Last night I was terribly naughty and skipped training. It was for work reasons, in my defence. And by work, I totally mean play. I was out at the Chiseries reading last night night, filming the event for Silver Stag Entertainment.
The readings were fabulous! I managed to capture all of the first.
And then my camera frizzed. And my back up frizzed and now I have patchy footage of both the wonderfully entertaining hat story duel, and the final story... which was spectacular, by the way!
I'm furious and sad and in need of coffee this morning to make things better. Only I can't have coffee this morning, because construction at the office means that the kitchen is out of bounds right now. I can't make a pot.
I hate everything.
In happier news, I will be reviewing Welsh lesson three. With luck it'll be easier than the first time, which nearly exploded my brain. We are introduced to mutations during this lesson... and then told not to worry about it. Of course I'm worried about it! I'm a barely contained perfectionist that must get 100% on every exam ever. At least I was in High School. University rescued me from perfectionist hell.
Except about the things I really care about. You should have seen me work on Celtic Studies everything. I adored it and it didn't feel like work. It was just really intensely interesting stuff that I was doing for credit.
I digress. The point is, my perfectionist tendencies are back, and I must get this lesson perfectly before I move on. So... yeah. This morning will be spent speaking Welsh.
More on the Welsh thing... sorry if it bores you.... it excites me. I've been listening to BBC Radio Cymru (BBC's Welsh language radio) online, and while I understood very little, the words I had learnt to date popped up like crazy and I didn't need to think on their translation to know what they meant. This pleased me.
After Welsh it back to writing, because my brain doesn't get a break today. I didn't write at all yesterday because I was editing together a trailer for Nights at the Round Table (Silver Stag's video podcast) which will be shown at this weekend's Serenity Charity Screening event held by the Ottawa Browncoats. The event details are HERE, and you should go. It's a fun event.
If I'm very lucky, I'll get to my 3 000 word goal. Monday I managed only 2 000, so I'm not overly hopeful. Still writing even three words is better than writing none, so I can feel relatively pleased to get that many words down. I won't be too upset with myself if I don't hit my goal, is what I'm saying.
Right, I have to go. Have a great day all.
