apollymi: Blank background, text rewads "All ship wars should be resolved by threesome fic" (Text: More threesomes!)
I'm not sure how much, if anything, I have to say. I'm still working on that same damn scene. It just continues to defy me. I've tried working on the modern au instead of it for a while, but I only managed 130 something words before I had to go back to the previous story because it just wouldn't turn me loose.

I feel like I'm worrying too much over this one part. I'm sure it will turn out all right. [personal profile] katsuko keeps making little 'hot damn' comments and turning various shades of red and pink while reading it, so it's probably not as dry as it feels to me.

If I ever manage to finish the damn thing, I'll have to go back and reread it and see if it is a dry read. Obviously, right now it feels a bit that way to me.

Things I've researched today: Pitbull mixes that can get over 100 pounds, etymology of words and phrases (is this culturally appropriate for the time period I'm writing in? do I care?), a dildo big enough to earn the nickname "Big Blue" and be considered big hardware (and now I feel like I've seen things that cannot be unseen), Amazon web music player, the music video for Billie Myers' "Tell Me", and a few dozen other completely unrelated things.

And yeah, that's about it. I didn't write as much as I wanted to, but I'm running out of Sunday. Monday will be here in a very shortly, and I need to be prepared to face it with something approaching dignity and grace. Or awakeness. Take your pick.

apollymi: Chaucer looking annoyed, text reads "I will eviscerate you in fiction" (AKT**Chaucer: Eviscerate you in fiction)
I feel like I should be ashamed of some of the things I've googled today. I'm not even going to think about listing some of them here. Suffice it to say that they've almost all been very, very NSFW. Some have turned out to be rather NSFS (not safe for soul). Most of them were just complete NSFW, though, and I'm all right with that.

I've tried to do a nap today, but it never actually ended up working. I had way too much feline assistance as the case turned out.

I just need to finish the fill that I'm on right now, and then I think I'm going to switch over to the modern au for a bit again. I'm just feeling like I need to get most of my Goody's past their traumas and into the happier sexy times. Weirdly, the other three versions of this story aren't nearly as trauma filled as the two where both characters remain male.

Because yes, [community profile] 15kinks led us to developing five different versions of the same story: canon era (male Faraday/male Goodnight), modern au (male Faraday/male Goody), femme Faraday modern au (with male Goody), femme Goody modern au (with male Faraday), and femme Faraday/femme Goody canon era. The ones with probably the least issues and angst are probably the femme Goody/male Faraday ones, with femme Faraday/male Goody running a close second, then the femmes coming in third. Canon Era and Modern AU? Holy shit, the trauma, issues, and angst. We've spent way too much time working on the angst, issues, and trauma for those two verses. Canon era is the original one, followed by modern au. The other verses came later, in order: femme Faraday, femme Goody, and then the femmes.

And yeah, I guess that's enough babble about the shit I've been writing. Now to go back to actually writing it.

Updating the things

Wednesday, 8 March 2017 10:31 pm
apollymi: Captain America and Bucky staring at each other, no text (Aveng**Steve/Bucky: Watching)
So my hand ended up hurting too badly for me to even try to sleep last night, meaning I got less than an hour overall throughout the night. That in mind, I got out of bed a few dozen times to fuss about with the bandages, trying to loosen them to the point that it no longer hurt but would still stay on. I'd get it to what I thought would be a happy place, go back to bed, catch a few minutes sleep, then wake up with it hurting all over again.

So around 8:00, I went ahead and got out of bed to get ready to go to the Urgent Care. I woke [personal profile] katsuko up with the intention of telling her I was leaving and would be back, but she decided to go too. We got there by 8:45, saw the doctor by 9:15, and were out by 9:45. Doctor Patel was in and out in under 2 minutes, of course, but this is how doctors are, I've found. All the nurses I saw were excellent, though, and they who count, as far as I'm concerned. I'm supposed to start leaving it to air out a bit and only cover it to sleep and go to work. So that's fine. I'm also supposed to never, ever use Neosporin on it: only Vaseline. Which is funny to me, because I only used Neosporin because the LPN told me to.

It's also funny to me because it feels like medicine coming around full circle from where it was in the points of history I've been researching for The Magnificent Seven stories.

