Surprise Christmas Moment!  
Ever have one of those times when you feel like you've gotten a present out of the blue?

Today I discovered that the lovely tyrical had actually read and left comments on all the parts of one of my best and most unread Prison Break stories, Parables Written In Blood. \o/ *bounces around the room*

What a wonderful surprise! *loves tyrical mightily*

Now, in the realm of good things waiting for me that I already knew about, I'm behind on the Plastic Winchester Theatre episodes, which means that good times are ahead when I catch up on them! Also have at least one more Die Hard John/Matt Big-Bang to read (skipped the BDSM one, worshipped the poisontaster one), and I've been loving the 4th-of-July ficathon over at hard4brains. Still thinking I might be writing one of those myself, though the number of half-finished stories I've got backlogged has balooned again. :0

Here in RL, it's a smoky world still. I went out cycling yesterday during a decent air-quality period (which tends to be as the temperatures go up), and that became v-e-e-e-r-y slow near the end. The air was worse and the temperature near 103o when I finished, and I was whipped. :( Going to have to call the ranger station for our campsite area to see whether we're camping on Sunday still.

Tell me something about you! What do you like, what do you want, why are you here? :D

Smoke again, eh? I know you get it sometimes during the summer but is it always this bad.

Seems like I see something about it on the news everyday you poor thing.

It usually isn't this bad-- most summers the smoke doesn't invade the valley, and the worst prior summer was a fire in Yosemite that took awhile to contain. That brought smoke up north here for 2 weeks (I remember it vividly, because Christopher had just been born and I couldn't even take him out in the stroller. Cabin fever! That was nine years ago).

There are so many fires this year (because everything's dry from lack of rain over the winter), and they've run out of people to help put them out, so they've been going on for weeks now. If I've read correctly, though, there have been 1700 this season in the state and "only" 322 are active right now. It's when you compare the 300 to the 1700 that you start to think that's not too bad. :0
