Monday Monday, Dah-daaaah dah-dah-dah, Monday Monday...  
Hope everyone's weekend was good (except for those of you who haven't returned your PBFE stories yet! *Tsk-tsk*

If you haven't already checked out this piece of tongue-in-cheek hilarity that I posted last Friday, well... why not? Worth a chuckle.

Because of problems with the Slash voting issues at the Prison Break Fanfic Awards, there's a revote for "Best Slash fic" prior to the rest of Round 2. If you haven't voted there, please do so now. Unfortunately, I don't think there's any move to fix the "Best Slash Author" category. That, for reasons unknown to me, was listed instead as "Best Author Of A Slash Piece," which is a whole different ball of wax (and inappropriate, in my view). So I believe we are down to me vs. a very well-loved author of a not-slash Threesome fic, and someone who has never written Slash yet. Still grumbling over that-- many of you on my f-list have written PB Slash and were in the first-round nominations. I really expected to see all three finalists in that category actually be Slash authors (i.e., those who regularly write slash). :(

I'm posting up the stories day-by-day at the Prison Break Fic Exchange for Round 4. Some great stuff already-- take a look if you haven't!

The rest of the weekend, other than that, was remaining G.S. cookie delivery, more biking, Christopher's last "official" basketball game (fantastic team. Undefeated, even though they don't keep score at his age).

And on Sunday, I went jogging in the too-hot weather. aeroport_art is going to call me a wimp, but over 72-degrees starts to get hot to me, until I acclimate. Clearly not there yet. Because my husband was gone, I had to have the kids accompany me on their bikes. Lauren didn't think she could make it 3+ miles (was very pleased with herself when she did). The experience was more aggravation than recreation. When I did that alone with Christopher, it was "yak-yak-yak-yak-Hey Mama!-yak-yak-yak" because he Never.Stops.Talking. Gah! With the two of them, it was:
  "nyeh-nyeh-nyeh" "Stop" "nyeh-nyeh-nyeh" "Sto-o-op!" "nyeh-nyeh-nyeh-- " "Christophe-e-e-r!"


Yeah. Whoo. _o_ (no victory arms on that one)

How much of the "heat of doom" will you be here for? Are you moving away when you're done with college?

Because I'll still be here during the summer. And damn if I don't miss living in Oregon every single year when it comes around. :(

Oh, I'm high-tailing it outta Davis. I'll be here until mid-June, then escaping to France with my best friend :D We're gonna try and find work there. Wish I had some contacts, but nothing :( Anyway, I'll be there until my money runs out (been saving up for Years for this). When I get back to the States I'll either wind up in NYC for a gig in the fashion industry, or stay in the Bay Area to work in video games (which is where I wanna end up).

There! All my post-grad plans in one lj comment! :D

I would imagine that Oregon gets really hot in the summer :O I don't know why I have that impression, now that I think about it... :0 Hahaha. I've never really been, just passed through to Canada. Sounds like a happy place for you though :3 There's always family vacations! It's certainly close enough for it!

I grew up there, but actually in the relatively non-hot part.

If you go to Central or Eastern Oregon (i.e., to the East of the Cascades), it's hot. If you go to Southern Oregon, i.e., below Grant's Pass, it's also hot.

But the over toward the coast, or in the Willamette Valley or near Portland, it's so much cooler. About 10-degrees below Sacramento on a steady basis. And what a relief that is.

We do go there in the summer, because my parents and two of my sisters are there. The kids look forward to it forever! I do too, though I miss all the hiking we used to do in the Cascades before having the kids. Christopher is proving to have the grit for hiking. Lauren is a big slowpoke weenie, for whatever reason. ;)

Your plans sound great! Thank goodness for the Internet-- you should still be able to somehow keep in touch. :D
