Sunday update

I am hopping among three stories depending on my mood: the detailed outline for T&P part 2, "Blackmail", and the NaNoWriMo project. The two longer pieces need planning, not writing, so I switch to the short smutty thing when I want to spew words at the screen.

I'm going to have to switch modes to my tenyearsofbuffy ficathon story, though. And soon. The prompt there is Old-School Scoobies, library, tea, dust, demon. So I am thinking a traditional hunt the demon tale, set in Season 2 just after "The Dark Age". Giles' point of view. Buffy & Angel at a high point, Giles pining for Jenny, Xander and Willow not yet hoooked up with other people. A nice stable platform for a Monster of the Week story. Now I just have to invent a monster.

I also spent several hours adding features to my BPAL tracking app on both days this weekend. Scent data is now up to date, and there's a for-trade feature. Among a hundred other small improvements. I own too much BPAL. I need to start giving it away. I own three bottles that I bought as presents for people then for some reason failed to give away. How did I manage to forget that?

Was thinking in general this weekend that I need to lighten my karmic load. Or whatever the jargon is. Own less stuff. Give it away, sell it, whatever. Just so I'm less tied down by it. Music gear, for instance. I should sell it all. Everything I own. That would feel better.

Hmm. I'll keep the pets.

I seem to have come down with a cold, which probably explains my depression yesterday. And the unwillingness to get out of bed. Strangely, despite the stuffy head and achy body today, I'm more active.

I'm sorry you're feeling poorly. If it is the same thing I have, it hangs on for a bit, but don't give up hope on feeling better soon. :)
It's the usual cold snifflies, I think. Bleah. Hope you get better soon too! Vitamin C and zink!
I feel for you on the tenyearsofbuffy thing. I was you a few days ago. Luckyily the muse hit me this morning and I have a story. I'm letting it sit before I type it up and send it your way. It needs a little more detail I'm thinking, but other than that it's perfect.

Keep the pets, they keep you anchored.

Get well soon! I have a bit of a cold/sinus thing going on too. Must be making the rounds. *hugs*
Few things are as neat as a kitten flinging herself at me joyously. Darn it, gotta figure out this plot. Looking forward to reading yours :)
I do so love your BPAL tracking thingy. I keep trying to decide if using a portion of my tax return on buying more scents is ok or not. Leaning towards ok, and have found a few on your list I might consider getting in the future that I might not have otherwise.

Oh, and WOW. You do own quite a few imps and bottles! lol
I'm kinda proud of the tracker. It's got some neat features now. And I was staggered when I took inventory today and figured out how many I have. It's time to get rid of a bunch of 'em.
Much sympathy for the cold. My blonder half was knocked flat by it most of last week, so he might be your vector. :/
Thinking of ditching the music? Wow! I'm shocked and I don't even know whether you mean the mixing electronics or the guitars. Completly understand, but still shocked. Are you sure it isn't just wanderlust or a spring cleaning binge coming 'round early?
The electronic stuff I think. While people still use hardware synthesizers. I'll keep the guitars. I have been thinking about taking lessons.

I dunno who to blame for the cold. Hubby is unsick.
... Giles pining for Jenny... Oh, yay, yes please, write this! :)
I am a needy, needy G/J shipper. o_O

Hope you feel better soon!
I have so been looking for an excuse to write Giles/Jenny recently. This bit can't be entirely happy & smoochy because of the timing, but I can sure have them sneaking looks.
