* We have reached our destination (for now) safely and with very little drama. That's not always a given when traveling with so many hellmonkeys.

* I have decided to bring "The Dead Path" with me on our trip and try my luck at remembering to renew it online when it's time. I'm enjoying it a lot and I want to finish it in one go (I'm still not done with "Blind Sight" which I keep taking out of the library intermittently).

* I would like very much to have the time and concentration to write my [community profile] femgenficathon fic this weekend. We'll see if that happens. Everyone here goes to bed fairly early, so it's a possibility.

* Also, I have a lot of fic reading to catch up on since Teddy fest and the Next Gen darkfest are posting again. Yay!

* My parents don't keep garlic in the house. I don't understand these people at all.

* How is YOUR weekend going, flist?

rillalicious: (Chuck daisies)
* It's absurdly stressful to live in a house that your landlord is selling. I get all the joy of keeping the apartment in viewing shape, and none of the satisfaction if they get an offer (at this point I'm blissfully pretending that anyone who buys the house will happily keep us as tenants).

* I've been putting together combinations of HP Lego people that make me laugh, a lot. I may or may not have them acting out scenes from the [livejournal.com profile] luciusbigbang that I'm writing with [livejournal.com profile] ellensmithee.

* Weather is cooler today, and sunny.

* I've decided that I need to drop out of the [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang. Part of it is that I don't think this will be the same fic if I write it by myself, and part of it is that the deadline just feels looming, and I have more than 24k to write to meet the word count. So, [livejournal.com profile] ellensmithee and I are still writing the Ian/Nikki (Numb3rs) multi-chaptered story, but we can't make promises to when we'll be done.

* Fanfic meme:

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

Oh, yes, yes, yes.

Way back when I was first getting into fandom, Chaos Rose's Algolagnia was probably the first fic that dramatically changed the way I saw characters. I never saw the dynamic between Lucius and Severus the same again. That story also changed the way that I've written fanon!Lucius since then (I don't necessarily consider the Lucius I write to be all that canon). Since then, I've come around on a lot of characters--characters I never would have realized I loved--through their portrayal in fic. It's what sold me on the HP next gen kids.

[livejournal.com profile] norgbelulah's Carol Johnson (Justified) really made me take notice of a character that I hadn't given much attention to in the series.

And I know as soon as I hit "post", I'm going to think of, like, a dozen more examples. Anyway, my point is YES. I think that the right writer can definitely change my view on the characters, for good or for bad.

* So, how are YOU on this lovely Sunday, flist?

rillalicious: (Stranger)
* My thoughts are with Norway this morning. My heart goes out to the survivors and the rest of the country.

* Good luck to all the couples lining up at midnight to get their marriage licenses in NY. My city, in particular, is being awesome about accommodating people. Marriage might not be my gig personally, but anyone who wants to make it work should have the right to do it.

* Still have swollen glands up the right side of my throat and head, but other than that annoyance, I'm feeling much better. It's cooler today, and the farmer's market is going to be lovely.

* I think I had maybe forgotten how kind and awesome SS/HG readers are when it comes to reading WIPs. What sweet, thoughtful people. <3 to you guys.

* Fanfic meme for today:

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

I was going to give this my pad answer of "I prefer writing characters who interest me", but on second thought, I don't know how true that is. I think by and large I write more male characters, but they tend to be very specific characters, with qualities that I relate to (there's also a group of characters I like with qualities that I don't have, but that I admire, but I think that's a whole different discussion). So I think that the qualities that draw me in to a character and make me want to write that character are more often given to male characters in fiction/television/movies (which totally sucks in its own right). There are exceptions to this--Justified, for instance. Give me ANY female character in Justified and I could absolutely obsess over writing her.

Also, there's a whole category of female characters I find really interesting whom I haven't written for one reason or another. Madeline and Fiona from Burn Notice, for example. I think I love every female character in Sons of Anarchy, but I don't know enough about either guns or bikes to write in that fandom. I've totally neglected the female characters in Numb3rs fandom even though I love them all, mainly because the David/Colby dynamic just speaks louder in my head. (Have I never mentioned how badly I wanted to write Millie/Alan?)

I don't know. I carry a lot of guilt over how much easier it seems to be for me to write male characters.


