What's Going On?  
Lord, I wish I could really feel fannish again. Translate that into chatting about fannish things, and most of all, writing. Well, one day....

So, here's a fannish thing. I think it was hils, another new Psych fan like me, who was wondering why no one shipped Lassiter and Juliette. And it got me thinking, and now when I watch new eps, I keep seeing it!! And I'm not a shippy person! [glares] Have I mentioned how much I love Psych!?! We actually have it record in priority over Leverage on the DVR! Now that's love. Nin and I have decided we're a toned down version of Sean and Gus as far as best friends and 'kindred spirits' - she's Sean, I'm Gus. Seriously, if you know us, you're nodding LOL

Chocolate bunny has disappeared :( We haven't seen him in over a week, and I'm afraid an unkind fate has befallen him as well.

We have, what I've decided is a Kestrel (after poring over many bird pics), that hangs around here for the bird feeder buffet. Two weekends ago, I was tossing some bread out for the birds and it swooped not three feet in front of me, thinking the hunk o' bread was a bird. I'm not sure who was more startled - him, or me!

Work is still incredibly stressful.

We're waaaay behind on TV. Stuff is piling up. And Olympics! We love the winter ones. And there's 24, and AI, Chuck, White Collar!! Oh, Burn Notice! Not to mention the three eps I'm behind on Friday Night Lights, which I adore. And we still haven't seen the last 6 Merlins.

One of the highlights of the Dland trip was hitting the Bevmo in Chino Hills on the way home. OMG! A real liquor store. Was heavenly. I got STRONGBOW! And my brother had never been in one before.

Yes, this is a ramble. What did you expect?

Lewis is getting snip snipped tomorrow. Vet says he's nearly two, and boy, he has been putting the 'Tom' into Tom cat the last week.

We don't get Presidents' Day off at work [sigh] We get a 'personal day' instead because the majority of the Utah employees want Pioneer Day off in June. It's a big deal here. Don't know what I'll use my personal day for. Maybe a long weekend in the long dry spell between Labour Day and Thanksgiving?

The End!

When is President's day? We don't get it off either and I don't have kids in school now and not keeping up.

I was up on most of my shows until tonight. I looks like SPN isn't coming back on (after tonight) until March 25.

It's Monday. I think we're 3 behind on SPN.

oh I love Psych my mom got me into it, they're great! I hope the bunny is OK :(
Ith: Nature - Bunnyithildyn on February 12th, 2010 07:21 pm (UTC)
We just started watching last year. I hope he is too.
Black Wolfdet_munch on February 12th, 2010 07:30 pm (UTC)
that is around when I started watching too :) I think of my friend in CT (used to live there) and I as sort of Sean and Guss too. I'm Sean she's Guss haha

Lord, I wish I could really feel fannish again.

I think we all hit dry spots in the road.........and RL interferes
too....e.g. for the past three days I have been trying to compile
my deductions so my tax preparer can do the taxes next week.
I know that does not sound like much of a challenge but believe me
it is.............my neighbor just hauls it all to her preparer, but I don't want to pay her to do it all.........
Anyhow, sorry to get side tracked but I guess I was just talking about dry spells in fandom. Sometimes I don't want to deal with it, and other times I spend an inordinate amount of time reading ff etc.
My sister thinks I am quit nuts, but I figure it is a personal problem for HER.

LOL! It probably is!
Otterly Evilotterevil on February 12th, 2010 05:50 am (UTC)
Ithy ramble! Yeah!

TV? I think I remember TV...
Ithithildyn on February 12th, 2010 07:23 pm (UTC)
Square box like thing - well, for me it is. For others it's a flat rectangle thing.
Otterly Evilotterevil on February 17th, 2010 05:02 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I have a couple of those. I *think* they still work. If I turned them on, I could find out. But why bother?[g]

It's nice to hear you ramble:).

Olympics, yeah! Two weeks of very late nights:).
Ith: Art - Wildwoodithildyn on February 12th, 2010 07:23 pm (UTC)
It's nice to have one in our time zone this time!

My parents put up a kestrel house when I was a teenager. It was a big hit; it's occupied almost every year. It's about 20 feet in the air on top of a big post.

My BFF and I are Shawn and Gus, too! *squee*

Also, there are some Lassy/Jules stories out there. If I'm going to ship, that's usually my ship of choice, though I prefer gen in this fandom. SO MUCH AMAZINGNESS!
Ithithildyn on February 12th, 2010 07:26 pm (UTC)
I actually don't read the fic, other than the stories I've betaed for Casey [g]

I've got president's day off, which turns into a good thing this year -- it'll be the day of rest following the Olympics (Friday), Chinese new year (Saturday) and Valentine's Day (Sunday).

We have a sharpshin hawk at the bird feeder at work. She sits near the feeder and eyes the birds flocking there. Fortunately, the feeder is in a wooded copse, and she can't really get to them, as they've learned to fly through the copse into the nearby woods and avoid her. Still it's rather amusing to see her sitting there, glaring at the feeder. She's beautiful -- and last year she gave us the gift of a mate and a nest to watch as well!

I've been down fannish way, more from the distractions of trying to get life back on track than from a lack of interest/inspiration. May your muse return soon. And as for TV, ech. I may have to cut the cable cord. I'm down to two shows!
Ithithildyn on February 12th, 2010 07:27 pm (UTC)
Hawk glares [g]

Yeah, here's hoping!
I will call her George: Psychstrangevisitor7 on February 13th, 2010 02:54 am (UTC)
After Weds episode I can actually see Jules and Lassiter. She up set about her lost love and does she confide in a girlfriend ...no! she spills her stuff to Lassiter. That's the begining of a relationship.

We've got more Red Tailed Hawks than you can shake a rabbit's carcass at. Outside my window at work there is a "streetlight" by the rear entrance that one of the mother hawks uses its flat top as a place to show her brood how to tear apart small animals. Lovely.

We keep our Rose of Sharon bushes unpruned at home to provide cover for the small birds that frequent our feeders. That gives them somewhere to hide when the hawks check out our back yard. (The small birds also hide under the deck next to our pool, as do the neighborhood rabbits.)

We liked Psych this week ... what with the Simon Baker and Billy Zane references. I don't know why the Billy Zane reference ... Imhotep would have been more appropriate. Pretty train too.