Everything above the cut is aggressively numb, which I guess is a good thing. Everything below the cut hurts and aches. The cut itself? It feels sort of... stretched. It only hurts if I move it too much and/or too fast or if something touches it too hard. Soft pressure? Okay. Gentle palpitations? Okay. Sudden movement? Not okay. Anything with pressure? Not okay. Anything weighty against it? Definitely not okay.

I didn't mention this to [personal profile] katsuko before today. But when I originally cut it and saw the depth of the cut (nearly halfway through the finger), my initial and completely numb thought was "Well, hell, I've just degloved my finger". Because apparently my brain has retained too much information from crime dramas.

Don't look up 'degloving'. Just... don't. Or look it up but don't look at pictures. It's a good way to lose one's lunch.

And that's about all I've got updates on. Later, all.

apollymi: Hicks, text reads "My hero" (Aliens**Hicks: My hero)
Long day has been long. [personal profile] katsuko and I did the catering this morning. It ended up taking two trips, but we got it all dealt with. We even had time for a quick, if disappointing, lunch before I dropped her off at work. I headed over to Panera Bread for hot tea until it was time to take Chloe over to mail a package. While we were over there, she mentioned that she hadn't eaten anything in a few days... and I pretty much immediately dragged her next door to the Mexican restaurant.

So, I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I'll probably say a hundred more times: sometimes my brain can't decide if I'm Team Mom or Big Sis or something with all my friends, both older and younger. Chloe is much younger than me; hell, she's younger than my sister. She's cool to hang with, but every so often, I just want to remind her take better care of herself. Eat real food, not just smoothies. Get some damn sleep. Move out of the crap hole you're living in. Yeah, I guess I am Team Mom or Team Big Sis or something.

I could fall the fuck to sleep right where I'm sitting, but I need to get some more words done for #365k/365Day. I'm running a little bit behind for the day, even if I am ahead overall. Overall, I'm at 24,028 words for the total. So, while I am ahead, I'm trying to stay ahead.

Also, Chloe made the best damn face when I mentioned the #365k/365Day challenge. Like 'why would you do that to yourself'. Because I'm crazy. I am a crazy, crazy lady. Obviously.

So, here's a random list of some of the various things I've researched over the past week or so:
*History of icing (for cakes)
*What kind of food was served at dinner parties in the 1850s
*If someone is sick or bedridden, will a priest deliver Ash Wednesday ashes to them?
*When did people start using iodine for cuts and scrapes
*Opium and laudanum in the 19th century
*How domestic violence in the 19th century was handled
*Best handguns for left-handed shooters
*Spanish diminutives for various names
*...and some very, very raunchy French

Seriously, my research is all over the damn place... and I love it. I've been getting AO3 comments on the amount of research in Monstrous: After Midnight, and that makes my damn day every time. Especially when it's coming from archaeologists and anthropologists. And somehow I continue to be unable to spell 'archaeologist' unless I spell it the British way. WTF, brain?!

And this is hella long, so I'm gonna stop while I'm behind. Later, all.

apollymi: The Labyrinth goblins staring out of dark background, text reads "The goblins are out to get you" (Labyrinth**Goblins: Out to get you!)
I had hoped that I was done with Civil War research for stories, but nope. I finally got my hands on the deleted scenes from The Magnificent Seven, which definitively states Goody's regiment (the Louisiana Tigers, 9th Louisiana Infantry), so I'm having to go back and check and change things. Thankfully it's not as many changes as it could have been. I'm glad for that at least.

Still, I'm so tired of researching.

NaNoWriMo Day 26

Saturday, 26 November 2016 03:50 pm
apollymi: Pissed off Vasquez, no text (Mag7**Vasquez: Angry)
Well, writing is still ongoing, though now that I'm over the finish line it's not going nearly as quickly as it had been before. But it's still going, and that's what counts, rights? Words. Words are good.

Random babbling about various verses )

And my little quiet spot has become considerably less quiet since an entire family has set up shop on the chairs opposite mine and the other end of my couch. I'm not sure how much writing I'm actually going to get done at this point.

So I guess I'm just going to go read and see if they'll leave some time soon, so I can get some work done. Here's the most up to date word count:

53411 / 50000 words. 107% done!

