I’ve missed the March 21st Update by 26 minutes, but that only makes us more in need of an update. Despite what I would like to be able to convince myself, a lack of progress doesn’t absolve me of my responsibility to keep you all informed.
In this case, keeping you informed is just letting you know I slept until noon, went to work for a meeting, ended up covering an interview for my boss, took care of things in the office for a bit, and dropped off a package on my way home.
Oh, and I wrote a bit after I got home.
We’re at a whopping 30%.
I probably would have been closer to 70% if I had managed to resist the temptation of my first mistress- I haven’t received any suggestions for her name, so maybe something like Natalee [Which is what I started calling my Flame Atronach in Skyrim]- but she managed to drag me away to play Darksouls for a couple hours before I became weary of running past the same enemies just to die again.
After that I realized both that I needed to get to bed and that I hadn’t posted this earlier like I was planning. So, here we are. I could tell you about today’s Darksouls session, or ramble on about my history with Darksouls- actually, that would only take a few paragraphs- but I’ve almost finished my wine [Blackberry Merlot, currently my favorite] and it’s taken me a good twenty minutes to write this because I started going through the notes of my Skyrim playthough looking for a better name to refer to my first mistress by.
I use “First Mistress” quite a bit, actually- one of the reason’s she needs a name- but I don’t think I’ve mentioned the others. Don’t think I will just yet, either. My second mistress already has a name, though, and my first is more than a little jealous.
Once again I’ve managed to rambled on about nothing and, having realized this the other day while driving home from work- or was it to work?- I’ve decided you deserve something with a bit more substance.
Actually, you probably don’t. Not in an Update, anyway. I need to start posting things that aren’t updates again- supplemental material, personal things, maybe some strange ideas that have popped into my head, and the like- but that’s for another day.
Huh, probably say that more often than I should too, probably why I don’t get nearly enough done.
Regardless, I’m going to add something more to this update than a disappointing amount of progress on chapters and the fact that I have trouble resisting the call of Natalee.
Hmm, not sure if I like it. Think it’s missing something.
Anyway, to add substance to this late night- early morning- post I present you;
Pictures of my Bonsai!
Well, the box said they were Bonsai. I got them off Amazon for like $20 when I was doing Christmas Shopping back in November of 2018, so there’s a rather large likelihood I’m just growing trees in tiny-ass pots I keep in a windowsill.
Either way, this post now has pictures and you’ve learned something completely random about me. Congratulations.
Oh, and if anyone is familiar with Delonix Regia or Jacaranda Mimosifolia can you please let me know if I’ve managed to get them backwards? I’m 90% certain that the bottom picture- my favorite of the two- is actually the Delonix Regia but as it’s not a bright red- and the top one isn’t purple- I can’t know for sure that I’ve fucked up.
Actually, I can. I just won’t admit it until I absolutely have to.
It’s now been forty minutes for me to write all this- I don’t think it takes as long to make this much progress in Sealkeeper, but maybe I just don’t notice- so I’ll end it here.
If there’s anything specific you’d like me to talk about or random pictures you’d like to see please feel free to let me know. I have to fill these updates with something when I haven’t been getting enough writing done.
But seriously, let me know if there’s something about me, my gaming, or my writing you’d be interested in. I’ve noticed recently- though it’s been this way for years- that people seem somewhat hesitant when they reach out to me, like I’m going to be upset with being disturbed.
I won’t be.
If I didn’t want people to be able to reach out to me I wouldn’t have posted the story- and would have missed out on the fantastic ego boost that is having people tell you how much they enjoy it- or I’d disable private messaging.
I’m more than happy to answer questions or discuss an idea you have.
And if those questions are about me, well, you’ve come to the right place. I like to consider myself an expert.
We’ll end this here before I start rambling again.
Well, rambling more.
Until I next have your attention,
