I’m really not sure how, between the time I posted last night and this morning when I got to work that my “Time Lord Tricks” icon (about sexuality and seduction) had changed to something about Texas and the death penalty. That was NOT my doing. While I may have smirked a bit at the message on it, it’s not something I’d ever be attaching to my journal, especially in an icon… and especially attached to a fanfic I was promoting.
Needless to say… I’m a bit horrified at the moment.
So if it offended anyone, please accept my apologies. I didn’t put it there. Honest to God, I didn’t. But it showed up on my journal, so I feel it necessary to apologize regardless of how it got there. As soon as I found it there this morning, I deleted that icon entry entirely from my userpics list. I’m bummed that my time lord tricks icon is gone – but better that than what I saw on my journal this morning. ;P The odd thing is that my credit for the REAL icon that was in that slot was removed, too – so I’m completely befuddled as to what happened.
Passwords to my journal are now changed, all that jazz, just in case. *shudder*
I’m both relieved and happy to hear the fic is being well-received so far. I’m honestly surprised at the number of “is there more?” questions. I hadn’t planned on it, to be honest. But wiggiemomsi, who bought the fic in question, also suggested a return to that universe. So I suppose that yes, there will be. As of yet, I don’t know what form it’s going to take, however.
We’ll get there. In the meantime, after some thought on the train this morning, I’ve signed up for the next installment of Support Stacie. The next auction is April 3-6th. Yay!
ETA: Which reminds me. I don’t have enough Nine icons. *sigh* Suggestions?
Back at work after the long weekend, and I definitely have a case of vacation-itis. Very slow, very meh. It’s probably a good thing it’s quiet today, as I’d be moving too damn slowly otherwise.
I spent Sunday doing anything but Who. (for what it’s worth, I still haven’t watched the Confidential from Saturday, nor the Christmas one. *shrug*) I don’t think it helped my mood any that after all of the b.s. on Saturday, BBC-A was showing Silence in the Library, which I do enjoy – but the timing was just not good. I definitely couldn’t sit back and watch Who after the b.s. I’ll be taking a few weeks off from watching eps, I think. Aside from fanfic – which is all AU anyway, I think I’ll be on a nice quiet break from fandom entirely.
So yes – lots of WoW on Sunday, plus a brunch out with Erich, lots of laundry and a belated New Year’s good luck meal of pork chops, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes (a family superstition). All came out well.
It was a good weekend overall. I accomplished a few things off of my to-do list for January – the biggest being an overhaul of my office. I managed to get most of my fic writing done that I wanted to accomplish, and I’m not worried at all about finishing it up this week. Laundry is all washed, although it needs to be put away.
I’m very happy to have an office again – and it’s much better than ever. It actually looks like a finished room, finally. I just have some small sorting projects left to do and some extra defurring to do on the pampasan chair, but I can sit down and I can enjoy the space. The new bookshelves from IKEA just make the room look more organized. And really, just walking by it this morning and NOT seeing the god-awful pit of despair was wonderful. I’m not kidding when I say that the room might have been just a bit less scary than the rooms you see on How Clean is Your House?. It was really, really gross and embarrassing.
Now to just get WoW reinstalled on the desktop.
I treated myself to a teapot, too. My office gave the other two admins and me each a gift certificate to Amazon for $50. I’ve been needing a teapot – my small Chinese one had a cat-related breaking incident (and honestly was too small anyway). I found this one and liked the style of it, plus the small loose tea scoop and wood board it comes with. So hopefully in a few days, it’ll arrive. I have some absolutely divine Mint Chai I picked up at Wegmans in November, and I want to be able to brew a pot at a time.
Goals for this week: Finish my fic, get to at least level 77 (if not 78) in WoW, and make sure I can relax this weekend.
Not that I was thinking of leaving LJ during the uproars last year, but I’m quite impressed with the policy communication here.
