Fandom Stocking!

I signed up for fandom stocking this year with my DW account (the_lost_city). If you haven't heard of it, it's a place where people can stuff someone's stocking with fic/drabbles, fanart, links, cute pictures, or just holiday/December greetings. Sort of a like a fic exchange. You don't have to know them, and can go searching for other stockings in your fandom or with your interests and leave little things.

If you feel like stopping by my stocking, you can find it here: here. You don't have to have a DW account to comment, and all comments, on all stockings, are screened until around January 6, 2014.

So when you take cough medicine at 3am, you should probably quadruple-check the dosage so you don't accidentally take 3 times the dosage (also 150% of what you're supposed to take in a 24 hour period) and wake up 7 hours later high as a kite. Sucks more because the meds aren't working and I can't take more :( and I'm *still* high.

pico .todo

I miss telnet and my to-do list(s). Now I need pico .toread and pico .tosee as well.

I just watched Bride of Frankenstein, which was quite good :) I've also been watching lots of other movies, mostly starring Chris Evans. Aside from that, I spend entirely too much time on tumblr and I need to get back to writing. ASAP. First, I need to re-activate my writing muse. My reading muse has been in absolute overdrive, particularly where Avengers fic is concerned (Steve/Tony is my new OTP), though I only know the movieverse, so it's a little confusing.

But anyway. Writing vibes. I needs them.

Two posts in one day!

So I read both Divergent and Insurgent (by Veronica Roth) today, and I really, really want the third book to be available. Sadly, it's not. Because Insurgent only came out this year.

For those not familiar with this series, it's another utopian/dystopian society. It's futuristic, like the Hunger Games; divided into sections of society, also like HG; but there are no kiddie death matches. It's also somewhat unclear if it's also post-apocalyptic.

Anyway, I'm going to whine about the not-as-good-as-it-should've-been editing job. It's only noticeable to me in Insurgent, but there are some bits where it clearly wasn't read by someone paying enough attention.

I did like it, though, and would recommend it if you're into that sort of thing. I think if you like HG then you'll like this. There's lots more things to say, but I read two 500 page books today (though the font was kind of big), so I should probably go to sleep.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Anyone on my flist read Divergent by Veronica Roth? Do you own it? If so, would you be so kind as to transcribe pages 25 and 48 for me? I bought the first paperback edition yesterday, but sadly those two pages are just black blobs. The library seems to be out and I'm having a hard time finding a hardback copy (all of the paperback editions I've found have the same problem), so I can't get the pages for myself. I'll offer you a story in return (though my writing fandoms are rather limited) and love you forever.

Woo! AMC's Ultimate Marvel Marathon today. I'm actually already there. I wasn't sure how crazy the lines would be, but it turns out the theater didn't even open until 10 (I got here at 9:30ish), but there wasn't much of a line. There's actually only about 30 people in the theater right now, but there are 2 screens open for this marathon.

They're giving out limited edition Avengers themed 3D glasses, I got the Ironman ones, but I'm wondering if I should try to swap for Captain America instead. Very difficult decisons, I know. There's also a fancy pass so you can go in and out all day, and an Avengers comic (Ultron Quest). Happy early bday to me.

I broke my necklace at the gym, though. I'm disappointed but also baffled. I take it off and generally thread it through one of the zippers on my bag and when I pulled my back out of the locker after my workout I wasn't paying attention and caught the necklace on the locker. The result is a broken clasp. The baffling part is the fact that I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what happened. The clasp is broken, yes, but it's also not actually damaged. The pieces pulled apart, but there is no break anywhere that I can see. Nor can I see any way whatsoever to put the pieces back together. It's like they just passed through one another. Either that or it's like that magic ring trick where those solid rings are all connected until they're not, and then separated until they're not. Completely baffling.

In other news, I have to get blood drawn again tomorrow. Sigh.

In other other news, I'm going to AMC's Ultimate Marvel Marathon on May 3! I'm not super into the Marvel movies (actually, I've only seen Ironman 1 and Thor), but I'm not not into them so I thought it would be fun. Unfortunately, I will be going by myself since Thursdays are kind of hard for other people. Not that I have a problem going by myself, but it would've been more fun with people I know. onlyonechoice has been giving me Avengers tips, but if anyone else wants to add things they think I should know, please do!

I'm just getting into Doctor Who (new Who), too. I'm only about three episodes in, but I'm liking it very much :) Cheesy sci-fi, woo!

Also, dammit! The Bruins just lost Game 7. :(

Today is a day.

I had this whole (well, half) post that I was working on before lunch about how angry and frustrated I was, and I left it half-finished thinking that I could think over lunch and come back and better articulate my thoughts and hopefully also calm down and be in a better mood. I even decided to go out for lunch, even though I also brought food, as a treat to hopefully get myself into a better mood.

Instead, I unexpectedly ran into a good friend who I haven't seen in a while and we had lunch and ice cream and chatted and I gave her a mini-tour of my office since she'd never seen it, and I ended up in a much, much better mood. It was serendipitous and then we talked about several other serendipitous things that have happened to my friend lately and the weather is beautiful and hopefully I've set myself up for a lovely afternoon. At which point the workday will be over, I will go to the gym, and then go home to relax before hanging out with another very good friend who's coming to town tomorrow :)
