Where Have I Been?

keep-calm-i-m-still-hereThe answer to that question is: Around. I got lazy and then life got crazy over the past 3 weeks. It happens. I make no promises. πŸ˜‰

So what’s going on now? Well it’s April 1st and that means the start of another session of CampNaNoWriMo. CampNaNo is kind of like the yearly NaNoWriMo in November, but instead of writing 50,000 words in 30 days, you can set your own word goals. Camp is, in general, more relaxed than November NaNo. It’s a good place to finish up a project or do edits, that sort of thing.

And in fact, my goal this month is to finish my current work in progress. I’m about 12,000 words in and I always shoot for 50,000 at least. So I plan on writing 38,000 words this month. Not sure if that will get me to the end of the story, but we’ll see.

Now, I know I’ve missed a few episodes of both Fairy Tail and Survivor. I’m not going to play the catch up game, I’m just going to start fresh with the most current episodes.

With that said, let’s talk about Survivor for a minute. It was merge time! Everybody loves the merge. It’s a big mile stone if you’re playing the game and as a viewer it’s fun to see all these personalities get together. The original 3 tribes still stand and are pretty equal. 4 Brain, 4 Beauty and 3 Brawn. Of the 3, Beauty is the tribe in the middle with the swing vote. Brain and Brawn are fighting over who gets who.

There was so much set up in this episode. Lots of people talking, a couple people being stupid and showing their hand to everyone else. Like Debbie just being too aggressive and Scot telling, not just James, but Nick as well, that Tai has an Idol. Dumb move y’all, dumb move.

The Challenge is a typical balancing act with Nick coming out the winner. But the most important part of the Challenge is that Jeff gets everyone to talk about their injuries and possible infections that they’re dealing with. This leads to a house call from the doctor to everyone at camp. Most of the cast is fine, but not Neil.

He’s got this volcano on his knee and the doc is worried, so Neil gets pulled from the game. He still gets to stick around and be on the jury, but he needs that knee seen to first.

It’s a really shitty way to leave the game. It’s one thing if you get seriously injured or work your self to exhaustion, but to go home because you have a boo boo on your knee. Man that’s gotta suck.

And, of course, since Neil went home, there was no Tribal and no need to vote. It also puts Beauty in the majority. They could do something with that, but I’m not sure they will. People like Tai and Julia are really loyal to the Brawn tribe, but the preview for next week’s episode hints at drama within the Brawn alliance. So we’ll have to see what happens. πŸ˜‰

Thanks for dropping by and being patient enough to still come even though I disappear sometimes. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!
