It’s my first ever WIPocalypse blog, my friends have been involved for a while now, and I love the questions so I decided to join in. January’s topic is “Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!”
So I’m Nancy, and on most social media sites I go by Katjakay, Why? Long story for another time, or not as it’s kind of boring. I live in the Shuswap region of British Columbia, Canada where I make a living baking. I only have two project on the go at the moment, Theresa Wentzler’s Stroke of Midnight,
Goal wise, I plan to finish Cindy and start the Fractal (see THE LIST) and do bunches of small things, cause Carla told me to.
At for what I’ve been up to this week, just call it the most bizarre work week ever. Basically we are getting a whole new computer system at work and all the managers and assistant managers had to go for training, in Vancouver. The plan was to fly half on them there on Sunday night for training Monday and then fly home Monday night, with the other half leaving Monday. Which meant a fairly full week for me as I wasn’t going at all and got to cover the manager’s shifts, or that was the idea, cause then weather happened.
I pulled out of my garage Monday morning and stopped dead, not to move again for several hours due to 18 inches of snow. And I even have a good winter car, so I had to call in a snow day, my first ever including school, it’s not a common thing around here. But of the three people that were working in the bakery that day, only one managed to show up. The next day the planes were grounded so manager type people were stuck in Vancouver for two days, and the half that hadn’t gone yet, didn’t. And of the four people supposed to work that day, only two showed up, strangely the two (me included) that missed the day before. So we had this massive dump of snow, that essentially shut down the region for nearly three days, but it sure is pretty.
As for what I watched,
The Kittens of Oz
The Librarians - This just keeps getting more and more fun.
Jem and The Holograms - I loved this show as a teenager and it just showed up on Netflix, for a limited time at that, so I have to get my watching in quickly
Wimbledon - A great sports/romance, but I was almost guaranteed to like this one, I've been a fan of Paul Bettany’s since he was trudging naked in A Knights Tale. Also this is the movie that introduced me to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, still a favorite actor of mine.
Wing Commander - One of a multitude of low(ish) budget sci-fi movies based on a game. I enjoyed this one, it’s not as campy as some and has likable characters.
Into the Woods - I went to this as it looked like a fun Disney fairy tale movie, I should have done my research and found that it was based on a Steven Sondhiem musical. Then I would have known to drag my mother along as well, since we both love musicals. This was a lot of fun.
