A hodgepodge  
Last night we lost power for about two hours because of high winds. Luckily the neighboring electrical grid was fine so we went out to dinner and took our time. When we were getting ready to leave, I called the power company and went through their whole phone tree thing to get to the status report. I even got to talk to a real person eventually, BUT... they had no estimate for when it would be back. So what's the point of the option? jeez. However, power was restored fairly shortly thereafter. It was a bit spooky to drive through the neighborhood and all the houses and streetlights and everything were dark (especially when there's normally christmas lights right now).


Boy, was comment notifications screwed up yesterday or what? I did get everything eventually (I think), but some of it was in the wrong order, so I got some replies before the comments,and weirdly the message center was the last place anything showed up. huh.


Finished my yuletide fic. HOORAY! cookies all around! Hopefully the recipient likes it. "Thanks! Just what I always wanted!" To think I had all these grand plans for long and plotty. Hopefully short and porny is a good present too.


I've read a lot of things on my, ahem, writing breaks, but haven't told anybody so. Am bad fangirl. There've been lots of good fic from the sg_rarepairings ficathon. Alas, mine sank like a stone, but oh well. It just makes me want to write more BSG, so y'all on that side of the f-list should be happy.


On a final note, my husband's present to me -- currently taunting me underneath the tree - weighs a TON! I have no idea what it is. It's driving me nuts, because I usually can guess what his gifts are. But he'll never guess what one of my presents to him is. *cackling*

Ah, gotta love the holiday torture of "what is that?"

*I* liked your rare pairings fic, and yay for finishing the yuletide one, though I haven't had the chance to real yet. But porny is good.

And, yeah, LJ gets screwed up every time they try to add new stuff.

not in school, dude! so, probably not. :) But it's about the size of a shirtbox, and yet appears to be made out of rocks. very mysterious.
