Faster, faster!  
Helicopters are circling the neighborhood, and yet I'm too distracted by trying to sign up for Yuletide to even wonder why.

Oh, Yuletide. I always seem to miss the window for submitting fandoms, and then when I go to see what's available to request/offer, it's this discombobulating experience of "Huh?" There are a lot of comics/graphic-novels/anime fandoms, most of which I don't know but which would be confounding to me anyway. Writing fanfic for an animated medium just glitches for me. If I've seen a film version with actors, it's possible, but otherwise... *brainlock* There are TV shows I don't watch, books I've never read or didn't like (hi, Susan Cooper!), and other puzzling things. Though I'm pretty sure I have these same thoughts every year. :D

Mainly, it's the pressure of, "But could I write a minimum-thousand-word story for this?" Because we all know my micro-ficcing tendencies. OTOH, I see that "Cities, Anthropomorphic" is a category, and I actually wrote something for that last year as an extra treat. Still... probably a fluke.

Bayern Munich RPF is on the list, and that rings a bell because it's the soccer team my daughter has gone nuts over (verified via Google, because how many teams have a player named Schweinsteiger ("pig overseer," or pig farmer))?

Nonetheless, I _will_ find something. And you should, too. Only two days left, and that's probably on European time!

I started reading this, and was like, "Oh, helicopters, this should be ..." Alas, not! Okay, back to my regularly scheduled Friday evening in the back yard. LOL

My husband had noticed them (and a police car or two) while out walking, but I immediately forgot about all that until I noticed I was hearing them... and they didn't seem to be leaving. :O

Well, hopefully nothing too serious/icky.
