*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.
dizmo: It's a carp.  With a halo.  Holy carp. (misc: holy carp)
I am actually making a journalpost over here. Not that I hardly ever do to my LJ, so... yeah. Don't expect me to become crazyprolific all of a sudden. XD So have some randomness!

So, yes. Really can't wait for my Yuletide assignment. I have to wait like a week of course, but... aaagh, I have no patience.

Really really kinda hope I end up paying out the grand prize for my [livejournal.com profile] fortycakes ULTRAMEGACHALLENGE, despite how much work that would give me. I mean... that would be so epic.

My grandma's staying over at our house for a while. At least through the holidays (and her 95th birthday!). Which is good and less good at the same time. Good because I love her to death and all, less good just because it...really kinda messes with routines a little. But this is definitely a case of the good outweighing the bad and all, so yay!

I inadvertently bit into a patch of mold on a tangerine the other night. EWWWWW.

I've kinda gotten into City of Heroes lately. Was doing some missions with my boyfriend and was so amused at the nerdity of the developers. Can we say rescuing Lois Watson, Peter Kent. and Jon "Booster" Rhodes? And getting Tony Kord as a contact? Bwahahahaha. Ah, good times.

Anyway, that's all for now, I'll be signing off! Until... whenever!
