Here is my choice of table for this year's Summer Mini Challenge by [personal profile] luxken27!

Table 2
lemon yellow
Progress: 5/5

Anyone who is interested in participating (any fandom [or even original work!], any kind of fic) is welcome.  I'm including the link to the livejournal post with the rules and the prompt tables.  I had a complete blast with this last year (it got me back writing in the Full Metal Panic fandom, woot!) and can't recommend it enough!  Here is the official post.

Yay! Writing!

If you count Friday evening, this has been a terrific weekend.

I got another call from the university that I'm about to adjunct at where they asked if I would also like to teach a class or two in the winter semester.  Heck yes I do!  I go in on Monday to do paperwork so that I can get paid.  Huzzah!  Money for doing something I'm trained for!

Then, yesterday I spent the majority of the day just geeking out over Full Metal Panic!  I read fanfic, trolled DA for fan art, and watched AMVs.  I also made some Kurz/Melissa icons to help inspire me for my next story.

I should really start writing that thing.  Maybe that's what I'll do today!


Puppy post

I've been thinking about writing an angsty post, but the kitty post by [ profile] psyco_chick32 has made me want to relate my most recent puppy story.

As most of you know, we have two dogs.  A larger, older (just turned 10!) black Lab and a two-year-old mutt of a puppy who is quite small (10 pounds).  Our little guy is just full of romping, playing, and cuteness while the big guy is regal and dignified.

Well, in our house, the dogs have couch privileges.  We have two couches, a large sofa and a smaller love seat.  The big dog has a favorite spot on the big sofa, on the right corner cushion.  The little guy sits on laps, pillows, the back rests, anywhere he wants that suits his desires at the time.

At night, though, the big guy usually sleeps in his spot on the sofa and the little guy snuggles with us on the bed.

Well, last night, I got up at 4:30 to use the bathroom and notice that the puppy didn't come to bed with us.  I went looking for him.  I found him.  He had taken the big guy's spot on the couch.  He was stubbornly refusing to budge and the big guy was glaring at him, squeezed onto the love seat.  The puppy, who actually prefers nighttime snuggles on the bed, was only on the couch to spite the larger dog!  He only wanted it because the other dog wanted it.

Bad dog!

So I scooped up the little guy and brought him to the bedroom.  When I woke up, the big guy was back in his place on the couch.

I have the cutest dogs ever.

First of all, good news: [ profile] scribefigaro has found us an apartment.  We move in on Saturday!

I'm still at a relative's house (while Scribe is already at his jobsite), so my internet access is going to continue to be really limited.  Plus, I have a ton of stuff to do to get ready for the move.

I've been able to go back through my f-list, and as much as I want to comment to everything I see, I just don't have the time (or privacy) right now.  I just wanted to leave a quick note and say that I'm thinking of all of you, congratulating you for the good things, sending quiet support for the tough stuff, and being really intrigued at all of the weird/awesome/interesting things that you're posting.

Also, a special thanks to [ profile] sweetly_beth for my jammin' headphones!  They were friggin' awesome!

Take care and I'll hopefully be more responsive in the coming week (and definitely next week)!

First, the negative stuff.

Job angst )

But moving on to happier subjects.  [ profile] aamalie made me a pretty!

Amazing art )

And now, to the shipping meme where I feel I must cheat.

Day 20 - The "can't stand the sexual tension any more" pairing? )

Actually, I think the title of this post should be "Ode to Public Transportation, Part 2" as I'm sure I've proclaimed my love for it here before.

Cut for length. )

TLDR: I had a good trip.

Today is a day you remembered why you worked so hard.  Even if it all comes to nothing, you had today.

I had Pad Thai for dinner tonight.

My belly is singing with happiness.
