fic rec Friday

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Somehow this week I stumbled back into reading Labyrinth fic, which is always a surprise. And I realized I had apparently never bookmarked that one where Sarah becomes the librarian at Hogwarts, which was also a surprise. Of Dreamers and Journeys, by Mystical_Magician The Labyrinth changed Sarah in more ways than one. Seven years later […]

workaday Thursday

I have been confusing dates all week. What month is this? What year is it? *This morning I tried to find more information on registering for an event, only to realize (after an embarrassingly long time) that it happened back in 2015. *Yesterday, I was baffled by why we would be receiving 100+ orders “this […]

weekend prep Wednesday

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

It’s 4th of July weekend, and that means it’s time for INDEPENDENCE DAY MOVIE VIEWING! That’s right — at some point this weekend (or possibly on the 4th itself), I will be watching INDEPENDENCE DAY and also INDEPENDENCE DAY 2. (Did the second movie have a special name? I don’t remember. *ETA: it did — […]

notes from a weekend walk

The backstory: the local state park has three mountains in it, or at least there are three things that are called mountains. [Note: this led me to a fascinating look at the difference between hills and mountains, which is far more vague than I expected. None of these three land-forms are higher than 2000 feet, […]

Gosh, it sure is Monday today. Would you look at that. Who would have thought. some more random thoughts for the day: *If your workplace is giving you July 4th off (Tuesday) but not the 3rd, today’s a great day to start complaining about it, if you haven’t already. *How did I not notice that […]

I was charmed and intrigued by the google doodle for Oskar Fischinger this week. Oskar Fischinger’s 117th Birthday Very fun to play with, plus I always enjoy learning more about the backstory behind the doodles. “I feel incredibly proud of my family and am delighted to be the daughter of Oskar and Elfriede Fischinger. It […]

Question of the day: why sleep on just one blanket when you could sleep on a whole pile of blankets?

Between Stimulus and Response (There Is A Space), by blackidyll My first thought after I finished reading this fic was ‘I enjoyed that so much more than I thought I would!’ Plus, cats! (PS the cats are briefly in danger but are totally okay!) “What the hell.” It’s not a question, but Q figures the […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Last night I dreamed about tidying, and also my plants. I mean, my dream!plants were pretty neat, but it turns out dream!me also is bad at watering properly. That’s got nothing to do with work, but it *is* Thursday, and I *am* going to work, and I didn’t feel like I had much else to […]

distracted by Power Rangers

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

No work thoughts right now, still trying to figure out the Power Rangers movie. Here’s what’s tripping me up: there were other spaceships. (Okay, I’m only guessing they were space-flight-capable. But it seems like a safe guess.) When Zordon does his flashback explanation, multiple ships fly overhead. So who were they? Not Zordon’s team. They […]
