:) :D ;) ;D

Well, I feel like making a quick, happy list, even though school awaits me and I haven't got very long to do it.

1. I need to do school.

2. Tonight I am going to attempt to make my friend Beth's birthday present - I think it's safe to say it on this blog because I don't think she knows it exists....but just in case, you'll have to highlight the next bit of black space to see what I'm doing - I bought some red journals yesterday and I'm going to try to draw on Dustfinger, Gwin, and fire. If Dustfinger fails, then I'll suffice with just Gwin, with his little horns, and fire, and perhaps a few other things to make the cover look filled. Maybe even the green lizard, or the spider from the cover...but either way it's going to be a homemade Inkheart Journal. I may have to make myself one at some point, because the journal package I got has three, all red. Anywho, I'm excited about trying, and it gives me an excuse to think about the book, and I'm seriously considering rereading it.....

3. My, that last one was long

4. A new writing project has been thrust upon me, when that requires diligence on the same project for two weeks, and as soon as that two weeks is up, on to the next. Details later, probably, but as it involves short stories and characters from my Bumping Midnight books, I have decided to create a time line on brown paper. Some people can't stand doing stuff like that - outlining - but I love it, and as hard and confusing it's going to be to make one, I'm very excited. It will be a gigantic time line. Maybe I'll post a picture.

5. I want to keep writing things and posting them, but I've got to stop if I have any hope of getting some school done in time to make dinner and then have time to work on the Dustfinger journal, a friendship bracelet in Dustfinger colors to go with it, work on the timeline, clean my room, fix something on my Script Frenzy, talk to my friend Naomi, work on some papers for my writing class, finish watching The Wrath of Kahn for the third or fourth time, AND watch some Fringe.

6. I have more to do than I thought. So I better get started. Posts, updates, books/movies o/ the month soon!

My Weekend Summed up Thus Far:

Lots of sleeping and lots of Star Warzing. What is Star Warzing? Star Warzing is like bejeweling - instead of bejewling a bag or a jacket, for instance, you Star Warz it. I have been Star Warzing my trusty purple bag, my bag that goes with me on most trips beyond the grocery store and Wal Mart. (Library, class, meeting, overnight, plane trip, etc....)

Thus far I have put Darth Vadar, Han Solo, an Ewok, R2D2, a stormtrooper, the millenium falcon, three TIE fighters and the Star Wars logo on it. My next challenges are:

Princess Leia
Anakin Skywalker
The Death Star
Chewbacca
Obi Wan Kenobi

and perhaps, if I have room, further quotes (I've already got A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... on there), C-3PO, Padma Amidala and Luke Skywalker. The problem with all of these challenges - especially the people - is my drawing skills. Han Solo is a lucky exception because of an outstanding photograph that can be reduced perfectly to pure black and white with no in-betweens. The biggest challenge thus far is either a toss-up between Han Solo and the stormtrooper. Those are about to be wiped off the board when I attempt Anakin Skywalker and Princess Leia. I think Chewie will be easier. Obi Wan is going to be difficult. Blah. But I'm so excited that the bag is coming together so well! Now to make a wonderful evening of fried chicken, reading, a movie, further Star Warzing, and possibly getting out and/or hanging out with Autumn. I hope. ;)

And wouldn't you know...

I'm liking these random posts that are just lists of random things.

1) Rewatched the Primeval episode with the raptors in the shopping mall. I love the part when Connor asks Abby for the gun.

2) Strawberries and whipped cream? Oh my gosh. New favorite snack.

3) Enjoyed Castle tonight - I love it when there's a line that makes me and Dad both laugh out loud.

4) Finished rereading a book today, can't wait to start another one

5) Behind on Script Frenzy

6) A bit behind on most things writing related, actually...I'm on a normal schedule for my writing assignments though. I always wait till last minute.

7) Behind in Les Miserables, but loving it anyways

8) Thinking I need to go get my violin out and play with it here in a few minutes....

Ah!

I don't want Nick Cutter to be dead, and I don't want to wait a year to see how Connor, Abby and Danny are gonna get out of their fix! They're stuck! Are they gonna die there? STARVE?! GET EATEN! AAH! I need to know now, but I can't, because they've only just started filming! -_-

For the record, Connor Temple is hilarious. He makes me laugh frequently. And I like the fingerless gloves. And his little taped in box at Lester's house, with all of the 'DO NOT' notes. That was nice. :)

Tomorrow....creation/creativity galore.

Hopefully...but no promises....lots of reading, as I'm behind on a lot, lots of writing, about to be behind on a lot....Script Frenzy, you know, plus the FIVED projects, plus The Great Elation really needs to be finished. Plus I miss Bumping Midnight.

Art has been beckoning me for a few weeks now. I need to do my bag (I'm converting my purple bag into a Star Wars extravaganza with Sharpies and Fabric Markers) AND I have bookmarks to do AND I really want to make a Harry Potter Poster.

And I want to make some friendship bracelets.

And draw some posters for my book and it's musical counterpart.

And compose songs for the musical counterpart.

Tomorrow will be fun. :)
