Where I Haz Been (& Consolation Music)

If I've seemed a little more absent than usual this week, I apologize, but life has been insane. I normally blog at work, but we're getting new carpet and paint next week and I've been trying to get the files ready for boxing - which has been impossible because I've been so busy with general work! I barely have enough time to respond on Twitter - don't even ask how many unread emails I have. T.T

The major time-consumer this week has been putting the final touches on Project SS12 for the contest (which has to be mailed Monday or else). This included a complete re-write Tuesday/Thursday and shopping it out last-minute to several writer friends for comments (thank you to everyone who read it for me!). It's almost finished - I polish up the final draft tomorrow. I'm just thankful it's only 2,400 words - last year I was two pages over the limit and had to take a cleaver to over 100 words. It wasn't pretty. *shudder*

I've also been preparing for a special something that finally goes down today (my Super Special Surprise ;). I'll post about soon, but if you want a hint, click here!

I have lots still to do today, so I close this post with a consolation for my absence - this is the latest song from one of my favorite artists, Imogen Heap, called Xizi She Knows. Imogen is very hands-on with her music, and for her upcoming album she's been traveling the world and writing a song about her experiences in each place. This time it was China, and even though I wasn't initially impressed with this song it totally grew on me and now I'm addicted to it (I have it on Repeat right now). I especially like the dancing girl in the paper factory at the end - she looks so graceful and magical in such a mechanic setting. Take a look, and a listen, and I'll be back soon!


  1. Really cool video! I like Imogen Heap, but I'm not as familiar with her stuff as I'd like to be.

    And, you're welcome again. ;) Thanks for returning the favor! Good luck! ^^

  2. I look forward to hearing how the contests go! And the video was very pretty. I liked the dancing girl at the end too. So many graceful movements.
