The “Write or Die” Widget

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

I finally got around to trying Write or Die (“Putting the ‘Prod’ in Productivity”), after being frustrated all month by my inability to write anything when I wasn’t at work. Write or Die‘s Three Modes: Gentle Mode: A certain amount of time after you stop writing, a box will pop up, gently reminding you to […]

I wasn’t going to write about work again…

Friday, March 20th, 2009

I was completely done with work posts for the week. Completely. Didn’t want to write any more about work, be it job1 or job2. But then I was *at* job2, and things were… quiet. Quieter than Monday, even. And I started noticing something. See, from my desk, I’m right across the hall from the women’s […]

Share the love

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

You know what I love? People. The amazing power of individuals and groups to create something amazing and then share it with the world. (As a corollary, I also love the Internet, which makes this sharing not only possible, but practical.) Some things I’ve found to love recently: Big Dreams: OTW/Archive of Our Own These […]

HP fics titled “Bound”

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

I read one of these the other day, and then thought, “Wait… Have I read this before?” It’s a classic title, I’m telling you. Bound, by fojee Bound!, by Draeconin Bound, by lilyseyes There’s at least 2 others over at the Severus Snape FQF, which I seem to have lost my password for, and *many* […]

It’s like it was opposite day…

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

It’s funny, but on a day when I assumed I’d be doing *even less* than usual at job2, I think I may have done more useful things than ever! My list of Ways I Was Helpful Yesterday: 1. unlocked doors & turned lights on! 2. handed out master key (twice!) to people who’d left their […]

What I’m Doing (At Work) Today

Monday, March 16th, 2009

8:00 am – Wait for computer to boot up. Takes a long time. Consider there may be something wrong with computer. Decide it’s not really my job to worry about it. Add many artists to my Jango station 9:00 am – Boss of boss arrives. Damn. 9:30 am – Boss of boss goes to meeting. […]

Slice of Life SGA fics

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

For some reason, I love fics where John and Rodney go shopping together Especially to the grocery store, which is weird, because I’m not a big fan of going to grocery stores myself. Anyway, here’s some fics: Somewhere Else, Not Here, by 2ndary_author Out of the corner of his eye, John sees Rodney come wandering […]

Why I Love Wikipedia

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

In case you too spent the entire Race to Witch Mountain movie experience wondering, “where do I know that guy from?” Jack Bruno: Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock (Get Smart, and on the Daily Show for his role in Doom) Sara: AnnaSophia Robb (Because of Winn Dixie) Seth: Alexander Ludwig (I didn’t recognize him, but […]

Movie Review: Race to Witch Mountain

Friday, March 13th, 2009

Woohoo! First impression: suspenseful and action-y, without being *suspenseful* and *action-y* (like, I didn’t have to have a lie down and a have a glass of water when it was all over). Bonus Points For: -confirming that the train operator survived -sci-fi convention (with extra bonus Star Trek sound effects!) -excellent use of the casino […]

Power Rangers Rant

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Background: Wikipedia’s comprehensive entry on the Power Rangers phenomenon. Anyway, so there’s this show, right? Apparently, it’s for kids. So it has excellent everyone-friendly messages like: be nice to people! have integrity! teamwork is important! even bad people have good in them! be true to yourself and your friends will love you for who you […]
