not really that exciting...  
yeah, I'm so boring these days, I feel like I have nothing to write about. Even when I actually DO something, or I haz thoughts, I don't bother to write them down anymore.

I'm going to start with something at least!

- we went to see Finding Dory yesterday. I got a bit choked up when it hits the parenting cord pretty hard, but otherwise, the story's pretty much exactly what you expect it to be. but it's cute.

- we saw the Fourth fireworks locally, it was nice. Not a ginormous show, but well-done.

- my computer died on me on tuesday. it abruptly, decided that it was no longer gonig to let power come in, so it just choked and died. Luckily I'd done a fairly recent backup, but geek squad was able to transfer all my files. even, the, um, copy of Winter Soldier I'd forgotten I'd downloaded. ahem. Now to rebuild all my programs. And remember my passwords. ugh

- so after the news that the laptop was unrecoverable (or might have been, but not for what it was worth certainly), I got a new one today. Samsung - and in theory it should share files with my Galaxy phone so I'll have to figure out how to set that up. It's got a touch screen, which is new and shiny - it's  computer! It's a tablet! -  but I guess DVD drives are now old-school. Might have to get one, I'm not sure yet. I have a lot of CD/DVDs still, so probably.

- writing-wise, I'm still trying to get Comes the Hurricane and The Last Contract finished up, so I can start doing the real work on my Marvel Bang. This whole writing a chapter and posting it business is just awful. How do people do this? Granted, I tend to rewrite as I post anyway, but at least I have a first draft finished before I post. This? WINGING IT IS SO NERVE-WRACKING.  What if I do it wrong? What if I forget a character or some other dumb thing?  Also, I feel so badly for readers  who have to wait while I try to think all this through in more detail. (and then I look at other WIPs and they're like, months, between chapters, so I'm still ahead fo them, but still), I feel like it's just sloooooow.  But at least they're both in the homestretch now.  I think I said that before, but it's even more true now.

- meanwhile I'm watching the Hiddleston fandom meltdown because of the whole Taylor-Tom thing, which is hilarious. I think they're cute, but it's funny how the mainstream media is like "who the fuck is that with Taylor? why is she being all kissy-face with this nobody?" and then the Hiddles fandom ranges from "awww" to "wtf why her?" to "bitch get away". But all the "they must be faking it!!" is so silly - they were holding hands in St. Peter's. I mean, okay, there's publicity stunts but living a lie to that extent seems a bit... overkill.

I had no idea they were dating at all until I saw one of the checkout magazines the other day. And my basic reaction was "THAT IS SO ADORABLE".

Ugh, on the laptop dying. I cross my fingers weekly that mine will never go.

ugh, my computer was JUST FINE. and then, poof. sucks.

the tom/taylor thing is so funny because they danced together at the MetGala, so after that, I was so sure that the rumors were just blowing up that chance encounter into something clickbait-y. But no! Joke was on me, and it was in fact all totally true. Guess tabloids can actually be right once in a while.. lol

There's a Facebook group I'm on that BANS all mention of Hiddleswift!
On Monday, I was in barnes & Noble when a young couple started discussing Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift.
It's all so ridiculous and hilarious.

I wonder if he finally gets a proper mention in People's Sexiest Men issue this year...

bans it? wow, that much controversy lolol.

Comic Con, if he really does go for Skull Island, is going to be even more insane since now it's not just his own nerd celeb status, but he's now getting into Twilight levels of crazy tabloid attention. it'll be interesting to see what happens there. And for People, It's certainly more possible now than last year!
