June/July fic is finished! Will do a read-through and post tomorrow. Thank goodness for my final set of notes, scribbled on a post-it at lunch today: TS shows up FT sleeping @ MSF video hugging “can you screencap that?” Hey Gene, she wrote

I call that a good day’s work

It appears I have not been doing my fair share of filling the internet with adorable cat pictures! Here is one (phone pic, which is a great excuse but I really am just that bad at photography) from this evening of the lovely Kismet. (With a cameo by Grumpy Bear!)

My town sends out a weekly email, right? Every week, at the end, there’s a link to the local Community Action Partnership, and the headline says “Pregnant? New Baby? CAP Can Help!” And every week, I think, ‘Wouldn’t that make a great Captain America fic?’

Out of the blue, my nook decided to deny the existence of all my downloaded files this afternoon. Zero files; no files here. Obvs, first thing I did was panic and freak out. Then I had a vague memory of all of this happening before. And lo! I found my post about the last time […]

I can’t believe I spent 11 hours at work today having an awesome day (for real!), and then in the last five minutes my boss questioned whether I was “stressed” based on a secondhand account of an interaction I had with a customer today and I’ve spent the last two and a half hours mentally […]

Thanks for sticking it out through sloth week! The weather is much cooler today, plus I was back at work anyway, where there is AC and ice cream. Two Stories I Read Today (Instead of Writing. Or Working. Or Basically Any Of The Things I Planned To Do.) Pacific Rim Ao, by zosofi Wouldn’t a […]

it did seem cooler while I was laughing

Okay, no, it’s still Really Hot. But a video of Hank Green singing about it being too hot still made me laugh! It’s not about the current heat, but that didn’t impact it’s topical nature for me.
