Redemption

Last weekend I went to Redemption (convention). I think I've just about recovered. It didn't help that my body hates me and won't let me sleep past 8am, no matter what time I go to bed, and I stayed up until 2am at the disco on the Saturday night and 2am at the Dead Dog Party on the Sunday night. Although the latter was only because were playing games (Munchkin, Witch Trial and four player Spaceteam). Otherwise I was struggling to stay awake at 8pm.

Redemption

This morning (once I've prised myself out from under the blanket on the sofa and got dressed) I'm off to Redemption. This is the first time since it's been in Coventry that I haven't gone there early and I'm not going to visit uni to see what they've done with the place. Because last time was just so weird to see what they'd done with the (old) union building and it's just too different.

It'll be interesting to see how I feel this time in comparison to two year ago. Although I have learnt from last time that I do need time during the day to have a lie down and a bit of a rest. And I am not intending to stay up so late that I can't stand. I'd rather feel better and miss things than feel a bit crap for longer and go to more. In fact my plan for this afternoon is to have a lie down.

It's been quite weird this week, not going anywhere. I get home, have dinner, read emails/RSS feeds/forums etc, get to 8pm and then wonder what to do for the rest of the evening. Which you'd think would mean that I'd got through lots of things on my to do list and caught up on my viewing, but you'd be wrong. I don't quite know what I did now, but I don't seem to have achieved much.

I do have 1500 words of a first draft for my [info]unconventionalcourtship fic. I challenged myself at the beginning of the year to write at least 2000 words for everything this year because 1000 words or less is easy. At first I was wondering how to actually get the fic to go anywhere because the characters would just keep bantering, until I realised they can banter and pull the plot along at the same time. And then, when I thought of an ending, I realised it's merely the mid-point. The main thing is that I've really enjoyed writing it. I've hardly written any Blake's 7 because I always thought it would be hard (plus there wasn't anything I was especially keen to write) but I like writing banter and they do all do quite a lot of banter. I like it, I should write more!

Redemption is next weekend. Since the last one two years ago I've regained the ability to eat eggs and mushrooms. So the thing I am most excited about is eating fried egg at breakfast. The silly thing is that although I like eggs, I've got so used to not eating them that I just don't eat them. But there's nothing quite like a good fry-up. Hopefully Redemption 2011, where nothing went wrong, will have broken the curse where something went wrong every one since 2005, including becoming lactose intolerant at Redemption 2005 and getting dizzy the day after Redemption 2009.

I really have to admit I am back in the real world. I was at Redemption last weekend, then I went to the Doctor Experience and haven't been back to work. It's been nice. I would say I could get used to this not going to work lark, but I know if I had to do it for another week I'd get really bored. Since I promised I'd write up the DW Experience, and since I was too ill last year to write a con report, I will do it this year.
