Looks like I've been dropped from writerverse after all, for inactivity. I kind of expected that to happen once Idol started, so no biggie. This should give me a little time to start my Never Leave Harlan Fic-Exchange story, though I currently have no ideas for it. I may be nagging Cindy and some of you other Justified fans for sooper-sekrit brainstorming purposes.

Feeling a little better about our kitty, which is to say, not crying all the time. Thanks to those of you who offered kind words last week. We'd intended to make her plaque this last weekend, but opened it Sunday afternoon to find "Using a small bucket..." in instruction #1 (WHAT bucket?), and mention in instruction #3 of transferring the design to the cement (After how long? Right away? An hour? What?). So, looks like that will be next weekend instead. :O

For LJ Idol this week, I tried out time travel. I love so many aspects of time-travel lore, and suddenly was in a mood to try it out. Mission accomplished!

In movie news, I am so dying for a Saturday night date, but nothing in the theaters is grabbing me. Our favorite local theater has been wasting two screens on MovieA and MovieA-3D for months, leaving little room for other things (only 6 screens). Feeling housebound!

What have the rest of you been up to? Besides sweating over your taxes?

The results from my MRI are back. Unfortunately they called right before they closed for the day, and I missed the call by a mere 5 minutes :headdesk: I'm so frustrated and cranky right now it isn't funny. Oh, and did I mention that my knees hurt?


I got my taxes done early last month. Got my Fed refund in less than a week :boggle: Of course, I probably won't see the state refund until September if I'm lucky...

Argh-- you just missed the update? It would be better not to know that the results are ready!

Sorry your knees are still hurting. I saw you mention that this whole work-related snafu might have kicked off some latent arthritis. :(

Yay for taxes being done! I got ours finished about a month ago, and it was nice not to go down to the wire. :)

I've been frantically fending off being dropped from writerverse for a while now, but I'm having trouble keeping up over there, even with no Idol. I think I may need a writing break, but giving myself permission is hard, because sometimes it's necessary to write when you don't feel like it.

Those are bizarre instructions. More *hugs* for you.

My taxes are already done. I hope yours get you a good result!

I thought I was still "just in" writerverse, because I'd done a few things related to their Book Bingo. Except I never saw a followon after the card!

It did help me write some unexpected original fiction, which was really nice-- helps keep you from getting rusty.

I finished our taxes a month ago, but we've had some obnoxious years. One was the "filed state taxes on the 14th, got a form from MIL's estate about new income on the 15th." You can't 'recall' mailed taxes, or mail a "Wait, use this one instead!" version. We had to wait until the state processed them (4 months) before we could file an amendment. Yark.

i still haven't done my taxes. i'm hoping they'll be really straightforward so i don't have to panic about tax weirdness as well as tax procrastination.

last month i got two free movie tickets from work (i guess they were that week's work perk) and i haven't used them yet because i don't think there's anything i want to see either. well, and i have to use them at an amc theater, and i haven't figured out which theaters near me are amc. so i feel you on the wanting to see a movie but not wanting to see anything that's actually out.

should i start throwing justified plot bunnies against the wall to see what sticks? :D i missed having to watch it tonight!

Only a few more days on the taxes! Don't wait-- especially because you had unemployment benefits this year!

I'll email you the info on my assignment tomorrow, and we can chat about possible ideas. I could use the help!

We're behind on the episodes-- at 7 or 8 right now-- but I hope to get caught up soon. :)
