Birthday + WriterCon + Fireworks roundup

My birthday is this Sunday (July 9). Come for a lazy hangout at my apartment that afternoon. (And pray for decent weather -- by which we mean low humidity, as I have no ac. ::watches everyone suddenly make other plans::)
Layna, can you bring Apples to Apples?
Everyone is free to bring board games, other people, etc.
I'll be making fruit salad and getting chips+guac on Saturday. Suggestions/offerings of other edibles welcome.
Let me know if you need directions (or, ya know, just an address ;) ).
Please let me know if you're driving. We have a driveway, but it's not _that_ big, so if you could come by T that would be great. (There's probably a bus from Alewife, is definitely one from Davis -- or you can walk from Davis.)

Who's doing tonight's WriterCon chat?

(P.S. Sharon, this answers y/our capslock question ;) )

Yay for updated schedule of events (complete with descriptions). Yes I am a huge planner ahead.

I am telling myself I don't need to do a dry run of Silver Line to Logan.

Total Ficlets: 8
Fandoms: 3
Pairings: 6 (and a threesome)
Word Length Range: 224-717
Total Word Count: 3545

I, for one, am very impressed. When's the last time I wrote 3thousand words of _anything_ (ficwise)?

And I wrote pairings I'd never thought of (and wrote them well) as well as pairings I already liked. And I don't think I did much of telling the same story just with different names.

Fics will be posted (backdated) to the ficjournal at some point, and up on the website for next month's update.
