+ Rise Against's entire show at Boston's HOB is posted on YouTube. It was supposed to be streaming, but I just get individual songs when I try to access it? IDK. IDC. Rise Against, y'all.

+ Poetry magnets. :DDD I spent a significant portion of my morning contemplating inappropriate-for-work haiku for my office filing cabinet.

+ Chicago was awesome. It was unseasonably warm and sunny (which was good, b/c I've fallen out of the habit of being used to truly cold weather) for late November. The Badgers lost to the 'Cats, but it was an entertaining game. It was good to see the friends who moved to the Wicker Park/Bucktown area in Chicago in August. And W & G & bb!G were good company, except when bb!G decided she'd had enough of the naptime disruptions. Our flight back was delayed last night, and I am consequently delayed in getting into gear for Monday.

+ We went to Andalucia, the new tapas place down the block from House of Blues, for my birthday dinner tonight. Mmm, paella. Good service, decent $. It was a quiet night, because there was no basketball game or concert downtown, and most sports fans were at the stadium watching the Texans, but hopefully business will pick up for them.

+ It's weird to have a birthday without J to cling to - we are rarely apart for our birthday - but it was cheaper for her to go to London for the holiday than to come to Houston. WTF is up with airfares, I ask?

+ I tried to write biting fic, but instead I found a few pages of HS AU that I forgot I'd written. So. Progress, but not on the fic that got the most votes. It's a plus, still. Right? :D?

+ Dentist appt tomorrow at 8am. Then work. Um. Yeah. I'll be cranky, b/c dental appt means no coffee before, and I'll feel guilty if I go through the cleaning and then immediately stain my teeth with coffee. *sigh*

+ Who's read some of the fics posted for [ profile] startrekbigbang and wants to rec me some Kirk/Spock or Kirk/McCoy fic?

+ Tom Conrad is a tease. Is it midnight yet?

+ Black Rebel Motorcycle Club LIVE in my DVD player. Excuse me.

Airfare is the most ridiculous thing ever sometimes. I'm going to California in March, and it was actually cheaper from my friend coming from the UK to fly there than it was going to be for me to fly out of Oklahoma. What is the world coming to?

And yay Chicago! And Rise Against!

Oh man, we just booked our tickets home for Christmas. :((( My mom offered to pay our airfare as our gift, but I can't in good conscience have her pay all of that. It is RIDICULOUS!

+ I approve of all inappropriate poetry.

+ Happy Birthday!

+ I'm glad you had a good time in Chicago & a good bday dinner.

+ I'm sorry you couldn't be with J though. You'll see her in a few weeks, right?

+ All fic writing counts as progress! EXCELLENT!

IT'S TOTALLY YOUR FAULT, Y'KNOW! I was minding my own business, writing teacher!Bden/daddy!Frank (and okay, maybe there was a little misunderstanding that ended up with Bden in Tom's bed) and now all I can think about is Bden/Tom. Thanks, Heather! (Also, I went to sleep before 9 last night & still overslept this morning, wtf? I'll email you ficishness at lunch.)

I had an amazingly awesome dream that involved the stripping of girl jeans and briefs, among other things. I highly approve of this occurrence.

So is unseasonably warm in Chicago like 60 degrees or something? :DDD Cause that's cold.

This fic was pretty good: So Wise We Grow, Kirk/Spock.

LOL, unseasonably warm was a high of ~55 during the day in the sunshine. It got a bit colder once the sun was down.
