I'm feeling vaguely accomplished. I managed to get Wicked Ones and Wicked Ones: The Early Years posted to [community profile] eternal_sailorm on the same day that I posted them to AO3. I'm still failing at getting them on DarkMagick.net, but that's something I cannot do at IKEA. I can barely do as much as I have with it here at IKEA. The wifi is a joke lately. If it stays connected for five minutes at a time, I count it as a god damn miracle.

I wish I was exaggerating.

Aside from that, I've been trying to get my words done for the day. It hasn't been easy. I wrote 150 words last night, but when I booted the computer up this morning, it only showed 86. When it synced again later today, I dropped from 200 or so down to 120. So I'm not sure what's going on with Scrivener. It could just be the app not playing happily with the computer version, but who knows.

Whole damn restaurant for people to pick from, and yet they keep on sitting down on the other end of my couch. I don't get it. I wouldn't do that to other people, no more than I would sit down at someone else's table next to them.

Hell, maybe I ought to start doing that. Remember these people's faces and just plop down next to them when they sit down to eat. See how they like it. Because I damn sure don't like it. I'm going to start sitting across the couch instead of sticking to one end. Maybe that'll break people of it.

Somehow I doubt it, though. I'm not sure if I look nice or something, but when I'm working, it breaks my concentration when someone flops down hard on the other end of my seat... and then give me dirty ass looks like I'm disturbing them. And I certainly don't want to leave and go to the restroom with someone sitting in this seat. I've come back to people going through my bag with that before.

It's one thing when they ask first and I can move my stuff, but it's something else altogether when they just flop their asses down. Obviously, I don't like it.

Fuck it. The latest one's up, so I'm turning and putting my feet up on the other end of the couch. I don't give a shit anymore. I'm done trying to be nice or polite or much of anything else.

Now let's see if I can't stay connected long enough to post this entry. I guess we'll see, huh?

I thought that was a typical Dutch thing to do; always sit close to the only person in an otherwise empty environment. Once, I sat in an entire empty train compartment and someone else entered - and sat right across of me! For the next hour, I had to sit uncomfortably (I have long legs, and train compartments are cramped, I don't have to tell you that) just because some asshole thought it was 'nice' to 'sit together' (not that we had any conversation)... like... WTF? I don't like it either, but I guess people gravitate towards other people as a sort of group mentality, while we're the exceptions to that rule. I've never liked working in groups either. Just leave me alone with my laptop :)
