I am tired and cranky and have had a thoroughly non-productive week (or two). :P I've spent the past week and a half playing phone tag with support staff for two separate issues at work and still haven't managed to get ahold of the one guy directly, while the other could only offer excuses and a target date in September for when they might - maybe - have the issue fixed. Blech. Add in staff whining about a brand new keyboard because they don't like the angle
of its design and the fact that it's white, not black, (in other words, it's *gasp* different
, oh horror of horrors!!) and I'm ready to throw something at someone. Argh!!
At any rate, here I am, taking my afternoon break to post since I may not get around to doing so this weekend. I've been to Aquafit twice already this week and I'm going again tonight, I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 2 one night (anybody know when 3 is due out?!), and I'm spending Friday, Saturday, and Sunday taking an intermediate glass fusing course, after which I will probably go home and collapse from exhaustion. The fusing course runs from 10-5 all three days. Yikes! It's not cheap, either - works out to about $100/day. Guh. All materials are included, however, as are the firings, and we're making at least three or four projects, so that's not too bad (a single firing is about $45); it's just a kind of big chunk of cash all at once. We're going to learn about glass compatibility and how to program the kiln's controller, not just make things, so it should be interesting. *crosses fingers* However, it all boils down to the fact that I'm really not going to have much writing time, nor have I had much at any point lately.
I promised myself that I'd try to post something fic-related every week or two, just to try and keep the muse going. Since I haven't gotten much accomplished on the writing front, all I have to offer at the moment is a chunk of another one of those random scribblings:( Untitled BtVS scribble #4, crossover, eventual S/X, 1/?, Rated... err, FRT, I guess... )
There's a couple more chunks of this done, plus I've got a few other odds and ends that aren't too far from being ready for posting as a "random scribbling", at least. All I need to do is find a few minutes to work on them when I'm not too tired and distracted to concentrate.
Yeah, right. :P
Will post pics of the glass fusing projects at some point, hopefully. *makes mental note to take and post pics of glass beads from torchworking class a couple of weeks ago, too*
