Everything Looks Beautiful (When You're Young and Pretty): The Mindy Project HS AU, 1/8

Hi, everybody!

So remember when I posted a teensy bit of a co-authored The Mindy Project fic? It's now being posted, huzzah! It's been a long time coming, but blithers, Diaphenia, and I, excellently assisted by Ghostcat, are putting together a high-school AU of TMP's first two seasons. There are tons of pairings and characters, obviously, taken from the show itself, and it's been a blast to write. I'm only responsible for three of the eight chapters, so that's all I'll be posting here, but the whole shebang will be up as a single fic on AO3. I hope you enjoy it!

There's more coming, but as always, I'd love to hear what you think!

traveling again - any advice?

Hi, everybody!

In a couple of months, I'll be on a trip with my family (parents and little brother) - twelve days in Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna, and Prague. [Yes, for those of you counting, that's three vegetarians and an omnivore in Eastern Europe - this will be HILARIOUS, I am sure.] Does anyone have any suggestions for things to do, things to skip, things to eat, etc.? We'll be there at the very end of May through the first week of June. I've been to Vienna before, nearly twenty years ago when I was a wee, poor student, but I don't have specific memories that would be useful. I'd really appreciate any advice you've got to give.

And, just to say thanks in advance, a little story. I share an office with a girl we'll call N. She has a tendency to call out words as she's writing emails and reports, so that I can spell them for her and she can check her work. The other day she said "heifer." As we do not work in agriculture, I said, just to check, "As in, cow?" She asked, "Two F's?" I asked, "Can you give me the sentence you're using it in?" She said, "Yeah. 'You look like a -.'" I said, "Got it. H-E-I-F-E-R." She smiled, sent off her instant message, and settled back with a happy sigh at stirring up shit. And so my work days just fly by.