The rest of the questions )

* And it's been a while since I've extolled the virtues of Johnny Flynn. No words for how I feel about this man and his incredible talent. Just none. Here, friends, have some music this morning:





rillalicious: (Dustfinger)
* Good news! I did not succumb to my mystery illness during the night! And the migraine meds I took this morning have eased the headache a bit. Still, I would not recommend being feverish when the heat index is 115 and you live on the second floor without AC. /deep thoughts by Rilla

* I am behind on that fanfic meme, so here are yesterday's and today's:

Behind the cut for those who don't care )

* I haven't mentioned it here yet, so I will do so now. [livejournal.com profile] norgbelulah is working on an AMAZING Justified AU fic and I've had the privilege of getting glimpses as she goes and OMG, you guys. You all will HAVE to read it when she's done. So much love for this premise that I can't stand it.

* I still have a ton of reading to catch up on, but unfortunately this migrainy thing killed my ability to work yesterday, so I have to catch up on that first. Stupid grown up responsibility.

* I used my birthday Barnes and Noble gift cards to finally get copies of our own of Inkspell and Inkdeath (we've taken them out of the library so many times that I'm starting to feel guilty). Prepare for an upcoming diatribe on how I will never understand why these books didn't reach the levels of popularity of the Potter books. I adore them so much. I can't even tell you guys. Read them. Read them and love them. And if you have read them, I want to discuss them SO BADLY I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU.

* Way behind on summer TV viewing. I'm thinking of cutting my losses with a few shows and just trying to catch up on Burn Notice as I can. I still haven't seen every ep of last seasons H5-0, for goodness sake. This is why I went years without watching TV. I'm not good at it.

* Okay, we're off again to suck up some free air conditioning. I know I owe people comments and I swear I'll try to catch up this evening.

* So, let me know what's up with all of you, flist! <3

rillalicious: (Raylan drinking)
* Finally an SS/HG update from me. The next chapter of The Librarian's Debt is nearly finished and should be off to beta by this evening. I am enjoying the heck out of writing this one. It's been a lot of fun to get back to writing a WIP after posting nothing but finished fics for ages. And [livejournal.com profile] scatteredlogic, I *finally* got a pulse on your birthday fic prompt request, but I have a feeling the finished product might be a little lengthy. I'm working on it, though! It was very much inspired by seeing DH pt 2.

* I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of the fic that I need to catch up on reading. [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_novella and [livejournal.com profile] teddy_fest started posting this week, I'm behind on reading at [livejournal.com profile] nextgendarkfest, and the [livejournal.com profile] crowley_bigbang will be posting soon as well. So much good stuff to read!

* Fanfic meme, day 3:

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

♥ Harry Potter - Charlie Weasley, Lee Jordan, Teddy Lupin, Luna Lovegood, Severus Snape, Hermione Granger.

♥ Boy Meets World - Eric Matthews, Shawn Hunter.

♥ Supernatural - Crowley is probably the only character I feel I'm really good at writing.

♥ Numb3rs - Colby Granger, David Sinclair, Nikki Betancourt.

♥ White Collar - Probably circa S1 Neal Caffrey, Alex Hunter, Sara Ellis (as she was when she was introduced, anyway).

♥ Justified - Winona Hawkins, Mags Bennett, Aunt Helen, Ava Crowder, Tim Gutterson.

♥ Psych - Shawn Spencer.

♥ Star Wars - Lando Calrissian.

rillalicious: (Sally)
* Thank you for the birthday wishes, flist! ♥ Had a lovely nearly-my-birthday weekend with DH pt 2, Shakespeare in the park, and gourmet cupcakes. Also got to see [livejournal.com profile] thistle_verse and her wonderful family the other day. Had so much fun together. We miss them terribly.

* Making plans to see DH pt 2 in the theatre again soon. Gah, it's difficult to plan these things around 4 hellmonkeys when you have virtually no childcare.

* Speaking of hellmonkeys, they and the boyfriend got together and made me an adorable little Lego Weasley garden with Molly and Arthur and Fred and George for my birthday. ♥ I shall fill it with Weasleys and love. ♥

* My bare wall saga! I am framing art and getting it up on the walls. I will post pictures soon.

* It's hot and sticky. This is not news. But you guys. Summer is half over. How did that happen already?

* Writing. I have two SS/HG docs open at the moment. Huzzah!

* Tonight I'm finally going to watch Crazy Heart, which I bought myself for my birthday.

* Fanfic meme, Day 2:

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

Behind the cut because this got long )

* Have a happy, happy Tuesday, flist!
rillalicious: (Hermione reading)
I'm collecting my thoughts on DH for a more articulate review post soon, but in the meantime, a couple of things.

