The Damned and the Saved

Odds and Ends

I miss writing my silly HP/SPN crossover epic. I want to start a sequel or finish the Bobby + Hermione piece I've been working on, but my stupid job keeps getting in the way and I'm supposed to be writing regular fiction.

Novel is slow going. I can't get the voice right.

I've decided to accept the fact that I'm never going to get better at my job or like it more. Oddly, this is comforting. Probably because "Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torments of man" (Nietzsche).

I'm thinking about breaking into the video-making world. This makes me nervous, as I'm frustrated easily, and don't like most learning-curves of new software. Still, I have this new fancy laptop and I think I should put it to good use.

Oh, yes, I have a new fancy laptop! It's awesome.

A really cool thing about Windows 7 is that you can shuffle your desktop background! Right now I have it alternating between my favorite Supernatural screen-caps/fanarts. It changes every 30 minutes. This ends my 7 year streak of having Orson from Record of Lodoss War as my desktop image. So, yeah, hold on a second:

Dear Orson,

You are and will forever remain my first love. Please rest assured, that although your image has been replaced with Sam and Dean Winchester on my desktop, they could never replace you in my heart. The WInchesters may not be emotionless beserkers with great swords, but they look better in wide-screen than you do.

Love you always,

Alright, glad I got that out of the way.
