‘Rise of the Guardians’ quotes

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

A perfect Easter movie! (And one that improves upon second viewing, which — I wasn’t sure, but I liked it better the second time around!) Quote time! “Shoo, with your pointy heads. Why are you always under boot?”
 -North “Hang on, hang on. You mean to say you summoned me here, three days before Easter, […]

some days it’s a delicate negotiation

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Recently I’ve been very gung ho about eating more fruits and veggies. Partially because I love achievable goals and counting things, which come together nicely when I find myself thinking, “hey, maybe I should aim for more than ‘about one’ serving of green things per day.” But sometimes things are not so simple. Yesterday kind […]

fic rec o’ the day

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

This week at work I had a total Russell moment. There was an older gentleman at the register, and I kept offering him things — a receipt, a bag, a free magazine — and he kept saying no. I swear, it was on the tip of my tongue to say, “But I have to give […]

life imitating life

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Back in 2008, I wrote a nanowrimo novel called Dragon in the Room (which I would totally link to, except that googledocs is causing me 99 problems right now, and one of them is that apparently I’m the only one who can see my files despite carefully checking and rechecking my settings). Anyway, the story […]

March fic!

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

This is not the fic I was planning to write this month, but it’s what I ended up with. (I’m torn between my immense dislike for the events that take place on Arrow, and my immense love for the show’s supporting characters.) Title: Let Me Guess Author: marcicat Rating: PG-13 Word Count: 1900 Fandom: Arrow […]

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Finally smelled like spring this morning at work! (Still doesn’t really *feel* like spring, but at least it’s starting to feel like it will eventually get here.) HUGS! [pic grabbed from good stuff happened today]

a synergy of viewing

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

It turns out bluemeridian and I both watched ‘Rise of the Guardians’ yesterday, and apparently we’ve also both spent time since them reading fanfic. Here’s one grabbed from bluemeridian’s pinboard: Bunnymund visits grown-up Sofie, by anonymous (kink!meme fill, but totally gen) “This one’s new.” Bunny settles on the bench next to her and drops a […]

movie review: Rise of the Guardians

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

(Not to be confused with ‘Legend of the Guardians’ — that was the one with the owls. This is the one with Jack Frost.) Much to my surprise, I liked it! Some disturbing imagery (particularly with regards to the defeat of Pitch), but I thought the movie left the door wide open for a redemption […]

current favorite fic for a show I’m not watching

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

I do not watch Person of Interest. But! Some of the fic is really good, so here’s one I liked. (Plus, it’s by astolat!) Love And Marriage, by astolat Harold and John get married. Bear wears his service vest. “Harold,” John said, “are you asking me to marry you for your money?” “Well, Mr. Reese,” […]
