I've been MIA for awhile, apparently. Heh. It's been a crazy time the last couple of weeks. Work is going fantastic--I love it to pieces. Our DD came yesterday and it was a great visit. Both he and my manager make me feel very valued and part of the team. I felt very good when I left work, and that in itself rocks. So yeah, work is good. We just finished floorset three days ago and it looks awesome. I mapped the sucker out and executed it with my team and it went very well. It'll be even better next time!

The family is good. Valentine's Day was nice--the day before, the mom got me pretty orange roses for my apartment, and then I headed out to the house for dinner. We had steaks and such and had a nice evening, as I had to work actual Valentine's Day. Mom got me a gift cards to Borders and JoAnn's, and Dad got me Taylor Swift's "Fearless"--which I am addicted to right now! And then a few days ago, they came by the store and gave me a gift I never expected. My mom got me a gorgeous pale pink Dooney and Bourke bucket purse. Eep. It's fantastic, and sits with my little Coach purse. Heh. But eee! Exciting. I am now trying to find a pink Dooney wallet to go with the purse. I got a pink wallet at Target the other day, and that will suffice.

Writing is still going well. I admit to slacking off a bit this month, but I am still on track to make my goal--woohoo! My allergies have been kicking my butt this time around, and I spent several days all icky and unmotivated to write. But then I keep looking at my spreadsheet for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout and that motivates me to keep going. The novel is over 40 pages long now, and seems to be going well. I got a little repetitive a couple of days ago, but I think once I get to the revision stage (a LONG way away!), that'll be taken care of. I've made a lot of progress on Spotlight, and Reasons Why has come a long way as well. I love writing Tony and Hannah for RW, and I am loving writing Ava, Lily, and Ryan for ITS.

Have the weekend off, and have no idea what I am going to do with myself. The mom is sick, but I have a feeling Dad and I might do something later. I'll probably go watch the Oscars with them tomorrow, but we shall see.

Watched Conan's last show tonight, and cried. And laughed at my beloved John Mayer--who had better be dressed up hard core for the Oscars. Hmph.

Bed now. Going to be productive somehow today!

Good night (morning!?)

almosthonest: (get your words out!)
As of today, I officially beat my January goal for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout! I have written 17,108 words so far, vs. a goal of 16,986 words! Yippee! This challenge has been absolutely fantastic and I have really stuck to the daily writing I pledged to do in 2009.

The novel (In The Spotlight) is really coming along, and it's changing from what my original thought and plan was, which is rather interesting. I may post a poll in the next day or so asking for some help naming a couple of things--namely album titles and helping choose hometowns. I think I know where I want everyone to be from, but I might toss it out there for debate of sorts. I love my characters and I really love where the plot seems to be going--even if it is a completely different direction than what I was thinking and/or planning.

Reasons Why is also coming along. I am in the middle of a Hiatus Pt 1 and 2 fic, but I need to go back and watch those eps to get everything relatively correct. I finished a Gibbs and Hannah fic a couple of weeks ago and liked how it turned out. I also am working on a Tony and Hannah's mom Emily fic. There's a couple of lines in that one that are so--Tony. I am beyond in love with writing this AU series.

Work is great. As I keep saying, I love my co-workers and this company and everything it stands for. I feel very valued and part of the team, and I am surrounded by fun, positive people. The customers are fantastic, and I know a lot of them from my former workplace. They are always surprised to see me and are glad to see me too. I'm just so content with things right now. I get to meet out DD (district director) for the first time face-to-face on Friday, and I am really looking forward to that.

Have the next two days off, and I plan to sleep in. I've been working very late nights the past three days and feel like a truck hit me. It's floorset time and we're frantically trying to make the store look its best! But now I can sleep. Heh. Will probably hang out with the mom a bit and stay at the house, but I'm not sure.

Off to either attempt being productive or to go to bed. Most likely trying to be productive. I'd like to get some more words in over the next couple of days to give me a cushion to start February! Either way, I hit my goal four full days before the end of the month! Yay!

Good night!

I've had the beginning of Tony and Hannah's wedding (my NCIS "Reasons Why" 'verse) written for a long time now. I started to type it out this evening and I am now over 1200 words. I think I've fallen in love with them all over again. Heh.

