So, today, thanks to the generosity of my good friend É.D, I walked into work this morning wishing I was wearing armour and fur... again. Three guesses as to what I was listening to on the way in. The title of today's post should give it away to anyone who knows me well.
If that doesn't give it away, the image on the embedded YouTube video below should. If it doesn't... I don't know that I can help you. Speaking of embedded YouTube videos, how about you click the play button on the one below, so we can all share in the epicness?
Seriously, though, I had a really epic walk into work this morning. Naturally my mind worked overtime and I may have come up with a story idea set in the world of Skyrim. Video game fan fiction. I think I've taken my obsession with this game to a special new level.
Anyway, all of this to say thank you to É.D. for my especially enjoyable walk into work today.
This weekend proved especially busy. Saturday I filmed episodes of Nights at the Round Table for Silver Stag Entertainment, and immediately followed that with the beginning of a game of Gurps. Despite having the orienteering session, I still have no idea what I'm doing, but I have a fair idea of who my character is and what she's about.
Sunday I had a bit of a mixed day. I had to go down town to pick up a bag I left on the set of Saturday's filming, go grocery shopping, then hustle it back to Ottawa South to meet with friends for their The Hobbit marathon party. It was awesome. We watched both extended editions of the two films, and then I watched on as they party booked tickets to go see the next one.
I'm so excited for that movie.
It really was wonderful to sit and watch the films, both stressful and relaxing and also hilarious... especially when three members of the audience shushed the characters on screen. It's funny how life has led me to some of the most wonderful people I know after languishing so long with some of the most horrid people I hope to ever meet.
Life is odd.
Today it is a return to my usual routine. Welsh lessons this morning, followed by lunch, followed by editing. I went through the Prologue and the first chapter of Human on Thursday. The story is, thus far, not as terrible as I imagined it was. That's something. I'm feeling a little more optimistic about this story now. Of course, that might just be the music speaking. Epic music will always put me in a grand mood.
Right, I should get on with my Welsh. And I shall... after I listen to the song once more. Or a few more times. Or for the rest of the day...
