(no subject)

Hey Reader,

It's been a good day today.  A little boring at times while I was at work, but overall pretty good. It's Mick Jagger's 63rd birthday and the radio delivered(Oh sure, I own almost all of the CDs and tapes and record, but sometimes it's nice to hear that song on the radio). They played THREE Stones songs while I was at work today, one I doubt has been played since, oh, maybe 1964. "I'm A King Bee" a cover blues song that appeared on their first album waaaaaaaay back in the day.

And even though they've announced the new tour dates for the States, and none of them are coming near Far Away Eyes, I'm still very, very excited! There is hope that they'll add another date or something and I'll get to see them again. One can dream, right?

I suppose that's enough Stones talk for the day. I spent a lot of today plotting out the rest of my one-shot, and I think it's going to come together really nice. After I watch Rock Star tonight, I'll be working on it until bed, and if things go well, I might have the rough draft finished by this weekend. Then I'll be able to send it off to my beta and you'll be able to read it while you wait for the next chapter.

I also spent some time mulling over the latest manga(I won't spoil you, except to say that Sesshomaru's mother has appeared), and the more I think about the way his mother looks, the way her hair is pulled back, she's a Phalene! They're technically Papillions, but their ears are dropped, while the Papillion's is erect. Just looking at that hair do of hers, though, she wears it just like if she had Phalene ears. I joked that Sesshomaru had a bit of Papillion in him(he licked his paw, he is terribly possessive over just about everything, and he has to have things JUST SO or he gets pissy. Sounds like the Pap I live with!)

Anyways, here's some photos of first a papillion and then a phalene:

Now you tell me what you think. I just think it's kind of funny, that's all. And that's my strange musing of the day.

Until next time,

Far Away Eyes

PS: Update at 11:40 PM YAY! I have another page written on my one-shot! I am also into the second stanza of the song. I like how it is coming along in the rough draft portion. I also have nearly 1800 words at this point, ot including the lyrics. I really like how it is working with me. I promise once this one-shot has been finished, I will return to the next chapter of Journey. You know how muses are, though. They think they have the right to usurp at any time. Anyways, I will have to spend time working on the next portion of the one-shot on the way to the races tomorrow night. I don't know how much I'll get done in the car, but we'll see! I just can't wait to have it written and posted for you guys! All the boring work I do at work si paying off, because it really let me figure out exactly what I wanted to do with this particular story. Anyways, I'll let you know as soon as it's finished!
