I've compiled my responses to the "5 True Things about Fictional Character X" meme from both DW and LJ. I received an interesting array of requests--lots of minor characters, including some fascinating ones who aren't always popular with fandom (I sometimes feel like one of the few people who likes Sally Donovan).

Avatar: Iroh, Mai, Toph )

Bleach: Tousen )

Discworld: Angua, The Luggage )

Firefly: Kaylee, YoSaffBridge )

Sherlock: John, Sally )

Supernatural: Bela )

At the moment, I am lounging in a freshly made bed, eating mullu murruku and having a glass of Reisling (the perfect wine for spicy snacks). I am quite content.

This is one of those weekends where I'm kind of wondering where the hell the time went, but that's not a bad thing. Yesterday, I did a little bit of this and a little bit of that, including lounging around, weeding, doing laundry, running errands and hitting the gym for the first time since my bout of stomach flu.

(Speaking of the gym, I'm now doing chest presses with two 25 lb dumbbells. Woot.)

Last week was a bit hectic, what with the aforementioned stomach bug and being sans computer for a few days. Plus, work is busy as ever--next week will likely be another run of 10 and 11 hour days. Hectic, but not bad, and I finagled a way to work at another campus closer to home on Friday. I did go into work a bit today, and it was actually rather nice. For all that it chews up and spits out my time, I do like my job. And the good news is, they're looking at increasing head count in my department next year, and my team leader and I are actively working on defining and streamlining my job description.

Today was another quiet day. Before heading into work, I mostly worked on fic (spn_summergen) and re-watched the SPN season finale in the e-company of a friend who had not yet watched it. I liked it much better on re-watch, oddly enough. I think that not having the suspense pushing me through the plot line gave me more time to think about things as they happened. Also, it's fun watching in the company of someone who isn't involved in online fandom. What's really funny is that she started out disliking Dean intensely (thought he was a jerk) and is now openly lusting after him. Sam, she wants to feed soup and wrap up in a blankie. Given that said friend is 5'2", this is an amusing mental image.

Fic-wise, I'm feeling rather accomplished. Another section of Winter War will be going up this week, and I'm now at 5,000 words on my spn_summergen story. I'm at 20,000 words on the Bleach Fic That Ate My Brain, at the moment. I haven't worked on it in about a week, but that's only because I need to get the summergen story done and I wanted to get the Winter War chapter done. It's been a while since I've had a story get at me like this, and I hope that what ends up on the page can convey what's dancing around my brain.
