Weekend Coffee Share – 18/12/16

…and it’s back to the hot drinks today. The highest it’s supposed to get this week is 70, and today about 63. Which I know is nothing to many, but is on the cold side for here.
Not to much has happened this week. Work remains meh.

Bought me best mate another present, and missed out on the Yule party with some other friends on Saturday cause work schedule was changed. 

And ugh, someone beat me to the laundry room this morning and took up all three washers. Which considering I got there right after six in the morning lets you know how anxious they were to get there. And best part, when dryer time came, two were running but one was done with a few clothes in it. Which, of course, turns out didn’t belong with the other two, so could have taken them out and had my clothes dried over 30 minutes sooner. #apartmentlifeproblems

Good for me, my usual time to leave gets me to work an hour and half early (bus rider), so had some wiggle room.

At some point will need to see Star Wars Rogue One. Hearing great things about it. And love all the memes with ‘spoilers’ on its sequel, which of course is A New Hope. 

Was able to tell someone in one of my Fb groups about the coffee share. She wanted to join a blog collective ( and yes my geekdom had to fight past Borg Collective for that) so I told her about this. Fingers crossed.

Decided to try Milwordy next year. A million words written in one year. Needless to say, this will include ALL words. Blog posts, fanfic, NaNo. Breaks down to 2,740 words a day. Within the realm, provided I sit my arse down and do it. And find the projects.

No resolutions, just goals. 

Time will tell. Til next week.

(I feel like I should come up with some kinda and off, you know. Hmm. For now, to paraphrase the original Weekend Update team, Good Day and Have a Pleasant Tomorrow.)

Don’t forget to join the others.

Weekend Coffee Share – 11/12/16

coffee-tea

.. I would remark on how our weather has changed. It is expected to be mid-ish70s all this week. So if we sit out in the sun, I just might offer you an iced beverage.

Work was actually different this week. I had to work a morning shift (6:30 – 3:00). It was interesting. Time actually seemed to move differently compared to my usual shift (12:00-8:30). An okay experience but not sure I would want to make it be a regular thing.

I have created another blog as a tool to explore my religion, Heathenry. Both to see what it is I believe and as a way to learn to articulate it to others. I read the bus and occasionally you get someone wanting to share their god with you. Just want to be able to return the favor, as it were.

In that view, I saw two of a six part series on PBS World about pilgrimages. It was called ‘Sacred Journeys’ and the two I saw were the main pilgrimages for Muslims and for Hindus. The interesting part on a personal level was as the pilgrims were talking about their faiths, it made me wonder of my relationship to my faith. With any luck, that desire will continue and lead me to the questions I want to answer.

But enough seriousness. I sadly missed the Harry Potter Yule Balls that were held nationwide at Barnes & Noble. I’ve heard mixed reviews online of how they went, but have a feeling the one at my usual store would have been quite nice.

I’ve bought one present for me best mate and have an eye on a second and possible third. Not sure what to get the family of course.

I have two books picked out for my reading challenge next year. Might try and swing for more than just the max two a month, we’ll see.

Saw a daily prompt writing journal might pick up for next year. Work on gaining a few habits in ’17.

2017 in just a couple more weeks. Rarely have I been more ready to put a year behind me. Not for a personal reason, of course. Just this crazy year that never should have been.

I feel like getting some ice cream, it’s such a nice day. What say, cup or cone?

Weekend Coffee Share – 3/12/16

Well, it has been some time.

*settles in with eggnog latte and blueberry scone*

How have you been?

I can’t complain. Work proceeds as usual.

I am happy to say I did win this year’s NaNoWriMo, after last year’s dismal showing. And managed to make it to the All-Nighter we have here. 7 p.m. To 7 a.m. Which I much needed and helped me get over the hump.

But crazy December is on us, leaning into what is hoped will be a much different year of 2017. I refer more to those personalities that we have lost, so many more than seems to be the usual.

I shall shy away from the current political scene. We can all see the new layout of the land. Only thing that matters is how we personally react to the new reality.

I have finally gotten a new phone. My last two were old ones of friends. Woke up one day and discovered phone wouldn’t charge and got hot so off to the store. Still getting used to it. And wondering if there’s any hope of getting the files trapped on the old one.

I still been playing around with the bullet journal. Seeing if can make it work with a cheapy journal before spring for a upgrade for the new year. 

Decided to do my own reading challenge on Facebook for next year, roped a few friends into it. Just one or two books a month under broad genres. Work up to that 50 book one been fighting the last couple years.

I loved Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I saw it with me best mate at a theatre where they bring food to your seat as you watch the movie. I had a good hamburger and fries with hot tea. Glad the Wizarding World is off to such a great continuation.

A friend of mine had a video spotlighted on the offical Wizarding World YouTube channel. He did it on cosplaying Newt Scamander.

I’m ready for a refill, can I get you another?
