borealgrove: Black Widow looking disgruntled against a bold lettered background (Black Widow)
I've got a pile of messages to respond to, but I set them aside over the weekend in favour of milking the hell out of a sudden surge of motivation. Aside from some celebrating of Canada Day on Friday and Saturday, I spent the rest of my long weekend sitting at my computer and chipping away at chapter 12 of FS (currently editing and picking at one last scene). I'm trying to tie that up so that I can really focus on my two upcoming challenge fics for the rest of the month (though I have made a little headway already in both).

I spent Friday evening at my parents', with a gaggle of relatives from the Maritimes showing up with a ton of booze and gaudy red-and-white decorations. Basically, my father was barbequeing in a lobster-print apron and a red-and-white clown wig before any real drinking happened. Quite the crowd, they are. Then on Saturday we headed out to brave the crowds celebrating Canada's 150th birthday and after waiting for almost two hours in the rain (the show was cancelled twice before it finally went on lol), I got to see Mother Mother for the second time this year!

I have to admit... their performance this time (maybe because they were playing such a high-profile gig?) was a little lacking. The energy was there, but I feel like they were more concerned with singing as loudly as they could than with singing as best they could. During Hay Loft and The Stand the singing was a lot more normal, but the rest of the songs had some awkward near-screaming parts. I've seen them enough times to know what they sound like at their best, so I'll just look forward to their next solo gig :p

Still danced my butt off and mouthed most of the words!

I suppose the only other thing to note is that I got back on Warframe yesterday afternoon after several months of hiatus -- the new Harrow quest was both extremely creepy and enjoyable to play, and was the main reason for coming back. I played a little this evening as well (emphasis on little). It all made me feel a little sad about not going to Tennocon this year, but it just wasn't convenient enough for us to get to London this year--maybe the next, if we still enjoy playing the game to a big enough extent!

And now, back to chapter 12. I need to get this donnnnnnne!
borealgrove: (Through to Winter)
Oh, what a weekend I had...



First, on Friday, DE decided to dump a brand new Warframe on us. Which meant I had to put on my wide-brimmed hat and go farming. Obviously. They dumped a whole lot of other great content on us too, which did not help my resolve to be good and concentrate on being productive. I ended my night by ragequitting after I "completed" the new quest and it bugged out before I could get my reward. I re-did it in the morning, after I had slept off the volcanic ire that my partner was trying very hard not to find hilarious.

Butt.

Saturday we went bouldering. Ho boy. I should mention I'm afraid of heights. I went once before, and enjoyed myself, but I could only really climb sideways and managed to get my feet maybe one metre off the floor--if that. I did better this time, but had to work my way up to it (and creepily stand around waiting for most of the other climbers to leave the space). I should mention I also don't really like people. I'm a gem. We spent the day with a couple of friends we hadn't seen in a while, and aside from bouldering, also went out for ramen, and then to a brand-new cafe for some matcha desserts. All in all, a great time.


And today? Why, I've done a lot of knitting and watched three episodes of Merlin--and for some reason in the middle of the second one decided to make chocolate-chip pumpkin bread. For... reasons? Tastiness? I started at nine-thirty pm... and it's now eleven pm... just... why? Why do I make these life choices?

It smells really freakin good though. I'm gonna go have a slice.
