Magnificent Monday!

Well hello there! And welcome to the landslide of newbies that arrived over the weekend! It's good to have you all here!

It's Monday, and I'm actually able to relay how awesome you all are! I feel oddly on the ball. I don't know how this happened. It must be all of your awesomeness spilling over to me!


So I have the snowfall of immense proportions heading my way, while my football team heads west. It's an exciting week, and most likely I'll be stuck at home tomorrow with the 2+ feet of snow hitting. Which I have to say, I'm kind of excited about, no matter how much it's going to suck the life out of the rest of the week, because - Almost Human arrived today, and provided I don't lose power, I'll be curled up watching Karl and be inspired to work on my rare pair fic.

How are all of your rare pairs doing? Did you all make me Kennex/Maldonado graphics? You all rock!

And back to seriousness, I'm going to remind you to update your numbers. Written words, and Graphic words. We are fast approaching the end of the month! I can't wait to see what we did in January, because WE ARE SO VERY AWESOME!!!

So what awesome things did you do last week? I bathed the dog, he doesn't think it was that awesome. And what awesome things do you have planned for this week. Said dog has a play date on Saturday, so that'll make him happy.

I need to update my written words count soon. but I'll wait until I've written the rest of the week and update Saturday night.

Excellent plan!

Damnit. Now I'm thinking about it. And I want more of it.

Do my evil plans work or what?!?

Welcome to the newbies first of all!

OMG - YAY FOR ALMOST HUMAN! Hahaha - I loved Maldonado. I can totally see the sparks flying (among other things, like curse words) between the two of them though.

I don't know that I did anything awesome last week... I did manage to finish chapter 3 of my original fic WIP though, so that's something.
Jan. 26th, 2015 08:53 pm (UTC)
THAT is something AWESOME!!!

I so very love Lili Taylor! LOVE HER TO BITS!!
Jan. 26th, 2015 08:56 pm (UTC)
Thanks - although I feel like it's never going to get finished. :)

I'm going to have to look into some of her stuff, I'd never seen her before AH. Not to mention, I still need to watch ST: Into Darkness. :)
Jan. 26th, 2015 08:59 pm (UTC)
Loved her since Mystic Pizza and Say Anything!

Newbies! Welcome! How many newbies constitutes a landslide? lol...

I'm going to make sure I hit what is a pretty darn high monthly total for me. Hopefully that'll include catching up on *almost* everything on my 'fics owed' list.

I went to the public library reading room last weekend to do some research on novel writing, and to hand write (eeek) initial thoughts on an original story. Planning to make that a habit- it's somewhere else to be that is quiet and conducive to new ways of thinking about what I am doing. I hope. It seemed to work very well last weekend, am looking forward to it. :)

FOUR! Four constitutes a landslide. 3 would be a truck load.

That sounds like a wonderfully thing to do! I LOVE IT!

I always meant to try making donuts but never quite got around to it. Enjoy! (and hope the dental appointment goes smoothly!)
Jan. 28th, 2015 08:32 pm (UTC)
I love Almost Human! I was so upset as it promised to have such season or longer arcs. But yes, Pizza and a marathon sound wonderful!

And absolutely, Dentist then donuts!!

Ugh at the s***. Please don't send it my way (I'm in the UK) - there is one tabloid called the Daily Express which is claiming we're going to get a very big snowstorm but the Daily Express has predicted that kind of thing lots of times and got it wrong.

Right now I'm trying to finish a How To Get Away with Murder fic but finding that while I have things to say about Connor, Wes, Michaela and more about Asher than anyone's ever going to give a damn about, I'm stuck on Laurel.

If I were in charge of where the snow goes.....

I honestly don't think that they can tell you what you're going to get for weather until it's over.

I have faith that you will get through Laurel, maybe read some other fanfic about her and that will get you some perspective. *fingers crossed*
Jan. 26th, 2015 09:39 pm (UTC)
Hmm, I am more of a Kennex/Dorian fan myself, sorry.

I need to clean up my rare pair fic and post it... and post my counts. XD I'll get to it though, I promise!
Jan. 28th, 2015 09:02 pm (UTC)
Oh, they are very pretty indeed! I just love Lili Taylor, was so excited when I found out she was going to be in the show.

