*massive wavings, first and foremost, to my newly-added fellow tag wranglers*

So yes, major piece of news is that pretty much as soon as I got my AO3 open beta account (I managed to snag number 7 in the queue, because, really, I'm just that awesome), I volunteered for the tag wrangling crew.

I pretty much anti-regret it. It's beyond fun and we're all crazy and awesome with just a hint of the necessary OCD required to wrangle those darn wuzzles, so... yes. Good times!

And I seem to be picking up new fandoms whenever I sneeze. No, I did not mean that literally.

I will admit that jumping face first into that is a large contributing factor why I utterly dropped the ball on a new [livejournal.com profile] fortycakes prompt for this week. By the time I looked up from that and the three semi-overnights I was working, I looked up, and... uh, it was this morning. But there will be a new prompt come Sunday, honest to goodness.

I'm in the middle of canon-refreshing for Yuletide. It's going a tad bit more slowly than I had anticipated, but it's also totally reminding me why I love the fandom in question in the first place.

Other major news of the day... I'm actually biting the bullet and taking a couple classes again next semester. I think the break from school was really what I needed, but everything runs its course in the long run, and I think I'm going to be happy with it. *knocks on wood*

Back to the first bit of news, I have to say it's kind of fun having a conversation with your mother in which you attempt to explain tag wrangling. Including as a bit of a humorous anecdote the massive conversation on the mailing list concerning synonyms for fellatio. XD

Aaaand I think that about covers it for now. I'm crossposting this one to LJ, just because it's also a post I would have made over there as well, although I'm still on the fence about whether or not to make the official move. We'll see.
