Hello!

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm still alive. I had a lot of fun at ECCC. I saw the actors who play The Punisher and Foggy on Daredevil, but there's nothing too interesting to report there. ECCC was super fun. I spent money that I didn't have, which might have been stupid, but if you never do anything fun when you're poor then the world gets super depressing really fast.

Anyway, I know I still have 3 rewatches to do to finish up S10. The next one on the list is Dark Dynasty, so I've been procrastinating like mad about it, because I honestly just do not want to watch that episode again. BUT, I have to for two reasons - 1)to catalogue the clothes and 2)because I'm going to be changing the events of it for the next demented'verse installment and so I need to remind myself what happens.So, you can expect me to do it eventually... maybe this weekend, if I end up with no plans on Saturday night.

In other news, I'm working on a sequel to Men of Legend. I've got about 15k written so far. It'll PROBABLY end up being about as long as the first one at 33k, we'll see though!

Other than that... I'm completely broke still. I'm currently waiting on my boss-man to have a free 15 minutes in his schedule so that we can talk about a possible salary increase, but of course my main worry is that I'll bring it up and he'll just fire me and then I'll have nothing. I'm already only surviving by "stealing" about $200 every month from my father (I put it in quotation marks, because I usually ask with the promise to pay him back, and I think we both know that I'm not going to follow through... sigh.)

Good news is that my mum is paying for me to fly back to Ontario for a bit in May to help her with some things - so that'll be nice. As much as I like Vancouver, I also really like Ontario.

What else... oh! My BFF is moving back to the North American continent after nearly 8 years in exile (China). Sadly, he is not moving back to Canadaland or even anywhere close to me... he will be in Washington, DC. I have never been there. I hear it contains government people, museums, statues, and at least one giant obelisk. Also, Captain America lived there for a time, before Shield fell (Wait, that's fiction.)

Anyway, how are you guys? I feel like we don't talk anymore. I miss you!

Crossing everything that you get your raise!
In my case, watching the episode is great... it's writing that I'm having a hard time starting on lately:P

Thanks!

I do both the writing and the watching simultaneously, when it comes to rewatches, anyway.

If I did that, I might not be able to enjoy the rewatch as much and I think I need more time to think about the ep than you before I start writing ;D

Procrastination??? I know all about procrastination. It's practically my middle name.

Good to hear from you. I hope you get some time to talk to your boss about the wage increase. anything confirmed up about what we were talking about last summer? I hope that comes through for you.

Otherwise, good to hear everything is going fairly well. See you around the block sometime.

Thanks for commenting on this today. It totally reminded me that I STILL have to do this rewatch. :P

I've now mentioned it to my boss and also mentioned it with my manager, who said he'd talk to my boss about it. So... hopefully that means something will happen.

If what we talked about last summer was the possible higher-paying contract - then no, nothings come through on that yet, though it might still possible. I'm stuck in ridiculously long limbo waiting on that. :P

And I still have to comment on the rewatches. I am SO FAR BEHIND on commenting on any reviews. So much to do, so little time.

I do hope something will happen about an wage increase. Keep bugging your boss because they will "forget"

Yes, that is what I was thinking about was the higher paying contract. Waiting is the worst, especially when it involves earning money. It's even worse if it is the government involved, their wheels always grind SO SLOWLY! I hope something happens on that front sooner rather than later.
