So! In the upcoming year of 2013, [personal profile] lassarina and I will be playing through each Final Fantasy game, in order! One game every month! Moving on at the end of every month! And we'll be blogging our thoughts, our meta, our deconstructions and fannish feels - and once a month I will, apparently, be drunk!live!blogging something horrible - and recording everything here: [community profile] moogle_university, as a public record of our gamer cred (for Rina) / shame (for me).

I've posted an intro here, if you want to know a little bit about my reasons for doing this project and how excited I am to have had this awesome idea. I invite anybody who wants to watch/join the comm -- part of what I love about Final Fantasy is the community built out of its fannish love, so everybody's welcome. It would be awesome if people helped to spur us on or even asked questions as we got the project rolling.

So, yeah. That's a thing.

Weekend with [livejournal.com profile] lassarina in Chicago: Excellent!

Friday night I made really good time... until I made a lazy stop for food and put myself directly in the beginning of rush-hour traffic. Note to self: YOU ARE AN IDIOT; when making good time on the road, don't ruin it! Anyway, after fighting the mobs of traffic, I got the Meglet, we got the Natalie, and then hit Chipotle. We then returned and basically denned for the night weekend, save a trip out to the Cheesecake Factory, because there is not one near me which means I like to go whenever possible (as I am trying to eat every delicious-looking item on their menu one by one!).

We watched the cutscenes from Lost Odyssey; while I'm not sure I have a really firm grasp on the entire game/plotline from the cutscenes, I can probably pick it up with an FAQ or game script. It was pretty and shiny, and had a lot of pretty awesome characters. I also got Persona 3! We started it but didn't get far at all -- I'm looking forward to picking that one up at home.

Edited to add: Also, Meg's cat molested me in my sleep. Trufax!!

Other than that, there was various fic-writing and lots of delicious drinks to be had. Meg and Nat introduced me to raspberry lambic, and as I am just getting involved in the brewing process here (a beginning brewmistress, to be sure) I'm now kind of curiously poking at recipes.

In other news, apparently when there is no traffic, the drive from me to Chicago actually only takes 5.5 hours, including a stop for food and gas. This probably means that I drive WAY too fast*. I blame [livejournal.com profile] hilldo for distracting me on the phone for the last hour of the drive, which pretty much flew by. Stay tuned for our awesome future projects, guys. After we beat Secret of Mana, of course. There are vampires and wigs and crime-solving. stfu.

In other news, I am a bit ahead for JanNoWriMo; as I've already failed at the write-every-day goal, it looks like my new goal is just to write as many words as freaking possible. I wrote over 1000 words of Seifer/Irvine at Meglet's alone; as it was over the course of an evening I actually split it up to cover Saturday/Sunday (we were up pretty late on Sunday!) to be fairer.

NOW comes the fun of getting ready for Ohayocon! It looks like I will be unable to join [livejournal.com profile] drakonlily this weekend for prep so I am trying to make a list of all the things I need to remember to bring and/or buy myself this weekend in whatever spare time I have. Help me out here, guys (esp Jana, Katy, Drakon, Becky):

OHAYOCON )

I'm pretty excited for this convention, and also excited to be bringing people back home for the always-awesome Super Bowl party!

Anyway. Another totally crammed beginning-of-the-week for me. I hate my new Mon-Tues-Wed schedule, but hey, what can you do. Other than bitch about it a bit and then just man up.



* meaning 50 miles per hour AND SAFE, of course

If I'm more unavailable than usual this weekend, it's because I am off in Chicago, finally beating FFXII and drinking copious amounts of wine with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lassarina!

expect drunken texts Talk to you all next week!

Public Service Announcement: There is a new chapter of How Not to Date Blondes up, finally! [livejournal.com profile] rosencrantz and I have triumphed over HOW MANY MONTHS of writers' block.

And here is how I spent my Monday morning!

Enkida and I tag-team brainstorming for Chapter 8 in Google Docs: SPOILERZ FOR HNTDB OMG only not really )

(ETA) This can now also be found on [livejournal.com profile] capslock_ff!!

While this was going on, I then created this new OTP with [livejournal.com profile] twilightsrain:

My work / Nikki's Homework = OTP )

Meanwhile, [livejournal.com profile] lassarina and I email-spammed each other about porn, and [livejournal.com profile] justira and I chatted about FFX, FFEX, washing cats, cat macros, and everything else inbetween. Oh, and cats.

And also, Ira is sending me books.

I love people who distract me during the day.

Two points for hilariously ridiculous conversations with [livejournal.com profile] lassarina. Awkward FTW!

Hrm.

I'm mostly just posting to test out the new LJ window that everyone has been talking / complaining / squeeing about. It's not the bad, rly. I have to say.

[livejournal.com profile] lassarina and I will have topped 200 emails by the end of the day. THIS IS RIDICULOUS, RINA. SO MANY HEARTS TO YOU. Can you tell it's been a bad week at work for both of us?

2.5 days of work left before my Christmas vacation. Not that I'm counting.
