children of dune - leto 1

(no subject)

Leaving the greater Gulf area tomorrow (early, God, 8:30 AM flight from Corpus) and I feel this is a good time to share a few key things I've learned during my stay that may or may not contradict what I said a few days ago.

1.) You can in fact sunburn without ever actaully being in the sun. We're not talking about this. It hurts. WTF TEXAS? DO YOU LIKE SEEING ME CRINGE?

2.) Your Child will still think bleached hair is the bomb--he said it, I swear--and you may or may not lose the will to live when he gets a yellow swim shirt to coordinate with his red sunburn and horrific blond-with-copper-orange-highlighted hair. He's bright. He is impossible to lose. Even when you may be trying to disassociate yourself in public places.

3.) If you see me at VVC and wonder why I'm talking to myself, that's because I am at a key plot point in Rebootfic that is now 74K--yeah, I lied. Apparently the gulf of mexico is a drug for writing long, involved space battle sequences and flashbacks to Spock's childhood. Also, I've been on a steady diet of One Less Reason and Hinder, so there'a a better than average chance I will answer questions with lyrics and recently, I realized I do know all the words to Jesse McCartney's Thought You Should Know. I'm not even ashamed anymore. I've been performing on the porch every day.

4.) Android phone apps you can't live without--Tetris, Pairings, Google Maps (GPS!) and Amazon. You know how it is. You're out and realize you need to buy a book. Lookie there! You can do it from your phone! AND SO EASY. WHY IS IT SO EASY?

...I cannot believe I am at the beach adn I have to get up at six to get to the airport. God.
