Stuff and things and reminders!

I missed Monday and Bluesday, and now ... WE ARE AWESOME EVERY DAY! THAT'S what matters!

WE ARE SO VERY AWESOME!!! TOO AWESOME!!!

Now, my major point is to remind you all (and me) to update your numbers! The count will be early Saturday morning!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!! WE ARE THAT AWESOME!

Now, as you may know, I don't have reliable internet access at home. It's why I tend to dissapear on weekends. I'm off on vacation as of 5PM EST today and not back until Tuesday. So that means a longer bit to be barely accessible. It also means that things at work have been crazy getting ready for vaca, and will be crazy for a week when I get back. Sorry to be sporadic! You people are frequently the highlight of my day. I mean look at all the pool party stuff! All the challenge stuff! ALL THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE!

Also, we are almost at 200 people! That blows my mind!

As for awesome for me, today is my Eggsaversary. 4 years ago I picked up my pup at the airport, one of the two best decisions of my life! You folks are the other!

Now, go update your numbers, and then tell me your big awesome plans to be even more awesome!

I'm doing my best to actually hit my Big Buddy word count of 50k, but I've been fighting with my flat rental agency (they're trying to deduct money from my initial deposit for various damages) for the whole of July, and it's really triggering.

I haven't looked at my personal email (I've got a separate one for writing) for two days in an effort to wrap up my big bang, but I can't put it off for much longer or they'll take it as proof that I'm delaying the process for no reason.

And a couple of other things in real life. It hasn't been the best month for me, and August wouldn't be much better.

I'm sorry you're having such a crappy month (and that the outlook for August doesn't seem to be any better). *big hugs* and hoping that it levels out for you soon.

Now, go forth and put that big bang in its place!

Thank you, I hope you feel better too in August.

Just finished it (minus the smut; my friend would completely understand if I can't write lemons at the moment, so that's all fine), am beta-reading it now. I've about 36 hours to my posting deadline, which is more than enough time.

Thanks. :D

YAY! And yeah, definitely. I know I need to be in a certain frame of mind to write the smutty parts, so I know your friend will understand. W00T! :D

WHOOP! Enjoy your vacation! And happy forever home day to Eggs! (And now I'm crying, because I'm an idiot and I'm missing my Alfie...)

July hasn't been a good word month for me, probably because it hasn't been a good emotional month for me either... despite my birthday and all the good things that happened this month. But hopefully August will be better. :D

I have no plans to be awesome, my only goal is to survive this week. :D

*hugs* Alfie was awesome and deserves to be missed. And you, you are a more awesome person for having had the experience, for loving Alfie. You've been touched It is too much for me to refrain from snorting at that and it is something that should be missed. *more hugs*

Now find a thousand more words before Saturday. Well, payroll first, then a thousand words!

*hugs back* Thank you so much. :) Hahaha... yeah, it's always good to find something to laugh at no matter how bleak it all seems.

I shall endeavor to do just that. I managed 1005 words yesterday, so maybe I can find another 1k over the next few days?

Oh... AND PAYROLL IS DONE AND IT'S NOT EVEN 9 AM YET! SCORE!

My plan is to get my Pool Party icons/sig tags done today! I don't use banners a lot, so I'm thinking anyone who likes Sense8 or who might have a fandom friend who could use them can snag 'em. :).

It's fun - there's so much pretty to play with! And they're almost done.

Then, I have at least two fic chapters that should be doable by the 31st. I've been very stuck on them, but.... what can you do. Hoping to push through!

PS, have a great vacation! Ah, July/August and days off- a lovely combination!

I have a story due Sunday, but the words are not flowing. Too tired to get my head to wrap around a plot. T.T SO currently my only plans are to catch up on my sleep. Especially now that Squirrel sleeps through most of the night.

Well, I got my Pool Party done, now I'm finally cracking this one fic which has been playing on my mind since last year but which I nearly deleted altogether after something too autobiographical almost crept in.

I think my words won't change much before Friday night but I do need to update the graphics count so I'll get on that.

Happy Eggsaversary, babe! ;-)

As for the rest, just making it to Friday will be good.

Wow. I never updated. O.O I'll do in a few minutes - after counting.

[Edit!] Updated.

I'm a bit behind writing but I'm almost done with my grahics. This makes me proud. *-* I'm also proud that I really managed to write over 1,500 words. I'm not that good with writing. But I really managed those words. *woot, woot*

Just finished updating my numbers, and I'm proud to say I managed to actually wow myself this month! In large part, mind you, thanks to this comm. I love this place, and I love the people who run it! You are all so friendly and supportive, and that feeling seems to pass over the whole comm! I hope to be here, and a contributing member, for a very long time to come!!

And now, for July: 47,821 words!!!!!!!!!!!
Which brings my current yearly total up to 221,234 words!!!!!!!!
And here I would've been happy if I hit 200k at the end of the year!!!!
