keep it G

Monday, October 31st, 2011

(As in, G-rated, since I’m still at work. NOT on one of the computers my boss can remote-view, but still — work.) How much do I want to blow off the next hour and read gyzym’s new fic? SO MUCH. I’d also love to go to my pinboard account and peer happily at all the […]

posting from work

Monday, October 31st, 2011

I’m on lunch break (where “lunch break” means I already ate my sandwich hours ago, but I’m officially off the clock to use the internet). Posting from work, because although we have heat and light again, phones/cable/internet are still sadly non-functional at home. I miss the internet! STORM NEWS There’s a major-ish highway nearby, yes? […]

SNOW (ikr?)

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

Our actual first snow came Thursday evening — big wet snowflakes falling on my windshield on the drive home. It piled up more than anyone seemed to expect, and made a lovely coating on the cars the next morning. (Lovely because I didn’t have anywhere to go, and could just stay home.) Now it’s snowing […]

tumblr recs

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

Two lovely fics from gyzym’s tumblr. Who knew you could have so much fun without capital letters? First: the one where Steve is wow-ed by infomercials, and Tony sings in the shower. how steve rogers (kinda) learns to dance, by gyzym steve ends up in the room next to tony’s by accident. And second: the […]

movie quotes: Captain America

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Re-watch complete! (Doing work while watching — not complete.) But I have quotes! (Though really, the best parts are the montages, and they don’t have any dialogue!) “When you brought a 90-pound asthmatic onto my army base, I let it slide. I thought ‘what the hell’ — maybe he’d be useful to you; like a […]

this is later, technically speaking

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

I got Captain America from Netflix today, and I thought to myself, “Hey, I should see what I wrote about it when we saw it before.” (Mostly so I’d know if I could get away with a second “reaction” post.) This is what I wrote before: Captain America ~ better than I expected! More later. […]

this fic made my day

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

I’ve been bribing myself to get up and go to work with fic. This morning was surprisingly awesome, thanks to: Mr. July, by jibrailis Summary: The Avengers do one of those charity calendars, which leads to revelations all around. QUOTE FOR LOLS: The Avengers worked, well, not seamlessly because it was pretty damn hard to […]

daily oops (with bonus lol)

Monday, October 24th, 2011

I have 2 (main) gmail accounts, right? One for home, and one for work. But I usually stay logged into the work as my default so that I can update work docs (daily TDL, srsly, I swear I don’t work at a daycare, it just feels like it sometimes). Which is all a long way […]

daily thank-you

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

Thank you, Avengers fandom, for embracing with such wholeheartedness this basic fic formula: [Steve or Tony] gets amnesia! (Temporarily, of course.) They assume they are romantically involved with [Steve or Tony, whichever one *doesn’t* have amnesia]. Misunderstandings! Confusion! CHAOS ENSUES! (Followed by happy ending.) PS: ILU.

Sunday randoms

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

1 random luxury feature I wish my car had: A heated steering wheel — seriously, why has this not been invented/magically showed up in my car yet? 1 random thing I worry about: Dropping my keys down a storm drain — there’s one in the parking lot of my local Panera, and I live in […]