NaNoWriMo Day 17

Thursday, 17 November 2016 03:02 pm
apollymi: Chapter 301 of manga, redeeming power of love, text reads "Even Kyo and Yuya get shojo sparkles" (SDK**Kyo/Yuya: Shojo sparkles?)
We got most of the results from Roo's blood tests back today. His hemocrit (iron) levels were up, from 11% two weeks ago to 22% today, so that's a marked improvement. 29% to 40% is where he needs to be sitting, though, so there is still room for improvement. His white cell count is down from 40,000 two weeks ago, to 18,000 yesterday, so that's also a pretty huge improvement. The vet would like the count to be closer to 12,000, though, for Roo's age. It will take until next week for the result's of his urine to come back in, but he didn't seem to anticipate anything untoward showing up there. That was one test we were not able to get a fortnight ago, because Roo refused to pee for them, so they'll have nothing to compare it against.

He is refilling the steroid for Roo for another couple of weeks, and I think I already said that he's refilling the antibiotic. We will finish up with the appetite enhancer that we already have but not refill it. He wants us to keep feeding Roo whatever he'll eat, as much of it as he'll eat, in order to keep putting weight back on him. Like I think I said before, his weight was up yesterday, from 8.3 pounds two weeks ago to 10.5 or 10.8 (depending on which of the two times they weighed him) yesterday, but he wants to see Roo closer to the 12 pound range, if not 13.

So that's one huge load off my shoulders. One less thing to stress about, I suppose. Though I probably won't be relaxing completely until we get the urinalysis results back next week. It's still good news either way.

I'm coming along nicely on my NaNoWriMo project, though admittedly not on the one that I originally signed up for. I even went in today and changed my novel page to reflect this. I'll working on the rewrites for Endless Loop one of these days, but I don't think it's going to be this particular NaNoWriMo. Not with the way The Magnificent Seven is eating my soul. I'm going to be lucky to get any work done on anything else at all with the way these boys keep chatting at me.

Current writing stats and updates )

And that's about all I've got for today. I will, as always leave off with an up to date (as of 3:00 PM EST) word count:

36779 / 50000 words. 74% done!


Saturday, 2 April 2016 01:33 pm
apollymi: Manic look Ninth Doctor, text reads "I solemnly swear I'm up to no good" (DW**9th Doctor: Up to no good)
Day two of Camp. I guess I'm doing okay. I got going with the writing from the second possible opening I had, using Rose as a narrator (instead of the other option that had used Izzy instead), and it's working pretty okay. I did find out that the rifle I had researched earlier in the week actually had a drop rate that was too low for what I needed, so I ended up having to find something else, which took a wee bit more research.

Yes, [personal profile] daimeryan_rei, I am terrible at cutting off the research bug. It's a known fault, though.

But like I said, I'm doing fairly okay. I'm not quite where I need to be to end the month on time, but I'm still making some progress.

And for what it's worth, I'll leave you with this: the counter for the month.

717 / 15000 words. 5% done!


Friday, 1 April 2016 02:30 pm
apollymi: Trunks staring off in the middle distance, no text (DBZ**Trunks: Sentinel)
It's day one of Camp NaNoWriMo April Edition. I should be writing. I actually have around 80 something words, which isn't too bad for how distracted I am today, but I'm going to need about 500 a day to reach my minimum goal. I have two possible places to start the story, and I have three definite characters and a fourth possible. I've done a lot of the research I'm going to need ahead of time -- including the stuff I have to know but don't really want to research, like guns, ammo, the prevalence of both, and so forth -- and all that happy nonsense... but that's not where my brain is.

No, my brain is currently stuck on the fact that it wants a proper sweet British biscuit. And despite that, I had to look up the ones I was wanting. My brain was insisting the name for what I wanted was Jammy Dodgers, but those were a different biscuit/cookie. It's a Jaffa Cake that I'm wanting. And all this started because a fic I was reading mentioned Tim Tams, which are delicious, but another creature altogether... and not even British besides. (They're Australian, and they're made of awesome.) But no, my brain wants Jaffa Cakes, and I don't even know where to get them in this town yet. I haven't had a craving for them since we left Tallahassee. That was the last time I had them as well. So who the hell knows? Not I.


