zeitgeist & ice

Monday, December 31st, 2012

The Google Zeitgeist 2012 video is up. I watched it at lunch and was definitely feeling teary-eyed by the end. Then again, part of that might have been exhaustion from dealing with this: (That’s the *inside* of the store’s front door this morning. I only got a chance to see that after I’d used my […]

oh work

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

It seems fitting to get in one more ‘oh work’ post before the end of the year. Today was the day for Ice Adventures. The building is getting new siding, but the project has been held up by rain, holidays, and, most recently, snow. (Lots of snow.) Which is really just my way of saying […]

movie review: Tower Heist

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

I was supposed to be getting ‘The Big Year’ so my family could watch it again, but somehow ended up with ‘Tower Heist’ instead. Which — they’re not really that similar, actually. I vaguely remembered the preview for ‘Tower Heist.’ Said preview left me with the Strong Impression that the money was hidden under the […]

my year in pictures

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

I really wanted to do a ‘year in review’ kind of post, but I got a little bogged down. It was a busy year! So here’s my year in pictures — the first picture I posted each month. JANUARY [also my birthday month!] FEBRUARY [I did, frequently, wonder if I was taking crazy pills.] MARCH […]

Yuletide 2012 (apparently Yuletide is the short version of “While We Tell of Yuletide Treasure Fanfiction Challenge,” which I definitely did not remember) is like a vortex. A vortex that eats time. Have a few days to spare? Yuletide is awesome! Have lots of work to do? Yuletide is still awesome, but may cause side […]

2012 fic writing year in review

Friday, December 28th, 2012

I have a list of things I want to do before the end of the year. This seemed easier. January Warn the neighbors “So, that’s the situation here, I wouldn’t even have mentioned it, really, except there was the chance you’d spontaneously decide to come back early, or, well — Steve thought you might be […]

Google Santa Tracker

Monday, December 24th, 2012

Google Santa Tracker Santa is currently “Jingling all the way,” and I have reached level 8 of the racing game. This seems like one of those sites you can sit your kid in front of on Christmas Eve so they stop pestering you about presents, which is probably why I find it so entertaining. (NORAD […]

this is not my holiday mini-fic

Sunday, December 23rd, 2012

Thanks to copperbadge, I was thinking about the movie ‘What’s Your Number‘ tonight. I watched it all the way through once, and was reminded of my immense disappointment when I realized that Colin Shea was not actually Jake Adams. Here’s how I wanted the movie to go: -So Ally (main character) and Jake (‘the one […]