While I only did a bit of plinking at pperpetual WIPs last week, there was some awesome in being on vacation in Orlando. The first day we went to the Space Center and saw much awesome including the new Atlantis shuttle exibit and the ?spaceX? upcoming launch from afar. The second day we saw the light of said launch from Epcot while we were awaiting the fireworks. The rest of the vacation I lazed around the hotel and played with my son and neices when they weren't park hopping. Which was possibly the most awesome part.

Then of course, I came home just in time to batten down for the same 2 feet you're awaiting. *grin* We should think of a snowed in comment fic meme to do tommorow...

hehehehe awesome idea!
Jan. 28th, 2015 09:04 pm (UTC)
Dammit! So little internet at home. But I reserve the right to use that idea later!

You had an awesome week last week, and how about that 2 feet turning to 3 feet!? *headdesk*

How'd you fare with the snow? Fingers crossed for you!

That's always my fear, losing power, and then the drive in. Glad you made it.

You write HTGAWM? Ever attempted Laurel? I'm totally struggling with her.

I know everyone north of me is sick of snow, but I'm sick and tired of rain. Yesterday was the first day without rain or being overcast in over a week.

As to being awesome.... well.... not so much this month. Rainy cold weather depresses me and Five, so nothing really gotten written. :(

The girls all went to the vet and got their claws trimmed, which means I'm no longer looking like a pin cushion. Bonita's weight has stayed the same which is good since she was a very chunky chihuahua at one point and time. Daisy is starting to show her age around her muzzle and pouts at me when I tease her about it. Faith, the newest addition, is a very active puppy that weighs a surprising 30 pounds and wears Daisy out on a daily basis, which is a good thing.

Still working on cleaning the house and getting ready to move in the spring.... le sigh

Words will happen in February.... they will....

P.S. Hello to the newbies. May you have many words this year.

The sun will come out, tomorrow. Tomorrow, there'll be sun! Wait... *hugs* overcast is icky by day 3 in a row.

Yay for the puppies, boo for moving!

More hugs

Hello and welcome to the newbies. This place is wonderful, you're going to love it here.

My week was not so much with the awesome since I've had the flu for a few days. Hard to be awesome when just getting dressed makes you wobbly. But I'm still able to sit in front of the computer for a few hours at a time, usually, which means words words lots of words. THAT's awesome.
Jan. 28th, 2015 09:37 pm (UTC)
Hugs and nyquil. I hope you feel better soon. But for the interim, yay words!

Hello newbies! Looks like a few of them are signing up for things already which is SUPERB!

And me? Hmm, so far not much this week (hey, it's Thursday already and I'm just getting here now, what does that say?). I'm avoiding the heat (yup, no snow here, but you know that!) by working... I wish that's why I was in the orifice, but no, I have to work. Still, it does avoid the humidity of Auckland in summer, so it's worth something (much as I love the heat, the humidity is tiring). We had RAIN yesterday! OMG! It came down so hard here - it was bashing against the window next to my desk, and we were thinking that's so good for the garden at home... got home and it had barely rained there at all.

Anyway, I did write that rare pair (which now I check AO3 seems to be all the rage now... dammit! Anyway, I stick by my assertion that it was rare when I thought about it! I think it falls into the 'Two White Guys' trope, actually, even if the scene that had me going was suggestive!)

And I have tomorrow off, so I'll be shopping for shoes and stationery for school for LF, then dumping taking him to a friend's for the afternoon, while I have coffee with a friend of my own (YES! I HAVE ONE FRIEND IN RL!!!!), and then I'm hoping to convince Hubby to go to a movie after he finishes work. We'll see...

The weekend is for movies with the girls (N1D, N2D, me and my sis at her place) and then WRITING, please! I so need to get Bingo and weekend challenges sorted and I NEED WORDS, not to mention updating the comm with my (admittedly very slack) numbers for January.

AND I need to catch up on H50 S5 - I'm only at about 5.06... *sigh*, although on a positive note, with all the holiday programming we get over summer (ie nothig much to watch), I have caught up on a bunch of old stuff! Still more to go, and a new season of shows starting in a few weeks... but I feel like I'm getting there!

And... ramble over!
