I am working an extra day this week and I am sooky about it. But I get to order my lunch today instead of bringing it, which is a nice bribe. I had an amazing burger, so amazing and full of wonders. Like, bacon.( I'd link to my instagram but that's in my meatsack name and only half of you know that /is good at secret identities like Daredevil )
Tentative yay: I started writing again. It's mostly due to the neighbour dude, who is a great neighbour except for those random days when he gets out the chainsaw. (Not in a massacre-y way, just in a endless drone-y way.) So I put on my headphones and opened a file and wrote, and somehow chainsaw neighbour dude helped me over that initial hump of fear. But not in a massacre-y way. I finished the rewrite on Chapter One of the Winter Soldier NaNo project, yay. Thanks, chainsaw neighbour dude.
A question: Where does Sam live? Are there any clues in the movie? Pic to illustrate, if that is helpful.( Someone's knocking at the window )
The crochet world lost an artist this week.( CN: mental illness, suicide )
Here, look at Nomi and Amanita. From Sense8. Precious babies. I love them so much.

I just watched Ep 4. (The one with the Four Non-Blondes bit, for people who have already finished watching.) Ugh, I never knew how much I wanted an 8-way mindmeld. At the same time, eight characters is a lot to work with. (This is me thinking ahead to when I will inevitably want to write a Sense8 AU with another fandom. Eight characters? Wow. But so interesting.) I need to know more.
I was listening to Kate Bush's 'Cloudbusting' the other day, and realised that I've been listening to this song for nearly thirty years and never actually looked up what the heck it was about. (It's a good forward-moving song, so I put it on a lot of my writing playlists. And also my housework playlist.) Turns out it's about a lot of stuff. A LOT OF STUFF
. Like, wow. Mad science and oppressive governments and orgasmic (I think?) energy and actual cloud seeding.
The video was directed by Terry Gilliam and it stars Donald Sutherland standing on a hill, and Kate Bush standing well below him in a pixie wig. I should google more lyrics from the eighties. ( I put the video here behind the cut: )
Things I have found on etsy: ( Come window shop with me! )
Ugh, I could shop forever, and my house would be full of tiny useless but pretty stuff. So much better to share here.

Ahaha, don't fuck with working dogs. And working dog people. I'm just saying. Unless you want to be given the eye and moved into a pen.

For maximum Middleman effect, say these out loud, and add "Dubby!" at the end.

OMG, it's nearly home time, again! You know, if I got my act together and posted more than twice a month, these things would be a little less epic.
