I'll be checking in less in the next few days, as we keep busy with the holidays.
The baking is done-- 4 DOZEN batches of cookies, and you'd think that they (and their uncooked batter) would lose their appeal after awhile, but sadly... No. I did manage to write Dialogues in Faith around two of the batches, and I'm lucky it turned out as coherent as it did, what with interruptions every 7 mins. 50 seconds. A saner person would have just waited :-)
My after-hours time, which is usually spent writing fics, will be devoted to the Stealth Mode activities that most parents engage in this time of year. I even have the super-secret Santa paper well hidden away. Haven't been busted yet....
For my Slash-fan friends, I've got some visual recs for you.
First, from lexalot, this fantastic Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki (Supernatural boys) manip. I put it first, so you can duly appreciate it before diving into...
this incredible entry devoted to Boy-Kissing, which I gacked from foxxcub. It is beyond Slashtastic. Makes my heart start zipping along so much that it's kept me up late the last couple of nights!
Enjoy, and be good to your loved ones and to yourselves.
