January: the badger fic

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Three (3) reasons why this fic was written: 1. because I thought to myself, “it’s January, I should write something” 2. because badgers are internet famous, yo 3. because everyone should have the chance to use the line “It really *was* a robot head” at some point The Badger Fic It’s a movies-only, multi-fandom silliness […]

I’m pretending we don’t have another snowstorm predicted this week.

(By making a list, of course!) I’ve been thinking about fandom vs canon, and how things become fanon, and how characters are written, and what things become part of my mental landscape because of the things that I watch and read. And I’m wondering, how do we come up with these things? The Inception Smoking […]

well, who knew?

I’m the first to admit I’m no wizard in the kitchen. Heck, if I use the stove in food prep it’s like a miracle. But I believe these instructions would give all but the most dedicated foodies pause: “You will need leather gloves and an ice pick, hammer, curved-ended oyster knife, plus a juicer.” See, […]

Fic Rec ‘o The Day

Friday, January 28th, 2011

I have spent *hours* today reading fanfic. I did not take an afternoon nap, but I’m not really sure “reading fanfic” in any way trumps “sleeping” as a productive activity. Anyway, somehow I got from Tron to Chronicles of Narnia, and this fic: Sea Legs, by st_aurafina It’s Eustace and Edmund and Lucy after ‘Voyage […]

it’s my weekend, and not a moment too soon

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Actually, if it had started yesterday, that probably would have been better — less crazy-making, I guess. There’s stuff I want to get done today, but right now I’m still in bed (yay laptops!) and the cat has crawled under the blankets too. Positives: As long as I stay under the covers, I’m not cold! […]

a little late…

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

They’re kind of late at this point, but I did actually watch Hawaii Five-0 on Sunday night (the one with the tsunami, obvs). And yeah, I’m still a sucker for ‘big storm coming!’ plots, even when they turn out to not be that at all. Anyway, quotes! “What’s that?” “It’s a tsunami warning?” “It’s a […]

I think I liked it my way better.

It’s a running theme in my life that I rarely have any idea of the song lyrics I’m “singing.” This is mainly because while I enjoy singing (usually in the car), I don’t require songs to make any sense — I’m happy to just string random words together that seem (to me) to match up […]

my day in quotes

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

“I feel like I’m taking *crazy* pills!” (Zoolander) it’s amazing how apt this is almost every day at work… “I know, we’ve got to rewrite the State of the Union.” (The American President) not quite that serious, but it felt like a game changer at the time “i before e except after c” (my boss) […]

White Collar (“Burke’s Seven”)

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Things we learned from this episode: 1. Mozzie is the criminal all the other criminals know and love. 2. Neal is not good at roughing people up. (He’s a lover, not a fighter.) 3. Character development: we can has! (Burn Notice, I’m looking at you! See how these characters change their behaviors and reactions? It’s […]
