There aren't many things I find more beautiful than a summer thunderstorm, when the heat is breaking and the wind is high and the rain is just pelting down.

I can see the orange sunset through the clouds. That's so weird.

wordles!

Man, I'd forgotten how much fun Wordles are.

This is the wordle for my Rose!fic, Life in Technicolor: cut for image )

So pretty!

And bonus wordle for the as-yet-untitled, certainly unfinished, extraordinarily plotty sequel, which is nominally Rose/Doctor (with Martha and added Torchwood crossover) but I'm over 5000 words into the thing and the Doctor has yet to make an appearance, the sneaky bastard: cut for image, again )

[livejournal.com profile] skywaterblue has an awesome picspam about the utter geek that is Barack Obama here. Snerk.

I actually feel like I got enough sleep last night, for the first time in a while. I really, really don't want to have to go into work tomorrow, unsurprisingly. Weekends need to last longer than two days. Especially given how most of MY weekends only actually last one day.

Slightly ambitious plan of the day: finish writing my Two Lines fic. If only because I'm not gonna have much time to work on it this week, and I need to make sure I leave enough time to get it to beta and back before the deadline. (Not that Two Lines deadlines are all that rigid, seriously, I almost ALWAYS post these things a month or so late. But not this time!) Weirdly, what I thought would be a fairly short post-Doomsday fic is already 19 pages long. Probably I have about five more pages to write. It's not epic by any stretch of the imagination, but still. I blame Jack Harkness, who just had to stick his pretty face in, despite the whole parallel universe business. Jeez.

Perchance I shall get a haircut today as well. It's about that time. And I told my housemate I'd bake her a carrot cake, as per her birthday request, though I'm heartily wishing she'd requested just about any other sort of baked good, because I do NOT feel like investing time in grating carrots all afternoon. I like baking because it DOESN'T feel like proper cooking to me. Once you make me grate carrots, that's proper cooking, and I disapprove. Plus now I have to buy a grater. Bah.

Mesmerizing video of the day: grizzly cubs and wolf just want to play. Mama Bear does not approve.

I don't know what search term to use to look this up for myself. It's for a fic. You know how when doctors need to look at X-rays and suchlike, they stick them up on a sort of white wall that's really one big light, to see the scan properly? What on earth is that called? A light wall? They do this in House all the time, I've seen it on the X-Files before, I'm sure every medical drama known to man has featured it. It must have a real name.

I have just baked snickerdoodles. The last batch is currently in the oven.

As anyone who has encountered my baking prowess can attest, my apartment is a pretty amazing place to be right now.

This is just to say, Mrs. Fields Cookie Cups are happiness in dessert form. It's a cupcake, except with cookie instead of cake. And it is made of win.

This is not a recent discovery of mine, but every time I give in to temptation and buy one, it makes my world a happier place. Despite a really awkward night yesterday and not enough sleep and being at work and having a show to stage manage tonight. Pure. Happiness.

Today is the birthday of one of my actors, so I got up early to make brownies.

These are some TASTY brownies I have here. Also, rather appallingly gooey, which made transferring them from the pan to the tupperware containers rather interesting. They're not undercooked, so I'm not sure what's up with that. Maybe I should have let them cool longer before trying to cut them up? Anyway, they're mighty tasty. They just kinda fall apart easily. Which, you know, fills your mouth with soft melty chocolatey goodness, so I can't really complain.

My actors had better appreciate my devotion, is all I'm saying.

Every now and then, my mother finds the cool stuff before I do.

fall

kaydeefalls: prudence laughing in the sunshine: "won't you come out to play" (dear prudence)
I love fall. And today is the absolute perfect fall day in Chicago -- sun shining, bluest sky you've ever seen, air crisp, trees all gold and red and brown. Plus, many small children are trick-or-treating down Broadway, which is beyond adorable. Apparently princess is still the hot ticket for girls and assorted superheroes for boys, but there were some really inventive costumes on display as well. Oh, to be small and able to consume massive amounts of free candy again.

LOVE.

How much of a dork am I that my idea of a great Friday night is reading X-Files fanfic and dancing around like a lunatic to the Across the Universe soundtrack?

Whatever, it's totally fantastic.

I need to learn how to focus on the positive aspects of my life rather than the negative. Because really, my life isn't exactly awful. Boring, yes, but boring is very doable. So I shall post about happy things whenever possible.

Happy things so far today: interview went well, I'm pretty sure I am now a member of this temp agency, although dunno how long it'll take to process the paperwork and find a placement for me. But there is gainful employment in my future, and maybe I'll be able to break completely free financially from my parents this year. Also, I totally aced the Word and Excel tests I had to take. Bow down to my l33t computer skillz.

And yesterday I managed to write 550 words of the YA fantasy, which pushes me that much farther through the slow zone. Now I need to get my protagonist into fun kinds of trouble. That's today's project.

stuff!

Today was heralded by the arrival of some very important and long-awaiting things: bookcases (small, alas, but a good start), a big squishy comfy chair of awesome, and my Battlestar Galactica DVDs.

It is a good day.

Now that all the furniture is sorted, I can actually figure out where to put up my posters and such, and then there shall be apartment!photospam.

I have conquered the microwave at last, through the cunning strategy of pushing buttons at random until it did what I wanted. It's still rather counterintuitive, especially for someone raised on microwaves that actually worked sensibly, but I have defeated it, and it now must do my bidding. Another day, another important life skill mastered.

This one looks interesting...

Ask me to take pictures of any aspect of my life that you're interested in or curious about. It can be anything from my favorite shirt to my cell phone. Leave your requests as a comment to this entry, and I'll snap the pictures and post them as soon as I can.

Just about anything is fair game here. I recently recharged the batteries in my digital camera (for the first time in, like, six months), and I'd like to use it again. *winning smile*

Looks like the Dems will take the House, at least. Is good.

And now for something completely different: can someone rec me the best Flogging Molly album? I've heard a couple of their songs and quite like them, and am pondering buying one of their albums on iTunes, so!

Well, I voted today. Did you?

Granted, one more Democratic vote in my extremely Democratic county probably isn't much to brag about. Still. One more drop added to the flood, I guess. Can't hurt.

In geeky theater news, OMG Anne Bogart and Mary Zimmerman are speaking in my university's theater this afternoon. *fans self*

How many have your name?



Neither my first name nor my last name are all that unusual, so this is rather nifty. Only seven of us?

In other news, I am CRAP at answering comments. Oy. I love you all, you know that, right?

So apparently, I shouldn't reread Good Omens whilst waiting for Sims2 to load, because it gives me Notions.

Notions involving me CLEARLY needing sims versions of the Them.

And, y'know, what with the Them still being kids an' all, the game requires me to provide parents.

And CLEARLY the only suitable game!parents for the Them are Aziraphale and Crowley.

And then I got somewhat trigger-happy with the snapshot function.

it's all part of that ineffable plan, somehow )

Argh, it's 6am and I'm still too wired from the Oscars to sleep. So I'm amusing myself by browsing through the IMDB Brokeback Mountain discussion threads and reporting all the "HA HA GOD HATES FAGS" posts to the administrators. There are quite a few. It's depressing.

This is one of the funniest damn things I've seen in a long time. It's a mock preview for "Brokeback to the Future". WATCH EET.
