It's been so cold that over the past few days the tree out front has developed a split I can put my thumb into, about a yard or more long. This makes me very sad. eor
thinks I shouldn't call the city because he supposes they'll just take it down. I'm thinking that if that paint was sprayed in there it might be saved. eor
thinks it's going over and won't park the car under it. I think it's going to die but not fall. Anyone have any ideas? Barring that, anyone want to place bets? ( The 'what science-fiction writer are you most like' meme... but, I don't know who he is. )
Since I'm here editing for something else anyway, I might as well add - When Gregory Benford himself
took the above test it told him he was someone else. Arthur C. Clark, I think? I find that amusing. :) ( and what house paint I am! )
We have the Granada Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett, the second season! Only on loan from one of eor
's co-workers, which is kind of better because it means I can legitimately push for watching it just as much as he can stand, so that we can return it soon. ( pacing uneven, but slash abounds )
I also have new music! My brother Hawk sent me two CDs - One of Loose Digits, who I know he plays with, and the other is King County Hay Ride. I don't know what his relationship to them is, exactly. I feel bad that, although I recall him talking about them, I can't at all remember what he said.
I haven't had a chance to listen to them, yet, because my CD drive is still acting up. Read: not doing much of anything. The lights flash, but nothing else happens. And I'm inclined to think that if the lights flash it can't be completely unplugged, but I have to get the case open and see. Which I can't do until I turn it off, which I can't do until I post this post. So I'd better get crackin'.
Quickly, then, on to the big Fic Roundup of the week of 01/14 - 01/20!
First up, daegaer

's Mr Wooster and the Birthday Gift

's If I Might Say So, Sir
- No hearts here. Sorry. Perhaps with a good, harsh beta it might be made into something.
There were a couple of other things I read, of course, but they're locked down so there's no point linking to them. ETA! anima_mecanique
's From the Journals of Dr Dawson
has come unlocked! ♥♥♥♥ and a yay!!
And now I think I'm too tired to open my computer, tonight.
Oh, I did want to mention - though this is of interest to nobody but me, I'm sure - ( we went out and opened new bank accounts )
Damn, this is the post from hell, even with all the cuts. Must stop now, even though I just thought of a little work story I had wanted to tell. Maybe tomorrow.
