Yep – It’s A White Christmas…

*sigh*

Bad enough we had ice on top of snow, but to have more snow on top of it? At least the snowfall seems to be easing after about two hours… well, what I can see of it through the security cameras and out the window behind my desk…

Only just over an hour and a half left of my 12 hr. shift – I’m looking forward to going home and spending the rest of the night with the cats.

Had a wonderful Christmas Eve with my aunt at her place, and I got some very nice pressies from everyone. Going to be calling the Newfoundland relatives up tomorrow to offer thanks to my grandmother, and express my wishes that everyone had a good Christmas…

And even being here at work for most of Christmas hasn’t been too bad. It’s always been my habit to spend Christmas afternoon relaxing with any books I manage to get, or writing… and while I haven’t exactly been doing that (while I brought one of the two books I was given to work, I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet – I’ve been pre-occupied with other stuff) it’s still been a fairly relaxing day.

With the exception of the exterior patrols. It’s not fun trying to watch your feet to make sure you don’t slip on the ice that’s on the ground while at the same time trying to check the second and third story windows from outside to make sure they’re all closed… But I managed it, and without any spills! *cheers*

Then got involved in a fascinating email discussion with Vathara (RK, GW, or Stargate fans might know her fics on Fanfiction.Net), going from last night to today, and now I’ve got one of those blasted RK plot bunnies in my corral! (Which is obviously going to have to be expanded – it’s starting to get a wee bit too crowded in there… Wonder if my parents’ place in Costa Rica has the metaphysical space available to provide an expansion?)

Anyway, hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and here’s looking forward to a Happy New Year! (Quite in advance, yes, but good wishes never hurt…)

Later!

Who Would Have Guessed…

Being on a creative high (like I have been all night at work – and, in fact, all evening before work as well) really brightens my mood immensely. (Check out my current mood to see what I mean!) *G*

Oh, I’m having a great time! For the first time since July, Liam is actually cooperating with me, so – while I won’t get Eye of the Storm finished by the end of November (as I’d originally really, really hoped I would), I may just get it done by the end of December… which still leaves me 4-1/2 months to get the novel sequel written in order to have Dreams, Memories & Truths Vol. II ready for MediaWest*Con 2005. Hey, I can do it – I managed to finish In Search of the Truth (novel prequel to Eye of the Storm) in 4 months, after all…

Yeah, I think my current mood is pretty obvious, don’t you? *G*

The Musae Are Back!

And Liam and Sandoval are yelling, thank goodness…

I can’t seem to stop smiling, even though I’m rewriting almost all of Pt. 13 of Eye of the Storm – but hey, it’s likely to lead to me actually getting Pt. 14 started, so that’s all to the good, right?

Off to do a bit of re-reading (to remind myself of some details) before going on to get work done…

Corralling the Musae

AKA: I have too many stories in too many fandoms on the go right now, and am having difficulty focusing…

HELP! Suggestions for assistance in focusing would be more than welcome, particularly as some of said stories have rapidly approaching deadlines…

*Hiding at the far end of the Plot Bunny Corral and trying to gag Saito and Methos while getting Liam and Heero to focus on telling me what’s going on (as opposed to discussing ‘what defines one as normal/human’ with each other)…*
