Quick post to say I'm still alive!

Life has been busy, with spring here finally. I've been enjoying going out to the Pit with Imriel, sometimes twice a day because the weather has been that nice.

I do have some news of a personal nature, as I've been on enough dates with a new guy to consider myself "in a relationship." This time is a bit weird though, because my mother is on Facebook now and thus is all asking questions about him. For here, I'll just say his name is Josh and he's pretty cool. We have a good time hanging out and, assuming things go well, I will no doubt be mentioning him here in the future.

Not much else going on. I'm not going to finish work on the novella in time for Camp NaNoWriMo, because I'm too good at distracting myself. But I've given myself a deadline of Victoria Day (May 18th, which is a stat holiday here, for those who aren't in Canada). I have extra motivation to get it done soon, because I think I want to try and get the self-publishing thing going in time to maybe have copies to bring to NerdCon:Stories, assuming I go ... and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go.

I also finally finished my second playthrough of the Mass Effect trilogy. I went with the Synthesis ending this time, which I found depressing since it's the first time my Shepard has been completely gone, since my first Shep went for Control and is thus basically a Reaper now, which is sort of badass.

Next ME playthrough will be a Renegade male!Shep who is super pro-human and a bit of a bigot about everything else. Should be fun!

Also, alas, the Sens were eliminated but it was an awesome go of it. I will be keeping the icon up for a few more days.

Return of an old icon (admittedly a little late to do that) and I've found myself a different meme for the night:

GO SENS GO! Hurrah for the series being tied coming back to Ottawa, my teams have not been doing all that well (I'm cheering for Vancouver, Pittsburg, and St Louis, FYI).

General note for Himitsu people: As has been mentioned before, I need to earn a whole lot of retroactive leniencies to cover what I missed last block due to internet issues and funerals. I have a good start on them with fic and other things but I also really need to get a LOT of extra activity. So basically, if you need anything, let me know and I will find a character who can do it.

However, I am working tonight so I will not be around between 6-12 EST most likely. Not sure how much I will be around in the afternoon because I have a baby shower to go to but I will try to be home from 4-5:30 or so if there's anyone who won't be around later.

GIP! It's playoff time, bitches!

Also go Vancouver, especially since all and all they have a much better chance. Canucks vs Sens FINAL FTW.

I love living in houses that are converted to become apartments. It always leads to fun electrical situations!

The neighbours blew a fuse doing...something, I didn't ask what. And by doing this, they knocked out my lighting. Nothing else, just the ceiling lights in the living room, kitchen, and hall-thingy. Maybe the bedroom and bathroom too, but I didn't check.

Good thing I was here and could go downstairs and fix it easily, since I'm the only one with basement access. One hour later and neighbours would have been out of luck.

Also, I love Chris Neil. He is awesome. GO SENS! Even if you totally don't deserve to win this game, I hope you do (it's not like they've never lost a game where they outplayed the opponent).

Edit: Sigh, Pens got another one. But we're not dead yet!

And...I note a distinctive lack of Sidney Crosby's name on the goals list and that's something to be happy about.
