i always know how much fun I had by the amount of foot pain

After going through A Very Special Security Check at Midway last night (as V's ID was stolen), we arrived home into a balmy 50 degrees after leaving snow-filled Chicago. Let me just point out, in six years, as soon as Child graduates, I have chosen where I will live. Surely I can manipulate him into going to Northwestern.

(I would recommend A Very Special Security Check. Despite how it sounds, there is a neat box they put V into to blow air at her, then residue testing of her things. I was very fast. Honestly, might be faster than regular security, if you can ignore the terror of someone finding your lighter you accidentally left under your laptop.)

Whee Art!

goss made awesome art inspired by The Tale of the Sea Serpent here. Which is oh my God so gorgeous. She also made me a bookcover version that will actually probably inspire me to update my webpage for the first time in--some long period of time less than a year.

I am tired and my feet hurt and legs hurt, which is proof I had a marvelous time. My thanks to lovely svmadelyn for being an awesome tour guide and everyone at dinner on Saturday who were deeply awesome and I will report on later as it involves dragons.

I am still sleepy. Anyone want to recommend Merlin fic I missed?

my weekend, in very short form

So my weekend was incredibly awesome.

First, there was snow, which I already rhapsodized about, so really, conceptualizing my religious experience with frozen water probably isn't needed again, but it's just. I can't get over it. I know it's ordinary, but I walked a cemetery blanketed in white and wait, let me do this in order.

rec - we're a storm in someone else's teacup

This is only the second time I have ever recced something I haven't finished reading.

We're a Storm In Someone Else's Teacup by paperclipbitch - at this point, even if the ending is a complete letdown (which I don't think is possible), it's completely entranced me. Also, I am glad I waited until it was over, because otherwise, there would have been some serious hysterics. I'm on part 7b. I assume I will be able to breathe again eventually, but for the last few parts, so not been happening. My death by overadrenalinzed rush will be worth it.

Slow build at the beginning that's perfect in retrospect, because when it takes off, Christ, it takes off.
