Yesterday was officially my mom's last day at the only real job she's ever had—she would have been there 25 years in November, but who's really counting the days at this point?  Hardly anyone stays in social work for that long, or at least not at community mental health centers; so there's been a lot of turnover in the time that she's been there.  There's only one other clinician who's been there as long as she has.  It was pretty sad. :'(  But, I got her ice cream and pizza to make her feel a little better.  And at this point, we've been in the process of moving for ... about two years, I guess it's been, so we're all kind of looking forward to it being over, even if it means I won't technically be a resident of New Hampshire any more.  (I am trying to find a way through that loophole!  THEY CAN'T MAKE ME GIVE UP MY STATE!!!!!  I HAVE TO VOTE IN THE ELECTION!!!!!!!!)

In other news, I spent most of yesterday battling sprint reading The Door in the Basement.  I like it, but it needs a bit of work.  Hopefully he will like my suggestions!  Still trying to finish the Hierophant's thing, though—I'm almost done, and then I will be done with vampires!!!!!  It is entirely her right to write about vampires, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.  But I will still edit it, because I LOVE EDITING.

Off to school tomorrow.  It's a terrifying thought.  I have to actually do stuff, now.  Laaaaaame.

Randomly:  Last night, my brother said "blah blah blah allwhere ... I mean, everywhere".  It made me laugh hysterically for about fifteen minutes, and it didn't help that he said at some point, "Don't worry, you won't have to drive on any runway streets—I mean, one way streets."  AIRPLANE!!!!!!  RUN!!!!!  I MEAN, DRIVE!!!!!!

Chapter 4

Aug. 26th, 2011 09:51 am
I had a bit of a hiccup yesterday when I posted Chapter 4, as I ... may have accidentally forgotten to edit the last chunk. There was a bit of Ginny Is a Superhero!!! in there, in that Ginny kind of scored six goals with the Quaffle and then caught the Snitch (even though she's a Chaser) ...

It was not my shining moment. But I realized I had done that while walking to lunch, and managed to fix it before too many people read it. (Well, my hit number went up 1 during the intervening time, so I'm going to assume that I lost that particular reader; and hopefully no one else read it, either.) I have no idea how the AO3 counts hits, but I'm hoping it doesn't mean I just lost my very small readership. :P

But! I have continued working on my brother's girlfriend's (let's call her the Hierophant) story, and ... well, I am not a vampire person, and I generally find vampires disgusting; but she writes fairly well. She just needs to cut out a lot of the excess fluff. I think she wants to publish it, but while it is definitely good, in my personal opinion it is sort of far from being of publishable quality.

I attempted to watch Burn Notice and Suits, but the internet has failed me. :P I guess that means I should just get started on Chapter 5 ... at this rate, I will be done by the time I get to school. One chapter a day? Maybe I should start editing them ...

Also: 1.5 MORE DAYS!!!!!!
