Watched Major Crimes, of course, but I really don't have anything new to say. SYKES. RAYDOR. AMY. SHARON. ♥

And - I blame my mother for this - I watched the pilot episode of Revolution. Spoilers everywhere. ) But I have to say that my hopes aren't super high, considering that IMDb has Eric Kripke credited not only as creator and producer but also as writer. D:

And now it might be time for me to go back to sleep. Why do I always get sick right when I'm starting to actually be productive for once?

OUaT! Besides YAY SHOW I MISSED YOU, I actually have only a few thoughts. Spoilery, of course. )

Ugh, so many maps still left to do. If I ever get around to some kind of appendix post for ItO, my appendices, they will block out the sun.

Then we will cite in the shade.

Also, I would like to stop being sick riiiiiight now. Now. Now? **sigh**

Uuuuuuugh.

GOOD: I came randomly unblocked, and the exceptionally belated chapter of LttE is now over twelve thousand words long! I am caught up on OUaT and Burn Notice! I accidentally wrote a whole bunch of something that will never see the light of day but is still really satisfying!

BAD: I am sick. Said sickness has caused me to miss a professional conference I was supposed to attend with my boss, who is presumably now aware that I am a FAILBOAT, and if I do not get better by Wednesday, I pretty much have to go in anyway, because it is getting far too close to crunch time on a major event for the year and I am one of the people with some serious heavy lifting to do. This weekend has been pretty awful and this week is only going to be awfuler, most likely.

In conclusion: uuuuuuugh. I am going back to sleep.

4,894 / 50,000 words. 9.8% done!

So I got sick! Which actually was good timing, in a certain sense, because in between naps that added up to like eighteen hours of yesterday, I actually got pretty far on my NaNo. Sometimes being sick is weirdly facilitating to my writing - somehow it can temporarily lower the barrier between the not-words floating around in my head and the actual words I need to be putting down on the page. \o? Obviously I'm not quite done for today, but I think I can manage another paragraph or two this evening, if I don't just conk out on the couch the second I get home. (It's original fiction; I promised [personal profile] daemonelix a looooong time ago that I would reserve NaNo for origfic, because I write fanfic the whole rest of the year. :D)

But! There have been TV shows since last I posted. Once Upon a Time. Spoilers, of course. )

I am also watching Prime Suspect, but I have less to say about that except that I like Maria Bello, and also it makes me want to check out the original. I like watching cranky people be cranky and then also do their jobs, and since I am hitting my oversaturation point on most other police shows, it's nice to have one where I haven't had this ep on in the background while reading/eating dinner/writing fic twenty times already.

And Burn Notice is back tonight yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. ♥♥♥♥♥ Once I hit a certain level of affection for something, I am incapable of ever being objective about it again. Ever.

Long week has been so very very long. :P Possibly exacerbated by how I'm still not really at a hundred percent. Stupid lingering sore throat. Also, if I start griping about work this is going to turn into a giant wall of hate, so I will say that I came back from Plague Week to a very full inbox and leave it at that.

On the upside, I should now be successfully signed up for ALL THE THINGS ([community profile] thelittlebang and [community profile] ladiesbigbang, and, of course, [community profile] genretwisting is still in there), and - well. In terms of pure wordcount, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be fine; it'll be finishing the actual story plots that will be the hurdle. D:

I am getting stupidly fond of Trudy and Grace, though. Honestly, they're practically McShep, except for the part where a) they're women and b) canon is not about them and c) they both die. Which, gosh, I wonder how much a) has to do with b) and c)? (Answer: I am trying to avoid giant walls of hate today, so no comment. Except that that would make a kickass fusion AU. Teyla + Trudy = BFFS FOREVER OMG.)

But! For the next few days, I will be concentrating desperately on LttE, in the hope that I can actually get this chapter done. /o\ ugh i am so fail.

I am finally inching back up toward healthy after a totally horrible week of coughing and sniffles and incredible tiredness - so, um, next chapter is still in the works, and definitely not going to be done today. /o\

I went to work for part of the day on Tuesday, which was a truly horrible decision. To summarize: my car had some kind of engine issue, which in retrospect was a warning; I spent about three hours sitting at my desk barely functioning; I left early, only to find that my mother's car, which I'd borrowed, had gotten a flat tire. I called my parents (and may have cried a little), and they came to rescue me, but in the process, my mother hit my toe with the spare and now it's all purple, and I literally burned my hands picking up the (black, metal) tools (from sunny pavement) after. WORST DAY EVER. I left work at 11:30 and we made it home by 2:00; I spent the rest of Tuesday lying very still and not touching anything.

But! I have finally gotten coordinated enough to actually do something with some of the photos I took in New York. Be warned: I am a total amateur, and I got a little ~artsy, so these are mostly random things I thought were pretty. And the lions at the Library, because I had to. Also, one of these statues is unclothed. )

Despite the weather, it really was lovely, and even with the illness and everything, I'm glad I went.

And now it's time to sleep some more, in the hopes that tomorrow I will actually be productive. \o/

Mmrgh.

Aaaaaand I have been struck down by whatever [personal profile] idriya has. **shakes fist** So change that from maybe-late chapter to definitely-late - between the sore throat and the fever and the vomiting, I haven't written a thing the past couple days. /o\ Fail!

Home sick today - I'd be annoyed, but I'm too tired, and I suppose it's for the best. I mean, if I'd gotten sick last week, it would have been kind of a disaster, so. It's not so bad this week. ^^

Obviously, it's messed with my writing pace, being asleep until about three hours ago; but I still have a few days, so hopefully that'll still work out okay. The first [community profile] genretwisting fic is literally a scene away from being done, and then one last editing runthrough, and it should be all set. \o/

Now it's time to sleep more. :D

My mother's had a cold for a few days now, and sometime before this past Saturday, she handed it off to me; as has become its habit since college, my immune system chose to magnify it into some kind of quasi-flu mutant. My mother just had a cough and a stuffy nose, and was tired for a while. I've had a cough, a stuffy nose, a sore throat, a brief fever, and have thrown up three times. \o?

So I've been useless for three days - stayed home from work, passed out on the couch, the whole shebang. I've been watching a lot of TCM; it's great for sick days because there aren't commercials during the movies (tuning in and out over and over again takes more concentration than I usually have when I'm sick). Of course, it also gives me brief fannish urges every time I like one of the movies. At least if I ever get up the nerve to participate in Yuletide, I'll have fandoms to nominate?

Anyway, since it's Tuesday, I have vague, Nyquil-blurred memories of my Monday-night shows.

The Event. )

Also, Hawaii 5-0. )

And now I think I need to go to sleep again - apparently the fourteen hours I've already gotten just aren't gonna cut it.
