sneaking in tomorrow’s post tonight

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

I can’t start NaNoWriMo early, but I can get my November email-to-myself taken care of. Hello! NOVEMBER. Wow — it’s practically the end of the year already, and what a long, strange trip it’s been. Lots of happenings up ahead in the month, and fingers crossed it’s smooth sailing. But on land, which reminds me […]

NaNoWriMo Countdown

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

We are currently at T-minus ‘yikes, I probably should have come up with a better idea.’ (Still trying to decide if I should stay up till midnight to write the ceremonial first 100 words, or pretend I’ll write something before work tomorrow morning.)

fic rec o’ the day

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Behold the mighty power of crossovers: To Fly Like a Moron, by shadydave The Avengers fic I didn’t know I was waiting for; a crossover with ‘The Pumaman.’ (As the author says, “No, seriously.”) A Darcy-gets-superpowers fic, where the powers aren’t all that super, Coulson knows everything, and hilarious one-liners are hilarious. “So what you’re […]

Hurricane Sandy prep list

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

1. Charge electronics. 2. Fill up water bottles. 3. Find flashlight(s). 4. Post about hurricane prep. (With classic internet!optional steps 5. ??? and 6. Profit!) Also, I saw this sign at one of the schools on my way to work today: DON’T FORGET A BOOK FOR THE FRANKENSTORM Good advice!

finished up ‘The Unusuals’

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

1. First off, the cliffhanger is not so much a cliffhanger as a plot point that is not resolved. (The guy’s in the same situation he was in episode one, he just maybe has a different perspective on it?) 2. The second set of episodes can be viewed pretty much as completely separate from the […]

very belated pictures

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Full disclosure: I did not take any pictures while on my work-cation. However, my traveling companion did, and we finally got synched up to share pictures this week. PICTURES FROM A WORK-CATION IN BALTIMORE, CIRCA 2012 Baltimore has some lovely water features! Yes, I did take my shoes off and play in this. (Totally allowed! […]

my favorite part of nanowrimo — planning!

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

1. House hunting! (I found this site to be particularly useful this year. All the info needed for novel-ing is totally free!) 2. NaNoWriMo playlist! (Pretty sure I need to get “Anna Sun” by Walk The Moon this weekend.) 3. NaNoWriMo bling! (aka puttering around the nano site) 4. Making up conversations that will never […]

are Halloween lights a thing now?

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

There are five houses on my drive home that are currently decorated with sparkly strands of lights — the type that might be called “Christmas lights” if it was, you know, anywhere near Christmas. One house is using entirely red-orange lights (LOTS of them!), so I’m assuming they are specifically Halloween-oriented. Or they just really […]

Monday joy

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Sooooo…. It’s Monday. Thank goodness for the internet! From I Can Has Cheezburger: And from Hello, tailor: “These promo pictures truly are a reassuring balm because thanks to them, we no longer have to worry that Iron Man wouldn’t appear in Iron Man 3, or that Robert Downey Jr had suddenly become non-handsome. We can […]
