Don't know if anyone is interested, but wordriot.org have a load of one off, limited time texts to download under their 'Published For A Day' day.

Novels, short story collections, poetry - they may be great, they may be shit, but for one day only they're yours to grab here!

Also, I went a little insane and signed up for [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo  *worried grin*

Should anyone wish to join me in my madness there is a sign up post to get your card here.

* * *

And, for no reason at all, have a Stargate Atlantis rec! Rodney has a bad day.

It's silly and funny and always cheers me up when I read it :)

 Will someone please, please, PLEASE tell me how to shut off the 'plot bunnies' part of my brain? Please?!

I am trying desperately to finish The Bat and my SGA crossover (before starting on the 5k + counting other WIPs) and does my muse give me help on this? Does it buggery!

My short Lyle angsty h/c is now a Lyle, Abby, Rob angsty-h/c-crossover-with-70's-childrens-literature 3-fic arc and a Primeval Superpowers AU idea has just sprung, fully formed into my head as well!

Save me Jebus, save me!
 So - I saw lukadreaming's post with the WIP meme? And I decided to do it myself?

oh dear god...

RIP Oliver Postgate. Gone to the great junk shop in the sky.

It was my fervent wish as a child to have small clockwork mice who had a chocolate biscuit making machine. I didn't care that it was the same biscuit going round and round.

Whyfor do you hate me, internet connection? Whyfor do you cut out and leave me for days, then swan back into my life without explanation for your absence? Haven't I always been good to you baby? Haven't I spent literally hours roaming all over you? Haven't I looked at pictures of things that have scarred my brain for LIFE for you? Whyfor ya gotta treat me like this?

*** 

And, as well as my erstwhile dear buggering off and leaving me, I have also had to deal with something that made me want to smash my head against the nearest concrete surface – you know Schrödinger's Bat? You know how it was finished? You know I was posting it? Yeah... 
You know how other people's computers will sometimes infect your data key and corrupt all the data? 

*completely hysterical laughter*

Yes. I am now in the position of trying to paste this fic back together from various drafts and remember how the large amount that I hadn't got backed up elsewhere went. (I am backing up at every third fucking keystroke from now on – I lost other stuff as well and have spent a few days in a VERY bad mood.)

So this one is on hiatus AGAIN, and I'm seriously starting to think it doesn't want to be told at all. I'm not even going to speculate when it'll be up, though I do have time to work on it so hopefully soon. Teach me to post it all the second it's finished next time.

Really, words cannot express how hacked off I am about this. Happy frickin Birthday to me :(

In the meantime, here's the rimming extract, which was saved elsewhere (thank you fredbasset! If it wasn't for puppy peeing on the carpet that bit would probably have gone as well!). I'm gonna post this because I thought some of you might reach through the internet and strangle me otherwise :)

I've been catching up on the comment porn thread that fred started and there's some brilliant stuff on there. I am most upset that I didn't get to play.

And I was going to introduce you all to the wonders of Oliver Leek porn *sulks*


(no, not really! I'm not that twisted)

I’m going to be getting myself a laptop after xmas and then I might actually be able to write and post stuff when I say I will.

The home computer I now use is actually mr oddegg’s and whilst it was perfect when all I wanted to do was send emails or look things up online every so often, now that I’ve shrugged off my Luddite shackles, embraced the technology revolution, tuned in, jacked up and, most importantly, started writing porn constantly, I really need to get a machine of my own.

 

Because somehow, “Sweetie, can I interrupt your very important video editing so I can write about men rimming each other” doesn’t meet with such a favourable response. Can’t think why.

And having decided on the new comp. I now feel I should probably ban myself from the internet for my own good.

I was hop-scotching my way around comic sites and on a comicbookresources forum came upon an old thread about how long you can stay awake (yeah, I’m not sure what it was doing there either) and there were people who were all ‘well, I need my 9 hours but I did once stay awake for a WHOLE 36 HOURS!!’ and my first two responses were, pretty simultaneously:

a) Cunts. Try 16 weeks of intermittent insomnia, bitch!

b) 36 hours. Pussy-ass motherfuckers. I was awake for a 40 hour stretch on Friday and still went out partying!!

