Thing the First

I am in that place where I want sections.

Last night--and this is just weird--I dreamed that--I'm *not kidding*--Rodney and Rod decided to like, start a war or something. Against each other. I remember nothing else but this bit where there was this--tunnel thing?--that connected the two realities and, well, *arguing*. I'm kind of pissed, because for a dream concept, that's damned cool, and I'd like details, dammit.

OTOH, it did make me wonder, in the early hours of the morning, what in the name of God Rodney would *do*. I'm thinking bomb Rod's lab while Rod's doing whatever he does with the Athosians. I mean, that's what I'd do, since I carry residual Rod-rage--okay, that really is funny if you say it out loud. But I am cruel.

But still. A Rodney versus Rod war! How cool is *that*?

Thing the Second

In far less intersting news--and that's saying something--I started playing with zohowriter. The thing is, I write in a very specific way--in Word, Times New Roman 12, regular margin. So writing in zoho is, to say the least, a little disorienting. I got around thirteen hundred words done and then stared at it, because it doesn't feel as much like me as MS Word. I'm actually aware how weird that sounds. But it took the story I was writing in a direction I'm not sure I was actually planning to go. It's like that second in Teacher's Pet where I realized that I could totally go to the dark side and torture an eight year old. It was very wrong. And yet oh so right.

Thing the Third: Waffles

Mr. Waffles somehow managed to leap from his penthouse to the bottom floor of teh cage. I have no idea how this happened, but when I finally got up, I see rabbits in motion--and in retrospect, they'd been fighting for a while by then--with Waffles leaping bravely to the floor level and cowering in a corner. I grabbed him up and held him in my lap while he shook and *shook* and checked him over for injury--but seriously. It was really freaky. Waffles allows cuddling but does not welcome it. This? Was welcoming it.

Anyway, just fed them their nightly salad and trying to mix in more rabbit food for the additional vitamins into their diet. I get they need a natural as possible diet, but reading the vitamin content on the last bag I picked up for emergencies is encouraging me to supplement with some of it. Just to be sure.

Thing the Fourth

You've got to be kidding. My life isn't that interesting.

A Rodney versus Rod war! How cool is *that*?

With both Johns looking on, rolling their eyes and quietly conspiring to make sure no permanent damage is done to either of their boyfriends? *g*

At first, yeah. Then Rod does something adn Rodney's all heartbroken in the lounge because the bastard took his favorite t-shirt! This is war, John thinks grimly, and gathers him up and puts him to bed and goes to work.

And sure, Mensa!John is all openly *brilliant*, whatever, John will think meanly, but who's done twenty years of advanced tactical analysis?

And so he starts to plot.

It can only escalate from there. Interdimensional war. The Wraith will run and hide. It is very very dramatic.

Explain this... zohowriter.

its this online program for writing and sharing text files. Basically, a chick I'm working with on a fic writes in the document area, which is all set with very similar to Word controls, and then saves it online. So when I want to see what she's done, or when she tells me, I go look at it and see what she's added. Every time you save it maeks a new version, you can compare versions and it's color coded! Frankly, it kicks serious ass. Real-time collaboration would be fairly easy with this, with both of you instantly able to see additions once it's saved. It's fairly intuitive, which I value a lot, and does not require me to learn a new computer langauge.

In retrospect, I should have put in a link.


hm... maybe Mr. Waffles is actually Superman reincarnated as a rabbit and maybe this was him finding out he could fly. I can see how that could be traumatic. Poor SuperRabbit. Make sure to check for any glowing green bits that might be hidden in all the greenery of the salad.

Huh. That actually would not surprise me. *pondering*

I remember nothing else but this bit where there was this--tunnel thing?--that connected the two realities and, well, *arguing*.

NOOOOO!!! That just reminds me of the matter and anti-matter guys at each other's throats in the tunnel between dimensions for all eternity! And you know Rodney probably hates that Trek episode, because the physics is so even more unbelievably wrong than usual. Eek!

Until you mentioned that I'd forgotten that ep. Or maybe I'm only remembering cause you mentioned, but--huh. *cool*

Da da da DAH da da DAH da... < / trek action music >

Oooh. A *mystery*. You should dream a sequel. I'm kind of curious now m'self.

...can I beg you to write this? 'cos I think I will. OMGPLEASE. *PAWS AT YOU PERSUASIVELY*

I don't even know how it would go! It was just like RODNEY VERSUS ROD WAR! DEATHMATCH! Though granted, funny.

Aww. I'm actually pouty there isn't a Thing the Fourth. *pouts*

Rod vs. Rodney war sounds AWESOME. *flails* I'd be cheering for both of them, maybe with special attention to Rodney. *considers* I think Rod would win the battle but Rodney would ultimately win the war. IWANTTOSEEITSOBAD!

In far less intersting news--and that's saying something--I started playing with zohowriter.

Logging in as a demo user is so creepy, it's kind of awesome. There are resumes, school projects, promotional and sales-type things for various stores, letters, so-bad-it's-good fiction... all that's missing is porn.
