1. Listening to the church across the street chime the hour.

2. A cloud-veiled moon worthy of Beacon Hills, hopefully without the ominous portents.

3. Baklava. Mmmmmmm Baklavaaaaaaaaaa.

4. I ran further this morning than I ran on Sunday in the same time, and on Sunday I had run further than I ran on Friday in the same time. \o/

5. ...While listening to the dudes from my favorite college football blog deconstruct the fairly terrible performance of my football team in their most recent game.

1. I went and ran by the Lake this morning--my new stretch of lakeshore, adjacent to my new part of the city. It's hillier than my old Lake route, but also intermittently shady, which was lovely today.

2. Richard Armitage Story Time! I listened to a good hour of Richard Armitage reading (sadly, only an abridged edition of) Georgette Heyer's Sylvester. Mmmmmm Richard Armitage in my ears. ♥

3. Quality time with [personal profile] renenet! :D

4. I cracked and started reading [archiveofourown.org profile] KouriArashi's ongoing Derek/Stiles mates WIP, Divided We Stand. There's already 20 chapters and over 105,000 words, and although it's a super slow build it has definitely already gone some satisfying places in the part I've read, so I am not (yet) regretting the WIP-ness. Although I also haven't gotten to the end of Chapter 20 yet, so that could change.

5. [archiveofourown.org profile] aethel made podfic of my Derek/Stiles story "Dream a Little Bigger (Darling)"! Candy-sweet fluff for your ears. ETA: I definitely recommend the with-music version. Because I totally cracked up at the music. ♥

I did good things a week ago, and it comes a little easier tonight, which is surely a good thing all by itself, but here are some other good things about today:

1. Reading Blood of Tyrants. OH MY GOD I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BOOK. Especially people calling each other by their first names, OH MY GOD I LOVE THEM THE MOST. I have sixty pages to go DON'T SPOIL THE ENDING IN THE COMMENTS. YET.

2. Snyder's Butter Snap pretzels WHY HAVE I NOT BEEN EATING THESE ALL MY LIFE.

3. Singing along with If I Had a Rocket Launcher. Whatever's going wrong in your life, singing the line If I had a rocket launcher, some son of a bitch would die cannot help but be a satisfying answer, right?

4. Helping a kid who couldn't tell me his address, just the street he lived on and a nearby store, figure out the nearest library where he could get some Geronimo Stilton.

5. Realizing that, hell yes, the time has come: my niece is old enough for me to give her Baby Island and Misty of Chincoteague for her birthday!


Oh, and a generally good and useful thing that I just realized maybe everyone doesn't already know about: http://pinboard.in/popular/fandom is a great source for finding new fic in popular-ish fandoms--it's where I find pretty much all the Welcome to Night Vale fic I read, and obviously there's also a strong Teen Wolf presence, but anything that gets bookmarked by a handful of pinboard users in fandom will pop up there, so there's an array of fandoms represented. It updates once a day, which makes it a pleasant relief from the pace of tumblr and twitter. (Except that tag cloud to the right which seems to have no relation to the bookmarks on the page. I don't know when that thing updates.)

Because I need to remember to focus on them, or at least not to focus on the other. In no particular order:

1. The washing machine (which was not working last night, as I discovered after I poured in the detergent) got fixed while I was at work! My clothes are in the dryer now and soon I will have my favorite work outfit all ready for wearing tomorrow.

2. A coworker gave me a ride to and from work, so I didn't have to wait for the bus in the godawful heat or play air-conditioning roulette once I got one. Plus, spotted awesome purple lightning crossing the sky on the way home!

3. Celery. Mmmm, celery.

4. Did not spend most of the day anxiously refreshing Facebook for information about my teenaged cousin, who got hit by a car Sunday night and spend most of yesterday in surgery. Word is that she had a good night last night. She's at a really excellent hospital. Have now mostly managed to stop feeling weird and bad for being unable to promise family members I'll pray for her.

5. Just betaed fic for someone I am very glad to be sharing another fandom with! ♥
