Venus

Under the rug...

I requested a hc_bingo card a few months ago, and I'm just now backposting it. Hoping to do a little fanfic writing again, now that I have some time and mental bandwidth.

One of those things will be the nvrleaveharlan Hillbilly Remix Challenge for Justified fanfic. This is only my second Remix ever, and the first didn't go so well, but I'm game to try again!

HalfshellHusband's surgery went well (the metal plate/screw removal and exploratory pass). His surgeon tried out some new tools and techniques to accomodate the stiff muscles, and got good results, so that's promising. The hospital released HSH rather than making him stay overnight, so he'll get some beter sleep despite the pain.

We have a stockpile of library DVDs to watch, though our living room machine has been committing slow suicide for months. Finished Donnie Darko a few nights ago (dark, unusual, and haunting, but you can't not watch). On the reading front, I completed my books-with-due-dates stash and started in on a Read And Return book: An Arsonist's Guide To Writers' Homes In New England. Christopher already borrowed it and read it out from under me in one day. :0

Olympics coverage on NBC is hit or miss, as always. Collapse )

I've got some more LJ Idol stories to read, so that's it for now. Bis später!
