Happy Tax Day to celli (Walking Dead taxfic)

baking update: some kind of cocoa scones - they didn't turn out that well

fic update: Happy Tax Day, [personal profile] celli!

Nothing is Certain
by LastScorpion

Disclaimer: The rights to "The Walking Dead" and all its characters don't belong to me. This is just fanfic, purely for the entertainment of myself and a few of my friends. It goes AU after season, um, two I think? Possibly three? (LOL we don't get that channel; I've only seen it on DVD from the library.) Also I don't know if you've seen even that much of it -- Hershel is a sort-of elderly veterinarian, with one leg (because they had to chop the other one off when a zombie bit him!). Beth and Maggie are his daughters. A group of zombie apocalypse survivors are settled in a prison (where the walls and fences mostly keep the zombies out.)

Summary: The dead have risen. Darn. (Seriously, it's "Walking Dead". Do I even have to say zombie apocafic?) Read more... )

-Forgot to mention that when we went to see The Winter Soldier, we took the bus to the theater and the driver told me that my little guy (Steve) rode free! Awesome bus driver is awesome.

-Went out today to get wood shavings for the bunny's home. We decided on going to the farm store rather than Walmart because 1) buses on a Saturday and 2) Walmart on a Saturday. No. Just, no. Especially if we just needed to get the shavings. So, being that it was a nice day, we took the bunny out. He was better than the cat, even to the point where he was sunbathing as we walked along.

-Hanging out with the youngest sister this last week has turned into a Bucky-feels event. I'm not complaining and I don't mind, but I forgot the high one gets when one discovers new feels and is in the mood for sharing. (I have had Bucky-feels so Winter Solider was just adding to it all, but youngest sister just discovered.)

-We rewatched Iron Man last night to figure out if maybe Stane was a member of Hydra. Given that we never really find out why he wanted Tony killed and his behaviour, I firmly think he was and that the hit was put out because Tony had outlived his purpose. (Either that or the math formula thingie determined that the cave was Tony's push toward agreeing with the registration act. I'm unclear which. But since the registration act is pretty much what Hydra was after...I dunno. Maybe?)

-Comics are best enjoyed in print and not digital. I think anyway. Besides the fact that most of the time, the comics are the same price, the reading part is difficult. Zooming in and then having it go here and there where you don't want it to and turning it to better zoom in...maybe it's just that I'm reading it on a tablet? Dunno. I like print better. The only exceptions I'll make is 1) if it's on sale (like last week when there was a huge sale on some Captain America items that I wanted) and 2) if it's on sale and in my wishlist. Otherwise, I love print.

-Middle sister is going to S.C. for two weeks on Wednesday. I'm looking forward to this because there will be less stress in the house. Particularly for youngest sister. There are reasons, but I'm still unsure if the reasons are because of stress from the beginning of the year or if the reasons are here to stay. Which I hope not.

-Work is finally picking up. Been so busy, so many things to do. I feel useful again. Rather than just taking up space and money for not doing anything. Happy.

-Middle sister is finally going to see a doctor about one of her heart conditions to see what more can be done or anything. Crossing my fingers. And youngest sister is going in for a psych eval to see if something there is adding to her migraines. She's nervous--afraid the eval is going to pull up that she's a sociopath or something. I think she might be on the Asperger's scale, but we'll find out soon.

-Easter is soon. I shall have pics up, but we found Avenger's Easter boxes for $1. Also candy filled Avenger's easter eggs. We're excited :D (Hey, who says Easter baskets are just for kids?) There was also mini Lindt chocolates in Easter shapes (like bunnies, rabbits, etc.) at the club store so we picked some of those up. Also will have that Sunday off. I'm meh about this because woohoo, a day off I didn't ask for! R&R is good. (And the fact that I can enjoy it without middle sister possible aggravating me or youngest sister is a bonus!) On the other hand, this is an unpaid day and one of the 2 days of my work week that pays me the most. So that's a bit of a hurt. (The fact that I'll be picking up 2 extra shifts does not really help as I really need all the money so I can bills as well as the hotel for November and a new phone for my sister as well as those other adulty things I am now solely responsible for. This is actually a very long story and not for a random post. Another day!)

-The weather has been gorgeous lately. I hope everyone's Spring is going the same! (And those of you who are in autumn right now--hope you aren't too bad off either!)

So, as promised, bear-Steve and bear-Tony in every day clothes. I was going to go with a white shirt originally for bear-Tony, but youngest sister found this one that matched him better. He is wearing dark "skinny" jeans--I know this picture is not the best, but I wanted to be sure to get it taken and posted before I change bear-Steve into his uniform for tomorrow and not change him back for a couple of days (because I am a terrible bear-mom at times; he prefers to be in his civies on his down time).

Tomorrow, we three girls are going to see Captain America (finally, it's premiered!) and I'm taking bear-Steve with me. Anyone want to see pics of him at the theater?

Also, curious if anyone is interested in their adventures out and about? I admittedly do not go out and about to many exciting places so neither would the boys, but I can take them when I do go out if anyone is interested.

The Scorpion blithers about Glee

So I've seen about half the episodes of Glee this season. In this latest one, Quinn & Puck seemed to get back together -- for no real good reason that I could see. Don't get me wrong; I love Quinn & Puck, and even Quinn/Puck. But I think there would have to be a lot of build-up, to get them over all the stuff they've had together so far. Here's how I would write it:

Quinn and Santana, drinking and talking in the Improbably Spacious & Beautiful Loft in Bushwick, agree that Noah Puckerman is the best of a bad lot when it comes to Men to Have Sex With. Old Cheating Prof. Froshpoker and Thurston Douchebag III (sorry, can't be bothered to look up the actual names of those two creeps Quinn has dated since going to Yale) were terrible in bed, and all of the guys Quinn's sorority sisters date are also complete zeros in the What-a-Girl-Wants-What-a-Girl-Needs department. (Possible song cue?) Santana makes a lascivious inference; Quinn shoots it down politely. Santana takes it in good grace, asks if the sorority has a pool they could hire Puck to clean. A light bulb goes off -- opening credits for QUINN FABRAY: PROCURESS, a rollicking sex farce spin-off featuring Quinn & Puck & a bunch of beautiful actresses playing Yale sorority girls, with special guest star appearances from the other Glee people, especially Santana & Brittany. (OMG Mercedes would be shocked once she realized what was going on. Shocked and disappointed. And possibly really funny, like when she dragged Kurt & Blaine out of the car for Will & Emma's failed wedding.) After a couple of seasons of UST (Quinn being the only female in, where is it, Connecticut? that won't sleep with Puck just makes him want her more) and working together to solve a variety of wacky problems/situations, then it would be the time for them to decide they love each other and want to be a couple for real. :-D