Friday, 30 October 2015 12:31 pm
apollymi: Stitch lying on the beach with a lei, text reads "I like fluffy" (L&S**Stitch: I like fluffy)
I feel like something of a creeper with some of the searches I have going on Ripley right now. There needs to be a pharmacology website for writers. Barring that, there should be a text for writers where medical-grade, street-grade, and OTC drugs are concerned. Yes, a hardcopy version would be out of date by the time it made it to press, but it would be better than nothing, right?

I'm trying to find a drug that would induce unconsciousness in less than an hour, can be added to food or drink, and is relatively safe for a woman who is pregnant. Such a thing might not exist, one that meets all three qualifications. Two out of three, though? Rohypnol actually hits two out of three, with a risk of low birth weight and lack of muscle tone in fetuses. It's taken me an hour to find that amount of information, though.

Basically, I just don't want to hit the Instant Sedation trope after all.

So yeah, there needs to be a resources where you can ask experts in various fields for help with writing accuracy. Barring that, there should be a database where you can put in the information you're looking for and it turns up better search results than Google is currently giving me. I stand by my previous statement: there needs to be a pharmacology website for writers. Actually, there needs to be a medical and pharmacology website for writers.

That is all.
apollymi: Chaucer looking annoyed, text reads "I will eviscerate you in fiction" (AKT**Chaucer: Eviscerate you in fiction)
I just had to yell at Roo about having nipple radar. He always manages to get me right exactly on the nipple with the kitty shanks of love. It's not that bad if I'm, you know, wearing layers and have something in between his claws, but when I'm just doing the pajama top, well... Yeah, it leads to me yelling at Roo about his damn nipple radar. He doesn't even blink at the yelling; he never has once. I don't get it. I just don't.

I'm sitting here in my computer chair, trying my best not to breathe too hard. I don't know what I did, but the side of my stomach is sore like I've been exercising particularly hard... except where I haven't been. I don't know. I just don't even know.

Katsuko and I tried our write-in at Panera today, after a busy day of running around town trying to keep her mind off the shit at work mentioned in the last entry. I might have even splurged a bit today and bought her a phone case like she's been looking for: black and orange, the colors for her favorite baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles.

As for the write-in, though, I will admit that my mind was so not on it. I managed some three hundred words. After that, I started being all over the place looking at stuff: what kind of bed is bigger than a California King (apparently, a Texas King or Super King), where could we get soba for dinner (I ended up cooking it), recipes for a good broth to go with soba (I totally made up my own), where to buy drinking grade matcha powder in the Atlanta area, how Katsuko could change the default program to open certain files on her computer, does EBooks-Tree have any of my works under any of my names (nope), is Turner Entertainment hiring (yes)... and then I started working on a prettier, more creative version of my resume... which I'm still working on. I'm even working on a Prezi version of it, if that says anything to anyone.

And I guess that's about all I have to say for myself for today. I wish I had done more writing, but I'm apparently way too all over the place for that today, so that didn't really happen (and I'm falling further and further behind). I do still have some catch up time built in to my tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday mornings, since Katsuko has doubles on those days.

But anyway, here's the word count for the day, which isn't as great as I had been hoping for, but not as bad as it has been being:

10725 / 30000 words. 36% done!
apollymi: Carl holding bottle of holy water, text from Monty Python & the Holy Grail (VH**Carl: Holy hand grenade)
So I'm running behind still on my Camp NaNoWriMo project. I started the day with 4125 words, when I needed to have at least 6,666 words. So, yeah, there's a bit of a deficit going there. To be where I need to be in order to be completely caught up by the end of tonight, I need to have written at least 8,333 words by the end of the evening... or just over 4100 words. I don't exactly foresee that one happening, but it's certainly not going to stop me from trying to get caught up.

I am having hypothetical conversations with Roo and [personal profile] katsuko about where Roo stands on a Hobbit-y scale of cuteness. The three of us have arrived upon the following order: Merry, Roo, Pippin, Frodo, and Sam. Don't ask me to rate the other kittens in this scale, because I'm not sure I want to even try to figure that one out... and if I don't place Jimi above Merry, things might get ugly.

For shits and giggles, [personal profile] katsuko and I just finished rewatching The Ballad of GI Joe... because it is in many, many ways superior to the live action movies... with the exception of the first movie having Christopher Ecclestone. Because I need me some Nine every now and then, even if he usually plays a villain. Hells, I dragged [personal profile] katsuko and [personal profile] desolate03 to see The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising solely because Chris Ecclestone was in it, if that says anything, given the relative suck levels of that movie.