* My proudest geekmom moment happened while sitting in the theatre waiting for the movie to start. Nine year-old hellmonkey pulled out his copy of The Hobbit and started reading it aloud to his grandfather. Because dwarf songs make the time pass faster!

* We're traveling again today, and seeing [livejournal.com profile] thistle_verse later!!!! But for now, I'd like to just sit here and write fic with all these ideas in my head. But I can't. Because there is no time! *sadface* (I know! What problems I have, right?)


* So, am I directing any of these DH pt 2 plot bunnies toward anything productive, like the stuff I need to be working on right now?

No, I am not.

I'm writing fic about Charlie and the escaped Gringotts dragon. (I don't think that needs a spoiler cut since it's not an actual scene from the movie, and it's book canon.) My brain started this after reading book 7, but I managed to make it go dormant for a few years. And apparently it's back now.

Honestly, I just completely lack the ability to not write about Charlie or Lee Jordan when I get struck with the inspiration. Teddy Lupin is quickly joining that list.

So, flist, what about you? Are there any characters/ideas that you're never able to shake once they hit you?

* Also? I need more/better HP icons. I've been thinking that for a long while, but now, I want them.

rillalicious: (Neville brave)
* Hey there, LJ. Why so dead on Tuesdays? It's like the internets don't realize that I'm bored with work today and need entertainment.

* Sometimes I feel like the only person in the world with no interest in tumblr. Or google +. I had a fleeting interest in Twitter, but that's pretty much evaporated now. *clings to LJ like the old lady I am*

* Speaking of aging, my birthday is next week. I have informed the hellmonkeys that they only have seven shopping days left. I'm not so sure the laughter I got in response is promising.

* Got our tickets to see DH pt 2 on Saturday. It's kind of going to kill me to have to wait out Friday, but my brother wants to go with us and has Saturday off. So. Remind me to pack tissues.

* I know you were all waiting with bated breath for the resolution to my art-on-the-walls dilemma, and I've finally come up with something. The blank wall in the living room is getting a cluster of fox themed artwork, and a few framed quotes (Vonnegut's "Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt" is the first one I've ordered). I decided that too much wolf art was too... reminiscent of Three Wolf Moon, which, while AWESOME for a t-shirt, isn't really the vibe I'm going for in home decorating. The kitchen is getting some mid-century modern posters and photograph prints. The hallway is getting a lovely framed Buddha print. Now I just need to worry about the blank wall in the dining room. At the moment I'm thinking vinyl wall decal, maybe a branch of blossoms and birds, but I'm not married to that idea.

* Writing a bit. Getting my SS/HG groove back on. Working on my [livejournal.com profile] pphpficexchange (Harry/Pansy exchange) and totally excited about it. Also, writing some smutty smut.

* Here, have a quick, lovely Hawaii Five-O rec: Known by [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon. Steve/Danny. ~750 words. R rated. Spoilers through the end of S1. This fic is so beautiful and dreamy and perfect. OMG. It makes my heart happy.

* Okay, time to get cleaned up and find a place with air conditioning to kill a few hours.

* <3 flist.

rillalicious: (Twiggy Luna)
* Um, if anybody finds my motivation, could you please let it know that I'm waiting for it to come home? Of course, this could be due to the ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh headache that's settled in behind my left eye.

* In more upbeat news, I finished my [livejournal.com profile] crowley_bigbang! It's about 22k, an SPN/HP crossover, with a side of Draco/Hermione (I know, wut?). And a bit of Bobby/Crowley. Because, really. Anyway, very excited and relieved.

* I've got one more thing to finish in the next few days, and then I'm writing the next chapter of The Librarian's Debt. Yay!

* Oh, oh, oh, and in case there was any question that I am a perpetual twelve year-old. I'm reccing again at the [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom this month. And I'm reccing Albus Severus/Scorpius. Also, my birthday is this month. And I've been absolutely gleeful that I get to rec AS/S for my birthday! Really, honestly, there is some great stuff on that ship, and if you guys are so inclined, please go check it out!

* Hey, silly luddite question here. How do you make a link to, say, a journal or comm on IJ (or DW), and make it look just like a link to an LJ comm, except with the little IJ symbol? I've seen people do it, but I've never learned how.

* Why, yes, I did cry through the entire bit with Jo and the trio giving their speeches at the premiere last week. I am going to be a mess during this movie, man. I have a feeling eldest is going to get up and find another seat so she doesn't have to be seen with the crying lady.