Am attempting to think of a good, plausible plotline to tie NCIS and CSI: Miami together. I have a scene written for the RW 'verse that has Horatio in DC visiting Tony and Hannah. I need to write a fic to establish their relationship. I know I can do a dead Marine in Miami or DC with ties to Miami (I could even tie in the Mal Noche gang and tie in Marisol's death as well--gah!). But if anyone has any ideas, toss them my way. I don't know if I can pull off a crossover, but I sure want to try! So I'll take any ideas or help I can get! *g*

The parents and I went to San Francisco last week. It was nice up there, and we went shopping at Union Square all day. The mom and I ended up spending some money at The Container Store--a bad, evil place. If they had one here, I'd live there. Seriously. I got little tins for some of my scrapbooking things, and a daisy shaped container for the same things. And then I found a gorgeous pink notebook with tabs and lined, graph, and blank paper in it. Eee! I am such a notebook lover that I really couldn't resist it. I've already transferred my fic notes for Reasons Why into it, and I'm going to start keeping it as a writing notebook. Websites, plot notes, character descriptions,, even song lyric snippets, etc. But yeah, it was a nice trip, despite my knee still being injured.

Yeah, the knee is still jacked up. It is slowly getting better, and ice, heat, and Advil are helping--along with a new knee brace, an Ace bandage, and various other things. Mom got a homeopathic joint remedy at Whole Foods for Dad's elbow and it didn't work for him, but by golly it works for me. I'm using it religiously, and hopefully I'll be back to normal soon.

Still plugging away on the job hunt. Still frustrated, but hanging in there. Hoping to get a couple of calls on things this week. We shall see. Please keep your fingers crossed if you have a moment for me--I'd appreciate it.

Off to bed. Unless the writing bug sticks around. That'd be nice for once.

Good night. (morning!?)

It's Miami night! Wheeee! I've been waiting very impatiently for this night for a while now. Eeeeee! The red-haired boyfriend is back on my TV in two hours and 8 minutes. Meep. So excited. I may or may not be bouncing.

I've been very moody the last day or so. Work is stressful and emotional right now. I cried a lot yesterday (and it wasn't just because I made the mistake of watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition last night either). I hate feeling the way I do right now, but I also know everyone has these moments where you just want to break down, cry, and be mad for awhile. I just don't understand why certain people that I care about can't let me just be mad for a bit. Maybe I don't want comfort or to talk about it, and yet I get made to. It's frustrating. Today was better, despite a growing work situation. The crazy co-worker is just that--crazy. And I mean literally. I fully believe she is insane. [livejournal.com profile] brightillusions can back me up on that. Sheesh. But hopewfully that whole thing will be taken care of very soon.

Hiring for my store is going well. I have three interviews lined up tomorrow, and two inductions in the next two days, so things are going well. The big signs are up at the store, and I need to go take some more photos. If I get a chance, I'll post the photos of the construction somewhere along the line.

I'm utterly addicted to Pat Monahan's solo album. "Last of Seven" is dynamite. I'm a very proud fan. The songs are fantastic, and there isn't one I don't like. "Pirate On The Run", "Ripple In The Water" and "Always Midnight" are my favorites, though. "Her Eyes" is so another version of Meet Virginia, and it makes me laugh.

I've been puttering on my Reasons Why 'verse again lately. I'm in the middle of writing college!Tony and Hannah at Christmastime at her family's home in Michigan. (I'm still debating if that is where she is from. I wanted somewhere cold and snowy for the winter, but we'll see if I change that or not). I need to go through the ledger my mom gave me and see what other fics I can play with. I still want to write one when Tony tells Hannah he loves her for the first time, and one when Tony gets hurt playing football. I wrote a snippet not long ago set in Season 1 when Kate meets Hannah for the first time. I need to finish that one, because she wonders how they even get along. Heh. It makes me smile.

On other writing fronts, I've finally come up with a character name for one of my main characters. He's a singer/songwriter touring with my main character's sister, who's also a singer. The singing sister now is the only one I need to come up with a name for, and it's got to fit with their last name, which is Bennett. Ava is the main character, and her sister's name is blank right now. I'll come up with something.

Found "That Thing You Do!", the special edition, on DVD at Best Buy the other day. That is absolutely one of my favorite movies. It makes me laugh AND cry. It's so awesome to have that one in my collection now. I've had the soundtrack for like, five years and only a copy of the movie on VHS, and now, a DVD. Yay!

Off to be anxious for Miami in an hour and 45 minutes. I've got popcorn and my bright pink CSI: Miami pillow that my best friend [livejournal.com profile] bookofdays gave me.

Good night!

Yippee!!

On other writing fronts, I've finally come up with a character name for one of my main characters. He's a singer/songwriter touring with my main character's sister, who's also a singer. The singing sister now is the only one I need to come up with a name for, and it's got to fit with their last name, which is Bennett. Ava is the main character, and her sister's name is blank right now. I'll come up with something.

