Random amusing moments

or: why I love my readers.

So i've gotten some great comments on my fics over the years, though being called a "heart murdering monster" is probably one of my favorites and makes me cackle every time I think about it. And I can honestly say there's nothing more flattering or awe-inspiring than being told I've inspired someone else to start/continue writing.  That being said, in all my fics now I include a link to my plotbunny page where I have ALL of my plotbunnies listed for every fandom that they've shown up for, that way they can leave feedback or even leave ideas of their own that they'd like to see me tackle (and I have a place to refer back to because I forget about them otherwise).  One very enthusiastic reader of mine asked me the other day if I had Patreon because they would pay me to write some of these ideas, which as lovely as that sounds, we've seen how well my writing muses have been going this year *handwaves to previous update posts here* lol.  But what just had me smothering giggles, as the hubby is sleeping soundly next to me, someone just said they "would summon cthulhu for this" in regards to one of my ideas and that is so freaking awesome and hilarious I had to share with someone.

What are some of the best compliments/insults/comments you guys have gotten on your work that either make you feel all warm and fuzzy or bust out laughing?

It's a Tuesday Monday.

I completely flaked on asking someone to take over the Monday post on Friday and then remembered last night at 8 ish so....


HAPPY WEEKDAY TO YOU!

Again it's going to be a slapdash post, go forth and find some prompts you want to fill from last week/month/year/years. We are chock full of them!

Flash Challenge is "Puppy-proof/baby-proof" Do with it as you will.

I'mma whine for a minute. I took Friday off last week and yesterday was a holiday for me at work. In 4 days I was over 47 hours trying to get ready for a day off, and I suspect that this 4 day week will still be well over that. *sigh* I'd tell you that it's almost not worth taking the day off, but I do feel rested so...

ALSO - the puppy I spoke about was confirmed last week and I should be getting custody mid to late March, I have chosen to name him ham, which will go along very well with Eggs. And I began cleaning to puppy-proof the house. 1) I have too much stuff, and 2) I have way too much chewable stuff. I'm still very excited even with the 11 hour days this week.

What are your plans for the week?
