Nice Weekend

ninjababe was off yesterday, and works today, but her schedule was shifted last minutes, so now she'll be home at 5pm instead of midnight, so that is very cool! I'm making Cheese Grits with Shrimp for dinner with sourdough bread and Caesar Salad. I'm also going to try and make a peach crumble for desert. Other than that, I need to make a batch of yogurt, as I'm switching back to my yogurt regime now it's spring. My tummy will be much happier! Also need to do some tidying up.

Yesterday, Nin brought me home purple tulips for Easter! It was very sweet of her. she also got a stuffed plushy lamb to add to our spring toy collection -- the mauve bunny needed a friend. Then, since the sun was out for once, we went for a walk down to the lagoon -- Laguna Grande Park. We're going to try and leave the apartment at least once on weekends, even if it's just for a walk. We both need more exercise! When we got home, we had left over pizza and watched 3:10 To Yuma. We really enjoyed it! Highly recommend it.

I think tonight we'll try and finish up S1 of Rome, since we now own S2, though we do have the last three Torchwoods to watch. Nor have we yet watched any New Amsterdam. As for the rest of the day, I am going to try and make myself write [cracks mental whip] and maybe watch PotC or Bridget Jones's Diary or something. And hang out on the internet of course :)

Happy Easter if you're celebrating!

'He's A Pirate' (01/01)

I decided that writing a little ficlet might give me the musepiration to get cracking on 'Fondly' -- it's a theory at least! So I decided to write a wee sort of sequel to my Highlander/Pirates of the Caribbean story, One Day. Don't worry, this one won't make you reach for a tissue :)

Rating: PG
Warnings/Notes: Something of a sequel to 'One Day', but not not a crossover.
Character(s): Methos, Duncan, OFC
Summary: Duncan begins a new venture with a little help (a very little help) from a friend.

An 'Echoes the Sea' series summary can be found here.

He’s A Pirate

San Luis Obispo, California, 2008

“I give you five, no make that two, years before you’re bored silly and chuck it all for the big city,” Methos said, leaning against the granite countertop, a glass of red wine in one hand.

Duncan MacLeod just shook his head, pouring more wine into Methos’ glass before refilling his own. “You’d be wrong. Look, Methos, I wanted a change, new vistas, and this suits me fine.”
