Chapter 5, Page 35on December 11, 2014 at 10:08 am
Well, that’s one way to shed a little quick weight. 🙂
Up at 2 a.m. again. You know me, I’ll finish the page or die trying! Occasionally both!
I hate to be a douche here, but I have to delay update until next Thursday. I wouldn’t normally, but I am trying to get my anthology pages done, and it is truly going to be a photo finish, even without the additional Chat work.
UPDATE: I had to request a two-day extension to get the anthology contribution done. I’ve pulled near all nighters for both and will put the finishing touches on it at work before submitting. I’ve slept about six hours in two days. 5 Hour Energy is mankind’s greatest invention to date and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Chat updates on Monday.
Heh! *Lolo*, for all her sarcasm and nastiness, is now terrified. I can’t think of a more deserving demon 🙂
Take your time finishing, polishing, and perfecting the anthology pages.
I’m more than willing to wait.
And DO not kill yourself just to finish a page. I want to read the end of the story!
And, smart move, Lolo. Flight reflexes often include emtying the body to reduce weight and improve fleeing performances.
(And where will Lolo run? Will he get help to catch and kill the celestial?)
*Will _s_he get help…
I really need to pay attention to genders… :p
I’m not a fan of gendered pronouns. Go ahead and call Lolo “he” and maybe the idea will catch on and English will lose its gendered pronouns the same way it lost its t-v distinction— thanks to lack of usage, “she” will fall out of the dictionary the same way “thou” did centuries ago.
I’d rather see “he” and all the other “masculine” pronouns vanish, and everyone be called “she” and “her”. Example: “In tonight’s headlines, Vladimir Putin stunned the world by announcing that she would put an end to all Russian military activity in the Ukraine. Upon hearing this, the leader of ISIL ate a ham sandwich and had herself beheaded.”
That works too, but “he” was what Krulle gave me so I ran with it.
I was just trying to correct myself.
and, no, I am not a fan of the discussions either, but I also do not want to lose the differentiation. Referring language is much easier if you can distinguish. In many Germanic languages we have three genders… (he, she, it), and I work in a field where the use of them can greatly improve the readability and understandability.
I am definitely not a fan of referring to a mass of people as “hes and shes”. In plural I use the male form, except if it is a purely female group.
Most languages use it that way, and I will not change that just because of “political correctness”. That term is a curse.
Sleep well then!
I wish you a very restful weekend!
Do what you’ve got to do – we’ll wait. Meantime, Happy Hanukkah!
