1. Your main fandom of the year?

I started to say I didn't know, but actually, possibly A Song of Ice and Fire, which I didn't think I liked when I first read it a few years ago, except then I reread it, and then I started reading analyses and theories from around the fandom, and now somehow I am on my fifth reread? And I have all these half-written posts about my own theories and analysis??? And I feel strongly enough about the books to talk shit about the show at every opportunity, even as I grudgingly admit that I probably wouldn't have read them if it weren't for the show?????? QUESTION MARKS??????????????

The rest is under the cut. )
sohotrightnow: ([buffy] like some soldier undaunted)
OK, so, in the midst of the horror that is the world right now, here are some things that have not been completely awful in the time that I was forgetting to post:

  1. My sister's wedding in May was lovely! Mannnnn we couldn't believe how lucky we got. It had been raining for most of the prior couple of weeks, and was raining when we arrived at the venue a few hours prior to the ceremony to set up, and then as we were getting hair and makeup done in a room overlooking the bay, we realized it had stopped raining, and by the time the ceremony took place it was bright and sunny and dry. Not twenty-four hours later it was raining again. It was un-friggin'-believable. And Rita was gorgeous, and everyone loved my toast at the rehearsal dinner, and it was just an A++++ event in general.

  2. Comic Con! I haven't been in a few years, but Mom, Doug and I managed to get passes for Thursday and Sunday this year. Mom had booked a hotel a little further out, because she wanted something right on a beach for Friday and Saturday, but when we mentioned we were going while chatting with relatives at the rehearsal dinner, one of Dad's sisters and her husband insisted that we use their condo, which is a few blocks from the convention center and ridiculously swanky. One of their kids also lives in the city, near the Naval base, so we had dinner with him and his family, which was also nice, and I got to see friends I haven't seen in way too long, and I spent a ton of money and had a total blast.

  3. In August we went to NYC for a few days, because I'd managed to get Hamilton tickets eight months prior for my Dad's birthday! We did some museums and had pizza and bagels and the show is so damn good, holy shit. Put it this way: the highest praise I generally hear my father give entertainment is "I thought it was pretty good." On very rare occasions -- like, I can count on both hands the number of times I've heard it, with fingers left over -- he might go as far as "I thought it was excellent." At dinner after the show, he said "That was one of the best plays I've ever seen." Mom and I gaped at each other while he went back to eating because we couldn't believe how emotional he was getting.

  4. Related to #1, RITA IS PREGNANT AHHHHHHHHHHH. She's closing in on 20 weeks now, I think? Her due date is in late May, the day before Mom's birthday. She and her husband both love Star Wars and I got the cutest dang baby blanket on Etsy. She has had to repeatedly tell her husband that if it's a boy she is absolutely not allowing Kylo, even as a middle name. We're all pretty jazzed.

So, yes. Things are not completely terrible. I am trying to make more of a point to remember that; I suspect it's a skill I'll need in the next four to eight years.

It has been a busy-as-hell few weeks, Internet, let me tell you!

First, I got the LASIK I mentioned. It went great! They warned me that while I'd see (no pun intended) significant improvement right away, it could take a few months for my eyes to fully heal. But at the one-day follow-up I was already at 20/20, and at the two-week follow-up I was at 20/15, so at this rate, it's entirely possible that at the three-month follow-up they'll need to fit me for a Cyclops-style visor. I'll let you know how that goes for me.

A lot of people have asked me for details, so here you go! Cut mostly for length, since it's bladeless so there's no real gore, but I know a few people in my circle have eye squicks, so just in case. ) In conclusion, I'm glad I did it! If you're thinking about it, go for it. Op itself is painless (though weird), first six(ish) hours after suuuuuuuck, and since then everything's fantastic.

The other big busy-ness is my sister's wedding prep! The wedding itself is May 13th, so we're finalizing everything and it's all super exciting and exhausting, and it's not even my wedding. The other bridesmaids and I organized the shower a few weeks ago, which was nice -- very low-key and small, only a dozen or so people. We finally met some of her fiance's family, his sisters and mother, who were all lovely. His mom and ours, in fact, took to each other like a house on fire, which was a delightful surprise.

