holiday work* fun

Friday, October 31st, 2014

(*Not that I’m implying anyone would take their valuable work time to animate a yeti. Unless they wanted to. On Halloween. Which is today.) Made With Code – Yeti Show! Super simple and fun! (FYI there’s sound once you hit ‘Play.’)

crazy, or crazy like a fox?

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

One of my coworkers claims to be unable to hear anything else when her earbuds are in. People talking next to her, people loudly calling her name, loud noises — nothing. 1. I find this hard to believe, to some extent, because I use also earbuds at work, and I can consistently overhear conversations going […]

NaNoWriMo 2014 novel created!

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

I just “created” my novel over at the nanowrimo site. That’s two words sorted, right? It has a title! (Subject to change.) It has a genre! (Because isn’t everything kind of an adventure, from a certain point of view?) It has no synopsis. (Heck, if I knew what it was about, that would be a […]

work lols

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

My new work schedule means that my partner in crime coworker and I are the last people to leave the building in the evening, so we shut off the lights and set the alarm. This has been going well for the last couple weeks. Last night we ran into a slight problem. The alarm keypad […]

“best” shipping route ever

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Let me preface this by saying I think it’s pretty amazing that LL Bean shipped anything at all on a Saturday. So, thanks! It still made me laugh when I checked the tracking update. Start location? Freeport, Maine. Current location? Chelmsford, Massachusetts. Eventual destination? New Hampshire. You have to drive through New Hampshire to get […]

1. felt unmotivated about nanowrimo 2. felt unmotivated about going outside 3. felt unmotivated about changing out of pajamas

I am continually delighted when art by Claire Mojher pops up on my tumblr dash. Just recently there was this adorbs Halloween cat posted for inktober! And one more, because this is a message I definitely needed to hear right now: [art credit for both to Claire Mojher, via tumblr]

fic list

Friday, October 24th, 2014

I received an awesome comment from Amarin_Rose earlier this week on one of my fics, and it mentioned that perhaps there could be a list of what order they go in, since some of them are connected. (At first I thought chronological would cover it, but then I realized I’d posted some of them in […]

thanks, laundry

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Another day to be grateful for laundry. It’s already got that feel like not a whole lot of much is going to get done today. I’ve been sneezing all morning (which is weird, I’m usually more a sniffler than a sneezer), and it’s gray and rainy outside — I’ve been concocting excuses already to get […]

*cue dramatic music*

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

TEAM BUILDING IS ONCE AGAIN UPON US! Yes, that’s right. After a reprieve in the third quarter, there’s been a push to hold a team building event in October. There was much debate. Fighting words, passive aggressive posturing, all that stuff. The final word is: we’re going to a bar. I mean, it’s a restaurant, […]