 

But the one that worried me was the third, rather competitive response:

c) Hmmm. My personal ‘best’ was about 66 hours. I wonder if I could top that.

 

I then found myself actually thinking about testing how long I can do without sleep. Just out of curiosity.

Don’t think I should let my brain out without supervision anymore.

Kinda couldn't sleep again, so...

I spent a good deal of the night bookmarking Chad Michael Murray slash fics.

Christ, I have no dignity left at ALL.

Randomness from a night out.

1) If you have bluetooth, even though it may seem very funny at the time you should not make yourself come up on others phones as either 'Suck Me Beautiful' or 'Call Me Its Huge'. We will just mock you.

2) Yes, the bar may have a horror theme, but playing chain-saw sound effects in the toilets is still a bad idea. Especially when your patrons may have been discussing classic slasher movies earlier.

3) "It's not a good start to the week when the first thing you see on Monday morning is pigeons eating the vomit outside TGI Fridays"

4) Chasing 4 beers with your sleeping pill in defiance of the packet warning works like a charm and knocks you out, but the next day in the supermarket it does leave you staring into space, twisting the trolley handle and making 'brrmm-brrmm' noises to yourself, so perhaps this is an experiment not to repeat that often. 
And in other news - drugs are crap.
I thought the point of sleeping pills was to, you know, make you sleep? Not do bugger all about the fact you're awake all night BUT make you dopey the next day.

Am so beyond tired its starting to be amusing. I'm just waiting for someone to introduce themself as Tyler Durban on the tube now - maybe if we blow up a financial district I'll be able to get some sleep? (though not if it means going anywhere near Helen Bonham Carter, even with a specially emo, black-painted barge pole I'm not touching that)

But in good news I think I've started a friend on the slippery slope to fandom! We were discussing tv shows and books and talk got onto Harry Potter; I told her about some of the fanfiction I'd read and gave her some links to good Snarry ones. I may have briefly mentioned Wincest and Eppescest as well.

Her: well, I'll have a look but I dont see whats so good about two guys getting it on.
Me: *evil cackle* Oh, you will, my pretty, you will!

OK, I may have left off the 'my pretty' and I didn't threaten to get my flying monkey's (even though, cool! - flying monkey's!)
Smoked almonds are nice. A bit too nice, as I’ve just eaten 100g of them and now I feel ill but still want more. I suspect the coating of being ‘smoke flavour’ mixed with crack.

 

…and other blatherings – under a cut so I don’t spew all over your flists like an overfriendly drunk at a bar spews on your shoes…

I've had a bit of a bad week. Or couple of weeks really.

Sleep deprivation has meant that I’ve been going round in a daze – with my brain not working right and an increasing sense of unreality creeping up on me.

I was meant to be working on fics. I was meant to be posting bloody fics on rounds_of_kink and I just couldn’t get my mind to co-operate.

Realised I might not be 100% well when I started crying at work.

 

Feeling a bit better today and I’m working on my fics. Everything’s gonna be late but, meh, what can you do?

 

**

 

And something I found funny - someone should come up with a slasher's version. 
Not me though. I'm still working on my Edward Lear parody.

So, I was looking through LJ communities for Supernatural or Jensen/Jared RPS (padackles) fandoms, 'cos that's one of my new obsessions (slash - it's an illness, please help me...) and then I was watching the second series of 'Bones' and I was thinking 'I wouldn't mind reading some Booth/Brennan fics, stave off all the boylove', and I tried searching for Bones?

Came up with god knows how many pro-anorexia sites.

I mean, I can see the attraction in a slim woman - I count Charlotte Gainsbourg and Alyson Hannigan as two of my 'would definitely do them if I were gay' girls - but this?

I do NOT understand why some people need to make themselves look like something out of an Auscwitz documentary to feel attractive, or in control, or loved.

I just dont. The human mind is a very strange thing.
