Venus

Posting because I can (and haven't much lately)

So, thelana wondered where the heck I've been again, and it all comes down to August being the month of dooooom.

Here's my August, pretty much every single year now: pre-vacation work overload, vacation w/o Internet, BOTH kids' birthdays (shopping), planning for and hosting at least one kid's party (maybe both), school starts (!), post-vacation work flailing. And this year, we also went camping. Yarg.

Hence, the absentia. I posted some short stories last week, but that was it.

Fic: I finished the SPN schmoop story just posted at the last minute for its schmoopfest deadline last week—up until 2am Thursday night on that one! At some point last week, I also read destina's wonderful Night Country, which put me on a John/Dean binge for some reason even though I don't really like that pairing. I read a bunch of good stories, though, which I'm hoping to rec soon.

Kids' books: Got a few more to post about and add to my larger rec list. A really good kids' book can be enormously entertaining.

Okay, too much about me already. Were you good while I was gone?
