still busy!  

Ridiculously beautiful day yesterday. We spent FAAAR more time at the zoo than expected, and saw Everything. Ev.Er.Ee.Thing. Attempted to go to the Botanic Gardens today. Well. Succeeded, actually, but got rained on so only went through the greenhouses and not all the grounds.

Tonight I made a strawberry rhubarb crumble. It was gorgeous.

I got some unexpected writing time in, and MAGIC & MANNERS is now up to 33.4K, which is nominally the 1/3rd mark. I think it’s probably even fairly close to *being* the 1/3rd mark. Support its continuation here! I’m about 7 chapters ahead right now, so you won’t get left in the lurch!

My year-to-date wordcount is about 143K. This is, no shit, about my total wordcount for last year. This year is better. o.O

I desperately hope that next week’s Agents of SHIELD does not disappoint me. It’s bound to, because they’re almost certainly going to do the one thing I wish they wouldn’t, but I can hope.

I have now seen Winter Soldier three times. It may keep getting better with each viewing. The woman next to me at the most recent viewing was not a superhero movie fan in general (not that she didn’t like them, she just didn’t go to them, apparently; she reported to her date afterward that she liked the movie), so she wasn’t prepared for Chris Evans’s shoulder to hip ratio (but then, who is?) and gave an audible sort of laughing gasp when we first get a look at him in that grey t-shirt. :)

My potatoes are sprouting!

Also we had two bicycles stolen out of our back garden over the weekend. :p

Almost Human has been cancelled, but it can’t hurt to sign a petition to try to rescue it, right?

I bought a pair of new tennies on March 31st. I noticed yesterday that they were falling apart. I went in to complain today, despite not having my receipt, and they said if I could bring in a bank statement with the purchase on it they’d get me sorted, so that’s awesome. I mean, I walk a lot, but come *on*!

Which reminds me I need to thingy my fitbit. Recharge.

Okay. Must go figure out tomorrow’s schedule. End of the line, as a friend always says.

Boo for the stolen bicycles and the imploding sneakers. SERIOUS BOO for the cancellation of the best new show this season. Sigh.

Runs off to sign...

Curious to know what the one thing is that you're afraid of in AoS.

Ward seemed to be hinting that all is not as it appears with him, but I don't see how that makes any logical sense.

I just use 'end of line'. I got it from Tron - the OS they invented for the movie uses that instead of period, [end], semi-colon, or any other logical function. :)

wow. in all the years i've read your blog i've never noticed the lack off "the" in that sentence. wow. o.o

I won't hold it against you, don't worry. :)

Curious to know: Did last week's episode of AoS disappoint, after all? And do you have any thoughts on Peggy Carter getting her own TV series?

(I originally linked an article about the Agent Carter TV series, but doing so caused the comment to be marked as spam. Oh well.)
