on the farm

A strawberry farm, to be exact.  Too bad I'm here at the beginning of the season, not the end.  Mmmmmm, strawberries.  My first farm client, kinda exciting, kinda not cause, well, it's work.  They hire migrant workers here -- mostly from Mexico and Trinidad -- and they're starting to come in.  I have a stack of Mexican passports on the desk where I'm working and I'm paranoid that I'm going knock them over or something.  I'm 2 hours south-west of Toronto, in Simcoe, ON.  Port Dover is about 20 minutes south of here and I'm hoping I can do a quick trip.  Don't think I've seen Lake Erie before. 

Ticket to the NKOTB summer tour was successfully purchased!! Woohoo!!  I was bummed at first cause I totally missed out on the 5/4* packages but thanks to my brother and his Amex card, I did the Front of the Line pre-sale and scored a Row G, centre section, seat!!  The one plus side of attending concerts by yourself -- you get awesome seats when you're just buying a single ticket. 

I've started reading fanfic again!!  \o/   Right now, it's Merlin/Arthur but yeah, if anyone has any recs, be it Merlin/Arthur, SPN (I don't mind Wincest), Doctor Who, Torchwood, Legend of the Seeker, Chuck, Castle, Robin Hood... bring it on!  Any length, as long as the writing is GOOD.  I haven't seriously read fanfic since my Brokeback days (where I'm still waiting for some WIPs to be finished, if the author doesn't think s/he'll finish it, that's fine, just let us know, that's all I ask).

I'm starting to cough and my throat is sore.  DO NOT WANT.

Back to work now.

I'm staying over. Went to the hotel last night, I didn't make a reservation cause, really, why would I? But the place was almost booked up! I couldn't believe it. The only non-smoking rooms they had left were the honeymoon suite and a room with a king + jacuzzi. I was responsible and took a smoking room (blah) but damn, now I'm thinking I should've taken the jacuzzi room! I would've just paid the difference myself.

Ohhh, thanks! I don't mind AUs (the first fic I read was one). RPS, not really my thing but I'll give them a try.

Shing is roadtripping for work? Wild! I was confused for a minute, because strawberry season ended a couple weeks ago, then I remembered the Canada is not Florida thing. Even though I don't need pants in either place ;)

Actually, the farm sells a lot of their strawberry plants to farms down in Florida during Jan/Feb so that makes sense. Strawberry season here is June/July. Damn right you don't need pants cause you're hardcore!