* Still need to catch up on last week's Burn Notice and Suits. Oh, and Torchwood Miracle Day. Summertime is just not conducive to watching TV for me.

* So, how are you, flist? It feels like ages since we've talked.

* OK, now I'm going to crawl into my bed in my very dark bedroom and not get up until tomorrow. <3
rillalicious: (Boyd)
* OMG. You guys. Tomorrow is July 1. June, where did you go? Eep.

* So I brought Alice's Tea Cup (the book, no the actual place) home from the library yesterday and I'm pretty sure I can live off of nothing but scones and cake for the rest of my life. The first recipe I'm going to try is Lavender Earl Grey scones. Mmmm, scones.

* Speaking of baking, when it started to get a little stale, I managed to save the very delicious Spiced Lemon cake I made earlier in the week by soaking it in egg/coconut milk custard and then baking it into bread pudding. OMG, so good.

* Also? Fresh figs. OMG, yum. <3 summer. There's a reason I've never managed to make a recipe that calls for figs. I eat them all before I have the chance.

* I've been rearranging and I shifted the dining room around so now it's an entirely different wall that needs art. But I like it better this way. Anyway, I'm scouring etsy trying to figure out exactly what I want.

* Took a few days off from writing to regroup and reorganize my thoughts. In the last week, I finished off three fics for different fests, and I felt like I needed some time to clear them out of my head space. I'm feeling pretty good about all of it now. Hopefully in the next few days I'll finish the ending of my [livejournal.com profile] crowley_bigbang and be able to start on my [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon story. I also want to fill a few prompts at the Summer in Harlan commentfic meme and there's more than one catching my eye at the Let's Get Gay Married commentfic meme too.

* SO, what are you guys up to?

rillalicious: (Josh)
* Ugh, why do I do this like EVERY time now? I start writing something, get on a roll with it, and then I get near the end and decide it's an utter pile of shit and not worth finishing. I'm totally held up on all these other things I want to write because I need to finish this fic first, and I just can't.

* Other than that, not much going on except day three of headacheyness. Stupid weather with its changing and being all weatherly out there.

* Still anxiously waiting for the GOP to finally bring the marriage equality legislation to the floor in the NYS Senate. Argh, sooooo frustrating.

* RIP Peter Falk. <3 His character in The Princess Bride taught me everything I needed to know about passive aggressively convincing a child to give a book a chance, long before I had kids.

* Okay, I'm off to buy cheese. We're out of cheese, which tends to make people 'round these parts a little testy.

rillalicious: (Eric and Jack)
* I've apparently become one of those people who is addicted to signing up for fests/exchanges/ficathons. I had to make a spreadsheet. These are the recent fics I've finished for deadlines: [livejournal.com profile] wcpairings, [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_novella, [livejournal.com profile] nextgendarkfest. Here are the ones I have almost finished: [livejournal.com profile] teddy_fest and [livejournal.com profile] crowley_bigbang. Here are the ones I've only just started or have yet to start: [livejournal.com profile] pphpficexchange, [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon, [livejournal.com profile] horrorbigbang, and [livejournal.com profile] samhain_smut. And then there are the two big bangs I'm cowriting with [livejournal.com profile] ellensmithee: [livejournal.com profile] luciusbigbang and [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang.

* That doesn't include other smaller commitments or my two Snape/Hermione WIPs. I seriously haven't written like this in years. Not since Newbaby v3.0 was a wee thing. I don't know exactly what to make of it.

* Sooooo tired tonight, but it's a worthwhile tired. Walked down to the rally for marriage equality today at the state capitol building. If this vote doesn't come to the senate floor tomorrow before they break for summer, I'll be crushed. My state has to pass marriage equality. It just has to. /rare political spiel

* Samuel L. Jackson reading "Go the Fuck to Sleep" will NEVER not make me smile.

* New Burn Notice on Thursday. Yay! That is so my summer show.

* I seriously need someone to kick my ass and force me to make time for yoga. Because I seem to be great at coming up with a thousand other things I should be doing instead.

* How are you, flist? I'm feeling very disconnected from everyone tonight.

rillalicious: (Josh)
* Good Monday morning, flist!

* [livejournal.com profile] ellensmithee and I had a slight change of plans for our [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang. We've tentatively decided to switch to Numb3rs instead (OMG, how long have I been trying to talk her into writing that? Ha! Victory is mine!), and the story idea of the moment is Ian/Nikki. (Did you see that, [livejournal.com profile] mustangcandi???)

