*headdesk*

This morning I got up and dragged myself out of bed and off to work, only to get there and find the parking lot empty. After a moment of confusion I realized it was not, in fact, Tuesday but instead Stat Holiday Monday.

Wow, do I feel stupid.

I guess, instead, I will spend the day podficcing. I have to rerecord a section of [profile] orbedrowned before I can post the next part (but I have about 15 minutes edited) and I also got distracted by [personal profile] house_of_lantis' Undercover, which is now about half recorded, and another non-fandom related editing project.

Well that sucked. Lol. On the bright side you're podficcing :)

:) I generally have some sort of podficcing project (or two or ten) on the go; it's a constant thing for me. I just have a bad habit of starting something but not finishing. Or forgetting to upload and share things when I'm done. Like, right now I have a finished podfic that I haven't posted yet because I've been too lazy to make a cover for it :P

I'm only snickering a little bit, mostly because I do have to work today so I'm feeling unjustifiably vindictive.

I'm still listening to blackbyrdy's 38 hour monster. Crazy podficcers are crazy.

Oh, don't feel too bad about laughing at me, I certainly am.

When are you coming home btw? I miss you :(

Oh wow, definitely head-desky. But hey, it's better to go to work when you don't have to than to forget to go when you do, right?

And this morning? My alarm didn't go off and I was almost late. What did I do to deserve this kind of luck?

None of us do anything to do that kind of luck. The universe just has a twisted sense of humor. :P

OMG I've done something like that, too! Hahahahaha...

Also, thank you for choosing my story to podfic! I'm so excited!

Yeah, I'm not always the best at keeping my schedule straight. :S

I'm glad you're excited about the podfic. :D Like I said, I have the first half of the fic recorded and right now 23 minutes of that has been edited. Judging by the length of your fic, it'll probably be around 2 1/2 hours long when the podfic is done. So it will probably take me a while to finish it (I'm so jealous of podficcers like diane_mckay who podfic so quickly!). Especially since I'm working on orbedrowned at the same time (although yours will be finished first :).

HOLY MOLY! That is a long bedtime story! Heehee!

Seriously, when you're done, please let me know where I can send you a little handmade gift (I make lots of cute stationery things). I'd love to send you something as a thank you. You can visit my LJ and check out comments left by my flist on my RAK (random act of kindness) posts to know that I'm not a crazy. Haha...

Thanks again!

I actually managed to get up to the hour mark yesterday! Which had me impressed because I'm sloooowwwwww at editing (also, I was setting up podfic_bingo yesterday). Now I just have to sit down and finish recording the rest of the story (and then, you know, edit it some more, then beta it, and edit some more. Maybe do some more recording and editing... god. But! An hour in!).

Aww, you totally don't have to.

However, I'm surprisingly ok with giving my address out to people on the internet. (I haven't been lately, but I used to send a lot of things to my flist too) I'm going to edit this comment after I post it so that it won't remain public, but here's my address:

Thanks! I'm going to get something together for you. HEEHEE!

Also, I'm having "Angel" flashbacks because of your name. Hahahahahaha...nice! :)

OK, thanks again, going to play in my craft room now. Yay!

Heh, yeah, it's kind of interesting having a name tied to fandom. On the plus side, if I ever got into one of those bad situations where a fans real name is tied to their fannish name it wouldn't have that much of a long term impact since if you Google my name, there's a lot of fannish stuff, but it's not me :)

I actually wanted to give you a bit of a heads up on the progress of the podfic. I know you seemed pretty excited about it but there's been some major delays in getting it done.

I have the whole thing recorded, however I don't know when I'm going to have time to finish editing it, or to do retakes. :S I signed up for the hooplamagnet charity auction and got a lot more of a response than I intended. Which, is good! Clean water for people in need! But holy podfic batman! I now have a lot of podfics I need to make, with timelines and stuff. Which means I'm going to be backing off Undercover for now. :S It'll definitely get done! Just… not necessarily any time soon. I have about 60K of fic to record first. (I’m not panicking about this at *all*. God.)

If you’d like though, you can listen to what I have so far. Disclaimer, this is a first draft which hasn’t been betaed or had any re-records done for it. The file’s here.

Sorry!

OMG! Thanks so much for letting me listen to the first draft! Heehee! It's very exciting, this whole process.

Also, I'm not in any kind of hurry for you to finish because I know you must have a lot of other podfics that you are working on. LOL. It's a gift that you even considered doing a podfic of my fic in the first place. :)

GOOD LUCK on your other podfic projects! You still get a present! Heeheee!

Well, I hope you like what I have done so far. And I'm glad you're ok with being patient. I know how hard it can be when you know something is coming and you want it now, now, NOW!

I'll admit though, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed now. *crazy eyes*
