notes from the field (trip)

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

1. The Long Drive North I didn’t have to drive — yay! 2. The Boat Ride Combining brunch with boating is *way* less boring than just boating on its own. Shoutout to the coffee gal on her first day of a new summer job! 3. The Inn Holy wow, I’ve never been in an actual […]

brb, goin’ on a field trip

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

For work! Fingers crossed for good weather and good spirits. Do I like boats? I’m not sure. I’m liking the clear scheduling of mealtimes, though. (Note: I’m supposed to be coming up with a “team building activity.” Does trying to eat three saltines and then whistle count as team building?)

THOR: the fanfic

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

Okay, I enjoyed *all* of these! Clearly, Darcy is the Mike of her team! so he won’t break, by hariboo_smirks Still, she can’t help think it must get lonely up on that roof all day with only his thoughts and books on special relativity. She gets bored just thinking about it. Uru, by sheffiesharpe Long […]

“I do like ducklings.”

I found another one! Because one can never have too many icons of birds on one foot, right?

pardon me, I seem to have accidentally acquired another fandom

I blame bluemeridian (but in the good way!), because this link showed up on my pinboard network via bluemeridian’s links. When goblins steal Sarah’s feather duster (and a pair of pink stilettos), the Goblin King sends her a letter of apology (with a replacement duster and some leather boots). Thus begins a series of letters […]

Every once in a while wordpress pops up a little message on my screen, letting me know there’s a new version available, and would I please update, like, now? As far as I can tell, there are three options for how this upgrade works: 1. Everything is fine. 2. The upgrade fails, leaving me with […]

hang on, something’s not right here…

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Traditionally, there is a season between winter and summer, right? I believe it’s called spring, but we appear to have skipped it this year, so I can’t be sure. Really — last Thursday it was raining and *so* cold. I wore a turtleneck and long underwear under my jeans. Today I’m barefoot and wearing a […]

book review: The Forever War

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

One of my coworkers gave me this book (The Forever War, by Joe Haldeman) and said I might like it. Then he kept asking if I’d read it, which apparently is the best way to get me to do something. Finally I read it last night just so I could start saying yes. 1. If […]

wait, what?

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

So usually my dreams make no sense at all, which is cool with me. And I didn’t really notice anything odd about last night’s dreams when I woke up, except in a general, ‘gee, maybe I shouldn’t think so much about Tron before I go to bed’, ’cause that whole Tron/Leverage crossover heist thing happening […]

fic rec o’ the day

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

I have *no* idea what’s happening in Glee right now — who the heck is attending where? Do we still care? But this fic embodied the ridiculous-yet-somehow-endearing thing I loved about the show. Also, it made me laugh, and that’s always a good thing. A Nation of Two, by novelized It’s the dumbest thing, but […]
