I'm at work, trying frantically to finish reading at least the main LJ Idol entries for voting by 6pm today (stoopid early deadlines!) My story is here, in which I did drabbles for the first time. Hope it doesn't come back to bite me. :O

I finished my Justified Fic Exchange story late last night, finally. I was all ready to post it with a lame summary and god-knows-what-title until I saw that I have a couple more days. At least it's done, though—that story did NOT want to be written.

The weekend: too much poking of both stubborn stories above, biking, running, a late anniversary celebration, and we signed up for streaming again at Netflix because of the Arrested Development revival. Even if it's only for a few months, it's worth it! This also allowed us to introduce the kids to Doc Martin, since we're now streaming that from the beginning. Lauren has only seen the pilot, while doing homework (of course), but Christopher is hooked.

So, did anyone travel last weekend? Or do Stupendous Things of note? Unlike me?

I loved your drabbles. Yours was one of my favorite entries this go round. :) There were a lot of super long entries this time and it was refreshing when I got to yours. It was enough to satisfy but leave me wanting more.

I did, uh, laundry... does that count? :P

Yay-- that's good to hear!

I've been writing drabbles for years (thanks to the Supernatural fandom, which had some drabble-challenge communities), but I've never used them in Idol. I love how concise they can be, though in a bad patch it takes as much effort to make them be 100 words as it does to write a longer story!

I'm reading entries at hyperspeed now (because too much writing meant delayed reading), and I'm longing for shorter ones for that same reason!

Was the laundry mixed with relaxation of some kind? Honestly, that's the kind of weekend I often wish I WAS having.

Back in the day, we would have gone to Marineworld with the kids.I'm sorry they're older, and that it's harder to find the time with their schedules and my Idoling to fit that in!

Yeah, there was some reading and walking mixed in. Most my friends, and my roommates were all gone for the 3 days so I just stayed home and hid from the crowds and tourists.

Is Marineworld similar to SeaWorld? If so, you'd have been very brave to go there over the holiday weekend. I go past SeaWorlds parking lot to get to where I walk and it was packed, even had cars in the over flow lot. I did go out back to watch their fireworks just before 10pm.

Right now they are at the stage where I enjoy them, a couple weeks from now that won't be the case. :P It always takes the cats a few nights to get used to them again. Right now they are still freaking out at the first couple BOOMS and running. A few days from now and they won't even open their eyes when it starts up.

MarineWorld isn't quite that big a production (though it gets horribly crowded on holiday weekends). It's actually called Discovery Kingdom now, and is mostly rides, but the old name seems to stick better!

Ah, nothing like freeloader fireworks! If you get close enough, the show is just as good. And you can come and go when you want to. :D
