Good evening, flist! How are you tonight? I am laying around after a delicious Ma Po Tofu dinner and watching Hawaii Five-0 in order to ogle Daniel Dae Kim. Mmmmm, Jin.


Anyway! We are heading into one of my favorite times of year - the holiday season! The weekend after next should be fun, what with the Halloween potluck at work on the 29th, Jon Stewart's rally on the 30th, and I plan to have a quiet Halloween with a couple movies and perhaps a teeny pumpkin. It's not going to be as much fun without Sarah and Miranda, but I'll make do.

But then after that! Much more fun things begin. I'm talking, of course, about NaNo and Yuletide.

As per usual, I will be using NaNo as an excuse to step up my productivity, since I'm already working on a book. I did a full outline of Hungry Ground while stuck on lunch receptionist duty yesterday, and it looks like it's going to be 17 or 18 chapters, and I want to see if I can't get two or three done in November.

(I also usually use this time to work on holiday drabble requests, but between the book, Yuletide, and the new job, I definitely won't get those done this year. I will, however, be able to do holiday cards more efficiently, since I spend a lot of time at work sitting on my butt waiting for my diplomats to need something.)

And then, of course, there is Yuletide. Yuletide babble! )

And now we return to your regularly scheduled Daniel Dae Kim. Have a good night! ♥

Varied entry for a varied weekend!

- I bought my first pair of fancy jeans today! I've always been wary of buying the more expensive brands, but this was really worth it. Normally I can't stand it when something is that close a fit, but they are super comfortable and make my ass look fantastic. And I love when people realize that girls can be short and curvy. Definitely a great purchase. ♥

- My work wardrobe in general has expanded quite a bit! My closet is embassy-ready. That's a nice feeling.

- I never thanked you guys for your great drabble suggestions. So thank you! They totally got me inspired... although not in the way I thought! I spent most of my trip last week thinking up ideas for the drabbles, and then after I wrote one on Monday, I then wrote about 4000 words of The Hungry Ground instead. The chapter will be done early this week, and then I'll definitely return to the drabble prompts. I at least have to write the Possession ficlet about Felix and Lady Gaga.

- [ profile] imaginarybeasts #22 will go live next weekend, and I have a story in it this time! It's funny how so far, I've been in the winter issue and the summer issue. Anyway, the new story is called "five days with the bride of the ocean," and I hope that y'all will like it.

- Have I not screamed about Legend of Korra yet? This is a grievous oversight indeed. Let's try this again: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. This is going to be awesome, guys. SO AWESOME. ♥ ♥

So that's what's up with me. What's going on with you guys?
