Happy Christmas, friends!

I got a fantastic Magids fic for Yuletide! And books and t-shirts and workout equipment and candy and coffee for Christmas!

Also, I made M. a Doctor Who scarf (my sister-in-law made the Tardis cross-stitch in the photo), which is finally finished! Well, it still needs a fringe, but the body of the scarf is done.

I got to see both my parents and Brad and Janet and Cute Nephew last night, but it was overwhelming because there were ~10 members of Janet's extended family there, too, and also two babies, and their house isn't really big enough for all that. "Breakfast for dinner" as a holiday meal is brilliant, except it meant our hosts were cooking for two hours while the rest of us drank and made awkward conversation. Mostly it was good though.

Today I need to do some boring household stuff, but also M. and I have big plans to watch ALL the Doctor Who Christmas specials.

Day off has resulted in 5300 more words on the NaNoWriMo novel -- so I am now caught up to within 100 words of today's goal! -- and a 5.4 mile run/walk with the puppies, among other things.

Now enjoying all-natural pecan pie, Ginger in the Rye beer -- both thanks to my wonderful, wonderful best friend, TardisAlert -- and soon to be watching Sherlock!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow but I'm feeling the thankfulness already. ♥

Today I learned that Miriam has a sword that lives in her pocket at work.

She periodically pulls it out and brandishes it, and occasionally pokes people with it.

It's a Playmobil sword that was found at the store, but she only told me that part after telling a story that included, "So then I got out my sword and poked him."

Also, please watch this video. You will not regret it. The Count, Censored.

Icon Spam!

Icons are up for grabs to anyone who likes them, always. Credit and/or comments are shiny (though mostly I can't remember where I got the photos).

First, eight rainbow icons. Happy birthday, [ profile] cranky__crocus !




Second, some questionably-Photoshopped Pierce fandom icons I promised people on Glake like two weeks ago. Better late than never, yes? (I apologize for two things: my limited success at splicing multiple photos together, and my inability to see anybody but Leelee Sobieski as Kel.)

Fal/Zahir, Kel/Jon, Kel/Roald, Kel/Lalasa, Sabine/Raoul )

It's Christmas Eve, and I've staved off another bout of Tuesday Fail (which threatened, even though it's Friday) and gotten most of what I need done, done!

HOWEVER, between work and travel, I will pretty much be away from teh internet -- excepting facebook -- until January 1 (unless my trip north is a lot less fun than I anticipate). Though I will try very very hard to find time to at least read my Yuletide story late on Christmas day or early on the 26th.

Happy holidays, my friends, and best wishes for the new year!

Oh, Facebook.

friends, "boy trouble" and chain letters )

OTOH: I am 100-ish pages into Sharon Shinn's Mystic and Rider, and loving it. And rambling. )

In other news, I had the best long walk I've had with the dogs in ages, maybe because the temperature was up around freezing! (City Mouse does not like the cold, you see.) And I got some kick ass blue boots! And finished my Christmas shopping! And now I am off to read some more.

First, [ profile] kitty_ryan  wrote me a fantastic Doctor Who fic, related to "The Girl in the Fireplace," La Belle en Vous Aimant. Reinette watches as Rose forgets to turn left. I've flailed like crazy about it on her LJ, and in a comment on the story itself, but I haven't yet recced it here. So. It's lovely; go read it.

Second, I've archived something like 15 recent stories at both Archive of Our Own and The King's Own (except for the one that wasn't Tamora Pierce fic; that one's only at A03), including various birthday fics for various people, and all my Peculiar Pairings entries. I also have one story and a couple of drabbles that have ribbons at TKO, because they placed in Piercefic and the Goldenlake Drabble Tournament!

I want TiMER fic so bad, even though I hate the premise of the film. (When implanted in a person's wrist, a TiMER counts down to the day the wearer finds true love. But Oona O'Leary faces the rare dilemma of a blank TiMER. Her soul mate - whoever and wherever he is - has yet to have a TiMER implanted. Staring down the barrel of thirty and tired of waiting for her would-be life partner to get off the dime, Oona breaks her own rules and falls for Mikey, a charming and inappropriately young supermarket clerk with a countdown of four months.)

But fortunately, it's so much more than that. Vague spoilers under the cut. )
