...productive morning?  
I've cleaned my desk and gotten Petite halfway to 27th level. Neither of those things is really a sign of a productive morning (although wow, the clean desk makes me feel better).

I'm seriously considering taking a page from tersa's book and not logging onto the intarweb-connected computer until 5pm daily or something. Given how many hours ahead of most of the people I talk to regularly I am anyway, this would make absolutely no difference to anyone but me. :)

I've discovered local (to Cobh) yoga classes. Beginning classes held four nights a week, in fact. One starts to cease to have an excuse, doesn't one? And yesterday at the store Ted came across flyers for traditional Irish dance classes for adults (don't remember if it's step or set dancing) held on Monday nights... There are about four other things, too, that I feel like I ought to make an attempt to do (swimming, photography club, and going to the gym among them), but I'd be pretty pleased with myself if I just got out to do *one* thing. :)

Yeah. Must put myself on a schedule, mostly. Which, y'know, with PCon this weekend is so likely to happen. :)

Speaking of PCon,
Saturday:
12:00 – 13:00 There Be Dragons
There have been many tales of Dragons over the years, but what is it about the mythical dragon that is so alluring?

16:00 – 17:00 Looking out for a Hero
There is an increase in tales of emerging superheroes. But in reality, would the world accept them, or would they be hunted down and caged (or worse)?

17:00 – 18:00 Lifestyles of the Rich and Supernatural
Vampires have been a popular trend in romance for a long time, but shapechangers, minor gods, superheroes, ghosts, and magical time travellers are catching up. Is it the strangeness we like, or the power?

Sunday:
10:00 – 11:00 Bad guys and Fan Mail
In many stories it's the bad guys that the women fall for. OK, maybe Sauron didn't get many fans, but other than that, why is it that the bad guys get all the women fans falling for them?

13:00 – 14:00 Blogs
Many people, including writers, keep on-Line blogs such as LiveJournal. But for professional writers is it a waste of time, or a useful tool for keeping in contact and research?

15:00 – 16:00 How to put together a graphic novel
What are the elements required for budding graphic novelists when putting their novel together.


Looking forward to it. *beam*

Ulp! PCon this weekend? Where did the time go?

Are you bringing Ted along, or does he get time off for bad good behaviour?
kitmizkit on March 5th, 2007 12:36 pm (UTC)
PCon this very weekend! And Ted will be along, indeed!

Have you done yoga before, or is this just something you've wanted to try for a while? *is curious having just started back into it*

*sighs* I miss Irish dance. It was so much fun, but my knees haven't been able to handle it since I busted them.

Have fun at PCon!

I've done a class here and there. Nothing meaningful, but no one around here seems to have adult dance classes like tap or jazz, so you take what you can get. :)

Hey! Maybe I should move there and offer some!

My training would get some use then...

Don't know if Ireland could handle both of us. :)

Bad guys and Fan Mail?

Sauron gets no fangirls because he's got the "I ain't got no body" blues!


kitmizkit on March 5th, 2007 09:16 pm (UTC)
That, and he badly needs some Visine. :)

Yay for Petite - I haven't played Huntress of Prey in forever, you'll catch up to me in no time. She's still at 35th. Mal would love to have another playdate with Chrome btw, and Earl Grey would like to meet her too.
kitmizkit on March 5th, 2007 09:15 pm (UTC)
Maybe next week! :)
hawkwing_lb on March 5th, 2007 09:07 pm (UTC)
Maybe you'll let me buy you a drink this weekend, if you have a minute or two free on Saturday? :)
kitmizkit on March 5th, 2007 09:14 pm (UTC)
That'd be awesome. :) And, er, I'll bring you the copy of WINTER MOON I never sent... O.O
hawkwing_lb on March 5th, 2007 09:18 pm (UTC)
Heh, no worries. Do you know when you'd have time?
kitmizkit on March 5th, 2007 09:25 pm (UTC)
*looks at my schedule* Well, unless you propose to start drinking before noon, and given that I'm planning to have dinner with people that evening, I'd say between 1 and 4 would be best. :)
hawkwing_lb on March 5th, 2007 09:28 pm (UTC)
About 3, then? The sun should be far enough over the yardarm by then, I imagine. :)
