Organized like a Mongol horde )

And if you don't think a Mongol horde is organized YOU try getting together a bunch of warriors and storming all over a huge swath of land on horseback against potentially superior numbers and making it work for you.

Notes from a weekend of aggressive productivity:

* In order to combat increasing flail of I will never be able to read and write this, do each vocab section by writing down the words, attempting to transliterate them letter to letter, then listening to them and matching up the transliteration with what's being heard. It does, in fact, help. Maybe do it more organized next time, though.

(Also the sketchpad is slowly running out, maybe consider getting a couple reams of that eco paper.)

I am not, in fact, as bad at Arabic as I think I am. I do need to memorize the difference between giim, haa, and khaa better, but other than that the dictation part wasn't nearly that bad. Also, dictation might help the Hindi.

I did manage to, while checking the new keys to figure out which one was which for deadbolt and knob, pick up Little Bit and cuddle her and remind her that we're okay and know how to handle a cat. Just in case. I don't think she's been avoiding us because she's scared, I think she's been avoiding us because letting humans pet her would ruin her street cat cred or something. Possibly also because it's fucking hot and sticky out here human and you want to cuddle, are you high? Here, I will shed on you, that'll teach you.

* I really need to make a regular day of it for cutting the ailanthus, probably every other week, so it doesn't turn into a big thing like this that I have to then haul branch by branch out to the back greenery pile. I don't know why I haven't stuck this on Habitica before, which is my main place for remembering do this on this day, but I should.

Moment of panic when we thought, suddenly, that our refrigerator was broken when it skyrocketed to 45 degrees F internal temperature. No, it turns out it's not broken, it just has a weird design flaw ... okay, it might be not working properly, but it's not broken in that we can't use it. Apparently the fridge compartment needs to be 8 degrees warmer than the freezer compartment, so when we tried to jack up the freezer above fucking freezing solid as a rock, well, the fridge compartment went up too.

It wasn't that bad a weekend, but the two hour headache on Sunday robbed me of a lot of editing and arranging things time. That was not at all what I'd planned, and now I have to triage the most urgent tasks and figure out what to get done and argh. Ugh and double ugh and argh. Oh well.
kittydesade: (jane gets no nice things)
Gaeilge )

Okay, I'm not sure if I'm stick, comma, still, or sick, comma, again. What I really want to do is just curl up and watch Warm Bodies because oh my god this is the funniest fucking movie ever. Instead I went to work, and now I'm zombieing around with my body too cold, my nose too runny, my head too spaced, and definitely feeling sick.

Spent last night sneezing and sort of doing edits on Gods and Monsters, which thankfully did get finished today. If I'm very lucky I'll be able to finish a lot of writing tasks today, and on time to do the sewing ones this evening. Thus, this list is for my own edification and because I have a brain that is covered in ick right now.

List )

Yeah, I wish I had more things interesting for you, but I'm just too sick to process thoughts right now. Warm Bodies was hilarious. Go see it.
