"Midnighter has a sense of humor and he loves to push buttons, so of course he would have Batman underwear because he probably thinks Batman is the most hilarious guy in the DC Universe." -- Steve Orlando

Has anyone not received the nasty "revalidate email" from LJ at this point? Are they on a rampage? I've had them send the revalidation email twice now but it hasn't shown up yet.

Just as I was set to leave some feedback for the Frodo and Elijah fic posted today in the yuletide4frodo comm. Two fics from [personal profile] moit ... one fic each from [profile] mariole and [personal profile] rakshi!

I'll just be over here on DW. Far as I can tell, LJ is useless to me at this point. I wonder if the crosspost will go through. ETA: Nope.

Ugh. I think irritated Harry is best for this post!

1. I want the AO3's download-this-work-as-an-ebook option to be better. Specifically, I want to be able to download an entire series as a single ebook (why could I possibly want that, I wonder); and, more trivially achievable, I want chapter breaks to actually act as chapter breaks where the downloaded format supports navigation-by-chapter. Unfortunately it does not look like getting involved with dev work has got any easier or more sensible since last time I checked.

2. I have made smitten kitchen's apricot-pistachio thing again, this time with vanilla sugar-lemon pastry as previously threatened. I also glugged some rosewater into the pistachio frangipane this time, and will report back on same.

3. I am tentatively not hating the combination of Wunderlist and Regularly for managing my mental stack of shit-that-needs-done. I am still slightly suspicious. I will let you know how things progress.

4. This week I am mostly subsisting off half-arsed shakshuka. Recipe herewith for [personal profile] sebastienne and [personal profile] shortcipher in particular. Read more... )

5. ... there is probably in principle a thing five. In practice I think mostly I am sleepy.

So my uncle is dying. My aunt, a few days ago, asked if I knew my late grandparents' Hebrew names. (This was before she'd said how bad it was; I foolishly assumed this information would be used only in people's prayers for his recovery, but now I know it will likely be used on his headstone.) I knew my grandfather's, but had never been told my grandmother's. My late father would have known, but he and his late sister are obviously not in a position to tell us. I suggested that my grandmother's brother—side note, poor guy is about 85 and when this is over will have buried his parents, his only brother, all three of his sisters, and all three of one of those sister's children; like, what vindictive deity's corn flakes did he pee in as a kid?—might know; there's also a cousin in Chicago and one in Houston who seem like the sort of record keepers who might know or be able to find out such a thing.

No dice. Totally distraught great-uncle doesn't know; Dad's cousin S doesn't know; Grandma's cousin L doesn't know. Mom can't find it in any of Dad's family-tree stuff. L and her husband, as well as my mother-in-law, assure us that lacking a parent's Hebrew name one can substitute Avram (for men) or Sarah (for women), because Abraham and Sarah were the father and mother of us all. But just asking three people and then giving up isn't how we do things here. )

Have you ever had a time when it seemed that you had lost everything you'd ever cared about, or were about to? How did you get through?

How do you hold on to hope when you can't find any objective evidence that things could ever get better? Have things ever gotten better when that seemed impossible?

Serious question. I'm asking for your own truth, not for advice. So if, for instance, your answer is "faith in God," please elaborate on what that means to you. I am personally agnostic/atheist, but that is irrelevant to the question.

There are no wrong answers. Everyone has their own truth.

turlough: Gerard Way onstage at Reading, August 2014 ((mcr) hear you sing the praise)

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a cool work. I think it really captures the live show experience. All the people in front of you, the hands in the air, the figure of the singer in the distance, and the way the stage lights colours everything.

Oooops! It's Tuesday!

Okay, I was just browsing before I made my way in the vague-ish direction of bed when I realised it was bite-size Tuesday. Oooops!

So, for those of you who still have plenty of Tuesday left, feel free to bite-size and know that we're with you in spirit and cheering you along. If like me, Tuesday is in short supply, I give you a bite-size Wednesday!

So what are you going to tackle? What's that thing that needs to be done and can you tackle it? Need some cheering - we're here for you - *\0/**\0/**\0/*

If you feel in need of a 5 minute challenge... hmmm... let me think.... - oh it's the first of the month, how about a smoke alarm check? So if you have smoke alarms in your house (and it's not too late at night where you are) give a quick poke to the test button (I assume they all have those) to check they're working. If that's not your thing can you find five things in the room you're in as you read this that are out of place and fix them (e.g. mugs back to the kitchen, stray clothes back to the appropriate room, bits of paper into the bin ).

Good luck to you all and have a happy December!

I am especially proud to host the December Fishbowl Linkback this month, because the poem itself pulls the reader directly into the story, and into her universe, “The Oracries.” Spread the word and boost the signal and I'll reveal a verse per boost (plus another if you're a new arrival, so please let me know!) With eleven verses, I'm hoping to see this fully posted today, because the tale is warm and strong, just right for short winter days that need a hopeful note.

So I did not make 20,000 words in November: I got to 17,333 words and then went to Chessiecon and wrote nothing for three days, and I had hopes of finishing it yesterday (I've written 3000 words in a day before, easy) but work was frazzling and after work on Mondays I have a total of one hour of free time, so, yeah, that didn't happen. I got up to 18000 and then fell over.

But, you know, could be worse, and I did keep going up to the very last day instead of giving up, which is new for me. Now I need to decide if I want to keep the 666-words-a-day thing going, or give myself a break. I would at least like to push through and get to an ending for the other original story that's almost done.

And then Yuletide.


I had a ton of fun with the December meme last year - or at least my variation of it- but on the other hand it was a ton of writing that didn't involve finishing things already on my lists. So let's try a different variation of it this year: I have made a list of DW posts that I have been wanting to do/have had half-finished, and you all are going to vote on which ones you would most like to see me post, and then I will see how far down the ranked list I get in December.

Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 25

What should I post in December?