This past weekend was the bachelorette party, which was fun, but ex-friggin'-hausting. There were about eight people, and we got a couple of rooms at the Gaylord at the National Harbor, and went to dinner and a few clubs. We were up so late, I thought I might die. Half of us crashed around 1, myself included, but a few people went back out, because they are presumably cyborgs. Rita had a good time, though, which was the important thing.

(LOL that makes it sound like I was miserable. I wasn't, it was fun! Staying out late and going to very loud places with lots of strangers is just very much not my scene, so I have no desire to do it again anytime soon. At least for the wedding itself I will not be sharing a hotel room with four other people, so when the night is over and I'm exhausted and socialized out I'll be able to go back to my room and be alone, or maybe with one other person, and that one from my immediate family. The night will also be ending a great deal earlier, since we have to have everything cleared out and packed up by midnight, because the venue is also a working lab.)

Also, I have been PMSing the past few days and while the emotional stuff that sometimes accompanies that for me has been minimal, my energy levels are basically zero but more importantly I would just like to whine for a bit about how having PMS during Passover is the eleventh goddamn plague. Whyyyyyyyyy can't I have all the delicious comforting things ;_;

ANYWAY. I am trying to catch up now and I like you guys and hi. ♥

Hello, hello! It has been a pretty good couple of weeks.

+ I had my annual evaluation results call with my boss, and based on a few comments when we'd discussed my self-evaluation I had been feeling fairly optimistic. Her only criticism of my self-eval was that she thought I'd been a little too hard on myself and should get more comfortable calling attention to my accomplishments, so I knew I was doing pretty well. We were also given a range to expect our bonuses/salary increases to fall within, and it was about what I'd expected -- a little more is always nice, but I am lucky enough to be pretty financially stable right now so I was fine with not getting anything significant.

WELL. When my boss said I had been understating my achievements, that wasn't just a platitude, apparently, because both my salary increase and my bonus were significantly higher than what I'd figured was the absolute highest end of possible. Like, significantly more than even the highest end of the range everyone was told to anticipate. She sent me the documentation breaking everything down, and we had a call to go over it right before my lunch break, and when I got off the call and went to lunch I opened a bottle of champagne that I had in the fridge.

+ As for what I am going to use my bonus for, I'm having LASIK later this month! In exactly ten days, actually. I've been sort of toying with the idea for a year or so, and when I found out about this windfall I figured I might as well get evaluated, especially since my vision insurance will get me 15% off. I wasn't actually optimistic -- Dad had an evaluation a few years back and was told that his corneas (corneae?) are too thin, and that not only is he not a candidate, but he needs to be extra conscientious about annual checkups because he may need a transplant before too much longer. During the evaluation the doctor initially remarked that I had a few thin spots, but went on to say that it was nothing too severe, and that I'm an excellent candidate. I'M SO JAZZED, INTERNET. SO JAZZED.

+ I've started keeping a dream journal again. I kept one really faithfully all through high school and well into college, and then got out of the habit, but the other night I had a weird one that I wanted to write down, and later that day I read this, in which it was suggested as an approach to dealing with writer's block.
It's useful to escape from external and internal judgment—by writing, for instance, in a dream diary, which you know will never be read—even if it's only for a brief period. Such escapes allow writers to find comfort in the face of uncertainty; they give writers' minds the freedom to imagine, even if the things they imagine seem ludicrous, unimportant, and unrelated to any writing project. [...] That dream could become the source for a story. And, at a minimum, it serves as a reminder that, no matter how blocked you may be, you still have the capacity to imagine something new—no matter how small and silly it may seem.
Interestingly, it also took all of three nights for me to get to the point where I realize I'm dreaming while it's happening, which is generally the first step toward lucid dreaming, which I've only done a couple of times but was pretty rad both times. One of those realizations came last night, while dream!me was being pulled over for speeding, at which point I was like "oh dip, I'm still asleep!" and woke up feeling ridiculously, hilariously pleased with myself, as if I had actually gotten away with something IRL. The note I jotted down in my journal before rolling over and falling asleep again was just "lol that's one way to get out of a ticket".

