I did some productive stuff, like sending an awkward email to attempt and set up a meeting, so we'll see what kind of response I get there. Otherwise, standard day. Jeopardy was nice to watch, and in Dancing with the Stars, I was disappointed they had a double-elimination. They USED to have four couples going into the finals, and there were really four couples that were of the same approximate winning-level tier of skill. (Antonio is a good dancer, but not as good as the other four semi-finalists. It shows in his dancing, it shows in his scores consistent throughout the season.)
So, obviously, at least one person I liked went home. The highest-surviving couple of the night needs the points the most in my opinion: while they are a good dancer, I don't think they have the same fan base as the other two finalists. Though, personally, I want the finalist in the middle of the three to win, and they could win, too, given that the lowest-scoring couple--while very popular--was still the lowest-scoring couple. Honestly wouldn't mind any sort of outcome though. All three have earned it and are of equal skill in my mind. Any the champion, any the third, any second place, dead serious, I mean it when I say I'd be content with it because they've all earned it.
We're certainly gonna be in for a treat then. But anyway, Castle was also on tonight. You could tell that the episode was rushed. I thought the villain reveal was alright, but I can understand how to others, it would be underwhelming. The ending couple of minutes though, those you could tell were two separate endings that were for some ungodly reason both tacked on. One was meant for if the show continued, one was meant for if it was not renewed, but once they learned the latter was the case, they should have cut the former out of the episode to flesh the latter out, just as they would have cut the latter out if they wished to flesh the former out.
Ah, well. Lost opportunity, but by far not the worst possible ending for the show.
I did manage to complete about a third of my celestial language by the way. I figured out how the letters would be ordered (it is very much NOT in the order of the English alphabet), and I created 20 of them if you include the punctuation. (I got through the vowels plus 10 of the 27 consonants.)
That being, 17 both upper and lowercase letters, total of 34, plus the three punctuation. Creating these symbols is hard, since I have to make them be simple, easy, and distinguishable from one another. This is not an easy task to maintain over time. At least I'm not forcing a restriction of any kind. (Though I want to avoid using dots if at all possible.)
I'm sort-of tempted to hand-write a blog once I actually finish the whole thing, and to deliberately leave it untranslated, as to allow people the chance to interpret. Not sure I actually will, though.
I dunno, we'll have to see, depends on how long it takes me to actually finish the dang thing.
