Managed to get back to town even with the slight blizzard outside. Spent the weekend shacked up inside and having a surprisingly pleasant family time. I think the parents are mellowing in old age.^^ All was good except Lilli (my first cat) kept growling at me when I tried to pet her. She doesn't like Nekku being there that much. *sigh*
And despite what mum had said earlier, I
ended up doing the English Christmas cake she had the recipe for even after she'd said before she'd do it all by herself. (Happened the last time we had a Christmas cake, too...) But it wasn't such a hassle. I didn't get to eat much of the dough though as the recipe had rum and I don't like the taste or the smell of it (like I don't most alcohol...) I did end up tasting and it wasn't that
bad but I still find it a bit unfair that while I ended up making it I'll hardly end up eating it at all... *pouts*
Got my writing for Saturday done before I left yesterday and struggled through what I did today. Which is odd since the scene I did tonight was pwp smut!? Like, WTF?! Can't get writers block at this stage, plz! I'm going to hopefully get back on track with Nanomango (still at 20 pages) tomorrow so I can finish that, at least. Though I think I can push through with Wrimo, make the rest all mushy baby stuff. XD I'm so bad!
Still snowing and blowing outside, miss you all and hope to see more of you once this insanity called Nanowrimo is over in 7 days. Now I'll just watch a little more of Bleach, drink some more chamomille tea and go to bed. Though I should check if my being the opponent to another's lit seminar essay will need any back ground reading in printed form (seminar on Tuesday... ), I hate that I still have to do that. I'm so bad at saying anything critical and all academic sounding and theoretical about someone elses work. And I also simply know
that his work will be done first in the seminar session which means it'll invariably last longer (our prof seems to lose track of time and only after
the first presentation has lasted for about 50-60 mins of our 90 min seminar time does she seems to notice and will rush us through the second or go on over time...)
And ooh yes, mum referred to me as 'when you're published' during the weekend on passing conversation!^^ Made me feel all giddy. She continued with how she'd be hovering around in my signings when I'm all famous!^^
