It's weird what gets me writing. Last year it was the dare to include every single word I got wrong at Freerice, in 2007 it was trying to outdo myself with incomprehensible obsessive crazy from Errol's POV, in 2006 it was taking the most audaciously ridiculous dares and making them work because fairies are just flat out weird like that - this year, it was 'Include the lyrics of a song spread through your novel, from 0 to 50k.' So now, on a new plot with new characters (Seriously, brain! Can I never ever start NaNo on November first ever?) I am plodding along, putting a single word from 'Butterflies and Hurricanes' every 354/5 words. Whatever works...

Though I did think about using Suteki Da Ne (translated, since I'm not yet stupid and masochistic enough to attempt to write a novel in a language I don't speak) so the last word of the novel would be 'dream,' but I think the novelty of 'now' being the last word is good enough.

So. New novel, as if I needed a new plot. New motivator, much appreciated. Number of words still only in triple digits. Looks like it's up to the Senotaph to grant me my yearly boon once more.

Actually, just my dad. But then I was writing a reply to his email, and I thought 'screw it, this is going on LJ.'

Okay, so on Tuesday, there was this significantly cool broadcast of a concert, and my fellow metalheads (well, three of them: Arthur the guitarist, Euan the drummer, and Marco the singer) were going, and I wanted to go, but since this school is a bureaucracy, and one which is set up for people who are not legal adults, and all that greatness, I needed permission from my father to go, permission from my friend's mother saying it was okay for me to be at their house, and... I could not go with a driver who was currently a student here, even though we're legally both adults. Apparently students aren't allowed to drive other students if the school knows about it. So I would have to get a taxi or the bus or something. Yeah, no. But, I am clever, and worked out that I just had to do a bit of finagling around the rules and tell people that I was not leaving the campus in Arthur's car but rather leaving the campus, signing myself over to custody of his mother, and THEN getting in the car. Which of course I did, just not in that order. Actually I think Arthur's mum was glad to have me in the car with them. Arthur is a responsible driver, but I think she was a bit anxious about what might happen with three excited teenage boys on a major causeway listening to speed metal. I guess she expected 'the girl' to keep things under control or something. :P But it was okay - the driving was easy, the roads were pretty much empty most of the way, and we managed to restrain ourselves from pre-emptive moshing in the car.

Once we were there, I actually got a recipe for chili sauce off the owner of a kebab place - I'd asked him what was in it in case it was the chili-mayo like the place by the station, and he just told me how to make it. I'll be trying that one out, I guess! It was tasty.

Anyway, the concert. It was really cool to see a streaming concert - you lose the bruises and the smell of other people's sweat and the chest-throbbing feeling of being kicked in the sternum by the percussion section, but you get to see things from all different camera angles and much closer up (them fingers was flyin'!) and there was some 'backstage chat' stuff between the sets. It was the 'Big 4' - Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica, and Anthrax. I knew a little Slayer and Metallica, had heard of Megadeth, but knew nothing of Anthrax - I'm glad I went! They were great. Well, once you got over their singer's mullet. Man, that thing was scary. But he had a great stage presence, and a really cool showmanship. Kind of retro. :P

Staying at Arthur's was cool, too. They have the niftiest freaking house ever. They have a tortoise (Percy) who has dominion over a chunk of their (upstairs, à la Canadienne) kitchen floor and balcony, which is covered in little trays of lawn-in-a-box and clover and flowers. I think I'm in love with their tortoise. He was motoring around climbing all over everything, and he ate a piece of lettuce out of my hand. So cute! I love the way reptiles feel cool to the touch when they haven't been basking. You can feel in your hands that you have a living, breathing, blood-filled, sentient creature in your hands, but it's not throwing heat the way our animal hindbrains expect other creatures to do. Cognitive dissonace tickles little bits of my brain that otherwise get bored quite easily.

Oh! And Arthur also played me some of the Remmix (Jamie, Euan, Arthur, Jörn, Marco) songs they've been recording (on a Mac - what else? :D) and it took me a moment to recognize who was playing. I've only heard them live, and it's quite a different sound - I suppose moreso with metal, and compounded by minimalist equipment at all the school gigs. Their recordings sound really professional! When I heard them I knew the tune sounded familiar, but it was really polished and I didn't immediately think it could possibly be them. Wow, technology. <3

Oh, and needless to say, I survived. Mrs. Hall gave me a hug and confessed she'd been worried about me. I was all warm and fuzzy over that! And then I slept loads. Yeah.

Also, I have some interesting plans for Tuesday.

BUT! Now I'm going to get things together for the epic chemistry revision that's set to happen after lunch. Godspeed, neurotransmitters!
