home, and, now, as is typical, I can't remember what it was. Ah well.

"Well what do ya know."

it's been a long day

Man, sometimes - not often enough, lately, but sometimes - I am really funny.

Anyway, yes. Long, hot day. One could say it's been the longest. And the hottest. And you'd be correct on both counts.

It's all downhill from here. (Well, until it starts being uphill again. Oh, earth, with your rotational movements. Never change.)

almost forgot to blog

But then I remembered at (more or less) the last minute. Crisis averted.

....Until Next Time...

water day it was

Went out to Cowabunga Bay for about 4 hours today, rode around on the lazy river and nearly drowned in the wave pool, and slid down the "Surfin USA" water slide, and had really expensive pizza. I'm exhausted, but it was a good time. We have a season pass for the four of us (me, Steph, and the younger kids), so hopefully we can go at least a few more times during the year.

pretty good bday.
Worked, which was eh, but not all that bad. Saren bought me sodas, Wendy brought in a strawberry cake, and Joni got me a gift card to Amazon.
Then we went to dinner at Peter Piper Pizza (because i'm a grown up) and bought some new board games ("Unearth" and "Hey, That's My Fish")
uploaded the one year anniversary vlog post for OK What Now
and played some Mario Party Ten.
blogged, and now I'm going to go to bed - because I'm old, and going to bed at 930 at night is a freaking awesome present, shut up, you'll understand when you're older.

FireLickyCat Scratch Fever

Scratch, a coding site created by MIT, has caught Silas's interest lately. He's created quite a few games on there, and they're pretty cool. His username there is FireLickyCat, and you can find all his creations here.

oh, there it is

Guess my spark for story ideas just took a month off. It's back now. (Which is good, I was starting to miss it)
Now I just need to ensure that I *do* something with it.

(Easier said than done, especially when the 103 degree heat, driving, and stress from the work day make it so all I really want to do is sleep for the next four hours...)

done done on to the next one

It's been a month(ish) since I wrote the second draft of Stupid Monsters - and other than the teacher, nobody has given me feedback, which is... um. Okay, actually, my dad sort of did, and Saren said she liked it, and a coworker said she liked it, but otherwise, I'm still left longing in the constructive (or otherwise!) criticism department.

As a result, I've not gone back to do any of the (necessary) work on it. *I* haven't even reread the story since I wrote it.

So, it only makes sense that an idea for a sort of sequel would start popping up in my mind. It's *just* an idea at this point - not even a plot or really any characters (other than one, and she's really just an avatar)... but it's not going away. Hrm.
