On day 2 of NaNoWriMo my word count is at day 5, and I am trying not to be too smug about this but failing miserably. I wrote 500 words by hand in my car went I got to work early and my hand is cramping up because I don't write like that anymore. It makes me feel like an awful person, but at the same time I appreciate being solidly in the age of computers just for the solid footing it gives me.
I absolutely abhor the new Google Reader, so much so that I almost used the survey they have up on Google Docs to express my dissatisfaction. I didn't share a whole lot before, or have any people I followed, but I did occasionally check on the profiles of people who liked the same posts as me and then discover new blogs to follow. And I used to be able to see how many new entries there were at all times, without having to scroll up, and as someone who is obsessive about reading things in order it's now so hard to make sure that nothing else is left before reading the best. Hopefully someone will have unveiled a close approximation to the original by the time I'm done with NaNoWriMo.
On top of that, I still haven't figured out where to stash my fandom bookmarks in a post-delicious world. I know that pinboard is taking over for a lot of people and that Maciej
is being all sorts of awesome but I already have a nonfandom account there. I love it dearly but it is much simpler to keep things separate, and even though I'd be willing to pay for another just for fandom it won't work unless I can easily switch between the two accounts. bookshop
's issues with diigo
rule that one out. For now I'm saving fic on chrome, and it's not working out at all, but it's still better than delicious's complete failure to save anything the way I wanted it to once the switch went over.
On the subject of fic, Twenty-Twelve
made me shiver at the awesomeness.
Now I am watching MLS playoffs and thinking of buying a bright green shirt and flying across the country just to sit with the amazingly passionate fans in Seattle. (Also, Tony Beltran is playing defense for Real Salt Lake and all I can think of is four years ago when he played for the youth team and ussoccer.com told stories about him and Sal Zizzo playing hide-and-seek in the dark, and it reminds me that watching these kids* grow up is one of my favorite thing about following sports.)*He's a year younger than I am. But I still consider myself a child, so.
