mis_creation: (Book Pagan)
Actually, I have been relatively busy lately, although that may slow down for the holidays. Then again, maybe not.

NaNo went incredibly well, if stressful. I was an organizer this year (Municipal Liaison), and my co-ML is a friend I work with at the library who is super gung-ho and organized and full of "Let's do this too!" Which is great, because enthusiasm is hard to come by for me, but it led to write ins every day of the week, two parties that went until two in the morning, counting, boxing, and hauling books for the bookdrive, as well as all kinds of mentoring stuff for the writers themselves.

It was more effort than I've put into anything in a long time. Exhausting, but rewarding, really.

*****

New music rec: S. J. Tucker. Though I wouldn't recommend her for everyone, she does good pagan folk, with influences from other genres. I only own one of her albums so far, Sirens, but I'm enjoying the hell out of it. My favorites are "The Drowning" and "Go Away Godboy" and "Lady Vagabond". Great rhythm.

I'm a little troubled that she seems to think "gypsy" means something that it doesn't. She keeps using it in the romanticized, stereotypical, and inaccurate way, and I dislike that. But that's a common thing, and not all that bothersome on the whole.

*****

As a reward for myself finishing NaNo with over 70K (eek!), I bought myself a legit copy of Guild Wars. I've been having fun on it, when my internet connection is fast enough for it. I try not to spend too long on it, and a few quests have repeatedly kicked my ass which piss me off and make me want to get off the computer. So I guess it's a good thing?

Anyway, I'm going to go see if I can finish the quest I started yesterday.

Aaarg!

If you know me at all, you will know that at least part of the reason I got a new computer was so I could play games better. And play better games.

So I was all excited and I bought Neverwinter Nights 2 for Michael with my gift card from the holidays.

And it turns out that my video card isn't good enough. I can't play the fucking game at all.

And I tried to play Black and White 2, and it lags horribly and doesn't look like that great a game seeing as I can't click out of the stupid tutorial/intro scene. So both the games I have are fucking useless!

So now it looks like even if Spore does get released this year, my computer won't be able to handle it!

And I'm not going to waste money and void the short warrantee I have on my computer to put in another video card right now.

FUCK!

I guess it's back to Age of Mythology and TS2 for me. Gods be fucking damned to the nine hells and back.
