Dept. of April

This and That

As 
[personal profile] selenak  says, April's Fool Day is a bit pointless in a world where Donald Trump has a serious shot at the White House, isn't it? In slightly better news, Bernie stands a chance of winning the Wisconsin primary next Tuesday, and appears to be closing the gap between himself and Clinton in New York, supposedly her home territory. I await those primaries with great interest.

I am so very pleased that  Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū is getting a new season. This anime, which sort of re-introduced me to the Japanese art (some consider it a minor art; I don't) of rakugo, is for me the best anime of the past season, and it may just be a tiny masterpiece. So, hurrah!

Got through this week, and I'm grateful for that!

I developed a new drink for the weekend, involving a frozen strawberry in a martini glass, over which I pour .75 shot of Sayuri brand nigori sake and 1.25 shots of gin.
I call it a strawberry blossom, and in my un-Japanese that comes out as hana ichigo. I'm having one now.

I did some more work on Hearts & Moons, but need to sit down and do more serious plotting (with a map of my setting) than I normally do. I have an ACTION! SCENE! at the heart of this chapter, and I need to know just what I'm doing - and more importantly, what each of my characters is doing - to make it read believably. I am, however, very pleased to have come up with the winning stroke for our heroes. So it's buckle down this weekend,

Gahhh...who needs April Fools when we have The Drumpf!?!? UGH.

Awaiting it with interest myself...but for some reason, I no longer get my rec list from KOS!! *Cries*

Ohh, that actually sounds delicious!

That's weird. Could it have gotten caught in your spam filter somehow? Maybe all you have to do is rejoin Daily Kos under a different name, and you can start getting them again.

Yes, the drink's delicious, and it has the added benefit of not being as strong as a regular martini, which treats me much more kindly in the morning. Heh.

Now I want that on a button or a tee-shirt. Heh.

I hope I can stick to my guns on the fic writing!
