oh look, a Halloween miracle

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

I’m actually a little surprised that this fic took me two months to finish. I’d somehow jumbled up the time in my head to think it was all done in October. But it’s finished now, so we’ll call it a win. This is the second chapter of Criminal Mastermind (cleverly titled ‘Criminal Mastermind part 2’) […]

[I wish I had better sourcing for this — I first saw it on tumblr but have since lost track of it. The text on the bottom of the pic says, and I grabbed this captioned version from here.]

Some days it’s nice to look at a picture of a chicken wearing a reflective safety vest. [article from The Huffington Post, photo originally from Omlet]

The Care and Feeding of Lost Causes, by maskedfangirl It’s about Bruce and Clint post-Avengers movie, and what that would look like for two people SHIELD has absolutely no idea what to do with. Just a few of the things I liked: 1. Turning ‘thank you for your cooperation’ into an inside joke. 2. Hand […]

shooing meddling kids off my internet lawn

I have been chided by my coworker for not “understanding” that you have to keep your entire potential audience in mind when posting to facebook. Not kidding. Chided. They even tossed in the Spiderman “with great power” quote. Luckily, this was via email, so I had plenty of time to a) be pissed off, b) […]

things I learned this week

1. Miley isn’t coming in like a *rainbow,* she’s coming in like a *wrecking ball.* I like rainbow better, but I’ll admit wrecking ball does make more sense in the context of the song. 2. Putting orange lights around your porch railings looks like you’re decorating for Halloween. Putting multicolored lights (orange, green, purple) around […]

now I remember why I have two sleeping bags

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

When I left for work this morning, I left the cat’s blanket set up on the end of the bed like usual. I also left my sleeping bag on the bed (my cold weather ‘throw blanket’). It’s just now starting to get cold enough to actually need it, and this morning was the first time […]

Just finished my re-watch of Iron Man Armored Adventures (for fic writing purposes). [I love how people switch back and forth between code names and first names. I love how Gene falls back into teamwork so easily with Tony, Pepper, and Rhodey. I love how excited Nick Fury is about an alien invasion. And I […]
