Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse: A Guide to the End of the World

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

My September fic writing project is *done*! And just in time, too! It’s not really a fic, more of a “let’s take a break from making things up to just ramble on about stuff that pops into my head.” Kind of like the April management thing, except possibly less coherent. Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse: A […]

Why does this always happen?

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Here we are, at the end of September — I’m all set to do my monthly reading wrap-up, and all of a sudden I find all these great stories that I absolutely *must* read! Right away! (And I still have to finish my September writing project — gah!) Just in case I don’t get to […]

Morning Merlin Rec!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Coffee, by psychodeathwish Author Summary: “Arthur gets free coffee and debates the meaning of it.” “When was the last time you paid for your coffee?” “I…” He paused, thinking. In the month they’d been coming here, he couldn’t remember when he’d last paid for coffee. At first, sure, but when he’d become a regular, Merlin […]

It’s Saturday!

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Okay, not really. I used to work Saturdays but have Sundays off, so Saturday was like my Friday. But this week, due to an odd (and hopefully *unusual*) series of scheduling issues, my last day off was last Wednesday. I worked Thursday to Monday, so today is like my Saturday (which is like Friday) which […]

AI RPF fic

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

Sometime in August I found a link to jerakeen’s fanfic, and read everything on the site. Luckily, jerakeen keeps writing more! Hang the Sense of It, by Jerakeen AI RPS, Adam/Kris, AU, “the Dinosaur Fic,” Adam and Kris are on their third date when dinosaurs show up, leading to coatcloset!cuddling and Adam’s mom saving the […]

Television: “FlashForward” pilot

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

I really only had one reason for watching the first episode of “FlashForward” — John Cho is in it, and he played Sulu in the new Star Trek movie. (PS: Although he did not fight with a sword, skydive, or pilot a spaceship in the show, he was involved in a car crash, and also […]

SPN Rec-o’-the Day

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Asunder, by rageprufrock I almost didn’t even *read* this one, because 1) It’s a WIP, and even though I feel fairly confident that it will, ultimately, be completed, I have limited memory space available for following the plot in ongoing sagas. 2) It’s Dean/Castiel, and I’m like 98% a Dean/Sam 4ever shipper. This is possibly […]


Thursday, September 24th, 2009

I’m back from our field trip! Fail!moment of the day: not realizing that I was supposed to switch buses at one point to actually reach my intended destination. Still winning over last year’s fail!moment (when my boss’ boss accidentally propositioned a questionably gendered person on the street at night). In the grand tradition of gleeful […]

Work Field Trip!

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

I will be here tomorrow! Very excited, went last year and had no idea what to expect. It’s like Halloween for grownups. The plan for this year: 1. Sneakers, sneakers, sneakers. The boss can’t yell at you for dress code violations if you’re not technically on the clock. 2. Dress more warmly. I figured it […]

Nature bites back!

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

I’m not normally a very nature-y person. I *want* to be nature-y, but I don’t really like being hot or cold, getting wet or dirty, and I’m terribly scared of insects, which kind of limits my nature enjoyment possibilities. Today was astoundingly beautiful, breezy and delightful, and I went outside. I didn’t go far, just […]