The pinched nerve is still ridiculously painful, but I'm persevering through on it. It just really, really sucks that it's located in a place that I can't really get the heating pad until I'm willing to do some pretty amazing contortions and risk hurting myself further. It still hurts to turn my head too far to the left, which continues to make changing lanes difficult, but I'm toughing things out as best I can.

Also, I seem to have hit enter in the wrong place, so this entry is posted before it's done. I will be editing it to add this last little bit and my word count for the day.

Finally, my research for the day included: Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), loft layouts, and keyboard cases for the LG GPad 8.3.

So, yeah, here's that word count:

5452 / 50000 words. 11% done!

Not last minute

Saturday, 3 May 2014 03:41 pm
apollymi: Cup of coffee, pen, and written on paper, text reads "Writer" (My Writing: Writer)
Today's entry will not be super last minute, like posting two minutes before Panera closes or something. Mind you: that's at least in part because I'm at home today until 4:15 or so, since I don't have to be at work until 5:00. I just did lunch (reheating the last of the Indian leftovers), and now I'm just sort of killing time until it's time to go get ready to go to work. My feet finally feel more or less recovered, and though I do still have the blisters, they're not nearly as fluid-filled, so that's a very good thing for a five hour shift. I actually feel a little cruddy today, with my stomach all over the place, but I need to get my schedule for next week and that's why I'm going in.

I'm in the process of releasing the next chapter of Crooked Way into the wild. This chapter has been done for some time: well over a week and probably closer to two. I started it on 20 April, if that says anything. I just don't feel like it's being enjoyed as much as I feel like it should be, and if people aren't reading it, what's the point of putting it online? I can keep writing and let Katsuko read it if there isn't enough interest in it online. Or at least quit posting it on FFnet and just do it here on Dreamwidth and (eventually) on

Gods, I'm so far behind in updating My last fanfiction update to the site was in January... which really sucks, since I've written so much since then. Yes, mostly in April, but still!

Still brainstorming on new story )

And now that I've brainstormed all that, I am running behind. I need to post Crooked Way to and [community profile] eternal_sailorm, and I need to crosspost it to [community profile] 24hourthemes. I need to get ready for work and hoof my way over to the bus stop. So much to do, so little time.

Trying not to stress

Friday, 2 May 2014 09:58 pm
apollymi: Duo and Heero back to back, text reads "Together" (GW**Duo/Heero: Together)
I'm trying very hard not to be all stress-y today/tonight. It's not very easy, mind you. I don't want to go to work tomorrow, and the only reason I'm going to is so that I can get my schedule for next week. I didn't get a paycheck today, so it's going to be at least next Friday at this point. I seriously doubt that there is a paper check waiting for me at CVS.

I've been writing today on Crooked Way... but part of me wants to start playing on another original 'verse. Katsuko has pointed out that there aren't a lot of fantasy (or urban fantasy) novels out there with a female protagonist where there isn't a romantic subplot. It challenges me. I want to make it happen. All I have so far, though, is a name for my protagonist: Cassandra "Cassie" Devereux.

And I think they're closing Panera again now, so I'd better bugger off to Movie Tavern.


Writing day

Tuesday, 8 April 2014 06:59 pm
apollymi: Hudson freaking out, text reads "Game over, man. Game over". I find this completely realisitc for the situation (Aliens**Hudson: Game over man! Game ove)
So I’ve managed a fairly decent writing day here at Panera Bread. The only thing I've been working on is Betrüger. I've tried to call Georgia Perimeter College to see what the status of the job there is, but I remain unable to reach the HR person I would need. I've also tried again to reach Emory University's Human Resources, and I've had no luck there either, which sucks all around.

I feel like I need to mention the tabs I have open, in addition to the usual ones. The usual ones are my Dreamwidth friends page, my LiveJournal friends page, my Apollymi gmail, my Katherine at email,, and Feedly. In addition to those, I also have open: this journal entry with links to how characters in the Familiars series look, Camp NaNoWriMo for updating my word count, and then a series of mythological entries on Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Mythica. Those are: Ninurta, Nergal, Perun, Ra, The Wild Hunt, Valhalla, Fólkvangr, Gwynn ap Nudd, and Annwn. That collection might say something about the writing I'm doing. It might also say something about how difficult I'm finding this chapter story to be.

