Peace Out Bitches

Quick Reaction: 9x04 Slumber Party

Hello! Okay, so today I didn't eat much - then I chugged a glass of wine - then I ate half a pizza, then I drank two more glasses of wine...

Also, before we even watched the episode (but after the first chugged glass of wine), I was told that David Bowie and Annie Lennox had once performed "Under Pressure" together on stage... and WHY HAD NO ONE TOLD ME THIS BEFORE? We watched it on youtube and it is GLORIOUS and AMAZING and I FELL IN LOVE.

So, yeah, drunk and high off a ridiculously sexy performance, it was time for Supernatural... let's see how much I remember...

Next week looks like crack!

As per usual, let me know what I missed that you desperately would like to discuss...

No longer unemployed (at least for November)

Well, that didn't last long.

Contracting company (that annoys me) wants me to work in November (and possibly longer, but I haven't promised them anything yet.) It'll be doing very similar work to what I was doing (so... still boring depressing job), but it'll be the kind of work that I can do while listening to audiobooks, and it won't be QUITE as depressing as the other job? Mostly just boring, but boring I can deal with.

Anyway, this really puts a spanner in my plans for November - which was to do a sort of mini-nanowrimo for the fantasy novel that I want to write, as well as finish up the S8 rewatch and update the clothing catalogue (all while timelining the new season). Not to mention that I have a crochet commission for a friend to finish up... and also a just-started sewing project currently taking up nearly all of my kitchen counter (makes it hard to cook too.)

I guess, in retrospect, I should have been more productive in October... but I was too busy enjoying the fact that I didn't HAVE to do anything that I didn't feel like doing at any given moment. It was glorious. One thing is for sure though - I'm going to have to lay off the obsessive fic-reading for a while if I want to get anything done. (I also have a stack of physical books that are demanding to be read.)

Anyway... I guess we'll see what happens. I'm still debating what I should do next, career-wise, and it's true that I didn't HAVE to take this job - but the fact of the matter is that money is nice to have and working in November will ensure that I have money until January, which gives me just that much more time to find something else or figure out what I'm doing otherwise.
