Clearly it doesn't take much to amuse me these days. Also, I think I might have a crush on the My Drunk Kitchen host.

These are samples of the pictures hung in the women's bathroom at the restaurant where I had lunch today.

Not exactly safe for work, I suppose )

Since the past three days have been absolute madness, I decided not to drive over an hour to the LARP event I'd planned to attend this weekend and run around outside in the possible rain hitting people with plumbing supplies. Part of me is sad to miss out on seeing my friends and actually getting to an event. The other part of me is so happy to not be in the car and driving places, and to have at-will access to internet and fic.

So I got a haircut (and we found my first white hair! That is sort of cool. We'll see how I feel when said white hair invites friends over). I have a trim and unexpected!highlights. Unexpected how, you may ask. Well, since there was some of the bleachy-whatever stuff leftover from my mom's highlights, we (my mom's friend D) decided to experiment a bit. And now I have highlights. Only a few, comparatively, I'm told, but still. I looked like an armadillo a bit there with the foil things in.

Now I am watching the rest of Sherlock with my parents (My mom digs it, my dad likes it, but I think he's having trouble with the fast-talking people with accents and unfamiliar slang - but he's still here watching it with us, and LOVED the wall bit at the beginning of ep 3). We are getting takeout for dinner - nom! There are scallion pancakes in my future and all is well.

I want to bake something, but don't know what.

I am hoping that H will be coming over tonight to continue our Miyazaki-moviefest. We've seen Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle. I believe Spirited Away is next.

I am currently in Paris. Life is good :)

So I finally finished one of my WiPs. I need to give it a good strong polishing, but at least the meat of it is done. Why can't I bring myself to just do it? I don't know. I figured I just needed a bit of distance following finishing that draft and starting the polish so I walked away from it for most of the day. Doing other stuff so I can look at it with fresher eyes is always a good idea anyways.

Only now I can't even bring myself to look at the file.

I also need to be packing, and dealing with a few issues that have popped up this weekend, and doing some massive cleaning to prep for guests.


On a positive note, I did go out for a lovely dinner with my parents, so that is a nice thing.

I have just finished reading A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson and I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it.

Contains some spoilers, but if you know your typical romance story themes and endings than it won't come as much of a surprise... )

So yes, now to decide what's next. Perhaps this time it will actually be Mansfield Park?

Also, question for the fannish folk interested in sharing...

If you have a story/series of ficlets that, while not while not strictly related to each other (are intended to be read completely independently of each other) are linked by a common theme, do you prefer to read them as they are written or only once the collection is complete? So, I guess I'm asking: Read in installments or in one-go?

It is possible that I am developing a crush on Finbarr Clancy from The High Kings.




In other news, I spent 6.5 hours today prepping for and talking with local high schoolers for a career day hosted by my workplace. I spent very nearly all of it on my feet, in what turned out to be extremely uncomfortable shoes. Then for the remainder of the workday I did my actual job. Still in those damn shoes. Woe.

And now I have several days off. Woo!

Also, I finally saw Sherlock Holmes. I have to say it wasn't quite what I'd expected, though if you asked me what I did expect I really don't know what to say. I liked it though, and had fun watching. I'm planning on seeing it again at some point when I'm less exhausted (I watched it last night after a long shift), I just need to decide if I'll rent it or buy it.
