Oft have I caught, upon a fitful breeze,Fragments of far-off melodies,With ear not coveting the whole,A part so charmed the pensive soul.While a dark storm before my sightWas yielding, on a mountain heightLoose vapours have I watched, that wonPrismatic colours from the sun— William Wordsworth (1770

Had a long phone conversation with Saalon last night, about writing among other things. We agreed that we’re both kind of scared about fiction writing right now. It’s like we don’t know exactly how to approach things. We’re trying to find our voice, and trying to get back into writing after a (comparatively) long hiatus. I’ve decided that I what I need to do is […]

It was back to work today after a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. I am still a little angry at myself over yesterday afternoon, though: I decided to watch afternoon cartoons, and ended up watching TV for a good seven hours. It’s amazing how easy it is to get sucked in by the television. Or the Great Glass Teat, as AICN‘s Moriarty likes to call it. However, I used the opportunity to watch some of The 1900 House, a show […]

Just finished an excellent book named Tommy and Me by Ben Stein. Check out my review on my Read Books page. Saalon came down with some sort of nasty cold/flu combination, and thus didn’t drive here for the weekend. It worked out well, though; I’ve gotten a lot of things done, and he can come in two weeks. Even better, last night we cooked up the idea of Brennen coming too. […]

I was about to excuse my lack of updates by saying that nothing really interesting has happened lately, but whenever I say that I end up having a monster update describing all sorts of things. Nothing interesting has happened in my side garden, except that I bought that portable fireplace/grill through the internet, and it arrived on Tuesday. The fireplace, not the internet. It looks good, too. We put one of those store-bought […]

Well, today was devoted mostly to chores. My parents are still away, which has been pleasant. Not that I dislike their company; far from it. Rather, it’s nice to just be alone and have to take care of onesself. No interruptions (or very few). I ran out to Home Depot around noon, then stopped in at a nearby Friendly’s for lunch. Big mistake. Turns out they were having a spot […]

My parents are away this weekend, going up for my cousin’s graduation. I would have gone, too, but somebody has to take care of the dogs…. The morning was spent by first driving up to a craft store and asking them to frame a Washu and Tenchi cel that I won on eBay (picture forthcoming), plus deposit some checks. Unfortunately, the craft store doesn’t open until 9:00 on Saturdays, and I got there at 8:30, so I walked […]

Eeek. Been awhile, hasn’t it? I’ve watched the first four episodes of the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. This thing is, in a word, amazing. I’ll post a full-scale review later on; suffice to say that it’s a wonderful, moving, exciting series. Those episodes just came out on DVD; if anime catches your eye at all, check out Eva. I also bought and watched a collection of direct-to-video episodes […]
