Welcome whoever you are. Little announcement about how this place is run:

Finished to watch Game of Thrones today. What can I say? Books are marvelous and their marvelousness cannot be translated fully and without loss on tv-screen, but I think it's one of examples, when team which build the tv-show did incredible work and transported atmosphere and complicity of Martin's masterpiece with care that can satisfy any fan of ASOAIF and fit them in the tv-format enough that newcomers do not feel lost in that vast and tangled world, enjoy the show,  and run to buy books after season 1 finale 'cause waiting till season 2 is impossible.

 I'm drowning in research. I have most of the main characters fleshed out, fully outlined first act, fuzzy second and pretty developed setting. First couple of chapters are bouncing up and down in my head causing restlessness and occasional headache. But I still need to fully outline second and third act - or I'll dump NaNoWriMo again, I know, - minor chars, factions, history, political system, other background things that make story believable. Looks like I'd not be able to sit and actually write until November. Will it be funny if I find myself with great story and without any writing skill?

 Trying to deal with worksheets, schedules, various organizational systems and tips is a constant struggle. Some of them work but only to some extent or for a time. Nothing works permanently. I'd say "to hell with systems, they just do not work for me!" and be done, but problem is THEY DO WORK. While I follow some system and try to behave like adult responsible organized person, results actually are amazing. And I feel good and accomplished and... relax. After relaxing return to organized being is incredibly hard and requires a lot of tricks, persuasion and kicks in the head.

  Dear Diary,

I'm back on twitter, so I gonna keep my one-two sentence posts there. They aren't worthy you. If you want to make friends with that simple-minded thing go for http://twitter.com/#!/MiarDar.

Love, Toi.

 Renly and Loras casting and intrepretation are absolutely awful. It's done so much better in the book. :(

Cargo!

 Dear Diary,

"Cargo!" is the first game made by "Ice-Pick Lodge" I have no desire to put on my "shelf-of-honor"(I have "Pathologic" and two "Voids" on it though have no idea how the second one got there). Sad to say I deleted their new experiment from my hard drive after two very confused hours of very confused playing. I haven't done it earlier only because of "IT'SICEPICKLODGE!!!"-factor so I kept waiting for something brilliant and thoughtful to come up and blow all doubts away. Alas. Hope their next project will be more like the previous ones. 

P.S. "Psychonauts" deliver similar gameplay experience but do it so much better in many ways. WTF?..

Love, Toi.

Dear Diary,

Sorry I didn't pay adequate amount of attention to you. I have no excuses except that I'm incredibly lazy and forgetful. I promised myself to write every day but there always were more important or interesting  activities present. 

I have no idea why I at least managed to sit and write down this letter. But I went for a run this morning too - and I haven't done it for two years. So maybe it's a start of new shiny era of my life. Or quite possible that it is a fluke in perfectly functioning system of self-indulging and I'll return to you in six months or so. I bet on latter but miracles happen. Bye for now.

Love, Toi.

 Fallout:New Vegas is significantly better than original Fallout 3. It  reminds me about lovely first chapters of Fallout series I played and replayed many times. Obsidian did a great work and filled open big and atmospheric world of Fallout 3 with interesting stories, charismatic personalities and classic role-playing possibilities. Delicious meal in modern times of RPG-starvation, where Witcher 2 is the only other hope. Going to go and buy DVD for collection tomorrow. New Vegas definitely deserves to be bought.

P.S. Hardcore mod without DLC-packs rules.

New OS

 Installed Win7. Didn't expect anything remotely decent after disaster named Vista. Nevertheless I like it a lot. Maybe there are some hidden flaws but if things progress the same way I think it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

 Post-operational period is extremely irritating. Three days in bed, two weeks without any physical activity, two months outside free weights room. It's driving me mad 'cause I feel well. Really well. No pain, no discomfort, no weakness I was warned about. NOTHING. Like I didn't have that damn operation at all! My teeth bother me more. I want so much to pretend these restrictions do not exist and continue my now messed up training... but remaining bits of sanity protest. On the good side I have more time for NaNoWriMo and comp-activities. Let's start with installing new OS.

Received a message about NaNoWriMo preparation today. I didn't do any previous work on my "novel" last year. Maybe that's why I've quit after first 17 000 words. Pathetic result, so I'm going to do an awful lot of preparation this year and hope it'll work. Trying to write an outline now.

Step 1. One-sentence description:
"Hired detective follows missing girl's steps but supposedly simple case turns out much more mysterious and dangerous than he expected."

P.S. In desperate need of new mood theme. SPN, Doctor, Sherlock or good old Red Dwarf? Oh, tough choice.

Actually many things happen. And keep happening. Many important and challenging things that I do not give a damn about. I'm not disappointed or irritated about flow of events in my life. The problem is that I really do not have any emotion for them. And it's worse than nothing at all, 'cos in that case you can go and try to make things happen. Not a chance here. Even the oncoming operation - something I'm fairly sure I should care about however minor it's supposed to be - do exist in the list of everyday chores between "visit dentist" and "do laundry".

Spring dissapeared in hectic rush of events and faces, summer melted away with sun and laziness. Maybe autumn is time for apathy and stillness. But I really miss fever.

Didn't do anything in 2D at least a year. Simple warming-up.

I have fresh scratch on cheek and burn on left hand and no idea how I've got them. Slightly disturbing.

Moving in. Hope it'd be successful.
