fic rec o’ the day

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

I laughed, I giggled, I chortled. (Fair warning: I did not actually follow what was happening with all the plans and counter-plans. This did not detract from my enjoyment.) Definitely a rec! The Consultants, by thebratqueen White Collar crosses over with the Avengers in a case fic that is awesome, and features Neal pretending to […]

Tuesday’s Story

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

At my workplace — actually, in our parking lot — there is a local farm that does a CSA dropoff from 3-6ish every Tuesday afternoon.

“I’ll turn him into a flea. A harmless little flea. And then I’ll put that flea in a box, and then I’ll put that box inside of another box, and then I’ll mail that box to myself, and when it arrives — ah ha ha ha ha — I’ll smash it with a hammer! It’s […]

It’s at times like these I’m reminded of the quote from The Muppet Christmas Carol: “That was it? That was the speech? It was dumb! It was obvious! It was pointless! It was — short.

For reasons unknown, I sort of want tomorrow to be a ‘layabout reading and pinball’ day, which means getting all the weekend chores done today (Sunday is back-to-work day). Still left to do: -more laundry (egads, why did I pick *this* weekend to do so much laundry?) -clean stuff, like dishes and dusty surfaces -exercise […]

I couldn’t resist this when it popped up on my pinboard network: Fandom: Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Music: Care Bears Countdown by The Care Bears (1986) It’s a vid for Festivid, with the vidder still currently anonymous. The vid’s title is Send a Wish Out in the Dark, and it’s well worth the one minute […]

fic rec o’ the day

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

For reasons somewhat beyond my understanding, I have been watching some episodes of Iron Man: Armored Adventures. (It’s the Marvel-approved animated high school AU.) And it seems like every time I watch an episode, I want to re-read this story: Living In The Future, by Closer “It’s not like a guy who’s been in the […]

(not actually a) snow day

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Last night the weather forecast predicted 6 to possibly as much as 12 inches of snow. This morning — nope! Just a dusting, and now the sun is shining. Happy Birthday to me! No shoveling required!