+ The weather has been friggin' lovely lately. It got up around 80F last week, and now it's cooled off and is a bit closer to normal for this time of year, although still a little warmer. And for the most part it's been sunny, too. A+ work, nature, keep it up.

So, just for fun, let's do a variation of a meme I saw making the rounds on Twitter: Leave a comment and I'll post an image I have saved on my computer with no explanation.

EDIT: You know what, it's pretty quiet around here and I've got a whole bunch of stuff on my computer, let's make it three images per comment!

I recall this meme being fun the last time I was here, sooooo let's try it again, by way of getting back in the habit of posting! Pick a date and give me a topic, and I'll ramble about that topic on your chosen date. Crossposted to my tumblr, too, since I wouldn't mind getting in the habit of doing something besides reblogging there, too.

Well that was almost a year without posting. I am reading! I just...haven't had much to say.

Some highlights of my time not posting. )

Still trying to figure out how I'm going to make myself be better about updating DW, BUT I'M GONNA. What can I say, I dream big.

sohotrightnow: Thor with a big smile on his face. ([avengers] god of thunder and :D)
LOL so much for posting more. /o\ What up Internet, anything new and fun going on with you?
sohotrightnow: the top of a swimming young woman's torso. ([stock] all of a sudden I heard a note)
It occurs to me that I haven't made any posts in two months, and a non-flocked personal post in even longer! Honestly, this is largely because I have been super-boring recently.

BUT JULES, WHEN HAS THAT EVER STOPPED YOU BEFORE? Good question! I think I've matured somewhat. I mean, not a LOT, but somewhat. Also, my schedule is just...not that ridiculous, really -- my work week is pretty normal, about 45 hours a week (and I get overtime \o/), but add another 2+ hours' commute each day, and I'm generally pretty drained by the time I get home. I've been going to the gym more, and now that the pools are open I'm jazzed about getting in some swim time after work. I learned last summer that even a handful of laps could make a huge difference to my post-work mood.

I am occasionally on Tumblr but mostly I go check it every few weeks, fill up my queue, and then forget about it for another few weeks, because I like the pictures I find on Tumblr but so much about its functionality is annoying. My public Twitter is [ profile] juleshastweets, also, if you feel like chatting during the day, also! But really I have not felt particularly fannish about much of anything for awhile. Or rather...I hadn't felt particularly fannish about much of anything for awhile.

YESSSSSSS. I am currently pretty deeply sunk in Mass Effect. There are a couple of fics I'd like to write, even, but every time I think about writing fic I either get really exhausted (which is what happens to me w/r/t writing in general at the moment, and which is annoying and frustrating and I am trying to figure out a way to work through, because I am fully aware that my writing is not particularly special but it was really fun and satisfying for me and I do miss it) or I just end up deciding to play through again. THAT GAME THO. I seriously wasn't aware that I could still have fannish feels like that. Not exaggerating, I have not felt this kind of visceral fannishness about something in years. I got spoiled for the ending of ME3 and was grateful for it because I legit had to stop playing for about a week to deal with my rage. It's just so great.

My current favorite thing is the Indoctrination Theory, which is one of those things that I think is giving the text waaaaay too much credit but which I love anyway. It's like the Ron-is-Dumbledore theory. Y'all should share your favorite theories of that ilk with me, actually, where you know there's no way they're what's actually there in the text but they're so elegant and weird that you love them anyway and love that someone made the connections and came up with them. I just find them invariably delightful. I am not mocking here, I legit love shit like that and admire people who can think it through, because I do not generally have the patience for that kind of analysis. (Also the Indoctrination Theory DOES make more sense than the actual ending, so.)

