The Things:

  • Thank you to everyone who checked out my new blog and commented or liked it on Facebook. I was overwhelmed by the response to my dorkdom. Hearts!

  • We are leaving for Walt Disney World in 2 days! It's like the Mother Ship is calling me home!

  • Jonah picked out a hot pink Jeep Cherokee stroller to traverse the parks and is taking his plush Daisy Duck as his Plus One. Between tooling around in a hot pink ride with a duckette wearing lavender and pearls and being super excited about Cinderella's castle, I think my almost 4 year old boy is giving a big FU to traditional gender roles. Can I get a what-what? Of course, his mother will be standing alongside with precisely placed highlights, turquoise glitter polish (looks like town to me) and inches of tanned legs between short-shorts and platforms, looking like a fresh tube of lip gloss on Christmas morn, but we're both keeping it real.

  • I have been KNOCKED OUT by "Game of Thrones" and "Mad Men" this season, but woefully underwhelmed by HIMYM. I don't watch a lot of comedies (Community, 30 Rock, HIMYM & Big Bang) but when I'm finding Ted my favorite character, I think something's gone wonky.

  • My husband finished another semester of his doctoral program with a 4.0 for the semester -- his Admin in Higher Ed class was kicking his butt, super tough prof -- and now he only has 4 semesters to go and of course the dissertation. I'm incredibly proud of him as he balances his assoc dean / professor duties in a single income family and still has time to be an involved father and read everything I write and listen to what I overheard at the gym every day.

  • WHY did none of you tell me about "Revenge"??? I watched all aired 20 eps over 2 days. OMG the tawdry fabulous! I also caught up on "Girls" on HBO, and I have thoughts on it, but it needs its own post when I'm not packing and cleaning at the same time.

  • "The Avengers," in case you haven't heard, kicks massive ass. I don't know what Joss Whedon's thing is with schwarma ("I mean, what's that all about? It's a big meat hive!") but I like it. Oh, and if you've seen The Avengers, read this: Avengers Dissemble by [ profile] spuffyduds

  • Hi! Hi! I'm tripping protein bars and lots of Omega 3!

    FYI? I smell really good today. Just thought you might like to know. Stupid LJ and its lack of scratch-n-sniff function.

    Wes/Angel question )

    Writing update )
    crazydiamondsue: (Pride [spygurl121])
    I've got stories that need finishing. Nothing's happening on the keyboard but LJ spam. So. I find I can get creative whenever I can snark and not worry about where the story's going. However, I can't think of anything to snark. I need to write something in the vein of It's All Been Done or Post-Apocalyptic Trends.

    So...thoughts? Cracktastic stories you've considered but would never write ('cause you're classy)? Pairings or plots I've never attempted and you've thought...mmm...wonder what Sue would do with that? (You don't think about me as often as I do? Carry on.) Cliches you want poked? Fanonish things you've (and I've) done that need piss taking? Things that you think are just flat out silly? Anything on the show that needs sending up? (I've already done 3/4 length leather coats in June and that Angel was a merry nun rapist...anything else?)

    Note: I don't want to poke at any one person or any one type of fic, so please be general in your suggestions (in other words - funny, not mean.) Plot ideas are fine, just not "make fun of *this* kind of fic. Oh, and no musical parodies. That's [ profile] stoney321's gig. So help me help you laugh at the Buffyverse (in a loving, obsessed way.) Crossover ideas are okay as a minor plot or throw-off line. Anyone?

    ETA: I want this to be as ensemble-y as possible, but I know I'm including Dawn, Oz and Harmony, if that helps anyone...
