Just back from surprise NYC visit with timeripple. well, it wasn't a surprise, but the sudden cheapness of the 39th street Pod Hotel for the month of July meant that we did it a few weeks earlier than originally planned. It was hot as hell and I'm exhausted, but we did have udon and wafel truck wafels, and sing something like 5+ hours of JE karaoke. I want to say that "Test Drive" is the most unintentionally hilarious karaoke song since "Linda Linda Linda."

During the trip, i took out my laptop battery to see if i could fix the way my laptop was warping, only to discover that...the battery is in fact swollen to like 150% thickness around one cell, causing the entire problem. This also explains my trackpad button and space bar's lack of clickiness as well; i was just assuming the laptop was old. Apple online stuff claims the swelling is a safety feature ("no no, that means it's WORKING") but I get to take a trip to the Lancaster apple store tomorrow to be like, uh, this is not okay.

Also on the train, I started editing About Face, finally. Once I actually sat down with some determination, it took embarrassingly little effort to fix the major plot problem i caused right at the beginning. I think mostly i was just still mad for causing it in the first place. Shouldn't take more than a couple days for me to finish, and then I'll farm it out to a couple other people to catch all the junk I miss. 60k worth of typo-checking is no joke.

I really don't know what to do about the mail emoji, though. Tsukioka in particular I think ought to have them, but in e-reader/pdf format...i don't know. I think there's too much worry about whether something will show or not. Maybe when all the real editing is done I'll try some kaomoji or something.

And I posted my first shiritori fic, which involves Kawai, Tottsu, and Yara. Huzzah!
