hey, it’s that fic I was talking about this morning!

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

We got into a breakfast conversation about ridiculous overuse injuries from various technological devices today (that swipe up/down motion on the nook makes my wrist ache!), and I quoted an SGA fic. Which I then found! (And it’s a classic!) Advantage, by Resonant The quote in question: “Can’t you do some of your touchpad work […]

movie rewatch: Live Free or Die Hard

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

According to wikipedia, the movie was almost called Die Hard 4.0, which admittedly makes more sense with the actual content of the film. But as a New Hampshire resident, I love the title ‘Live Free or Die Hard,’ which is shamelessly yanked from our state motto. It makes a good movie to rewatch, although I […]

as humidity reaches 100%, motivation drops to zero

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

Thank goodness for laundry, because without a washer and dryer my total productivity for yesterday would have been zero. (I even completed all three steps — wash, dry, AND put away!) That was really it, though. [image from, via google image search]

good stuff from today (part two)

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

The heat is out of here! It’s been a couple of hot nights for sleeping, since we are AC-free and I’m weird about fans. (I don’t like fans blowing on me at night, and the white noise freaks me out for no discernible reason.) But right now I’m actually wearing pants instead of shorts, and […]

good stuff from today (part one)

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

I love these: I’ve rearranged my budget so I can buy a whole bunch of them (48 ::cough::) at a time, and I eat them for breakfast. Or I did, until I ran out and there Were No More. The company calls this an “out of stock;” I call it a Breakfast Disaster. I had […]

Final tally at the staff meeting: Out of 13 total “required” attendees, we got 9. Excuses included: *’flight didn’t make it back in time after my 8 day vacation’ *’out of town’ *’working at my other job’ *’I’m giving my two weeks notice, does that get me excused?’ A crazy day all around!

I am trying to take things less seriously this week, so here is a lolrus instead of an otter! Way to go hanging onto that bukkit, lolrus!

Ah, the monthly staff meeting. Or every other monthly. This is our third this year, so I would call it a bi-monthly staff meeting except that gets confusing — is it once every two months, or twice every one month? Anyway, the staff meeting is required. Back when I was staff, I loved staff meetings. […]

how many people could possibly want to see this movie?

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Netflix refuses to send me “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.” Crazy, right? It’s listed as “Very Long Wait,” and Netflix keeps sending me random selections from my queue instead (I never pay attention to what order things are in past the first one or two dvds, so I have been perpetually surprised by the arrivals […]

fic rec o’ the day

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Exclusive, by copperbadge This is the one where a reporter comes and stays with the Avengers for two weeks. (Also the one with virtual baseball and Hulk having playtime.) I like this fic because really, nothing happens — it’s the ultimate kitchen table story. The rest of the meal is spent listening to Thor retell […]