* Netflix and LJ were both being uncooperative last night. It's like the internet did not want me to be entertained. So we watched most of Any Given Sunday on tv instead. I've never seen it before, and didn't realize it would be so Oliver Stone-ish. I mean, I guess I should have, but I was kind of surprised anyway.

* I've decided I'm too much of a cranky old lady to use tumblr. I don't understand what is going on there at all. You kids get offa my lawn!

* I have to make grown-up phone calls today. Uck, I hate the phone so so so much. Also, I'm so far behind on work, OMG. And homeschool paperwork. Real life, leave me alone.

rillalicious: (Charlie Eppes)
* You guys. I've apparently lost the ability to write a fic under 10k. I can't even tell you. There are just so many words. Words.

* Went to Target today and came home with a pint of Volun-Tiramisu. OMG. Healthy eating habits be damned. Tomorrow is the farmers market and I shall by healthy green things, and prepare them, and eat them. Tonight, I have Ben & Jerry's and Saranac Black Forest for dinner.

* [livejournal.com profile] ravyndamaurot, I got a lovely card from you in the mail! Thank you, my wife! <3333

* I ordered some absolutely ADORABLE fanart from etsy, and already have it framed and up on my dresser while I decide where to hang it. The boyfriend has pointed out that I have not put any recent pictures of hellmonkeys into frames, but the Crowley/Bobby postcard art? I was all over it.

* I'm having visual disturbances tonight. I really really hope that doesn't mean a migraine is in the works for tomorrow. Anyway, I can hardly see out of my right eye right now. That's what I get for being all "internet forever!" tonight. I suppose that means tomorrow is clean all the things day, as long as I'm not curled up in bed.

* One and a half beers and I love EVERYBODY tonight. OMG. I'm just pleasantly happy with the whole wide world.

* I should probably go to bed now, but I'm just dying to finish this fest fic I'm working on. There are just so many words.

rillalicious: (Josh)
* It feels like we just got here and tomorrow morning we're leaving again.

* I finally had enough of the Lifetime Movie Network here and I'm forcing my parents to watch Numb3rs and Justified. Because, dammit, yeah. Also, I finally got them hooked up with Netflix. I'm expecting many phone calls when I get home asking which remote to use and which buttons to press.

* Eldest is reading "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret?" This leaves me feeling a little weepy and oddly shocked that I'm old enough for her to be that old.

* Second eldest just started "The Hobbit". My heart is filled with such joy. I can't even.

* One week until the release of Alpocalpyse. I've been a Weird Al fan ever since I can remember, and the hellmonkeys are probably even more excited for the new album than I am. So, there's that. Yay!

* Hey, is anyone on my flist interested in beta reading a fairly lengthy cross-dressing focused fic? HP fandom, slash, for an anonymous fest, and it should be finished by early next week. Let me know if that sounds like your kind of thing.

* And how ARE you, flist? I feel like I haven't asked that question in ages. <3

rillalicious: (Chuck daisies)
* I have all the focus of a gnat on caffeine tonight. I don't know what my problem is. I should be writing. I have things to write. All I want to do is find shiny things and pet them. Gah.

* In less frustrating news, my "It's OK to be Takei!" mousepad arrived today. I was desperately in need of a new mousepad, so this makes me all kinds of happypants.

* I finished a fest fic last night and I'm not at all happy with it. In fact, I'm a little reluctant to ever attach my name to it because it's just... not good. On the one hand, it's 5k, so I feel an obligation to send it in. On the other, I wonder if I should just drop out (it's not an exchange, but a prompt-based fest) instead of turning in something I find mediocre at best.

* Started rewatching BSG. <3

* Working on the next chapter of The Librarian's Debt, in which there is more plot, and more characters, and I'm hoping that I can still maintain the tone and mood.

* Also working on my [livejournal.com profile] teddy_fest fic, which I am so very much in love with. Oh, Teddy.

* So I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon, because I think it's just an amazing thing. And I might actually end up writing two stories, because there are two female characters (different fandoms) that I have been DYING to write about but haven't really had a deadline to prompt me into doing it.

* YOU GUYS, I detached my fried keyboard without ruining my laptop! I am so proud of me because I am not usually capable of doing these things without disaster. But I did it! Now, hopefully, I can install the new keyboard when it arrives without any further problems. Because there was no WAY I was going to pay Best Buy as much as they wanted to send it away and have it fixed. And actually, at the moment, it's wicked hot in here and I kind of like just having the wireless keyboard on my lap instead of the lapdesk. No more random z key going off and ruining everything! I am so smart! S-M-R-T! /Homer Simpson

* I made popsicles today. They were mango/banana/coconut milk and why yes, they were very delicious. Then we had popcorn and watermelon for dinner because it was hot and I was lazy.

