And here I was planning on doing better about updating my LJ  
For those of you who don't have the incredible patients I've no doubt it must take to follow me on twitter (@angelgazing, ftr, if you want to join the insanity) I am in the process of doing something I've dreamed about for as long as I can remember and opening my own restaurant.

It's not going to be anything very big, or very fancy. It's not going to be exactly the place I've imagined for years. But it's going to be mine, and I'm so excited about it I tend to lapse into verbal keysmashing when the subject comes up. (Thank whatever from high atop the thing, honestly, for [livejournal.com profile] gyzym's ability to understand when I speak in keysmash.)

I grew up in a restaurant, because my family owned one from the time I was four until they sold it about 9 years ago. I remember being six and training a new waitress on where the tables were. I remember learning to work the register. I still can't handle cash that isn't all facing the same direction. I remember slicing a billion lemons, and watching my great grandmother make bread, and having cake for breakfast, and buttered sourdough straight out of the oven. The smell of it baking is always going to ping a little bit like home for me. We're naming the new place after her.

Anyway, because I keep flailing like the ridiculous person that I am, and it's going to be a crazy and stupidly long process and also, I know that mostly people are here for fandom, I've decided to go ahead and create a filter for the news/updates/random flail about this and the process and getting it going. Because this is opt-in, not opt-out, if you want on the filter, please click the little radio button below:

[Poll #1674964]

In fandom news:

  • Forced bed-sharing is the new theme at [livejournal.com profile] harlequincepted
  • I have fallen crazy stupid in love with Hawaii 5-0
  • I need all the fic ever where Steve and Danny are accidentally married. I need MOAR. There is not enough!
  • I am totally working on A/E fic, I swear!
  • Eventually, I will be writing A/E surfer fic. HERE'S HOPING IT DOESN'T TURN INTO H5-0 AU.

productivity is hard  
I should be in bed right now, but first, a couple of things:

1. OH MY GOD SHAWN AND GUS HAIIII I HAVE MISSED YOU. <33333333333

2. I FINALLY WATCHED GLEE.
2.a) HELLO, DARREN CRISS, NICE TO SEE YOU ON MY TELEVISION, NOW PLEASE TO BE GIVING ME BACK THE CURLS AND THAT ADORABLE FUCKING HALF SMIRK THING THAT MADE ME FALL IN LOVE IN LIKE LESS THAN 2 MINUTES OF A VERY POTTER MUSICAL.
2.b) SPOILERS, SPOILERS BE HERE )
2.c) I still want to set Schue on fire. This is not a spoiler, it is a fact of life.
2.d) This is a spoiler... and a fic idea/request )

3. Today I was avoiding traffic by hanging around Target when a guy walks up behind me and says, "Excuse me, ma'am?" And I'm thinking "Yeah, I can't find ANYTHING in this store, please don't ask me for help," but I'm fresh off three hours of customer service training videos so instead I say, "Yes?" And he says, "Has anyone told you lately that you are gorgeous?" Which is a ridiculous statement, because my hair was a mess and my makeup was ruined and I kept tripping over my own pant legs and was walking toward the Starbucks inside of Target like it held the meaning to life, and also, you know, I'm me. And it isn't as though I didn't realize it was a lame pickup attempt. But still, it made me smile.
3.a) It's so easy to make someone's day just a little bit better, you guys. So easy. Why don't more people do that?

4. Started the new job today. Spent an hour playing on my phone, waiting for the training officer to start training me. But apparently I got paid for it, so... I guess that's a win?

5. You should all feel free to email me fic in case this happens again. Please, please, for the love of god.


... And now I am really going to bed, homework totally undone. Fuck.

watching fictional people do fictional shots has been making me gag  
I JUST GOT BACK FROM WATCHING SHERLOCK HOLMES (FINALLLLYY) AND I HAVE THE SAME THING TO SAY AS THE REST OF THE INTERNET: BRING ME THE FINEST HOLMES AND WATSON IN ALL THE LAND. GIVE TO ME YOUR HOLMES/WATSON MOVIEVERSE FIC, INTERNET. SHARING IS CARING.

I owe people comments, and emails, and eventually I should also post my yuletide over in this direction, but I'm still pretty exhausted. I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep last night, my stomach was still pretty wobbly all day today, and I've spent more time on the phone in the last two days than I have in the last two months.

I will totally do those things I need to be doing. But for now, I think I will curl up with a) Buffy reruns, b) season two of BBT or, c) the Holmes book I just bought, with stories written by Niel Gaiman and Stephen King and... other people. IDK.

ohio is still dead to me, too  
Tomorrow is a big day. I don't have a better opening line for this entry. You know what's coming anyway.

Tomorrow is a big day. Tomorrow, you have a chance. Tomorrow, you can make a change.

I'm not telling you who to vote for. Lord knows, I am in a red state, I am pretty used to being disagreed with on who I think the ballot should be cast for. The point isn't what I think the choice should be, or the policies I believe are right or wrong.

The point is: this is America, and that used to mean more than it does, I think.

The point is: we have a choice.

It is our right to stand up, now, to stand up 365.25 days of the year, and blog until our fingers ache, to shout at the top of our lungs about what we think are the rights and wrongs and injustices. Tomorrow, we have the chance to make a change.

Make a choice.

It's like the tv says: decisions are made by those who show up.

Make a decision, please.

Cast a vote.

you've got me wrapped around your finger...  
I didn't realize time had changed because all my clocks set themselves!

The transition is much smoother that way, really.

New mood theme! Oh, bandom, I love you. Ilyilyily.

Someone needs to write J2 pretend boyfriends fic. I call not it!

I'm on fire (and now I think I'm ready)  
My living room is currently filled with boxes. Lots and lots of boxes.

I sort of want to build a fort, instead of pack.

OMG I am moving! Into a house! I hate moving! I hate packing! I don't know if I'm excited or horrified, atm!

Also: I just burned my thumb on the pizza pan.

Clearly, clearly I have mastered adulthood.

You should all be awed.
