what's up this saturday night

I've been doing visitor prep stuff all day, cleaning and laundry, and was despairing of getting any writing done.  Then I saw one of those "stop what you're doing and write now!" posts and scribbled out 671 words of a scene in my Chekov/McCoy ST fic I've been avoiding so.  *\o/*

I'm making sangria to chill in anticipation of my sister arriving tomorrow afternoon (Miss C will get limeade with soda water and a splash of raspberry syrup so she won't feel left out of the fun beverage-ness).  After dosing the fruity Italian wine with the traditional brandy/sliced & squeezed oranges and limes and a teensy bit of sugar, I decided to toss in a bunch of dark cherries that I pitted and halved as well.  Oh my glob, it smells amazing.

I spent part of last night looking up all the references to apocalypse scattered in episodes of Adventure Time and made myself all mope-y.

Then this afternoon totally succumbed to napping and had a dream I committed the perfect crime (murrrrrderrrrr, for those of you curious).  One of the points on my master plan to cover my trail was to donate a bunch of money to a local Girl Scout troop.  Now I feel like I should donate to a local troop for real in penance for my sleep-murrrrrderous thoughts.

I don't know where the hell I was when I heard this song, but "Sweet Talkin' Guy" has been whirling around my head almost nonstop the last day.

What's going on with you all this weekend?

I went OCD on my new office/art room and piled, boxed, organized and filed every damn thing I could get my hands on. Tomorrow is labeling. I am so excited. It's possible I need an intervention of some kind.

Do you have...a label maker? I used to love those when I had to label a zillion things for office work. I always had to convince myself not to steal the label maker.

I bet your office/art room looks faaaaaaaabulous!!!!

HAI! <3

I...might have a label maker. *shifty* I might also have labels that you can print on via the computer in fancy fonts. I might also also have multiple types of tags in various shapes, sizes and colors that you can stick labels on to. YOU DON'T KNOW.

It is looking really good!! I am super happy with it. It's light and bright and soon.. WICKEDLY PERFECTLY ORGANIZED MWAHAHAHAHAHA.

Eeeeeeeee, if I ever came to stay with you, you would wake up in the morning and find everything BEAUTIFULLY LABELED!!!!! Don't worry, I would come bearing replacement tags and computer label supplies.

Ooooh, will you take pics when you're done, so we can all admire the organization? I am actually not great at organizing my own stuff, but I love to admire those who are, and contemplate hiring them to make some kind of sense out of all the clutter round these parts.

OMG INVITE ME OVER AND I WILL ORGANIZE FOR YOUUUUUUUUUU. I love that shit. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Our old house was finally perfect before we moved and it actually made me sad I had nothing left to organize!

My husband thinks I am insane. But he's learned to stand back and let me do it my way, so he is SMART.

This place will take me a while to complete, but the office/art room is absolutely top of my list and YES YES I WILL TAKE PICTURES WHEN IT IS DONE. Wheee.

(I spend half my time on Pinterest on the makeup/beauty boards. The other half? Pinning organized pantries and closets. Seriously, I get a high from doing that like runners claim they get after a marathon.)
Jul. 27th, 2014 01:00 am (UTC)
I WOULD PAY YOU IN BISCOTTI AND SANGRIA!!!!! Seriously, I need h-e-l-p! Wow, I'm imagining your totally organized house and getting envious toe-wriggles.

All partners of an organize-y person should be so wise!

I can't wait; I bet it will look absolutely incredible. Oooohh, I should look at those Pinterest organized pantries and closets; I am always more jealous of people's beautiful pantries (when they have 'em) than of any other part of their home usually. We have a tiny tallish cuboard with random particle board shelves, but I want one of those walk-in gorgeous installed wood shelving beautiful organized dealios with easily accessible cans and cannisters and huge glass jars and slide out drawers and and kasdjfkl;asjdf;klajsdf;klj!!!!

I am DJ Leader on Pinterest. I have a board called dot org. On it, you will find NIRVANA. Go in peace my child.

And I would totally do it for you if I ever get to visit. It is in no way like work for me. I LOVE IT.
Jul. 27th, 2014 01:06 am (UTC)
HOORAY, I will look at your awesome stash of photos! And that would be the bestest, oh my god.

I would like to know why Captain America: The Winter Soldier isn't out on DVD yet. I JUST WANT TO KNOW.

I'm ready for bed, LOL, that's all I got.
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:40 pm (UTC)
Can I tell you, I had this LONG ASS COMMENT that was so detailed written out, and now I cannot find it *hands*

But my news is that my bathtub is now SPARKLING and the mister has vacuumed ALL THE FLOORS, and we are as ready for this visit as we are going to get.

