I'm still alive!

How's everyone doing?

I'm having a busy summer. I don't think I'm going to be getting anything fandom-related done until I get back to Vancouver in mid-August... so this journal might end up being a little dead for a bit.

I don't really have anything besides that to say... so ,yeah, hope you all are well.

I guess this is your bi-weekly, "Hey, how's it going?" hiatus post.

Hey Alix. I hope you are having a fun time with friends and family. See you soon.

Thanks! I am! I hope you are having a good summer too. :)

Life is for living, plenty of time for blogging later :)
Jul. 22nd, 2014 08:38 pm (UTC)
Very true! :)
Jul. 22nd, 2014 08:28 pm (UTC)
Glad to hear from you. Have a nice time!
Jul. 22nd, 2014 08:39 pm (UTC)
Thanks! You too! :)

Looking forward to your stories of Vancon and your rewatch of season 9!

Thanks! Me too!

I might need you to beta something for me (not fandom related) - but I'm not sure I'm going to get it written in time anyway, so I haven't mentioned anything yet. But let me know if you are super busy or anything... and no worries if you are. Obviously, I'm so busy that I'm not sure I'm even going to be able to write it, so I'll completely understand.

not fandom related

Now you have made me curious!

Anytime after the next 2 weeks I will have lots of time. My kids and grandkid are visiting until Aug. 7...and after they leave I will need something to look forward to!

There's a call to submissions for short-stories, and I was thinking I'd try to write something for it. It's due August 14th though (which also happens to be the day I fly back to Vancouver), and I'm so busy between now and then, I'm not sure it's going to happen.

Anyway, you've been the best beta that I've had so far when it comes to condensing and clarifying my overly wordy sentences - and since the word count has to be no greater than 7k, I could really use that!

But, like I said, I'm not sure when/if I'm going to have the time to write - so, I'll let you know. I already told my BFF about the story idea though, and he wants to read it regardless of whether I get it done in time to submit it... so, even if I miss the deadline, I'll probably still write it.

Hi, Alix! *waves* :D
Hope you're having fun back east. Is it hot back there? We finally cooled off out here.

Only a month until VanCon!!!!!
Jul. 23rd, 2014 05:24 am (UTC)
It's actually been amazingly pleasant here! I guess all the hot weather has been hanging out on the West Coast. Though, I'm glad to hear that it's cooling off there.

Yay VanCon!!

Well that's good. That eastern humidity sucks.

Hey, I hate to bother you while you're on vacation, but I've got a location question for you...

You know all that filming Phil did w/the Impala & Jensen & Jared's doubles at the end of last season? The scenes we're now seeing in almost every ep that's more dry desert instead of green trees? Do you know where those were filmed at? I'm thinking Kelowna, but I'm not sure.
Jul. 23rd, 2014 06:33 am (UTC)
I wouldn't be able to tell you exact locations - but definitely the Okanagan SOMEWHERE. So, the outskirts of Kelowna is a pretty safe bet. You'd have to get someone one a little more familiar with the Okanagan to get any more specific. I do have a friend from there on twitter, so I could ask if she recognized any specific locations - for the most part though, it seems to be mostly scenery without buildings, and that's harder to pin down.

But yeah, those scenes are definitely Okanagan Valley.
Jul. 23rd, 2014 07:34 am (UTC)
Yeah, I've been searching for street signs, but the ones I've seen I can't read. Grrrr.
There's been a few motels. Maybe those would be easier to recognize?

At least I'm in the right area....thanks. :)

I'm on staycation, so I've been catching up on fics - not going very well :)
Jul. 23rd, 2014 02:46 pm (UTC)
I'm on a quasi-staycation, because, while I'm not in Vancouver, I'm just at my family's places in Ontario where they feed and house me. :P

Except, that then I spend all my time visiting with them and helping them with home-repair, and I'm hardly ever on my computer to get anything done!

I hope you are able to catch up on some good fics before your staycation is over!
Jul. 23rd, 2014 03:04 pm (UTC)
"Will work for food" sort of thing? :)

Oh, it's ok - when I start work I'll be reading as many fics, as I do now. I'll just be sleeping less :)))
Jul. 23rd, 2014 03:07 pm (UTC)
Haha, you sound like me - only I'm reading LESS fic now that I'm on vacation. :P

And yeah, it's pretty much exactly a "will work for food" sort of thing. ;)
Jul. 23rd, 2014 11:53 am (UTC)
I've been doing a bit of fanfic writing and reading, as well a Supernatural rewatch. Also, I just have to say how helpful (and fun) your clothes posts are! :D
Jul. 23rd, 2014 02:43 pm (UTC)

Sounds like you're having a relaxing time of it!
Jul. 24th, 2014 12:33 am (UTC)
Glad you're doing good and keeping busy!

I will going up to a no-internet-out-in-the -boonies cabin next weekend. Scurrying to get everything done beforehand!
Jul. 24th, 2014 12:57 am (UTC)
Good luck! Enjoy the cabin!
Jul. 24th, 2014 01:24 am (UTC)
thank you!
