NoBloMo14: Back on the horse...an exercise of futility....


I missed yesterday completely, but that's why it's Not blog-posting month, right? I get to miss a day here or there guilt-free as long as I get back to it. Right? Right?

I had no solid thought today other than this:

Hot Yoga is the sea urchin of exercises. Whoever thought yoga should be more steam-inducing must have been truly desperate...

...to make his or her mark in modern exercise. Asshat.

Harry Potter Bot Fic

You guys. Can we please give a [community profile] firewhiskeyfic award to the bot that wrote a fanfic chapter for Harry Potter?

I'm having a hard time not dying of laughter at work. OMG.

Update

I went to the dermatologist today, for my follow-up appointment.

It turns out that the suspicious mole I had removed with such urgency was a “melanoma in situ”, the beginning stage of malignant melanoma. The next stage is to remove the scar left by the removal of the mole, and biopsy that, just to be sure it’s all gone.

And the moral of this story is: if you have a dodgy looking mole (if it’s changing shape, or colour, spreading or generally not looking like it used to) take it to a doctor and ask for a referral to a dermatologist.

In other news, I have new specs. Cost an arm and a leg they did, as my specs always do. But for the moment I can see properly.

Advent Drabbles - Dec 7 & 8, Harry Potter, George/Viktor, Matchmaking & Stilted Conversation

Apologies for the inconsisten drabble updates - RL is terribily busy (Christmas market appointments! Presents! Office Christmas party! Long hours because my clients are acting crazy!) but I'm hoping that will change by the end of the week, because Friday at 4pm my Christmas holiday is starting. I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT HAVING TWO WEEKS OFF, GUYS! First two weeks in a row since I started working again.

Anyway, let's continue with the Advent Drabbles. Snarry will follow tomorrow, I promise.

Here's something

So I've done a thing and it's all [personal profile] lq_traintracks' and [personal profile] draycevixen's faults.

Ever since the ~events of 2015, I've never got back to my previous writing levels of 300 to 350K a year, so I'm hoping this community will allow me to get some words done!

NoBloMo12: Brass tacks....


I have notes, post-its, and emails to myself everywhere. I can come off as a real Grinch this time of year because there's so much to do and not enough time to do it. Which means if there's something I don't like about the season, I loathe wasting time on it, and I have a hard time hiding the feeling.

You can chalk up office parties and charitable shopping for impossible items as two of them.

Don't get me wrong on either point - I love the people I earn with, but when I'm in a room with 20 people I see more than the SO on a daily basis, and 80 people I see 4 times a year, I just want out of the room.

And I love giving. If the whole season could just be about me giving gifts to everyone, it would be perfect. But the people around me like to take on giving challenges like "buy coats for 6 - 8 year-olds and underwear for Lithuanian goat-herders with extra hairy butts", and I'm left stumped. No frame of reference whatsoever. Some people love shopping challenges, and some just want to throw money at the problem. But guess who gets the stink-eye when you offer money - above average money - to the shopper? Pbbthhhp!

Anyway, this post is way overdue and totally backdated. I hope you're all feeling less like Scrooge than l am this week!

love, lore

P.s. - no offense meant to Lithuanian goat-herders.
