Multiple Pointage  
Having unpacked, slept for the better part of two days, caught up on my email, sorted out the matters of the stolen passport (hopefully, I'll have a new one by the time I go back to the UK), seen my psychiatrist and read some fanfic, I feel half-way decent and more relaxed than in the last few weeks. I have even sorted out the school papers today and to my horro noticed that two assignments are missing. I'll search some more before I go email begging for someone to scan the sheets for me.

The doctor here at home is now finally convinced that stimulants are a good idea. 400mg in the morning lasts almost 12 hours. Only downside, it aggravates the not hungry/losing weight. Otherwise, felt definetly better (less exhausted, less med-achey and tired) today. It's just now in the evening that I'm feeling all medicated again.

I'm considering getting an ipod, either that or a new MiniDisc Player. My current MD-Player is pretty old and over time has lost its recording function. Warranty is long over. Since it no longer records, I'm limited to the songs that I have on minidisc which, considering my constantly growing mp3 collection isn't really satisfying. My minidisc collection has been dwindling for a while through natural wear and tear, boarding school communisim, theft, loss (?).

What do people who have / had an ipod say? Good experiences, bad experiences?

I have picked up fanfic writing again. I started a new story Never Mind for a challenge, but it's not flowing, it's all in chunks that just stick there and I have no idea about any satisfying ending. Also started on the 8th chapter of the worst fic I have ever written, aka Space Pirates, but it's bad in a fun way, I like writing it. It's one fic that I have never even pretended is good. While the actual Space Pirates don't appear too often the fic is as trashy as the title sounds.

Sometimes it's nice just to write for yourself, though, isn't it? What I've been working on for the last day or two may very well be crap, but I sort of like it, in its way, and I'm having a blast writing it. :)

That would be awesome. Someone could write CSI fic about a pirate sex group, because the CSI's only investigate kinky crimes these days. And I could write soapfic about pirates, because pirates aren't even ludicrous in soapland.

Now I think there needs to be a multi fandom pirates challenge. It would make me happy.

Hee, I like the idea. My Space Pirates was inspired by a very weird and quite bad Star Wars pirate fic. I thought, why not write an SGA pirate fic? *g*

Is your SGA pirate fic posted somewhere? Because I would like to read it. :)
