So I ran up to help my brother e-file, and when he was done he started playing "Assassin's Creed II", which he just got today after his girlfriend won $3000 at the local casino and bought it for him. (Everybody else has all the luck, I swear to God.)
Anyway, I'm standing there listening to the voice of one character and said, "She sounds familiar." Another sentence later, and I said, "I think that's Kristen Bell." I went over to his computer to check and ding, ding, ding! I was right. :D
I'm telling you guys, I'm fucking accomplished
I also volunteered to give my great-aunt "internet lessons" when she gets hooked up to it shortly. I have a lot more faith that she'll pick it up than my great-uncle, who spent twenty minutes today staring at me in awe as I torrented Bejeweled 2 Deluxe and set it up on his computer. My great-aunt's a bit more of a tech geek anyway, or at the very least more of a gamer, so I already foresee her becoming totally hooked on it and spending all day playing on Yahoo Games until she completely loses track of time and falls asleep at her computer desk.
Also, is it weird that I'm currently talking more with my old high school boyfriend now on Facebook than with anyone else? And that he changed his default photo to a picture of Johnny Depp with glasses and goatee and I honestly couldn't tell the difference when I first saw it? (To be fair, I think even he would admit he is no Johnny Depp. He is, however, someone who's always been very cute, and broadening up a bit and slapping on some facial hair does him wonders.)
Okay, back to editing. I had a bit of an epiphany before where I was like, "FUCK IT,
WE'LL DO IT LIVE!
I'LL JUST EDIT!" Seriously, trying to catch up to my word count expectations for January is just not going to happen tonight, and five chapters -- while daunting considering I've gone back to editing them on paper to make sure I'm catching it all -- is the one major hurdle I really want to get over on my to-do list.
That said:( Cutting word meters for space )
Year-to-date GYWO total:
This time last year, I had about 18k already. Another reason to get these five more chapters edited and out of the way, so that I can spend the rest of the week getting into a writing habit again.
