I feel like my brain is frozen!

Basically, I've written at least one fan fic every day this month between consci_fan_mo, yuletide, and my holiday drabbles. Even got a new smidge written on the NOVEL while I was at the Mint last week.

Now I'm perusing the prompt list looking for ideas for Yuletide Madness and nothing is sparking. I'm going to polish up something I did yesterday, write the last drabble and get my EPIC, balls-out Jack/Gwen fic, which includes large dollops of Jack/Master, Lucy/Gwen, and John Hart to the rescue, all ready for Christmas Day posting. It may be jossed by the time many of you read it, but I feel the need to post it, as a great, big I LOVE YOU to all the real!Jack believers who hung together through all the craziness of the Pre/During/Post CoE period. P.S.-JACK IS A BASTARD!!!

Low blood sugar may be kicking in as well. I have that weird detached feeling that I associate with need to get some carbs in my system, even though I drank a protein shake around 4 in the morning.

I have to go out and make sure there's enough food in the house to get us through tomorrow, but I also need to make sure I'm back here when my cousin Effie comes to pick me up so that I can go see the relatives in Marin.

I had planned to get a long-ish walk in, but my legs are not in great shape, so a long soak may be more in order.

It's been an amazing fanfic year, but I'm disappointed that I failed to kick the habit enough to finish the book. I'm working on Chapter7, but there's a long way to go. There's a definite fear that it's getting away from me, but I am going to give it a try again in 2010.
Hot well written

Tidbits, Rambling, Babble

OK, I'm as psyched about slashy Sherlock Holmes as anybody, but I've got this strange feeling that Downey, Ritchie et al, are over-playing their hand about it. Obviously, there won't be any "canon-slash," so wouldn't it have been better to have all the snarky subtext in there for the viewers to find and squeeeeeeeee about, rather than having it out there in interviews giving the right-wingers another chance to rail about the "Gay Agenda" and promising the slashers more than they can actually deliver?

I get the impression that there are folks who will be disappointed with less than a full-on snog, which they're not going to get.


Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbin split up after 23 years

THAT TOTALLY SUCKS!!! I loved them so much as a couple, especially for being out there and fighting the good fights together.


I had a roasted yam sandwich from Bi-rite. Feeling much better, but still not sure I have any more yuletide fics in me.

I watched the Buzzcocks episode with David Tennant, Catherine Tate and Bernard Cribbins, which was all kind of awesome, (BARROWMAN!!!) but I was really taken with Noel Fielding and that sort of quiet, shy, soft, but totally wicked, snarky thing he had going on. I've seen pictures of him in fandomsecrets and I have several f-listers who are into The Mighty Boosh, but I don't think I'd ever really seen him before. I spent a lot of last night watching as many Buzzcocks clips with him as I could find. I still don't know if I'd hit it, but I'd totally like to hang out with it. Is The Mighty Boosh worth my looking into? Help me out here, guys.


RIP Arnold Stang
It happened the same day at Brittany Murphy and I missed it.


I can't wait to see Dr. Who!


I'm looking at the cast list for Robin Hood in Cardiff this year and NOT seeing Paul Zerdin, the ventriloquist who played Will Scarlett in Birmingham last year and was one of the highlights of the show. Hey Cardiff-viewers...did they get a different ventriloquist for the part or does your production not have a puppet at all? Just curious.