N E WAY if there is anything you would like to hear me talk about in particular, as I make more of an effort to post here again, go ahead and let me know! I think there are a bunch of prompts from this meme I still need to fill, also. /o\ Whatever, as long as I get them done within a year of getting the prompts, it counts, right? Right, good, glad we had this conversation.

Yesterday I saw The Winter Soldier with [personal profile] cyprinella! It was fun. Cap is not really my favorite Avenger (&THOR;) but I got nothing against him, and enjoyed the first one well enough. I liked this one much more, though. I actually don't think any of this is spoilery, since it's mostly self-indulgent nonsense about the geography of the movie. )

Besides that, I got a permanent crown on one of my teeth on Saturday. I lost most of my weekend, and foresee losing most of my spare time in the foreseeable future, to Mass Effect. That's some game, huh?

Hey, so, if you're in the WTNV fandom, you may know of my dear friend [ profile] branwyn-says. She was planning to move from her current home next month, and is desperately in need of a job, since she may shortly be homeless otherwise. She's also uninsured and dealing with massive dental issues. And then, a few days ago, one of her soon-to-be-ex-neighbors raped her (if you find yourself scrolling through her tumblr, be warned that the post in which she talks about that is on the second page, and is fairly graphic).

If you can kick in even a couple of dollars to help her move, and get herself situated so she doesn't end up living in her car again when she does move out, that would be incredibly helpful. She's also welcoming distractions, and you can get an idea of what she's into by reading her tumblr -- where the button to donate via paypal is also located!

Alternately, if you know of any resources in North Carolina -- she's in the Raleigh area right now, but was tentatively planning to move to Charlotte, having a possible job offer there -- that would be great (if you're not comfortable leaving them in her ask, you can let me know in the comments, which I'll screen). Leads on potential roommates and/or jobs would be great, as well; she has a strong English background, and experience working as a carer/health aide. I don't know that she's set on Charlotte, but it's the best job possibility she's got at the moment. Hell, if you have experience navigating social services in NC, or can help her find someone who does -- Medicaid, unemployment, women's shelters -- that would be helpful, too.

As she said in a post about her current job/living situation, a week or so ago (this was before she was raped, though she's dealing with PTSD already from some other stuff in her upbringing, and it's mentioned in the post):
So…what I’m asking is, not really for money (although it would be disingenuous to pretend I couldn’t use it, and I have put the donate button back up on my main blog page). But what I could really use is for the Tumblr braintrust to try and…help me see my way through this more clearly. At this point, I’m so screwed in the head that I can’t even navigate the services that help the mentally ill find jobs (not that there are like, a lot of those.)
So, yeah. Please, if you can -- a few dollars, some tips, a job lead, any of those would be helpful. Hell, if you can just link to this post, or if you're on tumblr, reblog one of her posts on her situation and boost the signal, that would be really great.

Thanks. ♥
sohotrightnow: ([stock] what's going on on this side)
Catching up, as somehow yesterday completely got away from me. Three today, probably! Possibly? Hopefully. Two, at least. Prompts are here!

[personal profile] poisontaster asked about the most comfortable thing I own, which was REALLY DIFFICULT. Comfort is a huge priority for me when I'm buying clothes, so a lot of my wardrobe is really comfortable, and picking a winner was hard! At one point I was considering cheating and doing most comfortable top, bottom, dress, shoes, etc., but I was too lazy. /o\

I think #1, though, is probably a pair of jeans I got at the thrift store a year or so ago. They're denim trousers from Express, the Editor style, but they fit SO MUCH BETTER than any version of those I've ever tried on in the store, and I don't see them on their website or anything, so I guess maybe they're a couple of years old at this point? They are so great. I love them. The fabric is really soft and smooth, and if it were just a more consistent solid blue you wouldn't be able to tell it was denim at all; they would just look like regular trousers. I come home from work and they're the first thing I put on. Well, no, it's about even whether I'll put them on first or take my bra off first, it varies. Plus, since they were from one of my favorite thrift stores in town, on one of their discount days, they cost me less than $5, which you can't beat with a stick. I'm at work, so I can't check, but I think there's less of that stretch crap to them -- you guys I hate stretch jeans so much, SO MUCH, stretch + low rise is the worst combination ever, they are impossible for me to keep up -- and they just hang so nicely. I love them. I LOVE THEM.
sohotrightnow: ([stock] what's going on on this side)
Ughhhh still fighting off a super-annoying cold. The best thing I can say of it is that I got my flu shot, so I can be fairly confident that it's not the flu. Hooray?