* How are you tonight, flist? Weekend plans? We'll be traveling on Sunday, but home by midweek next week.

rillalicious: (Peter and Neal)
* Okay, so it's just a temporary keyboard, and I look like a dork sitting here with a keyboard in front of my laptop, but I can type again. Happy day! The moral of the story is: Take better care of your laptop, Rilla. It is important to you.

* I'm going to try to catch up on commenting today. I scrolled through my flist yesterday, but using the point-click onscreen keyboard was maddening and I couldn't do it.

* So yesterday I got my assignment for the [livejournal.com profile] pphpficexchange (Harry/Pansy exchange) and I'm so, so, so excited for it! OMG, I know I say that with, like, every exchange, but this one is going to be so much fun to write.

* Now this weekend I need to finish: My [livejournal.com profile] nextgendarkfest fic, which is almost done but for a couple of brief scenes, [livejournal.com profile] crowley_bigbang which has been on the back burner for a while now and just needs a few thousand more words, and the next chapter of The Librarian's Debt, which is shaping up well and won't take too long. After those things are off my plate, I'm going to finish my [livejournal.com profile] teddy_fest fic, which I'm absolutely and completely in love with.

I wrote it down, so it's going to happen, right?

* For now? Back to my knitting project, and sorting out the bookshelves this afternoon. Joy.

* New White Collar tonight. I'm all ready to start the season with a blank slate. Don't disappoint me, show. Please?

* How are you, flist?

rillalicious: (Sally)
* Watched Whip It with eldest hellmonkey tonight. While it was cute... (gets spoilery--and, um, a bit foul-mouthed--behind the cut) Oh, Drew Barrymore, your lip-service 'feminism' will never cease to annoy me, will it? )

* Sorry about that. While I don't like to discuss politics here, I'm feeling some residual grumpiness from it apparently being International Yay for Misogyny year in the media, or something.

* I have the attention span of a flea tonight. I'm writing things, like, one sentence at a time, and then staring at the screen for ten minutes. Apparently feminist ranting takes a lot out of me. Or something.

* Creepy cat lady next door is baby-talking her cats back inside right now. At one in the morning. The tone she hits is like something out of a horror movie. The kind where you'd discover, after listening to her do that for years, that she has no cats.

* Maybe I should watch something on Netflix. I'm all kinds of punchy tonight. Seriously, I'm in a much better mood than this post is letting on. I swear! I even did yoga and got all caught up on work today and everything. And I scrubbed the bejeesus out of my kitchen. It's so shiny and clutter-free and pretty.

rillalicious: (Sally)
Loud downstairs neighbor is loud. LOUD. Why so loud, downstairs neighbor? The people you are talking to are standing right next to you.

OMG, how did it get to be 1:30 in the morning?

But I finally got a pulse on this [livejournal.com profile] nextgendarkfest fic!

That means I'm starting the next chapter of The Librarian's Debt tomorrow. *g*

Also, I have decided that I love my [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_novella so very much that I'm just going to keep editing and re-editing it forever and ever and ever, apparently. Ha!

Also also? I have Corona and lime wedges. Now I need a beach, and I can be just like a commercial.

rillalicious: (hipbones)
* I've come to the conclusion that I need to take a break before I see the last few eps of Hawaii Five-O, because I can't get my head in the game for this [livejournal.com profile] nextgendarkfest fic while I'm watching Steve and Danny being all hot and in love (because they SO ARE) in the Hawaiian sunshine. But I have an ending to the fic. I just have to figure out how to get from where the characters are now, to where they will be then.

* My coffee grinder stopped working this morning. Woe.

* I had a very weird dream last night. Mitchell (of Being Human UK) and Harvey Keitel were best friends. And they were on some sort of suicide mission. But they were very huggy about the whole thing.

* I think I need to start a regular yoga practice again. I'm just feeling... lethargic.

* Farmer's market opens on Saturday!!!!! OMG, yay! Apparently there will be llamas. LLAMAS.

* Today I'm making garlic kale, beet salad, and writing. *nods* Also, there are Very Important phone calls to be made.

* [livejournal.com profile] norgbelulah, I owe you an email that I will send after I shower.

* How are YOU all, flist?
