Gardening photos and etc!  
Nothing much going on. blahblah )

Ok that was all self indulgent anxiety word throw up. Don't read it. After I post this I'm going to find some food and maybe take half an anxiety pill. Or make another pot of tea. Or both.

On to the gardening photos because that's more fun.

(I've included that last one because do you see that white-ish vegetable off to the right? It looks like an alien I know, but it's a kohlrabi. Fun CSA adventures!)

Also is anyone else here having trouble with their friend's page? A few weeks back I lost the button for "skip back 20 entries" and now I'm only seeing a handful of entries on the page. I've got a support ticket started, but I haven't heard back. Anyone else or am I the problem account?

For everyone, happy full moon!

I think that covers everyone. LOL.

Authorised RPF  
AO3 still haven't admitted Staged (BBC 2020) to their fandoms - probably because it is unlikely ever to be shown in the US. Nevertheless, I am currently considering a crossover with the Jaguar 'Bad Brits' advert in which the members of the League of Evil British Actors consider (via Zoom, naturally) whether the devil, in the form of Crowley or Lucifer, is sufficiently Evil to allow David Tennant and Tom Ellis to join the club.

TV Tropes is also behind the curve on this one.

And Tweak - the correct quote is "Never Give Up, Never Surrender!" (What do they teach them in the se schools?)

We've made it halfway through 2020. Let's give ourselves a pat on the back, yeah? Hopefully, the second half of the year is less eventful. O_o

Now onto business....

Fic Alert!  

Holy crap, y'all. This is the first time I've written a full-on fic in... well, I'm not even willing to say how long it's been. I was so out of practice that I had basically forgotten how to write. And for some inexplicable reason, I apparently thought this would be a swell time to pick up a prompt that was way outside my usual realm. (Or what used to be my usual realm, at any rate. It's been so long that I don't even have a realm anymore!) Ha. Hahahaha.

But! I pulled it off somehow! All things considered, I'm sure this isn't exactly the greatest thing I've ever written. But it's a FIC and it's DONE and I AM THRILLED! *\o/*

*knock knock*  
Is anyone else having an issue with their friends page here? I was unable to skip back 20 entries starting a few weeks ago and now there's only about 5 entries. The fuck? Is there a bug or a mass abandonment happening??

Quick Post  
Thank you everyone who sent me well wishes for last week -- I'll reply individually later today. *hugs* ♥

I'm mostly feeling better. I think I've just hit a new regular pain level. We'll see how my cycle is in a week.

Nothing much going on; just collecting my CSA veg and enjoying more variety at the farmers market. Grandma is driving me crazy because she's been going out here and there for just a few items -_- Work continues to be awful. I'm starting to just. Zone out. Either because I can't handle having so little to do or because I can't handle the work load of the managerial stuff; sometimes both. *shrug* But I have plants and fresh veg each week! And books enough to keep me company (and literally our store manager has seen us reading and we've made sure to keep an eye out for customers so our review numbers should be good so it's fine. It's all fine.)

Just a few photos of the plants today -- mushrooms that were growing out of the drain holes in my tomato plant (and I emailed my state's extension group and they confirmed it likely isn't anything I'm doing and that the mushroom spores came with the soil); one from my indoor garden; our first pea pod that was ready for eating; and a spider whom I startled this morning and he let me know it. Poor guy. I felt bad.

I've put it behind the cut for the spider.

Plants! )
