1. Play Pokemon. Okay, so I already did a whole blog post about this. But I wanted to mention it again, mainly so I can post this picture that I took of my Pokemon Y character in front of the Pokemon League in my pink and black sparkly bolero dress. I seriously want this dress IRL. I’ve since started on Pokemon Omega Ruby, and I don’t think you can change outfits in it 😦
2. Secretary in the children’s program at my church. No, I don’t sit in an office and answer phone calls, thank goodness. I don’t even answer the phone at home unless it’s someone I really feel like talking to. And I don’t get paid; it’s volunteer. Though I didn’t actually *volunteer*; they asked me to do it. Basically, I’m in charge of handling paperwork and supplies and being organized. Which is kind of funny, because me being organized is in direct opposition to the natural order of the universe. If I ever get my act together and really get organized, it’ll mean the end of the space-time continuum as we know it. But someone’s got to do it, so it might as well be me. I enjoy it; I love being with the kids and enjoying how cute and smart and spiritual they are, but I don’t have to actually wrangle them like the teachers do. This picture is from the beginning of the year, when I was redoing the teachers’ binders with the lesson manuals and picture kits. I had to get this all cleaned up so my husband could do the taxes on this end of the table, but the other end is still covered with stuff I cleaned out of the supply closet and am trying to “organize”.
I’ve watched a lot more than this (and I haven’t gotten around to watching everything I own yet). I’ve watched Monster, which was good but shied away from being as mind-blowingly weird as it could have been, and FLCL (the first time I watched it, I had a nightmare that night about being a Rod Stewart groupie. Which was really strange because Rod Stewart just isn’t on my radar at all. So if you go to watch FLCL, be warned), and Fruits Basket, which is cute, and Bleach up until about episode 5734 when the same battle had been going on for the last 300 episodes (seriously, let’s move the plot along already!) and a bunch of others, mostly when they used to have anime on Cartoon Network late at night.
Sometimes I even make scrapbook pages about anime!
5. Feed my cats. I must have the world’s most high-maintenance cats. Seriously. Here’s a picture of Themselves in a rare moment when they aren’t eating:
And now that I’ve told you what I do when I’m not writing, it’s time to go write again. I should finish the second major revision of To the Gap today, then it’s on to the fine-tuning and final editing stages. Still looking at a release date in July.
