This morning it felt like Autumn; this is not natural.

Not that I'm complaining--I LOVE the Autumn (what little we usually get of it) but in Texas it usually doesn't stop being 100+ degrees everyday until about, oh, November.  Occasionally December.  So being able to step out the door t his morning without breaking into an instantaneous sweat was a very welcome surprise.  Considering that I only got about three hours of sleep last night, if that, I was very happy about this.

Much to my amazement, it's getting closer to noon and still hasn't broken 80 degrees. (It hit 83 at noon. Still, not bad, Weather Gods, not bad.)  Please, Gods, let this continue!  It would be such a nice break from the norm.  And if it continues, we're less likely to get another hurricane.  Which reminds me that I need to go check the news to see how Mexico is faring.

Since finishing the SSFPs I've taken a bit of a break from writing full prose and have been concentrating on outlines.  I'm pleased as punch that the JSoI (South park fic) outline has gotten a good start to it, and a thus unnamed Resident Evil one is beginning to take some serious shape.  There's a couple others that are about in bits and pieces, but I'm starting to become more organized about my writing which is a HUGE improvement over how I used to be.  Also, I'm begining to believe that WiP might wrap up in about three to four more chapters.  Which will be nice.

The SSFP projects have rolled into another multiverse SM fic which will begin.. probably sometime in January of next year.  I have to give the Thon time with them, of course, and actually write an outline for it since THAT particular one will have to have some serious attention given to date and time within the fic.  The ideas for it are mounting up, though, and that's a good thing. :D

Ugh, I really need to stop adding more to my To-Do list and yet I feel like i've hit a creative surge here lately, even if it is all in a fan-fic related direction.  I think Nanorimo might not happen this year, or else I'll do a fanwork for it instead of anything original.  I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing, or if it merely is.

On a more personal note, I'm fairly confident in graduating this quarter.  Thus far no major hangups have occurred, and Norm has said that he'll happily pass my Reel, so I don't expect him to flunk me. It isn't the best thing in the world, but I never expected it to be.

Also, I feel like wringing someone's neck.  This time, at least, my anger has a very obvious instigator behind it.  To jackass programers worldwide:  If  you update software that your customers RELY ON to get their work done, do NOT take away the ONLY method we had to get something done, and replace it with NOTHING.  Seriously. I counted on that little loop hole that let me force your program to do exactly as I wanted it to, even if it wasn't technically designed that way.  I do NOT appreciate your sewing that hole up and leaving me at a loose end with my bosses breathing down my neck (even though they're the ones that make me use your shitty program in the first place.) You know DAMN WELL that a ton of people used that loop hole to begin with, I  was told so by your own customer service people who help us all take advantage of that loophole. WHY THE FUCK DID YOU DO THAT D:< Why does it bother you so much that we want to redirect back to our own fucking website instead of using your horrible looking, cookie-cutter shit?

Thanks to you, i will be probably be stuck here until late tonight.
