So! It's been quite a week. :D; Tuesday and Wednesday was Magic Kingdom
and Epcot (and Downtown Disney) with Jennie
, which was tons of fun despite the crappy weather on Wednesday. We nonetheless managed to save the world from Duff Killigan and the Killer Bebes and Señor Senior Senior and son. (I gotta admit, that Kim Possible thing at Epcot is fantastic~) Also, Space Mountain is open again! They redid the line area with games to play, and now they have a digital projector, but that's really mostly it. Still we went on it three times despite the 70-minute wait each time. Totally worth it. :D Oh, Space Mountain, how I missed you!
Thursday was a do-absolutely-nothing day; there was some approximation of Thanksgiving dinner (chicken casserole, okay, but there was stuffing and mashed potatoes and corn and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie! And strawberries and Jell-O XD;) and HSM3. This morning I dropped her off at the airport and bummed around Downtown Disney a bit before picking up some tree-decorating stuff at Target (it was kinda scary in there, but not as bad as it could have been, thank you empty-for-Thanksgiving college town) and... uh. Running, and Alien Swarm because I didn't get to see it before! Is it sad that one of the highlights of watching that was the new version of the PJO trailer? XD;; ::fail:: It was actually pretty good, though - not as horrific as I was expecting. I still think Kevin needs to be more buff, though. Oh, but CN? I saw what you did there, with Gwen's last outfit. Cute.
Oh, also, I have now seen The Guild. You may rejoice. XD; I could not stop watching it. I think Valerie knew that would be the case, though. ;D I perhaps will need a my gaming icon back, now that a chunk of the nerdiest people in the department have started up a game. Also, I require an AD&D player's handbook. (Off to Amazon...) And, following tradition,
Kai did something stupid right off the bat that got him out of commission for most of the first fight. But! I took out a goblin all by myself! With my giant sword. :D Too bad second edition doesn't have greatswords...
And lastly, I've been working on the next chapter of my PJO fic (finally!), but anytime you get Percy and Hades in the same room, things do Not Go Well. Nor do they go According To Plan, apparently, thanks guys. -_-; It's like, I don't know, getting The Monarch and Doctor Venture to have a nice little serious chat. Only I gotta admit, Percy's cooler than Doc. And, er. I suppose Hades is cooler than The Monarch, too. Y'know. XD; At least I think I have the end bit plotted out, even with my horribly crazy last-minute addition to the storyline. I can only hope it's not going too far. >>; Anyone who knows Nathan will be relieved that I will not be going with his horribly depressing suggestion, at least? XD;
Oh, and because it sounds neat! A meme! ( I actually need to fill this out for greenconverses
; I've been meaning to but I don't think I'll have the brainpower until tomorrow. But I will! I swear!) Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
Lastly (for real this time), I shall leave you with tree-topper Square Pig
. Because, why not?
