Fan Fiction and Personal Ramblings



Ramblings and Pictures

This has been a cool week for August, even some pretty overcast days with heavy drizzle. It’s supposed to be hot next week though, so we will enjoy it this week. Here are some pictures at the resort where I stayed and why I found it so peaceful.

Arrival day it was sunny

Yum….cookies and cream ice cream drink (had Godiva Chocolate liquor in it)
Cloudy skies
Under the umbrella

We had a wonderful time but sad it is over of course. Vacations never last long enough

Now for the news you probably want

I have nothing written and scheduled at this point for the rest of August but I will see what I can do. No promises. That’s tomorrow, Wednesday, Friday, and Monday. I might be able to get three of those done but I am uninspired for tomorrow.

September’s theme: Academy Fics

October’s theme: Spooky

November’s theme: Harvest, Fall, Thankful

December’s theme” Christmas (not sure yet if it will be an every day thing or MWF like normal months)

Coming Up for April 2021

So I think what I’m going to do for April with the MWF flashes that begin next week is connect the flashes into a Starfleet Academy/Riverside Fic. So the story will post April 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 21, 23. 26, 28, and 30. They may not post at any certain time of the day if I don’t get the chapters done ahead of time, but for now that’s my goal.

In the meantime, here are some recent personal pictures.

Sign of the times, all equipment at the park has been roped off as unusable during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Very sad, I thought.

Ramblings of February 15, 2020

Hello my friends

Here are some flowers for you from our work campus

And here is the cheesecake we bought for last night from the store.

Cute right? The worst tasting cheesecake I’ve ever had. Worst. I love cheesecake. This was not it. I even had to check to make sure it wasn’t vegan. It was not. M thought it tasted like meat. Just awful.

Today my friend is throwing a February Friendsgiving. Turkey is on the menu as well as M’s tiramisu. Also wine. Naturally that.

The good news is I have finished all my flashes and scheduled them through April now. Including a birthday flash for Kris.

So now I can thoroughly immerse myself in the T’hy’la Bang story. Wish I could use the title here but I guess I’m not allowed to reveal any details or whatever. My first check-in is the end of this month and it says something about an “outline”. I do not outline. Ever. Nope. Won’t be this time either. So, yeah, we’ll see how THAT goes.

We are officially back in a drought as we have had a pretty dry winter. I knew it was coming. So that’s about it for now.

Talk soon!

Decorations Sister’s

Decorations (Mine-Home)

I got a request from J who missed my usual decoration pictures I have posted in the past. So…here are some pictures, post 1. I will do other posts.

It was the day after Thanksgiving and all through the house…elves. My sister bought me a little Elf tree this year, so I decided to do all elf decorations. Yes, I am a dork. Anyway this is much much much smaller tan the usual tree, but it was cute!

Ignore any mess you see!

Elf Tree
Elf Tree With Elves
Elves (two on the right are boyfriends so their arms are linked! ha ha)
More Elves
Elf Stuff plus Home sign and lights (Home sign is cool you change the “O” depending on the season, so after Christmas, it’s a snowflake, February a heart, etc)
Close Up
Deer Lights and Cardinal Lights
The elves get a friend!

The New Place

First day at the new office and there’s no cell service inside the building. If I get cell service at all, I have to go outside, so for emails and texts, that’s my choice. And apparently not all of them come through. Grrr. They are supposed to eventually fix but I am not holding my breath.

Anyway, desk is tiny. And everything is a walk but I did get all my FitBit steps for the day quite early. So…

View from my desk, nice to have a window
My new desk

Pretty Day
Pumpkins make everything better!

Ramblings, September 01, 2019

We had a smashing time at the Hollywood Bowl and John Williams appeared himself. A spry 87 year old.

Of course probably his most famous music is Star Wars (even though he also wrote ET, Jaws, and Raiders of the Lost Ark among many others), and so naturally all the Star Wars Geeks were there with their light sabers.

A fun time was had by all. And we may have gotten a little smashed. I have a big time hangover.

As you know I went a little nuts and started Cadet Ashayam on AO3. Hope to get another chapter up this coming week as well as Didn’t We Almost Have it All, The Space in My Bed, and we will see what else.

It’s hot here but at least we aren’t facing a hurricane. My friend J keeps sending me stuff on Earthquakes, the latest one telling me that a previously thought dormant faultline under LA is not so dormant! Good times. It’s all kind of fascinating really. There’s so much we don’t know about this planet.

Still working on getting the garage door fixed. It’s a long and developing project/thing. Hopefully by the end of September we will have a lovely new garage door! Sheesh.

I still have flashes and OMS etc to write too but with my head pounding today who knows. We also invited the cousin over for shrimp kabobs later.

Anyhow, that’s it in my world right now. Hope yours is stable, cool and healthy

Even During Storms…

We are pretty. Here are some shots of the lightening last night. These were in Santa Barbara.

Because everything is dramatic here!
