Somehow today is Day 162 of my ongoing 750 words project. I'm not sure how that happened. What's weirder: I'm not sure if I'm confused if it's only 162 days or that it's already 162 days. Weird, huh?
I finally have Katsuko next to me reading Firelight
. I finished Cold Days
(the fourteenth Dresden Files
book) late yesterday, though, so I'm at a bit of loose ends as far as reading is concerned. I'm actually now just rereading Shadowdance
, rather than go through my books to find a new something to read.
That is to say, that's what I'm doing when I'm conscious. I got up at 7:30 this morning to feed the demonling kitties and went back to bed. Katsuko got me up at 12:30; otherwise, I think I might have just kept on sleeping. I managed to stay awake until around 4:30, until I laid back down for a nap... which Katsuko got me up from around 7:30. In that first long bout of awake time, I took a hot soaking bath with some of my Ceridwen's Cauldron
, my LUSH splurge purchase from my birthday. It felt really nice, but my tub is so small that I can't really soak all the parts of me that need soaking. If I get my legs in to soak, then my back has to be nearly up straight; if I get my back in, then I just about have to put my legs up on the wall, plus I have all this hair, which doesn't cooperate with staying out of the water most of the time.
Anyway, yeah, I soaked, and I've slept a lot of today away. I still feel really cruddy, though, and my head is just throbbing. I'm taking some Excedrin Migraine right now, and hopefully that will do something to stem it off before it gets any worse. Katsuko is making us some snacks, and I might eventually get off my arse and make us some dinner... if I don't just go back to bed. I have several AO3 story links open, though, so I'm going to try to stay awake to reread all of them... because they're all stories I've read and enjoyed before. I might even take a while to sporfle over a Supernatural
fanfic I enjoy, one of the few Dean/Castiel ones I still reread: The Fourth Wall
. Other things I'm rereading from: The Bourne Legacy
, The Avengers
, crossovers of the above two, Push
crossed over with The Avengers
, and so on.
I still have some 330 words to go, and I'm not sure I have words for them. I'll come up with something, of course, because I always do, but I haven't the foggiest what they will be, what I will babble about next.
My dragons are still good. I'm trying very hard to get a predatory dragon, but it is just not cooperating. It's the rarest of the first batch of dragons, and it's just a matter of chance and luck to get one. I've been trying for the last several days, and I will continue to keep trying until I manage to get myself one. The wikia speaks briefly about pairing a leveled up +rare Fire Dragon with a +rare Grass Dragon together to get one. I have a +10% rare Fire Dragon, Fate, that I keep pairing with a +5% rare Grass Dragon, Myrandr. They keep giving me Fruit Dragons and Spring Dragons, though. But according to the wikia, the options are those four: Fruit, Spring, Flower, Predatory, with a slight chance of breeding another Grass Dragon back out of the mix too. Getting each of the first batch of dragons is worth a couple of prize points, which is why I'm still trying it.
Let's see. I still need to acquire the following dragons from the first batch: Predatory. From the second batch, I still need the following: Steam, River, Swamp, Coral, and Ferocious. From the third batch, I still need: Rock, Rain, Desert, Dandelion, Chinese, Butterfly, and Agile.
I'm debating on giving up on the Predatory Dragon for now, and just focus on the myriad others I still need to get. I can always come back to it. It is, after all, one of the rarer dragons, so I might be a while in getting one. Once Myrandr and Fate get out of the Breeding Cave this time, I'll let them have a break. It's time to start sending my Water Dragon, Ariel, in for a while and start getting some of those second batch dragons out of the way. Third batch will entail getting Pandei and Keres, my two Air Dragons, to play nice with other dragons.
And yet again, I've managed to get to 750 words, mainly by talking about books and dragons again. Go, me?
