According to LJ, I've been away for over a week now! Jeez, it is so like me to announce a hiatus and then post, but then fail to actually post when I am supposedly 'back'.
*nano--I can proudly say that I have crossed the 10 000 word barrier! I know that I am massively behind, but I am really just fine with getting to 25 000 by the end of November. I do believe that if this year had not been an election year then I would have been more focused on finishing Nano and not on the election and stuff like prop 8 and the thing in Florida. I've been reading a ton of articles about Prop 8 especially (Yay Pete for planning to go on Larry King Live, though I am so much more of a Rachel Maddow girl myself; but he didn't make it due to scheduling stuff---is Liberal Studies getting ready to make an appearance?). So yeah, past 10 000 words, and the plot is in my head just waiting to be typed; plus, I have some pages handwritten that I need to type, so I'm not as far behind as it seems.
* Since I passed my word limit, now I can read foxxcub's excellent new fic based on Pretty Woman
. I forced myself to abstain from foxxcub's awesomeness, so no one can ever say I lack will ever again. I definitely plan to read it tomorrow before I jump into nano tomorrow morning. (I just added a link to it just in case some of you haven't read it yet, but seriously, what took you so long?)
* I love my google blog reader because the SNL sketch with Justin Timberlake in drag danced along to Beyonce's latest cymbal :) If you haven't seen it yet, then you are missing so much hilarity. Just know that Timberlake can work heels so well and you can tell he's a dancer. Plus, can a girl ever have too much Paul Rudd? That answer will always be no :)
* I was going to have to post a rant about Grey's Anatomy and how it is being ridiculous in the bad way. Believe me, it was full of anger and actual profanity. Here is my actual note I left to myself on Google--So pissed right now. I'm calling bullshit on the Denny stuff and Callie and no amount of recollections of vases and kittens will make me feel otherwise!”
But to add to my WTF reaction: Grey's Anatomy is not, nor has it ever been, a supernatural themed show. Either way Izzie is crazy with this Denny stuff, and maybe they are leading to Izzie having a brain tumor and then dying off the show. I'm still upset with Dr. Hahn being sent off for frustrating reasons; but I am feeling too positive today to adequately convey my distaste.
* I find the bassist for Gym Class Heroes so attractive. What, I can be shallow sometimes.
is a sensible reason for the mustache of a certain drummer? I don't really think that, but I did find it interesting.
is anyone else watching the new season? I am loving it a ton, and I find Richard adorable :) He reminds me of Cliff, Marck's boyfriend on Ugly Betty. I don't have an early favorite yet.
*Every time I hang on Jezebel and someone mentions how slash is being written featuring Obama and Rahm Emanuel or Rahm Emanuel and Stephen Colbert (guys the roast video for Colbert is hilarious, even if you don't like politics, it is still funny) my head starts to explode a little bit. I know fannish behavior is 'out in the open' and all, but I still feel weird seeing fandom mentions beyond LJ and fanfiction.net.
*Oh I have a new challenge for super_bandom due this Wednesday, so if I post something on the f-list don't be surprised. Yes, I can do this while working on the nano. Speaking of other ideas, the Jon/Spencer 'not stalking' story fleshed out a little more and some more of that Pete/Spencer companion to the Nate/Patrick from months ago had some progress.
