Okay, So Maybe I’m Slacking Here

Hi Internet People,

I did mean to write something up for today, but that didn’t happen. I spent most of Thursday night working on my brain recipe for next week and then with a work out and shower my evening got a tick eaten up. I don’t know how much I’ll have written up here next week either, only because it is going to be a pretty busy video week.

Lucifer is back on Monday, WOOOO!!!!, and that means a video is back in the rotation. With the set up for videos that I have it looks like I’ll have stuff on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Then Tuesdays will still be iZombie day so there’s going to be a pretty intensive set up for the week. I’m not complaining, I just might have even less time to post on here. I’ve been trying to do some updates, but I haven’t had too much going on outside of work and NGE work.

I am very excited though because Free Comic Book Day is coming! I have to go to a work event, but I’m going to get up super early and go wait in line really early to get comics. Conveniently everything is downtown so I can just walk from the store to the event. I was really hoping to go to Table Top Day this week, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to work out. Just bad timing on my part. Oh well, it still should be a fun weekend. I’ll try and post a bit more next week, but it might randomly drop off. I’ll try though!

Big Day!

Hi Internet People,

Okay, so today is a big day. I was going to write about this over the weekend, but I was a bit busy. I had a work event on Saturday that sort of ate up most of my day and I was exhausted on Sunday and slept for most of it. I also had some NGE stuff to edit up and some food things to work on. With no real weekend time to chat on here I thought I’d get this up on Monday.

This isn’t anything super long, but I have a job interview today. Now I like my current job, I’ve actually talked about liking it on here before, but I have to be ready to get another one. The contract is only 11 months and may or may not be renewable, there’s some complicated government funding stuff involved. What this means is I need to try and find a steady job, with benefits. It just so happens the place I’m at now is higher a position and I have an interview scheduled for later today. I’m hoping it goes well and I really want this job. My interview suit is prepped and ready and I already got approval to leave work a bit early. I’m coming back after the interview so it’s basically acting as my lunch break, just a bit later in the day.

Wish me luck everyone and I hope I can share some good news soon!

Random Story Idea

Hi Internet People,

I know there wasn’t any Witch House writing this week, but I’ve been mulling around an idea. You can totally blame Penny Dreadful’s introduction of Dr. Jekyll for this one. I sort of have a mild obsession with the idea of duality, I mean my favorite movie is Fight Club after all. I’ve just always been interested in the idea of someone being two people or having two diverse sides to their personality. This might be because I have a tendency to act in two very different ways when I’m in social situations. At work and at some social events, I’m closed off and very direct. I don’t express emotion very much, but when I do I’m very reserved. Online and when I’m with close friends or in situations where I feel comfortable I am bubbly, expressive, loud, basically I act like my actual self. In Fight Club the narrator is more reserved, while Tyler is crass and does whatever he pleases without worrying about the consequences. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are a bit like that, though depending on the version Mr. Hyde can be truly evil and murderous.

I have always wished that there was a female equivalent to Fight Club, yes Black Swan has elements, but it doesn’t exactly fit, and this week after seeing Dr. Jekyll in Penny Dreadful I had a thought. I kept kicking around the idea of one woman secretly being two women. Alright so hear me out, the focus of the story would be someone who is kind of a wallflower, she doesn’t really put herself out there, but her work does a big mixer event and she gets convinced to go. She doesn’t mind her job and would like a raise so she thinks fine, I’ll be socially active and look involved and maybe I’ll get a promotion. She goes to this bar, it’s pretty nice, very laid back urban professional feel, and while she’s there she meets a woman. This other woman doesn’t seem to fit at all. She’s in like leather pants or something much more suited to a standard dive bar. Our main character is surprised to see someone like that at this place where everyone is sort of business casual and most of them have just come from the nearby office buildings. She can’t help, but sneak glances at this woman and eventually the leather clad woman calls her out for staring, it’d be a sly pickup line sort of thing, like hey buy a girl a drink first or something. The two strike up a conversation, but before things go very far, the woman in leather pants says she has to go. Before she does she asks for our main character’s phone. She puts her number in and says to shoot her a text some time.

Now our nervous main character winds up texting within a few hours, something sets it in motion, and the two meet again. They go out to a different bar, much more leather pants woman’s speed and spend the night chatting. Eventually they wind up going back to her place and much like in Fight Club they’ll move in together, though I’m thinking they move into the plush young business professional place. They only ever spend time together at night, though that isn’t odd they both work during the day and on the weekends the main character sleeps pretty late in the day while the other woman is at work. I’m not thinking giant underground guerilla organization style Fight Club, but I keep thinking it would be interesting if our main character was secretly ruining the company she works for, like leaking their secrets to the press or syphoning money into random accounts, something very corporate espionage. It turns out the other woman, who is also her, is somehow trying to make her life better. She’s there to make her happier and to help her achieve all she ever wanted, but in order to do that she needs to get her away from her corporate job. It’s not fully planned out, but the idea kept popping into my head and needed to put it down somewhere.
