I do, in fact, live... just very quietly. ^_~

I have been turtling recently --and by recently I mean 'Since last August'-- but am trying to focus on peeling myself away from the computer and back into productive hobbies. (I love WoW, but it needs to become less of an obsession and more of a pastime. Spending every evening and every weekend doing one thing isn't good, even if it's something I really enjoy. Variety is the spice of life, and whatnot!)

So this blog will become a bit more active (and interactive) in the near future. I'll be crossposting from my other blogs (Everyday Dragons, Unquiet Bones, Dreamwidth, etc) so this will once against become Martha Central, they way it used to be. Filters will still be in place, so you should only see what you want to see.. and if you want to see less (or more!) just drop me a line and I will change your filter settings.

So, erm, tldr = Moar Posts Soon. ^_~

Things I am going to do today...

1. Write an actual LiveJournal post.
1a. That is not a list.
1b. Even if I think it's a rather witty bit of silly... On that note. *wanders off to read Skippy's List*

2. Find my desk again.
2a. Attempt to figure out -why- I have a desk. (Seriously, I don't think I've ever used it, what is it's purpose? Other than to pile clothes on...)

3. Post a review to Online Writing Workshop (maybe two)

4. Write 750 words of Silverwitch that are not 'jumping ahead to the fun bits', so as to get back on track with actually posting something.

5. Attempt to construct better plans on building a replacement fence gate beyond 'well, it's square-ish and has hinges'
5a. Go to Lowes.
5b. Realize that 'sorry the saw is broken' is apparently the default, not the exception.
5c. Realize that 8' of 2x4 will not fit in either car.
5d. Do not engage in creative cursing, although somewhat justified by the fact the lumber clerk look at me like I had two heads when I asked for 2x4x6 treated lumber. I R GRL, I CAN2 BUILDZ STUF! Rar.

6. Restock kitchen fuds, so that 'what's for dinner' is 'salad' not 'I dunno, pizza?' *sighs*
6a. Have a Egg McMuffin for breakfast because I am too lazy to shop twice.
6b. Read wrapper.
6c. Realize Egg McMuffins have 370 calories.
6d. Vow to clean enough to get on the treadmill and take back some of the Stupid.

7. Clean stuff around treadmill.

Go Fundable.com!

I am linking this here and on Facebook because as a company voice you really shouldn't say 'but she might be lying' when someone voices a pretty detailed account of how you refuse to give them their money back.

In fact you can think it all you want, but you don't SAY 'but she might be lying' when defneding your company in comments.

Or anywhere else, really. *not amused*

Followed a link from marthawells which led to...

You would think I'd post more...

*sheepish look*

Well, here's a New Week's resolution (since we're nowhere near a New Year *cough*) to get off my duff and start drabbling again.

We'll see how it goes. *crosses fingers*

For drabble prompts we currently have:

sga_flashfic: H/C Challenge
snape100: Challenge #295: "Snape and Mythology"
dw100: Challenge #264: Third Doctor Titles
hp100: Sprains, Strains, and Abrasions
dw100: Fallout

For the moment I'm leaning towards the dw100 since I've just finished watching Children of Earth, but we shall see. *pokes muses*

FREE Writer's Digest back issues (really really old)

...like 1989 old. >.<;; (an random issues up through 1995)

But I don't want to just toss them if anyone else wants them. I've got, erm, lots, so if you'd like a time warp in the mail, just lemme know and I'll throw one in the mailbox for you. Comments are screened, so just drop me an addy and I'll send one out tomorrow. :) If/when/if I run out I'll update this post.

If you want more than one, or if you want to know which issues I have, drop me a comment. Otherwise it's random draw on which one you get. ^_~ heh
