Weekend Reportage

WHEW!!!

Just finished my LJ catch-up since Friday afternoon. Damn you guys were chatty this weekend. I skimmed most of the personal stuff and pretty much skipped ALL the fanfic except for a few that called out to me, which are printed for the take home pile.

I didn’t do much commenting. Doesn’t mean I don’t love ya, just means I’m actually supposed to be working and can’t do it while LJ is calling my name.

And now some personal update stuff, which in the world of Quid Pro Quo, Clarice, probably won’t glean (and may not deserve) many comments.

I’ll put it behind cuts, just out of respect for your busy f-lists.

Saturday—

Manicure, pedicure and some eye-brow waxing in anticipation of Hair Day, but still NO goddess nails. Lots of chipping. Boo-hiss. I feel like I’m totally cheating on Kathy and I really need to get a new set of silk wraps, but just haven’t had time with all this crap going on.

Usually for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, hubby and I go up early on Saturday and stake out our territory so we can see a bunch of acts, which one of us holding the fort at any time while the other one wanders. This time we were sort of beat from the night before so we only went up to see Bela Fleck and The Flecktones. Against all odds, we still managed to get close to the stage so that hubby could see them. I love Bela and I like the Flecktones, but not so much as a live band. And just as the set was ending, the fog came up and it was suddenly FREEZING. We didn’t stick around for Los Lobos. Just left our blanket behind (it’s pretty grungy) and walked and walked and walked back out of the park to the Haight in search of dinner. We had burgers at All You Knead, which is an awesome breakfast place, but not so good for dinner. More miracles occurred as I managed to get us a cab. (You saw all the stuff that was going on this weekend. There’s barely enough cabs in the city on a nothing happening day. On a weekend like this one? It’s a nightmare.)

Watched Torchwood, Dr. Who, CSI, Numb3rs.

I was basically writing ALL WEEKEND, no matter what else I appeared to be doing at any time.

I finished a first draft of the costume fic and now it’s off for hemming, cuffing, button sewing, and a word that means adjustments to clothing that my brain will not provide right now.

ETA-ALTERATIONS! Thank you kimberweeme.

The House/Jack crossover smut hit a road-block. I’m hoping to go home and dynamite that thing as soon as I can get out of here.
