When nothing else works...  
The message is: When nothing else works...
I've been fiddling with the BB for Xmen this year and it's coming along nicely - done 1K today so it's slowly stumbling past 22K and I've still got plenty to write. Should be able to get even more done tonight.

However, while I had a break from it, doing laundry - and playing games XD - I had a thought back to my nano from last year (XMFC, modern-day AU, Action/adventure). I 'finished' it but never edited it as I wasn't feeling too hot about it at the time. It wasn't bad just... not good enough *g*

So, I got to thinking while loading laundry into the machine... and realized that the one term that could lift it and thus save it was: (when I'm done with the BB, don't worry!)

"Needs more aliens!"

*nods happily and puts the 2nd pot of coffee on*

*raises can of stout*  
TFIF (That's a vehement thank fuck it's friday btw)

I'm on the second can of beer (relax, first one was enjoyed while cooking and doing the dishes, the second one here is me enjoying the spoils of war the fact that not only is it weekend, but...



Yeah, yeah, strictly speaking I was done on Monday nigth (that's a new record for me, I think!), but the official verification didn't happen until today.

*dances a little dance of joy - stumbles*

Now, I just have to do my secret mutant and I can get back to the 50+K of x-men/Indiana Jones/Romancing the stone fusion *eg* (seriously, I realized while writing I'm just about the biggest cock block EVER XD - Just ask Erik, he'll tell you how mean I've been to him for the past month).


Just in case you guys want a rec for a stout? This is fabulous *g* (if you like 'em tall, dark and handsome)

This and that and I kicked NaNo's arse!  
So, had a great weekend in Copenhagen - from Friday, where I went to visit [personal profile] oneiriad and stayed the night. We spent the evening surfing through the archive of Scandinavia and the world - laughing at the stereotypes.

Saturday we went into Copenhagen and met up with [personal profile] calvinahobbes and [personal profile] nora_charles - we also had a bit of a gawk at a huge group of teenage girls, apparently lobbying to get Justin Bieber to Denmark... apparently it's a recurring event. They wer loud, shrill. But dedicated, no doubt about that.

We went for a small walk to get to Hachés, which is a gourmet burger restaurant that [personal profile] skuf, [personal profile] nora_charles and I had visited last time. Good food, good beer etc. And apparently deep fried mars bar as a delicatesse...

... BWAHAHAHAHAH, *wipes eyes* sorry.

Anywho, we then went into Tivoli and had fun with a few rides and walking about with all the pretty lights and the Christmas Market they had set up. Russian style this year. Pretty, but damn, it was crowded.

Eventually, [personal profile] kabal42 joined us and we hit another ride before eventually getting ready for [personal profile] oneiriad, [personal profile] kabal42 and yours truly to go watch the Crazy Christmas Cabaret. It wsa.. hilarious. Fun but you'd need to be more than just good at English and even more so at slang. Silly and funny and oh, so very entertaining.

When we came back out some 2 hours and 20 mins later, we tracked down the others who had been joined by [personal profile] exeterlinden and were waiting for us at the train station. We then sat around enjoying the company until it was time for us to head off in various directions.

So, [personal profile] nora_charles and I headed off towards home and I think it was around 3AM before I came in my own front door.

Let's see, I promised a variety of links and such, but right now my brain just isn't tracking all that well. Will have a look at that tomorrow. Feel free to jolt my memory if I forget anything LOL

Now, I'd managed to tip the nano up and just over 40K on the Friday before leaving. And the Sunday meant writing a good 8K - and ah... ahem. watching Thundercats, because WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME THERE WAS A REMAKE!!!!!?

*dances a little jig* So six eps on Sunday and six tonight and I was caught up (I hate their cliffhanger, I get invested, shut up!) I may also still have a bit of a crush on Panthro... and the big thundcats tank...

So, yeah, ahem.

In other words, I had a good time, and...

general update  
Am on train to Copenhagen for a couple of fannish days. Dunno when I'm home again, but at least I'm well ahead on the nano. Hit 40K this morning *g* It'll be hell editing it, but its still been fun to do. If I manage well on Sunday, I may beat my own record. which I seem to recall being the 23rd.

*winces at the thought of amount of editing to do. afterwards*