Found "That Thing You Do!", the special edition, on DVD at Best Buy the other day. That is absolutely one of my favorite movies. It makes me laugh AND cry. It's so awesome to have that one in my collection now. I've had the soundtrack for like, five years and only a copy of the movie on VHS, and now, a DVD. Yay!

Off to be anxious for Miami in an hour and 45 minutes. I've got popcorn and my bright pink CSI: Miami pillow that my best friend [livejournal.com profile] bookofdays gave me.

Good night!

Yippee!!

It's Miami night! Wheeee! I've been waiting very impatiently for this night for a while now. Eeeeee! The red-haired boyfriend is back on my TV in two hours and 8 minutes. Meep. So excited. I may or may not be bouncing.

I've been very moody the last day or so. Work is stressful and emotional right now. I cried a lot yesterday (and it wasn't just because I made the mistake of watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition last night either). I hate feeling the way I do right now, but I also know everyone has these moments where you just want to break down, cry, and be mad for awhile. I just don't understand why certain people that I care about can't let me just be mad for a bit. Maybe I don't want comfort or to talk about it, and yet I get made to. It's frustrating. Today was better, despite a growing work situation. The crazy co-worker is just that--crazy. And I mean literally. I fully believe she is insane. [livejournal.com profile] brightillusions can back me up on that. Sheesh. But hopewfully that whole thing will be taken care of very soon.

Hiring for my store is going well. I have three interviews lined up tomorrow, and two inductions in the next two days, so things are going well. The big signs are up at the store, and I need to go take some more photos. If I get a chance, I'll post the photos of the construction somewhere along the line.

I'm utterly addicted to Pat Monahan's solo album. "Last of Seven" is dynamite. I'm a very proud fan. The songs are fantastic, and there isn't one I don't like. "Pirate On The Run", "Ripple In The Water" and "Always Midnight" are my favorites, though. "Her Eyes" is so another version of Meet Virginia, and it makes me laugh.

I've been puttering on my Reasons Why 'verse again lately. I'm in the middle of writing college!Tony and Hannah at Christmastime at her family's home in Michigan. (I'm still debating if that is where she is from. I wanted somewhere cold and snowy for the winter, but we'll see if I change that or not). I need to go through the ledger my mom gave me and see what other fics I can play with. I still want to write one when Tony tells Hannah he loves her for the first time, and one when Tony gets hurt playing football. I wrote a snippet not long ago set in Season 1 when Kate meets Hannah for the first time. I need to finish that one, because she wonders how they even get along. Heh. It makes me smile.

If I had enough energy to rant about freakin' crazy liars who lie, I would. But I don't. All I can say is that karma is going to hit someone hard soon, and it's going to be immensely ugly. And I'm going to laugh. A lot. Is it September yet?

Anyway. Just signed up for the June round at [livejournal.com profile] fic_variations, and look forward to channeling my muse this month for my NCIS claim. I'm going to write three Tony/Hannah fics this month, dang it. I need to establish my Reasons Why 'verse a bit more. I rather like the prompt too, but I'm going to need to look up all the definitions I can for it. I have obne plot already, but I need two more. Heh. I almost signed up with another claim too, but maybe I'll play with that one for July. We'll see. I need to play with [livejournal.com profile] pdficchallenge too, and come up with some new ideas and prompts there too. Maybe something during this long summer hiatus!

Am addicted to music right now. The mom bought The Village Sessions by John Mayer on iTunes last week and it so amazing. He's absolutely brilliant. 10 days until the concert! Eeee! Which means 17 days until Keith Urban! Am also addicted to the new Maroon 5 album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long. Awesome, awesome CD. Adam and the guys sound fantastic and the songs are excellent. Definitely my favorite album right now.

Work is--work. I'm going to be in San Jose in a week or so with Rach to help run an event at another store, and then in two weeks or so, we'll be headed back up there for a meeting. She's going to persuade them to let me come along, even if I am not officially promoted by then, because it's for a new clocking system that I'll need to be proficient in in order to train my incoming staff on it as well! So yeah, doing some traveling this month, with some other good things hopefully happening in June as well.

Randomly, I have discovered an odd thing for index cards. I have sticky ones, lines ones, blank ones, colored ones, etc. It's very odd. I have no idea what I am going to do with them all, but hey. I have them if I need them. Heh.

Have tomorrow off, thank goodness. The parents and I are going to go see PotC 3, woohoo! Plus, I'm sitting down and writing. Seriously. I have to.

I go to bed now. Am exhausted from the weird that was the last two days.

Good night.
