The Status of Things

I'm still a horrible employee (in my opinion), but it looks like my current contract is going to be extended until September, so that's good news. I really would prefer not to be unemployed again. (While the not-having-to-work was fun, the poverty was not).

I only wrote 2k of the 4k words that I needed to write this weekend. Hopefully I can pull off the remaining 2k before Wednesday - this is all for The Novel Project, of course. On the upside, I may have found a way for Chapter 7 to suck a little less - but it hinges on that 2k words that I still need to write.

On Wednesday, I will be fighting aliens. More details on that to come, but I've been booked to run around like an idiot in the background of a series called Falling Skies.

I still don't have a place to live in March...but the month is still young. Hopefully there are some landlords out there who are very slow to list their amazing affordable places. I haven't started packing yet. I need to procure some boxes.

Now I should really stop procrastinating and eat some lunch. (You know you have a problem with procrastination, when you procrastinate eating even though you are starving.)

Ooh! I quite like Falling Skies! I didn't know it had been renewed, either, so that's good news all around. Look at you, being all extra-y lately. That's awesome.

Also, yay job!

Cool! I will tell you the episode number once I know it, and then you can keep an eye out for me when you watch. :)

I don't know why there's been a sudden upswing in extra-work, but I'm not complaining. It gets me out of the house.

Your answers definitely help! Not with my current 2k problem, but with future events. I'm sure I'm still getting everything wrong with the character, but I'm banking on the fact that the community is so diverse that maybe he's still within the realm of believe-ability. :P

Seriously though, you've helped make him a more complex character, so I do owe you a lot of thanks. :)

Ooo, Falling Skies! I've heard really, really good things about it. And one of my favorite actors was/is on it. If I could afford another apocalyptic show on my roster I'd probably be watching.

I hope you find a place to live! I know how much it sucks to know you're gonna have to move soon and still having no prospects.

Oh hey, Noah Wyle is on it too! (Haha, sorry, just looked up the cast list). I used to watch him back when I watched ER (only watched the first season or two).

Yeah, I'm trying not to stress out about it, but I'm really hoping that I'm able to secure a place by next week. Otherwise the whole "don't stress out" thing will be REALLY hard.

LOL Yeah...one of my favorite actors from Sanctuary, Ryan Robbins, apparently has been in it, so that's what's made me want to start watching. IDK, I just don't want another depressing apocalyptic show.

*squishes* It'll happen.

Yeah, I'm not looking for another "intense" show at the moment either - which is why it's kind of funny doing these extra gigs. The only production that I know anything about in town is Supernatural, and the odds of me getting on that are slim to none. (A girl can dream though).

Thanks for the *squish* :)

Ooh, I quite like Falling Skies. It's supposed to be post-apocolyptic Boston...I wondered where it was filmed. There is a lot of running around...I bet you'll be escaping aliens!

Congrats on the extending of the job, and good luck on the apt hunting. I hope you find something really good very quickly!

Thanks! I hope I find something too. :)

It's going to be filmed inside a mall - so I guess those look the same the world over ;)
