memorable quote Monday

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Last night I was reading Choices, by AlphaFlyer, and — although it has nothing to do with the story — I couldn’t stop thinking about Chakotay’s quote from the show: “You were working for her. She was working for them. Was anyone on that ship working for me?” (What memories! Voyager made some a lot […]

September door art complete! (Embellishments by me, base picture — “The Resiliance of McCarthy Creek,” by Laurel K. Hendee — is from a 2014 calendar.)

It’s the last weekend in August, and I’m trying to figure out a September door decoration. … thinkathinkathinka … Well, once I come up with something, pics to follow!

fic rec Friday

Friday, August 28th, 2015

A fun fic for a fun day — got today off from work, did a lot of walking, read some fic… Unfortunately my workplace would probably notice if I took *every* Friday off… Paternal Error (In Which Clint Keeps Picking Up Strays), by EVVS AU where Clint still has a secret farm, but somehow winds […]

true fact

I have been alive for more than three decades, and I still don’t really understand the difference between a cucumber and a zucchini. (I mean, I know what google says. I googled. Don’t even get me started on squash. Why are vegetables so tricksy?)

muscle memory

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

I try not to save my login passwords (okay, with some exceptions) because: 1. I figure it’s probably good brain exercise to try to remember them. 2. It helps a lot when I try to log in from somewhere else and *have* to remember. 3. I feel it adds to my quirky persona at work. […]

I am not adapted for this

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

The weather right now is 100% fine, as long as I don’t have to move. Sadly, moving is actually a crucial component of to-do list items like ‘make lunch for work’ and ‘feed the cat.’ On the other hand, there’s not a lot of times in the year when hanging out on the balcony at […]

I’ve recced this fic at least twice before, and read it many more times than that, but I always enjoy the re-reading! Plus, it’s the proud source of not one, but two supremely memorable quotes: “It would be bad to contribute to the cultural death of your people.” And: He’s already figured out that it’s […]

sunflower Sunday

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Took a quick walk yesterday, not too far off the beaten path (as evidenced by the road sign!), and suddenly, sunflowers! (Absolutely no clue why the preview shows up sideways. Pic is right-ways up if you click through.)

Saturday, best day

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

Now my coworkers are recommending that I watch ‘The NeverEnding Story.’ I’m skeptical, after the whole ‘Hocus Pocus’ debacle, but I did find this interesting tidbit over at wikipedia: Ende felt that this adaptation’s content deviated so far from his book that he requested that production either be halted or the film’s title be changed; […]
