Oy, how scattered can I be? Things I forgot at the apartment this morning: + yogurt (for lunch -- though I do have a sandwich) + cell phone + floppy disk on which I'd drafted an LJ entry and an e-mail as I have no Internet in my room
I like me some dark fic but usually wouldn't read "horror," so I was surprised at how many of the nominees I'd already read. [To clarify: I'm reading the nominees 'cause I'm one of them so I wanna vote.]
Also: It's v. hard to write Reavers believably (getting into their heads, that is) in large part of course because we have so little to go on from canon.
I find the pairing representation in the non-canon romance spread interesting. Slash gets its own category, which makes me think "non-canon romance" should be retitled "non-canon het" (and how much some of the nominees can be listed as "romance" is of course its own question). Oh, and there is a canon romance category, which of course begs its own questions.
Oh, and people still do the Leave-a-comment-Then-link-to-the-resulting-URL thing that drives me nuts.
“Why am I so _tired_? I'm just puttering around this evening, trying to figure out what the heck I wanna have for dinner, and actually y'know getting some work done, and thinking, gee, I should really have dinner and I'm not really that hungry and now I feel really tired and it's only 8:00 and I've been getting 8 hours of sleep _consistently_ since I moved in.... So I'm thinking, Cailin got me this yummy cupcake at the end of work, am I crashing from the pseudo-sugar-high? And then it occurs to me that it's dark and rainy out and has been all day -- I just hate to think that I'm, like, seasonal affective, 'cause I'm usually _ so_ _not_; so I hate that the dark and the rain would make me tired or whatever. 'Cause I really _like_ the rain.
And now I'm curious as to how one boils water in this house because I was going to have peanut butter crackers with the cinnamon raisin peanut butter that I have from a while back, and make mint cocoa that my brother got for me out of a freebie box, and then I thought, "Wait, how do I boil water here? There's no tea kettle." So I'm thinking that I may have to boil water in the microwave, in the mug. Which I think is kind of lame. So I'm thinking that I'm gonna add a tea kettle to the list of things I need to get from Kitchens Etc. or wherever I end up going when I go home this weekend and do a shopping run, and now I think that perhaps a tea kettle is really not what I wanna be bringing back with me on the train, so maybe that will be another excursion. I hear that there's a Target that one can get to by-- via bus from this apartment. So maybe that will be it, because really, while I like microwaves, I disapprove of boiling water in the microwave.”
