all mad

Holy shit.

I just came out to my mother. And told her I've been seeing a woman.

I don't really know what else to say about that. o.o

(It went really well, just for the record.)

Yuletide recs

In between helping my mom get the turkey stuffed and in the oven for our belated Christmas dinner (the power went out yesterday afternoon, and stayed out long enough to make roasting a turkey impractical), I've been browsing the Yuletide archive, like you do. So, have a few recs!

Dear Yuletide Author

First of all, I'm sorry I didn't post this before - time just sort of got away from me.

That said, I am super easy. All of my requests were for fandoms and characters that I'd just be thrilled to see any fic for. If you can make the requested pairing work, great! If not, gen will make me wildly happy as well.

Snowpocalypse Now

I'm home early from work, and it's looking like I am going exactly nowhere this weekend, because DC is in the early stages of getting pasted right across the mouth by a massive snowstorm. I know those of us in DC are wimps about snow in general, but 20-30 inches in one storm is a problem for just about anybody, right?

But my hatches are well and truly battened - I've got cigarettes and the all-important caffeine supplies to last me a couple-three days so that I don't have to go out in the yuck (some people may worry about milk and bread; I make sure my vices are well-supplied). I'm hoping the power stays on, so I can lay on the couch and write on my netbook, but I've got candles and a notebook if it comes to that. And I just finished one project and I'm chomping at the bit to start the next one, so I have plenty of inspiration to carry me through.

How's everyone else's weekend looking?

You know what's even easier than listening to "It's great, don't change anything" crits of a story?

Listening to the ones that say "It's perfect with these tiny changes".
