Mint, baby. Mint.

I had today off, as I work this weekend.  I used my time wisely for a change!  (Wisely for me, at any rate.)  I woke up not much later than I usually do, and went up to Starbucks to write.  I'm 11k into my het_bigbang fic, and I'm very happy with it.  I'm glad I signed up, because I'm not sure I would have written it otherwise.  It is very plotty, though - so far I've only had one kiss!  I do enjoy dense plotty stories slotted into canon, though, instead of the standard gap-fillers and post-ep stories.  It feels like I'm expanding the universe in some way.  

After I finished my writerings for the day, we went to see Super 8.  WHICH WAS AMAZING.  It reminded me so much of all the movies I love from the 80s - that feeling that you're watching actual kids, y'know, and not weird teenage worldly facsimiles.  It was just a really, really great movie, and for the first time in a long time, it actually made me want to pick up a camera and make a movie. 

I've spent the rest of the evening working on a fanvid for fandomverse, and I actually started before the day it was due, so I'm spending some time on it.  I'm about three-quarters of the way through, and may be able to finish this weekend.  Hopefully it won't be as busy as it was the last weekend I worked; sometimes I'm like, holy crow IT'S THE WEEKEND, why are you all at the library.  GO DO THINGS.

I was going to (finally) watch the Game of Thrones finale (it's okay, I read the book, I know what happens), but I'm kind of tired of looking at my computer screen, so I think I'm going to snuggle into my bed and either read or watch some Battlestar.  The perfect cap to an actual nice day.
