Then suddenly, it was one thirty in the morning.
Ed Wood, how I love thee!
Friday afternoon I got off work early and so I thought I'd drabble that evening, since I'd actually get to start on time. (Being on the west coast is a bitch sometimes.) But then as I was checking my email, a thought came into my head and just wouldn't go away.
That thought was: BEER!
So I called the Boy and when he got of work at 3, we went down to the pub and I had Guinness and fish and chips. We talked about gaming quite a lot and then we got onto Harry Potter. First, our usual discussion of the Slytherin House AU, which is "what if Harry had been sorted into Slytherin and been friends with Draco?" (The Boy calls it "The True Canon".) Then on to ships. I mentioned I was concerned we were going to get some Harry/Hermione and the Boy screeched like Dawn Summers.
"Who would you like to see get together, then?" I asked.
"Well, Ron and Draco could have a fling when they're in college," he said. Bless his heart.
I've been enjoying everyone's posts about Lost City 1, though I haven't really had anything to say in comments. I want to post about it myself, but since I watched both eps together, I can't quite remember what was in which, so I'll just wait until next week.
kestrelsan gave me a whole flock of Stargate story ideas when she knew very well I have no time to write them as I've got challenge stories making me panic until the end of April. Evil! I will file them away for later.
Also, the Boy keeps after me to write a big Stargate/Battlestar Galactica (original series) crossover. I don't remember all the details too well, but in BG they did find this planet that was all pyramids and it turned out that the Lords of Kobol had built them. So his theory is that the Lords of Kobol are the Goa'uld.
"You don't want me to write it," I said. "I'd just slash Daniel and Starbuck and then you'd be unhappy...ooh, how about Sam and Starbuck?" And we stood there, quietly, each in our own little happy place as we contemplated the fiery hotness of Sam/Starbuck.
Wow, that was a fun show. Not a fannish show, but a "tune in every week" show just the same. I die for sarcasm and snark so I'm fathoms deep in love with Jaye already.
On the Subject of Me
I'm a little out of it these days, I think mostly due to hayfever. I feel that I am being less entertaining than usual. Less thought-provoking. Less prolific. Less of everything except mucous, actually. I've got lots of that. And used tissues.
I thought about writing some limericks, but I'm too dozy. So, here are a couple from my website instead.
As an alien sucked Mulder's big toe
They were caught in flagrante delicto
By a robot named Gort,
Whose menace to thwart
They yelled "Klaatu barada nikto"
