It’s disappointing that nothing came of the hope for another chapter of Maiden Rose - otoh, my future-fic story idea remains unjossed. So yeah. Mixed feelings there.

Operation ‘obtain all the Oysterband’ continues with my (legal) acquisition of Holy Bandits. This album has A Fire is Burning, which was made into a rather good Professionals vid. It’s interesting to look at the subversions there - I’m pretty sure that Brian Clemens would hate to be reminded that a goodly number of the show’s existing female fandom is pretty much imagining the guys having sex. Oysterband probably would hate it that their song is attached to a show glorifying state sanctioned violence. It’s an odd mix, but it works for the fans.

Kernel and Unbelievable2, bless ‘em, have made a cute little vid celebrating the 500th prompt of Sentinel Thursday. It’s The Proclaimers and ‘I would walk five hundred miles’. Of course.

In other news, I reviewed my 9,000 words of Big Bang story and decided that's what's there doesn't look too bad at all. This is especially heartening because I'd just been reading some Quercus/Lemon Drop stories, and if you don't feel that you completely suck at writing after immersing yourself in a favourite writer, it has to be a good sign, right?

Yep, that was the view from Miss Mousie's high school a few hours ago.

This, of course, is being followed by a frost warning.

So I know I want to write him coming into his own and finding out that these things are things he wants and struggling with that a little. Not the gender norms and such but the actual wanting of things for himself. I was wondering, are there other things anyone wants to see in this fic? My brain is kind of collecting ideas and while I don't promise to add in everything you say, I feel like there's a serious lack of fic like this out there and I know people want things and if I can help fil a gap, I'd b pretty stoked.

I shouldn't have looked I shouldn't have looked Mind's Eye Bleeding--

I've generally skipped the incest tag while looking at Narnia fic. But I just now clicked on a drabble out of curiosity. I did not notice the tag indicating that the drabble shipped Pete with both of his sisters. (Which was pretty much the fic.) Ew, squick. OK, a writer to skip then.

Well, we made it. I flew United for the first time in…eight years, and it wasn't actually as bad as I feared; the coffee is actually quite good. That said, we were still delayed an hour in San Francisco because of maintenance issues and then because of an inability to find a United crew to staff the spare United plane they found (where from, who knows; the previous plane and crew were Continental; reconciling seniority systems is the hardest part of airline mergers), with the result that I was running through Houston to make my connection to Lima. Considering that I got on the jetway of my arriving flight twenty minutes before our scheduled departure, and the flight to Lima was not in the same terminal, I felt pretty proud of that.

I'm in a hostel for the first time in…many years (I've been lucky enough to crash with friends, or to get travel grants to cover conference hotels), and it's weird. Fine, but weird. I slept about three hours, maybe, and I'm a little paranoid about my laptop and passport, though I have a private room. Lima seems nice so far, though admittedly we are in Miraflores, which is evidently a relatively ritzy part. I haven't seen much more of the city than walking from the hostel to the hotel to get the conference shuttle, which is what I did this morning.

Equally importantly, Pablo Neruda's "Canto XII from the Heights of Machu Picchu" came up in [community profile] poetry today, and it couldn't be more appropriate, given my travel plans.

I went to see CATWS again last night and like half the theatre went OMG GASP!! when Bucky
was revealed. DID NO ONE EVEN WATCH THE TRAILERS?? The girl beside me went ‘It’s his frieeeeend!!’ and I giggled a bit. Anyway, it was probably even more fun on the second viewing. :3

In a few months, my subscription to Avast Internet Security will be up. I have been considering switching to something else for a bit now, but (after reading up on both through various forums such as the Wilder Security Forums, and articles, as well as sifting through the AV Comparative tests to narrow it down) I can’t decide between these two. So have a poll--and if you have experience with either, whether it’s good or bad, please let me know.

Or let me know if either one would have a problem co-existing with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium. Because that’s one that I really won’t be giving up anytime soon.

Magnetic Cushions Let You Easily Build a Structurally Sound Pillow Fort

The Future is Now!

I think many people I know need to own these

I need to invent a time machine and send this back to my seven-year-old self.


I totally want these, but a gentle reminder that if they’re magnetic, you should maybe keep them away from your computer and cell phone. Maybe read a book in your magnetic pillow cave!

One must have many plans, so that they can all fail, so that when one thing accidentally goes right, one is strongly motivated to grab on to it and never let it go.
