Easter 2022

After several hectic weeks at work, I happily slept in on Friday and eased into the day. Following that, I got a lot of decluttering done, some knitting, rehomed my books in a reorganized office space, repotted all my plants, wrote a ritual for the full moon, watched several episodes of Supergirl, paid a parking ticket, and made a lovely dinner of top sirloin with rapini and seasoned creamer potatoes. 

Saturday was a mix of decluttering, chores, and was capped off with a little full moon ritual and some homemade lemon wine a friend gifted me. 

Sunday was a very chill day. I did a lot of relaxing. I gamed and watched more Supergirl. I'm now close to finished Season 6. I also tried to do my drawing homework, but the assignment is a special kind of collage using tape to transfer an image and my tape isn't doing what it's supposed to, so I'm stuck there.

Today, I was an extra in Lee Demarbre's Enter the Drag Dragon. This was a returning role. In the summer, I was an extra in a fight scene with two of my dear friends. Today's scene was the final scene of the movie. Sadly, I went alone as my friends were recovering from Covid and just needed a day or so to meet the number of days after feeling well to ensure everyone would be safe around them. As I moved around the theatre a bit, I don't know where I'll be in the end, but I can't wait to see it!

My takeaway from the filming today was that drones are actually rather creepy. The sound they make is an odd frequency that is almost like a bee hive. Couple that with how easily they could be used to spy on someone and I felt creeped out by it. They're a wonderful tool for filming though.

But today actually began with me writing novel notes out at 5:15 A.M. because my brain decided it finally knew how to add a particular character arc. Now, I just need to find the exact place to do it.

I'm currently waiting on one more piece to finish reorganizing my office. It's supposed to arrive on Wednesday, but Canada Post is saying it might be late. I'm quite frustrated by the shipping options here as my last package went to the wrong building and I got lucky that furniture legs aren't something most people want to keep. I got extra lucky because it was a kind Asian man who walked my package over to my building rather than sending it back. So it did go awry, but turned out OK in the end.

I'm hoping the items I'm waiting on now don't get too delayed. Several of them form part of a goth outfit for an event at month's end. And there are much larger and taller furniture legs in there for the last piece of my office reorg.

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