Anyhoo, yesterday was super-busy at work, so I didn't manage to get to the prompt from [personal profile] poisontaster, which was a really fun one -- my most comfortable article of clothing -- that had me going "oh, this is going to be tricky". Since I finally got my bag back from United on Wednesday night, though, and am planning a big closet clean-out and laundry party this weekend, that will fit nicely into an empty slot on Saturday, anyway, so look out for that. (Still a few days for claiming, and with my hit-or-miss rate of getting things done on time I anticipate some might end up being moved to January, so feel free to toss me suggestions.)

Today, it's going to be a fairly lovely topic from [personal profile] schmerica, Fry and Tonks! Not the Futurama and Harry Potter characters, although I am pretty much always happy to yammer about Futurama and Harry Potter (I am in the middle of an HP reread right now and it was SUCH A SOLID CHOICE, Internet, let me tell you). Fry and Tonks are the names of my cats.

Pictures and more yammering under the cut. )
sohotrightnow: Lucille Bluth squinting suspiciously. ([tv] lucille is suspicious)
Blerrrrrrg between traveling and the monster cold I seem to have come down with and the neverending saga of the bag United has lost (more on that later, probably), I have missed/moved a couple of these. My apologies to those whose prompts I moved -- I definitely want to get to them, and will as soon as I can!

Trying to get back on schedule, today's prompt was from [personal profile] cruisedirector: the women of Arrested Development!

This may just stray into my love of that show in general, and/or the women of Archer, since that show has made a delightful game out of trying to get as many Arrested Development actors to guest as possible, besides having two main female characters voiced by AD alumnae (Jessica Walter -- Lucille -- as Mallory Archer, Judy Greer -- Kitty -- as Cheryl Tunt).

I am feeling too cruddy to really do justice to my love of Liza Minelli as Lucille Austero, which is TRAGIC. )

Finally, a very happy birthday to [personal profile] cruisedirector! She was one of the first, possibly the first, people from Online I ever met in person and oh my stars that was more than ten years ago now, ahhhhhh what is happening. She is also one of the few people who's been with me that long, and let's be real pretty much everyone who puts up with me for ten-plus years deserves some kind of a medal. ♥ You are wonderful, darling.

Request a topic here!

sohotrightnow: Thor with a big smile on his face. ([avengers] god of thunder and :D)
Hello! I am in Australia, visiting my parents. It is pretty darn lovely so far. I'm mostly in Adelaide, where Mom and Dad are living, but I did spend a fabulous few days in Melbourne, with the primary goals of seeing [personal profile] lizbee and watching "Day of the Doctor" in Glorious 3D at the cinema (check and check).

I had a layover at Sydney airport, and on checking in for my Qantas flight to Adelaide and going past security, one of the first things that greeted me was a combination wine bar/bookstore. This country gets me.

I'm working in the mornings, which is not nearly as anxiety-inducing and frustrating as I thought it might be! This is for a few reasons:
  1. I am -- shameful to admit as a middle-class white girl and sometime blogger, but true -- not actually a great traveler! But having something familiar that could ground me and be part of a regular routine helped me a lot. And having to wake up and keep to a certain schedule, since I'd arranged it with my manager beforehand, helped me a lot with avoiding jet lag, actually.

