why i don't trust the world
children of dune - leto 1
seperis
So, yesterday, in a fit of some of the oddest and most uncharacteristic optimism ever, I applied for a car loan over the phone. A few hours later, I checked my credit union webpage to check my account balance and for kicks, looked under the loan tab.

They gave me *conditional approval*.



To give this context, I should have one of the worst credit scores in creation. I mean, in the last year, I've been rebuilding it into a pretty, pretty thing, and my new job gave an interesting raise, but I was expecting an outright denial. But no. 12,000 at 5.4, fifteen percent down. Yeah. So I called today, pretty sure this is some kind of clerical error, but no. They confirmed and expressed joy that I chose them to take money from.



Yeaaah. Shoe. Waiting for the shoe. Or three.

Child's utterly healthy and still throwing up after various, random meals. It's not the lactose, or at least, not just, so visit to doctor on Friday, probably chased with a gastro person. I'd be more tense, but his last two visits with the doctor, he was *fine* otherwise--normal weight gain, normal growth, etc. So basically, I have a child mysteriously sick at random intervals. He takes it well. I suppose the GameCube is consolation, except he hates missing school. Child is Very Odd sometimes.

Anyway, ordered a DVR upgrade, so I can start recording from the satellite, with a lot less hassle than expected, and this makes me nervous. I don't like too many things going right. Delivered and installed on Friday. That's just unreal.

*bites nails*

Also, parallactic has the coolest idea ever - B/J Noir. The guilty edition. It's so pretty and angsty. I think it's almost our duty as QaF fans to like, convince her to write it. Read the comments between josselin and parallactic too. Muchly interesting food for thought.

See? *Good* things happening. It scares me.

And I've *got* to stop biting my nails.

I was about to tug on your sleeve and point out the [lj-cut="boring jenn] error, but don't worry. It's fixed.

Good luck on getting her to write that fic. Sounds... highly interesting. (In the way that I won't read because fics that end in mutual self-deception just to keep everything together depress the hell out of me. It's just... incredibly sad.)

It took me a sec to figure out what went wrong.

*frowns at LJ* Stupid LJ. Grrr.

*g* You know my theory on happy endings....


*g* You know my theory on happy endings....

Yes, and you know my issues on fics that involve self-deception and self-imprisonment. *laughs*

My son used to do the same thing. It was basically a nervous stomach. When he was worried, scared, upset, he'd just barf. We took him to Disneyland and he was so excited he threw up beside the car. My husband was all set to go home. But we just took his shirt off, went inside, bought a shirt and were okay for the rest of the day.

If he's not losing weight or become dehydrated, then he might just have the nervous stomach. Inconvenient, but not horribly upsetting.

The kids I used to nanny had sort of the same issue re: the puking thing. Turned out one of them had Acid Reflux and both of them were allergic to gluten and casein. Once we figured that out, put the one on meds and bsically found every all natural-nongluten/casein product we could find, all was well.

There is hope ::hugs::

Also could be the proteins rather than the lactose.

I'd recommend taking him in for allergy testing or to a naturopath who are a little bit more gentle when it comes to testing. Could be something but it could also be nothing. When I was little I could puke on command if I didn't like the food (or just want attention <g> )

I think it's almost our duty as QaF fans to like, convince her to write it.

Thanks for supporting me in my delusion. But I think it's up to the QAF fandom to convince me not to write something that should be consigned to the lower rungs of fanfiction.net.

BTW, where's the serialkiller!B/J fic that you teased me with?

They'd have such a scary MO, doncha think? Go pick up guys together, then kill them during sex.

Because I am a sick, sick girl.

Write this?

*hopeful*

Um, no as I'm busy tossing sanity out the window and writing the noir plot bunny.

Though sex and death go together well. That's what the vampire genre is all about. BTW, like the B/J vampire thing. I'd go to that post, and comment but I'm supposed to be working on the computer, not trawling through the QAF fandom. Brian works as a vampire, because he's already a sexual predator looking for prey in the night. You could say Justin's been in Brian's thrall since the lamp post meeting. There will be blood involved in the vampire fic, right? I am so bloodthirsty. It's one of my notsosekrit kinks.

Does the post mean that the writer's block has gone away?

You are my new best friend.

It would be tragic should a vampire story go by without copious amounts of blood. Copious, I tell you.

Frankly, I can't believe I'm *writing* this.

It always surprises me what breaks my block. For this story, I should be good. If I can stretch it out through the end of Stumble and Fall, it'll be even better.

*happy place*
