Just to let you know, what with the ceiling collapse and whatnot, RL has been kicking my ass. Yes, the ceilings have been replaced and strengthened, but we STILL have not restored this place entirely to normal - i.e. there are still filthy legos on the back porch, stuffed animals as yet uncleaned, and drawers still to be vacuumed, among other delightful tasks still to be completed. And we will not even mention, I am still 30 pounds heavier than I was when I got pregnant with The Barbarian, oh, almost 3 years ago.
I was stressing in ways that don't even bear mentioning, trying to figure out how to get back to exercising, get all the household tasks accomplished, work a 40 hour week, chase a 2-year-old, and pursue my time-consuming hobbies. So I made a decision. As much as there are some things that I want to be writing, I just can't. And in fact, The Brain also WON'T. Not right now. Whenever I sit down to write, I just don't have the energy, patience, or inclination. I read instead.
So instead, I'm doing other useful things.
First, I'm converting all my del.icio.us bookmarks into entries on my library pages. My goal is to add one day from del.icio.us per day til they are all caught up. I started with the SG-1 page
which now has a bunch of new entries on it. SGA page will follow, and probably take longer, because there is much more new stuff coming out in SGA than in SG-1.
As I've said before, these pages are a record of what I have been reading, so that I can find things again if I want to, though I will be adding other stuff later - old stuff, that I have to go and track down the links. If I had known about del.icio.us BEFORE I started the pages, I might not have bothered, but I like having everything in this journal, so I'm continuing the pages. Easier to share! Hopefully, I will be better at this bit of housekeeping after I get it caught up. Like the tags and memories. For anyone who wants to prod me on del.icio.us, my bookmarks are here
Second, I am trying to add at least one page per day to my website. If you wish to prod that
, you will find it at brainofck.110mb.com
. Please use the email contact there to let me know any thoughts you have about the site, or any dead links that do not go to a page clearly created by ME! I have created a dead links page. You will know I created it when you see it. :) If you get sent to an ad for 110mb's services, or if my porn is hijacked by nekkid chicks and gambling websites, please let me know!
So I'm not dead. I'm trying to give The Brain a break, and also to get back into some discipline of the body.
Meanwhile, I'm thinking about the Wingspan universe and my crazy crossover, so when I do come back, I can come back at 70 wpm.
All my love,
