fic rec Friday

Friday, May 31st, 2019

Sometimes I stumble into fics from other peoples’ bookmarks lists on AO3 and think to myself ‘what a bunch of charming asshole weirdos.’ The Dawn Will Break Before You, by thepartyresponsible “Okay, heartbreaker,” he says, “how much to put the tires back on the car?” Jason rolls his eyes and gestures at him with the […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, May 30th, 2019

Yesterday afternoon I wound up in a very long meeting, at which my presence was necessary for perhaps 10 minutes. (Which is fine. Sometimes it’s good to be minimally involved.) But it’s standard in my workplace to bring your computer with you to meetings (in case you need to look something up, of course! definitely […]

it’s a nice jacket, okay?

More Guardian re-watch ramblings! *I think I appreciated the camping trip arc more the second time, possibly because I didn’t have to pay attention to the plot and could focus on other things. (*Such as the knowledge that the ONE and ONLY time Shen Wei would wear jeans and a parka was truly deserving of […]

back to work

Tuesday, May 28th, 2019

Any time I go back to work after a long weekend, my brain has mixed feelings about it. 1/3 of brain: ‘Yeah, I can do this — I will exchange my time and effort for money! Back on that work week schedule, aww yeah!’ 1/3 of brain: ‘Remember, work has free coffee.’ 1/3 of brain: […]

always a good day for this

feels like summer!

*Best thing about caramelizing onions in the crock pot overnight — even though I slept in and am still in my pajamas, I have *already* been productive today, because onions! ACHIEVEMENT ACTIVATED. *But I’m still hoping to do other things too, because it’s domestic chores day! Time for cooking, laundry, and art! *Totally random other […]

you know, that feeling

Saturday, May 25th, 2019

Ahahahahaha you know that feeling when you haven’t written anything for a year and it seems like you’re going to be stuck reading re-hashes of the MCU until the end of time, and then suddenly you’ve watched 40 episodes of a Chinese web series and thought to yourself ‘yay, but wait, then what happened?’ And […]

the more you know

Friday, May 24th, 2019

I’ve mentioned before that my workplace has internet filters that block AO3 access (why???). Personally, I don’t see why I’m allowed to access tumblr but not AO3, but it’s not like they asked me about it. ANYWAY! It was mentioned to me (thanks, starandrea!) that perhaps an incognito tab would resolve this issue. AND IT […]

it’s a Guardian day!

Re-watched the web novelist episode last night. Things that confuse me: *None of them have cases on their phones?! *So, the web novelist — Zhu Jiu appears to have been manipulating the situation for some time, but for what purpose? Not that the deaths of some random people we never hear about again aren’t of […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

Last week I got free-lunch Friday for the meet-and-greet interview, which sure was a thing. The interviewee was in their FOURTH HOUR of interviews by that point, and my main impression of them was that they were very tired of it all. But! Also hanging on to patience and tact with impressive determination. The BEST […]
