Three days off!

Plan for today is getting some laundry done, doing about an hour long run, which I'm planning to time so I finish up with core-work and stretching at the gym, mani-pedi with foot massage, and then go to the Mint and write all afternoon.

No new House this week. We do get one next week and I'm thinking it's another bait-and-switch, now-you-see-it, now-you-don't, yeah we know they're fucking, but we'll never admit it, kind of story.

Wow! You never know what's going to cause a brou-ha-ha on fanficrants. This one took off in directions I never suspected. It's been an interesting, mostly civil discussion, and it's possible I do have a high-horse about addiction/recovery issues, and possible the initial rant could have been phrased better regarding the generalities.

I stand by the specific rant for the character in question and the general point regarding the fact that if a character has a canon addiction issue, which is known to the other characters and has been acknowledged by the character themself, then drinking is an issue on the table and at least deserves a mention when the behavior is witnessed by other characters.

We managed to ride the bikes to Noe Valley yesterday with no major incidents. The concert was very low-key. Six people on stage and about 20 in the audience tops. Afterwards we went to Il Cantuccio for din-din and came to home to watch more #1 Ladies Detective Agency, where we had another Who spotting: Colin Salmon, who played Dr. Moon in Silence In The Library, was Precious' ex-husband.

I think this fits pretty well, since I am a canon-junkie, even if "canon" needs to be subverted.


Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The True Fan

OOC is blasphemy, canon is everything.

Once you fall in love with a movie, book or TV series, you are loyal like an old dog. You take fanfiction quite serious and use it as a substitute after the canon ran out.


You are probably a walking dictionary of your favourite fandom and you are picky about what you write and read. The closer to the "real thing" fanfiction is, the more you like it.


You rather explore a character in all depth, see new sides and learn more about them than creating new characters or mix up the situations they are in.

OH GREAT!!!

I just got a call from the Regional Manager. Another agent in the region had some dental emergency so our floater might have go cover for him tomorrow, which means they might want me to give up my vacation and go in.

And because I'm a wuss, and incredibly aware of how many bullets I dodged just in the last week, I said I'd do it.

Of course, if I wasn't so stressed that I needed a vacation, I problems wouldn't have had so many screwups to fix.
