✩ Besides all the Slam Dunk, I've been watching lots of South Park. Best DVD investment ever. And AWESOM-O is probably #2 in the Top Five Butterpoofs Episodes Of All Time. (#1 has to be The Death of Eric Cartman.) Dear god, how I love these two.

✩ I've only been off work five days and already I'm afraid I've forgotten how to do my job. Or even where I work. I've had the most glorious introvert downtime -- hardly any human interaction and lots and lots of whipping cream.

✩ We've also been watching a lot of The Sarah Jane Adventures which continue to be completely charming and so much fun. We're about 1/3 through series 3 right now. Sarah Jane is, as everyone knows, about the most awesome person in the universe. Rani and Luke are lovely and fun. Haresh and Gita are beyond cute and I really, really want to get myself into the middle of that. But it's Clyde who completely steals each and every show. I ♥ him. In a non-creepy way. Really.

✩ About Doctor Who I shall only say that it was even more cheese-tastic than usual but I still enjoyed it and am looking forward very much to New Years. Even though we will be away so I won't see it until later.

✩ I also started to re-watch Ace wo Nerae, the live-action. Ryuzaki Reika remains my tennis girlfriend until the end of time. The first time I watched through this, I loved it so hard for itself but it also made me think so much -- actually, pace around my apartment and mutter to myself -- about Tezuka and Ryoma. I'm hoping it will spark more thoughts like that this time as well. I haven't really visited those two in a while. But I don't want to be done with them.

✩ I've been writing a lot this month. A lot for me, that is. I've even got a few things stockpiled to post in January. I think being so productive has really helped me get through December, which is typically a bad month for me, due to the short and overcast days and the schedule disruption of the holidays. I'm typically a slow writer who can't stop editing every word as I type it. I'm experimenting with a system of short sprints -- usually ten minutes -- where I just write as fast as I can without editing and then go back and edit that short section before doing the next sprint. It's worked pretty well so far, though I've only used it for crack fic yet.

✩ Fandom is so awesome and fun. I love you guys. Never change. ♥

well, if it helps the uncreepiness, the guy who plays Clyde is really old. like, it's really creepy for him to be hanging around with Luke and Rani.

it also made me think so much -- actually, pace around my apartment and mutter to myself -- about Tezuka and Ryoma. I'm hoping it will spark more thoughts like that this time as well. I haven't really visited those two in a while. But I don't want to be done with them.


Hee! Now I'll be thinking of that when I watch.

♥ indeed, my friend.

butters is perhaps the only reason why I still watch SP.

I realized today I have only 7 days of my isolation vacation left. and I need to re-watch DrWho as I wasn't sure what I thought of the new episode. Hm.

Have actually written a fair amount of drell myself the last few weeks. Of course I wait for your postings because you don't have the issue of tense I seem to have developed and your stories are actually good!

we love you, Hal. <3 don't ever change.

I have three days back at work, then four off again. Next year, I'm going to take a couple of extra days. Or just cryogenically freeze myself until spring.

Some stories are harder to shift into past tense, I find. I'm waiting to see what will happen with my hp_kinkfest story. If I ever pick a pairing.

<3 to you too! Nobody ever really changes, do they?

I want to be Sarah Jane Smith when I grow up.

Oh, so do I. Every time I watch, I find myself wondering if I should get my hair cut like her and get all the same clothes, etc, in case that would make me 1/10 as awesome as she is.

I can't make myself to watch any real people show (True Blood S2 is still waiting...), but your Lady Gaga singing!Cartman post made me look for the entire SP series online. After several weeks of excited waiting, it finished yesterday (1-12) so I intend to watch them asap. The last episode I have the is vampire!Butters, I think, from which I had also watched a excerpt.

Short sprints... A friend posted recently on how she organized herself in 45-minute to longer blocks with a stopwatch and breaks inbetween, but I guess every style of writer needs their own tempo, and it might change depending on the mood, the day, the energies... But it should be trainable, like everything else. Just... nothing like having a deadline to become really productive. I wonder if there is a way around that impediment, that vital necessity called deadline to perform at MAX.
