Missed Monday!

I did it again. *sigh*

But there is so much going on! Where to start? Where to start?

Well, WE ARE OVER 9.5 MILLION WORDS!!! So that's pretty awesome all around!

We have a new monthly challenge, and that's a little more awesome.

There are prompts EVERY day that aren't part of the monthly challenge so check those out. We are that freaking awesome!

And even more awesome - I know, I didn't think it was possible either - Sign ups for the Swap of Joy have started!

AND I'm heading out on vacation Wednesday night! Which is awesome for me, maybe not so much for you. My big plans, you ask? I'm hanging out with Eggs, maybe some leaf peeping, knitting, and MAKING WORDS!!! It's going to be epically awesome!

What are your big plans for awesomeness?

Yay for words!

Double yay for your vacation, too!

Not much happening for me this week. Heading to the Ren Faire on Friday and that's about it. Hoping to make some words this week, too, but that may only be in the form of book reviews because I'm sorely behind. Oops. :D

And yes, we are beyond awesome!

OOOOHHHHHHHH That sounds like fun.

We can wait till next week, and then you can get to the writing of the carguments!

We haven't gone in years because it just got to be too expensive ($15/person x 4 = you can't buy anything), but we found a Groupon this year. :D

HAH! By next week, I ought to at least have half of season 1 under my belt so it's possible!

No doubt, especially when it winds up being a BOGO free deal. :D

I shall WRITE! :D

DEAL indeed!

I have found that the WotD is great for cargument writing, but I would think that LJ's QotD would work as well. Just sayin'

Yes!

Oh, I bet it is. :D Hahaha... LJ's QotD would be GREAT especially the one from the other day about nicknames.

Hah! I just need to get some more *research* in before I attempt any of this. You know, for characterization purposes and... stuff.

A quote from this morning's episode:

Steve: Are you scared?
Danny: I'm not scared! I'm reasonably concerned.

I don't know how people don't love them!

I know it. I'm only six episodes in and I'm in love. :D

Yes! A good sign. ;). Tell us when you hit the excellent slashy episodes, so we have someone to squee over them with again, lol... there's much slashy goodness ahead.

:D I will definitely do so! I can see it forming already. I mean, when you fight like a married couple from the moment you meet, it's only natural things are going to get... subjective. :D

Absolutely! I'm convinced Alex plays Steve as engaged/challenged/turned on by Danny right from the top. Danny, of course, is a harder nut to crack -- but in the first episode he goes on about 'hating' Steve, and of course the opposite of love isn't hate, right? It's indifference. Danny's *never* indifferent about Steve. ;)

Yes, I overthink those two. And Dean/Cas. I massively overthink them. And it's funny, 'cause I'm not horribly shippy with other shows, but those two pairings I'd fight a dragon for, lol....

Exactly that - and you're right, too. Neither of these two are indifferent to the other. They're actually much more invested than they should be so early on in a partnership. :D

Don't even get me started on Dean/Cas. Gah. For some reason, those two really inspire some angsty feelings. Hahaha... I'm the same way, but it's funny how certain shows just WANT you to ship the characters. Common Law was like that but, when the entire premise of the show is two male cops in couple's therapy well, that ship's going to sail itself.

I hope you have a lovely vacation and I will be leaving for my time off on Sunday and I can't wait :):)

OOOOOHHHHHH Yay for vacation! I really am looking forward to taking out Eggs for a couple of rides and walks through the leaves!

Enjoy!

My boss is leaving on a two week conference next Sat onwards with 75% of my colleagues so that is awesome (: the remaining three of us get the place to ourselves.


On the flip side, I don't think I can ever cash in my annual paid leave since I doubt he'll actually approve it. He's making someone else cancel theirs one week before they're set to go - international flights and everything - because he thinks her current work is not up to par.


Hope you have a nice break!

My plan for awesomeness...well, it's taking on a series, which I haven't attempted in five years, and this time I'm determined to finish it. I'm worried that I'm making Zelena slightly too sympathetic though. (For anyone who doesn't know me, the idea is a continuation of Once Upon a Time in Wonderland where Jafar's lamp ends up in Gold's store and Zelena accidentally lets him out). It so nearly got dismissed as just another of my crazy ideas but now I'm determined to make this series work after my friend showed me the way it could go (I'm now trying to get at least one chapter up before this same friend gets back from holiday).

And it's songfic (Defying Gravity) so sort of fits with the month's theme.
