Monday is coming too soon. :(

*sigh* I'm soo not ready for this weekend to be over. It's been a nice weekend where I mostly relaxed but also got things done, like vacuuming and buying bedside tables.

I also finished a podfic today that I'll hopefully be able to post soon. I found myself oddly nervous asking the author for permission. I guess this is the first podfic I've had to ask permission on since I had to take that Star Trek one down and now I'm worried the author will say no. I really hope not since I think the podfic turned out really well and I can't wait to share it. Yay! The author just got back to me and it was a yes. :D Fic will be posted as soon as I find out how to pronounce the author's name. :S

I also did some work on (this is) not a statement although I feel less accomplished about that one. In my head I was already finished chapter 3. Turns out I'm only finished the first page of chapter 3 :-/ I tried to do some recording after dinner but first I was really off and stumbling all over the place, then the neighbours started playing music really loudly and I'm afraid that it was being picked up on the recording. If so, I got nothing tonight :(

Speaking of (this is) not a statement, I've noticed that in the AI podficing fandom it's not uncommon for people to post podfics as WIPs. I'll be honest it never really occurred to me before to post a podfic before it was done however I wonder if people would be interested in my doing so for this fic. I know that, even though I wish the podfics were complete, I still listen to the AI WIPs simply because there isn't that much podfic in the fandom and I need me some podfic. :P Also, posting it as a WIP would definitely motivate me to work on it faster and would make sure that I finish it.


In other, non-podfic news, I soooo don't want to go back to work tomorrow. I have a big mess waiting for me, which actually kept me up at night this weekend. :-/

In good news though, I'm going back to New York City in September! Only for a weekend by still! Vacation!

Oh, and as of June 30th, I've owned my house for a full year! Weird to believe that I've only been living with [ profile] kronos999 and [personal profile] diurnal_lee for about a year. It seems like forever. They're such awesome room mates ♥

Bathroom of Doom.

So, I totally haven't been around at all lately, and I'm probably not going to really be back for another couple weeks. But I just had to post about this because it's so depressing :(

I knew when I got my home inspection that I'd have to take a look at my main bathroom because the toilet didn't seem to be on properly. My father, who has been doing a lot of the fixing up of my house, doesn't do plumbing at all, so he waited until my uncle who has done bathrooms could come and help before looking at it.

Well, last night was the night and now I don't have a bathroom anymore :S:S:S:S:S

The tore up the floor, actually, they tore up about 4 floors, it looks like the previous owners decided it'd be better to just put a new floor on top of the old one plywood and all. The vanity, toilet and bathtub are all gone too. The flooring was rotted through all the way down so we're going to have to strip right down to the beams.

[info - personal] diurnal_lee it's a good thing you saw your room last weekend, because it's not too impressive now since it's got the bathtub, sink and toilet in it at the moment.

I was afraid something like this would happen, but everyone kept telling me that they didn't think the bathroom thing would be a big deal, so I was totally shocked to have it happen. I'm also getting really annoyed with my mom who wants me to totally replace everything in my bathroom. And while yes, it does make more sense to replace things like the bathtub and toilet while we've got it out, it doesn't mean I can afford it.

Today's The Big Day!!!

I've been up since 5 this morning!

So much to do. Right now I'm trying to set up phone and internet. And I'm cursing at Bell and Rogers. My parents use Bell, and I quite like their service, so they were my first choice for internet, but when I called in today I was told there's only limited service in my area. :( The best I can get is a package that has 2MB/s (which I could probably deal with) and 20GBs bandwidth (which I can't deal with).

Rogers seems to have better service in my area, but is way more expensive. :(

This sucks. I know that there have been some discussions about internet over on [info]ottawa so maybe I'll go check those out before making any decisions.
