A New Day  
First of all, thanks to everyone for their well wishes and internet hugs.  Am in much better spirits today; like I was telling nhpw, sometimes you just need a guilt-free evening having, IDK, fun.  I've been so busy trying to finish up my screenplay that even when I did take breaks, I felt bad about it - so it was nice to just relax and not worry.

Wednesdays I work an evening shift, so I got to sleep in this morning (a whole extra half hour!).  Checked my LJs and my Tumbls.  Made oat and carrot pancakes, which were scrumptious.  Took a lovely lava-hot shower by ~candlelight, which is always wonderful.  (The fact that the lightbulb had burned out and I was too lazy to replace it is immaterial.)  Now I am chilling on my computer for another hour or so before I finally get around to finally depositing my federal refund check, because I am lazy and it's been sitting on my counter for like almost three weeks.

Then I shall go to work, and mayhap write some fic.  I have: the penultimate chapter of Alma Mater I need to finish, which has been languishing for about two months now; a half-finished tiny thing where everyone ends up wearing Garibaldi's hat that isn't that good, but whatev; that Marianne/Snape thing I was mulling but I think I need to reread Sense and Sensibility first; maybe some Alan/Quorra fluffiness?  (Vanilla het?  In my Tron fandom?  GTFO!)  We'll see.  I might just end up reading serial killer articles on Wikipedia, like I did yesterday.

And now, one of my favorite memes, which I've done several times over the years.  Print screen your desktop.  Change nothing.  No fair cleaning things up or renaming your embarrassing folders.  Paste into paint and upload.  Click to embiggen.

First order of business upon getting home this evening: geekifying the compy even more than it already is: a feat I hadn't previously realized was possible. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Thank you!!

I take great pleasure in the fact that my external hard drive is named Valkyrie, and I have the actual Valkyrie insignia for it. To geek is to love.

I particularly liked how your "my docs" folder is called "Laura's Folder" and has its little corners cut off.
Shannon: drh evil laughkungfuwaynewho on April 20th, 2011 04:13 pm (UTC)
LOL that's my sister Laura's folder, where she saves things pending transfer to her own computer, which is not hooked up to the internet. NOT AS GEEKY AS YOU THOUGHT, EH.

Awwww, that's nowhere near as much fun. :( :( :( ...;)

(Vanilla het? In my Tron fandom? GTFO!)

LOL.

And that is exactly why you need to write it. Because everyone will be like... ... *blink blink* ... THIS PERSON IS FULL OF NORMAL. You will be like a fascinating new being in the universe, proposing that these guys are not all having kinky sex with each other and do, in fact, have normal relationships with women. (Or each other, without the kinky. Whatev.)

BUT FIRST YOU HAVE TO GET YOURSELF A TRON ICON.

Because everyone will be like... ... *blink blink* ... THIS PERSON IS FULL OF NORMAL.

Everyone, the three people who read my journal who are into Tron, whichever. Unless you want to direct me to the appropriate comm at which to post?

UNLESS, vanilla het, by its very nature compared to the rest of Tron fandom, ends up actually being kinky? If kink and slash are normal, does that make fluffy het, by contrast, subversive?

(LOL, no.)

I HAVE TRON CAPS AT HOME I JUST HAVEN'T MADE ONE YET BUT I WILL. OH, I WILL.
nhpw: alan bradleynhpw on April 20th, 2011 07:59 pm (UTC)
Duuuude... deep thoughts are deep.

I'm a member of 3 Tron comms - you'd probably be looking for all_tron_fic for this story. If you ever get the Alan/Kevin angsty bits, tron_slash would also work.

Excellent. *rubs hands together*
Ms Dref: TNG - wesley hatingdref22 on April 20th, 2011 08:50 pm (UTC)
I remember the times when my icons were all Star Trek related! :D I had an awesome LCARS screensaver. Good times. :P
Shannon: sttos spockkungfuwaynewho on April 20th, 2011 09:32 pm (UTC)
LCARS? Do tell more. :D

YOU SHOULD WRITE MORE MIRANDA FIC.

Your desktop is so neat and uncluttered! Mine's a mess, lol.
Shannon: miranda gary pillowkungfuwaynewho on April 20th, 2011 09:41 pm (UTC)
PROMPT ME!

I'm actually turning the two fics I have written into a spec script, so Im'ma make you read it at some point, just to make sure it "feels" like an episode. Okay? Okay. :D
a universal sigh: Miranda - Miranda & Stevie & Gary - hanaushika on April 21st, 2011 05:13 am (UTC)
UMMM GARY AND MIRANDA HAVE AN EPIC MAKE-OUT SESSION. IDK, MY PROMPTS SUCK. LOL

OKAY!! I'M DOWN WITH THAT!!
Shannon: miranda gary pillowkungfuwaynewho on April 22nd, 2011 07:39 pm (UTC)
JSYK, I'm still trying to figure out how to make this a story.
a universal sigh: Miranda - Miranda & Stevie & Gary - hanaushika on April 23rd, 2011 07:43 am (UTC)
You're amazing! If you can I'll forever be in awe.
Shannon: bicycle dadkungfuwaynewho on April 20th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC)
ALSO, it killed me to cap my desktop with those, like, six loose files. I usually have everything in folders, but I was lazy last night and saved everything to the desktop. So usually it's even neater than that - and only because I like for as little of my desktop to be covered as possible.
a universal sigh: Marina & the Diamonds - oh nonaushika on April 21st, 2011 05:14 am (UTC)
WOWWWW. I WISH I COULD BE LIKE YOU. LOL I'M ABOUT TO CAP MY DESKTOP BECAUSE I HAVE NO SHAME. IT WILL MAKE YOUR HEAD EXPLODE.

My little geek heart went all sorts of crazy over the ST desktop icons! *luvs*

I think you should write the vanilla het for Tron. ;)
Shannon: tng big goodbyekungfuwaynewho on April 20th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC)
Already written five pages, man. :)))))
mac_beth13: Delenn1mac_beth13 on April 20th, 2011 10:52 pm (UTC)
Sweetness! :D

Glad you're feeling better! Your desktop is so fancy and awesome and clean. I end up saving a ton of shit to my desktop so its sort of a mess. And also not as badass as yours!
