I just had an eye exam.

I am now officially one of those people who needs reading glasses. (As in a prescription that's different from my regular distance glasses.) This would also apply to time spent on the computer. The nice lady eye doctor said this is a normal part of the aging process, but I'm pretty sure the fact that I've spent the last 3 years pretty much glued to a lap-top for LJ purposes didn't help either.

Let's figure out how someone who can screw up birth control pills, and is at any given moment in a tizzy over keys, ATM, fast pass, gym card and glasses as it is, is going to contend with one pair for reading, computer etc and a different pair for movies, tv and just being outside.

This is not good. On the other hand, presumably being able to see the computer at work a bit more clearly MIGHT knock down the number of snafus that occur on it.

Welcome Back Pimp Post

The Drabble Challenge at ppth_support this week is "Daddy's Boy." If you've got a Mom & Dad House fic up your sleeve, or something about any other supporting or guest character from that episode...bring it on, or do a little drabble for the challenge.


Here's some wacky, cracky, and slightly different recs for you this week:

Once in a Blue Moon by hllangel
Pairing: Academia/Fandom
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 301
Summary: Normally, Academia beats Fandom senseless. But once in a blue moon, Fandom pushes Academia against a brick wall and drops to his knees.

Awesomely insane crack!


Untitled Minor Character fic written by haldane for ppth_support.

It's a fic with everybody's favorite dominatrix, Annette Raines. Also House, Chase, humor and even a bit of sweetness.


Catechism by saphron_girl.
Fandom: Becket/The Lion in Winter
Pairing: Richard/Philip, Henry/Thomas
Rating: G

Historical and literary canon-slash (canon at least on the Richard/Philip side), with oodles of angst. Beautifully done.


If You Will Not Have Me, You May let Me Go by paperclipbitch

More literary slash. Hamlet slash no less, featuring Horatio and Fortinbras with Horatio/Laertes backstory. And to make it even more ...whatever it's written back-wards, Memento style.

Freakishly brilliant.


And one from The Chelsea Drugstore Vaults... Someone's Got To Do It
Dirty Jobs fic written for mmom 2007.
Mike checks out a very dirty job. It still makes me giggle every time I read it.

Reading glasses update.

These things are awesome, and I'm definitely seeing an improvement when I look at the computer.
The scary part was the first time I went into the hall wearing them and all of a sudden I got the visual equivalent of a "Wah-wah!" sound.

I'm a little worried about which to wear when I'm watching TV AND working on the lap-top, but thinking it's the reading glasses because I'm still more focused on the computer.

And an if I needed use the glasses-porn icon.

Happy House night everybody!
