A Successful Work Week . . . What Day Is It?

I kept running into the song ‘Engel’ by Rammstein this week and then I found an AMV that combined it with Neon Genesis Evangelion.  Sadly, only the English version of the song has sound while the rest have been muted by YouTube.  I prefer the German because it sounds cooler.  There might some NSFW stuff in the video since NGE went a little (HA!) off the rails for the last quarter of the series.  Haven’t watched it in a while and only saw the first movie of the remake.  Need to find the others just to figure out why Asuka has an eye-patch at some point.  Is it because of the thing that happened during the big thing near the end?  Don’t tell me.  Let’s get back to the category system:

Blogging

This week had two goals since I finished Derailing Bedlam last Sunday.  That was to get all of the September posts scheduled and the December guest posts.  I was doing a little of the first when I was too tired or busy for writing, so that was finished quickly.  Some of the guest posts were rough, but I hit a stride on Monday and managed to get everything except the 3 interviews done.  Those will have to wait until November.  None of these posts have the links beyond social media and a ‘CHECK OUT THE REST OF LEGENDS OF WINDEMERE’ link at the bottom of it all.  I’ll probably take a weekend to write the blurbs for Legends of Windemere: Warlord of the Forgotten Age.  At least once the next part happens.

Laptop Adventure

I sent it out Wednesday afternoon since I’d finished everything.  Almost instantly, I forgot what day of the week it was and didn’t know what to do with myself.  Since there isn’t a holiday involved, I should get it back relatively quickly.  Be nice if they fix it quicker, but I want it done.  If this has to happen a third time then I don’t know what I’m going to do.  At that point, they should just give me a replacement laptop and assume it’s a problem that can’t be found.  Something like a broken wire or angry spirit of a guy who cut himself putting the sound card in.  He died afterwards, but it was because a herd of water buffalo ran him over.  Yeah, that makes sense for Texas.

Politics and Religion

NOPE!

Reading and Watching

Funny manga story.  I’ve been reading ‘Claymore’ and was at the end, but had a wrinkle.  I had volumes 25-27, but 24 wouldn’t show up.  Seems the library I requested it from junked it soon after I asked or something like that.  I had to get it from another county, which meant I had to binge read the last 4 volumes.  A better ending than I saw people talking about online.  I got a little tired of the main villain when she stopped talking and just slaughtered people.  Still not sure how one of the good guys died too since others had survived worse.  Heck, she was only sliced into 5-6 parts.  They put her back together before it was too late and the head was attached to the torso.  Yeah, you really need to work hard to kill these characters by the end.

I finished watching season 1 of Shakugan No Shana too.  Forgot how messed up some of the villains are.  I mean, we’re talking one pair that would make the Lannisters get a little queasy.  Since I only have today, the weekend, and two days next week to watch while outlining, I’m going to toss ‘Soul Eater’ in.  Running out of anime and I prefer to watch on the TV, but the one in my room has no Internet access.  For the free stuff on-line, I’d have to use the main TV and that means hearing my dad repeatedly ask questions.  My favorite is this one from Fairy Tail:

Dad- Why do the women always have large breasts?
Me-  Not all of them.  That one doesn’t.
Dad-  Which one?  *starts turning back to TV and the scene changes to Lucy Heartfilia*:

Fairy Tail

Me & Wife- Never mind.

Book titles

Just a quick note about the question put up on Thursday.  Most people liked the idea of Nightfall or Nytefall.  Yet, it was pointed out that Nightfall is used a lot.  So, the Dawn Fang series will be:

War of Nytefall

Nytefall is going to be the name of Clyde’s base and capital city.  The enemies, the older vampires, have a city named Nyte, so he decides to be a jerk.  In modern times, Nyte is used as a decoy city by the Dawn Fangs while Nytefall is where the real leadership and new vampires live.

The Future

What’s to say?  The kid finished summer school on Tuesday and then he’s home until after Labor Day.  I won’t be doing much in terms of writing.  We have a busy weekend set up too, so I don’t get to ease into things.  Right now, the only thing planned is finishing the school supply shopping before we have to pick from scraps.  His backpack is falling apart, so that’s a priority.  I’ll probably wait until the following week for any real outings.  There’s a nature walk area that has ospreys, which I promised to show him.  Beyond that, we’ll see what comes up.  I’m getting worn on doing all these intricately planned outings when I know my son would be happy with just going out and having fun.

Goals:

  1. Entertain the munchkin.
  2. Work on outline and characters for another Sin story.
  3. School supply shopping.
  4. Continue getting used to the oral appliance.
  5. Remember to mention Derailing Bedlam in next post.  It’s done and the characters had fun.  A few took a bigger role that made them almost equal to Cassidy and Lloyd.  Guess that covers it actually.
  6. Continue answering superhero questions.  We made it through Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Justice League Action, Teen Titans Seasons 1-3, and now we’re on Batman Beyond.  All we’ll be missing is Superman the Animated Series (on the way) and Batman the Animated Series (working on it).  Guess the other Teen Titans seasons too, but I’m sure On Demand will put them up eventually.
  7. Keep an eye on the laptop.  Hopefully it comes back next weekend.  Then I’ll have to put all the programs back on.  Sarcastic yay!

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. I’m glad you had a successful work week. You deserved one after all the bad weeks you’ve had lately.

    Hope the laptop comes back quickly and stays fixed this time, or they give you a new one that doesn’t keep doing this to you. Either way, good luck with it.

  2. Texas hint on the laptop brand. I hope all goes well with it. I hate it that we are so dependent on these things.

  3. Sounds reasonably productive to me. I worked on peripheral projects all morning and avoided anything of substance. I seem to do that on occasion.

    Sigh. Been there with my laptop. Grrrrrrrrr! So sorry! I hope you get it back quickly.

    As usual I feel lazy looking at your list.
    I’d love to see ospreys myself! I hope your son enjoys the outing.
