stellawind: The Plaza After Rain - Painted by Paul Cornoyer c.1910 (Default)
(it's been a while since i posted on not private. there are reasons, which friends who also know me in RL know. if you want to know more, hit me up on IM or something)

So, I like reading other people's blogs. Even (or perhaps especially) people I've never met or only met once or twice. As time goes by, and the words flow across the screen, I get to know them. Dreams, weaknesses, fears, elation, and loss all in 12pt font in my little bedroom. Maybe I'll never met these people, but I still have a personal interest in their lives. I'm sad when they slowly stop posting as often or switch to a platform I don't use.

But what I'm trying to say at this midnight hour, is that I admire them. I adore the reams of their lives they record and share, the shifts in writing styles from morning, noon, and late at night. To me, looking at these people is like looking at facets of humanity.

Or something. Have I mentioned that it's way past my bedtime? Hence the florid prose. It's hard to stop and judge what looks good when I get tired.

So what I'm leading up to, is that I've been inspired by cesperanza and astolat's 30 day journaling thing. So I'm going to try it. This might be the third or forth time I've decided to do something like this (and the the fact I'm doing it half asleep might not be good either), but I'll never be able to do anything if I didn't keep trying.

So yeah.

Today, I went to the farmer's market, and bought lots of yummy things. I'm also getting worried by how much I've been enjoying microgreens. They're expensive, but oh so tasty, and I indifferent enough to most leafy greens that any type of green I do like should be added to my diet. Maybe I should try growing them myself too? idk

Also, I got my pre-order of Vienna Teng's latest album today. There's a stream of it here you can listen to (legally!). It's a more message oriented than her previous albums and her sound has changed a little, as musicians tend to do. I wish there was a little more in the way of piano ballads, but I like it. Especially the first song, Level Up.  

Ah, fandom wise? I'm back into FFVII, for the first time in a few years. So far I'm planning to make a moogle dog coat (my Mae-dog needs something for Halloween!) and have been poking at fics.

 Well, day 2 of 30. 

Today was my dog Mae's birthday! The noodle-face is two years old today. I celebrated it by not putting her in doggie-jail (aka, her crate, which she has due to torn up carpet by the door when I've been gone). And also not doing any errands. *\o/* That said, the big one was returning a hideously expensive set of scissors (org. $50+ but $35 with coupon, and that don't even work that well), and buying more fabric. I think I can live. Mae got a (dog) cupcake too. It was adorbs. 

I also did dishes. And baked! I made loose crostata with raspberry filling. It was very yummy, and only one piece is left.

A very significant portion of the day was spent listening to Vienna Teng's new CD. Songs are growing on me, as they do. I'm just waiting for a connection to be made in my writing back-brain. Vienna has always provided a good selection for my writing music. 

I've got to say, I'm really enjoying this fall weather. I'm looking forward to drinking more hot tea now. 

Also, if anyone (mostly looking at fateofshadow here, but anyone else too) wants to toss me a writing prompt, go for it. I'm planning to do a post 10 fics in 10 days thing, and I need to start building up for that.
