children of dune - leto 1

a bit here, a bit there, everywhere, everywhere

Usually, I nap during lunch these days, what with insomnia and freakiness about sleeping pills, but today, for the first time this month, coffee rescued me. Stupid coffee. I was drifting off during discussion of timeliness in completeing childrens' Medicaid applications.

Honestly, my job is a lot more interesting than it sounds usually, but there is really no way to make *this* part interesting. No one can make time schedules interesting.

emrinalexander has another part of Josiah up, number six, cuteness. And also? Earnest. You don't watn to miss that, do you?

Places

svmadelyn is running a poll on a Fannish Slumber Party, with nail-painting and things. And you know. Fans.

burnitbackwards talks about Brian Kinney and the Psychology of Abuse. Spoilered at least through ep six, so if you're desperately clinging to spoiler virginity, yes, this one will count against you should you read. But really good. And the really spoilery things are blacked for highlighting.

I have firmly decided to lose my link to Sandstorm's site until after episode six airs. I am *so* spoiled until then. I have vague spoilers for the arcs of the season, but unless I start to panic, I'm going to *really* try and not--look.

Anymore.

I think.

Try really, really hard.

Unless burnitbackwards keeps being so darn interesting.

pre-wedding, pre-exchange duldrums

Because my sister's wedding is tomorrow and it's stressing. And because I love my DVDs and will miss them, as I have to exchange them, since three of the episodes arne't working at all. That I've found so far. So back they go, and hopefully, the new one will work all the way.

After many tries, however, I got to play the one I love best. I mean, the one I nearly wore the tape out watching over and over, because it just clicked.

You saw this coming, right?

Josiah, part seven by emrinalexander. I am obsessed with this story. I want to curl up with it beside a fire somewhere and drink really good coffee and just bathe in it.

And for those poor, unfortunate souls who haven't read it....

It's kidfic. You know, the scariest of the scary in the wrong hands, but luckily, these aren't scary hands. Josiah is cute and precocious, but not annoyingly cute and precocious, and Lex and Clark have *issues* and they're doing hysterical things with stepping around them until they suddenly feel the need to step right *into* them. And it's cute. And it's romantic. And it's funny as hell, and bittersweet, and I'm just thrilled to see where she's going with this.

*sighs blissfully*

Happy place. Until my DVDs go away and my sister marries, but first, the nightmare of getting into that dress.

*shivers*

Just, you know, on my death certificate? If it says death by asphyxiation in purple gauze, I'm so coming back to haunt her.
