Happy New Year

One clever soul made a Firefly calendar.  Yes I will be printing that out when I return to work on Tuesday.

Year in Review:
I graduated from Smith College and got a "real job."

Okay, a slightly longer list of highlights: I also wrote a seminar paper on Little Red Riding Hood and sex, got rejected from Ph.D. programs, flew to Virginia last-minute decision for Spring Break, got trained to bartend and took a massage therapy class, saw Serenity on the bigscreen at Advance Screening #2 and on Opening Weekend, was involuntarily unemployed for 2 months, went to a slew of concerts, scored a secretarial gig at Harvard Business School and went through 4 sets of professors in 3 departments in 2 buildings before finally getting close to a "permanent" position.  Year-end memes are weird because my life has been defined by academic calendars.  Any highlights I left out?

In my e-mail:
I know I suck and its been a long time since I've written, but I just saw the posting for the 2005 Strawberry Awards (http://mysite.verizon.net/vzenvl6n/bsastrawberries/id21.html) and I thought of your story about River and Simon and I wanted to nominate in the alternate romance catagory.  CSI never gets the respect it deserves and your story really speaks to the complexity of the matter.  If you don't mind could I have its full title, your nom de plum, and a link for where its posted so I can submit it.

This reminded me of the year's fic production meme that's been going around, but my attempts to fill it out just were not succeeding, so I'm just doing a list of everything I posted in 2005.  (And wow, a year is a long time.  So many of these I feel like I wrote so long ago.)
