smirking half-hawk

update

I think I may be starting to get neeuqdrazil's cold. I made 3 litres of burningly strong ginger tea last night, and will be carrying it around with me to kill the cold cooties before they can get comfy. Sickness is not an option. I think I may add some black peppercorns to my next batch of tea - I've been adding new spices each time. The cardamom pods seem to have made a difference, though I think I needed more citrus.

I've been noodling about clothes again. I have the fabric and general idea for a few items of clothing that I've been intending to make. However, I don't really have the ability to sew well enough to actually make the stuff I'm thinking of. So, when I have the money, I am thinking about getting some custom work done somewhere in town. I spent some time last night sketching out outfits. I think I might dress up a little tonight, just for the sake of doing so.

It has taken me all week, but I think I have finally shaken of the Grumpmas blues. I've switched over to my preferred nocturnal cycle (which is going to kick my ass when I go back to work), and am getting creative itches in the back of my head. I'm giving some thought to finally doing something with mr_deth. Also, there are several Things In Jars that I want to make. I should, however, really spend 4-5 hours before I go back to work, doing filing, since keeping the paper records for everything for the past two years is probably not the brightest of ideas.

Resolution review

Last year I made a number of resolutions for 2005. Now that the year is done, I'm reviewing these to see how well I've done.


  1. Role play at least once a month Definitely did not pull this one off. The Hamilton gaming crew has pretty much disintegrated. If I want to game more, I think I'm going to need to find more people to game with. Anyone local want to play Amber, WoD, or any of the Tri Stat games? The other side of it, of course, is that I suspect I don't have enough time to guarantee being able to play at a set time each month.

  2. Go out clubbing at least once a month I've managed this one - I've been dancing more in 2005 than I have since I lived in KW in 97-98.

  3. Read one "serious" book for every three fluff books Another success. It slowed my reading down quite a bit, but I've been learning a lot more this way.

  4. Get the fucking car Done.

  5. More goth clothes This year saw an increase in lower body coverings in the monkey wardrobe.

  6. Wear goth clothes more often Moderate amounts of success, here.



Some time in the next week, I'll come up with some for next year. Or, perhaps not.
