New Thing to Worry About!

Ok. So the Fourth of July in a rural area may not be the best time for sensitive discourse and thoughtful behavior. But.
I was invited to a get-together by some sweet people. They have gone out of their way to be good to me. I know things have been hard on them the past few months and I haven’t been there because I’ve been fighting off my own nervous breakdown. They invited me over for a BBQ and fireworks and I was glad to go.

Things got iffy after that.Collapse )

So I decided to be the one to talk to about cute, gentle things. I interrupted conversations to talk about the Old Friends Dog Sanctuary. I talked about my aunt who makes the best banana pudding ever. I made myself obnoxious talking about how I used to live where I could see the Northern Lights and wouldn’t it be cool if we could see St. Elmo’s Fire, but fireflies and fireworks were nice too. I don't know if it helped anybody but me.


Somebody has re-written one of my old Watchmen kinkmeme fics to an Overwatch one. There are a few changes here and there, but a lot of the descriptions are word for word. I'm not sure how to proceed.

My first impulse was to ask why they couldn't at least give me credit, but I'm on my phone and it won't let me log on. I ended up being weird and vague, but I kinda want to see what they say. Is there a better way to handle stuff like this?

Adventures in House-Sitting

Three things I have learned on my summer job:1)Ducks are completely nasty. And 2) Not sleeping well because someone barks and/or whines every time I move, sigh, or give any sign of being there really ruins my attitude. It is Day 4. Two more weeks to go.

I can do it. I just have to start grabbing naps in the daytime. It’s hard for me because I am solar-powered, but I can’t do this many more days without cracking up. It doesn’t help that my car is breaking, the air conditioner is already out, and the estimate to fix my roof is in the thousands.

I did sneak some time in to write a Watchmen fic for 31_days.

Oh, and 3) is that if I ever get the roof, car, and AC fixed and paid for, I may want an irobot roomba. It’s adorable and the dog hair is gone.


I dreamed that I had to keep a small group of Klingons entertained until a ship could be sent for them. At a loss, I put them in front of a Game of Thrones marathon. They really got into it. Many hot wings were eaten. Many shouts about treachery.
Augh, the computer is in the shop so I've been out of the loop for awhile. First, the cat knocked over a can of pop on the keyboard and I got that cleaned up as well as I could, but the \ key was damaged because it just printed out rows of \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\s everywhere. Then there was a vomit incident. Again, I cleaned it up as well as I could, but then there was a whole cluster of keys that wouldn't work no matter what and the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\s kept coming. So, I took it in. I told the poor guy about all of it and apologized for the mess he was sure to find.

Luckily, I have my laptop from work! The finest in 1990s technology right here! I make fun, but I really am just glad to have it.

My plan was to finish two long-running fics this summer, but not only is the computer out, but I cannot find the notebook with all the story stuff in it anywhere. I have searched the house, my parents' house, the car, and even gone back to work to hunt through my desk drawers. No luck. I'm gonna blame gremlins.



Today's fic was a Strange Magic.

My usual summer baking impulses are flaring up hard. Something about a vacation where I'm near the kitchen all day makes me think I could recreate the food in the Ghibli films, or Jake's Adventure Time sandwich, or all those Harry Potter House-themed cocktails.

In other news, I'm growing pumpkins and milkweed.
Back at the vet with Froud. Her face cancer is back and now she’s gotta go in every day this week for fluids. And I’ve gotta pay for it, which makes my stomach hurt a little. Not as bad as her face hurts, probably. Also, I wrote a Pacific Rim fic for the other day.

Outstanding in the Heat

Fic of the Day is a Beetlejuice one and it's grimmer than usual. But it fits the prompt.

We went to Farmer's Day today. It was so hot that I was a little delirious by the time the parade was over. I ended up giggling with my Dad over Office Space quotes until the waitress brought our food. The theme for this year was "Farmers are Outstanding in Their Field". Some people were disdainful, but I love me a bad pun and cackled unbecomingly.

Beauty is Everywhere

Bob Ross is on Netflix. Which means my first day of summer vacation was just booked solid. I did write a Watchmen fic for 31_days. Summer is usually when I don't write so much because of everything else going on, but the last few months have been a mad house so I haven't been able to write at all. Now that I have time, I'm going to try to do a little something as often as possible.

I used to watch Bob Ross with my Grandma. Just hearing his voice takes me back.

My summer vacation will never be longer than it is right now. Woo! So to celebrate, I wrote a Mad Max fic for 31_days.