  2. It gives me something to do by myself, and keep me from feeling like I've had too much Family Togetherness.

  3. It actually eases the anxiety quite a bit -- I have to work a certain number of hours in the month to keep my health plan, for one thing, and while I don't think it would've been a problem meeting the required number, it's nice to be sure. (Mom was concerned about my financial wellbeing when I mentioned I would have to work while I was there, and in fact called me to ask if I was doing all right, and I explained that it's less about the money -- although an extra few hundred never goes amiss -- than about the benefits, which she totally understood.)

  4. My contract is also up at the end of this month/the year. While I anticipate it being renewed again, I didn't think it would help my odds if they realized they did fine without me for three weeks. Conversely, my taking time out of my vacation to help because ~the team is just so busy~ looks great. If nothing else, even if they had already decided not to renew my contract again, at least it would be great for my references, that I was willing to pitch in while on vacation.
Now there is less than a week until I leave, though, which on the one hand is terrible because Adelaide is so friggin' lovely and it has been the better part of two years since I've seen my parents, but I will be glad to be back at my usual work computer instead of having to deal with Citrix, which is the worst, and I miss my cats a lot, and Mom and Dad are moving back sometime early next year.

(I also miss the dog! Oh yes, we got a new dog a couple of weeks before I left. Pictures eventually.)

In between drinking all sorts of exciting new beers and ciders, and going to the beach and wandering around the Botanic Gardens, Mom and I have been watching lots of TV. I'm introducing her to Archer, which is going swimmingly. We're going to the beach later today, since it seems to be one of the few days this week it may be warm enough to do so. Yesssssss beach, I friggin' love the beach and no one has gone with me this year (the drive from home to the beach is just long enough that I prefer to have someone else with me, besides its just being a lovely day out) and for a terrible few months I thought I might not get to a beach at all this year, it was tragic.

I may do that December journal prompt meme I've seen around, but we shall see.
sohotrightnow: James Bond, naked, allowing Eve, in red, to shave him with a straight razor. ([skyfall] your life in my hands)
Bond/Moneypenny, rated M (Mature), for the "caning" square on my k_b card (BINGOOOOOOOO!). Now that she's out of the field, Eve can have a social life again. That's the idea, anyway. ~3000 words, no warnings. At AO3.

(Brought to you by my searching frantically for fic after finally watching that movie a couple of weeks ago and discovering that of the ~500 works in which Eve was tagged on AO3, including the 22 fics tagged for Eve/Bond, she is mostly there to be the sassy matchmaker for Bond and Q. Dear fandom, when canon sets you a low bar for treatment of women, particularly women of color -- there was friggin' brownface in the movie prior to this, come the fuck on! -- THAT DOES NOT REPRESENT AN INVITATION TO A LIMBO CONTEST.)

Also, the title is from this poem, which I wholly encourage everybody to read a million times, because ughhhhhhh I can't even with it.
sohotrightnow: The Ninth Doctor, with the London Eye framing him in the background. ([dw] gay and innocent and heartless)
Doctor Who, Nine/Martha. Rated M (Mature). For the "spanking/paddling" square on my [community profile] kink_bingo card. A stranger spills Martha's drink, and local custom on this planet is quite clear on how that must be dealt with. (So, sort of Aliens Make Them Do It.) No warnings. ~1600 words. At AO3.
sohotrightnow: Gul Dukat leering, labeled "with club sauce" ([st] look at banner kira!)
HERE IS THE DEAL: I cannot get Naomie Harris as Captain Elizabeth (Beth) Sisko out of my head. Think about it. And then talk to me about how incredible it would be. Also, I recently rewatched "The Maquis" two-parter and no force on earth will convince me that Sisko and Dukat didn't sleep together. Anyway, here are ~650 words about Beth Sisko and Dukat having phone-hatesex, for the "gags/silence" square on my k_b card. Rated T (Teen); no warnings apply.

(This actually kept spiraling into a much longer story, and I was getting overwhelmed and finally just decided to write the single condensed scene for the time being and keep plugging away at the longer one rather than freaking out and giving up altogether. So look for that at some point, maybe.)
