Afternoon to y'all.

Spent the morning working on the house - living in a house my parents are renovating, and they removed the chimney, so I'm stacking bricks. Good workout, actually; I lost an inch doing it. 57'' is a horrible waistline size, but it beats the hell out of 58'': 56 and no or bust next week, here's hoping.

Applying for some jobs! Going to the farmer's market with a stack of resumes this weekend, hoping to snag a job as a cook for a prepackaged food company or as a farmhand. Wish me luck, guys.

Last weekend, spent some time with [livejournal.com profile] universal_queen, Feyna, Henry and Ben - Bliss Stage game, plus shit-shooting and dinner. Made spaghetti with pesto cream sauce - always a winner - and fried some fish, which... didn't work as well. Next time, Elli, deep fry: don't half-ass it.

And speaking of Bliss Stage - those just tuning in, I've been tapped for a fan-project, a Visual Novel for PC's (and Macs, come to that). I mentioned that I might want to post some Interludes from same, and...

Well, I still do, but I'd like to structure it as if it were a rough play-through of the game. Not at this site: I'd like it to be a little more... uh... secure. But at another site.

If you'd be interested in being part of this... shall we call it a Let's Write? Then post here, and I'll invite you to the site.

Life happens.

I'm re-enrolling in classes, taking out a student loan - this is pretty much the best way to ensure that I have money and regular computer access at this point, and in the future. That combined with continuing to look for clerical and data entry work.

Taking creative writing classes on the grounds that it will force me to do creative writing, at least 1/3 of which will not be Bliss Stage related.

Speaking of which, the VN chugs along. I am hoping we can get something out in time for Anime Conji in April (http://www.animeconji.org/), because I'm holding some games there (http://www.animeconji.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=37). Including but not limited to the infamous Katawa Stage; I'm rewriting it to be less LULZ DATING SIM INJOKES (specifically, I'm making Hisao a Rising Hero with an actual codified stat block, rather than the stupid trick where he's a Devoted Lover with a 5/3 to be assigned); AstraKiseki rightly pointed out that "no one cares."

On a related note, I really need to get some Bliss Stage cosplay going for that. Planning on going as VN!Josh Preston, Kenji, and/or (Gurren Lagaan's) Viral, Marketing. Should be fun.

I can also probably hold Bliss Stage games online for people; in fact I intend to.

Mentlegen. You can haz mind virus.

Here's how it works.

Stat your current Bliss, Trauma, and relationships to four people on your friends-list in terms of Intimacy, Trust and Stress, in Bliss Stage game terms.

Then ask those people to do the same.

Note - I will not be held responsible for the fallout when you reveal an Intimacy 5 ('we had sex to get closer') relationship to someone who doesn't want that to be public knowledge. Pick who you're statting accordingly.

Bliss: 45
Trauma: 1

Alextfish: 3/3. (Ask me about the great ChiarkPerson Bliss Stage Flame War sometime! TL;DR he defended my position and helped me calm down.)

BenLehman: 2/5. (As near as I can tell. He made me think a game called Hot Guys Making Out would be worth playing. Protip: It is.)

BlackBlueSock: 3/2. (That one Trust Break was a bitch, but our apologies was made. Yay game-naive Bliss Stage players who pwn their first game.)

Tigerbunny: 3/3-2. (Passionate arguments about the characterization of VN characters. Still working on finding that copy of Ze Contract. Might have been buried in the Great Room Clean-Up. Sorry...)

Or anyone else who would like to be in two open slots?

They just met another Resistance unexpectedly.

Not children, mind. Another Resistance.

There's an NPC pilot called Asha Remar, controlled by me. Her battles are not your Resistance's battles, so the fact that she is a pilot does not make her a Pilot.

(She is ENTIRELY a riff off of the game Iji, by the way. Her chassis is her Anchor and brother Daniel Remar, and is a nanomolecular cybernetic frame. Her other manifestations are weapons in the reconfigurable man-portable nanogun she affectionately refers to as 'Cannon.')

All I ask is that the APPEARANCE of your character and thier ANIMa is a riff off of a video game, either from the 8 bit, 16 bit, or Indie Retro eras.

Pic unrelated. Sort of.

Veronica called me. Very nice convo - she's calling me tonight. Hoping to see her in the week she's recovering, it being my spring break and all. I'll see if she can pledge some financial assistance in that: I'm saving up myself.

I do rather like St. Valentine's day (and the story of St. Valentine), so long as you remember not to make it more serious or complicated than it is. Just a day to honor romantic love - not OMG MUST BUY CHOCOLATES AND ROSES AS DRAGONFODDER. I understand the reason why it's such a hated holiday, though - my friend Li-Chi calls it Singles Awareness Day for a reason, and the commercialism made of it makes me gag. But I like the reminder to connect and re-connect the holiday provides.

I now have a writerly urge, and want to do comic book scripts for a lighthearted Action/Romance/Comedy thing I'm calling Neon Veda Bodhisattva, at the mo, because the basic idea in my head was "like Evangelion off crack."

If you don't care about Neon Veda, then why click the link? )

In other news, Dad is going to New Orleans tomorra night on Serious Business. I am envious. Chocolatefrapp, if you can reccommend him a good restaurant, please do.

And how was your St. Vals, everyone?

I live.

Taking advanced cooking classes at Laney at the moment, and looking for a new job.

I very badly want to run Bliss Stage for friends of mine, including my LJ friends - what are good days and times to do so? Or for general mucking about. I want to see Waltz With Bashir, among other things, and would rather do so with friends.

Oh, and shameless plug moment: Dad, in case you didn't know, works for Greater Good magazine - a magazine about the psychology and neurology of ethical behavior. Reporting on groundbreaking reasearch on why people are good, essentially - our emotional wiring, trust, and so on. You should check it out.
