dizmo: A lemur sticking out its ridiculously long tongue. (misc: lemur tongue)
Yeeeeah, I'm definitely going back to crossposting to my LJ from DW consistently... on those occasions I post, which is rare, but I'd like it to be less so. There's a new year's resolution for you. A good chunk of my LJ-flist is doing the same, for reasons that probably don't need rehashing.

Anyway, anyone who's made the DW jump, feel free to circle me up however you'd like. Same username from LJ.

Right! Anyway! As for content! First thing's first! Yuletide!

It's always fun when the fic you receive is in the canon you requested that really, nobody needs any crazy canon knowledge in order to appreciate.

That being said... A bajillion thanks to my author, who wrote me Rest In Whirled Peace. It's Ben & Jerry's anthropomorfic and they're ice cream superheroes. I mean, come on, how can you not want to read that?

After I finished reading that... a couple times... I proceeded to show just how obsessed I was and read absolutely every fic with one Agent Phil Coulson of SHIELD in the Yuletide archive. (And then I did it again the next day with Madness.) And believe me, they're all delightful, whether or not my favorite NINJA BAMF IN A SUIT is a main character or not, so please, by all means, read them and enjoy if you remotely care.

There are, of course, numerous other fics that bear reading, but I really really suck at rec lists, and most of them have been covered in other places if you're looking for recs, so far be it from me to tread on old ground.

And now, changing trajectory slightly...

Sheer morbid curiosity had me do something in a fit of temporary what-was-I-thinking-ness last night. And I happened to actually find something hiding in the mists of the internet that I thought didn't exist anymore. That being what I'm pretty sure is my oldest surviving piece of (published) fanfic. It's X-Files, it was written when I was nineteen or so... give or take a year (we're talking so old I found it on an angelfire archive). The prose is ever so slightly purple. (Ahah. Yeah. Ever so slightly.) And I kinda wanna facepalm at my younger self for the thing, if not so badly as some of the ridiculous Mary Sues I safely paper-journaled about a few years before that. And I have a conundrum. Should I post it to the AO3, with a roughly appropriate backdate? I mean, for the interests of completeness, and to see how far I've come... but, again, facepalm. But I wouldn't want to orphan it either.

Hm. Maybe with appropriate tags to let someone know what they'd be getting into.

I'll contemplate further!

And in a brief interlude covering RL... Still sadly jobless... although it being my first Christmas season out of retail since, like, '03 or so? Let's just say it was a bit surreal being home on Black Friday.

But Christmas was marvelous. Got a Kindle Fire from Andrew and it is a ridiculously fun gadget. I'll definitely be using it as a tablet more than an ereader, though. (I've got my nook for that... Had a Sony Reader, but I broke it, oops, thank God for squaretrade... But I got reimbursed and went for a new model. Thing is LOADED with fanfic now, I love it.) But man, Angry Birds is so much nicer on that screen than my phone's. >_> He also got the LotR extended edition on bluray for my whole family, to go with the huge TV we got earlier this month. :) In addition, as I commented on twitter on the day, I really appreciate socks and underwear as gifts so much more now than I did as a kid.

Also, the presents I gave were pretty much universally well-received, which always makes me extremely gratified. I love picking out the perfect present. Although the individual that expressed the most joy was, of course, my dog, who got a squeaky toy and went into transports of delight. Good times.

Anyway, wow, I think I've just said more than I've said in ages combined, so I'll leave it at that! TTFN!

Oh, Lord.

I have not done a substantive journalpost in ages. I dunno, it might be because I think my life is kinda... silly-like uninteresting and nobody would particularly care.

But I'll do a handful of just... random musings.

I was a bit sneezy today. But now all of a sudden, I'm HELLA CONGESTED. That is so amazingly UNCOOL.

My birthday? Was fabulous. Andrew (my boyfriend. Who, I know, I also haven't blogged about, really, which... I really need to do that, since we've been dating since, like... April? ... Okay, yeah, that's sad. BUT LATER.) got me flowerrrrrs. And like the most awesomest card ever.

... Although I think if this snuffleness is a cold, I got it from him, so... there's a TRADE-OFF, here.

I have signed up for MTYG and Yuletide. And will be attempting NaNo again. I'm insane. :b

I have become somewhat addicted to Batman/Superman slash. ... Yeah.

WTF Cubs.

But I'm nominally rooting for the Phillies, insofar as I ever follow baseball after we're eliminated.

Um.... Adopt one today! <--- Click my dragon egg? Please? :D :D :D

I have no idea how it's almost November already. I'm not entirely sure where June went yet.

fgasdkasdf I get back to work from my laze-about-at-home vacation on Friday. ... And Monday night is the start of holiday changeouts. Glaaaaaaaaah.

I have the urge to write fic of some kind. I just have no idea what. This is most annoying.

Doesn't it just figure that this past Sunday, what will probably be my only Sunday off during football season, was the Bears' bye week?

Why do I seem more broke lately than usual?

I can't help the feeling that I'm seriously missing some topic I wanted to talk about, but I can't for the life of me imagine what it might be.

... I might do another randomness post of some kind later. If you have anything you wanna see in it, feel free to request it in a comment. :D Maybe it'll even be whatever it was I forgot about! :D
