Ahh one of the wonderful things about this project is I can just… write. I don’t have to adhere to any sort of strict rules.
Okok, I know I mentioned that I would spend this week working on Action scenes, but I’m not actually in the mood to write creatively. I’m more or less in the mood to just write my thoughts n’ stuff. I hope that’s ok… if you’re tuning in for the creativity, it should be back tomorrow!
I’m spending tonight drinking iced tea that I make from Twinings English Breakfast teabags and a little bit of sugar in a special jug from T2 tea. One of the things I miss the most living in the USA is the iced tea that I got there. That, and restaurants with lots of variety. It seems like most of the restaurants here just have these icky little set menus and that’s it, they don’t change or they don’t offer variations.
Perth needs a freakin’ Denny’s. I’d love to have one, right next to the airport. 24 hours, it’d be perfect. I mean, even the “Lord Mayor” Lisa Scaffidi commented that there were few and far places to have a nibble here (well, there’s a Maccas…)
Also, Lord Mayor and she’s a lady. I always resist the urge to giggle at that. I mean, the role is probably a leftover from the British Parliamentary system, and Australia is still apart of the Commonwealth so it makes sense, but… why not just Mayor?
I digress. Perth REALLY needs a freakin’ Denny’s. Or Bob Evans. OR IHOP! YESSSS…. International HOUSE OF PANCAKES! That’d be brilliant, and then Matt could have terrible American Coffee again with Butter Pecan Syrup. *lol* that’d be HILARIOUS. (We were visiting my family in the states, eating breakfast at IHOP and Matt was desperate for good coffee – he ended up killing the bad coffee with copious amounts of creamer and butter pecan pancake syrup. It still makes us giggle today).
Anyway, I’m drinking tea, and I’ve been reading today, indulging in fanfiction. I just read this one that focused on the lonliness and isolation that people can feel when they’re heartbroken, and on the masks that we as people use to fit into society. It was SO good. I cried, I smiled… but mostly, I resonated with the characters in the story because I’ve seen and fought my own battles with depression and seen Matt go through his and it was just… so good to see how it can affect people. I’ve been trying to write my own fanfiction that will have depression issues but I don’t know if I could EVER write it as good as these two J
Speaking of sadness, I’m a bit sad that I’m leaving my job the end of this week. Monday I start my new position with a new company, but there’s still that twinge. I don’t feel that the decision was too hasty as it just feels like it’s the right move at the right time, and knowing that they’re not replacing me right away has me feeling better about it a bit. But in the end I still feel a bit sad, I will miss some people and the freedoms that living 5 minutes away from work gave me!! But I did love working in the City of Perth when I did, so I’m very much looking forward to that. AND I’m really looking forward to working IN A SKYSCRAPER! Zomg, so cosmopolitan, the 27th floor! The views will be AMAZING. Career wise it’s the best move for me in the end, so I’m happy about that, just sad to be leaving a company that is pretty damned good, no matter how grumpy I get at some of the people who work there.
Also, totally tooting my own horn, tonight I made the BEST chicken – it was a mustard chicken that I made the sauce mostly out of chicken stock and American style mustard (French’s… the best, of course!) It was very very tasty, and Matt (the husband) wasn’t sure that he would like it that much to begin with because the sauce wasn’t thick and creamy (no cream! Yay!) but the rice we had with it soaked up the sauce beautifully… and of course, the veggies were awesome. I’m pretty awesome. Hehe!
So, thank you for letting me indulge in rambling during this unscheduled break in the program. Tomorrow, we’ll get back together with Calenia and Lia, and my attempts to writing action. Have a great night/day, everyone! 🙂
Ohh! One more thing, thank you to everyone who is following me and checking me out. I appreciate it! ❤ I hope you enjoy my project as much as I’m enjoying it!
