Passed 5k on my Big Bang, once I can figure out how to manage my time right over here I think I should be able to get this done in time.
Have what was a few days ago the latest copy of Mel's Big Bang, and, man I kinda hate all of you who are already at or past 20k already. Mel, the turn-around is gonna be a few more days because, wow, I'm getting back into the swing of this and I have lots of reactions. :P
Chopin ate the Caps Lock and A keys off Sam so I have a keyboard hooked up to him right now. It's still V awkward because the keys are totally different than a laptop keyboard. Also, I keep clicking on the space bar or dragging my fingers over nothing because I'm used to the touchpad being right there and now it's not.
I went to the Geek Squad (got my fingers caught in a window) because I thought I'd be able to just get the keys popped back in. But the Geek there told me I'd have to spend fifty or sixty bucks on a new keyboard and then eighty bucks getting it installed.
I'm getting a job soon (getting my brace fixed on Friday, hopefully!) so I'm gonna try and figure out which will be cheaper; fixing all the things wrong with Sam (missing screws, new keyboard, non-working DVD-ROM drive, loose screen) or just buying a new Sam.
What I really need to do is make a list right now of all the things I need/want to get and how much they'll cost, that way once I'm making money I'll know how much to put aside for what and what order to get things in (plane tickets for WinCon being first, of course, as soon as me and Chelsea can figure out our flight plan).
Also? In fannish news, as I'm sure you've all heard, Jared and Sandy are engaged! I'm a J2 tinhat but apparently I'm a V bad tinhat because I am SO HAPPY for the two of them. And this is where I go all Jewish mother and start asking when they're gonna give us all adorable, awkward-sized babies to coo at.
I actually feel pretty calm now. It's been a while since that happened.
And? Last night I made brownies, today so far I've; vacuumed the living room, cleaned my room, made blueberry muffins and just now made tuna noodle casserole for dinner.
And? Actually? My big worry for Big Bang right now is how much I'm gonna be adding after the first draft. Because of my 5,271 words written 3,349 are before the plot actually starts.
P.S. Jensen and Jason were bestest roommates all through S1 and Chad almost got tossed from Steve's because Creation thought he was bootlegging with his videophone. AND JENSEN'S DADDY IS THE VOICE OF WHATABURGER,YO.
HAI GUYS, AH MISSED YOU! ♥
