fic rec Friday

Friday, March 31st, 2017

What is this? *Andrea wrote about sneaking snacks into detention? It’s the Power Rangers fic of my heart! this is totally what happened (which is not the actual title of this story by starandrea) “Oh, hey,” Billy said, like he’d forgotten they weren’t supposed to acknowledge each other too. “Jason brought snacks, but he says […]

accidentally a throwback Thursday

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

When I was in middle school (maybe eighth grade?), there was a time when it was a gray and rainy day and students were complaining, and a teacher said to us: “I don’t let the weather affect my mood.” (In retrospect, I’m pretty sure that was a lie.) But I remember rejecting it as a […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

You know what, I started writing a post about work, and then I got distracted by tumblr (as one does), and I found an epic story of pumpkin spice monkey bread that deserves to be shared so much more than my disorganized thoughts about corporate spending habits. check out this post by unpretty anyway this […]

forecast: fic day

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

It is cloudy today. Rain later. Apparently this is helping with our drought, which is awesome in the long run and just very dreary in the present moment. To counteract this, I’ve gone to my pinboard page and searched the word “summer.” That ought to keep me busy for a while. First up: last night’s […]

movie review: Power Rangers 2017

Monday, March 27th, 2017

Preview review: at no point in the movie did we see Zack do martial arts and/or a superhero pose on a train. Nor did we ever see all of them except one stand on a car and look at the night sky (ie. the poster). (But the poster is still cool, and based on their […]

Time for a personal day.

goin’ to the movies!

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Headed to the movies today with starandrea to see POWER RANGERS! Things I would love to see: 1. JUICE BAR 2. that thing where the rangers stand in a circle and all put their hands in and then they jump in the air and yell ‘power rangers!’ 3. Are the morphers a watch still? If […]

This one’s still a WIP, but I’ve enjoyed reading it so far (as of chapter 10), and sometimes I’m in the mood for WIPs I can subscribe to and have something pop up in my inbox periodically. Back to the Future: Episode VI The Clone Wars, by Ariel_Sojourner In which Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader […]

a thing I learned

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Apparently there is no widely recognized podcast rating system. Several episodes I’ve listened to have the itunes red E, but vary on whether the “explicit language” is bleeped out or presented as-is. And then there’s the pre-podcast warnings on content, which tend to offer vague ‘this podcast contains content which may not be suitable for […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

After talking about it for more than a year, the company I work for is shelling out for standing desks for their low-level minions (aka my department). They are scheduled to be installed this weekend, but — somewhat worryingly — no one seems completely clear what style of standing desk it will be. Will the […]
