Weekend Update

Something's wrong when you look at the score and say, "Oh good, the Steelers are only down by seven points."

Anyway, it's been a fun weekend. Remy and I wandered around Stuyvesant Plaza on Saturday (as mentioned in the scarf post), but before that, Angel and Cheryl (aka deathslilsister and ibesky), my former roomies, took my measurements. They're making a set of wedding gowns for a show in Port Ewen in January, and yours truly will be modeling some of their lovely work. A pretty white wedding dress with a corset and filmy sleeves! The little girl in me is squeeing nonstop at the opportunity to play dress-up. I will definitely take pictures.

At night, we watched the very first episode of MST3K evar: The Crawling Eye. No TV's Frank, it was some other guy! And it was before Kevin Murphy started doing Servo, so the really deep voice kinda threw me, but it was pretty neat. Definitely before they hit their stride, but enjoyable.

Today has been laid-back. Housecleaning and laundry, coffee-buying (they make decaf espresso? Doesn't that defeat the purpose?), and knitting. And we watched Wayne's World, which I haven't seen since I was, like, eleven. I get so many more of the jokes now, heh.

Remy and I hit upon a collaborative writing idea and revived some old Truth and Justice role-playing. Pretty wild, trying to remember all the stuff our characters had been up to.

All the LJ-friend hype has finally gotten to me. Tomorrow, if it's slow at work, I'll start and finish my very own bona-fide goddamn NaNoWriMo. Remy plans to write a Perl script that'll randomly pull sentences from a text document and assemble them in a separate text file. I'm going to attempt the same thing in Java (or Ruby, if the lack of proper regexes starts getting to me) and just loop until I'm up to 50,000 words. DONE B4 U OMGLOLZ.
