Venus

Vacation on the Horizon...

And I'm hoping it's warm in Santa Cruz. Looks like it's not going to rain, so that's good news! Leaving tomorrow...

I'm working at home today, and the kids are home this week making each other nuts. I sent them out to a park with my husband where they can get some space from each other if need be (or alternatively, not be bickering in the house). Meanwhile... how many times can a person debug the same area of code without going blind? Argh.

Made a stealth trip to get my remaining Easter supplies, namely the small pkgs of Peeps and the chocolate bunnies. But! Walgreen's does not have the Baby Binks bunnies I've been buying since the kids were toddlers! This had better not blow my cover...

Finished the On-Hold library books (juvenile fiction). Irked once again by misplaced Briticisms ("Right!" and "burgle" and other giveaway phrases) in stories about Vikings. It would be like finding "Dude" or "Yeah, right" in the same setting. The books are fun though-- featuring the hapless Hiccup and his scrawny friend Fishlegs and their failed attempts to learn how to become Viking warriors. All of these Vikings have dragons (which they must steal from the Dragon Nursery themselves), and while "Toothless" is a funny name for Hiccup's fairly pathetic dragon, his friend chose the name Horrorcow for his. That's just all kinds of funny and wrong to me. Said dragon has all the fire and initiative of a cow, too. :0

New Reaper tomorrow night! Must record, since we'll be out of town. I'm still debating the recent developments in New Amsterdam. Collapse )

And in case you haven't already seen it, a lovely Jensen/Jared OTP Manifesto by speakfree. That perked up my day! ♥
