I wrote ~1800 words last night. Of two different stories. Both involving Tara. ♥ And posting some questions to btvsangel_canon I got the following as a comment: "Not Sure What You're Asking For, Or The Correct Answer, But It Sounds Like You're Writing Something Interesting. Can I have A Link To It When It's Done?" *glees* [And wow, I hadn't realized quite how many Tara fics I've written.]
Random factoid I learned: Sean Maher was on a Season 1 CSI: Miami episode (1.21) and had a recurrent role in Season 6 Party of Five. Why is only Season 1 of Party of Five out on DVD?
Also: athene can say "would you like fries with that" in an ancient dead language.
My mom made sock puppets for her pseudo-nephew Murphy's birthday. Steve Two and Super Steve. So I've been quoting "The Prom." The accompanying note is a thing of comic beauty
I read my mom b_cavis' The 10 Commandments of Fanfiction (edited slightly, for the mild HP6:HBP 'ship spoiler, for one) and she enjoyed muchly. (And the word "squee" made me think of you every time.)
Remember that 10 Interests Meme that required you actually count off? Well some clever/kind soul turned into a programmy whosie so you just plug in your username and it does the work for you. Mine:
LJ Interests meme results
- correcting people:
- giving gifts of love:
- mix tapes/cds:
- potato products:
POTATOES! So yummy. There are certain variants on the potato that I'm not keen on eating, but generally I ♥ foods made out of potatoes.
- unique livejournal interests:
Enter your LJ user name, and 10 interests will be selected from your interest list.
I am impressed that when I tried to do this on my own [Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.] I actually got the exact same results.
It may actually be time for me to update my LJ likes/interests. (The fact that it's labelled "Interests" but is used largely as a list of "Likes" -- and that's even how LJ tells you to do it, that they should finish the sentence "I like: " -- is frustrating.) The "dislikes" tool is also tempting.
sexonastick gave me an explanation of why everyone insists that Tom Cruise is omgsogay that actually made sense to me.
An agency found my resume via monster. Color me unexcited about going in for an interview tomorrow (two months made me le jaded) but I never got around to shoeshopping yesterday, and they're conveniently located right near South Station so I don't even have to trek anywhere. Another agency called later, and I'm actually psyched about them 'cause they place a lot of editorial assistants, which would be way funner than basic admin. So I have a morning appointment with them up in Faneuil Hall. And then I have a 4pm actual job interview out near the Children's Museum.
Also: Today is [was] Wednesday? When did that happen?
Apparently I missed Green Street rioting in the Quad and not succeeding in getting today called Mountain Day. Oh, Smith.
The file that I dump stuff I'm not ready to post into LJ yet has decided it's corrupt or something and that it contains no data, and I just realized that it has [had] my Serenity writeup, complete with reactions to various other people's reactions, article excerpts, etc. I think that's the only major thing I lost, but . . . grr.
This story gives the best explanation I have seen of how James Potter changes from the adolescent we see to the adult we hear about (a disjunction which frustrates me muchly in canon).
I finished reading The Pillow Book. Somebody wants to write me fic slashing her and the Empress, right? *looks at gishmi1ish*
(Oh, and lilithchilde? "In Principio" is definitely recommended.)
IM from my brother in conversation: u realize you just capitalized an IM but misused "write"