I totally want to watch Winter Soldier with yoooouuuuu! I didn't even see it, because I just recently watched Captain America FA, and WS had already left theaters, because I am behind the times on errrrrything. *prods release date to make it sooner*

Hope you slept well and are feeling fine on this rainy day Sunday! <3

Mmmm, sangria sounds lovely, possibly moreso than usual because I have given up alcohol to count calories. That means I can have extra chocolate cake, right?

Aw, I love "Sweet Talkin' Guy!"

Today I did a run and it felt good! And then came home and discovered my playstation controller was broken. :( So in order to get my yoga DVD to work, I used the 'move' wand and that was . . . an interesting experience. I think I got almost as much of a workout whipping that think back and forth through the menu as I did doing the yoga. It is very overresponsive!
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:27 pm (UTC)
Ah, I that's hard. I never ever do well with managing eating that requires I give anything up entirely, though, so I wouldn't advise anyone to do it! So I would say you can have a small portion of sangria *and* a small slice of chocolate cake and cut back somewhere else for today/tomorrow, BECAUSE SANGRIA AND CHOCOLATE CAKE!

I like it, but I'd rather have "One Fine Day" if we're doing The Chiffons. But I guess wherever I heard "Sweet Talkin' Guy" doesn't share my favorites/tastes. :D

Good for you with your run; that sounds excellent. Wow, yeah, those playstation controls drive me nuts. We have netflix through our DVD player, and it's so much easier to go through the menus than when we visit friends and they're frantically waving that wand to try to choose whatever movie or show.

Yay for you with your yoga and running and all! *\o/*

I read book yesterday and finished my latest puzzle :) Today I have to vaccume and pack, 'cos tomorrow morning I'm taking the train down to my parents' house. Staying until friday because I :D am [finally] on vaccation!

Hope you have lots of fun with miss C and you sister :D

Jul. 27th, 2014 03:28 pm (UTC)
What a lovely day that sounds like! Oh, good luck with the cleaning. So, so worth it if you're on vacation and then you can come back to a nice tidy house.

Thank you; you have a great holiday as well! :*

This is the only ST:TOS icon I have. And the only way that I can think that it's apropos of your post is the nap thing. I have weird dreams when I nap (but not of murrrrrderrrrr, I don't think) and get groggy and emotional when I wake up. Yes, emotional! I don't know why.

Your sangria (as well as your Miss C version) sounds awesome!

I am doing *way* too much research for a blah-de-blah fan post which might turn into fic. Annnnd I really should be doing cleaning and laundry instead. But go you on your 671 words! *\o/*
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:34 pm (UTC)
Well, then, YOU NEED TO GET MORE! :D Ahaha, just kidding. I need to get more AOS icons, actually, as the fic I'm writing is more set in that world. Though it's kind of like Karl Urban / Deforest Kelley mash-up in terms of how I'm writing McCoy and envisioning, but pretty much all Anton Yelchin for Chekov, because have you seen Anton Yelchin especially in that first movie? Plus it's a mission/planet-visit fic that's way more TOS in flavor. But Jim is absolutely AOS Jim, though I'm trying to write him in this fic in such a way we can see some of the TOS Jim Kirk qualities coming through as he faces various situations.

But oh my god, I need to shut up about the milleau and context of this fic, because I think maybe like two people will read it besides me. It'll totally be one of those fics I do a DVD commentary no one asks for, though, because I am freaking loving writing it so much, wheeee!

THANK YOU, on the 671 words! Gah, the research can completely catch you up, I hear you! The other day I decided I didn't like the title I have going for this fic and spent far too much time exploring other options, none of which I settled on ultimately, of course. I say throw in a load of laundry and get back to your research if you're loving doing that, though! <3
Jul. 28th, 2014 12:46 am (UTC)
Ooh boy, I know all about the mash-ups. Those darn multiple canons can make things tricksy. When I went into writing superbat from writing Smallville, I had more than a few DCU people tell me that my Superman had a bit too much SV in him. But! Head canon, I couldn't help it. Yet head!canon is also what makes fic sing. I think you'll have more readers than you think. They will feel your fire and bathe in it!

I have no idea where I'm going with my research. Down a dark path, I'm sure. *g*

My in-laws are here this weekend.

*drinks ALL the sangria*
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:37 pm (UTC)
All the sangria is absolutely yours, along with a good share of eggplant slices, cherry tomatoes and slivers of basil with burrata cheese to serve along side it!
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:39 pm (UTC)

And they've left - hooray!
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:41 pm (UTC)
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:35 pm (UTC)
*invites self over for your delish-sounding sangria* :) Hope you guys have a good visit, it sounds amazing! And have a good rest of your weekend too! :)
Jul. 27th, 2014 03:38 pm (UTC)
You are always invited, for real! *finds another spot to stash an air mattress* Thanks very much, and same to you with your weekend, though I know yours is further along than mine! <3
