You know it: I was out this afternoon taking advantage of the first truly clear, sunny sky we've had all summer. I was absolutely stuck on a section of my HP Drizzle fic this morning, but about ten minutes ago, I finally finished the paragraph that was giving me grief. Victory! Not that I'm anywhere near finished, but at least the way is somewhat clearer now. I also did something unusual this morning, in that I actually bounced the ideas for the latter half of the fic off my partner. I'm normally tight-lipped about all story plot with absolutely everyone, but this one was frustrating me so much that I just wanted a completely objective opinion (which brought with it a rigorous effort to poke holes in the logic of the plot). I've gotta say... it was kind of nice.

I'm sitting in the dark listening to Phantogram's You Don't Get Me High Anymore on repeat and drinking in all those luxuriously disaffected vibes. As long as I don't think too hard about those deadlines, I'll be okay. :p



My day out today went something like this: squeezed into tightly-packed crowds (worse than Canada Day) to see the incredible spectacle that is La Machine, we then passed through a Chapters so my partner could pick up a book on industrial design that he'd ordered, and went on towards another festival happening somewhere else in the city (stopping into several interesting-looking stores along the way), only to balk at the overpriced foods being offered there (not that they didn't look delicious--I gave up grilled eel, man!), and go into a bubble tea shop to unwind, which we left in order to go home. At home, I made myself okonomiyaki (I make it from scratch, right down to grating the hilariously slimy nagaimo) and watched two episodes of Shameless, because I was feeling indulgent and decided not to stop at one. And now I'm here.

Writing this.

When I should be writing that other thing.

Edit: My teeny weeny cactus is trying to bloom and this morning I cried a tiny, proud tear. He's trying so hard. He just wants to be pretty. I support you little guy. ♥

Sounds like a fun day! Hurrah for progress on your fic! You've got a few weeks yet before the drizzle deadline, so no stress! You'll do it!

Omg, nagaimo. I think tororo is one of my least favourite Japanese foods. I had it with soba the first time I went to Japan. Flavour was great. But omg, that shit is like eating snot. I couldn't handle it. I didn't realise there was nagaimo in okonomiyaki. Not that I'm a giant fan of that either, lol. I mean, I'll eat it and have had it a bunch of times (both Osaka and Hiroshima styles), but overall I find it too heavy. But I commend you on making it from scratch! Impressive :)
