somewhere over the weekend
quintessential, wear you like a jewel, winter soldier, bucky barnes
Hi, everybody!

I am going to sign up for Yuletide this weekend, without fail, this I vow. I just need to figure out what I want and what I could actually write for someone else. A few of the letters I've seen have been particularly inspiring, so I think I already have a few treats lined up - we'll see if I actually convert that desire into words on a screen.

I'm thisclose to finishing up a project that's been many, many moons in the making, and I am really looking forward to having it off my plate.

Confession time: it's been a while since I watched Political Animals, but I do have vivid memories of one TJ Hammond, as played by wide-eyed beauty boy Sebastian Stan, and I remember being so hurt for him when his lover refused to be with him publicly. AND THEN. Then, I see the lover in a soup commercial, in a relationship with another man, both fathers to a little boy, and I got all worked up, like, "You don't get to have this! You weren't willing to acknowledge TJ!" Um, so I may have been weirdly emotional for the last few weeks.

Part of that might have been due to my birthday. Thank you to everyone who reached out to wish me a lovely day! (I hope you all enjoy my best gift, courtesy of the remarkable [personal profile] musesfool.) Some of it is due to work stuff, where things keep changing and I'm getting tired of people who make demands without thinking about what those changes will mean in practical terms. And some of it is due to my apartment and the property managers who are supposed to be maintaining the building. Oh, and some of it is because of my upcoming trip to India, which I am completely unprepared for.

Plus, half my team at work is sick, and so I'm spending this weekend not budging from the couch. I will sign up for Yuletide, I will read some fic, and I will write some of my own. Yes. And I will watch more of Cosmos, which I have out from the library. Man, the evolution of the eye was super cool!

What are you all up to?

Oh, man, that commercial is positively enraging! And I'm sorry you're sick! The temperature here has been fluctuating between 40s and 70s, which is confusing everyone and no one knows just how to dress for the day. So far, my policy of holing up in my apartment all by myself has kept me from succumbing to illness, but my new office (we moved Thursday evening and I'm still sharing with the same teammate) is tighter quarters than the old one, and in a more heavily traveled corridor, so who knows how long my little quarantine will stay effective.

Aw, it's okay - I'm mostly well now. We have a ton of idiots at my work who don't know how to cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze, as well as utterly useless cleaning people.

So i wash my hands a *lot*.

PA was amazing, and Sebastian Stan is freakin' adorable and gorgeous and....*flails*


Hey, have you seen Kings? SS being lovely and amazing and emoting all over the damn place.

It's not so much that people at my office don't know to cover their mouths - it's more that I'm on the subway for a minimum of 90 minutes each day, crammed in with people who are in various stages of illness and recovery, and then in meetings with people who are fighting off colds. It's basically a powder keg, you know?

Glad you're mostly better!

I started watching 'Kings' - it was so damn evil and dark, it made me kind of cringe. I wasn't quite as *aware* of SS then, yet, and didn't see it through.

I might try again.


It's operatic, and definitely not flawless, but given your awareness of SS, I'd say it's a must-watch. You can stream the whole thing from the NBC site (I put a link in my actual Yuletide letter). Go forth, and revel in Jack!

I'm convinced. :)
