Who What Which?  
Got some Xmas shopping done this weekend, but not much on the outside lights (too rainy). I didn't get the inside decor done either. Instead, I sifted through the books/arts&crafts donations from my S-I-L for what to keep, which prompted me to clean out OUR many arts&crafts cupboards and donate 2 bags of great supplies to Goodwill. Including unused Playdoh, which was off-limits at our house because Lauren is a dingaling with not tracking mess out of the kitchen.

I also got off my @$$ and posted pictures/summaries of stuff I need to sell to craigslist. But not the blanket "Hello Kitty" listing of many, many room decorations/toys/etc. That's a dauntingly huge job. :0

We watched the Oregon/Oregon-State civil war football game, televised because it was the deciding game for whether the Ducks would go to the BCS. Yesssss!!! Though the BCS still persists in putting them at #2. Frak you, BCS. :(

Today, I'm loopy and rolling like a sailor because I got virtually no sleep last night. First, there was "awake-awake-awake". Then I dreamed I was at Wincon and fangirl roommates were keeping me awake (which did actually happen, but... dreams where people are keeping you awake means you're barely sleeping). Then massive sweating and tense muscles, 90-some minutes of being REALLY awake, and finally a strenuous bunch of sex dreams ultimately featuring Lex Luthor and class reunions and expensive Hawaii condos and helicoptors. Yeah. And? Sex dreams tend to be ultimately frustrating for the most part, in the last 10 years or so, because they now involve a real component. Getting adequately worked up, while asleep with no physical stimulation, and turning around successive 'incidents' in what theoretically amounts to seconds instead of the minutes/days of dreamtime... yeah. It takes a LONG period of dreamtime to hit success, and it's never as intense as it should be. For obvious reasons. *ahem*

I made it through the last rounds of Last Author Standing. The upcoming prompt for two of them (same prompt!) has me so stymied that I actually started one of the fics yesterday. Because that's how I roll!!! \o?

Meanwhile, I'll try to stay awake long enough to finish Cindy's fic (started, but not done), and get my other two birthday ones off the ground. Two so far, that is. ;)

I did wrisomifu last month, and really enjoyed the daily mod posts. I had my writing time for a minimum of ten minutes each day, MOSTLY writing (sometimes titles/summaries/woodshedding), and only a few days of the ultimate badness: *poke prompts and fandoms* "Germinate germinate germinate!" *flog-flog-flog* Nothing. *pout*

Maybe I'll get that monthly writing list posted up one of these days. For the last two months. You?

You need to work on those sex dreams if they're that anticlimatic

They're often eventually climatic, but as I said... they were a lot better before they hooked into the real-time physiology. Because back then, they were entirely dreams. Not dreams combined with reality.

i know this shouldn't make me giggle, but it did. it's just the way you phrased it.

also thank you for the vgift! i looked at the box and thought "there's a penguin in there, isn't there...." heh. /('v')\

:D No, it was written for the giggles. Which is different from the frustration of how it actually feels when that happens: Prompts! Fandoms! Why won't you MAKE something of yourselves? Auuuugh!

And any wrapped box can surely hold a nice little penguin. Who wouldn't want a penguin? :D

I gave up on wriso. Somebody there was really rude to me a couple of times, and I said to heck with it. It's not like I'm a writer, anyways.

Really? Awwww...

I think of you as part of the fun timez, going around and encouraging people.

But every now and then you run into people who are just randomly rude, as a basic part of their personality. I try to remember that they're rare, but I was thinking of a person like that just the other day from the SPN fandom. Talented, but zero people skills.

Hope you'll try again next year, because you ARE fabulous and fun and nasty people should not prevail!

Thank you. I think you're pretty fabulous, too. :D