I might have a chapter to show for myself tomorrow or Thursday, but I can't say for certain. I didn't get to go down for Grandfather's 82nd birthday over the weekend, so while Katsuko has two days off (tomorrow and Thursday), I'm doing a whirlwind visit. I do mean whirlwind too: I'm leaving no later than 9 in the morning, driving 3 hours down, staying the night, and should be back in the Atlanta area by 8 p.m. Thursday. I'm probably going to hit rush hour traffic going and coming, so who knows when I'll be actually arriving anywhere. Apparently, Hayden and Mum will be missing tennis practice to come have dinner with me, Grandmother, and Grandfather tomorrow night, but that might be the extent of extra visiting that gets to happen.

I will be taking Ripley, though, so that I can get as much writing done as I can while I'm gone. I don't want to get too far behind. I'm staying right about where I need to be, but it's not easy this time. I'm not having any overages yet. In fact, this is where I'm at:

I need to do at least another 1000 words today. More would, of course, be better. Not fucking off 'til it's done, though, so we'll see what happens.

And now, yeah, I think it's time for me to throw myself back into writing. Later, all.


Monday, 17 February 2014 11:27 pm
apollymi: Chococat sitting in an orange chair, no text (Sanrio**Chococat: This is my ROOM!)
So... I wrote. Not a lot. Not as much as I had been hoping to, but I did end up with almost 500 words done between two stories: Street Angel and a new idea I've been tossing about to do collaboratively with Katsuko. (Or rather Ellie Hicks do with Kari Bishop, but same diff, right?) I'm not sure how to go about doing a summary of it. Maybe once I have a bit more written. I've been bouncing ideas off Katsuko ever since she got home, and I'm tightening the story focus thanks to it, but it still has a long way to go. It's an interesting thing, though. Maybe if I can get her to summarize it instead, because I'm not sure how well my description would make sense...

Other than that, it's been a fairly quiet day. I've been working on plotting for this story, I wrote on this story, I took a nap on the couch that gave me the opening bit for this story, I went on Pinterest to try to find fantasy guys for this story (in vain)... so yeah, plotting or writing has been big on the brain most of the day today. I've ranted about this before, but there is a dearth of male fantasy art. If there are guys, they tend to be either elves or pumpin' 'roids. I haven't even picked out names for my two main male characters yet, because I'm still trying to sort out what they will look like in my head.

Honestly, I'm using Legend of the Cryptids art to try to come up with something to use for the guys... and I'm sort of striking out. Will be continuing. Hopefully more words tomorrow too. Laters.


Sunday, 2 February 2014 04:07 pm
apollymi: Bakura & Kaiba fanart commission, text reads "Apollymi" (Stock: Tea Party)
I did almost 600 words last night on the Shiara's Dozen story, so it's coming along nicely. That's a good thing, I'm thinking. I did end up spending half an hour looking up what kinds of revolvers were popular in the 1880s United States... because I know what Hollywood says, but I wanted something a bit more accurate than Hollywood (because Hollywood also insists that Mare's Leg rifles existed and apparently they didn't or at least weren't common). I went with a Colt Single Action Army .44 caliber "Henry" revolver... because I know a wee bit more about Colts than I do the other gun manufacturers at the time. And yes, that's solely thanks to Supernatural. I had had hopes of writing more last night than that, but research got in the way of that. I'll make it up tonight or tomorrow.

I did spend a good hour or so yesterday building an Excel spreadsheet for Katsuko and I to record our weight loss adventures on. I created it for weight, several measurements (waist, hips, thighs, forearms, wrists, neck), and some calculations (BMI and Waist/Hip ratio). I couldn't convince the formulas to let me calculate body fat %, so we'll have to get that from, which isn't a huge hardship, because that will also let me double-check my work. All that said, I haven't weighed or measured yet for the day, but then all I've had so far today has been some hot chocolate, so hopefully it's not too far off. I'm not too far from hungry, though, so I'm going to be doing it soon and seeing if I can't also had graphs of progress once there's data. Apparently, this is what I do with my free time.

And yeah, that's about it. TIme to move the couch and get out the Wii balance board and be seriously disappointed.
