nobody’s home

Nobody in the war room yet, attempting to keep myself honest by posting stats. going NOW.

war #1: 446
(between wars: AHAHAHHA HA HA HA i just figured out how to get the characters where they belong and continue to screw things up for them, yay!)
war #2: 386 + notes
war #3: 494, and now it’s lunchtime & I have a fellow warrior, so enough of this nonsense :)

workful day

I may have to do that morning post of lonely little word wars every day, as it was unexpectedly successful today. Afternoons are easier, as morning comes on in America, so people start turning up. Anyway, 3K today, a whole chapter, which was the goal. Yay.

Ted nearly kissed another woman at the gym this morning. *laughs* A woman came in a couple steps behind us, and got into the sign-in line before me, but Ted hadn’t seen her. So he signed in and turned around to kiss me, except there was a much shorter blonde woman there instead. Fortunately he wasn’t moving fast enough to plant one on her before he realized there was something wrong, but it was pretty darned funny. :)

Good swim this morning, unexpectedly. One of those rare and pleasant days where I hit the zone as soon as I hit the water, so there was no lactic acid burn in the triceps, and I did my 1200 meters without a break. So that was nice.

Ted upgraded our Vista system to Windows 7, a process which seems to have gone flawlessly in very little time. I have a great raging hatred for the new alt-tab selection process and how it fades out windows, but otherwise it seems okay. At least SimpleMU* runs properly on it.

I should be doing copyedits, but I’m not.

The Road Home: miles to Isengard: 51.9
